case you haven't noticed. sofas a little bit of a lighter color. we're over in -- what studio is this? >>eric: d. >>gretchen: okay. does huckabee still do his show here? >>eric: he does. >>gretchen: behind us here is a studio audience. maybe we can have a camera shot of that at some point. there it is. this is going to be the temporary home for awhile until i guess sometime in september, something like that. >>eric: brand-new studio. we start with brand-new developments in the kidnapping of research and -- kg of hannah anderson. horseback riders are speaking out. >> this story continues to unfold. one of the men saying almost immediately that he knew something didn't seem right when he encountered them in a remote area of idaho known as the river of no return.
the first red flag? james dimaggio and hannah anderson didn't have any hiking or rain gear with them and the teenager, hannah, was wearing pajama bottoms. >> it was like a square peg going into a round hole. they didn't fit. he might have been an outdoorsman in california but he was not an outdoorsman in idaho. he didn't fit. >> another red flag for those horseback riders? dimaggio told them he was red for the salmon river but going the wrong direction. another rider noticed hannah looked scared and was troubled by her behavior. >> we didn't know if it was the horses or what. when i turned and talked to him a little bit, i just didn't -- had a gut feeling about him. >> the group ran into them a little later at a lake. and just as they were about to leave, hannah said something that made little sense at the time. >> she said looks like we're all in trouble now, or we're in real trouble
now. and i thought it extremely strange. >> eventually that man called police after seeing the amber alert for hannah on tv. his call setting off a series of events that ended in her rescue and dimaggio's death. meantime we're learning a lot more about the eerie similarities between the life and death of dimaggio and his father. back in 1989 james dimaggio sr. was arrested for breaking into a home and holding a 16-year-old girl at gunpoint. he later committed suicide on august 10. august 10, that's the same day that james dimaggio was killed by the f.b.i., on saturday. this morning hannah remains in an idaho hospital with her father by her side. and coming up, two of those horseback riders who helped save her life will be live on "fox & friends." back to you. >>gretchen: thanks, ainsley. we have other stories developing. while you were sleeping a sink hole forcing people out of a resort in florida.
take a look at these dramatic pictures out of clermont. the villas are being swallowed by the sink holes. 60 feet wide, appears to be getting bigger now. the roof in some places snapped in two, cracks in the concrete. people who live there heard windows breaking as those villas sank but everyone got out safely. >> an amber alert was issued for isaiah perez on sunday morning after his mom and another woman were found murdered at their home. >> this was just a vigilant patrol officer sticking in the area, working on hunches on his home and he comes upon the child wandering. >>gretchen: officials don't know how isaiah ended up there. 22-year-old malcolm crowell under arrest in connection with the homicides and kidnapping.

>>eric: at day break colorado crews will continue searching for a woman last seen clinging to a tree during a flash flood and mudslide that left at least one person dead. more on the wild weather hitting the nation. >> witnesses this morning saying they saw the young woman described as having blonde hair on friday night as they fled the rushing waters near colorado springs. the flooding, the mudslides triggered when nearly one and a half inches of rain fell in 30 minutes over an area stripped of vegetation by a 2012 wildfire that same day. authorities recovered a man's body buried beneath the debris. >> it can be a dangerous situation. we don't know exactly what's in a lot of this debris. >> over in oklahoma city, a 60-year-old man drowned while trying to rescue a relative who was stranded by flood waters. while in missouri's ozarks region, one of the hardest hit, a woman and her son were swept away during
flash flooding in waynesville. crews spotting her body once the water receded. the national weather service says flooding is the deadliest thunderstorm-related weather event in the u.s. more people die from flooding every year than from lightning strikes or tornadoes. >>gretchen: heather childers live for us. thank you very much. let's talk about what happened over the weekend with regard to the sunday talk shows and lon snowden, father of edward snowden, the n.s.a. leaker, was on some of the chat shows and he was responding to what the president said during his press conference the day before about his son. i know eric, you're close to this story. you've spoken to the father before. >>eric: i have. i've spoken to lon personally. he's very concerned, a concerned father. he's also a concerned american. he's worried about what's going on. listen to what he had to say. he was with his attorney on one of the talk shows. >> at this point what i would like is for this to
be vetted in open court for the american people to have all the facts. what i've seen is much political theater. i was dis pointed in the president's press conference. i believe that's driven by his clear understanding that the american people are absolutely unhappy with what they've learned and that more is going to be forthcoming. we do have a perception problem and we have to deal with that. we need to let the american public know that this program is a program that protects them but does not violate their privacy. for an individual like snowden to turn his back and to give information to china, to russia, to al qaeda, that's wrong. he should be given a membership card to al qaeda because he has sure helped them evade our intelligence gathering which we use to protect us. >>eric: so this is on the heels of president obama's big speech on friday on surveillance and what he was going to do in response to ed snowden leaking some information. the president did say they're going to come up
with a website to allow more transparency for the n.s.a. and also put together a panel of people to discuss how to be more transparent in the privacy issues. but it seems a little bit too late and too little and i think lonnie snowden, his father, was pointing that out. >>tucker: i don't think that overstatement helps at all for congressman ruppersberger to compare snowden to an al qaeda. it is a bit of a side story. the core story remains the fact that the federal government has the ability and intention in some cases to spy on all 350 million americans. you may think that is a good thing or bad thing but it is worth debating. the idea that we should trust the obama administration, be quiet, that is silly. >>gretchen: the comment from the father of edward snowden was on the heels of president obama saying edward snowden was not a patriot for what he had done. that was the response to it. will this n.s.a. program change? there are a lot of
americans upset. will it change now under president obama? remember he kreut sighed president bush -- criticized president bush and a lot of his policies. i think it's pretty much going to stay the same. >>eric: tucker is right. they have the ability and they are spying on all 350 million americans. the only problem is they don't have the law behind them. it is not legal to spy on americans. the fisa, foreign intelligence surveillance act, foreign, has to be one of the factors when you're looking, when you're listening to, when you're reading e-mails or grabbing phone records, maybe even listening to phone conversations. the foreign part has to be part of it. it's in the patriot act. in my opinion, i think they violated the constitution and also the patriot act when they do it. >>tucker: this is not just an academic question. there's case after case of americans who have been swept into criminal investigations because of information the feds gathered on them surreptitiously supposedly in the hunt for terrorists. lots of americans have felt the effect of this and you
don't need to be a crazy aclu person to have concerns about it. >> it is a very interesting speech, speech in front of a press conference. to me, the most telling thing he said was perhaps something he didn't quite say. he didn't suggest he was going to operationally change this program. there's no suggestion that what he was doing and what president bush was doing before him with regard to these programs was anything other than lawful, effective and appropriate. >> i would disagree with that. lawful, you have to go by the patriot act. i have section 215 of the patriot act here. it says must -- must -- can only be used to obtain foreign intelligence information not concerning a u.s. citizen. if there is a foreign phone call made overseas. what they're doing is what's happening tucker. let's say i make a phone call or send an e-mail to
someone and it hits a server that's held offshore. >>tucker: eric is sending tucker an e-mail but hits offshore, they're counting that as a -- are you questioning the obama administration's good intentions? >>gretchen: i think he's questioning the way president bush did it as well. i think he's disagreeing with both. >>eric: president obama has taken the patriot act and blown it to bits. he said the patriot act says you're allowed to listen under certain circumstances. you can read e-mails under certain circumstances. president obama's administration has taken that and said those certain circumstances don't need to be metonym. we're just -- don't need to be met anymore. we just need to listen. >>gretchen: he had criticized many of those programs with regard to war on terror. he took an oath to do no harm but this morning a doctor is under arrest accused of giving patients chemotherapy that didn't need it. the reason why you may find sickening. >>tucker: fast food workers want higher wages but guess who is funding
their protest? charles payne next. >>eric: payne is funding it? >>gretchen: he could.yo he definitely could. ♪ ♪ erectile dysfunction - itld be a question of blood flow. cialis tadalafil for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you cabe more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms of bph like needing to go frequently or urgently. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medications, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sexual activity. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, as this may cause unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess with cialis. side effects may include headache, upset stomach, delayed backache or muscle ache. to avoid long-term injury, seek immedte medical hel for an erection lasting more than 4 hours. if you have any sudden decrease or loss in hearing or vision, or if you have any allergic reactions such as rash, hives, swelling of the lips, tongue or throat, or difficulty breathing or swallowing, stop taking cialis and get medical help right away.

>>eric: in states across the country fast food workers have begun protests for higher wages but some of their protests are being paid for by you, the taxpayer. >>gretchen: joining us now to explain how that can be, charles payne from the fox business network. about 5%. explain the breakdown. >> an organization called restaurant opportunities, r.o.c., started after 9/11 ostensibly to help workers who were victims of the terror attack but they more ed of into an -- morphed into an organization attempting to get higher wages for restaurant workers.
>>eric: last we can we had breaking news that the restaurant workers were going to walk off the job. they were looking for double the minimum wage. >> right now the number is $15 an hour. here's the thing. like with these particular organizations, what they've done is you go, you talk to workers, you guys want to unionize, let's go to management, let's vote on it. they're using strong-arm tactics back in the day when there were fisticuffs. we're not talking fisticuffs but intimidation. recently in capital grill not too far from here, at the same time diners got up, about a dozen, and my check! my check. if you're having lunch with a potential business client, you're going to get up and walk away. sort of idea is to scare off, if you will, potential customers and force restaurants to come their way. it's interesting, the focus on darton restaurants is
big time. they own olive garden, red lobster, capital grill. i think there is a couple of reasons for it. when obamacare came out, darton, the owner said i've got to put my workers on part time because of the obamacare. people were shocked. >>tucker: the reality is the restaurant business has one of the slimmest profit margins of all businesses. all restaurants and all big-box retailers together they make less profit annually than apple alone. they don't have big profit margins. >> apple can have a 50% profit margin. >>gretchen: this caught my eye. you're talking about what you feel is the end result of doing this. >> what i see is the creation of the modern-day
welfare state. i think what i'm seeing is the left realized you can't fund this strictly on higher taxes. they keep trying and it's not working. the idea now is to suck it directly from the private sector. instead of more welfare payments, take a $7 job, a job that commands seven bucks in the open market and pay $15. instead of having the government fund mortgages, you might have had a job for months, you shifted money and suck it out of the private sector. i think that is going to be the big-time goal for -- >>eric: got to go. you're going to host varney and company. >> will we be able to get back on track? we'll find out today. >>gretchen: next on the rundown, new details about james dimaggio. did the alleged kidnapper actually want to die? we have a homicide detective looking at the evidence. >>eric: anthony weiner doing his best to be the top banana in new york's

what can we learn now? fox news contributor rod wheeler joining me now. good morning. everyone relieved hannah has been found and she's safe and in the hospital reunited with her father. what do you make of the whole scenario and how he was caught and how he was killed? >> i think that's one of the questions that everyone is trying to figure out. what is the correlation between everything that has occurred with this case, going all the way back to the fire, going all the way back even before the fire. what was the relationship like between this guy did i i -- this guy dimaggio and this family so much so that dimaggio would set the house on fire, kill the mother and kill the little boy. what is the untold story between hannah and this guy dimaggio. there's been a lot of rumors. it is important to wait until the actual facts come out. but the psychological investigators from the f.b.i. is trying to figure
out what was the correlation, what is the correlation between this guy and young hannah. >>gretchen: i interviewed the father, brett anderson last thursday on the program and he confirmed to me that james dimaggio was a very close family friend and he went off to tennessee -- the father i'm speaking about -- to work for six months and he had no problem with his family spending time with this man. now it's coming out that quite possibly this man on the screen, james dimaggio, now deceased, may have gone on a trip to hollywood with this 16-year-old girl, the two of them, some months ago and they came back early because she felt uncomfortable. couple that with the fact that he told friend he had a crush on her. what do you do with that information? >> the term used, creepy, was used by hannah. that's because this guy was creepy. hannah's girlfriends made
mention to reporters that hannah said this guy had an affection towards her. i find the fact that her father, her biological father is a little different, i should say. i know people express their sympathy and their grieving a little bit different. but i looked at the interview yesterday that he gave and he seems awfully calm to me, for his daughter to have gone through such a traumatic experience. again, gretchen, i think what the psychological investigators and the f.b.i., which is what they're doing right now, trying to figure out what exactly was going on with this family and this guy dimaggio. >>gretchen: is it a good thing or a bad thing that the suspect is now dead? >> well, put it like this. we in law enforcement, we always would like to bring our preference is to bring the accused before the court of law. however sometimes situations dictate otherwise. in this case it's a good thing because this guy became aggressive towards the f.b.i. agents. they had no other recourse but to take lethal action.
>>gretchen: rod wheeler, an expert on all this. thanks so much. remember the newspaper that published the names and addresses of the gun owners in the state of new york? it turns out could have been a giant misfire. why? because this editor -- what happened? we'll explain. could pole dancing now be could pole dancing now be in the olympics?

danger across parts of colorado. out there it doesn't take much rain to produce flooding like you saw on your screen. we're talking about one, two inches of rain that could produce widespread flash flooding and we're looking at more storms possible for today. a very unfortunate situation across parts of colorado especially areas that have had to previously deal with wildfires. that's something to keep in mind. those burn areas are going to be more susceptible to flooding. we're talking about one, maybe two inches possible in some spots as far as additional rain today into tomorrow. other areas across the center of the country like kansas, oklahoma, last week we were dealing with extreme flooding out this, even parts of missouri. today, tomorrow, and wednesday looking at the potential for more showers, more thunderstorms and even damaging hail and isolated thunderstorms will be possible in kansas and oklahoma. in dallas, 101 for your high. 82 in new york city. parts of the great lakes are in the low 80's. chicago, minneapolis, we're going to see a cold front

heroes. the pair got a standing ovation from the huge crowd at turner field on sunday. >>gretchen: that was a good transition. >>tucker: speaking of sports, it was too obvious, wrestling on its way out in many american schools and colleges and in the olympics, but one group is trying to replace it with a new sport. pole dancing. pole dancing grows out of the world of burlesque. it is normally associated with naked women. but they are trying to convince olympic authorities that this ought to be every four years in the olympics. >>gretchen: when you look at this type of pole dancing, you say that looks relatively athletic. i know i couldn't begin to do that. look at that move. this looks like it takes a lot of practice, a lot of muscle tone and a lot of agent let seufplt but is
it -- athleticism. but is it the correct thing to get rid of wrestling? is it right to do that and replace it with something like this? they might have to change some of the terminology of some of the moves. have you heard of some of the terminology? >>tucker: are you going to do this? >>gretchen: no, i'm not. i was hoping you would. >>tucker: no way i'm biting that one, gretchen. we have this athletic, beautiful, fit woman doing those moves. is there men's pole dancing. >>eric: i'm not sure i want to watch that sport. >>tucker: they're trying to change pole dancing, give it a new image. spectators cannot put dollar bills into the uniforms. they are saying no dancing can be done in an overtly erotic manner which is a little like saying you have a boxing match but it can't be violent. >>gretchen: it said the
gluteal dance. no hats, canes. anything that is not considered attached to the -- >>eric: you know that one sport where like a ribbon attached to a stick. >>gretchen: rhythmic gymnastics. >>eric: is that still an olympic sport? baseball and wrestling aren't but you wave a ribbon. >>tucker: we can be open minded. if you can fire a gun on cross-country skis, why can't you dance around a pole? >>gretchen: i don't have a problem including new sports as long as you keep the mainstay ones, which is what we're talking about. wrestling and baseball are some of the original sports, and maybe we just feel that way because baseball is an american sport. but wrestling is pretty much a worldwide sport obviously. greco- roman. >>tucker: an american

[ applause ] but i want to tell you going forward, the best way to protect the v.a. care you have earned is to get rid of this sequester all together. >> eric: wasn't the sequester his idea in the first place? joining us is ceo of concerned vets for america, pete.
first of all, give us a sense, the veterans are sitting there, disabled vets, listening to president obama basically point his finger at congress saying it's their fault that the sequester is in place. your benefits are safe now because of me. but next year maybe not. what was the response? >> well, i wasn't in the room. but they're effectively listening to a veiled threat. this is a president saying hey, your benefits are good to go now, but going forward, they might noting because of congress. and to me, you got to see through -- here is the guy who is supposed to be leading our nation and he's standing up not leading, but demagoguing and anyone who has followed this known it's been the president's insistence on raising taxes, unwilling to do the heavy lifting of getting rid of things raising taxes. >> eric: the president quotes wreckless across the board budget cuts.
reckless? we're $16 trillion in debt. >> the reckless in the nature for the military in that hey, we're cutting critical programs, maintenance and training. there is definitely a reckless nature when itless could to our fighting forces. but we could reform the way the pentagon spends money in targeted ways to save about the same amount of money, but also make sure we're cutting fat. >> eric: this is a great nation. this country is amazing. we spend a lot of money on a lot of things. talk to us about the v.a. backlog. there are 780,000 disabled vets waiting for benefits. 500,000 are back logged. what's the nature of that? >> this is the first time he's talked about it in years. our group, concerned vets for americas, other groups have you been pushing hard on this issue. the only thing mentioned is it's taken too long, but gone down 20%. yeah, a million down to 800,000.
there are still 500,000 veterans in america waiting in line. that's not good enough. you know why? because v.a. is a bloated bureaucracy that's never been truly reformed. if the president wanted to turn that around, he would bring some accountability to that department. either the secretary should step down or be empowered to hire and fire as necessary in the department where you can't even get rid of the worst. >> eric: this back log increased under president obama, even though it's coming down from its peak, right? >> absolutely. it's gone up 2,000% under this administration, while funding for v.a. has gone up 40%. we've thrown more money at the problem. it has not been fixed. this president said he would do it. he hasn't. and he should be held accountable, the secretary should be held accountable for the failures of the v.a. >> eric: pete, thank you very much. >> thanks. >> eric: it will soon be easier to go through the u.s. customs in the middle east, more than in
new york city. and guess what you paid for the upgrade. we'll tell you how much. and edward snowden's dad telling his son not to take a deal offered by the u.s., saying you can't trust this president. donald trump here to weigh in. top of the hour a-a-a. f-f-f-f-f-f-f. lac-lac-lac. he's an actor who's known for his voice. but his accident took that away. thankfully, he's got aflac. they're gonna give him cash to help pay his bills so he can just focus on getting better. we're taking it one day at a time. one day at a time.

>> it's just like a square peg going into a round hole. they didn't fit. >> gretchen: hear from the heros who helped spot her straight ahead. >> eric: while you were sleeping, the resort near disney started sinking. vacationers evacuated as a massive hole gets wider and more of the buildings collapsed. the late breaking details coming up next. >> tucker: if republicans thought president obama was hard to beat, donald trump says hillary might be much tougher. is he thinking about throwing his hat into the ring for 2014? donald joins us live. "fox & friends" starts right now >> this is boone pickens, great show. watch it every morning. >> gretchen: we haven't heard one of those little entrees for quite some time. >> eric: he's a good man. >> gretchen: he should have done a hello to tucker carlson and eric bolling who are flanking me.
steve and brian are off. welcome to the two of you. >> tucker: thanks for having us. >> eric: pleasure to flank you. >> gretchen: thank you very much. [ laughter ] it's making me think of flank steak and now i'm hungry. let's get to the brand-new developments in the kidnapping of hannah anderson. there has been a development. the horseback riders helped lead authorities to hannah and her accused kidnapper, james dimaggio. now they're speaking out. one of the men saying almost immediately henew something didn't seem right when he met them. the first red flag, dimaggio and anderson didn't have any hiking or rain gear with them. >> they were just like a square peg going into a round hole. they didn't fit. he might have been an outdoorsman in california, but he was not an outdoorsman in idaho. he didn't fit. >> gretchen: eventually that man called police after seeing the amber alert. he returned back home and realized wow, those two people i saw, they're looking for them. his call setting off a series of events that ended in her rescue and dimaggio's death. that horseback rider is going to
join us live coming up next hour. while you were sleeping, a sink hole forcing people out of a resort in florida. dramatic pictures out of claremont. this is a half hour from disney. the villas are being swallowed by that sink hole. 60 feet wide. appears to be getting bigger. the roof in some places snapped in two. the cracks in the concrete are massive. people vacationing there heard windows breaking as the villas sank. >> you know, this is our first day of vacation of the weekend and taking the kids to see mickey and at this point, we're just trying to take an assessment and be thankful for that. >> gretchen: luckily everyone got out safely. many of the people evacuated are being relocated to nearby hotels. also new overnight a missing toddler found alive and well less than ten miles from his hometown. this is in rhode island. an amber alert had been issued for isiah perez on sunday morning after his mom and another woman were found
murdered in their home. >> this was just a vigilant patrol officer sticking in the area, working on hunches on his own and he comes upon the child wandering. >> gretchen: officials do not know how isiah ended up there. 22-year-old man is under arrest in connection with the homicides and kidnapping after he had a struggle with police. texas boy spent his summer vacation mowing yards for extra cash. earning thousands of dollars. he was not stuffing his own piggy bank. 11-year-old dylan sending the money to victims of the oklahoma tornado disaster. he mowed nearly 90 lawns, making $16,000 in two months. it's called starting a business. two dozen people died in oklahoma. dozens more were hurt in may when those violent tornadoes ripped through moore, oklahoma, south of oklahoma city. all right. good work, dylan.
>> tucker: so the headline is, you can make $16,000 in two months? i don't have any calculator. >> eric: 2,000 a week. >> gretchen: i wonder what he charged. >> eric: i'm sure he said look, i'm doing this for the victims in oklahoma. give what you can give. i'm gog mow your lawn. great job, though. >> tucker: that's the way to do it then. if you're going to mow lawns. >> gretchen: say you're giving it to charity? >> tucker: yeah. >> gretchen: i like the fact that he did all the hard work because sometimes young kids get a bad rap in this day and age that they don't want to do jobs like that. >> tucker: that is so much more than i paid reporters. >> gretchen: all right. let's talk about the nsa leaker's father. edward snowden's dad was on one of the sunday chat shows yesterday. this comes on the heels of president obama friday afternoon saying that ed snowden, when asked, he believed he is not a patriot for what he did. here is lonnie snowden. >> at this point when you consider many of the statements made by our leaders, leaders in
congress, they are absolutely irresponsible and inconsistent with our system of justice. they have poisoned the well, so to speak, in terms of a potential jury pool. where my son chooses to live the rest of his life is going to be his decision. but i would like at some point in time for him to be able to come back to the u.s. whether he's going to live the rest of his life here or not and face this, because i believe that the truth will shine through. >> gretchen: i don't know if he's going to have a choice of where he'll live the rest of his life. he's committed crimes, according to the law in the united states. right now he has temporarily asylum in russia. if he comes back hooks, he would -- back here, he would have to face a federal trial. >> eric: president obama -- the question was asked of president obama whether ed snowden has become a whistle blower now or is he still -- in the president's mind, not a patriot or traitor, whatever terminology. he said no, he's not a patriot. the question is, would -- would we be having this nsa discussion
without ed snowden? i submit that we probably would not be. he shined a light on something that most americans didn't realize was going on, specifically that the fisa court, foreign intelligence court that decides who and what they can listen to has been allowing the government to listen to regular americans', without any suspicion of terrorist activity, listen to their -- i'm sorry, read e-mails, at least look at their phone records, possibly listen in as well. and i think it's at least opening the -- the debate has been good for america. >> tucker: that's a violation of the law, flat out. the nsa is not chartered to spy on americans, period. and what is striking to me is of course snowden has been charged, of course he ought to come back here and face justice like a man. everyone charged in american court out to face justice in my view and be judged. but the people in the administration are violating more profound laws will never be charged. you can bet your week salary on
that. and instead, they're comparing this guy to al-qaeda. i'm not defending ed snowden. i'm merely saying, let's not take our eyes off the core story which is the u.s. government is treating you like a suspect. >> gretchen: will there be any change with regard to that because president obama -- criticized president bush for these policies, and yet many would say he expounded on these more than president bush ever envisioned. is that a good or bad thing for the safety of america as we continue to battle the war on terror? here is michael hayden -- is he the former c.i.a. director? >> eric: c.i.a., right? >> tucker: certainly nsa director. >> gretchen: here he is. >> you need to be careful, all right? there is very powerful oversite now. the president said so. i don't think it's necessary. i think it's pretty clear the president doesn't think it's necessary to avoid abuses. you need to be careful, as i said on air. what looks like additional oversite looks like bureaucratic
layering after trying to slain why you weren't agile enough to stop the last attack. >> eric: can i jump in? i was wrong. it was former nsa director. here is the problem with what's going on. the people who are defending what the nsa is doing, they're putting up this false argument. if you're for privacy, they say you're against security. and that's not the case. i would say i would submit for myself, but i'm for all legal means to use whatever legal means you can to find out who are the bad guys and bring them to justice. just do it legally. just do it under the constitutional rights that you've been given and we'll all be okay. >> tucker: trust us is not a policy. that's what the president has asked the country to do. trust us, we're not going to misuse this data. just like we didn't misuse data the irs had. oh, wait, you did. >> gretchen: you would be against these policies no matter who is running the white house. >> tucker: i would say it's really important, especially for conservatives, to keep in mind that a centralized power in the
federal government can be misused. we've seen it misused recently. be skeptical anyway. of course there is a balance between security and privacy, but the idea that anyone who questions this is somehow abating al-qaeda, that's unfair. >> eric: we found out about a week ago that the f.b.i. said that they can actually flip the switch on your cell phone, and they can listen to your cell phone, the speaker on your cell phone. you know that there are ways that they can listen into phone conversations -- >> gretchen: maybe they could help me with my phone. >> eric: if you can't trust the irs, the irs is work with the dea who is working with the nsa, who is working with the f.b.i., is it that much of a leap to say they may share information and share content of conversations? >> tucker: they have. >> gretchen: let's deal in donald trump on this issue and so much more. he had a really special trip that he took. hey, donald. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> gretchen: so were you in iowa, by any chance? >> i was, i was. a friend of bob who said, would you do me a favor? come out and make the keynote. >> gretchen: okay. >> we had a great time.
>> gretchen: you know what time are going to think now. iowa, donald trump, 2013. you running for president? >> it's certainly too early to even be thinking about it. welch three years, a long time to go. i had a great time there and amazing people. amazing. >> gretchen: that's as quiet you've ever been on any topic. >> really? wow. that sounds good to me. it was really something special, the people, the whole iowa thing is amazing. bob sander flats, who you know s a terrific guy. >> tucker: i can see you going over big in iowa. in the meantime, you've been giving advice about the bill, could be a death wish for the republican party if it passes. what do you mean by that? >> it's interesting, i'm watching people go in and then go out of that subject. they like the subject, then office they start backing off. senator rubio is backing off a lot, as you probably have been noticing. but really when you think of it, we have 11 million illegal -- as
they call them, illegals. a rough word, but it's a word nevertheless. every one of them, if they get the right to vote, is going to be voting democratic. now, that's fine and that's good, but are the republicans wanting to put themselves in that position? over a period of time, you'll have 36 to 40 million votes that perhaps 95% of those votes will be democratic. i think the republicans are starting to think about it and it's a problem. now, you have to do what you have to do. you have to do what's right. but virtually every one of those votes will be against republicans. so they have to be very careful and they have to think. >> gretchen: let's talk about what you think with regard to hillary clinton running for office. i know you were giving a warning to republicans that you feel like she's going to be tougher to beat than president obama. >> i think she's going to be the nominee, assuming good health and lots of other things. again, it's a long time in that case also. but assuming good health and nothing bad happens with respect to hillary, which i don't think
it will, and i think she's healthy and i think she's going to be health oh, she'll be the nominee and she'll be tough to beat. >> eric: on the gop side, the field as of right now looks like rand paul, ted cruz, chris christie, donald trump, who is the best to go up against hillary? >> think the field is so early. you know, i've been watching this for a long time and a lot of times it's the person they don't even talk about and all of a sudden, they emerge. but right now i think that you have a field that certainly has form. i got a glimpse of it. i met ted cruz. really nice guy. i met his father. i met a lot of people that are terrific people. but it's really too early to say what's going to happen and who will run. nobody knows who is going to run. none of those people said they're going to run. it's very early. >> eric: you want to pick one? >> no, i don't want to do it. they're friends of mine and virtually all cases. i don't want it do that yet. but at some point, our monday morning does very well and at some point we'll be picking
them. >> gretchen: that's true. and you may be in the game yourself. donald trump, always great to speak with you. have a great rest of the week. >> eric: thanks a lot. >> gretchen: coming up, he survived two i.e.d. attacks, but not a walk on the beach. coming up, a veteran kicked off a boardwalk because police didn't believe his dog was service dog. >> tucker: it will soon be easier to go through customs in the middle east than here in new york city. and guess what? you're paying for the whole thing, coming up [ male announcer ] centrum has been a leader in multivitamins for over 30 years. and it's now the most doctor recommended, the most preferred and the most studied. so when it comes to getting the most out of your multivitamin, the choice is clear. centrum.
it's a reality check. i had my reality check when i'd be sitting there with my friends who had their verizon phones and i'd be sitting there like "mine's still loading!" i couldn't get email. i couldn't stream movies. i couldn't upload any of our music. i couldn't count on it, that's when i decided to switch.
now that i'm on verizon, everything moves fast. with verizon, i have that reliability. i'm completely happy with verizon. verizon's 4g lte is the most reliable and in more places than any other 4g network. period. that's powerful. verizon. that's why i eat belvita at breakfast. it's made with delicious ingredients, then carefully baked to release steady energy that lasts. we're golfing now, buddy! i got it! belvita.teady energy. all morninlong.

suspected kidnapper. james dimaggio was shot dead. while his victim may be okay physically, her emotional state is unknown. her father talked about what he would do when he saw her again. >> let her know that i love her and her country was looking for her. you know, this was something that we'll have to take day by day and see what kind of help she's going to need and what kind of help for that i'm going to need. we'll move on from there. >> tucker: her father is at her bedside. what kind of recovery does she face going forward? dr. wendy walsh is an author and psycho therapist and joins us to answer that question. thank you for coming on. what psychological condition is hannah likely to be in right now? >> well, of course, she's completely traumatized, but whether that manifests itself into posttraumatic stress, we'll
have to see. she'll need a lot of grief counseling. she lost her mother and brother. >> gretchen: it's tough to ask, but there was a report out that she went away on a separate trip with this gentleman to hollywood, california several weeks ago, that she had told a friend that she felt uncomfortable with him now because he had some sort of a crush on her. but could she be complicit in this in any way? >> well, i don't like to use the word complicit, but i will say that this kind of predator grooms his victim often for years so that as adolescence with her was probably where it began and she probably felt flattered by his attentions, she probably -- she could have even had some delusion of having feelings for him, but again, this is all part of the manipulation. it's very easy to manipulate a young girl. so i wouldn't say she was complicit, but who knows that she didn't sort of cooperate
with him because she was under his magic spell. >> tucker: sure. it seems like fertile ground for stockholm syndrome. we interviewed her father yesterday that he had not spoken to her after she was rescued by the f.b.i. team in idaho. why would that be? do you have any sense? is there some reason the authorities would keep the father from speaking to the daughter? >> i don't know enough details, whether it was just purely -- that it was too complicated because he was trying to pack his bags and get onto airport and get on a flight, et cetera, whether she was being interrogated in another place or being given a specific kind of treatment or counseling, it could have been a practical matter, but i know the authorities will want to get all the information from all the sides separately before they put everybody together. >> gretchen: how does this affect her moving forward with relationships? >> well, of course, she's going to a hard time trusting relationships for the rest of her life. one third of american girls suffer some form of abuse,
whether that abuse is physical, sexual, or emotional. it most often comes at the hands of somebody they love. so this can be very confusing. girls can grow up to have an anxious or disorder detachment kind of style. again, we don't know how severe the trauma will be on her mentally. whether she'll have toss traumatic stress disorder, these flashback, just like a war veteran or whether she'll have survivor sin drum. she is young, so wonderfully, the brain has some ability to heal very, very well. we don't know. time will tell. >> gretchen: dr. walsh, psychotherapist and author. thank you for your time this morning. >> thanks. >> tucker: he survived two i.e.d. attacks, but not a walk on the beach. coming up, a veteran kicked off the boardwalk because police didn't believe his dog was a service dog. >> gretchen: parents, get your teens out of bed. the new miss teen usa is here. what happened to her because of
>> eric: time for news by the numbers. $35 million. that's how much money a doctor is accused of billing medicare and misdiagnosing patients with and ordering chemo for patients who didn't need it. $10,000, that's how much each survivor of the flight that crash landed in san francisco will get as compensation from the airline. they can still sue for more. and $425,000. that's how much u.s. taxpayers are paying for a new customs faciliti' abudabi international airport. it will be fasterring that going through kennedy at new york in
the usa. gretch? >> gretchen: thanks very much. this weekend america crowned a new miss teen usa. take a look. >> your first runner up is south carolina! which means miss teen usa 2013 is california! >> congratulations to you on the new miss usa, teen usa 2013! >> gretchen: hard to believe that was just a couple hours ago. fresh off the pageant, winner cassidy wolf from california. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> gretchen: so here you are in the big city and you're starting off your tour. i just found out you're going to be going to the new york film academy for a year. >> yes. >> gretchen: this is something in your blood. >> yes, i've been a dancer since i was two years old. this kind of is a new thing, but i'm excited. >> gretchen: you had already attended a year of college back in california. what's the eventual goal for somebody who has this happen so young in their life? >> i've attended a year of community college.
i just took on my own student loans and paying for my own schooling. this next year i'll be attending the new york film academy and have a year to kind of figure things out. so we'll see where things go from here. yeah. >> gretchen: we said we want to do give a message to parents out there and to teens with regard to social media. it's so tough. i can speak for myself as a parent 'cause you're trying to learn it while your child is learning it. odd scare. tell us -- you had a scare. tell us what happened. >> it's about on-line safety. about three months ago, i kind of got involved with an on-line stalker and hacker and it's an ongoing federal investigation. so i can't take say too much about it. but what i can say is that you just need to be so extremely careful with what you do on-line now adays because you never know what people can be doing to you on-line. social media is a huge thing now, so it's very important. >> gretchen: even got to the point -- i know you can't say much. but i want to give a warning to parents -- that the hacker got into your computer, into your
web cam in your bedroom and actually had shots of you there. >> yes. just things you're doing in your room, in the privacy of your own room that you never expect to being watched through. >> gretchen: what advice could you give to other young teens or to parents about that? >> constantly change your password. i had the same password forever, for years. so now seeing that someone can easily hack into my stuff just by downloading an incorrect link, it's very important to change your passwords, delete cookies, put a sticker over your web cam because you never know when someone could be watching. >> gretchen: great advice. the interesting thing is, folks, she's going to be living in the dorm. the new york film academy, we had always heard miss teen usa lived in this apartment in new york with miss universe. you'll have special hack he -- access. >> i'll be a full time student, but able to visit my new sister queens, miss usa and miss
universe whenever need be and so it's going to be fun. >> gretchen: i think it will be very interesting for your other classmates to find out that miss teen usa is suddenly in the dorm with them. cassidy, i hope you have a fantastic year, much continued success. good luck. >> thank you so much. >> gretchen: coming up, remember the newspaper no inn new york that published the names and addresses of legal gun owners? turns out it was a giant misfire fort editor. we'll explain what happened. and wrestling is out at the olympics, but pole dancing could be in. your e-mails are pouring in. yep, cassidy, you got a surprise look on your face. lots of other people do, too. we'll read your e-mails coming up [ female announcer ] made just a little sweeter...

two other people were reported missing have been found safe and maria has been tracking the danger there. maria? >> good morning. out here in new york city, we've had to deal with showers this morning. we're in a break in midtown manhattan, but could be seeing more showers later on today. it's a widespread area, including colorado that could have rain today. we are expecting more rain today in parts of colorado and like you just mentioned, we still have one person missing and one person was killed over the weekend due to flash flooding occurring from some of the storms. it doesn't take much rain in parts of colorado to see extreme flooding, especially in the areas that have already been impacted by wildfires. the burn areas are very susceptible to flooding. otherwise more showers and storms across the center of the country. some of those in parts of kansas and oklahoma, especially throughout the afternoon and evening hours, could be producing damaging winds in excess of 60 miles an hour, large hail and isolated
tornadoes. temperature wise, hot again in texas. high temperature in dallas, forecast to be 101 degrees. 82 in chicago, cleveland, expecting a high of 84. eric, tucker and gretchen, we have a new cold front that will swing through parts of the great lakes. tomorrow morning and also wednesday morning, some people across parts of minnesota and parts of wisconsin could be seeing some temperatures in the early morning hours in the low 30s. very, very unusual for the month of august. >> gretchen: yeah. but they're used to it. i remember snow on halloween frequently. all right maria. thanks so much. now to the other stories making headlines overnight. another twist in the aaron hernandez murder case. police believe that he asked his fiance to get rid of the murder weapon. according to a search warrant, surveillance footage shows jenkins carrying a lock box out of his home. police believe the gun was inside and she may have dumped it in the woods or even took it to a storage facility.
the editor who came under fire for publishing the names and address of legal licensed gun owners came under fire. the paper's on-line gun map drew widespread outrage before the paper pulled it down. he survived two ied attacks in afghanistan, but he can't complete a simple walk on the beach. army vet jared was taking a walk with his service dog along the boardwalk when an officer insisted guide dogs form the blind were allowed. he gave him a summons. the police department is investigating his claim. take a look at this incredible video. no one gets seriously hurt. a father and his son leaving a restaurant in romania when -- we're going to watch in surprise together. this is what happens. whoa. a driver loses control of his car, crashing within inches of
the pair. the man behind the wheel suffered minor injuries. dad and his son are fine. no word on why the driver lost control. and those are your headlines. >> eric: continuing coverage of a fox news alert. a week long manhunt ending in a irrigates national stand-off with police. james dimaggio, the man accused of kidnapping 16-year-old hannah anderson after killing her mother and her eight-year-old brother, shot dead by federal agents saturday night. >> tucker: what exactly happened in the moments leading up to this rescue and how is hannah doing now? joining us is the spokeswoman for the sheriff's department in idaho. thank you for joining us this morning. so can you tell us, one of the missing puzzle piece social security what happened in the final -- pieces is what happened in the final confrontation? was there a gun fight? how exactly did this unfold, his killing? >> that's what the f.b.i. shooting review team is in idaho to determine. that is the team's job is to
make sure that they get every piece of information they can about exactly what happened just before and just after hannah's rescue, and it's up to that team to decide. that investigation, of course, in-depth one and it will take several days and weeks. >> tucker: was mr. dimaggio armed? >> we don't have that information. that's all part of that investigation. >> gretchen: how important was it for these horseback riders -- we're going to be speaking to them coming up on the show in about 40 minutes or so -- but how important was there information when they apparently saw the pair, went back home, realized there was an amber alert out and called authorities? >> this is the most critical piece of information. these four people led the f.b.i. team, led all of those rescuers straight to where hannah and dimaggio were. and they were able to give us so much information about the land, about the trails that lead to them, they told us where they expected their vehicle had to
be. if you've seen the pictures of that car, it would have been very, very difficult to find had we not had some information about a likely location. so they really did -- they are the biggest piece of bringing hannah home. >> eric: a lot of people are trying to figure out how hannah ended up to be with this 40-year-old gentleman. is there any light you can shed on this situation, what her demeanor was like? was she scared? did she look like she was comfortable? anything you could do to help us out to figure this out? >> no. i know that that's information that people are hoping to get. but at this point, really our main concern is just making sure that hannah is safe now and getting all of the help she needs as she goes through what is undoubtedly a very emotional time. >> gretchen: so you had teams flying over this wilderness area looking before you had actual officers move in close. so how do you do that without raising suspicion?
if i'm dimaggio and i see choppers above me, i'm probably thinking they're coming after me. >> we're absolutely using the best technology we can to get a visual of that and we did have people in aircraft that were able to spot what they thought were two people and then they were able to get a little closer, they determined that it looked like this pair met the description -- matched the descriptions and then once the teams were on the ground, they were able to confirm that as well. >> gretchen: then, of course, they shot james dimaggio. he is now deceased and they were able to get hannah away safely. andrea, you're the spokesperson for the sheriff's department in idaho. thanks for your time today. >> you're welcome. >> gretchen: a fox news alert. a sink hole causes a florida resort to partially collapse. guests had been evacuated. this as the sinkhole continues to grow and another section is still sinking. the owner is calling the villa a
total loss. wofl reporter he live with the very latest. ray, what happened? >> gretchen, this was a nightmare for some 20 residents who were inside building 104 here at the summer bay resort, about ten miles west of disney. residents who were inside villas, which are two bedroom, two bathroom villas, describe hearing loud cracks, seeing cracks all along the walls of their villas and all of a sudden, hearing glass shatter as the building fell into the sink hole which we understand was about 60 feet wide and about 15 feet deep. we understand more than 50 people were evacuated from the area. some residents we spoke to described running for their lives and seeing people jump out of windows in order to get to cover and safety. the whole building has been destroyed. we got a chance to speak with one person who was inside at the time of the building collapse. take a listen. >> you know, this is our first day of vacation of the week.
we're supposed to be taking the kids to see mickey. at this point, we're just trying to take assessment of our life and be thankful for at least that. >> we do understand lake county building inspection officials are arriving here on scene at the 7:00 o'clock hour, continues. and there is daylight now to assess the damage and to determine whether or not more evacuations need to be made as a result of this sinkhole expanding. that's the latest here in lake county. gretchen, eric, tucker, back to you. >> tucker: thank you. you probably already have this beauty product in your bathroom. i know i do. but now you're going to have to show your i.d. to buy more. >> gretchen: do you? >> tucker: of course not! >> gretchen: the inside story -- looking for a way to show your support for our troops overseas? we'll show you how you can send unique love. hugs and kisses from home, right when we come back. don't miss it. ♪ the great outdoors, and a great deal.

david schwartz. david, he's suing the power company 'cause the power company has the money. they're not the ones who got drunk and drove into a pole. >> that's very true. they have the money. they're the deep pocket in this case. but they have every right to sue. this is not even a close call. i know it sounds funny, it's not even a close call. unless you want to undo hundreds of years of common law and theories of negligence, this passenger has every right to sue the power company. >> although the higher court agreed with david, it's such a not close call that the lower court, the judge on the ground level, the judge who has his hands dirty every day with doing the people's business said, get out of my courthouse! get out! you go into a car with a woman who you know is bombed, then she speeds. it's one thing you're drunk, okay, but listen, dude, we're going to try to get home under the influence, let's go slow. speeding, boom! hits the pole! >> david, what about -- this pole has been there for a long
time. thousands, hundreds of thousands presumably of nondrunk motorists have driven by and not hit it. >> actually the pole was hit two other times. so the county was on notice. that's first thing. the power company was on notice. the bottom line, you can argue as a lawyer and a jury may buy the argument that the pole was too close to the street and therefore, the power company was negligent. the judge ruled on a motion -- >> this is where common sense gets thrown out the window. >> tucker: people who can pay damages are guilty. >> exactly. >> that's not true! not guilty, but let's go after them. look, should the power company have to put the pole where it should be put ten feet from the roadway? >> yes. >> negligent per say. >> not per se. it has to be causation, it means the pole had to be an integral part of the accident. if it was ten feet away would the accident have happened? in other words, did she just
brush the pole or did she slam into it and didn't matter if it was five or ten feet away? >> tucker: don't you give up the right -- >> and she pled guilty. >> it's a civil case. to answer artie's questions, the driver was trying to veer out of the way. >> tucker: and the pole jumped out? >> yes, the pole jumped out! >> she clipped it. >> look at the facts! >> if the pole -- look, the law is the law. >> she pled to a felony. >> tucker: all right. >> a b felony. >> tucker: i think you've conceded that you're wrong. but i appreciate the spirited defense. arthur, great to see you, too. he charged an enemy fire to help rescue injured soldiers. but now the federal government has abandoned the man who helped him. a medal of honor recipient joins us. and want asylum in the u.s.? just say three simple words.

"fox & friends" starts right now >> i'm donald trump. you're watching "fox & friends." if you turn the channel, you're
fired. >> gretchen: yikes. good thing donald trump was already on the show 'cause he sounded like he was hot under the collar this morning. you might be fired if you're not in line. good morning, everybody. tucker carlson is here and eric bolling is here. >> eric: great to be here with the carlsons. >> gretchen: we have to start with brand-new developments in the kidnapping of hannah anderson. horseback riders who helped authorities find hannah and her kidnapper is speaking out. one of the many saying immediately he knew something didn't seem right. the first red flag, they didn't have any hike or rain gear. this is in idaho. >> they were just like a square peg going into a round hole. they didn't fit. he might have been an outdoorsman in california, but he was not an outdoorsman in idaho. he didn't fit. >> gretchen: so eventually that man called police after seeing the amber alert when he got home for hannah on tv.
his call setting off a series of events that ended in her rescue and dimaggio's death. two of the horseback riders will join us live coming up in about 30 minutes. check this out, a sinkhole forcing people out of a resort in florida. this is dramatic scene. claremont, florida. it's only a half hour from disney. the villas are literally being swallowed by the sinkhole, 60 feet wide and appears to be getting bigger. the roof in some places snapped in two, cracks in the concrete. they're massive. people vacationing there heard the windows breaking as the villas sank. >> you know, this is our first day of vacation of the week and we were supposed to be taking the kids to see mickey. at this point, we're just trying to take assessment of our lives and be thankful for at least that. >> gretchen: luckily everyone got out safely. many of the people evacuated are being relocated now to other parts of that resort.
also new overnight, missing toddler found alive and well less than ten miles from his hometown in rhode island. an amber alert was issued for isiah perez on sunday morning after his mother and another woman were found murdered at their home. >> it's just a vigilant patrol officer sticking in the area, working on some hunches on his own and he comes upon the child wandering. >> gretchen: officials don't know how isiah ended up there. 22-year-old man under arrest at this hour. he's been arrested for the two homicides and the kidnapping after a struggle with police. lea michelle giving a touching tribute to her late boyfriend and "glee" co-star, cory monteith. at last night's teen choice awards, she became emotional when she accepted the aword for choice tv actress. >> for all of you out there who loved and admired cory as much as i did, i promise that with
your love, we're going to get through this together. whether you knew him personally or not, cory reached out and he became a part of all of our hearts and that's where he'll stay forever. thank you guys so much. thank you. >> gretchen: monteith died last month of an alcohol and heroin overdose. fort hood shooter trial resumes this morning and prosecutors say it could wrap up sooner than expected. casey stegall is live in fort hood, texas with the very latest. what does that mean, casey? >> good morning. they're going through these witnesses very, very quickly and if they continue to go at this pace, we could see closing arguments, according to some legal analysts, toward the end of this week. that is unless there is any kind of a major hick couple, which -- cup hiccup, which we saw last week. everyone is waiting to see because it's a wild card at this point. major nidal hasan is representing himself. he's not a lawyer and he's had
some interesting questions in court, although he hasn't participated very much, which is one of the reasons why this is moving so quickly. we are in week two of this long-awaited court-martial. the shooting happened here on the fort hood military post in november of 2009. everyone returns first thing this morning. 10:00 o'clock eastern is when this resumes. the prosecution or the government in this case got through 44 witnesses last week. we're more than halfway done. we really knew what happened on that day was terrible. but we didn't know much else. that is until stories started emerging from the witness stand last week. accounts of blood soaked floors, people pleading for their lives before they were shot, even stories of heroism. multiple eyewitnesses telling the court about retired chief warrant officer michael cahill and captain gaffney and how they were killed trying to charge the gunman with a chair to stop him.
hasan looks frail, emotionless. he sits in his heel chair. remember he was paralyzed on that day when he was finally shot and taken down. he stares at the defense table the majority of the time, asking very few questions and not making much eye contact with the witnesses on the stand. people he is accused of shooting. gretchen. >> gretchen: casey stegall, thanks much. this is still very controversial for a variety of reasons, but the big thing is that it's being labeled as workplace violence and that has a domino effect for these victims. not only do they have to come and testify in front of nidal hasan, but they are not receiving certain benefits because they have not been -- it has not been deemed as a terrorist attack. >> eric: and he continues to earn his salary, upwards of $300,000 since the isn't took place. gets to defend himself, has evidentiary rights that he would
not have had he been deemed a terrorist. you kill 14 people and yell allah akbar, it should be labeled terrorist. >> tucker: now it's not even a question. certainly there was some confusion why he acted the way he did, why he murdered all these people. now there is no question, he's been really clear, including in communications with fox news, he acted out of his religious beliefs. he is an islamic extremist, this was domestic terrorism. >> gretchen: the government said if he's found guilty, then they may change the title of what they're calling it. but that's certainly still outrageous to the families who had all these years, now fourth year waiting for that. it affects the way in which they can receive purple hearts. so these families -- for that matter, the nation really, many people upset at the terminology being used here. let's talk about the nsa. we disagree on the couch about this. still friends with carlson and
boling, but the father of the nsa leaker, edward snowden, lon snowden was on one of the talk shows yesterday morning and responding to president obama saying that he does not believe that his son is a patriot. listen to this. >> at this point what i would like is for this to be vetted in open court for the american people to have all of the facts. what i've seen is much political theater. i was disappointed in the president's press conference. i believe that's driven by his clear understanding that the american people are absolutely unhappy with what they've learned and that more is going to be forth coming. we do have a perception problem and we have to deal with that. we need to let the american public know that this program is a program that protects them, but does not violate their privacy. for an individual like snowden to turn his back and give information to china, to russia, to al-qaeda, that's wrong. he should be given a membership card to al-qaeda because he has
sure helped them evade our intelligence gathering which we use protect us. >> tucker: it's not helpful to dismiss snowden, whatever you think of him, as a member of al-qaeda. i mean, you can believe he's a criminal, but we can all agree that the country deserves a vigorous public debate on the degree to which the government can spy on its own citizens and to write off anyone who disagrees as a terrorist ends the debate. >> eric: let's not forget on friday, president obama said ed snowden should have done it the whistle blower way. he said there are proper avenues, but don't forget, this is the same group, dennis clapper, director of national intelligence -- james clapper, raised his right hand under oath and said that we weren't doing exactly what we're doing, the nsa, wasn't data mining millions of innocent americans and then had to come back later and apologize for misleading the american people. the point is, if clapper is
snowden's boss' boss' boss' boss and he was willing to lie, i mean, doesn't really set autopsy great whistle blower program. >> tucker: how is the obama administration treated whistle blowers? it sent some of them o prison, including a form c.i.a. officer who was in prison now for blowing the whistle on what he believed were abuses. for the president to say, be a whistle blower, yeah, right. good luck with that. >> gretchen: who would have ever thought that if you are a pole dancer -- we get special music for this. anyway, could it become an olympic sport now? pole dancing? keep in mind wrestling, one of the first ever olympic sports. remember greco roman wrestling? that's on its way out, unfortunately. baseball, which i think got into the fray with the olympics in the '80s, and now that's going to be a time of the past. but this may be an olympic sport. >> eric: just to clarify, i
believe it's september 20, there is a hearing to decide whether or not they're going to remove wrestling. baseball i think was already removed. they may reopen that case. but then they'll also decide whether pole dancing -- again, very, very athletic moves. she's doing a very, very good job. however, don't remove wrestling and baseball. >> tucker: we should be clear, this is not your grandfather's pole dancing. >> gretchen: meaning? >> tucker: you can't put a single dollar bill into the uniform if you're in the audience and i'm quoting now. it cannot be done in an overtly erotic manner. >> gretchen: can you imagine somebody commenting on this? you know how they comment while it's going on? they can't use any of the terminology that's currentsly used. we can't even say it on tv. they'll have to come up with a whole new way of describing exactly what that act is right there. >> eric: can you imagine, you're a perfect 10 pole dancer? >> tucker: yeah. >> gretchen: i'm not sure how they're going to grade them, on what scale? shear a tweet from marie,
olympic quality pole dancing sounds more interesting and athletic than that ribbon thing or synchronized swimming. >> tucker: laurel writes, should we laugh or call dr. keith ablow to see if this event or sport is normal or nuts? actually i'd love to know what he thinks of this. >> gretchen: okay. we'll have to ask him. he charged into enemy fire to help rescue injured soldiers, but now the government abandoned the man who helped them. dakota myer here next. >> eric: want asylum in the united states? all you need to say are three simple words. the shocking words, the details next hour so then the little tiny chipmunks go all the way up...

i don't know. it's caught in the system, i guess. i don't know why he can't get here. nobody can give me any answers. >> tucker: the state department is slow walking this. in the meantime, he and his family are stuck in afghanistan. what is life like for them there? >> he wrote me an e-mail the other day and he said -- he starts off, he's so considerate of everyone else, but he basically is having to provide security at his house at night for fear he'll be killed and also doesn't have a job now. >> tucker: there is really no question at all that this man behaved heroically on behalf of the united states. and you and your comrades fighting in the marine corps there, and yet he is facing imminent death in afghanistan. have you gone up the chain at all? have you complained to office holders, for example, or your commanding officers? >> i have. i've complained to office holders and the response i got back from that was, well, there is only x amount of visas for
that. he should apply for this visa 'cause there is more there. in the vehicle that day, there was five of us. there was one medal of honor awarded. swineson is up, two navy acrosses and this guy can't even get a visa? >> tucker: there are 5,000 visas set aside for afghans who help u.s. forces in afghanistan and a very small number of them have been used. this reminds me, and tell me if it reminds me, of how our government has treated the pakinstani doctor. you see him there on the screen, who helped locate bin laden for us and then was promptly arrested by the pakinstani government and i believe remains in prison. we basically abandoned him, too. what kind of message does that send? >> people are going to stop helping us. these guys have done so much. i can't tell you how many times an interpreter has kept me out of a bad situation and probably saved lives. you keep doing this and people are going to stop helping you. >> tucker: that is really sad and frustrating and infuriating.

of a loophole to cross the border and get asylum here in the u.s. >> they're told if they come across the border, when they come across, they say certain words and they're allowed into the country. >> tucker: three of those magic words, a credible fear of drug cartels. nearly 200 people used it in just a single day. take a look at your tv screen. brand-new photos of the perseid meteor shower, lighting up the sky overnight and producing 50 fire balls an hour. the shower happens every august. don't miss it. eric? >> eric: thank you. many american teens are heading off to college along with that personal independence comes financial independence. so what can parents teach their teens today to avoid major money trouble down the road? >> gretchen: luckily we have personal finance expert and ceo of betterment investments, john stein with us this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning. it's great to be back with you. >> gretchen: let's start off
with what your company does. >> it's an investment platform that automates investing and makes easy for anyone to invest for the long-term. some of the tips that we want to give to recent grads or soon to be college students are the same kind of advice that we would give o anyone who is pursuing a long-term goal. >> gretchen: all right. so when we're talking about college, we're talking about student loans and they're just ballooning out of control. >> it's a major national problem. you can't discharge that debt in bankruptcy. what we say is be careful about how much student debt you take on. so i have friends who would use it for a fancy apartment or expensive vacation. but just think about $50,000 worth of student debt means you'll be paying $500 a month for the next ten to 15 years to pay that debt down. that's a significant drain when you're just starting out. >> eric: talk to us about this next one. a lot of kids get in trouble with this, credit cards. what are you saying? understand credit card before go away and get your own? >> absolutely. learning early is important. university of cambridge study said that most financial behaviors are learned by the age
of seven. so we're learning from our parents. we're learning from those role models at an early age. the important thing is to balance your budget. some people say don't even use the credit card in front of your kids. we think it's okay to spend cash. if you need help balancing a budget, you need a budget.com or mint.com. >> gretchen: didn't they change the rules with credit cards for kids? i think they did. >> that's right. >> gretchen: they used to be able to recruit them at colleges. >> absolutely. they've clamped down on it, which is good. some credit can be good, as long as you're balancing the budget. one way is our third point, which is get a job. you never want to be spending more than your earning. i worked at a hamburger joint when i was in school. it not only taught me great lessons about team work and leadership and all of that that i still relate back to this day, but it also was a great way to balance the budget. i always had money coming in and i would never spend more than i was earning that month. >> eric: i love this fourth one, personal experience in college. i bought a pinball machine. i bought a used one, put it in the fraternity house, every night i take the money out and
guess what i did with it. invested in college. >> here you are today. >> eric: college students shouldn't be afraid of investing. >> absolutely not. especially with a service like betterment, which makes it easy to automate those good behaviors. but even warren buffet bought his first stock when 11. you may not have a lot of money, he didn't when he started. but that power of compound interest over that long period of time makes a huge difference. >> gretchen: how much money are you talking about? if somebody has 100 bucks? >> that's fine to get started. there are services like ours that have no minimum balance. so you can start with nothing and you can contribute regularly in an automated way. >> eric: we got to go. but do you have some sort of cut rate service for kids who are in school? >> betterment is a great platform for actually starting out. you can invest just 100 bucks a month and it's extremely inexpensive and takes almost no time to manage. >> gretchen: all right. check it out. thanks, john. >> thank you. >> gretchen: coming up, they were just out for a trail ride and they ended up finding the
girl america was looking for. meet the four horseback riders who likely saved hannah anderson from her kidnapper. >> eric: anthony wiener doing his best to be the top plantain in new york city. why this guy just won't quit what makes your family smile? backflips and cartwheels. love, warmth. here, try this. backflips and camm, ok!s. ching! i like the fact that there's lots of different tastes going on. mmmm! breakfast i'm very impressed. this is a great cereal! honey bunches of oats. i hear you crunching.

[ laughter ] >> gretchen: all right. on to a much more serious issue. continuing coverage, 16-year-old hannah anderson found safe after a manhunt for hess kidnapper comes to a dramatic end. earlier last week, two couples on horseback spotted the duo in the i haded wilder -- idaho wilderness, but something didn't feel right so they reported it to police when they got home. mark and kristy and make and mary are credited with helping save hannah's life and for them, we should mention that the two gentlemen can hear us and the two women cannot. so we may have to relay a couple questions to the women through you two gentlemen if you don't
mind. good morning to all of you. >> good morning. how are you? >> gretchen: we're doing great. mark, why don't i start with you. tell me what you thought was unusual or suspicious or what you thought at all when you saw this couple together. >> well, one thing that was really suspicious was that this guy was -- he just didn't fit. he had the wrong kind of clothing on. everything was out of order with him. kind of like a round peg going in a square hole. then when we got down to the lake, then he carried a cap back in that rough country and was standing there stroking a cat. that was really unusual, along with the fact that he had brand-new slacks and tent and everything and tent was big, heavy. the girl was -- they didn't want to talk to us. >> eric: maybe you could tell
us -- you saw them, they looked a little out of place. but you hadn't heard about the story yet. is that right? >> no, we hadn't heard anything about the amber alert. >> eric: then what did you do? >> well, we just tried to talk to them, but they didn't want to talk to us very bad. they avoided it. that was extremely strange. when we got home, we seen the amber alert. i told my wife immediately, that was the girl we seen on the mountain. then we called the state police, got the ball rolling. >> tucker: what did she say? apparently you all exchanged words with hannah. what was her disposition and what did she say to you? >> what did hannah say to you? >> she didn't say anything to me. she was at the lake soaking her feet, which i'm sure she had lots of blisters from that long hike. i wanted to go over there and mark discouraged me because we really didn't have any reason. i ink he must have had an
instinct about me not going because if i had gone over there to talk to her, he might have felt like she was going to divulge something and something serious could have happened out of that situation. >> gretchen: of course. >> in hindsight, i'm glad i didn't go speak to her. >> gretchen: mike, if you could give us your thoughts. did you think it was a father-daughter kind of situation or what went through your mind? >> well, it crossed my mind a little bit when we first come up on them. i seen both their faces and she had a fearful look in her face and i just didn't like what i seen in his face. we got up the trail a little ways and i turned around and told the rest of the group that there was something not right. she was wearing what looked like either pajama bottoms or sweat pants and we got a little further up the ridge, there was a tent pitched, put up on top of a dry ridge and i did talk to
him. she wasn't giving us any eye contact much. but he told me he was going to the salmon river, which was the wrong direction. so there was -- >> eric: i guess the way i read, i'm not sure if this is accurate, but you literally started to ride away and then she addressed you and kind of spoke to you to try and get your attention. is that right? >> well, no, that's after we got down to the lake and they actually followed our horse tracks down to the lake, which is almost a 12-mile walk. we got packed up and ready to come back out, then we seen them pull up at the lake there and she had her feet in the water soaking them. again, she wouldn't give me any eye contact. crista did hear her say we're all in trouble now when we come past. i talked to him a little bit. he was stroking a cat. just things didn't set right.
we figured that when we got home, we needed to look at the news and see if we could find something out about this girl. just got a feeling. >> i talked to him and asked him what possessed him to come clear out here and he said that last year she got to pick where they were going and she wanted to go to los angeles and hollywood and so this year was his turn. so that was a plausible explanation why they were out here. >> tucker: was he carrying a firearm? could you tell? >> no. we didn't see any weapons on him whatsoever. but what triggered her to say anything was i was jokingly, i told her she was soaking her feet in the lake, and i jokingly told her, i says, you know, get your feet out of that water, i said, don't you know there is fish in there? and then she made that statement that, well, looks like we're all in trouble now. and we kind of figured that
meant that they'd followed us into the wrong part of the country there and they had a real bad hike back out of there. >> gretchen: so you get home, mark and mike and you realize that this is actually the girl that the amber alert is talking about. when you called authorities, how does it feel today to know that you are responsible for saving her life? >> well, we kind of figured it. we just did what any other citizen would do. maybe we was a little more suspicious than other people, but it's a real good feeling to know that it turned out the way it did. >> eric: can i just point out, you guys did a great job. you engaged the people that looked suspicious, you talked to them. stroking a cat, i mean, would stand out in my mind. you talked to them, got some information. once you found out about the amber alert, you made the phone call. anyone watching this, you played it by the book, i would say. >> well, we hope we did.
you don't take a cat back into the wilderness area unless you're going to hunt wolves or mountain lions. that's good bait for them. otherwise you don't take a cat back there. that's just totally out of place. >> tucker: was he using the cat to bait mountain lions or wolves, did he say? >> yes. a cat would bring them in in a heartbeat. i told him that, dimaggio. he just kind much smirked at me. that was it. >> gretchen: it's a fascinating story and it goes to show that regular citizens can make a huge difference in these situations. it goes to show how important amber alerts are and the four of you certainly have a story to tell for the rest of your life. we'd like to thank you so much for joining us today, mark and crista. please thank your wives and mike and mary. thanks much. have a fantastic rest of the
week. >> thank you. >> gretchen: now to other stories. michigan doctor accused of medicare fraud. the doctor is accused of intentional lee misdiagnosing patients with cancer and then ordering chemotherapy for people who didn't need it. prosecutors say he billed medicare for tens of millions of dollars through these treatments. his lawyer says the charges against him are bogus. >> the government has not retained an expert to give an opinion that there was a mistreatment or misdiagnosis or unnecessary tests given to any patient. >> gretchen: he has been in custody since last week. prosecutors believe he is a flight risk. be prepared to show your i.d. to buy nail polish remover now. cvs customers in new england will have to prove they are 18 years old. that's because police say nail polish remover is being used to make crystal meth in the area. they will put a limit on the number of bottles you can buy. what's in a name?
not messiah, apparently. a judge in tennessee made the parents of a 7-month-old boy named messiah change his name. so they went with martin. the judge says the name is for one person only, jesus christ. the mom says she will appeal that decision. those are your headlines. what do you guys think about that? >> i think it's an unfortunate name for a child and probably offensive to christians. on the other hand, i don't know why a judge would tell what you you can name your kid. >> eric: i would agree. >> gretchen: coming up, a mexican drug boss convicted of killing a dea agent, free on technicalities. how can that happen? we'll tell you coming up next. >> tucker: and clint black is here live to perform in just a minute. ♪ these time of trouble and these times are good ♪ ♪ they're always gonna be

>> eric: this morning a notorious drug lord convicted in the killing of a dea drug act is a free man because mexico released him instead of sending him to the u.s. dave us, he was convicted in mexico, spent 28 years in mexican prison. why did they release him? >> my assessment is this is not the normal judicial process. he's a man of enormous wealth. he still is maybe not active in running day-to-day cartel operations, but still has got network. it's an impoverished country, the kind of money he has can buy anything he wants. >> eric: he had a 40 year sentence. did mexico tell the united states they were about to let out a guy who killed one of our dea agents? >> i'm not sure the mexican agents knew. because it seems, and i'll give you my initial assess am. it seems that he had somebody in the judiciary who issued an
order for his release. they did it in the small hours of the morning. i don't think the mexican authorities outside this judicial process were aware of it. >> eric: okay. so this is raphael quintero. do we know where he is? >> absolutely not. by the way, i think it's important for people to understand that this is a man who not only kidnapped or caused him to be kidnapped, but he was tortured to death over several days. they had a position in attendance to keep him alive to prolong his suffering and the judge that released him knew that. as far as catching him, what's going to happen is they'll try to start working on locations for him and if it's anything like what typically happens, they'll get rid to hit the house and go in, he'll be gone. >> eric: he can come and stand trial here in the united states? >> absolutely. their worst nightmare for all these cartel bosses is extradition to this country because they can't buy their way out. they'll face u.s. justice.
they'll get a sentence and the sentence will stick. >> eric: dave, thank you. up next, the performance from country superstar clint black, but first, let's check in with martha for what's coming up top of the hour. >> hey there. good morning. a big question today is eric holder set to ease up on some drug sentences. karl rove is here and focus on 2016. can you believe it? we're going to get his thoughts on what's going on there. are we overreacting to al-qaeda? ted koppel believes that we are. k.t. is here. we'll talk about that and bill and i will see you at the top of the hour good job! still running in the morning? yeah. getting your vegetables every day? when i can.
