9:04 am
places like assuigo county, new york, seen several inches of snow and more is on the way. chief meteorologist rick reichmuth joining us now from the fox weather center with what we expect in the next several hours. rick? >> more snow. the snow is the lake effect snow they have this week and not at all to do with this storm system we are talking about. 58 inches of snow. five feet of snow this week across the shore of lake ontario. cold air is solidly in place across the north. across areas of the northeast. zero degrees right now in car boo, maine, gives you an -- cariboo, maine. look at indiana and illinois and toward ohio. we see it pred across the northeast. tonight we see the snow get heavy. there is a big change.

areas across across northeast, coastal areas will see the snow we deal with turning to rain. it will keep the snow levels down from new york city to boston, expect to see three to five inches of snow accumulate on the coast. the interior sections are where we will see a few spots over a foot. that is good news across the ski areas. if there is one bright part to this, it's that a weekend. people can stay inside. >> absolutely. a lot of white stuff on the way. all right. thank you very much. >> you bet. >> here is something that might give you a reason to pause. your private cell phone conversation can be exposed by the national security agency. a new document obtained by the "washington post" revealed the n.s.a. capabilities to crack encryption codes. molly henneberg has more with what this means. >> there is a type of encryption developed in the 1980s and used in the vast majority of the cell phones worldwide ; specifically the phones using 2g technology
9:06 am
that the n.s.a. is able to crack. meaning listen in to conversations and read text messages. that is according to the "washington post." a secret document by the former n.s.a. contractor edward snowden and says they can break that encryption. the n.s.a. is prohibited from eavesdropping domestically on the u.s. citizens but can eavesdrop on people overseas. the agency told the "post" -- "throughout history nations used encryption to protect their secrets and today, terrorists, cyber criminals, human traffickers and others use technology to hide their activity." the intelligence community tries to counter that in order to understand the intent of foreign adversaries and prevent them from bringing harm to americans and allies." part of the concern here is that americans may be targeted by outside intelligence groups. matthew blaze, cryptologist expert told the paper, if the n.s.a. knows how to do this,
9:07 am
presumably other intelligence agencies which may be more hostile to the united states discovered how to do this, too. this comes out at a time that the white house is just received results of a presidential task force, looking in to the snowden leaks. the activities of the n.s.a. that report arrived at the white house yesterday. now the president team will determine what and how much to make public. >> part of the process that the president asked for is one that will allow us to be as transparent as possible. initiate reforms. they can give people more confidence. >> the obama administration says the white house review of the results will be done in january. and the president will make some remarks on this top ib. uma? >> thank you.
9:08 am
with the continued problems tied to get folks to sign up for insurance on healthcare.gov there are deadlines approaching to make sure folks get coverage by january 21. december 23 is now the deadline to enroll in obamacare if you plan to have you or your family covered as the new year begins. a lot at stake for the white house as the roll-out moves ahead. joining us now, fox news political analyst juan williams. great to have you here. >> thank you. >> we learned this week that the numbers, the roles are creeping up to more than 300,000 or so. what does that mean in terms of getting folks to get on board and the stakes that the white house at this time? are they in panic mode as the deadline looms? >> i don't know if they are in panic mode. the roll-out was so disastrous it took time to register people.
9:09 am
produce the 7 millionkeeping that the congressional budget office predicted by the end of marm. what we are seeing now, they make the changes to healthcare, the healthcare law to try to smooth the transition past that january first date where they imagine the next big crisis looms. when people can't get coverage or sign up to find out the insurance company doesn't know they sign up. more people apply for medication and prescription drugs and find they can't get it and scream bloody murder. >> that a big point. something we found out in a big way. how do you think they will solve that? >> they are putting pressure on the insurance company to extent the date by which people register or pay for insurance coverage. they allow them to go out of the network for doctors and other medical attention, hospitals and the like, past the january 1 date.
9:10 am
to avoid political explosion that comes with another big problem. >> we had doctors this week testifying, saying that they are at odds with knowing how they treat their patients if they don't know if they are if the people have the coverage. if they are on the hook for the cost of getting paid. doctors or the hospitals themselves because they're not sure. >> we will find out. talking about a population in the individual market you are not sure how it will play out. what you are seeing is an effort to say to insurance company make it as easy as possible. cover everybody in the interim period. the change is dramatic and it could be negative for so many people it could botch the deal. this churning that is going
9:11 am
on, with the doctor, patient, prescription drug is small percentage of the overall plan. if you are poor and you are on medicaid, or ellerly on medicare. most people have health insurance through the employers. they are not affected. for this segment, there is a huge problem. >> a political note, at what point do you think we'll see more democrats running away from anything tied to obamacare? break ranks as the election get closer? >> if the insurance companies say we didn't get 7 million but we have young people and variety of people and it will hold together and work. democrats then will feel comfortable and confident. if it doesn't, you will see exodus and the christmas season, white tailed deer and doe heading for woods.
9:12 am

9:13 am
moon rover that is called jade rabbit to separate later today and roll off and explore for three months. u.s. scaled back on the space exploration, should we worry about china pulling ahead. tom jones is on the phone with reaction. great to have you here. >> what is your reaction that china is joining the group of those who landed on the moon? >> it's great they are exploring the moon and showing interest there. i hope it revives interest here. exploring it to follow up on the apollo astronaut discovery from four years ago. this is the first vehicle landing on the moon since the late 1970s. this should wake us up. it could help us lower the cost of exploring the space overall. >> interesting news that china is accomplishing a great feat like this. but psychologically, do you think that folks at nasa are wincing a bit, knowing we
9:14 am
haven't had space exploration on the moon in 40 years? >> i think we should be waking up to this and paying attention. the obama administration canceled the plan to return to the move in this decade five years ago. since then we have done orbital mission but no plan to go to the surface. maybe this is an indication that it could be competitive arena or we might pay attention to this. if we can't duplicate what the chinese has done it now, it means that the chinese taken over the technical lead and planetary exploration here. we would be wise to follow up with the space station partners for example and put down a consortium that could duplicate the feat and follow up on what the chinese are doing. >> tom jones, great to have you here on your thoughts on what is a big day for china. >> thank you. >> take a look. you are seeing video just in to fox, volunteers laying wreaths at the arlington

9:21 am
unofficial spy mission when he disappeared. elizabeth prann joined us live on more what he was investigating and the white house's angry reaction to the story now coming out. >> that is right. hi, uma. the white house responded with much of what we have heard in the past. levinson was not a government employee when he went missing in iran. president secretary jay carney said this about the surfacing report. >> as there is an ongoing investigation in the disappearance, i won't comment further on what he may or may not have been doing in iran. i won't fact check the allegation in the story you referenced that we believe was highly responsible to public. >> after the "associated press" released this report, former f.b.i. agent robert levinson worked on unapproved c.i.a. mission in iran, the sources confirmed several analysts were involved in off-the-books collection
9:22 am
program and some cases the operatives didn't know they were gathering information for c.i.a. levinson could have been part of collection program of that nature. the last we have seen of him is the proof of life photo showing a frail and unkept captor three years ago. the family vied more than $2 million to prevent a lawsuit responding to the reports in part saying it's time for the u.s. government to step up a take care of one of its own. after nearly seven years the family should not be struggling to get through each day without the wonderful caring man. that we love so much. unapproved program run by a group of c.i.a. analysts resulted in at least eight people being fired or reprimanded. back to you. >> thank you very much. this week, house speaker john boehner unleashed a tirade on members of the tea party after critics of the new bipartisan budget deal are making it clear they don't like what is in the pending agreement. if boehner's rare abuse
9:23 am
signaling line in the sand between g.o.p. establishment and the tea party? what is the fall-out here and could the divisions spell real trouble for the g.o.p. as we head on the new year? joining us now governor mike huckabee here to weigh in on this and the hot button issues now. welcomegreement. have you here today. >> thank you. great to be with you. >> were you surprised to see boehner blow a gasket this week taking aim at the tea party? what impact do you think it will have on the growing divisions within the g.o.p.? >> well, i think he was showing a lot of frustration. i didn't sense he was taking it out on the tea party as a movement as he was some of the specific fund raising organizations that have made governing the washington more difficult because they create line of purity nobody can give up to, given the divided congress we are working with. when you have the senate under the control of harry reid. a bare majority in the house. white house in charge of the democrats, i mean the numbers are simple. you are not going to win your battles. boehner expressed frustration
9:24 am
saying it's an owl or nothing proposition. in politics when you have all or nothing, the now or never mind set you get nothing and you get it forever. >> some people think it that this means boehner and established republicans don't see tea party as relevant anymore. >> i think they do. mitch mcconnell, i watched him the other day and he was clear saying he agreed with the tea party philosophically. the tea party as a movement is incredibly healthy. vital in bringing people back to understanding the constitutional responsibilities of the branches of government. we have to get debt under control. we can't keep spending. the tea has been an immeasurable benefit to the country and conservative cause. but when the movement becomes focused in a handful of groups that are raising funds to attack republicans and the criteria for being attacked is the difference you might have in the tactic of the party, not the philosophy of the party, that is what boehner
9:25 am
and the others are reacting to. i understand that frustration. governing is tough. no perfect answer. politics is not theology. it's easy to be pure when you are talking about theology. if you talk about the politics, it's an art. not a pure science. >> moving on from other news this week, apart from boehner's remarks, we are learning that those on the healthcare exchange, the folks are going to see in many cases higher premiums and very high deductibles in some cases up to $12,000, a lot of folks won't be a able to afford anyway so in essence they won't be covered by health insurance. >> this is another broken promise from barack obama. that you can keep your doctor and it won't go up. he said the healthcare cost would be $2,500 less per year per family. he was specific about the number. he didn't just say it will go down. he said it will go down by
9:26 am
$2,500. that is not happening for most people enroll in obamacare and won't happen for people who did enroll. the premiums are having to be increased to cover the cost of the people who are now coming in the insurance pool who aren't going to pay anything. they were so head-strong and stubborn and cocky of their brilliant idea of obamacare they wouldn't listen. you can't pay more money out than you have coming in. somehow that is cheaper and save people money. common sense says it wouldn't work. >> ask you the news about you. is it true you are seriously making another run for white house in 2016? >> you know, uma, i told people i have not ruled that out. i will certainly take a strong, hard look at it i'm not trying to be coy or play the game. it's a matter that i do think that people who have governed are in a better position to
9:27 am
lead the country. we have had now five years under a president who never had governed before. he had been a legislator and absentee one at that. whether i'm the guy or somebody else, i'm confident that the republicans have an opportunity to goal the ship righted. it may not be me. we'll see. >> safe to say you are taking a look at it. >> sure! that is a fair assessment. ready make an announcement? not yet. >> what is coming up on your show tonight? >> one thing we have is john winter, a fox news employees who is this close going to jail. she refused to reveal her sources. this is a serious issue. americans say it doesn't of course me. it affects every american. they will tell yore startling story tonight on the show. great music, new york young
