2:06 pm

2:11 pm
half the country in a deep freeze. let's take a look at erie, pennsylvania and all that snow. people are trying to dig out from five feet of snow that's fallen since christmas eve. adam klotz is in the extreme weather center named appropriately. adam: it's incredibly cold. other folks didn't get the snow, just dealing with the cold. we are looking at the northern plains. actual temperatures in the dakotas getting down to close to 20. if you add in the wind, you get the wind chill. it has been ferocious. negative 40 is what it feels like in fargo. these numbers will spread out a little bit. we talked about the snow. it's out in front of the coldest
2:12 pm
weather. we are seeing light snow showers stretching back inland. the bigger story does continue to be frigid temperatures. this is an hour by hou d hour forecast. some of the cold air does begin to settle and get closer to the coast. you are talking about new year's eve. negative 2 degrees. that's the forecasted wind chill for n city and lots of areas looking at stretching back into the plains. times squire will be a spot where you will be feeling it. brian mentioned the low temperatures around 10 degrees. but with the wind it will feel like below zero. it only gets colder as we head
2:13 pm
through the overnight hours. this chill will be sticking with us for the first couple of days into the new year. arthel: it will be january soon so i guess we can expect it. thanks, adam. tomorrow night here on the fox news channel you can watch the special live coverage. the programming starts 8:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. eastern time. dean cain will kick off the festivities. countdown to 2018 begins at 8:00 p.m. then kennedy and jesse are live from times square. it starts at 10:00 p.m. it could be one of the coldest new year's eves, but on the fox news channel it will be one of the warmest. bundle up and stay with us and you can be part of it, too. you can go to the hashtag fox
2:14 pm
news 2018. hopefully they will be warm tomorrow night. but having fun. arthel: iraq and afghanistan veterans spending a day out at sea. why one group believes fishing could help our nation's heroes get back on their feet. whether president trump and republicans can get democrats to help with next year's agenda. after a dvt blood clot...
2:15 pm
i sure had a lot on my mind. my 30-year marriage... 3-month old business... plus...what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk
2:16 pm
if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.
2:17 pm
2:18 pm
arthel: president trump looking ahead to his 2018 legislative agenda telling the "new york times" he's willing to reach across the aisle on rebuilding america's infrastructure and reaching an agreement on daca, but only if democrats meet a dede manned. the president saying we can do a great infrastructure plan through bipartisanship and we can .through immigration and daca. and we can do something that's terrific through bipartisanship. but i wouldn't do a daca plan without a wall. we see the drugs pouring into
2:19 pm
the country. we need a wall. arthel: is daca in exchange for a wall a none starter? >> it's difficult to see how democrats agree to the wall in the way president trump has presented that idea. i personally think what may happen is an increase or enhanced border security that will allow the president to claim he strengthened the border. but the idea of democrats backing a border wall in exchange for a daca fix. arthel: it may not be a full-blown wall. so maybe what you just note. perhaps there will be cooperation in terms of some sort of beefed up security at the border. so that said. where is the support and the bush pac? >> the support is from two
2:20 pm
places. democrats want a fix for daca. that's clear. a fix for the so-called dreamers is supported by a broad cross-section of the american public. people understand there is a moral difference between these people who may have been brought across the border when they were 3, 4, 5 years old. so there is wide trade support for this. but this is washington, congress is congress, lots of noble idea die in the swamp for a whole range of reasons. >> shouldn't the two issues be in the same bill? >> in the sense of daca and the wall, i think it is possible to separate them to some extent. but i think republicans sort of in the center of the party will want some for of at least strengthening of the bored if they are going to meet
2:21 pm
democratic demand on daca. there needs to be a compromise that allows both sides to claim victory. arthel: what might the final bill look like? >> i think there is a couple of things here. i think there will likely be some measure to enact the pretensions of daca. there could be increased security at the border and drones, increased funding, and i would assume the incentive on both sides is to get this through congress before march when the program lapses. arthel: your analysis is you think there could be some kind of compromise where they can save the dreamers and increase security there at the border. >> i think there can be
2:22 pm
theoretically. there are reasons for both sides to go for that. but one of the difficulties with that issue as with so many things in our politics, so many of the political incentives are to the extreme. the carrot and the stick is for extreme where politicians can get more fundraising and money or they face a primary challenge if they try to compromise. so that complicates everything. arthel: when we are talking about daca and border security, which lawmakers do you think would run the risk to buck up against either of those? >> i think there are republican house members in districts that were carried by hillary clinton last year. they would have an interest in saving the dreamers. democrats for their part could
2:23 pm
argue we believe in border security. we don't want a wall. but we believe in border security. that's a price worth paying to enshrine daca into law. arthel: you think it will get done before march. weep keel an eye on it. thanks for your analysis. eric: a non-profit group is taking veterans off dryland to open sea to help them cope with ptsd and the challenges they sometimes face in transitioning back into civilian life. phil keating has more off the coast of florida. reporter: for these combat veterans, this sound sure beats the sound of bullets.
2:24 pm
>> this is good therapy for any combat veteran suffering from ptsd. just being with people who have been through what you have been through. and you can talk about it. giving fellow combat vets who have seen and heard the worst of war and still dale with its impact out on the high seas to focus on fishing and camaraderie. >> i was separated from my wife. i just had a 6-month-old son born at the time. i hit rock bottom. starting this, i have a purpose in life. i'm surrounding myself with like-minded individuals, combat veterans who understand me. it has become almost a form of
2:25 pm
therapy. reporter: martinez says his day of deep sea fishing is surging in popularity and demand. as more combat vets hear about it and more patriotic owners donate their vessels. they want people to know ptsd isn't something to be afraid of and shouldn't be stigmatized. >> one thing about marines, we gravitate toward each other. reporter: for these combat vets it's about a positive attitude. tomorrow is a new day. days like this are great ones. off the palm beach county coastline, phil keating, fox news. arthel: massive demonstrations in the streets of iran as anti-government protesters clash with police and state-sponsored

[♪] arthel: thousands of demonstrators in the streets of iran marching in support of the
2:30 pm
country's supreme leader after days of anti-government protests at those angry at the country's failing economy. reporter: there have been protests and counter-protests today. the anti-government movement shows no sign of stopping despite the number of government supporters out on the streets. the protests have strung up in numerous towns and cities the last few days. they threw stones in conflicts with riot police. outside tehran university protesters were outnumbered by pro-government protesters. they carried flags and banners
2:31 pm
backing islam's supreme leader. these were annual pre-plans rallied planned to mark a sign of solidarity with the current leadership. but they coincided with this anti-government protest. this began as small demonstrations against the rising prices of basic food items. they turned political and violent. video on social media shows protesters clashing with police. at least 50 people were arrested but iran state police say they were released. while political protests may be unusual in iran, there is underlying anger about the economy. so there is a chance the demonstrations will continue. eric: the national council of
2:32 pm
resistance in iran is encouraged by the brazen protests in the street that shows anti-regime demonstrators ripping down an image of iran's supreme leader. >> i to peninsula khomeini -- the ayatollah khomeini. that defines is almost unheard of in iran and it could be growing. the opposition group tells fox news there have been demonstrations in at least 31 cities calling for death to khomeini and rouhani. how far can this go? rebecca, we haven't witnessed this type of anti-regime anger since 2009.
2:33 pm
does it possibly potentially threaten the power grip the mullahs have on that nation? >> there is great discontent among the iranian people. this has been brewing and it continues to pop up. but there is a pro-democracy movement that existed there. it's against the mullahs. this is a government that jails protesters. this is a government that has morality police that has thrown acrid in the face of women who don't cover their heads properly according to the drelings codes. they are tired of this regime that has used such an iron 50s with its people. eric: among them is the leader of the national resistance of iran. she gave a videotaped statement
2:34 pm
praising the brave actions of the demonstrate towards. here is part of her statement. >> if you could demand the overthrow of the ruling religious dictator smip. it is the right to topple this repressive regime and i emphasize regime change in iran is within reach. eric: she has been saying that for quite some time. does her message resonate? and can it resonate in the oval office? >> i think it does. i think the iranian people -- one of the smartest things the trump administration has done toys differentiate between the iranian people and the iranian regime. rouhani, the president of iran. obama officials try to perpetuate the myth that he's a
2:35 pm
moderate. he's not a moderate. they have tests missiles in violation of u.s. security council conditions. so the iranian people are tired of the isolation. they are tired of the oppressiveness of the iranian regime. what the trump administration can do is what the trump administration didn't. support the iranian people, support the democracy movement. don't fund the regime. isolate the regime. eric: why do you think the obama administration didn't do that? >> i think they believed they have could legitimize the iranian government and it might have the effect in the long term of moderating the government. that isn't the way it works. you don't reward regimes that repress their people and are
2:36 pm
anti-american and anti-israel. all iran did was legitimized the regime. so nowy what the trump administration needs to do is take a whtake a whotake a holis. eric: president trump had a stinging tweet. can you contrast this president's actions against the former president trump who sometimes if he didn't put the full weight behind the revolution they would have been toppled in 2009. >> we missed a major opportunity in 2009. he did worse than not say
2:37 pm
anything in the beginning. when he did speak he equivocated that it was up to iran to deal with the issue. he didn't condemn the iranian regime. what the obama administration wanted more than anything was to legitimize the regime. it didn't even ends the nuclear program. it nearly paused it. now it will continue the program. eric: do they cut these deals to preserve the nuclear deal at any cost? >> absolutely. it plays down, -- there was a report about the obama administration ending an anti-hezbollah drug cartel. it was look for opportunities to please the iranians. and so we missed a major opportunity with this pro-democracy movement. this isn't the united states imposing our whim or desires on the regime.
2:38 pm
the sovereign nations, the people get to decide. the green revolution started? 2009 after these fraudulent elections. the iranian people want to govern themselves and want self-determination. >> do you think if the president stakes stronger measures of some sort, can that change? she calls on the international community to support the iranian people uprising for freedom in iran. what should the president do to make that happen? >> you can demonstrate just open and unapologetic moral support to the green ref delusion to the people who are there. you do what we can to make sure we condemn the iranian regime and further isolate and levy further sanctions and drive this wedge between those who want
2:39 pm
self-determination and freedom. and the iranian regime that the president poses a direct threat to our people and our allies. eric: you can strike while the iron is hot. rebecca, thanks for joining us this afternoon. arthel: severe weather making headlines in 2017. hurricanes taking lives and destroying homes in texas, puerto rico and the u.s. virgin islands. but that is not all. janice dean takes a look back. reporter: from deadly hurricanes to devastating wildfires. 2017 was marked by a host of extreme weather events. january started off deadly in parts of the southeast. 8 some confirmed tornadoes across georgia claiming the lives of 20 people and causing $1.3 billion in damage. in february, northern california

you are telling us that you have some keys to living to be 110 years old? what's the secret? what do we have to do to get there. >> i wish i could claim them as my own, but they are not. a researcher and his colleagues looked at some of the areas of the world where the longest living people are and they are in pockets of the world. they look to see what things were common in those groups of people. they found 9 different things the older people have in common. so i think we should go through those. one of the things they found, intense exercise is important. also making sure that we are minimizing stress. people who minimize stress tend to do better. these are groups of people who tinted to wake up with a sense of purpose. there were other things as well.
2:49 pm
eating in moderation. and moderate alcohol consumption, and finally one of the things we don't think about is our relationships with other people. these are groups of people who had good relationships with family and friends. who spent time with people with similar religious or personal views. all these things combined might help us live longer. arthel: is there such a point where it's too late to start? if you are in your 60s or 70s, is it too late to get going on some of these practices? >> let's hope so. the idea as a family physician, i think these tips, even though the researchers found these were commonalities between people who lived long lives. as a family doctor i think these are wonderful tips we should all be employing. we are talking about healthy eating and eating in moderation
2:50 pm
and drinking moderation. spending time with family and reducing stress. we can all start this right now if it hasn't started already. arthel: one of the tips, don't eat until you are full. when you feel satisfied, don't wait until you are stuffed. now you have overdone it. do you have a new year's resolution? yes or no. >> i do make resolutions every year. i actually make them. one of the things that inspires me by this list, i love the fact that often times in the new year we think about our bodies. i'll exercise more. but i love how this list reminds to us think about our mind and spirit. spending time with family and friends and being happy and fulfilled and living a life of purpose. i'll make those resolutions and keep that in mind.

3:20 pm
expect a major white house shakeup in the new year? >> it sounds like will have new faces. we've seen some people leave administration. many vacancies need to be so. including the communications director. i don't see it as a shift in operations, more of tuning things up. trying to steer the administration into a steady second year. first are tumultuous and a factor in president trump is the true outside of president. he brought in a lot of outsiders. you saw a lot of chaos in the first year. that is not a good book going into 2018. i think the general kelly wants
3:21 pm
to do is bring instead your hands into the administration. you will not see dumping out of a lot of people. just a few here and there and filling vacancies and replacing early exits. >> eric: you have space bar, banning, scale and she, alamosa, previous, time price, this has been a 34% turnover, that is the highest. twenty-one of 61 names. when you think back in the president said he is the only one that counts. you have an overarching leader versus a jimmy carter who had all of that staffed. >> jimmy carter do not do well with his staff, he shunned the

whole washington staff as well. it hurt his relationship of congress. that is different from president trump. he has an excellent relationship congress. has democrats coming to the white house republicans talk about a great relationship. there is no complaints there. >> eric: democrats have have supported the president, note democratic votes on the tax bill. healthcare. how can you paycheck? when the president comes to washington because they know apparently someone may have booted them out is it due to the president and a sense of the job you don't have someone close like matt mccarty who went to kindergarten with bill clinton. >> and forget steve bannon who left.
3:23 pm
this whole campaign promises to voters. think trump is a different kind of president. he has been somebody who axonal, very independent. i do not see him as a president who depends on her right hand man josé to steer her left eye. he does his own thing. aides say one thing and the presidents tweet something different. he is his own person. i do not think having his police man -- i don't think it matters to him. probably matter most to him are his daughter, ivanka and his seminar, jared kushner. their family, i think they are
3:24 pm

3:25 pm
needs to not be trapped in the tax reform and other things. >> eric: how does he do that? what strategy will he pursue in order to face the democrats? >> i think you head out to promote tax reform and almost as important, work on infrastructure deal with democrats and republicans to try to get something going. it's a job producer. something people in the public would like to see happen. we know bridges and airports and roads need help. i think work on the dion infrastructure as well as immigration reform which is in the works as we speak and to materialize by march. then he will be out campaigning and talking to the voters and understand the extra money in the paychecks are because of him and the republicans.

and cities in recent days. they chanted down with the dictator and threw stones. there is an antigovernment gathering outside to run university. protesters were later outnumbered by counterdemonstrators. 4000 government supporters were on the streets in tehran. many took part in other rallies. they carried flags and banners back in the supreme leaders. this was meant to mark the end of the 2009 antigovernment protests. they coincide with the latest wave of antigovernment protests like this one on friday. this began as a small demonstration about basic food items. it turned political and violent at times. video shows protesters clashing with police at least 50 people were arrested most were later

3:36 pm
the number one concern is how far north korea may have gone with weapons program. south korea says they think the north is working on as many as 13 types of bio agents. the question is can a weapon nice these? their doubts. their choices. one is to put them on a missile, and others to put them on an artillery shell for use humans to carry the agents across. south korea thinks the north could weapon nice small batches of anthrax or smallpox in about ten days. it reminds us of what a threat this regime is become a. >> arthel: is kim jong-un is experimenting and biological warfare, does he need help from another country to develop the anthrax and pathogens he's developing?
3:37 pm
>> north korea has gotten it somehow. the anthrax strain was easy to obtain in the 80s and 90s. they likely have this in the country for some time. anthrax is also naturally recurring strain. there's reasons why they may have it in their blood. one, he was exposed to. maybe he was vaccinated with the idea he would be immune under an attack. it's also possible that he handled farm animals. since he is a soldier, i don't think so. the question is how much they're going down the road about weapon nice in a bio agent. >> arthel: can kim jong-un develop this on his own? is anybody helping him? >> i think they're capable of doing a lot of it on their own. what they will need help with
3:38 pm
this to weapon nice it into something that will fit on a missile. they are not as capable of doing that. but this maniac regime has gone too far. no wonder the un security council is so adamantly opposed. >> arthel: so what should the u.s. and its allies do about this? >> this is not new to south korea. it is more vigilant and what our allies need to do is stick behind the un security council about harder sanctions on north korea. we had to drive them to the negotiating table. the anthrax issue reminds us we cannot let kim jong-un develop at a more offensive capability more sophisticated weapons. what he is doing is unprecedented and attends us in north america, canada, europe,
3:39 pm
asia, and that's i has to be stopped. >> arthel: talking about chemical weapons are military weapons like bombs. you don't think he is capable of developing an icbm that he can put that anthrax on top of. what are you concerned about? >> if we let him continue with no sanctions and he can do ballistic missiles were purchase and about cruise missiles and continue with a bio agent research, maybe going to chemical weapons. at this point was on example with iraq that they had produced anthrax and had maybe 20 missiles ready to go. a coalition attacked and 91 but we need to have the military plans in place.
3:40 pm
and make sure that all countries are abiding by the sanctions. no more smuggling or military assistance going in. >> arthel: would you say that if kim jong-un can develop chemical weapons, with that make china stand up and take notice to make sure they put all sanctions on them as possibleh they came out of nowhere, sir!
3:41 pm

3:45 pm
bob, they're talking about an indictment against manafort. explain what that is and what we could expect. >> it's not an unusual move. what it is his additional charges they had on to be an original indictment. the superseding indictment adds those on 20 previously had. the probably be adding tax charges at a minimum. the financial crimes case they go about it because they're trying to put pressure manafort and gates to drive wedges between them and get cooperation moving up the chain of command. >> eric: you add more and more charges and ratchet the pressure up? >> absolutely. i believe that's what they're trying to do.
3:46 pm
there are no signs that the investigation will slow down. with the superseding indictment you can narrow down the charges from the original indictment. it is likely there'll be more indictments played on manafort and gates. they said more charges are forthcoming. it was up to manafort to be aware that more charges were coming. >> eric: they were a conspiracy to making false statements. papadopoulos was making one false statement. citizens not in direct connection with the -- they're just financial crimes are making false statements to the fbi. >> that's a demonstration has been same. it's been a witch hunt. no coercion. we have seen that most teams are at the investigation have been
3:47 pm
following the money. every time they do that they found something and they know that george papadopoulos admitted to lying to the fbi. now he squatted with wallerstein. present for the indictments against manafort and gates. i don't see chances of slowing down. >> reports say that the paint plan f somebody who is lying and save in his own skin. >> they will find independent objective evidence to support what he's saying. he will be a major witness. it will come down to his credibility. but the other independents they say they should be a major. >> and what that objective be?
3:48 pm
>> we don't know. it could be other witnesses, electronic data or e-mails. >> eric: can also be electronic surveillance. >> sure. we just don't know right now. a lot of times witnesses understand about cooperating evidence. >> how do you think of and prosecution testimony could play out? >> it's up to the individuals to determine credibility. it is shown that he is working with mueller's team and cooperating with wallerstein. it's likely will determine whether or not they find him credible. this is something we'll see in the future. >> and the president has been saying there is no collusion
3:49 pm
don't know public evidence. there has been collusion or evidence of drug coronation between the truck campaign and the russians that we know here's what the president said that i want to get your reaction mr. trump repeated that democrats do this is a hoax. everybody knows he did not clear with russians even though he insisted the ministries of our democrats work. there is no collusion that i think you'll be fair he said mr. after he slammed it. what i do now, can he be here? >> i believe he can be fair. these are political talking
3:50 pm
points. as head of an agency myself .-period-paragraph to twisted around. people will be fair and independent. one reason he sees sense is to move up the chain of command. he exonerated version is not a crime, it's conspiracy. is going to be guilty or not. >> there are not, stephanie? >> absolutely. you have to remember that mueller has been following the money throughout the investigation. it's made in the chain further up in the administration. >> eric: follow the money. happy new year. happy new year. i know you will be busy. we'll be right back show me used trucks with one owner.
