3:00 am
beneful. play. it's good for you. >> good early sunday morning to you,ment. it is april 22nd. what's happening. arizona versus the united states? that's right, this week the highest court in the land will rule on that well-known obama administration case, the questions federal power versus state power and people battling it out in the the courtroom have been here before. >> and details surrounding the trayvon martin case. and george zimmerman likely to be free, but will he be safe? and the martin family speaking out about his courtroom apology. >> clayton: humiliation, does it go too far or what the drunk needed? we report, and you decide,
3:01 am
standing out there with the sandwich board. "fox & friends" hour one starts right now. ♪ >> good morning, everybody, thanks so much for joining us this sunday morning and thanks to peter johnson, jr. for tilling in again. >> clayton: and let's get the coffee order. >> alisyn: the great thing about peter visiting, he buys the coffee. >> dave: i will if you want, yeah, oh, yeah (applause) >> somebody can get it, i'm paying and buns, too. >> buns? >> bagels, danish. >> clayton: the starbucks isn't open. let's talk about this, alisyn talked about this, a rematch of sorts, the rematch of the supreme court battle which we saw recently with of course the health care debate, but the same players will be arguing once again in front of the supreme court, this time
3:02 am
though, over the arizona immigration law. >> alisyn: and this one obviously such a hot topic, peter, everybody is talking about whether or not it's within arizona state rights to take illegal immigration in their own hands and we know that jan brewer staked her career and it's the solicitor general who will be there again arguing. tell us your legal take. >> dave: this is kind of ali frazier, 2. a lot of people thought that the solicitor general as the obamacare argument and were disappointed in the robustness of the argument that they saw mr. clemens, a lot more prepared and vigorous in his argument. it's different this time. elena kagan, justice supreme court stepped out of the case and there's always the possibility after tie. if there is he' a possibility of a tie, the law is out the window. and that could happen. >> clayton: i'm curious your take on this, too, now they
3:03 am
need to get just one individual to flip to support the obama administration, because before this thing had gone through the high court and five justices rebuffed the administration on all of them. >> dave: on another law involving arizona's licensing businesses that were dealing with illegal immigrants. >> alisyn: and you said the phi-- >> it stands the earlier decision invalidating the law will stand. >> alisyn: tie isn't stalemate. >> no, tie decides the law. >> clayton: here is what's all at stake and break it down. they need to verify the citizenship status. >> alisyn: i'll read it next time. that's a mouthful. >> alisyn: i'll read it next time. >> clayton: peter, where is the coffee. and the main crux of this thing. >> alisyn: and also a state crime to be in the u.s. unlawfully, not just a federal crime, a state cry.
3:04 am
>> require noncitizens to carry documents to prove they're in the united states and make it a state crime for should not work. and a way in agreement with federal law, we're not trying to do anything except enforce the federal law. the federal government is saying, listen this is proo he emptied. you don't have the right to take it into your own hands, arizona or any other state that adopted similar laws, we're in charge, leave it to us, don't be determining whether or not and how we should be enforcing our immigration rules, it's not up to you. the final oral argument this wednesday at sprek. and another case obviously everyone has been watching at the supreme court is that of obamacare, the care act, whether or not that will go forward and that until june, however, something very interesting is happening this
3:05 am
week and that is that a number of democrats are beginning to speak out against it. >> a lot of democrats and a lot of prominent democrats, including representative brad miller who came out and said this. i think we'd be better off if we'd dealt first with the financial system and other economic related issues and then come back to health care and a number of individuals who came out and barney frank claiming that suspects paid a price on health care and other senators, probably the one that went the furthest is the alabama representative who says i think the affordable care act is the piece of legislation in the past. >> i think a lot of folks say, what a lot of regular americans were saying when the obamacare regulations were going on, where are the jobs, where are the initiatives to create jobs in america? yeah, health care is important, but should it have been the focus at that point? so, when it's so controversial and when so many americans are
3:06 am
against obamacare, you are going to see the democrats stepping out. >> who knows what goes on inside the oval office, but if what was reported at the time was true, there were argument inside the administration that the president should have done it in a more incremental piecemeal fashion not the choning of the health care-- >> because you had bipartisan support with certain caveats. >> people in the country would have loved to have the the pre-existing conditions go away. >> not write that off the books. >> there would have been things that people were very much behind and congressman, a democrat of california who says they should have done it in more digestful pieces. and most speaking out are retiring, at the end of this session, so, it's easy, they've been-- >> do you think you can tell the truth now.
3:07 am
>> and it's a way for congress to leave before they can tell the truth. all right, let's bring in this morning, while the the rest of the world is rushing to bail out europe. timothy geitner stays out against this. will they redistribute wealth overseas? >> and great economists, good morning, peter, how are you? >> i'm good. happy sunday, shouldn't we be jumping into europe and giving them tens of hundreds of millions dollars and work out their problems, shouldn't we? >> absolutely not. when we had our financial crisis, the germans lectured us that they didn't need to assist us, we were well capable of manning our own affairs and the americans shouldn't be telling anybody how to tell, they're bigger than we are, the european union economically. >> as goes europe so goes the u.s.?
3:08 am
i mean, if they crumble and if some countries default. does it get us in trouble as well. >> let's look what it means, passing people in indiana and forcing them to send money to washington and send it to italy and the germans are capable of doing that themselves and want to tax themselves to do it. why should americans pay for a problem, when they're well capable of paying for it themselves. >> the response to that. only if it comes back to haunt us, it didn't behoof us to pay for it. >> there's a certain moral hazard here, i don't know that we should be solving europe's problem when europe has the financial resources and they should not be able to hold us hostage. if we give them money it isn't clear they'll use it wisely. look what they're doing to greece. greece's problems are not going to be solved by the bailout. greece is impoverished. their unemployment rate is
3:09 am
almost at great depression revels. 22.8, and the peak in the united states was .9. giving money to the europeans is like giving medical aid to medieval barber. >> clayton: i mean, what exactly is wrong structurally with europe? i thought we were coming out of this. and now we start hearing now, more troubles in europe troubles in europe and could bring down the u.s. economy. what are the troubles there? >> well, we have, to go with the common currency in the united states we have fiscal unions. the bottom line is that folks in manhattan are wealthier and you folks attack mississippi aren't doing the show from mississippi. to do a system with health care, they don't have that in europe, there's no way that germany is required to assist greece with the health care issues, or pension issues or what have you. they don't have fiscal union, but yet, they have the same
3:10 am
currency, the competitiveness of their products and the cost in the united states is determined by the strength of the german economy, not the greek economy. europe is misstructured and that means a change which means that germany has to become more generous, something that germans are not inclined to do. to do something what an industrialist does or wants to. >> i like that analogy. >> and i like when you can use duessel dorf. >> this early in the morning, i can say that. >> we're going to let them go down in the obama lexicon good or bad depending on the dayment at the same time, they apparently support the idea of bringing trillions of dollars to so-called poor countries to pay climate debt. and there's going to be, a conference on that and apparently the obama administration is for that. what are your thoughts? >> well, the obama
3:11 am
administration has the governing ideology, hard working american middle class folk on the blame for all the problems of the world. and should be taxed for all the sins of the past and essentially the notion that americans should pay to resolve global warming is that kind of thing. it's that global government thing and eventually obama will cave when it comes to europe unveiling them out and essentially, mr. obama doesn't believe in democracy. we're going to tax americans and send the money to unelected bureaucrats at the u.n. to redistribute wealth globally, it's a selling out of the united states. a great illustration, why anybody, but obama come november. >> and here is exactly what this summit looks like, peter and get you to comment on it. >> wealth transfers from rich countries to poorer ones in the name of fossstering green infrastructure and other green economy measures and also the new carbon taxes that could cost your 250 billion dollars
3:12 am
a year and that's what the summit will entail. your thoughts? >> well, we know that mr. obama has an agenda, one is to shut down the oil industry in the united states. and taxing it is a great way to do that and this is just another way of trying to accomplish what he wants to do domestically and get it on green technology and if it means impoverishing america. the same thing we don't do trade with china and lifting people out of poverty and okay to improverish poor indiana my state of choice and improverish poor minnesota or minneapolis this morning, and to improverish poor minneapolis to benefit the folks. it's easy for mr. obama to say that, when he's done at the white house he'll write a book and millions of dollars. the guy at that makes, 15, 18 dollars an hour shouldn't have to pay for this and he does. because they have a radical
3:13 am
left anyfor america and the world which means to weaken america and taken the right to put it in the hands of the united nations is weakening america. >> and peter, if this summit takes hold and if there is a redistribution from industrialized country and that we pollute the world and poorer countries, we give them money to help combat all of that sort of pollution, where is that 250 million dollars a year going to come from? well, it's going to come out of the united states federal budget ultimately. and the poor guy in indiana is not going to pay it directly, he's going to be taxed and the money goes to washington so about 1 1/2% u.s. grosse pointe woods, a sizable summit, just a tad more is not available for domestic programs and financing military and where is it going to, do you think that mr. obama is going to cut medicaid? do you think he's going to cut the money going into obamacare?
3:14 am
no he's going to take it out of the military. another thing he would like, the day will come that we'll be defending the persian gulf and bows and arrows to pay the taxes. that's about 25% of-- that's more like 40% of the u.s. military budget where he's going to take it and again, it's the program po weaken america, from a president who doesn't believe in america and policies are slowly destroying america. >> when i see a gondola in the hudson river, i will call you, i hope not-- >> remember the mouse that roars with the long boat. >> you're painting a brightening picture. something i hope we will never see, but appears that we have a historical responsibility to the world to give them our money. >> peter more rissi, thank you for coming in with your opinion on this. >> take care of yourself. >> clayton: good to see you. >> alisyn: and an archery course. >> clayton: now you need the
3:15 am
gondola. >> alisyn: let's get to your headlines. a fox news alert. brand new reports that iran is building its own copy of that u.s. spy drone that went down in the country late last year and exporting data from the drone and you can remember that official remember the drone was loss and of course, the drone is outfitted with some of the world's most advanced surveillance technology, there are concerns it not only keep it themselves and sell it to other nations. a 33-year-old mystery closer to solved. investigators say they discovered a so-called suspicious stain where they think that etan patz might be buried. a piece of the wall where it was found is sent to the fbi lab. the former workshop of patz's neighbor, miller. the 75-year-old is now a person of interest in the case who reportedly saw the little
3:16 am
boy the night before he vanished back in 1979. and a secret service scandal is getting even uglier this morning and some of the calls led to the the agents back at the hotel in colombia may have been underage. if that turns out to be true. some of the agents could face criminal charges and u.s. investigators on the ground in colombia and the investigation could end up costing taxpayers millions of dollars. chaos erupts on the campus of kent state university and police try to break up thousands of students partying. partying. >> it happened during the annual event dubbed college fest. they were forced to use rubber bullets to stop fighting and throwing of beer bottles. and of course, that college
3:17 am
has a history of sad episodes. one of the most influential figures in the richard nixon white house, chuck olson has died. the tough as nails special council spent nearly a year for his role in the watergate scandal and later he went surgery and a clot to the brain and they died from complication froms that surgery, colson was 80 years old. >> clayton: and let's check with rick for the nor'easter. >> rick: kind of, it's kind of heading inland so it's kind of a southeaster. and the stay over the ocean. that's not the case and it doesn't matter. windy and rainy across the mid atlantic and the northeast tonight and talking about a major snowstorm across the interior sections and this is problematic because the leaves are on the trees and that means it's heavy on the trees and heavy snow, see a lot of
3:18 am
power outages throughout tonight into tomorrow and for much of the day tomorrow and then record heat across the west and not talking about winter at all. take a look at the radar, everybody dealing with this, from florida, stretching towards rein right now. the heaviest across the mid atlantic and watch how it moves through time. about the next two days, right here is where a rain is right now. the rain across the mid atlantic, by midnight, very heavy rain here in across parts of eastern pennsylvania, new jersey and towards new york city and start to see the snow move in here and throughout the day tomorrow, heavy snow across western pennsylvania and west virginia and western maryland and snowfall totals in this thing, maybe up to about 18 inches so that's a lot of snow and it's a lot of snow when you think how heavy it is this time of year, very heavy snow, it's going to fall on the fully leaved out trees, that's the problem. and dealing with today. all kinds of records,
3:19 am
washington, montana, arizona, at break records today. 104, obviously. all right, guys. >> wow. >> yesterday we were update you on the george zimmerman case as relates to the trayvon martin shooting. and as early as next week, they have the papers watched up and dig out the discharge information and concerns that the safety could be at risk and he was spotted yesterday wearing a bullet-proof vest under his suit when we saw him in court and so there he is, with a bullet-proof vest underneath. and there are concerns if he gets out and-- >> sure, it's out of the ordinary that he would go out of state to be safer and folks from that community, there'd be less opportunity to do harm if someone want today do harm and the lawyer says he's trying to collect the money to take the bail and we heard from his lawyer, mark omara,
3:20 am
about it and here is what he had to say. . >> you know, just these concerns, even though i think things, there is a, more information given at the hearings than has ever been out before. i think there's still a lot of emotions wrapped around the case and we're worried that some of those are negative and may play out against george. >> it was interesting to hear what the defense attorneys for other high profile clients recommend in situations like this, how to keep the clients safe. get him out of florida, keep him from ever going out in public, and that seems like a heavy toll for the next year or whatever it will be. and then, never leave him alone. somebody has to be with him at all times, in case there's a threat. never leave him alone. it takes this kind of 24 hours assistance. >> and remember, that george zimmerman had gone to a
3:21 am
website and his own website and the money needs are tremendous going forth and my understanding mr. o'mara is not taking a fee, but the costs are going to mount. >> similar to casey anthony, hiding vanished off the map and popped up in ohio at one point and meanwhile, we heard the apology yesterday in the courtroom from george zimmerman, it was an odd, it was an odd moment because we don't usually hear apologies like that during that type of proceeding because it wasn't the actual trial. this was a bond-- >> that's true. >> it's a bond hearing. >> bail, absolutely. >> and we heard from the family yesterday, just wasn't buying it, take a listen. >> and had ulterior motives and to do this at the bond hearing, first of all, you take the stand and you don't present any evidence and you're supposed to be addressing the court, but then you try to sneak an apology in to the family.
3:22 am
it's just a very insincere. >> alisyn: that was on the judge jeanine show. and saying that the new motor of george zimmerman's head, and looking at, wow it substantiates it. and he obviously was back on the ground somehow and head got cut and the family isn't sure that that photo is legit and that they have concerns about who provided it, who took it, and why there's only one photo, why there aren't more, let's listen to their lawyer again. >> it is real clear that it doesn't seem to be consistent with what zimmerman told the police about him and trayvon martin beating his head repeatedly into the pavement. in fact, when you look at it, they didn't have to stitch it up, didn't need bandages, didn't go to the hospital for it. how bad could it have been and
3:23 am
it's a situation where there's only one photo apparently. if it's that bad wouldn't a trained professional police department take multiple photos to see the extend of the injuries. >> alisyn: he raises a good point. if you didn't have to be stitched up. >> clayton: and went right to the police station. >> so we're talking about wlt photo is accurate and not talking about the expression of apology or regret and that's an effective lawyer trying to have an effect on people's opinions, with regard to whether in fact the evidence is real or not real. and that's what we'll see. we'll see this kind of intense emotional debate and it also goes back to the other issue, is in fact mr. zimmerman going to be safe on the outside, when emotional feelings run so high. >> all right. we'll have more on that case as we have information every day, new details out there. >> sure does.
3:24 am
>> big government going on the road. tracking you behind the wheel. is that legal? and to watch your every drive? and sorry, high school seniors, no showing for you to go to college, why? because it makes your classmates feel really bad. (bell rings)

♪ ♪ it's not unusual to find out i'm in love with you ♪ ♪ oh, oh, oh, oh >> that's a shot of the morning, what is that? the carlton flash mob?
3:28 am
>> yeah, fresh prince of bel air. and participating and it is, the nationwide dance craze and his real time is rivero and busting a move in the front row. that's the carlton. >> you can do that. >> when it was the carlton started? is that going back to the fresh prince? it was. >> clayton: people all over the country broke into the carlton at the same time to break this record. >> alisyn: why didn't somebody tell me? call me the next time there's a carlton flash mop. >> clayton: they're trying to confirm whether or not they broke the record and this many doing it around the world. >> it's been done before. >> clayton: operately. >> peter: looks lovely in denver, fantastic. >> clayton: some people are kind of phoning it in. >> peter: it's a dance style. >> clayton: we'll try to get
3:29 am
you an update whether or not-- >> and our senior producer has a favorite expression. it's the wussification of america. and finds stories everywhere that he believes are capturing that we're becoming a nation, and here is today's for you. high school seniors are not being allowed to trumpet their success of getting into the college of their choice because it might hurt some of their classmates' feelings. >> clayton: at the end of the semester, going off to college, you and your friends are picking the universities you're going to and maybe you wear some of the sweatshirts from the universities you're going to? but, no, you can't do it anymore until may 1st because it might hurt the feelings of people who didn't get into an ivy league school like you did. >> peter: the horace mann prep school.
3:30 am
can i wear a state cool sweatshirt. >> alisyn: no. >> peter: an ivy league, you can't wear the ivy league. >> alisyn: but other schools you're not supposed to be talking about where you got in. and here is what the note that was sent out. please don't congratulate students in public. >> peter: no high five. >> alisyn: no high five, no hugging, and please be sensitive so that if you see someone crying, you refer them to the college advisor office needily. peter, you're laughing at this. so-- >> and take a shot of gavin, i'm with you on that one. >> peter: that's absurd. come on. and go to see the college advisor. what do you do, section 8 the the people? send them to a psychiatric hospital at that point? >> you're walking down the hall, you just got accepted to harvard, or you're thrilled,
3:31 am
right. >> alisyn: yes. >> clayton: walking down the hall and accepted to harvard. >> alisyn: okay. >> clayton: and you know my response? i can't look at you. >> alisyn: you know what i do, i zip it. is that part of the wussification of america? let us know. >> alisyn: and tell us about this story, this is a good debate and it's really controversial, but possibly effective. there's a texas judge that has a very interesting way of sentencing people. it's shame punishment and he has just ordered that a 38-year-old man stand for the next four weekends with a sandwich board in front of the scene of the accident that he caused, an automobile accident in which he killed a 20-year-old young man because of drunk driving. >> clayton: so this is the public humiliation and you can see him standing there and look, you say it is effective, but when other people in the community that you live in, see this and you're having to apologize to the community in a way, you know, it raises some serious questions whether
3:32 am
or not it's effective. though, people are concerns that this violates civil liberties. >> peter: it's a difficult issue, obviously, a life is lost and a person is held accountable for it, but we were just talking about george zimmerman and accused of convicted of crimes and in that tape we take a look at the tape and see someone making a sign out across the street and saying, that man across the street killed this person. and so, at what point did we heap so much verbal abuse and shame on someone, can that turn to violence? the man across the street killed that person and obviously, that's true. but at what point does it begin to affect our ability to interact in a way? it's a really, really hard issue. and i think legally it's probably expensable and sound, but over time, is that what we
3:33 am
do in a society? i don't know. >> alisyn: years ago i followed somebody who had one of these shame punishments, that she was just the get away driver for like a robbery, so she had to go back in front of the store and hold a board, saying i commit add robbery against the store. that one seemed more effective because it's possible-- we don't know the guy's back story, the guy who killed the 20-year-old. we don't know if he is deeply depressed, if he's devastated by what he did, and going to ruin his life. >> peter: maybe it's better if he holds the sign and he holds it and says i'm grievously sorry and apologize for it and i need your forgiveness and i want to be redeemed? maybe that's the statement that we're looking to see. >> clayton: and not every organization agrees with this form of punishment or support. take a listen. >> for killing one of my best friends, i don't think it's
3:34 am
enough. 90 days and come out here and carry a sign for a saturday, it's not enough, for taking someone's life. >> i think it's a little barbaric, honestly. i feel like i'm rereading the scarlet letter that i read in high school when you think about this. i don't think it's fair. >> i think that maybe people will see this and say, you know, i don't want to see that when they go out and drink and drive and have to come home. maybe call a taxi this time. >> alisyn: good point, maybe it has a ripple effect for other people in the community. we want to know what you think. you can find us all on twitter. i'm ali@fox on twitter. are you on twitter. >> peter: yes. >> clayton: and friends@fox on the e-mail. >> peter: on a lighter note, president obama hopes to get
3:35 am
some laughs when he's up late this week. and joining us the great peter doocy. >> clayton: the president will be at the university of north carolina and university of colorado at boulder and university of iowa while in chapel hill a guest on late night with jimmy fallon. and the white house communications director explained that president obama will appear on jimmy fallon at unc chapel hill, preventing interest rates from doubling on student loans, back in november. the now former presidential candidate, congresswoman michele bachmann, and played a song with title too inappropriate for morning tv. . uproar came out and fallon came out and said he was sorry for the intro and accepted the apology. but the band leader kept his job and bachmann showed that
3:36 am
was a double standard. >> if that was michelle obama who came out on the stage and that song played for michelle obama, i have no doubt that they could have fired him. this wouldn't be tolerated if this was michelle obama, it shouldn't be tolerated if it's a conservative woman either. >> the first lady, michelle obama did appear on the jimmy fallon show after three months from a from congress twam bachmann and a tug-of-war in a funny sketch. >> clayton: and her husband, the president has another date with another jimmy, roasted by jimmy kimmel alt saturday's white house correspondent's dinner across town. >> alisyn: should be good. i'm excited, i'm going to that dinner. >> clayton: you are? >> i will be reporting back. >> clayton: outside or in the

the united states to be fitted with glass box data recorders starting in the year 2015. joining us with more on the former assistant director of the fbi in new york and president of the gavin group. nice to see thank you morning. >> my pleasure. >> so what is wrong with this? under the this law, basically the data would stay in the hand of ali or i, the driver of the vehicle until at which timed government had access to the data to find out the time of day, to validate claims made by the driver i guess in accidents or insurance issues, what's the problem here? >> if that's true, the extent of it. that's one thing, but you and i both know these things have a way of getting out of control, it's a slippery slope. and i can see black boxes and public transportation and airplanes and buses and what not, but black boxes in your car, i'm sure it's initiative
3:48 am
for you to get those put in and increase the insurance rates for the driver who is a bad driver or you can fail to pay that claim based on information provided by the black box. it's a very, very difficult proposition and very slippery slope. the government being able to look at things in a different way that they-- >> and in fact, some of the material that we have says the government would have the power to access these black boxes in a number of circumstances, including by court order. so, it's unclear exactly what the situation would be for them to get it, but what are the type of things that it could track? meaning, the speed you're going? what else? >> it could do that, one thing that concerns me, too, if you file an accident report and right now it's civil personalities for not having the black box, but are there

criminal penalties for filing a false report when you have an accident and this information within your car while it's supposed to be private. it can also be accessed. what else can happen? can a chip be put in here so that you have a gps tracking of every citizen's car, if in fact, that's the next step in the process? >> and one of the things to bring up, too, is the law enforcement officials, right? we've heard of corruption cases before. but are law enforcement vehicles, exempted from this? and some say, look, it it's inval invalidat invalidated. not in this car, but this car. >> that's a valid point. should it be in a government car and the big concern, you trade the car in, does the information on the box go with the car? so that the next individual looks like they have a record for speeding and they actually don't? and it's -- it needs to be thought out, i think, a little more than it has been.

>> the battle over nondiscrimination in vanderbilt's college is far from over. students put out a video to attract support and get the board's attention and let's take a look at it. >> the administration there the at vanderbilt seems to want to create tolerance and nondiscrimination, this all comers policy which is doing just the opposite of that. >> i'm concerned now that because of vanderbilt's
3:54 am
actions, they indeed now are, in my opinion, discriminating against the christian organizatio organizations. >> peter: to talk about this discrimination, vanderbilt university, and abby sutton. tell us about what's going on in the most recent campus and do you think you're going to be able to win this issue. >> good morning, thank you for having us. right now, as it stands, the board of trustees met last week and the administration has been misleading the students and the legislature in this matter. and as of right now we don't see them reversing the policy, but there is a bill and amendment in the legislature that could effectively do that. >> and what ambassador originally was there were two statements. the original statement for the organization was that criteria for officer selection includes personal commitment to jesus christ and commitment to the organization and demonstrated leadership ability.
3:55 am
the university said, take that out about jesus christ. and then you folks stepped into action. abby, what are your thoughts on this sunday morning, about this effort by vanderbilt? >> well, we just really want to convey that leadership does matter to maintain the integrity of our organization and that the inconsistency of the all comers policy and the not being applied across the board equally, and when they discriminate against new members by the nature of recruitment, whether their hair color, what they're wearing or activities they're involved in and the problem is that vanderbilt isn't consistently applying this policy and we don't want greek life to go away. i as a member of a sorority, i love greek life a part of it, but we want an apology 0 to all organizations including greek life. >> you say there's a double standard. where do we bring people together on this sunday morning? how do we get it done? are the christian groups now

going to step out of the university sanctioned organization structure? >> well, right now, 15 of the 30 organizations have said they're-- have either left campus already and said they're going to leave campus and that's half of the christian organizations on campus representing thousands of students and what we're really trying to do is rally alumni because they're not listening to the students so we really need more alumni. and go to vanderbilt religious to see more about this. >> peter: we'll see you again, keep us informed. good to see you. >> thank you for having us. >> peter: and a truck causing an explosion, the details and update on the driver's condition ahead. and this nascar driver sponsorship, espn saying it has political and religious overtones and a group has

4:02 am
lawyer, federal power. whose right is it to determine our immigration policy, the federal government or the state that's on the border that's trying to stave off more illegal immigrants coming in. >> peter: great, great question. the state of arizona and other states across the country saying listen, we're enforcing the law. and you've paid, federal government in the past, to enforce the federal law and enforcing the immigration issues. and some people expect the obama administration to say, listen, this is how we're going to control the immigration issue in the state of arizona we're such an important issue. >> clayton: what's at issue during the obamacare deliberation was the commerce laws, and what trumps the states right now and what's at stakes in the arizona immigration law is this. whether or not they can verify the status.
4:03 am
>> alisyn: i promised i was going to read this. >> clayton: and it's a mouthful. >> alisyn: this is the big sticking point. verify the citizenship status. >> clayton: yes. >> alisyn: of anyone. >> clayton: you've got it. >> alisyn: detained or arrested when there's quote, reasonable suspicion and that's the point, what's reasonable suspicion, you pull over somebody who looks hispanic. therefore at least then make it a state crime to be in the u.s. unlawfully is part of this, peter and the third on this, require noncitizens to carry documents to prove they're in the country legally. >> alisyn: and another reasonable suspicious issue, and that we talk make it a state crime for persons to try to work or seek work. and allowing our peace officer to act in good faith and the argument alley mentioned, well, this is going to be an opportunity for people to be discriminated against, but
4:04 am
there is no basis that we've seen for that, it's a fear. >> alisyn: that's right. >> peter: the legal issues are what is the supremacy clause say? what does preemption say, meaning did the federal government preempt and push the states out of the way in terms of immigration proceeds. and arizona saying, we're not doing immigration, we're enforcing the federal laws and we have that right. >> alisyn: it will be interesting to hear the final oral arguments this wednesday at the supreme court. and meanwhile, the supreme court has been on the mind of everyone because they have been hearing the arguments about obamacare, the affordable care act. those, that decision won't come down until june, but something interesting is happening and that is that you're seeing a bit of a defection, by democrats. or democrats who are now seeking out against the affordable health care act because they believe for a host of reasons it shouldn't have been passed in the
4:05 am
wholesale manner that it was. >> and interestingly, some democrats are leaving office and as you pointed out. they're unfettered, unshackled. they can't do it while in congress, but here is one. broad miller of north carolina, a democrat. he says i think we'd all be better off if we related to the economic issues that come back to health care. that was an argument and didn't realize that all of the oxygen was going to be sucked out of the room dealing with health care. and thought he had high approval ratings, and dealing with economic cries ace and why wasn't the job the very first thing. >> and reflecting what a lot of people are saying then and now, why wasn't the focus on jobs? and you see kind of these pockets of resistance popping up in the united states. and i mean, in fenway park, the other day, and i understand, they showed a president obama video about the century mark at fenway park, there with a booing in
4:06 am
the stands. so in some traditionally democratic areas there are some areas of concern perhaps in temps of the political issues. >> alisyn: and i think it's interesting what some are saying, congressman cardoza of california, he criticized his own party's handling the health care act and should have been done in digestible pieces and had they done it more incremental in peace meal and interesting they use the word digestible. the american public would have been able to get their arms around it a little better perhaps in smaller chunks than in this, you know, sort of massive overhaul. >> and you made the superb point earlier, ali, who objects to the notion that an insurance companies should be a to be able to discriminate based on giving care, so that would have been an easy thing to do quickly. >> alisyn: pre-existing conditions, a quick one.
4:07 am
>> clayton: a number of areas it could have been tackled and we've been following the trayvon martin shooting case and george zimmerman yesterday in court giving somewhat emotional apology, maybe some would argue and others might disagree with it, now, of course, he's going to be out this week and right now, we are he a learning, yesterday, you see him in the charcoal colored suit, he had a bullet-proof vest underneath and there's concern growing for his safety once he leaves this week, and what will happen, whether or not he needs to wear a bullet-proof vest on regular basis, stay at home. there are a number of conditions and precedent given the casey anthony case and right in the same area of th this, central florida, what do you do with her when she's released, keep her hidden so there's not outrage. >> alisyn: they did do, under the cover of darkness, and they have to do it for a long time before his trial and if the threats his family hat gotten, is an indication of
4:08 am
how the next year will go, he will be in hiding and monitored around the clock and one of the recommendations never to have somebody leave his side. >> peter: and we heard his lawyer, speak out about the importance of safety and kind of a walk and talk yesterday. let's hear what he had to say. >> you know, just the concerns, even though i think things -- there is more information given at these hearings than has ever been out before. i think a lot of emotions wrapped around the case and we're worried that some of those are negative and that may play out against george. >> and yesterday, we also heard as i mentioned at the beginning there, that apology. >> alisyn: on friday. >> clayton: on friday, i'm sorry, we talked about it on show yesterday, george zimmerman, making that apology that seemingly came out of nowhere, and for the the trayvon martin family had this to say about the apology, not really buying it, let's take a
4:09 am
listen. >> and really had ulterior motives and to do that at the bond hearing and first of all, he takes the stand and you don't present any evident and you're supposed to be addressing the court, but then you try to sneak an apology into the family and it does seem very insincere. >> you can't blame the family for thinking that was an orchestrated moment. why didn't they get to make a statement impact statement. >> peter: victim impact statement isn't allowed because there's been no determination of a victim, no convictses and only have a victim impact statement at the time of sentencing. >> alisyn: we know there is a victim. >> peter: there is a victim, but is it a criminal act or a victim of an act that's not criminal. >> clayton: and you think this is theaterics, his lawyer seems to think there was ulterior motives. >> peter: it had to be theaterics to get the message across very often, the issue is was his apology and
4:10 am
statement of regret heart felt. the lawyer for the family not heart felt. i agree with alley, probably nothing that george zimmerman can ever say that would molify them or feel better about what happened on that day, nothing. >> alisyn: interesting case, meanwhile, your he headlines, we have a fox news alert for you right now. iran claiming they're building a duplicates of u.s. spy drone last year. you remember that they did admit that the drone was lost, that they said it doesn't contain any sensitive information, of course the drone is equipped with some of the world's most advanced surveillance technology and the concern is that the iranian government will not only use the technology itself, but also sell it to other interested nations. bombshell allegations emerging in the secret service scandal. reports that some of the call girls who allegedly partied with some of the agents in
4:11 am
colombia may be underage. if that's true, some agents could face criminal charges. and u.s. officials on the ground in colombia and word the investigation could end up costing taxpayers millions of dollars. a terrifying moment outside of an mcdonald's in california. >> oh (bleep). >> alisyn: that giant explosion coming from a propane tank in the back of a customer's truck. 100 degree temperatures causing it to build too much pressure and driver was badly injured and two kid inside the truck and luckily, not hurt. and mcdonald's evacuated and no one inside was hurt. those are your headlines. >> clayton: thank you, alisyn. still ahead. new clues discovered in the etan patz case. will investigators be able to find remains from 30 years ago? dr. michael bodney is here to analyze that. >> peter: and who is the cat now? and the house cat takes on a bear. wait until you see who wins?

4:16 am
preserve. concrete is the fbi's friend in in case where it keeps out moisture, keeps out bacteria and keeps out bugs, so, that's going to be helpful in preserving and absolutely they'll be able to find, teeth, bone, lottoing this, easily able to find dna, and determine who the bones belong to if it's there. >> alisyn: if the body is there jo what are the issues in terms of actually proving what the cause of death was, and who killed this beautiful little boy? >> that kind of evidence may be long lost because the issue of cause of death depends a lot on soft issues if there's any kind of asphyxiation. >> peter: strangelation or choking. >> strangelation, ability to breathe and those are largely injuries to the soft tish sauce that we identify.
4:17 am
>> peter: lips and tongue. >> and cause of death may not be able to prove from the autopsy or presence there, but the circumstances may help on that. as far as whodunit? there may have been some trace evidences at the time, maybe blood or hair from the perpetrator and it's possible, but unlikely that that would remain-- >> and one of the most disturbing things. there are so many, but the picture on the new york post this morning, i don't know if i can hold it up, it shows the paint and it shows all of etan's little friend here, they used to kind of consider this a playroom an as evidenced by the picture and yet, 30 years ago, investigators for whatever reason, when there was fresh concrete poured didn't think that they wanted to spend the money to dig it up? >> yeah, that's disturbing
4:18 am
because remember at the time there was, new york city, new york state, the united states the world were concerned about where is etan patz and one of the places you want to look for is a nearby place that he would have willingly gone to, after all, he's a kid on street when the school bus is there and all if somebody picked him up and dragged him away and yelled and screamed they would have heard about it so it had to be a situation where he went willingly with somebody and he would go willingly to a place he was woman with. and based on your expertise it's become america's if not the world's medical examiner, but you've dealt with a lot of victims and family and when we see the pictures of young etan's father looking down at the site where they're digging. what do you say to somebody like that, as a medical examiner, looking at remains or a body. >> it's tough. you have to speak with the
4:19 am
family and in this instance, explain to the family, if the family knows, how much benefit that the united states had from this incident, all kind of protections for children have arisen because of what happened to etan, so that there are thousands of families who benefitted specifically and i think as far as etan goes, if in fact, it was taken away by somebody he trusted to a place that he trusted and was familiar with, which he wasn't familiar with many places, and if he died, he would have died very suddenly wouldn't have had much pain and suffering, affixa, you know, suffocation, a very painless. >> alisyn: well, dr. baden, thank you for coming in, and appreciate it. a reminder that it wasn't in vain and one of the first milk carton children.

4:26 am
bacon. this is something you would make on your show. >> absolutely, yes, it's in keeping with the theme of a budget. a cheaper cut of meat, a pork shoulder instead of a pork tender loin, more flavor, a little more fat and more time to cook it, but it's so worth it, it's got a ton of flavor and so, that's-- >> and feeding people for this amount of money? >> no, you need more vegetables, to be in season when possible because when you think about it, when you take the time to truck vegetables across the country or even across the continent or across the water, it costs a lot of money, gas is expensive. if you buy vegetables that are in season, grown near you, they are he' going be to be cheaper. >> clayton: you're doing something easy, potatoes with lemon not terribly difficult, but tasty. >> they're wonderful and just taking the time and the lemon and potatoes, and comes down in the oven, a great dish. >> and pieces of lem nonin

4:28 am
>> and here is the final tally, add it up. and for $51 for six to eight people, candied bacon pork rose, lemon potatoes, apair gus and strawberries and whipped cream and the beef is locally farmed, it costs a little more money, but worth it in the long run. >> that's right, come on over. >> clayton: be sure to watch, called married with dishes and great to see real people doing cooking shows, and rick with the candy bacon. >> what are you doing? >> and i do. and yes-- >> and look at this, coming up on the show we've got this, a little girl hailed as a hero after placing this phone call. listen to this. >> and just in there and first, in her mouth. >> she is breathing, yes, but her eyes are closed. >> how she saved her grandmother's life. >> and president obama is

frankly, i don't get too excited about this. every time that a president is running for reelection, that's always the issue, republicans, democrats, you know, there are tremendous advantages to incumbency and one of them is the family and also, just in terms of image, you get to fly around on, in air force one, it's hard to separate what a president does politically from what he does as part of his office, sure, he's going to get to fly around in airports, and we wouldn't want him flying the new york shuttle, as a commander-in-chief and i've got to say, as somebody who's traveled a lot with presidents, when that plain comes into, you know, a smaller area that can take a 747, but not a big city, it's a thrill. i mean, it is quite a campaign thing to see the huge plane with the united states of america on it, you know, it's pretty impressive. >> right. >> a lot of americans, chris
5:19 am
are talking about thrills and carnahan and columbia, is our prize safe, vice-president safe? is washington going to really respond to this issue or are main line politicians afraid? >> i think that washington is going to respond. the i don't know whether it's congressional hearings or the secret service itself. interestingly, people on all sides say that mark sullivan, the director of the secret service has taken this seriously and has responded aggressively. i mean, look, this is a great agency and secret service agents are great servants to america, literally people who promise to take a bullet for the president, that if the president were in harm's way, they would jump in front of pa attacker, and risk their lives to protect his, and anybody that they're protecting. so, you have to add hire the agency. obviously, something went wrong in columbia. you have to wonder whether there's a slip in discipline.

5:48 am
away from something and you're a little scared of something that's not been trustworthy, then there's a period of which you're not asking the questions because you don't know where to go to, but then people always come around and say, i know that there's a purpose for my life. i know that there's a mission in my life because my soul begs for it. and it's longing for it and i think they think we see a reverse and i'm seeing that among young people today in their 20's, in my church and many others are coming back in droves, they don't feel i'm about to get kick and the glare-- >> and we don't go because we're obliged or want something, that's a good shift. >> alisyn: that was beautiful and kicking you. >> i saw that. >> and coming up on the show this illegal immigrant has been arrested 35 times and feds say they cannot deport him. why? we'll tell you and talk to the police chief who's had him in

criticized on the obamacare argument for not being particularly exciting and the issue is clear, the federal government said arizona you don't have the right to add to federal law. you don't have the right to verify the citizenship status of anyone stopped or detained when there is reasonable suspicion, the state of arizona saying, listen, we have a parade of horribles here in the state of arizona and in the brief they listed them, in fact they said the federal government posted signs in the state of arizona, warning travellers, danger, public warning, travel not recommended, active drug and human smuggling area and they are saying, we're only acting consummate with the federal government's only rules and look at the crisis we are facing. >> alisyn: and the federal government's argument it is only the purview of the federal government to handle all immigration matters, because, they are of national importance, not just for one state and don't want piecemeal, patch work, one state doing this and another
6:07 am
doing that and i want it to be an entire comprehensive policy, however this is political. i mean, it will take root, whatever happens on wednesday, oral argument will be made wednesday in the supreme court and the political campaign, presidential campaign rests on a lot of that and this is from a international think tank, center for american progress, 16.6 million people in the u.s., citizens have at least one undocumented family member. so, those 16 million people can vote, not the undocumented ones but the ones with family members and it affects millions of americans. >> peter: and there is a big component and a politician argument as well, because people say, listen, my job has been taken, i'm afraid of crime, afraid of paying for people that shouldn't be in the country. and, so, there is a political overlay but there is a legal overlay, arizona says, listen, we are just doing what the feds have asked us to do and the federal government says no and the u.s. constitution says, we're in charge. >> clayton: interesting and you have heard controversy on both
6:08 am
sides of this as people try to walk back from their positions and companies are saying we have been hurt by the law, and have not been able to hire and get as many people as we need to do our job, interesting badebated, it will unfold on wednesday and health care, now, we are learning more about the health care law, as nancy pelosi said you need to vote for it to learn what is in it and, pass it to learn what is in it and now the democrats have learned what is actually in it and are not happy with it including brad miller who is a democrat from north carolina. and a number of democrats, coming forward and saying, similar things to what brad is saying here, he says i think we would all have been better off if we had dealt first with the financial system and other related economic issues and then come back to health care. people writing on twitter say, wait a second, guys, the first thing president obama did in office was the stimulus and others say it didn't do anything on housing and the stimulus didn't do what it was intended to do, necessarily and a lot of people say it should have been jobs, jobs, jobs, not health
6:09 am
care. >> alisyn: and what is interesting is brad miller is a democrat and not a lone voice, many democrats are coming out and speaking out for the first time, against obamacare or the affordable care act including, congressman barney frank, people who voted for it, dong man dennis cardoza from california have different criticisms of it but basically all think it will be a liability for democrats and for the president, come the presidential election. >> peter: some polls show the majority of americans want obamacare, ruled uninstitutional or -- unconstitutional or repealed and take that with job losses in the country and it is a difficult combination, especially when you make the argument, why weren't we addressing jobs first instead of health care. >> alisyn: now, this case, some of you weighed in on it, a controversial sentence a texas judge handed down to a 38-year-old man, a driver in a drunk driving accident, who ended up killing a young man, a
6:10 am
20-year-old. now, the defendant, has to wear a sign for the next four weekends, he has to go back to the scene of the accident and wear a sign saying i killed somewhere here at this intersection, and you can see, that he is clearly not happy with his punishment there, and, it is a controversial one. >> clayton: and we had a heated debate on it, legal debate on it, earlier on the show. take a listen: >> what are we going to do next, brand people's foreheads, saying you are a criminal? the fact of the matter is, that in a civilized society this is not a proper... >> no, no, look. >> form of punishment. >> why is it vengeance? it is awareness, like, look, this is what could happen, these are the ramifications, you have those two glasses of wine and think it is a harmless dinner and get behind the wheel and don't react fast enough to hit the brake and it is tragic, and, a question we are facing with
6:11 am
the george zimmerman issue, safety, now, as he's released, if a vigilante came after him, what happens to this guy and peter, you pointed out earlier, you can see another guy across the street scrawling on the sign, saying, hey, the guy across the street killed my friend. >> peter: and how do you protect the person and what does it cost to protect them and what is the balancing test? in the end, a lot of people believe in forgiveness and also believe in justice and the issue becomes, is it the appropriate form of justice before redemption, should there be a form of revenge or punishment and a lot of people believe our criminal justice system is about punishment and he's only getting two years in jail and a lot of other states, he would have had more and if he has to put up four days of that... >> alisyn: of course but our criminal justice system is supposed to be about deterrence and sending a message to other
6:12 am
people, so that one obviously sends a loud and clear message but it is hard to measure the message, you don't know how many people are driving past. >> clayton: you bring up a great point, peter does the deterrent for a longer sentence deter someone from getting behind the wheel, do you see fewer duis in new york. >> in my mind, a lot of studies with regard to deterrence show there is no deterrence, people act in ways they shouldn't be acting. certainly in the criminal justice system, whether it will stop other people from drunk driving and killing other people, time will tell, or is it a notion to get attention? maybe, maybe it is the future, maybe it's not. you don't see it very often. we see community service and people out on chain gangs and roads and parks cleaning up. that is the same thing, because they see that and say that person has done something bad and so it is holding someone out in the community and saying this
6:13 am
is a bad person, for this act. how do we move on to the next act to make it better for everybody. >> alisyn: right. well a sign is a more clear message than a chain gang but you have all weighed in and please keep them coming, send it to us at or twitter, fftrend on twitter would be great. >> clayton: coming up more than a billion dollars of imf global funds are missing, and that is not stopping jon corzine from bundling money for president obama, one man says not so fast and we'll hear from him. >> peter: high schoolers getting elaborate with the invitation to the prom, music videos and beyond, is it over the top? we'll debate it. next. ♪

6:18 am
else. but, now, we're talking about big elaborate things, that might work, doc. >> listen, it may well have worked not because she would have liked you. see, right now it is about celebrity and performance and, it isn't about the girl, you know, it is about the spectacle and the narcissism involved so you don't even necessarily have to be focused on the girl. what you want is a big audience, and, it is sick. not even normal. >> alisyn: i mean, is this the byproduct of reality tv, where everybody is a star for 15 minutes? you have to star in your own prom-posal to get any attention? >> that's exactly right. this is the direct descendant of reality tv, and, facebook, and all the ways that young people are cleved from their real emotion and it's not enough to go to the prom, you have to perform at the prom, a many reality tv series and the trouble with that is, it extinguishes your real feelings

6:25 am
willing to span the loss with your personal fortunes and allow them to be compensated and made whole? >> congressman -- >> either yes or no. it is fairly simple. >> congressman, i don't think that this will go unresolved. >> peter: the man leading the crusade to retrieve customer funds, the president of hard capital management, stanley hard. good morning, stanley. >> good morning, nice to be on with you. >> you invested 10 million of your own clients' funds and $700,000 of your own funds. what does it mean now, that senator corzine is bundling more than a half million dollars for president obama, what does it do for him? >> well, first of all, my reaction when i saw the news on friday was really, this is just another brazen right minder of the cronyism and corruption in which just permeates our whole
6:26 am
financial system and political system and is doing damage to the economy but from his point of view he hasn't been known as a savvy trader and lost a lot of money before being booted out of goldman sachs and lost a lot of money on his european bond invest in mf global but this is the best investment he has made and seems to have earned him a get out of jail card from the obama administration. >> clayton: hypocrisy and loses the other money and is able to somehow find money and raise it for president obama and i have to ask you, you are leading the crusade to get back the investors dollars, corzine and mf global have lost, where are you on that and how are you trying to get the money back? >> okay, first of all, i'm part of a group which has come together, spontaneously, a lot of people competitors of each other, i'm not really the leader of the group. i have been active in it. but, we are pursuing all avenues. we have representation in bankruptcy court, a big part of the problem now because of the way the bankruptcy was structured makes it difficult for us, for customers who should
6:27 am
have had priority to recover the money and one job i've had taken on for myself is trying to brief congressmen so they can stay on it as well, because, the cftc, the regulatory body of the government, that should be looking out for us, and the department of justice, largely has been missing in action through this whole thing which i think is -- is in itself a scandal and deserving of further investigation. fortunately, we have had people help us main from the house of national surfaces committmmitt s national surfaces committervice we have a hearing in the senate which will make progress as well. >> peter: after the bernie madoff scandal the federal government stepped in quickly and moved on it. why don't we see movement with regard to senator corzine and really one of the biggest collapses we have seen in this country? >> absolutely. well, i mean, you can draw your own conclusions, i don't have a smoking gun but the fact obama received millions of dollars of campaign money over the years, either from corzine directly or
6:28 am
bundled by him, the fact that the obama administration, apparently the kingpin strategy, a cornerstone of it is to paint the republicans as being the corrupt, fat-cat wall streeters while, as it turns out, if that he biggest, most corrupt fat cat on wall street is none other than jon corzine, a prime supporter of obama and major fund-raiser, that blows up their strategy a little bit and may explain why they are dragging their feet. >> clayton: stanley hard, thanks for sharing your thoughts this morning, appreciate it. >> thank you very much. >> peter: coming up, one state using stimulus money to buy lead light bulbs. should the government be using your tax dollars to push its green agenda. >> clayton: and he was an instants internet sensation for creating the first cardboard arcade and now it is turning into cash for college. we'll meet the 9-year-old behind cane's arcade. coming up, there he is! need any help?

6:36 am
on this, the summer tied of the story and there is a winter side of the story, and that is where we've got heavy snow that is going to fall tonight, through all day tomorrow. anywhere across the area, west virginia and western pennsylvania and western new york. we'll see a lot of areas, over a foot of snow and maybe a few 18-inch snowfall totals, hard to believe for this time in april and we're talking about heavy, wet snow on top of the trees, will bring a lot of trees down, major tree damage and power outages with the storm. a big one on hand and is also a rainy storm, look at the forecast for the day today, the snow starts tonight and for the most part, coastal areas heavy rain moving in this afternoon and very windy conditions, so, the rain and the wind, we'll be seeing probably power outages, just from that. and areas will see in excess of 3 to 4 inches of rain. there is a drought going on here, and we need it and it will be a lot. the southeast, scattered rain showers across the areas of florida, aside from that, clearing out and we'll see a pretty nice day and plenty of sunshine across texas, into the
6:37 am
northern plains, a very nice day, a lot of sunshine and temps, fairly seasonal and across the west, not just the southwest, records broke, look at that, 81 degrees in helena, montana. back to you, guys. >> alisyn: thanks, a nine-year-old's creativity with cardboard pushed him into the national spotlight when a video about his project went viral on the internet. let's watch into the next thing i built was a soccer game. and, they'll have blockers, and... >> clayton: adorable and now, his future will be a whole lot easier because his cardboard creations are turning into cash for college. >> peter: the nine-year-old joins us now, along with the filmmaker. good morning. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> peter: tell us about the arcade and how it became such a hit.
6:38 am
>> cane? >> i... i built a box and i... [inaudible] money to play, and it went from there, your father tells the story, you would never walk by an arcade without going in. you had to go in and would take apart your toys to see how they worked and became obsessed with building it and, you came to the auto parts store and did you hear about it first or just happened upon it and you couldn't believe why other people were not playing in this arcade? >> yes. i happened upon it and i have a 96 corolla with a broken door handle and, i stopped in the part of town where you can get a good deal and i saw this kid, behind these boxes, running this arcade. >> alisyn: and you thought the arcade was so spectacular, that it was worthy of a documentary.
6:39 am
what were you hoping? what message were you hoping to put out, with this video that has now gone viral and you told me, the hit... 2 million hits today. >> clayton: i looked at it on video this morning, up to 2.9 million views. >> alisyn: almost 3 million views. what message were you trying to capture? >> you know, when i was playing the games, cane would run the arcade, and, at one point i was shooting some paper soccer and when i scored a goal, he crawled into the box and pushed tickets out from inside the box, and when he did that, it brought me back to when i was a kid, when i was his age, and, reminded me how and why i used to make things, and so as a filmmaker it spoke to me and inspired me to try to capture that part of childhood. >> clayton: one of the amazing things is that you organize on facebook, hey, let's have everyone come down to his arcade and play and he's out with his father, grabbing pizza and you
6:40 am
guys come back and, boom, there are hundreds and hundreds of people waiting in line to play and, it brings a tear 0 your eye, when you see it and hear the video, just to see his face, he gets incredibly excited and now you have met with a nasa scientist and you have money for college. what did you think when you saw all the people outside? >> i think that people... [inaudible] arcade. >> clayton: and did you ever in your wildest dream think it would be this large of a success? >> no. >> peter: what do you want to do with the rest of your life? >> i want to be like somebody who invents games. >> alisyn: you are well on your way, caine, if we come to your arcade, how much do you charge us to play? >> $2. >> clayton: you can afford... >> alisyn: that's a bargain. but, the second time, how much do you charge? >> $2.
6:41 am
>> clayton: fantastic. were you surprised, we'll leave it here, were you surprised at the success of this documentary? >> of course. and i mean, when i put it up to -- the goal was to raise $25,000 for caine, and at the end of the first day i raised 60,000 and now it is $180,000 and we have a matching grant of $250,000, so, for every dollar donated to his scholarship fund, dollar for dollar they are helping us start the arcade foundation to help other kids and inspire their creativity and entrepreneurship. >> clayton: my friend, john gruber put it on his web site, if you watch the video and don't have a tear in your eye, when you're done, you are not hooked up right. >> alisyn: thanks so much for sharing it with us. >> thanks for having me. >> clayton: coming up on the show, a champion body boarder killed by a great white shark, is this a -- is a tv show to blame in we'll dive into this and, we'll report, you decide.
6:42 am
>> peter: and folks are getting light bulbs paid for by you, the taxpayer. copd makes it hard to breathe,
6:43 am
6:44 am
so i wasn't playing much of a role in my own life, but with advair, i'm breathing better so now i can take the lead on a science adventure. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator, workintogether to help improve ur lung function all day. advair won't replace fast-acting inhalersor sudden symptoms and should not be used more than twice a day people with copd taking advair may have a higher chance of pneumonia advair may increase your risk of osteoporosis
6:45 am
and some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking advair. if you're still having difficulty breathing, take the lead. ask your doctor if incling advair get your first fl prescription free and save on refills at >> peter: in one florida county, leftover stimulus money is used to provide thousands of energy kit with lead lights and energy efficient shower heads. and toilets and could your tax money be used elsewhere? joining us is the president of citizens against government waste, good morning. there is a $3 million federal grant to seminole county and $125,000 left over, and, the federal government didn't want that money and so now are handing out energy kits, to 8 or
6:46 am
9,000 people. why is that bad? >> well it is literally flushing the money down the toilet. there is no reason the money couldn't be censent back to washington and it literally takes an act of congress to get money back once it is sent out from federal agencies and senator marco rubio introduced a bill called the refund act, that will allow the states to return money they don't want. right now, they can't really do that. >> peter: i'm gratified you speak of the taxpayers so often and i'm a fan of yours but the question becomes, why would we want to give the money back to the federal government, to waste it in the ways that we know they waste it, here people are getting lead lights, they are getting lead night lights and toilet tummies to conservative water and shower heads and why is not a good thing for the 8 or 9,000 people in the county that >> i didn't know it was a new entitlement, everyone in the
6:47 am
country would have the federal government paying for lighting and it is ridiculous. the money could go back under the refund act and be used to reduce the deficit and would not go to another federal program, which is how things occur now and the state of florida and return high speed rail stimulus, that went to other high speed rail programs but if they want to say no, they can use it to reduce the deficit which affects everybody, not the few thousands people that might get the... >> peter: it sounds like a smart idea. let's change the way e we do it. a county where a municipality doesn't want the money, send it back to reduce the deficit, not to be wasted on other nonsense, right? >> absolutely, because, now with -- it will get spent within the same category of spending, the energy department, is symbolic of a lot of waste with solyndra, you don't want the government to have more money than it has and if there are leftover funds,
6:48 am
send it back, reduce the deficit and anything will help with a trillion dollar-plus deficit each year. >> peter: that sounds like a prescription for economic justice. keep bringing these things to our attention. our viewers want to hear more about it. and, i think you have made a good case. good to see you, you be well, okay? >> thank you. >> peter: okay. up next, is a tv show really to blame for the death of a champion body boarder killed by a great white shark? we sit down with the shark expert who will take that apart. next. [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first wee.. i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression
6:49 am
or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms. get medical help rightway if you have symptoms of a heart attack. use caution when driving or operati machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. it helps to have people around you... they say, you're much bigger than this. and you are.

animals, whether it is sharks with chum in the water, or feeding the bears for the alligators, certainly is an attractive act and in some cases will lead to increased numbers of animals at a particular sight. >> alisyn: at one time, the reality tv show, "shark men" was on "national geographic" and we have a statement from them, they said we have not renewed the series, have no plans to and are not filming new episodes and there forethe filming mentioned is not from national geographic channel or future episodes of sharkmen and they say the crew was there but doesn't it raise the question, more and more reality shows are using wild animals and some of them are set in the outback or the wild and i know you are opposed to some of this, because it changes sort of the natural course of things? >> yes. of course, people express

sharks still be in that infesting that area. >> first it would depend on how long and how prolonged and how pronounced the feeding was done, one time throwing over a fish, probably not. but if it was done for a long period and repetitively it have well could have attracted animals, and, of course, sharks oftentimes stay at an area for a period of time, so, three days would not be wholly unreasonable. that said i have to register one complaint in your festing the a that is something you think of with parasites and sharks don't infest an area, they live there. >> clayton: thanks, and i tried to think of another word, inhabiting and showing up there because of the chumming. >> alisyn: and your final point, george, is, you know, when animals begin to associate human beings with food, dangerous
