tv Fox Report Sunday FOX News October 19, 2015 1:00am-2:01am PDT
o'clock and at 5 o'clock p.m. eastern with i'm patty ann brown and this is the fox report. the war of words between two republican candidates, donald trump and jeb bush, escalating on the sunday talk shows. trump again going after jeb for defending his brother, former president george w bush and his handling of the 9/11 terror attacks. listen. >> look, look. jeb said we were safe with my brother. we were safe. the world trade center just fell down. i'm not plaming anybody.
>> bush also accusing truch of treating his campaign like a reality show. >> mr. trump talks about things as though he's still on the apprentice. literally talking about syria saying isis should take out asad and then russia should take out isis. this is just another example of the lack of seriousness. >> bush adding a prediction that despite trump's lead in the polls, his support will eventually fate. how are republicans reacting? >> well, at the moment, some of them are pretty busy. six are focusing on a strong voter group as they gather for presidential forum in plano, texas. they're talking christian values and religious freedom.
he was a little less eager to pass judgment on the front runner's intentions. while trump may not be in texas today he did defend himself on the air waves. >> i don't want jeb bush to say my brother can't be safe because september 11 was one of the worst days in the history of this country. i'm not thin skinned. if i did something wrong and you said i did something wrong, i can handle that and if the press is bad, okay. it's when people hit me when i didn't do anything wrong. then it's not a question of thin skin. i will fight back. >> and fighting back is something jeb bush is doing. his campaign releasing a two minute ad, blasting the billionaire's ability to be commander in chief. the piece has blurbs pointing to gaps. he's proud of his brother's leadership as president.
>> my brother responded to a crisis and he did it as you hope a president would do. united the country, organized our country and kept us safe. >> bush went on to say that trump is an actor playing the role of candidate for president. >> what reaction are we hearing on the democratic side? >> we're hearing from hillary clinton criticizing her republican counter part, donald trump. said he's an oversized personality, overstepping any appropriate boundaries. >> i'm going to continue to criticize him for going beyond the bonds of what is appropriate. >> that being said, bernie sanders is in -- he is staying away from personal attacks. he took on a topic saying that it needed to be expanded.
>> we will have to see. live in washington. thank you. danld trump and hillary clinton have at least two things in common. both lead in the polls and have high negative numbers in the polls. could we wind up with a trump clinton match-up. there is more on the 2016 president of the united states. >> investigating the 2012 benghazi attacks. and new fire from democrats and some republicans who argue the investigation is unfairly targeting the former secretary of state. he says he's just trying to get to the facts behind an attack that left four americans dead.
>> three days ago the benghazi committee received chris steven and this morning on "face the nation," congressman tray goudy reiterated. she is just one part of this investigation. gowdy said the ambassador's e-mails are much more interesting to him than clintons. >> while violence was going up in libya, why was our security profile going down? it wasn't even staying the same. it was going down. i want to know why certain things made it to our inbox but pleadings that you put in place for more security never bothered to make it to your inbox. i think that's a fair question.
political pressures have steered the investigation far off course. >> i think it's a sad day for all of us because we made a commitment to the families. the families came in with tears in their eyes and said please don't make this a political football. that's exactly what happened. >> it's not clear if we will hear anything new from hillary clinton, that appearance certainly could end up being the most important day of her presidential campaign. >> thank you. a major announcement from the pentagon today. u.s. military officials confirming that a coalition air strike in northwest syria has killed a top ranking al qaeda commander. the pentagon says a saudi national died in the air strike along with two other fighters. dod officials say he funneled money and fighters for the terror group.
right now israeli police are investigating a deadly shooting and stabbing spree. it marks just the latest incident in what's been a month's long outburst of violence in the west bank. the israeli government is responding with new security measures including the building of a barrier in eastern jerusalem. connor powell has the latest from our mideast newsroom. >> reporter: the bloodshed showing no signs of letting up here. at least one israeli is dead and more than a dozen injured after one attacker opened fire in the central bus station sunday night. police killing the assailant but also shooting a man from the african country of air tray ya who was mistaken for an attacker. introducing a series of new
measures, erecting dozens of check points in east jerusalem and placing large concrete walls between arab and israeli neighborhoods. violence erupted a month ago as jewish groups push for more access to jerusalem's holiest sites. the effort enraging palestinians. john kerry announcing he will meet with palestinian prime minister and then travel. what exactly the secretary of state can do to ease tensions is unclear. police have described the attackers as young lone wolf individuals who are influenced by social media, makek it extremely difficult to stop. connor, thank you. syrian government troops making gains on the ground as
russian revelers. air strikes hit more than a dozen targets one of which was a funeral where at least four civilians died. forces tied to asad have been on the offensive since the military campaign began last month. the cia and pentagon say they are -- shows where russia's planes and missiles have struck. most of them are in areas where isis is not in control. right now tens of thousands are struggling to pick up the pieces after a powerful typhoon leaves a trail of death and destruction. and fake zombies were supposed to be the scareyest thing but the event took a deadly turn and sent people running for their lives. >> we heard two really loud
a manhunt is underway at this hour in florida after police say a gunman opened fire last night at a zombiecon festival killing one person and wounding five others. the gunshots caused a chaotic scene, sending costume levellers running for their lives. a lot of cameras out there capturing this bizarre scene? >> they did but there is still no suspect. police don't have anybody in custody and we still don't yet know of a motive for the shooting which took place in downtown fort myers. all was festive until at 11:45 p.m. when shots rang out.
that was amateur cell phone footage. you can hear the shots killing one man and injuring five others. 20,000 people said to be standing shoulder to shoulder in costume, some carrying fake weapons. another captured hundreds running for their lives running from the gunshots. >> we saw one person laying on the ground. >> we had probably eight or ten people that we let come in the barber shop. there was massive people trying to get in for cover. it was very scary. >> the fort myers police are
asking anybody with any video to contact them immediately. >> do we know anything more about the victims? >> yes, the victim is a 20-year-old football player at a junior college in miami. he consistently went to church, played the drugs and had no issues with gangs or drugs. the organizers are deeply saddened saying we take precautions in hiring security and police officers for our annual event. our prayers go out. again. the suspect remains at large. that was a charity event. >> so sad. brian, thank you so much. >> no problem. thank you. a tragic car accident kills four people in arizona. an suv plowed into a lake. three children were in the car along with their parents. two of the kids were killed. a 2-year-old boy is in critical
condition. it is not clear what caused the crash. an investigation is underway. a massive super typhoon rocked an island nation of the philippines. it was enough to topping trees, rip the roofs off of buildings and knock out power to hundreds of thousands of people. travel around much of the north half of the country is very difficult right now. storm surges and rains overtook entire towns. some areas could get as much as 40 minutes of rain. a retiring football coach digging deep for his last game. >> tight end! we're going to show you the
blood on the beach in hawaii. two swimmers suffering serious injuries in a pair of shark attacks takes place just hours apart on the same island. will carr is reporting live from our west coast newsroom. have there been a lot of shark attacks in hawaii recently? >> reporter: there have been at least a half dozen this year
that we know of. the first that happened yesterday happened on the east side of awau hue. a 44-year-old man was about 100 yards from shore. two nearby kayakers rushed over to help him. one used a jump rope as a turnaquette. authorities saying he is in serious condition. >> they were hanging on by threads just above ankles. >> the second attack happened last night in the water off wi key key beach. a man in his early 30s was foot and he's in serious condition. surfers are still on high alert.
they come after he lost most of his leg after surfing on the north shore of awahu. >> i felt like a truck ran into me and kind of took me a second to realize what was going on. he kind of dragged me underwater. >> cook says that after all of it he plans to still surf one day with the help of a prosthetic leg. >> wow. i'm not sure i would do that. nationwide, how many shark bites have we seen this year? >> there's been a lot in the headlines. there's been 52 so far this year and that's one away from the five-year high that we saw in 2012 when we had 53 and it's only october here. that's for the one confirmed attack that we had yesterday. we're told that was a tiger shark, which experts call the
garbage cans of the sea. they will eat or attack anything that they come in contact with out in the water. so when you have sharks like that, it's easy to understand how someone could be bitten and also the other thing that we want to point out that in hawaii it's only the start of shark season right now. in the past they've had bites going all the way into february. >> will carr live in our west coast newsroom. thank you. let's do fox fast forward, looking ahead to some of the big stories. monday, katherine greg, long time lover of whitey bulger appears in court tomorrow. she is set to be held in contempt. also monday, new york city mobster will stand trial in brookl brooklyn. he took a cut of the $6 million
stolen in a heist made famous in the movie good fellas. and oscar pistorious will be freed from prison in south africa and will serve the rest of his sentence under house arrest. he fatally shot his girlfriend in 2014. and the final plays of his 35 year career. first he made long time fan kyle stewart an honorary team captain and then with the game on the line he called the eighth grader's number, setting him up to score the winning touchdown in his motorized wheelchair. >> it was so exciting. he's my best friend. >> kyle inspires me, man. he inspires me. >> what a play to go out on. they say kyle rarely missed a chance to cheer on his classmates and he's expected to do the same next year when he's a freshman in high school. good for him.
donald trump taking aim at hillary clinton. >> personally i think thathillry w -- hillary clinton was one of the worst secretary of states ever in this country. >> both trump and clinton top the polls. both have very loyal voter bases and strong negatives with voters, too. is trump versus clinton, onece considered unthinkable, close to becoming a reality? we love it when you chime in while you tune in. hit us up on fox news social pages twitter and facebook.
they are hitting me in order to try to pick up something in their polls. the thing i'm most honored about is every single person who went after me including jeb bush, every single person that went after me has gone way down and i'm honored by that. that's what the country needs. the country needs a leader that when the country gets hit we're going to come out on top, not keep going down. we're going down. our country is going down. >> many political experts have said time and time again. and hillary clinton is still on top of the democratic race despite her e-mail troubles. could we see a show down in the general election. let's bring in our political insiders. we're trying to get the signal through to him. we also have doug.
let's take a look friday. trump leading at 24% but ben cars carson. so doug, will it be trump versus hillary? >> at this point, patti ann, that could be the case. there are state polls from nevada, south carolina and new jersey. and says 20 point lead. the situation every poll that has come out. and candidly, the american people are angry. the republicans are show iing bh
what you just showed from donald trump on the republican side. negative ratings of close to 60% going into the general election. >> very strange indeed. another national poll puts it in. and marco rubio in second place. to trump carson rubio and cruz. >> trump is still clearly the front runner and we need to discuss why he is the front runner. like four months ago, a huge majority of republicans that's a large portion.
number one, so honest that he was willing to st-- does trump there and work on words to try to shade what he says. it's refreshing. the only issue, will it wear off? high of appeal. >> all right. let's take a look at the polls. followed by carson and then rubio and fiorina. the same top four a different
order. and the same top four in nevada according to a cnn pole. do we have pat? what's your take on this? >> well, i think it shows that trump is further ahead in these than he is nationally. you know, the press has been trying to bury him all along. and just like they, you know, want to rest recolleurrect hill they can't stand not being able to do that. there's a real chance that we have to really consider that he will be the nominee for the republicans and she's going to be the nominee for the democrats and this creates quite an interesting situation. both have trust worthy problems although hers are much worse. as doug said they both have high negatives and they both are considered not caring about
people like individual voters and yet they are both seen as strong leaders. but, the advantage trump has over her is he is the outsider. >> and pat, let me just say about that, because i raise this a lot everywhere i go. and people say there's no room here for another outside r why would we not suspect that more odd things are yet to happen as we heat up? i remind people, ross perot did not start the larry king weekly escapade until february of 1992. by june he's in first place. so that was 25 years ago when the country was trampled. >> that was a period as john
says when things were not as bad as they are. we can imagine the alienation that is driving us and the mainstream view, the world view of the washington and the mainstream media is about 30%. this week on npr, a republican said, quote, a big part of this investigation was designed to go after an individu individual. >> frank wolf pushed to have this select committee and is a wonderful man. he's the guy that pushed and pushed and pushed to get boehner to create this committee. i can assure you in frank wolf's
mind this was not to trash hillary. it was to get all the answers that we have never gotten on benghazi. these two congressmen are the biggest idiots i have ever heard of. they have ruined the credibility of this committee. he has been successful in not letting politics into it. it's politics. you're just out to get me. your own colleague said you're out to get me. >> i just want to roll her latest comment on this. >> what are you expecting and how are you preparing? >> i really don't know what to expect. i think it's pretty clear that whatever they might have thought they were doing they ended up becoming a partisan arm of the
republican national committee with a -- an overwhelming focus on trying to, as they admitted, drive down my poll numbers. >> all right. john, as mentioned, the house select committee is headed by trey gowdy of south carolina and he says look, this is about finding the facts. clinton was the secretary of state at the time so of course there's a focus on her. doug, what about it? >> this is an opening that hillary clinton desperately needed because there are a lot of questions that the american people and the committee want answered. what did the state department kn know? what did she know? how did she react? how did she deal with the information? those are still questions that despite all the hearings that have gone on remain yet to be fully answered. and i say that not as a partisan democrat because i am supporting and would like to see hillary clinton elected but i say that as an analyst trying to be fair.
there are questions about her e-mails which will come up in the context of libya. >> mrs. clinton keeps mentioning there were several other investigations. there were seven eyewitnesss who were never questioned by any of these other investigations. pat, do we know all we need to know about the attacks that killed these four americans? >> no we
then you had several incompetent house hearings including one by hall richards whose wife was a consultant on the security which found that nothing went wrong. who came up? and she was the architect of the cover-up story about the fake video that is the greatest lie in the history of american foreign policy. now, somebody needs to answer that question.
when will republicans shoot their own wounded snp conservative republicans shoot their own in the back. >> we're going to have to take a break. a lot more to come. political outsiders seem to be topping the latest polls. how long can they hold on and now that the democrats have had their first debate, our political when i went on to ancestry, i just put in the name of my parents and my grandparents. and as soon as i did that, literally it was like you're getting 7, 9, 10, 15 leaves that are just popping up all over the place. yeah, it was amazing. just with a little bit of information, you can take leaps and bounds. it's an awesome experience.
as the political world waits with baited breath and with the first democratic debate now in the rear view mirror, what does it mean for hillary clinton? our political insiders are back. john, your reaction to the debate. i know you feel they did not talk about the fbi investigation of hillary clinton.
>> i think that hillary clinton, when she puts her head down on a pillow at night. they're not a possible nominee. he didn't think there was anything there in the e-mails and this has angered the fbi. they're professionals. they're doing their job. what we are wondering, pat, doug, and i is, is politics going to come in above the fbi at the justice department and the white house to stifle a legitimate investigation? >> it's a good question.
>> it was, she won the debate. didn't change the race at all. didn't eliminate. it was very disappointing. i was hoping that jim would speak for people like myself who are upset and who was a fool on the air. >> we're running out of time. >> pat, let me get in here if i can. this was a chance for bernie sanders to breakthrough and he didn't. she was able to say on the e-mails she was transparent without anyone questioning her. she was able to say that benghazi was a republican arm of
the national committee. that was totally political. she's gotten a huge bump out of this. will biden get in? his opening has gotten much more narrow, his road to the nomination much more difficult. i think it's less likely today that it gets in today than it was a week ago. >> we have to take a break here. we have more coming up. the u.s. facing a number of challenges.
russia's air strikes in syria increasingly targeting u.s. backed rebels there. now a majority of americans believe our national security interests are at stake. doug and john, doug, what needs to happen in syria now? >> well, we need to much more effectively support the anti-assad rebels and we need to say you cannot operate with impunity in syria and indeed in the middle east because candidly, patti ann, we're losing. with economists had a cover of the russian and chinese leades s and that pretty accurately sums up what's happening.
we are in bad shape globally. >> those men you mentioned, they have measured obama and they see him as basically a piece of tissue paper in the oval office that they can just march right through. i hate to say it. it's too late. >> the only thing that obama has done is said pretty please. >> the same fox news poll shows only 29% of americans agree with president obama that russia is weak and desperate but 52% of americans believe that president obama is weak and indecisive. go for it.
the fantasy crap that is out in the white house and main street media, and let me just say, every time he's confronted by evil, he waves his white flag. >> and let me say, the more it deteriorates, the more it will help a trump-like candidate. the worse the mess is the worse they say i can't handle it. trump is mr. clean-up because he's independent and i solve every problem and i speak clearly. this helps him politically. >> and i'm tough.
>> and hillary is going to need a defense policy of her own. she's got to do it. john, i predict as the general election approaches you will see her do it and do it aggressively. >> a good republican can argue that she helped contribute to this mess. we have final thoughts coming up. chime in while you tune in. hit us up on twit
final thoughts with our panel. 25 seconds each. >> when history is written, two events will be determined to have destabilized the middle east. the '03 invasion of iraq and obama's decision to do the nuke deal. both of them have ruined the middle east. both came from the oval office. >> doug? >> yeah, the russian and china incursion into the middle east through iran has been facilitated by a deal that president obama thought would buy peace and in fact is going to buy instakt and lead sooner or later, perhaps sooner, to a nuclear iran. >> all right. pat? >> well, the moral outrage that
should be felt by giving children and my grandchildren lives at stake and in potential nuclear war because of this deal. and by people who supported the president whose only interest was to have a deal and help iran is a moral outrage and we will pay the price mightily. >> all right. we're going to have to leave it there. disturbing thoughts. that's how fox reports on this sunday, october 18. thank you of course to our panel pat, doug, and john. thanks for watching. and the o'reilly factor starts now. it is monday, october 19. a fox news alert. killed with his own gun. sheriff's deputy shot ted inside a hospital by a man that he was
monitoring. what we have learned about the moments leading up to the gunfire. s war of words between donald trump and jeb bush escalates to a whole new level. >> for him it looks as though he's an actor playing the role of a candidate for president. >> that as trump suggests that he might have been able to prevent the september 11th attacks. and an elementary school aiaid hailed a hero. >> it was kind of like a super woman power thing, i can't believe i did that. >> how her instincts kicked into save an 11-year-old girl. fox a "fox & friends first" starts right now. and good morning to you and your family. it's monday morning. >> and thank you so much for starting your day in a brand new
week with us. we appreciate it. we we do begin with a fox news alert. terror at a israeli bus terminal. a lone palestinian opens fire at a bus station killing one, adding to the increased violence in the middle east. conor powell has more from jerusal jerusalem. >> reporter: after weeks of escalating violence, blood shed showing no signs of letting up here. at least one israeli is dead and more than a dozen injured after one attacker opened fire at a central bus station sunday night, police killing the assailant, but also shooting another man mistaken for and attack er. and is this after israeli further tightened security. dozens of checkpoints a
