3:02 am
six million americans have signed up for obamacare. what's interesting about that is they say six million signed up. we don'tç know how many have paid t. doesn't really count until you pay. we don't know how many people had policies before. i looked this morning in "the washington post" back in october, november of this year, they estimated between 7 and 15 million americans would have their insurance canceled last year. we don't know exactly how many people got their insurance canceled last year but if it's between 7 and 15 million, and right now 6 million have signed up, that's actually fewer people than had insurance six months ago. >> fuzzy math. how do you end up with that? they were trying to hit the 6 million mark. initially it was 7 million. they dovígraded it to 6 million. how did they they get this number? the president earlier this
3:03 am
month, do you remember him saying this? he said if you have a family where some people are citizens or legally here and others are not documented, the immigration people will never get that information. also saying earlier this month that healthcare.gov is not going to be used to try to find out somebody's status because it is not going to be checked there. south carolina congressman joe wilson said you lie back in 2009 that illegals wouldn't be covered. maybe he had a point. >> the president was speaking at the time. that was the controversy. it was his state of the union. but he probably was on the money. jeff sessions looked at the fact that the mexican consolate was being used toç sign people up. he said i've got three problems with this. one, the possibility that illegal immigrants could access federal subsidies which there's going to be a lot of subsidies handed out. number two, people here unlawfully will all of a sudden get coverage. that will be a bit of a problem. he said if you look at the way in which they're reaching out to the hispanic community because they have been not been reaching back, it is
3:04 am
amazing with obamacare is that unlike food stamps, unlike welfare, unlike unemployment insurance, when people want it, they get it. no one says i'd love to get unemployment insurance; i don't know how to do it. if people wantedç the affordable care act you shouldn't try to win them over, you shouldn't go on spanish-speaking sports radio shows and desperately try to get people to sign up. there seems to be a fundamental reluctance among americans to understand it and put their name underneath it. >> i think americans looked at it and don't like the price. it is too expensive, can't afford it. at a number of mexican consolates they're signing up, could be mexican nationals, could be people of mexican descent for the affordable care act. vice president joe biden was with the hispanic chamber of kpherpbs yesterday and he said millions of illegals are
3:05 am
already americans. >> you know, 11 million people living in the shadows, iç believe they are already american citizens. these people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to be able to contribute fully. and by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are already americans, in my view. >> in his view. maybe not legally but in his view. >> that's a little bit of an issue. can you imagine being a stafr for the vice president reading the copy going that is not exactly the way we've got it down. i have no idea what he's doing. damage control. illegal immigrants you've been here so long, let's call yourself citizens and go out and vote. let's talk about what else the president is doing. today heç is going to be in saudi arabia at which time he's going to be announcing his plan to provide rebels with some type of smalms in ordt annihilated by the government of assad. the big story yesterday,
3:06 am
the president of the united states met with pope francis for the first time. they went behind closed doors for 50 minutes at which time, to the best of their knowledge and in the view of transparency both sides gave their impression of how it went and what was discussed. >> that's kind of new because usually the vatican doesn't release what was talked about because it's cordial and for the most part the president wanted a pop from the pope when it comes to ratings because the pope's -- >> he wanted a pop from the pope? >> he wanted a pop from the pope in the polls so he wanted a photo op. that's why heç gave the pope these carrot seeds and other stuff. what's interesting is the fact that the vatican came out and the president, first of all, said one thing and the vatican said no, here's what happened. the vatican's recollection of the meeting was, quote, in the concept of bilateral cooperation between church and state there was a discussion on questions of particular relevance to the church in that country,
3:07 am
such as -- here's the important part -- the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection. that's the important part; right? what does the president say the important part is? something different. look. >> i wouldç say that the largest bulk of the time was discussing two central concerns of his. one is the issues of the poor, the marriage tphalzed -- the marginnized, those without opportunity and growing inequality. we didn't talk a lot about social schisms in my conversation with his holiness. >> the second time the right to life and religious freedoms are making headlines this week with hobby lobby going to supreme court although it won't be decided until june. isn't it interesting that president obama basically said we talked all about the plight of the poor and conflicts and the world and peace on earth and the pope said that's not what we
3:08 am
talked about. the thing that is mind-boggling to me about it is this wasç announced on vatican radio that this was stkpw-g to be on the -- this was going to be on the agenda and it was a long anticipated meeting. >> rick santorum weighed in on the significant of this meeting and why it matters. >> clearly what the president and his, the report about what the meeting was about is trying to do is trying to say there's solidarity between the president and the pope on these important issues when in fact, you know, the vatican is saying something quite different. i have to believe that the president knew that the pope was going to mention religious liberty, he was very important of life and marriage to the pope, and the president was hoping he could use his spin machine in america to dominate the air waves. >> last night on the special report program, charles krauthammer said who are you going to

3:16 am
but some would think america is in retreat. for example, the united states is about to surrender control of the internet, which we invented. a new poll finds, by fox news, that 66% of you think that is a badç move. what are the ramifications? can we stop it? could it leave to censorship. we've got a new fox news special out called "surrendering america." it investigates america -- let me try that again. it investigates fox -- we do an investigation. correspondent james rosen can make sense of this and joins us now. first off, when you talk about surrendering the internet, what does that mean? >> there is a little known office here in washington in the department of commerce. it is called the national telecommunications and information administration, ntia. it long had a contract over a nonprofit based out in los angeles. that nonprofit is called ican, the internet corporation for signed names and numbers.
3:17 am
it controls domain names andç dresses, those dot-coms and dot-govs. they announced earlier this month it asked ican to separate itself from our department of commerce. a governing structure that would be global in nature and encompass quote unquote stakeholder. ican said it won't accept something that would go to another government or group of governments. despite the contract the government has had over ican for so many years where passage of theç network is controlled by a loose network of international organizations but this is a concern for a lot of people. >> you handle one portion of the special, james. and that is what you look at. right now you talked to somebody, a specialist who had more clarity and tell us what is at risk.
3:18 am
>> ntia and supporters of this transition say it's been u.s. official policy since 1997 to eventually cede control over ican. they say the united states can demonstrate especially after the edward snowden era the need for the government to be free of government control. i spoke about that with a former senior advisor to president george w. bush. >> the obama administration argues that this is necessary because the internet now exists under the control of one government, and that's dangerous. there is some logic toç that, isn't there? >> i don't trust any over government, the chinas of the world, the russias of the world to control that which they seek to not have available even to their own population. i don't want america subject to others who are not as free and open as we are. >> the department of commerce contract with ican extends to september 2015. it can be extended if ican does not come up with a structure that is satisfactory to our department of commerce. >> that is one portion of
3:19 am
it. other portions of the special that is going to be airing, defunding nasa, reducing the military and canceling the missile shield. we're talking about getting rid of theç tomahawk missile as well as the hell fire missile and attacking energy. this is all part of a special that premieres tonight at 10:00. >> right. to finish the sentence that some kind of neurological event prevented you from finishing, the unifying theme of this special is if looks at whether the united states across a range of areas is surrendering its global leadership. >> essentially with your piece in particular, james, you look at what china has done with google, what turkey has done with google, how they're actually telling people you can't do this, they're banning youtube in certain nations, that we could all fall victim to if we don't get on top of it. you examine it as james

3:25 am
that. >> it's true. i didn't mean a winter vacation is something to take lightly for people who are suffering from very severe disabilities. but this is not a place to rest. it's aç place where you, people are pushed and pushed by some of the most extraordinary instructors in the world to do things they never thought they could do, sometimes things they had never done before in their lifetime. >> never done before in their life times. how empowering is that for all these individual? how have you watched them transform? >> i remember talking to one veteran who came up to me and he was blind. he said, i had been almost killed in an automobile accident in germany when i was on active duty. i came out of it deaf, dumb, blind and quadriplegic, and he said i felt like giving up, which i suppose you could understand. then he added, this program gave me my life back. it gave me my will to live. i've got everything now except my eyesight.
3:26 am
you hear that overç and over again. >> is that the guy you write about in the "wall street journal" talking about how he set the record for traveling 63 miles an hour -- >> no, that's another one, a vietnam veteran who came out with, it turns out severe diabetes that caused blindness eventually. he learned to ski as a blind veteran in one of the first clinics which is 28 years ago. >> so many different stories to tell. i hear a 91-year-old is going to be there. this seems like america at its best. talk a little bit about how many volunteers are going to be there this year. in 1987 i see there were 90 veterans and 50 volunteers. boy, has@5q grown. >> i think we have -- they have 400 volunteers coming this year across four different sports, downhill skiing, sled hockey as they call it, nordic skiing. they actually have kayaking in a swimming pool.
3:27 am
and these instructors are the top of the line, and it's also something else, the u.s. is really a leader in this whole field of what they call assisted sports that are an opportunity for people with all kinds of severe disabilities to learn the disability is something you get over. you focus on what you can do on your ability. you look forward, not backward. it's really quite amazing. >> looks fantastic and kicks off this week in colorado. >> can i make one pitch here? >> absolutely. how can we help? >> if people wqn, to participate or contribute go to miracles .dav. miracles on a mountain side. d.a.v. is disabled veterans. they cohost it along with the veterans administration. 85% of the funding of this program comes from private donations. >> we've got a lot of people who are watching right now and i'm sure they want to help. paul wolfowitz, thank you very much. >> coming up on "fox & friends," she has millions of dollars to pay for

3:55 am
in there. i've heard of people putting jewelry, high end electronics. take that on board if possible. >> people are doing carry-ons anyway. a lot of times if you aren't in business class or first class, you have to check your bag anyway. how do you avoid that? >> you can do an early -- pay small fee, get on early, get in the second class or second zone of boarding and usually that's a 7 to $9 upcharge. that guarantees you overhead space. so you do that. also take your bag through the regular scanners at tsa, get to the gate and then if you gate check it, it's just from that gate down to that plane in order to get it on board. so there is less people touching it, et cetera. one of the things you want to do is take a standard bag. this is actually my travel bag. i take it everywhere. i always trio carry on. i just took a trip to visit great britain and i packed for six nights, seven days and i took it with this. it expands, goes up. but i also, if i have to put

something that's expensive, i'll use some of my clothes and stash it in the clothes or in a pocket, pair of jeans. >> i want to make sure we get to the locks you have for us. there are a couple different kinds. you want to make sure it's tsa approved. >> correct. this is the tsa approved lock. what that means is that the tsa can take it off and they don't have to destroy it. on the other hand, looks similar. it's a master lock, great lock. they will have to destroy that lock if they want to get in your bags. now what happens if i couldn't lose your bags? >> i never heard of one ever these. >> you take one of these, throw in the bag and stays on for 40 days. this is called lug lock, the other is called track dot. you drop it in. let's say it gets lost. as soon as you land, you can check where your bag it and find your bag landed in dallas, texas. so at least you know. >> easier to find it. how much are those going to cost? >> that's 49.95 right now as an

4:04 am
>> why should the taxpayers be paying for this report? >> few things. first off, these are not my lawyers. these people have their own professional personal reputations. six of them are former federal prosecutors. they're not going to white wash anything for me. >> federal authorities and state lawmakers are still investigating the scandal. so bridgegate continues. those are your headlines. >> thank you very much. harry reid is in the news. he's been in the news for a while. he's been saying some crazy stuff very famously, remember how he said mitt romney didn't pay any taxes and he had it on good authority. >> everyone knows the war is lost. >> yeah. the republicans helped russia take over crimea, stuff like that. remember a number of times during the whole obamacare debauchle, there have been people who have come up and told their stories. harry reid said those people were liars. they don't have it bad. they're just lying.
4:05 am
yesterday, harry reid extraordinarily said, i have never called any of those people liars. here he is. >> mr. president, the junior senator from wyoming has come before several times recently talking about the fact that examples of he and others have given of obamacare, examples that they think are bad i call liars. mr. president, that is simply untrue. i have never come to the floor to my recollection, i have never said a word about any of the examples that republicans have given regarding obamacare and how it's not very good. >> instead of saying trying to get your memory back, we thought we would cue up our tape machine. again, we are using vhs tapes on our show. and we'll bring him back his memory. take a look. this is harry reid to describe the anecdotes of people who say they're suffering under
4:06 am
obamacare. >> we heard about the evils of obamacare, about the lives it's ruined, and republicans stump speeches and ads paid for by oral magnet, the koch brothers. but in those tales, turned out to be just that, tales. stories made up, lies, distorted by the republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements. there is plenty of horror stories being told. all of them are untrue. >> even emphasizing the word lie s there. a head cold typically lasts three days, five days, something like that. probably next we'll be hearing him say, i never said that about mitt romney and his taxes and i never said that about the republicans being responsible for russia annexing crimea. >> it's incredible. he's under a lot of pressure.
4:07 am
a problem with the federal election committee over illegally afghanistan his granddaughter get money she shouldn't have gotten. but he promise to do apologize for that. >> it is interesting that he has demonized mitt romney, we get that. the koch brothers. to call them unamerican, though, i saw, they have contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to cancer research. and smithsonian and stuff like that. i don't get the unamerican thing. he doesn't like their politics. it looks like harry reid is a powerful guy who is either -- i read one blog that said he's either having a nervous breakdown or somebody who lies about lies. >> that's what always happens. right? you lie once and then you have to lie to cover up the lie. >> right. unless we're taping it. then you're kind of screwed. >> that's a great point. >> it's not exactly a surveillance camera. he was staring straight ahead from the podium. >> he was also reading it. >> right. yes, he was. >> to the best of my recollection, just get the
4:08 am
paper. get the speech. >> so who is going to the movies this weekend? >> are you thinking about going to see "noah"? >> it's the number one movie. filmed on long island. he's got a huge budget. there is a huge flood in the movie and this is based off the bible. but it's also a movie that's generating a lot of controversy. i am not sure if it's going to result in a big box office or not. >> the controversy is that they never say the word god in it the entire time. creator is used a little bit. but the idea of the ark story and this global flood that wipes out all the evil and humanity and causes there to be a fresh start is embraced by pretty much several global religions as well. >> that's the way the story goes. >> right. and that's sort of the way it is, but there are a lot of creative liberties taken as well. >> sure. and some people are upset that it's a story from the bible and they don't mention god. they do mention the creator.
4:09 am
i think who they're talking about. now there is a fellow from breitbart who has seen the movie and he says the real controversy is that the movie has been made by hollywood to essentially talk about the environment. here is ben shapiro. >> complete reversal of what the biblical narrative is in terms of sin. it's about man being sinful and the man used means the earth is corrupted. that typically is used to mean violence, sexual immorality. in this movie, the great sin man commits are degrading the environment. overpopulation is the problem, eating of animals is a big problem. degradation by using iron. prehistoric fracking. >> the other thing is a lot of these interactions that noah has with the creator are seen as
4:10 am
hallucinations rather than being spoken to by god. but it's supposed to bring in 40 millions. >> it went over that huge budget. i heard. but even back then, here is the thing, i'm not going to make an official word 'til i see it. maybe everyone has it all wrong. >> are you going tonight? >> i'm not going to go tonight. i can't get a date at the last minute. >> i'll go. >> there is one point that could be good about it is that it's getting people talking about the bible. and it's getting people excited potentially about religion. >> but if it was -- it is your money. are you going to go to see "noah," which is about saving the environment, apparently not about saving humanity, which is kind of curious. kevin mccarthy, our critic, is going to be reviewing it coming up very shortly. i'm going to wait 'til it comes out on tv. >> we can write it off and say it's for our job, as long as we get a talking point monday. but bithe way, russell crowe,

we did a poll at fox news and it showed that 43% of the country said they would not vote for a candidate in 2014 if they supported the affordable care act. now six senators are fighting for reelection in red states. they appear to be taking that to heart. they've written an op ed with their suggestions on how to improve obamacare and all of them are democrats. will this be enough? joining us now to expand on the changes they would like to see is one of those senators, senator mark begich who will keep his seat in alaska. what changes what you like to see in obamacare? >> as you know, this is not new to me. we've had this conversation on your show before, since it passed. i've always looked at this bill is not perfect and we need to continue to make changes. we've done changes already. got rid of the 1099 provision, took care of firefighters, volunteer firefighters. yesterday took care of individuals subjected to domestic violence and how to
4:16 am
improve the heal care delivery. the two i put on the table, one last year and one earlier this year, versus the copper plant. this creates another option for a lower cost plant, lower premiums, gives more choice to the consumers. what's most interesting about this is it will save money. we've had an independent insurance group review this and they estimate it's $20 billion in savings. along with that, the small business community, the provisions in the original plan, i've heard from a lot of small businesses in alaska and throughout the country that it said the provisions or the exemptions for people under 50, which is great, they want to see that extended up to 100, which we've done. but on our additional pieces, we give more access to tax credits and opportunity of people want to offer health care, they'll get additional tax credits. >> other senators join you. angus king, who calls himself an independent, but sides with the
4:17 am
democrats as well. where were you guys in october when they talked about suspending obamacare, repealing it, and then talked about fixing it, when republicans were standing up in october and we know the government shut down afterwards. why weren't any of you six standing up saying, hey, let's make these changes? they have a point here. >> actually i have -- since the day after it passed, the copper plan was prepared last year. the incentives i've talked about several times. the one in this package is revamped. what i find and honestly, it's interesting, if this was not such a political hot potato, this issue of health care, i'm talking individuals privately, republicans who like what we're doing, just yesterday senator crapo and senator mccain have said we need to make changes and they made comments about our proposal. i think it's just the political environment, it's so toxic. i wish we would get to legislating and focus on what we
4:18 am
want to tweak here. >> a lot of people argue that comes from the president who go out and vilify and have partisan attacks rather than look at and say there might be some merit here. now let's talk about what harry reid will do. will he look at you six and say, great point, people. i'm going to put this up for a vote? >> well, i hope some of these will come to the table. we may not have all of them come to the table, but i think we can make in-roads. i described it yesterday, it's a little bumpy road -- >> senator, i know you say this, but why don't you go up to him and say, i got to make changes. this obamacare doesn't work. why wouldn't he put it up for a vote? >> i think some of these will be coming down the table. i think ours, which has a $20 billion savings makes all the arguments. we give more choice toconsumers, saves upwards of $20 billion. i'm going to make my case. now i have more allies on this issue and i think we have an opportunity to bring these to the table before the year is out. we should. i'm going to be working with republicans as i always do in
4:19 am
this body, to try to find those folks that want to help us change the program and make it better for consumers and businesses. >> senator, if you weren't trailing in the polls, would you be doing this? >> as i said again, i don't know what polls are reading. but putting that aside, i have proposed changes and if you recall on this show, when we went back and forth on this, you actually produced the document where i made it very clear after the law passed, it wasn't perfect, i had proposed these ideas from afterwards, the law passed from the 1099, firefighters, the copper plan, the business. i've done it time and time again. the polls are irrelevant. we know, for example in alaska, i am not going back to the days where 34% of alaskans who went for individual plans were denied. today zero denied. but we do need to improve this piece of legislation, make more choice, lower the cost and insure that businesses, small businesses have more options. i'm going to continue to do it with or without the poll numbers. that's irrelevant to me. >> i appreciate it.
4:20 am
also, as we know, we don't really know what the plan looks like because there has been over 30 waivers. we're kind of delaying a lot of the impact on this plan, even without the changes that you and others have proposed. thank you for joining us this morning. >> as always, a pleasure to be here. >> coming up straight ahead, it costs a whole lot of money to go to college these days and now we know which degree is not worth your money. it's the worst one you can get and we'll go over it. and we talked about it earlier. the new movie "noah." is it any good? kevin mccarthy watched it and took notes. hello? hey, i notice your car is not in the driveway. yeah. it's in the shop. it's going to cost me an arm and a leg. that's hilarious. sorry. you shoulda taken it to midas. get some of that midas touch. they tell you what stuff needs fixing, and what stuff can wait. next time i'm going to midas.

independent feeling of a character-driven script with a big budget environment. this movie is not a documentary. you're dealing with artistic liberties here. i reread the story last night in the bible. my dad gave me this bible and i read the story last night and it took 15 minutes to read. the movie is over two hours and 18 minutes long. there is definitely artistic liberties. it's an incredible story about a man who is chosen by god to build an ark to save his family and two of every living thing on earth before a huge flood destroys the world. the movie is very character driven. the performances are amazing. russell crowe is phenomenal. it's one of the best performance of his career so far. emma watson, who you all know from harry potter, completely sheds that character, becomes a different character in the film. the action is incredibly epic. almost like a lord of the rings style action type of movie in that regard. there is a very, very gigantic family drama going on in this film. the first two parts are incredible. the third part is a little jarring. the character ark is a little off in the ending of the film.

4:35 am
how she's a victim: when you're shooting a movie, they're like, we need you to go to wisconsin for two weeks. and then you have to work 14 hours a day. that's part of it. it's very difficult. i think to have a regular job and to be a mom is not as. of course there are challenges, but it's not like being on the set. what she's doing is, her situation, she's playing the victim card. it's so hard. i have this fantastic mansion and every once in a while i got to go to wisconsin and then i got to work 14 hours a day, unlike real parents who work 24 hours a day. >> yeah. she's not the first hollywood starlet to say something like this. remember when giselle said something similar and she's got people who do her hair and make-up every single day? kanye west comparing his concerts to going to war. tom cruise saying his life was dangerous like a soldier. >> even gwyneth paltrow has been quoted in 2006 and 2007 saying, i'm so much happier in england than the u.s. in the u.s., we talk about money
4:36 am
and jobs. they don't get all caught up in that. they talk about deep conversations. mckenzie dawson wrote this column, who is a 9 to 5 mom and she was in a sarcastic right to the point of a look at her life and compare it to the superstar's life because one movie a year, she sakes quote, thank god i don't make millions making one movie per year. that's what i say every morning as i wait on a windy platform about to begin my 45-minute commute into the city. whenever things get rough, all i have to do is keep reminding myself of that fact. >> right. so we asked you when we detailed this story a little while ago what you thought. got an e-mail from growingry. he -- gregory. he says she needs to get a clue. try being a single mom or dad and have to deploy, afghanistan or haiti. we don't pay our service members millions and a 14-hour day, while deployed is considered a good day. >> y via e-mail,
4:37 am
here is a quarter. call the wah ambulance. >> not only uncoupled from her husband, she uncoupled her life from reality and her brain from her mouth. but i would say this, i think my feeling is chris martin made a very bad tactical error a couple weeks ago. a few weeks ago he released a song talking about how sad he is about the breakup and it sounds like it's going to be popular, which means every concert, he's gog have to sing this song and he's going to go right back to that moment! >> see, that would remind him then why he broke up with her, the lady who named their kids apple. >> and he has said he has problems with the way she eats, too. i went to a restaurant she recommended and i ordered a turkey and avocado sandwich and it was maybe 100 calories. the bread was this thin. there was a sliver of avocado, a piece of turkey and half a quinoa salad.
4:38 am
we went to another restaurant afterward 'cause we were still hungry. >> what do you think about gwen playing the victim card? e-mail us or twitter us. >> and if you're a superstar and think we have it wrong, feel free to write us. >> let's go right on over there. >> or it could all just be publicity. all of it could be publicity. >> all bad publicity in this case. >> hey, any publicity, good publicity maybe. we have this, a big development in texas. a federal appeals court upholding the toughest abortion restrictions in the country, saying that they do not put women's health in jeopardy. these are the same laws that sparked a 12-plus hour filibuster by wendy davis. but the laws did pass, sparking protest across the state. so far 20 clinics around the state have been closed. governor rick perry praising the decision, saying that it is good news for women and the unborn. the postal service billions in debt, but postal workers, not

welcome back. this is anna. >> this is brian. president obama in saudi arabia today. >> he was back there in 2009 when he bowed before king abdullah when he was a new president. so what can we expect today and what was the significance, if anything, of that bow? fox news poll reveals that the highest majority now feel president obama is not a strong and decisive leader at a time in which we need one. >> joining us is president of the american islamic forum and democracy and author of "a battle for the soul of islam and american muslim patriot's fight." good morning. >> good morning. >> earlier this week we saw the president remind the world, some say of our weakness, that we have a leaner military. what does he need to do while in saudi arabia on this trip to kind of tell our adversaries and our allies that we still hold weight here?
4:46 am
>> we need to be a country and have a president that's based in principles and moral leadership that it's not just about -- certainly we have their attention now because it is about iran. it is about balancing the power in the middle east and not letting iran get nuclear weapons and there is no greater friend than the saudis. but on the other hand, the saudis have been some of the world's greatest offenders of religious freedom, apostasy. tell them they need to bring a church. they need to allow an opening of their society and stopped to the people's movements. but unfortunately, the reason the polls are so low, president reagan's polls were 67 higher because as we negotiated with the soviets, he reminded them about prisoners of conscience and president obama needs to remind them about prisoners of conscience in saudi arabia while we have their attention right now. >> but this is totally different conversation. we're going there because they're mad at us. saudi arabia feels we've left them in the dust and we're
4:47 am
kissing up to iran. do they have a point and should we care that they're mad at us? >> this is what happens when you're weak with arab tribal leaders. they will take advantage of it and say, oh, we're mad at you. you're the ones who are weak or we're going to turn to your enemies to get support and be on the other side. this is where we should come and say, you need us. we've been your long-time allies. we're buying your oil. we're keeping you safe. we have our defense ships and others in the region and if you want us to protect you, you need to respect freedom, human rights, et cetera. so it's a push and tug versus sort of this who's the biggest in the room and they need us right now. yes, their press and others will push the envelope and say you guys are weak, et cetera. that's what their press is saying right now actually. but we need a strong president who can get on top of that and say, we're going to help you only if you advance human rights and religious freedom. >> and the video we showed of him bowing last time that he was there, an aide said he wasn't
4:48 am
bowing. he was just shaking both -- with both hands and he's taller, so he was leaning over. are we symbolically somehow going to be bowing in saudi arabia again? >> without mentioning women's rights, when secretary kerry tells them that well, we respect your culture and understand you treat women differently, that's basically a symbolic bow to the fact that we're not advancing principles for their muslims, their christians, all of the people who want freedom from their oppressors and whether it's physically or symbolically, we need to stand for strength. >> here is a poll worth bringing up about how the world views america today as the most dominant now? 59%. in 2002, right around iraq, after afghanistan, 85%. now we're at 34% according to other countries that could emerge. that's how we're viewed. that could change. we also know that's not accurate. we're also going this with a message. the mental is, hey, we're
4:49 am
finally ready to fund the rebels in syria. to free syrian army. is that the right message at the right time? do you agree with it? >> well, you're not going to get rid of al-qaeda with assad there. so unfortunately, the longer we take, it's been over three years, the more radicalized, the more there will be no one to help. in the south, there may be moderate free syria army, but they're getting harder to find. the message is we need to start pushing, tipping the region from the arab awakening to having a liberty doctrine. right now the president has no doctrine. we're allowing the saudis to fund the radical islamists. we're having both sides of the equation, whether hezbollah or al-qaeda and the militants, both sides are anti-western and it's time -- the president's not going to pull a policy out of the half, unfortunately. but at least maybe if we push hard enough in the media and government to say, you know what? you need to have a liberty doctrine and defend those who are on our side of the moral equation. i hope he does that, but i fear he will not. >> it's getting harder and
4:50 am

the state of arizona. justices scalia and thomas said they were wrong, the supreme court were wrong and that's a constitutional violation. it wasn't the supremacy clause. >> between fast and and federal drug laws, america selected? >> fast and furious. this is where attorney holder said i'm not giving any documents in 2012. congress said you're in contempt, holder. there is a lawsuit that continues to go on. violation of the necessary proper clause with regard to congressional oversight of the executive. >> all right. given the choice between internet regulation and church rights, america voted and they said they're more concerned about the violation of church rights. >> church rights. the eeoc said a lutheran minister, a commissioned minister ho who is a teacher couldn't be disciplined by the lutheran church. the supreme court for once said they were wrong and the first amendment prevailed. the first amendment constitutional violation went

5:02 am
house intelligence committee, says he will serve out the end of his term and then hopes to start a national radio program. also this moments ago, planes spotted what might be piece of flight 370 floating in the new search area of the indian ocean. crews are searching about 700 miles northeast of where they had been searching. the reason? it is now believed that the plane flew faster and it ran out of fuel earlier, so it didn't make it as far. we also learned the f.b.i. found very few clues on a pilot's flight simulator. they were trying to recover the files that he deleted just days before the jet vanished. and republican new jersey governor chris chris christie cd of wrongdoing in the scandal over traffic jams on the george washington bridge. that according to an internal investigation paid for, by the way, by cristie.
5:03 am
in a brand-new interview, he talked about the toll that all of this has taken on his family. >> our oldest son was home on break and he asked me, did do you this? it was a tough question that your son would ask you. and i said no. i didn't. and he said, i'm glad. >> federal authorities and state lawmakers are still investigating the scandal. and to another scandal of sorts, gwyneth paltrow, she has assistants, maids, nannies and more assistants. but for her, she thinks that moms who work 9 to 5 jobs, well, they have it so much easier. in a recent interview she said this, quote, when you're shooting a movie, they're like, we need you to go to wisconsin for two weeks and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. i think to have a regular job
5:04 am
and be a mom is not as -- of course there are challenges, but it's not like being on set. poor gwennie. >> all right, thank you very much. >> we're going to ask the people. we're just exposing her words, so we're going to ask the american people what they thought, compare a 9 to 5er comparing going to manhattan to a big movie star. >> mary wrote us and said that's unfortunate that her life as a mom is so hard for her. i'm a regular mom and i'll be happy to trade with her. >> and renee says she's so far from what a regular mom is. she probably thinks playing regular mom in a movie is the gist of t. news flash, nobody else cut after a scene in my life. geraldo, read mine. >> kerry said, gwyneth needs a real job with kids. i know things are tough when the maid calls in sick on laundry day. i have to say, gwyneth went to the same high school as my
5:05 am
daughter and she is exactly the person that people love to hate. why? because she has everything. blythe danker mommy. her dad was a high roller. she was raised in elegance. married to a rock star, long lean legs. not too hard on the eyes. it's easy to say look, she has everything. but, you know, she's obviously had some tough moments. >> really? >> relatively speaking. >> what's a tough moment for her? >> when you stub your foot on those steps to get into the scene -- >> sometimes a stunt double bump noose your shoulder. >> that's right. you may miss that coffee break. your tea may be lukewarm. all kinds of things. >> we'll and minute gwyneth paltrow a little later. we've worldly man who has a rich background who also knows the middle east. let's bring up this topic. the president of the united states left the vatican, lands in saudi arabia.
5:06 am
this was put on his schedule to try to heal relations between the two nations and right now we're at a place where our persona, our profile is not at the all-time high point. what do you expect to happen today, geraldo? >> could i say the saudi arabiaian piece first? because i think the united states has invested far too much in saudi arabia. in this monarchy, ultraconservative monarchy, this religiously fanatic monarchy that has exported fundamentalist islam and bank rolled our enemies in pakistan and elsewhere. i think we have invested far too much. i think it's about time the united states distanced itself from saudi arabia. i pray the president does not offer the same extreme deference, let me put it that way, did he in 2009 to the saudi king. >> you know with a? it would be great if we were in a situation where we didn't need them. if we were drilling more in the united states, if we open up the shale fields, if we had the keystone pipeline, we wouldn't need them so much. >> i wish we had paid more
5:07 am
attention to the shiite aspect of the islamic faith rather than the sunni. i think we had bet too heavily on the sunni side. i think we could have used like the syrian iranian people, if we had worked with them more, perhaps more aggressively, if we had been more focused on being even handed in the region, maybe we could have done more. now we have a mess on our hands on both sides. >> when the president meets the king, are you worried we might have another moment with the bowing business? >> little things mean a lot. i always show deference with asian cultures and with arabian cultures. i also do a slight bow -- but it is a much more subtle thing. i do it in sushi restaurants. you don't have to overdo it. you're not like bowing to the violin concerto. >> but bowing to the king.
5:08 am
>> a nod is different than a bow. i hope he nods rather than bows. >> we want to look at this new poll. today compared to six years ago about how powerful we are. 52% believe that we are weaker and -- >> a bad month. >> just a year ago. >> but what is it that the president needs to do while he's on this trip? reagan's numbers were very different. he used to mention human rights. he used to mention soviet prisoners. >> the survey i saw compared us to 2002 and today. 2002, we were widely perceived by three fats of the world as the dominant power n. 2002, we had just begun our mobilization to wage war against al-qaeda and the taliban. the united states military was the armed force of the united states, were really gearing up. clearly i thought that was the perception. the erosion that has taken place
5:09 am
is in part obviously the aggression of russia and the emergence of putin as a competing power. there has definitely been -- >> it's a regional power. >> that may be true, but that's a different issue. but we've gone from the united states and russia way down here barely picking up the piece of its fractured empire to putin's aggression, seizes the crimean relative success in sochi, helps keep assad in power in syria. the united states, more muted in terms of where deescalating our military force. we're cutting back -- so i think there has been a coming together, but i still believe, and i think the survey indicates almost 60% of americans still believe the united states is the dominant power. i believe the united states is clearly the dominant power. just one more statistic. the united states economy is $17 trillion a year. the russian economy is $2 trillion a year. 17 to 2, we are still the dominant power in this world.
5:10 am
>> i thought you were talk being our debt for a second. >> that's another story, but a fair point, brian. >> condoleeza rice says there is a vacuum. there's a vacuum because we decided to lower our voice. we've decided to step back. we decide fundamental we step back and lower our voice, others will lead. how has that gone for us? >> it has not gone well. i think and i do not deny that at all. i do believe that in recent weeks by rallying angela merkel, the chancellor of germany and the nato powers to wake up to the threat posed by russia, not to us, but to its neighbors, the near abroad as the russians call it, i think we have finally woken up to that. i think putin, in my view, is checked. not check mate, but we have checked him. his move now, he's got forces on the ukrainian border. if he were to step over into eastern ukraine, ukraine proper, i think the united states must say that far and no further. >> i want to ask but journalism and mainstream media. there have been a couple of scandals in charlotte and a
5:11 am
senator in california. if you were watching the other channels, you would never know they were both democrats. of course, if the shoe were on the other foot, the first line would be, he's a republican. she's a republican. boom. >> there is no doubt -- and it is undeniable -- that the mainstream media is more liberal than anything else. there is an instinct among the liberal, probably mostly democratic mainstream media to portray republicans as hypocrites and -- >> evil doers. >> any time they sway from the church going family loving, you know, u.s. of a boosterring, they get skewered. there is no doubt about that. no one can realistically deny it. it's provable. rather than try to talk around it, we are protective of the -- and usually the politicians who
5:12 am
are robbing on the democratic side tend to be ethnic politicians as in this cases. the asian, china town guy taking money from the china town boss in san francisco. the black mayor of charlotte, so there is another politically correct reason to step over their real identification as democrats. >> in those cases, you would never know their party if you don't watch fox. >> that's right. we are the antidote to that particular problem. >> by the way that, a new suit? >> it is. >> looks great. >> thank you. >> went to a mall and pulled it out. >> that's right. >> good luck on that moonlighting job. >> whatever that job is. >> thank you. have a good weekend. >> it's going well? >> meanwhile, straight ahead, remember when harry reid said this? >> lies. >> harry says he can't remember saying that. >> isn't there a song -- >> is he losing his marbles? one of his former employees here

who is also not afraid to speak what is on his mind. even he would admit he's not the most masterful of orators. so the words maybe inartful. but what the truth is, is that he believes in certain fundamental things and he believes certain things need to be exposed, whether it be hypocrisy or the republicans object strucktive ways or their own misinterpretation. so he's one that's going to be plain spoken. like i said, sometimes it's not always going to be the most artful, but he's not going to be afraid of what he believes in. >> and tony, it doesn't sound like he's very truthful 'cause now he's saying, i never said i called anybody a liar. it sounds like he's lying about the lie. >> exactly. it's not plain spoken. he's attacking the american people. he's calling liars of those who have lost their health insurance, or had to go into obamacare plans that don't keep their doctors, don't keep their old plan, don't keep the coverage they need for whether it be cancer medication or other things. he's going after people. we understand harry reid is a
5:19 am
boxer, a tough fighter of the he's done it in the fast. he accused mitt romney essentially of a felony from the floor of the senate where he was protected against slander laws. we understand he's going to go after political opponents. he's not going after the american people like the koch brothers for expressing and engaging in their very american first constitutional right of free speech and expression and he's calling them unamerican for doing so. so penny, with all respect to you, and i understand you have a tough job, but harry reid has gone beyond the pale and he's done this in the past. it's gotten much more regular and much more pointed. i think it's really hurting democrats as we've seen in the polling. >> penny, i'll give you another word. >> i would just say, do you really think part of the american spirit for multi billionaires to go out and be able to spend hundreds of millions of dollars basically in the politics of political destruction? >> what about your liberal friend in california doing the same thing? george soros. >> i don't agree with it on either side. >> wait a minute. >> what i'm saying is it's really not in the american spirit. i don't think you and i would
5:20 am
agree it's in the american spirit to be able to put hundreds of millions -- individuals to be able to put hundreds of millions of dollars on the ad, really in negative sense. it's not about advancing a position. it is really about the personal destruction. >> and the american spirit when unions do it, penny? who have done it without regulation virtually for the entire time we've had up until citizens united -- >> you know with a? i got a feeling the two of you are going to disagree about the koch brothers. penny, the koch brothers spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to cure cancer. for him to call them unamerican, that seems a little weird. penny. hold on a second. penny, penny, so you're saying he's not crazy. he's just being harry? >> he's not a crazy man. he's a wonderful individual. >> democrats are going down, steve, and he's the skipper of the titanic and he's unhinged. >> tony and penny, thank you very much. >> thank you. 20 minutes after the top of the hour. he's not crazy. just being harry. coming up, can you picture

pope francis and president obama met for the first time today together and prayed. they prayed together. said obama, lord, please help me accept the things i cannot change, which is everything. >> but he does change a lot through executive orders. >> he does. >> coming up, we got the weekend sunday. you know what we'll be watching in the morning? >> joel osteen? >> that guy right there! chris wallace. look at that, there it is. chris, how are you? >> i'm good. >> what did you think about the pope and the president yesterday >> look, it's always fascinating to see and over the years you see it a lot, generally
5:33 am
speaking, it's a photo op. they have a nice meeting. president basks in the reflective glory of the upon active and -- pontiff and this one particularly who replaced obama as the great superstar in the world. having said that, the only one i could think of that really was very consequential and i remember it 'cause i was covering it was when ronald reagan met with pope john paul and it turned out that secretly that they had agreed to try to undercut the soviet union. i suspect it was nothing of that consequence that happened yesterday. >> indeed. >> meanwhile, we do have a fox news alert. mike rogers, chairman of the house intelligence committee, has made it official. he will not seek reelection. he's retiring and going into talk radio. chris, what impact does this have? he was one of the most respected intelligence guys on capitol hill with that f.b.i. background. >> well, i'm genuinely surprised
5:34 am
by this. i certainly had no inkling of it and i think it's just a coincidence that he's going to be one of our guests on fox news sunday. i would hate to think that somebody gets booked on fox news sunday and then decides they don't want to spend any more time in congress. but we'll certainly ask him about it. it's a surprise. you're exactly right. one of the most respected people on capitol hill, a real heavyweight when it came to national security issues, intel. we're still planning, we'll ask him about the build-up of russian troops and ukraine where they have talked about it being exercise. now they're talking about 80,000 being there. also the missing plane, and we'll talk about mike rogers' future. >> this is good because we're almost out of radio talk show hosts. so we need more. >> i don't think you should feel threatened, brian, much. >> he's been a huge champion of trying to get to the bottom everything that happened in
5:35 am
benghazi. but chris, this is just one of several retirements announced. what's going on on capitol hill? >> well, it's not unusual, anna, for, as you get close to the end of a term -- i think part of the problem on capitol hill is that nothing gets done. and so people are just plain frustrated with the lack of progress, with the lack of legislating. i must say, and i've been here more than 35 years, i'm generally very impressed with the members of congress. it isn't that easy a job. a lot of them could make more money in the private sector. i think they really come here to do good. i think a lot of them are frustrated because there is such gridlock in washington, both in the house and senate. nothing gets done. i don't know if that's what's the case with mike rogers. maybe he just wants to take on brian kilmeade and his radio show. >> could be. >> that monster that you can not stop, that huge force. but chris, there is another thing going on on capitol hill and we just had senator mark
5:36 am
begich. there are senators offering fixes to obamacare. where were they in the fall? what do you think is going on here? >> well, i think you're exactly right. there are a bunch of them there. if you look at the guy, the lower left hand, angus king of maine, who is a so-called independent, but also works with the democrats, he's going to be on our show and one of the things we want to ask him is exactly that. what are these changes? why do you feel you need them? and why now because it does sure seem for a lot of them that they're doing this because obamacare has become a big political burden and this allows them to go out and say, we're not satisfied either and we want to make changes. we'll talk to senator king, independent/democrat, and also john barrasso of wyoming, a republican who is also a doctor and very opposed to obamacare. >> a lot of them are worried about keeping their job. clearly we've seen the spin from democrats go from obamacare to embrace it, to neutralize it, to
5:37 am
say it's flawed and run from it and say you're going to fix it. is this the final straw here, is this the last one we're going to see? >> well, we've got a few months between now and the election. so let's see how desperate they get. but clearly they feel that just go in there and defending obamacare is not enough because people are unhappy with certain parts of it. i know the big talk today is about the fact that 6 million-plus signed up. and that's a good number. and more power to them. they've gotten people to sign up. but what we still don't know how many people actually paid, because if you didn't pay, you don't have health care. how many were actually uninsured previously, 'cause that was all the point of this, to get uninsured health coverage, and how many of the young invincibles, 35% to be in that group, or the cost factor, the risk pool doesn't work. so the 6 million is a good number, but there are a lot of internals we still don't know. can i just say, it's very interesting that the administration kept saying, we just don't have those figures.
5:38 am
now suddenly, guess what? they have those figure. >> now they're in the neighborhood. it's interesting, brian mentioned a moment ago that he interviewed senator begich talking about it and it's clearly poll driven. this is clearly a strategy the democrats have come up with regarding okay, i want to fix it. here is the senator. >> since it passed, i've always looked at this bill as not perfect and we need to continue to make changes. we've done some changes already. i think it's just the political environment, it's so toxic, i just wish we could get to legislating and focus on what we want to tweak here. i'm going to be working with republicans as i always do in this body, to try to find those folks that want to help us change the program and make it better for consumers and businesses with or without the poll numbers. that's irrelevant to me. it's about making a difference. i have. >> so these guys are going to go back home and say look, i want to change it. but harry reid is not going to bring anything up. so what's the point? >> well, you know, it's sort of like the old saying, when they say it's not about the money, it's about the money.
5:39 am
when they say it's not about the poll numbers, it's about the poll numbers. and it allows him to go and make exactly those talking points. i want to legislate. i want to work with republicans. but you're exactly right. harry reid says he's not even going to bring it up. you know why? 'cause he knows if you take that sweater with the little loose piece of yarn there and people start tugging on it, the whole sleeve might come off. so he's very reluctant to do that. this is a lot about reelection. >> that happened to me, to a sweater i got at an army navy store and i didn't think it was possible. so i know it's not just an example. i want to bring to you a poll and talk about -- >> do you not have this show booked? the fact that you've been talking to me -- you're a lot more interested in me than you usually are. >> we actually did have time for one more question, but not anymore. >> let's toss over to heather. we're done. >> no, no. we can talk. look, i love talking to you guys. but i can tell something --
5:40 am
brian left. i drove brian away again? >> chris v a good weekend. >> watch fox news sunday. >> i'm not done yet. what are you talking about? >> heather has a look at the headlines. >> you don't want me to do the weather. i'll say it's warm outside. so let's get to this. we're going to talk about chickens. farmers now threatening to put you out of business. the obama administration just announcing that it put the lesser prairie chicken -- that's the name of it -- on a list of threatened species. the move limits ranching, farming and building on the birds' habitat, which is in kansas and parts of oklahoma, colorado, new mexico and texas. so you need to know about that. a newspaper editor crying fowl, because the state senator proposed making the paper shell
5:41 am
out 150,000 bucks for being one of the top polluters in the country. well, it just so happens that the republican law maker, dawn vetten, had been subject of critical articles in that same newspaper. but bitten says that the negative press has nothing to do with it. he says the newspapers are polluting the storm drains. to the ukraine now, the state department under fire this morning because of this. what do you think? spokeswoman posted this photo smiling and giving a thumbs up while holding a sign that reads, #unitedforukraine. critics say that the photo from america's chief diplomatic perch is embarrassing. here is some of the comments that you've had to say. matt tweeting, remember when winston churchill saved britain with the #victory? that was super productive. and george saying, george w. bush had stealth bombers make daring midnight raids to enforce
5:42 am
foreign policy. president obama has hash tags. and those are a look at your headlines. >> not the weather, but somebody who does have the weather for us is our meteorologist, maria molina. good morning. >> hi, good morning to all of you. we have severe weather that we're expecting today. there's a slight risk that's been issued by the storm prediction center, from parts of texas and farther east into parts of western alabama and the florida panhandle. we are looking at the potential for large hail, damaging winds and even isolated tornadoes from some of these storms. otherwise that storm system is going to head east and all along parts of the eastern half of the country, you're going to be seeing areas of rain throughout the weekend and quite heavy at times. there even is a chance for localized flooding. some areas could see several inches of rain and some snow across new england and there is a look at your high temperatures. well into the 80s for del rio. upper 50s in new york city. let's head back inside. >> it's finally going to feel like spring today. thank you. coming up straight ahead, black conservatives under attack of the wait 'til you hear what happened to juan williams' son

when he tried to start a balanced debate across america, people like basketball hall of famer dominique wilkins, are taking charge 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 works differently than pills, and comes in a pen.
5:44 am
and the needle is thin. victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with 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
5:45 am
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.
