homemade bombs. his main target was tracy murphy who was a librarian. he set off a bomb in the library and fired off five rounds before turning the gun on him. the attack lasted 80 seconds. claire david was shot at point blank range. >> i know that claire davis is a young woman of principle. she's a young woman of purpose. she is an innocent young lady and she was an innocent victim of an evil act of violence. >> overnight students, friends of hers holding a vigil for davis. >> love is the answer. that is the only answer. that is the only thing that will get us through this. >> the 17-year-old remains in critical condition. it is the worst firefighting disaster in arizona's history. now we're getting a listen to the last radio transmissions from 19 hot shot firefighters
3:04 am
killed back in june battling the yarnell hill wild fire. >> we're surrounded. clear for deployment. we're burning out around ourselves in the brush. and i'll give you a call when we are under the shelters. >> that was the last time the hot shots were heard that day. the transmissions recorded by a firefighter with a helmet camera. all right. you want some sports news now? >> i would love happy news. >> something happy. he's the youngest heisman trophy winner ever. watch this. >> winner is jamis winston, florida state university. >> there it is. the fsu quarterback is the second straight freshman quarterback to win. he beat alabama's a.j. macaroon. last year's winner, johnny manziel is in a landslide. he has been accused of sexual
3:05 am
assault. last week they announced no charges will be filed. they'll face auburn in the national championship game on january 6th. >> congratulations to him. auburn beat missou. >> i'm for alabama. another winter storm bringing freezing rain and snow slamming the midwest and northeast. we can testify to that. some areas getting up to a foot. nearly 1,000 flights have been canceled across america. the snow is causing traffic nightmares for people hoping to buy last-minute christmas present. janice dean is here. >> we stuck her outside in the elements. >> mccarron. >> i love being outside. i want to show you my brand-new fox news coat. >> lovely. >> see this fanciness. >> you look like a super model out there. your hair is flowing. >> no, my hair is going to be flat by the end of the show. tune in hour by hour to see the hair start to go down. for now i think it looks great. >> yes, it does. yes, it does. across the northeast we are dealing with yet another storm.
3:06 am
this is the fourth for parts of the northeast in just a matter of weeks. let's take a look at the radar. this was quite a doozy and with it brought, as you mentioned, snow, freezing rain, sleet and the worst of it right now is up towards new england. as we advance i'll show you where the worst of the snow, in some cases 6 to 12 even 18 inches of snow. you can see new york and philadelphia, d.c., the worst of it is over. actually, it's warmed up tremendously with all of this warm air creeping in from the south. it was in the 20s yesterday and we're into the 30s and even the 40s but it's going to be a quick hit of warm air. we're going to be back into the deep freeze this week. there's where the worst of the snow is moving into new england. some areas could get 18 inches plus, which i suppose is great for the ski resorts. it gets people into the holiday spirit. taking a look at the winter weather advisories, upstate new york towards maine we have winter weather warnings and those will be allowed to expire throughout the morning. in some cases we could see
3:07 am
easily 12 to 18 inches in the mountains of new england and the rest of the country should quiet down for the next several hours especially across the northeast, which is great. yeah, they are going to get hit, especially along the great lakes and up towards new england. maine has the jackpot of over 24 inches of snow. and there are your current temperatures. still very cold across the upper midwest and northern plains. 32 in new york, 40 in raleigh. it is 1 in caribou, maine. i think it's a good thing. gets people in the spirits. gets the christmas decorations out, silver lining? >> i agree. when you walk along 6th avenue, all of the decorations along the buildings. it's gorgeous. >> it is. this is like an old-fashioned christmas. this is the christmas that i grew up in in canada. snowstorm after snowstorm after snowstorm. real hearty december.
3:08 am
>> she's trying to make us all feel better. >> fire up the dog slets. janice, thank you very much. if you're home trying to sign up for obamacare, maybe some of you are, lots of luck. the website is down again. this time for maintenance. >> how often do you need maintenance? take a look. we're just checking a few moments ago. this is down at the moment. that's a live look at healthcare.gov. this comes on the heels of the news we received yesterday. remember the applications failing to make their way to insurance companies or at least some of them were making it to insurance companies were all botched and there was misinformation, weird social security numbers and names. now it turns out that nearly 15,000 signups didn't ever actually make it to the insurance companies at all. they went into some weird black hole like "star trek." >> the bermuda triangle of public policy. where have they gone? >> don't look at me. they're going to the wrong people. not at all. you think all of these people
3:09 am
have signed up and they're waiting for paperwork. one official called them orphans because they don't have any health insurance although they think they do. kathleen see beal yus thinks she may be inches towards maybe there's a little inefficiency with the program. she's saying the rollout should have been slower. >> wow. that was magnanimous of her. >> i'm looking at this as a silver lining. before insurance companies were complaining that they were receiving duplicate forms, they were getting multiple forms. >> now they're not being overwhelmed. >> now they're not getting them at all. >> imagine if you're one of these 15,000 people. by the way, that's just an estimate. there could be many more, we don't know. so chaotic, this process. good numbers are hard to come by. let's say you are one of these people. you think you have helts insurance. you get sick between now and some future point and you show up and it turns out you are not covered. will you be penalized? that's the real question. >> exactly. because by the deadline in the spring if you haven't signed up but you thought you did, then
3:10 am
you suddenly get hit with a penalty, some sort of monetary penalty. here's what the hhs says in their blog post. take a look. i think we have this on the screen. we do. we did. >> there you go. >> obamacare. these significant improvements are due to the technical fixes put in place by the end of november. >> end of november being the second hard deadline for fixing the website. >> right. >> meanwhile, young people still not signing up for obamacare. they're the lynchpin of course. without their contributions, this doesn't work economically. in washington, d.c., health care representatives have a new plan, target young people where they are. the district of columbia is sending people out to foot locker and denney's at 2:00 a.m. where not a single person has ever been to sign up young people for obamacare. >> so true. >> the idea, young people don't know enough if they knew how great obamacare was. if we could only tell them, they
3:11 am
would want to sign up. >> if we could go, every kid is hanging out at foot locker. >> in the middle of the night drunk at denney's and some guy shows up with a clipboard telling you to sign up for obamacare. >> all they're hearing about obamacare is from snl, leno, and the joking around and the criticism. so i guess they're just trying to be clever, trying to come up with a creative way, tucker, i don't know, laugh. i'm trying to come up with a positive spin. >> you might be right. when i was right i liked air jordans. i saw michael jordan wearing them so maybe i would go to the foot locker. they went to the foot locker because these new air jordans are going on sale. >> the whole 2:00 aunl at denney's. >> perfect time. you may not remember that you signed up. >> this is why "saturday night live" lately has been having fun with what's going on. usually they were sort of hands
3:12 am
off on president obama. lately though that is not the case. of course, we saw some joking around from the mandela memorial service with the interpreter and then some more obamacare. take a look. >> i experienced a series of unfortunate events. i mean, first, i got roped into taking a selfie with a blond female danish prime minister. some people said michelle was angry at me after that but i talked to her after yards and i can assure you, she was furious. then i got caught shaking hands with raul castro. in my defense, he told me he was edward james amos. and finally there was the sign language interpreter who clearly had no idea what he was doing, but those were mere distracti s distractions. some folks are bound to be frustrated, but many more are excited. and while i can't say that i've
3:13 am
been entirely thrilled with the results, -- >> we'll show you more of "saturday night live." >> the worm has turned. even snl making fun of him now. >> aaron is laughing. >> when it comes to super power status, is the united states starting to slip? the next guest says, yes, itand >> nor get cheering for the redskins, the warriors, the rebels. those names too offensive. now schools are banning them. we'll tell you about a school that did just that. ♪ ♪

3:17 am
welcome back. according to critics, president obama is similar to mika'il gorbachev who led to the demise of the country's global super power by surrendering on too many issues. it will cause america to lose our world super power status. here to weigh in, former white house advisor to iraq, injujere o'keefe. like mikhail gorbachev, explain. >> he was dealing with economic difficulties within the former soviet union while he was president and he sought to disengage with the world to reduce the monies that were being spent on military posture throughout the globe. unfortunately, the steps that he took backwards ultimately led to
3:18 am
the complete unraveling of the former soviet union and its demise and disappearance. we have our allies in the middle east in the south china sea area completely confused as to this new isolationist policy of this president. asia and not engaging obviously. we have iran, no doubt in my mind has positioned itself with the agreement with the west for a break through nuclear capability in a matter of three or five years. and it's frighteningly similar. >> we saw president obama having a conciliatory tone to the world. do you see roll backs in military might and power? >> it's not necessarily roll backs in military might, it's just a strategy that he's implementing. i truly believe he's an
3:19 am
internationalist in his outlook of the world. i don't believe he holds america to be exceptional by any means, and i think he's looking for a new benign status quo to set in with the belief that all will be fine going forward. that's not how history works. >> right. >> i mean, what he is setting us up for in the middle east is catastrophic to say the least. i strongly feel that the announcements coming out the last couple of weeks regarding iran is just simply another effort to curtail whatever israel might decide to do in its own defense. >> do you think that the administration is self-aware that this is actually happening, that we are taking a more benign stance in the world? do you think that they're aware of this? >> national security experts within the department of defense, the state department, they're well aware of this, but president obama is the president. he's the commander in chief and he has the final say along with his national security advisors
3:20 am
internally, political fortis what should be the posture. >> read jeremiah's piece. he's taking some pretty tough positions. great to see you this early sunday morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you. coming up on the show, expressing your love on paper can be hard to do. letters from a sick father changed a family. one family's christmas newsletter, anything but conventional. ♪ dancing in the front yard night and day and the neighbors walk by and this is what they say ♪ ♪ are they christmas jamming ♪ they are christmas jamming >> and the best part is how it ends. we have the full video coming up ♪ ♪ i take prilosec otc each morning for my frequent heartburn.

letter of love to his daughter writing no greater joy and fulfillment god has blessed with me in my middle years than you. i love you so much and you have been such a pleasure. god has uniquely created you. letters from their sick dad had a profound impact on the kids' lives. the next guest made it her mission to share the importance of writing meaningful letters to everybody you love in your life. >> jody, thank you for coming on. >> my pleasure. >> what does this mean? you are encouraging people who are not sick, who are not looking down the barrel of death to do this ahead of time? >> absolutely. my passion in life is to encourage people to take the time now to write letters that people love. life is very hard and all of us are very well versed in what's wrong with us but maybe not so well versed in what's right with us. my friend encouraged me writing letters to his children, i have
3:26 am
just kind of made it my mission to encourage people living, sick or healthy, to write letters. >> your friend larry passed away nine months later? >> right. >> right at that time you had two other friends in their 40s pass away. >> i did. >> you were inspired to pass on this message. one of the things you say you have to note the difference between appreciation and affirmation. >> i think appreciation is easier. we can appreciate a meal or what somebody does for us. what i encourage people to do is affirm the character qualities that people do. a lot of times we see things that people may not see. >> in order to do this you need to face up to the fact that you're going to die. >> yes. i would say that opposed to having that as the focus, focus on the people that you love.
3:27 am
life is so temporary these days, 140 characters in a tweet and text messages that go away. i'm saying take in time to put in writing to the people you care about why they're so special. >> some people do have a problem verbalizing or writing it down. three very simple steps. express your feelings for the individual which seems to make sense. let it out. >> it doesn't need to be that difficult. i just say to people, do a one page letter. i'm not talking about writing a long book, just write a one page letter. so that would be the first step, yeah, express how you feel about them. but to me the heart of it is, focus on what's special and unique about the person that you're writing to. >> yeah. explain that a little bit, who you you would do that? >> well, i just give people a lot of character call. a lot of turns to look at to kind of spur their writing and to focus on a couple of things about that person that you think
3:28 am
are so special. >> i did. four years ago my husband was diagnosed with stage four liver cancer. i tried very hard to encourage him to write letters to his four children. he couldn't do it. he passed away three months after he was diagnosed and so never able to get the letters written. one of the things that really struck me was the day of his funeral one of my stepdaughters came home from the funeral and sat down next to me saying, did dad write me a letter. it broke my heart to say no to her. so that i would say just kind of fuels my passion to encourage people to do this. >> you think if it's rough getting over those, this tip is great, describe your hopes, prayers and dreams for the person you're writing a letter to. what are you hoping for? that might be easier to come out. >> always remember this. if there are one or two things you would want somebody you love to always remember, to put that into writing. i do say to people though, don't
3:29 am
say these are two things that i love about you and if you would just fix one of the things. >> no, probably not something people want to read. >> judy, this is really inspiring mission that you're on. >> thank you, tucker. i appreciate it. next on the run down, a dramatic moment a man tumbles under an oncoming train and makes it out alive. >> the warriors, the rebels, the redskins, those names apparently too offensive for a school. we are going to tell you all about t. they're being banned. and happy gilmore gets remarkable distance off the tee. now thanks to our next guest, you can, too. we have the holiday golf gifts you need. chaos coming up. ♪ ♪

milligrams so we taper you off and it's an actual medical way to end your addiction to nicotine. whereas, ecigarettes, we can't control how much nicotine is in them. >> because we don't know? >> we don't know. they're being advertised on television? >> well, there's no -- you know, the cigarette ads in magazines, tv, newspapers there's no cigarette ads anymore. ecigarettes, it's crazy what's happening in the media. they're markeding it to young people. you see all the flavors, chocolate, bubble gum. those are targeted for young people. we're seeing more and more young people with ecigarettes now. it has turned into close to a $2 billion a year business. >> interesting. doctor, thanks a lot for that. >> thank you. >> this is one of those stories that i think most people may not even be aware of but it will be interesting to find out what's in them. >> it will. thank you. two years after a helicopter was shot out of the sky in

4:03 am
librarian who kicked him off the debate team months earlier. pierson set off a bomb in the library and set off five rounds before turning the gun on himself. he hit someone, claire davis, 17 years old, a senior. she was shot at point blank range. >> i know that claire davis is a young woman of principle. she's a young woman of purpose. she is an innocent young lady, and she was an innocent victim of an evil act of violence. >> davis remains in critical condition. paul davis laid to rest at forest lawn cemetery in california. walker was in the middle of filming the seventh installment in the "fast and furious" franchise. his younger brother, cody, may be asked to replace him. he bears a striking resemblance

4:05 am
things like the weather. >> drama. >> look at these pictures. >> yeah. this is crazy. >> i'm supposing this is out of the northeast. don't quite know where, but if you look on the map here, it could be anywhere across the northeast where they have over half a foot of snow. parts of new england could get easily over a foot, maybe 18 inches especially across maine. but these are some of the snow totals. the storm isn't done yet. so new york, over 7 inches here. connecticut, 7 inches. bronxville, new york, 7 inches. newark, new jersey, 6 inches. the problem is this is the fourth storm we've seen in a matter of a couple of weeks. people are tired of the snow. this is a quick mover, that's the good news. the warm air is actually moving in. much of new york city now is just a puddle of water and the problem is the temperatures are cold so that could freeze. people are urnled to be careful on the roadways because they could be really slick.

4:07 am
crucial elements of obamacare, delayed enacting regulations, delayed workers safety and pollution controls for industrial boilers, etc., etc., etc., because they thought these would be controversial during the election. >> and as the piece points out, that the obama administration repeatedly said that any of these delays until after the election were coincidental. it was purely coincidental. politics was not at play. but a number of administration officials went on the record for this piece to say, in fact, no, this was all part of the plan, to hold it until after the election so that the election wouldn't be swayed one way or the other or negatively against the obama administration. >> right. because if something controversial gets picked up by the media, gets talked about, it could potentially sway the elections. why not avoid talking about it in the first place by not getting it passed. >> in other words, if people knew what they were really for, they wouldn't vote for them so on the one hand they say these are vitally important protections for americans but we can't let anyone know we
4:08 am
actually believe this stuff because we would lose the election. it's a little bit like if you like your doctor, you can keep it. if you like your health plan you can keep it. they knew that was it's called lying. >> the officials that were interviewed in this piece apparently, they're supposed to go to the desk agent. the desk agent is supposed to look through the information and look through all of this. they call them mother may i meetings accordsing to this setting. >> school master. >> but the political wing of the white house is not supposed to be controlling epa or hhs. it's supposed to be independent agencies working on the public's behalf to do the right thing. some pollster is telling them what rules they can enact before the election? >> focus grouping it. it's remarkable. the new information this morning on part of obamacare, some of those regulations and rollouts we know from the washington post were held back, delayed as a
4:09 am
result of politics. we know that 15,000 obamacare people went on the website, got their application done, thought they were good to go, 15,000 have had your application, poof, vanish into a black hole. insurance companies and obama administration doesn't know where they are. >> kathleen sebelius and the hhs blog, they're all saying, you know, things are going the way they're supposed to be. the technical fixes have been put in place. there have been significant improvements is the term that they're using. meanwhile, you have people in illinois, for instance, legal immigrants who have not resided in that state for five years, they're not eligible. but they're being told they're eligible. they're signing up for health care. they think they have health care. >> obamacare at its core is magic. you have, you know, 15,000 -- >> harry potter. >> bermuda triangle.
4:10 am
nobody knows how it works. sometimes it works, other times your application vanishes. >> that's not the worst. 15,000 man on january 1st you think you're covered and you won't even know because the insurance companies never received your application. how about this story this morning out of washington state? this is even more troubling. that in washington state the state exchange up there called washington health plan finder, that website is currently down, by the way, so if you wanted to go there and check it out, you can't. individuals have logged on. when you set up your account you set a date at which you want that money removed from your account. folks are waking up weeks earlier than when they told the website to take their money and finding out that the bank accounts have been drained of their money weeks beforehand. one woman said she found out $800 in the negative in her account. >> can i say something? >> please. >> at least they know they have health care. >> a positive spin on it. >> it's awesome. it works perfectly unless you get in a car accident and get
4:11 am
cancer or need an appendectomy. who would give his routing number to obamacare? you go on the obamacare website and it says, give us your checking account information. sorry to be cynical. i would not do that. >> we're sitting here being snarky, but the fact is one case of a person who thinks they have heal health care who will be relying on that and may need it and, a, not even is going to get it but, b, has to go through a whole rigamarole to try to get it. it's scary. >> $800 is a lot of money so imagine waking up and this woman, one of these many, many people have weighed in on this facebook page out of washington sta state. you know why they're going to facebook? the website is being down. they're told to go to the website to fix it and it's down. they call the help line and they can't get through. they had to post and message on facebook. she's $800 in the negative in her account. she has bills to pay, it's

4:17 am
it's a first step in where this needs to go. what we'd like to see is we'd like to see a grand jury that would have the power to call people forward and have the power to account for what's going on in our military today. >> karen, why do you think it's taken this long? >> well, i think this is a touchy subject for congress to deal with, actually, because you're talking about dealing with the possible missteps of very high ranking military leaders in the strategy of this war and the administration so i think that it's probably a very touchy subject and i think a lot of people really have tried -- very much tried to stop the discussion on this issue. >> bill, what kind of specific questions do you want answered during this hearing? you'll have the opportunity now. >> okay, well, yeah, there are several. one, we know that there were seven afghans aboard that
4:18 am
chopper that night that were not the same names of the men who were on the manifest. there may be a simple answer to that, but we know that's a fact. to this point the d.o.d. has not come forward with those answers. there are many things that we do have answers to that happened that night and about the way that we're engaging and not engaging the enemy in this war that we have answers to that we want to know why. we want to know why our forces, our men and women are being forced to submit to this enemy? we want to know why they're not allowed free assault fire when they're going into hot landing zones. we want to know why we're having to fight with antiquated equipment over there where there's millions and billions of dollars granted and given to al qaeda and insurgents in the middle east yet our warriors in afghanistan have to fight with second rate equipment and the answers go right to the top.
4:19 am
they go right to the top and, you know, this fish is stinking from the head to the tail. and, you know, clayton, today we hear that karzai wants an apology from president obama for civilian casualties in afghanistan. if this president needs to apologize to anybody, i'll tell you right now he better not step across that line and apologize for our military in afghanistan. if he needs to apologize to anybody, he needs to apologize to the american people and to the families who now will not have people, fathers, husbands, sons and daughters sitting around the christmas dinner table because many of these lives lost in afghanistan are unnecessary. like i said, it goes right to the white house. >> you're not alone in those sentiments. karen and bill -- >> could i add something quickly?
4:20 am
>> please. >> this is the message we're trying to get to the american people. we feel like if they understood what was happening in afghanistan, they would be outraged. we understand people die in war. we've never complained. we understand war is necessary, but what we don't understand is why we're fighting under the current rules of engagement tying our soldiers hands. let me give you a couple of numbers because numbers don't lie. in the first eight years of war we had as many wounded in action as we've had in this past year, one year alone as manies wounded in action as there were in the first eight years of our afghanistan campaign. not only that, the death toll has more than doubled since 2009 when this president took office, when this administration decided that we would win hearts and minds rather than wars. and the cost of that is human lives. these are not numbers, they're not statistics, they're people's children, people's fathers, little grandchildren laid a wreath on their daddy's grave yesterday to kick off their
4:21 am
christmas season. so it's not statistics, these are people. that's what we're trying to get across to america, stand up and defend your defenders. it's pastime. >> well, you are both wonderful advocates for this and we will monitor this hearing very closely. karen and bill vaughan, thank you very much for joining us. merry christmas my mantra? family first. but with less energy, moodiness, and a low sex drive, i saw my doctor. a blood test showed it was low testosterone, not age. we talked about axiron. the only underarm low t treatment that can restore t levels to rmal in about 2 weeks in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than8

good morning, everybody. happy sunday. it is december 15th. i'm juliet huddy. the hits keep a coming. this is a live picture of the obamacare website. this might shock you that it's down, again. that's not the only problem. apparently people's applications are disappearing and they don't know anything about it. we'll explain everything. and now the white house, the brunt of late night jokes. watch this. >> we have had our best people working on it. and those who claim we're moving in the wrong direction, well, rest your conscience. >> pretty good. guess who's not laughing? we'll tell you coming up. then, is your home a target

problematic obamacare website which is down again. >> been down all morning. >> thousands of applications have been filed during early enrollment but that have apparently disappeared. peter doocy is live in washington with the latest. peter, any clue where these are? >> somewhere lost in cyber space, tucker. at one point in mid october 15% of everyone who thought they had already signed up for coverage at healthcare.gov didn't because of a technical error at the back end of the website that basically allowed 15,000 or so consumers to complete the entire application process but then those applications just never made it to the insurance company. so now hhs is saying this, quote, to make sure that no consumer falls through the cracks because of earlier pervasive troubles with the site, we are contacting e consumer who has selected a plan through the federal marketplace to remind them to pay their premium and connect with their insurer. so if you've applied for
5:03 am
coverage, then you should expect a call from hhs sometime soon because the deadline to get covered by january 1st is a week from tomorrow. so crunch time right now. hhs says that they have mostly fixed the problems with these forms known as 834s and some data that they released yesterday shows that right now less than 1% of those 834s are stopping consumers from getting covered. this morning though, as you mentioned, healthcare.gov down for scheduled maintenance. >> thank you, peter. absolutely unbelievable. if you were up late last night, you may have noticed that "saturday night live" for the first time in a long time took off after president obama mocking his performance at the nelson mandela funeral in south africa. watch. >> i experienced a series of unfortunate events. i mean, first, i got roped into taking a selfie with a blond female danish prime minister. some people said michelle was angry at me for that, but i

people, i can understand it, but they had a lost year. this was a president who got elected with a healthy majority in the electoral college. his big initiatives as the year began, immigration reform, gun control, none of that has gone anywhere. i guess immigration reform passed in the senate but it's going nowhere in the house. then of course the debacle over obamacare. you know, i suppose it will help. john podesta, i have a lot of regard for. he's a smart guy. i think they do better to get jeff bezos to make sure obamacare works. >> good point. >> more so than somebody who's an advisor in the oval office. >> the face of obamacare is kathleen sebelius. the other day answering questions about keeping your plan, not keeping your plan and couldn't answer this question. it seems sort of befuddled. here's the face of obamacare. watch this and we'll get you to respond. >> i think that the statement
5:17 am
about keeping your plan was one that is applicable to the vast majority of americans in the health care market. what we know is that we also designed the implementation of the affordable care act to make sure that plans that were in place in march of 2010 that kept the same benefits in place didn't shift costs to consumers. >> kind of painful. >> i was going to say, i don't know if that's painful to watch or funny, but it's certainly not good. did she not get the memo that the president has already apologized for that remark. i mean, it's just really simple. you just say, the president has apologized. we're trying to do better. we're trying to help those people, period. >> when you talk about bringing in podesta and shifting things around, it leads to the main question. how does sebelius continue to

have her job? there are a lot of people who say it's about time that somebody push her aside or she step aside. in all your years of covering washington, how has this not happened yet? >> well, that's a good question. a lot of people are asking it. in fact, we've probably asked it at the show on the top of the hour. i think there may be a calculated decision. i'm not saying it's right or wrong that firing her is only going to increase the calls for more people to be fired and that in the middle of this thing while you're trying to fix it, don't make those kinds of changes, but it is curious that nobody has paid a price for what -- everybody in the white house and certainly everybody in the rest of the country says has been a total mess. >> so, chris, there's so much drama going on in washington. what topics are you going to be hitting today on the show? >> first of all, another one of those horrendous scenes of kids with their arms raised leaving the school after one of their

. . . . . . . . . . . welcome back. christmas without christ, without religion at all? a nonprofit american atheist group is heating up the war on christmas with a new billboard in times square that says, quote, nobody needs christ. >> the president of the group tried to explain their point on "hannity." >> christmas isn't christmas without the religion. >> christmas is christmas without religion. >> no, it's not. >> folks -- >> going to church is not fun. nobody likes it. nobody enjoys it. >> wait a minute. i like. >> go. if you enjoy it, you go. >> what i'm saying -- i like
5:46 am
going to church. i get a lot out of it. there's somebody greater than me. >> shawn, the point that we're trying to make is there are a whole lot of people out there for whom religion is the worst part of it. they go to church. father john is here. they don't like church. it's the worst part of christmas. we don't need christ in christmas. what was your response? >> nothing to do with christ obviously. i don't think that deserves a whole lot of response except for the fact that this guy, i've met him, when he does this, that's the most atheist. the wonderful, smart atheists who i know who are very happy for me that have faith, they look at it and they say, gosh, why do you make a statement like that? not fun. not good. >> the whole point is this, to spur a conversation presumably spur the fundraising.
5:47 am
it seems like a lot of people, not what canny atheists, but for the others christmas is a commercial operation. >> it is. we can sit back and go, oh, isn't that terrible. there are long lines. everybody is doing this. i think that's wonderful that people are responding to a holiday, going out and shopping and all of that. that's good. we have to make sure that in our families we establish tradition so that our children understand what this is all about. that happens in the family. it doesn't happen at macy's. it's okay that macy's does what macy's does. >> there was a poll taken recently, is christmas about jesus or santa. here are the results. 67% said jesus christ. only 17% said santa claus. what's your reaction to that? >> historically we know what christmas is. it's a celebration of the birth of jesus. >> some people don't get it. you do get so wrapped up with christmas. >> it's easy to.
5:48 am
it's also very simple to establish very simple traditions. in my family, when we run down to get christmas present, my dad would have us kneel down and say a prayer. that's all it takes is establishing very simple traditions. i should also say that in times square right next to this big advertisement against christ being christmas a christian group set up another advertisement that said to our atheist friends, thank god you're wrong. that's not the way either. that's not the way. and the way is respecting other people for who they are, for what they believe and then having reasons for your own belief and being able to share them in a time and a good way. >> tens of thousands of dollars to put up a billboard like that in times square. >> that's right. >> could be better used for something else. father john, great to see you. >> merry christmas. coming up on show, parents

5:54 am
counselor and asked him for the cds back. and he said he didn't have any, so i put my hand in his pocket and pulled them out. you know? and then he tried to leave the store. i stopped him from leaving the store. and i went to check him again to see if he had anything else and that's when he pulled the knife out. >> so how would you compare this? you're a cage fighter. how would you compare this to other fete people you fought? >> well, most of on them don't have a knife, so yeah, it's a lot different. >> were you scared? were you worried at all? you seemed like you were pretty much in control there. >> yeah, i was. i just disht was all on instinct, you know. i was more scared at the end of the day after everything that happened, just thinking about what could have happened is what freaked me out more than anything. you know, it's pretty scary. >> big headline here is that you had -- your daughter was behind the counter, as well. she was playing, right? >> yeah.
5:55 am
well, my 12-year-old daughter was -- she was only a couple of feet away from when we actually got the knife off the guy and she was right there and seen the whole thing. so, yeah, it was -- yeah, the knife, my friend, joe, pried the knife out of the guy's hand while i was holding him. but he was a foot or two away from my daughter, yeah. >> good for you. you did -- obviously, you did the right thing and the heroic thing. how did the police respond when they came? >> they just put him in handcuffs and -- it wasn't much of a big deal. actually, i had customers in the store and i kept the store opened, so i was holding this guy for the police and still trying to do record sales at the same time. >> you're still ringing people up while you have this guy -- hold on, i've got this guy. you are truly a capitalist. welcome to america. we welcome you. >> how do you feel with all this attention you're getting, all this media attention? >> it's been crazy. the last week has been

idiot to work, just play the lotto. >> you don't like the lotto? >> i really, really don't. some areas got up to a foot of snow. today, about 1300 flights have been delayed already, another 1300 flat out canceled. the snow is causing traffic nightmares for people hoping to do last minute christmas shopping. >> don't blame the weather, girl, okay? we have seen a lot of snow across the northeast over the last several weeks. this one, a quick mover moving into new england. some areas could get over a foot of snow. but it's -- for the most part, it's done with. we are going to see the temperatures, however, get cold. so any of the roadways that are wet, it's going to freeze over. so be really careful if you're driving. you could see some black ice and that is not fun to travel on. we have another system, a quick mover that could bring us snow on tuesday. keep that in mind. now, temperatures, you've been really cold across the northern plains and the upper midwest. they're going to moderate monday into tuesday, as you can see.
6:05 am
so fargo instead of subzero temperatures, it will she 20 on tuesday. but then, wednesday, again, we start to see a nose dive into the cooler temperatures yet again. so a lot of winter to go to -- or a lot of winter to get through. we should get you through the cold temperatures, as well. back to you, juliet. tucker, clayton. >> thank you. if you pick up "the washington post" this morning, you will read a bombshell story about what unfolded pass 2012 election was unfolding. a lot of regulations that the obama administration was going to put in place was held back so as not to be contentions of rivalry. bodies of water that deserve federal protection was withheld, pollution controls, all withheld because of political reasons. >> these people are supposed to meet with offices of various government agencies, go through
6:06 am
them with these things that are supposed to be enacted. the media picks up on it and it's covered and people talk about it. but these things were so controversial that apparently the white house felt like let's keep it out of the public eye for now, hold off on it so we can be elected and -- >> well, because they knew if the fun knew what they actually stood for, they would lose the election, just like the president knew if the public understood they would lose their health insurance, they wouldn't have re-elected him. the amazing part of this story is that this was obvious, i think, to people paying close attention. they've always denied it. they lied about it and they just got caught. seven people confirmed to the washington post, people who worked for the obama administration, yeah, we did this. this is not, by the way, business in usual in d.c. you don't normally have the white house controlling the agencies down to this level. implement this policy, protect this body of water, don't protect that body of water until after the election. that doesn't normally happen. >> and you're right about this.
6:07 am
they repeatedly said the delays were after the election. so it will be fascinating to hear from the white house this week. seven people, former administration officials who went on the record for this piece. it will be interesting to see if they deny it again. so they're getting up there and saying we must do this for the good of the country, but not until after we get re-elected. if a piece of water is worth being protected now, it was worth being protected then. how cynical can you be? >> and the president said all oo long, you want to do what is politically tough. >> we're not going to feed you candy -- i don't mind being a one-term president if what i'm doing is politically right. >> but apparently if it is politically right it is controversial. let's go up to folks in washington state. some of you may be waking up this morning with a few less dollars in your bank account this morning. this is what happened. when you sign up for obama care, you pick the date in which you want it to start and you also
6:08 am
then pick the date in which you wanted the money debited from your account. many, many folks waking up there finding out that the money has been debited weeks in advance. >> right before christmas. >> right. paying bills, not an option for them right now. negative $800 in some peoples bank accounts this morning. weeks ahead of time. >> what you just said is so right, weeks before christmas. these are -- and for the most part, not rich people. if you wound up with $800 left in your checking account weeks before christmas, what about buying food and groceries and gas and presents. this is unbelievable. >> paying their billses. so not only is it bad that the $800 was removed and trying to get answers is the other part of this story, right? so they're being told to go to the website, the washington health plan finder website. when they go there, the website is down. then they're told to call the help line. they call the help line and no one picks up and they can't get help. what do they have to do? they have to go to the facebook page or the health care plan and
6:09 am
leave a post. >> but here is the scary thing. at least -- okay, positive spin even though it's really not. at least these people know that they're going -- that they're being debited and that there is some activity with their health care. ralt of you out there don't know that you don't have health care because the paperwork never got to the insurance carrier. >> so that's the way you find out. your account has been dabited when it shouldn't have been and then you can turn to your honey and say well, i guess we do have insurance coverage after all. >> a lot of people will find out when they have some cause to go to the doctor. they're going to find out they thought they were insured and they're not. >> and you think you could get on the phone and call and find out but you can't get any answers. >> just go on facebook. did you catch "saturday night live" last night? really taking on the oh bam in administration. it's not something they've done too much lately, but really, they hit them over the mandela
6:10 am
memorial service and obama care. take a listen to what they did last night. watch. i experienced a series of unfortunate events. i mean, first, i got roped into taking a selfie with a blond female danish prime minister. some people said michelle was angry at me for that, but i talked to her afterwards, and i can assure you, she was furious. then i got caught shaking hands with ra outlioul castro. in my defense, he told me he was edward james v aye mos. secondly, there was a sign language interpreter who clearly will no idea what he was doing. but those were merely a distraction. .some folks are bound to be frustrated. but many more are excited. and while i can't say that i've been entirely thrilled with the
6:11 am
results, -- that was the thriller dance, by the way. that's so good. >> it's so nice to see "saturday night live" back. yeah. because they were bad for a long time. >> they were bad and i think a lot of the writers over there were most notably in love with obama. and it's hard to be funny when you become less partisan. more coming up here on the show. nancy pelosi charging republicans with less respect for women. but ann coulter is here and says no way. >> there she is. and it's one of the coolest stories you're going to hear. a grizzlies basketball player giving a special needs fan the shirt right off his back. and even a little more of a happy story. we'll tell you about it when we come back.
6:12 am

well, the obama administration continues to flounder through its second term. we'll talk about possible 2016 republican contenders. who is leading and who may have some catching up to do. >> here so weigh in on that is the author of a new book, "neve" it's a great book. chris christie said the other day the gop doesn't have a party problem, it has a candidate problem. do you agree with that? >> well, i might include him in that. when i saw the list of the
6:16 am
candidates that are being talked about, i thought, this is -- this is why next year is so important. republicans may have to rule from congress, which we can do, get a veto approved majority in the senate, hold the house and the presidency doesn't really matter. i think we have some good candidates, all the ones from the list going around now. we're not good on amnesty, which is the most important issue, in addition to repealing obama care, but we're not going to repeal abeau bottom ma care without having amnesty. >> so this is iowa favorbility, paul ryan comes in at 73% followed by mike huckabee who said yesterday that he wasn't ready to make any skort of announcements. sanatorium comes in at 58%, perry at 55%, jeb bush at 511%. are you surprised? >> not really. this far out, the candidates being talked about are never even in the top ten at the end. i did a column on this once and
6:17 am
i looked up whom everyone was talking about 18 months before the election. and i think before 2000, the number one leading candidate was lydia dole. >> why does that happen? >> it's just name recognition. >> and remember, don't call her liddy. >> oh, really? >> yeah. i'm just kidding. tell us about the coulter primary so far. >> i think we have some good candidates. they're not as well known. obviously, i like ted cruz. ran johnson. >> you were a huge christie point at one point. >> i know, but he came out for amnesty. i've never seen an issue where the americans are on one side and washington was on the other side. you need to meet americans and find out what they're thinking. maybe reagan isn't a good example since he actually enacted amnesty.
6:18 am
>> let's talk about nancy pelosi. >> excellent. >> she says republicans have disrespect for women. >> she said this on the network where one of their hosts just said that someone should defecate in sarah palin's mouth. let's clarify where she made the comment about republicans disrespecting women. >> here is that in her own mouth. >> one word, disrespect. disrespect for the roles that women have in terms of exercising their judgment about their responsibility, disrespect for women in the workplace by not passing equal pay for equal work pay equity, without raising minimum wage. 62% of the people who make the minimum wage are women, without valuing the time of women with sick paid leave. >> why doesn't she just say abortion? that's what she's talking about. why doesn't anybody use that word out loud? >> isn't that curious? the series of euphemisms.
6:19 am
what that relates to is a series of euphemisms for liberal. it's health, it's choice, it's anything but abortion. that shows a lot of respect for women since half of the babies being aborted would have become women. >> and she's addressing database i've herds her comment about this which is what the gop are doing to outreach for women and having seminars and trying to engage with women better than they did during the last election time and she has addressed that. is that what she's addressing here, the gop's problem with women? >> i am curious how that leaked. it does sound dorky on the part of republicans. they're going to have seminars on how to talk with women? >> but isn't it a perfect for public solution problem, the seminar. >> it's sweet but dorky. >> and republicans don't have a problem with women.
6:20 am
they have a problem with unmarried women who think, no, we don't need national defense, we need our birth control paid for and why? because single women look to the government as their husbands. please provide for me. please -- >> you're not in that category? >> some of us are aggressive right wingers. >> ann coulter, thank you very much. coming up, this is a scene from 21 jump street. >> we're reviving an undercover police program from the 1980s. one of these programs involves the use of young, immature seeming audiences. i think i you idiots are perfect. >> this undercover scene is no hollywood movie. we'll tell you about it. and then worries that you're overusing baby gear gadgets like this one. coming up, we have the best ways to play that are better for your baby, no batteries required. hi. i'm henry winkler.

6:25 am
>> i'm not very kraep crazy about it. i think for babies under 2, we need to give screen time a time-out. their brains are developing and they need to be moving and interacting with us, adults. >> as we know from research, babies learn by seeing the whites of on our eyes and they learn to identify objects by having a conversation about those objects, not staring blindly at a screen like zombies. so instead of doing that, you brought us some solutions in our studios this morning and some cute babies. >> i have. >> good morning. >> so we're going to do some tummy time. it can be on mom's chest as opposed to flat on the floor. as she leans back, she's having to use his head support. and you can him doing that right now. >> that's baby evan. how old is evan? >> nine weeks. >> so do you use a lot of screen time or are you spending more time interacting with the newborn? >> my feeling also is back to basics and we're very -- we feel
6:26 am
that we're the education for our children, so we believe in that, too. >> and how much time do you want to spent doing this tummy time like that? >> a couple of minutes, three or four times a day. >> looks like me this morning. about a minute and i'm exhausted. let's slide on down here. who do we have here? >> harper. >> hi, harper. i see you just dug out a muffin pan out of the item. >> this is household items, regular things that we have around the house. this works on grasp and release skills. she's pick them up. that's good for development. >> so just grab some puffs or cotton balls. >> you don't have to spend a lot of money. i was always stunned by my kids. they would play with a wooden spoon. i'm like, why do we buy them that other toy? >> exactly. or the box that the toy came in. >> it's crazy. but when they're spending time
6:27 am
looking at a screen, they're might tell missing out on opportunities for language development. in fact, studies have shown that babies that watch an hour of screen time learn six to eight fewer vocabulary words per hour. >> so harper is 13-months old. moving over, this is ben. >> this is ben and he is stacking blocks. these are milk cartons covered in duct tape. >> so you took these from home. >> brought these from home. >> and covered them with tape. you call this the shop till you drop. >> so you can walk around with the basket, pick them up, put them in. >> ben, do you like this basket? do you like this? yeah. look at that. look at that. you see how easy it is to make him happy. >> how long can he sit and do this? >> this is pretty long. i'm pretty impressed, actually. this is great. >> put them in front of the television camera.
6:28 am
bottom line, you don't need to spend all this money buying these gadgets. >> right. and the book has over 100 activities like this. >> and the name of the book again? >> retrobaby. >> i think this is something we could all use right now. i think we're getting so far down a rabbit hole with technology, it's good to come back to reality a bit. >> nice to see you. >> the book is retrobaby. coming up here on the show, ever wonder why kids can sleep the whole day away while you're up at the crack of dawn? 2 scientific explanation is next while babies cry. that will keep you up. and a grizzlies basketball player giving a special needs fan the shirt off his back. that player and the little boy, next.

it's your shout of the morning, one family taking their holiday greetings to a whole new videotaped level. in a christmas newsletter called christmas jammies. there was more to it than just a christmas greeting, though. >> happens next, next month he's
6:33 am
stepping off the anchor desk. ♪ it's the biggest decision of his life he's going to quit his job and come work with his life ♪ >> dad is stepping down from hi anchor job to work with his wife on their video production company. this apparently one of their first products. smart move. smart marketing. >> yeah, exactly. they'll get lots of attention for this. prets funny. >> great. thanks to joining us again. back in august of 2011, a chinook helicopter was shot down in afghanistan killing all 38 s.e.a.l.s on board. now families of the s.e.a.l.s may get answers to what happened. but why was it so difficult? here is what one of the parents told us earlier. >> you're talking about dealing with the possible missteps of very high ranking military leaders in the strategy of this war and the administration. it' very touchy subject.
6:34 am
and i think a lot of people really have tried very, very much tried to stop the discussion on this issue. >> the house oversight committee announcing it would hold a hearing regarding the disaster crash early next year. a new york man is very lucky to be alive. he fell on the subway track as the train was coming barreling towards him. watch. >> he's alive. >> don't move. >> the person is alive. i need power off on two tracks. >> and it's chaotic there. but basically what this is showing is that this first responder is talking to the man as he lay under the train. miraculously, the victim, who is in his 50s, suffered only a bruised hand. he told cops he jumped on to a track to save a woman who fell, but witnesses say there is no woman there. he is now being hospitalized for
6:35 am
psychological evaluations. and undercover cops posing at 11th graders make a major drug bust just like a scene from "21 is jump street." >> we're revamping it from modern times. one of these programs involves the use of young, immature seeming officers. i think you idiots are perfect. >> but this is not a funny hollywood film. cops arrested 22 students at two california high schools, including 18-year-old serena ma mere easy and 19-year-old eric de la cruz. seizures included pot, cocaine and meth, a result of a semester-long undercover sting. i never wondered why teens could sleep so much more than adults? according to a new study, the older we get, the less fatigued we are. huh? really? researchers say older people may be opting out of more exhausting activity. ah-ha. yes, and those are the headlines.
6:36 am
let's get out out to janet. she is outside with the forecast today. >> hello. i think the storm scared a lot of folks away, except you guys. why are you from? >> christine and fernando. why are you from? >> new york city woodside. >> and where are you from? >> maryland. >> what is your name? >> lisa bilbro. it's not that bad out here, right? let's take a look at the satellite imagery. actually, the bulk of the snow has exited, although new england is getting some snow. in some cases, they could see upwards of a foot. take a look at that. some areas could get 18 inches, 24 inches. then you have the lake-effect snow bands where they could get 6 to 12 inches from this system. so winter weather advisories in effect for new england. up towards maine they have a winter storm warning in effect. 23 in cleveland. it's 31 in new york. still cold in dallas, 28 there. with the windchill, what it feels like, zero in chicago
6:37 am
minus 17 in minneapolis. you guys having a good time? >> yeah. >> all right. back inside, juliet, back to you. >> thank you very much, the weather machine, janice dean. talk about giving somebody the shirt off your back. grizzly's player, zach randall, noticed a young fan with special needs trying to get his attention. when the little boy pulled at his warm-up jersey, randolph immediately took it off and handed it over. joining us now is tebo with his nn number one fan, will and his dad, morgan. great you have to here today. >> good morning. >> that's will there. so, zebo, we're going to start with you first of all. so you're getting ready, you have lots going on, wearing your practice jersey. lots of fans screaming at you. but you noticed will. what happened? >> i had just came out of the game. and i was sitting on the bench. i think the fourth quarter was just starting. and i had -- i was sitting on
6:38 am
the end and looking to the left. i heard will was hollering my name. he was hollering, z-bo, z-bo. so i turned and looked at him. he was trying to run to the bench. but i think that was his mother and she was like, no, you can't go over there. i think he broke away from her and then the security stopped him. so i had got up and shook his hand and he was like, z-bo, he asked can i have my shirt. and i was like, yeah, you can have my shirt. it happened so fast, you know, that, you know, i didn't know no cameras was on me. so when i got home, my fiancee told me, you know, they had you on camera giving that little man your shirt. and i was like, oh, wow, because i was surprised the camera got it because it was during the course of the game. >> this is something that is familiar to you. you grew up, it was rough for you. you have a compassion there. tell us about your childhood and why he affected you so much. >> just, you know, i come from, you know, situations like that,
6:39 am
not having a lot, single parent home, a mother on welfare. so i've been blessed. and it's a blessing for me. it's a blessing for me to have a friend and a fan like will. so, you know, i just wanted to give him my shirt. it was nothing. i'm going to give him a jersey next game. >> morgan, i see you're almost as excited as will is there. tell us about what this meant to will. >> i will for -- big basketball fan, especially the grizzlies. and z-bo is probably his favorite player. he likes a lot of the grizzlies. he knows most of their numbers and names. but he's been putting balls into hoops since he was 4 or 5. he's actually really good for a little kid. i'd be surprised if i get him near a hoop what he can do. but it was real special for him. he just got a kick out of it. he had the shirt on afterwards, was dancing in the hallway and
6:40 am
having a whole lot of fun with it. >> you know, we see -- we hear so many stories, sometimes the negative things that these athletes do get so much more attention than the positive things. when something like this happens, what does it mean? z-bo is clearly a role model. but what does it mean to your son? >> well, it's something to look up to and a lot of times there's negative light on them and this really was a special moment. you know, nothing scripted. it just happened real quick. and like z-bo said, his fiancee said, hey, you were on tv. they recorded the thing. so it was really neat. and will, like i said, was just ecstatic. he had that shirt on. had to pry it off of him later in the evening. but it was funny. look at the camera, buddy. >> i'm not even listening to you. no offense, morgan. i was to hear will and z-bo. >> he's a handful. >> he's so excited, clearly. z-bo, final word on this. you're sitting next to your
6:41 am
biggest fan. do you have anything to say to him? >> well, you know, i just want you to know, will, you know, you're my number one fan for life and i got some -- >> for life. >> for life. give me some. and i've got in tickets. i'm going to give you and your school some tickets so you can come to the game. you can bring your whole school to the game. >> that's awesome. z-bo, will, morgan, thanks, guys, for joining us. we appreciate it. have a great time at that game. take some pictures for us and send them to us, if you would. >> we will. >> thanks been guys. coming up, media bias alert. i hate to talk about the negative stuff after something like that, but the mainstream media is quick to criticize the gop for inciting. but why do they act like democrats never fight at all, either. howard kurtz are going to talk about that. and he's sold over on $11 million albums. now steven curtis chapman is here to perform his latest single live. stay with us.

6:46 am
the fox news channel and it airs again in the afternoon on the fox news channel. hourdz is here now. got a lot snow in his satellite transmission. sometimes. here is howard. nice to see you this morning, howard. can howard hear me? we're going to come right back because we still have some snow stuck in the satellite transmission. i didn't even know you could get snow up in space, but apparently we did. we'll be right back and talk to howard after the break. in the nation, sometimes bad things happen.

6:50 am
issues. it's live television, it happens. >> it's live television. >> what do you make of the media's response to john boehner and the republican infighting this week? >> well, the mainstream media o happening in the world. >> the mainstream loved the civil war narrative. john boehner gave them a big opening. two days in a row, he ripped those groups and it is a legitimate story because it does speak to a split in the gop that thinks we better compromise, and those who feel like they need to be more aggressive in cutting spending, even to the brink of perhaps forcing another government shutdown. >> we have covered that angle of the story with representative ryan as well as speaker boehner. but do you think that's fair?
6:51 am
meaning the tone about obama care behind closed doors, concern about running in 2014, democrats, i don't know if i have heard as much of that. >> think the media could have made more when the obama care debacle was at its peak of the democrats criticizing the rollout, distancing themselves, calling for change in the law. that was a story, too. the reason i don't think it was on par with the republican infighting is that the rhetoric wasn't as heated. you didn't have democrats denouncing president obama. that tends to happen. party members fall into line when their party controls the white house. the language that boehner used and some groups used in response to the speaker was much tougher. we love a good brawl. it's a lot more fun to cover than parsing the details of how much the budget is reducing bood the agreement. >> you have a fascinating show
6:52 am
today at 11:00. who's on the show. >> live coverage from south africa of the mandela funeral, and jana winter, the fox news correspondent who has just avoided jail for refusing to testify in the aurora mass shooting. >> fascinating. check it out at 11:00 a.m. eastern time. coming up here on the show, he's sold over 11 million albums now. steven curtis chapman here to perform his single live on the other side of the break. don't go anywhere.
