tv   Shepard Smith Reporting  FOX News  November 3, 2015 12:00pm-1:01pm PST

12:00 pm
tim writes, is trump's campaign willing to consider ben carson for vp? if not, then who else would make the list? will mr. trump drop out of the race if he doesn't win in iowa or new hampshire? thanks for the questiones. >> ben carson jumps to a any lead in the poll. but if you're questioning how much that matters, you're not alone. we show you why polls at this point normally mean all together now, nothing. at least in terms of who is actually going to win. there's trouble at the tsa, as if you didn't already know that. new round of tests shows agents again fail to stop people from carrying weapons on to passenger jets at airports across our nation. >> would it be fair to say without compromising security that some significant breaches occur? >> yes. >> oh, yeah. tsa blaming pressure to get
12:01 pm
passengers through security more quicker. so it's somebody else's fault. not the thousands standing around. so what's the fix? a former tsa agent says he knows exactly what needs it change. we will hear from him live. let's get to it. >> now, shepard smith reporting live from the fox news deck. >> first from the deck this afternoon, republicans efforts to control future debates appears to be blowing up in their very faces. several campaigns refusing to sign any agreement as proposed demand have become a punch line for critics andsome more. last night at a democratic fund-raiser, president obama got a huge applause mocking the republican complaints. >> have you noticed that every one of the candidates say, you know, obama's weak. you know, people -- putin is kicking sand in his face. when i talk to putin, he's going to straighten out. just looking at him. it turns out, they can't handle
12:02 pm
a bunch of cnbc moderators. >> it was a big applause-getter. a leaked draft of the proposed debit agreement asked not to ask certain types of questions. to let candidates approve all of the graphics. even control the camera shots where the networks could show. several candidates say they will not sign any agreement. none of these four will sign it. not carly fiorina or john kasich or don al trump or chris christie. >> i tell you what, on the debates, it is very interesting, i don't care that much. i want a room and a podium. let's get going. i don't care that much. >> that's a real change from a few weeks ago. meantime, new national poll shows ben carson is the leader across the nation. he is ahead of trump.
12:03 pm
nbc news wall street survey was done before and after the debate. the second poll in a week to show ben carson is on top. marco rubio and ted cruz are the only others in the double digits. it is worth keeping in mind, it is now 90 days from the first presidential con nest iowa. a businessman named herman cain and his 999 plan, ahead of mitt romney in the polls. yes, herman cain of pizza. although, his time didn't last as long as trump's. one poll had hillary clinton leading obama by nearly 20 points. carl cameron is in d.c. there are other points of interests. enlighten us. >> well, trump is 6 points behind carson. that makes them pretty close given the margin of error. rubio and cruz are tied for third. not good news for jeb bush. he is in single digits at 8. the rest of the entire field is at less than 3%.
12:04 pm
here is a key indicator. long time viability is often dependent on likability. favorability versus unfavorability. carson is near 60% with the net positive. that's twice as popular as marco rubio who is second. you see trump there, third. at the other end of the spectrum, jeb bush. he has a negative of 7 meaning more people see him unfavorably than favorably. today, trump unveiled his book crippled america. and losing the news conference to blast rubio and carson. >> look at rubio, very, very weak on illegal immigration. you look at ben, very weak on immigration and he wants to get rid of medicare. ben wants to get rid of medicare. you can't get rid of medicare. when a man is weak on immigration and wants to get rid of medicare, i don't know how he stays there. >> that is donald trump going after the two men he obviously sees as the biggest threats to his candidacy. jeb bush is on day two of jeb can fix it reboot tour.
12:05 pm
he pretty much made it clear he will no longer stoop, in his view, to trump's level but will make the changes he thinks will not only fix his lagging campaign but fix the country. he sent an fyi to the press saying, jeb will have a few bad weeks in the polls. it takes time. so quite a difference in approaches when you look at what jeb bush, donald trump and ben carson. >> sharon, nice to see you. >> thank you for having me. >> oh, you're welcome. did you watch trump? >> i just heard him right now on fox. >> i watched the news conference, as it were. he is all over his competitor. i wonder how long your report indicates that might be able to play. >> yeah. i do think we are starting to see the effects of trump fatigue.
12:06 pm
i know people have been saying this has been coming around the corner now every week or so. we're going to see the end of trump. but i do think we're seeing that because that's what polls are showing. we are seeing ben carson who in some ways is a candidate type to donald trump. we are seeing him take the lead in a lot of the polls. think be sick of donald trump's bomb bat offic personality. not so much his, what some people consider very offensive statements, i don't think that helped extend his statement, but just his personality and they want someone who is a bit more after calm demeanor. i think that's why you are seeing the shift from trump to carson in the polls. >> do you believe eventually the outsiders, nonpolitical candidates are going to go by the way side and more traditional candidates are going to fill the gap there. >> i don't think they will go by the way side completely. if you look at how the primary process has played out in the last couple cycles, you are probably going to see one of them get the coveted -- the
12:07 pm
coveted three tickets out of the iowa caucuses. if there are three to five tickets, more tickets this year. traditionally the iowa caucuses give three candidates a chance to continue on to the new hampshire primary because they make the top three spots. i would be very surprise fed one of the outsider candidates donald trump or ben car sob does not get one of the top three spots. that said, i don't think he -- either of them will get the first place spot come caucus day or new hampshire primary day. >> at what point does the other side -- at what point does hillary clinton start to decide who to aim fire at? is that part of the reason for the delay, i wonder? >> yeah. i think hillary clinton will decide who to aim fire at once she knows who the nominee is. this could be a potentially long process. look at the number of candidates who are running. traditionally, like i said, three people have momentum and credibility to do so. the field is so big this time, you're looking at maybe five
12:08 pm
people. only a couple delegates in every one of the primaries and the weeks that follow. that means a long delegation fight for the nomination. potentially a few months. >> people shouldn't forget jeb bush has a lot of money, a lot of backing. good ground game to hear from those who are out there. is it your sense that this jeb can fix it reboot as he would like for us to call it, has a chance not today or tomorrow but in the near future? >> it has a chance. americans love a good come back story. you can ask john mccain about that. you can ask john kerry about that, regarding his nomination in 2004. i think they have something that jeb bush doesn't. an underlying enthusiastic base for those two candidates somewhere in the early primary states. you just don't see that with jeb. i think his come back will be even more difficult than the two people i just mentioned. >> thanks again. good to see you. >> thank you.
12:09 pm
>> it is voting day in many states in the nation. massachusetts has its own today. good to see you. the next republican debates will be on fox business network. trish regan and sandra smith will go do the undercard. neil cavuto and maria bartiromo. wow, on the fox network, on fbn. maybe it is never too young to teach your kids how to be independent, but leaving your 5-year-old in the diz eesert wi loaded gun while you good to the bar, not a good idea. a grandfather in a whole heap of trouble. we are gathering information and will have a fox news alert for you in minutes, from the fox news deck. arted.

12:14 pm
his 5-year-old granddaughter out to the desert to go four wheeling in his dodge truck. at some point the truck got stuck and the two took off on foot. when the little girl said she was tired, that's when the grandfather gave her the docock handgun and told her to shoot any bad guys. he went to the bar, had a couple sodas, a hamburger, and couple alcohol beverages. he never mentioned that he had a child. he even called his wife a few times and never mentioned the girl. >> at what point did the parent realize their daughter was missing. >> about four hours later app after she went out with her grandpa. the maricopa county sheriffs
12:15 pm
began their searches. a sheriff out four wheeling found the girl's mother and granddaughter who were extremely distraught. they looked for the grandfather's truck. he was saying they got out of the car, looked across the hill, yelled, listened and heard a very slight sound of a girl saying, nana. they ran, they got the girl and when they found her, she was fine. she was also still holding the gun. shep? >> trace, thanks very much. 23 states have legalized medical marijuana. four states have legalized pot for whatever reason. but no state has ever legalized weed for both purposes at the same time. ohio can change that today. it's super tuesday 2015, it is. and voters in ohio are deciding right now whether to allow adult 21 and older to grow and use pot for fun as well as making it available for medical uses. however, not everyone would be allowed to grow it.
12:16 pm
not under the ohio thing. limited to 10 predetermined farms across the state. any pot distributor in ohio would have no choice but it buy marijuana grown from one of those farms are however they buy it now. nick lachey, jessica simpson's ex is one of the two dozen investors here. if it passes, he of 98 degrees, would likely make, along with the rest of them, it says here, billions of dollars. billions. that's what it says. many marijuana legalization advocates oppose this method of legalization saying it undermines social justice and civil liberty goals. in other words, gives a bunch of money to a bunch of people and shuts everybody else out. the polls close in about four hours. if the transportation security administration workers can smuggle weapons past security, how in the world will screeners top terrorist from doing the same thing? that's what law-makers are asking today, as we learn of more failures with the tsa and
12:17 pm
airport security. so what do we do? that's next.
12:18 pm
in panama, which is a city of roughly 2 million people, we are having 5,000 new cars being sold every month. this is a very big problem for us with respect to fast and efficient transportation. it's kind of a losing proposition to keep going this way. we are trying to tackle the problem with several different modes. one of them is the brand new metro. we had a modest forecast: 110,000 passengers per day in the first line. we are already over 200,000. our collaboration with citi has been very important from the very beginning. citi was our biggest supporter and our only private bank. we are not only being efficient in the way we are moving people now, we are also more amicable to the environment. people have more time for the family and it's been one of the most rewarding experiences to hear people saying: "the metro has really changed my life."
12:19 pm
12:20 pm
we have new information about the russian airliner that slammed into the egyptian desert and killed all on board. the crash did not happen because the jet was shot down. that's what fox news is told. a heat censor from above the plane recognized a flash of great heat when the plane went off course then went to the ground. but there was no trail of heat going toward the plane in advance. so whatever caused the explosion came from the plane itself. a bomb maybe, a malfunction, something. we don't know yet. an islamic state affiliate claims it brought that jet down. russian investigators say it's
12:21 pm
too early to tell what caused the crash exactly. they still have to analyze the plane's black boxes. tsa screeners are great at finding the water bottle you left in your bag but not so great at finding bombs and things like that. remember a few months ago when screeners missed 95% of fake explosives. testers secretly smuggled through airport security. today we learned the feds decided to try the experiment again. guess what happened? >> what we found in a series of tests which took place across the country at different airports of different sizes using a variety of concealment methods by individuals who are auditors with no specialized training or skill, is that a universal disappointing performance by the tsa screening checkpoint. >> a universal disappointing performance. last time it was 95%. this time classified. but universally disappointing. investigators admit there were significant breaches with entire
12:22 pm
layers of securitsecurity, quot simply missing. they are responding with changes to the operations and training. which it said last time. tom blank is a former deputy administrator for the tsa. nice to see you again. >> nice to see you, shep. >> what do you do? i mean, if 95% of the time you can't find a bomb, what good are you? >> well, this is clearly unacceptable performance without a doubt. it doesn't seem to be getting better. you can blame the culture of convenience. they've lost the edge of security. >> they find everything that's convenient of mine and take it away from me. >> what the point is, the management seems to have failed. the supervisors seem to have failed. the equipment seems to have failed. and so do the actual tsos standing on the line.
12:23 pm
what you have to do is replace some people, i think. if you have that bad of performance, you have got to be able to get rid of the poor performers and use that as leverage to say, perform or else. that's not happening because first of all, they are federal employees, nearly impossible to fire one. then the obama administration authorized them to become federal public employee union members. virtually impossible to fire these poor performers. >> what if you put in the contract, if you're a tsa screener, if you're standing there watching for bombs and you let a become through, that's it, you can leave. we will have this agreement in advance. it seems rather fair. >> well, it does seem fair and i think you will see a number of opinion leaders on capitol hill begin to say, maybe we got it wrong right after 9/11. maybe it should be a shared public-private responsibility and. a whole federal responsibility. and maybe the federal employees
12:24 pm
would do better and be more accountable if they were private employees overseen by federal experts. >> so it is bad because of government? >> that's one argument that needs to be examined to see if it is playing a role. >> it sounds like a politics argument. >> it could be. in the bush administration we saw no security benefit it unionizing the work force. in fact, we found against unionizing it. the obamaion reversed that. so it is a -- >> so we are blaming the unions for the fact that tsa screeners can't find a bomb in a bag? it is the union's fault? >> i'm saying that's a factor because it makes it much more difficult to fire that screener who can't find the bomb in a bag. >> but if the screener can find a water bottle in the bag, if the screener can find four ounces of shampoo that can only be 3.4 ounces of shampoo, they
12:25 pm
do that consistently with great regularity and i applaud each and every one of them. couldn't they be trained to similarly find the bomb? because my guess is, they see the sneaky ways we get our toothpaste through there everyday and they figure out a way to stop us from getting that toothpaste through. but they don't see a become everyday so when one comes through, oh, it must be a clock radio or something. anyway, they don't recognize the clock radio as a bomb, you know what i'm saying? >> well they are trained on an ongoing basis to identify what an ied might look like, secreted in a laptop or carry-on baggage. the problem to get to the bottom of is, is the training good? is it fair it blame the screeners all together? is the equipment working properly? is tsa pushing the private sector to bring in better detection equipment? these are legitimate questions
12:26 pm
that go to other issues in the work force. >> yes. nice to talk to you, thank you very much. remember jon stewart from comedy central? he is going to hbo. he is more than "the daily show" host. he own had the thing. he will have short storm digital content. hbo officials say that content will be available through streaming services like hbo now and hbo go. as well as other plat forms in the hbo world. he released a statement, appearing in television 22 minutes a night clearly broke me. i'm pretty sure i can produce a few minutes of content every now and again. thankfully. president obama spoke for the first time about his decision to put special ops forces in syria. by the way, no change in strategery. the troops, he says, are not going to the front lines to fight isis.
12:27 pm
so what are they doing exactly and why does that matter? that's ahead. plus, the uber attack caught on camera. [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. that is rude. we showed you the video of this yesterday of the passenger beating the heck out of the driver. so who is that guy? run for the border! chalupa! taco hell!
12:28 pm
12:29 pm

vince of the flying branzinos got a bankamericard cash rewards credit card, because he may earn his living jumping through hoops, but he'd rather not earn cash back that way. that's the spectacle of rewarding connections. apply online or at a bank of america near you. . need to update breaking news. the picture of the guy accused of breaking out of jail in georgia. cops say he jumped out after prison van and took off. happened in lawrence county about 50 miles east of maken. police say sea big guy. 6'1", 220. last seen in an orange prison jump suit. charged with the death of a sheriff. the sheriff died in a shootout and police chase when the sheriff's car lost control. again, a manhunt for this
12:33 pm
escaped inmate this rural georgia. if you have seen this man, call 911. >> little kim, as we call him affectionately here, doing one of our favorite things and his favorite things, or his favorite things, not starving his own people or having his relatives killed, though he is looking at those, looking at rocket firing drills. here is little kim as i should put it, with his binoculars looking at things. you can see the rocket fired here. north korean state run media drills include airline units. he is happy. he got a kick out of this stuff. rocket so risky rocket scheme. here little kim heart it. he hearts it lots. finally, the north korean dictator pointing with -- wait, let me reread that. pointing at table with stick. that's the actual description that came with the photo from the north korean official news agency. it is not clear where or when all of this greatness happened
12:34 pm
because north korea. president obama says he has not broken his pledge to not put boots on the ground in syria, even though he's broken his pledge not to put boots on the ground in syria. yeah. the president made the comments in an interview with nbc news. listen. >> we have run special ops already. and really this is just an extension of what we were continuing to do. we are not putting u.s. troops on the front lines fighting fire fights with isil. >> oh. sew already broke the no boots on the ground promise before. this isn't new. it's an extension of previous broken promise. president obama said isis cannot be defeated until the murder dictator assad steps down np now russia is scaling back support of him, or so they say today, so they say, a russian foreign
12:35 pm
spokesperson said they don't mind in assad stays or goes and it is up to the syrian people who decide. the ones that are still alive after he barrel bombs them. oh, hello, handshake. isis cannot be defeated unless assad stays. >> translator: we think it is a serious mistake to side with assad. we should acknowledge that president assad's forces and kurdish militias are truly fighting. >> vladimir, you've never sounded better. to keep eye assad in power, putin even bombed rebels fighting assad. jennifer griffin is at the pentagon. it is good to know these are not promises broken, they are broken but we are admitting to them. it is better i think.
12:36 pm
>> it is so confusing. >> i have doubts it reflects any sort of change in their view and unfortunately, it certainly is inconclusive about whether or not they are prepared it change their flawed strategy. >> josh earnest's remarks followes a series of mixed messages from russian officials about the fate of president assad who made a surprise visit to moscow last week. >> translator: western countries should be clear. we do not intend to change the assad regime and it'll continue to hold power. >> pentagon officials who have spoken to in the past week say they have no idea what putin's strategy is in syria right now. >> interesting. we don't work with russia, obviously, because that's what we are told. but we know there was a joint exercise conducted with russia in syria at the site of our proxy war which makes it so convenient. >> at first when we asked about it, the pentagon wasn't aware of
12:37 pm
the communications exercise that took place today between pilots from russian warplanes and american warplanes. we learned it was the first time that russian warplanes, since russian warplanes began air strikes in syria in september, that these u.s. and russian pilots had carried out a communications test over south central syria to ensure they could communicate in the event of an unintended encounter. the test was 3 minutes, according to a spokesman. it not sure we can talk in flight if we have a safety issue. this is a day after the army chief outlined what he thinks is the greatest threat currently facing the united states. >> is russia a greater threat to the u.s. than isis right now? >> i said in testimony that i considered russia the number one threat to the united states. in terms of capability, russia is the only country on earth that has the capability to destroy the united states of america. >> the two warplanes over syria
12:38 pm
came within 5 miles of each other, we're told this is a planned test. >> jennifer, thanks. let's bring in former state department spokesperson. it may be ridiculous it keep harping on the fact that they are lying to us, but we've held other administrations to task when they've lied to us. and now these ones are lying to us. they told us no boots on the ground. there are boots on the ground. if that's the decision we've made, if you change your mind, then you've changed your mind. but doesn't history suggest that just lying to everybody is not helpful? >> well, i think there's been a lamentable lack of clarity from the u.s. administration about
12:39 pm
what i what. he defined u.s. troops fighting on the front lines. if that's your definition of boots on the ground, we don't have boots on the ground. if your definition is u.s. active service members of the armed forces on syrian territory, it seems that -- it seems that they're there. >> john mccain argues that-ksh well, the white house seems to indicate that the reason there have been change of plans is because that brilliant plan we had in the first place it arm and support the moderate syrian rebels, of which there were five or four, but if there are only four or five, that brilliant plan didn't work. so they got move on to another plan. but john mccain and others suggest that fewer than 50 in iraq and syria, that's not going to work either. >> right. i think the interesting thing is
12:40 pm
you have seen a shift. have you a new secretary of defense, ashton carter, who has been in place a couple of months now. he has been clearly more aggressive in putting assets to work at the goal of fighting isis. and have you a new chairman of the joint thieves of staff, general dunford, though very quiet, is also very forceful. i think the u.s. military has been clear for a long time. if you want to have an effect on the ground, strategic effect, you have to match it to the end. we are seeing that match get closer. >> is the argument that you just back off and let it happen, just back off and let them all fight each other for a while and maybe that will take care of it. is that something worth exploring or is that past? >> that action is what got us to
12:41 pm
where we are today. the vacuum, like others like russia and iran fill. and america has come to the conclusion if they want to affect the outcome in ssyria, they have to play in that space. the question i have is, is it enough and where will it lead? it's hard it imagine that 50 special operations forces are going to make a real difference and frankly i think that the pentagon's ambitions are a little bit more grand and we will see more mission creep. >> thanks again, as always. >> thank you, sir. >> u.s. senator, some of them holding a hearing today over putin's other war, the one in ukraine, deputy assistant secretary of state said there's been an up tick in a tax in the country recent days. despite a cease-fire and fighting between government forces an russian-backed rebels,
