tv Americas Newsroom With Bill Hemmer and Martha Mac Callum FOX News October 8, 2015 6:00am-8:01am PDT
go into the mirror. drop your pants and take a picture. you'll see your cheeks are different. >> don't send us those pictures. >> please. >> not on twitter. >> just an idea. >> see you tomorrow. bill: breaking news. russia upping the ante, launching cruise missiles from naval ships nearly 1,000 miles from their targets. those missiles flying over iran and iraq taking the war in syria to a whole new level. martha: vladimir putin apparently catching president obama off guard once again with a land, air, sea offensive. all of this power in support of the syrian regime and assad.
defense secretary ash carter trying to come up with some kind of response with nato saying russia's strategy is at odds with the united states. >> they continue to hit targets that are not isil. we believe this is a fundamental mistake. despite what the russians say, we have not agreed to cooperate with russia as long as they continue with their mistaken strategy and hit these targets. martha: gregg, how is nato reacting to this. >> reporter: it comes to me nato had an easier time containing with the soviet union than dealing with the russia of vladimir putin. they call it a strong increase in military presence which is a reason for concern which as you
mentioned cruise missiles and expanded ground and air operations. that includes u.s. secretary of defense ashton carter. >> in syria we have seen a troubling escalation of russian military activities. we'll assess the latest developments and the indications for the security of the alliance. this is particularly relevant in the view of the recent violations of nato's air space by russian aircraft. >> reporter: i asked the secretary-general beyond those word and beyond the defensive measures for their members, what else could nato do? their short answer not too much.
there has been more discussion of military and military coordination as we heard from the pentagon between russia and the west to deconflict those planes. there have been some close calls between russia and the u.s. this is the first time planes from these two countries have been in combat over the same country since world war ii. but the bottom problem is they are working at cross purposes. russia wants to get rid of the rebels and wants to prop up assad. the united states wants to get rid of assad and isis. bill: nato hold the crisis meetings. congress investigates whether u.s. intelligence agencies dropped the ball.
they are look at whether warning signs were missed entirely. according to reuters intelligence analysts were caught off guard failing to recognize the sheer size of russia's air campaign. hillary clinton's infamous email server was the target of hacker attacks from china and russia, raising huge security questions. steven hayes from the hill. americans had their data stolen while working for the government. how significant is this? >> we don't know whether these attempts were successful. these attempts were government related. they may have been your standard
hacker attempts. having said this, it doesn't matter who was behind it. as we learned from the government earlier this year, once somebody gets the information they leave it out there on the dark corners of the internet, and an opposing government-related source can get it. the fact that there were attempts is a bad sign though we don't know if it was successful. it raises issues with the clinton private server. she shows she was not particularly tech savvy. and that has all sorts of implications for her going forward. bill: this is what her team put out. one of several tweets. the associated twes waits to note hack attacks that might have been the sort of nuisance attacks that hit computer
servers the world over. it may have happened to you as an ordinary american. but one of the strengths she always stresses is her level of experience. how does that wha woe out. >> the federal government didn't even know it was hacked until months after it happened. these are on the ones we know about. who knows which ones happened that were successful and we don't even know about. cyber security is a major issue. she and her colleagues joked about cyber security hacks in the latest batch of clinton emails. it was something she knew about and did not take the steps to deal with it. let's step back. 8 months we have been talking about. we don't have a complete picture of the security she did have, why she did what she did.
but we are still getting the emails out in drips and drabs. this is not the way a strong leader handles a communication crisis story. but her dealing with the security issues in the first place, that's not someone who gets on top of problems with what's going on with her own operations. bill: i think you put your finger on it. eight months and no end in sight. when does this end? >> in two week she comes to testify to the benghazi probe in congress. she'll have a chance to put these questions to bed but she'll have to have a story that's coherent and stands up. every single version we have gotten so far turned out to not be exactly true or substantially different than the facts a month or week later afterwards. what she does in two weeks will
have to stand the test of time. the first type she sees breaks in that, this gets reviewed going into iowa caucasus. bill: two weeks from today is the benghazi hearing. in five days you have the democratic debate in las vegas. how is that going to go and how deep with the host of cnn get into this matter? martha: trey gowdy has wanted this moment for a long time. she claims she has waited for the opportunity to put this issue to rest. we'll see what happens october 22. in the meantime it's a big day with a big vote on capitol hill. you have three hopefuls make their pitches to become the next speaker of the house and replace john boehner. majority leader kevin mccarthy
has john boehner's endorsement for the third most senior position in the united states government. jason chaffetz and daniel webster also throwing their hats in the ring. mike he man whistle on capitol hill. how are things looking. >> mccarthy and john boehner have worked side by side with mccarthy being the majority leader. but some of the conservative leaders say if they vote for john boehner 2.0 they will be in trouble with their constituents. mccarthy is pledging to be more inclusive. so mccarthy is saying he will be more inclusive. he's expressing confidence he will get the votes today. the challenge will be to get to the magic number of 218 votes
three weeks from today on the house floor. martha: jason chaffetz said he believes it's difficult for kevin mccarthy to get to that number. you have kevin mccarthy and jason chaffetz fairly well known by the public. daniel webster not as well known. >> reporter: he's a former speaker of the florida house and he's being endorsed by the house freedom caucus which would give him 40 votes. webster said if he gets one vote, that's exciting. some conservatives are standing together look for leverage. >> we have been clear. we want the rule policy process. regular order was the word from everybody in our caucus. we want that on paper ahead of
time. that's been the big deal. >> reporter: three weeks today is about pick can the next speaker. martha: can you imagine what's going on behind closed doors, the conversations people are having to finish this deal. we'll be watching. thank you very much. bill: the "new york times" saying donald trump's act is wearing thin. maybe they should tell the voters or pollsters, because he's still dominating. >> they left g.u. intelligence information out of the information. it was al qaeda was decimated therefore it wasn't part of the threat analysis that should be started higher. martha: he says intelligence reports were air brushed to give a more positive picture of our
strategy in the war on terror. bill: ambassador john bolton on deck. >> the day general you will manny flew back to moscow we need a new commander-in-chief that will stands up to our enemies and have credibility. , u get there. join us as we celebrate eddie's retirement, and start planning your own.
martha: one of the biggest names in horse racing says it won't poll for the primaries. they seriously missed barack obama's lead going into the election against mitt romney. they won't say if they will poll for the main event last year. the pollster earned its reputation by predicting the landslide forward franklin roosevelt in 1936. we'll see where this goes. bill: a starting revelation showing russia's influence in syria. this general lobbied for snos could you to intervene in syria. according to iraqi officials he made the request with putin
months ago. john bolton, mr. ambassador, a lot to go through here. iran went looking for a friend, russia went look for a friend, they found each other. >> they have a mutual interest in trying prop up the assad regime. but for both russia and iran there are bigger stakes at play. russia is doing nothing less than aiming to get dominant middle east because of declining american interest under obama. iran has region wide aspirations and they come together. it's less important than they are carrying out this strategy and we are watching it. bill: i think was in moscow in early august. i remember this coming up in the republican debate in cleveland. what does that mean? >> i think this is very
significant, this point you raised. i think they have waited until they got what iran wanted most of all, which is a retched vienna deal on the weapons program. then they began some of these military moves we see unfolding today. i don't think we are finished, either. it's important to look at the region as a whole. look what russia did with a massive arms sale to egypt. russia is on the move, they see weakness on the part of the united states. bill: we just showed the video minutes ago of russia hitting targets from 1,000 miles away. barack obama a week ago said, putin, have at it. we couldn't figure it out and you won't either. i haven't had a chance to ask you about that comment. what did you think of his
response? >> it's a further indication that barack obama does not know how the world works. what putin will do by attacking the opposition forces in syria is bolster the assad regime. people say what a surprise they are not attacking isis. that's not their objective. this administration has misunderstood russia's relationship to the assad regime for 6 1/2 years and nothing has changed. putin understands he sees a president who doesn't understand the reality before him. clearing us out of the air space over syria. i think putin will keep pressing until he sees some response of which there is no evidence on the american side. bill: you wonder how effective russia can be with a severely limping economy back home.
you just wrote a piece, the tail end of your five-page story goes to how a republican in the white house needs to understand this. who best understands that now in this deal? >> i think we need more debate on who understands it. but our situation in the middle east will deteriorate furter in the next 15 months because there is no reason to think president obama is in a position or has the inclination to do knowing prevent this continuing slide of american influence. our friends and allies can see it already. that's why benjamin netanyahu went to moscow. that's why the saudis and china are talking to russia. they see the u.s. pirouetting to another region. our influence will continue to decline. bill: and look for an ally along the way.
john bolton. thank you for your time in washington, d.c. martha: the promise of obamacare was your premiums would not go up. now millions of americans are facing a very steep hike in immediate care. we'll tell you what's going on with this big increase in immediate care and when it will kick in. what happens when this driver has nowhere left to run to?
by a fiery and deadly accident outside of new york city. a tanker truck up in flames in new jersey. you can see that thing for miles yesterday. it burned forever. officers say the driver of that tanker truck swerved to avoid a pile of mattresses. it went through the guardrail and erupted in flames, killing the driver. martha: 7 million americans, numbers as high as 15 million will see their part b premiums which kofs doctors visits, surgery. go up 52% next year. this year individual monthly premiums are $105.
next year they will be close to $160. dr. marc siegel, you have got medicare a and b which is what most people pay for everything when they go to the doctor. many count on this. whose rates are going up and by how much. >> there are 50 million people in the united states that get medicare. those who get social security, every year if there is a consumer price increase, they get a cost of living increase to their social security. and that limits the amount of medicare payment. people don't realize your medicare is hidden in your social security check. people don't know what their medicare premium is because it's cut out of their social security check.
but when there is not a cost of living increase they are not allowed to increase the medicare. the law says the premiums have to roll over on to the 30% who don't have social security checks and they get huge increases. we are talking about somebody who spade $1. >> 4 a month and will now have to pay $150 a month. new people who are just coming to medicare are getting hit by this, and people who make more money will end up paying $200 to $300 a month. martha: it's a stagnant economy so there is no cost of living increase. this law which sounds crazy the way it's established. 70% of the people will see the
costs stay the same, but the 30% have to kick in and make up for the costs. who need to be aware that prices are going up substantially and they will have to make changes in how they are spending. >> three groups. the ultra poor, medicare, medicaid patients. new people, baby boomers coming to medicare for the first time, and people that make more money. martha: what's going to happen if they don't have that money. >> they won't be able to get health coverage because they have to pay. there is a big fight in congress about fixing this. guess what it will cost the government to fix this mess? somewhere between $3 and $7.5 billion will come out of the taxpayer's pocket. it will either come out of a poor person's pocket or the
taxpayers' pockets. bill: donald trump says he's not going anywhere in this race. >> we are going so fast in the wrong direction that this next election is going to be very, very important. i'm in it to win. bill: some think donald trump's act is getting old. what about the polls and what about the voters? martha: a former soldier said they tried to run him out of the army for blowing the whistle on what he said was altered intelligence to make the administration look better on al qaeda. >> that puts every serviceman and woman's life at risk if they don't have that information. >> it's critical information and it's important for safety and security, yes.
>> reporter: waterring came at several levels. change and altering intelligence is something we have been hearing and investigating for many years now. the men and women on the ground insist it's threatening american lives. for several years starting in 2010 former cent come analyst william kotel says he and his colleagues were told not to report certain facts in the middle east. a narrative that meant some significant terrorist activity was down played and wouldn't always make it into reports.
instead information about the local economy and environment which does very little to help paint an accurate security situation for leaders and troops on the ground. >> we were seeing attacks left out of reports. when i would talk to them by the or put it up through the command it wasn't being included. >> reporter: after several years of trying to choose the chain of command kotel expressed his concerns to the intelligence agency. he had his security scheerns pulled. >> it was a clear violation of the rules. i have yet to see the treatment that was afforded sergeant 1st
class kotel at cen centcom. '. >> reporter: he was charged with having pornography on his computer. the manipulation of the central intelligence reports and the crackdown on a whistle blower. >> somebody who is being a patriot trying to raise serious issues. now he's being retaliated against. >> we are supposed to do the right thing and the command is supposed to support that no matter what. but in this command climate you do the right thing and you will pay the piper. >> i paid the piper and i will continue to pay the piper. >> reporter: sergeant kotel was interviewed earlier this week and his claims jibe with
what here hearing being reported on the ground in iraq. martha: is the donald trump show beginning to wear out its welcome with voters? how can that be? he leads republicans in all the national polls. despite that some media outlets seem to be ready to declare the donald dead. the "new york times" wrote, "though he still leads the polls, he commands voter and news media attention by being his bombastic self is starting to wane." the suggestion is because they did a media analysis which -- for those who don't know, how many times was trump mentioned in all these different publications. the media maybe writing about
him less, they say because the "new york times" feels this is the only measure of popularity, must mean he's waning. >> this is classic "new york times" wishful thinking trying gin up a story where one doesn't exist. i think they see his strength is increasing. what became a sum early romance turned into an autumn romance. they are seeing him as a grave threat. they are trying to create an impression that voters have tiring of him which are not true. if you look at early states like iowa and new hampshire, and swing states like florida and ohio, he's building in his lead. martha: so this obviously is him in the gop race for the nomination. you see florida, 28%.
you have got ohio coming up next. let's pull up florida, pennsylvania he's at 23%. but let's look at one other thing. the next poll shows how he stacks up against hillary clinton. this is something people are paying attention to. in those swing states he loses to hillary clinton. what's your take on that. >> on the clinton data he's losing in one of the three states. the other two states are tied. the dynamic i'm seeing in the polls and for better or worse i spent too much name my career looking at polls. his support largely leveled off. people like ben carson, carly fiorina, marco rubio have come up a bit. the real question for trump is how dose build on his opening act. how does he speak to the
concerns $people have. ultimately these elections are about not only your persona but what you will do for the american people. i think it behooves him to talk about issue detail plans. martha: he's the only one who has come out with real specifics. i want to get your thoughts on the top three. fiorina, carson and trump. one of the interesting things we see happening here is their responses. we had dr. ben carson responding to what some thought was an insensitive comment. he said that's exactly what i meant to say. they don't back down, they don't try to back peddle and figure out what the right answers are supposed to be. >> that's a source of their enormous support. i hear donald trump has cross-over appeal to a moderate
candidate. their can dapt speaker is not just a shot across the bow to the republican establishment and voters will get serious about somebody else. i think it reason these three candidates have sustained over time is people are saying we gave the republicans plenty of time. we sent them washington in wave elections and they continually let us down. we'll try something completely new. we'll take people who are pushing back not just on the establishment but on the media as well. >> i couldn't agree more with monica. what we are seeing in poll after poll is 50% of the republican primary electorate are saying they are for a candidate whether it be trump, fiorina or carson with no political experience at all. is that an endorsement of them as people, though in some instances it obviously is, but it's a complete rejection of a failed republican establishment
and a failed republican party. one final point, all very good news for hillary clinton and the democrats. martha: a focus group of said they thought jeb bush was not ready to be president and donald trump was. >> this is unlike anything we have seen. martha: thank you very much, you guys. we'll see you next time. bill: the middle east unraveling. the house and senate both holding hearings on barack obama's foreign policy. martha: congress launching an investigation into why the united states was so caught some of guard by these moves by vladimir putin. who dropped the ball on the syrian invasion? lieutenant colonel ralph peters joins us next. >> he's so arrogant, he thinks his charm can bring anybody
around. active management can tap global insights. active management can seek to outperform. that's the power of active management. when broker chris hill stays at laquinta and fires up free wi-fi, with a network that's now up to 5 times faster than before you know what he can do? let's see if he's ready. he can swim with the sharks! book your next stay at lq.com!

bill: two hearings on president obama's foreign policy getting under way. a senate committee talks about russian strategy and military operations as russia continues operations in syria. we want to bring in mike huckabee. the former governor of arkansas. let's take one at a time. let's take syria first. the president says have at it, russia, you are not going to win, you cannot succeed. is he right? >> this president has been rolled by vladimir putin like a california sushi. whether it's the red line or russia goes in to prop up assad, the results are still the same.
putin is leading in the, obama is following. i'm not sure anybody, even his staunchest defenders can say leading from behind has led to anything but an unmitigated national disaster. bill: what would you do with putin in syria? >> what we should have been doing the past 7 years, maintaining the credibility of america. people need to trust and even fear the united states of america. they don't do any of those things because this president picked the wrong side in syria, he misjunked yemen. he pick -- he misjudged yemen. he announced his intentions in afghanistan which turned out to be a disaster. pulled the troops out of iraq without a status of forces agreement. i don't believe he was ready to
be president and i don't think his philosophical understanding of the nature of our enemy even gets close to truth. bill: but even then we have to deal with the here and now. with regard to afghanistan the leading in the general came out and disagreed with the administration's position suggesting a stronger force must be kept there for a much longer time. what would you do? is it 5,000, 10,000? >> i don't think you announce the number. any time you give your enemy and idea what your limitations are. you tell them what you are going to do, what the end game is, you maintain some control over how you are going to get it done better it's 1,000 troops or 200,000 troops, that's something you discuss with your own military. but the one thing you make sure is you commit whatever resources
are necessary to win. because america can't afford to lose and it's not just america on the line, really the whole world of freedom and peace is on the line if america fails freedom fails across the globe. bill: governor christie was arguing in new hampshire that a governor is what we need in the white house. i'm certain you won't disagree with that. >> so the senators are off to the side? >> for me they are. i don't think we want another person whose only experience is being in the united states senate. we need a governor who isn't afraid to make decisions and enforce the law. bill: that may be true, but what do you know about foreign policy that you could bring to the
white house that would be effective? >> governors carried out trade deals with heads of state and heads of multi-national corporations all over the world. they didn't just go on a junket where they were one of 10 people getting photo-op s. but the idea somebody who sat on a committee is able to have good judgment, he may have knowledge. but you elect a president for what he knows and has good judgment. the day a tornado tears through your state and kills 30 people, the day you have a school shooting or have a flood, and take in 30,000 people from
hurricane katrina and try to find them a bed, a meal and clothing. those are the days nobody wrote a book for, you are either prepared to make those tough calls and lead ... bill: 3%, will you make it main stage for the cnbc debate at the end of october? >> i should. by all indications i should be there. one of the challenges we face, these polls, based on 230 samples, i don't want the media or polls picking the next republican nominee for president. bill: mike huckabee with us today. martha: a high speed chase turns into a day at the beach. when he has nowhere is to go, he head out to sea. how did he think this would turn out for him?
stolen not so lucky. martha: it always end the same way, they always end up getting those guys. bill: hover craft? martha: south carolina on beginning to get an idea of the widespread damage in the flooding from hurricane joaquin. we have seen this so many times, it's the aftermath, the flooding, where the water moves. that led to 17 water-related deaths in the state so far. 11 dams have failed leaving neighborhoods literally under water. jonathan serrie is live in colombia, south carolina. >> reporter: in the past 24 hour we followed the floodwaters to georgetown, south carolina. what's driving this is this
neighborhood is located next to a bay where four rivers converge. so you have the floodwaters filtering into the low country. then you are close enough to the coast that the tides are playing a role. local emergency managers are concerned about an isolated community in the northwestern corner of the georgetown community. they have been sending boats out. but most of the 200 to 250 residents prefer to stay in their homes because they are on relatively high ground. martha: a tough situation. bill: hillary clinton not winning popularity contests with one focus group. we'll with play you the tape.
congressional investigators uncovering evidence that foreign hackers launched a series of attacks on hillary clinton's private e-mail server. this is new information coming in. i am martha maccallum. >> and i am bill. hackers in north korea and germany and china trying to break into the server raising questions about chief security. ed henry is on this. maybe you raise the threats because of the security threat here. >> this is cutting to the heart of the judgment of hillary clinton as secretary of state in setting up the e-mail server.
her campaign is saying the e-mails were not marked at the time but the critics say you have china, north korea, and others who likely wanted to get into the that server and you have from this associated press report what many critics expected for a while. it was only two weeks ago, a new match of official e-mails were released by the state department and we learned that russian hackers tried to get in as well. her campaign downplayed it saying this was a fishing scam where people try to get her to click on fake parking tickets. the threat is out there and we heard it from ron johnson on the show saying when you have bad information going out to the company in denver that was overseeing the server and this new company in connecticut we are learning about that was backing up theita data.
that is flying around. >> the clinton's flipflop on the president's trade deal in the countries in the pacific. >> i think the political legislation from the clinton camp is the first democratic debate is next tuesday and sanders is pulling it on in new hampshire and he is running to the left of her on those issues. she flip flopped and came out against keystone pipeline, flip flopped on the pacific trade deal. she is looking like a johnny come late though. one of president obama's advisors tweets this is yesterday because by breaking with president obama on a signature achievement, the ttp,
she is wishing at a pull back together the coalition he used to win -- african-american voters and students. >> we will continue to follow this. hillary clinton's poll numbers are falling to an all-time low. democrat voters are having trouble with her personality. >> what are you seeing? >> i don't want to use the word but it is like that women need to be equal. >> i don't feel unequal. >> this is a new hampshire focus group. and chris is here from the fox
news digital politics editor. other people chimed in saying they are tired of the woman, hear me roar line of rhetoric from hillary clinton. they say i don't feel unequal in my life or work. that is not the biggest priority for me. interesting. >> hillary clinton's original campaign was based on a woman's era and it is time to have a woman in the white house. the women and the country moved on from that. so she is not able to use that. she is trying to use i'm a grandma. i am like you. we are just like you. like it says in "people" magazine. i like to flip pancakes, have a daughter and i am a human being. >> i don't want to stay home and make cookies.
but now i do because i'm a grandmother and enjoying. 51% unfavorable and 39% favorable according to a usa today poll and one word that describes hillary clinton and you heard that lady had her own word. liar and dishonest are not nice. 13%. untrustworthy and fake is on there. she is fairing well and i think it is likely she will secure the democratic nomination, don't you? >> compared to a 74-year-old self-described socialist from vermont she is burning up the airwaves. there is a swing poll out yesterday and if you look at her numbers in that poll with the general electorate.
she is almost as disliked as donald trump. she beats him head-to-head though. i believe she will be able to drag through the democratic primary but not being liked means people are not likely to trust you, if they don't trust you they like you less, and you become the self-licking ice cream cone. >> her challenge in this is she is generating a ton of excitement on the campaign trail. she is going after him, trying to knock it down, and it will alienate those peopleing fir-- people further. >> i think this debate is going to be boring. hillary clinton is going to talk about how liberal she is and by
the end it will feel crazy. hillary clinton, the democratic establishment representative for the last 30 years, is going to talk about being on the left for guns and the environment and other issues. it will not help her with the general electorate. >> this is what the american people have to figure out as we go through this long journey with you. >> thank you very much. >> bombshell new reports that congress is investigating whether or not the u.s. intel community dropped the ball with russian officials part of the equation. that target hitting a thousand miles away. according to reuters, intel
agencies may have been caught offguard by the speed of the movements. >> how long did it take intel to catch up what the russians were doing? >> about a week. intelligence experts in the states could see what was happening in russia and new they were stockpiling weapons and people but thought it was an exercise. but by september 30th, putin forces were bombing to helping out assad. they are reportedly saying they saw some going on but didn't appreciate the magnitude. now the house and intel organizations are investigating why this wasn't caught first that this was going to happen.
this is something else that the american intelligence appear raterous may have missed. >> what is the administration saying about this report? they have addressed it? >> they say there is no surprises. that is included in the rioters report. yesterday defense officials admitted some american planes have been rerouted to avoid the newly arrived russians. >> peter, we will wait for more on that. there is a question on if we didn't have the intelligence to know what russia was doing and critics saying the president's plan in syria was flewed >> the president should put a
no-fly zone in effect. you can fight isis with us but if you are not going to get out >> could putin's aggression force the president to put up o shut up? ralph peters is next. kasich is here live to talk about the drop in the polls. is he surprised about the drop? you will hear the answers. >> the coast guard switching efforts in the search of el faro as grieving family members get the news they have been dreading >> it is heart breaking. it really is. &%c1 blp &%c1
the coast guard is ending the search is for cargo ship that sank during hurricane joquin last week. they only found one body from the boat. jeffrey mattias family held a vigil for him. >> i cannot believe something like this happened to jeffrey. >> the kids loved him. he was looking forward to coming home today. >> it is heart breaking. the little one will never remember her father. >> authorities are looking for
the ship's data recorder in the ocean now. there are reports that u.s. spy agencies were caught off guard by russia's aggressive use of air and sea power in syria. those are views from the missile launchers in the caspian sea. moscow has changed everything and complicated the strategy of the united states against isis. critics say the president needs to act quickly or putin will secure a powerful position in the middle east. >> he is so arrogant he thinks his charm can bring everybody around. missiles are reining down on
cia-trained rebels. >> lieutenant colonel ralph peters is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> where to begin? this has been a huge uptick. now you have missiles being launched from the caspian sea and that is making it hard to enforce a no-fly zone. >> it is not time to enforce a no-fly zone. it is over and done. if you declare such a zone in northern syria you have to mean it. that means being able to stand up for military confrontation with the russians in syria. our military could sweep the russians out of the sky if they were allowed to do so. but the danger is declaring the no-fly zone which putin would challenge.
obama will back down from this. i am not advocating military int vention. i think putin is well on the way to enforcing his will. the white house is saying putin is messing up. but putin will do what it takes. >> i want to put up a quote on the screen from an unnamed official in the administration according to this report says if the possibility of negotiations existed one or two weeks ago today we have in a different place. we have been completely blown out of the water. how did this happen? >> obama wants to measure out war with peace. everything he has done has been largely for domestic consumption. but even the airstrikes, they
have made some differences, but they are terrified of collateral damage, that it is just kindergarten version of warfare where every child gets a prize. putin's military isn't remotely as good as ours. but what matters is the strength of will. the will to do what it takes to win. for obama, win is a dirty word. for putin it is all or nothing. there is no compromise or every child gets a prize. there is a winner and a looser >> we should point out the estimate is 90% of the airstrikes that the russians are sending into syria are hitting moderate rebels which are several of the groups we have backed. they are cia-backed groups and not going after isis which is a falsehood. i want to go back to what president obama said about this situation before hundreds of
thousands, if not millions, were killed in syria. here somewhat he said during the debate in 2012: >> we have organized the international community saying assad has to go. we have mobilized sanctions against the government. made sure they are isolated. i am confidant assad's days are numbered. >> now what? >> if you go back to chicago and look at the communities obama organized. they are a mess today. he organized the international community and what good has it done? it is grim now. the world and white house is missing what is happening in syria. assad is now committed to cleansing is driving out more refuges. driving them to europe a side benefit for putin.
but they are in the process of depopulating vast stretches of syria of sunni muslims. get the sunnis out of there and make it shiite dominance. it is not genocide but it is cleansing with a genocidal aspect. if you want to beat putin you need a long term strategy you adhere to and guts. we don't have either one. >> we wants to regain the super power force of russia. there is a powerful coalition being built. it is iran, syria, russia, and china. that is the powerful coalition in the region, right? >> martha, you put it better than the intel has. we will promote you as head of the dia now. >> i don't want that position, i don't think.
>> putin's com pact coalition of iran, iraq, baghdad government, damascus government and syria, hezbollah, and russia is an effective tight coalition because there is no argument about when he will do this but not that. you have a major offensive with russian airpower overhead as the hezbollah, iranian and syrian forces are driving north and taking territory. >> there will be more to talkathon about on this front unfortunately. >> unfortunately. hillary clinton in hot water for these comments >> the nra's position reminds me of nugotiating with the communist. >> will that fire up the vote? >> a florida judge sending an abuse victim to jail and we will tell you why and show you the impassioned plea. >> i sentence you to three days

courtroom video showing a domestic violence victim to jail for skipping out on the abuser's trial. >> why didn't you show up to court? >> my anxiety. >> you think you will have anxiety. i sentence you to three days in county jail. >> i have a one year old son i am taking care of by myself. please, i am begging you. >> good morning. we have seen a lot of each other
this week. >> i like it. >> i do, too. let's get to that in a moment. you can see it on both sides. >> the back story to this is this woman is involved in a domestic violence situation. her baby's father chokes her and pulls a knife on her while she is holding the baby. he goes to jail. she is ordered to appear in court for the trial and doesn't show up. so the judge sentences her to three days in jail. this video hits the internet and there has been so much fallout because of this. a lot of people saying that the judge's sentence was too tough. you feel for the woman because she is a victim but she broke the law. it is a catch-22. >> three days in jail is a big cost because she has a one year old at home. >> a lot of people on twitter are responding saying the judge could have given her community
service. >> you wonder if that is an option because she has a one year old child at home and she is suffering from depression. you can hear the level of anxiety in her voice. >> it is terrible. >> there was a trial to take place and the jury had been seated and that cost money. >> and the reason why the judge was so angry with her is because her baby's father only got 16 days in jail and now he is out on the loose because she didn't show up to court. he would have gotten a much higher sentence. so it is a lose-lose all around. >> i can see how people are reacting. >> it is so emotionally charged as well. >> listen, thank yous for -- thank you for stopping by. i think you did a great job. >> thank you. >> we launched and we are still flying. >> we sure are. flying high. thank you.

largest terrorist group. most powerful terrorist group in the world. he also says that the islamic state has access to a large pool of potential recruits in western countries and that of course is a very big concern that he is expressing to congress right now. we'll keep you posted. bill: ohio governor john kasich is getting highest approval rating ever in his home state. even a lot of democrats like him but he is facing headwinds on a different front. new poll some of the buckeye state prefer someone else as first choice in the republican field. what does he think about all of that? i asked governor kasich a bit earlier today for his response. john kasich, governor, welcome back here. good to see you in new york. saw a poll number three in ohio, behind donald trump, ben carson. that is your state. what is up with that. >> my approval rate is all-time high. it is "american idol" primary.
it will settle down. bill: you have no reason not to believe that. >> i have no doubt. if it were true we would disrupt 80 years of politics. bill: we'll watch the history. new hampshire went from 12% to 6%. >> look, because polls go up and down. they always fluctuate. look, the most important thing in a campaign bill, i have been in a lot of them, not the headline, it is what's underneath. like a stage with no scaffolding. if you have no scaffolding when the strain creeks you can collapse. in new hampshire there isn't anybody that would argue that i have the best organization in the state. polls go up and down. we'll do really well. bill: 2/3 of approval in iowa give you approval. >> that will bo down too. you can't fix sate on polls. you have to fixate on block and tackle building organization from the bottom up.
up in new hampshire, i've got john sununu, gordon humphrey. i have a great organization. i'll be fine. >> you call yourself a troublemaker? >> i'm a problem solver, bill. you followed me over the years. i see a problem. i go and fix it. if i have to get in somebody's way to get it done, that is the way it goes. i balanced federal budget on way fighting with republican president, fighting with republican congress to get to balance budget. you step on toes. reformed the pentagon. i stepped on toes. i took ohio, flipped it upside down. after my first year i had very poor rating from the public. now my ratings are sky-high. bill: i call it political lazarus at that point, considering how far down you were. seems like candidate like yourselves you want to project yourselves as a fighter. trump is doing that every day. do you feel that's what the voting public is looking for? >> they're looking for change. they don't like the status quo. at the end they will decide who
can really get it done. you can always talk, talk, talk, pie-in-the-sky, everything else. the question, can you deliver it. i have improved ohio. i helped balance the federal budget. we reformed welfare. these are people want to have done. they want their children to have the a better future, not all the dead. simpler tax code. people lost job, they want to be trained to have better job. i will come out with stuff very soon, that will be exciting. bill: mental health and guns in america, will be a big issue when the president goes to reeseburg, oregon. where do you come down? >> i have invested a lot of resources and attention in my administration to mental health. the gun issue is deeper than the gun. it represents a disintegration of traditional things. families are separated now. they're not together. they're all over the place. neighborhoods, people don't know who the neighbors are. people don't know where to go. if you look at shooters, most
are people who have been isolated, angry, ignored. they have somebody in the family that can't control them. sometimes the family itself is dysfunctional. we have to get way underneath to heal the problem. it means stronger families. it means stronger communities. it means you and i sticking our nose in our neighbor's business. bill: dr. ben carson earlier in the week, suggested that if he were in the classroom he would go after the gunman. some people took of fence to that suggesting that he was insensitive. listen, if you stand there take a shot at me, i'm going to defend myself. >> look, everything is so sensitive today, you make any statement, everybody analyzes every word. i don't know exactly what he said but what i can tell you is this. i trust the first-responders. they know what they're doing. i work with them. they know how to handle the circumstances. they learned a lot all the way back from columbine. very to harden a lot of soft targets. we have to deal with the mental
health issue. recreate neighborhoods and strengthen families. bill: thank you governor. everybody asks trump whether he is in it for the long haul. are you. >> i'm in it for the long haul, are you kidding me? bill: thank you for your time. 62% approval if his home state. martha: yeah. bill: democrats like him to rate of 42%. he is pretty happy with those numbers, for now. martha: he said it is all about what is going on behind the scenes. pretty far behind the scenes at the moment. can he bring it forward. that is the big question for john kasich. we'll see. national league wildcard game, pirates hosting cubs. tempers flaring in 7th inning. cubs ace jake arietta, at the place. the pirates throw at him. hit two of their batters earlier. that is baseball. he is not happy about it. cubs are not either. a lot of pushing and shoving. some harsh language. umps settle everybody down.

jinxed it. martha: maybe only thing came true in the "back to the future" version. let me know if there is other stuff. bill: love it. hillary clinton stirring up controversy comparing the nra to hard-line iranians? that is not all she said. could this backfire? our panel debates her comment in a moment. martha: teenage driver speeds out of control, when her gas pedal sticks. her frantic 911 call next. >> it is starting to smoke. >> stay on the phone. >> smoke coming out of my wheels. >> stay on the phone, get out of your vehicle, okay?
my car will not stop. >> what type of transmission do you have or automatic or manuel. >> automatic. >> shift to neutral or n if you can. >> it is starting to smoke. there is smoke coming out of my wheels. >> i'm going to get fire going to. stay on the phone, get out of your vehicle, okay. >> i'm out of my car. >> you're doing a great job. bill: she did a good job. the so did the 911 operator. put it in n. turn off the car. thanks to quick thinking no one was injured there. martha: hillary clinton drawing ire of second amendment supporters during comments made in a campaign stop in iowa. she compared the nra to iranians and communists. >> you know the nra's position remind me of negotiating with the iranians or the communists. you know, there is no possible
discussion and it is for political purposes. martha: negotiation with the iranians went well. so here we are. marjorie clifton, former consultant to the obama campaign and principle of clifton consulting. kevin mccullough talk show host of salem media group, author of, no he can't, and columnist for townhall.com. good morning. >> good morning. martha: marjorie, take this first. good move for her. >> it is an interesting move. what she is trying to do, analogies used by both sides of the aisle. they are very effective. that is why they keep using them. look at iran and communists they're seen as black and white. we have done well with the iranian negotiations, winning new audiences and those opposed to negotiating with iran, because they were absolutists it's a winning analogying. look they will not bend either way in light of another shooting. what she is also trying to plug
on to is the fact that there has been dramatic shift in number of shootings we've had in this country, mass shootings since 2008. gun issues will be hot topic in the debate. putting it so, negotiation is also a big theme. which candidate can actually make the other side of the aisle negotiate. positioning nra as non-negotiating black and white. interesting strategy. martha: let's listen to another sound bite from this event. let's play that. >> nra tries to keep gun owners, the ones who are members really upset all the time so they can keep collecting their money because they tell them they are the only thing that will stop black helicopters landing on the front yard and people's guns being seized that is basically the argument they make. martha: kevin. >> says someone hopes to win political office with a black helicopter and men with guns protect her 24 hours a day. very ironic those with guns to protect them, constantly lecturing us about our desire
and right to carry them. look, roseburg, columbine, aurora, virginia tech, what is one thing they have in common? they all took place in gun-free zones. what is the one thing they don't ever want to talk about, researcher this last week, i reported on this did a survey inmates. talked to convicted felons. said, what is the likelihood if you think an area has lawfully-armed civilians, that you will commit the crime? goes down to 5%. if they see a weapon, if they see a lawfully owned weapon, the intent goes down 92%. incredible we have such overwhelming data, hillary to appeal to her base is throwing it out there trying to make nra bad guy. 300 million gun owners. you want to take them away. come try. martha: i think you're right, marjorie, this will be a very clearly hot topic in this coming campaign. think about it, only thing that ever stops one of these
shootings is when somebody shows up on the scene they have a gun. usually the person either kills themself or get shot by the person who came with the gun. that is what end up putting these things to rest. that is what ends it. i also wonder though, if this is you know, sort of putting other stuff out there that gets attention, to draw attention away from these other issues which is politically smart of the hillary clinton campaign because, they came out against the trade proposal that she had been backing prior to that now she has got really strong statements on part of nra. is that what we're seeing here. >> she is gleaning on to what it present and emotional and everybody thinking about right now in the light of recent shootings. one other point, i don't see candidate saying take all the guns away. they're asking for negotiation policy who get as gun in their hands. more about keeping those mentally ill or at risk from having guns to begin with. that is eliminating loopholes
from background checks and gun shows. that is not about taking guns away. that is the conversation piece. what can you give a little bit. since 2008, the number of mass shootings in our country has tripled, over tripled in fact. and that, i mean that is undisputed fact. that is something we look at, saying something isn't working because trending wrong direction and getting more access is not an issue. >> actually i couldn't disagree with that more. the idea that people that are not being held accountable when they use their in crimes is the problem. they didn't pick the state of texas to have mass shootings in. marjorie's state, this very minute, they passed a law this year where will allow lawfully licensed and credentialed gun owners to carry guns on campus same way allowed to in in rest of society, in the great state of the lone star state. >> not that i agreed with it. >> the character has to be part of the equation. if you don't have character, only thing that holds you to be
honest is accountability. only way you do that with criminals. not by guaranteeing to rout them out you can't. criminals always have access it things they are not supposed to have access to. only way to bring accountability every person the right to defend themselves. martha: problem has gotten dramatically worse. we have to figure out what is the root of it. >> agreed. martha: marjorie, kevin, thanks a lot. bill: we told you when we get headlines from the hearings we'll bring them to you. dozens of u.s. based islamic militant suspects using encrypted communications. that is the testimony on behalf of the fbi director james comey moments ago. that is general jack keane with his testimony about isis and russia and all the dos there in the middle east. more when we get it from there. in the meantime, jenna lee has a look at "happening now" coming up next. good morning, jenna. >> good morning, bill. gop presidential candidate jeb bush joins us as we debut a new segment on "happening now," asking white house hopeful four

for me this game bring as lot to young men that might not have opportunity or possibility to excel. so on my, my end this has been a great game for me. i'm thankful for it. bill: i'm certain it has. you're running these camps right now. you've been doing it four years. you affect thousands of young men and women across the country. what do they learn specifically from this sport that helps them grow as individuals? >> first of all, i've been doing it for 14 years in cincinnati, my foundation, leadership, character and education. it evolved off of that. for the last four years we've been going around the country. we partnered with the nfl. we're teaching young men and women the gain of football. we're teaching them what it means to be person of character. we're exercise, eat well. here is what you do on the football field. more importantly here is what it means to be a person of character. we've been in over 20 nfl cities. we touched over 10,000 young men and women. we have great partnerships, the
