12:01 pm
good monday afternoon to you. our reporting begins with word that your doctor's advice for decades and decades maive all wrong all along. a brand new study has found that popping an aspirin every day may do harm than good for healthy people. going back to the 1970s, doctors have said low doses of aspirin every day could help prevent heart attacks and strokes and other cardiovascular issues as you age. the american heart association saying adults over 70 who do not have any previous heart issues, as well as adults who have increased risk of bleeding, should not take a low dose aspirin. here's why. under normal circumstances, your body is able to stop minor bleeding. plateletts and proteins clot at the site of a wound, it plugs the opening with a that with
12:02 pm
aspirin in your bloodstream, those platelets and proteins don't stick together well, making it harder to close the opening and stop the bleeding. aspirin interferes with your own body's ability to clot blood, which is why doctors recommend taking an aspirin at the first sign of a heart attack. it may help clear a blood clot. that recommendation does remain. but this study warns that not everybody should stop taking their daily aspirin. so how do you sort out the confusion? jonathan serrie there to help with that. >> reporter: for people who do have heart disease, continuing to take that small daily dose of aspirin can reduce your chances of suffering a second heart attack or clot related stroke. but in earlier years, doctors had been hoping that aspirin could also be used as preventive medicine for older adults with no history of heart disease.
12:03 pm
the study including one in the new england journal of medicine found aspirin did not extend life or ward off disability for this group and, in fact, increased their risk of suffering a major hemorrhage as o poedz to those taking a placebo. chief of cardiology at st. joseph's hospital explains its findings. >> there are no free lunches with any drug that you take, even over the counter drugs. aspirin always has been around for a long long time as a medicine, and people take it without a prescription. but the bleeding risk is there and needs to be considered. >> reporter: so the american college of cardiology and american heart association have released new guidelines saying aspirin should be limited to people at the highest risk of cardiovascular disease and a very low risk of bleeding. shep? >> shepard: what's the alternative, jonathan, to aspirin? >> reporter: the authors of
12:04 pm
these new guidelines point out more than 80% of cardiovascular events are preventible through lifestyle changes. so for seniors with no prior heart disease, they recommend that regular exercise and healthy diet could reduce their risk. for those who already suffer from cardiovascular disease, aspirin is still believed to significantly relieve a risk of heart at act or stroke and can be life saving treatment during a suspected heart attack. aspirin maker bayer issued a statement saying, no one should start, stop or modify an aspirin regimen without first speaking with their health care provider. the updated guidelines do not change the recommendation of aspirin in secondary prevention and demonstrate there's still a role for aspirin in primary prevention. and the maker of st. joseph low dose aspirin issued a similar statement urging consumers to consult their doctor before beginning or altering any aspirin regimen.
12:05 pm
shep? >> shepard: jonathan serrie live from atlanta. new backlash from the world's largest airplane maker a week after a boeing 737 max crash and killed everybody on board. there's word that faa managers delegated safety inspection of boeing planes to boeing. that's according to the reporting of the "seattle times." and "the wall street journal" reports transportation officials are looking into boeing's development of the 737. the parent company of the journal and the parent company of fox news share common ownership. the journal reports the transportation department's investigation began after one of the planes operated by lyon air crashed in october. now aviation officials say they see clear similarities between that incident and this month's ethiopian airlines crash. fox business network susan lee is here now. >> there are a lot of questions as to how the 737 max was safe
12:06 pm
to fly. a journal reporting a grand jury in dc issued an subpoena to one employee and they're looking for the paper trail. talking about e-mail messages, correspondence. the subpoena was issued the day after the ethiopia air crash. the department of justice and department of transportation concurred investigations while looking at the certification process that involved the faa and boeing. i should point out that it's not unusual for the justice department to look into safety of products made by companies like the takata air bag, but it is unusual for the department of justice to be probing during an accident investigation and also basically during the fact that they're looking at the approval process during the faa body and also the plane maker itself. this comes on top of "the seattle times" report over the weekend. explosive. they're talking about the power
12:07 pm
boeing itself has over the certification of this plane. right? apparently, you know, even employees and engineers, they certified software in those 737 maxes which may be at the heart of these two crashes. >> shepard: tell us how this is affecting boeing's business. >> they are 340 of these boeing 737's around the sky. over 40 airlines fly this plane. now that it's grounded, we had boeing losing $20 billion in market share and market cap just last week. we're concerned this is going to cost boeing $100 million for, a, these planes being grounded. also if the certification and approval process looks into its most profitable airplane, the 737, what does that mean for boeing in the future? >> shepard: we don't know yet. susan, thank you. a fox urgent now. dutch police say they have now arrested a suspect after a gun man opened fire on a tram, killing at least three people
12:08 pm
and wounding five others. the mass shooting happened in the central netherlands city at a busy intersection in the middle of a residential neighborhood. according to local reporting, it is a place where any kind of shooting is extremely uncommon. earlier today investigators released this image of the suspect. they say he's a 37-year-old man born in turkey. heavily armed counter terrorism police kwraouused a police dog. it is too early to say whether this was an act of terror but there are local reports that the shooter may have been targeting a particular woman and shot people who tried to intervene. the suspect's father who lives in turkey told turkish reporters that he hasn't spoken with his son in 11 years and that, quoting now, if he did it, he should pay the penalty. according to a turkish news agency, the suspects relatives believe he shot at somebody

12:14 pm
unusual about the buyer. over the weekend, there were vigils to honor the lives lost. hundreds of people getting up to perform a passionate dance. the accused shooter appeared in court on saturday. the judge ordered his face blurred. the suspect reportedly planning to represent himself. trace gallagher reporting live in our west coast news hub. the prime minister called for an investigation into what led up to this. >> reporter: that's right, shep. they plan to examine the action of new zealand's intelligence agencies. she's not pointing fingers because the investigation is now in the early stages. the pm wants to know if the gun man's history of white nationalism or social media footprint might have offered clues that were missed or ignored altogether. watch. >> over the last nine months in particular our agencies had been
12:15 pm
looking specifically because of globally the rise in some of these groups. they had been looking specifically at those areas. >> reporter: yeah. you have to remember new zealand has a population of about 4.5 million but only averages 30 to 35 murders a year. new zealand's coalition government apparently has agreed, at least in theory, to implement much tougher gun laws and either ban or severely restrict military style semiautomatic weapons. the shooter used the ar-15 semiautomatic, same gun that was used in the parkland florida shooting and sandy hook connecticut. in new zealand, you do need a gun lie srepbs but it's very rare to be denied. last year of the 43,500 applications 99.6 opinion were approved. >> shepard: what are we learning about the victims? >> reporter: we know 31 victims remain hospitalized today
12:16 pm
including a 4-year-old girl. she is still in critical condition. the youngest victim was a 3-year-old boy who was praying with his father and older brother. they got separated. both the father and brother did survive. father and his daughter were among those who were killed. there have been numerous candle light vigils. the massive investigation hauls led to delays in returning victims' bodies to their family. police are trying to collect all the evidence, but they also realize muslim customs require bodies to be buried within 24 hours and they are trying to be respectful to those families. more than 250 christchurch police officers are working this case. the biggest investigation ever. they have just conducted another raid at a local home looking for more evidence. shep? >> shepard: trace gallagher live for us, thank you. scientists may have identified jack the ripper. the serial killer murdered five

12:23 pm
the president also didn't like what the head of the union local in ohio david green had to say when asked on fox if union workers were going to stick with the president in next year's election. green said the gm closing but losing a kmart distribution center and hospital closed as well. listen here. >> you know, i think that's really just a matter of opinion. some folks i know have switched gears, right, and thought when he came here and said all these great things that they were on board with that. people are starting to wake up. part of it's ego, too. if that's your guy, you're gonna stick with him. >> reporter: president then lashed out green on twitter. also lashed out against fox news which had him on. then took on gm and the union for waiting until october to decide the final status of the lor lordstown plants. the president tweeted they are going to start talks in september, october. he said why wait.
12:24 pm
lordstown ohio, sell the company. car companies are all coming back to the u.s., so is everyone else. we now have the best economy in the world. get that big beautiful plant in ohio open now. bring jobs home. ohio's a huge state for the president in the 2020 election year. if he goes into that campaign, it could give a democratic challenger an opening. kelly anne conway expressing an urgency to do something to save jobs. listen here. >> he wants them to come to the table before that. the urgency the president feels is that he wants the auto companies to continue to stay here and return here because he knows that that is a bedrock part of the u.s. economy and continues to be. so when you tell a business manon politician we're gonna meet seven months from now, hi thinks the meeting should happen
12:25 pm
sometime faster. >> reporter: the president is going to ohio, to lima, a plant that produces the abrams tank. while that's defense planning, that is still where autoworkers are employed. the lordstown plant didn't have anything to do with the tariffs the president is considering. the chevy cruz wasn't the most popular car they produced. this idea of looming tariffs is giving heart burn to people in the automotive industry. the president was given a report what's called a section 232 assessment as to whether imported cars and car parts represent national security risk to the united states. he's about a month into the 90 day window to consider whether or not to impose a tariff of some 25%. there are a lot of people worried that the president will do that. would increase the price of cars being sold in the united states and increase the price of some domestic cars, too because a lot of them use foreign car parts.
12:26 pm
center for automotive research did a study that it will fall between 500,000 and 2 million vehicles as a result of the tariffs or quotas. a 6.4 billion to $62 billion decline in gross domestic product. there's a wide range there. they don't know exactly what would happen. the president has 60 days to determine what to do. >> shepard: thank you. a spokesman for beto o'rourke said his campaign raised $6.1 million in its first day. more than any other democratic contender. bernie sanders came closest with just less than 6 million. o'rourke's campaign said the money came from online donors in all 50 states without a dime from corporations or political action committees. mike emanuel reporting, he's live in washington for us. hi, mike. >> reporter: yeah. been a bit of a bumpy rollout

for beto o'rourke. he said his wife's been raising their three children sometimes with my help. that led to this apology in iow iowa. >> i'll be much more thoughtful going forward in the way that i talk about our marriage and also the way in which i acknowledge the truth of the criticisms that i have enjoyed white privilege. absolutely, undeniable. >> reporter: o'rourke all benefitted from some free media in the form of the cover of vanity fair magazine. the magazine quoted him as saying, quote, i'm just born to do this. some criticize him for saying that he feel likes he's entitled to the presidency. o'rourke ran for the president in texas. stakes are much higher in the white house. >> shepard: he and gillibrand in michigan. >> shepard: they lost michigan by a little more than 10,000
12:28 pm
votes. those 16 votes went in president trump's column. it's clear democrats want to make sure it goes blue in 2020 so now gillibrand and o'rourke are making a very early visit to michigan. >> all that matters now at this defining moment of truth is that we are all american, we are all human beings and we are going to treat one another accordingly and do the great work before us. that's why i'm running, to serve you as the next president of the united states. >> reporter: president obama won michigan easily in 2012 and if democrats can take back the industrial midwest that would make it much more difficult for president trump to win a second term. >> shepard: mike emanuel reporting from washington, thank you. there's record the saudi crown prince had people kidnapping and torturing his critics long before the killing of the washington post columnist jamal khashoggi. now the prince reportedly losing some of his power in the kingdom. we'll speak with an expert on

go to newdayusa.com or call 1-800-420-9803 >> shepard: we're monitoring a couple new reports about the crown prince of saudi arabia. the ruler suspected of ordering the murder of the washington kol post columnist. according to the guardian the saudi king had taken away some of his son's financial responsibilities. and he has missed some very high profile diplomatic meetings. we're also getting word, and this is new, that the saudi prince authorized a secret program to silence his critics, a program that included capturing, kidnapping and torture. that's according to the reports of "the new york times" citing american officials who read classified intelligence reports about the program. "the times" reports the crackdown began more than a year before khashoggi's murder.
12:34 pm
in october, he went to the saudi consulate in turkey and never came out. intelligence officials say saudi agents killed khashoggi's and hacked up his body with a saw. the authorities deny the saudi prince authorized the killing. they say the claim of mistreating prisoners they cake very seriously. let's bring in simon henderson a fellow at the washington institute who's an expert on the saudi royal family and gulf politics. thank you for being here. what more do we know about this program, how long it's been going on and the degree to which salman is in charge of it? >> all very good questions. we sort of assume there was a program such as this to render back to the kingdom, dissidents or a term which are used rather widely, women activists, people
12:35 pm
who have tweeted and things like this. we assumed it was in place anyway. but the new york times report gives additional detail of this. is this part of mbs responsibility? mbs being the saudi crown prince? it almost certainly is. but the moment we have what i would call a polite fiction that perhaps the crown prince didn't actually know khashoggi was going to be murdered. but if there's a team that's been capturing these people and then bringing them back, imprisoning them, even torturing them, the idea that the team would do something without the permission of the saudi crown prince get even harder to believe. and so, frankly, i think "the new york times" report today is damning evidence. >> shepard: historically, the
12:36 pm
united states has had a complicated relationship with the saudi, largely because of oil. but usually when something dramatic and unseemly and as horrific as this happens, the united states takes a stand and the saudis begin, at least, to clean up their house. the united states has not done that now, obviously. what would be a good tack for the united states to take here? >> i think the problem is at the moment that despite the concern of congress of what saudi arabia has been doing, not only the murder of jamal khashoggi but the war in yemen, the white house has been wholly supportive and, dare i say, forgiving of bin salman. the white house has said that they're working with the saudi crown prince to make sure essentially that these sort of
12:37 pm
things don't happen in the future. i think the crown prince thinks he's been given a free ride and if he can get away without condemnation by the white house, he can ignore congress. >> shepard: is there something the u.n. or another world body can do in the face of what's clearly a cold blooded murder? >> the u.n. only adds to the condemnation. it's not a crucial player in its context. and the problem here is, the crown prince is essentially running saudi arabia on his own despite these latest reports to the contrary. the king has essentially handed over complete authority to the crown prince. the king's an old man and in poor health and no longer wants to have that responsibility or, frankly, is no longer capable of
12:38 pm
taking that responsibility. and so we keep in this dreadful situation that the crown prince hears condemnation, but decides to ignore it. >> shepard: simon henderson, sir, good of you. thank you. u.s. backed forces fighting isis in syria say they are facing difficulties as they battle to take the terror group's last strong hold. they say their progress in eastern syria is now slowing down because of land mines, hidden tunnels and concerns about hurting women and children in the area. trey? >> reporter: shep, democratic forces in syria have been saying for months that they are just days from defeating isis. but it is becoming more and more clear that this final battle against the group may not be anywhere close to finished. the syrian democratic forces say thousands of isis fighters are hunkered down and the syrian city of baghouz.
12:39 pm
this is the final piece of territory held by the organization they are fighting to avoid defeat. the fight to lib raeult baghouz, tens of thousands surrendered including 5,000 isis fighters. as u.s. coalition continue to pound baghouz, people continue to flee. the largest camp in northern syria is completely full. shep? >> shepard: what else are they saying about why this particular mission is so difficult? >> reporter: welsh shep, according to the democratic forces, isis is using land mines, also machine gun fire and mortar rounds to push back those forces trying to liberate the city. the spokes person for the syrian democratic forces did say over the weekend that this is the reason it is taking so long to liberate this final piece of land. take a listen to what he had to say over the weekend. >> i think it 's difficult to
12:40 pm
say when this will be over. we are face several difficulties regarding the operation. the number of mines and explosive devices planted by isis and the existence of hideouts used by isis. >> reporter: shep, as for the growing humanitarian crisis and potential resurgence of isis in syria, recent reports indicated that the united states would be leaving 1,000 troops in seer kwrarbgs the pentagon pushing back against those reports today, saying it will only be that number of 400 u.s. troops to remain in the region to try to counter some of these potentials. >> shepard: it's been five years since russia annex or took crimia from the ukraine. the rush president putin marked the occasion by going there and attending the launch of new power plants. nato and the european union continue to condemn the land grab. russian officials say the crimean people voted to join

barr said he's prepared to use the state secrets privilege to end the lawsuit. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live on this. >> reporter: whether the level of transparency threatens national security. in the new declaration believed to be his first involving the secret privilege, attorney general william barr told a california court the justice department will not grant twitter lawyers access to the fbi records. deck hrar raying reads in part, after careful and actual personal consideration of the matter, i have concluded the disclosure of the four categories of information described below could reasonably be expected to cause significant harm to the national security barr wrote. what's at issue are a handful of data sets on the basis of a former fbi memo written by michael steinbeck. the memo was provided for the judge's review and the justice department wants it to go no
12:43 pm
farther. this is believed to be the first by the attorney general invoking the state privilege since he took office about a month ago. other senior administration officials have invoked the privilege including mike pompeo about a suit in afghanistan and former attorney general jeff sessions. he invoked privilege for a terror watch list case. in the california suit that's been running about four years twitter makes a first amendment argument that their rights are violated when the government refuses to allow them statistics and also what's known as national security letters that are a lot more common. they are subpoenas that do not require prior approval from a judge. so far twitter has not issued a new response to the barr declaration. >> shepard: thank you. the supreme court is now taking up the case of one of the beltway snipers. what that could mean for his prison sentence. plus the man charged with kidnapping jayme closs.

river basin and this is the mississippi river basin. it's going to take a while. for a couple of reasons, one there is a lot of ice in that river as it breaks up clog the river and get flooding back behind it on top of that it just takes a while for all of this water to kind of eventually flood downstream. so this is a five-day forecast. everything you are looking at in the red is still moderate flooding. everything you are looking at in that pink color that is still major flooding. we are going five days out and this water just continues to flow down to eventually the mississippi river. and that's where you start to see this flooding get even worse as we get closer and closer to next week. the good news the immediate future this is our future radar we go monday and tuesday, not until tuesday and wednesday we see rain move back into this area not as widespread as initial round of rain. the bigger concern here, shepard, is going to be the snow melt that's going to be coming later this week. this is the snow depth across the you were midwest and. so plain states. deep purple anywhere from
