opinion she was joined by her grandsons prince william, his wife duchess of cambridge, prince harry, her husband prince phillip also there. hundreds of thousands of people cheering on their queen as the sounds of church bells ship horns and bands rang out. >> above all what we are celebrating is 60 years, she has given of service to our country, but also this extraordinary institution, that stands above politics that brings the country together, something we are all celebrating today i think is such a valuable thing in our country so admired across the world >> historic thing and something to celebrate. >> they all sound smarter don't they because they talk like this. yesterday's pageant set a new guiness world record for largest parade of boats again, a thousand roughly, but not everyone in britain is celebrating, what would be a celebration without protestors right? turns out hundreds of anti

quite a fantastic event for us. >> it really was and in some ways, it is fascinating because of the you know, this all -- they were able to make this happen buzz because of the -- because of the cryptographers breaking the japanese code so they did not have the element of surprise. can you tell me more about that. >> correct. the code breakers who actually, the intelligence officers working for admiral nemitz decided to try to make sure to break the code they could give a name to something, and say, it was actually alpha mike is the code word they used for midway, the japanese were, and they used that code, and put it in open traffic and then the japanese transmitted that and that all that allowed nemitz

looking at these pictures and the inhumane acts that occur and we just sort of move through our daily lives, it must be mind blowing for someone like yourself working for years, to fight this. >> well, there are more violations of human rights and religious freedom today than any other time probably in the last 100 years in china, the nobel prize winner in jail, catholic bishops on house arrest, 30 or 31 buddhist monks and nuns who set themselves aflame. in ethiopia, the christian community is being per cent kateed, bahais in iran, they are being per cent kateed, the amadis in pakistan, catholic church in vietnam. many respects when america ceases to be an advocate and speak out, it gets degraded. >> how long have you been involved with bringing these issues to light. >> started 19 4, went the --
1984, went to ethiopia, during the famine and got waylaid in a refugee camp where i saw things that changed my interest and things. >> really since 1984. still the good work continues here at home in the book you detail, really talk about china, and sudan and just some of the facts detailed in the book are unbelievable you thing how can this happen in a huge government that we don't agree with the politics but certainly recognized for the power that it is, in china you talk about people's organs being sold. >> they are. >> enemies of the state their -- how does this happen? in a civilized globe. >> well, it happens when the west does not speak out. i was in sudan a couple months ago in a refugee camp, george clooney went to up in yda. over 2 million people have died
genocide still going on in sudan, still at this moment going on, in darfor you are finding bombing killings atrocities. china gave the red carpet treatment to the head of sudan yet he is an indited war criminal. when america fails to speak out, i think it becomes dangerous. president regan said words in the constitution, declaration of independence were a covenant not only with the people of the united states but the with entire world i think what is failure is this administration and frankly the last has not advocated enough,. >> still it is a tricky relationship because china holds a lot of our debt, or should we be concerned at all, we are talking national security issues and the like, how close to home does all this hit? >> well, one i think that is a whole other -- we should get rid or -- frankly this country
is in trouble the only way to deal with it is simpson bowls commission, put everything on the table and deal with i. both parties have to come together. but we cannot allow that to keep us from speaking out. china, catholic bishops, house arrest. hundreds of protestant pastors in jail. they have mondayered tibet literally change -- plundered tibet. literally changed lhasa what that i have done to buddhist monknuns, atrocities the post have been running a series to on cyber attack america has to speak out if we don't speak out they will think we don't really care. >> here at home we are dealing with issues. i can't let you go without talking about the work you are working on student loan that one is looming for million offs americans also the threat of the debt ceiling debate and sort of lock gain, can you speak to those domestic issues >> i can and i talk about that
in the book we are facing an economic crisis the only way that i see to deal with it is to put everything on the table, reform the entitlements, close down these tax ear marks these tax loopholes and also, i am one who has not signed the so called grover norquest pledge but party haves to come together, put everything on the table we better do it soon. look at today's news, spain and europe. storm clouds are coming. >> i hop you come back to see us and talk about these issues you are always welcome, congressman frank wolf from virginia. we will be right back

>> the space shuttle enterprise was on the move again first it piggy backed atop a 747 now being towed on a barge while enterprise never flew in space it was used in pivotal landing tests on tuesday a tug boat will move the shuttle to intrepid seaair and space museum in manhattan where it will be lifted on to deck of the decommissioned aircraft carrier. the dow took its worst drop in the month of may falling 2.6%. last month ended another sour note. a new show on fox business network shows how those fluctuations will effect your personal portfolio. the new show's host, melissa francis, money with melissa francis premiers today, at 5:00 p.m., good to see you. and congrats on the new show. >> thank you thanks for having me there is no better time the launch a financial show than when we are right in the middle
of it as you said. the stock market having a really tough time near correction territory, we look like we could have another rough day today, europe is falling apart at the seems you mention that jobs report friday, most people expected us to be a much better place jobs wise, this far after the recession, so just a lot of challenges and head winds we will debate and debunk all the big business stories of the day and dig down deep and get the real story about your money. >> years ago not that long ago this type of news was for a select group of people who would pay attention to this but man, everybody pays attention to it now. >> that's true because when you look at so many issues out there, they all impact your wallet you can't afford to be ignorant about them for example, we have grover norquest on, he will talk about the hidden tax inside obama care. almost everything that happens
in washington has an impact on your wallet. you have to pay attention so you know what is going on. of course there is the market where most people's retirement is stored you have to watch that and watch what is going on with mortgages as well the job market is another huge one a lot of people out there trying to find a job trying to hang on to the job they have or trying to prepare their children to find the best job later on. so, it is a great time to be launching this show. >> obviously tied into all of that you have the political season that we are in, the national election of course, in november, are you going to be looking at that as well? how the economy effects politics? and you mentioned president o's bama, some -- obama, some said mitt romney is not offering details how he will turn the economy around. will you focus on that as well. >> no question right now we have the most pivotal election we have had in a long time one
thing they can agree on they have starkly different approaches, to get the economy growing again. one side thinks it makes sense to spend more money. they believe interest rates should be as low as possible as much money out there to get people spending the other side, thinks that policy has driven us to this point that it is you know causing inflation, that it is causing the dollar to be worthless, that the government spending has crowded out private spending those are dollars companies wouldn't spend when you talk to a ceo he says i am not hiring as many people as i would because i don't know what my tax picture will look like down the line. so you look at both sides they think the other side, has dramatically the wrong plan to get america growing again you really have to understand the underlying issues to decide for yourself who is right >> all right the new show is money with melissa francis debuts 5:00 p.m. this evening and will be on week days at 5:00 p.m., melissa
