>> good morning, everyone, on saturday, november 20th. prove in lisbon, portugal for a nato summit and a key topic is future of afghanistan. will the leaders see eye on eye on the exit strategy? all hundreds of thousands of americans will fly this week and the pat downs at the airport making people angry. lawmakers want the t.s.a. to end them. will they keep us safer? >> and schools grading students
on their weight because they could be "too fat." fox and friends continues right now. good morning, everyone, thank you for joining us. dave and i are back after quick tricks where we, too, were subjected to various t.s.a. screaming procedures which we will share with you. >> do you have video? >> i can reenact it. >> i volunteer. we start with headlines. >> and a risk of a second explosion and dangerously high gas levels are delaying rescuers from searching for 29 miners trapped in new zealand, missing inside the largest underground coal mine for more than a day. crews will resume the search when air quality tests show the gas levels are safe. the senator for a missing air force pilot now a recovery operation. air force officials say there is
no chance that he survived the crash in alaska. they found traces of his flight suit and the ejection seat. he crashed during a nighttime training run 100 miles north of the anchorage which was such a hard impact half of the lean is underground leaving a large crater. >> more than 10,000 ground zero workers agreed to a settlement after being supposed to tobs issues dust nine years ago. 500 of the thousands who sue the city declined the offer. the total settlement is worth at leers $625 million. they were arrested on spying for crossing into iran but now according to a top official there, american hikers suhara shoulder and shane bauer and josh fattal may not be spies. it is suggested that the
security officials acted out of "caution," and two remain in custody. they could be released soon. >> and now a look at the forecast. >> been to the park lately? i took this picture of central park, guys, yesterday. still locking like fall. beautiful. and so today, and this was yesterday, thursday is the macy's parade and people will be come -- coming to new york city. i will be live there on thursday morning. send me your pictures and see what is it looking like outside your house on twitter. east coast is looking nice. clear conditions. a few scattered snow flurries cutting across the lakes. but nothing that bad. the big story is across the west with a major storm pulling in and there will be big impacts across the country this week. right now, heavy rain, across
parts of central and southern california and could cause flooding but the snow levels will be dropping to around 2,500' so we have all kinds of winter storm warnings from colorado to california and around montana and idaho and wyoming. snow fall totals could be in excess of around 3' so a lot of the ski areas will enjoy this, an early start to the son. but it is cold with temperatures around 20 to 30 degrees low, and some areas not out of the teens. if you want summer, tampa is 83. >> and everyone is traveling, the business of the travel weeks of the year, everyone headed home for thanksgiving and people are in fear because the t.s.a. restrictions now, with new policies involving invasive pat down and if you decline the body scanners, the guys say ladies
are crying, and people are crying "assault," it is not pretty. >> and lawmakers are asking the t.s.a. to look at, and maybe possibly revising the enhanced pat down features. several representatives, a couple republicans have said they are invasive and violate your fourth amendment right. a head of the t.s.a. answered some of the questions last night. >> we have exempted children 12 and under from the pat down we do. everyone has a right to opt out of the advanced imaging but you will receive a similar level of screening, a thorough pat down. we do not want to have someone like a christmas day bomber go to an airport and opt out and think he will be able to get
through. >> that doesn't make sense. he did not get on in america. remember? he got on in yemen. the other terrorists have not been getting on aircraft in the united states. there is nothing that can happen in the other countries but the t.s.a. doesn't operate there. >> you make a great point, what the new back scanner machine is supposed to do is detect nonmetal weapons so the metal detector can only do so much and terrorists have gotten more creative and we need something new. the first line of defense, the pilots and the flight attendants objected to the machines because of increased radiation. the pictures of the machines were invasive showing body parts. so they object dodd that and the pat down was more invasive. the solution to the problem has not yet been figured out by the t.s.a. >> and now reaction from those who have been to the airports on
both sides of the issue. >> radical people that would do crazy things. we have seen that happen. we have heard stories. i would not oppose the idea of my kids being patted down. >> i am comfortable if i can supervise him. >> anywhere else it would be sexual assault, at the workplace it would be so far beyond acceptable. >> obviously if you want a cigarette after one of these searches, that means it is "envasive." but there are only 68 airports across the country using the body scans and we all flew and did not see the invasive sevens or the body scan machines sow are likely to flight this week and not see or hear anything about this controversy. it has offended a lot. someone got to miami and he got the full pat down from south
america but he went from argentina where they did not do anything, and, it comes back to that, so sarah palin this morning, headed to twitter, and she has an answer for what we need to do. why politically incorrect to profile anyone regarding national security issues? we profile individuals, suspects and other situations, profile away. that is her answer. what other countries are doing. >> we have the former head of el al, arguably the safest airline in the world coming up to talk about how they have kept israel so safe for all of these decades and it has to do with from filing but not racial profiling. >> options include opting out and this week there is a national opt out day and they are asking you to instead of the body scans, say, no, i want the invasive pat down the thought being the t.s.a. would be so
overwhelmed they will make changes but you will pay, because there will be longer lines. will you opt out on wednesday? let us know. >> interesting stuff. will that help or hurt? interesting. and now alaska we have followed a senate race which is not done. we have drama unfolding overnight. and you thought they were certifying murkowski's win in the write-in ballot but joe miller saying he will fight on. he says he wants to make sure the votes are correct. >> we want to make sure the process applied to her votes are applied to the votes cast for joe miller. we want to make sure the same thing that happened in our election is not repeated in a future election. >> victory? >> a judge agreed with joe miller saying he thinks that the votes should be scrutinized more. originally the test was, what is the intention of the voter?
but this judge says, no, siding with joe miller but thinks it should be at the state level. >> joe miller trails by 10,000 votes with 8,000 votes in dispute that could be misspelled. "murkowski," may not be spelled right and if they are turned over to his camp she still wins. after the primary he was angry at her for not listening to the will of the people but they voted her back in and he hey enjoy be listening to the people. >> we have the same reaction to it. he was saying last time when she lost the primary, it is the will of the people, go home. don't be a sore loser. is that not what is occurring? >> he is a lawyer. he wants the law followed. five house races also, undecided at this point. >> coming up for thousands of
>> president obama is at the nato summit in lisbon, portugal, where nato leaders are discussing an afghanistan exit strategy. and our reporter is live with the latest. mike, what do we know of this planned exit strategy? >>reporter: we expect nato will agree to start pulling out of the peaceful provinces of afghanistan next year. they expect there will be combat operations ongoing physical late in 2014 so for more years of combat operations and hopefully the forces in afghanistan can take over control of security with reinforcement from nato allies. >> what do we expect when president obama meets with afghanistan's president karzai today? what is the mood supposed to be? >>reporter: well, essentially trying to get reassurance from karzai he is on board with the
plan for what general petraeus is trying to do in afghanistan. also, trying to get reassurance from karzai that his government is committed to doing a better job of serving the people. thank you, mike, from lisbon. >> a bill to extend benefits for the long term unemployed for three months rejected on friday by republicans without an extension, 800,000 unemployed workers lose benefits. would ending jobless benefits be good for the economy? hear both sides with deputy director of the national unemployment law project and director of strategic communication at the heritage foundation. let me start with you, people saying this could be good for the economy? i am confused by that as republicans argue that tax cuts, you never want to do that. how can they justify cutting jobless benefits for the un. employed during this massive recession? >>guest: first, we are not
talking about cutting benefits. the republicans wanted to support the sting but the democrats were under a suspension bill that does not allow the offset of the $12 million in new spending. that is what the voters said, we want spending under control so we will spend $12 billion and we need to account for it elsewhere >> but that flies in the face of extending bush tax cuts that will cost over $700 billion, where is that offset? >> i argue it costs nothing not to resolution taxes on american public. you are talking about money that the government is acting as if they own. it is in the membership's paychecks so it is theirs to start with and we are asking them not to take more. >> what about the point we don't have the money to pay for it? where does the money come from to extend the benefits? >> the way we get the budget under control and get this economy balance sheet back is to have jobs and unemployment
benefits are the best way to get this recovery, to have energy, when people are working they are paying taxes. not to mention when economic activity is out there, people are paying sales taxes and income taxes and what about the cost of not extending benefits? what does this do to counties and towns? they have to pick up the costs of people sleeping in cars at christmas because of the failure of congress to continue the program. >> the congressional budget office in september had interesting numbers saying in 2009 by extending jobless benefits, unemployment benefits to american we avoided entering into the worst poverty levels in american history and it helped. other economies agree this does more than tax cuts. what do you say? >>guest: i disagree. if you look at president obama's economist, larry summers and the head of policy for treasury they
agree with brook brookings institute that if you keep extending these, you will have an increase of the unemployment rate and you can get it down a point if you kept it at the cap at 26 weeks. we are talking about extending it for two years. congress has to have a plan, just have people on spiral of government dependency or create jobs by repealing obamacare and keeping tax rates where they are? >> and, this could be worse gore the economy, do you buy that, andy? where do you get your numbers? >> well, president reagan didn't cut off jobless benefits until 1984 when the rate was 7.2 percent and we have never cut off the benefits when the economy has been this bad. if you ask someone out there, thousands of people on jobless benefits find jobs each week but
for five jobless workers for each opening it takes a while. they need money to put in the car and to get to an interview and going back to 26 weeks is unprecedented and cruel especially during the holiday season. we know we are our brothers keeper and our sisters' keeper and we don't want families cut off at this time we are trying to share and live to the best of our values. >> thank you for joining us. >> coming up, a year since climategate documents were leaked, and why is the mainstream media not covering that story? are you cheated at the check out counter? many are paying more but getting less phone every datums like less phone every datums like orange juice and toilet paper. hey, lawrence, my parents want to talk to you.

less? all from 16 ounces to 15.75 ounces and when we asked why, they said it is because the new packaging keeps cookies fresher longer. >> orange juice? >> the 64 ounce was only 55 ounces inside but you will not know that because you will not pour it at once. the 96 ounce was down to 89 ounces over a year and you probably never noticed. >> you would not notice that, and not notice it in liquider ternlgent. >> it shrunk an ounce. it came out "new size," and you think new and improved. no, new meaning you are getting less. >> they squeeze the plastic to make it look different. >> and it is only an ounce left. bars of soap are smaller.
from 4.5 ounce to 4 ounces. a small amount and you may not notice. >> you see the items and you do not want to check the ounce numbers how do you get more bang for the buck? >> look at the unit price. if you are brand loyal and buy them all the time look at tags and see how much they are per ounce, pint or quart so when they shrink you will notice the price is up and you can thing of buying competing brand. store brands are great, you can save up to 30 percent on a week's worth of grocery and even up to 50 percent. >> and they are made by the same manufacturer with a different label. >> right. true. >> buying in bulk, people think they will buy a store memberships and buy in bulk. what is the best way to buy in bulk? >> that is a good idea if you buy a lot of paper goods or

incredibly bright but he connected on an emotional level with voters and joe biden goes on to say in the interview that is why he and the president make such a great pair because the president is expect wall and joe emmosts and demonstrates so the yin and the yang. >> no one is disputing the president is brilliant, he went to harvard law but you talk about saying the problem with him in the first term is, first two years he did not connect or sell the policies so are the rest of us too dumb to understand the budget? we understand he is brilliant. >> we are too dumb to get it. >>alisyn: you can't get it. >> i need to go back and play donkey kong. >> the vice president says a lot of things in the interview including that the stimulus did what it was supposed to do.
>> and now the headlines. from pakistan this morning, rejecting a u.s. request to expand the area where american missiles can target taliban and al qaeda operatives. what does it mean? and now frommed with, -- from washington, dc, this is a disgrment about the scope of the drone program where the unmanned aircraft can hit. the "washington post" this morning quoting u.s. and pakistan officials saying a u.s. request has been rejected. and pakistan agreed to moderate measures including additional c.i.a. teams on the ground inside the country. the drone campaign in pakistan has already increased dramatically in recent months with 50 attacks reported sin the beginning of september and the u.s. appeal focuses on the area surrounding one city thought to be a base for afghanistan
taliban leadership and for sending money and recruits. in washington, president obama met with his security team this past week and according to the white house part of the session focusing on the u.s. partnership with pakistan in the fight against, extremists. and on friday, u.s. crone attack destroyed a vehicle in pakistan's tribal district killing at least three suspected militants. so, the drone strikes continue but pakistan now reportedly rejecting the latest appeal by the u.s. to step things up. >> the rest of the headlines president obama is urging senators to ratify the new start treaty saying not ratifying the nuclear treaty with russia could jeopardize national security. >> without ratification the united states will have no inspectors on the ground and no ability to verify russian nuclear activities so those who
block the treaty are breaking president reagan's rule to trust but verify. >> a top republican from arizona said more time was need before approving it. and 67 votes are needed for approval. newly discovered evidence has led the white house ethics committee to postpone the trial of a congressman waters who is accused of helping a financially troubled bank where her husband was a large shareholder and a subcommittee will consider the new evidence rather than proceed with the trial that would have begun november 29th. a dance group from florida is back home after the dreams of performing on live tv were crushed by a terror scare. they were stuck in traffic they decided to run through the lincoln tunnel to make it on time and police surrounded them thinking they were terrorists.

plains for the week. so a big cold spell moving in. across the country, the east is not looking bad, snow flurries and the green across the southern plains is not anything to worry about and temperatures are quite warm across the southeast and you will enjoy a nice day. the action is across the west and we have a major storm pulling in and it will bring rain as far south as southern california and could cause flooding but the heaviest of the rain is north of los angeles and south of san francisco today, some areas picking up a few inches and heavy snow across the inner mountains west at 2' to 3 feet so skiing will be good. >> and now, i know you love reptiles more than i do. the traveling rain forest reptile show is here.

>> it has been a year sin since climate gate broke. >> the controversy had hardly any media coverage. it has been exactly a rear ago, november of last year, the climate gate story broke and how did the mainstream media, "new york times", and the "washington post" cover it? >> the first reaction was ignore it. but it was covered by europe especially great britain but the new media were all over this, talk radio, you guys, the
internet. the coverage has been 12 stories on the big three. that is one story a month. and worse than that, it has been almost no coverage but when they do they dismiss it or use it as a way to buck up their original argument. think about this: remember the secondhand smoke controversy where the tobacco companies were hiding information and they were cooking the books? the media were relentless investigating it, and they did not let go until they got to the bottom of it, like any good investigative downlist but in this case because it goes after a sacred cow. >> and i will play devil's advocate, what if you are another network and you think we do not know enough about the story and we el hold off on it, is that, perhaps, the motivation >>guest: it never stopped them from before from investigating.
the problem is, they have been preaching for years and years and years this was settled science and global warming was settled science and the public is not buying it. the same people before were saying it was global cooling and now they are saying climate change so they are messed up but now it is turning out that a university which is the ground zero of all of this is cooking the books. >>alisyn: placialg -- flash forward, they are saying the scientists have been exonerated. >>guest: though way. how can that happen if they have not been investigated? they have been ignored it does not noon they have been exonerated. you have e-mails and the leaked information and no one is disputing this. and it is very, very damming. >> not covering the story them and now covering it. >> and the university looked memos talk about a campaign to
discredit anybody who questions them and it continues. >> thank you very much from the research center. coming up, schools grading students on their weight report card suggesting your kid could be too fat. be too fat. is this necessary? and she still drinks it every day.

and now, clearly the intent here is to keep our children healthy but you say there are potential problems. why? >> absolutely. if they fall into the kids' hands, the problem is a lot them take that upon themselves, they are unaware of, really, what is appropriate, and nutrition icial for their body and they are stuck in this self image and society really focuses on the self-image so if they get this information they are starting the battle of poor self-esteem, anxiety, controlling their food intake, starting dysfunctional eating pattons -- patterns. >> and body mass index is not accurate so this could be hurricane earl -- could be harmful, not sent home

of the problem but you need an understanding. she is right, there is a context and a way to utilize it but the parents, those that are intending to help their child may not have the proper information and they may have a child that is fit and athletic and they take that information and restrict their calories. so they are providing more harm than good. they don't understand the whole concept. >> is this the schools job or be handled by the jorkt? -- doctor? >> we find that people like myself are not as visible and available as we need to be. health education and eating healthy from birth is not something that partners are expected to learn how to do. it takes a lifetime for many adults. but people like myself are available as the community level and pediatricians are the gate

that he is capable of providing better government services to his people which obviously general petraeus and other officials believe is critical to neutralize the taliban. if they get good services from the government they can reject the taliban. and making sure that he shows nato he is on board with the plan the next four years. but he is jazzed that afghanistan forces could be able to take over the peaceful provinces. >>alisyn: interesting from lisbon. and coming up at 11:30 this morning, president obama. hold a news conference from lisbon which we will bring to you live. and now the rest of the headlines. the risk of dangerously high gas levels delaying rescuers from searching for 29 miners trapped in new zealand. they have been missing inside the largest coal mine for more than a day. crews will resume the search when air quality tests show the levels are safe.

the world trade center site nine years ago. 500 of the thousands of workers who sued declined to take this offer and the total settlement is worth at least $625 million. >> another amazing rescue in chile, new video where dozens of firefighters scrambled to save three children trapped in a 50' hole. my gosh! they were gathering firewood and fell into a hidden hole and two had minor cuts but in good shape. they know how to do this by now. they are mastering the art of getting people out from underground. >> problems in new zealand and china and they could lend their expertise. >> and now the weather. >> all the activities across the west where we have winter storm warnings. you can see down around los angeles warnings extending back
across the rockies. a major system. some areas will see 2' to 3' of snow. that is in california. snow across the high country of arizona, as well. temperatures are extremely cold and we are seeing heavy rainfall south of san francisco, north of los angeles and we could see mudslides and flooding from the storm. the northern side is where the cold air is set up and seattle temperatures down into the lower 20's the next couple of nights. and across the east nothing at all. clear skies from florida and maybe lake effect snow but no big problems. the cold air is across the northern plains and it will be cold this week and that is the story. get ready for the thanksgiving weekend that will cause big travel delays wednesday and the weekend looking extremely cold and it will feel like winter.
and now our attention to the skies, lawmakers this morning, the news of the morning, asking t.s.a. to reconsider the pat down procedures that caused so much controversy this week, a number of representatives including some republicans have come forward, and are complaining of the 68 scanners in place that may not affect you, but if it is in your backyard it will affect you when you travel. >> this is the story of the week, the pat downs, and anger directed at the t.s.a. and the head of the t.s.a. was on "the factor," and he was asked about the policies, would it keep us safe or have prevented the terror scares we have seen recently? and he answered that question. >> the bottom line is how to best provide for the safety and security of the traveling public
in light of a determined enemy who has proven adept at considering well designed, well concealed devices which would not show up in a walk through detector. >> would the new device, would that have found the christmas bomber, the guy with the explosive liquids in his underwear? >>guest: the advanceed imaging technology gives the best possibility of detecting that. >> you are not saying it would stop it? >>guest: we don't know precisely because we don't have that exact device on that exact person but it does give us the best opportunity because it would perhaps be as you mentioned, a nonmetal device that is well designed and well concealed. >> and he did not get on in the
united states, the terrorist, he got on in another country. >> so the answer is know. but the pilots do not like the new policies what they call the scanners and they don't like them because they are more invasive, they can see through your clothes and they give you more radiation and pilots already suffer from radiation having to be up in the sky so long and they don't like that. they ask their, the t.s.a. not to subject them to that. they have a pass. and the t.s.a. says they will not subject pilots who travel in uniform and show two forms of i.d. so is this telling terrorists how to do it now, get a pilot's uniform and show two forms of i.d., all the information coming out is more than we ever used to have before we had the high-tech measures. >> we ask for your thoughts. do you like the new measures by the t.s.a.?
and on facebook a t.s.a. worker asked an old woman in front of her if she had a wife beater on so they can take off her sweat hurts. but a citizen citizen may not know what that was and she was confused and pulled from the line for a pat down by a female t.s.a. worker and she said the senior citizen was embarrassed and did not know what a wife beater was. >> and from wisconsin, i want through pittsburgh and screening took two seconds and i felt safer to know everyone goes through this. >> four out of five americans support the full body x-rays. and another says, why not use dogs they can be trained bomb materials and be more accurate than the pat down. others asked that, as well. >> and a tweet from missouri,
and keep those comments coming. and now to the state of alaska, where the senate race still goes on although murkowski claimed a victory on wednesday, here we are on saturday, and it looks like it could go into next week because joe miller said he is going to con toast over 8,000 votes that may have been misspelled. they may not have written in "murkowski," correctly. he talked yesterday about where he goes from here. we want to make sure the same process applied to her votes are applied to the votes cast for joe miller and make sure the same sort of thing that happened in our election is not repeated in a future election. >> the argument, though, is the votes that, the write in candidate votes were supposed to
be clear, clearly written for "murkowski," and he complained 36 hours before the review they changed the law or changed the process by which they review the votes to include "voter intent," not something that is part of the statute and he wants that removed. >> a federal judge agreed and granted an injunction against murkowski being named as the senate, the new senator. but it is temporary injunction because the judge says it does raise serious legal issues but it should be handled at the state court level where miller says he is headed on monday. >> and murkowski says i lead by 10,000 votes and he is questioning 8,000, so if they give all of those votes to the miller camp there is not enough to make up the margin. she is still appearing to be the senator elect.
what do you think of the race, should joe it is back or fight? we have talked about the pat downs that have people angry and we will hear from the former head of security at the safest airlines would says they are not helping stop terrorists at all. on our car insurance. great! at progressive, you can compare rates side by side, so you get the same coverage, often for less.
[ disco playing ] and this is to remind you that you could save hundreds! yeah, that'll certainly stick with me. we'll take it. go, big money! i mean, go. it's your break, honey. same coverage, more savings. now, that's progressive. call or click today. and the life you want to live. with rheumatoid arthritis, there's the life you live... fortunately there's enbrel, the #1 most doctor-prescribed biologic medicine for ra. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, fatigue, and stop joint damage. because enbrel suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections.
serious, sometimes fatal, events including infections, tuberculosis,@ lymphoma, and other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis. ask your doctor if you live or have lived in an area where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, while on enbrel, you experience persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. and help bridge the gap between the life you live... and the life you want to live.
thousands will fly over thanksgiving just as the new pat downs occurring. and owe next guest former head of security for el al, the safest airlines in the world. you say terrorists are not caught by technology or by touching someone. how are they caught? >>guest: by having the interviews of every passenger, no exceptions, 99.9 percent of the passengers are good passengers and you want them to be safe and secure and they will cooperate with you. the suspicious one, you can see immediately something is wrong with him. >>alisyn: is that practical for america? el al has done a from job of protecting israel by profiling, which is a bad word leader but you are not availably profiling
you are doing these interviews. can we do that here? >>guest: i have no doubt we can do it. let me explain i wrote to the t.s.a. about this, i wrote to the congress about this, i told them the security and the conditions we have in this country, look what happened, each time the terrorists came to attack us they were the winners and we lost. so why we cannot take one airport, try to implement our system, find out if folk are willing. >>alisyn: what did the t.s.a. say to you, how did they respond? >>guest: they send me nice letter but "don't bother us." >>alisyn: you do behavior programming, see who is acting suspiciously and ask questions. why wouldn't we do that here in the united states? >>guest: because we don't know
what is security, we don't want to learn how to be pro-active, we prefer to be reactive. time after time, we force the government to go into attack the countries, and from there they attack, or kill our people. why i have to be reactive and not pro-active. it is so easy, so simple, so successful, why not use the interview? they call it profiling. they can call it whatever they want. we interview every passenger, there is no discrimination. and through the profiling, we come to a point where we could stop a passenger in london or in switzerland with explosives inside their luggage when one thought he was smuggling drugs and others thought he was carrying presents.
>>alisyn: and you got to the bottom of it. the answer is not what they do at the airport. we are taking off our shoes, taking off our coats, going through the machines, and you say the answer is not to stop them at the airport but before. how do do you that? >>guest: we know how to train people. we hire only qualified. and we have a list of passengers and we match the list and if a suspicious passenger is on the list he cannot surprise us. we are waiting for him. it is so simple. it takes minutes. use your head. stop ignoring the need of savings lives. this will not lead us to any good solution or resolution. >>alisyn: you are the former head of security for el al and i hope the t.s.a. is listening. we appreciate you coming on. and young children get ear
pay have -- you may have been getting the wrong advice for treating your children's ear infections, because many recover without drugs. should you still take your child to the doctor if he or she gets the ear infection? we have professor of medicine and fox news contributor. good morning to you are doctor. >> this is the biggest medicated
thing, is it overtreated in this case? >>guest: ear infections are overtreated. the issue is when you give drugs, they can have side effects. children in the study which looked at 100 other studies in terms of treating children with ear infections with drugs, and a lot of the children developed rash and more and there can be side effects from the antibiotics. maybe just stay home. you should always talk to your doctor if your child is not well. watch and wait may not be unreasonable. but a decision to make with your doctor. in some cases we need to treat right away. >> but parents ask if you really need the antibiotics. and another thing parents understand, children's tylenol because we all use it or used it at one point. it disappeared and recalled and now it is back. are there concerns?
>>guest: it is become on the shelves. if you remember the recall was not because of any child becoming sick from the mode but it was a recall because of certain changes in concentration in the mode indication and concern of particles in the mode. from a manufacturing point, that has been corrected. it is back in use. parents have been using other forms of tylenol. so if they go back or not, we will see. >> but a green light to use children's tylenol. and now, very interesting medical advice saying gain a little bit of weight, something we love to hear. what does she mean, why does gaining weight help? >>guest: she has something smart to say here. studies have shown women over the age of 40, being too thin can make you look too old. the wrinkles we get on our face, filling that up with a little bit of fat helps us look
younger. >> when you lose weight it shows the wrinkles and the bones and we are not talking about 30 or 40 pounds, a normal amount. >>guest: i love this message, keep a normal weight, do not stay too thin or think that becoming thin helps you look young. stay away from too much sun and smoking. >> she is right on. skinny is a bad thing. it is great advice. not that she has a lot of weight on her. doctor, from mount sinai, we appreciate the medical advice. >> the lame duck session congress is back in session. some say it is time for members would lost in the mid-formers to go home. not pass more laws. and now they are looking at the most important legislation facing our country even though some of them were elected, or, rather, voted to go home.

survived. they found traces of his jet suit and ejector seat. he was on a training run 100 miles north of anchorage, the impact so hard half of the plane is underground leaving a large crater. >> more than 10,000 ground zero workers agreed to a settlement this will pay hundreds of thousands of dollars. not everyone is on poured, however, about 500 of the thousands of workers who sued the city over the cleanup designed to take the offer. the total settlement is worth at least 625 million dollars. they were arrested on espionage charges more than a year ago for crossing into iran. but now according to a top official there, american hikers, sarah shourd, shane bainer and josh fattal might not be spies after all. suggesting that the security officials acted out of caution. he had intered that the two
could soon be released and shourd of course was released in september. those are your headlines. >> let's get to rick reichmuth who has a check of our father nice conditions. >> yeah, nice over on this side of the country. not out west, do you have any skiing plans. dave, you do. >> not just yet, but can't wait. >> winter storm warnings, colorado and the northern rockies and some areas seeing maybe two to three feet of snow the next couple of days and kind of a bonanza of winter across the west and extremely cold as well. temps extremely cold and windy and feels much colder than that, feels leak 1 degree in rapid city and that cold air is there and only going to get reinforced and even colder air driving down the next couple of days into the northern plains and slowly make its way to the east coast by the time we get towards friday. so, kind of big changes in store for the country this week. here is what we're looking at. the rotation up there is
bringing the coldest amount of the air in across parts of the areas like seattle, temps were into the 20's. heavy rain, tehat's going to be a lot of snow. across the east, clear skies, lake effect snows, especially across the a lakes of u.p. of michigan. and business disparities in temps. 80's, southern florida and teens in the northern rockies. and might hit the mid 80's across of texas for your day tomorrow. send it back to you. >> thanks, rick. >> so are' probably travelling this week to see family somewhere in the country for thanksgiving and you will perhaps confront the new tsa screening procedures. the first one is that back scatter scanner that shows, you know, it sort of moves around you and it shows more of your body. >> no, she's not going to pat you down, i'm sorry. >> stand there with your arms
there. i'm hoping. >> and pilots don't like that, flight attendants don't like that and many passengers don't like that. it's too invasive. if you don't like it, you have to have the body pat downs, causing all sorts of problems. >> and some say they feel sexually harassed after going through the procedure. women report walking away crying and feeling injured and the lawmakers are asking the tsa to loosen up the policies, to make some changes. who are they? representatives john micah, a republican and tom petry, a republican and as is ted poe, and democrats. jackson and benny thompson from mississippi. this is bipartisan and asking the tsa to loosen up on some of the procedures. here is what the head of the tsa, john pistol, had to say. >> we use a lot of intelligence as i mentioned to put people who are of concern on watch lists, whether that's a no-fly list and never get on
a flight or a select list so we can provide additional scrutiny and gather as much information as we can about the person and background and things that the law allows without profiling, and then we try to make the informed judgment as to how we can best procedure. >> informed judgment. that's what one of our guests this morning wants the tsa to take up. because he says all of these things that we're doing now. hundreds of thousands of dollars to put these machines that taxpayers are paying for, they don't work. they don't catch the types of bombs, types of material at that we need to protect ourselves with. this guy is a genius and i hope they're listening to him. he ran el al airline, the entire security wing and set up the safest airline in the world out of israel. here is what he had to say. >> interviews of every passenger, no exception. suspicious one, you can see immediately there's something wrong with him. the physiological changes you will see in his face.
take one airport and try to implement the system, and find out if or not-- >> what he says makes sense. what the airline would say, tsa would say, we're the united states and don't have time with the travelling public to interview every single passenger, but you do because the interviews are just a few minutes. you walk up to a passenger, hi, what are you doing today. are you carrying anything to do, ask you to bring anything and see the physiological changes and maybe save time from those incredible screening lies. >> they're trained to recognize, after you're going through the series of questions and lips quivering, they've been able to find and stop two denver explosives, separately that the people would have gotten on plains. the explosives went through the x-ray machine. >> it's shocking. it's frightening. we'll continue to debate that and continue to debate this as well. extending jobless benefits, another issue before this lame duck congress senate also
taking this up. should we extend jobless benefits in this country to essentially two years? it is being debated, doesn't look like it has a necessarily a path to success, but clayton debated this on both sides. is it good for this country or is it bad economically for us to keep on extending unemployment benefits. . >> unemployment benefits are one of the best ways that we can get this recovery, to have some energy. when people are working they're paying taxes. not to mention that when economic activity is out there. people are paying sales taxes, paying income taxes and what about the cost of not extending benefits? if you keep extending these indefinitely you're going to actually increase the unemployment rate and get it down one point if you kept it at the cap at 26 weeks, right now we're talking extending it for over two years, at some point congress has to come up with a plan and are we going to have people on an indefinite spiral of government dependency or actually going to create jobs.
>> and responding to the question this morning. they said it seems hypocritical of republicans and i was surprised by the response. republicans are pushing for the tax cuts. you don't want to raise taxes during the recession. the companies folded and it's not that they don't want to work. how can you not extend jobs benefits. without an extension. 800,000 unemployed workers will lose benefits by november 30th. 2 million will lose them in december if they're not extended. >> at some point don't you have to shut off the spigot? you have to make the decision. how do you pay-- >> you bring up a great point. how do you pay for it. a question we were raising back and forth. 700 billion dollars for the extension of the bush tax cuts. billions for unemployment benefits. where does the money come from. >> the magical number. 52 weeks, 99 weeks, as they're debating, let us know what you think.

>> despite increasing drug violence at the border the obama administration is planning to pull back national guard troops and he wants more troops on the border and thinks we should be spending them into mexico. congressman michael burgess represents texas' 26th district and wants more on the border as well. >> good morning, how are you, alisyn. >> i'm doing well, limited resources, limited money, we
have to make choices where to put national guard troops. would you rather see them on the u.s. side of the border preventing them from coming in or in mexico helping to crack down on drug cartels? >> well, i think they need to be on this side of the border, particularly the texas side of the u.s. border, that's where the difficulty is, and that's the job of the federal government. we are required to defend the borders and deliver the mail. we're not doing either one that well right now. the troops a need to be on the u.s. side the violence that's on the other side is in danger of spilling over to our sides and our citizens need to be protected and our citizens demand to be protected and quite frankly that's what we heard a lot about in this last election. >> well, your governor, rick perry says that the u.s. should consider deploying military forces into mexico to help stem the drug related violence there. >> i have not heard that, i have not talked to the governor about that for my--
ments do you agree with him. >> my opinion is we need to do what we are required to do on the u.s. side of the border. let's prevent the violence from coming into this country. there are special problems that are encountered when our troops are stationed in other countries. there's the whole command and control issue, there's the problems, the acknowledged problems with corruption on the mexican side of the border. i don't know that we need to be getting into that. what we do need is do is protect our citizens on this side of the border. >> the problem, 135 million dollars was budgeted for the troops to be along the border and what the president is considering doing is taking-- because we're running out of money and that money will run out sometime apparently in february, is reallocating resources, take some away from texas, take some away from new mexico, put them in arizona, which of course is considered ground zero for this fight. >> well, every state, every
border state has their own particular needs. i just find it ironic that the president's secretary of homeland security says if the governor of texas needs more troops he can activate the state guard and yeah, when the governor of an are arizona attempts to protect her side of the border eric holder is there with a lawsuit saying you can't do that with administrative law and the administration needs to sit down and conclude what the behavior is vis-a-vis the problems they have, the federal government has on the border and how they're going to help their staets, partners, execute those orders. >> how do you want to see these 1100 national guards troops definitied up. an equal amount in california, new mexico, arizona, texas. >> well, here is the problem. when the southwest border augmentation plan was announced, governor perry asked president obama for a thousand troops along the texas border. we have 1200 miles of a 2000 miles u.s.-mexico border.
clearly texas has some special needs. the problem was the administration said well there's a thousand troops that we're going to divide them along all of the border states and that clearly wasn't an adequate response by the administration. now, look, i understand the problems the fiscal problems. these are all stemming from the fact that the democratic congress did not pass a single appropriations bill this past year, we are going to pass appropriations bills in january and the funding will be there. >> congressman michael burgess. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> more "fox & friends" in two minutes.

we're so blessed in this country to have so many freedoms and this holiday season we're sitting around the table and with our families and i think we should not forget the people who have given us our freedom and be tharngful. >> what are you doing? >> there's a wish registry. >> a wish registry at sears.com/heroes at home and there's 21,000 families at this point that are registered. what we're doing is raising money for the families now through december 31st and those moneys will go directly to the families, all of it, 100% in gift card form for sears, buy decorations, presents for kids, warm coats, to fill the void of loved ones not being there. >> you saw the update and now $982,000 raised for military families at sears.com. >> and you're helping to feed needy families. >> the great thanksgiving on monday and i'll be down there and we'll be feeding people
coming in and we're expecting to project a thousand dollars at least, they do between a thousand and 4,000 people we expect to see and i'm excited to be a part of that mission, too, as well because there are so many in our country right now who need help and you need a meal and to be able to provide one on such a time on thanksgiving, i'm grateful to be a part of that. i'm curious, is the crown one size fits all. >> one size fits the miss america. >> she's trying to get-- >> and angling all morning. >> the model, as earl-- >> run for hills. >> she's going out her reign is about to come to an end, but doing a lot of good. thank you. >> happy thanksgivings. >> you as well. >> and pakistan rejecting the u.s. request to expand where american missiles can target terrorists and what does it hean for the war on terror? we'll have a live report.

for the december ash and the righter asked many times, why isn't the president connecting and americans feel he's aloof. and he followed up saying that's why we're such a good team because joe biden is the emotive demonstrative one and we're yin and yang. >> and he was reflective. he asked about his dad and told him and taught him an important lesson when joe biden was growing up, to be quiet, stoic, almost american cowboys guy. >> i'm not sure he took that to heart. >> that's the impression from the article joe went the opposite direction of what his dad told him. famous for opening his mouth. >> and the interesting part about this brilliant comment is then, if we're not understanding the president because he's brilliant. is that to say is most of the
american public is stupid and doesn't get it just like after the mid terms he said well i've failed to really sell my policies and connect with the people. is that because we're not able to understand what you said and the legislation you passed? >> there was some similarities-- >> what's the interpretation. >> there's similarities between that and the same assessment about john kerry you recall in the campaign in 2004, when he was up there talking about all of these things, is it just we were not intelligent. >> we don't understand brilliant people. >> put it on our level. >> and the president is also hartley-- john kerry was saying the patrician, erudite ivy leaguer and the people like president obama, but not the policies and joe biden might have slightly-- >> let us know what you think, firstname.lastname@example.org. >> and this morning is pakistan rejecting a request to expand the area where american missiles can target taliban and al-qaeda operatives? what does it mean for our
efforts to destroy the pakistani taliban and al-qaeda? tell us about the new policy. >> well, the drone strikes actually continue, but pakistan now turning down the request by the u.s. to set things up around the set of peca in pakistan. it would not comment on the cia drone campaign itself, but the u.s. and pakistan are working more closely to pursue militants elsewhere in pakistan and "the washington post" is quoting u.s. and pakistan officials today saying a u.s. request to expand drone strikes to that region has been rejected, instead of pakistan reportedly agreed to more moderate measures including additional teams on the ground, inside the country and overall the drone campaign in pakistan has increased dramatically in recent months with about 50 attacks beginning since september.
and the city of quetta is thought to be a base for afghan, pakistan, and the obama security team this past week, part of the session focusing on the crucial u.s. partnership with pakistan, back to you guys. >> julie kirtz, thank you for that update. meanwhile, wall street may be on the verge of getting rocked as the feds appear days away from a massive insider trading bust and the bust will blow the lid off pervasive insider trading that helped financial workers reap millions. everyone from bankers to hedge fund managers, consultants, could be charged in the three-year investigation.
