7:00 am
know it, and you should be ashamed yourself. that is the end of this interview. >> if you missed thef program t last night with his immediate reaction to my firing by npr, you have anotherbi chance to wao it tomorrow at 9:00 p.m. sunday afternoon, as well, at 3:00 p.m. thank you for watching us tonight, i am juan williams here for bill o'reilly. pleaseto remember,ni the spin ss right here because we're lookop out for you. good morning, everyone, it is saturday, october 23rd. here is what is happening, funding underfire with calls to pull funding from nrp, staffers are upset. do they have anything to worry about? we have a look at the national rib ral backer paying for reporters there. >> they cannot vote but are trying to get other people to
7:01 am
the polls, immigrants canvassing for democrats and telling people they are illegal. you have to hear this. and president obama does not make eastwood's day. >> there was a certain line and hope that people believe it so he can stay in the position. >> why the acclaim actor and director is speaking out against the commander in chief saying he is all talk, no action, ten days until the election. fox and friends starts right now. >> it's fox and friends. >> good morning, everyone, thank you forgetting up early and joining us. if your day yesterday was like mine all anyone was talking about in washington, dc, where i was for the day, was the juan williams news. >> and interesting news that may have changed the equations and thousands of calls flooding the
7:02 am
npr hotline. >> but first the headlines, while you were sleeping reports of an attack at a u.n. office in afghanistan, blowing up the entrance allowing three other men wearing bombs to rush inside. fortunately, no u.n. staff members were harmed. it is not clear if guards from afghanistan were injured. the biggest leak of secret information in american history has happened. wikileaks released 400,000 documents on the iraq war and now it is said there is another 15,000 to release on afghanistan. the pentagon says that the website is putting u.s. troops in danger. these could then take the 400,000 plus the nearly 70,000 documents that came out in july with regard to afghanistan and then go through the half million document stockpile to look for patterns of behavior, how we respond in the wake of an i.e.d.
7:03 am
attack. >> more than 100 analysts have combed through the documents to minimize the damage to troops on the field. a terrifying scene at the factory in cleveland. the gunman takes the life of his ex-girlfriend and stepson. he shot his ex-girlfriend in the park lot and stole her i.d. card to get inside the building. in july she filed a stalking report after she was attacked by him and then did not press charges. >> sarah palin heads to florida to campaign for republican candidates and fired up the grounds in phoenix, arizona, with the tea party express. november 2nd we can see it from our house, let's take america back! god bless you tea party americans. >> the equity stopped by the rally, and he has also been campaigning for tea party candidates in nevada. those are the headlines.
7:04 am
>> the backlash from the firing of juan williams continues this morning and now we are hearing "washington post" reporting that npr staffers are worried and upset about the firing of juan williams and they are so worried about funding, really, and worried this backlash should have been handled differently and they are upset at the president. >> this came at an interesting time for npr, during fundraising week, and a lot of the affiliates are scared they may lose their federal financing pause overall npr received about 2 percent, but a lot of local stations would struggle if they are cut off from federal money and that is what a lot of republicans are calling for. and the george soros link? first the republicans we mentioned. they are calling for cutting off npr from federal financing on down from kantor of virginia, and tomko burn on -- and senator
7:05 am
coburn, and soros gave $1 million to media matters a week ago and $1.8 million to npr to hire reporters on the day that juan williams is fired. are they related? >> can you read it any other way than being related? he wants to fund 100 new npr reporters out in the field to cover, i'm sorry, 50 new reporters to cover state legislatures, and all to push his agenda? how can they be unbiased? >> the "washington post" has an interesting article talking about a meeting yesterday. no one would go on the record but staffers at the npr meeting talked to the "washington post" and said everyone in the meeting was stunned how this transpired. they did not think that juan williams should have been fired and if they had to talk to juan williams, that he was breaking policy, they could have done it in a much less explosive way.
7:06 am
phone calls were shielded from hundreds and hundreds of listeners so upset how npr handled this because they would not contribute because nrp relies on contributions from listeners and underwriting from corporations but millions of dollars comes from taxpayers and, so, listeners are upset, staffers are upset, and everyone is upset. by the way, the president of nrp admitted she mishandled it. >> absolutely. and juan williams hosting bill o'reilly last night had this to say. >> that crossed the line? let me tell you what you can say on national public radio without losing your job. totenberg wished that senator helms and his grandchild would get aids, i said, would get
7:07 am
aids, she is still working there. and a so-called humorous on npr said the world would be better place if four million christians evaporated and calling millions of americans of the tea party movement, a sexual something, will in the get you in hot water so some opinions are more equal than others at nrp. i thought the last wing was the home of tolerance, open mind distance and respect for all, but, now, i have learned the truth the hard way. it doesn't end there. we look at other examples, host of "fresh air organization last week, an entire show around extremists in the republican peter saying that the republican party is full of extremists. can you think of another time there have been as many running for congress running on the extreme. that is her opinion, and that is what nrp was chastising juan
7:08 am
for. >> ask bill o'reilly about that show, an aspire hour where he was attacked trying to get out the message of his new book, and juan williams talked about that and we have an interesting clip of that and june of 2007, an incident showing no balance whatever, in regard to the israeli flotilla incident and they had on five guests discussing what happened over there, and all of them antiisrael. no one in any regard defending the israel position or their tactics involving that flotilla. there are similar things that happen in the media today. but this is about state funding, getting your taxpayer dollars. and then not representing both sides. >> and another example which has a lot of play. from npr correspondent ... this was ... what juan williams was talking about, getting aids.
7:09 am
the reporter wished that senator helms would get aids because he talked about cutting off aids funds and what they told juan williams is that they wanted him to stick to news analysis. that is what we do, we do not offer personal opinions. so, those are examples of how they have broken that rule in the past. >> if you have not heard the sound of totenberg commenting on helms, listen. >> i don't think i have any jesse helms defenders. >> he should be worried about what is going on in the good lord's mine, if there is justice, he will get aids from a transfusion or a grandchild will get it. >> our fox news team called on npr to find out what is happening to her, her status, and she still has a job. >> we know that npr's cite crashed when he asked for comments and we want to know
7:10 am
from you, how you feel about the firing of juan williams and the taxpayer dollars going to npr. you can find us on foxnews.com, and on twitter. >> we have received more calls on this than any other story. this will cause outrage this morning. in washington state,-year-old stomping ground, up there, democrats are using volunteers that happen to enillegal immigrant canvassing to get out the vote. >> it is interesting because illegal immigrant trying to stay out of the limelight operating in the shadows but they feel so strongly about their plight they are going door-to-door and announcing themselves at illegal immigrants trying to get out the immigrant vote to vote for senator murray, a democrat, in a very tight race, and they say that they feel disempowered
7:11 am
because they cannot vote so they are canvassing trying to turn out those who can vote. >> and a tight election in washington state, the group is "one america votes," how would you feel if you opened a door and they said i am an illegal and i am not supposed to be here but i would like you to come out and vote. to the left coast, not just left in terms much the country but left leaning and hollywood rarely do you hear a hollywood star, actor, director, speak out against a democrat, or against president obama, but an icon this week did that. >> clint eastwood, dirty harry sitting down not happy with the direction of the country under the leadership of president obama. take a listen. >> i don't think he, i don't think he is surrounding himself with the people he could have
7:12 am
surrounded himself with and he is doing just what we were talking about, having to lay out a certain line and hope people will believe it so he can stay in the position. >> former mayor of carmel. >> he has been in politics so it makes more sense for him to speak out. he was a republican mayor. so it is not exactly like it is sean penn. >> but he supported gray davis in the election against arnold schwarzenegger so he is not just a rubber stamp. >> and now our own not just rubber stamp for the weather. >> it is richard. richard. rick, richard, ricky. and now to nicaragua and honduras probably not strengthening too much but it could if it moves further north but it will be a central america rainmaker causing land slides
7:13 am
possible. they have had a rough year. we have not with the storms going elsewhere and that will be the case again from tropical storm richard. warm across the plains but a lot of storms, and the last couple of weekends, it has been calm. rain and snow across upstate new york but into the central part of the country, one storm is bringing severe weather this morning, and just to the west of texas, a severe thunderstorm watch until 1:00 o'clock this afternoon, and heavy rain up toward the north areas like chicago and get ready for a blockbuster storm, pulling in across northern california toward washington and that storm, guys, will have big implications for a lot of people this week. >> thank you. coming up on the show, when this 15-year-old sports announcer he will make a call even though he cannot see the field.

7:16 am
>> npr is facing a backlash after firing political analyst juan williams over comments he made about muslims. even muslim americans are questioning the move.
7:17 am
one of muslim defenders says this is one of the worst examples of a rush to judgment since 9/11. you wrote an interesting article for the wall street journal, pointing out a story when you boarded a plane. you grew up surrounded by the islamic culture and are familiar with it, practices and teachings. tell us about that story and your fears. >> what i said i was flying out of berlin. there was a delay. they explained there was someone in a wheelchair that needed help and she was dressed head to toe in traditional muslim clothes and you could only see her eyes and it was not just me but you could read the thoughts of or people around, like, there was fear. and certainly fear for me. was it rationale? not necessarily. but we live in scary times.
7:18 am
why am i scared of someone in a veil and wheelchair? a couple years later we had the underwear bomber, someone carrying explosives in their underwear. it is one thing to have fear. and it is simply a feeling. i didn't want her off the plane but i am saying i could relate to juan's reaction. and he was not saying i want them off the plane. >> he wasn't saying you should be afraid. he wasn't saying i am proud of this fear, in fact, it was the opposite, he was saying, this is unfortunately the way i have this reaction. is there a conversation that needs to take place in this country that npr clearly is not willing to have about fears, about overcoming them and moderate muslims speaking out against extremists? this crazy polarization needs to stop and the walking on egg shells. there was a thing a few years
7:19 am
about a show where they thought they would kill arabs and muslims, and i was a fan of the show, and it was just out of line and ridiculous. we need to separate bigotry and someone as moderate as juan, it is out of line. >> npr was the place that was supposed to have the dialogue like that. should public financing be taken away from npr? is the hypocrisy too much? >> they need to be called to account for that. you can't just fire someone based on --. and they didn't take the totality of the interview, just one snippet. talking with the iranian driver who lived under dictatorship,
7:20 am
this would happen there, where you say one thing, and that is it. what is what npr was doing. you are crazy, take it up with your psychiatrist. that was out of line from the c.e.o. >> coming up, israeli-palestinian negotiations, the centerpiece of the president's middle east policy. a problem, our next guest says obama's policy is moving toward collapse and the fallout could be catastrophic. activia is better than ever! hey, you guys. want to try activia's great new taste? isn't this the yogurt that, you know... helps regulate your digestive system. ooh, i think i'll pass. no, no, no! trust me.

7:24 am
>> what is the future of the middle east? direct israeli palestinian peace talks are on the verge of collapse but a promise innocent palestinian plans to move forward with the creation of a palestinian state anyway. where does that leave the united states? president obama has been overseeing the peace process for 21 months. and now is former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. good morning, mr. ambassador. >> good morning. >> the palestinian authority prime minister says they must press ahead with the building blocks of statehood such as farming a police department and a central bank. can they do that at this point? >>guest: his comments reflect the palestinian understanding that the 21 months of effort of direct negotiations by the obama administration have broken down. i don't think anyone will say that explicitly before our november 2nd election but the
7:25 am
palestinians are clearly moving to plan b and not just the elements you have mentioned. the significant political element from their point is to try and use international institutions like the u.n. to make their point. >> if there was a security council resolution at the u.n. that affirmed palestinian statehood how would the u.s. vote on that? >>guest: that is absolutely the critical question. years past the palestinians, the p.l.o., has tried to use the u.n. system to create facts on the ground as if they were a state but prior american administrations, republican and democrat, have fought vigorously against that. the question is whether president obama would do the same or whether he might actually support a security council resolution endorsing palestinian statehood or at a minimum abstain and if the u.s. abstains, doesn't vote "no," or cast a veto, such a resolution
7:26 am
would pass. >> what do you think the u.s. would do and president obama? >>guest: given the view that the administration has of israel and given that the administration at many levels believes that the collapse of its 21 months of zip -- diplomatic situation is caused by israel i think they are at a point where they thing they can teach israel a lesson. if i supported israel i would be worried. when the president passes the election, what direction will the policy take? >> do you see in the near future a palestinian state on the west bank or the gaza? >>guest: no, i don't think the palestinians have the necessary attributes of statehood. they can pretend but among other things they don't have the capabilities you need. that is where the u.n.
7:27 am
resolution could make a big difference. one thing it will do is declare the borders of a palestinian state. that may not sound like much more than a technicality but if they declare the borders to be the pre1967 cease-fire that will cut the israeli settlements on the west bank out of israel and put them into the new state. >> thank you for joining us this morning. stay tuned. [ j. weissman ] it was 1975.

[ female announcer ] only flood insurance covers floods. for a free brochure, call the number on your screen. >> what is happening? >> what is happening now, in the commercial breaks we are even talking politics. 10 days. ten days. what is going on in colorado? what will happen in florida? pennsylvania had an interesting debate last night and we will get to that. this afternoon, president obama finishes up the four-day, five-state campaign swing. he is in minneapolis ten days before the midterm elections. >> and from washington and the
7:32 am
latest. >> good morning, guys. day four of hardcore campaigning for the president trying to keep democrats in the majority in the house and senate. president obama rallied with senate majority leader reid in a tight race with republican sharron angle. the crowd was smaller with 9,000, and he used the opportunity to hit the g.o.p. hard telling the crowd not to blame democrats during an exo that -- economy that went south during the republican administration. >> imagine a car is the economy and the republicans drove this car into a ditch and it was a really deep ditch and somehow they were able to walk away from the accident, from the scene of the crime. but they left the car down in the ditch. republicans have jumped on that motion and that analogy. senator thune said "republicans
7:33 am
want to reverse the dangerous course the democrats have us on." >> the president likes to say when you want to drive forward you put your car in d and you want to go in reverse you put it in rough. that is clever. but when you are speeding toward a cliff you don't want to keep the car in drive. >> good one liners coming out. president obama heads to a rally in minneapolis, a fundraiser with nancy pelosi tonight before holding back to the white house. and now back to you. >> thank you. a time we were tired of the car met for but now it has new life. >> the headlines are here and what else is happening: clashes spinning out-of-control in southern italy over garbage. protests set trucks on fire and threw garbage at police. they say the landfills are overflowing and contaminating their small towns.

7:35 am
the end of the campaign. >> how is that fair to maes. all thank you's your answer? >> interesting body language. >> latest polls have hickenlooper with a small lead and maes is behind. >> actor conveyed -- quaid and his wife are seeking asylum in canada. outstanding warrants were discovered against them for vandalism and they are free, pending a hearing next week. >> here is unbelievable video, a freight train crashes through a car but no one was inside moments before the collision, an iowa police officer was trying to help the driver get his car off the track after it was stuck and they hear the train and
7:36 am
upped into the squad contact backing away. just in time. scary. >> i wonder if quaid drove the r.v. up to canada? all the one from independence day. >> or from "national lampoon vacation." >> and now sports, a week ago we talked about the texas rangers never winning a home playoff game in 39 years and now they are looking to win a home world series game last night in game six, rangers, a two out two run double after josh was walked intentionally. and the yankees were just lit up in this thing. nelson going deep. two run shot. rangers up 5-1. they hit over 300 in the series, and never looked back. 6-1 is the final. and a-rod, woman the rangers are

7:42 am
90 days but it doesn't look like that will happen. what will happen in the state of nevada, foreclosures, again, top of the list. >> president obama there yesterday trying to sell, he needed to be chanting for harry reid, and he said you need to chant "harry, harry, harry." can he sell that to the people of nevada given the state state of affairs, the worst in the nation? >> i can speak to the economy in nevada. if you look at the economy and the shape of nevada it is in bad shape. that is why this is a piece of the puzzle, why the race is so tight. at the same time, he is an incumbent, been there for years. politically, politics aside, i am sure the voters of nevada want a change in their circumstances. and he has to address the foreclosure issue and that is what he is doing on the campaign

>> no. they have discredited themselves as having any valid claim on taxpayer money. i hear people say it is not that much. if a little bit of money was going to a church that used the money to preach the gospel, do you think the liberals would scream and say, a dime is too much? of course. it is hypocrisy, duplicity that is offensive. we should lay by the same rules, one team should not have the calls be made different from another team. >> one side is money and the other is the commentary from the commentators on npr that led to this. we will listen to totenberg's, a correspondent of npr and you comment. take a listen. >> i don't have any yes see helms defender. >> he ought to be worried about what is going on in the good lord's mind because if there is
8:49 am
justice, he will get aids from a transfusion or a grandchild will get it. >> that is egregious and npr's defense is she apologized. she did not get fired. and juan williams got fired and he did not suggest anyone's grandchild be infected with a deadly disease and die. it is bad form to say i hope a politician gets aids and dies but to say that upon a person's grandchildren, is unbelievable and over the top. >> this is a developing story and news today is there was a meeting and head of npr held a meeting with staff because they were upset how this handled and some of that, includes thousands of callers who have called to npr, regular listeners, and they want juan williams reinstated. i doubt juan juan would go back but he would like public acknowledgment they were wrong
8:50 am
to have fired him and to humiliate him. the issue is not the firing but the public humiliation of a good, honorable man, who was quoted for something he said that he felt and it was not the total context because he admitted it is irrationale to have the fears but he admitted he have them. a lot people have the feelings. they may not be proper, correct or rationale but he was expressing what people are facing. >> this could come up tonight at 8:00, and what else is on the show? >> we will debut a cd, some of the great artists including george jones, and all the proceeds of this go to buy musical instruments to children and it is all new material. and the commissioner of the new york police department. and much,uch more. >> the midterms are almost here and key races are neck and neck

>> good morning everyone, it's saturday. october 23rd. npr's funding is under fire after the firing of juan williams, but with a billionaire liberal backer do
9:00 am
they have anything to worry about. >> it's a hotly contested race, and both calling during a heated desite. >> every item that president obama and nancy pelosi wanted the only criticism it's not going far enough. he says buying american in his book, is an unfortunate tendency. >> we look at other races around the country coming up. >> in a shocking video of school workers physically restraining autistic children on the floor there. >> gosh. >> it happened to one boy and one mom is here why she wants the controversial practice stopped. "fox & friends" begins right now. >> i'm donald trump and you're watching "fox & friends" and if you turn the channel, you're fired! . don't do that, you don't want him on your bad side. >> good morning everybody, thanks so much for joining us, we have so much politics to talk about, as well as of course the npr controversy that continues this morning. here is some of the new news
9:01 am
and that is that there was apparently a big staff meeting yesterday held by the president of ncr, vivian shiller in which she got an earful from staffers in "the washington post" today. they don't have named sources, but the people in the room say that she is now expressing regret how she handled the juan williams situation and the people who work there think that it was handled incredibly poorly and by the way, an earful from listeners calling in the thousands. >> do you think we'll hear a public apology and some people are calling for the reinstatement of juan williams not that i doubt he would want go back there. and do they worry about the phone calls and staffers are upset, nervous, nervous about one thing, funding because now, funding starts to dry up, fund raising starts to dry up because people are outraged across the country and that's a big problem. the local affiliates, major problems. people talk only 2% of the operating budget nationally of
9:02 am
npr, but a lot of the local affiliates, the local stations could be hurt dearly, if in fact federal funding is cut off and how about the links. now how they're funded going forward. billionaire george soros who does not give money to conservative organizations or those in the middle and last week he gave a million bucks to media matters and attacks fox news and 1.8 million to npr to hire reporters across the country, that very day that that donation is made public, so, too, is the firing of juan williams, are they related? it's tough to separate them. and how all this went down. >> here is also what's interesting. they say that a third of those smaller npr stations, the local stations rely on the operating budgets from donations. and so, they happen to be in the middle of a fund raising drive. some people would say, oh, my gosh, how horrible for them. they're getting the angry phone calls from the listeners, yet, a spokesperson for npr, says actually we're on track to surpass or meet
9:03 am
our 1 million dollars goal. we are going to surpass that, is that because of george soros. >> and a number of senators, newt gingrich called for the cutting for the public funding and they want to slash the budget there and add it to a thing called the you could program, where basically would let voters call in and like american idol and text your least favorite government program. >> that's how it works. >> and we'll slash it, amongst the example. raises among federal employees, americans said with ut that. cut the fannie and freddie and repeal portions of the health care law, cut at that and also now putting this on the docket. do you want it cut npr funding. >> may be difficult to accomplish, they tried in 1995 sun successfully, they'll need a republican congress which or may or may not happen and the president to back that. tom coburn one of the senators calling for the funding of npr. he was on the factor, hosted
9:04 am
fittingly by juan williams and here is what mr. coburn had to say. >> they don't need any money from us and the question is, is there not enough choice and selection in the media, both radio and television today that the federal government that was 13.6 trillion dollar worth of debt out to continue to spend half a billion dollars a year on government subsidized need yeahs. >> so, how does juan williams feel about all of this? he of course is in the eye of the storm here. now, remember, what they told juan williams was that they didn't like that he wasn't just reporting straight news. they wanted him to be a news analyst without any sort of personal commentary, and that's the predicate upon which they say they fired him. let's listen to juan weigh in on this. >> that crossed the line? let me tell you what you can say on national public radio without losing your job. nina totenberg wished that senator jessie helmes and his
9:05 am
grandchildren would get aids, i said would get aids, she's still working there. a so-called humorous on npr said the world would be a better place if 4 million christians evaporated. hilarious. and calling millions of members of the tea party movement a sexual pejorative, tea baggers, won't get you in trouble either. i used to think the left conditioning was the home of tolerance, open mindedness respect for all viewpoints, but now i've learned the truth the hard way. >> welsh the e-mails keep continuing to pour in here to fox news channel and please send your e-mails, you thoughts from all of this at friends@foxnews.com. >> and i put that question on my blog, too. >> returning to overseas, geraldo rivera in afghanistan with our troops and earlier he went on a night raid and today, he's getting a feel for what life is really like in
9:06 am
afghanistan. geraldo joins us live from forward operating base blessing in afghanistan. hey, geraldo. >> hi alisyn, dave, clayton, it was a busy morning here with charlie company of the first brigade of the 101st airborne, we went on a patrol, a foot patrol of the town, the main town here on the river on the pesh river where there's considerable violence. that's why these guys are out there. not only looking for bad guys, they're also showing the flag and trying to get the air, this tumultuous area a feeling of stability. so we're walking through the village, actually the second largest town in the province, but walking through, checking out what was going on. it was a very interesting place, it's a place that seths absolutely destroyed during their okay asian here in late, in the 1980's, now it's been rebuilt and it's a thriving
9:07 am
community, but with the commerce comes the peril. you never know when an ied is going to blow or a sniper will take a pot shot at you, but the brave men of charlie company walking through the village and they found themselves at the clinic, the local clinic, and they're trying to establish relationships with the various agencies at work here in town. this clinic very busy, it's the only one in town. lots of youngsters, little ones, getting the care that they have so long so desperately needed. one of the things we were looking for though, specifically, was you know, there was an attack on our force,last night. there were three perpetrators of the attack. one of mom, our guys thought had been wounded in the exchange. so, they were asking, we were asking the medical personnel whether or not they had treated anyone with gunshots or other dramatic injuries
9:08 am
that might be associated with that attack on our forces so we sat down and had tea with the main administrator and here is how that exchange went. >> just trying to figure out if you guys yesterday had a patient that came in with any sort of a gunshot wound. >> i haven't seen that kind of patie patient. >> afterwards, charlie company set up a roadblock and lo and behold, one of the people passing through the roadblock had some injuries that were very suspicious. when asked, this fellow claimed to be an afghan national policeman. but you would think that a policeman, having sustained injuries as serious as this fellow so obviously had, would have had medical help. unfortunately he didn't have i.d. on him. the man in charge of charl
9:09 am
company ordered he be checked out and see whether or not he was indeed one of the people they were looking for from this attack last night. i'm joined live now by captain john peterson, he hales from tacoma, washington. captain, thanks for the walk along with your patrol. any word on whether or not the guy, the wounded man, as he walked down, was possibly someone that you suspect of insurgent activity? >> right now, the local police have him. he's claiming to be a police from a different district up north of here. so they're going to check into the police up there, call their connections and find out if that actually checks out. >> yeah, it seems quite unlikely. i notice you're also trying to build relationships not only with the guy running the clinic, but the shop keepers? i notice a great deal of suspicion. these people have been through decades of war and they're kind of sick of soldiers of all stripes. >> i think it's going well. the main thing when we patrol
9:10 am
in populated areas we make a big effort to get as many afghan national security forces out there, afghan national army, afghan national police out there so they can connect with the people because in the among run they're the ones that are going to be here long-term, 50 years from now. we're not going to be here. so-- >> hopefully, hopefully that's true. well, with charlie company at forward operating base blessing, back to you, dave, clayton and alisyn. >> geraldo, thanks so much, what's going on there. >> thanks to our troops, as well. >> my goodness, great stuff. thank you. let's get right to the headlines, we start with a fox news alert and more stuff from afghanistan, there's new video into the fox news room from afghanistan, more evidence of just how violent it is there, homicide bombers, attacked the main u.s. office there. at least three armed militants entered the building wearing explosive vests and three
9:11 am
guards working were injured and all staff have been accounted for. the biggest leak of american history has just happened. wikilea wikileaks, and now says they have another 15,000. the pentagon says the website is putting us in danger. our enemies could put these 400,000 and those that came out in july with rah regards to afghanistan and go through this half million documents stock pile to look for patterns of behavior, how we respond in the wake of an ied attack. >> more than 100 pentagon analysts have been combing through the documents to try to minimize the danger to the troops in the field. sarah palin heads to orlando to fear up the clouds on the ground in the state capital in arizona with the express. >> november 2nd week see it
9:12 am
from our house, let's take america back. god bless you, tea party americans. >> maricopa couldn't sheriff joe ar pia stopped at the rally and has been campaigning for tea party candidates in next door nevada. those are your headlines. >> let's check with rick reichmuth, hi, rick. >> yeah, we have tropical storm, tropical storm richard, it might be a hurricane. i don't think it has enough time to move over the warm waters, but not probably affecting the u.s. heavy rains into central america and new mexico and could potentially have catastrophic effects for landslides and the temperatures across the u.s. very warm in across parts of the central plains and along with that, a lot of rain that's going on all day long. to the east, areas of the deep south, atlantic seaboard, sunshine and rain and snow across upstate new york, but this is the firing line from chicago down to around dallas and we'll see severe weather at times and potentially, the
9:13 am
tornados, certainly wind and hail damage, and across the west, a new storm pulling into the pacific northwest that's going to bring a lot of rain and that's going to be the highest mountain snow as well and good news into late october here and starting to see a change in the pattern and maybe snow accumulating into the mountains and you want the warm interprets across the parts of the south and 90 degrees in tampa. >> that looks good. >> perfect. >> thank you, richard. >> and one more time. >> going to punch you. >> coming up on the show, candidates before the mid term elections and some like west virginia senate race are almost too close to call. what can we make of all of these numbers, we'll ask one man who knows more about numbers than just about anyone. scott rasmussen next. >> remember the democrats were complaining the g.o.p. was outspending them. turns out they are a getting money from the unions. we'll talk about that.
9:14 am
>> and illegal immigrants, democrats, how can candidates sleep at night with this one. oh, i'll get them to eat veggies. "how?" you ask. i have a way. it's deliciously clever. and they'll be none the wiser. new prego veggie smart sauce gives them 50% of their daily recommended amount of veggies. [laughter]
9:15 am
9:16 am
>> welcome back here to "fox & friends" and ten days until voters head to the polls and
9:17 am
election day. meantime, razor thin margins between some candidates in some races. independent pollster scott rasmussen joins us, co-author of the book "mad at hell" there's a palpable tension out there. in some of the races. nice to see you. let's start with california, it seemed as if maybe barbara boxer was taking back the lead now and seems that might be slipping. what's going on in california? >> you know, this is a race i expect the barbara boxer to put away, it's a democratic leaning state and the president is popular there and the latest polling shows the race tighter. are the latest numbers boxer at 47% and fiorina at 45%. one reason, 45% of likely voters in california say that barbara boxer's views are outside the mainstream and that's a tough position for any incumbent to be in. 38% have a very unfavorable opinion of their incumbent senator and the intensity
9:18 am
seems to be with fiorina. in california boxer is ahead a couple of points and the race, tells you everything you need to know about election 2010. >> well, perhaps and let's turn our attention to west virginia when i used to live in bloomfield west virginia. one thing, run against washington. no one likes washington. joe manchin, this is an improbable race running for the u.s. senate for robert byrd's old seat. i thought he might have had had locked up, and the ad with him shooting a gun at the cap and trade bill. not so much? >> certainly it's the only play we've got. we show manchin down. he is a governor, a good looking guy ab they thought they had it locked up. john racesy is not the challenge, it's barack obama,
9:19 am
conservatives, including democrats are looking to put racy in, at the end, closely leaning in the republican direction and that would be a stunning result. >> now, there's a tale of two states, what we saw in california something different appears to be happening in california between joe sestak and joe toomey. pat toomey, 48% to 44%. joe sestak is shoring up the base and his support among unaffiliated voters, nearly double what it was earlier and this race leaning barely in the republican direction, but pennsylvania is a state strong for the democrats and fairly handily in the recent
9:20 am
elections. >> and it will be if they get out for democrats there. if they don't, they lose. i'm going to hear you call a toss up a lot over the next week. >> i think you're right. >> and video of autistic children physically restrained at school and one mom says this controversial practice needs to be stopped. look at this, and she joins us live next. npr gets millions of your hard earned dollars and outrageous demand to pull that fund: why she says, free the taxpayer. mmmm. you don't love me anymore do you billy? what? i didn't buy this cereal to sweet talk your taste buds it's for my heart health. so i can't have any? if you can deprive me of what can help lower my cholesterol... and live with yourself. right. mmm, i worry about your mother. cry herself to sleep every night over my arteries, but have yourself a bowl.

good speech dad. [ whimper ] [ male announcer ] honey nut cheerios tastes great and its whole grain oats can help lower cholesterol. bee happy. bee healthy. a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. and celebrex is not a narcotic. when it comes to relieving your arthritis pain, you and your doctor need to balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, including celebrex, may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods.
9:22 am
nsaids, including celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. do not take celebrex if you've had an asthma attack, hives, or other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor about your medical history and find an arthritis treatment that works for you. ask your doctor about celebrex. and, go to celebrex.com to learn more about how you can move toward relief. celebrex. for a body in motion.
9:23 am
>> welcome back to "fox &
9:24 am
friends" on this saturday morning. quick headlines for you, connecticut republicans angered after the secretary of state says pole workers can ask voters wearing www.e merchandise, and a chief executive to run for office, lindsay lohan will remain in lockdown until next year, but not in jail. the judge ordered that she stay at the betty ford rehab center and take random drug tests. there you go. dave and alisyn, over to you. >> in the wake of npr wiring of juan williams, lots of critics are calling for the defunding of npr. lawmakers aren't the only ones fired up. so is our next guest. joining us is michelle malkin. >> hi, alisyn. >> there's a slew of republican lawmakers now wanting to cut off the federal funds for npr. this isn't the first time that the g.o.p. had tried to cut funding for npr. so what do you think the chances are this time?
9:25 am
>> well, there's certainly a lot of energy and the motivation that juan williams' firing provided certainly gives new energy to, as you say, a very old movement and i hope that republicans will do more than pay lip service to finally freeing the taxpayers from state sponsored media, it's know the just npr and the pbs and the corporation for public broadcasting in the fiscal year got a 400 million dollars federal subsidy. of course, that's leveraged by so many of these public radio and tv stations, they get state subsidies, state grants. there is no practical reason why, in a very diverse media society, why taxpayers should be forced to fund public broadcasting they disagree with. >> all right, michelle. let's turn now to the state of colorado, my home state where the governor's race is heating up the debate last night, the three-way debate and a three way battle some say, although the republican is a distant
9:26 am
third in the polls. here is what tom tancredo, running on the third party,s the constitution party, had to say to denver mayor, the suspect, john hicken looper last night. >> do you believe that denver is not a sanctuary city, i believe it is. in order for us to actually explore this to the extent necessary to get an understanding on the part of the people of this state, will you debate this issue with me, one hour, just the two of us, just this issue and bring this thing to a head once and for all as to whether or not we actually have a sanctuary city between now and the end. campaign. >> and how is the third-- in. >> and why was-- >> interesting michelle, because i think, tom tancredo would prefer the race be a two way race. if dan maes is out tancredo might surge to the top of the
9:27 am
polls. what's happening in colorado. >> this is my home state, not to tell you the tancredo surge is one of the hottest political stories not just of colorado, but of the nation and it's not a three-way race. dan maes is a nonentity now, pretty much every major, mainstream republican official in the state, elected officials, retired officials, have abandoned man maes and the tea party activists. look at the debate. there's hickenlooper hiding behind dan maes' skirt and when he takes there on the stage, he's many by hickenlooper. >> no question about it, it was an obamaesque, bitter clingy statement about rural voters and i think he's going to pay for it at the polls.
9:28 am
>> meanwhile, michelle, let's talk about how the democrats, there's been a lot of hue and cry about all of the big money that's poured into these mid term elections from big donors. well, it turns out that the democrats have perhaps the biggest donors of all, who are they? >> of course, it's big labor. and you know, the left has gotten away with casting the republican party as the republican of fat cats and deep coffers, the fact is unions led by afscme, the union for state, local and county public empunions, have given millions and millions, tens of millions, nearly 90 million dollars in dues and essentially, this is campaign main that's funded by who? the taxpayers because those dues are coming out of government salaries and in many cases they're forced dues. and it's being spent by these big labor bosses whom the rank and file, state and public and county workers do not disagree
9:29 am
with. they don't want their money being spent on views and candidates with which they disagree. >> michelle malkin, thank you so much for joining us with your insight today. >> my pleasure. >> thanks, michelle. a woman sued because she put out an ad asking for a christian roommate. is it discrimnation or her right? we report you decide. >> and then president obama does not make clint eastwood's day. >> and that, and hope people will believe it so he can stay in the position. >> why the actor and director says the commander-in-chief is all talk and no action. and he's looking forward to a brand new day. ♪

>> welcome back to dpoks foxx p >> oush leader president barack obama. take a listen. >> yopg he's got that and surrounds himself with the people he could have surrounded himself with and he's doing just what we were talking about, he's going to just layout a certain life and hope people will believe it so he'll stay in the position. >> he's not just an actor and director. one time politician, a mayor of caramel. he was a republican, but as
9:34 am
you point out not yus just, you know, sometimes across the aisle and be part of the-- i thought it was interesting, and clint eastwoodion and president obama is a nice fella, a nice fella and doesn't like how he's governing, he's support gray davis against arnold in california and the question for you. would it make your day if an illegal alien asked you to get out the vote even if the person at mitts to being an illegal alien and not in the country legally. when we saw the story i couldn't believe it. so you're having dinner and someone knocks on your door and the person that comes to your door, it's happening. volunteers for the democrats up in washington state, knocking on your door and saying i want to let you know i'm first of all, an ill legal aliens and want to tell you my sorry and see if that would encourage you to come out and vote and that's happening, happening on the democratic side in support of patty murray and not happening right
9:35 am
now on dino rossy's side for the republicans and a neck-in-neck race up there. they may not knock on your door because they actually are targeting the immigrant neighborhoods and basically say that the motivation to come out of the shadows, usual for them, they feel so strongly about the issues in this particular election, they're willing to take this risk and canvass and go door-to-door, you can imagine they're probably going to like minded neighborhoods. there's a group on the other side, respect washington so they have no mroem with this, the group that represents the residentials. we know you have issues with it, we have a lot of e-mails about that this morning and turning our attention today to what's happening this afternoon, around one o'clock eastern time when the president wraps up the four day, five state campaign tour and he's leaving las vegas and headed to minneapolisen and hoping to excite voters there. >> caroline shively, we're both excited to introduce you there. >> caroline shively is joining
9:36 am
us live. >> zooming from fundraiser toer. last time with haifrd. in a rice with sharron anal. the crowd was small. #,000 folks and used the opportunity to hit the g.o.p. hard and telling them not to blame the democrats for an economy that went south during a republican administration. >> imagine that the economy is a car and the republicans drove this car into a dench and it was a really deep ditch. and somehow they were able to walk away from the accident from the scene of the crime, but they left the car down in the ditch. >> it's pretty good weekend for one liners, republicans took the car in the ditch analogy further and senator john thune gave the g.o.p. internet address out this morning.
9:37 am
>> the president likes to say when you want to drive ford you put your car in d when you want to go in reverse you put it in r. it's a clever line, but when you're speeding toward a cliff, you don't want to keep the car in drive. >> the president's first event this afternoon in minnesota is for the governor's race, one of the big goals this trip is to keep democratic control of the senate and some polls indicate it's likely the democrats will ke-- >> and minnesota looks like a positive spot for democrats. one positive spot right now. >> ten more days. >> in the meantime here are your headlines. clashes are spinning out of controls near naples italy all over garbage and this dramatic video into the news room. protesters set garbage trucks on fire and threw trash at police and they say the land fills are overflowing and contaminating the small towns and the european commission warns it could face sanctions,

being on the autism spectrum and he was in second great. everything was going great up until about the middle of the year, he started getting very frustrated and you know, i kept having meetings and meetings and nothing seemed to be changing, but there were three instances prior to the last one which is what you saw on the video and the pictures. the last restraining being the most severe. at that point, i was not sending isaiah to school and so, i asked them, i required them, which is by law, to do a functional behavior assessment, where somebody comes in and the behavior analyst and objeserves the child in the classroom and only going to school 40 minutes at a time and i was in the front office. the first 40 minutes went fine and the next day they wanted to add additional 40 minutes and i felt that was too early so i told my son, if you can't do additional 40 minutes you tell that mommy is in the
9:56 am
office. >> i just want to interrupt here, because the point is, i think you were waiting for him in office, during which time he was being restrained in in prone position that has a history of having deadly results. can you describe to us what the prone position is and why you have fought against it? >> prone restraint is extremely dangerous, it restricts breathing, it can restrict breathing, and my son says that he was face down at one point, they used several different holds, in my opinion, you know, training that went out the window and it becomes a brawl, but from the face down, arms behind the back. >> and that restraint, you know, many critics say that's the only way to restrain an autistic child. you won your settlement, but what other alternative is there? >> there are many different restraint holds. there are standing holds, there are sitting holds. where the child, you're behind
9:57 am
the child, and you grab the child's arm and crisscross them around the child's body, but what is happening is that they're restraining children from noncompliance and that's different from restraining because there's imminent danger. >> absolutely and you are now fighting to have a federal bill passed which we're showing demonstrations of. good luck to you and we'll put more information on our website about this. >> thanks so much, anna, good luck to you there, and thank you to bringing this story. we'll have more "fox & friends" in two minutes. you want some fiber one honeclusters? yeah.
