since midnight 7,500 wreaths have been donated. still about 10,000 short. if you would like to donate, head to wreathsacrossamerica.org. each one $15. >> we want to open up tomorrow's show good news about that bill: good morning. world leaders gathering in the city that was a target of terrorism. the enemy is not isis, but climate change. heather: i'm heather chilleddern for martha maccallum. bill: listen to the president and republican candidate carly
fiorina. >> what a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one and shows we'll not be deterred from building a better future for our children. >> it's delusional for president obama and hillary clinton or anyone else to say clue that change is our most severe near-term security threat. he somehow thinks our behavior is the threat so the climate change summit provide a rebuke. no it doesn't other than providing a target. heather: the president is trying to draw a connection between the war and terror and climate change. how is he going to bridge that gap? >> it won't be easy. and in some way with the it will be impossible.
supporters and critics presume there is a connection between the two, global terror and climate change. and if they don't do something immediately it will create a more unstable economy. the president will be meeting on the sidelines with a number of world leaders including the top emitters of greenhouse gas. along with the u.s. that would be china and india as well. this is happening in a city that two weeks ago was rocked which they are trying to eliminate through doopt cooperative policies. >> nothing will deter us from building the future we want for our children.
reporter: how that is accomplished, this is the old adage, the devil is in the details. heather: some argue for all the talk about the terrorism, the president has been woefully short on the subject. what does the white house have to say about that. reporter: they are doing everything that is within the framework of how to approach the problem. the stakeholders, without commit he hundreds of thousands of american troops and the risks associated with that. but the critics argue that's a tread water strategy that won't work. >> president obama made it clear he wants to maintain the course he's been upon which is to do as little as possible and keep the
lid on at a i amer until the next president is in place. reporter: he's going to meet with russian president vladimir putin. but the question is will it make a difference in. bill: long before the climate summit president obama took heat for his stand on climate change when he said this. >> climate change constitutes a threat to global security. an immediate risk on global security and it will impact how our it in defense our country. the president received this meeting will send a powerful message in islamic terrorists. in what way exactly? >> it's not entirely clear. you heard carly fiorina scoff at that. and republicans have been doubtful about anything the president says about climate
change. but there is no doubt the president has been look fear second-term accomplishment. at first he thought it would be immigration or gun control. he's trying to change the subject back to globalling warming. -- global warming. he's trying say that being there is a big rebuke to terrorists. bill: can we reverse it or not? what will countries demand? what will countries concede? there is a reason why they haven't been able to nail this down. >> countries like china aimed yeah are the biggest emitters
along with the united states on the planet and they have been vague about how much they will cut their emissions and when. and that's not going to change in this deal. president obama hoped he could come home from paris with a big climate deal and the president pinned a lot of his hopes for this on his own domestic unilateral executive actions which he announced in congress. bill: we went to the website in alaska and either had a story about climate change. it said fairbanks has the third most snowfall for this time of year. 50 inches of snow has officially
fallen through thanksgiving day. since records began that ranks only between 1970 and 1992. the president talked about his trip to alaska a few months ago. we are in a campaign season. where do voters rank these issues. do they care about them? >> you are right about the voters. the problem for the president is the voters don't rank climate change very high on their list of concerns. a fox news poll found climate change was tide for 7th among the most important concerns facing the nation. just 3% said it was the top concern. among democrats it was tied for fifth. that is kind after political
head wind that the president is always going against. bill: 8 minutes past. heather: the man accused of opening fire at a planned parenthood is facing a judge. he triggered a 5-hour standoff. what can we expect in court today? reporter: he's being held on no bond in the county jail today. he's set to appear in court at 1:30. the big question is motive. why did he storm the planned parenthood. they searched his trailer in park county, colorado. and they are painting a pic of a loner who liked to live off
the grid. after the shooting he turned himself over and apparently told investigators no more body parts in reference to the national controversy swirling around planned parenthood. heather: what are we learning about the victims. reporter: we heard from friends and family members of those who were shot and killed. all three were parents. per swayze -- officer swayze died racing toward the gunfire. stuart served one tour in iraq. he was shot when he went back inside' trying to save lives.
>> it was unreal. about 400, almost half a million people here and it happened to be my brother. its random. jennifer was a stay at home mom who friend say was dedicated to her kids. bill: hateful rhetoric is being blamed on republican candidates. >> there has been vicious rhetoric on the left blames those who are pro-life. the media wants to blame him on proaft life movement. >> i think he's a sick person and probably a person ready to go. he's an extremist and this was as man who they said prior to this that he was mentally
disturbed. >> regardless of why he did it, what he did is domestic terrorism and we did is adam d s abominible, especially to those of us in the pro-life movement. heather: still to come, a new terror alert for americans overseas. the u.s. embassy in afghanistan warning of an imminent attack. >> we have no strategy. i don't think you can find anybody in the world outside of the administration that could attempt to state what america's strategy is. bill: a pop republican say -- a top republican says president obama's claims isis is contained
are wrong. heather: thousands plunged into darkness. limbs cracking. our truck? it's touring across america telling people about idaho potatoes. farmer: let's go boy. again this year the big idaho potato truck is traveling the country spreading the word about heart healthy idaho potatoes and making donations to local charities. excuse me miss, have you seen our truck? you just missed it. ahhh! aw man are you kiddin' me?

citizens to use caution when moving around kabul. the state department warning against travel to the country, telling americans, if you are already there, consider leaving. >> isis is in 30 different countries. they have got a reach that goes throughout europe and north america. so to talk about containment is a joke. the reality is isis may be geographically contained in syria, iraq. but their efforts around the world to project terrorism and to connect terrorism is as robust today as it's ever been. bill: referring to comments president obama made only hours before the terror attacks in paris. john sununu, author of "the
quiet man." good morning to you. i guess containment is fungible these days. >> senator bird is right. we have a president who does not understand the conflicts around the world and acts of terrorism are serious items and he's chasing climate change. we had the russians flying air attacks against the rebels wire supporting in syria. so we have an extremely dangerous situation with the russians opposing the people the u.s. is supporting. we could end up with a russian fighter being shot down by the turks. this president ignores this
reality. the tomorrow common thread is both russia and the u.s. are attacking isis in syria. but it's a disaster and he has no idea what he's doing. bill: you can likely over timely nate raqqa, their stronghold. but then you will have to find your way to months you will and that will be the target next. then the third target will be a growing threat in libya that no one is talking about. >> the world is on fire from terrorism and acts of violence and war. and this president thinks the most important thing he can do is fly to paris and talk about climate change which a lot of people are beginning to find out may be the result of folks diddling with the temperature data. bill: do you think about the moves and actions that have
happened since paris was hit. urging turkey to seal that border. it seems that the message is starting to be received. do you agree? >> he's beginning to panic. because what we are seeing is such a disastrous situation around the world that he is as the president is wouldn' wont t, concern about his legacy and he wants to shore things up the last 12 months. but what he's done with his inaction and bad action, giving license to terrorists and people who want to do bad things to the u.s., i'm afraid we are in for a difficult year. unfortunately perhaps even here at home. bill: you can get the safe haven no-fly zone, and you can help
the refugee fly out of syria. as ben carson proved over the weekend, the refugees in jordan want to go back home. is that a three-prong approach? >> the paper coalition has to be reinforced. the provision of appropriate weapons to folks like the kurds has to be ca can -- to be accelerated and we need to get the saudis to accept some of the refugees at least on a temporary basis so we can get them to the point where they can be safe. bill: there is no pro sure to make it happen. >> nothing will happen without u.s. leadership. this president who failed to do
what all of s. president has failed to do. this no u.s. leadership because the president of the united states doesn't know what he's doing and is not a lead i are. -- is not a leader. heather: news just coming in from paris. russian path vladimir putin the and president obama talk on the side lines. bill: you are about to see an amazing rescue. a woman pulled from an icy river after she jumped in to save her dogs. >> there was and the lot she could have done to help herself.
water is freezing and she had nothing to grab on to. ensure's complete balanced nutrition has 26 vitamins and minerals and 9 grams of protein. ensure. take life in. one of the country's biggesties financial services firms? or 13,000 financial advisors who say thank you? it's why edward jones is the big company that doesn't act that way.
bill: a woman and her two dogs lucky to be alive after a scare in the icy water. see you can't stand. thank you so much. bill: dramatic event caught on camera. a woman walk her dogs near a reservoir when one ran out on to thin ice. she followed the dog and the eyes a gave way. >> officer nelson did a fabulous job. it's nothing short of a miracle. i'm super honored to have been able to witness that.
bill: it happened in utah and she has since been reunited with her dog. heather: in baltimore the trial of the first police officer in the freddie grey case. prosecutors say 25-year-old gray died from his injuries sustained while being transnorth a police van. leland what's happening there today in. reporter: jury selection today. we saw officer william porter heading into the courthouse. he used to come into the courthouse as a police officer, as a witness. today he showed up as a defendant. today he will take the stand in his own defense. before we get to that we have to find a fair and impartial juror.
many experts say there will have to be a far greater number looked at in order to find 12 people who can look at this case on the merits. for the attorneys, the prosecutors and defense attorneys. picking a jury in a cop trial is unlike any other. >> you don't want people on your jury who would believe police officers above all else. you want them more neutral. there will and lot of police officers who will testify for the state, but there will also be a lot of police officers testifying for the defense. reporter: one of the more interesting points we heard is the jury will take a field trip down into a back garage and actually look at the police van freddie gray was being
transported in when he sustained those injuries that would later kill him. heather: why is this case more significant? reporter: you have six officers charged in freddie gray's death. this is the first trial so it sets the tone legally because prosecutors hope to have officer porter testify against his comrades. whether he has to be offered immunity or he gets leniency all hinges on how this goes in the next couple of weeks. his trial greaty impacts the next set of five officers' trials. we are expected to hear character witnesses. the judge ruled the prosecutors
cannot discuss the legality of the initial arrest. you heard it was a major part of the prosecutor's case. we'll have to see how sit plays into that. >> a state of emergency after an ice storm batters the central plains. heather: we'll talk about this. a debate over government surveillance. is the expiration of the ns tax phone data program putting us at risk? a big reaction from judge napolitano next. reporter: the united states made a mistake when they limb nairtd this program. he's always hanging out with his friends. you've got to be prepared to sit at the edge of your seat and be ready to get up. there's no "deep couch sitting."
in paris president obama and russian president vladimir putin meeting on the sidelines. the two leaders talking about other things including the situation in syria. white house officials say president obama told putin syria's assad must leave as part of a political transition. russia of course fully supports al-assad. the turkish president put a letter out over the weekend but in paris he said turkey will not apologize for the actions. heather: the national security agency no longer has authority
to collect phone data in bulk. now a top senate lawmaker says abandoning that program is a mistake. judge andrew napolitano is here. >> what we saw in paris once we got a cell phone was that we used that cell phone number to look at cell phones it had talked to, and not only paris investigators but belgium investigators were able to expand the surf in a way that stopped an additional attack in paris and potentially led to the apprehension of a dozen if not more isis operatives in belgium, germany and parts of europe. heather: they were able to get information so quickly.
is this putting americans at risk? >> senator burr is mixing apples and oranges. when he talks about the cell phone he's talking about the cell phone one of these monsters left at the scene. that's hard core evidence. it's easy for a judge to say you have the cell phone so go inside it which means go to the phone company and get record of every person that called and every call that was made from. that's what investigators will use to stop a future attack. that's not what the nsa does. what the nsa done as what some have said it can no longer do is incorrect is gather phone calls, transcripts of phone calls and emails in real-time. can it do so today? yes.
tonight patriot act, the section of the patriot act that authorized that expires. heather: now they can go to the individual telephone companies. >> correct. they also have authority issued by president bush that is still valid. the president is the commander-in-chief and he told them, president bush, to intercept all phone calls as need and president obama has not tint geared that executive order. heather: you listen to people at the nsa, necessity say it's a scare tactic. that the nsa can't randomly listen to everyone's phone conversations.
that it has to be linked to a foreign number. >> yes and no. but the fisa cord court has aloud them to connect it to the 6th degree. so the way the fisa court interpreted this, a talks to b and c and d and e and f, and everybody f talked to is encompassed in this warrant. in the opinion of the critics of the nsa it's too much information. heather: our brain room did some numbers for us.
the number of presumed persons the subject of these bulk inquiries was 248 in 2014. >> i don't know the origin of those record because their record are secret. one of the warrants that i saw which is on the internet, released by edward snowden, authorized the nsa to capture the phone calls of he customer of verizon. that's 150 million telephone numbers. heather: have we given the terrorists information so they can go now and plan their attacks? when you are talking about isis, they are using the internet, they are using cell phones. that's how they are organizing things. >> they are probably not using cell phones because the french
have the ability to listen to any phone call and read any email without a warrant. they weren't able to stop these guys. >> look how quickly they resolved the fir one. >> they got the phone, the hard evidence. it didn't involve any you are virallans. just old-fashioned police work. >> tom brady and company battling out in a snow globe. both teams no stranger to the cold. patriots fans holding their breath as tight end was carted off the field with a knee injury.
back to the action. the patriots could not save the game. they closed it up in the closing minutes. peyton manning who his out, they were playing with one of the league's top defenses. there is one team that is still perfect. heather: the carolina panthers, they are going all the way. they deserve it. bill: hope field over here. they are a great team. awesome. donald trump defiant, refusing to back down from his claims he saw muslims dancing in the streets after the 9/11 terror attacks. bill: the ceo of planned
parenthood says that recent rhetoric may have made the organization a target in her state. why self candidate say that claim is outrageous. >> there is no rationalizing. it was mass murder. and there is no excuse for killing other people. and 2% back at the grocery store, even before they got 3% back on gas, all with no hoops to jump through, daniel, vandi, and sarah decided to use their bank americard cash rewards credit card to sweeten the holiday season. that's the spirit of rewarding connections. apply online or at a bank of america near you.
around the work that planned parenthood does, i can't believe this isn't contributing to some folk mentally unwell or not, thinking it's okay to target planned parenthood or target abortion providers. bill: that's the head of planned parenthood in colorado saying word may have motivated the suspected killer. reportedly mentioning body parts during the attack in colorado. ladies, good morning. we heard a lot through the weekend. where are you on this? >> i think it's important to first clear up that undercover videos exposing them for unethical and inhumane behavior
is not equivalent of calling for murder. the head of the planned parenthood in colorado was refer together calls the past couple months and from pro-life groups around the country. but that does not equate calling for murder. the guy who will be in court today, we'll hear more about his motives in that hearing. he's a loner. he has a history of mental instability. bill: he was nuts. look at the trailer where he lived. >> the fact that we are trying to connect the pro-life movement to rhetoric because of one man who is unstable and committed purchased is a asinine.
>> republicans with demon eyed plan the parenthood for months. they are about to launch their fifth investigation into it. republicans fight tooth and nail to protect everybody's right including a crazy person to get a gun, but they do nothing to protect a woman's right to healthcare. the first thing they can do is to deny people who are unstable like this man the right to get a gun. bill: some of the reaction now, as you know, it's big on the trail today. >> i think that's a little bit disingenuous on the part of planned parenthood to blame
those who have a philosophical disagreement with setting of baby parts to say we would like to retaliate by sending a madman into a clinic to kill people. >> what i would say to anyone who tries to link this terrible tragedy to anyone who opposes the sale of body parts, this is typical left-wing tactics. >> planned parenthood is using this situation to shut up critics on abortion. they are saying if you criticize planned parenthood you are the equivalent of someone wanting 20 come into a -- want to go come into a clinic and kill someone using their services. colorado has universal background checks the president is calling for. colorado passed the gun control laws two years ago.
it's a man who is unable and going into the clinic and killing people. the ceo nationally of planned parenthood said they would stop the prang is of engaging in unethical activity. bill: typical left-wing tactics. respond to that. >> facts are suborn things. no one can stop anyone from saying anything. we do have the freedom of speech. but we have the opportunity to stop mentally unstable people from having a gun. we hear every couple weeks talking about the one crazy person with a gun who shot up a church of people in a prayer group. who shot up a movie theater. woo if we had -- you won't even
take guns away from terrorists on a watchlist. crazy people can buy a gun. now we have a plan the parenthood clinic. a police officer was killed, a mother was killed and an iraq veteran was killed. that's wrong. bill: the fiery energy, thank you marianne and thank you, katie. heather: we'll show you the new technology unveiled by amazon. get your order delivered by drone. heat will be adele smashing records. i've smoked a lot and quit a lot, but ended up nowhere. now i use this. the nicoderm cq patch,
[♪] bill: that's adele. nielsen announced her latest album sold 3.3 million copies in a week. that's the biggest first week by any artist since nielsen started keeping track of the tally in 1991. heather: some controversy. there is some controversy. because she is beating out taylor swift. bill: that's controversy? maybe it's talent.
heather: amazon unveiling its latest prime air drone, giving us a glimpse of the way our packages could be delivered in the not so distant future. joe, tell us about the new drone. reporter: it used to be only people pack packages. now we have robots packing packages. next up is the new amazon prototype video released last night. it can take off vertically. 5 pounds or less and land it in your backyard. it hasn't been approved by the faa. they have the permits to test it
but not the permit to use it just yet. amazon doing very well this cyber monday, expecting $43 million worth of stuff to be sold. google is getting into the drone game. but amazon says they are trying to get out front and bring something, anything by a drone to your doorstep. bill: taking a tour from the campaign trail. ben carson went to the refugee camps in jordan. will it help his campaign? heather: things getting heated up between donald trump if.
>> this didn't happen in new jersey. >> it did happen in new jersey. i have hundreds of people that agree with me. . (0209fox555a.ecl) mistaking me for santa. i'm so sorry. come on sweetie. it's okay. and knowing right when my packages arrive. introducing real-time delivery notifications. one more reason this is our season.
bill: morning, everybody. donald trump not backing away or backing down. insisting he saw thousands of muslims in new jersey cheering the terror attacks on september 11. it has been an issue. good morning. hope you had a great weekend. 10:00 here in new york. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to "america's newsroom." heather: nice to be with you and everybody at home. i'm heather childers in for martha maccallum. trump is says he is 100% right. telling chuck todd on "meet the press" that hundreds of people back him up. >> i saw it at the time. i stick by it. hundreds of people have confirmed it. >> this didn't happen in new jersey. there were present plenty of reports. and -- >> it did happen in new jersey.
chuck, it did happen in new jersey. hundreds of people agree with me. >> they want to agree with you, doesn't make it true. you're running for president of the united states, your words matter. >> this is people -- >> words matter. fact-based matters, no. >> take it easy, chuck. play it cool. i have a very good memory, chuck. i have a very good memory. i saw it on television many years ago and i never forgot it. heather: peter doocy in washington. peter, more news for trump today. he just cancel ad news conference. what happened with that? reporter: because there won't be an endorsement but sit-down in trump's skyscraper is on schedule with several dozen african-american pastors. trump tweeted last night he will be meeting on monday in trump tower with a large group of african-american pastors, many i know, wonderful people, not a press event. that tweet cleared up confusion that one of the pastors organized meeting take blame for calling it all a miscommunication apparently not
all nearly 100 black pastors he lined up to meet trump midtown today had signed off on backing trump for president. the press conference part has been canceled but the large meter is still on. after it wraps up, mr. trump is off to georgia what he promises will be another large rally. heather. heather: ben carson, he has been doing some traveling. what about his trip to jordan, how has that been? reporter: health they are, carson is doing what he said he would do, beefing up his foreign policy chops, rivals say he lack, going oversears and diagnosing what is going on and what is the best way to fix major problems. carson toured a refugee camp in jordan filled with syrians that fled isis. he said any plan to help those refugees should try to put them back in places they're most familiar with. >> we're hearing that they all want to come here to the united states and that is not what they want. they want to go back home. reporter: this weekend carson
also accused president obama of allowing america's enemies to get stronger and more dangerous by micromanaging military advisors and just ignoring their advice about what is really going on overseas. heather? heather: peter doocey, live for us. thank you, peter. bill: ben carson back in the states this morning. brit hume is our senior political analyst. good day to i on this monday morning. i hope you had a good holiday. i guess everybody does, eventually they go overseas. >> high time i suppose in his case. bill: perhaps. does a trip like this, and you think about where he went to, this is not just a trip to israel which many make or to visit london or paris. he went to the refugee camps of jordan. does a trip like this help his campaign? >> well i think it certainly can't hurt his campaign because he is seen lacking as you just heard in foreign policy experience and knowledge and i think it also may help him that the rim did i he described after visiting these refugee areas was
not to bring these, any of these syrian refugees here but rather to have them looked after in places they're more familiar with. indeed he said some of the refugee cams which he described as pretty nice places are not even full. his idea is let's raise money to help them and let governments hosting them help them and not bring them here. that is pretty much comports with what a majority of republican primary voters seem to think. it may help him in that regard. bill: back to the point he made there, his campaign will say that foreign policy's a weak spot and if you're going so shore up the arguments on that you better get some, perhaps more knowledge. now what carson said at the beginning of his campaign is that the reason why he could be president is because he continues to learn on any topic at anytime. i guess now in the coming days and weeks we'll see whether or
not that lesson can be applied to his race. >> well that's right, bill, and of course, the thing that carson has to watch out for is a issue arises, a question is asked in a debate and areas where he hasn't been briefed or hasn't familiarized himself with and gets caught out. that wouldn't be that great of a problem with somebody long in experience with foreign policy where people are relatively sure that he or she knows the ropes. in carson's case of course he is new to all of this, foreign and domestic policy alike, and governing experience as well. so that he is more vulnerable on that count than he might otherwise would be. he has to make sure he is well-briefed and up to speed on a great many things, not easy to do. bill: indeed. brit, i have to interrupt one moment here. hang with us. this is tape playout, president obama meeting with the indian prime minister. a quick drop in here. let's listen. >> -- on issue of climate change.
we agree it is an urgent threat. the prime minister has shown in work even before he was prime minister at the state level his interest in new technologies and clean energy. we welcome indias leadership and mr. modi's leadership on this issue and chance to put in place a lasting framework that addresses climate at an international level. i want to emphasize that we agree that paris must recognize and protect the ability of countries like india to pursue the priorities of development, and poverty eradication. i know that is something that deeply felt by prime minister modi. at the same time, it also reflects serious and ambitious action by all nations to curb their carbon pollution. so our teams are working together to achieve these objectives, and i am proud that after our meeting here we're going to be attending what we're
calling mission innovation, which is groundbreaking new public/private initiative that will accelerate the pace at which we can develop and deploy clean energy that is affordable to populations around the world. and, india develop ad new solar alliance which is going to be helping to advance the cause not only in india but around the world accelerating adaptation of solar energy which will be so important to our clean energy future. mr. prime minister, wonderful to see you again, thank you for your leadership. bill: just want to bring you that from paris here. want to bring brit hume back on this. i want you to react what we're watching. >> you notice that the president spoke of their climate change summit there, as quote paris. i think however, bill, the political problem for him there when most people hear the word paris these days, they don't think of climate summit or global warming rest of it, they think of the terrorist attack
which so alarmed people all over the world, especially in the west. of course the president continued to describe climate change as the principle threat to national security and he is also said, you know, that this climate change summit is a rebuke to the terrorists. kind of think -- bill: brit, he is not alone. >> a lot of people would look at that and say, i don't think so. bill: the french president who has been a hawk on isis last two weeks he said same thing. i can't separate the fight against terrorism from the fight on global warming. they are in lockstep. >> perhaps, but note as well what the president said about india's responsibilities he kind of glossed over it, we have to make room for countries like india to continue to advance their economic priorities. what that means is that they should not be called upon to do as much in terms of carbon emissions as countries like the united states who's economies are more advanced. that's problem.
and ordinary people look at the world, wait a minute, in china and india and countries like that are still polluting like mad, why should our economy suffer to make room for them? so that highlights i think another of the political obstacles to really doing much of anything about climate change, apart from the fact a lot of people don't think it is that big of a deal anyway. bill: brit, thanks. >> you bet. bill: working on it 25 plus years. we'll see where they get. brit hume in washington, d.c. we'll see you later with bret. brit,. heather: on the terror hunt in paris, they believe the prime suspect traveled to belgium. neither of the men have been seen in a week. greg palkot what is the latest for us? what is going on with the manhunt, greg? reporter: heather, that's right, a major conference going on here right now about climate but the background, the important and urgent subtopic is terror and that is because two weeks ago
terrorism hit here will killing 130 people and the hunt for those involved in those attacks unbelievably still goes on. the two main suspects are still outstanding, who are still alive. so-calledth attacker -- 8th attacker, salah abdeslam and his driver. there is speculation that abdeslam made it back to his isis lair in syria. he hasn't been found in belgium. he hasn't been found in germany. he is not turning up. we spoke to the paris prosecutors office. they are directly involved in the investigation. so far they told us they do not a firm fix on hills whereabouts but the continues. we got details what he was doing prior to the attacks. over the weekened it emerged that he bought detonators for those suicide explosive vests used in the attacks at a, get this, fireworks store outside of paris, just a couple weeks before the attacks. he asked the man at that store,
are these reliable? nevertheless, detonators now banned for sale in this area. another report about the mastermind of the attack, abdelhamid abaaoud. it looks reliable he was in france and belgium two months leading up to the attacks. authorities were telling us at time of attacks and day after that he was nowhere near here. that he was back in syria and only admitted he was here in paris when he was found in that saint-denis apartment building outside of paris after that raid, explosive raid just couple days after the attacks. one final note, heather, it was announced yesterday 1000 people have been turned away from the borders of france in the two weeks since the attacks and in the run-up to this conference for security reasons. good for the conference here, keeping this safe although as
you can see, not always safe. maybe bad for those who lost their lives injured in the terror attacks weeks ago. back to you. heather: greg palkot live from paris, thank you. bill: russia said to be stepping up the airstrikes in syria in the wake of a russian fighter jet shot down in neighboring turkey. we'll tell you what is happening there. heather: new reports that isis is recruiting syrian refugees bound for major countries like germany. what this threat could mean for the u.s. bill: trial of a police officer charged in the death of freddie gray. city of baltimore braces for a trial that could be as divisive as the tragedy itself. ...and a free wellness visit. new plan...same doctor. i'm happy. it's medicare open enrollment. have you compared plans yet? it's easy at medicare.gov. or you can call 1-800-medicare. medicare open enrollment. you'll never know unless you go.
bill: getting word of at least 30 killed in an alleged russian airstrike in syria. tungurahura -- bill: russian jets hit an area in the northwestern part of the country. airstrikes have intentionfied since russian fighter jet was shot down earlier this month. heather: isis reportedly developing a new recruitment strategy. instead of trying to sneak terrorists into europe with a stream of refugees, they warn that extremists are reaching out
to the refugees, trying to recruit them as soon as they arrive. lieutenant colonel ralph peters, strategic analyst. thanks for joining us. >> hi, heather. heather: this isn't entirely new. we knew that isis said they will infiltrate the refugees. >> well, of course they will and they're saying that for a couple reasons. one, because it's true and also because they want to disrupt the reception of refugees. it is very complex problem. there is lot of debate, but also here, whether refugees themselves will be terrorists. whether they will be infiltrators, whether isis and others are concentrating on homegrown lone wolf terrorists. the answer is all of the above. the terrorists have a comprehensive approach, islamist terrorists. they will even poach from each other from one organization to another. they will take suicide bombers, attackers, wherever they can find them and it is unquestionable that at least some of the refugees or
so-called refugees coming into the germany, young islamic males, young muslim males, some are certainly already islamist state sympathizers. others when they find that germany isn't the utopia they thought it was going to be will be susceptible to recruitment. europe with good intentions, nonetheless importing a problem that is going to get worse and worse and worse. sort of slow motion cultural suicide. heather: we're separated by an ocean but what about here in the united states? what is the threat here from the refugees and what should we do? >> well, from real refugees there is no threat but the problem is, because of political correctness we won't sort out who are the real refugees. the real refugees are obvious, christians driven out of their homes, tortured, raped, kidnapped, killed, whose civilization has been destroyed while we watched. they're real refugees.
yazidi refugees are real refugees. young muslim males are not real refugees. they won't fight for their own country and want an economic future anywhere. all the stuff, we would be bigots if we took christians and other minorities, they are the refugees. so it is so politicized at this point we can't do what's right. heather: colonel peters, let's talk a little more about the things that have been politicized, in terms of taking care of isis in syria and iraq and libya alone. at least two senators, mccain, and an lindsey graham are calling for more troops, 20,000 more troops. let's listen to lindsey graham. >> we don't have enough forces on the ground to deal with mosul. mosul is a very large city in the hands of isil but you can't fix iraq without dealing with syria. there is no credible ground component in syria. so if you don't get syria right, you're not going to fix iraq, now libya. heather: and you say we may need upwards of 50,000 troops there?
>> well, my point is that you don't know in advance how many troops you need. it is a best guess thing but don't focus on the troop numbers. that is the wrong way to do it. focus on the mission and the subobjectives that get you to accomplishing the mission. you have got to ask yourself, what do we really need to accomplish, need to accomplish? what are the and third order effects. senators graham and mccain who i admire are falling into the trap obama fell into putting troop ceiling and troop limits out there. if we really take on the islamic state seriously the numbers required of troops will go up and down depending on specific operation. the trish is use what is necessary at time, not stay, not get bogged down and hit them and leave smoking ruins behind. heather: all right. >> i'm really afraid, heather, senator graham and senator mccain are too close to the problem.
they can't see that iraq and syria as we knew them no longer exist. heather: colonel peters, thank you so much for your insight. we appreciate it. thank you. >> thank you. bill: 20 minutes past the hour. here is story you will wake up to today, basketball kobe bryant making a huge announcement about his future, doing it in the form of a poem. heather: pretty good poem. bill: you reckon? heather: any state gone wild, a push to have heavy tax on soda is now going nationwide. ♪

ban in place, prices of soda gone up as tax goes up. costs more. but consumption has not gone down. it's a sin tax. they say too early to tell. haven't had enough results but purpose of sin tax is to discourage behavior. they're trying to tax sugary sodas so you won't buy anymore. bill: who would be impacted the most? who would pay? >> all of these sort of consumption taxes are very regressive, which means it hurts poor people the most. it is the same price on every ounce of soda, penny an ounce is lot more meaningful to someone who doesn't have a lot of money than someone who is wealthy. in lower income neighborhoods and households they consume more sugary beverages this definitely hurts low income people more. that is why it is made for some strange bedfellows. bill: like whom? who is getting together on this? >> the beverage industry teamed up with the naacp to fight it here in new york. that is not groups that you would think would fight together. but they realized who this would really tax.
it is one of those things that we see again and again. it just doesn't seem to have the results that they're after. my kids, for example, have never tried soda because they think it looks weird. i have done nothing to discourage them. bill: it looks weird? >> it is brown and fuzzy, why would i try that. i don't drink it in front of them and i don't do anything to encourage them to try it. i don't think is tax is way to go. like -- bill: there is effort against salt. >> yes. there is new one coming in, in fact coming to new york i think tomorrow. they're trying, putting a in place new guidelines on sodium. but as usual the fed are coming out with their own a year from now. they will have to redo ones in new york. not everyone on same page. it costs a lot of money but with no results. bill: success in berkeley so far. >> they are raising money. haven't discouraged consumption. depends on how you define

"mediabuzz." saturday night, sarasota. there is what trump said. he doesn't make fun of anybody. watch. >> all of sudden i found i was mocking somebody. the person has a disability. and the person said, i know him. i know him. but you know, and i said when? in the 1980s. the 1980s. i don't mock people. i don't mock people that have problems. i don't mock people that have problems, believe me. bill: you've got that story that is linked to the muslims on september 11th and this story goes on on and on and on. today, howard, where is this story now? >> well trump is on the defensive. only reason i'm inclined to take him at his word he wasn't openly mocking the serge kovalasky who interviewed him, a limited disability, limited use of his arms is donald trump is not dumb. if he was doing that, he would get called on it.
this is classic trump, bill. we have trump going a bit too far with his rhetoric. talks about celebrating muslims on 9/11 in new jersey. nobody has been able to find the tape. he gets whacked by the press. he hits back at press, demands apology. which keeps it going. which makes us in the news business say, boy he has got problems but his fans, his supporters, people who love him, they don't trust the media, when he comes under fire like this, there is boomerang effect and helps him. bill: chuck todd got into it with him on sunday. your point is well-taken. he is being bad into the corner and fights his way out time and begin. is there any lien to think he won't this time? >> i don't see any reason. in that confrontation between chuck todd of "meet the press" and donald trump, you could see the frustration, it was kind of symbolic media people feel like we keep pointing things out that we think are inaccurate that donald trump says and yet we can't pin him down, he doesn't seem to suffer any price for it.
at the same time, it seems to me that trump, uses his media mastery to keep these things alive because it helps him. here we are, seven, eight, nine days after he first made the claim about muslims in new jersey, we're still talking about him. we're still talking about his campaign and he for still five months now leading in the polls. bill: the other point on that, is that the other candidates are constantly asked about trump, as was the case on abc with john kasich. watch. >> you said he won't get the nomination, what if he does will you -- >> he is not going to. so we're not even going to go there. but i tell you this -- >> you would support him, governor kasich if he is the republican nominee, after what you just said about him. >> he think he is very divisive. i do not believe he will last, martha. it will not happen, martha. everybody needs to get over it and take a deep breath. bill: howard, as a media reporter, when you see this line of questioning over and over and over again, what does it do to
the story, what does it do to his campaign? >> well it puts every other republican on defense system i asked some of these presidential candidates, chris christie, about donald trump how he seems to dominate this campaign. they're all in a box because they have all pledged to support the haven't all republican nominee. some can only get oxygen by criticizing donald trump or deflecting questions about donald trump which means you and i much of the media are still talking about donald trump. in addition, "new york times" editorial page accusing trump of racist lies and that he is a bully and running ugly campaign this is badge of honor for trump. puts other candidates trying to get into more competitive position in the early states in a box. they don't want to just talk about trump but seems only way they can grab a headline. bill: they have to answer it and move on a. howie, thank you for your time. whole new week. good to have you, howard, thanks. heather: court hearing for the white colorado police officer
charged with murder after dash-cam video caught him fatally shooting a black teenager 16 times. today's hearing comes after days of protests over the killing of 17 laquan mcdonald. mat finn live for us in chicago at the cook county courthouse. matt, what do we expect to happen today? reporter: heather, today the 14 year police veteran, jason van dyke will be in court second time after first turning himself in last week. the judge will decide if he can be released on bail. what is interesting here, the judge is factoring in the shocking dash-cam video shows van dyke shooting 17-year-old laquan mcdonald 16 times last year. that was not available when van dyke was first charged with murder. van dyke maintains his client is innocent. fraternal order of police organize ad bail fund for van dyke. considering he is charged on first-degree murder, that bail figure if set could be very high, heather. heather: matt, there have been a
lot of protests in chicago last week. are you seeing any there today? reporter: heather, no protesters in sight so far although it is fairly early and cold. there is heightened sense of security. there are signs in the courthouse saying every bag will be checked and there are squad cars all over. heather? heather: matt finn live in chicago. thank you. bill: the city of baltimore is on edge as the trial gets underway for the first of six officers indicted in the death of freddie gray. can the police officers get a fair trial? fair and balanced debate on that in a moment. heather: plus, emergency crews attempt to save a would-be criminal after burglary attempt goes horribly long. >> i have been a deputy for almost 11 years now, and i have never seen anything like this. i read about it but personally never seen anything like this.
that is when he heard someone screaming. he immediately put the fire out, called 911. by the crime crews -- time crews arrived it was too late for the suspected burglar. >> it is generally quiet out here but we do see spikes in crime from time to time. nothing like this. bill: an autopsy showed a 19-year-old suspect died of smoke inhalation and burns. heather: baltimore on edge as the first trial begins today for one of the police officers charged for the death of freddie gray. [shouting] the death sparked several days of rioting in the streets. the 25-year-old black man died from injuries suffered while in police custody back in april. six officers face charges. deneen borelli, chief political correspondent for conservative review and fox news contributor. and basil smikel, jr., is the
president and founder of basil smikel associates, adjunct professor of columbia university and executive director of the new york state democratic party. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. heather: there are six officers who are charged. each will be tried separately. the first officer up is william porter. he bases charges of -- faces charges of assault, manslaughter, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office. i wanted to quote what the police chief said in terms of what happens with this, these cases. he says, that, ken davis is the police commissioner. he said everything is at stake. the future of the city is at stake. basil, i will start with you. what is at stake? >> well, there are political and community ramifications. we've seen the mayor of baltimore, who says she is not running for reelection. young but very talented prosecutor who all eyes are really on her. ultimately it's the fabric of the community that is at stake.
history has shown that it's the families of these victims, mostly african-american males will be left wanting for justice when at the end, at end of these trials. i think that's what the community is going to have to deal with, should, no jail time come out of this trial or any of the subsequent ones. heather: deneen? >> i think the city of baltimore is in no-win situation. when you look at the skyrocketing murder rates, the city is still reeling and trying to recover from the millions of dollars in damages from arson and from, you know the larceny and looting that took place but the question is, will these police officers get a fair trial? we are a country of laws. and there was a study that was conducted by baltimore citizens that they are highly against police officers. they don't trust them. they're highly against them. so, will this police officer, and other five be able to get a fair trial? officer porter, as you
mentioned, his lawyers tried to move the days and their request was denied jihad up until today to choose to not go before a jury but he obviously decided to still do that. did that surprise you? >> no. no, not necessarily. i think legal strategy is perhaps, they feel they can get justice better that way. so i don't know, i'm not an attorney so i can't necessarily question legal strategy but to deneen's point there is -- communities want to support police officers. something happens they're the first person to call but there is breakdown in trust, and has history has shown, when officers are involved in these incidents very few get indicted, of those indicted few get convicted and serve real time. heather: will police officers based on what happens, still want to go out there to put their lives on the line to do their jobs? >> i understand morale is low but there has to be real conversation how we move forward. look at shaun bell.
laquan mcdonald, omar grant, these are names in individuals in communities of color where their families not getting justice they want. somehow, some way folks have to come together. we've seen change in tactics but is it going to be enough. heather: you mentioned homicide rate, up 75% since same time last year. >> no, it is outrage just. this is not just happening in baltimore but a lot of your ban communities. i think this gross back to the failure of progressive policy, these individuals would not be committing these crimes which makes more face time in front of police officers they would not be committing these crimes if they had quality education, ifer this working, if they had opportunities there. are no incentives in niece neighborhoods. that is deplorable. >> i don't think that are result of progressive policies. you look at ferguson, excessive warrants, look at rockefeller drug laws that created sort of mass incarceration that we are now trying to roll back, those are all conservative republican
policies that i think progressives are trying to roll back, and some republicans to be fair. even republicans like rand paul are working across the aisle to roll back some of these policies. >> statistics, black americans make up 13% of the population. 52% of the black americans are committing these homicides and this is disproportionately young black males. there are no incentives, no opportunities for these individuals getting themselves in trouble. >> but whose fault is that. >> baltimore has been run by democrat politicians for many, many years. lack of jobs. high taxes, high regulations. the opportunities are not there. they're being -- heather: let me ask you though, if we get back on target with this particular case and these trials which are expected as we said to go through the spring, the judge has done a lot of things where you can tell is trying to stop things before they happen so to speak. one of those for a gag order on both of the attorneys. you mentioned prosecutor. there were allegations she had
come out and she would be biased. they thought she issued be removed from the case. do you think shy has said too much? >> i don't know if she said too much. in her role, she represents the state and state is bringing these charges and presumably on behalf of the community and families that have been traumatized by. so i think it is within her right to sort of be a little more public about, about the trial and her intention but, you know, i understand from the judge's point of view why they might want to do the gag order. heather: finally. >> referring to mosby, right? she was out for justice for all young people and justice for freddie. she was very biased from the beginning. she should be gagged. heather: thank you both for joining us. bill? bill: we want to share this with our viewers. we knew this happened two hours ago. we have a picture. president obama and president putin meeting on the side apparently at the climate change summit in paris, france.
