melissa: it is cold. record cold. why is the secretary of state looking for coldarted cash? welcome, i am melissa francis i for neil cavuto. don't worry, he is back on monday. john kerry had some pretty bad timing. millions of people are digging out from the massive snowstorm and it is freezing cold everywhere, even downspout. and that is not stopping secretary john kerry for makin climate change a big priority in his life. critics say that hotspots are just about everywhere it should be the only real priority.
iran is pushing for nukes and so is korea. terrorists are attacking russia with the olympics just weeks away and syria is still a mass. former mcdonald's ceo says that we should focus on global warming. >> absolutely. when you look at our country today, you have to worry about nuclear weapons in north korea and the shipping lanes and the pacific be controlled by a nitwit in north korea. these are very important strategic matters on global warming is highly suspect. let's let the scientists tell us and figure out what the issues are. the secretary of state should be concerned about international diplomatic efforts to keep the peace. to keep us safe. melissa: it is even more mind-boggling when you look at his appearance. he took on transit about the mequon delta and he made reference to the war and this
area and then he immediately tried to link it to global warming. and he said that it's going to be the sit an even bigr problem down the road. meaning that this is one of two or three of the most potentially impacted areas in the world with respect to the effects of climate change. what do you think? people standing up listening to that guy? >> for them in his dogs and a society and its about freedom and libey. and you talk about in the united states we should be worried about ports and shipping and importing and exporting. this global warming thing is so suspect in so many ways and there's an equal amount of data on the other side. personally i look forward to some palm trees at lake michigan. i am sick of this cold. [laughter] >> the secretary of state should focus on strategic issues that deal with the safety in this country.
not just political headline grabbing nonsense that appeals to people that really don't know what is going on. melissa: no doubt. we are all freezing to death in the have to call a climate change. and there a ot of people that have said that there's a bigger impact on the climate due to volcanic eruptions and things like that, rather than what humans are doing. but i am not a scientist. those sound appalling to me. >> my background is physical science. when i went to college, chemistry, biology, geology, the fact of the matter is that shift of the tecton plates created volcanoes and earthquakes in the landmass moving. and it has a much greater impact than mankind that. and they are giving up fossils and people didn't arrive for 10 million years after the dinosaurs were gone.
the world today. it's an organic creature. melissa: in the meanwhile, john kerry is in the middle east, and many are calling him a oward and their israelis outside protesting the hotel that he is in. and it seems like we are becomi everyone's least favorite country, it even faster than other countries. >> let's be realistic. the people of israel suffered through the holocaust andhey should never ever have to suffer another. and it will create a psychological holocaust and if you want to focus on something important, that's what youhave to be focused on. melissa: ad, ed, thank you for coming on the show. >> thank you at. melissa: thousands of airline delays and cancellations and things to get worse. revamping airline rules for
pilots. they will have less time behind the controls and jane says get ready to wt even longer at airports. the jetblue vice president said everything we know about planning for an and operating a winter storm in the hurricane season will change on some level and there will be flights reading around because just because crews are not available. the biggest change in decades. melissa: the biggest change in on one hand without question i want my pilots to be
well-trained. e crash was blamed on tired of pilots. someone might be well rested. united and continental say they are hiring about a hundred to help out. is there a chance that they will mitigate tht delays and we will all be on time and savor? >> no matter how you look at it, there will be a cost. it will be increased for fares. and it is, all of this is based upon a false premise says. and quite it doesn't mean that we have no regulations, but let's put this in perspective. air travel is ae andt's
safe tha was eore. melsa: fa, th iwh th el head h dea operionshats well. the we will have to take pilots and others offff duty. so does that mean i should try not to book the flights that started late in the day and travel in the morning instead from a practical perspective? >> there really is no escaping it. and you may be waiting in small towns where there are no crews available. melissa: -underscore and to stay home and have a nicemeal and watch a movie.

>> i think that the government blew it. they said basically we're not spying on any americans. but it is like, oh, wonderful. melissa: mark zuckerberg taking his information, but he's okay sharing yours. saying they are not cashing in on private messages. some say they have a case. >> this is a very interesting case or it the class representive of all e facebook users. what they are saying is that facebook is iolating their privacy rights under state and federal laws because they are going into the private messages. we're talking about and that is
being scanned by facebook and shared by others. melissa: there is an argument that this is violating the electronic communities and privacy act. >> that is the argument. but really we needo lookat what the user agreement is between facebook and its users a master copy of a complaint. and it shows thafacebook warns people about what they will do what their with their data. and some of it includes giving it to advertisers or that they have access to just about everything. >> under the complaint that says that it compensates the data related to the private messages.
and so it does. melissa: decided their hope of? >> it doesn't do them off the hook though. the facebook user agreement is ambiguous on this topic and i think for a reason. to take advantage of its privacy -- user privacy for profit. google was recently sued and a judge ruled against google for this exact same thing. google is appealing a trade-off has also been talking about this type of privacy invasion and if that is going to have difficulty defending this. because it's not as if you're posting it for the wholl world to see. melissa: they are there using algorithms to see what you're saying and then sell your interest in what you're doing to othther people so they can take advantage of that and sell that and sell things to you. so even though they are
appealing. >> the judge has ruled that it's too big and they violated their own terms. against facebook to see i there user situation is as vague as that. bjorn from what you heard, it sounds like it is part of this remark i think it's probably more ambiguous and i also think that reasonable expectation of the facebook user is that those private messages will be private. they won't be part of any other purpose for profit or for any other detrimental costs. melissa: it means big money to them. i don't want to gloss over the point. but that is how they make money on facebook. and if you are honored during your business and posting your pictures, the only way facebook
makes money is you look at the stock price or. and so this is a big blow if he loses. >> it is. i take issue with the fact that anyone who really believes that they could have a private message on something as big as social media. if you don't like facebook, you don't have to belong to facebook. you can turn it off. sn i don't expect the government to be listening on my phone calls either. >> let's keep in mind this lawsuit is coming in the wake of a federal judge that says that investors in the public offering last year can go forward forward with our lawsuit against resort. severe dealing with lawsuits on so many different kinds you and thank you to both of you, we will talk about it more.
>> a lot of people follow and i know florida is basing this same issue and i really think that they were both waiting o us to act. melissa: that is sergio garcia who can practice law in california. the california supreme court giving him the green light. that i the latest giving more rights to illegals and many lawmakers in washington are pushing for immigration reform as well. the heitage foundation estimating that granting amnesty to ilegals would cost taxpayers more than $6 trillion.
and that is exctly what our editor is afraid of. here to clash out with her is adam lashinsky. the kiwi, let me start wh you. because every time i do this today, there are so many individuals on either side. the cost to all of the social welfare programs, versus how much productivity, what work that they would do and what they can consume. so how do you come by the numbers? >> i actually ascribed to paul ryan's view tt entitlements, yes, that's something we need to look at. and it doesn't actually allow some to have entitlements. so that is part of the debate. but when marco rubio, when he approached the chief actuary, they said 3.2 million jobs will be created over 10 years and gdp growth will actually be one third-grader over 10 years. so as long as, in my opinion, as
long as wecan push aside the entitlements and allow people to get jobs, it will be that good in the long run. melissa: adam, what do you think about that? >> that makes goo sense to me. there's no question that our entire economy in the history of our country is built upon the backs of immigrants. so everything that we can do to make illegal immigrants legal in a sort of responsible and measured process, it will be good for not only those people that the entire country. melissa: but you know this whole idea of pushing it aside, already you're seeing illegals in this country become part of the system, whether it'sending their children to school where they are not legal residents or paying taxes. and it is a drag on the ecnomy. we were talking about this the specific case of sergio garcia in california. and it makes a lot of people very uncomfortable. someone who has been living outside of the law illegally is
not supposed t respect and uphold s legal advice when h is still here illegally. >> yes. he is someone whose immigration status is pending. he was born in mexico and he came at a ung age. he went to law school and so the court said in this case, he is someone who can practice law. until it is in a very special case. he's not some criminal who hopped over the border in the dark of night. melissa: but by virtue of coming here legally, you say he's not a criminal. but the law is the law. >> to comment. his status is pending and that's part of it. >> when it's been pending, we all know people have come to this country illegally.
melissa: let kelly get a word. >> ironically, the questions were soprobing all the way down to have you, if i had had a traffic violation, there there's an illegal immigrant who doesn't even have the goods are there has to be respect for the law. melissa: you can of the last word. >> i will talk about that. and that i just told you how upstanding you are as an individual
the one he has been living outside of this. bless his heart. he has worked so hard and got to school and all those things. and at the same time, you can't escape the fact that he has them @% illegally. he wanted to give of you, have a wonderful weekend. after first you don't succeed, change the rules. meet the attorney general who says what they are doing with health care is illegal. ♪ ♪

that relates to yourrior story, there is a fundamental issue in this country. the law is a law. americans get frustrated when laws are not enforced, wetherbee the immigration issue or the obamacare issue. it was just months ago when the president came out and said obamacare is the law of the land and people need to abide by it. we have seen that along care is supposed to be enforced. the obama administration then sells realized it could not be enforced, so they keep changing the law which violates the constitution because only congress, not the president, has the power to change laws in this country. melissa: it is incredibly frustrating, and americans share your sentiment in both stories. you feel like, i am forced to live my life within the law or risk going to jail and did you see other people who are supposed to be enforcing an embarrassing loss in the country or violating them, the president to launchour point of being one of them. how worthing pposed to be
changed as we get closer and closer boat -- we passed the deadline, but as the president saw that it will be hard to meet, what could he have done? >> i actually -- action was taken to fix the present -- problems. e united states house of representatives passed laws that fix these problems. all the president had to do is pick up the phonn, call harry reid and say, i need you to have the senate agree with the law passed by the house which would have fixed the problem. that is the constitutional way to address this challenge, not by these e legal fiat's. melissa: what is it that you are doing now? banding together with these other attorneys general. what to you hope to achieve? >> the first is to give the secretary of health and human services, at to get her to agree to no longer make these illegals changes and to ensure that navigator's comply with the law
and rise to higher standards, but failing that, this is team is set for other potential legal challenges to the way that obamacare law is being enforced. it is now no longer the law of the land. the obama administratio has written a lot. melissa: and they are running for her -- to the majority of people and texas not like obamacare? >>exans are completely frustrated with the obamacare law. fresh credit wh the federal government tried to tell them what to do, make them buy products that they don't want, but presser with the president's that has no regard for constitutional principles. yes, taxes are in agreement with me that we need to do all that we can to overturn the overreached. melissa: the tremendous lack of
security. does that surprise you? what duties to be done about that? >> this is a part of the letter that we sent to secretary sibelius. the second time we broke -- pass this issue. we're in the process of covering -- coming of the new standards not try to compromise the private individual information. melissa: thank you for your time. good luck. it is important that we provide coverage for all people. if everyone has coverage then they're not going to the emergency room for treatment. melissa: enrollees are actually 40 percent more likely to visit the emergency room. the daily caller jamie wines teen says those numbers directly counter that the president's
promised a health care reform would cut costs the hospital. you know, i found this study- welcome to the show, shocking. it found that people that were on the roles of medicaid, and this is in oregon, i believe, went on average to the emergency room one-and-a-half times per year as opposed to closer to once a year for people who are not. had the race when this? >> a national study program. let's get the researchers. they expanded their -- so researchers would compare the 10,000 that got medicaid for those that didn't. aziz saidhey frequent the doctor more often than not. melissa: one of the logical assumptions.
the logic behind thinking they would go less is that if you had coverage you'd have a primary care physician. so you would rather go see a regular doctor then go to the emergency room. let's be honest is a nightmare to the riser room. takes forever. you don't know what can of -- even the new york times is supported that theirs is not enough doctorsp there to take care of medicaid patients. that is certainly a possible explanation. that is the only way one can explain that. they're even coming in for route things like colds, which would not think he wouldeed to get emergency care for, the emergency room, especially if he did not have insurance. melissa: i have to look at this personally because it makes no sense. no one in my household has gone
to the are even once. you would basically need a gunshot wound in my house because it is awful. you sit there for hours, have no idea who you will see, and it is muchasier to wait and go to the doctor. what are the policy implications of this? does is get john? is a lot more expensive to send someone to the right to zero and then to send them into a doctor's ffice for a visit. >> a goes to one of the planks of what president obama use in order to sell the law, that this would decrease the deficit. tens of millions of more people, they get is short and the defici will go down. there was a lot of gimmickry. now we know that one of the planks that people would not use emergency care as much if they are on insurance. turns out not to be true. melissa: thank you for your time >> thank-you. melissa: remember when former vice president dick cheney said this? >> what do you think of snow
