tv Americas Newsroom With Bill Hemmer and Martha Mac Callum FOX News November 12, 2015 6:00am-8:01am PST
records day. a celebration of records being broken all over the world. it is my pleasure, guys, to present you with an official certificate for your brand-new record. 5,862 pull-ups. >> bravo. bill: breaking news. a major operation launched against the terror group isis. that is brand-new video. u.s.-backed forces storming a strategic isis group in a town. martha: sinjar links isis in syria all the way to iraq. it was the town the yazidis were
trapped in last year. how significant is this battle? >> this would be the biggest victory against isis. there are many difficulties ahead. the operation to free sinjar was supported bit s. airstrikes. they approached it from three side. the pentagon said they launched 20 strikes, killing 60-70 of an estimated 700 fighters suspected of being in the city. sinjar was captured last august and it's important because it links the mosul and raqqa.
isis massacred whole villages and eve enslaves thousands of wn and girls. >> isis can cover their territory, every inch of it with ieds. the other danger is the weather. when we were there cloud cover prevented airstrike. but military say they need 3 to 4 days to clear the city and. >> the week to take it back.
bill: trump saying he will use a deportation force to send 11 million immigrant back home. trump said president eisenhower did the same thing in the 50s, and everybody liked him. bill o'reilly asking truck. this issue. bill: believe me when i tell you, that was brute wall they did to those people to kick them back. it could never happen today. >> i heard it to both ways. i have heard good reports and bad reports. we could do it in a hugh main way. bill: steve hayes, a fox news contributor. a lot of people talking about this. y where is it headed? >> donald trump seems to dig in.
he seems to be sticking to it. it has potential ramifications for his candidacy but longer term implications for the republican party. this is a party after the 2012 elections went to great lengths to try to look like it wasn't targeting hispanics and adopt a policy that goes back to the 1950s that was called operation wetback. >> you are saying even if trump is not the nominee, this hurts republicans. >> you need to see how the other candidate handle it. trump didn't use the name in the debate but everybody knows what it was. operation wetback which is a slur. and you have a wide variety of views. you need a consensus to deport
actual criminals. he's talking about deporting millions of people. he says he will put together a deportation force. he's still talking about a plan that would require huge investments from the u.s. government. i think most people believe would be unrealistic. bill: is anyone taking a side, taking this position supporting it? >> we haven't seen anyone fully embrace him. but yesterday ben carson came out and said in effect he would give illegal immigrants six months to register. they would then potentially be eligible for some sort of guest work status and then could apply longer term for citizenship if they got in line with everybody
else. there is a split in the outsider group. talk about deporting millions of people here. you have seen ben carson take a bit of a different tack. bill: he did double down. steven hayes, weekly standard, washington, d.c. martha: deportation force is a strong phrase. everybody will have images in their find of what a deportation force would look like and how it would be humane in terms of how he would carry it out. bill: florida senator marco rubio is here. reports that he's now the candidate to watch. lots more to talk about. march there are free speech under fire on campuses across
this country as protesters try to shut down opposing views at their universities. it all started with the university of missouri. but now it's spreading to other campuses. take a look. that was the scene at ithaca college in upstate new york. they are calling for the ouster of the president at that university. then there is this. back and forth going on fat yale. protesters spitting at people who were trying walk through there to attend ironically a forum about if free speech.
at university of the missouri another professor has stepped down after spark an email about not giving in to quote bullies. the professor of communications stepped down after she'd called for the removal of a journalist and she professes to speak about free speech. >> can i talk to you? >> you need to get out. >> who wants to help me get this reporter out of here. get him out. martha: i love it when says actually i don't. this is a state university here and i can be here. bill: she picked on the wrong student and paid the price for
it. you can see a little bit of this spreading in different parts of the country. republican presidential candidate dr. ben carson facing new questions about his plans on foreign policy. experts say he has to get more detailed if he wants to be the nominee. martha: what you are looking at is a home that was destroyed. that was over a block away from that scene. the latest on this deadly tragedy. bill: marco rubio rising in the polls. some are saying he might be the one to beat. >> for the life of me i don't know why we stigmatized vocational training. welders make more money than philosophers.
. this is todd hardy. a fitness buff, youth baseball coach-and lung cancer patient. the day i got the diagnosis, i was just shocked. the surgeon in dallas said i needed to have the top left lobe of my lung removed. i wanted to know what my other options were. and i found that at cancer treatment centers of america. at ctca, our experts examine a variety of therapies, treatments and technologies to identify a plan specifically for each patient. my doctor understood that who i am was just as important as what cancer i had. we talked about options. my doctor told me about a robotic surgery that was less invasive. we have excellent technology that allow us to perform very specialized procedures
for patients who have lung disease. at ctca, it's all about what you can do. i feel fantastic now. exploring treatment options is at the heart of how we fight cancer. the evolution of cancer care is here. learn more about our treatment options at cancercenter.com/lung. appointments available now. martha: 13 people are in custody after being accused of having connections with an islamic terror group trying to take over iraq. >> i know rand is a committed isolation iftd. i'm not. the world is a strong and better place when the united states is
strong. >> how is it conservative to add a trillion dollar expenditure to the federal government that you can't pay for. how is it conservative to add a trillion in it in expenditures. you can't be a conservative if you are going to keep creating new programs you can't pay for. bill: some now call rubio the person to beat. senator, welcome back here. >> thank you. 237. bill: rand paul called you out on the cost of your tax plan in that clip. senator palms arguing what's so conservative about that? care to respond? >> the most important institution in the country is the family. it's more important than government or any other institution in our society. if you look at the problems in
our so sight from violence to academic performance you can track that down to the family the government shouldn't be doing anything that weakens families. i'm asking that people be allowed to keep more of their own money to raise their children. if you invest that money in a piece of new equipment for your business you get to write it off. i'm proud of the fact that ... bill: i think it argument from senator paul and others is whether it adds up. $1.5 trillion over five years. the "wall street journal" said mr. rubio's diagnosis of the changing economy has particular appeal to anxious voters. it's too bad his tax plan is such an expensive political pander. >> they are wrong. you can't just take one piece of
the tax plan on its own in a vacuum. you have to look at the whole tax plan. if you look at the business side where there is growth. it allows businesses to fully expense everything they invest in their companies. and small taxes that pay on a r. it it noiflts a territorial taxation so we can bring money sitting overseas back to this country. >> let's move to putin. you called him a gangster during the debate and donald trump was asked about this and whether it was wise with in bill o'reilly. donald trump i don't think it's a good thing to say it's a big obstacle. you have to go through that obstacle to get a little bit
friendly. bill: when you hear that, senator, is he on to something. >> no. vladimir putin knows he's a gangster. he smiled when he was asked about it. he said how could he be a gangster web's from the kgb. between the united states answer russia we possess over 90% of the world's nuclear weapons. he runs his country like an organized crime figure. he's not a partner of ours in a global endeavor. he's a person with very different views and very different goals than ours. bill: we talked at great length about the deportation plan on the part of donald trump. would you accept that idea or denounce it. >> i think both sides here have points to make that are valid. we have to deport some people. if usual not going to enforce
your laws, what's the point of having law. people who are criminals or overstaying visas will be deported. i don't believe you can round up and deport 11 million people who have again here 15 years and have not violated the law and can pass background checks. bill: this sounds a little bit like you are trying to ride the middle line here. >> i'm talking about reality. people will have to be deported. but we've also have to deem realistically that we have 12 to 13 million people. but you can't even get to that until you have done two things first. you have to prove to people you are actually enforcing the law and illegal immigration is under control dan you have to reform
the legal immigration system to make it merit based and not family based. someone who has been here 15 years, learns english, pays tax and is gainfully employed. but you can't do that until you get to other things. we deport people every day. bill: under any plan there will continue to be deportations. the question is the number and how you ar aggressive you are doing it. the washington pos"the washingtu are on the rise. and donald trump says you and cruz are his competition. >> at the end of the day it won't be decided by journalists. it will be decided by voters. new hampshire, iowa. south carolina, nevada and multiple states after that. voters are going to decide.
republican voters and primaries and caucuses will decide. but we'll continue to focus on what's important in this campaign. our message, our vision for america. bill: were you happy with the debate on tuesday night? >> i'm happy any time i get a chance to speak before people. bill: marco rubio on the road in south carolina. thank you for your time. martha: there are new developments on the terror attack that took down a commercial airliner. officials say we are entering a new phase on the war on terror. >> what made this house explode? >> i was in the shower, i came out and said the house blew up. moving off the shelves and your first thought is to investigate the company.

by a home outside of new york city explode. it's all caught on surveillance video. you can see the debris shooting skyward. the blast was massive. we are told the blast damaged two homes. no official word on the cause but investigators believe it was gas. martha: a source telling fox news investigators uncovered a two-hour timer that was placed most likely on the bomb the on that plane which took the lives of 224 people before the russian
airliner crashed. this opens a new chapter in the fight against isis. how has this bomb theory changed the way we look at the threat we face from this terror group. reporter: it's still a theory. but if true it would point to a new sophistication on the part of isis. building a two-hour timer on to a bomb and getting it on to a plane is hard enough. but this suggests it was placed near the plane's fuel line which would explain why investigators haven't found any explosive residue. they are look at the ground crew and those with access to the plane or the departure lounge.
they are looking to the find something to confirm what so far are theories about how the plane was taken out of the sky. it was unclear to our source whether the two-hour typer theory was based on surveillance intercept or physical evidence uncovered in jit. martha: we have seen beheading and taking people into captivity. we haven't seen this more al qaeda-like action on their part. reporter: exactly, and how is prosecutes its wars, if isis is proven to be behind it. it could prompt the russians to respond and take revenge. take a listen to congressman mike mccaul. >> we project weakness throughout the world and have a failed foreign policy, this is
what you get. we have chaos in the middle east, we have isis taking over in iraq, syria, northern egypt. it presents a complicated strategy moving forward in terms of protecting the american people. reporter: we are far from having conclusive information or proof about what brought down metrojet 9268, and if it is a bomb, who's ultimately responsible for it. bill: a pilot nearly blind by lasers. we'll tell you what's happening now. martha: dr. ben carson taking heat on his foreign policy. is he the candidate to beat hillary clinton? >> putting the special ops people in there is better than

bill: the hunt for suspects who shot lasers into the sky blinding the pilots of commercial airliners as well as helicopters. reporter: the federal aviation administration confirms two airliners were targeted. a chopper was on it way to cover a story when it was hit by a green light near the barclay center. meantime the chopper hovered in place filming two men who appeared to be laughing. they were later found in a basement and arrested. one was not involved and was
released. just over the river in elizabeth, new jersey, another news helicopter targeted and that crew tornado over the scene to keep an eye on the suspect and the police arrested two people. bill: there were other incidents in texas and dallas. reporter: three different planes were hit near dallas, all three making their approaches to dallas' love field. the laser came from 11 miles southeast of the airport. shining a laser at an aircraft is a federal crime. the faa can also impose a civil penalty up to $11,000. i spoke to a pilot who has been hit by lasers before. he says it's like when you are
driving and somebody has their high beams on and it temporarily blind you. martha: the u.s. is involved in a new military action in iraq to help strengthen them to achieve some of our goals. but questions are rising whether the candidate have a firm grasp of foreign policy, one of them is ben carson. -rise skills good enough to go head-to-head with hillary clinton. here is what he said on the u.s. troops fighting isis. >> dr. carson you were against putting troops on the ground iraq and against a large military force in afghanistan. do you support the president's decision to now put 50 special ops forces in syria and leave
10,000 troops in afghanistan. >> putting the special ops people in there is better than not having them there because -- they that's why they cull them special ops. they are able to guide some of the other things we are doing there. martha: dr. carson doubled down on these comments. >> whether it's enough or not, my point is if we have operations going on over there, they need to be guided. and the special ops people arets rather than have them being done randomly or by people who don't have a complete view of what's going on over there. martha: doug schoen, and monica crowley, both are fox news contributors. doug, your response.
>> he was obviously halting, uncertain. the substance his point is a reasonable one. we do need special ops it's a three-pronged war between those left in the free syrian army, isis, the assad forces. but it's clear ben carson is not up to speed. and if he's going to compete with hillary in the general election should he get nomination, he's not ready for prime time. >> he candidate has strength and areas where they are not quite as strong. i think that's particularly true for the outsider candidate, namely been carson and carly fiorina. fiorina -- ben carson and donald trump. carly fiorina is doing better getting up to speed. this may be a serious weakness going forward. it hasn't mattered to voters so
far when it comes to trump and carson because they are so compelling. but as of now it hasn't had a serious impact. martha: let's watch one more and get your thoughts on this one. >> we recognize's a very complex place. the chinese are there as well as the russians. and you have all kind of factions there. martha: are the chinese in syria? >> no, they are supporting the russians from a distance. what monica is saying is exactly right. i don't believe ellen hurt in the primaries, certainly with the early primaries by a lack of smes fisty or inaccuracies. but you can't run for president of the the united states and not have a knowledge base that reassures the american people. and so far he doesn't have it. >> when you look back at the root of monica's question.
you have been against our involvement in iraq and and. here we are in syria putting 50 special ops forces on the ground. a number people think is woefully inadequate. is that enough? can this get us there? 50 of these individual on the ground. he had 90 seconds of which he used 27. not a lot it was an opportunity. he's obviously a very smart man. he's been studying his whole life. he's a neurosurgeon. so are they studying enough in these areas? >> when you are talking about trump, the oval office is not the board room. and when you are talking about carson the oval office is not an operating room. when you are president you have to be good at everything. what her question was getting at
was trying to entice from them a governing philosophy, and what would your central organizing african be for organizing a super power. when you talk about special ops and engagement in syria. she was trying to get him to articulate taken overarching philosophy. martha: when you are up there with hillary clinton and she is arguing -- she is make her argument in terms of how she would defeat isis. hasn't been that clear on how she'll do that. i mean, what's hillary clinton doing say? >> she'll say she used part power in libya. she'll i she made made a mistake in going note for the iraq war.
she'll have a lot to say. but the republicans need an overcatching theory of the case like marco rubio that says what we have done has failed. the russians and iranians are on the move. >> we need to articulate it to the american people. in order to do that you have got to be. >> hillary clinton is very vulnerable on this. her four years at secretary of state were a complete disaster. she'll be on the defensive. you need a republican candidate who can attack that record and also for a compelling vision for a super power. bill: honoring a soldier for heroism. our nation's highest military decoration. more on this acts of bravery that went well above the call of
duty. bill: a u.s.-backed force trying to recapture a strategic iraqi town and split the islamic state in half to weaken it. captain chuck nash joins with his thoughts on this strategy on the battlefield coming up next. what makes this simple salad the best simple salad ever? heart healthy california walnuts. the best simple veggie dish ever?

bill: do they want as a bartender -- do employees want to work at these restaurants now? are they more attracted to them or not? martha: they get a higher wage. they don't get the $2 or something because the tips get added in. but they should not like the fact that if they work hard they would make more money. bill: major military offensive under way against isis. a brand-new video from the battlefield here. those are kurdish ground forces trying to recapture the iraqi town of sinjar. that's where isis committed unspeakable atrocities a year ago. captain, good morning to you. if this is successful, ways the
effect on isis? >> it cuts the main supply road from -- which is highway 47 from raqqa, which is the self-pro feelsed capital of the caliphate to mosul which is the capital. so you have cut that main supply line. bill: why would they have not done that already? is that an easy operation or is it difficult? >> it's going to take some time. because so much time has elapsed, that's why the gentleman yazidis were destroyed and humanitarian crimes against them. they have blame the kurds for not defending them and for retreating. but when they did, isis came in, they put landmines and ieds all over the place. so it will be difficult to do it. it's taken time to build up the
kurdish forces and get them to have the will to clear isis out of there. bill: what's our role in this? >> first and foremost we are providing the air power and obviously isis does haven't an air force. so we bring a real discriminator to the battlefield and we are providing session operation advisers though they are supposedly well behind the actual fighting. we'll see about that. bill: the americans, russians, iranians are meeting in vienna. syria? >> the syrians aren't there. one of the things they are going to try to do, secretary kerry is trying to push toward a political solution. the russians and the united states, we can't agree over
whether assad stays or goes. we say he has got to go. but rather than talk about that, why don't we talk about the things we can agree on which is a ceasefire and getting humanitarian aid in there. then who are the terrorist groups and who are guys who are redeemable and part of the politicalization going forward. that will be an interesting discussion. bill: which side comes down where on that? >> i think it russians are going to say anybody fighting against assad is a terrorist. and the americans are saying the terrorists are isis and al-nusra. the saudis will not allow anyone to call al-nusra terrorists and they are fighting against the assad regime. bill require appears the white house, the president wants to get a ceasefire. can he?
>> i think it's possible but it's not going to be u.s. persuasion or u.s. effort. it will be when vladimir putin decides that a ceasefire is in russia's best interest. that's when it's going to happen. bill: we went door to door in fallujah and ramadi. is that necessary in a battle like this? >> i think what the kurds are hoping for and possibly the u.s. advice to them, by cutting that highway at sinjar and forcing the supply vehicles to mosul and out into the desert where the gilings rough and slow, then you roll winter and wet weather on top of that and it becomes in some cases almost impassible. rather than doing that door to door work we strangle their supplies and force them to withdraw. bill: we'll see if that works. a great analysis there. chuck nash in washington, d.c.
thank you, sir. martha: it may be just early november gut snow is coming down in some states like it's the middle of winter. we'll tell you where the powder will be piling you have and causing a few problems. bill: the price he paid for two enormous blue diamonds. [♪] vo: know you have a dedicated advisor and team who understand where you come from. we didn't really have anything, you know. but, we made do. vo: know you can craft an investment plan as strong as your values. al, how you doing. hey, mr. hamilton. vo: know that together you can establish a meaningful legacy. with the guidance and support of your dedicated pnc wealth management team.
the man from hong kong called it the blue moon of josephine. we have to find josephine. martha: it's suppose to be clear. people say it's not a sapphire* it's a diamond. bill: i paid $49 million for it. martha: please let us know. color is the other one. a fall snowstorm causing problems in the midwest. slick road, strong wind tipping over semi trucks in iowa. damaging power lines along the way. blizzard conditions dumping up to a foot of snow in the mountains. so let's check in with alicia
acuna. the midwest hit pretty hard, and the system is still moving across, right? >> folks in illinois are bracing for this storm that is heading east. it's the cold wind making this all the more treacherous for folks. it is marching east. it's also bringing with it a lot of heavy wet snow. there is a mixture of rain and hail. they even saw a tornado along interstate 80 that toppled a semi. >> they seen it coming from the north and watched it go over the interstate. reporter: the storm moves out oath plains of eastern colorado causing blizzard-like conditions and closing interstate 80 in eastern wyoming.
investigators are on the ground in nebraska trying to figure out if a tornado did touch down in that area. martha: colorado was hit with it first significant snowstorm of the year. reporter: in the mountains they got to a foot snow just in time for ski season. down here in the city it caused the cancellation of 50 southwest airlines flights. this member of the university of denver's ski team managed to make it out for his regular run. >> we are trying to get ready for the championships. it might be snowing or raining, we'll be out there. reporter: in typical denver fashion, we are enjoying the sunshine even though it's 32 degree.
martha: good for the dog getting out for his jog. it's so warm here you don't need a jacket. bill: senator marco rubio gives his response to donald trump's plan to deport 11 million illegal immigrants. martha: this is getting so much attention across this country as free speech under attack on our nation's college campuses. what protesters are demanding. . (0209fox555a.ecl)
trump and his popularity who knows. i am martha maccallum. >> bill: and i am bill hemmer. trump defending the plan used in the 1950's by then president eisenhower. this is after he ripped into rubio calling him weak on immigration. >> people will have to be deported. but we have 12-13 million. you cannot get to the third part until you prove illegal immigration is under control. you will to prove you are enforcing law, prove it is working, and modernize the current system to make it merit-based not family-based. >> martha: bret baier is here
from special report. morning. >> morning. >> martha: donald trump said he would have a deportation force to carry out the immigration process we wants and compared that to what eisenhower did and that is getting him heat. how serious is this? >> first, it is donald trump who has loyal following. he has said controversial things in the past that have not affected him in any way, shape or form in the polls. this is more focus on immigration that endeared him to the conservative part of the conservative party as far as dealing with the issue. he points back to 1952 and operation wetback -- a controversial name now. it dealt with a million and a half immigrants and there was a
force to take them out of the country. it was messy and 80-plus people died of dehydration in the deserts over the border. it is not a great moment in american history. but it is something he is using to explain what the deportation force would be. i think this, and getting pressured on it by other candidates, is going to be interesting to see how donald trump deals with it. >> and it raises the question there is no doubt that he has a very large following that has him in the up 20% in most polls range of support. as he tries to eclipse ben carson and move up the question is will the rest of the american population go along with him given his stance on this issue. that is what you have jeb bush and mark rubio concerned about and others trying to play the issue more carefully. >> right.
he is down the road on the policy of how he would implement it. but the issue overall fits into his sweet spot. there is a concern in the republican primary about illegal immigration and they feel on the most conservative side that the issue is getting overlooked here in washington by both sides of the aisle. it is not just president eisenhower. a number of president have similar issues of taking one stripe or another and deporting them in mass numbers. but not to the extent of 11-12 million or more. >> martha: i want to talk about carly fiorina and the recent think she is responding to out there with the discussion that came up in a town hall environment where a guy raised his hand saying every time i see her on screen i want to strangle her and everybody laughed and
hillary clinton laughed and now there is a discussion about should she have laughed or told the guy that is not nice. here is what carly fiorina said about that: >> i don't take umbrage with him her hillary clinton. if this happened with a conservative candidate the liberal media would be all over him asking him to apologize. >> martha: i wonder if this is a difficult leelectoral issue. >> she is right about the double standard. we talk about looking through the prism of how the media would cover it on the other side. joy bay har is an advocate on the issue now for carly fiorina. it is clearly a moment. carly fiorina in the debates has
these really strong strings of laying out policy and laying out a forceful vision. but she doesn't seem to have the bounce afterwards. at least not yet. >> martha: bret, we will see you tonight. thank you. >> bill: ted cruz hoping to boost his support after what many call a strong performance. the senator in new hampshire getting ready to file paperwork to appear on the first primary ballot. carl cameron is already there are more now. sounds like senator cruz was sending a message to the entire republican field. what was going on there, carl? >> one of the first stops after the debate was kingston, new hampshire. a packed hall for veteran's day. he lit them up with opposition
to any immigration reform that includes amnesty. he makes the points cruz was against rubio's comprehensive bill and this is the beginning of juxtaposition of the two. two tea party lawmakers. they both had big tea party support in the senate. cruz is making that message clear to mark rubio specifically and hasn't spent a lot of time in new hampshire but has a following. this is the secretary of state's office here in new hampshire and cruz is coming in and filing the paperwork and a $1,000 a short time. lindsay graham was here and he did the same thing. he has dropped out of the first tier and lit into the republican and democratic party suggesting
by using national polls and taking the race to a national level instead of focusing on the earlier polls in lindsay graham's view the national party has a vested interest in trying to do away with the early voting where voters can interact as opposed to the big campaigns with national ads. >> bill: thank you so much. >> martha: new investigation into hillary clinton's e-mail. we are told the fbi is expanding that investigation to include possible violations of the u.s. criminal code. what does this mean for hillary clinton? catherage heritage is live. what are you learning about this? >> reporter: the fbi has expanded its probe we are told of hillary clinton's e-mail with agents exploring whether
multiple statements violate a statue. the same statue that got martha stewart in trouble when she lied. violations include pressuring a third party to conspire in a cover-up. it is not required the statements are given under oath. in this case legal experts and a former fbi agent said this applies if clinton or her attorney were not honest. members of the benghazi committee continue to press using a private server is a serious issue. >> it is apparent there was high level classified information on a server that didn't have the normal protection. secretary clinton's server didn't meet that standard.
>> the fbi is not commenting on the progress. the bureau is independent and not influenced by politics they say. >> martha: what are we learning about the independent review of clinton's e-mails? >> reporter: the government officials said the fbi is doing their own independent review of the clinton e-mails cutting out what is a grinding process at the state department. under the secretary for management, patrick kennedy, argued to james clapper in congress that the top-secret e-mails could have been pulled from unclassified sources. a u.s. government official not authorized to speak on the record said the fbi is identifying suspect e-mails and going directly to the agencies who wrote them and have final say on the classification. a former fbi agent with two deca decades of experience said the bureau goes to the source
because investigative protocol demands it. >> bill: there is new intelligence on the russian yet crash pointing to the likelihood of a time bomb planted hours before it went up in smoke. >> martha: the cost of health care in this country is skyrocketing and why workers will be the ones paying the bigger share. >> bill: and protesters taking down administrators and professors and the cause is spreading. ben carson speaking out on the issue today on fox. >> there is a level of intolerance for things that are not so-called politically correct that is growing and threatening our freedoms. we are not emphasizing freedom of speech and expression and most importantly of open dialogue.
>> bill: new video released in the deadly plane crash in ohio. the plane crashed into an apartment building from akron, ohio. all nine people dead seven from the same real estate company. the man who lived in the apartment that was hit was on his way home but stopped at the convenience store to by hot pockets.
he is alive because of that. >> martha: racial discrimination protests are flaring up around the country now. many of the protesters sparking questions about student activism and free speech on college campus. things got heated at yale where protest protesters sit on the people headed in the free speech conference. >> sending out that e-mail goes against your position. >> i don't agree with that. >> who the beep hired you? >> martha: i have a different vision than you. sterling beard is editor and chief for campus reform. sterling, welcome. good too to have you.
>> thank you for having me. >> martha: the issue at yale was about a memo that went out asking people not to wear objective halloween costumes. and you have have the issue in missouri where people were having racial comments and dissatisfied with the way the administration was dealing with that. all kinds of financial issues woven in here. what do you think is going on here? >> it seems to me a lot of college kids at these schools, a large university, don't seem to understand or worse do not care about the first amendment. even their own first amendment rights. you had dr. carson saying we didn't teach the first amendment enough. but then you have situations where you had a student journalist attempting to document what was happening in the public space and was
physically and verbally intimidated by students. students don't care about the first amendment and that is a big deal. >> martha: the teacher doesn't have her job anymore. she deals with mass media but told that guy that day he had to leave. there is talk about whether this is financial or what not. we are seeing this at schools all around. sensitivity in an environment where you are allowed to say something on the syllabus, a reading you are supposed to do, is a quote trigger warning for you. and you have the right to say that is a trigger for me, that book, and i am not going to read it. there is a huge kind of issue across campuses where sensitivity is becoming something you have a big right
to and nobody better trample on it. >> students have managed to weaponize their emotions. i am offended. you cannot say that. you had the student yelling at the master at yale saying who hired you. the man was trying to explain a simple concept of living as an american citizen which is the first amendment. but that is not important to the students. control is the important. we have raised a generation of parents under helicopter parent and they want them to step in and take on that role. >> what boggles my mind is i was reading one of the accounts here. a professor said i have been called the n-word more times than i can count this professor said. what strikes me is that is a problem. okay? that is not right. nobody wants to live in an environment like that. that is an insulting, horrible
thing to say to somebody. as the president of the university can't you say let's have a conversation about this behavior? instead we jump to this -- you have students yelling the f-word in professor's faces and not allowing them to speak their own mind. >> sure. racism exists. it is never going to go away. humans are fallible creatures and that sort of failing is never going to be wiped out. but it is important to use first amendment rights to criticize racist speech. we need the first amendment to speak out against it. marilyn mosby >> martha: one of the problems is the education is at stake. this is from "the new york times."
i am a pro-choice liberal who has been infigvited to talk at evangelicals and catholic schools and challenge them. liberal universities should seek out pro-life conservatives to speak so they can receive a challenge. i thought that was striking. >> it is striking but it is not happening. at williams college in massachusetts students were protesting a conservative speak speaker. that is unfortunate because students need to be exposed on campus. they need to see the conservative issues and thought there are other viewpoints besides the predominant progressive one. >> martha: they need to be
tested on is this what i believe? that is what college is about. it is very sad. we need to stay on it. sterling, thank you. >> bill: more than a hundred woman got pregnant while taking the pill. wait until you hear what they want now. >> martha: and remember the parking collapse at i-hop? more than a dozen cars disappeared? >> it makes you thank the lord above nobody was hurt but you realize wow. you know? this could easily happen anywhere but it happened in meridian. meridian. ♪meow, meow, meow, meow... it's more than just a meal, it's meow mix mealtime. with great taste and 100% complete nutrition, it's the only one cats ask for by name. big day? ah, the usual. moved some new cars.
hauled a bunch of steel. kept the supermarket shelves stocked. made sure everyone got their latest gadgets. what's up for the next shift? ah, nothing much. just keeping the lights on. (laugh) nice. doing the big things that move an economy. see you tomorrow, mac. see you tomorrow, sam. just another day at norfolk southern.
parking garage collapse at an i-hop in mississippi. crews are starting to lift the cars that were swallowed by a sinkhole. some say it wasn't a sinkhole. it took down more than a dozen cars and people said it sounded like an earthquake. >> bill: obama's health care is causing companies to cutback and workers' cost are rising. the average amount workers con tribitute to health care is soaring over the last years. melissa francis is here. this consolting group went out and studied this. what did they notice? >> the cost of your deductible
went up, copay, maximum out of pocket, and drug cost going occupy -- up and up. they say it has to do with avoiding the cadillac tax in 2018. >> bill: the cadillac tax is what? >> when you have a super great plan and the employer shoulders too much of the cost and you are getting it too cheaply. the government is taxing what they want to discourage -- that is what taxes are about. they were trying to discourage the generous plans. it is painful. they thought that would control health care cost. well all it is really doing is pushing the cost on the employee. >> bill: this is a shift in the fees and costs to the employee. >> because then the employer can say this is not a cadillac plan and i am not paying the tax. in the end who is paying? the working person.
this is what we see in this country again and again. the hard working middle class family pays the fortune for everything and in this case, too. >> bill: is it true? what did the study conclude about the cost of drugs and if more or less are being covered? >> less. 53% of employees restrict the coverage on speciality drugs and 33% more are supposed to. i have high blood pressure and take an expensive medicine they will not pay for. but the drug companies, and you are seeing this more and more, my drug company came to me saying you can buy it directly for a $1 a pill. you are seeing more and more of that. and seeing more and more of people paying their doctor directly and not dealing with their insurance company. that is great for people with money but terrible for those who
c cannot afford it. >> bill: isn't the administration argueing the percentage is still less? >> that is always the answer when it comes to health care. >> bill: money! melissa francis. >> martha: we have new evidence on the deadly russian plane crash. what it points to and why lawmakers are calling this a new chapter in the war on terror. and there is this: >> no. no. >> bill: this went on for more than a minute. that skier is alive. a 1600 foot drop down the side of a mountain. you will find out how he was able to walk way when he joins us live coming up here in 25 minutes. jeb bush: leadership means you've got to be all in. it's not about yappin'.
it's not about talking. it's about doing. i know how to do this because i was privileged to serve in florida for eight years. and we turned the systems upside down that weren't working. 1.3 million new jobs were created. we cut taxes every year. income rose in people's pockets. people were lifted out of poverty.en start. as president of the united states, i pledge to you that i will solve problems. announcer: right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message.

>> bill: some are calling this a new chapter in the war on terror. sources are telling us they recovered a bomb with a two-hour timer may have been put on board the plane. we have a middle east analyst and author here to discuss this. bm welcome back to "america's newsroom." what is the bestpiece of evidence that is suggesting that is a two-hour timer attached somewhere on the plane that led to the death of 224 people? >> most likely it could be two things. one on the ground and one listening to conversation. on the ground, russians/egyptians with western
help may have found pieces of what we call the virtual clock that is part of the time bomb. that is important. second, there is a chatter that the western partners have been able to hear conversations about that that specific weapon, which you have merge both evidence you may get that one big piece. >> bill: if this is proven what does it mean? >> it is a new chapter but not a new book. isis and others before them have tried to do the same. maybe not on planes but other locations around the world. it happened in southern egypt and that is the most important thing. isis has a presence in northern sinai and the egyptians could
have been infiltrated. >> bill: mike mccall has been saying he thinks it was an inside job. that is tough to stop if you think about that. when we reflect on our security at home, how will we deal with that? >> he is right to be concerned. if it is an inside job it is not the only agent on the inside. if you look at egypt in general terms you mind be worried about isis coming from north of sinai but they could have been hired from the national institutions and some egyptian experts have said they are not sure if this is direct isis or isis penetrating another group and that complicates everything. the numbers could be much larger of who have infiltrated the system. >> bill: isis did claim
responsibility. i don't know if it has been upheld by western governments yet. but they did not offer details. why not? >> well, that is a good question. and probably this would reinforce the theory this is an infiltration. isis claiming they know about the operation. they are not willing to give detail because this is not suicide bombing. the guy is not dead. they don't want to expose the person who did it or persons. >> >> bill: especially if it was an inside job. if the russians and egyptians can prove this how will they respond? >> russians have said they will respond where they are acting now which is in syria. more russian involvement, more strikes and maybe the alibi to put special forces on the ground. the egyptians are already at war with isis.
that would be the two responses. >> bill: thank you for your opinions on this. >> martha: he went above and beyond the call of duty throwing himself on top of the a suicide bomb to save the lives of his fellow soldiers. three years later we pause to recognize this man's bravery as president obama awards the army captain our nation's highest military decoration. the medal of honor. national security correspondent jennifer griffin live at the pentagon. tell us about the story. >> reporter: his colonel and delegation were visiting on august 8th. after landing, something didn't feel right.
he saw a man backing up toward the group and charged at the would be bomber tackling him to the ground and probably helped he was a runner in high school outside of washington, d.c. a second bomber killed four of his friend. the captain was injured by the blast. today when president obama awards him the honor in less than an hour from now it will not be the first time president obama has met him. he visivisited the captain at wr reed where he spent three years recovering. they managed to save his leg but he may opt to remove it when the prosthetics improve so he can get back to running. >> martha: what does he say about the recognition he is receiving? >> he is going to be the tenth
medal of honor recipient who is living. they all have something in common: they are humble. >> we were soldiers doing our job and reacted to a threat. we have to live our lives to the best of our ability because i am living for four individuals. >> you can watch the complete interview with army captain florence groberg tonight. >> bill: 22 minutes before the hour. a mistake that may have led to more than a hundred unwanted pregnancy. mothers suing a birth control company because of an alleged packaging mistake. should the company pay and help raise the children? our legal team takes it on. plus there is this: >> thank you all.
so simple. get the recipes at walnuts.org. >> bill: a group of veterans vising the george bush presidential library in dallas when this happened: [applause] >> thank you, all. >> bill: out of nowhere. 43rd president strolling into the room. the commander and chief personally thanking those vets for their service and shared a lot of his thoughts on why veteran's day holds a special place in his heart. >> i miss saluting those who wear the uniform. after we got attacked on 9/11, i made it clear we would defend
ourselves and millions volunteered. thought thousands. but millions such as you. >> martha: pretty cool place; the bush library. a birth control mixup sparking a massive class-action lawsuit seeking millions in damages. more than a hundred women in dozens of state claim a packaging error in their birth control pill led to unplanned pregnancies and they would like the drug companies to pay big time to raise those childrens including their education. i am joined by two defense attorneys. good to have you both. the claim here is that it is supposed to be three weeks on
and one week off and rotated in a way they were taking the pills at the wrong time and poof, next thing they knew they had a beautiful bouncing baby boy or girl. mark, you claim they have a claim? >> absolutely. this is a heart wrenching blunder caused by this company. let's put faces on the people troubled by this. you have a woman who is deployed and had to give up her baby were adoption. we have a woman expecting twins. someone who is in nursing school and law school and forced to drop out. a 17-year-old gave birth unexpectedly. this is something that was caused exclusively by them. you can read more about it in the book i wrote this morning "what to expect when you were not expecting". >> martha: are you representing any of these clients? >> no, but i will. i am upset about it.
>> martha: richard, why first impression was every prescription you take has a package with a million words saying you are taking this medication on your own and the ownness is on you. >> that is right. there is a process. 113 women claimed they got pregnant. the company claims one package was misplaced. the question is did any of the 113 women mistakingly take the pill? let the process take place before we have a rush to justice. there might be five, seven or one. just because people are jumping on the plane of the bandwagon let's figure out what happened. if there is one package here
something is wrong. >> martha: the company is claiming there is only one pack they found to be defective. it sounds like if you cannot produce the package it will be hard. >> i think it should be easier. my friend here is thinking it is not erroneous they would claim only one package. you have 94 babies and by pointing the finger at them that is what is done by the companies who know they did wrong >> martha: that is an assumption by the people taking the pills. >> that is possible. >> it is possible. >> it is a huge assumption. the bottom line is i thought i was on the pill and i will join the class-action lawsuit. doesn't she have to prove her
case? one package? ten packages? it was mischaracterized. they put the pills in the front and put them in the back. there is a far way to go before the company pays for 113. am i a zealous advocatiadvocate? absolutely. >> many judges don't even think the unwanted pregnancies are considered damages. it is considered life. and any amount money they have to spend to raise the child is offset by the joys of parenting. >> martha: i wonder how the kids feel when they find out their parents sued to pay for their education because they didn't want them in the first place. thanks for bringing your new book. >> should be a best-seller. >> bill: ted cruz making it
>> cameron was saying he hasn't spent a lot of time in new hampshire but has some support there. >> martha: nice to see it done old fashion. you sign the paper on a hundred year old desk where it has been done many times. he is there with his wife. >> bill: he is joining a handful of other who have been there as well. now, every skiers worst nightmare. watch: >> that man tumbles 1600 feet down the sheer face of the side of the mountain. guess how he survived? you will find out next when he joins us live. joins us live. ♪ everything kids touch during cold and flu season sticks with them. make sure the germs they bring home don't stick around.
>> bill: dramatic video of this skier dropping 16,000 feet down the side of a mountain in alaska. this is how it happened. >> no! >> bill: that nightmare free fall goes on for a minute. my next guest said he walked away with a few bruises. say hello to ian macintosh. you were shooting a movie at the time. microphones and cameras on.
you are trying to beat the dying light that day. at the top of the run, you jump in and what happened next? >> well, you know, there is a lot of shadows on that slope. we only had a 15-minute window of light on the slope because it was north facing. we were pushing all of the protocols. i skipped a few steps studying the line. when i dropped in everything looked funny. it was flat light i was skiing into it. my eyes started playing tricks and because i had not done my proper homework i got offline a little and that was it. i fell into a five-foot trench. >> bill: why do you think you missed that? shadows? is that the answer? >> the shadows were playing huge tricks with my eyes and the light. i didn't do my homework. i was in a rush. i saw this line as this trophy,
this crown jewel of the zone we were in. i rushed and pushed and my protocol. lesson learned. >> bill: lesson learned indeed. i read it felt like you were being hit by linebackers. what was going on there? >> well, you know, at hat point, when i went down, i knew i was falling to the bottom of the mountain. there is no stopping to the bottom. i prepared myself. it looked soft in the video footage but it was hard packed snow underneath. i was getting beat up the whole way down. >> bill: you said it felt like forever. i can imagine. you had an airbag that saved your life. >> potentially. i pulled the airbag which we normally use in avalanche situations. i pulled it just hoping it would potentially help me, you know, against any potential traumatic
injuries. whether or not it did, i am not too sure but i am glad i have it. >> bill: do you have a death wish? >> i do not have a death wish. if you want to be at the top of the game in big mountain skiing you have to be prepared to take the hits. i am living my dream. i travel the world doing what i love. this is just part of the game. you have to be prepared to take hits. >> bill: you are tough. thank you, ian, for coming in. our viewers should know you were back on the mountain two days later >> you cannot get this discourage you. you learn from mistakes in live and move forward. back two days later, we finished filming the rest of the segment and we will premier that tonight. >> bill: thank you very much.
>> bill: thank you very much. the day i got the diagnosis, i was just shocked. the surgeon in dallas said i needed to have the top left lobe of my lung removed. i wanted to know what my other options were. and i found that at cancer treatment centers of america. at ctca, our experts examine a variety of therapies, treatments and technologies to identify a plan specifically for each patient. my doctor understood that who i am was just as important as what cancer i had. we talked about options. my doctor told me about a robotic surgery that was less invasive. we have excellent technology that allow us to perform very specialized procedures for patients who have lung disease. at ctca, it's all about what you can do. i feel fantastic now. exploring treatment options is at the heart of how we fight cancer. the evolution of cancer care is here. learn more about our treatment options at cancercenter.com/lung. appointments available now.
