3:06 am
where he admitted one reporter asked is his biggest mistake over the past year. >> the fact is it didn't happen in the first month. first six weeks in a way that was at all acceptable. since i'm in charge, obviously, we screwed it up. >> well, the president made big promises in 2014, including improvements to his sweeping healthcare law. the site continues to show major weaknesses. overnight it was freezing for issues. folks only have two more days to sign up before monday's deadline. that being said, the about the did defend his record saying millions of americans will have better insurance than ever before. he went on to say 2014 will be a, year, quote year of action. job creation, as well as expanded background checks for gun purchases. the president also says he will be reviewing the nsa surveillance program over the holiday break and will make a, quote: pretty definitive statement next, next month about possible
3:07 am
reform to the program. we have to wait and see. tucker, anna, mike, back to you guys. >> thanks a lot, elizabeth. >> well, the "duck dynasty" story continues to unfold. here is the latest. it turns out that a&e, the network that airs the show which i think is the biggest unscripted show in the history of television knew long ahead of time that phil robertson was a sincere christian and held these views. the show premiered in 2012. they had warned phil not to speak out about his views. so it's not like this was a surprise to a&e. >> apparently there was some youtube video of him standing in front of a congregation basically saying some very strong views, similar to what we heard published in the gq article about gays and condemnation and he got a standing ovation for it. it was on youtube which we all know. i mean, you you can see youtube, apparently they did warn him ahead of time. we are also warning this morning that a&e felt that they could not let him continue to be on the show. of course, this is just a
3:08 am
hiatus that has not been said how long it could be. they couldn't let him to be on the show because he was disrespecting gays by those comments that he made. gays that work for a&e. they didn't want to disrespect their own employees. >> his comments when he gave them to gq. first of all he is doing an interview with gq. magazine grooming, full beard and all of that. that was unusual. it can't be a shock to a&e that he may have mentioned this. they knew those were his views. >> a lot of times in these times of entertainment contracts there are moral clauses in there where you can't say something to shame the network and embarrass them. he had been warned by them to make these comments and then he made them. you can also see where they are coming from. >> if they are that outraged, maybe they could take the show off the air. i think they have another season in the can already. >> biggest show on cable. they are in this for the money, of course. they are going to do whatever makes them the most money. they have the right to fire any of their employees as
3:09 am
far as i'm concerned for any reason. they are the employer. on the other hand, you have to wonder about the people who have demanded his firing. you know, these gay groups are for being gay. they think that's right. phil robertson is against being gay. okay. why can't they live in the same country? why is it people that people who have a different view need to be crushed. >> always the same case, fire, fire, fire people. just don't watch it just don't watch it. >> apparently glaad receiving major backlash for. this all the time i have worked at glaad, we have never received the kind of phone calls and emails we are receiving now. people are upset with them. >> comments they are getting are comments about people who believe the same thing phil robertson believes against the condemnation for gays for living their lifestyle and also people who are upset about limiting his freedom of speech. you know, he has the freedom of speech to say these things, a&e also has their freedom, you know, let the marketplace determine.
3:10 am
>> yeah. >> determine to let him go if they choose to do that. >> if a&e feels like is he hurting their brand, then let him go. but apparently they don't think the brand enough to take the show off the air. >> because they have no principles. >> well, also, the show is more popular now during this controversy than ever before. >> see their facebook page, 1.6 million likes. wal-mart is selling out of "duck dynasty" stuff. >> i think there are important philosophical questions though at the heart of this. harvey levin who runs tmz who is gay had this to say about the controversy. pretty interesting. take a listen. this country was founded on freedom of religion. i mean, that's one of the reaps we broke from england. and it just seems to me that you have to tolerate things, even things that are abhorrent as long as they are not hurting other people. the irony here is you have got groups like glaad saying we are pushing tolerance you have to accept us just
3:11 am
because we are different doesn't mean that you shouldn't embrace well, can you make the same argument about this guy. and if you are going to accept tolerance on one side, you have got to accept it on the other. it just seems to me as long as he is not hurting me or other people and is he not propagating, you know, doing bad things to people, i don't see how you can punish him for how he feels. especially when you knew how he felt going in. >> that seems a totally fair point. i thought it was all about tolerance, respecting people, at least leaving others alone even if they have views that you think are weird or even repugnant. everybody is entitled to a view. and you shouldn't live in a country where you are not allowed to express your sincere view. especially one rooted in religious faith? come on. >> it should be tolerance respected on both sides. >> the only thing i was hoping out of the controversy was all reality shows would be cancelled. no, we are still going to have the kardashians and "duck dynasty."
3:12 am
[cheers] >> kardashians is the grossest thing i have ever seen in my life. >> did you want them fired to be gross. >> of course not. it grieves me that people watch that voluntarily. >> as far as the "duck dynasty" family goes they said they can't imagine doing the show without their head patriarch. they may end up walking. you can't imagine it wouldn't take very long for somebody else to pick them up they don't need the money. they made for carving out a piece of wood so it would. [duck call] >> they made millions of dollars off of that. >> they work though. i have used their duck calls. they work. the ducks come in. glaad may be offended by the robertsons, but they love them. >> love them. >> it is totally true. catch and release. >> pet them. >> it's painful. >> what do you think? get on our facebook page and should the robertsons even
3:13 am
consider carrying on with the show without phil. >> yeah, let us know. hit us up facebook and twitter. hit us up foxnews.com. >> they fought for our freedom but now they are fighting to keep their jobs. two veterans say they have been suspended from the police department for serving their country. hear from them straight ahead. >> the president says the growing gap between rich and poor is the defining challenge of our time, are solutions actually making the american dream harder to achieve? is that gap growing under obama? that conversation coming up. i take prilosec otc each morning for my frequent heartburn.

3:17 am
>> we have more income inequality now than any time since the 1920s, because all the profits went to the top 1%. >> increased inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the american dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe. >> but what the president left out there of that recent speech, is that income inequality has grown faster on his watch than any time in the past two decades. look at this. under president clinton the top 1% took home 45% income gain from expanding comea back in the 1990s, under president bush it climbed to 65%. under president obama the irish took home 121%. is the american dream really in danger and, if so, from whom? lee speakerman is ceo of speakerman, thank you for being with us. >> great to be with you, mike. >> i i want the income gap
3:18 am
to shrink as well. what is this current president doing to make it widen? >> well, you know, where the income gap is most pronounced is washington, d.c. where incomes are dramatically higher than the nation as a whole. housing prices have been booming while the rest of america was struggling. why is that? because this administration, the obama administration has been about stimulating government. and washington is where all the politicians and bureaucrats and lobbyists live. meanwhile, the rest of america has had a very tough time as you pointed out. but this is just changing the subject as you said at the top of the segment, away from the failings of obamacare. this is the president, i think, who is afraid of becoming the myspace of 2014. he just may not be cool anymore. talking to his base and that's unfortunate because his policies have not only been bad for america as a whole but they have been particularly bad for his base, for those voters that
3:19 am
have been most loyal to him, for instance, latinos have done terribly. 36% youth unemployment among african-americans. literally nothing you can can point to that this president has done for his core and most loyal supporters, never mind the rest of the country. so when we talk about income inequality, it's very pronounced there. >> let's talk about that gap between the rich and the poor, you have to do this pretty quickly here. you have got about 30 seconds. is there any way the government can help enthat shrink, the gap? >> first of all whether you have massive federal deficits that the federal reserve is using a trillion dollars a year of money out of thin air to help finance, that is very bad because that drives down interest rates and makes the stock market the only alternative for getting any return, so all of the rich people with stocks do incredibly well under that scenario. they have done very well with president obama. what you have got to do is encourage companies to hire more people, that means not scaring them from hiring. it's a big risk to hire
3:20 am
people whether you have a healthcare program that adds costs and a lot of uncertainty. whether you have a massive debt. we need a balanced budget amendment to create certainty. no law passed by congress is going to restrain spending. any future congress can break those caps and that's always happened. if we have a balanced budget amendment we will create certainty around the world, to world financial markets. businesses will know they won't be looking at further taxes and debasement of the dollar. that creates stability and predictability and the confidence that you have to have to invest and take the risk hiring people. >> you are making way too much sense. >> don't demonize wal-mart and people that hire. encourage them. tell them they are doing something good. >> appreciate you being here on this saturday morning. >> you are welcome. >> next up on the rundown here. there is no such thing as a free lunch with one congressman. he set off a firestorm saying kids should sweep the floor of the school before they get their free lunch. he joins us next. that should be interesting. truck is still missing.
3:21 am
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. but we'd really like our truck back, so if you see it, let us know, would you? thanks. what?

3:26 am
day life and your job. and i believe kids of all social, economic levels could benefit from having chores inside the house, outside the house, there are actually many schools already that do have some community service requirements in order to graduate. it effects all the kids. it builds better citizens. and it creates the work ethic for the next generation. and it's a sad thing that in america you can't even talk about things like this anymore without this kind of, you know, i gotcha, okay. we have got a tracker after you, we will put this on the news and make political hay out of it this was a public meeting on a saturday morning. not a statement of policy. it wasn't even a speech. it was a discussion. >> so the huffington post and other left leaning bloggers all of them are rich, want to send you the way of phil robertson. they basically concede we have a problem with the work ethic in america because they are espousing immigration reform because there are jobs americans won't do. is there a problem with
3:27 am
americans work ethic? how blunt do you want to be about that? is there? >> tucker, i think that there is. i think that kids from affluent families as well as kids from less affluent families can learn from some of the basics. again, when i ask the question, how many of you when you were 14 or 15 years old had a job in which you learned something that you still apply, if you ask that question to people who are 40 years old or so, nearly 100% of the hands go up. because people say oh, yes. i'm a father of four. i had my kids cleaning the garage, cleaning their rooms, helping do the dishes, and i think they are better young adults because of it. so, to me, we need to be talking about how do we instill the work ethic in the next generation? and i think that conversation is one that's desperately needed in america. >> certainly we don't want to breed an entitlement nation. kids learn a lot of things, even when they are at camp and it doesn't matter how are, if you are behaving, misbehaving if you make this much money or that much
3:28 am
money. wherever you come from. everybody has to sweep the cabin and wash the dishes and everything. i want to press you oon that. are you saying it's not just the low income families their kids who are getting the free lunches should have to do the duties, everybody should have to? >> everybody should have to. and there are schools all over the country that do require kids to do some community service. many schools the kids clean the lunchroom themselves. and it's a very positive thing. i would not ever want to single out less affluent children. this is good for everybody in all socioeconomic groups. >> congressman jack kingston of georgia. thanks a lot, congressman, we appreciate it? >> thank you tucker and anna. >> coming up on "fox & friends." facing the firing squad, president obama taking heat from the press before taking his trip to hawaii. hear his latest explanation for why obamacare doesn't need a delay. >> they fought for our freedom. now they are fighting to keep their jobs. two veterans who say they have been suspended for the police department for

3:31 am
because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat,

3:34 am
i was watching and he said that he personally spoke with two of president obama's top advisors and they are not so worried about just the approval ratings. it's the honesty and trustworthy ratings that are so far down. that's what they are concerned about. because that's been something that president obama has been able to hang his hat on. how you can trust the law and trust him if they change it every single second. >> here is a way to fix that start telling the truth. why does he care? he is never running for office again. they are dealing with the unfolding disaster that is obamacare to. tell the real truth about obamacare would be devastating because it's not working. the latest development you may have caught this is the white house is now giving exemptions, hardship exemptions they are calling them to people who lost their insurance because of obamacare. in other words, the hardship, is obamacare itself. not homelessness or illness or mental illness, no. obamacare itself. >> set up positive numbers too. a million people have signed up. then he did not mention the 6 million people who had the cancellations. so the math was way off

good morning, you might have noticed the p.c. police. phil robertson was let he go from the show for speaking his mind. bring in tammy bruce, a fox news contributor and radio talk show host. thank you for joining us this morning. >> my pleasure. thank you, tucker. >> where is the tolerance here? >> not on the left.
3:54 am
especially with the robertson situation, this actually has nothing to do with gay people it has to do the leftist ideology about silencing people who don't conform. and what is especially troubling for minority communities in this country, the civil rights movement, especially the gay civil rights movement was about asking for people, and demanding the right for us to be able to live our lives as we see fit without being punished for being different. and now look at what it is that is happening. it's ironic beings, also, tucker that one of the big major campaigns by the gay community is about ending bullying. if this is not a sign of the ultimate of bullying, i don't know what is. >> deep irony here. what bugs me maybe most of all is groups like glaad get to show up and say they represent gay people. i know a ton of people who aren't represented by glaad. how do does glaad get away with that? >> they really aren't. i will remind you, the backlash here is -- i will
3:55 am
remind everyone also about the chick-fil-a situation that occurred a little bit ago. the same situation. the ceo there express add religious personal opinion about gay marriage in that case and glaad and another couple of groups decided they were going to try to destroy him and chick-fil-a and everyone came out in support of chick-fil-a including gays. it didn't matter whether you were christian or not or where you came from, americans are responding, tucker, this is what i think is heartening. they are responding and rejecting this kind of totalitarianism. for those who sit on the boards of groups like glad glaad or the human rights campaign fund or things like that, they need to start speaking up as do the donors. i don't think anybody certainly in the gay community meant for us to become the monster that we were fighting against. and so we have all got to stand up and speak out against this. >> it's extremely political. glaad is attacking the duck guys and chick-fil-a,
3:56 am
islamists are killing gay people. i don't remember glaad spigotting the saudi embassy. why? >> yeah, you know, look, especially even with the new deal with iran. the last time we heard about gays in iran, ahmadinejad was denying gays existed in iran. in the meantime they were literally hanging them from cranes to kill them. and, you know, i think that the conversation in the gay community has been about this. you know, you have got -- your comment earlier that no they do not represent all days because this is about the left. anymore than it is about women, when it comes to feminism or even african-americans when it comes to certain individuals who say they represent them. so, the great thing though, too, is about social media is the ability for gays, conservative gays, gays who are libertarian or just gays who are genuinely liberal are able to speak against this and be heard. >> exactly. >> one last thing i'm concerned about is the mob mentality, tucker, that we're now seeing move

4:08 am
agreement and he does speak about it in public in that gq interview i guess we shouldn't be surprised that he is suspended then. >> right. probably not. >> you made this agreement, you you broke it. >> what's surprising to me is that groups that claim to be committed to tolerance are so profoundly intolerant of views they disagree with. why can't you have a country where some people are totally for being gay and others think it's wrong. i mean, they can coexist. >> he happens to not understand. >> crush people for disagreeing. >> he says he doesn't understand what homosexuality is all about. he just doesn't get it when he reads the bible is he a believer that it is a sin. that's his opinion. a&e didn't want him to ever say it outloud, but now he has so now he is suspended. >> the truth of the matter is we are all, as humans. we are scared of the unknown and scared of what we don't like or just what we don't understand. and so then we in turn don't like it very often. glaad, this gay advocacy group is saying that maybe this will be an opportunity for phil to sit down with gay families in louisiana
4:09 am
and understand that some of their values are actually shared and, you know, so maybe some sort of progress will be made from this whole thing but glaad is also saying they haven't seen backlash like this ever, you know that they can remember. the comments that are coming. in they are saying that people who believe exactly what phil believes and other comments they are saying it's not fair. >> who made glaad in charge of the views of gay people? i know plenty of gay people not represented by glaad. was there some sort of election? how do these groups arise out of nowhere and all of a sudden claim and the press reports they represent this or that group. they represent no one but themselves. disproportionate power. >> and tammy bruce who you just talked to her about that, listen to what she had to say. >> this actually has nothing to do with gay people. it has to do with the leftist ideology about silencing people who don't conform. and what is especially troubling for minority communities in this country, you know, the civil rights movement. especially the gay civil
4:10 am
rights movement was about asking for people and demanding the right for us to be able to live our lives as we see fit without being punished for being different. and now look at what it is that is happening. it's ironic also, tucker, that one of the big major campaigns by the gay community is about ending bullying. if this is not a sign of the ultimate of bullying, i don't know what is. >> and the other thing, this is supposed to be a reality show, right? and a phil was just acting real and being candid and now he is being punished for it we heard on thursday night from the family that they may not continue doing the show without their patriarch at the helm. our question of the day. should the robertsons continue on carrying on with the show? no phil, no snow. they already said that and they should leave a&e regardless if they bring phil back they have shown their true colors. >> i would like to hear glaad respond to what tammy bruce just said. tammy bruce, that was like the smartest summation of tolerance that i think i
4:11 am
have heard in an awfully long time. i would love to know he how they would respond to that. >> listen what david said: my prediction, a&e will re-think their position. viewership will be higher than ever and "duck dynasty" family make more money than ever before. we will see what happens. >> yeah, we will. and i think "duck dynasty" will win in the end. finally somebody who doesn't cower at the network hide his religious believes. thank god won't hide for a man who will not hide his religious beliefs for the almighty dollar. >> there are too many things in america you can't say. too many of us are worried about expressing what we really think because you can be punished for it do you want to live in a country like that? i don't. >> no. no i wish you would edit yourself every now and then though. >> signed entertainment contract in this clause he couldn't say these type of things which is typical in these things then a&e has a

4:17 am
to our active and retired military. and i think it reflects not only a lack of veterans in congress. but, if you look at the leadership in the house, both republican and democrat, the nine top people in the house, have a combined eight months of military service. the leaders much the budget committee that produced this document, no military service. >> that's a great point. you know what the percentage is in congress? >> it's about 20%. which is historic low. even though there are some iraq and afghanistan veterans in the congress now. very few were directly involved in this he process. and it shows there was no one to speak up and say this is wrong. this is cruel. the american people aren't going to accept this. >> we do need a budget. >> absolutely. this is really the perspective that the veterans community has come from. i work for the veterans of foreign wars. we represent 1.5 million veterans. we are part of a larger coalition that advocates on veterans benefits. we want to see a budget deal. but the problem is we can't advocate balancing the budget on the backs of our veterans especially military retirees who gave entire career of military service. >> speak to that, it's true we do need a budget. should the military, should the vets be off limits when
4:18 am
it comes to cuts? >> they sacrifice so much. spending time away from family. being willing to lay down their life in protection of our free press documents and liberties. putting on pause educational enhancement opportunities. any cut at all is significant. it's not some argue this is not a big cut it is a big cut because they sacrifice so much. >> why is it always the vets. >> no lobby for veteran. no prolific group of veterans that help get members of congress elected. military personnel and veterans are use offed to gritting their teeth and taking everything that comes at them. in this case that ask to their detriment. >> i think you might be right there is no lobby we do have organized veterans community. vfw and the american legion are out there. what we can bring is votes. what happened this week is the vfw grass roots membership. we generated tens of thousands of messages to

with that excitement comes some anxiety and important decision. what do do about your dogs? do you leave them or do you bring them with you? >> pet expert harrison forbes is here to let us know what we need to know before we hit the road good morning. >> good morning. >> you say 75% of the time the best thing to do is to leave the animal at the house. >> should he stay or should he go? that's the question. our egos as dog owners, he we want want to say oh, fido can't live 10 minutes without me. i'm going to take him with me. truth is most of the times dog does better in their own environment. they thrive on schedule and consistency. is if the only variable is you being gone, although it hurts our ego a little bit. usually the best thing to do to have a house sitter or somebody to come by and do pet walking. >> that makes sense. for that this is a g.p.s. tracker. the dog has one on right here. not only does this have a g.p.s. feature like if you did take your dog with you or got loose or ran away or hotel maid service accidently opened othe door. i will tell you something that personally happened to

some quick headlines for you. merry christmas you are fired. katie couric's staff didn't have a lot to celebrate at their holiday party this year. just a few hours before the party, katie broke the news that her syndicated show katie will not be back for a third season. katie will continue to tape new episodes until june to finish off the second season. and no cell phone signal, no problem. text your friends via vodka. scientists in canada sent a text message through the evaporated liquor proving it's possible to send data through the air using chemicals. according to researchers it's similar to how animals communicate. tucker?
4:46 am
>> thank you, mike. new report out will have you wondering which side of the law the department of homeland security is working for. a federal judge has accused the agency of hand delivering smuggled children to their illegal immigrant parents right here in the united states. some evidence it actually happens. joining us with more on this is michael cutler retired special agent with the u.s. immigration and naturalization service. mr. cutler, thanks a lot for joining us. >> thanks for covering this. >> well, it's a remarkable story. so as i understand it, the department of homeland security tasked with keeping us safe has knowingly and illegally delivered children to their legal immigrant parents in this country. >> that's absolutely correct. that's why i have called dhs the department of homeland surrender. this is so outrageous if you look at the law section 1324, harboring, shielding, transporting, aiding, abetting, inducing and encouraging are all felonies. aren't they doing all the above? >> well, but this also
4:47 am
encourages human smuggling, right? >> but it encourages human smuggling and encourages more illegal aliens to come here. we had a problem with junk driving what did we do? we lowered the acceptable blood alcohol levels and imposed severe sanctions against drunk drivers. here you are giving more inducements and incentives for people to run the border. let's remember we have immigration laws for two primary purposes to mecket measure lives and protect the jobs of american workers. how in the world does having immigration hand deliver illegal alien children to the illegal alien parent and not act against the illegal alien parent, how does that the not create more incentives for more people to come here in violation of our borders and laws? >> the white house has no incentive to reduce illegal immigration. because it benefits their donors, the finance people, obviously, and it also delivers potential new voters to them in the future. here is what u.s. district judge andrew hannahan said about. this the dhs policy is as logical as taking illegal
4:48 am
drugs or weapons it has seized from smugglers and delivering them to the criminals who initially solicited illegal importation and expoor station. legally this situation is no different. it's got to be legal what they are doing. how can they keep doing it? >> totally. why isn't anybody charged on the alien side with endangering the welfare of those kids? you put a kid in the car and don't put the safety belt on the kid, you are going to be arrested for endangering the child. handing over a child to the cartels, i don't know of a more pernicious bunch of thugs in the world next to the terrorists than the mexican drug cartels. so they know that the cartels are bringing these kids here. what could possibly go wrong, right? i mean, there is nothing about this story that makes sense, but it seems to follow the strategy of this administration of abro gating responsibility. look at the dream program. >> not just not enforcing the law working against the laws. >> look what they did with the dream act. 9/11 commission report encarnanze we do with
4:49 am
immigration should go back to that i provided denial to the 9/11 commission. how do you give illegal documents and they are doing that with the dreamers. that should be illegal as well. how do you do all these things that at a time we face greater thefts terrorism. they just had people over at the senate and house intelligence committees chair people saying we are at the greatest risk for terrorism now since before 9/11. meanwhile doing everything as a country to destroy border security and law enforcement that are pivotal in national security? >> we also have double digit real unemployment. >> bringing in more workers in the number of new jobs we are creating. >> unbelievable. mr. cutler thanks for joining me. >> merry christmas and happy new year. >> we all know the saying happy wife, happy life. this report says it's better to be right than happy. we will tell you what that means coming up. then, listen to, this cops can now search your home if they think you may intend at some point in the future to commit a crime. keeping people safe or is it

the future murder seems future his stick too avoid a crime might be closer to going a reality now. an appeals court in texas has ruled that search warrants can now be based on predicting a future crime. but does this help keep people safe or is it a violation of citizens rights? here for a fair and balanced debate is defense attorney
4:54 am
jonna spilbore and segal. good morning, thanks for being with us. this happened in parker county, texas. give me a breakdown of what happened. >> the police had a tip they had been watching a meth house for 30 days. they had a tip from an informant that they were fixing to cook meth inside. that's what the informant said. so they went into the house without a warrant. came out, detansd everybody. then asked for a warrant. got a warrant. went in. and the conviction resulted. and the defendant said because he went in without a warrant, you should have thrown out all the evidence and the court disagreed. and what you read was the dissent from that decision. >> right. and this is what a sitting judge has to say. only after unlawfully entering and finding suspicious activity that they felt the need to then secure the warrant and order to cover the tracks and collect the evidence without the taint of their entry. so is this just a way to get this evidence nitted even though it seems like there may have been police misconduct there. >> you know, i disagree with
4:55 am
the dissent here. they are being a little misleading. this wasn't really an action that was based on a prediction of a future crime because, when the police got into the location. there was a meth lab set up. there is a meth lab. that in and of itself is a crime. number one, number two, i don't know a whole lot about cooking meth. i do know that people can be blown up in the process. there is very big risk. if you have to make a choice. have you been investigating for 30 days. you are a cop. you have got make a choice. do we go in without a warrant or knock on the judge's door in the middle of the night and get one and go in. the independent source rule is an pensioned to the warrant rule which says, basically, if you would have gotten it -- the evidence anyway, even though you originally got it illegally, it can be used against you. that's what this is based on. >> what if they had been monitoring this home for 30 months. waltz in there and making christmas cookies and didn't find anything. >> in this case the
4:56 am
dissenting judge didn't believe the police. that's the problem here. there was a supreme court case that allowed. this texas has a more restrictive rule against making exceptions to the search warrant requirement. but, in this case the judge just didn't believe the cops. he said you could have gotten a warrant. you could have asked for a warrant. they ended up getting a warrant at 1:auto 50 in the morning. they could have easily tried to get the warrant before walking. in and they waited four hours between the tip and the raid. and then another two hours before getting the warrant at 2:00 in the morning. he just doesn't believe the cops and he said if you had found christmas cookies and no meth, you wouldn't have bothered. >> we wouldn't have been here. they busted a meth lab good for them. >> philip and jonah, thank you so much for your time. it is a sliply slope. you think what that could mean rights as a citizen. >> 7:56 now and a fox news alert for you. there are reports that a u.s. military aircraft has been shot at in sudan wounding three of our service members. we have the breaking details coming up. don't miss it and, a&e pushing phil robertson out
4:57 am
for speaking his mind. but where is the tolerance for his point of view. is this a blatant attack on christians and freedom of speech? governor mike huckabee here at the top of the hour. there he is. hey, mike. farmer: hello, i'm an idaho potato farmer. and our giant idaho potato truck is still missing.
4:58 am
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. but we'd really like our truck back, so if you see it, let us know, would you? thanks. what? a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food.
4:59 am
and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit celebrex.com and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion.
5:00 am
oh, welcome to "fox & friends" weekend. it's saturday, the 21st of december, 2013.anna kooiman. we begin with a fox news alert. four people arrested in that mall shooting that left a man dead, executed in front of his wife. the breaking details ahead. >> and the "duck dynasty" double standard. a&e pushes phil robertson out, off the show for speaking his mind. where is the tolerance for his point of view? shouldn't that be extended to christians, too? governor mike huckabee is here with his view. we have some trouble in outerspace. this is a remarkable live look from outer space as two american astronauts gear up for a risky emergency spacewalk. "fox & friends," our third hour on this saturday starts
5:01 am
right now. >> hi, this is chris ferguson the spawttle "atlantis." you are watching "fox & friends." >> that is so cool. >> out there walking around in space. it's starting to get a little scary. >> those guys are brave. >> it is especially because they are talking about having to have a snorkel in their suit because you remember back in july that italian astronaut his space suit flooded. he almost drowned in there. >> look at that shot. must be like a mel met cam. out there walking around in the space. third one on christmas day. >> on christmas if they don't get it all squared away. hopefully they do. we have other stories getting to making headlines we start with that fox news alert. the associated press is reporting three u.s. service members have been injured in south sudan. rebel fire hitting their aircraft earlier today as they were responding to the scene of some of the nation's worst violence. one of the wounded reportedly in critical condition. we are following the story
5:02 am
closely and we have more and bring it to you once we get it. another fox news alert happening overnight tonight. four men arrested in connection with to a deadly carjacking at upscale new jersey mall. 30-year-old justin freigland shot and killed in front of his wife as the two were finishing up christmas shopping and returning to their car. two men took off in the couple's range rover which was found the next day 10 miles away. details on the arrest have not been released. we should learn a whole lot more about the situation. there is a press conference scheduled for less than an hour from now. and back to that emergency space mission. this is a live look at the international space station. nasa astronauts conducting a very risky spacewalk. they are trying to fix a crippled cooling system. americans rick masterchino and 407 constituency pump module. hopkins using that same space suit that nearly drowned an italian astronaut
5:03 am
in july. installed a snorkel in chase it happens against. spacewalk planned for monday. if all isn't fixed by then conduct a third mission on christmas day as mentioned. those your headlines. >> so, rick, how is the weather out there for them? >> the weather is rough. out there the weather is fine. it's really consistent out there. >> since there is no weather in space. >> exactly. pretty much similar all the time. not the case here. we have big troubles in store today. here are your temps. good idea see this kind of a line right there that something is going on. some severe weather, some precipitation. we have got a lot of precipitation snow, ice and severe weather today. this is where the ice is. additional ice. we have already seen oklahoma city have over about half an inch of ice accumulated across everything. we will be seeing that spread throughout the day today. throughout much of missouri. a little bit of michigan as well. and then areas here across areas of the northeast, we are talking about a very significant icing event. we could be seeing up to an inch of ice across every surface here from parts of northern new york and much
5:04 am
of the northern part of new england. so be very very careful. you can't really drive on that. it causes all kinds of problems. here is the radar picture. can you see the ice beginning to end towards oklahoma city. still going on across much of missouri. we will see snow move in behind this. cold air eventually making its way and significant snow. precipitation pretty much eventually for everybody. flooding concerns but also a big threat for severe weather today where you see this red bulls eye there. a moderate chance for severe weather and could include some very large tornadoes, guys that could be damaging and dangerous. this weekend right before christmas. >> tornadoes in december. >> tornadoes. and big and dangerous ones. >> i hope that doesn't happen. >> you bet. >> appreciate it well, we have who better to dissecond, break down and pull out the significance of the "duck dynasty" matter than governor mike huckabee who joins us now? >> we will pluck those feathers right here. >> don't be a quack. >> i will try not to. i won't duck this issue. you know, i'm probably the only duck hunting fox host here. so that may --
5:05 am
>> waterfowl guy for sure. >> should go together. grow your birdz. >> there you go. okay. i'm glad to hear that. >> do you you use their quackers. >> i'm not a great duck caller. i like other people to call because that way i get to shoot more. the people who call, usually are calling not shooting. >> governor huckabee, a lot of people are saying that the media is really censors phil robertson's first amendment right, freedom of speech concerning christians in particular. do you feel like that's the case? >> technically not censorship since only the governor can censor. certainly restricting. showing incredible lack of openness toward views that don't reflect the politically correct one. i think the only thing that is in no danger than a mallard duck flying over robertson's duck blind is evangelical christian in america who dares to voice an opinion that is based on his or her own understanding of the new testament. i don't know why it should be such a big deal that a person who is a christian
5:06 am
believes in biblical expression of sexuality. to be fair, phil's manner of expressing it, let's just say, was probably a bit coarse. it's the kind of language one might hear in the duck blind, not necessarily on, you know, around the family dinner table. >> the guy makes duck calls in louisiana. this is how he talks. people who don't live in d.c. and new york and santa monica actually talk. >> i perfectly got the whole thing. it was like yeah, i understand that. >> whether you agree with this or not. part of it is cultural. there is a cultural snobbishness for people who aren't like from our neighborhood. >> it's cultural also for phil it's biblical and for many of us finance a biblical issue. not that the bible has been edited in most recent days. people need to remember barack obama in 2008, august at the saddle back forum said that he was against same sex marriage because he was a christian and he said the bible made it so that he couldn't believe that now, my question would be. since 2008, did the bible
5:07 am
get rewritten or did barack obama change his view for political reasons? nobody is asking that question. i think it's a fair one to ask. >> believe that in the first place, do you think? >> probably not. well, obviously he didn't really believe it. if he did it was a convenience not a conviction. you don't change your convictions no matter what it costs you. your conveniences you change always to meet whatever it is you are trying to get. >> what do you think about a&e suspending him? they did have a contract. i know these are your beliefs but i don't want you to say them on the show or in public. >> the simple thing for them to do is to simply say what phil say express what phil believes. phil is an american. is he free to say that it doesn't express what the management of a&e believes. and the end of it. >> going to hurt their brand. >> what's hurt their brand is the idiocy approach this whole issue and the fact they have offended about 100 million evangelical and not just evangelicals, look, this is offensive, i believe, not just to evangelicals and catholics who are bible-based but i think it's also offensive to a lot of fair minded
5:08 am
americans who think that the whole idea of america is more views, not fewer. and that the greater way that we advance as a society is to put more voice into the marketplace, not see how many we can shut up. >> he they actually said that they felt like -- excuse me, getting a little hoarse here. wasn't fair to gay employees and several work on the show and they felt like it was going to be offending them. you bring up the greater issue though is just being tolerant of both sides in all of this. your facebook page that you have constructed has even been censored, it got censored for at least 36 hours. we put up i support free speech.com page and facebook blocked it. and we tried to ask them why and they said well, we are working on that. we have it done within 24 hours and that turned out to be a lie.
5:09 am
>> did they do it. >> they it when we did the chick-fil-a day. >> no way. >> they only blocked it for 12 or 18 hours. >> critical 12 or 18 hours. >> when we first started it, absolutely. as big as it was. and we had millions of people sign up for it when we did chick-fil-a appreciation day. it would have been even bigger had facebook not blocked it political correctness has overcome the idea of liberty and freedom. >> isn't it about marketplace though? if you don't like what phil said, don't watch that show. if you don't like what the horn owner of chick-fil-a says, don't eat his sandwiches. >> look, i don't agree with ceo of apple computer says. i have an iphone and ipad and mac book and a mac -- and an i mac. i have an apple tv. do i quit buying apple products? do i quit drinking starbucks because howard schultz is more left than i am? , no. because i don't necessarily
5:10 am
buy his political views. i'm buying his product. if his product is good, i'm buying his product. separate an individual and allow him to be who he is and say you know what? i like what he does. i watch movies of artists all the time whose personal and political views i find ridiculous. but i can respect him as an artist, whether they are musicians or actors. >> i think it's scarier that facebook is trying to censor your page than a&e firlg the -- firing the robertsons. they will find another place to go. facebook serves as a public utility. everybody uses it. >> i understand. >> have the power to shut it down if they don't like your views? >> obviously they do. i find that a little bit -- i won't use the word frightening because, you know, if they continue to do that and enough people disguise that they are shutting out their views maybe myspace will come back. >> or twitter will eat them up. >> i are a man of faith,
5:11 am
aren't you? >> no, not that much faith. >> governor, thank you so much. we will keep you hear. because coming up. she has just been named by barbara walters as most fascinating person of the year is, this the media, already choosing sides for 2016. the governor sticking around for that. >> and they fought for our freedom, but now they are fighting to keep their jobs. two vets say they have been suspended from the police department for serving their country. that story next.
5:12 am

[ laughter ] >> what the -- reminds you. >> if if you get that from the benghazi comment.
5:16 am
the point being if hillary runs, she is still going to have to answer for that statement. and for what happened in benghazi because it did happen on her watch. so, i'm not convinced yet she is going to run, although everybody else seems to be convinced. >> naming her callated? >> i think it is. i mean, it's a great jump start for her 2016 campaign, if, in fact, she is going to run. but then who else has barbara got to push? joe biden? i don't think so. >> hillary is the favorite of people like barbara walters. a democrat, affluent, coastal, but i don't think hillary is the favorite of the democrats who choose the nominee. they are mad about the banks and about war. and hillary is on the wrong side of both of those issues from their perspective. >> i think the democrats have an opportunity to have quite the primary and it could be somebody, maybe a governor from the midwest, somebody in the democratic party who has been more like bill clinton came. in not the far left barack obama brand of the democratic party, but somebody who can maybe appeal to the people the

democrats are really losing. and that's all those folks in fly over land which are disappearing from the democratic ranks. >> so when the election really gets fired up here. not very long from now, do you think the media take her to task for that benghazi comment? >> of course they won't. i think conservative media will attempt to. but will the mainstream media? will the liberal media? do you think she will be asked that on a 60 mince interview? absolutely not. they will leave that alone. >> how hard a time are democrats going to have anyway. there is talk of the death of the ideology even because of the fallout from obamacare and we have shown all these polls where people are scared of big government now. >> they ought to be scared of big government. because the most classic example we have seen of what big government is really capable of is obamacare. we he have seen what a complete disaster it's become. but, if you look at the democratic party, it used to be that there were people all over the political spectrum within the democratic party. that no longer the case. there are no blue dogs in congress.

5:24 am
his wife all the time, due her bidding without question. not happiness but frustration. and a crumbling marriage because the more he agreed the more miserable he was and the more resentful she was. they had to stop the study because their marriage was collapsing. >> here to weigh in robby ludwig and relations expert good morning. >> good morning. >> we had governor mike huckabee on a moment ago. he said rule number one when you are married. is he about to be married 40 years you can't make a woman happy no matter. what is that the truth? >> smart man. >> i don't think that's true. there are many women who are happy with their husbands. so i'm sure that your wife is happy with you she may lie and say no and make you work for it. >> what if you do say yes all the time. >> study. one individual. but. >> you can't be the yes man. >> the yes man, tv show all the time. otherwise you will drive yourself crazy. but you have to pick your battling. i say yes sometimes when i don't really believe it just because it's easier i know

bears. how nice? mike, over to you. >> target is trying to make good this weekend. offering its 10% employee discount to shoppers following that massive breach of its customers' credit card, debit card information. and if you are run one of the 40 million people to have their credit card information stolen between black friday and december 15th. i'm sure you have some questions. going to get answers for you right now. let's talk to privacy and security expert john celio. john good to have you here. >> good to be back. >> i will tell you i almost get the feeling i need to check my credit card information on any other credit card web site every day. >> yeah, i think right now that's probably a great idea to monitor it. the other thing to make it easier, you can set up online accounts alerts with those credit card -- those different credit cards so you automatically are alerted any time there is activity on that card. >> that happens to me all
5:45 am
the time. i have a pretty good credit card service. wait a minute, that doesn't seem like mike is buying stuff. we should all have that right? >> yeah no, question. even separate from this breach we should all have that. it makes it very convenient. if you didn't spend the money you know it i shut the card down fraud. >> if can you prove it's fraud, the banks normally will give you the money back. >> yeah, particularly with a credit card it's very easy to shut that down. with a debit card, that links directly to your bank account so if you were using a debit card at target, that's something that you would -- i would probably consider canceling because that goes right into your bank. >> i guess the same question right back at you then. so if i was in a target between black friday and the 15th of this month, wouldn't it make sense to just go ahead and cancel the credit card? >> you know, mike, i think it is. i cancelled mine. i was in target. we shop at target all the time. i think because a lot of times these criminals let the numbers lay dormant poor six months or a year. we don't each know that there is going to be fraud. so rather than do guesswork,
5:46 am
be preventative. don't be paranoid about it go out and cancel the card. >> when i i swipe the card, what information is on that little strip on the back? >> the information is your name, your account number, and and the cvv code which is different from the code sometimes on the front of the card. it's enough in some cases that you can make a duplicate. a replica card that they can go out and spend on just like they are you. >> but my social security number wouldn't be on there. so how easily could they steal my identity? >> you know, for true identity theft with the social security number, your credit are r. they probably think. target says they don't think social security numbers were involved. these stories evolve over time. sometimes we find there is more data breached and than we started with. wait to be seen if this is true identity theft. >> do you think target
5:47 am
credit information was stolen, could that make their credit score go down? >> >> you know, absolutely. if somebody goes out and uses credited and you don't catch it for 30 or 60 days and they are spending on your credit card, it can effect it. so, my recommendation is, you know, freeze your credit. you do a security freeze to expeerian, equifax and transunion. you protect that credit. by the way, you should do that anyway independent of this breach. >> i want to do what you do, john, how do you protect yourself on a daily basis? >> you know, on a daily basis, i make sure i'm watching my wealth. i'm watching it with the account alert. i freeze what i can. you know, one thing in the holidays that i do when i'm done with the shopping system, i cancel my card anyway. i have used it so much online. i have used it in person. and when you cancel it, it's a little bit of inconvenience but suddenly it's not sitting in all of those databases to be breached over and over again like we see every month.
5:48 am
>> look at that telephone number down there, 866-852-8680. 40 million people are affected. do you think i can get through on that line? have you tried? >> no. you know, right now that's the biggest problem is people can't get through to targets. even though cancel their target red card. my recommendation is go online. get into your account online and cancel through that. if that's what you need to do or at least report fraud. >> you can get another credit card in 24 hours? do they ship it out to you. >> you know, if you make a big enough deal, they will fedex you one the next day absolutely. >> john, thanks a lot. good tips. >> always good to see you, happy holidays. >> merry christmas and happy new year. a&e pushing phil robertson out for speaking his mind. but where's the tolerance for his point of view? is this a blatant attack on christians and free speech? karl rove joins us next hour. then, traveling for christmas? i bet you are. don't be a victim to this baggage handlers caught

from shaming the network with comments or embarrassing them in any way or format. the other thing is, phil robertson was seen on youtube, too. that's out there for everybody to see. basically saying these types of beliefs in front of a church crowd and getting a standing ovation for it. it was online. they had seen that, too. this is a reality show. now he is getting punished for being real. >> let's get perspective here. a&e is calling its advocates for the lgbt community. all of a sudden they are political activists. they have been moved to this position by glaad which claims falsely to represent all guys and lesbians. if you say something we don't agree with, you ought to be punished. this is the opposite of tolerance. >> there was an interesting take by harvey levin, the guy with that tmz show.
6:04 am
he's an attorney, he's guy and he made these comments. see if you agree with him. >> this country was founded on freedom of religion. that's one of the reasons we broke from england. it just seems to me that you have to tolerate things, even things that are abhorrent as long as they are not hurting other impeachment the irony here, i've got groups like glaad saying we are pushing tolerance. accept us because, just because we're different doesn't mean you shouldn't embrace us. you could make the same argument about this guy. if you're going to accept tolerance on one side, accept it on the other. it seems to me as long as he's not hurting me or other people and he's not propagating doing bad things to people, i don't see how you can punish him for how he feels, especially when you knew going in. >> phil robertson, when you think of what he said, never called for anyone at glaad to be
6:05 am
fired or their voices to be squelched or them to be quiet. you know what i mean? he disagrees but is allowing other people to have divergent views. >> a&e thought their brand would be hurt and people wouldn't watch the show. it's the opposite now there is more interest in the program. all their merchandise, the "duck dynasty" merchandise at walmart is selling like hot cakes. >> it's a $400 million empire they have. walmart isn't saying what their relationship will be going forward. they are reaping the rewards from everything that's happening with a&e. we are hearing from a&e this morning that they didn't want to hurt the feelings of their guy employees. there are several who work on show and they felt like these comments were hurtful toward them. >> then pull the show. >> we had governor huckabee on. let's be totally honest here. it's not that offensive views
6:06 am
aren't allowed, it's certain kind of views aren't allowed. the least popular group among the people who run television networks or evangelical christians. >> the only thing in more danger than a mallard duck is an evangelical christian saying something based on his or her belief of the testament. the simple thing is to say what phil said expressed what phil believes. phil is an american and he is free to say that. it doesn't express what the management of a&e believes and the end of it. >> phil has the right to say it if he wants to and the right to pull the plug. the robertsons have the right to walk away, too. if they do, i don't think it will take long for another network to pick them up and start making a lot of money. >> if you don't like his
6:07 am
comments, don't watch the show. >> will be interesting to see the next time someone makes a comment about how christians are stupid or jesus isn't real if that person will be canned or not. we have other news stories today. we start with a fox news alert. now confirming four u.s. service members have been injured in south sudan. the pentagon says rebel fire hitting at least two aircraft earlier today as they were responding to the scene of some of the nation's worst violence. onewounded in critical condition. the aircraft were a combination helicopter and airplane and part of a mission to evacuate american citizens in the capital city. we are following this story closely. back to that emergency space mission. this is a live look now. the international space station, nasa astronauts conducting a risky space walk trying to fix a
6:08 am
crippled cooling system. working to replace a faulty pump module. the space walk scheduled to last 6 1/2 hours. the second space walk is planned for monday. if all isn't fixed, they'll have a third one on christmas day. long distance love staying strong through the christmas season for a new york couple. check out this christmas card. sergeant daniel purdue stationed in afghanistan. his wife 7,000 miles away in upstate new york. they took a picture and photo shopped it together. this picture is going viral. so far away yet so close. >> that's cool. our other big story is this nasty weather. holiday winter havoc as millions head home for the christmas holiday. another winter storm is crippling travel plans for millions. this is video of the state of illinois where there was a 20-car pile-up on the icy roads there. this weekend kicks off the big holiday travel push. aaa is projecting record travel this holiday season.
6:09 am
experts say more than 0% of travelers will get there by car. rick if we are all going to be in our cars, what are the roads like? >> good news is monday and tuesday and wednesday and thursday are looking fine. once we are done with this storm, weather is good. if your travel plans or monday or tuesday, you're fine. this weekend is a big problem time. you see temperatures there where the wafrmt the warmth is across the east. cold air is in place on the surface across places like oklahoma and much of missouri. the precipitation is falling as rain but hits the ground freezing below it and freezes on contact. that's been going on all night long. that is the case across northern parts of new york and much of northern new england over the weekend. that area is going to be seeing the worst of it eventually. we had an inch of ice accumulating across parts of oklahoma in towards missouri. we'll see more. our eyes tomorrow ice could be
6:10 am
part of new york and that could cause big-time problems. there is moisture with this system. a lot of areas are going to see two to four inches. some spots maybe more than four inches of rain. flooding is a big concern across the ohio valley. the central area of the central mississippi valley. flash flood warnings in places like the boot hill of missouri. then this afternoon, we are going to start to see the warm air get into place and upper level energy move in here across parts of the plains. a big severe weather outbreak possible this afternoon. louisiana in towards western parts of tennessee, kentucky, towards mississippi get ready. we could be looking at a big tornado outbreak this afternoon. tough to see this weather. people potentially tomorrow with a lot of destruction. >> you keep talking about major tornado activity. >> this is a day, sunday you could see minor tornados which can cause damage, but today is
6:11 am
the chance for the large, more destructive long-lasting damage. >> i hope for once you're wrong. >> i do, too. >> between that and the ice. charge your phones because you may be out of power. >> good point. a&e pushing phil robertson out for speaking his mind. where is the tolerance for his point of view? karl rove next. the cutest video you'll see all day. a service dog makes a new friend. he thinks that mascot is a real dog. farmer: hello, i'm an idaho potato farmer.

6:15 am
dynasty" phil robertson after his comments to "gq" magazine this week. could that mean they are losing their hit show? >> i can't wait to hear the comments of karl rove. welcome to the show. >> mike, how are you? >> feeling darn good. this isn't a first amendment thing, is it? >> no. look. phil doesn't have a first amendment right to have a television show, but he does have a first amendment right to express his views. a&e should not have been surprised by his views as an evangelical christian homosexuality is a sin and god designed man and woman to be together. this is something they knew before he began the show. he may have said it in an offensive manner and he didn't say it on the air. it strikes me the punishment is not fitting the offense. >> you get the sense watching the coverage on this, glaad, the group that pushed for him to be
6:16 am
silence represents all guy people, you don't get the sense it has political affiliations or a political agenda. >> but it does. we saw it in the commends of some of the leadership of glaad. one in particular said in essence if you don't agree with us on the question of guy marriage then you're a bigot. i can't add much new to this. i thought your earlier comments where you talked about governor huckabee's comments, the fellow from tmz framed it up well. there is something else going on here. a&e could have dealt with this by saying, as you said earlier, these are phil's views, not our views. they could have suspended him for a short period of time. this whole thing is much bigger than i think it's justified. i don't agree with the offensive nature. you read some of these things and cringe. is there a reason why they are not appearing in the press. as a christian, he believes
6:17 am
this. we ought to have a certain measure of tolerance for disagreements over opinions to accept people who have different opinions. his are clearly born out of his faith. >> i think we can close the topic on that for the rest of today. did you watch the press conference by the president yesterday? >> i did. >> we are going to play a little ma montage of some of the questions. >> you look the american people in the eye and said we've got the right balance. six months later saying, maybe not. my question is, do you have any personal regret? to you personally, what do you think has been your biggest mistake? >> you expect americans to have confidence and certainty in this law if you keep changing it? >> i would like to ask what your reaction was to the nonpartisan
6:18 am
truth-telling group politifact when they said the lie of the year was your statement, if you like your health care plan, you keep it. >> i would just get on a plane and go to hawaii after that. is the media getting tougher? >> they are getting a little tougher. this is where they ought to have been right from the beginning. they've got a wealth of material to work from here. they couldn't ignore it any longer. they started to ask tough questions. the purpose of the press corps is to discomfort any president. this press corps with a few exceptions, ed henry, jonathan carl of abc, this has been a docile press corps which has been interested in glorification of the leader rather than asking tough questions of the chief executive of the united states. bless them for finally doing it. of course it's during the christmas holidays. people are occupied with a lot
6:19 am
of other things. the president is ready to disappear to hawaii. it's going to be forgotten. let's see if they are similarly tough when they come back the first of the year. >> the white house announced another exemption to obama care. people who lost their insurance because of obama care won't be bound by the individual mandate for a while. they are changing this law on the fly. what are the politics of that. does that work? do people think that's okay or don't they? >> this is the 12th such change. remember, they are using a provision that said if you're under 30 or if you have an extreme hardship, you're allowed to buy a catastrophic policy for the coming year. what's the hardship here? that you're subject to the affordable care act. to me this is an extraordinary admission by the administration. to handle the problems by the people who lost their coverage as a result of the affordable care act, the exchanges don't work. they are unaffordable, they are unattractive. all their earlier efforts to
6:20 am
cure their problems haven't worked. it says if it's good enough for people who had insurance and lost it, why is this catastrophic coverage possibility not good for people who never had insurance? why don't we provide the same opportunity for the uninsured? the deeper we look into this, the worse it looks. i think forbes.com did an interesting analysis. in california you could get an old catastrophic policy for $92. the cheapest under the exchanges is $205 a month. a new catastrophic policy costs $184 a month. it costs twice as much as it used to cost before the affordable care act. >> karl, thank you. have a great christmas. >> ask tuck ber all the decorations he puts around his house. the guy goes crazy. gigantic 14-foot snowman, santa claus on the roof, major scene with live lambs. one year he had a camel in his
6:21 am
front yard. amazing. >> i can't believe you just outed me. >> inflatables, tucker? >> gigantic, inflatable snowman, 18 feet. >> i'm turning red.has a handmade ornament. that's why we've set up santa's wonderland at bass pro shops. where kids can get their picture with santa and this week make a reindeer gift bag, all for free. wow...look at you. i've always tried to give it my best shot. these days i'm living with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis. and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding

>> imagine living across the street? >> unbelievable. >> we did a segment, very strong segment you did a couple of hours ago about a guy came on, lives in brooklyn. he's been studying this. >> former ins officer. >> the u.s. government may be involved in smuggling children? >> it is absolutely involved. the department of homeland security has in a couple of instances at least, and this has been confirmed by a federal judge, taken children who has been smuggled into this country and taken them to their parents in the united states or who are here illegally. has acted as a link in the chain moving these kids illegally into the country and leaving them here. also not enforcing the law, breaking the law, in fact. >> which is something that just seems reminiscent of other things the obama administration has done, too. there are some laws that maybe are inconvenient to follow and somehow they pick and choose which ones to really make sure
6:34 am
are enforced. here is what he had to say earlier. >> let's remember we have immigration laws for two primary purposes. to protect american lives and protect the jobs of american workers. how does having immigration hand-deliver illegal alien children to the illegal alien parent and not act against the illegal alien parent? how does that create more incentives for more people to come here in violation of our borders and laws? >> so it's hard to argue with that point. the whole purpose of having the department of homeland security is to carry out the law. >> they should be doing the opposite, get the illegals out of here? >> that's what they are supposed to do legally. you could argue you don't think we should have laws that prevent people from coming in at will. maybe you don't believe in borders or laws. fine. but as of today, that's the law. for the obama administration
6:35 am
acting willfully against the law, i don't think you need to be an obama hater to see that as scary. >> the judge weighed in on this and said the dhs policy is as legal as taking illegal drugs and weapons seized from smugglers and delivering them to the criminals who initially solicited their illegal importation/exportation. legally, this situation is no different. >> it would be like taking weapons, firearms and letting them wind up in the hands of mexican drug cartels. they did that, "fast and furious." the law matters. you may disagree with the law or not. that's irrelevant. the government cannot act against its own laws. at that point you have, you're moving toward dictatorship. >> nobody is saying these poor children shouldn't be with their parents, but they should be in the country they are legally allowed to be. this is exactly what's happening.
