problems here. that is past nearly nearly and in the central gfl. we are talking 3 or 4 weeks. we'll deal with 92eding ongoing. but right here is the st. louis missouri river. that will be the second or third biggest crest ever on record. when you think about the flood in the mississippi river that is saying something. 2011 we had a flood here. it was a slow flooding situation in the spring and summer. it was different than temperatures like. this temperatures in the 30s and all of that flooding. it is it a dangerous situation. these temperatures are going to stay this way for a while.
10:05 am
no changes or warm up. over the next seven days no precipitation in the area. that will help matters. it will take a long time for the water to recedes and spots in missouri, likely in that flooding stage for 3 or 4 days at least. >> thank you, rich. fox news alert. bill cosby, now charged with with sexual assault in pennsylvania for an incident in his home in 2004. they are the first criminal charges since dozens of women came forward a cowing mr. cosbow of drugging and assaulting them. laura has the latest. >> hi, arthel, bill cosbow is facing criminal charges for the first time on the charges and now a warrant out for his arrest.
10:06 am
52 women have come forward to publicly claim that bill cosby sexually abused them and drugged them it started in 1960 and took place in 2008. in pennsylvania that's where the charges were filed in two countries u.s. and canada. this took place in cosby's pennsylvania home. and he's charged with aggravated and indecent assault which is punishable ten years in prison and expected to be arraigned in elkin's park, pennsylvania. cosby said he did have sexual contact but it was consensual. and in today's press conference cosbow made two advances before he drugged her. prosecutors were able to bring charges after learning
10:07 am
information in previously sealed legal documents in a civil deposition. >> reopening the case was our duty as law enforcement officers with a sworn obligation to it uphold our constitutions and to uphold the law. >> reporter: these charge cans are happening just before the 12 year statute of limitation. the attorney said her client welcomes the charges. today's arraignment expected to happen at 4:00 p.m. we'll give you the latest here. >> thank you, laura. >> thanks. a feud between presidential front runner donald trump and hillary clinton is heating up with trump going after bill clinton personally and all of this just days before the former president heads out on the
10:08 am
campaign trail to support his wife's candidacy. we'll bring in our political panel. we'll bring in our fox news contributor and jamie is a editor for the daily caller. thanks for being here. you know, when hillary clinton slammed trump for "a penchant for sexism" i wonder if she unwittingly brought it on herself allowing trump to resurrect bill clinton's unsafory history of sex scandals with women. >> that was going to be resurrected. it helped don would trump. it elwillivated anymore a way to look like a dpop nominee and look like a general election candidate which is a good thing for him right now. it is great for the base and this is a very forgiving base.
10:09 am
trump voters. they don't care he used donate to the clinton foundation and the clintons attended his thir wedding and he's had a past relationship with the clintons and in the impeachment calling bill clinton a great guy. they don't care about that it. >> i wonder if it hurts hillary clinton pretty influential columnist who is critical of donald trump came out and she grease that bill clinton's past is relevant to the wife's campaign. trump has smeared women because of their looks, clinton has preyed on them. does this hurt hillary clinton? >> it certainly takings away the
10:10 am
weapon that the democrats levelled with republicans. how can you do that when bill clinton preyed on women. there are allegations on this day when bill cosby was charged similar to what cosby was charged it takes away the weapon of charging the republicans on a war against women when she is married to someone who has had a personal war against women much of his life. what about trump's strength among women. he insists women voters love him. that's not thorough. according to a fox news poll, among his supporters in the
10:11 am
primaries, 46 percent are men. can we put that up? 46 percent are men to only 30 percent women. and almost the same disparity or gender gap you might call it on his supporters in a general election. does trump have a gender problem because of his verbal attacks on women. >> he has a serious gender problem. pointed out about his comments on carly fiorina and that's what scares republican strategist. if he does get the nom naegz, the republican party has a woman problem anyways in terms of the demographic with of the vote. they need to broaden the base particularly with unmarried women. that is a hard climb if donald trump is the nominee and you are running against a woman,
10:12 am
democratic candidate. >> you know, jamie, women are expected to comproiz 54 percent of the vote next november. they are an important voting block. obama, won the women vote 11 percent over mitt romney. so what about trump's gender gap problem? >> it is a problem, but trump is a master salesman and when he gets to the general election he will focus and his secret weapon is daughter ivanka trump widely respected among the younger professionals and employ her to win back some of the women to support him and close that gender gachlt no question it is a problem to address if he is a general election nominee. >> i was going to agree with that. i have experience at that
10:13 am

10:24 am
against isis. the u.s. navy calling iran's action highly provocative. and firing weapons so close to it commercial ships and internationally recognized traffic lane is unsafe. unprofessional will and inconsistuent with maratime law. joining us is a fox news military analyst. general king. what is going on? is this a drill or threat to close the strait of hermos through which 40 percent of the oil passes through. what is iran up to? >> it is not about closing the strait. this isap area of tension certainly. what it is about arthel, every since the nuclear deal was confirmed, the iranians are
10:25 am
looking for opportunities to demonstrate to the region in particular they are a power broker and they are maintaining their objectives to dominate the region. and they are sort of taking the gloves off to be frank off of it. the united states is right to it was a provocative attack. they fired the missiles away. if they were doing the drill when the war ships were not there. they are messaging and sending a chlor unmistakable message to the gulf states that surround the strait. they are here and they intend to continue their objectives of domination in the region and they know for a fact that the united states has been disengaging from the region and our allies those gulf states
10:26 am
have never felt more vulnerable than they feel now. >> you mention that iran is taking the gloves off. look at the other provocation. the uss theodore roosevelt observed iranian small will boats launching 11 unguided and fox news was the first to report that there was a launch of a medium range ballistic missile capable of striking u.s. military assets in the area and israel. and the u.s. government refused to publicly acknowledge the launch. there are three provocations in the last 14 months. we talk about congress. earlier congress restricted
10:27 am
people who visited iran or hold dual iranian citizenship from visiting without a vis a. iran said it is a violation and they vowed to take action. how should the u.s. react? >> those provocations are clearly planned for the obvious reason that the iran sort of tamps things down while the treaty discussions were taking place and now the gloves are off. these missile tests are medium range ballistic missiles and siing cant range on them and designed to carry weapons and designed to carry what? a nuclear weapon. loud message and more so, bofth those tests are in violation of u.n. resolutions that prohibited those tests and what we should do acknowledge the tests took place, and two, go back to the
10:28 am
u.n. and get sanctions imposed on them. >> parton me, some of those sanctions are set to be relieved. >> what i was trying to say we should go back to the u.n. and get sanctions imposed specifically dealing with the missile test violation. sanctions are being removed from iran because of the nuclear deal. that will give them a win fall of 100 billion plus which they will largely use to finance the objectives in the region. they are dominating syria, iraq and yemen and lebanon. and they are not going to stop there. barain is next and jordan and saudi arabia eventually, they will use that money to get their
10:29 am
objectives and gloves are off and iran is back doing what they have always done. >> that is a ominous prediction, general. i am sure you will be watching and the other leaders will watch how the u.s. responds. i have to leave it there and sorry to interrupt you earlier. >> thank you, arthel. the nsis a may have ended the bulk collection of records. but they are accused of listening in on high ranking israeli conversations and the new report reveals why. >> authorities are launching a major security to protect a new year's tradition in his one 27th year.

10:36 am
>> reporter: this is the law of unintended consequences. if you are at the white house or criticast white house, you are asking questions of what should be be done with that information once you receive it and in particular, greg, there is an important point. was the white house using that information to take a look at how votes may have been going on capitol hill and which way law makers might have been leaning. that's the question that people are asking today. >> and then putting pressure on them depending on how they are leaning. kevin, in beautiful diamond head, honolulu. thank you. joining forces to provide unprecedented security at this year's rose parade in california. authorities using bomb sniffing dogs and surveillance cameras to protect spectators and joining
