>> this president has failed. i understand he just gave an address today talking about all of the great things he has done to provide greater peace and reduce the threat from iran. that hasn't happened. this president failed to speak out when the dissidents took the street in tehran he had nothing to say. he fail to do put in place crippling sanctions in iran. he failed to say military options are on the table and in fact are in our hand. it's unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapon. if bar rock obama gets re-elected they will have a nuclear weapon and the world will change. >> president obama is echoing teddy roosevelt let's walk quietly but carry a big stick. some folks are concerned if there's an israeli attack on iran prices will go of gas will up even more. we are going to be talking more about that later on in the show.

general election you really have to be able to capitalize on the swing voters those independent voters. if you are too far to the right on the social issues sometimes you are going to be a little bit concerned about that. >> people wanted to see the softer side of romney and they did on mike huckabee's show. >> time now to "brew on this." this is a fun segment we are going to be doing for you every single morning. we are going to ask you to weigh in on our hot topics. comment on twitter page at friends first and facebook@fox friends first. and friends first at foxnews.com. >> the point of that is social media. be social with us. we want to hear what you have to say. here's today's rule on this topic. there's a new trend among parents holding back kids from kindergarten. you may have friends. why? this way their children they are older and ma sure befo-- mature
they go on. last night on 60 minutes. >> i would like them to be older and become a leader rather than a younger and be more of a follower. i don't think it's cheating the system. i don't whatever i think within my realm as a parent to make sure my child is as prepared as they can be for life challenges. >> and have every advantage. >> yes. >> that leads into our question of the day holding kids back to get ahead. is it going too far? we showed you video of little kids playing sports. that's another part of it. very often when the kids are a little bit older and bigger and they have an advantage in sports. same thing going into kindergartner. success snowballs. >> they had all of the kids born in january they were older than everyone else so the sports started in fall. the older kids were doing well and getting scholarships. there is a method to this. i was held back.

deficit, to avoid the longest period of unemployment since the great depression and suddenly decide rush limbaugh is the great national crisis of this week. you have this weird situation where president obama apologizes to islamic extremists while waging war against the catholic church. >> i was reflecting abuse of the church i believed in. i used to be tolerant of those beliefs. now when you have beliefs consistent with the church somehow or another you are out of the mainstream and that to me is a pretty sad situation when you can't have personally held beliefs. >> he makes a good point. the government p boefrnt backwards to be tolerant of minority groups when did we not become tol laerant of religious beliefs. >> thank you ladies foring with b us this morning. he says the government is tolerant of minority groups. when did the government stop being tolerant of what the
majority of people are in america christians or catholics? >> 90 percent of americans believe in god. one thing all americans believe in is the constitution which gives us the right to freedom of religion. obama's mandate original mandate which he had to backtrack was contradict tive to american values. catholic institutions were forced to provide free contraception to women. because of that backlash president obama is force to do change that policy. >> of course. why is the government forcing people to do something they don't believe in? >> they are doing no such thing ainsley. >> how can you say that? >> rick santorum believes contraception is wrong. he believes it is evil and that is absolutely fine. i have no problem with that. >> why where you making taxpayers pay for it? >> 99 percent of women use contraception. >> i get it. i get it you are right.
>> i believe that -- >> you are right. the cdc.gov says 99 percent of women 15-44 including catholic wo woman have used birth control at some point in their lives. the question here is when do we get into people's personal decisions? >> we are not. if rick santorum doesn't want to use contraception that is fine with me. that is a personal decision. when he wants to impose that belief on the 99 percent of women who use contraception and make it a government policy. >> we have to end it there. have a good one. the time is 5:28. wal-mart promised to florida give us a permit to build we will give you hundreds of jobs. why are so many people saying no? it's not even 6:00 a.m., yes, it's true. you are wide awake probably. think you are having a problem sleeping. stop leaviosing sleep over it. our sleep specialist is here.

netanyahu at the white house this morning. he is hoping tough talk abowilly him time before any possible strike against iran. yesterday the president was treated warmly at a meeting of apac. his talk was well received. >> i will take no options off the table. i mean what i say. >> but that hard line is a little more complicated than it sounds. the last thing the white house wants right now is to be dragged into a war with iran hoping economic sanctions will give a little more time to december wa dissuade any nuclear ambitions. they have at times had a chilly relationship. he liked what he heard yesterday. >> i very much appreciated the fact that president obama reiterated his position that iran must not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons and all
options are on the table. there is a potential danger in waiting too long to act. if force is ultimately required to take out iran's nuclear program, the longer we wait the more difficult that task becomes. >> thank you so much. 5:35 is the time now. now 5 at 5:30 the top stories making news at this hour. take a look at what tsa missed in a carry-on bag. it is the third security breech there in recent weeks. the woman was flagged for having drinks in her bag. they somehow allowed her to head to the gates with a knife. after realizing their mistake they waited 10 minutes to call the cops. the jetblue terminal was shut down for two hours until police found her and arrested her for carrying a concealed weapon. shocking statistics on cancer rates for hero police officers who worked at ground zero. the cancer rate for police officers who helped in recovery

can barely keep my eyes open. when i go to bed i can't fall asleep. what's the reason behind this? oo for many people they are having difficulty going to sleep because of racing thoughts. you can't understand their emotions and you can't the problems of the day while trying to fall asleep at night. put it in your journal to identify what is keeping you up at night. there are simple home devices you can use to help you track this and track the quality of sleep and keep you sleeping at night. one of them is a sleep track see vice you can use for four weeks and journal so we can figure out what is going wrong with your sleep. it's very helpful for me when they present with this information. >> how does that work and how
much does it cost? >> it is relatively inexpensive. cost around 20, $30. what they do is essentially put it on their sleeve while they are sleeping. you can download a phone app. it monitors how quiet your sleep is. if you have racing thoughts your sleep will be quiet. throu there is a card that will register your thoughts. >> a viewer says i get 4-5 hours of sleep during the week i catch up over the weekend 12-hours. i still find myself tireed by monday morning. >> unfortunately most of us don't understand the importance of sleep. you need on average 8 hours the range is 7-9. there is a timing. if you keep a consistent schedule your brain will help you get up in the morning and go to bed at night. what we do to meet demands and expectations we create sleep dep during the week and catch up on the weekend. you shifted the times your brain
will get you up and get you to bed at night. sunday night you will have a hard time falling asleep if you slept in on the weekend. it's not the job. you add justed your rhythm without realizing it. >> something a lot of the graveyard shifters know something about. >> and one more, we are not talking me. maybe i do, maybe i don't. i don't know. i wake myself mortgage fying none of the gimmicks work. do i have sleep apnea? >> there are simple cures. what happens is the muscles in the throat are relaxing and you get vibration of the air as the airway narrows. it is causing turbulence. that's what the snoring is. if the airway is starting to narrow you will hear it it collapses all of the way. that's an apnea. that's the problem if you are not breathing. your brain will jolt you out of sleep to get you breathing again. for someone who has a problem you want to reach out to a healthcare professional to determine do you or do you not
have sleep apnea. >> you need to look out for your health but also if you are falling asleep in church. >> it's not good. >> a little embarrassing. >> thank you so much. 5:55 is the time now. they are about to get tackled with a major punishment. up next a look at what's happening in today's future files. it's time to get scrambled up. fox and friends first will be right back.
