tv FOX and Friends Sunday FOX News November 17, 2013 3:00am-7:01am PST
held row hello and good morning to you. it is sunday, november 17th. i'm anna kooiman. another obama care promise. if you like your doctor, too bad. we're live in washington with the latest. jesus takes the wheel? not on these buses. two bus drivers getting the boot for bringing prayer to their ride. what happened to all the tolerance we were promised. details ahead. did you see this? hail mary. sometimes prayers are answered at the last minute. unbelievable. "fox & friends" begins. you've got to see t you've got to see it, you've got to see it. there, he caught it.
right now "fox & friends." roll it. oh, good morning. if you're not in a great mood, you're not fully awake yet, we plan to help. >> you two are in especially great moods because your microphones are not on your tie. this has been the debate. >> there has been major changes. first, this morning, president obama preparing to rally supporters to help bail out obama care. he will give an yoon line speech to the group organizing for action. who are they and what does all of this mean? thank heaven peter doocy is live for us in washington to break it all down. peter. >> tucker, the most recent fox news poll revealed that half the country thinks president obama straight up lied when he said over and over that americans could keep their health care plans if they wanted to. now he's reaching out to anyone that wants to talk or listen is more like it inviting his entire
public e-mail list to a conference call tomorrow put together by organizing for action which describes itself online on their website as, quote, the grassroots movement built by millions of americans to pass the agenda. i have three years left as president. there's a lot left on my to do list. that's why i want to talk to you. you're the ones putting in the time and effort to achieve real progress and fighting to make the agenda americans vetted for last fall a reality. earlier in the week at the white house president obama acknowledged that he's got some work to do when it comes to the public understanding of the affordable care act. >> i'm just going to keep on working as hard as i can around the priorities that the american people care about. i think it's legitimate for them
to expect me to win back their trust and on a whole range of issues in general. >> since that was from thursday, we know that republicans are not likely to let up in their criticism of the affordable care act's sloppy rollout because this week's official gop weekly address features senator ron johnson. he said when president obama told the country he's sorry for the way things have gone so far, his comment was as phony as his fraudulent marketings. >> peter doocy, live for us in washington. part of that e-mail said, join me on this call, i have one more campaign fight. the president's promise on the campaign trail had long been, look, if you like your doctor, you will keep your doctor. i'm talking to a group of elderly folks. you are not going to lose your doctor. you don't have to worry about it. >> unless you pass the law forcing private companies to employ doctors and then another law requiring doctors to work,
we may get to that, by the way, you can't control the marketplaces they're finding out. united health care, which is one of the biggest employers of doctors in this country, has dropped thousands of them from their insurance plans. the reason, obama care cuts reimbursement for medicare and in the end, it doesn't make economic sense for this company to employ all these physicians when they're not getting the money from the government. >> right. so now what's happening is all of these elderly patients are wondering do i need to switch providers in do i need to switch plans to continue to see my doctor? elderly folks, for example, of course they are going to have very strong ties with their doctors and probably go see them a lot more than the young, healthy americans that the president is relying on to sign up even though they haven't been to try to make sure this thing actually gets off the ground and can be funded. wanted to mention that aetna mentioned back in october, coming from "the wall street journal" that they expected slowing growth in 2014 in their
medicare advantage plans as well. >> meanwhile, these costs may go up. we heard the president coming out making his apology. look, we'll work to make sure you can keep some of your health care plans. if they're not removed from you, one of the things the president didn't mention, the cost of the plans that you're currently worrying about losing now may go up as a result of this. in fact, the ceo, her name is karen ignani, she is the ceo of ahip. she says, changing the rules after the health plans have met the requirements of the law could destabilize the market. due to these changes, fewer younger and healthier people don't purchase it, premiums will increase and there will be fewer prices for consumers. >> this is a rude awakening for insurance companies that were for obama care. the law requires people to buy
their product and any industry would like that. if congress passed a law to buy coca-cola, coke would be on board. now it turns out the president is up there making the law on the fly at press conferences, changing it around. i think he's losing their support. >> what do you think is going to happen if people are paying more for their plans? don't you think they're going to start using the doctor more? i want to get the most bang for my buck. so at the slightest sniffle if i don't have to pay as much as i use the to have to pay for a simple doctor's visit or something like that, then i'm probably going to start using it more. there's going to be super long lines trying to get in to see your primary care physician. that's something we see in other countries that have similar symeanwhile, it's no clear sign whether or not this will be all fully implemented again to tucker's idea of this being a random implementation. we had some legislation come out of the house of representatives
and a bill that 39 people supported. now it needs to go to the senate where democrats have to come on boards. it's not a clear sign as to whether or not democrats would support it but because you remember they had been fully supportive of the president. let's take a look back at some of these senators and what they said about the rollout. let's listen. >> you can keep the doctors you know and trust. you can keep the insurance you have if you like it. >> if you like what you have today, that will be what you have when this legislation is passed. >> i'm not going to support a health care reform plan that's going to take away health care that you've got right now or a health care plan that you like. >> if you have coverage and you loo i can it, you can keep it. if you have your doctor and you like him or her, you should be able to keep them as well. >> if you have a doctor now, you have a medical professional you want, you get to keep that. if you have an insurance program or a health care policy you
want, the identify deis to make sure you keep it. >> i like what i have. would you please leave me alone? and the answer is, yes. in fact, we guarantee it. >> in fact, one of our core principles, that if you like health care you have, you can keep it. >> people who like their insurance and their doctors, keep them. those individuals who like the coverage they already have will be able to keep their current plan. >> really? because the last time i checked i think 5 million americans have already lost their plan. >> when senator dick durbin says we're going to leave you alone, that's your cue to buy real estate in new zealand because that's not going to happen. by the way, the president came out on thursday and said, and i'm quoting, it's very important to remember that i promised you could keep your health insurance plan but congress said that. they lost 63 seats over this in the 2010 mid terms. they're preparing to do the same. they are desperately trying to
run away from the white house. tape like this makes it hard. we have other stories on this sunday morning. two sailors from the guided missile cruiser chancel lorsville being treated for minor burns after a drone crashed into the ship. the drone was testing the ship's combat weapons systems when it happened. the ship now heading back to base in san diego so they can investigate the damage. brand-new developments in the case of a missing family found in shallow graves in the california desert. joseph mcstay, his wife summer and their two young sons were all apparently murdered. now sources close to the investigation say one of the parents had their hands bound. experts say the shallow grave's close proximity to the freeway indicate it was likely not a professional hit. they vanished without a trace back in 2010. surveillance video of four people walking across the border to mexico led the investigators
to believe they may have voluntarily left on their own. police are wondering how they ended up nearly 100 miles from home and who may be responsible. overnight, at least five people hurt at the los angeles memorial coliseum when fans rushed the field after the usc football team win over stanford. one person suffering a possible broken leg. another fell. all ten why taken to the hospital to get checked out. all right. are you ready for some sports, guys? this one, the talk of college football world this morning. what can be one of the most incredible hail mary touchdown's. it was caught on camera. look at this. >> lets it go. oh, my god! >> oh, my goodness. >> oh, no! >> can you believe that? auburn down 38-37 with just seconds left on the clock.
qb nick marshall threw up a desperation heave on 4th and 18. somehow ricardo lewis pulled it in off that tip. auburn wins 43-38. that's why you throw them up there. right? sometimes it happens. >> one in 500 times. >> one in 500 times, rick. you never know when it's going to happen. >> unbelievable. >> good morning. >> good morning, guys. there's a loot happening weather wise. >> there is? >> yes, there is. today will be a big day. take a look at this video that we'll start with out of washington and oregon. both of these areas. is a saquami pass. great news for the ski industry out there. they can always use the snow pass spmpt that's the positive side to this storm heavy rain
falling across the ohio valley and mississippi valley. this is the snow we saw yesterday bringing you a little bit of snow. it's this energy in parts of the ohio valley. today we have a significant severe weather threat. anywhere you see the yellow is a threat for severe weather. the storm prediction weather has under the severe threat to a high. that only happens about four to five times a year where you get a high risk for severe weather. big tornadoes starting around 2:00 to 3:00 this afternoon. >> good snow? >> that is not snow. that is tornadoes. >> oh, i saw the white and i immediately think snow. thanks, rick. >> you bet. coming up on the show, is a political band aid what's needed to fix obama care. the president's solution will make things a whole lot worse so you better buckle up. take a look at this. two fishermen come to the rescue of a baby dolphin and their reward? take a look at the happy dance

where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, have symptoms such as fever fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not start humira if you have any kind of infection. ask your doctor if humira can work for you. this is humira at work. in the nation, what's precious to you is precious to us. ♪ love is strange so when coverage really counts, count on nationwide insurance. we put members first. join the nation. ♪ nationwide is on your side ♪
americans they could keep their health care plans. that wasn't true. >> insurers can extend current plans that would otherwise be canceled into 2014 and americans whose plans have been canceled can choose to reenroll in the same kind of plan. >> now the president offers a short-term fix for the obama care crisis, but critics on both sides of the aisle and the in the insurance industry, this
says this may make it worse. the vice president for the association of mature american citizens, andrew mangioni. we're hearing that this was a complete surprise to a lot of insurance companies, the ones that are, of course, going to implement t. what's the effects going to be on the coverage they offer? >> well, you know, first of all, it would be a logistical nightmare to have insurance companies reissue plans for millions of people switching them back to the plans. think about it. the process itself is staggering. think about the claims people. which claims would they be paying and for what plans? think about the premiums that are going to be charged. which plan's going to be in force, what type of coverage will be there. this is just for a temporary fix. you could potentially see premiums rise as a result of which -- what kind of people are going to end up in which risk pool. >> and the costs associated with this switchover, this last-minute change that they didn't know about before it was announced have got to be significant and consumers will
pay those, right? >> absolutely. we don't even know if the insurers have the manpower. they spent three years, tucker, keep this in mind, preparing for obama care. now overnight they have to come up with a temporary fix that will last a year. they may not have the manpower in place to reissue these policies and handle all the administrative processes that are associated with switching people back. >> the president claims at the outset these plans are bad for you, they're dangerous. it's the wild west out there. then under pressure from his own party in the congress, he reverses course and says you get to keep these dangerous plans somehow. but only until after the mid-term election. there's a political component here, isn't there? >> no question about it. i hope that the president and the administration really hope isn't coming up with this scheme to now blame insurance companies when they dump this logistical nightmare on their lap in order to take some cover away from the affordable care act. yeah, there's definitely some politics involved here.
>> this could be you're saying a setup where he's basically setting the groundwork for an insurance company failure. he turns around and says, look, it's their fault. >> well, we hope that isn't the case, but the clouds are forming on the horizon. >> huh. so what happens very quickly after the 2014 deadline ends? do insurance companies have to revert to the plans they were supposed to be selling in the first place? >> that's what the president said at his press conference. it remains to be seen. it's going to be another logistical nightmare. the whole fix causes a lot of destabilization of marketplaces in the insurance industry as well as uncertainty for consumers. >> the one thing businesses want is the ability to plan for the future. this makes it impossible. thank you for joining us and for that crisp explanation of what's going on. >> my pleasure. coming up, you ever heard of bucky balls. a million dollar business. it's been shut down by the

papers on the fast and furious. a house being washed away in a recent typhoon. watch this. brand new numbers show the storm killed at least 3600 people and injured more than 12,000. nearly 1200 people are still missing. anna? all right. thanks, clayton. it all started with $1,000 investment in high powered magnet. 2012 bucky balls was set to bring in 25 million in sales until the consumer product safety commission deemed the desk toy too dangerous to sell and the business was forced to fold. this wasn't enough for the cpsc. for the very first time ever, folks, they're going after an individual, suing the former ceo craig zucker for an estimated $57 million. zucker won't go down without making a fight. he is making his own legal move and joins us now this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> these are a lot of fun. now that you've had problems with these bucky balls, now you
have liberty balls. the issue was the cpsc said they weren't safe. children were following them. you never marketed them to kids, did you? >> no. no. bucky balls were always marketed and intended for adults. the product had five warnings on it, keep away from all children. and we had a very vigorous safety program to ensure that they weren't getting into children's hands at all times. >> give me a blow-by-blow. what happened exactly? >> well, the company started in 2009. we created a product called bucky balls, a partner and i. it really was the ultimate, you know, entrepreneur success story. we grew from a company with $1,000 each into a company that had 5,000 retailers selling our product. we were poised to do about $25 million in 2012 and working very, very closely with the consumer product safety commission at all times until july 12th, 2012, when they came to us and they said, we are suing you in federal -- in
administrative law court to determine that these products should be banned, removed from shelves and they sued the company overnight. >> how did this make you sneel there have been reports of kids swallowing detergent, laundry detergent pods. those haven't been completely banned. the business owners haven't been sued for $57 million like you are. >> sure. yeah. no. not just that, the rate of incident with those products is actually far less than that, of bucky balls. so i think when you start to look at it, there certainly was an element of selective enforcement and the fact that an individual was named in this case points to potentially more than selective enforcement. >> this doesn't seem fair. you take the risk just like every small business owner does in america, and then the government puts a target on your back essentially is the way you say you feel. what can we all learn from this and what action are you taking?
>> we have taken a very unprecedented action and this week actually sued the consumer product safety commission back. we've taken the issue into a federal court in maryland to determine that the cpsc and the government have no jurisdiction over us. we've asked the court to help determine -- to create an injunction to come after me, but i think, you know, what you can learn in this case is that sometimes the government changes their mind and unfortunately in this case when they changed their mind the repercussions were that they decided an individual should pay that price, and i think that that is a scary place for entrepreneurs. >> yeah. >> i think people need to be careful of working with regulators if this is where they're going to act. >> where can we get information about liberty balls if we want to support you and enjoy the great toys. >> this is a product called liberty products. some t-shirts, other stuff.
we want people to go to united we ball.org and purchase products 16789 products. 100% of the profits goes to dehe fending the lawsuit. really, the issue and what we're fighting for is a lot more than just my legal fees. there's this idea of limited liability for individuals which we're trying to protect and maintain. we hope people support it. >> greg, thank you so much. for all small business owners for speaking out. >> thank you. 28 minutes after the hour now. imagine this. you're flying 36,000 feet above the atlantic ocean and you hear the pilot say, may day. and remember this scene from "mrs. doubtfire." >> one more thing. oh, no. >> well, these iconic moves just saved one mom's life. the incredible story next. ♪

friends." here's carrie underwood, "jesus take the wheel." an appropriate story. >> not allowed. jesus is not allowed. >> not on buses. what's going on with bus drivers and buses. remember a few weeks ago in minnesota where you had one bus driver, george nathanial, a pastor and a bus driver. he got in trouble for leading the kids there in some songs and some prayers while he would drive them to school. they said, no. he got fired as a result of it. they said it's a violation of the first amendment. you can't do this. >> we would start with a song. the kids who wanted to pray alongside me would do so. i never forced any of them to do that. we do have this. we start out with a song. then each person will pray if they want to pray. if they don't want to pray, they don't have to pray. then i will pray and ask them if they want to join me in prayer. just give them something constructive and positive to go to school with. >> by the way, he says, mr.
nathanial who's a pastor of a couple of churches outside of minneapolis, he asked the parents. this is my custom. this is what i do. the point is, you could argue, the point is the intolerance. he lost his job. even though christians are told, you must be tolerant. you're intolerant. my experience, a pretty tolerant group actually. the intolerance shown is incredible. zero tolerance. >> it often doesn't come from the parents or kids, outside groups, outside pressure. it's happened again. not just this guy in minnesota. now it's happened at rutgers university in new brunswick, new jersey. stan, the rutgers bus driver, was -- he was leading some folks in some prayers at certain points during the bus trip but one girl who was in a wheelchair, he just reached over and touched her and asked that god heal her. he just reached over and said, god bless you, wanted to heal
her. now he's in trouble as well for doing this. >> is this the worst thing a bus driver has done? >> wouldn't you be worried? as a parent i'm worried about the bus driver smacking kids around, smoking crack before they drive, leaving children in the bus, falling asleep at the wheel. those are the bus drivers i'm concerned about. the ones who say prayers and sing christian songs are not a threat to my kids. >> now there's a petition by the rutgers students. they put this up on change.org. stan, the rutgers bus driver that we all know and love recently resigned from his position. the rutgers community is speculating that pressure from the university had to do with his decision. let's get our beloved champ back. currently has 7,000 signatures. >> you can understand why. you mentioned the bus drivers leaving the kids on the school bus or falling asleep behind the wheel. >> that happens all the time. >> i had a bus driver in elementary school that would
sing rap songs. vanilla ice. >> did you sing along? >> of course i did. of course i did. why do you think i know every rap song that comes on from the '90s, from bus 353. >> would you be offended if your child's bus driver prayed on the way to school? especially if he got your permission to do it. let us know on our facebook page, ffweekend. go there and we'll read them live. >> we have live stories. is rutgers protecting another bullying coach. the dad accusing his son's coach of bullying him in a study session speaks out for the first time. >> the lady that was doing the study hall said it was like the worst behavior she's seen in 13 years. whether or not he was going to play, that's the coach's call, but to be able to be abusive and put him through a lot of things that are unnecessary, that's our complaint. >> the players, javon tyree says the abuse began when he was

the president made the decision to turn the war around in afghanistan. as for force recommendations, general petraeus and mcchristle recommended 40,000 as the minimal force and he provides 25% less, 30,000. a decision that has handcuffed us to this day. 18 months later, clayton, he makes a decision to take that force out of there prematurely and over the objections of then general petraeus who was commanding our forces in afghanistan. then the last time was in 2011 when general lloyd alston who was commanding our forces in iraq made a recommendation to keep a residual force or stay-behind force of 24,000. the president's personal envoy came in to negotiate with malaki on the table. he knew that wasn't serious and negotiations broke down and we wound up leaving nobody there and it was one of the most significant national security strategic blunders this
administration has made. so it has huge national security consequences rejecting these what i think are very reasonable recommendations by his war time commanders. >> we heard from over 200 high level ranking military members leaving, being forced out. what do you think is behind this? >> well, i don't think there's any evidence that there's some kind of conspiracy to remove military commanders. i mean, when i look down at the senior military commanders who have left, some because of personal decisions and some because of performance, the fact of the matter is they have been replaced by very, very capable people and who are the best available who are very experienced. so i know there's a narrative out there about that, but i don't believe the evidence supports it, clayton. >> others have said though that this is an example of social experimentation in fact at the center for military readiness. what's going on with the weakening of the military is
radical social experimentation with the military and that's what the president is behind. do you buy that? >> yeah, i do think there is a serious move, you know, in terms of integrating women into combat roles where we have never done that before and where there's plenty of evidence to the contrary about it. it breaks down a cohesion in our organizations and there is a physicality to those combat roles. i'm talking about direct combat day in day out. i'm not talking about flying airplanes or driving trucks, i'm talking about day in, day out fighting. i do believe there is a movement in that direction, and i -- many of the senior commanders don't agree with that and certainly guys like me don't either. >> the president on the campaign trail long said he would listen to his senior commanders. that's where he would be most informed. has he lived up to that promise? >> well, the evidence doesn't support that. i think there's always been unfortunately some kind of a strain there. these decisions have
consequences. i mean, clayton, can you imagine if president roosevelt told eisenhower, i'm going to hold back 45,000 of your 170,000 invasion force into norman did i -- >> right. >> -- what the consequences of that would be. >> catastrophic. catastrophic we all know. >> exactly. general jack keene, always great to see you here on "fox & friends." thank you for your analysis. we appreciate tnchts good seeing you, clayton. we love hearing from you at home. has the president helped or hurted us on twitter. also coming up here on the show, did you know a magazine can be used as a make shift splint or a dash of pep jr. can stop the bleeding? we have the strange but true health solutions you can't miss. all this restaurant owner wants to do is honor the military by hanging flags outside of his business. the city says they must come down and you won't believe this ♪ and the statue of liberty started shaking her fist ♪ ♪ and an eagle will fly

soap. they have found regular soap does as effective a job as any bacterial soap. they've found long term, antibacterial soap may do more harm because it keeps them away. >> and we can use honey? if you have a cut, you can take a little dash of honey. you can apply it to the cut and it will naturally go to work killing off some of that potentially wound infecting bacteria. >> what about marmalade or raspberry preserves? >> i wouldn't recommend that. >> just honey. >> any english muffin topping. >> finally, groom your stash. >> that's right. we're right in the middle of movember. every november guys grow out their facial hair to support

nice to see you. it's sunday, the 17th of november, 2013. i'm anna kooiman. another casualty of obama care. first we learned millions will lose their coverage, and now doctors are getting hit. but will this president's fix fix this. and taking the christ out of christmas and the toys, too. one school forced to cancel a toy drive for needy kids because critics say it promoted christianity and threatened to sue. would he have all the appalling details coming up. north america's mayor gets the "saturday night live" treatment but which is funnier, the real thing or the spoof? >> this is how i have been acting. it is not indicative of my
position of mayor in this great town of torrone tow. >> i've got what you asked. >> dang. >> "fox & friends" hour two starts right now. hey, welcome, everyone. >> good morning. >> "fox & friends" on this sunday morning. thank you so much for waking up with us. >> that is the lovely and talented tucker carlson, that is the lovely and talented anna kooiman and i am morris. alec baldwin, we know you've been tracking his whereabouts. i think he's going into hiding. he may be quitting television and media forever. >> which means he'll have more time to rome the streets of manhattan threatening people. you'll want to stay in tune for that scary story. first, obama care. the president promised you could keep the plan you liked but also the doctor you liked. that promise looks like it's bumping up against reality this morning. united health, which is one of the largest health care
providers this morning, has dropped thousands of doctors from their insurance plan. the reason, obama care. they're getting less money from the federal government in reimbursement from medicare and they have no choice but to fire these doctors. >> this will hit mostly elderly patients, those who have been with their doctors for a long time. in some instances as "the wall street journal" reports, are getting cancer treatment and may have to come out of pocket on their own. i love this point. they can keep their own plan if this, members may be able to see terminated doctors if they pay an out of network fee or pay 100% of the costs themselves. so let me get this right. you keep your plan, you get to pay an extra fee and pay 100%. is this a plan at all? >> it's a great plan. we had andrew mangioni of the association of mature american citizens. he was explaining the chaos in the insurance industry after the rules and obama's revision to
the rules. what happens next we asked him. here's what he said. >> it would be a logistical nightmare to have insurance companies reissue plans for millions of people switching them back to the plans. think about it, the process itself is staggering. think about the claims people. which claims would they be paying and for what plans? think about the premiums that are going to be charged. which plan's going to be in force? what type of coverage will be there? this is just for a temporary fix. i hope that the president and the administration really hope isn't coming up with this scheme to now blame insurance companies when they dump this logistical nightmare on their lap in order to take some covera away from te affordable care act. yeah, there's definitely some politics involved here. >> it's heartbreaking. think about your grandmother having to deal with this. we all know somebody who fits in that category. aetna warned in october even before the president has been having to backtrack on all of
this that they expected slow growth to happen during 2014 in their medicare advantage as well. >> here's a footnote to the story. the white house, of course, has promised that the website will be up and running by the end of this month, november 30th. kathleen sebelius told congress that. it's unlikely to happen. here's the standard they're applying. 80% of the people going on the website will be able to get website. >> that's their standard. >> 80% of the people who come to our website will be able to buy something. >> i saw that this morning and about fell out of my chair. i tweeted that at 3:00 in the morning. 80%. >> their talking point is the vast majority. it's not everybody, the vast majority. one in five will be pulling their hair out even more as if the process isn't tangled enough. >> well, if you think that rollout has been botched, what about common core? this was set to be the fix for the dissaskatchewkatchewan --
dissaskatchewan trous no child left behind. around any duncan has some words for you parents out there if you are wore lid about this and have some problems with it. he says basically it's your fault that your -- take a look what he actually said. it's fascinating to me that some of the push back is coming from some sort of white suburban moms who all of a sudden their child isn't as brilliant as they thought they were and their school isn't quite as good as they thought they were and that's pretty scary. >> pretty scary. hey, white lady, your kid's dumb. here are two questions. what does race have to do with this? race is not at the center of this conversation. doesn't matter if the lady is white or black. doesn't matter. bizarre thing to say. we know a lot better for your kids than you do.
hey, parents, you think you know what your kids should be learning in school? shut up and obey. >> these standards, if you're not familiar with them, they are in many ways problematic. chapters in these textbooks that focus on islam and footnotes paid towards christianity. when you say two plus two equals six, they're not being corrected to get the right answer. that's your problem as your child is not as brilliant as you thought. >> the problem is the secretary of education, former head of chicago schools just explained it, white suburban moms think their kids are brilliant but they're not. that's the problem nkts so they're complaining and that's the crux of this issue. >> unbelievable. that's so revealing. that is pulling the curtain back. you want to know what they think about you, about america, here's what they really think. >> let us know what you think about these new common core standards coming up on the show. we have some headlines for you to get to. >> we'll get to those on your sunday morning. two navy sailors from "u.s.s.
chancellorville" will be treated for burns as a drone hit their ship. the ship is back at base in san diego where officials will assess the damage and investigate how all this happened. tragedy at penn state where a 20-year-old student athlete has died after falling from the balcony of an apartment building. connor mcmanus was alone when he tumbled from the ninth floor. preliminary investigation indicates drugs and alcohol were factors here. mcmanus which is was a member of penn state's track and field team. overnight at least five people hurt at the los angeles memorial coliseum when the usc team won over stanford. one person had a broken leg, another hurt during a fall and five were hurt during the game. all ten were taken to the hospital to get checked out. a heartwarming reunion for a military family in south carolina. >> hey, boys. i've got your supper.
paul carroll is a cardiologist and member of the national guard. he surprised six boys after a six-month deployment in afghanistan where he was tending to wounded soldiers. >> one of the hardest things is having that sense of separation and you lose a sense of connectedness with your family. >> just a few hours earlier he surprised his 13-year-old son at a school assembly. oh, there you go. look at him running up giving him a big hug. >> all right. let's check in with greg this morning. i always give him a morning hug before the show. that's why he's always in a good mood. >> that's why my back hurts. >> give you an adjustment. >> we need video. you don't want to see it. here's the big storm across parts of the west. it was snow across the mountains up to two feet in a few locations. the energy of that storm is moving into the central part of that country and is bringing a setup for some severe weather. out in front we have significant
rain. maybe some quick localized flooding. we have very, very warm and sticky air that's being pulled up from the south and the cold air coming in from the north and a really, really strong jet stream. that means all the ingredients are set up for a severe weather outbreak and potentially some significant tornadoes. i think some of the tornadoes we'll be talking about potentially are the longer and longer lived tornadoes. they cause more damage. if you are in places around eastern illinois through much of i indiana, you need to watch this. it will get going around midday. future radar and how this is going to break down. we'll continue to see the rain move through. it's around the 1:00 time frame that you see individual cells across parts of illinois. those are the ones potentially that can pretty quickly become tornadic and stay that way for a few hours. by tonight it becomes a squall line with strong winds. the first few hours of this event we'll be talking about pretty significant tornadoes
happening. they're the ones that can cause damage and could be a big story for us tomorrow. >> thanks, rick. >> thanks, rick. taking christ out of christmas. who suffers? kids and the school. one school canceled a christmas toy drive because it faced a threatened lawsuit from something called the american human association which sent a letter to the association saying don't do this or we'll sue. the school doesn't have the money to defend itself from the lawsuit so they canceled the drive. >> it sounded like the costanza fake drive. the human fund. he said here's what they have to say. this letter serves as a notice to policy making school officials of the east point academy's unconstitutional conduct and as a demand that the school terminate all promotions, sponsorship, endorsement or affiliation with operation christ mass child immediately. so raising toys, getting toys for needy kids this holiday season. >> you have to take the christ
out of christmas in every way possible, even when you're teaching your kids to do something right. the nice things that families are trying to do, you're probably at home thinking what am i going to do on thanksgiving? what am i going to do that's charitable? take the kids to the soup kitchen or do something nice. >> there's no assignments related to this as the piece points out. no graded assignments related to it. they're not being forced to read religious materials in the boxes when they receive the toys. there's no other promotional materials associated with it. yes, it's going to an evangelical christian ministry, it's just the toys. >> taking the toys out of christmas, especially when they're meant for poor kids. there's nothing humanist about that. >> look at the joy on these kids' faces. come on. what are our kids in america learning from seeing these pictures learning they had a hand in the joy. >> they didn't file a lawsuit, they didn't get a court order, all they did was threaten a lawsuit. the mere threat was enough.
such is our legal system that the school made a calculated decision that we can't afford this. we need the money to educate kids. we can't defend ourselves against a lawsuit. they backed off in the face of a threat of it. >> you almost can't blame the school. they are trying to educate the kids. >> yeah. no money as it is. let us know what you think about this. weigh in on our facebook page as well. ffweekend. we have a separate facebook page on the weekdays. we're ffweekend. >> and twitter. >> we'd love to have you join us. 12 minutes after the hour. the president facing tough questions about his credibility. alan west says he should be. he created the mess. remember we showed you this yesterday. alec baldwin foaming at the mouth. why he says this is justified. he's threatening america this morning. we're going to tell you what he said. ♪ i'm a rocket man
that's the sound of car insunce companies these days. here a cheap, there a cheap. everywhere a cheap... you get it. so what if instead ofjust a cheachoice, you could make a smart choice? like esurance for example they were born online and built to save people money from the beginning. that's what they've always ne.
not just somhing they...cheep about. that's insurance for the modern world. esurance. now backed by allstate. click or call. well, from common core to the rocky health care rollout, and yrocky is an understatement. the president has taken an undeniable hit. a recent poll said that the president isn't honest or trust worthy. the question is can he regain his credibility or is it gone forever? here to weigh in is lieutenant colonel allen west. thanks for joining us. >> thanks a lot. >> is there any way for the president to get back what credibility he had after obama care? >> no, i think it would be very difficult for him to do that, tucker. it's not just the obama care.
your whole show this morning has been talking about a series of lies and deceit and loss of credibility being with the obama care and the lie about keeping your health insurance. common core is not something that was brought up through legislative means but this major reformation of education policy in the united states of america was basically something implemented by the administration. you talk about benghazi and the lives that were there about a crude video being the impetus behind a spontaneous attack. now we know this terrorist attack and the president knew it was a terrorist attack. general keane talked about the lack of trust between the president and his commanding generals. this is a series of things that has come to a head, a seminole moment. the president, i don't think he understands. i think he believes more campaigning and more political speaches are going to save him but that's not the case this
time. >> the white house said it first. it had no idea, it was shocked by the fact that some people lost their health care plans despite the promise that they could keep them. anyone who looked carefully would have known that. where were the press? where were news organizations? shouldn't they have been digging into obama care and reporting this out before it happened? >> well, there is no doubt that the media has provided some type of protective shield for the president, but now when you have 5 million americans that have lost their insurance coverage and their cancellation notices going out, they cannot continue to perpetrate that lie. the truth is becoming very, very evident. again, you see a president that continues to say, i did not know. i was unaware. that erodes your credibility. tucker, one of the things you haven't talked about is the destabilizing of the middle east. the lack of any type of clear strategic foreign policy as well. >> right.
>> now our former allies such as egypt, saudi arabia, have lost total confidence. egypt is going into negotiations with vladimir putin and talking about promising them a naval base. >> it's unbelievable. i watch pretty carefully. what is our policy? are we against it? totally muddled. things have gotten so bad, "the new york times," even one of his most consistent cheerleaders, this obama care thing probably not working very well. they gave him the back of their hand. the worst thing they could muster which is obama care is like katrina. what do you think of comparing obama care to hurricane katrina? is that a valid would you say? >> well, that shows you the desperation because you have to once again invoke the name of george w. bush, but the difference is that hurricane katrina was a natural disaster. what we are seeing is a man-caused disaster if i can borrow the phrase from janet napolitano. president obama has inherited
his own mess. being that our economy, unemployment situation, the creation and expansion of a welfare nanny state, national security policy, failure of obama care, this common core. all of these things are coming to a head right now and, you know, it emanates from one single individual. if the president really i'm going to say something pretty profound, if the president wants to regain his credibility, he probably needs to look at, you know, seriously coming before the american people and saying, you know, i have not been up to this job and i think that you're getting close to him probably saying he should resign. >> yeah. i don't know. i'm not going to hold my breath for that. that would be an honest move. colonel, thanks a lot for joining us. i appreciate it. >> pleasure. thank you so much, tucker. he's only 19 years old but his dreams are big. meet the college student who says he wants to be chicago's next mayor. and it's getting a lot of attention, but is the movie "best man holiday" really worth

>> essentially there's been a lot of press, a lot of paparazzi that have been following him and his wife. this is following a stalking case that had gone to trial last week. then he's yelling at a fox 5 reporter, linda schmidt who we had on the show for allegedly trying to knock out his wife with a microphone. we played you the tape. >> bleep. >> he's cursing at her. linda schmidt came on the show. >> he has no basis for any charges being filed against me whatsoever. he has not filed any charges. in fact, the nypd came up to me after he finally left with his wife, they came up to me to ask me if i was okay. if i had been hurt in any way. >> wow. >> so that's how we found ourselves in this position. this hangs over america, ladies and gentlemen. alec baldwin threatening to leave show business. >> a small piece of me actually really does feel for him. it stinks that he's treating the press this way and all of that,
but the paparazzi, he can't walk his dog. >> they're awful. >> they are in his face. >> no, they're awful, awful. linda schmidt, however, is not one of them. she is an actual reporter and a very nice person. to treat her that way -- >> and covering the trial, by the way, that involves him. and, you know, there are many high profile celebrities that live in new york city that the paparazzi ignores on a regular basis. it's almost as if he enjoys it going up to them and smiling. >> if you want the cameras to stay away from your apartment, as a reporter said, we know the home address of every single celebrity in new york. we are not camped outside of their houses. why? they don't come out and act like mental patients. >> sarah jessica parker doesn't live far from me. i've seen multiple days when the nanny is walking her children to school. these little kids have to grow up with it. >> they're looking for you.
>> you don't have to act like that zbles' blaming congress. congress is the problem. you the american people. our national political process. what do you think? would you be happy to see alec baldwin get out of entertainment or would you be saddened? let us know on our facebook page. we have a separate facebook page. ffweekend. go to facebook.com/ffweekend. well, this morning president obama preparing to rally supporters to help bail out obama care. he will give an online speech to the group organizing for action tomorrow. who are they and what does this all mean? peter doocy is live in washington, d.c., to break it all down for us. hey, peter. >> reporter: that's right. there's going to be a conference call with president obama talking to anybody who wants to listen. it's all being put together by organizing for action. this is a political group that exists only to support president obama's agenda and the invitation for this event features the following statement from the president. quote, i have just over three
years left as president and there's a lot left on my to do list. that's why i want to talk with you. you're the ones purting in all the time and effort to achieve real progress and fighting to make the agenda american's voted for last fall a reality. the latest fox news poll shows that only 36% of voters right now approve of president obama's handling of health care and that number is down 9 points compared to just a month ago. at the white house this week president obama said he knows he's got some work to do. >> i'm just going to keep on working as hard as i can around the priorities that the american people care about. i think it's legitimate for them to expect me to have to win back some credibility on this health care law in particular and on a whole range of these issues in general. >> so that was thursday. so far republicans have not let up in their criticism of the sloppy rollout of the health
care law. >> president obama's so-called apology was as phony as his fraudulent marketing of obama care. he seemed to be saying he was sorry americans actually believed him but took no responsibility for their plight. >> invitation for tomorrow's event says it's been a while since president obama has within able to do something like this. it will all begin at 8:15 p.m. >> campaigning? >> exactly. thanks, peter. live for us in d.c. this morning. now to the rest of your sunday morning news headlines. i need to warn you that this video you're about to see is quite disturbing. a terrifying and deadly new game has teenagers targeting people to knock them out in one punch. videos of recent attacks have gone viral on youtube. assaults are on the rise. the new york police department is investigating a series of attacks in jewish neighborhoods as possible hate crimes. in other cities, at least one victim has died from their

bark was bigger than their bite. a man walks into an arizona home uninvited and is scared off by two small dogs. the homeowner says he thought it was his wife and kids returning home except the dogs wouldn't stop barking. he peeked out the window and that's when he realized a stranger was trying to enter the home. >> i asked him, hey, why did you enter my home? and then he told me, i wanted to get some water. >> yeah. >> just thirsty. want some quality h 2 o. >> phoenix police are investigating. >> i think we've all done that. we've randomly just gone to people's homes, broken in, needed a glass of water, right? >> sure. then the dogs come and scare you off. >> it's a dry heat. in arizona, that's a problem. >> i need water. 120 degrees outside. >> i feel like all of these crazy stories are happening in

dean, were you surprised when you heard from the city? >> well, you know, darren contacted me and advised me that he received citations in the mail, and when he told me it was about us flying our flags, i was just devastated. and we don't understand why we are being told we can't do that when we honor and we respect our law enforcement, fire, and military. >> right. you see all these beautiful flags up there. it's on your personal business. darren, what did the city say to you and what has been the response? >> well, i kind of got blindsided by it when the mailman brought me certified mail because the gentleman that wrote the tickets didn't come -- have no guts to show up in our restaurant and hand them to me personally. i was actually blindsided by the whole thing. since that's happened, you know, i just -- it's not right. so that's why i contacted the news media and said, let's get
this thing straightened out on camera. and the response has been absolutely great from our supporters. we're away to come support our restaurant. and the city now was a violation in the right-of-way, now it's -- they're backpedaling a little bit, saying now it's a permit issue. i don't think i should have to pay money to fly the american flag or support our men and women in uniform. i refuse to. >> absolutely right. >> dean, what do you think this says about our country, that you weren't able to fly your flags? >> well, i think, you know, it's a shame. we have -- i mean, without our military, you know, protecting our borders, we have nothing, guys. we're just trying to be too small business owners that make a difference. >> yeah. >> i feel we do that, you know? no matter where we are. we love our military. >> well said. darren and dean, you guys are great americans. thank you for standing up to this and sticking to your guns on this. we appreciate it. >> clayton, we thank you for what you guys do.

of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar, but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® is different than pills. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once-a-day, any time, and comes in a pen. and the needle is thin. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adultth type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include:
swelling of face, lips, tongue, or throat, fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis), which may be fatal. stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza®. it's covered by most health plans.
hey, how you doing? good morning. it is sunday the 17th of november, 2013. i'm anna kooiman. it's another obama care promise the president just can't keep. if you like your doctor, too bad. so will the president's so-called fix fix this? then "jesus take the wheel?" two bus drivers get the boot for bringing prayers to their buses. what about the tolerance we were promised? no dice. your tweets and e-mails pouring in. >> can they put dice in the window? >> not christian. remember this scene from "mrs. doubtfire." >> help is on the way, dear.
one more. oh, no. >> oh, my god! >> ahhhh! >> that's how you get a shrimp out. these iconic moves just saved one mom's life. anybody hungry? "fox & friends" hour three starts right now. oh, so good. good morning. >> good morning, everyone. you know, dave, our floor manager, often has pretty terrible puns for a lot of the stories we do here on the show. he's on fire today. i think you need to go on tour, dave. you're doing a great job. >> he said he was all choked up about that. late news this morning. if you read the papers this morning, if you haven't, you should know that the white house has now promised that the white house.gov, the obama care website, will be fixed maybe not by the point they said it would at the end of the month and when it is, they are pledging that at least 80% of the people that go
to that website will be able to use it. >> one in five of you will still be pulling your hair out. >> 80%. >> that's a great goal. if you're jeff basoss or you're tim cook and you run apple.com, you want to sell an apple ipod, you want to make sure one out of five can't do it. >> 80% will be able to use that ipad. >> unbelievable. >> maybe that's better news. 80% is better to focus on. in school terms, that's a b, bins b minus. >> it's a c? >> 79% would be a c. 80%. now you have something else to look forward to because the promise that you can keep your doctor under any of these plans is not being held up any longer. in fact, united health care on friday was reported by "the wall street journal" would be losing or cutting thousands of doctors from its networks in the coming weeks all because they say money is being sapped from the medicare advantage program. they simply can't pay these doctors. >> this will be affecting the
elderly in particular. what's so unfortunate about this. we all have grandparents that go to the doctor a lot more than the healthy individuals. it's the healthy individuals, too, that of course the president is relying on. so that this obama care does not go into the death spiral that they talked about because it does rely on them to fund these elderly people. but they're losing their doctors essentially. thousands of them. >> this will accelerate as it has in countries with national health care plans like canada and great britain. the question is who would want to practice medicine. how many doctors do you know? how many are recommending to their children that they become doctors? probably not very many. 20 years from now we'll see a massive spike in the amount of foreign educated doctors. is that a good thing? it tells you something sad about the effect of obama care on our system. >> one thing he failed to mention when he was saying, look, this has been all on me. i fumbled the ball on this rollout. we'll give you an opportunity to
keep your plan. we said we weren't going to do that. we're going to do that. the president going through an executive decision. one thing he didn't mention at the podium was how much money this would actually cost. in fact, it could now cost you more to keep the plan that you want. we had andrew mangione who is with the association of mature american citizens on to talk about this. listen to andrew. >> it would be a logistical nightmare to have insurance companies reissue plans for millions of people, switching them back to the plans. think about it, the process itself is staggering. think about the claims people. which claims would they be paying and for what plans? think about the premiums that are going to be charged. which plan's going to be in force, what type of coverage will be there? this is just for a temporary fix. i hope that the president and the administration really hope isn't coming up with this scheme to now blame insurance companies when they dump this logistical nightmare on their lap in order to take some cover away from the
affordable care act. yeah, there's definitely some politics involved here. >> you didn't really think we would see a day like this. you have to feel for the insurance companies. they have three years to come up with a way to get around this. for six weeks they've been watching this unravel and now they have a month to try to put the toothpaste back in the tube. >> everybody's mad about the disaster that is obama care so far, especially democrats in the house who are about to take the punishment for it. as the president said on thursday night in a little noticed but remarkable moment, he said it's very important for us to remember that i'm not the only one who said if you like your plan you can keep it. they said the same thing up in congress, a little sharing of the blame took place. guess what, he was right. he wasn't the only one who promised that. members of congress did, too. watch this. >> you can keep the doctors you know and trust. you keep the insurance you have if you like it. >> if you like what you have today, that will be what you have when this legislation is
passed. >> i'm not going to support a health care reform plan that's going to take away health care that you've got right now or health care plan that you like. >> if you have coverage and you loo i can it, you can keep it. if you have your doctor and you like him or her, you should be able to keep them as well. >> if you have a doctor now, you have a medical professional you want, you get to keep that. if you have an insurance program or health care policy you want, the idea is to make sure you keep it. >> i like what i have. would you please leave me alone? and the answer is, yes. in fact, we guarantee it. >> in fact, one of our core principles, if you like the health care you have, you can keep it. >> people who like their insurance and their doctors, keep them. >> those individuals who like the coverage they already have will be able to keep their current plan. >> did they read it? i mean, i know it's this big, but did they read it? were they pushing the same talking points that came from the white house? were they ill informed or were they pushing lies?
>> there is some truth to what they were saying. in "the wall street journal" piece, you could keep your plan, if, here's the caveat, if they pay an out-of-network fee. if your doctor leaves or pay 100% of the costs themselves. so let that sink in for a moment. you can keep your plan if you pay 100% of the cost of your medical -- >> right. >> so you paid the insurance premium and then you pay the entire doctor's bill, too. >> right. that sounds like a great plan. >> great plan. now that's a premium plan. >> right. unbelievable. read the fine print. we'll have more coming up and we'll be talking to chris wallace host of "fox news sunday." two navy sailors are being treated for burns.

there's an updated evaluation of this that's come out from the storm prediction center and they have increased the bull's eye here for severe weather. this high risk area earlier they were thinking eastern illinois and western indiana, take a look at this. the high risk includes the entire state of indiana, western ohio, parts of michigan. a significant chunk of illinois. we could be talking about strong tornadoes, big tornadoes that are strong and last a long time. long-lasting tornadoes. those will start around the 1:00 time frame. it's all part of the energy that brought big snow across parts of the inner mountain west, washington and oregon. and parts of the rockies. we're still seeing the snow across the rockies. it's that energy that will pull out and meet up with moist air and warm air that we have across parts of the ohio valley. when we see that take off, this is a big threat. this is what you see in the spring, may time. you get those really big tornado outbreaks. that's what we're looking at.

he's the host of fox news sunday. chris, how concerned are democrats on the hill about what's happened over the last six weeks? >> oh, real concerned. there's nothing that focuses the mind of a politician than the prospect of an upcoming election. just look what happened in the house on friday. the upton bill. if you want your plan, you can keep your plan. this would, in effect, gut obama care. it not only said that people that have policies that have been canceled can keep them, it would also say the insurance company could sell those policies to new customers and the point of that is that means if they take those policies to the individual market, they're not getting into the obama health care exchanges. that tears at the whole fabric of what the whole obama care business plan is. 39 democrats, even after the president's announced so-called fix on thursday, 39 democrats still went in the house with the republican bill which, as i say, would largely gut obama care against the objections of their
own party. they need political cover. i'm not sure how much this vote is going to give them. that indicates how concerned they are. >> what sort of -- do you see any light of day for this bill making it through the senate at all? i'm sure the white house has been on the phone with democrats in the senate saying, hey, watch out for this? >> not a chance. they've smartend up enough to read it themselves and know this is a poison pill. doesn't mean it's necessarily a bad bill. if you like obama care, you don't like this bill. i don't think that harry reid will even bring it up for a vote. and even if in some alternative universe he did, the white house has already promised to veto it. >> chris, why then if it's not going to get through the senate and if it did the president said he would veto it, why do these 39 democrats in the house vote alongside it? was it just so that they could have that vote on the record for 2014? what's the deal? it's not just.
when you go back to your district, you can say i voted with this bill that would have allowed people to keep their policies, would have allowed new customers to get these policies, get outside of the exchanges. you know, at this point, that's the best i can. it's a free political vote and that's not a bad thing for democrats who feel they're in some trouble right now. >> who do you have on the show? ben nelson, former senator from nebraska. >> it's interesting, tucker, because he is the head of the national association of insurance commissioners, interestingly, right after the president announced his so-called fix, the industry, both the insurance businesses and also the regulators, came out, were very negative about this, said it could raise premiums, destabilize the markets. remember, real people dealing with these real issues have had three years that they've been trying to build structures based on the law. now the president says, woops, never mind.

tucker. thank you, clayton. well, what kind of state do you think this country will be in? in a recent poll 80% of americans said they think the u.s. will be a more dangerous place. how can our top military leaders stop this from becoming true. the national forum of defense was held at the reagan library. fox news contributor frank luntz was there. he joins us with a recap. thank you for coming on. this was a bipartisan group of people who know a lot about national security. what was the take away from this? what was the headline would you say? >> it was kind of frightening because whether you're republican or democrat, whether you're an elected official or military expert, the consensus was very strong that these cuts being made thanks to is he sequester are undermining america's national security and in particular research and development which is essential for america remaining number one. these experts believe that that
isn't happening and thanks to sequester it isn't going to happen and, tucker, when you make those cuts, you can't make it back. >> right. r and d is not something you can turn on and off at will. it's something that takes years. you can mess it up by stopping that. what are the threats? there doesn't seem to be consensus about what the main threats are. north korea, the threat to the middle east. what did this group think? >> it's interesting. the most attended panel were the threats coming from asia. japan's seeming decisions to go it alone are hostile to america, but not having continence in american leadership. china is expanding. that was the theme. the military are careful not to criticize the president or the administration because they know they could lose their jobs, but the independent experts, one after another, said that we are in a weaker state right now than any time since the carter years and that world leaders don't
have faith in our decision-making ability, in our planning for the future, and once again i go back to the sequester cuts, that they're undermining our capabilities over the next ten years in asia and also in fighting terrorism because you don't know where it's going to come from, you don't know what it's going to mean, and there was genuine concern and fear about the decisions that are being made right now. >> interesting. so the threat comes primarily from an expansive china and also from rearming japan, but china really. how often do you hear political figures say that out loud? it doesn't seem to be where the focus is. >> well, you don't hear it from the military leaders and you'll occasionally hear it from poll tisch shangs, the objective. don't measure the way things are today in 2013. it was to take a look at what's happening over the next ten years. the american people understand this. tucker, one of the key points here is if something bad happens to us, we'll blame the military and we'll blame the politicians.
what these people are saying is if you want us to do our jobs, if you expect 100% perfection, which is what dempsey, the head of the joint chiefs has said, 100% perfection, you better give us the tools to make that happen and right now they're not getting the tools. >> that is the basic point of government. that's why you have a government, is to keep people from taking over your country, to keep your country safe, not to run your health care system. to have a strong military system. the consensus was we're falling down on the job with that. >> i point it out to those who are watching today who support the tea party. to those who think you can get away with the cheap defense, it doesn't work. we have plenty of examples over the last 50 years where cuts in the military have led to crises and investment in the mail tir ri has kept us strong. tucker, this is a dangerous world. the public sees it. you have to make the investments today to secure tomorrow.
this is exactly what the constitution says is the first responsibility of government and that's what they all concluded at the reagan library. >> weak american defense invites aggression. frank luntz joining us. thank you for coming on. i appreciate it. >> thank you, tucker. taking the christ and the toys out of christmas. one school forced to cancel the toy drive because it promoted christianity. then, it's the latest fitness craze taking the world or parts of it by storm. it's as easy as knowing your abc's. anna kooiman here to demonstrate what we're talking about. ♪ ♪ ♪ life with crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis

progress and fighting to make the agenda americans voted for last fall a reality. the latest fox news poll shows that only 36% of voters approve of the way president obama has handled health care. that's down nine points since last month and the president says he knows he has some work to do. >> i'm just going to keep on working as hard as i can around the priorities that the american people care about. and i think it's legitimate for them to expect me to have to win back some credibility on this health care law in particular. and on a whole range of these issues in general. >> that admission from the president came on thursday, but republicans continue weekend to criticize the sloppy rollout of the affordable care act. >> president obama's so-called apology was as phony has his fraudulent marking of obama care. he seemed to be saying he was
sorry americans actually believed him, but took no responsibility for this is their plight. >> and tomorrow night's conference call with the president is being billed as a chance for an update about where things stand in the fight for change. back to you in new york. >> well, thank you very much, peter. so when your program collapses, give another speech. but take heart, there is a good news. the obama administration has assured the country that the website, the obama care website will be up and running by the end of this month. that may not actually happen. when it does, they are setting a targeted goal of 80% effective. they're saying it's 80% of the people that go on the website will be able to use it. that's their goal. >> that would be successful in their eyes. >> yeah. one out of five people won't be able to use the website, but 80% is good enough. i can imagine jeff bezos coming into an meeting saying to his board members, look, it's the holiday season approaching. if we can just get 80% of people what they need, that should be good enough. >> the other 20% will be an
error message. >> here is the other piece of this that is mind boggling. they're saying this performance standard that they're even putting forward is the first one they've had in 3 1/2 years. since they've started putting all of this together. yes. >> take heart, we finally know -- >> and they came up with it in late october. when did this thing come out? october the 1st. .they didn't even have a performance standard before that? >> the good news is they have a standard and the bad news is it's low. here is even worse news. you may lose your doctor. united health and dropping thousands of doctors from insurance plans because of obama care. they said they new government regulations are going to force us to drop thousands of doctors from insurance. this would affect the second promise you've heard from the administration, notice only can you keep your plans, but you can keep your doctors if you're not happy. >> "the wall street journal" is saying ten states were notified of being laid off of the plan,
some citing significant changes and pressures in the health care environment. but take heart in this, though. depending on their plan -- i love that united health medicare members, they say you may be able to keep your doctors. here is the caveat. you may be able to see your terminated doctor, the one whom you were told you couldn't see, if they paid an out of network fee. and then you have to pay 100% of the medical bill. so you pay a fee, then a 1100 -- i'm not making this up. this sounds like a joke. 100% of the cost themselves. so you're paying a -- >> why don't you just go to another doctor and then you wouldn't have to pay the fee. >> so you're buying the insurance premium, you're paying the fee and then you're paying for 100% of the services. >> wait a minute. i thought we were going to be able to keep our doctor, could you keep our insurance plan and then it was going to be cheaper. and what do you think is going to happen if people are paying more for their health insurance? they're probably going to make
sure they get the biggest bang for their buck, they're going to use it a lot more when you go to the doctor and a longer time you have to wait to try to get your appointment filled in the first place. >> after obama care, there is common core, which is the new federal education standards most of the states have bought into, meaning an awful lot of resistance. where is that resistance coming from? arnie duncan, a close friend of the president's former head of chicago school, he put a fine quote on this. it's fascinating to me, says secretary duncan, that some of the pushback is coming from white suburban moms who all of a sudden their child isn't as brilliant as they thought and their school isn't quite as good as they thought and that's pretty scary. >> i love how he uses the words it's fascinating to me. >> white suburban moms. what does race have to do with this? >> and it's parent all across the country who are outraged by this man, these new standards. have you heard about some of the standards? you haven't if you haven't
turned into what common core does. among some of the testing standards, we talked about this right before the break that two plus two equals four in the normal world, unless you live on jupiter or something. but if you answer six, you won't be graded poorly as a result of it. but because you tried to get the correct answer, you'll still be given -- >> it's all about the process, if you can explain it away, if you can explain how you got to six, you would be okay. last year they were slipping the real statement into worksheets. so it just seems to be one thing after the next after the next and maybe that is why parents are outraged about this and not because it's white suburban housewives. >> have you ever noticed that there's always a villain. it's always somebody's fault, always some group that isn't going along with the insurance companies, it's greedy wall street bankers. but there's always somebody they're blaming, some group that is getting in the way of progress. it's kind of scary when your government singles you out like that. >> we would like to hear from
white suburban moms this morning. join us on facebook. we've got some other headlines for you. >> yeah. two navy sailors from the uss chancellorsville being treated for minor burns after a drone crashed into its ship off the coast of california. the drone was being used to test the ship's radar during a dry run of the ship's xwat intat system. about 300 crew members were on board. officials will investigate the damage and assess what went wrong. brand new developments in the case of a missing family found in a shallow grave in the california desert. joseph mcstay, his wife, summer, and their two young sons were apparently murdered. one of the parents had their hands bound. experts say the shallow graves close in proximity to the freeway indicates it was likely not a professional hit. they vanished without a trace in 2010. surveillance video of four people walking across the border into mexico led investigators to
believe they may have left voluntarily and left on their own. police are now investigating how they ended up nearly a hundred miles from home and who may be responsible there. overnight, ambulances rushed to los angeles memorial coliseum when fine fans were hurt rushing the field after the upset win over stanford. one person suffered a possible broken leg, another hurt in a fall. another five people were hurt during the game. ten people taken to the hospital just to get checked out there, as well. look at that. all right. what is a shark doing in the middle of a lake? some prankster fooling their friend to see if he would fall for it. >> shark! shark. >> well, the shark was really just a guy in a scuba suit with a fake fin attached. >> what would you do in that moment? >> sometimes even when you know it's fake, you get scared. >> i get scared of fake snakes
and stuff. >> because we hear about these stories, like an alligator that shouldn't be in this type of area, this vooirenvironment and sometimes we see a dolphin that -- >> are there sharks in the potomac river? >> there are, but those are biological creations out of the some of the sewage and stuff. >> the bracish water. >> they were an amoeba when they were born. >> there's pinball machines under the hudson river, by the way. look it up. no lie. on a more serious note, we have big severe weather taking aim across the country today. this is kind to have rain that's ahead of the storm right now cutting across parts of the ohio valley. but the bulk of the energy is back behind this. and when that energy meets in with this moisture that's there, we're going to be dealing with a lot of severe weather. it's going to be a very windy day today, so all of this central part of the country dealing with winds 25 to 35 miles per hour, sustained, ongoing. 35 to 45 miles per hour
sustained ongoing as you get north across parts of the great lakes. but here is our severe setup and a couple of changes now. the slight risks extends all the way over towards parts of new england and new york city and down through philadelphia and much of new jersey and in towards the d.c. area. but it's this white and red area that is a much bigger concern. the red, i think we're going to be seeing some very strong winds. the white is where we're going to see some significant tornados. and i want to break this down just as the timing of this throughout -- say starting around noon. illinois, indiana, ohio, michigan right here. that's the bull's eye for it. the future radar, it's a simulation of what the future radar will look like. towards peoria, rock ford, around noon, it will be a quick moving line of storms. then cutting in towards indianapolis down towards anderson, past terre haute by around the 3:00 area. and then by this evening, i think it's going to become much more of just one strong, very
gusty squaw line. so that is where we're going to be timing. i think this noon to 6:00 time frame all across these states is going to be a really dangerous time. when these storms move so quickly, you oftentimes don't have a long tornado warning. you need good warning to make sure you get into your place. these could be moving so quickly you might end up with a 5 to 10-minute lead time in this, which gives you how much time you have to have your plans right now. >> at this point, you've been talking about it all morning, so we hope people are paying attention. thanks, rick. >> you bet. come up here on the show, democrats defecting. now jumping on a republican plan to fix obama care. will the public buy it? then getting into politics, we've got details. road closed? there's a guy...

there is no doubt that our failure to roll out the aca smoothly has put a burden on democrats, whether they're running or not. because they stood up and supported this effort through thick and thin. >> well, they were passionately for it before they were grievously concerned. .now they're adamantly against it. democrats are jumping when it when it comes to obama care. the white house seems to be in full panic mode as the president issues his second apology in as many weeks. >> but what about our senate? our next guest says that many of them made obama care happen and they also owe an apology to many people. katie is an editor and a fox
contributor. good morning, katie, how are you doing? >> good morning. i'm doing well, thank you. >> so do you think the american people are going to buy this or are they going to look back and say you may be voting for this now but you should have realize it before? >> i think that ship has sailed. they're not getting those plans back. even if the insurance companies km back and install some kind of going back and giving them their plans, they're not going to have the same plans that they did. second, this wasn't simply one or two democrats telling them they could keep their plans, it's the president of the united states and nearly a dozen democrats in the senate. and let's not forget the house promising these plans would not be lost. let's name names. who are the top offenders here? >> there's a couple. ten of them in the senate. it was hard to pair down a couple of them. we're going to start with number three and that would be senator from louisiana mary landrieu who provided one of the last votes for obama care to go through. without her vote based on a false promise, we may not have
the train wreck that we have today. number two, senate majority leader harry reid from nevada because he's blocked every single republican proposal to fix obama care and to help the american people to keep their plans and maybe to delay the individual mandate all for political reasons. and number one offender, hands down, is the senator from montana, max bachus, who wrote the bill, knew that millions of people would lose their insurance and went out there and said they would be able to keep their plans, anyway. and so those are the top three. but i should tell you that there's a list of all ten of the worst offenders here. >> do you think they're going to stay bum or do you think they're going to step up to it? >> i think they're trying to fess up to it, but not necessarily in a direct way. i mean, they're doing these things to kind of show that they care about getting people's insurance back, but they voted twice to get people to lose their insurance. first they voted to -- for obama care and then they voted against legislation that would allow
people to keep their plans because republicans introduced it. and so i -- i think that they're doing it through a show, not necessarily through something that will actually work. and let's not forget that obama care is not getting any better. so this so-called fix isn't really a fix. we still have the employer mandate next year. it's not like this is going to help when it comes to the rest of the problems obama care is going to cause for these same people. >> katie, thanks. we appreciate it. >> thank you. talk to you soon. coming up next, taking the christ and the toys out of christmas. one school is now forced to cancel a toy drive for poor children because critics claimed it promoted christianity. >> you can't make it up. then more kids ending up in the emergency room from eating too much super spicy snacks. like these. really? the critical information that could save your kids lives, next.
suffering from the flu is a really big deal. with aches, fever and chills- there's no such thing as a little flu. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so call your doctor right away. tamiflu treats the flu in people 2 weeks and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. so don't wait. attack the flu virus at its source. ask your doctor about tamiflu, prescription for flu.

they're giving themselves stomach inflammation as a result of eating so many spicy foods. >> so they're drawn to the flavors of these things, the art efficient spiciness of it. then they're winding up with gas triesis. what is that? >> an inflammation of the stomach. they decrease the ph of your stomach contents and that causes a lot of inflammation. that can be very, very painful. it causes this burning sensation of the stomach. as kids get this too many over time, it can lead t ulcers. >> so on just one of these, is this considered a serving? it is. >> so is it just eating one of these bags or is it multiple? >> it is multiple. if your kids want to have a snack once in a while, that's okay. just make sure they're not getting stomach discomfort afterwards, that they're only eat ago single serving size and they're into the experiencing anything like nausea or vomiting.
>> so maybe it's the fake stuff you shouldn't be eating in the first place because the snacks are unhealthy. frito lay says they're committed to ethical practices, which includes not marketing our products to children age 12 and under. we also do not sdooit decide which snacks are available on school campuses and do not sell snack products directly to the schools. what do you make of that? >> well, i think it's important that they not market these to small children, especially given these challenges that kids are having. we want the parents to be responsible for their kids, help them know what is a healthy amount of these snacks to eat, to offer them healthy alternatives. spicy foods are not bad for you when in moderation, especially if they're knot more natural than these artificially flavored foods the i guess if you have a colorful cartoon cheetah on the front, who is this being marketed for? chester the cheetah, is that for
36-year-olds? >> that's a good point. i'm attracted to that. one bag, not four of them. don't want to go to an emergency room. coming up, a scary new warning for the fda. some popular ne devices could kill you. details coming up about that. then we've been showing you this video, alec baldwin yelling at a reporter. had too much coffee, claiming that he's justified for all the yelling. he has a brand new threat for america. we'll read it to you when we come back. by the end of the day, my dogs were barking. they used to get really tired.

it's tragic in the sense that it is so clearly a projection of people's frustration about their government, their economy, their own spiritual bankruptcy. >> let's call this what it is. he can be quickly followed by jenean berethelo, barbra streisand. >> what you're saying is he's sort of like a pied piper. >> no, actually, what i'm really saying is i do sympathize with alec baldwin to this extent. i do think he is hound by some of these photographers in a way he shouldn't be. but his behavior is so over the top, so lacking decency, so nasty, so ill liberal that it's hard to be sympathetic to a guy who screams and uses nasty words like that. >> here is what happened in this -- you saw him cussing at linda schmidt, a fox 5 news reporter after there was a stalking trial going on this week that drew a lot of media
attention to him. and his wife. helaria told alec, allegedly, that this reporter, linda schmidt almost knocked her over with a microphone and had gone home and said that. and when he saw this reporter, he said are you the reporter that did this? and she said, no, i really didn't do that. that's when it got even worse. so to defend him, he was defending the honor of his wife, but that isn't even really the way that it went down. so him and his wife both seem to be having a lot of issues with the media and the way they handle these incidents. >> how pampas, though? if you don't stop, i will leave. >> but this guy can't even walk his dog. it really is unfortunate. it comes with the territory, sure. >> but you don't need to be as nasty as he is to people. he is really nasty to people. >> so did it actually -- did she get hit in the face with a microphone? linda schmidt on our show talked about it. >> he has no basis for any
charges being filed against mep me. the nypd came up to me after he finally left with his wife, they came up to me to ask me if i was okay, if i had been hurt in any way. >> wow. so we should shed a tear. alec baldwin makes millions of dollars in front of the camera all the time. even with at that pointthe capi commercials, go to our question of the days. facebook.com/ff weekend. david weighs in and says, no, no, there's never been a better camp of literal hiypocrishypocr. >> david says i'm sick of him and all of hollywood's antics. i left california .i'm a fifth generation california native. >> richard says, he owes the reporter an apology.
he judged the situation without seeing/knowing the truth. >> weigh in on the situation. can you -- not an outpouring. >> alec baldwin, you took it away. >> we have some headlines to get to, as well. a terrifying moment for passengers on a recent british airways flight headed to new york. the plane left london and was about 36,000 feet above the ocean when smoke began filling the cockpit. as the pilot was radioing for help, he accidentally hit the intercome system and so all passengers heard his mayday call. the plane landed safely. the coating on some of the guide wires used in heart procedures can break off causing severe injury or even death. this warning pertains to about 15,000 guide wires now being

child should be allowed under the protection of the first amendment. and ken says that constitution guarantees freedom of religion, not freedom from it. the war on religion needs to stop. if you don't like the program, don't period, period. and andrea e-mailing us saying if the effort is -- that's something we already talked about. those are your headlines. rick is standing by and ease outside. hey, crick. >> it's getting more and more concerning as we're seeing the surface data. take a look at the weather maps. first of all, the winds are whipping out of the south. if it comes from the south, that means the wind pulls up all that moisture from the gulf and the heats things up and makes the atmosphere very, very juicy. winds 25 to 35, sustained across a big chunk of the area. you have some rain that's pofd through parts of the area and we're looking at the threat for a tornado watch.
i think the first tornado watch of the day will be issued likely within the next hour or so. and that's eastern parts of missouri and then much of the state of illinois. so a lot of times you hear about severe weather and you think of it as an afternoon event as the day heats up. this is going to get started much earlier than a lot of the big events that we have. so people in missouri and illinois need to be watching that first and right now, actually. here is a look at how the forecast radar and temps play out. we'll put this into motion and see how things go. i think we'll start to see the first cells develop around noon across parts of central illinois, spreading throughout indiana and the afternoon. by the time we get towards, say, after sunset past dinnertime, we'll be talking about a strong wind event. winds will be over 60 miles per hour and that will cause a lot of damage, as well. but this big threat today is the idea that we're going to have large and long lived tornados. that high risk that you see, it's that white area that's been
issued by the storm prediction center, it's the second time that has been issued this year. generally you get it about three to fooim five times per year. this is only the second time that was issued in 2013. so conditions are ripe. everybody in this area needs to watch. we've got about 18 million people in that high risk zone, so a lot of people including big cities like chicago. >> even down in evansville, they have river boat gambling down there and boats on the river. coming up here on the show, the obama care debacle isn't breaking news here to us, but after its disastrous rollout, is the mainstream media occupation attention? >> and do you want to get away this holiday season? >> where are you going? >> we're going to miss the plane. >> did you count? >> 11 including me, five boys, six girls, and a partridge in a bear tree. >> where is kevin? >> the places that will have you running for the airport coming up in just a bit.

welcome back. if i like your plan, you can keep it. that's the promise the press has now figured out was not true as millions of americans lose their health care plan. >> while the law was being debated, if you like your plan, you can keep it. you said after that was signed, if you like your law, you can keep it. americans believed you, sir, when you said to them over and over. >> right. >> do you not believe, sir, the minor people deserve a deeper, more transparent accountability from you? >> so is this the turning point in president obama's second term and in his relationship with what has been a fahning press corps? good morning to you both. howie, is this a turning point?
>> it's absolutely a turning point, tucker, and you saw it in the confrontational nature of the press conference asked at that press conference. not because everybody is piling on the obvious failures of obama care, even the president not really denying that, but because the indictment has gotten broader now, talking about the president's credibility, whether this is a failure of liberalism and whether he can recover in his second term. is a permanent breach? >> i do. i definitely do. >> you do? >> yeah. because i think in a second term, it's been proven that it's very difficult to get trust and credibility back once you have broken that. i mean, the exception could be bill clinton, who popularity remained high after his scandal. but he didn't affect millions and millions of people in their pocketbooks, which is a lot different. you have president bush who with katrina was seen as very distant, not very connected, and
that hurt his second term. >> howie, it dawned on me this morning that everyone was surprised that obama care actually forced insurance companies to cancel these plans. but we knew a lot about obama care. the law is public. why in the last three years did no news organization get to that story? why didn't at the that i a close look at the what the law said and wra series of what it effects might be? >> i think there were a few organizations that questioned how this would work, would the in us younger generation sign up. but they were napping on this grandfather clause, but it is hard to predict a train wreck before it happens. once it did happen, i don't think there's any question that this president has gotten pummeled by the press in the last few months and deservedly so. >> so what's on the show today? i have an interview coming up with bill o'reiley. he talks about president obama. he says he thinks he's done some good things and he said sometimes he, o'reiley, goes too far in some of the high decibel
shout fest. he says many in the media hate him. we have a clip of that. >> but if you don't like me because you think i'm object knockus or you think i'm misguided politically, that's all right. but if you try to hurt me or my family or my enterprise, i'll come after you. >> howard kirk, lauren ashburn, thanks. take a look at this. two fishermen come to the rescue of a baby dolphin. their reward? a happy dance. look at that. and if you want to get away this holiday season -- >> where are you going? >> we're going to miss a plane. >> did you count that? >> 11 including me, five boys, six girls, six parents, and a partridge in a pear tree. >> we have a roster of places that will keep you running for the airport.
