"fox and friends" starts right now. good morning, it is tuesday, december 15th. imt heather childers in for elisabeth hasselbeck. the feds did not look at the extreme social media posting of the terrorists bfr letting her into the u.s. have you heardis? apparently the reason. because they didn't want to offend anyone. the shocking policy claims ahead. the stage is set in sin city las vegas as republicans prepare to face off in their final debate of this calendar year. donald trump jumps to his largest lead yet in the polls. >> the other candidates should be thankful because i'm giving them a chance to make total
3:01 am
fools of themselves. >> and he's just getting started. more from the donald and the polls straight ahead. pregame rally. first the pledge was dropped, then one school tried to give santa the boot. that's when this mom brought her fight to "fox and friends." >> i hope we will bring santa back. it gives our kids a big imagination to believe. >> is that too much to ask? this morning a big victory for that mom in brooklyn. and common sense. because let me just remind you, mornings are better with friends. hi everybody. live from studio e here in the heart of midtown manhattan. "fox and friends." heather childers is joining us. >> you've been warming up for an hour. >> you're ready to go. >> ready to go. >> all about the news.
3:02 am
>> we'll start with something you probably saw yesterday. the president of the united states went over to the pentagon for a 90-minute briefing to find out what's going on with isis. he came out and looked to according to "time" magazine, he couldn't get behind the podium fast enough. he was trying to runoff. he had a few words to say, about seven minutes. essentially said we're in the right direction even though isis is making gains around the world. hit us in california. >> oh, yeah, i had 9,000 air strikes, we dropped a bunch of bombs. november was the all-time high. if you factor in the fact that we should have been doing this as a brisker pace for the last year and a half, if you want to factor in the fact every day they stay in business, they get a million dollars or more to bring into that organization, if you factor in a russian airliner blown up and the stabbings that were taking place in england, you see that isis is spreading. they're not going anywhere.
3:03 am
and the fact that they haven't gotten any ground does not release the fact that 70% of syria now belongs to isis in the area. >> 56% of americans say that they don't believe that the military is doing enough in the fight against isis. i think that definitely has something to do with why the president is speaking out as frequently as he seems to be. >> people are afraid. especially since they hit it in san bernardino. >> when you look at the woman, tashfeen malik, screen right, right there. she wound up getting a green card. as it turns out, she went through the vetting process three different times and yet they did not catch the fact that she had posted all sorts of crazy jihad stuff on her facebook page. why? well, according to the daily caller, they found out that apparently the department of homeland security may monitor americans' social media accounts to make sure nobody is
3:04 am
bad-mouthing the department of homeland security. you and i, they might be looking at. but immigrants on visa applications, they're not looking, because they don't want to be accused of trampling on their rights. all they need is a google to figure out she was a jihadi. they didn't do it because they, the department of homeland security didn't want to hurt anybody's feelings. i got news for you. 14 people are dead out in the west coast because nobody looked into her social media. >> in 2012, she posted her feelings for isis and al qaeda. in 2014 she did it again. next thing you know she's killing people in the inland empire with her pseudofictional husband. here's the i had i don't si of this job. >> if you flip burgers, let alone doing something sensitive, what is the hr department going to do? they're going to look at your
3:05 am
social media posting. are you a normal person? are you crazy? do you post up anti-social? why do we have these huge conspiracies, huge things about nsa method data collection if the immigration services can't look at your facebook page? >> okay. so they could not look at immigrants, but they can look at any social media criticism here i inside the united states. which when you think about it, it sounds like they're trying to crackdown on our first amendment rights. >> there's a similar situation with the boston bombers as well. they had posted some things on social media here in the united states. i don't know if it's just what you're posting on social media or perhaps what your background is that makes them more inclined to look at some and not others. they're concerned about being labeled someone that's looking at someone's based on their background. >> they were here in the united states. >> right. >> posting stuff.
3:06 am
i'm sure it popped up on somebody's screen. for her to go through the screening process three times, for them to miss it, there's a lot of egg on someone's face. >> they loved steve emojis. >> they did that here. >> lol. >> you must have engineers working full-time. i'm sure it doesn't stop here. some people say we have to find out what is going on. speaking of that person, the fifth debate and the last one of this year will take place tonight. when donald trump takes center stage, he's going to have the wind at his back and a bounce in his step because this "washington post" poll will back up what he's said all along, that he's going to win the nomination. >> this came out this morning. you're seeing it first here. donald trump, look at this is leading the pack with 38%. he more than doubled ted cruz, ben carson continues to tumble. marco rubio at 12. jeb bush squeaking along at 5 and then chris christie, john
3:07 am
kasich and everybody else is 1, 2 or 0% right there. meanwhile, this pretty much backs up a poll from monmouth university that came out yesterday. who would you support for president? look at this. donald trump at 41% followed by ted cruz, march quo rubio, pretty much the same thing. both polls came out after donald trump made hi comments about temporarily barring muslims from coming into the country. the conventional wisdom with the pundit class, this is going to destroy him. you know what, his numbers actually went up. we have a preview of what's in store. he was in vegas last night. listen to this. >> the other candidates should be thankful because i'm giving them a chance to make total fools of themselves in front of millions of people. but no, honestly, i'm doing a good job for the republican party. people are able to get their votes out. i think tomorrow night, i think
3:08 am
it's going to be big. and they're all coming after me. i heard today, i'm watching, saying man this is like crazy. who is going to attack trump first? will it be this one? you know, he's taken down seven so far. you know, if you look, so far everyone that's attacked me has gone down the tubes. >> the only thing different now is -- listening to marco and yesterday for the first time they were negative on donald trump for going after senator ted cruz saying essentially for ted cruz being ted cruz to get attacked, no one asked -- that was a bridge too far for levin and limbaugh who have an enormous a of power. >> do you think they'll go after each other in the debate tonight? >> yes. >> i don't think ted cruz was because he doesn't want to anger trump's outsider voters. i think there's a good possibility that donald trump
3:09 am
will say something like this since he's going to be in the middle and cruz next to him. i think trump is going to say i liked ted until he stabbed me in the back at that closed door meeting. a week or two ago. now i understand why every republican in washington, d.c. doesn't like him. >> maybe they'll have a flash dance danceoff to maniac. >> wouldn't that be cool. >> just be a shot of the lights. meaning you can have a body double. much like flash dance. >> no double for you. heather nauert, you're ready to give the news. >> lovely transition. good morning everyone. good morning. hope you're off to a good day. serious story to start out with. two stories this morning about isis in america. there is a former national guard soldier facing decades in prison for allegedly plotting to kill fellow soldiers here on u.s. soil. hasan edmonds is his names. he's accused of planning a tarkt a military armory in illinois
3:10 am
with assault rifles and grenades. and then in baltimore, an accused isis fighter claims he wasn't working for isis. he was trying to scam the terror group he says. he admits he was communicating with isis operatives, but only to con them out of $9,000 in a money wire. brand new drone regulations from the faa on the heels of an alarming new report about the dangers that they pose. starting next week, people will have to register their drones online for a $5 fee for drones weighing up to 55 pounds including all the attachments. they have until february 19th to register. flying a drone unregistered comes with stiff penalties. $27,000 for civil violations and $250,000 for criminal violations. that could include up to three years in jail. a new study also shows that one in every five drone incidents is a close encounter with a airplane. if you want that package to

3:12 am
at 9:00 in the morning. at 9:50 yesterday, the superintendent marched into that school, got a couple of fifth grade boys and they led a schoolwide recital of the pledge of allegiance that will be done every day going forward there. we had a woman talking about bringing back santa. he's not religious. she said this yesterday. >> i saw this letter roaming around, two of my colleagues at the school stating we're not allowed to have santa claus. i addressed her at a board meeting. why not santa claus. she said he's represented as st. nicholas who is also represented as a religious figure. i'm like, santa claus has been an americanized for so many years. we're trying to figure it out. we are in america. we're supposed to be proud of where we are. we have all these immigrants coming into our schools. we understand their beliefs, but we are in america. we need to keep the american
3:13 am
cre dream live. it's going to be back in play. >> yeah. >> gift giving and santa were old news, now they're new news. this happens more often than we know. my sister is a school teacher in atlanta. she had to remove santa from her door one year. it's based on individual principles. >> why doesn't your sister come on "fox and friends," we'll tell the story. >> after that, the principal came in after the superintendent came in, the principal sent out an e-mail and apologized for any confusion this may have caused. >> first santa, then frosty. 13 minutes now after the hour. >> the irs wants to collect your social security number if you donate to charity. could that open up the door to more targeting like the tea party scandal? stuart varney joins us next. good morning, stu. it's raining men. meet the shirtless hunk who has
3:14 am
become an overnight sensation. i have asthma... of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems.
3:15 am
breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at
3:16 am
i research. i dig. and dig some (trader more. search. because, for me, the challenge of the search... is almost as exciting as the thrill of the find. (announcer) at scottrade, we share your passion for trading. that's why we rebuilt scottrade elite from the ground up - including a proprietary momentum indicator that makes researching sectors and industries even easier. because at scottrade, our passion is to power yours.
3:17 am
welcome back to "fox and friends." a new irs proposal could have a chilling effect on charitable donations. >> it would require donors to give charities their social security numbers. but could it open up some people
3:18 am
to some type of targeting that we saw during the tea party scandal? >> let's talk to stuart varney. he's on fox business, the fastest growing network in tv during this past calendar year. congratulations. >> i believe we are. that's pretty good. let's talk about this. if i give money to my church or if i give it eye fireman's organization or anybody, they want me to give my social security number to the charity. >> yes. they want -- that's what they want you do. >> money and my number. >> you give money to the church, you write the check. under the irs rules, this is propos proposed. they want to get your social security number. they want to establish a bigger paper chain of who is giving what to whichollow the money. >> it's a little big brother-ish. the lois lerner scandal, tea party people were intimidated by the irs, targeted deliberately.
3:19 am
this is something along the same lines. it opens up the possibility of intimidation of people who have given to unpopular causes. >> why do they want do this? >> it's a paper trail. the financial police. they want to know what you're doing with your money and trace every single move you make. they're giving you more money, you get more government. more bureaucracy. think of this for a second from the charity's point of view. you give them your social security number along with your check. they've got to keep that information secure. >> sure. >> it's now up to them to spend money to secure it. >> small churches or small nonprofits have the money to secure. >> you got to have the frain structure to do it. they're saying hey, we want to make sure they're not writing down 20,000 or $25,000. we need to know they can verify this. >> i see the legitimacy, make a paper trail. if you make a deduction, the irs
3:20 am
wants to know it's you and your social security number. >> we have to sound off or suck it up? >> look, this is more government, more intrusive government. do you want that? do you want everything you ever do with every penny you ever spend to be traceable directly -- >> we want a smaller government. >> of course we do. bearing in mind, the lois lerner irs scandal, you want less government, less intimidation from the irs, not more. >> what's the likelihood that the public comment will make a difference? >> i'm sure the public comment will be anti-this rule. whether it makes a difference or not is another story entirely. >> you have a show from 9:00 to noon on the fox business network. >> three whole hours. >> he always ends with a band. i think that's a great idea. varney and company, good job. >> a band? >> he's making a joke. >> whatever you say. >> welcome to our land. >> let me tell you what's coming up. the san bernardino killer talks
3:21 am
about her love of terror online. but the feds never saw it. in fact, they never looked because they didn't want to offend anyone. the shocking secret policy we just found out about, next. padvil pm gives you the healingu at nsleep you need, it. helping you fall asleep and stay asleep so your body can heal as you rest. advil pm. for a healing night's sleep. on location with the famous, big idaho potato truck.

3:23 am
3:24 am
on this tuesday morning, we've got some international headlines for right now. here's one way to make a political statement. opposition leaders in kosovo release two tear gas canisters in parliament as they tried to pressure the government. the meeting continued in a separate room as the smoke cleared. genius. and a french preschool teacher coming clean about an isis stabbing hoax. the man first said he was attacked by a man shouting
3:25 am
support for the terror group in a suburb of paris. turns out, he made it up. it was a lie. he stabbed himself. that's some of the news. >> tashfeen malik, one of the killers in the san bernardino terror attack wrote about supporting violent jihad and praised 9/11 online for all the world to see if they were looking. but the feds weren't looking. they weren't allowed. and it was no mistake. reports show that there's a secret u.s. policy that blocks agents from looking at social media posts of these applicants. the reason, fear of bad p.r. and civil liberties backlash. how did that work out for the 14 killed and 21 wounded? joining us right now to discuss it is retired naval intelligence officer frank beau coe. this is outrageous. what's your reaction? >> i share your outrage, brian. it's ridiculous. we are essentially affording
3:26 am
nonu.s. persons in a pre immigration status the same constitutional rights as an american citizen or a legal resident. then there's the whole emotional factor here where we're actually doing it to spare people's feelings and bad pr blowback. it's unbelievable. >> bad p.r. from an applicant getting in or not getting into our country. we're worried about that. unbelievab unbelievable. 2014, homeland security jeh johnson refused to reverse this program. yesterday admiral kirby said this is should be a lessons learned thing. will they change this now, sflank. >> i really don't know, brian. this bureaucratic ball is so far afield. it's hard to say what's going on in the thousands of cases with immigration statuses around the world. the thing is, we're trying to afford these folks the courtesies and kindnesses and the good feelings, feelings of goodwill that we expect to be
3:27 am
reciprocat reciprocated. as we saw in san bernardino, these people have no intention whatsoever of reciprocating our goodwill. >> this is unbelievable that in you are due she wrote in 2012 and in 2014 her hatred to us, the praising of 9/11 and her adherence to isis or al qaeda. here in america, we're concerned about met a data collection which the president defended for acquiescing. it doesn't seem the american people, if aware, will allow this to stand. >> brian, it's just obscene. again, this is all done with the air that we're going to show these people how kind 57bd courteous and how loving and how respectful we are of their customs and privacy. the folks committed themselves to the path of jihad of isis or al qaeda have no intention of returning our kindness whatsoever. that has been paid for in blood, i'm afraid. >> with two in person
3:28 am
interviews, three background checks and she's here. frank, it leads me to this. who else is here? it's probably not just this renegade couple. there's probably somebody else whose social media would reveal their true beliefs who we have not checked. >> brian, there are literally countless cases globally. these embassies and consulates abroad are flooded with people on a daily basis who are in the same immigration status that malik was in the months before she came here. we're not going to be able to play catch-up with this. it's a mess. >> but it's got to change today. admiral kirby, you indicated it might. it has to. it's up for people to speak up. frank, thanks so much. >> thanks, brian. >> not just republicans. democrats too. straight ahead, want to be an astronaut. nasa started taking applications. he went through the training program 57bd we'll show you how he did. a guardian angel captured on

video after the car crash. do you see it? the family did. >> first happy birthday to don johnson. he's 67 today and wearing a white blazer somewhere. (politely) wait, wait, wait! you can't put it in like that, you have to rinse it first. what's that, alfredo? no,that can go in. no it can't! what are you, nuts? that's baked-on alfredo. baked-on? it's never gonna work. dish issues? trust your dishwasher with cascade platinum. it powers... through... your toughest stuck-on food. better than finish.

3:31 am
apply online or at a bank of america near you. apply online or at after a dvt blood clot.mind when i got out of the hospital what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding,
3:32 am
like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. where's your shirt, man? >> yeah -- >> it's your shot of the morning. a hunky shirtless jogger making a local weather reporter hot and heavy maybe. now taking the web by storm. >> dude, where is your shirt, man? >> yeah. it's a great day for a run. so too wet to wear a shirt you know. i love running in the rain. i'm also single. so that's --
3:33 am
>> good for you. he's ethan reno. now known as the shirtless wonder in chicago. where obviously it was chilly because look at the reporter, he's wearing a coat. >> that's what they gave him. he took advantage of his air time on the chicago's wgn to advertise that he's looking for the right match. >> who needs when you have a chest like that. >> great for cable in chicago. >> just over the air. directv. >> he's very direct. it is now 27 minutes before the top of the hour. heather has all sorts of headlines. >> how are you doing? >> call you on it. right, ladies? got headlines now. hope you're off to a good day. hundreds of women launching a class action lawsuit against a popular celebrity as seen on tv hair care product. they say it's making their hair fall out. 200 claims have been filed in 40 states so far arguing that wen hair care, shampoos and

3:46 am
are you surprised? >> yes. i'm surprised for a couple of reasons. one way to look at this, the guy knew what he was doing. >> he left a letter. >> he left a letter. he had fantasies that he was jason bourne and robert ludlum-based novel movies and five of his buddies were killed in the various efforts to bring him back. another way to look at this is, the chief investigators who investigated this case ended up testifying as witnesses for him. the jublg dge in the article 33 hearing, the equivalent of a grand jury order thad he not be tried, that he was so mentally ill and incapable of making proper decisions. so this is a head scratcher. i've never seen a case where the investigators testify for the defense. there's another very, very odd twist in here. that is, that his lawyer has been making noises in the legal community that if the case is
3:47 am
tried, big if, one of the defense witnesses will be either present or former president barack obama. oh, boy. >> which is a reason why it may never be tried while barack obama is president and he may order the mill tear toy cut a deal with this kid. >> he doesn't want that. i'm surprised it went this way. we've had a number of conversations about what should happen to him. >> right. >> there has to be consequences for what he did. >> so now instead of facing six months, which is what the judge in the article 32 hearing had ordered, which would have been set free, because he's served that much time. he's now facing two life sentences. could the government ask for death? yes. i don't think they will. because they probably would have announced that yesterday. but is there a basis for them to ask for it? yes, the basis is, as i stated earlier, innocent american troops were killed in an effort to retrieve him. >> one of the conversations that
3:48 am
we've had regarding bergdahl is even though it's the military, sometimes the pentagon is a political place. as you look at this decision, is it political? >> you know, i can't answer that. it's political from the president's perspective. one of the reasons he doesn't want it tried whether sitting or former president, it will become a judicial -- of senior taliban people for him. it's a very, very unusual case. i've never seen investigators testify for the defense and the article 32 judge's ruling rej t reject rejected. >> when is it going to happen? >> good question. >> after obama leaves office. >> i think he wants it to happen while he's still president so he can control the outcome. >> thank you very much, judge. straight ahead on this tuesday, the holiday can be especially stressful, especially on your marriage. why our next guest says brunch is the number one cause of

4:03 am
>> anna, steve, brian, good morning to you. good practice for iowa here this morning because the windchill is about 31 degrees here on the las vegas strip. you know, donald trump never does anything in a small way. we all know that. and his medical report is no different. according to his doctor, harold bornsteen, in a typical trump superlative he said if trump is elected president will will be, quote, unequivocally the healthiest individual ever elected president. donald trump said last night or yesterday rather that he benefits from having good genes, also never having smoked, never drank alcohol. also reveling in the results of that new monmouth national poll that show him with a 27-point lead over his next closest rival, 41%, compared to ted cruz, who sits now at 14%. at a big rally last night at the west lake casino here in las vegas, donald trump predicting a big victory in november if he becomes the republican nominee. >> if donald trump gets the nomination, and runs against
4:04 am
hillary clinton, it will be the wiggest election of all time in this country, and i think that's good. i think that's good. which is a good thing because a lot of people don't vote. >> but his republican competitor is predicting exactly the opposite, particularly now that the focus has moved to national security. listen to what former florida governor jeb bush told me yesterday. >> he's not electable. he's not a serious candidate, doesn't have serious views and as such would be eaten alive by hillary clinton. this guy is -- when national security becomes an issue, hillary clinton is very vulnerable and he takes away that advantage that we have. >> and the lineup is going to be a little different tonight here at the venetian hotel compared to what it was at the milwaukee fox business news debate. donald trump again will be center stage. he'll have ben carson on one side but look at this, ted cruz, who's been surging in the polls, particularly in iowa, will now be on trump's left, flanked by
4:05 am
bush and rubio and then the rest of the nine rounding out the rest of that interesting to point out, though, guys that chris christie back on the big stage again making a big push in new hampshire. he'll be trying to make some noise tonight. back to you. >> all right he's out in a chilly vegas, baby. john roberts, thank you very much. >> undoubtedly isis is going to come out tonight given the fact that there was an isis strike in san bernardino which you went out to in the aftermath, anna. and now we're learning more and more, the president went to the pentagon yesterday, he had a 90-minute briefing and essentially came out for five or six minutes and said this strategy is going to work. but as you look at what the federal government is currently do, it's a real head scratcher. how did tashfeen malik, the woman, formerly from pakistan, get into this country? because, even though she was vetted by three different parts of the federal government, she had a whole list of jihadi stuff on her facebook, and nobody looked at it.
4:06 am
>> well, first the president goes out yesterday to the pentagon with all his -- all his -- with the secretary of defense, with the vice president, with his cia director and just comes out and says, everybody, the fight against isis is going great. 9,000 airstrikes. we've had more bombings this month than ever before. he's neglecting the fact that it took him a year and a half even to bomb the oil. he's neglecting the fact that every day isis is in power they gain an enormous amount of strength. he's neglecting the fact that there was a bombing in paris, bombing in san bernardino. there was a stabbing in london. all from isis. because they have their headquarters in syria. >> well, it's great that we're hitting the tanker trucks and the oil wells and refineries. >> now. >> finally. but it does seem like the president of the united states is still trying to convince us that we are winning this global war on jihad. even though he doesn't want to call it razz cal islam or anything else. but it certainly doesn't feel like it to the american people, when you have these attacks like out in san bernardino, or the bataclan in paris. >> and then you wonder how these people got here and then you go
4:07 am
back and try to recreate the admission process, and you see this pseudo couple with their sham marriage and the fact that she got three background checks, and on her website, on her facebook page, in erdu back in 2012 praising the 9/11 attackers, and also adhering to isis and talking about isis and al qaeda which should have been a disqualifier. >> should have been. here's the thing, doesn't the department of homeland security have google? all you've got to do is look on her facebook page. they didn't do it, because this is, and it was revealed in the daily caller yesterday, this is apparently federal policy when it comes to the department of homeland security they don't want to be accused of trampling on immigrants' rights so they don't look at any of their social media postings. now what's interesting is they actually look at all of our postings for any criticism of the department of homeland security. kind of big brother is watching, and if you say anything bad about them they're going to come after you, is the implicit message. but nonetheless, she was able to
4:08 am
get through, even though she had that stuff there, because they didn't want to hurt anybody's feelings. as it turns out, she was the terrorist. retired naval intel officer here on the program, he's outraged. come on. >> this is just ridiculous. i mean we are essentially, through this policy, affording non-u.s. persons in a preimmigrant, preimmigration status the same constitutional rights as an american citizen, or a legal resident. and then there's the whole emotional factor here, where we're actually doing it to spare people's feelings, and bad pr blowback. it's unbelievable. >> the folks who have committed themselves to the path of jihad with isis or al qaeda have no intention of returning tour kindness whatsoever. and that has been paid for in blood, i'm afraid. >> well, and the questions that they were asked, tashfeen malik, have you ever been part of a terrorist organization, have you ever given money to a terrorist organization. >> no, no, no. >> scout's honor?
4:09 am
are you just going to believe her? why not check the facebook page because you can't check social media because it's going to hurt somebody's feelings. it's politically incorrect. >> admiral kirby said yesterday i think it's safe to say there's going to be lessons learned here. at the very least, they got to change the policy, so far no commitment to change the policy. >> we've got to get out in front of it with technology. look at what -- how easily they are recruiting and radicalizing people online through social media, too. we need to find a way to stop that. >> if the department of homeland security wants us to vet anybody, we got facebook. we'll look them up for you. >> i'll do it. >> she's got a facebook account, as well. heather nauert joins us live. >> good morning, everybody. hope you're off to a good day. let's start out with a fox news alert. the accused army desetter bowe bergdahl could face life in prison after his charges are referred to a general court-martial. this decision flies in the face of an earlier decision to handle the case at a misdemeanor level. judge napolitano joined us earlier with another odd twist. listen to this one. >> the lawyer has been making
4:10 am
noises in the legal community that if the case is tried, big if, one of the defense witnesses will be either present or former president barack obama. >> oh. boy. >> the reason why it may never be tried while barack obama is president, and he may order the military to cut a deal with this kid. >> wow. as the world turns, huh? bergdahl charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy after he walked off the base and fell into the hands of the taliban in afghanistan in 2009. he was freed five years later in exchange for five taliban det n detainees who were being held at guantanamo bay. two stories this morning about isis in america. a former national guard soldier is now facing decades in prison for allegedly plotting to kill a fellow soldier here on u.s. soil. hassan edmonds is accused of planning to target a military armory in illinois with assault rifles and grenades, and then in baltimore an accused isis fighter claims that he wasn't

4:13 am
>> brian, you're fired. >> see you soon, gang. >> all right, see you later. >> all right. let me just tell you what's straight ahead because my name is on there. just yesterday the president vowed to destroy isis. >> even as we're relentless we have to be smart, targeting isil surgically with precision. >> but a new poll says americans think we're not doing enough. a former assistant secretary of defense on the five things we need to do to change next. >> pretty good shot. that's chris kyle's wife taya kyle. how she's using a shoot-out to keep the american sniper's memory alive. we went to the range with her and she's here limp this morning.

the great beauty of owning a property is that you can create wealth through capital appreciation, and this has been denied to many south africans for generations. this is an opportunity to right that wrong. the idea was to bring capital into the affordable housing space in south africa, with a fund that offers families of modest income safe and good accommodation. citi got involved very early on and showed an enormous commitment. and that gave other investors confidence. citi's really unique, because they bring deep understanding of what's happening in africa.
4:17 am
i really believe we only live once, and so you need to take an idea that you have and go for it. you have the opportunity to say, "i've been part of the creation of over 27,000 units of housing," and to replicate this across the entire african continent. just yesterday after a 90-minute pentagon briefing, president obama vowed the u.s. will destroy isis. >> even as we're relentless we have to be smart, targeting isil surgically, with precision. at the same time our partners on the ground are rooting isil out,
4:18 am
town by town, neighborhood by neighborhood, block by block. that is what this campaign is doing. we are hitting isil harder than ever. >> but is this hard enough? former assistant secretary of defense and retired marine infantryman joins us now with what means to change. good morning and thanks for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> first, quickly, what did you think of the president's speech yesterday? >> he's not serious. he's faking. basically, he's saying we're going to be relentless with restrained bombing. we could bomb for the next 20 years, and isil would still be there. >> unfortunately you're right. and one of the problems and you're going to address that, is the fact that 80% of the time, after we send out a sortie they return with all the bombs. we're not dropping the bombs on them. yesterday the president said we need to target them with precision. >> well, i've been on a lot of battlefields and what we're trying to do is be the most
4:19 am
moral people in the world, and at the same time, win a war. and you can't be both. you can't go out and drop leaflets first, and then after you've dropped your leaflets come back and say tomorrow i'm going to bomb you. we're not serious about this campaign. if you were serious, you would have to go on the ground, with sunni arabs, and this president refuses to do that, so we're in for a rough two years. not just a year. because after he leaves office, it's going to take the next president a year to explain to the american public why we have to do what this president has not been willing to do for four years. >> the civilian casualties is a tough toll to swallow. but i guess you say this is war. next up, do we need to send in ground troops? >> well, the issue is, who's going to do this. we have to send them in. because the sunni arabs will come if they trust us. but right now they don't trust us because we were there with
4:20 am
them and then we left. and only we have the power on the ground to really make the difference. the sunni arabs will be with us. but we have to be there. but right now, they have no trust in us. none. none whatsoever. >> i understand. you also say the vietnam era tactic of fire and maneuver has gone away. what do you mean? >> well, we don't really close with the enemy and that's fine. but we wear a lot of heavy armor, we move forward on the battlefields, and then we use an enormous amount of firepower. when i was in the battles with the marines at fallujah, you get us in there, we're going to do the job, but there's going to be a lot of death and destruction. you can't go to war and say there's not going to be death and destruction. >> yeah. >> but the one thing, steve, i don't think we should do. some of the candidates are talking about a no-fly safe zone. >> you're not a fan? >> don't do that. >> okay. >> the no-fly safe zone makes us responsible for 4 million
4:21 am
refugees on the defense, and will make our own west bank, our own palestine, for ten years. not a good idea. >> well let's see if they mention that tonight. bing west we thank you very much for joining us today from rhode island, sir. >> thank you. >> all right. >> more en frin two minutes. get complete protection with the purple pill. the new leader in frequent heartburn. that's nexium level protection.

4:25 am
tennessee titans. thank you for joining us. i appreciate it. >> absolutely. >> i always had problems with that. number one, there's free agencies after when you're drafted. i always thought for mr. irrelevant you've got to be a good sport but inside it's got to bother you. did it bother you at the time? >> not really, to be honest with you. you absolutely have to have thick skin about it. and one of the things about being mr. irrelevant, you know, that i always looksed at it, it was an opportunity. a lot of people probably look at something like that and say mr. irrelevant and don't expect a lot from that person because of the title. but for me, i didn't really care what other people expected or what other people thought it was more about, you know, how i felt about the way that i could perform and the way that i could play and it was an opportunity and i was very blessed to have that opportunity. >> so you were motivated by it. even though you did a parade, i guess they had you in a kayak? >> yeah, matter of fact, one of the -- i'll never forget. they have a parade for you out in california, to kind of roast you and toast you a little bit.

and it's just a balboa yacht club which is a beautiful yacht club, there's a lot of million dollar yachts around and they tell me i'm going to make a grand entrance on the beach where everybody's waiting and i'm going to come in on one of those boats. i'm thinking this is going to be pretty sweet and sure enough they take me around to the back of the marina and there's a little canoe with like a 5 horse power johnson engine on the back and my grand approach was on that little canoe. >> so when did you say to yourself, okay, i'm going to break through. you played a bunch of sports. you're an excellent athlete. when did things start turning around for you? >> yeah, i really never played football until i got to high school. i kind of played everything else, you know, i played soccer, and baseball and basketball and golf. and really it wasn't until my freshman year of high school that my soccer coach was like, hey, look you really need to go down and kick. i've never seen anybody hit a ball that hard. for the longest time i didn't want to do it, finally he made me go down to practice a week before the first game and they kind of said hey buddy, you're
4:27 am
suiting up on friday night. that's kind of how that started. >> and next thing you know, you're one of the finest kickers in the league. ryan before that, though, not only mr. irrelevant bothered you, you also had an incident when you got caught under the flag, correct? >> yeah. that was -- that was pretty funny. we were playing up in indianapolis last year, and if you're not familiar a lot of times the nfl games for the national anthem they'll have a, you know, a huge american flag. it's actually pretty awesome, but it covers the entire field and i always like to hit a kickoff or two right before the game starts and i was out in the middle of the field hitting my kickoff and i saw all the service men and women coming from our sideline with the flag, and usually i thought i had another minute or two, and unfortunately i hit that kickoff and next thing i know they're running at me, it was decision time for me, i could either run to the colts sideline and be on their sideline for the national anthem, which would probably be pretty embears aing and i could hit the deck and try to go under the flag. split second decision that's what i decided to do. ended up being stuck under the
4:28 am
flag for the national anthem. it was only about three minutes but it seemed like about 30. it was the longest national anthem of my life. >> and your new career has produced a three-year deal with $ million. mr. irrelevant also a new dad, kr ekt >> yeah, absolutely. my wife and i just had our first son about 3 1/2 months ago. and man, what an awesome experience that's been. it's a blessing beyond belief. >> and ryan you got this other thing that every kicker has that's successful. you can perform under pressure. you know you're only as good as your last kick and you were playing almost with house money to get here. how does your mind-set today now that you have the contract, you have the significance, and you have the success? >> you know, honestly, i really don't think about any of that stuff to be honest with you. i don't think about a contract or success or anything like that. it sounds so cliche but honestly i try to get a little bit better each and every day. and at the end of the career, we'll talk about all that stuff. but, right now, it's just trying to get better each and every day.
4:29 am
i think if you go into it with that attitude, you know, and you never get comfortable. >> right. >> you always keep working, i think that you know that's kind of the approach that i've had. and i plan on doing that for a long time. >> ryan, thanks so much. appreciate your story. you motivate a lot of people today no matter where they are or what position they are in life or in sports or in the kicking game. ryan succop, thanks so much. >> thanks for having me. >> no longer mr. irrelevant. probably never was. straight ahead, heather nauert hits the range with the american sniper's wife taya kyle. >> did i get it? >> yeah. >> nice. >> nice. >> i closed my eyes and blinked. >> how did that go? taya here to talk about it. there she is. then a businessman, shames beggars panhandling on the street after they refuse his offer for a job. is this going too far or is it fair game? today people are coming out

all right. it's 28 minutes before the top of the hour on this tuesday. in just a moment taya kyle is going to sit down on the couch with us because you went down to texas to interview her. >> that's right. we did a lot down in texas. we'll tell you about that in just a few minutes. first i've got some headlines. comedian bill cosby now turning the table on several women who've accused him of sexual assault, claiming defamation. cosby just countersuing seven women who had sued him. he claims the sexual assault allegations have hurt his reputation so much that they ruined plans for a new tv show. the 78-year-old denies all sexual assault allegations against him, and has not been charged with a crime. a coffee throwing match erupts at a michigan tim horton's drive-thru. an employee appears to launch a cup of scalding hot coffee and doughnut holes at a customer,
4:34 am
even spitting at one point. the customer retaliates throwing an old cup of coffee back through the window. things apparently got to this point when another employee said that she wouldn't throw out the customer's empty coffee cup. they need to chill out a little bit there. a businessman going viral after turning the tables on some panhandles in iowa. he saw these two on the side of the road claiming to be broke and hungry. he then offered them a job. but they turned it down. the businessman then made his own sign, saying offered these guys a job, they said no. don't give them any money. that happened in iowa. >> those are your headlines. >> in the mean time he made impossible shots immortalized in the hollywood block buster movie "american sniper." >> but, what if there was a rifle that could turn a novice
4:35 am
into a world class sharp shooter like chris kyle? taya kyle, wife of the lethal sniper, and the most infamous sniper in military history joins us right now. after you first had joined, you two had 450ked up with heather nauert. >> we had a ball, didn't we? >> yes. >> she knows how to shoot. she grew up where she had to shoot her own food. >> very tough. >> went out to texas and there was a competition to raise money for the chris kyle foundation. you are doing so much terrific work to help veterans and first responders. i want to tell everybody about that as you will in your own words. but this is an amazing competition that pitted you against the nra world champion, and she's a novice shooter, and so they went out to check it out. check out texas here. >> hit it.
4:36 am
>> what brings you out here today? >> love of my country. and just to support a great cause. >> looking out at this big old crowd here, what do you think? what's your reaction? >> i'm always in awe of it. it makes me emotional really because i'm grateful. i'm grateful that there's this many people that care. i think there's so much good. there's so many more good people in this world than there ever will be bad. >> it's that optimism that has taya kyle thinking how she, like her husband, can help others. today she stands to raise half a million dollars for america's heroes if she can outshoot her competition >> into the breeze -- >> all the things i'm sure your husband told you about. >> the thing is chris and i didn't go shooting all that often together. i just thought about him, what would he say. and i felt like i heard him. >> though her husband was the most lethal sniper in military history taya is a novice shooter. yet she still managed to crush her competition, in a four hour
4:37 am
shoot-out thanks to a new series of high tech rifles by tracking points. >> it's a hit. >> oh. >> this is an m-800 designed as a replacement for the m-110 and m-14. it's branded as the world's first smart gun. >> it does all the shooting for you. >> this is the weapon right here. it weighs about 15 pounds. it incorporates fighter jet tracking technology. so i could just point it at the target, calculate the wind speed and then shoot. and the gun does the rest. the idea came from a chance meeting between john mchale, the head of tracking point, and chris kyle. >> i started telling him what i was thinking. we sat down for a couple hours and said what are the variables. how do people make mistakes? the spirit of chris kyle is in this gun. >> what is your hope to do with this technology? >> well, we want to get in the hands of our first responders.
4:38 am
we want to get in the hands of our military. and you see they're here. right? we saw what happened in san bernardino. we saw what happened in paris. and this weapon would strike fear in the hearts of extremists. >> taya trained up in just a few days with the help of max underwood. a marine who served in afghanistan. >> what was she like to train? >> we had some rough spots but it's all about staying relaxed. >> it's still, you know, a weapon that you have to know how to hold the right way. you still have to do the trigger pull and lock onto your target and get back to the target that you locked onto. so there's a little bit of stress at first. for me it's a learning curve and i kind of like the challenge of it. >> wow. you got it. >> you make this look like you're a pro. >> well, the gun does all the work for you. i mean, it's incredible, really. >> okay so you're going to show me how to do this? >> yep. >> okay. >> did i get it?
4:39 am
>> yeah. >> nice. >> nice. i closed my eyes and blinked. sorry. >> and you still got it. so there you go. >> no blinking. >> and you still got the target? >> blinking could throw a shot as anyone who shot a gun can know. but this thing i did not miss at 350 yards and you were an awesome trainer. and so was max. >> taya explain how that -- how does it work? >> well the thing is that after heather had it tagged that's why she could blink. first you have to tag it so there's like a red dot that when you're looking through the scope you line up your target and you hit that, you tag it -- >> do you pull the trigger to market? >> some of them you do and some of the other models you push a button. after that you're good. so you can untag and retag until you have the hit where you want it. after that you just bring the gun back up, and when the gun finds that dot, and lines up with it again and calculates all the angles and ballistics and earth rotation and all that it fires. >> even on a moving target? >> yeah. >> once they tag it, and that
4:40 am
person's head moves -- >> right. >> the bullet will find it. >> well, it's not -- >> yeah you have to move the gun and as soon as it lines up with where you tagged again calculating for all the angles and everything. >> incredible technology. the creator met with your husband chris kyle and said what are the things that you have to think about it and he made a gun that thinks about those things for you? >> yeah. >> that is the coolest part. you have to know a little bit and you have the same safety precautions and all of that stuff. >> amazing. and you trained up for about a week to learn how to use this. you had a marine trainer who served in the marines. wonderful young guy who did this and you beat the nra world shooting champion. that was impressive. and it was a four-hour shoot-out. so when you're shooting for four hours that is exhausting. mentally and physically and she did it. a champ. >> won a whole bunch of money for a good cause and you're going to be back in the next hour, right? with heather? >> in the next hour we'll talk more about the foundation that you're raising money for and the good work that you're doing and
4:41 am
what you and your children have your life going forward so you have such an optimistic message for so many folks out there you all will want to hear it. >> thank you. the point of the event, also, was to get military and first responders to raise that awareness. will truly save lives. >> and you're doing that today. getting the word out. >> in the next hour, in the mean time, one of the hottest holiday gifts for christmas, but there are new rules and warnings you need to hear about drones. under your christmas tree, a live report coming up next. >> and their incredible music video is a touching tribute to our heroes who can't be home for christmas. a cappella group home free performed the christmas classic just ahead. ♪

4:46 am
drones have become a big topic of concern here at laguardia, and many other airports across the country. they've made unannounced visits, not only at the u.s. open tennis tournament here in queens, but also at the macy's thanksgiving day parade. and no doubt hundreds of thousands will be given as gifts this holiday season. and that's why the faa is now requiring people to register their drones. the fee will be $5. drones weighing between about a half a pound and 55 pounds must be registered with the federal government by february 19th. now, what if you don't? well the penalties are quite steep. civil penalties range up to $27,500. criminal penalties, up to $250,000 along with a prison term of up to three years. clearly this has become an increasing problem, something like 100 pilots or more every month are reporting close calls. back to you.

5:02 am
donald in the lion's den. right? he's right in the center. >> yeah. >> and all the lions are going to tear him apart. but the question is, is he going to have faith and belief in the common sense of the american people, come across as presidential, magnanimous? you want to jab at some of the other candidates, i think that would -- you know, that's in order. but i think now is the time for him to turn up the substance, and doesn't mean you can't be entertaining and wistful and self-deprecating, that would be nice. but i think it's time for him to turn up the substance. he has an enormously strong core of supporters. but now it's time to build it out. and tell the establishment candidates, you're messing with the wrong guy now. and take it to the next level. i think cruz -- i wouldn't expect cruz to take a full hit on donald trump. i don't think that's cruz's style. i don't think he's going to do that. i think cruz is going to come with a lot of substance. as far as marco rubio and jeb is
5:03 am
concerned i think they're going to rye to put points on the board. these numbers are terrible for them in these new polls out today. just absolutely terrible. >> as we wrap up the year, how long do you think it's going to be before we see the kaepts in the single digits start to drop out? >> i think it will start happening, may be a few in january because they don't want the utter humiliation of having maybe negative percent, if that's even possible, in iowa and new hampshire. but right after iowa you'll have a number of people dropping out. after new hampshire, depending on how he does, i don't know where rand paul is going to be but i don't expect rand paul staying in it unless he gets some significant uptick in new hampshire. >> yesterday in listening to mark levin, and maybe you on your show, i didn't have a chance. but rush limbaugh. they're really upset that donald trump for the first time used the term maniac to talk about ted cruz, they said well is that how he's going to label all conservatives, because most people look at ted cruz as a conservative's conservative. do you agree that that might have been a little different
5:04 am
going after him as opposed to jeb and rubio and rand? >> we don't check in with each other before our shows. but not surprisingly, i said something quite similar on radio yesterday. i think we have to be really clear on what's going on here. it is the outsider candidates, versus the establishment. and the outsiders are, you know, they have about 65% of the electorate. okay? so it's carson, cruz and trump. for the life of me, i don't understand why donald trump thinks pointing the, you know, the laser down at cruz is smart. you want -- you want to just get rid of these -- these insider candidates. expose the divide in the republican party. and urge those guys to either move off the stage or start compromising with the american people. but, cruz, i don't think that was a smart move. and i don't think it made all that much sense. i mean a maniac? he was doing -- he was doing what he was sent to do by his constituents.
5:05 am
and you can argue that the tactics are of the filibuster didn't really work. i mean i see that point. but a maniac? i just think that's kind of loose verbiage which i don't think really advances the ball for trump. i think he's best when he's going after the establishment candidates. >> all right. we'll know tonight for sure how it all works out. and tomorrow will be our post game show. talk a little bit about this. everybody's still horrified and a little worried about what happened out in san bernardino. how did tashfeen malik, who was radicalized years ago, she posted all this crazy stuff on facebook, and laura, as it turns out, the department of homeland security when they vet these visas, they don't look at your social media, they do look at americans' online accounts to see if they criticize the dhs but she was able to walk right in, after three vettings, yeah, she's fine. what twitter? >> well, political correctness, literally, kills. okay. we have the office of privacy in the homeland security department, that apparently vets
5:06 am
all of its decisions with the aclu, so they decide they're not going to scrub social media. when we get hired by anybody, all of our social media is looked at. and it's smart to do so. because you learn a lot about someone by looking at their social media. but here they refuse to do so because they believed it would be probably part of the stereotyping of all muslims, terrorists, or you know, the aclu would be unhappy because it would be -- >> they didn't want to hurt anybody's feelings. >> but they are -- again, they're treating someone's presence in the united states as a right. you don't have a right to come in to the united states. it's a privilege to come here on a visa, or to become a citizen. now we're just like tossing off these visas like it's nothing. and it -- i think, again, why are the outsiders so popular? why do so many people still like trump, despite what he said about the muslims? or maybe they like him because of what he said about the muslims. because people have no faith in the federal government's ability
5:07 am
to do its basic job. to keep this country safe. we had 10,000 unaccompanied minors crossing the border in the last two months. now, millions of people are in this country, on visas, and who've become permanent residents who probably -- we have no idea what they said on social media. are they really the type of people we want in the country? we have no idea. >> you want to come to this country and if you want to marry an american citizen they ask you about the marriage to make sure it's not a sham marriage to get citizenship. when it comes to muslims they don't ask that. because a lot of them in some cases are arranged marriages and they don't want to come off as judgmental. how did that work out for the 14 people who are dead in san bernardino? >> well, they're dead. okay. so i'd like to hear what their family members think about a federal government that puts islamophobia and the concern about that ahead of the safety and security of all people, from all races, all religions, and backgrounds. america now is seeing, as the curtain is being pulled back,
5:08 am
seeing the utter incompetence or purposeful failure of this administration to do its job. you know what donald trump and ted cruz and all these guys focusing on tonight? is that. we got to beat the next democrat coming forward in 2016, hillary clinton, because we cannot continue more of the same. this is an outrage. people are rightfully angry about what's happened to this country. our safety, security, the rule of law, out the window for political correctness, and its desire to bring in a new electorate to replace the old one who frankly is on to these scams. that's what we should be focusing on tonight, the utter incompetence and purposeful, and willful refusal of those people to follow the rule of law and common sense. >> we want to get your take on a cultural topic now. around the holidays everybody wants to help out those in need. let's go to iowa and show you these pictures where a guy who was claiming to be homeless was asking for some help, asking for
5:09 am

donald j. trump! >> jeb bush is a low energy person. for him, to get things done is hard. very low energy. >> why does he keep interrupting anybody? >> i never attacked him on his looks and believe me there's plenty of subject matter right there. >> you look at the way he's dealt with the senate, where he goes in there like a, frankly like a little bit of a maniac. >> all right. so that's in one corner. >> and in the other corner, the contender, from the state of texas. senator cruz! >> the questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the american people don't trust the media. how about talking about the substantive issues people care about. >> mr. president, you want to insult me, you can do it overseas, you can do it in turkey you can do it in foreign countries but i would encourage you, mr. president, come back

and insult me to my face. let's have a debate on syrian refugees right now. >> okay. so the ring is set. >> the ring is set. so let's talk about what's going to happen tonight. cnn is hoping that the republican candidates trump and cruz kill each other in the ratings. destroy each other for the nomination. and there will be questions that will ensure that. but in my view, you may not see a punchout between donald trump and ted cruz. >> really? >> the smart money is saying that they both have too much to lose in going for the knockout punch tonight. ted cruz, one of the best debaters, not only in the country but in the world, argued nine times in the u.s. supreme court. but at the same time, donald trump has the capacity and we just saw it with one word, one phrase, one sentence, to deliver a right cross, a left cross, a knockout punch. okay, cruz is the boxer here. but they're both great counterpunchers. they both wait, and they may both count on other candidates

to knock out cruz, and to knock out trump. and stand there in a nonaggression pact. that may be the interesting thing that we see tonight that they stand mute, and maybe like batman and superman, after fighting each other, come together in some way. >> so what you're suggesting is maybe they're not going to come to fisticuffs but the other guys over there, who would like to be in their shoes, will do -- >> they're going to be pounding cruz big time because he's the contender. they're going to be pounding trump. they've been unsuccessful at pounding trump. so i believe they're going to focus their attentions now on ted cruz. that may help trump. that may help cruz. they both may emerge at the top of the pack again, live to fight another day. they're both some of the smartest candidates we've seen in a long time. >> all right. we'll be watching. ladies and gentlemen, peter johnson jr. with analysis. thank you very much. >> we'll be back tomorrow. >> we'll be right back. it's here, the first gummy multivitamin...
