8:00 am
to move olives and wine. that is very cool. wow. we leave you with that. wonderful diving footage. thanks for being here everybody. we'll see you back here tomorrow. jon: exactly one week away now from the crucial midterm elections. republican confidence is growing that they can take over the u.s. senate but with incumbents in both parties facing very close races nothing at all is certain. have you heard that before? welcome to "happening now." i'm jon scott. shannon: i'm shannon bream in for jenna lee. "real clear politics" lists nine senate races too close to call as well as 23 house contests and 11 governorships but a key issue in all of this, voter anger. according to a new cnn-orc poll, 30% of the americans are quote, very angry about the direction of the country. 38% are somewhat angry while 31
8:01 am
expressed no longer at all which matches mood pretty much back in 2010 when republicans took back control of the house. meantime, president obama is heading to wisconsin today, kicking off a week-long six-state campaign swing, attending a rally in milwaukee for mary burke in her battle to unseat governor cot walker. as the white house brushes off suggestions the president could be doing more to help democrats on the campaign trail. >> those who are interested in seeing the president campaigning will have apple -- ample opportunity to do over the course of the next week. >> you know what i'm saying. he has not been out on the campaign trail with a single senate candidate yet. jon: ellison barber, "washington free beacon." 38% of the country angry at the direction. how about you? >> i feel i should be. that is kind of the thing to do but that shows you what a big problem democrats have in this election cycle. they are trying to combat the general sense where a lot of people incredibly frustrated with the government and administration in particular and
8:02 am
as well as congress with the whole. jon: with the isis thing going on and ebola thing going on there doesn't seem to be is somebody in washington has a real grasp on some of the really scary problems out there. >> there is a lot of frustration. we've seen that for a while. why you saw the big tea party wave in 2012. there is growing anti-establishment, anti-washington sentiment across the country. i don't think that has changed. what we've seen with president obama, his approval rating has worsened and particularly bad in states where you do have some of the biggest and most vulnerable democratic incumbents running for senate this election. jon: the president is way underwater on his popularity ratings. people are very unhappy with the direction of the country. if that is the case, there should be a blowout for republicans and we talked about the fact at least nine senate races are still too close to call and, you know even in the governorships and so forth. it is not a walkway for republicans. why? >> republicans are well-positioned. there will be a lost races close
8:03 am
and stay close. the reason why i think it is going to vary state to state, you look kay hag began was seen as most vulnerable democrat and easy flip and that turned out not to be case for republicans but on the other hand they have three races expect he had to go red, west virginia, montana, arkansas. alaska, arkansas, louisiana we name up to the nine different races where they have a very good chance. you're seeing it is still incredibly close. jon: you could also name states like kansas and georgia which were not expected to be pickups for the democrats and democrats are feeling possibly, well, in kansas it is an independent but, democrats are feeling pretty good about their chances? >> they are. those are the same thing in other races that they're still very close. i think kansas is a race it will likely stay republican just because you look somewhere like kansas it is such a red state. they haven't sent a democrat to the senate since 1930s.
8:04 am
even though orman is independent doing really well a month or so ago, being up 10 points, you look at polls now, really have closed that gap. i think "real clear politics" have him at .6 above. i think republicans are better positioned to keep. georgia is very interesting because that is incredibly close race. when i talk to people who work in georgia politics that is race they're worried about perdue keeping that seat. jon: interesting. perhaps the best signal of all that this looks like is it could be the year republicans take senate is the "politico" article yesterday how folks at white house are starting to imagine and starting to plan for the final two years of an obama administration with a republican, completely republican legislature. >> right. i think it is likely. i think most people think it is likely republicans will be able to take control of the senate. the question how will they get there. there are a bunch of races so close. they're not entirely sure if they wick up one here and lose georgia and pick up somewhere
8:05 am
like iowa. the expectation it will be close. we might not know for sure but not know until after the election. we could see runoff in louisiana and georgia. that is one most people think republicans will take. jon: we another week to watch it. it will be a fascinating week. ellison barber from the "washington free beacon." thanks you. >> bet. >> the battle for key senate state will go down to the wire in new hampshire. but republican challenger scott frown is gaining ground in his quest to unseat democrat jeanne shaheen. carl cameron is live in new hampshire with more. carl? >> reporter: incumbency can be a disadvantage. in new hampshire, one of the blue states where democratic incumbents are very vulnerable, jeanne shaheen the freshman is having tough time. scott brown, former senator from massachusetts. you remember he won the special election for ted kennedy's seat back in 2010 is going at her at hard, released his closing argument advertisement forethe final seven-day sprint.
8:06 am
in it he makes the case jeanne shaheen as republicans made about democrats all over the country is too closely wedded to president obama and his agenda and that is bad for the country. watch. >> we're dealing with new threats to our way of life on issue after issue, senator shaheen continues to vote with president obama 99% of the time. she promised to be independent but washington changed her. >> reporter: and it has taken a bit of a bite. this race has closed to 2.2% in the, 2 points in the "real clear politics" average of recent polls. one day it is one candidate up by another point or two. all within the margin of error. jeanne shaheen released so-called closing advertisement, final arguments of this campaign. in her case she is going back to original theme. that scott brown, who was born in new hampshire, spent most of his life in massachusetts is out-of-stater, a carpetbagger, can't possibly be elected u.s. senator from new hampshire. watch.
8:07 am
>> i never backed down from a fight for the people of new hampshire. i don't work for the big oil companies or the big banks. i work for you. getting the job done for new hampshire. i'm jeanne shaheen. i approved this message. i didn't just move here. i've been here, fighting for you. i would be honored to have your vote. >> reporter: and despite having been in massachusetts, he was born in new hampshire. and jeanne shaheen's case, she has been politician for 30 years but she was born in missouri. these types of personal attacks have been batted back and forth for entire race. they talked about ebola, syria, foreign policy and security challenges, domestic and economic and job challenges. yet polls are tied in this state. undecideds don't make up their minds until the very last minute. no matter what the polls say, people go in there on tuesday a week from today, making up their minds. that means this state could be one that would surprise everybody, whether you're a republican or democrat, have a favorite in this race, the campaigns acknowledge they will not be sure what happens both
8:08 am
sides. shannon. shannon: carl, good to see you out there. thank you. jon: president obama will not be stopping in new hampshire or any other state where vulnerable senate democrats are campaigning for the, for the office. he is hitting the campaign trail today, heading off to milwaukee, wisconsin, the first stop on a six-state tour. wendell goler live at the white house to explain what the president is doing. wendell? >> reporter: well, jon, they are six states in some pretty friendly areas within those states. republican national committee says the president's missteps and low approval ratings have democrats on defense embracing for defeat but the campaign is carefully planning the president's travel. the milwaukee ward he is speaking in today, gave him 99% of its vote in 2012. he will aim to boost turnout for would-be governor mary burke. in addition to the wisconsin, visiting maine, rhode island, michigan, pennsylvania, connecticut between today and saturday. like all presidents with low
8:09 am
approval ratings he is staying away from states where he is toxic like louisiana, where mary landrieu's opponent, bill cassidy is doing all he can to run against the president. >> one obama in washington is enough but louisiana has two because mary landrieu supports barack obama 97% of the time. she voted for obamacare and still supports it. >> reporter: the president's given mixed signals how much influence he has in congressional races. he says democrats, even some who tried to distance themselves from him still support his policies. his spokesman says mr. obama will be at least partly responsible, no matter which way the senate goes. >> what i feel confident in predict in advance is that the president will be at least get some credit if democrats hold on to majority in the senate and he will get more than his fair share of the blame if they don't. >> reporter: one thing the president has been doing for democrats is raising money. he raised a ton of it. meanwhile democrats have bill
8:10 am
and hillary clinton to campaign in states where mr. obama sun popular like louisiana and kentucky. hillary clinton will be in both states on saturday. jon? jon: interesting. wendell goler, at the white house. wendell, thank you. keep it right here on election night. fair and balanced coverage of the midterm elections. bret baier and megyn kelly will be our anchors. you will want to watch. >> the second of two dallas nurses treated for ebola is about to be released in couple hours. emory university hospital in atlanta says amber vinson is free of the virus. as nurse kaci hickox heads home to maine after mandatory quarantine in new jersey. she is apparently considering legal action. in new york city, five-year-old boy who became ill afterer a trp to west africa tested negative for ebola. dr. craig spencer, the new york physician who volunteered to treat ebola patients in africa is in more serious phase of his illness. rick leventhal is live in bellevue hospital in manhattan
8:11 am
to tell us more. >> reporter: good morning, shannon. dr. craig spencer is now only ebola patient being treated in america. he is still in isolation in bellevue hospital. at last report he was serious but stable. we asked the hospital for update on his condition. we expect one this afternoon. meanwhile cdc released new guidelines how to handle possible ebola patients moving forward but several states decided the new rules are not tough enough. the new cdc standards crafted with help of president obama over the weekend, require people with contact with ebola patients to get daily checkups and phone call from local public health official. some will be asked to avoid public transportation and large gatherings but wouldn't automatically be confined to their homes unless they're considered high-risk like having been stuck with a needle. but governors of new york, new jersey, illinois, georgia, florida, maryland and virginia and connecticut released tougher standards for travelers from west africa which direct exposure to ebola patients. even those without symptoms would be subject to strict
8:12 am
21-day quarantines at home or in a facility. >> what the people of this country want is for us to protect first and foremost the public safety and public health of our citizens. that is exactly what we're doing in new jersey and we're proud to take the lead on it. >> reporter: well the cdc says its rules are based on science and it is concerned that the state's policy may discourage health care workers from battling ebola on the front lines in west africa, shannon? shannon: rick, thank you so. we'll keep an eye on that case. jon? jon: new developments to bring you in the manhunt for eric frein, the suspect in that deadly police ambush who has been on the run for more than a month. authorities are enlisting high-tech help to try to get him. plus, what caused a series of commuter train crashes in the northeast? the ntsb now out with its findings. we're live with that update. we want to hear from you, with one week to go before the midterms do you think republicans will take control of the senate? our live chat is up and running.

8:16 am
jon: right now new information on crime stories we're keeping an eye on. new warning about a suspect wanted in a national crime spree with police saying gregory lewis is armed and dangerous and could head back to massachusetts where he cut off his gps bracelet six weeks ago. he is linked to at least six sexual assaults across several states. to pennsylvania where police searching for eric frein, the suspect in the deadly ambush on a police barracks are getting some high-tech help now. a balloon is serving as eye in the sky as police search for frein in the woods. he has been on the run more than a month now. the jury getting ready to decide the dui manslaughter case against polo mogul john goodman. he was convicted at his trial back in 2012 but that verdict was thrown out because of juror
8:17 am
misconduct. >> the fight against isis for control of kobani entering a new phase. kurdish fighters from iraq reportedly ready to head across the border to help today or tomorrow. meanwhile isis releasing another video on twitter. this one features british captive john cantley, reporting on terrorist side of the conflict. major general robert scales retired from the u.s. army and fox news analyst. good to see you today. >> good to see. >> let's talk about kobani. i know you think aside physically maintaining control there is big psychological impact of who has control over the territory as well. >> it is very important historical point. sometimes in the evolution of a military campaign a military objective becomes more important for its symbolic nature rather than its military importance. you think of caisson, and phu, maybe stalingrad in world war ii
8:18 am
or verdun in world war i. the importance of kobani, first of all completely in the news. people from all the networks standing on a hillside watching every bomb drop. on the other side, isis is pumping out social media, that shows street fighting, house house-to-house fighting where they're being victorious. all of sudden, rather isolated and strategically unimportant place called kobani has turned into sort of a global, the global spotlight is turned on it and both side believe they can't lose the city. shannon: there is plenty of as you said, misinformation spread out there and because we're in a different world for this conflict with social media and people up loading their own videos and putting out information is very difficult to either confirm or deny with people there on the ground how has that changed the way that we fight these kinds of battles? >> oh, it's huge. there are two points at play here. first of all, both sides have learned that american air power
8:19 am
decreases in its effectiveness as the insurgent force gets inside of the city. so that makes two things important there. number one, it is important for the, for the allied airstrikes to hit the logistics areas and assembly areas before the force crowds into a city. from the other side obviously it is important to disperse, break apart, get away from tanks and artillery pieces and trucks and fight this battle basically one-on-one, street-to-street, door-to-door. what that does to the evolution of the battle, it slows isis down as we've seen but doesn't necessarily mean isis is going to lose. shannon: i know that we talked a lot about the broader picture, about so-called lone wolves. people that don't need to be directly connected with these groups to carry out things beneficial to whatever the terror group is but i know you say we may need to think about that in different way, may need new terminology as well? >> absolutely.
8:20 am
lenin in his writings called these people useful idiots. you can no longer think of them as lone wolves no more than communist infiltrators after world war ii were considered loan wolves. they weren't. it is part of a network. what makes the network so much more insidious is social media, twitter. all of sudden you have isolated young men and women in the united states and in europe and in australia, suddenly become self-radicalized but they become self-radicalized according to an ideology that belongs to isis and more successful isis becomes, the more of a magnet it becomes, and more insidious and dangerous these so-called loan wolves become. all of sudden they have moral justification for doing what they do. shannon: seems like those that are struggling. they don't have economic prospects. they're unemployed and living hand to mouth at best. this can be appealing to them i would think to be caught up in something with bigger or grander mission? >> but it has been that way
8:21 am
through time. whether they are anarchists or communists, you name the radical movement and there is always people on the margins who are willing to do the bloody bidding of those in charge. none of that changes. what has changed here though is the global network and the fact that they're no longer lone wolves in the sense they're part of a grander network a bidding of their masters, people who are leading this global jihad under the name of isis. so they're a bit more dangerous now than they were say 50, 70, or 80 years ago. shannon: general scales, always good to hear from you. thank you, sir. >> thank you, shannon. jon: right now a sad event taking place in canada. these are the funeral procession, funeral procession is underway for corporal nathan cirillo, the guard, the ceremonial guard at the war memorial in canada who was gunned down last week by that
8:22 am
madman, absolutely unarmed, simply shot to death while standing there at his ceremonial post. leaves behind a wife and young son. there are some of the royal canadian mounted police. he is to be buried today. big day? ah, the usual. moved some new cars. hauled a bunch of steel. kept the supermarket shelves stocked. made sure everyone got their latest gadgets. what's up for the next shift? ah, nothing much. just keeping the lights on. (laugh) nice. doing the big things that move an economy. see you tomorrow, mac. see you tomorrow, sam. just another day at norfolk southern. i have $40,ney do you have in your pocket right now? $21. could something that small make an impact on something as big as your retirement? i don't think so. well if you start putting that towards your retirement every week and let it grow over time, for twenty to thirty years, that retirement challenge

8:27 am
executive order to grant green cards to millions of illegals. he writes and we're quoting here, failure to uphold public charge law, abuse of asylum procedures, visas for health risks the taxpayers are being fleeced and public safety is being endangered on a daily basis and he adds that the situation is about to get exponentially worries and more dangerous. his warning comes after it was revealed just last week that the department of homeland security put out a bid to print 34 million new green cards over the next five years. last week white house press secretary josh earnest said it was, quote, crazy to link this printing order to any potential executive action by the president. >> what i would caution you, against doing, is making assumptions about what will be in those announcements, based on the procurement practices of the department of homeland security. >> reporter: whether the printing is linked to any executive order or not, republican candidates are trying to use it to full advantage.
8:28 am
senator pat roberts, facing tough re-election in battle in kansas writes, news the obama administration is secretly preparing to grant amnesty to millions of illegals in this election is an outrage. i will do everything in my power to stop it. illegal immigration fears were heightened in recent weeks by ebola threat and many terrorism threats coming from isis. jenna, back to you. shannon: doug, thank you very much. >> all right, so now imagine this. you have got yourself a house in paradise and all of a sudden a river of fire is heading for your neighborhood. what homeowners in the path of this molten lava are doing in the face of, what looks like impending disaster.

william la jeunesse is following this story. he is live in los angeles. william? >> reporter: well, jon, the residents are powerless. the lava is like water. it goes previous where it wants, affected only by slope and topography albeit slower. this lava crossed the fence line of the first home a few hours ago moving six miles an hour. it could destroy the home unless bulldozers used to create a berm disrupts the flow. kilauea is most active volcano erupting off and on since 1983 this began after june eruption open ad east vent on the volcano which spews million feet of lava every day. this is 13-mile long river of rock whose front edge is half as wide as football field. no mandatory evacuation but that could change as the sunrises shortly in hawaii.

8:43 am
penalty trial for james holmes for a fifth time. jury selection was set to begin next month but the defense asked for more time to review the sanity evaluation of their client. the judge is giving them until january 20th. jury selection expected to take months with testimony beginning sometime next summer. that would be three years after holmes is alleged to have opened fire at the midnight showing of the dark night rises. the shooting rampage killed 12 people, wounded 70 others. shannon: we are waiting comments from an ebola survivor, amber vinson, one of two nurses infected while treating liberian citizen thomas eric duncan at texas hospital. he later died. vinson was diagnosed with the killer virus less than two weeks ago and now she is getting out of the hospital as the battle heats up over quarantining other medical professionals coming in contact with other ebola patients. dr. kevin campbell, author of a brand new book out today, women
8:44 am
and cardiovascular disease, addressing disparity in care. great new book. he joins us to talk about several medical topics. good to see you. >> good to see you. shannon: help me understand this because the minute you hear somebody tested positive for ebola the general among us non-doctors is terrifying thought. the body doesn't have good defenses to fight it. doesn't respond the way it does to other things. yet within couple weeks we're hearing misdemeanor cases getting medical care here in the u.s. are able to rebound. somehow their bodies do that. how does it work? >> here in the u.s. we have some more resources and so many more treatment options. we have a lot of experimental therapies being used, and, when we have blood from survivors of ebola as we've seen, these transfusions give us what is called passive immunity. we have antibodies from someone who survived and help the person fight the disease. shannon: that is fascinating to me. i think about dr. kent brantly, who has been one of those, talk about what a gift to be able to save other people when he was so close to death himself.
8:45 am
explain to me the antibodies idea. my understanding our bodies have really hard time forming anything that would fight ebola. in the survivors what is there that helps the next person? >> great question. so we have these antibodies in the survivor's blood because they are made bense that virus and helped the body attack that virus and destroy it. when you're exposed to virus it take as little while to develop your own. if we passively give you blood that has the antibodies it can help the body buy time to mount a defense. i think that is one of the critical parts here. the world health organization will be studying this very, very carefully. shannon: wonderful way for somebody to survive to give a gift of life to someone else. from here we understand that ebola really ravages the body. we think about dr. spencer here in new york who is in a worse place than he was when he first went into the hospital. it wasn't unexpected. is there sort of an arc we see with typical ebola patients the way it runs its way through the system? >> so you do tend to get sicker before you get better.

with ebola, multiple organ systems become affected. the blood pressure drops. you can have bleeding. you can affect liver and kidneys and failure of multiple symptoms. the key to ebola treatment not only experimental treatments support the patient in icu setting with wonderful care from wonderful nurses and doctors and that's what we're able to provide here in the u.s. and it's a real blessing. >> it is absolutely. we want to talk about another interesting topic to me. new hope on the horizon for hearts awaiting heart transplants at surgeons successfully implanned a so-called dead heart. it stopped beating and revived in a machine known as heart in a box. that sounds like a joke but it is real thing. how does this work? >> it is really amazing technology. researchers in the u.s. were working on something similar but this came out of australia. typically when we harvest organs for transplant we take organs out deceased and put them in ice and they can become damaged from
8:47 am
oxygen deprivation. with the heart in a box, put the organ in special preservative and put it in a box with preservative that provides nutrients and oxygen and limits damage to the heart before transplant. it is revolutionary. shannon: sounds like something amazing. people by the thousands are waiting for hearts, kidneys, all kinds of things. how may this impact the field? >> it may make organs more available. there are two things out there right now. there is 3d printing of organs that will help us in the next 10 years provide more organs. i think this is real good technology that we have to continue to evaluate, make sure survival rates are the same as with regular hearts and i think it could allow people to give the gift of life to more. shannon: because it sound like for now the heart would only come from a patient who maybe is brain-dead but their heart is still beating and still functioning. in this case there was a lapse of time. >> exactly and that's the huge difference and i think whenever an organ no longer beats,
8:48 am
particularly the heartbeat you have starving tissue and the tissue becomes dead and it is difficult to revive the tissue. if we're able to use the preservatives we can save the heart and save a life and i think this is really neat stuff. >> i want to ask you about your book. you say women don't pay as much attention as they should or maybe medical providers don't to heart issues in women. why is that? how can we close the gap? >> in general women are undertreated and underserved with respect to heart disease. more women than men die every year from heart disease. what we really need to do is help empower women to take control of their own heart health. no the risk factors. find a health care provider who will listen to you and treat you. advocate for yourself, your mom, your daughters and your friends. shannon: we hear so much attention. october being breast cancer awareness month. that is something that gets a lot of headlines and see survivors speak out and mourn those who are lost. always a focus this time of year but you say heart disease and
8:49 am
heart issues can be a much bigger problem for women and widespread? >> absolutely. do you know heart disease kills more women than all types of cancer survived. breast cancer awareness is so important but i also use october to reflect on heart disease. my daughter has insulin-dependent diabetes and she will have heart disease unless we advocate for women and she was the inspiration for this book no doubt. shannon: great to have a dad looking out for her as well. great book, doctor. >> thanks for having me. jon: now canceled reality series here comes money boo-boo, what child protective services is now threatening to do. plus a massive search for a father who vanished from the stands at a denver broncos game. what his son is saying about might have happened to his dad and how you might be able to help. >> we're looking everywhere, parking lots, in the trees,
