tv Shepard Smith Reporting FOX News October 10, 2014 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT
found himself replaying janet jackson and justin timberlake's performance more. thank you for your comments today and every day. and thank you for being part of "the real story." now over to harris for shep. >> i am harris faulkmer in today for shepard smith. new word the white house is considering closing guantanamo bay. by overriding congress to do it. ahead, the administration and republicans respond. we'll look at whether this could actually happen. also, reports that islamic state militants are closer than ever to baghdad. with attacks right in the suburbs, but do the terrorists really have a shot at taking the capitol city? and stunning details about the patient in texas who died of ebola. the "associated press" is now reporting his hospital records show he had a 103-degree fever, and he told a nurse he is recently traveled to west africa. so, why in the world did doctors
at first send him home? we begin with the dire warning out of the middle east. military sources say islamic state terrorist are closing in on the big prize, baghdad. the fierce fighting is happening just a few miles outside iraq's capital city. still, pentagon officials are playing down any risk that baghdad will fall. referring to the raging battle friday the city's suburbs as, quote, harass. at best. harassment to describe a group that brags about cutting off innocent people's heads. raping teenage girls. burning people to death and burying religious minorities alive. take a look at the wall now. the pentagon confirms isis terrorists are fighting in abu ghraib on the outskirts of the iraq capital. only ought mimes from dab airport. the landing spot for vital supplies in the fight against isis.
it's believed this terror army has shoulder-fired missiles and if they get close to that airport, it could be catastrophic. it's safe right now there but this undoubtedly is high on the islamic state's wish list, as you might imagine. and we know what's happening in syria. awe united nations official says isis is tightening the noose around that town. we have been reporting on the battle for kobani. a key access point to turkey. u.s.-l.e.d. airstrikes have pounded isis but it's not stopping them. a u.n. official is reporting hundreds of civilians are trapped inside at the town. he says if the terrorists take control, they'll likely slaughter all of the citizens. it's just adding new urgency to america's new war, and president obama's promise to degrade and destroy the islamic state. we have live team fox coverage
now, greg palkot on the ground near the turkey/syria barder. first, wendell goler who is live the house. what is the white house saying. >> the folks here don't think isis can take the city. no indication there's going to be any change in the president's policy of no u.s. boots on the ground. isis is moving through a sunni muslim dominated area, anbar, but baghdad is more of a shia enclave. >> iraqi security forces around baghdad are strong, under constant assessment. the embassy remains open. we continue to conduct business. we deployed a significant number of our own military personnel to iraq and the region for the protection of american personnel and advise and assist iraqi forces. >> even experts who agree that isis can't capture dab say the group could cause problems with terrorist attacks that wind up weakening iraqi's confidence their government can protect
them. >> i understand the president has a schedule full of campaigning today. >> well, he is campaigning like most of the members of congress, though mr. obama is giving speeches to donors instead of people who may or may not have made up their minds who to vote for. he talked to big money democrats at gwyneth paltrow's house in california. she gushed but former reagan chief of staff says democrats might be better served by mr. obama adopting a rose garden strategy. >> really needs the rose gadden strategy. he needs to stay in the white house and look like he is tending to business. that's what the american people want right now. they want a president who is rolling up his sleeves, totally engaged, and is communicating not only inside the white house but to the american people. >> also in california the president's designating a third of a million acres of forestland in the san gabriel mountains
oses a national monument. >> a rose garden strategy to look like he is tending to business. now, wendell goler, and greg palkot near the syrian border. where the fight for kobani is raging right behind you, greg. >> raging indeed. u.s. air attacks have stepped up against isis but the terrorists do not seem to be slowing down. our sources have confirmed that isis has seized the kurdish defenders headquarters in the center of the city. we heard a ferocious guckfight from there all day and isis is controlling the only border crossing between kobani and turkey and that's the only way the kurdish can get casualties and civilians out and reinforcements in. since monday there have been 32 u.s. airstrike against isis, in and around kobani. the concern here is that they have come too late.
alongside is today at the border, rows and rows of turnish tanks. they're not moving or firing. turkey does not want to get involved and that is sparking deadly riots this week between ethnic kurds and security. john ale len didn't seem to be able to move the turkish either. he met with officials, and nothing substantive came out. that's bad news for the folks trapped inside the town of kobani. back to you. >> that is not good, greg palkot, thank you very much. let's bring in from d.c. retired air force colonel sedrick laton, former u.s. air force intelligence officer and was the joint chiefs of step deputy director for war fighter support good to have you. the administration is taking flak for this being a bombing for political reasons, for show. that assumes we may actually be feared in any regard. i understand you say it's far
worse than this, this is no air campaign at all. why? >> that's right, harris. it is no air campaign because when you compare the number of flights made with armament in the beginning of iraqi freedom or the beginning of desert storm, this is not even a tenth of what we did during those nights of initial campaigning, so that is why this is not a real air campaign, and we really need careful how we characterize this event. >> well, why would i imagine would we want to give the enemy more time? i think effectively that is what you're talking about. give. thursday moment time to gear up for more atrocities. >> that's right. one of the biggest things we need to look at is the fact when you mount a campaign of this style, of this type, what you want to do is you want to make sure you have the element of surprise on your side. and we lost that in so many ways when it comes to not only the iraqi campaign against isis, but also the syrian phase of this
campaign, and i think it's very important that we maintain that element of surprise, and the fact we have lost it creates some unique difficulties not only for air power but for future policy options in general. >> colonel, quickly, about kobani particular, 700 people trapped inside the city, yet i'm hearing military analysts say we shouldn't keep kobani at all costs. what does that mean? >> i think we have to be careful. i'd like to keep kobani it's very important for the people in the kurdish side of the border to have a lifeline to turkey. it's extremely important that they have that. but the problem you have is you have to look at what is more important, and baghdad is more important than kobani is at this point. >> let's talk about baghdad. the bigger fight, the green zone. has the world's largest u.s. embassy. so much blood and treasure spent securing iraq. we know what it cost to fight for it the first time. what will we do to fight isis in iraq that we might not do anywhere else?
>> well, if baghdad is threatened, if baghdad is about to become victim to isis or even if baghdad is about to be encircled by isis, it's really in our national interests we put a stop to that, and go ahead and make a difference when it comes to the fighting on the ground and that we really do a lot from an air campaign perspective as well as a special operations perspective that we have not seen right now at this point in this campaign. so it becomes really important for us to really have a very cold-eyed view of what we want in our national interests and that means we plea serve what we have done in iraq, that we protect baghdad at all costs, and that we send a message to isis that we will protect baghdad at all costs and that's something that we have not done up until this point. >> colonel layton, with let you go, how surprised are you we have gotten to the point we may now have to defend baghdad? >> i think it's a very bad situation. i am surprised that we let it go
this far, this long, without engaging in effective action. what this means is we have let politics decide exactly how we're going to conduct a military campaign, and unfortunately military campaigns don't wait for politics. they don't wait for us to look at it in that way. they have their own realities, and we're dealing with that reality right now. >> i tell you, the enemy waits for no one. it has its own agenda. thank you for your expertise and joining us on this friday. >> you bet, harris. it's my pleasure. >> we now know that thomas duncan, the ebola patient in dallas, texas, who died, had a fever of 103 when he went to the hospital and told a staffer he had been to west africa. days later, dead. why did the hospital let him go home in the first place? it could become the focus of a lawsuit. stay close. so i can reach ally bank 24/7, but there are no branches? 24/7 it's just i'm a little reluctant to try new things. what's wrong with trying new things? feel that in your muscles? yeah... i do...
try a new way to bank, where no branches equals great rates. i had tried to do it in the past.ng with chantix. i hadn't been successful. quitting smoking this time was different because i talked to my doctor and i... i got a prescription for chantix. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it was important to me that chantix was a non-nicotine pill. the fact that it reduced the urge to smoke helped me get that confidence that i could do it. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or
actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i am very proud. i love myself as a nonsmoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. we asked people a question how much money do you think you'll need when you retire? then we gave each person a ribbon to show how many years that amount might last.
i was trying to like, pull it a little further got me to 70 years old i'm going to have to rethink this thing it's hard to imagine how much we'll need for a retirement that could last 30 years or more. so maybe we need to approach things differently, if we want to be ready for a longer retirement. ♪ the first person ever diagnosed with ebola in the united states had a fever of 103. during his first visit to the emergency room in dallas. but doctors still sent him home. that's according to medical records his family has now given to the "associated press." thomas duncan died this week, and as we have been reporting he initially went to the e. er lamonth. the ap is reporting his fever spiked so high and somebody flagged it in the recordkeeping
system, and he reported pain, dizziness and other things thind told a nurse he had been to west africa, and a nurse recorded it. despite that the doctors gave him antibiotics and sent him home. he was hospitalized in isolation a few days later. john roberts is live in atlanta. any word from the not. >> the hospital is responding, not directly to the family's accusations but did issue a statement in which it said, quote, texas health presbyterian continues to closely review and evaluate the chain of events related to duncan's first visit and that, quote, we have made changes to our intake process as well as other procedures to better screen for all critical indicators of ebola virus. duncan's case is front and center at a congressional hearing today at dallas-fort worth airport. house homeland security chairman saying we need to learn from the mistakes made in texas and make sure they're not repeated and called on colleagues in congress to get together to keep
americans safe from ebola. >> now is not the time for politics. congress has been loathe to get anything done this session, and if there's ever been a time to come together and put pettiness aside, it is now. >> a cdc representative who has testified before the hearing went asked about the situation in west africa and how quickly the number of cases is exploding there, said we're already at the point where we need to pull out all the stops if we hope to get a handle on this. >> pulling out all the stops. they're trying different things. talk to us about how they're treating people with ebola in west africa since we have to hope to stop it there first. >> well, obviously they're doing all 0 they can, but look at this. this is ebola by the numbers. these are the supplies needed according to doctors without borders. what it takes to treat the average ebola patient every day, 52.8 gallons of water, 20 gallons of bleach, eight pairs of rubber gloves, tree
body suits, typical ebola treatment facility with 125 patients would require on a daily basis 6,600-gallons of water, 2500-gallons of breech, 1,050 rubber gloves and 350 body suits. that amount of water in west africa, particularly in the remote areas, trying to treat here's patients, very hard to come by. so this really is difficult. with the way, alert this hour, we are getting reports out of las vegas that a plane, delta flight 404, is being quarintined at mccarran airport. we have a call in to el -- to delta airlines. they say they have something going on with an aircraft but have not heard of it's related to ebola. >> you need clean water north just water. what you're talking about in those remote areas, they don't have any running clean water. john roberts, we'll check back with you. >> world health officials say more than 4,000 people have died
in the ebola outbreak but the real total is probably higher than that. here's other cases we're watching, first in brazil. health officials say doctors are test manage who traveled there from west africa. he had a fever when he arrived at the hospital. he is now in isolation, although docs say she is showing no other symptoms. right now there are no confirmed cases of ebola in latin america. now to macedonia. in southeast europe right next to greece, hotel remains on lockdown with two dozen people inside. we told you about this yesterday as it was breaking news when it happened in that country's capital city. a british traveler died there at that hotel. doctors said he had symptoms similar to ebola. now they say it's unlikely that he had the virus based on initial tests. in fact, they reportedly say the man may have died from drinking too much alcohol. i was traveling with a friend but that friend is not showing any signs of ebola at this point. full test results are expected
tomorrow. now to spain. a hospital official there saying that the ebola patient there is now stable. she is a nursing assistant who officials say may have gotten the disease after she touched her face with an infected glove. she says the first person -- she was the first person to have caught ebola outside of west africa, and you saw her in that picture with her dog. they euthanized the dog but not clear whether he had been exposed to the virus. it is worth repeating that patient in spain is the only person confirmed to have contracted ebola outside of west africa. we'll move on now. we'll dig deeper into the dallas ebola case-what the hospital may have missed and whether that could mean a potential lawsuit, and a hazmat team rushed on to a flight after a passenger supposedly made a joke about having ebola. there's cell phone video of all of this and the flight attendant's choice word for the passenger.
more now on the dallas ebola case involving the first person ever diagnosed with the virus in the united states. new today, the "associated press" is reporting medical records showing that patient had a 103-degree fever during his first visit to the emergency room. they also show somebody even flagged that fever in the hospital's recordkeeping system. he complained about pain, dizziness and other issues. still, they gave him antibiotics and sent him home. the patient wound up back in the hospital and died a couple days ago. could that's open up the hospital to potential lawsuits? let's bring in professor of medicine at nyu medical center and part of our fox news medical a-team, and doug burns, former federal prosecutor and current criminal defense attorney. go to have you both. my first question, what did the
hospital do ongoing? we have an opportunity. the doctor is somebody that you actually put on the stand. >> absolutely. >> so counsel, have at it. >> counsel, ten years of e.r. experience. >> anything you notice ned the intake of this patient that would cause you some concern in terms of what they asked him and what symptoms he was reporting. >> disclaimer. first i have to see all 1300 pages of the records to know for sure. i'm only seeing a summary. temperature, fever, 103 degrees, abdomennal pain, dizziness, headaches, and decreased urination, which is a red flag. that's often a sign they're going into septic shock. if that's true, not only would have to be admitted but into the intensive care unit. >> do you have an opinion about them sending him home. >> don't have the actual records to look at. i would say in a similar case it's very unlikely that i as a physician in an emergency room would send a patient home. >> does an emergency room physician typically ask for travel and work history? >> absolutely, and not only that, we would take it a step
further. if i heard liberia i would ask specific questions who they might be in contact with and slap on an antibiotic? what am i treating? always got to decide in the emergency room what are you treating? >> that's how it would play out in terms of trying to show whether or not there was negligence. they owe him a duty of care you. call somebody like dr. seeingle and ask those questions. >> give me the hospital's argument. >> the hospital argument will be they'll call a competing expert doctor, then in fairness, that doctor is under an oath to look at the material, and he may turn around and say, he didn't think it was negligent. a battle of experts. >> i have a question for you. what about the negligence of the hospital the community? sending home someone who has ebola putting other people at risk. >> a fantastic point. not only may they have fallen short on the treatment of this particular patient, and this by the way segways into what happened tess airport when people come in from west africa.
that's a separate problem. >> all right. >> but the doctor's opinion is, what about sending him back into the community? >> then you potentially are putting a whole lot of lives at risk. so let's broaden this out. if someone actually contracts ebola based on having been exposed to this patient and they weren't in that initial category of high-risk people they could trace, but just somebody who might have come -- somehow come into contact, maybe used to bathroom after he did -- we don't know. would they potentially have lawsuit. >> that's what we call causation, if you're negligent and you do something defifth, that's step one. step two, is would cause the other person to contract it. >> i've been talking to people in dallas. there's a lot of public fears but the farther from this the less likely there's going to be a second case, and someone like that would have to be in direct contact with secretions somewhere. >> can you take a basic fact, wipe away the fear.
that's something you're good at doing. >> can you imagine that a guy like this, this sick -- because the sicker you are we ebola, the more likely you are to spread it of the. vomiting in ambulances-going all over town with a high fever, and yet we don't see a second case yet. there may still be one. it shows you just how difficult it is to contract ebola. >> okay. >> despite all the fumbling. >> could you speak for these cases, these supposed cases that pop up and then take the test and it's negative. is the fear driving that or doctors being extra careful? >> it's both and also we have to remember, there's diseases like malaria that are rampant in west africa, and you can come from the same area of liberia, have a headache, fever, muscle headaches, probably have malaria, more likely. >> you brought up the airport cleaners and the situation of the port authority yesterday saying, we're going tougher you guys more of the equipment to clean up those jets. those airliners coming in. what about the screeners. thes? >> that's legally a critical
question, who can lawyers name a case. hospital, hospital workers, er physicians, but we trace it back to the airport as well, maybe an airline or airport maintenance company. so goes to how wide it is. you can't prejudge a case like this, whether or not there's negligence, but again, that's what will be parsed out in court. >> if somebody says i got it because i was on this flight and it wasn't cleaned properly. you could -- >> it's kind of a mixed bag. >> if you didn't have symptoms on the flight. you. >> bingo. you guys are rock stars, thank you very much. well, joking about ebola on the airplane these days is a lot like saying you have a bomb. that's the lesson one passenger learned on a u.s. airways flight from philly to the dominican republic, the passenger yelled he had ebola and had been to
africa. after landing the plane spent an hour in isolation before hazmat crews arrived. a flight attendant tried to calm passengers. >> i've done this for 36 years. i think the man who sid this is an idiot. keep your wits about you. we have people coming on that -- we've all been watching the news, and so they look like they're in a little bubble machine. this is all new territory for all of us. i'm trying to -- thank you for your patience. >> got to tell you, seeing an attorney react to that video, looks like she did all the right things there, trying to calm everybody down that hazmat crew took the man off the plane. >> [bleep] >> na na na na. >> you're hearing the passengers taunting that man as they were taking him away. the man was coughing about
medics say said he did not have a fever. >> teenage women from the west are reportedly running away to syria to mary isis militants and help rates the next generation of terror savages. we'll take a look at the islamic state's recruiting tactics and hear from some heartbroken relatives about this. there's word president obama is considering making another push to close guantanamo bay without the approval of congress. the response from the white house. coming up from the fox news deck.

the islamic state is preying on young western women, recruiting them to be wives, baby-sitters and housekeepers for men waging a bloody terror campaign in iraq and sirarch according to the "associated press." it reports isis is using propaganda videos and a vast network of recruiters to reach out to teenage women onlinen and vince them to travel to syria. the brother of one recruit calls
it, quote, reproduction machine. meanwhile, u.s. officials say a dozen americans have gone to fight with isis. leah gabrielle is here. i want to learn more how they're recruiting these young women. >> 100 young women have left france to do this. some were not even muslim before they left. check this out. this is a young woman -- actually the wrong picture -- we have a picture of her where she was captured on train station surveillance video ex-wearing a head scarf, on the day she left for syria back in march. this is another picture we have of her here. she was raised in a muslim family but surprised them when she started wearing the full veil. her mother says she spent a lot of time on the internet and must have been brain washed. listen. >> translator: it's crazy. the problem is we're powerless. we're the parents and we tell yourselves we can do nothing, nothing and yet i always told my
children i'd go to the ends of the earth for them, or i'd do everything i could, except for today. >> she says she has spoken with her daughter on the phone, but that she believes the calls are actually scripted. she says that her daughter has said that she wants to stay there and that she hopes her mother will accept her, harris, for her new husband and new faith. >> we didn't need an interpreter there to tell us the heardache that mom is feeling. i understand something similar happened to another young girl a couple months before this. >> this time a 15-year-old girl. her brother says he has since learned she was leaving the house wearing a pullover and a pair of jeans and then changing. this is a cell phone video he showed us of her. she is only showing her eyes which she says are teary. he says he was able to go to syria to visit her. listen. >> translator: normally she is darker than i imbut when i saw her she was white, her face
swollen with ailow tint issue thought the had reached a psychological threshold. she wouldn't stop crying and banging her head against the wall. >> he says his sister told him she wanted to come home, that she was not allowed to do that, and since then the communications have been completely cut off. >> leah, thank you very much. >> and president obama is now reportedly determined to close guantanamo bay and is looking at ways to bypass congress to get that done. that's according to "the wall street journal" newspaper. it reports the white house is drafting options that would allow it to override a congressional ban on bringing detainees to the united states. the feds say nearly 150 prisoners are left are left at gitmo. one of the first things president obama did when he arrived at the white house was sign an executive order to shut down gitmo within a year but the plans unraveled following a backlash from lawmakers. republican house speaker john boehner calls the latest reported move part of the obama's administration legacy of lawlessness but the white house denies "the wall street journal"
reporting. a national security council spokesperson says we do not know what news press reports are referring to when they say the administration is drafting options intended to override a congressional ban. end quote. chris wallace is the anker to or "fox news sunday." in that quote, the way i read it, they're not denying they're trying to do this. >> no. it's on a nondenial denial. i will say this, if -- and the headline really hit people here in washington hard today when they saw it, because if the president were to go ahead and do this, it would put to shame all of the other executive actions the president has taken, delaying the employer mandate on obamacare, things he has done on immigration or inconsidered on immigration. those are policy differences that there's a very sharply divided but fairly evenly divided feeling about. if the president were to go ahead over the express ons --
express objection of congress and -- he can find an authorization act but it is included in the ban and then say in into a signing statement, that fan infringes on his powers as commander in chief and he can transfer prisoners anywhere he wants. if he did that i think there would be a firestorm in this country. people just plain don't want the 75 or 80 guantanamo prisoners that would be transferred here, to the united states, to be here. there are 150 -- about 75 or 80 of them have been okay for transfer. they have to find places, other countries that will take them. even though you're still talking about roughly 70 that would be transferred in this country and that includes the ones los angeles-term, indefinite detentions because they don't think they can release them but don't have enough evidence to try them. also would include people like khalid shake mow -- sheikh mohammed, the master mind of the 9/11 attack. john boehner said this would not
only be a terrible mistake to do it and, as he said, quote, continue the president's legacy of lawlessness, but also is trying to make it an issue in the 2014 mid-term elections, and he said, every democratic candidate should be on the record, will you oppose or will you support the president if he tries to do this by executive order? so, it's another attempt to make a national security issue for the mid-terms. >> can we talk about timing for a second? i mean, guess psychologically people may wonder why he's doing this now? we're at war with more people we might want to talk to. >> that's right. there's another piece of timing which is is that it's the weeks before the mid-terms. clearly this was not a planned leak as you saw by the pushback if not a denial by the national security council. but it does raise the question, even after the mid-terms, if you do pick up more offer these people -- one of the concerns has been because the president doesn't want to put people in guantanamo, that we end up
killing them through drone strikes rather than detaining them and getting the intelligence that we could get from them, obviously if you're in a war that we hear is going to take years through the rest of this presidency with isis, i'm sure there are intelligence assets you'd like to be able to pick up and detain and question, and a lot of people think you want to do that at guantanamo, not at some prison in suburban im. >> 0 we questioned someone recently on a naval carrier, believe. we can't put everybody on boats. chris, what is on top for "fox news sunday"? >> who knows. we may talk about this. we'll talk about the latest on ebola this weekend. they'll strengthen the screening. a fascinating debate about same-sex marriage with the supreme court's nondecision, which in fact will expand same-sex marriage eventually to as many as ten more states, fascinating debate between ted olsen, the man whoa argued successfully for overturning the ban on same-sex marriage in
california. he'll debate tony perkins of the family research counselor should be fireworks there, and with three weeks until the mid-terms we'll break down the key races with carl rove and trippy, our space cowboys. >> we get to see more of you, which is always a great reason to tune in. >> oh, you smooth talker, you. >> have a great weekend. >> thank you, harris. >> absolutely. >> well, the teenager shot by the taliban for fighting for girls 0p education is now the youngest person ever to win the nobel peace prize, the committee giving the honor to malala yousafzai and another young woman of -- the gentleman on the right who rescued tens of thousands of children from slavery. ma la -- malala was 15 when she was shot. that was two years ago yesterday. british doctors happened to be visiting pakistan and flew her
to england where she recovered and still lives with her family today. malala was at school today when she got the news about her nobel prize. and, no, she did not leave early to celebrate. >> i went to the physics lessown, the english lesson and i considered it as a normal day. >> god bless her. she says she and her fellow winner have agreed to work together north just on children's education but to improve relations between india and pakistan. stocks have hit record highs and record lows this week, it's been a wild ride. a live update from the new york stock exchange on what this could mean for your retirement funds, coming up.

new over. there were concerns one or two passengers were exposed to ebola in west africa and possibly showing symptoms. it's reportedly a delta flight from new york city to vegas. delta says it was overreaction an passenger gave a flight attendant a note that he or she was not feeling well. delta reports emts met the plane at the gate and attended to the passenger. delta says, quote, there were no communicable disease event and passengers were let off the plane. this one tweet from a passenger was very light hearted and then serious. >> they were not happy after sitting there a long time. she starts out with, making a shirt. i went to vegas for the first time and all i got was a lousy ebola quarintine. she is on some company thing. says worse things than traveling with my boss so i may have ebola probably won't get me out of doing work. then as they sit there longer and longer, cdc will not make a
decision. near a miniquarintine, passengers are calm and frustrated. and then finally she says in all seriousness, i can't believe america does not have a proper system in place for an epidemic. this is ridiculous. >> more and more serious. >> we'll continue to follow that situation if there's any other new update to bring you. for now, they've been cleared. everything is moving on. your money now. anyone with a 401k or ira has a reason to be on edge because the dow has been on a roller coaster ride. this time last week closed up 208 points. on monday and tuesday this week, it erased all those gains, dropping nearly 300 points total, then gained back the losses on wednesday with the largest jump of the year before its biggest drop of the year just yesterday, and we were covering this as it was happening and were told that was on global economic concerns. let's look at the big board 0 toe see what is happening and
we're down, what, 82, which is considered where we have been, almost flat. it could be worse. so fox business network's nicole is live from the floor of the new york stock change. what's happening with the dow. >> you see the red and the green and the red and the green, it's been whip saw action today and all week long you. sauce to the traders biting nails, holding head and that's the kind of volatility and action we have been seeing all week long. that being said, we're down about a half a percent right now on the dow. we're down three weeks in a row, but not just the -- despite the fact we for the downside for me month of october, certainly, still higher on the s&p 500 for the year, tacks on the last year's gains. for your 401ks and irras and you're long, you're losing a bit, because nothing goes straight up or straight down. traders take this in stride. energy has been hit particularly
hard, as has semi conductor stocks such as intel. that's been the real pocket of weakness. this an historic week, biggest gains and losses of the week, oil at new lows and treasury yields, right knew, sitting at 2.30 percent. >> and i heard some good advice in there about being long on your investments and staying in there for the long haul. you mix it install and do so well. nicole, thank you. >> thank you, harris. >> where, oh, where, is lil' kim? kim jong-un. out of sight for more than a month. remember, we were watching to see if he would show up at this major event today him didn't. details next. the conference call.

for the first anytime three years lil' kim, as shep likes to call him, was a no show at a emergency political event in north korea. the country's 69th birthday. theysel greated without him. dancing, flowers, a ribbon. as we have been telling you, we haven't seen or heard from the dictator since early last month, and this is not the first public event he has missed, actually. more than a month ago observers noticed lil' kim had been walking with a limp. there's talk he may have developed arthritis-diabetes, or some illness, and a north korean defector say his little sister may actually be running the country, jonathan hunt is live. so do we have any idea where he really might be? >> reporter: no frankly. no one outside north korea is certain, and probably very few inside the country have any real idea where kim jong-un is. u.s. officials say they do not believe there has been a coup. and the best bet that he is
suffering from some sort of sickness. july and august we saw him limping and a state tv documentary mentioned health issues while breathlessly describing kim's heroic efforts on behalf of the country, listen. that narration saying in part, that kim jong-un is lighting the path for the people like the flicker of a flame despite suffering discomfort. must have been significant for him not to show up for these anniversary events. that creates the opportunities for a significant power struggle. >> jonathan, there are some differing opinions how much this matters for u.s. interests who is in control of north korea.
>> reporter: it matters because north korea is obviously a nuclear armed nation and is developing longer and longer range missiles. so that is one concern, knowing who exactly is in control of those missiles. then there's the tension on the north korean peninsula. we saw it today. activists in the south released balloons and as a result north korea's set off antiaircraft fire. so it's a tense time. >> thank you, jonathan. we'll be right back on the deck. that's right. it's just that i'm worried about you know "hidden things..." ok, why's that? no hidden fees, from the bank where no branches equals great rates.

know, "anchors aweigh." let's look at the dow. been a rough work. charles payne often tells us go long on your investments and you might not feel this as much. >> 25 days until mid-terms kick off and will 40 painful seconds change the race on its face? welcome everybody, i am charles payne, in for neil cavuto. this is "your world." my kentucky democratic senate candidate getting a lot of attention. >> did you vote for president obama in 2008 and 2012? >> this election isn't about the president. it's about making sure we put kentuckians back to work. >> did you vote for him? >> i was actually a delegate for hillary clinton and i think that kentuckians know i'm a clinton democrat through and through. i respect t
