minus 17 in minot. wind out there as well, feels much colder. like minus 47 in glasgow and these temps go on and on and across much of the south where even into parts of texas we have windchill advisories in effect. it is going to be feeling incredibly cold all the way to the south, all the way to the west. much of california had a really rough week with a lot of the agriculture out there was well. and then this storm we'll dealing with, almost done. at least the icing we saw. dallas through parts of the ohio valley and a lot of people without power. a lot of accidents. take a while to get all the power back on. now we just have the tail end to bring a little rain to the southeast and see things clear ot for today across parts of the northeast. there's a new storm, though, and this is one out across parts of california. you see the rain moving into central california. big snow in across parts of the tahoe area. great news. they desperately need snow and snow pack across much of the
west. this storm is great. we'll take it. it will have a slightly different storm track this time, maybe further up the north, more snow. the rockies, light snow across the northern plains and a little icing around the d.c. area tomorrow and rain and some snow into interior sections across the northeast. we keep going. >> and the cold doesn't go anywhere. >> cold stays about another four days. >> you call it a little ice around the d.c. area. we call it complete panic and gridlock and chaos. >> exactly. >> we can see the lines in the grocery store from here. >> can't imagine. speaking of panic, say you're one of the relatively few americans, tens of thousands, who actually signed up at the website and thought you bought your insurance through healthcare.gov. now it turns out you may not have the insurance you thought you had. about one in four of the people in october and november who signed up aren't going get insurance, because of errors with the website. either the insurance companies weren't notified, the money
wasn't sent, the connection wasn't made. the worst part, you may not know. the federal government has not notified those people if they do not have insurance. >> you have until december 23rd, of course, to actually enroll. the point, come january 1st if you thought your registration went through the process, january 1st got the new coverage, turns out because of the errors you might not be enrolled at all. 1 in 4, corrected? that was 1 out of every 10 folks according to a new report this morning, one out of ten people who signed up through the website lieutenant have have errors involved. overall 25 perce% have errors a may not have coverage. >> and claiming victory, setting their bar so low at 80% of a success rate, that there you go. the problems are with these so-called 834 forms, which has
your personal information sent to the information, mind you, that goes from healthcare.gov to the insurance companies and the information sometimes is muddied, incorrect, there's duplicate applications and sometimes not there at all, and you don't even know it. >> people wind up having their children signed up for adult plans. the irony, of course, all of this obama care from the very beginning was designed to bring health insurance to the unins e uninsured and it's wound up stripping a lot of people who had insurance of their insurance and the most negligent part, many don't know. the obama organization is so negligenn, many don't even know. >> and the doctors, in fact, a number of doctors jumping ship and boycotting obama care altogether. go out to the state of california, in fact, seven out of ten doctors, ard coulding to a new report out this morning, are boycotting the obama care
exchange, because, for instance, for getting a tonsilectomy. $500 to $700 they would normally be able to charge for a tonsilectomy in other parts of the country. in california, $160. one of the doctors, he's the president of the california medical association, he sums it up perfectly. we need recognition we're doing a service to the community, but we can't do it for free. he says, we can't do it at a loss. no other business would do that. >> $160? you can't get a bone and rib-eye and a bottle of beer at the pub for that. that's an outrage. >> and return visits, also, $76. generally in most states across the country. in california, it's about $24. take an listen to the doctor in the state of california. a very loose state, mind you, who's fed up with this. >> we train to take care of patients. that's the bottom line here, but in order to take care of patients you have to be able to keep your doors open, pay your overhead, pay your staff.
the reality is $24 doesn't cover the cost of taking care of the patient. nats why there's problems getting doctors taking care of medicaid patients in california. we cannot have the exchanges offering such low rates for patients who are moving out of the ppo market or the individual market. if you put enough people in the plans and don't have enough doctors doing, you end up with a bottleneck. >> nothing the administration can do, bullied what, are they going to arrest doctors for not treating patients for $140 for a tonsilectomy? they can't control it. >> we'll talk to governor hu huckabee later in the show. and we remember those killed tragically at pearl harbor on the japanese surprise attack on pearl harbor. fdr called it day that will live
in infamy, so how did spaghettios get involved? i don't know why they're getting involved in remembrances but decided to tweet out this picture yesterday and said, help us in remembering the day, honoring pearl harbor and sent out this picture of a spaghettio holding an american flag. >> so many killed and wounded and catapulted us into world war ii. >> wait a sec. i cannot get outraged about this. just because they're a there delicious pasta in a can company, doesn't mean they don't have a right to honor pearl harbor. i'm not outraged. people are so outraged? america's getting so big about outrages. "that's not appropriate." i read the timeline to spaghettios, it's hilarious. it's odd and out of the blue for a pasta company -- >> i look at that and say
spaghettios is happy we won. it took four years and untold american dead and a lot of japanese dead, but we advantage kwishd the aggressor, freed asia from the yoke of communist kpangs, and that's what spaghettios wants. >> there are 140 characters you can have. maybe a day that will live in infamy, but eat some spaghettios and try to have a good day. >> your free now. you can eat spaghettios. let us know what you think? outraged or find it funny? >> in the end, they surrenders. and unemployment, five-year low looks good. don't let it fool you. what you don't see is frightening. why he says the new numbers are no reason to celebrate. first, the grammy nominations concert. >> taylor swift. ♪ ♪ ♪ never fails

welcome back. here watching the news yesterday you may have noticed the unemployment rate dip to a five-year low this month, 7.3% to 7% during the month of november. that means 203,000 jobs were added to the economy. sounds like good news, but some economists say the numbers mask a pervasive problem just beneath the surface. record high unemployment among young americans. put these numbers into context, economist in the university of maryland business professor is here with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> so these numbers are being trumpeted all around by the president's supporters on various broadcasts we did yesterday as great news, but you say they're not what they appear to be. why? >> well, simply, the quality of jobs are not very good and most
young people really are having a terrible time getting started in careers. you know, college graduates are still working at starbucks and the like, and we have a lot of college graduates who are really graduate students, not learning very much, because they can't find a job. piling up a lot of debt and so forth. >> so at what point is this assumption that every person needs to go a four-year college and then get a graduate degree going to fold under the weight of the counterevidence maybe it's smarter to join the work force earlier? >> i think it's starting right now. for example, law schools are reducing sizes of classes and several prominent business schools did not raise enough applications last year to start a first year class. for example, george mason university did not have a first year class here in virginia. and, you know, i know my program, my part-time program, which is our bread and butter, our enrollment is down. you've got to deliver jobs and value in the end. i don't think that's happening. >> that's smart. every time unemployment numbers come out, smart economists say, wait a second. the real measure here is work
force participation. what percentage of american whose can work, who want to work, are working? why isn't that the number the government releases and that we use as our common currency of this conversation? >> it does release it, right alongside the unemployment numbers but the press is just interested in the unemployment number because it's a sexy number, one we've used over tile. like the headline number for the cpi or the core number for the cpi and people are aware of it. i i don't think the administration is doing a terribly good job of selling itself. mr. obama wouldn't have a 39% approval rating even with the obama care if he had a good job rating. people are working multiple part time job, can't make ends meet. why we have demonstrations outside mcdonald's. if we had a healthy job market we wouldn't be discussing the minimum wage. >> the income disparity the
president is so concerned about has, of course, widened under his watch dramatically. >> absolutely. this anti-growth policies, his policies of excessive government regulation, not standing up to the chinese on trade, shutting down oil production off both coasts and much of the gulf of mexico. all of those things are the things that keep us from creating jobs for the front-line workers. the high school graduates who used to work in factories. it thinks we can all be computer software people. >> absolutely. thank for joining us. you might say teen usa, but this olympic uniform wasn't made in america. where your money is going this time. and it's the season for holiday parties, but what if you drink a little too much at those parties? what about how to -- we're going to show you how to survive the next day at the office. hangover cures that actually

gentleman, we're trying to honor him this morning too. he was killed in 2009 in afghanistan and served three tours in iraq. all right. john, start with you on this, this type of thing happens more often than we may realize, doesn't it? >> >> happens all the time and it's disgusting every time it does. the problem is, when you post a fake profile on facebook or match.com, the communications decency act which is the devil, protects the internet service providers. you can only go after the content providers. in other words, the people sitting in their garages in their dirty pajamas drooling over their keyboards making up this crap are the only people you can go after. good luck trying to find them. >> arthur, facebook and these dating websites, if they don't have an obligation do they have an obligation to somehow find the person who is behind the act? >> well that's like a moral question more than a legal question. legally speaking they do not. legally speaking the way it's
supposed to work is that the family of the soldier is supposed to go and find it them. facebook is huge. billion users or something like that. how do they make sure what anna kooiman puts in her profile, how do they reconcile that to make sure it's accurate? it's too big of a problem. we're on here every saturday morning and i would say 50% of the time we're talking about some sort of internet problem, some sort of a violation of privacy. it's disgusting what happened. but i don't know how exactly they're going to go after it. >> the case we're talking about is a fallen hero somebody decreased. something going on with a model in a $1.5 billion against match.com. now in this situation, she's living. does that make a difference? >> it doesn't make a difference that she's alive, but the problem is, we need to change the communication decency act so we can go after these -- the internet service providers. there's got to be some way that
they can check to make sure who's legit? >> how? >> that's my next question. >> when you're typing from your computer they should know who you are and have some sort of cross reference because we can't find these people who make the fake profiles. >> but they're the ones that should be held responsible, the pieces of garbage doing this. facebook isn't the piece of garbage. the person in the piece of pajamas in the garage. >> facebook.com and match.com are giving them the opportunity to be jerks. >> giving 99.9% of the good people to do good things. >> with all the technology, facebook, match.com should be able to figure out who's posting what on their website. >> okay. >> thank you so much. >> wins again. >> maybe there will be a difference made somehow. all right. guys, thank you so much. 56 minutes after the hour. coming up on "fox & friends," the president wants you to believe republicans are trying to sabotage obama care, turns out the law is about to unravel all on its own. the two cases that could cripple

hello and good morning to you. it is saturday, december 7th, 2013. we begin with a fox news alert. he will be home for christmas. a u.s. veteran held in north korea for more than a month finally set free and on his way home. how it all went down and we'll hear from him straight ahead. you think you enrolled in obama care? think again. the obama administration dropping a bombshell, turns out that thousands of americans who recently thought they signed up for insurance, may not have insurance at all and they have no way of knowing it. we know what happened and we'll tell you coming up. and they are is a symbol of freedom but now we're learning green energy farms might be getting a free pass for killing bald eagles.
you can't make this up. straight from the obama administration. we'll tell you about it. "fox and friends" hour two starts right now. you're watching "fox and friends." my favorite show. >> stone cold. happy saturday morning. it's the first saturday -- one of the first saturdays in december. i've lost track. in any case it's 7:00 a.m. on the east coast. anna kooiman. >> good morning. >> you said that i could have believed you. >> not a math major. doesn't matter. it's december and we're glad it is. >> a lot of terrible weather out there and storms, but a perfect storm brewing right now in washington, d.c. as it relates to obama care. just when you thought the website was up and running and things were looking good for obama care, we get a new bombshell report yesterday that it turns out that one in ten applications that are being filed through the website, are not going through. in fact, if you thought you signed four obama care, you might not find out you didn't
sign up until after the deadline passes when you think you're covered? >> one in ten sounds bad but it's an improvement. check out the full screen we have here just last month and during october when it was rolled out, one in four had these errors. we're talking about the 834 forms that go from healthcare.gov and they get fired over to the insurance companies and there's a problem with these transmissions where sometimes the information is jarbled and all mucked up. sometimes there are duplicate applications filed and sometimes they're not there at all. people are discovering hey, i signed up, i waited in line, i was on the website going through this mess for how long, and i'm not even enrolled. >> there is almost no possible foul up that isn't occurring to this process under obama care. people being enrolled in names that aren't theirs, having their children enrolled under their names. the cruelest irony of all is that obama care was passed on the promise it would bring insurance to the uninsured, health care to people who couldn't get it and the opposite
is true. more have lost their health care that have gained it so far. the cruelest of the cruelest is some don't know. if they wind up sick, believing they're covered by health insurance find out they're no the. >> you think because of how important this program is to the president, the president's legacy and his signature program, he would be having meeting after meeting with health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius to make sure we are on par, going to nail this thing. when we roll this out it's going to be a success. more scrutiny paid to how much time president obama actually devoted to meeting one on one with kathleen sebelius. peter went through these gia logs of the institute logbooks this week and found out she and the president, kathleen sebelius and president obama, never met face to face one on one in a one-on-one meeting. zero times. so we knew that reporting this week. now an update this morning because jay carney took to the podium yesterday to say not so
fast, don't believe everything you hear. >> he basically said all kinds of times, it's just not on the books. take a listen to jay carney. >> cabinet secretaries don't regularly get entered into the visitor logs because they come frequently. and kathleen sebelius comes frequently and she meets frequently with the president. i will refer you to the department for more information and more detail but she's here a lot. >> really? where is that detail? it has not been provided so far by the white house. keep in mind that 217 other occasions where the president met with the cabinet secretary were recorded. how often did the president meet with kathleen sebelius? does the information not exist, not keeping track or withholding it from the american people? >> why would he have met 73 times with former secretary clinton, and fwitser er igeith those happen to be on the calendar but zero times with kathleen sebelius.
conspiracy theorists saying maybe this whole thing was because of if the website ends up being a debacle, if aca ends up being a debacle he can run the other direction and say -- and push the blame and push the buck on to somebody else. >> jay carney is being disingenuo disingenuous. it has nothing to do with the logbooks. the logs have to do with the president's personal calendar and when he said well, you know, we don't -- cabinet secretaries often aren't logged in the visitor logbooks. the question was on the president's personal calendar where are these meetings that apparently happened. they all should be there. this was the administration that said they were going to open up their calendars and logbooks and be transparent. >> gets to the most basic question, which is does the public which is funding this government and living under its authority, have a right to know anything about how it works and resoundingly for the past five years, the answer is no. i can say this is a member of the working press. we cover the white house in washington. you can't get a straight answer
to anything. people said the bush administration is the most anti-media, most, you know, closed and secret administration ever. i thought that was true until these people showed up. it's unbelievable. >> and further just let me make this final point here, if they were meeting to jay carney's point, meeting one on one, how didn't the president know that this was about to become a disasser? >> supposedly the contractor had been warning kathleen sebelius about the website problems and glitches for months. >> if they were having one-on-one meetings that's a worse scenario. you would think she would have told him this website is going to be a disaster? do you buy it? do you believe it? e-mail us. other stories to get to. fox news alert while you were sleeping, an american war veteran held captive in north korea for over a month released. right now merrill newman is on a plane bound for san francisco and expected to arrive early this afternoon. he was deported after the communist state released a video of newman apologizing for crimes he committed during the korean war. arriving at the airport in
beijing from pyongyang, newman was all smiles. >> i'm very glad to be on my way home. i appreciate the tolerance that dprk government has given to me to be on my way. >> how do you feel now? >> feel good. feel good. >> what would you like to do? >> go home and see my wife. >> i guess so. late last night newman's son jeff reacted to the news. >> this great moment for us as a family. and it will be even better when we have a chance to be back together in a few hours. >> vice president joe biden in south korea as part of his asian tour said he offered newman a flight home on air force 2 but said that newman declined. another american kenneth bae, still sits in a north korea jail after over a year in captivity. caught in the act, new video this morning appearing to show two men stealing parts from the porsche that actor paul walker
was in when he died. tmz reporting walker's fans recorded the whole thing. the men running up to a tow truck and taking off with the parts. one of those men is reportedly 18-year-old jameson witty. he posted these photos on instagram grabbing about the grab, he is behind bars. the other man is expected to turn himself in soon. you're looking at live pictures from johannesburg, south africa, where visitors from all over the world continue to mourn the loss of nelson mandela. memorial plans are under way. it could be the largest service the world has ever seen. president obama will travel to south africa for the memorial along with presidents bush and clinton. they will be joined by other world figures like the pope and celebrities including bill gates and oprah. the public service will be on tuesday then mandela's body will lie in state for three days. after that his body will be flown to his home village for a private memorial. here we go.
here's the answer to the question, supermodel heidi klum breaking the fans of hearts around the world. revealing she'll never strut her stuff in lingerie again. >> what? >> the former victoria secret angel who turned 40 in june says the thought of walking the catwalk in her underwear makes her feel, quote, uncomfortable but she has no plans to give up model altogether. she will still do photo shoots, just with a little more clothes on. >> outrage. >> she's in that jeans ad right now where she's dancing her little booty off. she looks great. >> it's just selfish. just because it makes her uncomfortable doesn't mean it make america. >> bingo. >> think about somebody else. >> extreme weather alert, at least 11 are dead after a winter storm packing snow, ice, freezing cold temperatures hit huge parts of the united states. >> parts of ohio slammed with snow. the winter storm causing more than a thousand flight cancellations throughout the south and the midwest. >> and in missouri some areas getting up to 10 inches of snow and while forecasters say the
snow will stop, the bitter cold temperatures are staying. >> well let's ask our own forecaster, will the snow ever stop, be rick? will it ever stop ? >> it will. depends on where you are. >> glasgow -- i lived in montana. these numbers are crazy to me. >> yes. when you knew those temperatures living there does this seem extreme some. >> they use block heaters. you have to plug in your car at night so your engine doesn't freeze. temperatures, these aren't windchill temperatures. these are actual air temperatures. minus 32, that's just incredible. minus 19 in billings. minus 6 in denver. so many days in a row of this where temperatures haven't gotten in some cases above 0, other cases like denver, you haven't been above the teens for about five days now. so people are getting very tired of it and look at that windchill. clayton, there you go, glasgow, feels like minus 52. this is a very dangerous situation. windchill advisories and warnings in effect all across parts of this northern tier. take a look at this, windchill
advisories across southern texas. doesn't mean it's as cold as that. the criteria is a little less. incredible cold down across parts of places as far south as south texas. this is the storm that moved through. we're going to see a little bit of rain still with this. that's gone. but then we're going to turn our attention to the next storm that's coming out across parts of the west, going to bring more freezing rain to the same places that just got it. >> minus 6 in denver. that is actually shocking. >> they had an acmperature of me cold temperature. my brother lives there and i talked to him this week and he said everybody is sick of it and it's all anybody can talk about. >> it can be dangerous to be outside in that. talk about bald eagles this morning, a symbol of american freedom in this country. it's bad news if you're a bald eagle and watching our show this morning, bad news for you out there because these wind farms, giant wind it turbines that that are supposed to be for conservation, there they are, well, they have now got an 30-year free license to
basically kill bald eagles. >> it's unbelievable. granted by the obama administration. bald eagles and many other birds of prey are really protected. you're dove shooting and hit a bald eagle by accident you can go to prison, you will be prosecuted. if you own a wind farm, many of which have given a lot of money to the real action campaign of president obama, you have an exemption. these wind farms kill an awful lot of birds. >> i didn't know this about bald eagles. i knew they look down for food. this is why, because they drive like we do when driving and texting on our cell phones and use this analogy, they don't look up as they scan for food below. they plow into these blades and are killed. >> well, this is -- information coming from the "wall street journal" that this is all an effort obviously to foster renewable energy and that industry which is something that president obama has really tried to, you know, if you put your green hat on you can thank him for doing that, but the real issue, the real reason why this
pardon essentially is going to be happening, is because it was exposed that they were turning a blind eye to all of this. there was a piece in the associated press that basically exposed the obama administration for not fining a single person or prosecuting a single person from a wind farm for killing bald eagles. >> that's it right there. this is an assault on the rule of law. not about wind farms or bald eagles. the ideas that laws apply differently to different people depending how much they are favored by the king, the person in power. if the president likes you you don't have to obey the law, if you're an ordinary person you will be punished severely. >> john anderson, the director of the sitting policy of the american wind energy association says this, this is not a program to kill eagles. this permit program is all about conservation. >> let us know what you think about this. >> try that next time you shoot one by accident. >> i was trying to conserve it by killing it. coming up on the show the president wants you to believe republicans are trying to sabotage obama care. turns out the law is about to
unravel on its own. the two cases that may cripple the law before the new year so. beer or coffee, which is better for you? stick around. what does that first spoonful taste like? ok. honey bunches of oats. ching! mmmm! mmmm! mmmm! wow! it's the oats. honey. yeah. honey bunches of oats. this is a great cereal.

♪ welcome back. the president swore to uphold the law of the land, all presidents do, but some are saying a he's not upholding the law with his name on it, obama care. the next guest testified before the congress about why that is so dangerous. >> if the people come to believe the government is no longer constrained by the laws they will conclude no longer are they. this is a dangerous sort of
thing for the president to do to wantly ignore the laws. >> that is a very deep point and not often enough articulated. michael, the man that said it. director of health policy studies at the cato institute in washington. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. >> very smart as you just said, if people think the president's not constrained by laws they will believe they are not either. give us examples of how the president has ignored the law. >> the biggest example is there are provisions in obama care that only take effect if the states establish these health insurance exchanges, only if there is an exchange, quote, established by the state. now those provisions include the subsidies available through exchanges and the employer mandate, the penalties imposed on employers if they don't offer what the government considers adequate health insurance. 34 states said they're not going to create exchanges and the federal government is operating exchanges in those states so that means those provisions by law are inoperative in those
states. employers in those 34 states are exempt from those taxes. >> right. >> but what the the obama administration is doing, is the exact opposite of what the law says. the exact opposite. they are issuing the subsidies and imposing those taxes in those 34 states and their rationale for doing the opposite of what the law says is that's what congress intended. >> but wait a second. we have a congress, we can fact check this with the people who pass the law. they're still there. they're sitting in their seats in that domed building. where are they? the president is usurping power reserved for the legislative branch and they're not doing anything about it, why? >> well, half of congress likes the outcome here. the half of congress that's controlled by democrats likes the fact that the president is doing this thing because they think it's going to save obama care. but the statute is clear, the legislative history supports the statute, the administration has nothing -- has found nothing in
the statute or legislative history that supports its bizarre interpretation of the law and attempt to really turn this part of the law on its head. they're doing it because if they don't, then there will be a greater backlash against obama care and congress will have to reopen it. >> shortsighted because the precedences are getting laid down that will have effects in the future. the president has decided he can interpret the law how he wants, they get exemptions, they don't. isn't there a danger the republican president could come in and start interpreting obama care in his way and basically gut it? >> there is. fortunately we have a way of stopping the president or this particular abuse of his power. there have been four lawsuits if filed in federal court to block niece illegal subsidies and taxes. one of them just had a hearing this week. we might get rulings on one or more of them by the end of this year. the sooner the better. we are talking about -- this isn't chump change we'r talking
about here. the president is trying to tax and borrow and spend contrary to federal law -- >> and he's doing it. >> $700 billion. >> and we unfortunately out of time but hopefully the courts will intervene. thanks for joining us. >> you bet. >> more "fox and friends." through all of our energy operations, we invest more in the u.s. than any other place in the world. in fact, we've invested over $55 billion here in the last five years - making bp america's largest energy investor. our commitment has never been stronger. and our giant idaho potato truck is still missing. so my dog and i we're going to go find it. it's out there somewhere spreading the good word about idaho potatoes and raising money for meals on wheels.

>> i don't understand what you're talking about. >> they didn't agree on much. they rarely agreed on anything. they fought all the time and they challenged each other every day. but des might their differences, they had one important thing in common. they were crazy about each other. >> did you love this movie as much as i did? they may have been crazy about each other in "the notebook" but when we see these type of things
and they seem normal fights, they could be a signal of a toxic relationship. let's ask miss new york, 2013, joanne and comedian ryan reese. good morning. >> good morning. >> thank you so much for being here. so yeah, very often we think oh, it's normal to just drop hints, normal to be passive/aggressive but those can be toxic behaviors. ryan, do you wish we would say what we mean and mean what we say? >> when you say we, you're referring to women being passive/aggressive. women are very passive/aggressive. i don't know why you think this is going to change us as men. when you get home do you look at the tv and say i wish" desperate housewives" was on. >> rather than change the channel. >> what do you think? >> i think we are culprits definitely of this passive/aggressive behavior. men are sick. i have to say. you must agree with me. >> thank you. >> so we just need to be honest. it's about communication. they always say communication is key and i wholeheartedly agree.
>> don't you feel like they close their ears and aren't listening and say huh? huh? >> that does often happen, yes, but they can be trained like dogs. >> okay. >> next up we have blaming your partner for your own emotions. ryan i won't ask you if you've personally been in this situation. >> yes. >> but whether you're happy or sad does it depend on the person you're in the relationship with or does it depend on yourself? >> no. i think it depends on yourself. i've been in relationship where people have blamed me for their emotions and if that's the case ladies, i'm going to start slipping per cassettk percocetsr drinks. >> do we need to take responsible and handle our emotions the way you should. >> you're the only one responsible for your emotions. if you're looking to your partner to do that for you, you shouldn't be in a relationship. they can add to your happiness but shouldn't be your sole happiness. >> how do we do that? >> you need to be secure in yourself. insecurity is the biggest culprit of vulnerability and
that's ultimately what leads to the toxic relationship. >> what about jealousy? a lot of people think maybe a little jealousy is okay, but then it can be taken overboard if the girl or guy starts looking in your phone and starts, you know, having outbursts and things like that, what do you think about jealousy? >> i think it's silly i like it a little bit but laze ladies, you're a little gels you. when you see another girl, what are you thinking, you think i can get that girl? i can't get that girl. you think she's jealous of this. look at that couple fight smog what if you have a girlfriend and you see another good-looking, well-to-do guy talking to her, does it make you jealous? >> i'm jealous he gets the fun stuff and i'm the one that has to pick her sister up at the airport and i'm the one that has to hang out with her parents. >> you are terrible. >> remember anniversaries. >> last thing real quick. joanne what do you think? jealousy good or bad? >> don't look at phones. that will bring up more jealous feelings and you're going to

states here, how specifically would people save by moving to different states? in what areas of their lives? checking account, paycheck? >> we're talking about the taxable income which changes state by state. essentially that's a price on work. some states, nine states like this one in florida, put a price at zero. so many of the new yorkers, new jersey residents, moving down south. you can see they can save several thousand dollars per year that adds up over a lifetime. >> dive into specific examples. start with folks living in new york. where are they moving and how much would they save? give us a general example of a person, maybe a 50-year-old taxpayer in that state? >> sure. we're seeing the big trend, the past 18 years, over 43 million americans from the northeast moving to a state like florida. $95 billion going down there. 50-year-old average taxable income leaving new york going to florida could easily save over $6600. that's over $200,000 with the
time remaining before retirement. >> if you saved that money in an account accruing that way it could be a windfall for you. next out to minnesota. i didn't realize there was a problem in minnesota with taxes, a big problem there. >> well, cold weather there today, and in fact, the last year they just raised the price of work up to 9.85%. you're seeing already from the past 18 years, flight to florida and arizona, that's expected to get worse when you raise that price on work for those people that don't like those taxes. >> so they have the fourth highest income rate in the country. out to california, we know many people moving out of california to save some money. where are they going? >> that's right. generally those that are, for example, outside of san bernadino, riverside, don't want to leave, but then they're looking at a savings of several thousand dollars per year going may be.r las vegas or phoenix these arrows show you evidence of that. >> wow. >> going out of the state.
and not just to the border states, to other regions. >> yeah. to vegas and arizona and in nevada. and then let's move down to texas and where are folks -- moving to texas? seems like a lot of people moving to texas from all over the country? >> yeah. from california as an example. the greater los angeles area, that's losing over $6 million per day of taxable income going to places like texas, all over texas, austin, dallas, houston, $6 billion from california alone going into texas, nearly $25 billion total. >> and a person, a 30-year-old taxpayer there, filing as single, moving to texas, would save about $1100 every year. >> yeah. >> just by moving to texas. >> and adding up over a lifetime that's big money. >> wow. incredible. travis brown author of "how money walks" thanks for joining us. want more tips and information go to how money walks.com. thanks. coming up, fast food workers walk off the job demanding higher wages. wouldn't that just put the costs back on the customer? is this a good idea? we'll debate it next.

while you were sleeping an american war veteran held captive in north korea for over a month, released and right now merrill newman is on a plane bound for san francisco. he was deported after the communist state released a video of newman apologizing for, quote, crimes he committed during the korean war. arriving at the airport in beijing from pyongyang, newman was all smiles. >> i'm very glad to be on my way home. i appreciate the tolerance that dprk government has given to me to be on my way. >> how do you feel now? >> i feel good. i feel good. >> first thing, what would you like to do? >> go home and see my wife. >> he should say smooch his wife. vice president joe biden in south korea as part of his asian tour said he offered newman a flight home on air force 2, but said newman declined. and new overnight, defense secretary chuck hagel lands in kabul amid chaos over a security deal. the unannounced visit comes as afghan president hamid karzai
refuses to sign a deal that would allow u.s. troops to stay in the country past 2014. the u.s. says they want a deal signed by the end of the month. hagel has no plans to meet with karzai on his trip. his office says he is in the country to thank troops for their service. and now, you are about to look at live pictures from johannesburg, south africa, where visitors from all over the world continue to mourn the loss of nelson mandela. memorial plans are under way. it could be the largest service the world has ever seen. president obama will travel to south africa for the memorial along with presidents bush and clinton. they will be joined by other world figures like the pope and celebrities including bill gates and oprah. the public service will be held on tuesday. mandela's body will lie in state for three days. after that his body will be flown to his home village for a private burial. a new battle in the war on christmas. now congress looking to tax your christmas free. your christmas tree. they want to tack on 15 cents
per tree. the reason? to pay for a federal christmas tree promotion board. its purpose would be to enhance the image of the christmas tree industry in the united states. maybe we should be calling it a holiday tree. >> people hate christmas trees. look at that. next they'll tax the reindeer outside. what's next? >> we have extreme weather alert, at least 11 people are dead after a winter storm packed with snow, ice and surprisingly cold temperatures descended on the united states. ice, sleet and snow in parts of texas caused several accidents, power outages and flight cancellations. >> check out this video out of duluth, minnesota. an eerie steam effect on lake superior. this happens when the water temperature is warmer than the air. over the past week duluth got almost 3 feet of snow. rick reichmuth is standing by, a tweet from murray holderman in montana. he says it's negative 13 right now. >> yeah, warm. >> negative 13. >> better than glass cow where
it's minus 32. >> in montana. the cold is extreme. the temperatures in the far northern rockies and plains seems crazy cold and it is for that area but it's crazy cold to the south. you're 1 degrees in midland, texas, and 21 in dallas and 4 in amarillo. factor in the wind, it feels colder than that. feels like minus 8 in amarillo, texas. it gives you an idea this cold has settled way far to the south. if you're in the southern areas you're not used to that kind of cold. a lot of people might not have heat in texas and arizona. phoenix at 32 degrees. big agricultural impacts from this storm or this cold air as well. this eastern coast storm where we saw this icing that's pretty much gone. little bit of leftover rain.% the cold stays in place and there's a new storm that is going to form. we're going to see this develop by tomorrow morning and you see that pink, that's potentially another bit of an ice storm across parts of kentucky. this time eastern kentucky and across parts of north carolina, virginia and eventually towards the d.c. area where i think
we're going to see a little icing and by monday morning that bit of icing potentially gets in towards areas just outside of new york city and snow to the north of it, the rain continues, maybe a few thunderstorms, and then, of course, the cold continues for everybody for at least about another four days. we have ice storm warnings already posted across parts of north carolina. so get ready. we're not done. >> lovely. >> all right. thanks so much, rick. >> thank you, rick. governor huckabee sat down on the coach, host of "huckabee" here on the fox news channel. great to see you. >> good morning. merry christmas, everyone. >> thank you. >> and if it's another weekend it's another crazy story. usually we get these document dumps on friday, bad information on a friday afternoon, so you get to waddled into on a saturday on the show. we learned yesterday from the obama administration, one in four americans in october who signed up through healthcare.gov, their applications may not actually have gone through. therefore, they don't have coverage. now we learned that with all the fixes, one in ten applications still aren't going through. so when that deadline reaches on
december 23rd and you think you have coverage on january 1st you may not have coverage. what do you make of this latest revelation? >> it's an ongoingisaster and i think people need to realize as bad as the website is and it's clearly been a train wreck, it's nothing compared to weapons when people finally get into obama care and now we're learning that, for example, in states like washington state, nine times more people signed up for medicaid than to pay for insurance. so this is just another chapter in the continuing saga of maybe obama's greatest disaster. this one in ten failure, think about that. some might say that's only 10%. would we accept that 10% of our mail would be delivered in a mud put al block from our house? of course not. would we accept our doctor 10% of the time gave us the wrong medicine and made us sicker? of course not. would we accept a restaurant would serve us food 10% of the time would make us violently ill? no. should americans be willing to accept 10% complete failure even
after we've spent $700 million? of course not. >> this is health care a life or death question. in the middle of all these debacles and scandals, very tough first term the -- second term the president has had so far, he chooses to explain himself to one of his prime people, professional obama sniffer, this man. >> chris tingle. >> kriss kringle is the christmas person but this is chris tingle -- >> we can't make this up. >> rather than ask a single real question he continues to slobber over the president. >> i thought they should have got an room. >> i'm going to continue the rest of this interview in the same way chris mathews did the interview with president obama. governor huckabee, you were an incredible governor and a very handsome man too. >> thank you. >> how do you say that all the time? >> how many -- when you get an interview like that, to me, what's the love fest aside, missed a lot of opportunities to push him on these big questions about obama care and other programs, right?
>> you know, honestly when i've been interviewed i would rather somebody ask me hard questions because you can knock one out of the park when it's a fastball across the shoulder. if somebody is just lobbing things down in the dirt, which -pis what mathews essentially d, it makes both of them frankly look less than they should. >> have you ever watched obama get a tough question. one of our reporters asked him a tough question and he looked so outraged he couldn't talk. >> bret baier did the question with him and bret was pressing him, it was respectful, but doing the job of a real journalist and you could see obama bristoling with indignation, how dare him push me. >> maybe that's why the presidents are sort of going on lockdown now. talking about this earlier on the show they don't want the hard questions and therefore, having press conferences not even meeting with reporter mitt romney got testy with bret asking him tough questions. >> i'm going to start getting testy with you guys. obama has done interviews,
remember the disk jockey in florida, his nickname on air the pimp with the limp. those are hard-hitting interviews. at the same time he wouldn't do interviews with -- >> on fox news channel, msnbc instead. the president surrounding himself with people who, you know, are drinking the coolaid which is something that they do but valerie jarrett was recently quoted as saying that the reason that president obama possibly hasn't met with kathleen sebelius because he's so extraordinary that he doesn't do what ordinary people do and maybe that's why we don't understand his actions. >> use that excuse around my house. >> but jay carney yesterday said, of course, they've met a bunch of times, it's just not on the record. do you buy that? do you believe they've plett met? >> no. white house logs are thorough, if no other reason than historical purposes, they want to keep those logs in case they're subpoenaed or asked questions, you know, she just didn't show up in the logs.
the review is pretty thorough here. >> following on something valerie jarrett said, wouldn't it be easier to have sick people touch the hem of obama's garment and be healed. >> that's a great idea. he alluded to something in an interview with mathews about his management style, how, you know, it's not his management style, it's the fault of the internal bureaucracy of the government, but that is an issue of his management style. good managers understand you see the whole field of play, you take the problem, you take a big problem, break it down into little problems, you assign people and task them with the responsibility of fixing it, and you hold them accountable. you check on them constantly. he doesn't check up on things. he doesn't know what's happening. every time he's asked a question, his answer and everyone in the administration, i don't know. he found out about that when he read it in the papers. saw that on tv. this is the most amazing president who is unaware of what he's managing. >> this is what the president said during that interview about his management style. let's listen.
>> the challenge i think that we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around white house organization, it actually has to do with what i refer to earlier, which is we have these big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly -- >> well, if he's got a big government that's not working well, why would we throw health care into it? i mean, you know, that's like saying we have a problem, all of our clothes are getting eaten up by the grinder so let's throw our hands in there too along with our clothes. that's the most amazing reason to not trust obama care. he just gave it to us and he didn't realize it. >> one of our supervisors shows up drunk, let's give him more responsibility, what do you say? >> and a liquor cabinet, why not. >> are you ready for the rumors to begin swirling once again around another presidential run? i know you just went through this for 2012 election. can you handle 2016? looks like rumors are swirling they want you to throw your hat
into the ring again? >> the rumors are always coming and going. but the biggest question would be, would that mean i would have to quit being on "fox & friends" on saturday? >> no. emphatically i want to speak for our producers -- >> i'm just checking. >> because, you know, this is one of my favorite things of the week. >> i covered you last time. that was fun. at least from our point of view, it was really fun. >> i had a great time. i really did. it's one of those things you're not supposed to enjoy but i actually enjoyed the connection with people and campaigns don't have to be miserable. they can really be an energizing experience. >> you were tried and true. it's unbelievable, he remembers everybody's names and where they're from and different things about them. i imagine you are a rock star on the campaign trail. >> i wouldn't go that far. but, you know, it's an enormous experience to be able to really touch america and to understand what this country is about. get away from the coast. find out that the heart of america is in people who drive trucks and put plates on tables and do hard work and don't ask a
whole lot for it. they just like to be left alone, raise their families. >> ask you a tough question, the group of iowa pastors will meet with you privately next week, show their concerns about the 2016 race, they want you to throw your hat into the race. what will you tell them? >> i'll tell them it's something i'll consider, but it's not -- it's two years away. it's way too early for somebody to say this what is i'm going to do. i think people, it's one thing to say i'll look at it, but it's a totally different thing and inappropriate certainly until we get through the 2014 elections -- >> your mind is not shut to the idea? >> no. you can't come to this point of life having run before and come pretty darn close to getting the nomination, to just completely dismiss it. >> you got to watch huckabee tonight. great seeing you. >> good to see you guys. have a good day. >> coming up here on the show, here we go again. might say team usa but the olympic uniform suspect made in america. where your money is going this time. >> fast food workers walking off the job demanding a wage hike. the president says they deserve it but business people say it

across the country fast food workers walking off the job demanding higher wages. president obama supports raising minimum wage to over $10. some say it will hurt the economy. we've got a fair and balanced debate. joined by michael, a senior research fellow with the employment policies institute, marjorie, a former consultant to the obama campaign. thanks for joining us this morning. marjorie, i think most people understand in a bad economy a lot of people trying to live off fast food worker wages very tough, sympathetic to the idea of raising their wages. when workers get too expensive businesses replace workers.
so we will see automated ordering, won't we, at fast food places? >> look, in order to raise any kind of salary you're obviously going to -- or any kind of wage you're going to have to change the business model a little bit. it means things will cost a little more, there will have to be a shift in the workers. you have to look at the long-term outcome. you pay workers more in the long run, end up with more americans which can spend pore money which grows businesses and our economy having these low wage workers puts on our systems like social security and medicaid, we end up paying almost $900 billion to bank tellers alone, low wage bank tellers, to subsidize their living. we pay for it one way or the other. >> that's an interesting point, michael. what's your response? in the end the public will foot the bill anyway if businesses don't pay their workers enough? >> what we can do is provide a partial subsidy through programs like the earned income tax credit as we do right now or provide a 100% subsidy if you raise the minimum wage to $15 an
hour and people can't get work. it's refreshing we just had someone, a proponent of this admit on air it would require shifts in the work force. we haven't necessarily seen that in the past. but it's kind of common sense. you create a $15 minimum wage in an industry where margins are low, customers demand low prices, and if businesses can't pass that on, that is going to mean fewer opportunities and the same way it's meant that european fast food locations you place your order via a touch screen instead of with a person. >> that is kind of the bottom line. you can't force businesses to keep workers they can't afford, right? the government can't control employs, right? >> well no, but what they can do, be you not only have president obama but pope francis talk about is a living wage. set the minimum wage at a level that people can survive on. you have states already emulating what a lot of these workers are talking about. seattle recently raised their minimum wage to $15 an hour. california $10 an hour. i think people are understanding because frankly those strains
end up getting pushed to the states. states have to subsidize those same people. >> very quickly, wouldn't a business get a lot out of the henry ford model? unilaterally saying we're going to pay more than market price for our employees and charge you more and wouldn't that be like a huge pr for a business? >> if a business could do that, if a business could do that they would have done it already. they wouldn't need the federal government telling them to do that. it's instrubtive the examples we're hearing, fast food strikes, airport in seatle, these are union-backed campaigns to try to create a discussion, try to demonize large companies but at the end of the day all they're doing is restricting opportunities for sort of the people at the bottom rung of the career ladder in an environment where you have 20% unemployment in young adults and people less experienced. >> that was really interesting. thanks to you both. >> thank you. pearl harbor survivor kicked off a plane on his way to attend a remembrance ceremony. wait until you hear the justification for this. this is going to outrage you.

still insecure, still having problems, this is the tip of the iceberg. >> you're being nice here. i was reading some reports this week of how bad the security actually is. almost no attention paid to the security side of this? all of your personal information on this website. you're giving up some pretty important personal information here. all available all exposable you're saying? >> well, what we can do, we can't hack the site but we can look around and profile, passive reconnaissance. we can look at how the website was built and found critical exposures on the outlying side of the website from what we see from the outside. the critical issues, things that could expose your information, user id, first name, last name, address, click on a link that hacks your computer and takes full control of it. a lot of basic things that wasn't done. security wasn't a concern because they were trying to run it out the door. it's pretty bad right now. >> i talked to -- i don't know if i was telling you this before, i spoke to the head of security for twitter. it's a 24-hour job and they are
dedicated to trying to make sure your personal information doesn't get out there. here, though, from the government, really hasn't been much of a focus, is disheartening. how long do you think it will take for them to make this a priority and get the website up to snuff? >> the problem is, you think about how you build a house. you build a solid foundation to build the house on top. if you don't build the foundation right and there's crack and the foundation is sinking into quick sand or something like that you have to dig the whole thing out. that's what we're seeing with healthcare.gov. they didn't build the architecture right around security so it's going to take a long time to fix, a year or more. >> what do you think by costs? we've spent upwards of a billion dollars to build the website without security? when you throw security into the mix how much should someone have to pay for that? >> based on the current trends probably double of what you see now. really this type of website you see right in front of us should only cost about $5 million or $10 million from everything from start to finish architecture, security everything. not sure how it cost that much unfortunately. >> double the cost. that's good news.

the system. 1-10 applications simply not working. when january 1st rolls around and you think you have coverage, you won't know about it. >> clayton, that sounds bad, 1-10 sounds bad, but it was 1-4 back in october and november. >> big improvement. >> obama administration can claim a victory if they want to. if you remember, several weeks ago they were aiming quite high at 80% working would be successful. they are meeting their mark. >> that means 1/4 of the people who signed up over the last two months and 1-10 in the last month don't have health insurance. and think they have. here's the surprise. here's the fortune inside the cookie. the obama administration has not notified these people that their applications did not go through, are invalid and they are not covered by health insurance. they are going to find out the hard way when they get sick and show up and find out, sorry, you
don't have insurance. >> it's personal, sensitive information with these 834 forms you're talking about. the insurance companies, there is a problem with the information being transmitted from health care.gov and the insurance companies. the applications are getting muddied up, false information or duplicates or not getting them. those are the people really in trouble. >> they're claiming and one of the members is claiming we are going to get a very granule level to identify the individuals impacted so we have the ability to reach them directly. if the applications themselves are messed up, the name is messed up, social security number is messed up, how are you going to get access to these people to let them know, hey, you don't have coverage, we screwed up your application. >> the irony is the justification for obama care from day one was there are a lot of people who don't have health insurance. some percentage of the population doesn't have health insurance. since coming into law, obama
care caused more people to lose health insurance than gained it through obama care. >> that is startling. a new report out this week, on thursday claimed that president obama never held a one-on-one meeting with kathleen sebelius who is in charge of obama care, head of hhs. the white house on friday, jay carney held a press conference and says those reports are erroneous. of course he met with kathleen sebelius and often those aren't logged into the log book. listen to jay carney. >> cabinet secretaries don't regularly get entered into the visitors' logs because they come frequently. kathleen sebelius comes frequently and meets frequently with the president. i will refer you to the department for more information and more detail. she is here a lot. >> that's simply not true and he is being disingenuous there.
it's not about the law books, but the president's personal calendar. that is what the initial report was citing. >> why is there so much documentation for others members of the cabinet? why is it on record for former secretary clinton having met 73 times one-on-one or 57 times for secretary timothy geithner? it doesn't make sense. americans are outraged about the whole debacle of the website and this new released information of 1-10 having problems. governor mike huckabee is fired up, too. >> this 1-10 failure, that's only 10%, would we accept 10% of our mail be delivered in a mud puddle? of course not? our doctor 10% gave us the wrong medicine and made us sicker? of course no a restaurant would service food that 10% of the time would make us violently ill? no. should americans be willing to accept 10% complete failure
after we spent $700 million? of course not. >> if they've been meeting that many times, it just hasn't been on the books, how come the president somehow wasn't in the loop from kathleen sebelius? she was warned there were glitches and problems with health.gov. >> this administration is keeping a record of every cell phone call i make and google search i perform and they can't tell us how many times he met with the hhs secretary? this is the response you get time and again. i've never seen an administration this resistant to answering a simple question. how many times did they meet? they won't tell you. >> it's supposed to be the most transparent administration in history. they wanted these log books open so the public could see who was coming in the white house having all these meetings. they gave us the excuse they are not that accurate, data basis weren't catching up. they weren't in sync, really? >> but who did you call on the
ride home yesterday? they know the answer to that. >> unbelievable. let us know what you think about this. go to our facebook page ff weekend on facebook and weigh in on this and more. >> and this story happened while you were sleeping. american war veteran held captive in north korea over a month released. merrill newman is on a plane down for san francisco and will arrive at noon eastern. he was deported after the police took video of newman to apologize for crimes he committed during the korean war. >> i'm very glad to be on my way home. i appreciate the tolerance the government has given to me to be on my way. >> how do you feel now? >> feel good. >> what would you like to do? >> go home and see my wife. >> good deal. vice president joe biden in south korea as part of his asian tour said he spoke to newman and
offered him a flight home on air force 2 but said newman declined that offer. biden said the u.s. needs to work on the release of an american held captive in north korea over a year. this is new overnight. defense secretary chuck hagel lands in kabul amongst chaos. it comes after afghan president hamid karzai refuses to sign a deal allowing american troops to stay in the country past 2014. they want a deal signed by the end of the month. hagel has no plans to meet with karzai. he is in the country to thank troops for their service. now you are looking at live pictures from johannesburg, south africa, where visitors all over the world continue to mourn the loss of nelson mandela. president obama will travel to south africa for the memorial along with presidents bush and
clinton. they'll be joined by other world figures like the pope and celebrities including bill gates and oprah. the public service will be on tuesday. mandela's body will lie in state for three days. after that his body will be flown to his home village for a private burial. the grammy nominations are out. justin timberlake lead the pack at seven. did mr. suit and tie get snubbed? timberlake's 20/20 experience was the best-selling release but he still didn't get nominated in top categories like album, song, record of the year. another person shut out. how about this one? miley cyrus. she got no nominations. taylor swift, bruno mars and katy perry performed her hit song last night "roar." ♪ i got the eye of the tiger
fire ♪ ♪ dancing through the fire ♪ cause i am a champion ♪ and you're going to hear me roar ♪ >> "roar" is up for the song of the year. the awards show airs january 26th. i am woman, hear me roar. >> i can't get that song out of my head. oh, i never let it in the first place. >> that's a good tactic. i like that. extreme weather alert. we want to get to the weather. serious weather out west yesterday. 11 people dead this morning after a winter storm packing snow, ice and cold temperatures hitting the united states. ice bringing down trees and power lines throughout texas. this 130-year-old tree snapped and fell on to a home early friday morning. no one was hurt. in missouri, some areas getting up to ten inches of snow while forecasters say the snow will stop and bitter cold temperatures are here to stay for a little while. >> i've got a great question on
twitter earlier. does this cold weather mean that the arctic ice is going to form more during the winter? it would make you think if it's that cold here it's much colder here. not necessarily the case. we end up in a different pattern where the colder air gets shoved farther south. if you look at the weather maps, i can show you this. you look at that temperature in canada towards the arctic circle. minus 6 for a high. billings, minus 9. the colder air is much farther south. take a look over the next few days. the cold air does retreat back in towards areas of the arctic. we remain cold here. you'll notice this pink, the very cold air stays very close to the u.s. i think we'll continue to see batches of that come down across the u.s. the next couple of weeks. we are not done with this by any means. new storm moving in across parts of the west. new snow in lake tahoe area. a lot of them are open and opening new terrain. it's cold enough to make snow.
big-time winter storm warnings again across areas of the southwest, which is where i'm headed to today. >> that was a great question. one of your viewers, it would be nice if you mentioned that person's name on the air to thank them. >> you're right. i'm trying to think of it off the top of my head. >> you're telling us the north pole is not going to be frozen over solid. >> we like to see the ice happening there. there's been a longer term problem with melting. not necessarily global warming, but a pattern we are in. this is a much bigger complex conversation than the producers want us to get in. >> thank you, rick. here is a question. is it okay to kill the very symbol of america? that symbol is the bald eagle. if you hunt or live in a rural area, the answer is emphatically no. kill a bald eagle, even by accident when you're hunting and you're likely to go to jail. if you run a wind farm, however,
favored by the obama administration, it is now okay. this is a big deal because it turns out wind farms kill an awful lot of bald eagles and other birds of prey. they have no penalty. they face no penalty for doing so under the new ruling. >> the new ruling lets them exempt for 30 years, up to 30 years for killing our nation's symbol. the eagles, to tucker's point, the reason they fly like this, why we are not supposed to drive while texting. they fly and they scan for food below down into the waterways and they don't notice what's in front of them. the industrial turbines and they smack into them. they've done a number of different things on tops of football stadiums, there is talk on these different wind turbines that make them both more efficient and safe for birds, but they still have this old technology subsidized by you the taxpayer killing these bald eagles. >> 80,000 hunting birds are
killed every year by these wind farms. what is so startling about this report, it's a symbol of patriotism here in the united states, the bald eagle is. if you put your green hat on, the motives from the president were good, trying to help out the renewable energy industry, but you know what? the real issue, the real reason we are talking about this this morning because the associated press did an expose saying that the obama administration had been turning a blind eye this had been happening all the time. all these wind farms killing these bald eagles and they never charged or prosecuted anybody. >> this is an assault not just on the bald eagle, but the rule of law. the idea laws are passed, but apply only to people who aren't in favor with the people in power. people run wind farms because they give a lot of money to obama or like green energy. they don't have to abide by law.
>> and the oil companies getting ready for these large carbon taxes. let us know what you think about this bald eagle story. go to our facebook page. we'll read your e-mails and tweets later in the show. parents, no time for your kids? strap them in this chair with an ipad attached to it. take a look. it's called the activity seat. it's causing a whole lot of controversy. we'll show it when we come back. and to keep our commitments. and we've made a big commitment to america. bp supports nearly 250,000 jobs here. through all of our energy operations, we invest more in the u.s. than any other place in the world. in fact, we've invested over $55 billion here in the last five years - making bp america's largest energy investor. our commitment has never been stronger.
is a really big deal.u with aches, fever and chills- there's no such thing as a little flu. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so call your doctor right away. tamiflu treats the flu in people 2 weeks and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting.
welcome back a new poll shows majority of americans think the u.s. has become less important and less powerful player on the world stage according to a new pew research center survey. that's because of president obama's broken promises, like this one. >> we have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region that that's a red line for us. and that there would be enormous
consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons or the use of chemical weapons. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health plan, period. >> deputy editor of the editorial page of the "wall street journal," we are honored to have him with us this morning. >> good to be with you. >> you call this the red line presidency. what does that mean? >> what it means is that this president keeps putting down red lines. a red line is a commitment, it's a promise. we just saw two of them. red line on the syrian chemical weapons, the whole world expected after assad used those weapons the president would act to punish assad, even secretary of state did, his national security advisor. he pivots and does a deal with vladimir putin to get rid of chemical weapons. to this day, they are still there. the war goes on. as to the obama care promises you can keep your doctor or health plan, that is demonsably
false at this time. when the red line vanishes, the president of the united states is no longer fully believable. it relates to that poll about people thinking our status in the world is falling because our allies themselves are worried about the president's commitments and credibility. >> it almost doesn't matter what the policy itself is. for instance, you could disagree with the idea of bombing syria and still recognize when the president promises he is going to, he has to to preserve the credibility of the united states. >> that is exactly right. we just yesterday, secretary hagel, we saw him in afghanistan, he was in the middle east reassuring allies the deal obama decided to do with iran doesn't mean that we will support them militarily. vice president biden toured through asia telling the japanese and the south koreans the same thing. talker, i can't remember any
administration in the entire post war period, republican or democratic, having to send high officials into regions like that to assure our allies that we would support them if confrontation. >> it seems to be the less powerful america is the safer the world is, but it strikes me the opposite is likely true. >> the president seems to think diplomacy only, diplomacy, he is obsessed with doing diplomacy with countries like iran. our allies immediately default to the implications of where a policy like that is going, if it is primarily diplomacy and the threat of military action isn't sitting behind it. if you've got allies believing that the military option is off the table, the adversaries are going to step forward. so you have a very unstable situation. >> they live in a world with fewer illusions than ours. >> i think so. parents, it's time for your kids, but you don't have any? strap them in this chair with

two and one on the way and our tech expert, mom of two. >> cassie, what do you make of this? lazy or good parenting? >> i think technology is here to stay whether we like it or not. study by common sense media found 40% of kids under the age of 2 have been on a mobile device, played a game or played a video. i think it's up to parenting how much is too much. i think we need to have an honest conversation about how technology is going to fit into our lives and into our kids' lives. there are benefits and there are drawbacks. >> that study cassie is just mentioning, is that a bad thing though? we don't want to elevate that and say it's great. kids at 5 months old have been using an ipad five straight months. >> this is what i believe. there are studies. children under the age of 2 should not be put in front of
devices that have technology, the brain is developing. these are the most important times of a child's life newborn to two years. these are facts. the fact that people are going to put them in front of this new device, it's not okay. maybe in moderation once in a while it. understand parents need time and they need a break, but it's about in those first two years of child development playing music to them, reading books, coddling them,ing swaddling them, being with them parent, one-on-one interactions as a parent or caregiver. they don't need to be plopped in front of a mobile device with technology. a child's brain needs to develop properly. >> doesn't she have a point here, we need that human interaction. that eye contact with our children for their actual development. >> absolutely. yes. i don't think anything can take the place of social interaction. i'm not thinking you should plop your kid in front of this for two hours. i don't think that's beneficial.
i'm guilty. i have three kids under the age of 6. i have a 2-year-old. when i need to make a phone call for work, i've given my kid the ipad to play on there a few minutes to do it. i had a kid that was colicy. i would turn elmo on the tv and that would calm her down. i think it's about parenting and finding what's good for your kid. i think a lot of these apps are very educational. i don't know how beneficial it would be for a newborn. i don't know what they can see as far as a screen goes because they see shadows and that kind of thing. from what i read about fisher-price, it's minimal. they have apps on there you can play soft music. i don't know if i would actually use something like that. i think there's a lot of parents out there that would agree. using a little bit here and there, it's not going to be a horrible thing for a child. >> in moderation. really what worries me and scares me, i know a lot of times
parents aren't going to be around. they could be at work. there could be a caregiver or somebody else taking care of the child and they might get lazy. the kid might be crying and they might say let me put the baby in the little chair and let him or her watch the ipad. this could go on for hours before the person realizes the baby is doing this. what kind of damage is it doing to the baby's brain? >> why don't we put that in the chair in face time and i'll go off to work and no one is watching the kid. i can see the kid there. thanks for joining us this morning. clayton morris on twitter, tell me what you think about this debate. too much, too little? weigh in. i would love to hear your thoughts. coming up here, campbell under fire tweeting out this picture. was this inappropriate or no big deal at all? and they were once his biggest backers. now the president is losing support from young folks. they want to see obama care gone. what happened?
our special panel weighs in on that. there they are. when i first got shingles it started on my back. and i had like this four inch band of bumps that ce around to the front of my body. and the pain from it was- it was excruciating. i did not want anyone to brush into me to cause me more pain than i was already enduring. i wanted to just crawl up in a ball and just, just wait till it passed.
come here. come here. >> here we have it. two scaredy cats making dogs shake in their paws. showing dogs too scared to walk by the cats. do they ever get to pass? eventually the dogs got up the nerve to walk by even though the cats did try to attack them there. i don't think they know how big they are. they are feisty though. now to headlines this morning. caught in the act. this new video this morning appearing to show two men stealing parts from the porsche actor paul walker was in when he crashed and died. tmz recording walker's fans recorded the whole thing, men
running up to the tow truck taking off those parts. one of the men reportedly 18-year-old jamesonwitty. he posted this on instagram and is now behind bars. a reality tv director shot dead at his home. police say three people tried to force their way into the l.a. home and a fight broke out. 42-year-old james marcus howe was killed, his wife seriously wounded in the attack. the shooting appears to be a random act of violence. they see no obvious motive for it. december 7, the day which will live in infahmili infamy. the attack on pearl harbor. on friday hawaiians held a day of remembrance at the uss arizona memorial. more than 120 american troops died in that early morning sneak attack that pulled the united states into world war ii.
those are your headlines. let's get outside to rick for the forecast. >> you know what is such a good thing about the month of december? our viewers come to new york. it's great. a big crowd is out here. >> i have a shout out to dave and danny in lexington, kentucky. i love you all so much. can't wait to see you all. good health and good holidays to everybody. >> so concise and nice what she said. we agree. take a look at the weather maps. another great picture from keterring, ohio. nice snowy morning. a few inches there. take a look at this. these are the differences from where you should be this time of year. you see that big area where we have temperatures around 40 degrees below what you would typically be experiencing this time of year.
this is what it means. minus 32 in montana, minus 2 in denver. the wind chill is extreme. minus 47 in glasgow. want to show you, this is the future radar of the storm across parts of the southwest. snow across southern california in across the mountains and out across the east. this moves in by tonight and tomorrow. another ice storm moving in toward the mid atlantic. >> minus 47 with the wind chill there. awful. young people aren't buying it. a new gallop poll showing they disapprove of obama care. young people picked president obama if they could call or replace an elected official. millennials aren't buying the president's appeals like this. >> if you're a student body president, set up a conference on campus. if you work at a nonprofit, open your doors and use your e-mail list to help people learn the facts. if you've got a radio show,
spread the word on air. if you're a bartender, have a happy hour. >> wow. we've got a panel of millennials. good morning, everybody. thank you for being with us this morning. what are the reasons for the down turn? >> it's simple. we weren't given a seat at the table when they were formulating obama care. we are responsible for hosting the maximum weight of obama care. the lies about decreasing premium. that's a lie. premiums are rising. keeping your doctor, that's a lie. keeping your plans, that's not happening. these are problems with young people. that's why they want to recall obama. 39% of young people are out of work right now. that's something that's come out of the most recent jobs numbers. then you see employment rose last numbers in november. they went up to i think 11.2%
when the rest of americans dropped. young people are struggling in this economy and struggling due to obama. he can no longer blame bush. >> new unemployment numbers, 7%. that was good, but not for young people. youth unemployment remains at 15.9% from generation opportunities. what is this going to mean for president obama now? are young millennials going to buy into him wooing them with speech is like that? >> i think january 1st when people can go to the doctor, that is a big day for millions of americans. when you parse out the harvard poll, it was taken at the height of the negative website coverage beginning of november. more recent polling shows 3/4 of young people would support democrats, would support barack obama if the election were held today over mitt romney. they're disillusioned largely because he's not progressive
enough. not because they don't like obama care. >> the young millennials are struggling to find work these days. the one good thing president obama can say is you're able to stay on your parents' plan until you're 26. is that enough for him to hang his hat on at the moment? >> i think for young people, political opinions form when you come into age. this is a really critical time for both democrats and republicans to see who can snatch up this next generation. what i think you're seeing among millennials, we want people to have health insurance. we want health insurance. we are coming into a job market that isn't treating young people very well. there's a lot of uncertainty and a lot of cynicism. they want the system to work. i don't care who does it, the private sector, the government, let's make this work. that's why i can't wait to see our generation get into positions of power. we want to work together to solve problems. >> i can't wait to see what happens in midterm elections and 2016.
we've seen some democrats running for the hills on this. what's this going to mean? >> i think they changed that tune. clearly this week was the week they are going on offense, the president going on offense. that's smart for them. the same poll had 3/4 of young people saying they disapprove of republicans in congress. like she said, it's not just about obama here, but what are the alternatives to any proposals the democrats are putting forth. millennials are not supportive of republicans either. >> how do you respond to that. >> the buck stops for the president. >> what are your plans? >> go to the -- >> no, the republican. >> our proposal is across state lines. >> what about those uninsured before? >> you reduce health cost. that allows people to get health insurance. it's unfair. it takes away people's rights and liberties to have choice in
life. >> i had 124 different plans to choose from. and they were all affordable. >> if you have real insurance, real competition happen in america and that's what we are founded on. it's false competition. >> i want to give you the final word on this. >> the unemployment is an issue. obama care certainly an issue. obama care is not going to work if these young, healthy young invincibles do not sign up. >> exactly. only 22% of people aged 18 to 29 planned on signing up for insurance. if this is the law of the land and there isn't any reform to this, we need young people to sign up. if not, just like you said, we need to have a seat at the table. that's why millennials are apathetic about this whole situation. before, their interests have been represented in congress. what you really see is a generation paying much more attention to what's going on in washington saying we are going to have a voice and seat at the table.
>> when you get out of school, you're having a hard time finding a job. you realize how much more you're going to pay for health care. it's very upsetting. thank you so much. 42 minutes after the hour. she just wanted to join the army. she didn't meet the weight requirement. this morning, her ultimate mission is complete. she has lost over 100 pounds and her dream of joining the military is coming true. that woman is joining us live. and the company tweeting out this picture as a tribute to pearl harbor. was it meant as an honor? actually sparked an online firestorm. was this inappropriate? your e-mail and tweets are pouring in. first a check with neil cavuto. good morning. looks like the young, the restless could care less about enrolling in obama care. how much that could cost you as a result. >> then, is the wage rage for real? are unions using fast food

welcome back about. quick headlines now for you. supermodel heidi klum breaking hearts of fans around the world revealing she will never strut her stuff in lingerie again. the former victoria's secret angel who turned 40 in june says the thought of walking on the catwalk in her underwear makes her feel uncomfortable. carlos beltran is saying so long to st. louis and heading back to the big apple to play with the yankees. he agreed to a three-year $45 million deal. the 36-year-old played for the

mission complete. it took her just over one year to do it, but our next guest shed over 100 pounds in order to accomplish her ultimate goal, joining the united states army. joining us now to share her story is corrina douglas. remarkable story, nice to see you. congratulations, by the way. >> thank you. >> how did you do it? we're sitting here with all the -- certainly the holiday pies are about to start showing up at the house. you got the bunt cake and jell-o mold, everything else. how did you do it, how did you lose 100 pounds? >> dedication, motivation. i work with the guys at the station all the time. i work out seven days a week and diet. i avoid any situation that could give me pie and cookies and all that stuff. >> i understand, though, kind of
what gave you the motivation. you're on this whale watching trip and you see the people looking overboard and almost idolizing members of the coast guard. when you realized you didn't meet the weight requirement, did your heart sink to your stomach or how did you feel at that time? >> i knew i was heavy, just didn't realize how heavy i was. seeing how the people reacted, just the coast guard in gem, i wanted someone to look at me that way. >> that is so nice. now that you are 100 -- more than 100 pounds lighter which, again, is amazing. anybody who has tried to do that knows that is a remarkable affect. what's your next step, where are you going to go? >> i'm supposed to go down on december 12th and until then i push myself as hard as i can possibly go so i can be ready for basic. then i'm going to see how far i can take it. >> i understand you worked out with the soldiers to get yourself ready for all this. what was that like? you're not even there yet but you're working out with soldiers.
>> it couldn't be more inspiring, knowing that a soldier's what i want to become. they did it on their own free time. they didn't have to run with me. it was just a really good thing to kind of look forward and say, that's what i want to be. they're faster than me and they run ahead me so i'm kind of like i'm chasing them and chasing my dream in the same aspect. >> what about other young girls watching the show this morning, maybe struggling with some of the same issues you what do you say to them? >> i would definitely say for people who inspire you, who motivate you, things that you want to become, like, surround yourself with that. literally, if you walked into my room, it would be army stuff everywhere. everything you could possibly think of is in my room. surround yourself with that and just don't give up. you're going to have days where you feel like i'm never going to make that. i'm never going to get there. just keep pushing. lie to yourself. i lied to myself so much. like 4:00 in the morning and i'm running in the freezing cold
rain. i lied to myself. i totally love this, this is just what i want. lie to yourself and just keep going. >> that's great. >> you're going to be sworn in when? >> december 12th. >> well, congratulations. let us know how it goes. >> thank you. >> it sounds like you're feeling great. >> definitely. >> merry christmas. >> thank you, you too. thank you. >> more "fox and friends." ♪ [ alarm sound for malfunctioning printer ] [ male announcer ] you've reached the age where you've learned a thing or two.

we got a bunch of e-mails on our bald eagle story. this is from bill in new hampshire. he says, now the national bird is being targeted. is the american flag next? >> monty says this, if that same eagle even nested within 15 miles of an oil or natural gas drilling rig, they would not be allowed to operate at all. yet the green energy industry gets a pass on killing the same
bird. hypocrisy. >> weigh in on our facebook page. join us there for the after the show show there as well. in the after the show show, rick will give us more examples of the melting arctic ice caps. >> thanks for joining us. raise the wage! raise the wage! raise the wage! >> super sizing the wage war. fast food workers in hundreds of cities walking off the job this week. it's all part of union-backed protests, demanding 15 bucks an hour. and president obama agreeing it's time for a raise in the minimum wage. >> i'm going to keep pushing until we get a higher minimum wage for hard-working americans across the entire country. it will be good for our economy. >> but, as the unemployment rate is heading in the right direction, will this wage hike have jobs taking a hike? hi, everyone, this is "bulls and bears." let's get right to it.
