tv Americas News HQ FOX News March 26, 2016 12:00pm-2:01pm PDT
trouble. that's all for us in washington, america's election headquarters. thanks for joining us. and we begin with a "fox news alert." major developments in the wake of the brussels terror attacks. i'm uma pemmaraju. belgian prosecutors confirm to fox news that a new suspect is now in custody. belgian media is reporting that he is the third bomber from the airport attack. however, we are still working to confirm this. here's a look at the suspect right now i fied as faycal cheffou, who claims to be a filmmaker and freelance journalist. this video shows him reporting outside a center in belgium for asylum seekers. let's get the latest from mike tobin joining us live in central brussels. what more can you tell us about
the suspect? >> reporter: uma, this is one of the guys who was picked up in that flurry of police activity thursday night. local media identifies him as faycal cheffou. they describe him as a self-declared or web journalist, and that's where we get the video of him from. the prosecutor's office has only identified him as faycal c, charged with participating in a terrorist attack, terrorist murder and attempted terrorist murder. local media says he is the mysterious third bomber, the man in the light coat to the far right of the shot. that third bomb is said to have been the largest and it did not go off. there has been a frenzy of police activity over the last three days, really. nine people have been picked up. two of them have been charged with participating in the activities of a terrorist organization. i should say two additional people have been charged with that. uma? >> mike, what more can you tell us about tomorrow's planned solidarity march? we understand it's being canceled. >> reporter: right. they were going to call it the march against fear, but the
interior minister has asked the organizers to call it off and asked people to stay home in part because the terror threat sea level still at its second highest level, level three. the march could provide a target. it seems the largest reason is because off police force out here that is already overworked and strained, and you get a big public event and you can further strain the resources of the police. uma? >> going the extra mile for security. mike, thank you very much. meantime, secretary of state john kerry speaking out in brussels defending president obama's response to these attacks and the administration's overall campaign to go after isis. >> the very region dash is resorting to actions outside the middle east is its fantasy of a caliphate is collapsing before their eyes. its territory is shrinking every day. its leaders are being decimated. its revenue sources are dwindling. and its fighters are fleeing.
>> let's bring in now general michael flynn, former director of the intelligence agency in the obama administration. honor to have you here. welcome to the program. >> nice to be with you, uma. >> you have been saying the obama administration must recognize radical islam for what it is and stop the political correctness, yet the white house will not call what happened in belgium and other terrorist incident acts by islamic terrorists. what do you make of john kerry's remarks we're winning the fight and the reason isis is resorting to action outside the middle east is its fantasy of a caliphate is now collapsing? how can we say that we're winning against isis at a time when they continue to kill and launch attacks? >> yeah. john kerry, secretary kerry, he's living in a world but it's not the world that most of us are living on or living in
today. i was stunned by his remarks and actually his view and his definition of this caliphate, which he's only describing as in parts of iraq and parts of syria, that's not what the enemy that we are facing, this radicalized islamic state, that's not how they define their battlefield. their battlefield is brussels, paris france, their battlefield is places in libya, mali. their battlefield is san bernardino, california. that's the caliphate that they see. so these tactical actions that our great military forces are being limited to in places like iraq and syria, they're only going to do so much, and frankly, what we're going to have is we're going to have a big mess left for the next administration, whoever that administration is. i know there's a lot of rhetoric today about what to do and there are some solutions to this problem, uma, but john kerry's
remarks are remarks that to me are unrealistic and he's living in a dream world. >> added to this, defense secretary ash carter yesterday said, quote, momentum is clearly on our side, yet critics such as yourself are saying we haven't defined the enemy. what kind of leadership is needed right now? >> i listened to secretary carter's remarks and the general's remarks. what the military has been asked to do is to work with the iraqi security forces, and we're doing very, very lit until syria, be honest with you, very little, and so our military is doing what they have been asked to do by the white house and actually it's very, very minimal in terms of tactical operations. so all we are looking at right now is we're looking at tactical operations from the military perspective, but the lack of cohesiveness, the lack of clarity, and the lack of a
broader strategy that must go after what i just described, uma, as this larger battle space, this larger battlefield that we are on. and so, you know, the administration needs to really -- and honestly, i'm going to -- i don't want to get too long in the tooth here, uma, because of your show, but this administration is going to do very, very little. they're going to do -- they're going to do what we're already seeing them do for the remainder of their administration. so whoever's coming into the white house next is going to have a massive problem to deal with and it's going to be global and we are going to see more of these attacks because the enemy does not see iraq and syria as their only battlefield. their battlefield is frankly a global battlefield, and until we recognize that and go after the underpinning ideology that we are facing and clearly define that, and it does mean to state it and then figure out how to
get after it, we are not going to defeat this thing. i don't care what anybody says. tactically, the tactical operations in iraq and syria, they make us feel good,capture we've captured a lot of bad guys. we killed bin laden. we killed bin laden. what has that resulted in? i could go on and on. >> let me ask you this. there are published reports suggesting the president's muted reaction to the brussel attacks is by design, he believes overreacting to a terrorist attack, no matter how horrific, elevates extremist groups in a way that exaggerates their influence. how much do the family of those victims who wonder why more isn't being done to cooperate between u.s. and europe before another attack takes place? >> i totally disagree with the way the president has characterized that. in a way the president of the united states is implying this problem is too hard, you know, it's too tough, this -- these guys are going to conduct these
types of attacks. i think there was a comment made by him about the number of, you know, deaths by gun violence are more than the number of terrorists, you know, deaths by terrorist attacks. what does ma that mean? we allow this to keep happening? no. we have to do far more, and i think president has underestimated this, but i think actually frankly, i think the president's tired of dealing with it and to a degree he sort of, you know, in his sort of circumspect way of looking at this, it's get me out of office, keep doing what we're doing, and turn this over to the next administration. >> you think he's letting the clock run out until the next president takes over. in terms of the immediate, what's the fallout with revelations that belgium has some major intelligence shortcomings and that's what's contributed to this week's attack? do you believe europeans can forego political correctness as it pursues radical extremists? >> the european community is not
just belgium with their intelligence sharing. it's all of us, even the united states. that's one of the steps that has to be certainly taken. but i think that this idea of apologizing or we're all kind of uncomfortable in our chairs about how we're characterizing this enemy, i mean, let's have the conversation with moderate muslim leaders. let's have moderate muslim leaders globally to include leaders in the region of the world we're talking about, i want to hear their strong voices. i want to see the strong condemnation of these individuals who are radicalized, and they're radical itzed silver medalist -- islamist, so we have to deal with the problem. it has not been reported but i've been with some of my sources in europe. one of these guys was taking photos of a nuclear power plant in belgium. that's -- you know, there's been a lot of reporting on that
inside of europe. there's been very little of it reported here. we know they have the intention to get their hands on weapons of mass destruction, uma. this is a cunning, savvy enemy, and i know we have a lot of problems to deal with in the future and it's going to take far more than the next few months of this president. >> no doubt. general, always good to see you. thanks for joining us with your insights. >> happy easter. >> you too. concerns about airport security at home have spiked after what we've witnessed in belgium. this after the terrorists set off two bombs in that crowded area, public area of the brussels airport well before travelers make their way to the screened security check points. many people say our airports need a major overhaul and countries like israel know first hand why it's important to stay individu vigilant and go the extra mile for security. the current israeli ambassador
to the u.n., also the former deputy defense minister of israel joins us. thanks for joining us today. >> pleasure. >> we are here again talking about airport security, again, reigniting debate about going that extra mile when it comes to protecting our citizens here and overseas as well as something you know first hand what it takes to make that happen. it's a complete change in mind-set, isn't it? >> absolutely. we need clarity. we have to be offensive against the terrorists. talk about belgium, in belgium today you're not allowed to make arrests at night. police not entering certain neighborhoods. you cannot fight terrorism with remote control. you have to engage. when you talk about the airports, the main target of the terrorists, it's a symbol to attack airports. in israel, in the u.s., and in europe, and fortunately we are experienced with that. >> people are screened before
they walk in the door. >> absolutely. basically, you have somebody on the road to the airport. you're not stopping but somebody is looking at the car, looking for suspicious signs. maybe you are sweating, maybe something looks weird. for example, in belgium, the guy was wearing one glove. somebody should have seen it before he entered the airport. when you enter the terminal, somebody else is looking at you. >> taking a look at some of the images from tel aviv airport right now. >> then before you go and check in, somebody is conducting a short interview. maybe not politically correct in the u.s. or the europe but you need to know the suspects. if you have a grandmother who's 85 years old traveling with her grandchildren, you don't need to spend a lot of time asking her questions. but if somebody is young and looks suspicious, yes, you need to ask him, look at his language before he's boarding the plane. that's what we are doing in our airport. by the way, 40 years ago people laughed at that, look what they
are doing in their airports, standing in line. today you and me, when we board a plane, we stand in line, we got used to it, and i think europe and also in the u.s. we must think about changes for the future. >> people say it would take a great deal of effort to coordinate communications between so many agencies in the united states, the tsa, the local police department, the federal government. what do you say to people who talk about things like that when it comes to protecting the homeland? >> you have to look at the picture. the terrorists become much more sophisticat sophisticated, intelligent. they're using technology. we have to do the same. to require cooperation -- >> why is it working in israel? and why have people accepted it as a way of life there? >> we have no choice. by the way, israel is a strong democracy. people are happy to live there. when you come to the airport, you don't need to come three hours before your flight. you come an hour and a half. >> i've been there.
>> a great place to live. we respect if somebody stops me why i'm shopping at the mall and asks to see my bag, i will respect the officer, allow him to see it. we have to understand, terrorists are looking to hurt us in the most delicate places so the public must understand about the way to handle it. >> it's no longer a situation where we have to think of convenience first for travelers because we're seeing over and over again this may end up becoming unfortunately for a while the new normal. >> well, you get used to it. even when you are being checked you get used to it. in the airport, if somebody is asking you two or three times before you board the plane, you get used to it. i think in europe they have to wake up. they have to wake um. yes, we all want to live the good life but unfortunately -- >> do you think political correctness has taken over europe as well? >> absolutely. look at the issue of profiling. some people say you can't do it, it's not politically correct. i say you have to do it because
we don't want to have everybody standing in line for hours. if somebody looks suspicious, take him aside and ask him more questions. >> it works in israel and very effectively. >> it does. it does. actually, we cooperate with our american allies here in the u.s. we do it also with europeans. also you have to work together. we have to share intelligence. i don't go into detail, but i think if we share the intelligence -- if the europeans share the intelligence among themselves maybe you could have avoided some of the incidents. >> good to see you. thanks for being here. >> thank you. now we want to hear from you. does the killing of isis' number two man and the pentagon's plans to increase our troop levels in iraq make you feel for confident in its efforts to defeat the terror group? i'd like to hear from you. tweet me @umapemmaraju. we'll try to get your answers later in the show. shifting gears, senator ted cruz getting major endorsements from some key gop establishment members. will most of the gop establishment now back the texas
senator as a way to stop donald trump? mean. meanwhile, wisconsin governor and former presidential candidate scott walker suggesting a new candidate will join the mix before the convention. all of this raising more concerns about the deep divide within the gop. >> the worst thing that can happen to america is not a party that is having some internal fighting. the worst thing is to have hillary clinton or bernie sanders as the next president of the united states. don't let dust and allergies get between you

welcome back, everybody. shifting now to politics and texas senator ted cruz winning some key endorsements this week from members of the republican establishment including jeb bush. this as many republicans try to block donald trump from winning the party's nomination. >> we can't control the party. we're going to sink the party. i think trump is probably going to win this on the first ballot and his only real challenger is cruz because you add the cruz and trump delegates together, they are not for the beltway and the beltway is not going to put some sock puppet in there at cleveland. >> that from conservative pat buchanan. ted cruz is not exactly a
favorite son in the gop establishment. how real is their support and will it help him win the nomination? joining us now for more on the infighting taking place within the gop, conservative author and commentator david lin baugh, who also is the author of "finding jesus in the old testament." welcome. great to have you on the program. >> thank you. great to be here. >> you know, there's ban lot of talk this week about the concerns and the divide within the gop at this moment. tell me how you're feeling at this point knowing that there is a battle royale going on behind the scenes within the party and particularly within the establishment. >> well, both trump and cruz are anathema to the republican establishment, but i think they finally -- they're finally coming along to realizing that trump is far worse and that cruz, while he may be unlikable to them and may have been an annoyance to them, is still a rock-solid republican and
rock-solid conservative who will usher in a majority of republicans in the senate and congress if he wins. i think they understand it will be much easier to work with if he wins. trump is a wild card and i think they really fear him. i don't see that -- i think it's a fantasy to think that some third party or third division movement could come in and undercut trump or cruz. i think what will likely happen is neither will get to 1,237 before the convention and it will be a hotly contested fights for those delegates among those two. >> let me ask you this. there are those like governor scott walker who this week is suggesting that there could be an outsider coming in who is not on the roster right now. it's not kasich, cruz, or trump. and that person could take the nomination. i just want to bring up a quote
he says. i think if it's an open convention it's very likely the nominee would be someone who's not currently running. >> i completely disagree. he has to know, and maybe he doesn't know, but most people understand that if the establishment tries to pick someone else, there will be serious hell to pay throughout and the party will virtually be over. i know that sounds melodramatic but maybe that's not bad in the end because there's so much of a fissure in the party between the trump populace and the real conservatives that i see real problems whether trump wins or doesn't win following this convention. >> and what about the arguments going on right now that we're hearing from insiders who are saying to trump, if you don't get the majority, there will be no nomination?
so that you either get the number of delegates needed or forget it, there's no way the person who's leading with the most delegates can have a pathway to the white house? >> well, for the longest time i thought that if someone gets close to the 1,237 he'll probably get it at the convention. i still think that is true. but if trump is sufficiently short, 100, 150, and cruz is sufficiently close, i think it will be viewed as fair game and a fair fight for them to go after the uncommitted delegates on the second ballot. but i want to repeat this. this is very important. the way i look at the trump people, the trump supporters, i think they will be furious if trump doesn't get it no matter what. i think they have this entitlement attitude, no offense to trump supporters, just my observation, if he doesn't win, no matter what they're going to be furious. i don't think the cruz people will take their ball and go home, but i do think the trump people will.
and that's a real problem for the party. >> you mentioned a moment ago that whether trump gets it or not, that they're going to be major problem within the party in terms of healing going forward. what's your biggest concern at this point even though it's still early, we're not even in the summer yet, but the fact we're talking about it at this point, what's concern? >> i don't think it's a matter of healing, many ma uma. it's matter of an ideological schism. this trump thing has brought a lot of things to life. the republicans that are supporting trump or the independents or democrats, whatever they are, do not subscribe to conservativism, many of them. they argue on the one hand that they are conservative and they're indignant when you say they're not, and in the same breath they say they're not and conservativism is dead and conservativism along with the gop establishment has been corrupted itself. conservativism and conservatives have to be thrown out. they want to burn the house down
and replace wit some unpredictable wild card, and i think it's a dangerous proposition. i don't think, however, that people who are completely pessimistic about the republicans winning in the general election are accurate. hillary clinton is imminently beatable. she's the worst candidate that we've seen in a long time, and poll matchups between her and cruz, at least, show that cruz could handily beat her. not so much with trump. i think we're seeing a peak of trump's support. there are so many negatives on trump that i don't see how he could beat much of any democrat. i know there's a contrary argument that he can draw other people, but i don't know that he'll draw them to the general. he's drawing them in the crossover open primaries. i'll be surprised if he gets have many in the general. >> david, good to have you on the program today. thanks for joining us. obviously lots of fireworks remain on the horizon. ? thank you. >> appreciate it. more threats from north
korea. why the communist country is demanding that south korea publicly execute officials. and threatening to attack the presidential palace there. plus, the terror attacks in brussels becoming a major topic on the campaign trail. what the candidates are saying and how the attacks there could be reshaping the presidential race here. and more u.s. troops could be heading to iraq to help fight against isis. is this enough to defeat the terrorists or should we be doing more? lieutenant colonel oliver north will be joining us with his unique perspective.

three states holding democrat caucuses today -- hawaii, alaska, and washington. hillary clinton and bernie sanders fighting for more than 130 delegates in those contests. the associated press reporting records show defense secretary ash carter used his personal e-mail account for governor's business for nearly a year until last december, months after the e-mail controversy erupted over hillary clinton's use of a private e-mail server. the defense department releasing more than 1,300 pages of carter's e-mails. none of them, though, containing classified information. and now north korea threatening attacks to south korea's presidential palace demanding an apology from the south's president for what it call, quote, treason. a north korea propaganda outlet also posting a video depicting a nuclear attack on washington, d.c. now back to the latest on our top story, the brussels terrorist attacks. the ongoing investigation and
the fallout, a new suspect in custody in belgium. here in the u.s., presidential candidates weighing in on the horrific attacks raising new questions about fighting terrorism at home and abroad. brian yen joins us live from our new york newsroom with details. brian? >> reporter: both donald trump and senator ted cruz seemed to spend the week trying to outgun each other taking on isis and islamic terrorists. senator cruz reiterating his calls for carpet bombing isis, cruz calling for increased patrols and surveillance in muslim neighborhoods nationwide, praising a past new york city program which did that after the 9/11 attacks. this prompting new york city mayor bill de blasio to blast cruz for suggesting more surveillance, calling it demagoguery. in an interview with "fox news sunday" airing tomorrow, cruz blasted de blasio's political correctness and said he wants to implement new york's past program nationwide.
>> it engaged cooperatively with the muslim community, but it got involved to prevent radicalization, to prevent radical islamic ter or the cells from forming and preventing acts of terror before they're carried out. >> donald trump restating his position on a temporary ban on muslims entering the u.s. until we, quote, figure out what's going on, tweeting, europe and the u.s. must immediately stop taking in people from syria. this will be the destruction of civilization as we know it. so sad. trump also suggested muslims are not doing enough to police their own communities. he's pushed to allow more torture, specifically waterboarding, and hi said america should rethink whether it should be a part of nato, calling it, quote, obsolete. the democratic presidential front-runner hillary clinton said turning our back on nato would be like christmas for russia and vladimir putin. she blasted both cruz and trump as two loose cannons. >> we cannot allow our nation to be pitting groups of people
against one another. we cannot give in to panic and fear. >> reporter: bernie sanders had a similar message at a rally yesterday in portland, oregon, saying this war is against isis and not islam, a religion. uma? >> thank you very much. >> no problem. and now this "fox news alert." striking back at isis. the pentagon announcing plans to increase the number of u.s. troops in iraq to help defeat the terrorists there. this comes as we get new details about the raid that killed the islamic state's finance minister. defense secretary ash carter saying the terror leader is just one of the targets u.s. special forces took out in that raid. our next guest talked to the chairman of the joint chiefs about eroding the terror group's strong grip on the middle east. >> is this solution going to require tens of thousands of american troops on the ground in either syria or iraq? >> my perspective is long-term
success is going to require effective indigenous forces on the ground for long-term stability, but i do believe that u.s. capabilities, unique u.s. capabilities, are going to be equally important for us to be successful. >> retired marine lieutenant oliver north is here to talk more about his exclusive interview and about a great new special that's airing on the fox news channel. welcome. great to have you on the program. >> good to be with you again. thank you. >> tell me what you made of his remarks overall. it was an exclusive interview and there are a lot of high hopes that the general has that he will make a difference going forward. do you feel confident about that? >> i do, because they talk all the time at the pentagon about the so-called dunford effect, obviously a much more aggressive perspective than has been seen up until now. he's got the ideas of a warrior. he is one. and it's good to have that kind of person as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. general dunford is very
specific. he's not advocating the 82nd airborne division or the 3rd marine division to go back on the ground in the middle east. what he's saying is something that i've been saying far long time -- we need to build a regional coalition that includes egyptians and jordanians and turks and sunnis from the anbar province. sunnis, not shiites, because we need to build trust among them. they really are our allies. and, you know, isis wouldn't exist but for obama's 2011 bugout. that's what the troops call it, the obama bugout, back in 2011, when he pulled all u.s. troops out of iraq in the space of a month. the weakness we've shown with the syrian civil war, being unable to tell the iranian government to help, all those have contributed to the suck oesz of isis. as long as isis has a safe haven like in raqqah or certain places like mosul, now in libya, you
have as i nut that column i sent to you, there's 13 countries where there are active elements and operational assets of the isis command structure operating and conducting terrorism. they pulled off 72 successful terror attacks around the world in the course of a few weeks. you look at it when the administration says oh it's contained? that's just totally false. >> that's a very interesting point to be sure. we keep hearing the president does not listen to his generals, he doesn't take advice from the front line. were you able to at least get in there and probe with general dunford about the relationship between the president and himself in terms of moving ahead in this fight? >> yeah. again, general dunford is not talking about major surge of thousands and thousands of troops. he's talking about a special operators who can get on the ground and advise those regional forces, that the british have been doing the same thing with the jordanians for some time.
and relying on the support, the unique kinds of things that america can do better than anyone else. that's air support, artillery support, and the kinds of people on the ground that give advice and conduct the kinds of operations like we saw that took out the number two in isis. those are the kinds of things that have to be done overseas to deny the idea that somebody can volunteer to join isis and get away with it. isis is not a sophisticated organization. what is sophisticated is their means of organization. signals intelligence, which we've relied on forever, no longer works. they have encryption and they have throw-away phones. we need good intelligence. i know there's a lot of complaints about what ray kelly did in new york city within the nypd, but the human collection element is important both overseas and here in the united states, and i would just add i only sound like i'm criticizing the secretary of defense, but i don't think we should have announced what we did in that raid. i think it tells the enemy more
than they need to know. go ahead. >> you bring this up and a good point to be made because you believe it's not wise to announce your successes and talk about strategy in public the way this administration has been doing. and this is something you point out in your terrific special. >> well, you know, the fact is making announcements about it confirm what is the enemy mite not have even known. when we take action and do the kinds of things like those special operate tors did the night before last, that makes a difference to the bad guys. telling them how we got there and how we did it, that doesn't help anything. telling them how we collected the information. this administration has been the source of all those leaks going back to 2011 when osama bin laden gets whacked. why the dickens did we have to announce to the world what we were doing before the rest of his people even knew? the same thing goes for this operation this week.
nothing comes from it either than black slapping. >> i urge our viewers to watch your special because it is riveting. thanks for join us. we want to make sure people know that just over an hour from now in war stories, fighting isis, fox news takes an in-depth look at the battle against the terror network. that's coming up at 5:00 p.m. eastern on the fox news channel. don't miss it. colonel north, always great to have you on the program. thanks for joining us. >> happy easter. >> you too. well, republican presidential kand its ramping up their attacks ten days out from the next primary. how will this talk about each other's challenges and the fact that they're going to let name-calling and there's a lot of fighting going on within the gop, how is that going to affect the polls? wisconsin? and new polling suggests which gop candidate has the best chance to take on hillary clinton in a hypothetical general election matchup. here's a hint -- it's not donald trump. heartburn!
no one burns on my watch! try alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. they work fast and don't taste chalky. mmm...amazing. i have heartburn. alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. enjoy the relief. i am benedict arnold, the infamous traitor. and i know a thing or two about trading. so i trade with e*trade, where true traders trade on a trademarked trade platform that has all the... get off the computer traitor! i won't. (cannon sound) i won't. some say "free the whales." for them, nothing else is acceptable. but nothing could be worse for the whales. most of the orcas at seaworld were born here. sending them into the wild wouldn't be noble. it could be fatal. when they freed keiko, the killer whale of movie fame, the effort was a failure and he perished. but we also understand that times have changed. today, people are concerned about the world's largest animals like never before.
so we too must change. that's why the orcas in our care will be the last generation at seaworld. there will be no more breeding. we're also phasing out orca theatrical shows. they'll continue to receive the highest standard of care available anywhere. and guests can come to see them simply being their majestic selves. inspiring the next generation of people to love them as you do.
welcome back, everybody. well, donald trump hold tight to his top stot-spot in the republican presidential race has new tensions build between him and senator ted cruz extending even to their families and wives. cruz condemning those attacks yesterday in wisconsin, the next state to hold a primary. >> i don't make a habit out of supporting people who attack my wife and attack my family. and donald trump is not going to be the republican nominee. >> let's get some political insights from larry sabato, director for the center for politics at the university of virginia. welcome. good to have you on the program. it's really getting down and dirty there with the republicans at this point. and all of this playing out in full view of the media, of course, and in the public. how do you think it will impact the race going forward in
wisconsin, for example, the fact it's gotten so dirty and negative and yet we're also hearing so much about the establishment's efforts to take down trump? >> you're absolutely right. it is even nastier than these races usually are. raising a question about whether trump could support cruz or cruz could support trump depending on which one becomes the nominee. now, for wisconsin, it may, may be having an impact with the followers of each man in that it's generating anger and therefore higher voter turnout. that's one possibility. i do think, though, that it's damaging their image. this is not a good debate to be having. there are bigger, more important issues they should be focusing on obviously than the kind of personal attacks we've seen in the last week or so. >> what about the efforts of behind the scenes within the gop establishment, this effort
anyone but trump and the fact that they're going to do everything they can to stop mr. trump and you've got strange bed fl lfellows at the moment. you have establishment types backing ted cruz, something you thought you'd never see, except we're seeing it now, because the stakes are so high and it's an all or nothing fight at this point. >> that's right. you have to make a choice. for some in the establishment it's probably a choice between the devil and the deep blue sea. but they're making the choice by and large they have gone with cruz rather than trump, although there are some exceptions. look, this is turning in a way that the leadership of the republican party cannot be happy with. they have got to find a way to get this party back together. when they get to continue veengs in cleveland in july. it's going to be awfully difficult to do that.
maybe it's a failure of imagination on my part but, you know, if trump is nominated it seems to me there are a heck of a lot, millions of republicans who can't vote for him, and if cruz is nominated it seems to me that there are millions of trump supporters who can't vote for him. i don't know how you win a november election that way. >> maybe it's going to get down to seeing in the end, really, which candidate they believe can beat hillary clinton if she is indeed going to be the expected nominee. we have a new poll for fox news that if the election were held today, put up on the screen, it looks like cruz would actually be the one to beat hillary clint clinton. are you surprised by that? excuse me. john kasich, then cruz. are you surprised by that? >> no. i think kasich all along has been the one most likely to beat hillary clinton and he's ahead of her in the polling averagings. i know this poll shows cruz beating clinton, but if you look at the whole group of recent
polls, clinton is ahead of cruz four to five points, but she is ahead of trump 10 or 11 points. so if you can judge by polls taken seven to eight mos in advance of the election, and uma, remember, they can't predict an election taken the day before an election. >> there you go. >> we've seen that during the primaries. so i don't know how much credence we give to them, but if you want to judge the election that way you certainly can. it's your privilege as a citizen. >> as for john kasich at this point, the fact that he's staying in, the fact he still believes that he has a pathway to the white house is something that is irritating a lot of republicans right now who would like to see him out of the race so that it can really become a two-person race at this point. >> the cruz campaign believes strongly that if kasich stays in, it simply benefits donald trump and enables him to win on the first ballot. i'll it will you, uma, the trump campaign -- i'm sure they're
foeshgsing on this -- they must know that they have to win on the first ballot because if they do not because of the maneuverings in the states in appointing delegates, it's already clear that trump's support is going to decline perhaps substantially on the second ballot. so it's probably first ballot victory for donald trump or no victory for donald trump. >> all right, larry. good to have you on the program. thanks for joining us with your insights. i know you're watching closely as we all are. >> thanks, uma. the rolling stones delivering a historic dose of satisfaction. we're going to tell you where the legendary band rocked it out big time. don't let dust and allergies get between you and life's beautiful moments.

we are back. the rolling stones rolling in havana. playing a free concert in cuba, the biggest show to ever rock the island, attracting more than 500,000 fans. the stones' first show in the island nation since they started touring in 1962, the year of the cuban missile crisis. fidel castro actually banned rock music but recently perhaps
the u.s./skew queue ban relations helping break that sound barrier. we asked if the killing of is isis' number two man and plans on increasing troop levels make you feel more confident? one tweet, no, we must engage the enemy and annihilate them. sending troops to iraq with no clear mission isn't the answer. barbara writes, looks like more is happening than we know about. better than i thought but still not enough to give me much confidence. chuck adds, absolutely, that is exactly the kind of response needed. my thanks to all of you who weighed in. we have a lot of tweets and i appreciate the response. that's a wrap for me. i hope wherever you are, wherever you happen to be, make it a great day and a great holiday weekend. see you next time.

america's election headquarters. big day on tap for the democratic candidates. voters gathering in three straights out west for the presidential caucuses today. hello, everyone. i'm clay shaw. >> i'm julie banderas. great to have you here on this sat. what a beautiful day to spend indoors. today's continue coming up for sanders turned in impressive victories in idaho and utah showing strength in western states with small minority operations where mrs. clinton was expected to dominate. and here is what is at stake today. alaska, hawaii, and today's big prize, washington state far
total of 142 delegates. kristin fisher is live in seattle where the precincts have closed. he's the ournout been where you are? >> reporter: the precinct captain believes the turnout was higher than in 2008. if that's true, it would be a new record for washington state. it would also bode very well for bernie sanders. he typically does well when the turnout is high. caucuses are closed. we're expected to get the first results in in about an hour. earlier today the line outside of this precinct, it stretched for about two or three city blocks. most of the people seemed to be standard supporters and indeed once inside the precinct captain said they were going for sanders 2-1. >> because represents the people, and because he said the same thing for three years over and over and hasn't swayed back and forth depending on the
political climate. that's why. >> well, i think that she is the only person on both sides can actually get anything done with the hostile congress we have right now. i think she has the most experience of anybody. i think we're in incredibly dangerous times right now and she's the only one with the proven experience to do so. >> reporter: clinton's campaign has been downplaying expectations, even concede that sanders could easily win all three states today -- washington, alaska, and hawaii. hawaii is really the biggest wild card. if a state is going to go for clinton, that's probably the state she'll win. hawaii is the biggest wild card, but the biggest delegate prize right here in washington state, 101 delegates are up for grabs. julie? >> so if sanders does well today, as expected, is he closer to the nomination or is that still kind of impossibility.
>> reporter: it's not an impossibility but it is a long shot. if sanders wants to catch up to clinton in terms of delegate, he has to start by winning right here in washington state. seattle, it really is sanders' country. last night about 15,000 people turned out to hear him speak at safeco field, where the mariners play. even if he wins washington mathematically she'll still well behind. the next state he might be able to gain some ground is in wisconsin, which is why sanders is already there. in fact, later tonight, he will be trying to attack another rally in madison, wisconsin. so he's already focused his attention there. but if he wants to catch up to clinton, it's got to start right here in washington. again, those first results should be coming in in about an hour from now. >> we will wait for them. thank you. a "fox news alert" for you. a major development in the
terror investigation in brusz welles the capture of a new prospect, faycal cheffou. they consider him -- they say they consider him a freelance journalist. there is no confirmation, though, if cheffou is that man that you see at the airport before those horrible bombing attacks. if he was that third bomber. but belgian media reports he was identified as that man in white suspected of running from the brussels airport right after his two alleged accomplices blew themselves up there. mike tobin is live in central brussels with the latest. what do we know about this guy, cheffou? >> reporter: well, eric, this is one of the guys picked up in that flurry of police activity on thursday night. faycal cheffou, the word the local media uses, he is a self-declared journalist. he posted some stuff on the web. he didn't have an extensive career as a journalist. the prosecutor's office is only identifying him as faycal c, but faycal c is charged with participating in a terrorist organization, terrorist murder,
and tempted terrorist murder. local media has widely reported he is that mysterious third bomber in the light coat off to the right side of the shot. the third bomb is said to be the largest. it did not go off. as i mentioned, there was a frenzy of police activity over the last three days. nine people have been picked up in belgium. an additional two people have been charged with participating in the activities of a terrorist organization. >> meanwhile the gruesome process of trying to identify the victims continues. what can you el us about that process? >> reporter: sadly one victim has been identified as the former ambassador to the united states in belgium, 72 year old. heed gone to the airport with his wife. the last thing he did on this earth was to shield his wife from the blast. she survived the blast. there were 31 people killed in the three of them were bombers. 24 very identified. 11 of them are foreigners.
eric? >> so tragic. mike, thank you. the pentagon is pushing for extra troops in iraq to help iraqi forces as they ramp up infrastructures to push into isis strongholds. this as strikes have taken out the isis finance minister as well as other senior leaders including the number two for isis. we have the story from washington. >> reporter: u.s. military officials tell fox news after weeks of practice this operation went just as planned and even looked like something out of a hollywood movie. early thursday morning, he was riding on an isolated road in eastern syria when an elite team of u.s. special forces swooped in on helicopters and surrounded the vehicle. he was considered next in line to take over as the leader of isis and was given the option to surrender but instead started shooting and within seconds he and those he was traveling with were killed. >> the removal of this isil
leader will hamper the organization's ability to conduct operations both inside and outside of iraq and syria. >> reporter: ash carter said friday he was the third isis leader taken out by u.s. forces this month including omar the chechen, isis' minister of war. >> leaders can be replaced. however, these leader vbs around far long time. they're senior and experienced so eliminating them is an important objective and achiefs an important result. >> reporter: though both carter and general joe dunford were quick to say the war against isis is far from being over. >> the momentum is in our favor. there are lot of reasons for us to be optimistic about the next several months but by no means would i say we're about to break the back of isil or is the fight over. >> reporter: dunford said while
no official decision vbs made, both he and carter believe the u.s. will be sending additional forces to iraq in the next few weeks, adding to the 3,700 troops already there on the ground. julie? >> garrett tenney reporting from washington. frightening new cell phone video showing the moments during and after a suicide attack at the soccer stadium south of baghdad. that is the horror. the radical islamic terrorists of isis claiming yes, they were behind this deadly attack. it killed at least 33 people and injured nearly 100 others. that attack happening about the end of an amateur soccer game at that stadium and the crowd so tragically was full of young people. man american airlines pilot take spoon custody this morning after showing up allegedly drunk. he was detained at the detroit
metropolitan airport after he apparently failed a breathalyzer test. the pilot's philadelphia-bound flight was canceled. american airlines has been working to rebook passengers onto other planes. the faa, meantime, is investigating. spring is here but some sections will see colder than average temperatures for the early part of april. senior meteorologist janice dean in the fox weather center looking at your easter weekend forecast, decked out in a wonderful easter yellow. >> someone mentioned this is my peeps yellow jacket today. >> oh, pick up some peeps. >> just in time for easter indeed. we had some springtime snow earlier this week, cooler than average temperatures as eric mentioned across the west. 29 in denver, 32 in rapid city. we have a cold front on the move and that could bring us some severe weather for easter sunday. but look at the snowfall totals that we saw earlier this week. record breaking snow across
portions of colorado, iowa, nebraska, south dakota, so in some cases winter is not over just yet. and we still have some snow falling across the colorado rockies in towards new mexico, with winter weather advisories in place. another 1 to 2 feet of snow on the horizon as this next storm system moves in from the northwest. spring steam skiers are loving it. we have this storm system moving in as well as a front that will bring potential for hail, damaging winds, isolated tornadoes for tomorrow for easter across the tennessee and ohio river valley, as well as the mississippi river valley, and we could see some flooding for parts of the gulf coast states and florida on sunday into monday. so we'll watch for that. let's look at your forecast precipitation over the next couple days, several inches of heavy rain all the way south towards central florida. and then we're going to look for the potential of severe weather
tomorrow, again, that yellow shaded area here, we could see all the ingredients come together for hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes. keep that in mind. and there's your sunday forecast. there's our peter cotton tail right there. watching the potential for some heavy rain across the gulf coast. that severe weather threat as well looking good for much of the west. again, you'll see the northwest with unsettled weather, and that front is going to move in into early next week. for the northeast and the mid-atlantic, not too bad. could see some hit-or-miss showers along the coastal areas. but otherwise looking pretty good. caucuses going on in washington state. the next storm moves in tonight into tomorrow. so far so good but for the weekend, again, that next storm system moving in. i know julie loves the snow. if you love the springtime snow, you have to head out west. although maybe in your condition, just eat some chocolate. >> i'm eating plenty. i don't need to add peeps and
chocolate. thank you. >> eating for two. >> or five. i don't know how many at this point. i feel like i may have a few more in there. >> you look beautiful. >> i'm sure there's only one. according to my doctor. >> you look fantastic. >> thanks so much. i miss skiing. i will say that. isis showing no signs of slowing down. people in europe break up terrorist cells in the wake of the brussels terror attacks. and the pentagon is pushing to ramp up the u.s. presence in iraq. so where is all of this heed? retired major general bob scales will join me with his take. plus, house speaker paul ryan taking center stage as the gop race for the white house turns to his home state of wisconsin. his role in this bruising campaign and what it means for the future of the republican party. 80% of women say a healthy lifestyle is a priority. but up to 90% fall short in getting key nutrients

time for a quick check of the headlines. police searching for a suspect in texas after an argument escalated to a shooting outside a houston mall. seven or eight shots were fired but no one was hurt. the suspects drove off in several vehicles. in downtown minneapolis, hundreds of people gathering at a rally calling for the

welcome, you two. tammy, bas ill, great to see you. tammy, speaker ryan has to walk a tight rope. >> he does. he starts to focus on his own job, which is managing the house of representatives. it's not his job to way in and deal with the shenanigans going on with the presidential race. he's also going to have a very big job starting in january of 2017 when the republicans generally, the moderates, won't be liking who the president is because it will be either donald trump or ted cruz. he'll have to make sure there's unity so that we can actually have a conservative revolution that needs to happen. that's his job and he's not worrying about that right now. >> you said come january, that's brilliant, some of the republicans will have someone they don't like, trump, cruz, or hillary clinton. >> they'll like hillary. they're fine with hillary. >> hillary can work across the aisle. i don't know about these other folks running on the republican side. but that said, i actually would disagree slightly from tammy.
i think paul ryan should focus on who the nominee will be. that will set the tone for the legislation he'll have to put on the floor next year. i think he needs to weigh in. >> he addressed it a little bit. take a listen to what he said about the race. >> i work political discourse. both the kind that we see on tv and the kind that we experience among each other. it did not used to be this bad and it doesn't have to be this way. i want to talk about what politics can be, what our country can be, about what our founders envisioned it would be. >> all right, tammy. you're making a face. >> he sounds like he's going right after donald trump with that. >> this is the man who wanted -- i guess his biggest accomplishment so far as speaker of the house is giving obama everything he wanted when it
came to the so-called program and the illegal aliens. john boehner passed the largest tax hike in american his tri moment we gave them control of the house. of course they want there to be a kumbaya and let's hug it out. the reasonitis happening now is because we've given them the benefit of the doubt up until now. it has failed. they have failed. the sovereign will take over nape don't like it. too bad. >> you know, let me say this, and i'm not an apologist for paul ryan. let me say this. after the 2012 presidential elections, the republican party did an autopsy where they said we're going to be a better party, we're going to reach out across the aisle, encourage minorities to become members of the party. it's not happening. it did happen. if paul ryan is the only one saying let's stick to the things we talkeded about, why not someone else? >> i saw democrats do this when they were about to lose. let's hug.
we need compromise and love and unity! >> because those are bad things? >> when you're in charge it's that the republicans are terrorists. and now suddenly we need hugging. >> i don't think anyone ever said that. >> well, barack obama, the leader of your party, certainly has compared republicans to terrorists. when we talk about a lack of unity, you can go back to nancy pelosi and barack obama and hillary clinton and all of the rancor that has been established. >> or the majority of the leader of the united states senate saying barack obama will be a one-term president. where's the unity in that? that was less than a year into his job. >> it ain't going to be a kumbaya in james de villepin, wisconsin, on tuesday. donald trump right in speaker ryan's backyard. going to to his backyard. he could take over the fence. >> oh, yeah. he's a stalker now. wisconsin will be interesting. scott walker will have to make an announcement.
he's been koy. i like governor walker but failed as a candidate. he need to endorse. he needs to endorse -- >> what if he doesn't? he's leaving the door open. said there could be an open convention. speck someone who's not running now. >> god forbid should the voters have a say. i think it will hurt his brand. he needs to step up. >> what do you think he does? i think he'll endorse ted cruz and i think ted cruz takes wisconsin. >> interesting. he may very well endorse ted cruz but scott walker, you know, this is a guy who's been anti-labor. it's actually the kind of rhetoric that i think republican voters are rebelled against because donald trump is talking about blue-collar jobs, bringing jobs back, and those are the kinds of things, believe it or not, that organized labor loves to auk about too, but scott walker is not guy that stands up for them. >> we have one prediction for cruz -- >> i'm only batting about 600 this season. take it as you will. >> who do you think will take wisconsin? >> i think donald trump. i think donald trump will. >> we'll take this tape and play
it back. basil and tammy, thanks. >> thanks, eric. >> julie? tune in to fox news channel at the top of the hour as we take an in-depth look at the battle against ter rop. >> on december 2nd, 2015, terror came to san bernardino during a holiday party for 80 people at the inland regional center. >> about 11:00, there were two gunmen that burst through the doors of the conference center and opened fire on the people that were in that room. the gunmen in this case were using semiautomatic assault rifle, ar-15 assault rifle-stipe weapons. there was an immediate police response. the first police unit was there within four minutes of the 911 call. the suspects had escaped before the first units had arrived. [ sirens ] 14 people were killed. 22 people were wounded. >> before their escape, the two shooters left behind an explosive device on the conference room table. >> it was essentially a pipe bomb device that was attached to
a remote control. at the end of the day, it didn't go off. >> was the device substantial enough it would have done considerable damage? >> it definitely would have done some damage inside that room and probably would have caused some pretty significant injuries. >> catch "war stories: fighting isis" at 5:00 p.m. eastern here on fox news channel. after the recent attacks, they're ramping up the efforts to try to beat isis. u.s. taking down at least two top isis leaders. would bit enough? now we understand there are plans to send more u.s. troops to iraq. what that could mean in the fight against the radical islamic terrorists.

isis leaders are being taken down but the threat from the terror army remains very real. isis claiming it struck yet again just days after the bombings in brussels, this time killing dozens at soccer stadium in iraq. but u.s. anti-terror efforts are gaining traction. isis' second in command killed during a u.s. raid in syria this week. and the pentagon now pushing to ramp up the number of u.s. troops in iraq and increase support for the country's ground battle against isis. joining us now is major general bob scales, retired from the u.s. army, and a fox news military analyst. thank you very much. >> hi, julie. >> as we learn of isis killing 41 people at a soccer game in iraq, the pentagon now plans to ramp up our troops' count in iraq, can we believe both potus and french president hollande when they say isis is being eliminated? >> oh, i think it's being --
it's getting really hard now, julie. the successful raid that was conducted yesterday, it took weeks of work, hundreds if not thousands of man-hours, a lot of very dangerous, classified, clandestine intelligence, rifling through terabytes of recently captured information, hundreds of hours of play time. so the return on investment is as you've seen recently is getting smaller and smaller. and the problem is frankly, julie, that jsoc, the joint special operations command, the guys that do delta, the seals, and the rangers, are beginning to run out of altitude, out of manpower, they're getting tired at the very time as you just heard secretary carter saying, well, we're going to increase the number of troops we have in iraq and syria. it's really getting to the point of diminishing returns, and the question is where do we get this
additional manpower. >> let's talk strategy going into thursday's raid in syria that killed isis' number two, the elite special operations forces that carried out the assault. they arrived in helicopters with drones flying above tracking the islamic state's second in command. his vehicle was surrounded as he was given the option to surrender, he began firing instead. >> right. >> this all happened in a matter of seconds, apparently. >> right. >> a senior military source has told fox he made a bad choice. what's your take on how all this went down? >> well, i talked to a friend of mine in jsoc yesterday, and he told me that this was probably the most perfectly executed direct action that they've had in probably two years, literally not a hole in anything that belonged to us. the whole operation took less than 25 minutes. the key to it as we'll find out in the days ahead was the quality of intelligence that they've been getting from killed and captured isis members done by raids, going back as much as
a year ago. this was on an isolated road in eastern syria. there were three guys in the car. the only disappointment that i've heard from my sources is they wanted to catch at least one of these three guys alive to, you know, further exploit intelligence from him. unfortunately, they all died in a burst of gunfire. >> you have some exclusive information, i understand, regarding the recent successful raid in syria, which actually harms our fight against isis. what is it? >> well, i think the problem is just i guess the word i'd use is overcommitment, julie. it just takes so much manpower. by the way, as our viewers know, the amount of manpower available from these elite forces and extremely finite. you can't grow it quickly. now you have an administration faced with sort of a hobbsian choice. do i just increment liz in a trip as we've been doing so far or go big? if i go big, i have to bring in
conventional forces, soldiers and marines. if i do that, the big argument about mission creep and of course the famous old song "boots on the ground" becomes more and more of a political rather than a military problem. so we're in a nexus right now, yule julie, a turning point where the administration has to make a choice between going big and getting it over with or continue with attrition. >> i know a lot of people don't like that term boots on the ground. it's gotten a bad name. it doesn't seem to be received well. what do your sources tell you about where the administration stands right now in its success against isis and the pressure to carry out more of these successful missions like they did on thursday, particularly on the ground? >> yeah. so here's the thing. the fear the administration is that isis is now going to go bigger and bigger. you've heard some of this in an earlier presentation on fox the big worry is weapons of mass destruction. isis getting their hands on a dirty bomb or god forbid a nuclear weapon and trying for
some catastrophic event which they believe to be the only way to save their caliphate, to sort of take down the west with a really, really big event. so time is not on our side. the united states has to break the back of isis by either taking down mosul or taking down the syrian city of raqqah before these guys get their hands on something that would really cause something. >> how would they get their hands on a dirty bomb and the materials to make one? and would they need assistance from somewhere else? i mean, this can't just be made in some person's basement or in some cave. you need a lot of money and you need the materials. and to me i'm thinking other countries somehow getting their access to this sort of weaponry into the wrong hands. i mean, who would they go to to get help to actually develop something like this? >> pakistan. maybe north korea. north korea will sell anything for foreign reserves.
and there are couple of other nefarious nonstate actors who with effort can get their hands on materials. look, it will object is not necessarily to get a bomb. what you have to get is some sort of radioactive material, a dirty bomb, if you will. it doesn't have to be bomb-grade plume plutonium. it could be products from medical research for pete's sake. you know, if you can just imagine for a moment an explosive device tied to highly radioactive material detonated in washington, d.c., or new york city or london or god forbid any of those major cities, it could have a catastrophic effect on our civilization. you don't need a bomb to have a wmd event. >> this just highlights the seriousness when it comes to north korea and its defiance and constantly, you know, firing off these rockets, these missiles into the sea of japan. >> yeah. >> the defiance there is scary. and they are looking to harm anyone who tries to stop them.
and if it means building an alliance with isis, do you think it would really come down to that? >> yeah, you know, it's interesting, most of my sources say iran is not the problem. the problem are unstable states like north korea who feed on foreign exchange that they get from selling missile technology, nuclear technology, or the ability to build fissile material. bad guys in the world view north korea as sort of their nuclear factory, if you will, and kim jong-un would do anything to get the capital reserves to keep his elite in power. they're the great fear among people in the west who think that they may well be the ones to supply those materials. >> another huge issue that will go into this next presidential election. a president that's going to be able to handle kim jong-un. thank you very much, major general bob scales. always a pleasure to have you. >> thank you, julie. a filmmaker has examined the power of prayer. his documentary features the story of a 20-year-old man who
says he was miraculously heal fld from a long-term health condition with just one prayer. is there medical evidence to corroborate testimonies like that? fox news religion correspondent lauren green has this inspiring story. >> did a supernatural being do something? that's what makes something a miracle. it's not can you come up with a scientific explanation. it's did god actually do something in this person's life? >> filmmaker elijah stevens has raised thousands tru a kickstarter campaign to fund his documentary investigating whether medical miracles do actually ham. >> i wanted to know if god really did this stuff or if it's a fairy tale that con artists are trying to sway the public to believe in order to earn money. >> he's also set up a website so people who think they've experienced miracles can contact him. one case is a young man named chris gunlderson from the portland, oregon, area. from birth he suffered from
chronic pseudoobstruction syndrome, which paralyzed his intestines so he could never digest food. he would get water and nutrients into his body from tubes. when he was 16 years old, chris says his parents brought him to a church service where a man prayed over him. >> halfway through the prayer i felt a shock from my right shoulder and down through my chest into my stomach and it felt like god was jump-starting my stomach back up. and right then and there it was healed. >> chris' doctors were baffled. his condition had no cure. stevens has enlisted the help of christian-based nonprofit's global medical researcher institute fielding claims like chris' and bringing in positions from all faiths to determine whether sudden healing after prayer actually took place or there's a scientific explanation. >> what i did is get experts in the particular field to evaluate the case and let them decide whether or not it meets the bar
or not for a miraculous healing. >> stevens is about halfway through the project with experts vetting cases and medical records. he hopes to show the film within a year in churches and maybe even theaters. in new york, lauren green, fox news. >> lauren, thank you. chris' story, wow, amazing. scientists are still trying to link a devastating condition found in babies to the mosquito-born zika virus. meanwhile, the cdc is working to prevent the spread of the virus in women before they get pregnant. so how its latest recommendation could impact couples hoping to have children. what're you? i probably got that question 3 to 4 times a week. i'd always get asked if i was asian or moroccan or something else. so i jumped at the chance to take the dna test through ancestry. and my results ended up being african, european and asian. it just confirmed what i guess people had seen in me all my life. i do feel like ancestry helped give me a sense of identity.

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 you 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, 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. so come try the largest variety of lobster dishes of the year, like lobster lover's dream or new dueling lobster tails.
it's a party on every plate, and you're invited. so come in while it lasts. the krrds krrds is taking a preemptive step to protect women from the zika virus before they become pregnant. >> it's possibly linked to a birth defect. the agency is asking couples to wait up to eight weeks after visiting country where is zika
infection is high before they conceive. nina radcliffe, anesthesiologist. doctor, there's a new case of zika in nevada. we have 273 in the u.s. how worried should we be? >> there's a lot of questions that we're having. i want to say we have to have a healthy, balanced concern for this. we need to remain vigilant and keep following what the cdc is talk about. we need to follow the research, but we should not be unduly alarmed at this time. >> we need to also remind people that the zika-borne virus, it's been transmitted seex julily, but the mosquito itself is not. >> correct. at this time we live in a different situation than these latin-american countries where there are traveled a advisories. many mosquitoes live in people's houses with them, bite them all day long. it's not the same ingredient. until now, the transmission that has occurred in the u.s. has been through sexual transmission. spring has sprung. we may see an increase in transmission from mosquitoes and there's been different types of precautions taken in florida.
there was a state of emergency. they increased funding to try to eradicate mosquitoes. time will tell how this proceeds. i want to say again, no need for undue alarm at this time. the u.s. are the leaders when it comes to disease prevention and transmission. >> these cases happen to be from people who were in central america or maybe the caribbean, case in nevada, the fellow was in guatemala. so when you say that we're the leader, i mean, still what are the chances of mosquitoes, those type that can carry zika actually coming here and going up through the northeast? >> i want to say that spring has sprung, mosquitoes will be present. they will increase transmission. we will continue to see cases, whether we see an outbreak is a different story. again, there are different ingredients. what the recent cds cd guidelines have done is they want to prevent this sexual transmission, so they're compounding on previous guidelines that were only for pregnant people or partners for pregnant people. what they said is if you have traveled to these countries and you have symptoms or if you have a diagnosis of zika to abstain
from sexual transmission for men for up to six months. you don't want to have unprotected sex. reason it's so long is we don't know how long it can last in semen. reports are two months. they wanted an overabundance of caution and multiplied it by three. >> what are the symptoms? what is it? >> that's what's interesting. most symptoms are mild. it's a fever, red eyes, a headache. but for 80% of people have no symptoms whatsoever. that's why up until now until this association with microcephaly, where we have small brain, we've known about zika for 40 or 50 years but haven't really been looking at it. >> it's never going to become an epidemic the way it is in brazil. let's be clear. you're talking about very poor communities with no screens, no air conditioning. also, as far as these mosquitoes traveling to the united states, these mosquitos can only survive and travel from 400 meters. >> exactly. >> i don't want to scare people into thinking it could become an
ep dem nick this country. it is not deadly. it causes temporarily paralysis and can cause the birth defect in women who travel to these countries. at this point, the number of pregnant women here in the united states only are -- they only contracted this disease because they were traveling in those countries. if you're living in these places like florida, you know, do you need to worry? >> microcephaly for the unborn child is an ominous threat and that's what we want to be concerned about. of course the guion beret where your own immune system attacks your nervous system where you can't walk, you have to be hospitalized. this can be very concerning. after six months, 20% of people do not walk properly. if you are a couple trying to conceive or thinking about pregnancy or are pregnant, speak to your health care provider so you can get a good understanding. everybody's situation is very different. pregnancy and conceiving is a very personal decision. but some of these latin-american countries have actually advised
people not to get pregnant for two years. >> what if you're pregnant and traveling to florida? should you be worried? >> you always want to take precaution, be careful about mosquito bites, wear insect repellent. >> dr. nina radcliffe, thank you very much. >> thank you so much. a quiet neighborhood was rocked with a massive explosion that went right through a house, taking it from its foundation. we'll have the terrifying details straight ahead. ♪song: "that's life" ♪song: "that's life" ♪song: "that's life" ♪song: "that's life"♪ that's life. you diet. you exercise. and if you still need help lowering your blood sugar... ...this is jardiance. along with diet and exercise, jardiance works around the clock

the terror threat. for a look beyonded headlines, here is liz trotta's weekly commentary. >> almost 50 years have passed since a handful of fanatics attacked the world trade center and the pentagon. in that time we've learned much about radical islam and little about blocking the world wide reach of its warriors. weakness, political correctness is everywhere, from the smallest school at home, to the nations of europe. do anything but confront an aggressor. for example, did you know that we live in a country where national public radio is now offering its political reporters a 90-minute training course in hostile environments awareness?
seems a few of them have been roughed up at trump rallies. that's abusing to many. but a green light to the so-called progressive bureaucracy that run political parties and the pentagon. finding imagined victims in our own ranks is the national pastime. facing the enemy isn't an option. the instant to -- instinct to retreat, to dodge rules the heart of our foreign policy, a generation of high-minded talkers have blanked out the idea to act decisively and smartly. traditional hallmarks of the american doctrine. our president's view of the world is a textbook for how to run from a fight. even as the graves in paris and bus sell are still fresh, there is a disconnect between our long, disjointed war and the determined onslaught of allah's hoards from the east. we can't figure out a way to stop the murder.
this isn't iwo jima or casson. this is a crusade to crush the west. mr. obama refuses to catch its immediacy and so he can tango the night away in argentina, while terrorists run amuck in europe. incredibly, he tells us the islamic state is, quote, not an exist tension threat. tell that to the casualties of 15 years since the towers fell. europe weakened by political correctness and socialist theory stands unprepared in this fight. so america mislead and fiercely engage the enemy. yes, the enemy, a word written out of the english lexicon, lest it offend. the feckless pentagon caught a case of nerves when a young marine was killed by isis fire last week on a new fire base in northern iraq.
a grim reminder of the price we're paying not to win the fight. let's hear it for the young men of fire base bell and all the living and dead of this war that has no end. they deserve at the very least a commander and a country that has their back. fire investigators in columbus, ohio, sifting through the wreckage in one neighborhood after an apparent gas leak triggered a massive explosion and fire last night, destroying this home and damaging a few others nearby. new owners recently closed on the mortgage, but hadn't moved in. no one was injured. we will be right back. stay with us.
