3:03 am
killing him at point blank range. people running for their lives. ahmed one arm has emerged as the master mind. the death toll now at 44. and this is a awful story. a 13-year-old american girl living in israel stabbed to death in her bed. a 17-year-old palestinian man broke into her home in the west bank. he was later killed by security guards. hundreds of people attended her funeral. pictures of her mother are just heartbreaking. she was seen sobbing over her daughter. and developing overnight, an accident on the set of a tv show in downtown l.a. two workers injured, one in critical condition. after 3500 pounds of equipment comes crashing down on them. the set was for "good girls

3:05 am
meeting with loretta lynch and bill clinton on the tarmac a few days ago? now they're demanding that the inspector general investigates that meeting and find out why this happened and what they talked about. >> they cited a number of statutes. this doesn't pass the smell test here and it's outrageous abuse of public trust. the story we're being told is they ran into each other at the airport and they basically talked about their grandchildren and their travels and other patronizing patently false explanations like that. now we're hearing from a reporter on the scene. knxv television anchor christopher sign was there. he told o'reilly about it. listen to this. >> she as a matter of fact landed on time. he and his entourage was running late. they made the decision, the
3:06 am
former president's team, they wait for her to land. she arrives. some people step off of her plane. the former president steps into her plane. they then speak for 30 minutes privately. the fbi there on the tarmac instructing everybody around no photos, no pictures, no cell phones. the attorney general, as a matter of fact, she said they talked about him playing golf. at this very moment as i'm talking to you, i've reached out to several sources, those with intimate knowledge of his movemen movements. not one so far has said that he played golf. we don't know that he played golf. >> they're telling us this was an accidental meet being, one of happenstance. they're lying. >> telling reporters, no photographs. you can't take any pictures of this. just look away. >> who would obey? since when does the attorney general get to use the fbi to
3:07 am

3:08 am
people don't care. listen. >> i think people have kind of a comical and -- understanding of how involved she is in this. this investigation is being led by career investigators that have -- many of them are probably republican. they don't see the world like you and i, bill, through a political lens. with a high profile investigation like this, you better be sure if loretta lynch doesn't take the investigation -- >> they have everything. >> it gives fire but american people from a political standpoint don't care. they care about the bank accounts, national security. >> they care about it. >> they don't. >> they do. they care about who's running for president and their government being honest. >> he says americans don't care. we care about working hard. we care about our paychecks. we care about putting our kids
3:09 am
through college. we care about this government, the government that a lot of people have fought for and lost their lives for. we do care about who's going to be president of the united states. >> you know who doesn't care, mark hannah. spewing nonsense. the attorney general makes a decision whether or not to indict. >> on the heels of an election, shouldn't we have this information about hillary clinton's e-mail server? shouldn't this be made public? no. they're seeking a 27 month delay for us to have access. >> can you believe that? >> 27 months. you do the math. does that put us beyond the election? >> i think it might. >> that is insane because this election we have, what, six more months to go until november. she'll be -- if she does win, she will be president 22 months into her presidency, almost two years into her presidency is when they want these e-mails releas released, these are e-mails
3:10 am
about the foundation. it might not surprise you. i think americans do care, i think it's par for the course. the e-mail scandal, benghazi, now this. this is the latest poll that says does the description fit the candidate? look at hillary clinton's trustworthiness. only 30% feel that she is trustworthy. i wonder what do the other 70%? 70% don't feel she's trustworthy. >> if you compare those numbers to the question of who are you going to vote for, an awful lot of people who believe hillary clinton is dishonest are voting for her anyway. >> how is that? >> you'd have to ask them. this is pretty remarkable. including this, are you proud of your country today. now 50%. >> half of america. >> just a few short years ago, 69%. that's plummeted. >> i wonder why if you have the country's leaders constantly telling the population this country is embarrassing.
3:11 am
its history is abominable. it's an unbroken chain of sins against various people. that's a lie, by the way. we have a noble country. the people who run the country don't believe that. after a while the population starts to agree with them. >> you go on the apology tours. >> we want to know, are you proud to be an american? #proudamerican. send us your pictures. show us pictures of your family on the beach, things that your family loves to do together that makes you proud to be an mesh. of course, we want to remember our veterans on the 4th of july. if you are a veteran or have a lot more over seas, we want to see pictures. friends @fox news.com. isis declaring open season on us, so a former navy s.e.a.l. is declaring open season on them. he's released permits.

at bp, safety is never being satisfied. ...one of many pieces in my i havlife.hma... 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 with breo. 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. 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 control 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 mybreo.com. isis has open season as we

know for killing americans. now one ex-navy s.e.a.l. is selling his own hunting permits for $10 each to take out isis. you can buy yours, too. the stickers say that they expire when we, quote, defeat this evil. missouri republican gubernatorial eric greiten is a former navy s.e.a.l. he's selling those licenses for his campaign. thank you for serving our country and thank you for being with us. >> good morning, thank you for being here. >> good morning. why do you want to be governor of missouri? >> i'm running for governor of missouri. the only candidate who's never run for office. i've never been involved in politics before, but i'm running because our government is broken. i'm sure so many of your viewers have seen what happened in missouri. they saw what happened in ferguson. they saw the crisis at the university of missouri. we need to have strong leaders stand up, and that's what i'm going to do right here in
3:17 am
missouri. >> i bet you're making your opponents really mad. they've been working their entire lives to get that governorship and you're running against them including the lieutenant governor who's been in politics for a long time. what do you hear in reaction against them? >> we're having tremendous reaction from people around the state, ainsley, because they know we're taking on the political class. you're right, my opponents combined have been in over 20 different elections. we know if they were going to make a difference they would have done so already. people want a strong conservative outsider. they like the idea of supporting a navy s.e.a.l., entrepreneur, concerned husband and father who's willing to fight against the political establishment. >> you were on the campaign trail with robin neil when you discussed the isis hunting permit. >> we were joined by s.e.a.l.
3:18 am
team 6 operator, rob o'neill. honored to have him come to missouri to campaign with us. we wanted to draw attention both to our message, to our service, and also we wanted to invite people to join our mission and call attention also to this really important issue. we are in a fight against radical islamic terrorism and it's clearly not just a fight overseas, it's a fight that we have to recognize and defeat here at home. we've got to take this fight to the radical islamist terrorists. they give your campaign $10 and they get this hunting license. i want to play your campaign ad and get your reaction. >> sure. >> eric greiten, for too long it's been run by high paid lobbyists and special interests. while they get rich, missourians get hurt. i'll take dead aim at politics
3:19 am
as usual. >> a lot of people talking about gun laws. what's the reaction from folks in your community when you put this ad out firing a semi-automatic weapon? >> we've had a tremendous reaction, tremendous support, ainsley, from people around the state of missouri. they know -- we have a commander in chief and so many people who are confused about this. they know that we can defeat freedom hating terrorists but we're not going to defeat them by taking away the guns of law abiding americans. there's so much confusion over this. we have a president of the united states who won't identify radical islamic terrorism. right here in missouri, our own "st. louis post dispatch" says omar mateen was nothing more than a confused man. he wasn't a confused man, he was an evil man, he needed to be defeated. we know we can defeat freedom hating terrorists and i as a candidate for governor, a navy
3:20 am

welcome back. some quick headlines now for you. 15 cities have to raise the minimum wage today, july 1st. the move expected to put a big burden on businesses. many saying this could threaten jobs and force employers to cut hours. it's an online shopping world. walmart taking aim at amazon prime ahead of the latest prime day sale coming up in two weeks by offering its own online shopping discounts plus a free 30 day trial of its shipping pass which is unlimited two-day shipping. it's a scavenger hunt. jack daniels celebrating 150 years in the business. they're hiding that i recall signature barrels all around the world giving hints over facebook of where different people can find them filled with jack daniels items, of course. if you don't see me this weekend i'll be on a whisky hunt. >> thanks, clayton. good luck. a university in new mexico facing dwindling enrollment is
3:25 am
turning south of the board jrde. they're offering mexican students less than half the discount. francisco hernandez, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> if i wanted to send one of my four kids to this state university i will pay twice the amount a mexican citizen will pay. this university is subsidized by american taxpayers. why is this fair? >> it's not that it's unfair. airlines do it all the time with a first class seat whenever they're going to fly empty, they'll sell them for half price. if you have empty school seats if the college doesn't have high enrollment, then what's the down side? free money for the university. >> not free money for the university. the university is subsidized by taxpayers to the tune of $60,000 per degree granted. >> except for out of state
3:26 am
tuition. >> why not offer the same discount to my children? i'm paying in part for that $60,000 subsidy. why would you give preference to somebody who is not from this country? >> there's nothing wrong with that. cut the price. that's the first class concept of airlines. >> that's not what's happening. >> you don't have to go to that university. >> but i do have to pay for the university as a u.s. taxpayer and i am paying for it and so are you. >> if an airline said we're only giving discounted seats to people from mexico and if it was american airlines presumably there would be an outcry. do you see the point? it's a simple point. >> not if they fill the seats in mexico to come up to the united states. it's not unfair and it's out of state tuition. it is not subsidizing, it's the out of state tuition pays more than its share. usually a hugely
3:27 am
disproportionate share. >> the college is subsidized by u.s. taxpayers. regardless of who goes there. >> correct. >> every student gets about -- the university for every student gets 60 grand a year. they are giving discounts to people from another country, a country that has not paid anything into the university. that is insane and it's discriminatory against american citizens. what is the justification for that? >> well, it's not discriminatory because -- >> they're giving discounts. >> we don't have to go there if we don't like it. it's that simple but out of state tuition pays for the subsidy for the in state students. >> okay. >> we've got to make that differentiation. we're clouding it that it's getting the subsidies from the united states. >> just to be clear, out of state tuition is over $10,000 for american citizens who have been paying for the university for many years and it's less than $4,000, about $3300 for mexican citizens? why not give the same price to
3:28 am
out of state americans as you're giving to out of country mexicans? why not do that? >> well, one, because they're obviously having trouble with having u.s. students going to that university or they wouldn't have dwindling enrollment. they're trying to increase the enrollment and they're not having luck getting american citizens go there. >> if you lower the price americans would go. might be worth thinking about it. mr. hernandez, think about tnchts we could talk about what could happen. it just hasn't happened. >> good to see you this morning. airports around the country on high alert in wake of the istanbul travel. could it change the way you travel? we're live with a report next. and watch your backs. another purge is on the way. a series about a yearly day of total lawlessness is going political for election year. michael tamaro takes us behind the scenes on that next. first, happy birthday to liz tyler.

and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. i can't believe i did it. i quit smoking. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. we are back with a fox news alert. these are the faces, the smiling faces of terror. >> yeah, these brand-new chilling pictures appear to show the killer smiling right before killing 44 people in istanbul. >> it's grotesque. anna quinn tells us how this could change how you travel in the u.s. >> reporter: good morning to you and good morning to everyone at home.
3:33 am
the debate has been renewed about whether the security perimeter should be pushed back further in the wake of what happened in istanbul and brussels because those terror attacks happened outside of the security checkpoints. critics say that's simply pushing out the target. terrorists will just have a new target and a new place, that will be in the parking lots or where the cars would be cuing up. i want to mention that the anxiety for some people has been growing here in the wake of those attacks. the port authority said they had already stepped up their counter terrorism efforts after orlando terror attacks. they had their high visibilities patrols, tactical gear and tactical weapons just in case something may happen. the tsa has said they're deploying what they call viper teams at airport across the country, that includes explosives experts and air marshals. here's homeland security security jey johnson. >> we encourage the public to
3:34 am
celebrate the holidays, the 4th of july holiday, continue to go to public events. continue to be aware and vigilant. public awareness and public vigilance can and does make a difference in terms of detecting possible terrorist plots, terrorist activity. now the 4th of july weekend is typically the most traveled weekend of the summer anyway, but aaa says because of the warm weather, lower gas prices and lower hotel prices that they are expecting record numbers, 43 million americans are expected to be traveling. 85% will be going by road by 3.3 million americans will be traveling through the airports. the busiest airports you want to take a look at those, first up is atlanta, then los angeles, chicago, new york city, and dallas. and ainsley, tucker, clayton, gas is at $2.31 a gall. that's 47 cents cheaper. you can probably expect more congestion on the rode waste as
3:35 am
you head out there to see your family and celebrate independence day. >> cheaper congestion. >> sounds like there's some congestion there, right? a horn. >> thank you so much. >> someone's honking. let's check in with heather childress. >> good morning to you. we're going to talk about labels right now. ted cruz is clashing with the department of homeland security standing up to the assault of civil liberties. the former gop presidential candidate grilling second jey johnson about his lack of investigation into recent claims that words like jihad and islam were scrubbed from terror reports. >> was that testimony accurate? >> i have no idea. >> would it concern you if it was accurate? >> senator, i find this whole debate to be very interesting. >> i would note the title of the hearing on tuesday was willful blindness and your testimony to this full committee now is that you have no idea and apparently have no intention of finding out. >> cruz accusing johnson of

ignoring the facts that may have helped prevent attacks in orlando and san bernardino. the defense department, meantime, now ending a ban on openly transgender troops. this means that transgender troops no longer have to see doctors outside of the military medical system and once the plan is fully in place, military benefits will pay for gender reassignment surgery. the new change taking effect next year. meantime, republican house armed services chairman is calling the move an example of the obama administration, quote, prioritizing politics over policy. and a former navy s.e.a.l. is the first driver killed in a self-driving car accident. joshua brown died in may when his tesla model s slammed into a tractor-trailer on a florida highway. the auto pilot system now under investigation for not activating its brakes. >> he went so fast through my trailer i didn't see him. >> and just one month earlier brown actually credited the auto

3:38 am
>> the helmet will keep everything intact. maria molina will have the forecast. >> good morning. tracking several areas of thunderstorms across the nation and we want to kick it off starting off with what we're expecting today because across portions of the northeast, mid-atlantic and even in the central plains you could be seeing some storms that could bring some isolated severe weather. that will be a concern. not too much of a concern in terms of severe weather across the southwestern u.s. today. you could be seeing some storms. that's something else to keep an eye on. as we head into tomorrow, severe storms could continue to be possible especially across portions of the central plains. because we're expecting several rounds of wet weather out there across places like kansas and missouri, 4 to 6 inches of rainfall, the concern for flash flooding will be in place. let's skip ahead to the forecast that everyone wants to know, which is what it's going to look like out there on 4th of july. many areas are expecting hot temperatures in the southern plains. you're talking triple digit heat

>> and it occurred to me you were very clint eastwoodian. >> really? >> there's something very '70s western. >> that is by design. that means we have done our job. that's by design. we took movies like "out law josie wales," "escape from new york," "death wish" that were over the top and crazy and we fashioned these movies after that, after those '70s kind of action genre thrillers. >> big weekend at the box office. bfg is opening up as well as tarzan. both were made for 150 to $180 million. this movie was made for $10 million. it's grossing $30 million. >> is it good? >> ah -- >> that's the best review i've heard all week.

we are glad to have you here on our plaza today. >> i am so excited to be here this morning because we've got the 4th of july coming up and i know everybody loves to celebrate the way all-americans love to celebrate, with a good old-fashioned barbecue. this morning we're just going to spill the beans on how to have a great summer party. >> perfect. what do you recommend when it comes to barbecue sauces? i know you're famous for that. >> this summer we are going to be doing a lot of promotions at famous dave's. we've got some great ways to really jump start a barbecue party because one of the things that makes a great tasting rack of ribs is a great tasting barbecue sauce. >> absolutely. that's the secret, right? >> well, a lot of times folks take the sauce and they slather it on the ribs but what i like to do is i like to kick it up by adding some different fun stuff. >> i hear your barbecue sauce has 80 proof alcohol in it. >> well, you know, as a matter of fact --
3:47 am
>> if you want to take and add a little whisky there. >> tell me when. >> i think that's good right there. >> that's a lot. >> and then we've got some little jalapenos if you want to take and add that spice to the sauce. >> okay. >> and then also from time to time i like to add different types of fruit, whether it's ab pri cots like we're doing this morning or maybe watermelon or apples. >> okay. >> a lot of times fruit really adds that extra punch. then let's finish it off with a little -- >> kaluah. >> how much? >> i think that's good right there. >> i never would have thought that. how did you come up with this? >> over the years one of the things about making great tasting barbecue -- >> oh, it smells delicious. >> you just started trying different things? >> yes. >> this is what your family said tasted the best? >> here's one of the other secrets, too, is that when we're
3:48 am
grilling up the ribs, a lot of times folks will take the ribs right off the grill or out of the smoker and then they just cover it with barbecue sauce. >> i love this thing. it's like a mop. >> it is. >> a mop. why don't you go ahead and mop her down there. >> that is great. where do you buy this? >> one of the things that -- what happens here instead of just having the barbecue sauce go on the ribs, what we're doing is we're caramelizing that sauce on the ribs and what happens, it gives it a nice -- nice taste. you can only get when the flames jump up. they flame the ribs, caramelize the sauce. >> how often do you do this? do you continuously marinade? >> marinade and slather. >> slather it. >> this summer we have got a whisky sauce for our bread pudding. i'm telling you what, come on over to famous dave's. we'll set you up with some ribs
3:49 am
to go, famous dave's bred pudding and on the side so you can have the best barbecue this summer. >> you are just the best. thank you so much for being here every friday during our summer concert series. we love you and we thank you for that. >> hey, we're going to be smoking up a storm for america. >> all right. we love that. happy 4th of july. i'm going to toss it inside to clayton. >> you are. thank you so much. ainsley. >> serve me some ribs and tucker, too. the feds are required by law to release the 911 call from the orlando terror attacks. so what happens when we ask? >> why won't be they release the mateen phone call? why can't we get an explanation about that. >> we're not -- >> doesn't the public have a right to know why their money is being spent like that? >> the journal list who dared to ask that question joins us live next hour. his business was robbed twice and now he's arming himself and giving discounts to people who pack heat. he put out a sign and that sign

3:54 am
lot of discomfort with our employees, and pretty slowed foot traffic that night, and so we decided to figure out a way to increase our foot traffic at night, and we really were trying to figure out how to get more people in the store, and after tossing it around a while decided that maybe offering a discount to law enforcement officers would maybe get a few more people in the store and make the people that are robbing the stores think about who might be in there. then we decided to carry it over to people with permits to carry and we thought that would maybe expand the amount of people that would come into the store at night, and basically it was just to increase the foot traffic in our store, and we put this 8.5 x 11 sign up in our window, since then everything took off and it's been crazy since then. >> what happened? has the foot traffic increased significantly? >> yeah. it's like -- well, we had a gentleman come through or store about three days after we put
3:55 am
the sign up and he took a picture of it and asked if he could put it on facebook. we said no problem. he put it on facebook that morning, must have been around 7:00 in the morning. by 9:00, 10:00 in the morning we had radio stations, newspapers calling, television stations calling, and the thing went viral, and you know, i'm not on facebook so i wasn't really aware of it until we started getting the calls in, and so -- all the notoriety. >> a place for a lot of negativity, too. people jumping in, what are you doing, saying, you're crazy? >> no. we really haven't heard any backlash. people from across the country really supporting the idea. we didn't think it would take off like this. just hoping to generate more people at night so that my employees would feel better with more people coming and going from the store, but it's really been a positive experience for us, and a lot of people, we've been getting support from across the country.
3:56 am
>> what about law enforcement? what did they say about it? they're on that sign you put up? >> we have quite a few law enforcement people not on dut they come. and people they come through town make it a point to come to our station to get a tank full of gas and tell us they support it. really positive for us. >> wow. el were, frank, thanks so much for joining us this weekend. i'm sure you're going to be busy on the fourth of july weekend, people hitting the road, too. frank, have a great fourth of july. appreciate you join ug. >> you, too. >> you bet. the feds are required by law to release the 911 calls from the orlando terror attacks. so what happened when he asked this question? >> why won't they release the mateen phone call? why can't we get an explanation about that? >> the journalist who dared to ask that question xwoins us live next hour. what makes you proud to be an american? we're asking stewart varney that question, because he became a

pounds of equipment comes crashing down right on them. not clear what caused the accident. the show was for the show "good girls revolt" starring jim belushi. is this a trick question? u.s. immigration services tweeting out a trivia question but didn't have the correct answer to pick. the agency asking in spanish, what date the declaration of independence was, and gave three choices. june 29, 1779, july 4, 1779 or july 4, 1778. not one of those is correct. the correct answer, of course, hopefully you know, july 4, 1776. the agency says that it was a typo. yep, those are your look at headlines. come on. we all know that. >> a typo, and it was wrong. >> exactly. >> i love how people still chose the wrong dates. can't pick the right one. i'll pick the wrong one anyway. >> unbelievable. this morning we're talking about loretta lynch and bill clinton. a new headache for hillary
4:05 am
clinton, because judicial watch is demanding that the department of justice's inspector general investigate the meeting those two individuals had on their private planes on the tarmac out in phoenix. >> getting more details this morning. belie the explanation we've gotten. they say they met on the tarmac in phoenix accidentally. private planes hanned to be next to each other and stopped by to chat about grandchildren and golf and chatter. a reporter on the scene from a television station in phoenix says, that's not what happened at all. here the a report last night on "o'reilly." >> he and his entourage were running late. they make the decision, the former president's team, they wait for her to land. she arrives. some people step off her plane. the former president steps into her plane. they speak for 30 minutes privately. the fbi there on the tarmac

asked of registered voters, are you proud of the country today. look at that. yes, 50%. back in 2011, 69%. >> maybe people are saying, half the people saying, i'm not proud of maybe the direction of the country? i think everyone, or the majority of americans, should be proud to be here. i think maybe the 50% that aren't happy, it's because they aren't happy with the direction. wouldn't you say? >> that's right. but among people who chose to become americans, who moved here for the opportunity, bought into the american way of life and idea behind america and became citizens, most are pretty happy. exhibit a, stewart barney. >> see the smile? >> that's an amazing story. >> yes. i chose this. okay? i could have not chosen it, but i deliberately chose to become an american citizen. >> why did you decide to do that? >> despite what you may have read and seen in the liberal establishment media, america is actually a very warm, generous and welcoming society. can you just think about this for a second? here i am.
4:09 am
i've got an obvious foreign accent and i'm on national television telling you, the locals, you, the natives, what's going on in your country. do you think if i was in germany speaking german with an american accent, i could get on the national news? there is no way on god's green earth i would be accepted in overseas places the way i'm accepted in the united states. >> so warmly and generously. >> when you hear the president suggest that america's middle class is hostile to people who are different what do you say to that? >> utter nonsense. i have personally felt the warm embrace of america's middle class, american people in general. when i became an american citizen, it was last november. okay? i was in a room with 80 odd other people. there i am. big smile. okay? 80 other people from all around the world. 33 different countries. we all raised our hand and swore allegiance to the united of america. there wasn't a dry eye in the place. every single one of those people wanted tothere. chose to be there.
4:10 am
>> talk about the middle class getting squeezed, and a lot of business owners, small business owners, scared today. july 1st, min mumm wage hike goes into effect in 15 states across the country. small businesses, talked to an owner who owns five subway restaurants. he said i'm going to have to shut down a couple of my restaurants, shut them down only bricking about 7% return on investment and will have to shut it down. this is what's happening. >> it's a tragedy. in 15 city, 5 different states, the new higher minimum wage goes into effect today, as july the 1st. the results of this will not be good. first of all, fewer jobs. have you been into a lot of restaurants recently? you order on a tablet. you don't use wait staff any longer. entry level positions wiped out. go to, say $15 an hour. that's $30,000 a year for standard workweek. entry level positions disappear. we will never know the names of those people who will not get a
4:11 am
job at an entry level position because of these higher minimum wages and basically it's politicians trying to wager higher rates. vote for me and you'll get a higher wage rate. >> devil's advocate. doesn't that weed out the bad people and keep got in here? >> i think wages should be set by the marketplace. what is the supply of labor at this price? if you have an adequate supply of labor that that price, wages stay stactic. we have that at that entry level position. a shortage of people will be to work at $7 or $8, wages go up. that's the way the market works and supposed to work. when you start sledge slating. a politician says, vote for me, look what i will give you that is not good news for the economy or all individuals. >> care about wages but flood the market with low-end labor. >> 11 million illegals? that's a lot of labor to compete

and i quit smoking with i'm chantix. i had a lot of doubts going in. i was a smoker. hands down, it was, that's who i was. after one week of chantix, i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it.
4:16 am
if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. life as a non-smoker is a whole lot of fun. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. in the state of florida, law enforce smnt required by law to release the 911 calls from the orlando terror attack. what happens when someone asks to hear those calls. watch this. >> i'm sorry. we're not going to address any questions relating to the orlando shooting today. >> trying to get answers for the
4:17 am
public. a lot of public money spent on this lawsuit. we already know the information is out there. why won't they release the mateen phone call? why can't we get an explanation about that? >> we're not -- >> doesn't the public have a right to know why their money's being spent like that, sir? >> asking that question, investigative producer sean laven from orlando along with former fbi special investigators founder of the jenkins group. welcome to you both. appreciate it. explain the context there. you asked a pretty simple question, why won't you release this tape and if neglect they just ignored you and walked away. >> yeah, tucker. i've been working here at news 6 for a long time, asking tough questions a long time and have never seen a federal official yanked out of the room like that when asking a simple question, why won't they release the audioof omar mateen in has club? what are they afraid of letting us hear? we don't understand the reason
4:18 am
they won't let us hear that when they already released a transcript and we know what he said. >> a >> a redacted transcript. what could possibly be the reason behind refusing to release this? >> it's still an ongoing, pending, criminal investigation that the fbi is the lead agency. look, it's the second worst terror attack on u.s. soil since our existens, and under the freedom of information act, section 7, paragraph a, there is an exemption for ongoing crim-in-law investigations. the florida sunshine law has that same exemption status for those, for, exemptions for the crim na invessel gatien. >> i get it. stop you there. i've seen a lot of abuses by the ongoing investigation. how would the investigation be compromiseed by releasing these tapes, specifically? >> here you go, tucker.
4:19 am
this has always been fbi policy. where we're getting murky and where the optics have gotten off is because loretta lynch went ahead and said on june 19th on the sunday talk shows, hey, we're going to release the 911 calls. when they did the redaction it made it look bad. from an fbi standpoint i'd like to delineate, fbi slrs department of justice and loretta lynch. fbi has always gone this route. it's a slippery slope. once it's the 911 and then the negotiation talks, it just continues and the fbi needs to have that investigation be up impeded. >> the letter the fbi sent to the orlando police department. quoting, to the extend your agency is obligated to respond to a request under florida -- we request you withhold the records. so, sean, why didn't they just say that to you? why -- i mean, the guy basically
4:20 am
gave you the finger and walked away. why not explain why this is pertinent and needs to be withheld from the public. according to our attorneys that letter is incorrect, a violation of the law and we've dealt with this during the george zimmerman case. the special prosecutor said don't release the records, can't do that and the courts in florida already ruled, another agency can't tell the local police not to release public records. if the fbi is going to defy florida law, that's scary. if they don't want florida law to be followed they need to change the law. they can't tell police, break the law. don't release the record. the federal law, that's different. might have xemps there. in florida, time and time again, records released. they don't want it held in state court and yuanked it out to federal court. they don't want the judges to rule. >> gentlemen, thanks for joining us. appreciate it. >> thanks.

4:45 am
there, go with that, but why is she trying to cover or get mixed into this altogether? i don't know. >> do you folks agree with this man? okay. >> tell me your name. >> hi. i'm robbi. >> from -- >> bloomington, illinois. >> what do you think about all this? >> the timing is very questionable and should always take the high ground and when there's ever a question step away and let someone else take over. >> how about you? tell me your name. >> john. >> where you from? >> from new york. >> what do you think? >> i believe the fix is in. and i have a problem with this. i don't believe the attorney general's story at all. i think it comes from higher than the attorney general. i think it comes right from the top and the fact now that the fbi even says they're going to delay their recommendation until amp the elections is very troubling. most americans would have already been in jail. >> this is a big, big question. on sean hannity's question and got so much e-mail because i took a little different approach. dow jon
4:46 am
attorney general lynch is one of the great prosecutors, put people in jail for 30 years. i think she got put in a bad spot but a lot of americans are saying this looks really bad and i think she's responding, i'm going to step out. folks like james saying, well, it's really not enough. >> it's not a coincidence she's stepping away? you think she had to do this? >> she did. calm the political fury. in this country we need, confidence,in our justice syste. if we don't have confidence in the attorney general we say, god, who can we have confidence in? in a real big pickle. seems to me that we're going to have a decision real soon. the other piece of it is, was it a coincidence yesterday that the department of justice and the department of state said for two years we will not produce the e-mails of hillary clinton's top four aides. >> we need 27 more moss. you know what that means? she'll be in office almost two years before we see the e-mails. >> some are connecting the dots.
4:47 am
the president pleats with attorney general lynch on the plane, next day, government says we can't turn over these thousands of e-mails. does that sound strange? >> hmm. so is this fair? anyone else want to comment? >> what do you say. good morning. >> it's not fair. >> why? >> the clintons are like teflon. nothing touches them. it's disgusting. >> feel like they're above the law? >> they are way above the law. i am so tired of it. just beyond? >> who are you voting for? >> for trump. >> why? >> because trump is a businessman. trump -- we need trump. trump is america. we need -- bloomberg took over new york. when new york was pretty bad. and bloomberg did a good job, was a businessman. we need a businessman to take over. trump. >> your name? >> joann. >> thank you all for being here. hand it to you, tucker, in the studio. >> thanks, ainsley. coming up, he spent five years at the p.o.w. in north vietnam after his plane was shot down. coming up next, colonel lee ellis sharing his message with

now retired air force colonel lee ellis is passing on what he knows to the next generation. next book "engage with honor: building courageous accountability" hitting stores this september. pea o pre-order it now. colonel, nice to see you this morning. >> good morning. good to be back with you. >> great to have you back here on the show. those five years obviously changed your life. what happened to you, and what did you witness during those years that compelled you these many years later to write this book? >> well, i was a young fighter pilot in vietnam. my airplane was shot down over enemy territory. i was captured immediately, taken to hanoi and spent 5 1/2 years in the hanoi hilton and surrounding camps. the thing i learned being the youngest guy and junior ranking guy, i served under some fantastic leaders and i saw character, courage and commitment. so committed to doing their
4:53 am
duty, being good americans and living and leading honorably and under the most difficult circumstances where they were tortured and beaten, and the most often, and the most horribly, and yet they continued to lead and stuck with the principles that they believed in about honor, and so our whole message of mission, vision and values was boiled down into return with honor. we wanted desperately to go home, but with honor. the example that i saw and that made me want to be that kind of leader and to realize the power of that kind of a leader to build a culture for success. >> unbelievable. under those circumstances, still committed to the training you were given. character, courage, commitment. >> yes. >> takes through these three cs you write about in the book. take us through character. >> well, character. we all think and say we have good character. ask an audience, everybody would raise they're hand saying, yes, i have good character. that's our goal.
4:54 am
the reality is, that's not easy. it's very difficult, because every day as a business person, as a schoolteacher, whatever, we face many difficult decisions. we look at the school superintendent in chicago that's going to jail for financial bribery or whatever you want to call it, kickbacks. we had schoolteachers in atlanta. we have business people, everywhere, we see issues with volkswagen and character issues. we all have to work to guard our character, but the real thing we need is the courage to carry us through, because when our doubts and fears take over, our character starts to waver. >> and character is your second c. look, we're all ruled by fear. the things we make from mistakes traces back to fear. >> they really do. i think courage is, actually, almost a decision, based upon your principles and values and your passion. you have to reach back and say, who am i? what do i stand for? what are the principles i
4:55 am
believe in? and now, how can i engage them? you know, sometimes i'll be making a decision and i'll keep putting it off. lee, why are you putting it off? what are you afraid of? and sit down, think it through. there is something holding me back. it's fear and doubt. okay. you've got to come up with a plan and go execute it to do the right thing. you don't want to do a knee-jerk, just go and do the right thing in a proper, respectful way. and when you do that, you always come out ahead, but you have to have that willingness to move forward into your fear. >> and one of the things you do is talk to a lot of the younger generation. one of the things maybe they got a bad rap about, millennials, start something, stop something. third c. talking to young people, how do you talk about commitment? >> staying the course. success in history, one of the key things is passion, the other is commitment and staying with it. just don't quit. you can't be someone who won't
4:56 am
quit. they keep coming at you and coming at you. i like to think of that in my own mind. i had a picture recently of a cogwheel that keeps turning and turning, and if you keep turning long enough you'll be successful. think about an olympic athlete getting in the pool and keep working, working, whether you're a pianist, world-class pianist, diver, swimmer, business person, it takes those thousands of hours. you have to stay with it. especially with your character. you just have to remind yourself who you are, what you stand for and keep going. we have an honor code, seven articles that we provide our clients and it's free online, that seven things about, tells truth, keep your promises, be accountable, be responsible. just some simple things, but they're very hard to do and you just have to keep reminding yourself, stay the course. >> i love it. colonel lee ellis. appreciate you join us on this fourth of july weekend.

thank you for your service to this country. >> thank you. and thank you to all of our men and women who engaged with honor and doing it today and providing us freedom. freedom is so important. i know what it's like to not have freedom, and i'll tell you, i enjoy it every day and thank our people in uniform who help provide that. i have asthma...

...one 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 with breo. 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. 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.
5:00 am

they did that today. the move expected to put a big burden on businesses. many saying this could threaten jobs, and force employers to cut hours. we talked with stewart barney, host of barney and company about this earlier. >> entry-level positions are going to be wiped out. you go to, say, $15 an hour, that's $30,000 a year for standard work. entry-level positions disappear. >> saying that wages could be set by the marketplace, or should be set by the marketplace, not politicians. those are a look at your headlines. back to you. >> thank you. speaking of politicians this morning. >> yeah. >> all the discussion this morning on what is going to happen with loretta lynch? will she recuse herself after she met on that tarmac buy bill clinton at sky harbor airport in phoenix. new details about all of this this morning, though. >> kind of disrecuse herself. we'll talk about that. first, we want to play for you the guy who broke the story. he's a local news reporter, and
5:06 am
he is saying, we don't know all the details. remember, they wanted you to believe they just happened to be on the tarmac at the same time. said, oh, bill clinton the here. go over, say hello. that doesn't seem to be the case. take a listen to what he said last night on fox. >> she, as a matter of fact, landed on time. he and his entourage was running late according to my sources. they then make the decision, they meaning the former president's team, make the decision, wait for her to land. she arrives. people step off plane. the former president steps into her plane. they speak 30 minutes privately. the fbi there on the tarmac instructing everybody around no photos. no pictures. no cell phones. the attorney general, as a matter of fact, said she talked about him playing golf. at this very moment as i'm talking to you, i've reached out to several sources with intimate knowledge of his movements because they work with the dignitaries when they come into phoenix. not one said he played golf. i'm not saying he didn't play golf, saying i have yet to
5:07 am
confirm that he played golf. >> immediate outrage from both sides, by the way, over this. clearly the former president trying to influence the outcome of the criminal investigation into his wife. even democrats saying this was a bad idea for him to meet with loretta lynch. the breaking news part of it, now the attorney general is saying this morning she will take whatever recommendation the fbi gives her whether or not to indict the former secretary of state and democratic nominee hillary clinton. so here's the bottom line. by trying to "help his wife" bill clinton has hurt her yet again. >> good point. >> not for the first time. >> right. >> he's ensured the fbi, probably the most independent branch of the obama administration is making this decision. bad news for hillary, good for america and bill clinton did it. >> historical context. general petraeus, when the fbi recommended indictment for david petraeus, the attorney general's office decided to, we're going to go it alone. do our own thing here. this case, turning over the reins to james comey, director
5:08 am
of the fbi. >> it's off her hands. >> right. >> i have to say, hats off to her for doing it. it's the right thing to do. she is essentially recusing herself from it. >> how would you like to be hillary this morning? all of a sudden no way the obama justice department will indict the democratic nominee. fair, but a sad, but we assumed it. it's corrupt. now it's up to director comey. i wouldn't want to be hillary this morning. >> and joining us this morning, your reaction, first of all, to this breaking news, loretta lynch turning over the reins to the fbi? >> bill clinton has to have known the impact if he got on that plane. i don't understand it but once again, as tucker said, it's like, sabotage, something about him that even though he says and works so hard for his wife on those key moments he seems to do her so much damage, and the fbi is absolutely accountable and responsible, and if loretta lynch really holds true to what she just said i have to take
5:09 am
back everything i've said on "fox & friends." i actually do believe, if this is true, she will be indicted. >> wow. >> how do we know that hillary clinton didn't send her husband on the plane and stopped there on the tarmac, he was late, she was waiting on him. how do we know this wasn't her idea? >> she knows better. too smart for this. too smart, too political, understands what conflict of interests look like. when you've got david axelrod, the president's chief political adviser saying how dumb this is, she knows better. she never would have done that. >> this is like the fifth time bill clinton has sabotaged his wife's political career. i'm not a shrink and not going to pretend to be one on television, but something's going on beneath the surface. no possibility this is accidental. come on? >> i've stid estudied this, pary profession and what my ph.d. is in. one has to wonder what's going on in bill clinton's mind right now and what's going on in hillary clinton's household
5:10 am
right now. >> we want to dive into the new ads. seeing them now, popping up all over the place. the latest clinton and trump ads. look at this first one here and get you to tell us about what we are seeing. take a look. a lot of people say they're not going to vote this november. because their candidate didn't win. well, i know other people who won'ting voting this year either. hillary as president -- no thanks. i served in benghazi. my friends didn't make it. they did their part. do yours. >> wow. powerful. >> that is powerful. >> it's powerful, but i want to point something out to you, that the people saying they're not voting because their candidate didn't win is targeted at republican voters with questions about donald trump and i have to wonder, we're already in july. why would you target them? why wouldn't you be going after independents and unaffiliated
5:11 am
voters? it says to me that the trump people still believe, those supporting him, still believe there are issues on their side of the aisle and they haven't moved over to those in the center. >> hmm. yeah. look at another ad. this is clinton on greater fathers ad. >> you know, you could see there was blood coming out of her ad. blood coming out of her -- wherever. >> do you like girls that are 5'1", come up to you, you know, where? a pretty picture. >> hmm. now, i want to be critical about that one, too. you really want the impact, show the person saying it. i get the idea they're playing with their daughter and how significant the comment is, but i'm sorry. in the work we've done for the last 25 years, ads that have the person, actually visualize them saying it, are much more powerful than those that try to be a little artsy with the message. >> huh. the message itself, that trump
5:12 am
is just too personally appalls to vote for, is that working? >> it's not working, if he's only four or five points behind. >> right. >> look, trump's got a challenge here. a higher negative than hillary clinton does. he also, we saw with brexit harks a path to the election. this guy actually can win, even with the comments he'd made. >> that's right. >> but he's going to have to be much more focused on policy and not just on personality. if he waurchts nts to get over finish line. >> are you seeing that more. >> yes. he's not on a teleprompter hurts. he's talking about issues people want to talk about. he is the megaphone for anger and much more effective being disciplined. i'm watching for his speech. that will be the most important speech of the campaign, his convention speech. if he hits that out of the park, he would kwell be the next president. >> see you there. frank, thanks. up next, democrats held a

i like it start your used car search at carfax.com democrats done after nearly 26-hour gun sit-in on the house floor, turns out just the start. this weekend democrats took this directly to the public including a sit-in this time in rhode island. democratic congressman from that state, and mayor of providence, one of the organizers who joins us now. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thanks for having me. >> what's so frustrating about this, this is of course, in immediate response to the orlando shooting, which really was the fault of government. mateen called to authorities multiple times and they didn't do anything about it. i said more than half my income
5:18 am
in hopes they protect me, you didn't and now are blaming me as a gun owner for america being dangerous. seems like a shifting of blame from the government from you to the rest of us ordinary law-abiding americans. can you see why that would be frustrating? >> first of all, i don't think anyone's blaming -- the point is we want to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them. you said in your opening i was coming on because i don't think people should have a gun. unless your entire viewing audience is on the terror list that's not true. two bill, university background checks and making sure people on the terror watch list can't buy a gun. overwhelmingly supported by the american people, common sense, having background checks for the wrong people not permitted to have a gun don't buy one and people do takerous to be on an airplane can't go into a gun store and bay gun. those are common sense a sposupd by 85% and more of the american
5:19 am
public. >> a lot more is going on. >> hold. . we're asking, bring those two bills to the floor. common sense. the american people support them. we went to the floor without demanding a vote on two bills. there are 200 bills. >> i watched the whole thing unfold. >> we want congress to respond to the demands of the american people who want action on those two bills. >> and neither one of those, you well know, would have prevented the shootings in orlando. >> that's not the point, tucker. >> what is the point? >> we can't pass a single bill that's going to stop all gun violence but pass a package of bills. >> i get it, congressman. okay. name one you were behind. the assault weapons ban of 2015. just last year. explain in pacific term bice an assault rifle is different from a semiautomatic deer rifle? that's the difference? >> of course, an assault rifle is designed to kill or discharge as many bullets as quickly as possible. they are weapons of war. designed for use on the combat
5:20 am
fields, and the reality is -- >> what's the difference? >> not a single one of the 25 deadliest mass shootings in the country occurred while the assault weapons ban was in place. >> you haven't answered my question. do you know the physical differences? why is -- >> of course. >> why is an ar-15 more dangerous -- >> barrel strap, a stock -- >> how is a barrel strap making it -- >> military characteristics taken together with the semiautomatic features. >> if i could ask, how does a barrel strap make a wep's moapo dangerous. >> describe what an assault rifle is, is included in the legislation. that worked. not a single one of the 25 deadliest -- >> banning weapons you don't understand -- sounds like that. >> no. i do understand. >> how's a barrel strap make a gun more dangerous? >> the definition of assault weapon is included in the statute that lists seven
5:21 am
military characteristics, a semiautomatic weapon or detachable magazine with one of those characteristics. that's the definition. >> that's time. you know we should continue this conversation and perhaps you can be more precise. >> i'm happy to come back. >> i'm sure you would. good to see you this morning, congressman.

5:33 am
as well as fbi investigators and director comey. >> ah. >> that means she is accepting their determination. she is not deferring the decision to them. she is not recusing herself which is something she should have done under rule 14 of the justice department ethics code. this woman is the chief law enforcement officer in the country, the only woman who can give access to the grand jury to the prosecutors. works for someone who already endorsed hillary clinton and is about to campaign with hillary clinton. the president has also said that state secrets are never in jeopardy as a result of hillary clinton's e-mail. what do you have here? all of the crumbs leading to the fact that hillary clinton will not be indicted. and the chutzpah of bill clinton going on her plane and of her allowing bill clinton on her plane when they have an obligation to avoid even the
5:34 am
appearance of impropriety. understand, guys, i was a d.a. did this 30 years. someone who was the spouse of a target in a criminal investigation said i want to see d.a. jeanine pirro, my body guards, my staff, would have stopped that person at the door. and i would have known enough to say, you know what? you may be a friend, and you may want to talk about your grandchild, radio it? but you're not coming on this plane. >> to be sure, i want to be sure of what you're saying. you're saying if the fbi were to recommend to the justice department indictment of hillary clinton under the standard that the attorney general just set down, she could still refuse to indict? >> look, this happens every day. prosecutors say to cops, fbi, the cops, loretta lynch, d.a. i say, look, looks like you have a prima facie case that might be good but i can't prove it beyond a reasonable doubt but will tell you my theory. the reason she will not be indicted is because her first witness as a defendant in a
5:35 am
criminal case is the president of the united states. why? because hillary clinton e-mailed president barack obama. he knew that she had a private e-mail server, that clinton e-mail.com and is complicit, and they will not allow a constitutional crisis where the president of the united states knew about the risking of security of the united states and that's why he's endorsed her, why he's said nothing's happened, and she threw a shot across the bow a couple weeks ago when she said, everyone knew about my e-mail situation. everyone in washington knew. translation, mr. president, this ain't happening, because you're my first witness. well, i'm a prosecutor, this is what i do. >> i totally missed that and am impressed. >> we missed what you were saying. reading the language of loretta lynch's statement. >> it's a charade, a dance.
5:36 am
it is prfrustrating, pulling thr hair out, what she did do, she unleashed, with this -- you know, somewhat ambiguous statement, she will further clarify in aspen in a few hours, she unleashed the fbi and basically said, you guys can criticize me, because i kind of said i'm going to accept your determination. they're going to come out of the woodwork now and go after her. >> we've been reading this, then, in reverse? >> yes. >> this is the first sign, then, we're not going to see an indictment handed down for hillary clinton? >> well, what she's saying is, look, we were honest. take us as your word. really? you're going to take hillary clinton, bill clinton at their word? what she's saying is, look, i am going to accept their determination of, oh, sure, she is. every cop who brings me a case i go, i'm going to accept your police report, but i decide whether or not i take it to a grand jury. >> you've been doing this 30 years. why did bill clinton meet with her on that tarmac and why were
5:37 am
we kept in the dark about it? >> the reason he did it, is because he could. the reason they it is because this is a guy. look, he flew around with jeffrey epstein the pedophile 26 times with all of these bimbos on the plane, and he thinks that, you know, he's free. but here's an issue -- will bill clinton be a potential target of the clinton foundation raising money from foreign governments while his wife is secretary of state? classic pay to play. and, you know, there's so many layers to this. it's disappointing. how's that? >> that's the summation? m >> mom, are you watching this? i'm a lady. it's disappointing. >> the great judge jeanine pirro. >> watch my show. saturday, 9:00. >> right here. >> let us know how you really feel. thank you. breaking right now, nearly 1,000 cooks, housekeepers,
