3:00 am
vice-president cheney and everybody at rivers of recovery for such a great trip. be sure to help out this great organization at rivers of recovery dot org. ♪ >> good morning, everyone, it's saturday, august 18th. i'm alisyn camerota. thanks for joining us this morning. it's been one week since paul ryan took the reigns of the v.p. pick. he hits the campaign trail with his mom. we are live from the villages in florida straight ahead. >> and they are elite fighters who protect this nation and some are speaking out against national security leaks. so why are some on the left calling them gutless? >> plus, a gentle giant sidelined for being too big, too young, so should a 300-pound 12-year-old be allowed to play football with his 135-pound piers? we report, you decide on "fox
3:01 am
& friends." good morning. right now. >> you are watching "fox & friends," that's the great way to begin your day. >> good morning, everybody. thanks for so much for joining us bright and early. nice to see you again, peter johnson jr. >> i'm happy to be here. i'm sorry clayton is not feeling well. be back next week. >> clayton is still sick. >> he will be back. is he a fighter. >> is he tired of laying on the couch already i assure you. >> we do miss him. you miss him. we will collect any gift, candy, cash that you want to send to him. >> i have already. wow! >> you are sending him doughnuts. with the campaign we are 80 days from the election. and the numbers that those on the left may not want to see regarding the economy on friday, unemployment actually grew, increased in the month of july and 44 states, that's
3:02 am
the highest increase we have seen in three years. what's interesting is the battleground states. that's what's important. the battleground states have had unemployment rates lower than the national averages in general. so that was, of course, good for president obama. but, in july, most all of them, except ohio, ticked upward. >> only idaho and rhode island saw decreases. and the fact is that no president has been reelected in american history at an unemployment level at 8.3%. so it's interesting how the polls are see sawing back and forth. sometimes the president is still ahead. sometimes behind. but a significant, significant issue. >> jason utah congressman staying focused to the economy. is he a surrogate for the romney campaign. here is what he said issue for republicans and how democrats are attempting to distract from those. >> the states released their
3:03 am
unemployment rates. 44 of their 50 states had unemployment go up this year. do you think democrats want to talk about that? absolutely not. instead, they want to try to distract and cause a distraction and say look at all of this smoke over there where there is none. >> he did say year. i assume the congressman meant last year. >> of july, yeah. >> right. >> so the white house, it's up to you, do you think it is a distraction to call upon mitt romney to release more than two years of tax returns? >> can i weigh? >> yes. >> this drives me completely nuts. >> why is that? >> because i hear so many democrats out there talking about the american people want to know what's in these tax returns. i talk to a lot of american people. all the time. and i never -- i have never heard one person care what's in mitt romney's tax returns, nor barack obama's tax returns. nor paul ryan's nor joe biden's? who cares? people want a job. they want to save the economy. they want to know we are safe from foreign invaders?
3:04 am
do you know anyone that cares what's in that tax return. >> no. >> that's important to know and that's one thing that the tax returns could reveal. it's interesting, i think, to see where presidents or potential presidents have stashed their money, what they have spent their money on. >> really? i just don't care. >> i'm always interested in how much charity they have given to. it's not my number one issue. >> right. >> of course it's not my number one issue. i am interested on some level. if you think that's not relevant are all the joe biden gaffes relevant? both sides have distractions right now. >> the critical issue is has he filed the forms that he is required to file in order to run for president? and has he made the ultimate financial disclosure as to his assets? and he has done that. >> spoken like a true lawyer. >> and as a true political strategist that's all he has to do under the law. he has also indicated that he spent, in terms of taxes, and charitable contributions
3:05 am
almost 20%. in federal income tax. i think it's a phony issue. i think dave is right. >> t came up again at the white house. you all seem surprised. ed henry our correspondent at the white house this an exchange with the deputy press secretary josh earnest about all of this. >> yesterday, dave said [inaudible] that the tax returns. he was saying that all of these questions about vice president biden with a distraction and that the president doesn't want to deal with these distractions we should focus on the big issues. less than 24 hours the obama campaign puts out a letter about tax returns. it's not a letter about jobs. i understand chicago runs the campaign and they write those letters. however, you guys are on the same page. how you can within 24 hours try to change the subject to tax returns when you keep saying you want to talk about jobs, you want to talk about medicare. >> i think there are two ways that i would put your question.
3:06 am
again, transparency is important. i know that is a view, a principle shared by a large number of people in this room. and the -- the principle of transparency that governor romney has been asked by my colleagues in chicago to live up to is not one above and beyond what his predecessors have done. we are asking him to live up to the standard of previous major party candidates for president, a standard that was established by his father in 2008. >> a standard ignored four years ago by john mccain releasing two years of tax returns. >> it's a movable goal post. >> what i hear him saying when he talks to the press core, i know this is a review of principle that is shared by a large number of people in this room. are they members of the obama for president committee in the so-called mainstream media
3:07 am
that are covering the president? >> transparency. >> all right. you're kind, ali. >> he pays about a 20% rate over the last four years. >> i think that's interesting. >> more on that later. >> another hot topic this election, of course, is medicare. paul ryan will be in florida defending his plan to seniors at one of our favorite places, the villages. >> >> phil keating is there. he joins us live with more on ryan's visit. why the villages are so important. phil keating in a golf cart. hey, brother. good morning. >> this is the best way to commute of all time. unfortunately rain has just picked up here at the villages. but when you see golf carts cruising around this early on a saturday you know there is a bunch of activity here planned. right now the secret service is doing their security sweep. this is an event at the lake sum tore landing at the villages. it's the world's largest
3:08 am
planned retirement community about 61,000 people. that means 40,000 golf carts. most of them 2 to 1 are registered as republicans. the villages typically vote in the 60 percentile for the republic candidate as it did for senator john mccain as now senator marco rubio two years ago. yesterday, up in virginia, congressman ryan had a friendly crowd. a couple of protesters there. but he was again hitting the issues. and the issues that they are targeting specifically here in florida will be one they touched on yesterday. and that is the battle over medicare. >> i heard the president talk about medicare the other day. we want this debate on medicare. [cheers] we want this debate. we need this debate. and we're going to win this debate on medicare. >> now, the obama-biden ticket
3:09 am
yesterday releasing first television ad dealing specifically with this medicare battle. the obama camp saying no, they actually saved medicare and that the $716 billion the romney and ryan team keep talking about was actually not a cut but an investment delayed down the road expanding the life of medicare by 8 years. the he bam that team using aarp which is a very big lobbying group for a lot of people who live here in the villages touting the obama plan over the romney-ryan plan. medicare will be a big topic especially here in florida where last election one out of five voters was a senior citizen. back to you in new york. >> phil, i can't wait for the sun to come up in the villages. you are going to have a great time there. >> it was a big friday night for keating in the villages. >> i predict phil was very pop lamp at the villages. we spent our 15th anniversary there for "fox & friends."
3:10 am
>> right. you were down. >> there paul ryan's mom will be there i don't know if he got that invite. n her late 70s campaigning. >> a lot of people seeing social security benefits in that village any place in america. >> by a mile. 12,000. >> let's get to your headlines this morning because police searched through several movie theaters across country after a bomb threat is called in to the corporate headquarters of the multi-state chain carmike sin mass. voice mail targeting the opening night of the expendables 2. police searched theaters in georgia, minnesota and kentucky among other places luckily finding nothing. the fbi is still investigating. u.s. and nato troops now required to carry loaded weapons at all times. coming in response to a recent rash of attacks on coalition forces by afghan troops who are supposed to be their allies. one of those insider attacks came yesterday when an afghan police officer killed two u.s. special forces members.
3:11 am
reportedly using a gun that they had given him as a gift just moments before. at least 37 otherrist nato troops have been killed in similar attacks so far this year. a real life night in shining armor as comes to rescue of teenage sisters in england. girls with body boarding caught by relationship tide. the other swept out to seed. is he a search and rescue pilot in the reporting live air force. he responded to the distress call. he flew his his helicopter down to the water. pulling the teen out of the water. both are said to be okay. what a prince. >> that's a head lynn. he is a stud. >> let's get to rick reichmuth the chief in with a check of our nasty, rainy, gloomy weather. >> how dare you. >> doesn't sound that good. >> we got a couple weeks. yesterday i just realized it was august 17th. today 18th.
3:12 am
you think t should be august 1st and then you realized it. >> it should be june 1st first. >> well said. across parts of the great lakes it's going to be down across the south there are big storms today and out across the west where it has been so hot for the last couple of weeks cooling down just a little bit. still warm but not as hot. this is kind of this frontal boundary that's draped across areas of the south. one end off to the west we will see severe weather today. mostly hail and some very strong winds and then over across parts of the mid-atlantic and the carolina coast line we will see some storms firing. a lot of these areas seeing showers. we need rain across parts of oklahoma and even into anger. a few showers north, kansas and nebraska. nothing that's going to quench that drought. anything would be good at this point across the areas. here are your temps as you are waking up this morning. much cooler than they have been. a lot better.
3:13 am
warm down to the south. 80's waking up in san antonio. >> thanks. tea party says it's time to occupy the truth. and they are taking to the streets to prove the liberal media is staying silence on violence and even terrorism in the occupy movement. that's next. >> then, in dog found by hikers after her owner abandoned her on a mountaintop. there is now a canine custody battle brewing. we will tell you all about it straight ahead. this is the plan for back to school.

3:17 am
incidents of violence, even potential acts of terrorism when it comes to occupy wall street and they want to expose the coverups today. >> joining us radio talk show host tony cats. he will be speaking and emceeing the event today. good morning, tony. >> good morning, peter. how are you. >> what's this about? why are you doing it? who is going to be there and what effect will it have in changing the dialogue about occupy wall street? >> just having the dialogue right now is going to change the dialogue. this is the story of the occupy movement in cleveland, ohio, that's where i am right now. we're having this rally at willard park at 11:00 a.m. today. there are five members of the occupy movement who were arrested by the fbi on may 1st for attempting to blow up the cuyahoga national park valley bridge and trying to blow up the fed, the federal reserve in cleveland. these are potential acts of terrorism. and this story was absolutely buried. you had one, one article from
3:18 am
the a.p. they buried the lead at the bottom. don't get me wrong. you can find. >> we're looking at the folks who have been arrested now on the screen. we are seeing them now. >> we are seeing their mug shots. these guys are self-proclaimed anarchists. what's your claim that they are part of the occupy movement. >> the evidence of them being part of occupy is that they identify as part of occupy. the real story here is that nobody is willing to open up this conversation and say this is what these people are about. look how quickly they will go to jump at the tea party like aurora, colorado and try to blame them for the shooting there. this is something that happened. these member were arrested. they tried to blow up a four lane bridge over the park area. and the federal reserve building. we need to have this conversation because the press is so complicit in trying to protect others. for example, president obama who has reveered the occupy
3:19 am
movement. nancy pelosi revering the occupy movement. >> question we need to ask. we are talking about people potentially blowing up a bridge. the federal reserve bank and a four lane highway. why is the mainstream media ignoring this incredibly, i think an important and news worthy story. >> that's the question we're asking. here in cleveland today. that's why michelle malkin is out here. that's why dana loesch is out here. that's why the gateway pundit jim hough. director of a fantastic moving andrew breitbart. they took the idea from andrew breitbart. you must have a media that does its job north to maintain a democracy and keep the public going. if we are going to be honest people we need to have honest conversations. the press for trying to protect their political allies are refusing to have this honest conversation. there is a truth about the occupy movement. we plan on discussing not only that but telling the media
3:20 am
that they can no longer get away with trying to tell us what the stories are. new media decides what the stories are we can report these stories. and we're thrilled to have people out there who are finally getting that news out. >> well, tony katz, we will will look forward to seeing how much press cmp coverage you get today of your press coverage in cleveland. >> come and join us. >> you got it take care. >> they found on the front lines of the battlefield to defend our freedoms. how come the votes of our servicemen and women are not all being counted? up next, we're going to hear how one group is trying to change that this election. >> plus, some are calling this the sexist mugshot ever. do you agree with that? >> we will tell you what this playboy bunny was busted for.
3:21 am

3:24 am
>> they fight to protect our freedoms, yet in 2010, less than 5% military voters cast absentee ballot that actually counted. 310,000 ballots were requested and a 95,000 were returned. a group making to make sure military votes count this time around. eric, good morning to you. good morning to you. >> what happened to the 2,000 ballots submitted and returned and not submitted. >> this is what happens election after election. because service members to our country. challenging to update registration application or form to update their address
3:25 am
and to make sure it's submitted on time so that they can get their absentee ballots. so, tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of these ballots don't make it to the intended delivery target somewhere over in the desert. a lot of these service members unfortunately are disenfranchised by the nature of their service. >> when they find out they weren't necessarily returned. you were saying weren't filled out and were intended to be submitted, somewhere along the lines there was a tickerrer with them. is that what you are suggesting that they were filled out and they were turned in. >> no. i think a lot of them get lost. i'm not suggesting that i think a lot of them do not make it to the service member to actually be able to vote and have it returned in time. a lot of it has to do with the aspect of filling out the registration form and doing so in advance of the election to make sure that they have an opportunity to participate. >> so, most importantly, you brought up the military members feel disenfranchised.
3:26 am
do you feel that less are even asking for the ballots because they feel that their vote does no longer count? >> >> i think, you know, one of the things we see time and time again is that level of frustration from our service members that they ask for the ballot. they don't get it in time. if you visit our facebook page, it's filled with stories of service members that ask for absentee ballot and they talk about getting it a day or two days or 10 days after the election and their voices are silenced. >> those who defend our freedom their votes ought to be the most important and first to be counted. you want to change all of this through your project we mentioned military voter protection project. tell us about what you hope to it do and how you want to do it. >> sure. the big thing that the military voter protection project tries to do is try to work with the community, the states, the local bases and work with our other nonprofit partners to make sure that our service members have an opportunity to register and request an absentee ballot and have their voices heard on
3:27 am
election day. so we have been doing events throughout the country with our state partners, all-star states that we call them to make sure that service members have an opportunity to participate. >> and you are doing this through web site heros vote.org. there ought to be bipartisan support for our military members votes counting. you mentioned states. there are 19 all-star states eric thanks for being here. we will link your web site to ours. >> thank you. >> navy seals gutless? that's what one left wing group is calling this organization of special forces who are speaking out against the national security leaks going on in this country. and the gentle giant sidelined for being too big, too young. should a 300-pound, 12-year-old be allowed to play football with his 100-pound

>> welcome back, everybody. thanks for joining us this morning. you may have heard about these -- there is a battle royal brewing. it is between this leftist group called media matters for america and special forces soldiers including navy seals. what happened is that there is a group of special forces who have spoken out against the obama administration leaks. the leaks, the national security leaks that have been prominent in the "new york times," the associated press, all the information that has come out about some of these special forces and navy seals operations. so they have come out, the soldiers, and said that they think this puts their lives in danger and entire national security in danger. >> this tweet might fire you up. if you haven't seen it read it from eric quote former navy seals don't have guts to admit they are running a g.o.p. anti-obama campaign. needless to say that was fired up the members of the military and their families, the ones
3:33 am
who helped put together this video. i should mention the video on youtube dishonorable disclosures has been 1.9 presidential already on. it the old thumbs up on youtube. >> mr. boelher. >> it is a propagandist masquerading as a journalist. one of his main missions has been to destroy fox news in the past. and now he seems to have been setting his sight on some very very patriotic americans. >> you better be pretty tough to question the guts of a navy seal. >> in temperate language pretty sick and deminted. how did retired seal scott taylor respond on the bill o'reilly show? >> it's interesting, of course, that whoever opposes us is trying to paint as though it's just a g.o.p. arm or something like that. when, in fact, we have folks from both sides of the aisle, in fact, most of them are
3:34 am
probably a political. but we feel very strongly to serious group, a broad coalition of seals, special forces. delta force, marines, ex-cia. we are highly moat advised. democrats are outraged and republicans are outraged and americans should be outraged. it's an american issue and unfortunately this is the only time that politicians seem to pay attention during the political season when their political lives are potentially at stake. >> scott taylor himself is a republic. there is no secret about t. he doesn't hide that he is a republic. he has run for u.s. congress as a g.o.p. candidates. so, perhaps they shouldn't call themselves a nonpartisan group. perhaps they should call themselves a bipartisan group. you have heard democrats speak out about against the speaks. this is a bipartisan not just taylor reuters has a report linking several members of this group to national and state republic outfits. so it's not, to your point
3:35 am
necessarily bipartisan. >> he says it is nonpartisan. >> patriotism is a manner of americanism, as a manner of manhood i'm sure he will apologize and retract what he said. >> don't hold your breath. >> you said it with a straight face. >> i did. it should happen. will it happen? let's see. >> meanwhile, let's go to headlines right now. lots to tell you about. the first game preseason cardinals turns violent aftershocks ring out. a fight between two men led to the shooting. one man critically wounded and taken to the hospital. the alleged shooter has been arrested. no word on what the fight was about. or if they even knew each other. a colorado man now charged with animal cruelty after abandoning his dog at a

3:39 am
>> i'm going to put out on twitter a video clip of one of the interviews of him. you have seen it. >> no. >> like little montage clips. when you see that you will understand how that might be one of the more coherent words that he says. when he is interviewed. sorry, ryan. >> hey, he had an acting cameo on 90210. >> he has got to be smart. >> i take t all back, man. i take it all back. all right, guys. let's talk about the weather. got a little bit of rain going on right here. over the last 24 hours across parts of the southwest. big rain showers across all the four corners and in to california. a few thunderstorms into southern california. take a look at the video. coming out of the victorville area. this is up in the san berne dibiasio know mountains. major rain there causing some big-time mud slides. people had to be rescued. fortunately, nobody was significantly injured. there wasn't any big damage to

3:42 am
135-pounds you have to play in interior line, play between guard to guard. i had a similar rule when i played football over a certain weight limit only a guard or center or guard on the other side. >> when your boy grows up, do you want him to be playing 120 pounds against a 300-pound boy. >> i hope he doesn't get crushed by the kid but i feel bad for this kid. unless he continues to grow. >> he seems like a lovely young man. got a nice mother. >> is he not obese. >> he is big. >> he is big. >> rules for peewee football to protect people to make sure they don't get hurt. >> we have lawyer on the set. he is going to be a problem for you all morning long. >> he can play jv, varsity high school football. >> maybe. if he continues. >> go to canadian football now. >> he will be a star in cleaning won't be a problem. >> let's hear from folks on this story. >> our rules are clear. i mean, black and white if you are in the seventh or eighth grade. and you weigh over 135, you

>> well, president obama may have rocked the youth vote four years ago but things have changed. >> now, there is a lot of buzz about the youthful paul ryan. will he be the one to help bring in the youth vote for mitt romney this november? >> this economy is really bad for young americans. half of all college graduates are either working in jobs that they didn't train for or not working at all. half. are they are swallowing in debt with ever higher tuition.
3:48 am
president obama and others like him in washington are more worried about their next election than they are worried about the next generation. [ applause ] not us. we will lead. >> enthusiasm there in the crowd. ron myer joins us now from the young americas foundation. ron, good to see you. 2008, obama won the youth vote 66% to 32%. it was arguably the turning point in the election. has it changed at all with the selection of paul ryan as v.p.? >> i think it's certainly refreshing to see him on college campuses. that speech you saw he was on a college campus. president obama was on college campus one out of every 11 days. good to see a conservative willing to do the same thing. he hit the three biggest issues that we see for young people, youth unemployment, average graduating college debt and national debt. threw something together youth misery index threw on fox a
3:49 am
few seconds ago. it's exciting to see somebody talk about young people stuck in their parents'' basements. not saying we are going to give you freebies president obama gets to use a teleprompter he said this competing against people in beijing and bang galore. not hanging out, not playing video games. they are not watching real housewives. i'm just saying. it's a two way street. president obama is telling young people we have to earn success. which is true we do need to earn success. coming from him that's condescending. under him the worst summer jobs history way back to 1948. young people are stuck at home, unable to find work and he is condescending. it's great we have someone to advocate for empowering young people on college campuses. >> you say certain policies of the president that you call youth gimmicks. in terms of the 26 healthcare
3:50 am
and other things. what's a youth gimmick that the president has been pushing? >> well, president obama goes to college pus campuses, he has two big talking points. one, you get to stay on your parent's plan until you are 26. the other one is that we're going to do -- we're going to help you with student loan interest payments. both are bologna, really. with the whole you can stay on your parent's plan until you are 26. insurance companies already planning on doing that almost all employers have to employ you. is he planning on unemployment. he is planning on eternal childhood. with the student loans the government is the reason we have high tuition prices in the first place. the tuition not the interest payments are the problem. last year alone public tuition rates went up 10% because government unlimited aid to school with zero strings attached. >> good to see you. see you soon. let us know what's happening. >> we need polls on, this people. at 11 years old she is

3:55 am
is an -- lemonade stands are an american tradition, childhood tradition in this country. but most importantly, voluntarily exchanging goods and services are natural human interactions and one should not have to ask permission to do so. >> susie, you have a lemonade stand. have you set one up from time to time. what did you hear about what was happening to other kids' lemonade stands when local officials got involved? >> well, i heard about shut down. i didn't think it was right. i set up a lemonade stand on freedom day. >> shutting down lemonade stands across the country. why is it resonating, in particular, right now that this is just an overreach for our government? >> well, honestly i think it has to do with overregulation,
3:56 am
government intrusion in our every day lives. but mostly it's happening all across the country. i think people are starting to realize. this is effecting our children one of things i love about your protest and we will leave it here. you are have mad about this you are having a picnic today. that's how you are going to protest. you are all going down to dc and having lemonade and a picnic. >> at noon. >> we're looking forward of hearing what comes from your national lemonade freedom day. as you can see i'm dressed in solidarity with some lemonade. susan and margie thanks so much for coming in. >> thank you for having us. >> we're going to. >> take a break. that's what we're going to do. more "fox & friends," two minutes. hi, i'm phil mickelson.

i've been fortunate to win on golf's biggest stages. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit, even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system,
3:58 am
it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, whilen enbrel, you experice persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biolog medicine prescribed by rheumatologists.

only accidents slow speed. pretty safe. medicare is the issue on the campaign trail today. not only here in senior rich florida but also up in new hampshire where president obama will be later today. at about 10:00 a.m. congressman paul ryan comes right over there. we could see the stage set up there. you could see the big banner says protect and strengthen medicare. congressman ryan will be offering his blueprint ideas as to how you save medicare down the road as you have been paying attention over the past week. that's what the two campaigns are battling each other over. who is actually stronger to preserve and strengthen medicare for the nation's seniors? yesterday, congressman ryan was in virginia. big crowds there up in fairfax county. and he welcomed the medicare debate. here, take a listen. >> heard the president talk about medicare the other day. we want this debate on medicare. >> yeah. [cheers]
4:03 am
we want this debate. we need this debate, and we're going to win this debate on medicare. >> now, the obama campaign is pushing back very hard on this medicare issue. president obama launching this campaign ad yesterday. and he will be campaigning today in new hampshire again talking about medicare. and the obama-biden ticket. they accuse the romney-ryan ticket of having a plan that turns medicare entitlement program very popular for years into a voucher program down the road that could cause seniors about $6,000 a year. another big name on hand down here at the villages. not congressman ryan but his 78-year-old mother betty douglas. she will be on hand. her national debut now that her son is republic vice presidential candidate. she will be here as well. she is also a snow bird. spends the summers up in wisconsin. down in florida fort lauderdale by the sea down in

4:05 am
54 and younger. helps to have mom alongside too when you are delivering that message. won't cut to any seniors existing benefits. >> of course medicare is the big topic this week ever since paul ryan was named to be part of the ticket. but, of course, jobs coupled with that jobs is the prevailing issue in this country. something interesting happened. new numbers came out and showed that in 44 states in july the unemployment rate went up. after a year of declining, the rate in separate states, including battleground states, peter, has gone up now. >> and at the same time, the white house has been trying to pump up this issue with regard to mitt romney's tax returns. again, yesterday, some republic leaders, including congressman jason chafett the democrats are trying to distract. >> states released unemployment rate. 44 of 50 states had
4:06 am
unemployment go up this year. do you think democrats want to talk about that? absolutely not. they want to distract and cause a distraction and say look at all of this smoke over there where there is none. >> if we can see that map one more time. it is important to mention what ali said, colorado, nevada, florida. you have got virginia, north carolina, very key states. that's the highest increase 44 states in three years. >> they say only ohio held steady with its 7.2% there. so that will obviously come into play in november. all right. meanwhile, let's get to your headlines and tell you what's happening because the gay rights activist charged with opening fire at the family research council. the head of the traditional values coalition the fbi told her floyd core kin had a note containing her group's in his pocket when he was arrested at the frc. the group's offices located minutes away from each other. he may have planned on a massacre. fortunately he was only able to shoot one frc security

>> it might be impossible to name criticism of paul ryan's budget plan that you haven't heard already. we have been told it dismantles medicare and takes guaranteed benefits away from seniors. do these claims from the left actually hold any weight? do they hold in the light of day? fox news contributor amilya antonetti, is here to help us separate fact from fiction. >> hi, good morning. >> let's go to the first myth, number one, tax cuts only apply to the wealthest americans. that's what the folks on the left are saying. let's see what the president said. >> you know, this weekend my opponent. mr. romney chose as his running mate the ideological leader as the republicans in congress. the centerpiece of mr. romney's entire economic
4:17 am
plan is a new 5 trillion-dollar tax cut, a lot of t going to the very wealthiest americans. >> here's the question amelia, fact or myth. >> it's an absolute myth. this drives me crazy. first of all we are taking six very complicated individual tax cuss and reducing them down to two. that helps everybody right now because now if you can understand the question, you can give them a better answer. so that right across the board helps everything. this is how i explain this to my children. if you have a dollar and i pay 80 cents of the taxes and you pay 20% of it, we are both going to get 10% back. that means i get 8 cents and you get 2 cents. that doesn't mean i got 8 cents i got more. i got the right ratio for what i contributed. the wealthiest people contribute the most. you can't turnround and say we both -- i paid 80% and i get 2 cents and you get 2 cents. that doesn't mathematically make sense. when they spin these numbers they are not taking a look at, again, the 2% pay the most
4:18 am
amount of taxes so of course he they are going to get more back because it's proportionally so. what do they do with their money? they put it back into the economy they stimulate it more. when you think about it logically what he says makes no sense. myth. myth. >> perhaps myth number two seniors will completely lose medicare coverage. let's hear it from the president's man on cbs this morning, david axelrod on that statement. >> the fact is that we took that money and we extended the length of medicare by 8 years. if that was part of the affordable care act. we expanded prescription coverage. make no mistake about it, these republicans don't believe in medicare. they want to turn it into a voucher program and slowly all the burden is going to shift to seniors themselves and that is not an answer to entitlement reform. >> so when the president's spin meister david axelrod
4:19 am
says that is he being a truth teller or a myth maker. >> is he a myth maker. it's not true. he stands on his ground. first of all it's not that they want to not have dicare. we want to turn it into a business. what does a business do? accountability? better service, better margin. some way to make this not continue to spin out of control. talking about raising the limit on the age. well, of course, we are living longer. talking about a system that's been around for 50 years it's broken. >> romney says you can keep medicare if you want it. you will have the choice of private plans as well. >> that's the number one thing in here. t gives choice back to people. isn't that what we want? i don't want you making decisions for he me. i want to make my own decisions. my father wants to make his own decisions of what he does with his healthcare. why are you going to tell him what to do. my father doesn't like to be told what to do. he says this is how much money you get. can you choose what works best for you. customize. it's a business. >> amilya antonetti, i can't imagine anyone, whether it's barack obama or anyone out here making decisions for you.
4:20 am
>> nobody wants them to do that that's the american way. that's why we are here. we don't want people making decisions for us. give us choice. you can have vanilla or chocolate or strawberry one, which one do you want? better. >> people got to read and watch. >> just pay attention to the words, right? any time somebody is emphatic about something you don't know the whole thing, pick up the thing read it for yourself and make a decision. choice, make your own choice. >> we choose you. amilya antonetti, good to see you. see you again soon. >> absolutely. >> fake drugs are a growing problem in the u.s. what can you do to make sure you are getting the real medicine? dr. mark seagull of the a team here next with the answers. then, a $75,000 maserati swiped under the salesman's nose. literally gone in 60 seconds. we have this every week. what's happening to sports cars in america? we'll be back.

4:26 am
counterfeit and alert our viewers. the first types are antibiotics and an it at this virals like am tamiflu. >> zittrromax. is the spelling correct, the label. is t the pill you can recognize? you can actually ask your doctor if this the is right pill. tamiflu when we have flu ends it goes like wildfire. internet is where it is sold. >> so many people take lipitor. how you can protect yourself against the counterfeits here? >> well, again, you have to ask your physician for the prescription. go to a pharmacy that he or she recommends. you can't go to some pharmacy that isn't certified. lipitor huge problem with that right now because it's going generic. the more the drug goes generic the morva rights around the more likely counterfeit. a huge growing problem in the
4:27 am
united states. >> only used authorized pharmacies. next, cancer drugs. that is tragic if these are being counterfeit because they obviously won't work as well. all of the drugs this is true of. tell us what people need to know about cancer drugs. >> people may have heard about this. but this year was a terrible year for. this avastin, a counterfeit coming out of turkey mislabeled, misspelled. in french instead of in english. there is ways to tell. this it's enormous problem. the way to avoid it with cancer drugs is go to your hospital with chemotherapy. get it from a clinic that. don't try to get it elsewhere it is scarce and the problems occur because of the scarce city of these drugs. the solution isn't to go outside the professional. >> the next one i take all the time allergy pills i notice they are being kept behind the counter now at the drugstores. how you can make sure you are not getting counterfeit for painkillers and allergy pills. >> painkillers that's a be

4:39 am
you. what we will will do is we're going to go between tile and paint and tile and paint. so really you just figure out about what ghexes you like. this is b. a 13-inch span because we wanted to add a little bit of trim tile and then we wanted 8 inches of paint. you figure it out based on what you want. >> this adhesive is all part of one big strip. >> once we drew the lines out we use the simple mat. this stuff is so cool. you don't have to use any adheatsive. >> this is the worst part. that's probably the most intimidating part for people. >> this simple mat you peel and stick. peel the back off and stick it to the wall and once t is stick on to the wall. you feel the front part off, if i can get to it here. now it has adhesive built on. >> all we're doing. >> stick it on there. connect to the overlap. >> if you get it wrong the cool thing is, until you really set it in there you
4:40 am
have got a chance to redo t. once you do and push it hard it's going to set. you don't have to wait for the adhesive to dry. can you go ahead and grout. so your next step is going to be to grout. this is what is going to fill in the gaps, right? you want to grout float. >> okay. put some grout on there. this is sort of what fills in i was curious. you don't have to get in there with a tiny little. >> that will clean right off. >> push this in go over go at an angle. see how t pushes it into the gaps. >> how easy will that clean off. >> once you are done done with that use a punk and start getting off the excess. okay? you don't want to push too hard. >> what's going to happen though it will leave a haze. you let this dry after you get signed of get most of this off
4:41 am
of there. it leaves a little bit of a haze. use some cheese lot, just rub it down. >> you want to make sure you to get that off within a couple of hours. >> you wait until it sets up probably two to four hours and then you can start getting that last little bit of haze. like a heavy dust. can you add any trim tiles and then you can paint in between. so we have obviously taped that off with our blue tape. so that once do you that you pick your paint and move over here to where he we finished. and you see how cool this looks. again, this allows you to do your own design. something you can easily get done in a weekend. but look how great that looks. can you see how we designed this so that it hits just on top of the vanity here. >> can this ability as a back splash. >> right. >> a lot of homes don't come with the back splash. >> if you wanted to use this technically as a back splash. actually cut that tile around the back of your vanity. >> place it straight down. >> right down against there, when you grout, you grout right up against there and you
4:42 am

good morning to you, phil. >> good morning. by the way. i tried partying all night with all of these senior citizens 61,000 strong in the villages but they all go to bed 8:00. probably because they wanted to get up in the front row for today's big congressman ryan rally for victory. it starts at about 2 hours. as you can see from our other camera here, big crowd already on hand. a lot of fox news fans out there as i can hear. and congressman ryan will be tailor his platform today to talking about medicare to protect and strengthen medicare according to the big banner behind the stage. and yesterday in virginia. he said as far as fighting over who is going to be better for medicare in the future, congressman ryan says they are ready for the battle there is only one person who treated medicare like a piggy bank and that's president obama. he took $716 billion from that program to create obama care
5:03 am
and his campaign calls this an achievement. do you think medicaid to pay for obama care is an achievement? why don't we get rid of obama care all together, huh? that would be an achievement. >> and the obama campaign, of course, rejecting that argument saying that was not the case whatsoever. in fact, the obama campaign releasing a television commercial yesterday, a campaign ad targeting the ryan budget plan for medicare, which would turn it into somewhat of a privatized voucher program years and years down the road. and the president using aarp's only aanalysis to suggest that the obama care plan, as far as medicare is less costly to seniors as would be the romney-ryan plan. but also on hand here at 10:00 a.m. when congressman ryan walks out on the stage, his

5:05 am
listen to this. they are reaching a record high this year and, in fact, this week and this month. things have really gone up since july. the national average right now as of yesterday was $3.72 a gallon. >> that's up almost 30 cents from last month. now word that president obama is tapping strategic oil reserves. the reason they do that they don't want iran to suddenly make a ton of money because of the sanctions that have been applied to iran that are many say beginning to take hold and starting to work. many on the other side say pretty convenient that you would tap the oil reserves 80 days out from an election. and they say politics is at play here, peter. >> what does former shell president have to say about tapping the reserve in terms of supply and demand? if they tap the reserve three, four, maybe five days of
5:06 am
relief and then we go back to where we were before. people are looking to solutions, tapping the strategic oil reserve is not a solution relationship between supply and demand. think i we set up in the 70s. massive interruption and embargo of oil to the united states. it's been used very sparingly historically, really only for disruptions. >> actual oil supply. real emergencies so the issue is is it being used to bring gas prices down at the pump for political purposes or is there an actual disruption of oil supplies america which you really haven't seen yet. >> they will take a closer look at this after labor day. prices begin to come down after labor day and things begin to fall in line. if they don't, then you will re-examine it. you know in our neck of the woods connecticut 4 bucks a gallon. $95 to fill up my car last week and doesn't feel like any

5:10 am
i didn't think that was bad why wasn't the 12-year-old wearing a helmet? if you are that big you don't need to wear a helmet? >> he should be wearing a helmet. >> there are weight restrictions for peewee football associations and he is not allowed by the weight restriction to play so he was ousted. is that the way the cookie crumbles or should some of these be changed. >> what i understand similar to what i played if you weigh more than 135 pounds you had to be interior linemen, a center or guard. from what i read of them, they should allow him to play but force him to be interior lineman. maybe he is too big to keep anyone on that field safe. here is what they say in regard to the safety of the other players. >> our rules are clear. i mean, is it says in black and white. if you are in the seventh or eighth grade. 11 or 12 years old and weigh over 135 you cannot participate in our league. >> i mean i understand it's
5:11 am
about safety, guys. that's not how sports works. this is a big kid so we are supposed to punish him? that's what he enjoys and he is good at it. >> this is the rule in that league. unfortunately he weighs too much. he is going to be a great high school ball player there has to be rules. >> there also has to be somewhere where he is allowed to play. >> if you weigh too much. >> isn't it dangerous for him dave to play against the other kids. >> it's football. it's not tennis. it's a full contact sport where you might get hurt. >> too many kids have suffered concussions as a result of that thinking over the years. >> that's completely different than having somebody too big. >> 290 pounds crushing 110-pound boy. >> i don't want my kid get crushed either. what should we do with this kid he has a passion and good at it. >> i would make him a coach. i would make him the assistant coach. keep him involved. make him part of the process. thank him for his service. keep him going.

find out other ways. let him work out with the team. do different things. >> you had a lot of thoughts on this. i think an age limit should be in place not a size limit. if he can pass the physical rirmingts, he should be able to play. >> here is an email from jack they made this rule for a reason to protect kids. they investor right to enforce the rule. >> i know older league you don't want him playing with more experienced players. >> absolute certainty absurd at this to pit 300-pound to compete against 135-pound. would this not increase likelihood of injury? >> don't want injury. it's bad for this boy but bad for everybody else. >> at what point is he allowed to play? >> weight limits in wrestling and weight limits in football. >> at what point? so you are saying he could never play football if he is that much bigger than the kid in high school. >> in high school. absolutely not in high school though.

out the clock or at least to delay the game? >> well, that is certainly the case. as you know, this case has been delayed a couple times at defense request. which is normal. there is great deal of work. lt. colonel poppy, the defense attorney and his assistant attorneys have to do and a judge has given him that time to be ready. but the judge said this month, august, was going to be the month for trial. so i don't think lt. colonel poppy and his defense attorneys have anything to it do with this. this may be major hasan deciding he wants his attorneys to have more time so he is digging in his heels about the beard. >> thanks for expertise. keep an eye on this for us. let us know what suspecting ha. at love americans want to know about this. good to see you. >> good to see you, peter. >> mom entrepreneur is singing the blues over red tape regulations, literally. >> the pregnant go ladies don't have a lot of patients. they are waiting on me and all this red red tape. the mommas with the bump are getting belly aches.
5:20 am
>> jeah we meet her next. >> and, they risk their lives as u.s. marines now they are entering another battlefield. competing with missions hollywood celebrity an operative from the new reality show stars earn stripes next. when i found out my irregular heartbeat put me at 5 timesgreater risk o, my first thoughts were about my wife, and my family. i have the most commonype of atrial fibrillation, or afib. it's not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin, but my doctor put me on pradaxa instead
5:21 am
to reduce my risk of stroke. in a clinical trial, praxa® (dabigatran etexilate mesylate) reduced stroke risk 35% better than warfarin. and unlike warfarin, with pradaxa, there's no need for regular blood tests. that's really important to me. pradaxa can cause serious, sometimes fatal, bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have a bleeding condition like stomach ulcers, or take aspirin, nsaids, or blood thinners, or if you have kidney problems, especially if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all medicines you take, any planned medical or dental procedures, and don't stop taking pradaxa without your doctor's approval, as stopping may increase your stroke risk. other side effects inclu indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. pradaxa is progress. having afib not caused by a heart valve problem increases yourrisk of stroke. ask your doctor if you can reduce your risk with pradaxa.

5:23 am
>> government red tape stalled one woman's efforts to sell her invention. now this mom entrepreneur is fighting back and launching a campaign against pillow tag laws.
5:24 am
>> the regulators say that i can't sell without a tag. it's going to cost thousands and it's really a drag. i'm asking for help with my situation, the prego ladies don't have a lot of patience. waiting on me and on this red red tape. the mommas with the bump are getting belly aches. i need some raise some capital here is a little song called do not remove under penalty of law. >> you are so jigy. joining us is the creator of the belly pillow. great rap. great so-to-you have here. why did you invent this crazy little pillow here. >> when i was pregnant with my daughter i was extremely uncomfort being like most women are. i would have a pillow and suv under my pillow. took it and cut t in half and put a piece of fabric in the middle. when you roll over there is a pillow waiting on the other side. >> call the belly rest. i'm going to sell it online. got a web side. what was the problem? >> red tape. actually.
5:25 am
when i found out i had to pillow tag and 15 states require pillow tags and i can't sell in a state that requires a pillow tag without paying their state the fees. >> the pillow tag fee is no small chump change. you found there are lots of little fees that add up here 720 bucks to a lot of money. >> per year. >> per year. >> so, when you were going to pay all the fees, what sort of money were you looking at? >> i needed $3,660 to start. and then. >> just for the fees. >> just for the fees and then another $1,000 to pay a company to manage the fees because they all renew at different times of the year and if you miss a fee they pull your product. >> you must have been very surprised. here you are, you just wanted to invent a little pillow for pregnant moms. and had you had any idea of the impediments? >> none. none. >> and so what did you -- how did you decide to tackle this? >> well, i found out about the fees then i got really mad.
5:26 am
cried a little bit. and then i wrote a rap. that's what you do when you are angry. this is america, you rap about it? >> right. >> now what happens. >> $6,060. i have the money to start but now i'm essentially back at zero because all that money goes toward the fees and a little bit of production so now i'm trying to presell another 300 pillows to have the money to actually go into production. >> so what's your message for people, who like you, who think that they have a good idea and want to invent something? >> go for it anyway. i'm glad i found out late in the game because i would have quit. i probably would. but i had enough pregnant women who said oh my gosh u you have to do. this you cannot say no it angry pregnant women you can't. >> people who want to buy your pillow go to belly rest.com. just out of curiosity what could happen if i cut off the tag.
5:27 am
>> don't do that you would be arrested. >> it's illegal to cut off this pillow tag. >> you are -- when you are consumer you can cut the tag. >> if i bought this i can cut the tag. but i cannot cut a tag off a pillow. >> right. >> thank you for saving me from the clink. >> yeah. >> thanks so much. great invehicles. great story. great to have you. >> thanks, alisyn. >> coming up, this dog found by hikers after her opener abandoned her on a mountaintop. there is now a canine custody battle brewing. we will tell you about that straight ahead. plus, biden's gaffetastic. is this a distraction from the real issues that all the candidates say they are trying to tackle? we ask governor mike huckabee next. come on in, guys. you tell us what you want to pay, and we give you a range of coverages to choose from.

was not. was any -- were think of knows gaffes intentional? we will will ask the governor. >> i think that that actually flies in the face of desks it of gaffe. >> was it a gaffe? >> strategy. >> i look forward to hearing from the governor. meanwhile, let's get to your headlines. the first gym of the prea season between the cardinals and raiders turns violent in arizona after shots ring out at the university of phoenix parking lot. a fight between two men led to the shooting. one man critically wounded and taken to the hospital. the alleged is ther has been arrested. no word on what the fight was about or if they even knew each other. and a colorado man now charged with animal cruelty after abandoning his dog on a mountaintop. anthony says he was hiking with his german shepherd, missy, when a bad storm rolled in. at that point he claims missy's feet were so injured he had no other choice but it leave her there or else risk his own chances of making it down the mountain alive. more than a week later, two hikers found missy nearly
5:33 am
starved to death. they then nursed her wounds and spent 9 hours carrying her to safety. now he wants missy back but the hikers say she would be better off with them. and a terrifying situation for two arizona parents. their 5-year-old son sneaks on to a school bus and is dropped off in the wrong neighborhood. his parents panicked when they came to pick him up at the school and couldn't find him. the school called police and sent a description of the boy to bus drivers. subsite substitute driver did not notice and dropped the boy off in a neighborhood a mile from his home. he wandered by a nearby highway until a good samaritan stopped to help. >> he saved his life by, yeah, by stopping. who knows what could have happened. >> worse nightmare. we were really scared. we didn't know where he was. >> scary stuff. the school put new bus policies in place to make sure this does not happen again. dave, tell us about sports,

5:35 am
rain across parts of the coastal areas of the northeast to start your day. take a look at the tropics though right now. that is tropical storm helene right off the coast of mexico it's going to continue to pull off towards the north over the next couple of days. not a big threat to anybody at all. winds are kind of calm it will bring moisture across parts of south texas over the next 3 to 4 days as it lingers right in that area. here is your forecast for the day across the east. there is a cold front moving through and kind of a cold front behind it. it is going to be much cooler, cooler temps across the interior sections and cooler temps by this evening across total areas as well. down to the southeast, that's where most of the rain and thunderstorms are going to be. of course in, some of them could be heavy. we could see a little bit of flooding at times across parts of louisiana and beneficial raincross areas of texas and oklahoma. into the northern plains, no significant rain showers but temps certainly have cooled down after all those high temperatures that we dealt with for june and july. things have really calmed town and it feels much more almost
5:36 am
like fall especially aacross parts of the great lakes. the heat continues not as bad as it had been. very warm still though. 97 in spokane and continue to see some of those showers and thunderstorms that monsoonal activity for the afternoon today. all right, guys. send it back to you inside. >> okay, rick. the weather is a bunch of jeah. i'm trying to crews it in -- that doesn't. >> that's a good effort. keep trying. give you the prons. >> jeah it's raining. >> let's bring this it now governor huckabee talking about all the latest politics from the week that was. it's been an interesting week, governor. good to see you as far as the romney ryan ticket. they have split up. they will get back together this week and campaign together. >> almost like a major. [ laughter ] >> they split up and get back together. has there been a post ryan buzz? has it been so far a success? >> it's been incredible success. i think that a lot of people within the republic ranks are very very happy about the selection. for a number of reasons. number one, mitt romney was
5:37 am
going to be running against the paul ryan budget whether ryan was on the ticket or not. what better way to diffuse it and refute it than having ryan himself out there who was incredibly intelligent articulate spokesman. >> can i just interrupt you. >> you just did. >> you said for republicans, what about for independents? does it work for them? >> of course it does. independents care about where the country is going long term, the deficit, debt, job situation. ryan is a person who can explain how those two fit together. and i just think it was a brilliant and some call it a bold pick and i guess in many ways it is. he also satisfies the people who have very very attuned to the pro-life issue. paul ryan has an absolute sterling record on issues of that nature as well. >> now, while most people, even people on the left believe that congressman ryan has acquitted himself really strongly, especially in explaining budgets and medicare, on the democratic side of the coin, vice president biden appears to be resorting to racial language,
5:38 am
to help gin up what he appears to think is the democratic vote. what is the contrast, in your mind and how does it help or hurt either side? >> well, what you saw was a very intellectual approach by paul ryan. a thoughtful and really in-depth policy. with ryan -- with biden, is he just throwing red meat hoping that something will cause people to go out there and bite. this bit him back. it was a huge, huge blow back for joe biden. when you have people like former virginia governor doug wilder, the first african-american governor of that state coming out and talking about his outrage, you have davis who nominated barack obama four years ago speaking of his outrage for this. because it was pandering. it was clear pandering, it was race baiting and santita jackson, another very credible, i think, spokesperson for the african-american community. highly offended by the whole language and the attempt to be, you know, one of the guys.
5:39 am
just didn't work. >> y'all going to be back in chains. >> yeah. >> speaking to the african-american folks in the audience? >> yeah. >> so you, -- so now what should president obama do about this. been reported that joe biden is on a staycation. he. >> he is in the time out chair. he is underground bunker formerly occupied by dick cheney during the 9/11 aftermath. >> if you were president, what should he do about joe biden. >> put him on a very tight leash and script him and make him read teleprompters. >> i love joe biden for many reasons. he is authentic guy. good decent human being. nothing personal. joe likes to go out there and mix it up. is he great at glad handing and walking into a room. he can make the whole room love him. is he terrific at that. he is not at the podium somebody that you can just say yeah, it will be great. it's like oh my gosh, there he goes, the mike is on. i think what we need to do if i were running his show, i would put him out there glad
5:40 am
handing and doing a lot of one on one events. i wouldn't give him without a teleprompter. >> i think he should come here to the curvey couch. >> you think? >> he has been on our show and i remember him in the green room. >> he is delightfully wonderful human being. >> your point of maybe smaller crowds? >> governor huckabee going to be sticking around with us. please, governor? >> okay. >> gay rights activist charged with shooting a security guard at a conservative group's dc office. why is the mainstream media, governor, barely talking about t. >> and they risk their lives as u.s. marines. now they are entering another battlefield competing in missions with hollywood celebs. a look at the new reality show stars earn stripes next.

>> welcome back. the man suspected of shooting a security guard at a conservative group office was a local gay rights activists. now reports saying he may have been targeting another christian group as well. there has been very little coverage by the mainstream media. where is the outrage. we are back with governor huckabee. governor, it's interesting to ask yourself if this situation were reversed, right, and if this were a planned parenthood type group. >> exactly and a conservative who did the shooting. how would it then have been covered? >> we know how it's been covered in the past when you have had situations like that. when a person who said he was pro-life went in and shot a person in an abortion clinic, it was big news. it should have been big news. it was horrible. it was roundly condemned by everyone in the pro-life movement because that's the an tit cyst of pro-life. in the same way i think it was good that all of the major pro-same sex marriage groups condemned the shooting but i do think it's problematic that the southern poverty law
5:45 am
center has created this environment in which they stoke the fires of calling people hate groups that aren't hate groups. we have tony perkins on our show tonight. i'm going to talk to him about that very thing and how the atmosphere is created to create hate toward people because you have deemed them hate groups. >> when you label someone a hate group who may not. >> in fact, be a hate group. aren't you promoting hatred? >> i think you are. you are actually giving them a label they don't deserve. a true hate group insights violence, insights insurrection. they demonstrate an air of superiority of one group of people and inferiority. there is a difference between a hate group and someone who has a very strong different point of view. >> go right ahead. >> only that in addition to the southern poverty law center, do you think that this event, this shooting, family research council got the media attention this deserved. >> no. it dot 17 seconds on nbc.
5:46 am
it got a little bit more on abc. but they did not even identify that the person who did the shooting was in fact a gay rights activist who had been volunteering at a gay rights center in the d.c. area. they failed to point out of the fact that the guy had 15 chick-fil-a sandwiches in his backpack and made comments to the person that he shot that, you know, please don't shoot me, i just don't like -- i hate what the people in this building do. this was a hate crime. it was terrorism. it was -- you know it was an evil act. >> when you carry chick-fil-a sandwiches into the scene of an assault, is a shooting and potentially mass murder. what are you saying? is that some insidious signal that family value groups need to be aware and need to be afraid based upon what they are saying? in the american forum? >> well, the essence of terrorism is to scare people into not doing what they would be doing or saying what they would be saying for fear that
5:47 am
there is going to be some type of violent reprisal. that's why this is unquestionably terrorism. when you do what he did with the props he took in with him, that was a clear signal to everyone who basically went and bought a chicken sandwich august 1st to say we are watching you people. i don't think people should live intimidated or afraid. we can't live our lives that way. number one fighting terrorism is not let them in by failing to stand up what we believe regardless of the cost. >> well said. >> get in to this tonight with tony perkins on the show. don't miss huckabee tonight will:00 eastern time. good to see you, governor. >> he was docked pay and moved to the graveyard shift after refusing to take part in a cultural event at a mosque. so have the pc police gone too far? we report on this. you decide. >> plus, hollywood celebs getting put through boot camp by real life u.s. marines. we're taking a look at a new reality show stars earn stripes next.

5:54 am
troops in the past. does this give us appreciation of some of the things you guys go through. it's not military but first responders as well. appreciates for some of the things you endure. >> i'm not going to sit here and say t isn't entertainment. obviously it has a certain wow value and people to watch and advertising dollars to come, in of course. this definitely is the most realistic show and dangerous show on television. >> despite all of the good that you now see it doing you didn't want to be involved originally you had fears about it it? >> i already had done reality show before. i have been there and done that i want to move past that i have been doing antiterrorism work. i didn't want to be a part of a show if i didn't feel 100% behind it once they pitched it to me and told me about it okay, that's something can i put my name on and be be proud to be a part. >> did you saved prince from drowning. >> i swam all the way back from the boat to help him when he was struggling in the

now. and paul ryan's workout. it was fun. speaking of paul ryan, he will be campaigning to seniors in florida this morning, talking about his proposals for medicare. >> alisyn: phil keating joins us live from one of our favorite places, the villages, with more on ryan's visit. hey, phil. >> reporter: good morning, yes, we've got many people on hand here and more on the way. and congressman ryan will be here in about 60 minutes from now, but we've got singing along and entertaining the crowd and playing an original, that was called "the and the race is on" is it ever. and the race for the white house, focusing on the medicare issue all day long today. now, mitt romney, he's going to be campaigning or actually fund raising up in massachusetts today. but earlier, this week, he was in iowa and he brought up the old white board accusing the obama administration of taking 716 billion dollars out of medicare to pay for the
6:02 am
affordable care act. also known as obamacare. and of course, the obama campaign denies that. and 700 billion dollars extended the life of the program by eight years. as for president obama, he will be talking about medicare all day as well. and there's a two o'clock in the afternoon, east coast time, rally and speech by the president up in new hampshire today and he's going to be talking about his plan of medicare, as well as the charge that the paul ryan bugetary plan for medicare and its future will end up talking senior citizens about $6,000 a year. now, a lot of people here are very excited here, as you can tell, and big fans here at the villages and vote for the republican candidate by 65%, they will not only do that in november, just as they did for senator john mccain four years ago, but they're fired up and they can't wait to see congressman ryan unveil his
6:03 am
mother, 78-year-old betty douglas, a person who is going to speak with authority. >> alisyn: thanks, phil. they know how to party at the villages. >> having fun already in the morning. >> alisyn: we were there for "fox & friends," a 15th anniversary. i can't do the macarena that many times in a row. >> dave: and amazing, consider there are 12,000 more people on social security in that zip code than any other zip code in the u.s. very lively bunch. not just medicare, but the issues that romney and ryan have been talking about on the campaign trail, jobs, apparently disappearing from the map. after news on friday, that the unemployment rate went up in 44 states here in the u.s., that's the most in three years. >> and the republican leaders are saying that the president doesn't want to talk about that at all. >> alisyn: yeah, i mean, this is bad news, in july, for the unemployment rate to have gone up particularly in the battle ground states and the swing states that are all important, come november and there are
6:04 am
about a dozen states and they had to have their unemployment rates going down steadily over the past year and then in july, they shot back up, only ohio, that all important state held steady at 7.2% unemployment. so, if you're looking for a be job this summer, it's been bad news out there. >> and congressman jason chasen says that the president is trying to distract americans from the real issue on jobs. >> and the states release their unemployment rate. 44 of the 50 states had unemployment go up this year. do you think the democrats want to talk about that? absolutely not. instead they want to try to distract and cause a distraction and say, look at the smoke over there, where there is none. >> and the question is, i think, for republicans is that bad economic news baked? because we haven't seen the poles move as the economy has gone up or down. and it seems to have stayed pretty consistent, with the last couple of jobs reports before the election make a difference? we shall see.
6:05 am
>> we know historically, though, there has not been a president reelected for these types of numbers. >> not with an 8 plus unemployment rate. >> and all morning and week we have been talking about what is a distraction, if the candidates need to just talk about the economy and jobs or if things like mitt romney's tax returns and joe biden's gaffes, are they relevant and significant to you? do they somehow help you in deciding who you want to be in the oval office or is really the only thing they should be focused on is the economy. >> or if joe biden promises you, that if mitt romney and congressman ryan win you'll be in chains? >> do you care about tax rates? let us know this weekend on twitter. >> let's get your other headlines. >> the gay rights activist charging fire at the family research office and targeting another christian conservative group as well ahead of the traditional values coalition,

6:09 am
guys, back to you. >> thanks so much, rick, remember when you were in college, and were you going on a road trip and you would take up a collection i don't think your friends for gas money. >> sure. >> alisyn: that same thing-- >> $2. >> the beginning of the trip. don't wait until you get to the gas station. >> alisyn: don't do it in you're an air france flight having an emergency lander in damascus, syria. >> dave: in where? damascus, syria, not exactly where you want to hear your plane emergency land in the middle of a civil where where people are being massacred. that's what happened on air france flight and asked the people to take up a collection to help pay for gas in the strange situation and actually the people forked over a lot of money, peter. >> he said bon jour, ami, we're now in damascus syria and no relationship with this country we're afraid they'll hold this plane hostage, give us 17,000 euros, 17,000 euros
6:10 am
the folks collected to make sure they had enough fuel to get off the ground because the air france folks were afraid they were going to need euros on the barrelhead to get the petrol to have the plane go up and out. >> dave: petrol, a man who has traveled out and about. >> alisyn: there are a lot of incredible parts of the story. 17,000 euros translates to 20,000 bucks and the fact that passengers had that on them in cash that they could raise the $20,000 on board. and you point out at any given moment about 2 or $3 on me. >> i think they're well healed travelers. >> dave: and they gave it back, and all the passengers, they did not need. an amazing story. and he refused to take part of in event. at a mosque and now this cop is working the graveyard shift an and has lost pay. have the police gone too far?

6:15 am
american islam forum of democracy, an author of battle for the soul of muslims, doctor jasser, good morning. >> good morning, it's great to be with you, thanks for having me. >> peter: thank you you for being here. what's this about? this police officer was ordered to go to an islamic cultural center and i'm not going to so-called law enforcement appreciation day. why did he decide not to go and why do you believe he made the right decision? >> well, i'll tell you, you know, this is a fascinating case because ultimately i think that legally the case will turn on the fact that, you know, this was a volunteer situation, they were appreciating the officers and listen, i don't want to go to this interfaith event. i'm a devout christian and i can't really respond to their theology and he was being put into an interfaith theological situation that he felt conflicted as a role as officer and superiors says,
6:16 am
you have to go or find some medical excuse and he said no, i don't want to go and they basically punished him and prevented him from getting raises and et cetera and listen, this is political correctness and it's wrong and i'll tell you, bigger than the legal issue upfront is the bigger issue about partners that are legitimate for law enforcement and they're talking about the strategy last summer that came out of a who is right partner and who is the not. and this mosque had radical speakers and the week before this event was held. an imam, who i've seen myself in the the mid '90s, pulled up a koran and said we need to as muslims change the constitution with this koran, so basically he's a separatist radical, unindicted co-con spoir toco-con-- c
6:17 am
co-conspirator, and to legitimize groups we have problems with. >> dave: ab captain paul fields tells us, quote, he was going to be in a place where people were going to refer to jesus christ as merely a prophet and not his lord and savior and he could not refer to him. can you imagine the way it was reversed and a cop had to go to a catholic center. do we ever hear of situations like this? >> well, we don't and this is where minority faith sometimes get used as tools for political correctness while the majority faith sort of gets, you know, thrown under the bus and i think at the end of the day we have to look is it effective or counterterrorism, there's no evidence it is. and as a muslim, do i want police officers coming that are coerced into coming? i don't think that's very islamic. >> the hard question, the tul tulsa police department for comment, we haven't heard back, but there is a
6:18 am
paramilitary organization, the question i ask of you, it's a reasonable question and i hear what your answer is, shouldn't police officers be-- go where they're told to go no matter what the faith. no matter what the political organization, no matter what stripe it is? even if it's in disagreement with their own religious cultural or political beliefs, don't they have an obligation to do that? how do you answer that as we close this out? >> officially, if it was official business, he was told it wasn't official law enforcement cases, no open cases, no open engagement. this was a volunteer bridge building and he said this isn't my role as a police officer. so he wasn't violating what he thought his mission was and i've seen them use this, i saw ahead of the fbi in phoenix, actually brought in for an award and dressed him down about police rounding up muslims, et cetera. so we have to be careful what's police enforcement versus community bridge building. >> dave: well, we welcome a statement from the tulsa police department if they want
6:19 am
to get in touch with us. dr. jasser, thanks for being with us. >> well said. >> and benched for being too big. should a 300 pound 12-year-old be able to play peewee football with his peers? >> and he could actually save you some bucks and restaurants, owners who are giving this, that's right. if you check your cell phone at the door. >> dave: not doing it. not doing it. ♪ i've been fortunate to win on golf's biggest stages. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit, even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections.

serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, whilen enbrel, you experice persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness.

6:25 am
people are very happy. >> what are they saying? >> well, they're saying what a brilliant idea. who would have thought, you know, i would have never given my phone unless someone actually suggested we do so and really enjoying it and actually, last night at a couple of tables said did it change the experience? and both tables said, you know, tremendously, it's such an amazing time and the experience and just really, just kind of being in the moment with each other and, it was a different experience in terms of the food and the dining experience. >> oh. >> it really is. >> and you even said, one even said, forget about the discount. they appreciated the gesture. mark gold, i love the idea. and it would be difficult to detach from this thing, but i think i'm on board. >> and i'm coming around. >> i appreciate that. >> wow, mark, good work. and that was almost unheard of. mark gold, again, the restaurant is eva restaurant and you've converted dave, who it is tethered to your hand. >> i appreciate that thank you. >> dave: and coming up on the show, her parents paid for her
