accordance with your will to live and reign forever and ever. the lord be with you always, and with your spirit. let us offer each other the sign of peace. now that wonderful moment where in churches all over the country and around the world we offer each other peace as a non catholic a part of the church experience which everybody seems to really love and understand. >> peace is such a gift from god and it means peace in the world of course. it also means peace of soul peace in our mind and in our spirit and the peace of christ is precisely that fruit of the love for mankind. he gave his life for us and the

(singing in foreign language) >> good morning from fox news, just two minutes past 6:00 on the east coast, past 11:00 a.m. in vatican city. i'm shepherd smith. if you're just waking unfor "fox & friends," they'll be with you shortly. but first a celebration from vatican city and around the world. the inauguration of pope francis. if you are just waking up, it has been, lest i repeat phao*eurbgs an absolutely -- repeat myself, a beautiful morning
3:05 am
in the vatican city. we witnessed the homily from pope francis. during this mass, the holy communion. our religion correspondent lauren green in rome for us this morning. lauren, people of the faith are very well familiar with this process. >> absolutely. i want to clarify something, that pope francis is not offering communion to the masses but only to the deacons there. estimates say that about 150,000 people in st. peter's square, that column-lined street leading to the vatican. there are priests going to the crowd that will venture communion to the people, to anybody who wants it. nobody will be turned away. those yellow and white umbrellas, those are indications to the people in the crowd that communion is being served and they
3:06 am
should head to one of those umbrellas if they want to be served. we're not quite sure how long the communion will last. but everybody will be served. and everybody who wants to partake of the meal can. >> father murray, father gerald murray from holy family church in new york with us this morning as well. the body of christ, the bread of heaven and catholics believe that there's a transformation that happens here. >> yes. it's called transsubstantiation where the substance of the bread and wine no longer are present once the pope says this is my body, this is my blood, we believe this to be the true presence of christ. when we receive holy communion, we don't receive merely a symbol of christ. we receive christ hymn. this is one of the key doctrines of our faith and the culmination of our act of worship at mass to participating both in the consecration and if we're able to, to receive holy
3:07 am
communion, which unites to the eucharistic savior. >> father jonathan morris, a fox news contributor, also with us in rome this morning. for those just waking up, father, the message of the morning from pope francis has been we are to protect each other. we are to love each other. we are to serve each other. we are to protect our children. and when our children grow up, they are to protect their parents. and in the end, as he has from the moment he emerged on the world stage, pope francis asked us all with humility to pray for him. >> shepp, i think that's a great summary, his message delivered not only in the homily but also in the simplicity of the eucharistic celebration we're witnessing right now. to add a couple of things to that, pope francis mentioned power is meant
3:08 am
for servants. he said the power too of the pope, of the papacy, he recognizes that present at this inaugural mass are people who recognize that he has great authority, including representatives from many delegations, state delegations as well as leaders of faiths from all around the world representing so many people who are not catholic. he's saying my power is meant for service. as you said so well, we have to take care of creation. and when he says creation, he mentioned very specifically that creation is not only the environment -- although he did use the word environment -- but it's also us. it's you and me, our brothers and sisters, it's moms and dads. that's part of our mission in life, to be of service to others.

>> we tried to get out of the way of the music from time to time. it's mid 50's in rome this morning and pretty steady wind at 15 to 20 miles an hour. you can see making for a beautiful sight with the flags there. the music is not one choir but two. lauren green with some details on those. one of them sang at the pap
3:12 am
al mass. >> this is the sistine chapel choir along with the sacred music choir. both of them are vatican choirs. interesting enough, the last time i heard the sistine chapel choir was in november when they premiered a work by monsignor raptsinger, the brother of pope benedict xvi. they are an incredible choir. you saw one of the members, sopranos singing earlier as part of the mass. they are an incredible choir. they have sung all over the world and they are known all over the world, and they sing in many sacred music festivals. they are mainstays of the vatican of st. peter's basilica as well. >> think of these tens of thousands of people in this eternal place with the most gorgeous architecture
3:13 am
you've ever seen. the fountains flowing, the organs playing, the choir singing, the clouds rolling in, enormous jumbotron stadium-style monitors so that all can seekers and this incredible music wafting through the corridors of the streets around vatican city. and people have come from far and wide, from all over europe and all over the world to celebrate on this day, the inauguration of pope francis. ♪

>> communion is being offered. before the -- the mass will end soon and before we turn things over to "fox & friends" on this tuesday morning, let's turn to father jonathan morris, a fox news contributor, for his thoughts on this morning. father? >> thank you, shepherd. good morning to everyone from rome. what we've seen here is classic pope francis, whom we're just getting to know, but it seems we know a lot more about him than perhaps previous popes just a few days into his pontiff cat. he's giving the message of power should be service. he's giving the message of love, goodness and tenderness. he's giving the message of if we want to imitate christ, we imitate him on the cross, meaning not in
3:17 am
high-power positions meant to glorify ourselves. he made a very specific indication that they informed everyone, all these delegations that lauren green will talk about as well, they informed everyone of what's happening but they didn't invite anybody. and that's very interesting because the vatican is pwaeug we're not endorse -- is saying we're not endorsing all these people's views coming to this event, even politicians from the united states who may call themselves catholic but are in contradiction to the catholic church's teaching. he says you're all -- it's happening, but we don't invite anyone. >> thank you. a look on the right-hand side of the screen, pictures from earlier, the video from earlier, as the
3:18 am
pope, a sight unfamiliar to us over the last two pontifficate. pope francis among the faithful and walking about with security there and his handlers there, in a moment we remember from this morning, as he came to kiss those on the side and wave to all and flags from all countries waving. and the message of love and hope, charity, peace, and a reminder to all of us that we are here to protect each other. in the spirit of christ. an absolutely beautiful very early morning in rome it was. father gerald murray with us. your thoughts on this morning. >> one of the titles we call the pope is "holy father. "i think this mass has shown to us he is the father. he considers himself to be responsible for this great
3:19 am
family of god and he does it with that tenderness of the father. he picked up a child earlier. he kissed a sick person. he referred in his homily to st. joseph, the model of christian fathers. fatherhood is important in our world. we need men who lead us to god. i think that is what we'll take away from this mass. he looks upon us as his spiritual children and calls us to be like christ, brothers and sisters, one to the other. ♪
3:20 am
>> this spirit of all of us together, the pope for the people and the people for the pope, really began on the world stage the first time we saw him as pope. remember these images, as pope francis came to the balcony? he asked that the people pray for him, as he did again this morning in st. peter's square. and as he did, he bowed to receive their prayer from the people. it was a touching moment for catholics and probably people of all faiths as he stood so quietly, his faith at such ease as the flashes went off in st. peter's square in what had been a very rainy day. it had rained nonstop for days on end, and the skies opened and cleared, and the people came out, and the pope bowed to receive the
3:21 am
prayers and blessings of the people. now the prayer after the communion happening live, and the pope saying "defend with unfailing protection, oh lord we pray, the family you have nourished with food from this altar as they rejoice at the solemnity of st. joseph and graciously keep your gifts among them. through christ our lord," said the pope.

3:32 am
employ the intercession of the virgin mary, peter and paul and st. francis that the holy spirit may accompany my ministry. and the pope said i ask all of you to pray for phaoefplt -- pray for me. for all of us at fox news, thanks for being with us this morning. "fox & friends" continues. >> you sure are looking good. thanks for joining us at fox first at ten. it is tuesday, march 19. i'm anna kooiman. the administration may not want to tell us what happened in benghazi, but they may have no choice. hillary clinton's e-mails have been hacked and the hacker sending them straight to congress. the latest on this development. >>steve: mayor michael bloomberg's latest health push. take away the cigarettes and put them so nobody can see them. we'll give you details. >>brian: it will take a ski buddy to tame the

tiger. tiger woods going public about his relationship with lindsey vonn. wait until you see what else the couple is revealing. >>steve: hillary's e-mail? >>brian: "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: great job, shepherd smith. beautiful. i hope you've been watching over the last couple of hours, the fox news coverage of the installation of the pope has been fantastic. >> i feel like i've been to mass this morning. an historic day for the billions of catholics and the world. the new pontiff installation mass just ended moments ago in a packed st. peter's square. >>steve: fox news contributor jonathan morris joins us live from rome. >>brian: does this remind you of pope benedict? >> yes and no.
3:34 am
yes because it is the same faith, yes because it is the same teaching. pope francis has a simple way about him. he's like a simple parish priest. although he's speaking to, i believe the vatican estimated 150,000 people this morning in the square, his message was so simple just like on sunday when he gave his first message. my nephew was there. after 15 minutes of his message, i said to him, what did you get out of this? 13 years old. he said god never gets tired of forgiving us. it's just that sometimes we get tired of asking for forgiveness. if that was a simple message on sunday, today's simple message was if you have power like i do, he said as pope, that's a service. i think that's also a message to the politicians. if you have power, it is about service to the common good. then he said take care of each other. he said twice -- and this is not something a speech writer would come up with. he said don't be afraid of goodness or even
3:35 am
tenderness. a very simple message. >>steve: it was a simple message. he made it clear, father jonathan, that he was there to serve the poorest, the weakest. he does stand in stark contrast to benedict who was more formal and more reserved. i saw some things i hadn't seen in a while. he was riding around in an open vehicle, stopped and kissed a baby, kissed somebody else who was suffering on the sidelines. he's become a real man of the people just in the last couple of days. >> you're absolutely right, steve. one thing that i think exemplified that, he chose on a sunday, instead of having mass in a papal apartment to go to santa ana and he was there for the people and he walked outside of the church and just greeted people like any parish priest was. it kind of was a call to me, you better make sure when you get back home,
3:36 am
father jonathan, that you say hello to everyone. it is a very simple, simple thing he's doing and he's doing it out of love. >>brian: i do worry about his security. can he possibly continue to be a man of the people in today's world? >> i think he just decided he's going to do it and see what happens. of course when he travels abroad -- for example, when he goes to the united states, then the security of that nation takes over because they don't want to have anything happen under their watch. but he has a lot of leeway, especially here in which he says this is what i'm going to do. he's 76 years old. he's got one lung. and he knows his mandate is to make some very significant changes within the curia, with the dysfunction in the central management. and he's choosing to do that based on not so much words, but by actions. his action is hey, guys, forget the clerical careerism. let's get down to the
3:37 am
nitty-gritty of service, love, kindness and tenderness. >>steve: today it starts. he has officially been installed and now he's our pope. father jonathan morris, great having you over the last two weeks or so guiding you through this process. >>brian: even prior to that. >> thanks, brian. thank you. >>steve: we should also point out that security-wise, everybody who was there in the square had been swept. >> it was interesting he was not in a bullet-proof automobile as in the past and going out there to meet his flock. you notice how simply he was dressed. he just had the wooden cross on. some of the cardinals dressed a lot more ornately this morning. we need to get to the rest of your headlines on this tuesday morning. an arrest in the death of a wall street reporter daniel pearl. they have arrested former militant leader abdul hagi.
3:38 am
our state department not confirming the rest and it is not clear what his role was in perle's death in 2002. major bailout backlash in cyprus. >> protest erupgt -- erupting over the euro zone bailout offer. the government of cyprus's central bank saying there should not be changes -- charges, rather, on accounts up to $129,000. they expect 10% of all deposits to be taken out when banks reopen on thursday. a russian energy company is looking to cash in on the gas problem is offering to bail out cyprus in exchange for the rights to explore for natural gas there. >> a stunning new report on mammograms this morning.
3:39 am
researchers saying 60% of abnormal mammograms turn out not to be cancer and false positives can lead to unnecessary biopsies or even surgery. this is taking a serious mental toll on some patients. women who received a false positive report anxiety and depression three years after learning they're cancer-free. don't even look at this. one week after mayor bloomberg lost his fight to ban big sodas, now he wants to ban the display of all tobacco products in stores. business owners would have to keep cigarettes under the counter or behind a curtain. this would make new york city the only city in this nation to do so. >> those are your headlines. >>steve: keep them in a brown paper wrapper. now we've got a story for you about a real political hacker. he's referred to -- or she is referred to as goose-ifer and has hacked into the friends accounts
3:40 am
of the bush family and now an equal-opportunity hacker, now he has hacked into the personal account of sidney blumenthal, a longtime bill clinton and hillary clinton confidante who got his aol account compromised going back to 2005. what he's done now is he has distributed to people on capitol hill and journalists four memos that were sent to hillary rodham clinton concerning benghazi, among other things. pwroeupl i'm -- >>brian: i'm a little torn by this. if you're going to take this information and run with it, should we publish what happened on the bush personal e-mails? should we get those e-mails that were let out by that hacker in iraq that let everybody's e-mails out from the state department? but it could reveal the situation in that the cables never reached hillary clinton's desk could have actually reached her desk if she was somehow
3:41 am
interacting and made it clear in this exchange. i think it is a precedent. you start looking at hacked e-mails among these congressmen, when they get hacked, is it open season? >> you wonder how the chips are going to continue to fall here. there is an elaborate scheme by this hacker who has been using screen grabs and copying and pasting rather than downloading attachments. it's not just colin powell. the bush family we mentioned. also a top united nations official. are there going to be more people we're going to be hearing from? are we going to start to see more information come from hillary clinton's e-mail? >>steve: it would be great if the obama administration simply released the information and told us what was actually happening. that would be great. but so far they have not been very forthcoming. and with a compliant mainstream media, people aren't asking a lot of
3:42 am
questions. while the smoking gun is actually reporting the story about how blumenthal's e-mail account had been hacked and how the four e-mails that had been sent to hillary have now been distributed to members of congress and members of the media, they haven't revealed what's in the memo. >>brian: there is no information that's inside. you could say it would be great for the obama administration to come forward. but nobody thinks that personal interaction should be public. when you e-mail your personal friend and attorney, you don't want that to be published. >>steve: remember what happened with wikileaks and julian as sang and the guys at wikileaks, as soon as they got their hands on the stuff at the bush white house, let's put it out there for everybody to see. it's interesting to see what the people in the press, the restraint they're using. >>brian: they used restraint with the bush family. >>steve: that was
3:43 am
published. >>brian: i didn't see a lot of information about it. >>steve: it will be interesting to see if this will come out of the four. one was labeled confidential and the time stamp was the day after the incident in benghazi. last night after the briefing jay carney was asked whether or not the president of the united states met with any of the benghazi survivors and he said, i don't know, which was weird. >> do you know if president obama had a chance to meet with or speak with the survivors of benghazi? >> we don't talk about specifics in terms of the president's visits to walter reed or elsewhere. i don't have an answer to that question. >> we've been hearing a lot from senator lindsay graham of south carolina making his statements, how does it make sense that we find out every single detail about the raid on bin laden's
3:44 am
compound that makes president obama look good but not when something goes bad. >>brian: nearly 40 million people facing three major snowstorms around this country. maria molina is outsidetracking the storms with her government-issued outer wear. >> i wish it was. good morning. good to see you. good morning everyone. it's a little breezy here in new york city. definitely on the chilly side as well. we had a storm system that produced a lot of snow across places in the northeast and actually severe weather. we had a confirmed tornado in humphreys county in tennessee, maximum sustained wind at about 10 miles an hour. incredible -- at about 105 miles an hour. in millford, connecticut, snow accumulated during the overnight hours and slick roads and snow in altoona, pennsylvania, a lot of snowfall, accumulation of several inches. today we could be seeing up to a foot of snow across
3:45 am
maine, parts of new hampshire, upstate new york. a lot of snow to talk about today. the wind is going to be another concern. coastal areas should be seeing rain mixing in so that should limit snowfall amounts, similar to what we saw across new york city last night. back inside. >>steve: maria molina tracking the lousy weather a day or so before spring starts. >>brian: right after voters in colorado and washington approved making pot legal, the president said he wouldn't prosecute pot heads in those states -- if i could use a slang term in those states. >>steve: we wanted to know if he'll do the same thing when it comes to gun rights. judge napolitano is here and we're going to weigh in next. >> it is official, tiger woods is dating lindsey vonn. can the ski bunny tame the tiger? e-mail your comments to "fox & friends." >>brian: he's playing >>brian: he's playing better already. what's droid-endurance ?

3:50 am
enforcing federal laws against the recreational use or any use, for that matter, of colorado and washington. that's because in those states it is now illegal for employees of the state -- that would be not just administrators and bureaucrats, but police -- to help the feds enforce federal law. and what most people might be surprised to know is the federal government does not have the person power and resources to enforce all federal laws on its own. it needs the assistance of state and local police as well. they don't have that in colorado and washington because marijuana is lawful there. so it might be impractical and be too costly for the feds to enforce it. that's one of the reasons he's backing off. will he do the same on guns? i don't think so. i think that he and his dim are ideologically wedded to what in my opinion is an unconstitutional and absurd view that the government can limit our right to self-defense.
3:51 am
so the federal government with guns in a state, will it need the assistance of state police to enforce those regulations? yes. that's where we are on that. >>steve: and the reason a number of states are trying to come up with this new gun legislation is because they see washington, d.c. and they're worried about a gun grab? >> correct. the states -- our home state of new jersey could not, for example, use the police to frustrate federal law enforcement but it could say to state and local place you will not cooperate. that will make federal stphoerplt of tighter -- make federal enforcement of tighter federal gun laws nearly impossible. >>steve: we'll find out what they do do because of course the federal government has bigger fish to fry. >> where did kilmeade go? >>steve: i don't know. straight ahead on this tuesday morning.

4:03 am
huntsville news anchor is being proposed on live -- right now. (scream). >> brian: that is great. >> steve: oh, man. meet the anchor who got the surprise of her life on live television. >> brian: that is awesome. >> steve: it is. "fox & friends" hour two for tuesday starts right now. that's why you got to be really careful. we're very trusting of the people behind the scenes who put things in the teleprompter. >> what's funny is it took her a second, you know, fox anchor is being proposed -- oh it came out and then she realized. that's what happens with breaking news. >> brian: you see the guys leave like thank goodness this isn't me. i am out of here! >> how do you know they didn't have wedding rings on? >> steve: clearly the whole
4:04 am
station was in on it except her because her co-anchors got out of the way. the producers had to know. somebody to put it in the teleprompter. we'll tell you her story, it's a good one. >> big day for her and big day fort billions of catholics around the world. you're looking live at pope francis greeting the faithful as we speak. officially beginning his ministry this morning. the inauguration mass held earlier today in a packed saint peter's square. >> brian: father jonathan morris joins us live from rome. what's the mood now? i understand it's at least nicer out today weather wise. >> it is a beautiful day. there are 150 to 200,000 people estimated by the vatican to be in the square for this inauguration mass of pope francis. as we've come to know him over the last few days, this ceremony itself was simpler than ceremonies in the past, but also his message was super simple. it was this, power is for
4:05 am
service. secondly, don't be afraid of goodness and even tenderness, he said. then he remitted that again. don't be afraid of goodness and even tenderness, saying take care of each other. that's what the christian message is about. it's not about clerical careerism or about selfishness or about any of that. it's about serving others and about loving god. >> steve: what's interesting about him, and he is a simple man, as we have learned over the last week or so, but he's a man who lives the gospel. for so many catholics around the world, this is the guy who they can look to right now. >> you're absolutely right, steve. who is a surprise candidate, no doubt. he was older than what the assumptions were saying that the candidate must be and he's also -- he also was in the lead, the runner-up so to speak, in the last conclave, according to well-founded rumors. so he was not expected by most analysts to web. yet he's come onto the scene and
4:06 am
blown people away, gog a local parish church within the vatican on sunday and doing mass and then coming out and greeting everybody as they walked out. freaking out the security and he's telling us, actions more than words, this is what it's all about. it's not about the trappings. it's about service. >> steve: sure. are people already talking about changes he might make? >> they are. one of the reasons he was elected based on the assumptions of very well-informed analysts, is really to clean up the dysfunction within the roman curia. more than anything, that that is his mandate. and he's doing that beginning by just saying guys, if you think is all about you, it's not. if you think it's all about me, it's not. it's about service of the people. so people within the vatican curia know that there is going to be changes and we'll see those changes beginning with who is selected by him to be secretary of state, like chief
4:07 am
of staff and head of the diplomatic court. so there will be some big changes. >> steve: they're coming. father jonathan morris live in the eternal city, thank you very much. great coverage today. >> brian: if they make you an offer, we will match it. okay? >> you're not going anywhere. >> i'm going back to new york. i promise you. >> brian: good. >> safe travels. five minutes after the hour. we'll get to the rest of your tuesday morning headlines. developing overnight, we need to tell but an arrest in the death of wall street reporter daniel pearl. according to pakistani officials, they arrested a former militant leader. our state department not confirming the arrest at this time. it's unclear what his role was in pearl's death in 2002. khalid sheikh mohammed claimed responsibility for the murder and british foreign militant sheik was sentenced to death for killing pearl. classes are back in session today at the university of central florida after a massacre there was averted. police say james oliver seevakumanan was planning to use
4:08 am
an arsenal of home made bombs in and a rifle in a disturbing attack on fellow students. the first part of his plot, to pull the fire alarm, which he did. the second part, attack his classmates as they gathered outside the dorm rooms. but his roommate alerted the police and when cops closed in, seevakumanan took his own life. >> really chaotic. he had a gun. it was scary. >> we knew something was wrong because we saw policemen with a big rifle and everything. we're like okay something is going on here. >> seevakumanan was in the process of being kicked out of his dormitory. university police say he had written out a time line and an elaborate plan for how to hurt the greatest number of people. six minutes after the hour. major bailout backlash in cyprus. protesting over the bailout offer of $13 billion in exchange
4:09 am
for bank account taxes. the governor of cyprus' central bank saying there should not be charges on accounts up to $129,000. he expects 10% of all the deposits to be taken out when banks reopen thursday. in a russian energy company is looking to cash in on all the mess. they're offering a to bail out cyprus in exchange for the rights to explore for natural gas. is this shocking? a historian revealing the wright brothers were actually second in flight. he says whitehead, a german, who emigrated to connecticut, made the first powered and controlled flight two years earlier. historians at the smith sonnian say not so fast. they believe the original photo of the event is way too blurry. those are your husband headlines. i'm from north carolina, so i'm claiming first if state. >> brian: all right. 7 minutes after the top of the hour. let's talk about the benghazi andity latest. we find out president of the
4:10 am
united states did not find out, did not make an effort to talk to the survivors that we know of of the benefiting massacre that day. we do know that very few people outside the secretary of state have talked to them and senator lindsey graham among the people over the weekend who say he has learned they are intimidated not to come forward. now we find out after hillary clinton's testimony six weeks ago that when she said the cables that came in for me never got up to me, well, we might find out thanks to a hacker, that hillary clinton did or did not find out about the attack on 9-11 and the dangers on 9-11-13 because her personal e-mail has been leaked because it's a mailbox is out. five are out. >> steve: that's right. the hacker has somehow got into sydney blumenthal's aol account, i believe it was last thursday, and friday morning, sydney tried to get into it, it was locked. he called aol and they said,
4:11 am
you've been compromised. he reset it. what's interesting is the hacker went in to his e-mail and looked for things that had attachments, found four of them or five of them, regarding hillary clinton. they were word documents. he copied them, put them on a new document and sent screen grabs out to a bunch of journalists and politicians. the memos sent out are to hillary regarding libya and benghazi. we may find out what she knew, even though she has not been forth coming. >> sydney blumenthal a former white house aide during the clinton administration and a friend apparently of hillary clinton as well, this same hacker has apparently also been involved in a scandal involving colin powell, relatives of the bush family, and even top united nations official. >> steve: if anybody has any juicy hillary clinton e-mails, it would be sydney blumenthal. >> brian: i still think it should go forward. it's one of these things that's
4:12 am
got to stop. we got to stop the cyber attacks. if you start building off that, i think you'll start a whole retaliation then for political gain. meanwhile, let's talk about what's happening on capitol hill with the budget because it is the number one story as we try to get a continuing resolution to fund the government through at least september. the budgets have gone out. paul ryan said here is mine. take a look. i balance it in ten years. chris van hollen on the democratic side said i have a better idea. in the house, we like to have our version and it will be $1.2 trillion in new taxes, 200 billion in stimulus. now, ladies and gentlemen, if you want a democratic house in 2014, that's what your country is going to look like. >> steve: later today the house of representatives is going to consider paul ryan's budget, plus they're going to consider five alternative budgets. one, patty murr i wouldn't he -- murray, the democrat senator from her state. the congressional black caucus', progressive caucus' budget, the republican study committee
4:13 am
budget, which balances the budget in five years, not in ten years like paul ryan's. and chris van hollen's budget as well. meanwhile, the haggling continues in washington. the charm offensive of the president, he was being honest, wasn't he? he really was trying to charm the republicans. yet, brit hume was on last night with bret baier on his former program and said whether it worked, probably not. here is brit. >> it was a remarkably sudden conversion by the president from an attitude of, you know, up yours, i don't need you, to i want to get together and talk with all of you. of course, the republican leaders in congress who are smart enough not to act skeptical and felt this was fine and good and the more the better. but i think in the end, you have to ask yourself this question, brett, and it is simply this: is it politely president obama will make any major concessions
4:14 am
on the entitlement programs without more new taxes? and is it -- the other side of that is, will republicans be willing to go along with more new taxes to get reforms in the entitlement programs? i think, unless you can answer yes to one of those questions or both of them, the chances of a deal in the end seem to be a little remote despite all of the atmospherics we're seeing now. >> with a could that even mean for the economy, balancing it by 2023 would be great. but i read a piece this morning, mentioning that it would be great 'cause it would ease fears of future tax, so more companies would begin investing a bit more and consumers potentially would start consuming more as well. >> brian: by the way, senator warner and senator dick durbin cote say we need entitlement reform. before the charm offensive, you never got that. >> steve: but it's got to be significant. not just around the edges. that's where the fight comes in. meanwhile, 12 minutes after the top of the moment with the way,
4:15 am
paul ryan will be joining us live coming up at 8:30 eastern time on your channel for news. >> straight strait from the horse's mouth. >> brian: good job. tick him off, good move. coming up straight ahead. >> steve: we are cutting our defense budget, but increasing our humanitarian missions in third world countries. where are the nation's priorities added? >> and he got $2 million of stimulus money to create green batteries. one problem, they haven't stimulated a thing. where did all that cash go [ male announcer ] this is kevin.

4:19 am
merits of the war, no one can debate where our military stands now. look at the massive budget cuts. but our next guest says we're cutting humanitarian missions and that's going into the pentagon budget and delusional to think we'll have the same fighting force. mallory is the author of this book. what's in the defense budget that you think will upset some people? >> bench budget is loaded with all sorts of stuff. nation building, disaster relief, humanitarian aid. >> brian: hasn't it always been there? >> it's gotten bigger and bigger. we ask our defense department to do all sorts -- our men and women under arms, they'll do whatever we ask them to do. but we ask them to do things that are not really war fighting. our war fighting capabilities are only part of the defense budget. and more and more all these other items, like ferries around executives and legislative branch members along with their
4:20 am
minyons is all stuck in our defense budget. >> brian: nation building, that's what happens. after saddam is you kind of help build a nation, setting up systems for reconnecting the electricity, getting the water flowing. afghanistan as well. don't you think that belongs in the budget? >> absolutely not. war fighting is what our defense budget should be for. it should be for protecting our nation against bad guys and bad countries. we're more and more we're leading it up with all sorts of other stuff. >> brian: who do you think should be doing this then if our country decides humanitarian missions are worth our time, if we want to transport our officials? >> we should set up separate areas of our government to do that. remember, a lot of what our defense budget is is foreign policy now. it's not defense. it's not war fighting. we're not using our men and women under arms to really protect us. look at our defense budget as a
4:21 am
policy against bad guys. we're taking a lot of that insurance money and using it for other things, other things which are not going to help us if these bad guys come after us. >> brian: if the pentagon has their chance to cut, this is the type of stuff they will cut. >> they're not allowed to do that. this administration, with all their transparencies, not going to let us know where the money and how the money is being spent. >> brian: his book is called " shadow boxes." >> why to see you. >> brian: tv anchors are supposed to be ready for anything. but how do you get ready for this? >> we have break news to report. fox 54 has just learned a huntsville news anchor is being proposed on live -- right now. >> brian: wow. meet the anchor who got the surprise of her life on live television. on a serious note, the sequester is putting the usda workers on

4:27 am
>> we're basically cutting some of the very vital services of the agriculture department, but we're keeping going this outreach of the food stamp program. >> anna: the usda is stressing this is not meant for illegal immigrants, but take a look at the numbers. >> so so what? it was 425,000 legal immigrants, legal, okay, on the food stamp program in 2001. it's now 1.23 million. these are legal immigrants. i'm an immigrant. should we really be offering a food stamps to immigrant as soon as is that what immigrants come here for? why can't we have some kind of cut or reduction in that program, especially the outreach in mexico when we're cutting meat inspections and threatened with e.coli outbreaks and salmonella? >> steve: it's all about priorities. speaking of meat inspections, let's talk about egging inspections. there is a possibility that after many, many decades of having the white house easter egg roll, now it sounds like the
4:28 am
white house is trying to scare people, we might have to cut the egg roll short, too. >> the white house has sent out a memo to the ticket holders for the easter egg roll on april 1 saying it may be canceled because of budget cuts. here is another example of targeted pain. the president said his hands are tied. he's got to make these cuts 'cause they're across the board so we get cuts maybe in the easter egg roll and the white house tours. >> brian: we saw ed henry asking tough questions. he got tough questions from the press corps said why are you canceling this? how much does it cost for the president to go campaign and on vacation and golf? they're having a hard time with these symbolic cuts. >> but the president has dug himself into a hole. he's threatened armageddon. he said pain is going to hurt. and look -- can he retreat? can he say, maybe i can spread the money around a little bit so we don't have to cut the easter egg roll.
4:29 am
that would be a huge retreat. >> steve: it would be a bad yoke if they don't have the egg roll. >> that was as bad as i've ever heard. >> anna: i had one for the last story. trim the fat and not the muscle. you like that one? >> that was awful. >> anna: equally bad. >> steve: always egg citing when stewart joins us. >> that was the worst pro mow my show has ever -- promo my show has ever seen. >> brian: the worst one would be don't watch. >> no, coming from steve that, would be brilliant. >> brian: coming up, an alarming number of women going under the knife for breast cancer and it's not necessary. the mammograms are wrong. >> anna: what would do you if you found a gadget? would you return it? i'm keeping them honest in the great state of texas. see what happens next [ male announcer ] in blind taste tests, even ragu users chose prego.

5:04 am
first official day of his ministry. biden attending the new pontiff's inauguration mass early this morning at saint peter's square. fox news contributor gives us the play by play. father jonathan, you have an american president at an international event. >> that's right. the vatican did something very interesting this time around. they said, we are letting everyone know that it's the heads of states and all of these delegations here, we're letting them know what's happening. they are all welcome. but we're not inviting anyone. what they wanted to avoid is the misunderstanding of hey, the pope is endorsing everyone, every one of these leaders' policies. so they're saying all are welcome, but nobody is invited. very interesting. >> steve: robert mugabi, a strong man, guy a lot of people don't like around the world, he showed up, right? >> he does. he does show up at these things. he likes showing up at the vatican. the message of pope francis to all of these leaders and to all
5:05 am
of us was very simple today. that is power. power of politics and the power of the papacy should be all about service. power should be all about service. service to the common good. and then service to our individual neighbor, our brothers and sisters. a very simple and strong message. also to some of these characters that you mentioned. >> anna: simplity seemed to be the tone of the morning all the way from the way pope francis was dressed with his simple wooden cross that some of the cardinals were dressed more nicely than him. he comes in, he's on an open air jeep. he's not in a bullet proof automobile or anything like that. talk a little bit about being able to watch these moments unfold as he's kissing babies and blessing people in wheelchairs. >> right. he's made a conscious decision, i'm going to be who i am. how would i be in argentina? how was i in argentina? i'm going to be like that as pope. he's referring to himself very
5:06 am
often as not only pope u about a bishop of rome. he's saying, if i greeted people outside of my church in argentina, i'm going to do that in the vatican. did he that. he came out of this little church and he allowed all the people who were attending mass to come and greet him. and then he walked over to the people who were just showing up. it freaks out the vatican security, no doubt, but he's giving a very simple message and that is power is about service. i know i can learn a lot from that and i think whether you're part of the clergy or not, my goodness, our relationships, if they're all about service, all about love, and as he said today, do not be afraid of goodness! do not be afraid of tenderness. a very simple message that awful us can understand. >> steve: a simple man, a humble man who now has a really big job. father jonathan, thank you very much for joining us over the last week or so. >> thanks. see you soon. >> anna: four minutes after the hour now.
5:07 am
a developing story overnight, an arrest in the death of wall street reporter daniel pearl. according to pakinstani officials, they have arrested former militant leader abdul hai. our state department not confirming the arrest at this time. it's unclear what his role was in pearl's death in 2002. khalid sheikh mohammed claimed responsibility for the murder. british born militant was sentenced to death for killing pearl. a massacre averted in florida. james oliver seevakumanan was planning to use an arsenal of home made bombs and a rifle in a disturbing plot to kill fellow students. he had written out a time line and an elaborate plan to hurt the greatest number of people. the first part, to pull the fire alarm, which he did. the second part, attack his classmates as they gathered outside their dormitories. and his roommate alerted the cops. when police closed in,
5:08 am
seevakumanan took his own life. >> really chaotic. he had a gun. it was pretty scary. >> we knew something was wrong because we saw policemen with big rifles and everything. so we're like, something is going on here. >> anna: seevakumanan, 30, was in the process of being kicked out of his dorm. major bailout backlash in cyprus. protests erupting over the euro zone's bailout offer of $13 billion in exchange for bank account taxes. the governor of cyprus' central bank saying there should not be charges on accounts up to $129,000. he expects 10% of all deposits to be taken out when banks reopen thursday. in a russian energy company is looking to cash in on all the mess. they're offering to bail out cyprus in exchange for the rights to explore for natural gas there. >> brian: ton of natural gas down there. >> anna: don't even look at them.
5:09 am
one week after mayor bloomberg lost his fight to ban big soda, now he wants to ban the display tobacco products in stores. business owners who have to keep tobacco products under the counter. this would make new york city the only city in the nation. >> brian: i think people would know when they walk into a store and know if they smoke or not. how many walk in and say, i think i'll start smoking today. >> anna: at the same time, the convenience of having it there, sometimes i don't think i really need gum or a candy bar and if it's right there, it's an impulse buy. >> steve: we're lucky laura ingraham joins us right now from our nation's capitol. how are you? >> when you go into a 7-11 and you're getting a big gulp and say would you like a carton of marlboro with that, does it really work? happy feast of st. joseph to all of you. great to see you. >> steve: thank you very much. we just told people the last
5:10 am
hour out to valencia where they were celebrating it in grand style. >> big day. >> steve: it is indeed. big day for hillary clinton, i'm sure she's sweating because apparently sydney blumenthal, a long-time clinton cavitiant. -- confidante. northbound has hacked his aol company and he has distribute to do members of the press and to capitol hill as well. memo sent to hillary regarding libya and benghazi. >> the hacking controversy is interesting because it's hillary, of course, and the congress has been trying to get as much information as possible about what happened on that horrible night, of course, at our diplomatic compound in benghazi. it's a federal crime to hack an individual's e-mail account. i find this whole hacking thing to be so disturbing, the federal government, of course, is scrambling to try to find the identity of gusafer. looked like some were coming from a russian domain. but that doesn't mean anything
5:11 am
because they can reroute traffic, internet traffic to dummy addresses. but the larger question of benghazi, i know you played the exchange with james rosen yesterday with jay carney. again, asking has the president met with any of the benghazi survivors? the question was i believe raised with hillary clinton before she left office. these are real questions. so the hacking is terrible, federal crime, it should be prosecuted. but the information, not classified information, shouldn't be given to the public. but information about really what happened that night, we deserve to know that. >> steve: absolutely. >> the dead deserve to know that. so wholey apart from this and we'll see where the investigation goes, this information not classified has to come out. >> brian: jay carney is bobbing and weaving over the country. has the president ever talked to anyone? has the president talked to any survivors. here is what he said. >> to your knowledge, has president obama made any effort
5:12 am
to meet with or speak with any of the benghazi survivors himself? >> you know, we don't talk about specifics in terms of the president's visits to walter reed. >> or elsewhere? >> i don't have anything for you onow the answer to that question. >> anna: you would think that would be one of the first things the president would do following the incident that happened on september 11 is meet with these folks, especially since we're told there were requests for additional security that appears to not have come to fruition for them. >> exactly. we actually don't even know what the president was doing that night on 9-11. i guess he was in the white house. he had a half hour conversation about benghazi, never spoke again with the defense secretary, did not speak directly with hillary clinton, we were told. all of this is very strange. the hacking element is just one more bizarre turn on a story that i hope the press doesn't give up on and major kudos to james rosen for continuing to press this. so many fox viewers and people across this country really want
5:13 am
answers. >> steve: absolutely. we want answers, how exactly is the sequester thing going to impact us? they've sawed off an enormous 2% from the amount of money that the u.s. government spends. now the very latest is -- we heard this from the government. the food inspectors, meat inspectors, we're probably going to -- won't do as many inspections as they have. yet at the same time, we apparently are going to keep a food stamp promotion program that we've got with mexico intact. >> well, are we surprised? the only thing i'm not surprised about is that maybe michelle couldn't have addressed the food deserts in mexico, so let's move to mexico. bring it to the united states and continue the tour. again, this is just one more example of the federal government missing the common sense here. and again, giving carrots to
5:14 am
people to come here legally or be part of the country where the original understanding of immigration was, we welcome immigrants. but you must be self-sufficient. we didn't want to bring in more wards of the state in our immigration policy. that was always at the core of our policy. it's not just president obama. george bush is the one who really got this program going. the meetings started in 2008. they were most frequent in 2008, frankly. and now moving forward during this scare quester where we're having to worry about tsa and medical issues and the elderly getting care, the veterans getting care. this is lunacy. it shouldn't be happening. >> brian: i tell you what, if you look at three major poll, the president is down between 45 and 47% approval rating. since the whole sequester came down. now the easter egg hunt, which is lunacy, we can't afford the easter egg hunt now. totally -- this is one of his biggest misplays. >> i always like see you.
5:15 am
you do great things with spoons, by the way. i love how you direct the wooden eggs across -- >> brian: i stick them up my nose. >> i was wondering with justin bieber is coming this year. it always used to be eggs. i'm old, so i worked in the reagan administration right out of college. in 1987, '88, the easter egg roll was a big deal. but it wasn't hollywood comes to washington. there were a few, i guess, celebrity types, but it is basically "american idol" now at the white house. so maybe the easter egg roll should be bring some kids, underprivileged kids to the white house, let them push the eggs around, read some stories and then it doesn't have to be a star-studded event that cost hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more. >> anna: bieber fever this morning. >> yeah. >> steve: laura, thank you very much. she's going to do her radio show in 45 minutes from right now all across the country. >> thank you. >> brian: what's really happening behind closed doors of the obama administration's charm offensive? up next, a republican senator who attended two of those closed
5:16 am
door meetings. >> anna: and what is so dangerous about cupcakes and hugs at school? you're about to find out. >> steve: you don't know? if you think most hybrids are a bit under sized then this will be a nice surprise. meet the 5-passenger ford c-max hybrid. c-max come. c-max go. c-max give a ride to everyone it knows. c max has more passenger volume than competitor prius v and we haven't even mentioned... c-max also gets better mpg. say hi to the super fuel efficient ford c-max hybrid.

5:19 am
>> brian: glad you're up. president obama has spent the last few weeks sit down with congressional republican senatial republicans and talking about maybe getting some type of grand bargain. it's called the charm offensive by some. he claims to be looking for a bipartisan solution to the many budget problems we've been facing for the last four years. joining us now, a man straight from the business world to the senate seat, senator ron johnson. you were at both of those meetings. we heard about substance and directness. you believe the president knows exactly what he needs to do with entitlements. he's just not saying it. correct? >> good morning, brian. yeah. he laid out very accurately really the priority of the problems, health care spending,
5:20 am
medicare. it was interesting because he made the point that part of the problem in reforming medicare is that americans pay one dollar in, but they're going to get $3 out in benefits and he went on it say but americans don't understand that, so my input back to him was, mr. president, you have the bully pull bit. if you start informing the american people, start preparing them by twining the problem, letting americans know how deep these problems are, how severe they are, that's the first step in really starting to solve them. so i'm certainly going to know the president is serious when we hear president obama and democrats start properly defining the problem. >> brian: listen, how much of these meetings was personal where he said, i don't like the way you guys talk about me and you said you don't like the way he talks about you? >> not a whole lot. it was a pretty frank discussion. also very accurately laid out the politics. the difficulty he has in his caucus, the difficulty we have. so we have to shift par dimes here -- paradigms. we should scrap the tax code. start over.
5:21 am
do a paradigm shift in terms of tax reforms. but each problem is enormous. handle them separately. social security, medicare, other mandatory spending. if you start talk being a grand bargain y think that's possible. >> brian: this is where i see hope. when i saw dick durbin on sunday, when i saw senator mark warner, democrat, a few days prior say entitlement reform is where it really has to start, i see a shift from those old, he said, he said, type attitudes. >> brian, there is an awful lot of discussion after this election. you had 2010, we won. 2012, he won. the elections are over. now it's time to govern. these are enormous problems. i'm sensing the democrats that they may be getting serious about trying to work with us to start solving these problems. that would be a good thing. >> brian: but you will not agree to a rate increase in taxes, i understand? >> listen, he's already got his tax increase. each one of these problems should be handled separately. we shouldn't talk about tax reform when talking about how do you save medicare and social
5:22 am
security. they're totally separate issues. that's the only way to move forward successfully. >> brian: after easter, he'll give his deadline and maybe we'll find out if tale eel take that private discussion public like you want. senator johnson, always great to talk to you. >> have a great day. >> brian: straight ahead, the ratings for "the bible" mini series are through the roof. they're divine. what's all the buzz about? executive producers, married couple mark burnett, row in a downey here next. and who spends more to get ready for date night? men or women? the answer might surprise you ♪ ♪ if loving you is wrong

5:30 am
taking off. >> it was a still night. it has to be mentioned, it was so calm. so when this wind blew, it was as if we just turned on the fans or the wind machines. it was like a supernatural wind blew across the desert. >> everybody knew it. everybody that night, a few hundred people looked at each other like, whoa, that's the holy spirit. >> the spirit blows like the wind. >> steve: what about the missing >> oh, yeah. we had a large reservoir that was standing in for the sea of galilee. a costume went missing and we just assumed it was gone forever. and some local found it miles down river and brought it back to us. we were so grateful to get it. >> and not knowing why she returned. and also there were snakes. >> brian: there was a couple? >> the snakes, symbolic of satan throughout the bible. we prayed that the crucifixion scene would be safe for

he's on on the job, but presidet obama still knows how to kick back. this official white house photo. what were they talking about? this is late february. i guess two weeks ago. what could have been so funny? might have been getting warmed up to meeting chairman ryan and in the awful office for lunch? >> steve: what a coincidence. joining us via satellite from our nation's capitol is the house budget committee chairman, congressman paul ryan of the great state of wisconsin. congressman, good morning to you. >> good morning, steve, brian, and anna, nice to be with you. >> steve: it's great to have you. so you're going to kick off today. patty murray, the senator from great state of washington, has sent over the democrats' proposal. i understand later today you're going to officially start working on the budget and you're also going to consider five alternative budgets as well. what's interesting is there is one out there by the republican study committee that actually balances the budget in four
5:37 am
years rather than ten years like yours does. do you like that idea? >> sure, i do. one problem with the baseline is it brings the deficit later on of the we looked at the budget and realized we could probably balance in five years. the problem is with the way the numbers work is it brings you back out of balance soon thereafter. what we wanted to do is have a credible plan that got us to balancing, got us into surplus. that's what our budget does. there is something unique in the baseline where deficits go down to the mid part of the next ten years and then go right back up. what we want to do is get them on a downward path and keep them down. we not only balance the budget, we go into surpluses and pay off the debt. >> brian: here is chris van hollen. he seems to disagree with everything you say. here is an example. >> i'm used to that. >> let me focus first on what our budget focuses on, which is not just economic growth in jobs
5:38 am
in the future, but jobs in economic growth now and in the future. this republican budget is not balanced in ten years. >> brian: is he right? is it not in balance? >> no, it does balance in ten years. they're throwing new meaning to the word balance. they say they're taking a balanced approach. the problem is their balanced approach never, ever balances the budget. from what murray and van hollen's standpoint, a balanced approach is another tax increase, only followed up with more spending increases. they think that's the balanced approach. we actually balance the budget by cutting spending and not raising taxes. spending grows 3.4% a year instead of 5%. it balances because of that. so if you look at the four different budgets we're look at, the murray and value locallen and other two democratic budget, they have one thing in common, massive new tax increases, big deep cuts to national security, only surpassed by net spending increases. all the democratic budgets have one thing, more taxes, higher
5:39 am
spending, never balancing the budget. we think that's irresponsible. we think it's going to hurt the economy. we're balancing the budget to get a health year economy and create more jobs. we want to give our kids a debt free nation and get government to live within its means. that's what really balanced means. not raising taxes and spending. >> brian: you think you can get something done in conference from what you've seen of patty murray's -- what she's submitting? it doesn't seem like you can. i don't see how you can do this. >> you would not conclude that by looking at these two different approaches. we're cutting spending. we're getting reforming government. we're opening up energy exploration, we're reforming the tax code. we're not raising taxes. we repeal obamacare. yes, we still do not like this law. we think it will be a terrible outcome of this law. it hasn't been fully implemented yet. it's got two years to go. we think we should repeal it and replace it. we haven't changed our opinion on that. if you look at these two
5:40 am
budgets, we're two worlds apart. we're on different planets. but at least they're passing a budget in the senate. at least for the first time in four years, they're passing something. that gives me hope that the vehicle, the process of bringing a budget through is still there so that if we ever do find consensus, consensus on debt reduction, deficit reduction, we at least have the process through which we can drive that consensus, we're a long ways to go to get there. >> anna: we sure hope it happens quickly so we can get our economy going in the right direction as soon as possible. congressman, i want to talk about the cpac over the weekend, a few standouts, at the time cruz, rand paul winning the straw poll. what do you think the future of the rnc needs to be to improve? >> steve: in particular because yesterday reince previn came out with the autopsy of what happened in 2012. what do you think? >> well, i do remember the election. i haven't read the autopsy of the rnc.
5:41 am
i've been involved in lots of different discussions about what went right, what went wrong. what i get out of this is we have to be honest with ourselves, what happens, what went wrong what, do we have to do to improve things? what i'm excited about is we got a deep bench of young talent coming to the surface, showing the country that we really have ideas and solutions and a vision. that's what matters here is that we're actually offering a solutions that improve people's lives and we're going to be able to broaden our appeal to the country by showing these innovative solutions that make things better in this country. we really believe that this nation is in a pivotal stage, we're in a major chapter of writing the 21st century for america and we owe it to our fellow men and women in this nation to give them solutions based on our founding principles. that's what we're doing. the autopsy basically is a diagnostic test to figure out how do we make sure we communicate, broaden our appeal, get these principles into the minds of americans who see that we're offering something better than more borrowing, more spending, bigger government, less freedom? that's the difference between
