tv The O Reilly Factor FOX News September 13, 2012 5:00pm-6:00pm PDT
so he's going to the grove. very good idea. hope to see threw. should be fun. we're very excited. i know most of you don't know what i'm talking about. but isn't that really par for the course? hook em. >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight. >> islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. >> bill: president obama said that back in 2009 as he tried to convince the muslim world he's a friends. but his soft power policy has not worked. we will prove it to you tonight. anti-measure muslims continue to terrorize american embassies and the situation may be getting even more dangerous. laura ingraham has some thoughts. >> all these guys, just beat ago path to your door. >> bill: the president campaigning in some very questionable precincts. we'll show you his foray into
pop radio. >> i'm hoping i can get a little magic from you in this interview. >> bill: caution. you are about to enter the no aspirin zone. "the factor" begins right now. >> bill: hi. i'm bill o'reilly. president obama and the muslim world. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. at first the president took a soft power approach toward the muslim world hoping that by being sensitive he could convince a majority of muslims that the usa was not their enemy. that in response to the bush administration's hard power approach. on june 4, 2009, mr. obama said this in cairo. >> islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. we see it in the history of cordova during the inquisition.
i saw it firsthand as a child in indonesia where devout christians worshiped freely in an overwhelmingly muslim country. that is the spirit we need today. >> bill: that soft power approach has failed. might have been a good try, but it has not worked. here are the facts. compelling evidence out of pakistan shows that the government there was protecting osama bin laden. when u.s. navy seals finally caught up with bin laden, the pakinstani government imprisoned the man who helped us find him. the doctor, a pakinssurgeon, wa3 years in prison. that is a direct insult to america which gives pakistan more than $2 billion a year in aid. in afghanistan, where more than 2,000 americans have been killed, the government under karzai remains corrupt and largely unrespective in protecting americans. many afghans openly support the taliban and are 11 years in that country has been frustrating, to say the least. in iraq, that country is overly
defying the usa and the world, continuing its nuclear weapons development. no question iran is america's most dangerous enemy. in egypt, the muslim brotherhood now controls the government, anti-american demonstrations are commonplace. the egyptian government failed to protect the american embassy, which was looted this week. despite that, the usa continues to send billions of dollars to egypt. in yemen, the weak government there cannot control the terror group al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula, which is headquartered in that country. anti-american demonstrations are breaking out in yemen driven by the jihaddists. libya, there is chaos and the weak government there obviously cannot protect americans who are in the country. ambassador christopher stephens was a long time friends to libyans, but assassinated tuesday. you can see the evidence is overwhelming. much of the muslim world is not friendly to the the usa despite president obama's outreach. so now it is time for america to change its strategy.
talking points does not believe it's smart to openly antagonize any muslim government, with the exception of iran. that country will most likely have to be dealt with by military in some fashion. however, mr. obama has an obligation, an obligation to punish governments like egypt which allow attacks on american citizens. let me repeat, the president must punish the egyptians. we are living in a dangerous world. the president's first priority is to protect americans, period. that's a memo. now the top story tonight, another point of view, joining us from washington congressman keith ellisson who himself a muslim. where am i going wrong here, congressman? >> you're going wrong because you're grossly overgeneralizing and you're forgetting about all of the libyans who held up plaque cards today which were visible to american eyes on tv saying they apologized, that they love and appreciate ambassador christopher stevens
and you're forgetting about the fact that both in yemen and in egypt and libya that these governments have apologized and that these radicals, trouble makers who you correctly identify are trouble makers, tonight represent the vast majority of the people who live in those countries. then again you make the mistake of that only folks on the arab world. you forgot about what president obama said about indonesia, also malaysia, and other parts of the world that have muslim majorities that are not in arab countries. >> arthel: so you're telling me -- >> bill: number one, i wasn't generalized. i was very specific. pakistan not a friends to the usa. hurting america. afghanistan, despite all we've done, still not a friend to us. iran, absolute danger to us. egypt, used to be a friend. now that mubarak is out, they're not a friend any longer. even president obama said that today. he didn't say they were enemy, though. >> bill: i'm not going to --
>> egypt -- >> bill: i am going to say the egyptian government knew the demonstrators were going to attack the embassy and didn't stop it. you as a sitting congressman have to take that seriously and you have to say to president obama, we can't be sending them money if this continues examine we have to punish them. how would you punish the egyptian government for what happened this week? >> first of all, i want to get to the bottom of the facts. i think there is a lot of things we just don't know. >> bill: nobody is denying the egyptian government didn't know before hand that this was going to happen. nobody is denying that. >> we don't know that. >> bill: yeah, we know it! wait, wait, no. no. the embassy in cairo even says they knew the attack was coming, which is why they issued the statement that hey, we're not your enemies. they knew it was coming. so come on, let's not play games tonight, congressman! >> no games being played here. what i'm saying is we don't know what they knew, we don't know what assumeses. i think there needs to be some
serious conversations within the united states and egypt. >> bill: there has been serious conversations for the last year. >> to leap to a conclusion that we should punish someone, i'm not sure that the evidence supports that at this point. the last thing we need is to basically make matters worse. what we need to do is figure out exactly what morsi knew, when did he know it examine insist that they protect our embassy as they -- >> bill: even if -- believe me when i tell you, it's going to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that these attacks in cairo and libya were coordinated on 9-11 as a direct act of war against the united states. so when you get that, when you get that, and you will, all right, then you say what? you must prepare for something. what are you prepared to do if indeed that is proven? >> if you let me talk, i'll tell you. >> bill: all right. >> you're mixing up libya and egypt. >> bill: no, i'm not. >> they're two different
countries. >> bill: let's just stay on egypt. >> the libyan government apologized to, the libyan people apologized. so you can't just say libya and egypt. >> bill: i'm saying the attacks were coordinated by the jihaddists in both countries. let's stay on egypt. if it is proven the government knew, what do you do? >> well, we first of all, we need to -- you want me to assume what we would do. i don't even know what we can find out until we investigate. >> bill: you're notle to say -- you haven't even thought about how to punish this government? >> i've thought about it. >> bill: then tell us. >> but there is different paths to go down depending on what the facts are. we don't have those yet, bill. so what you're trying to get me to do is to commit to a course of action without even knowing everything we need to know to make a good decision. >> bill: you've got to think about what you are going to do when, not if, when the facts
come out that the egyptian government knew this was going to take place. they did. you know they did. you don't gather hundreds of jihaddists in the middle of cairo, you been to cairo? have you been there? n about three times. >> bill: so you know the military authorities can knock that down in ten minutes if they want to. if they want to, the military comes in, they can knock it down. >> last time i was there, there were public protests going on as i was there. i could hear them out of a window when we were trying to talk -- >> bill: difference between protests and an attack. >> but you tonight's know if the egyptian officials knew there was going to be an attack or thought it was just a protest. >> bill: the american embassy says they did. that's what i got to go by. congressman, we appreciate it. good debate. we appreciate it. next on the rundown, laura ingraham on whether mitt romney is handling the middle east violence correctly. later, president obama campaigning on pop radio. is that a wise thing to do? we're coming right back.

>> bill: america's policy toward the muslim world, here now fox news analyst and radio talk show star laura ingraham. i have a sound bite to play you from peggy noonan. but i want you to react to the congressman first. >> i think your talking points memo laid it out. we have a situation in the middle east today where the
obama administration has touted this idea of an arab spring. it sounded all very hopeful to the american people, i'm sure. but in the end, america's interests have been undermined by forces that we can't control. we sent $1.5 billion recently to egypt. yet we couldn't get a quick statement out of egypt to condemn the violence that had taken place. >> bill: this shouldn't happen. >> and the idea that we don't have a 9-11, our security perimeter established that cannot be breached, on 9-11 of all days? >> bill: i don't know if the embush era tax cuts with the marine guards they have in cairo could have prevented this kind of demonstration, but i notify the egyptian military could have and they knew it was going to happen. they knew and didn't do anything. >> we know in libya. >> bill: that's a different situation. >> we know that we lost track of our ambassador for eight hours and the president went to sleep that night, apparently not being briefed or told about any of
this. >> bill: the libyan situation is just mass chaos. egyptian situation shouldn't be. all right. now, after the assassination, okay, and then after the looting of the american embassy, mitt romney came out and criticized the obama administration. we all remember that. then a conservative columnist, peggy noonan, "wall street journal," said this. >> i don't feel mr. romney has been doing himself any favors say, in the past few hours issue perhaps since last night. sometimes when really bad things happen, when hot things happen, cool words or no words is the way to go. >> bill: and you say? >> let me just say to my dear friend, peggy. >> bill: she's your dear friend? n she is. she's a dear friend of mine. what on earth is she talking about? in my mind, mitt romney was quite reserved in his written statement that was issued late on tuesday night. remember, he came out and spoke
because a statement had been issued, bill, as you pointed out by our embassy in cairo empathizing with the people who were supposedly offended by the film, they then tweeted out a reaffirmation of that statement, empathizing are those people who are supposedly offended by an internet film, and then they retracted their tweet when they realized that this thing was figuratively at the time back in the united states, blowing up. the president and his team said, whoa, whoa, that embassy statement doesn't represent what we believe. mitt romney made his statement on the right timing and the right time line and substantively correct. >> bill: i didn't have a problem with the governor's statement either. i think i know where peggy noonan is coming from. she said, look, whenever there is death and destruction, you don't want to knee jerk it. >> i don't think did he that. >> bill: no, he made one slight mistake. and maybe it's not slight. the reason -- we said this last night. the reason that cairo embassy issued a statement was to try to
stop the attack. >> you know something? that doesn't work. we've done this, bill. we've started doing this preemptive apology deal in 2008. we said america was arrogant, dismisssive and dresssive examine -- >> bill: let me ask you, i'm appointing you as the ambassador to egypt. okay? laura ingraham, you're in cairo. you see this mob which is why i don't think congressman ellisson's points of view has any validity. you see this mob gathering. and you know that things are on the horizon and you know that the marines that you have are not enough -- >> let me tell you something. >> bill: what do you do? >> i'm not an expert in diplomacy, i wouldn't pretend to be. but die know that our history of looking weak in the face of threats, real or imminent, has only served to do one thing, bill. embolden those people who don't give a rat's you know what about an internet film. what they care about is the mere presence of jews and christians and what they believe is their -- >> bill: stupid film --
>> it has nothing to do with it. hillary clinton, you want to talk about peggy. peggy should be focusing on the fact that hillary clinton comes out today and is going on and on about this film as the film has anything to do with it inform it doesn't have anything to do with it. it's just an excuse. >> bill, peggy is falling into the median narrative. all these media people should be out there asking this question: how did we lose track of our ambassador for eight hours? what happened to him during those eight hours? why don't we have a forward marine military presence on 9-11 in all of our military and sovereign facilities around the world? it's stunning. mitt romney is the problem? i don't think so. >> bill: if o'reilley was the ambassador, i would have called secretary of state clinton and i would have called the president. >> wake him up. >> bill: and said, we're in trouble here. you have to go on tv right now and tell the egyptian government to protect us. the world wide communication system? that's what you have to do. get out in front of it, say
we're worried about this. you got to protect us. that way no wiggle room. >> apparently they put out statements that the white house doesn't approve and then they don't call the president before he goes to sleep. mitt romney is the problem here. okay, media. do your job. >> bill: every embassy in the world watches this program. from now on if you think you're in danger, you go public right away. >> apologizing gets us into more trouble. it always has. >> bill: directly ahead, cornell west on president obama's muslim outreach and the terrible problem of poverty in america. later, what you can do to punish egypt for its transgressions. those reports after these messages. >> announcer: with nothing but his computer, an identity thief is able to use your information to open a bank account in order to make your money his money.

highest level since 1993. more than 46 million people in that category. joining us from washington, dr. cornell west, tavis miley, co-authoring a book. dr. west, before we get to that, any comments about the president's muslim policy? >> i think we just have to keep in mind that the vast majority of our muslim brothers and sisters are decent people. very decent. in fact, we all have lunatic friends in our religion. as a christian, i have lunatic friends much but we have to be committed to both respect and tolerance of one another, my brother. >> bill: all right. but i think that individual people aren't the issue right now. it's the government's controlling what happens. the muslim governments in some countries aren't doing that. others like iran are exacerbating the situation. let's get to your expertise. you're on a poverty tour across
the country. you know what? i applaud you both. i think that you guys are really doing a service and you're very compassionate toward people who don't have very much. that's why i want to ask you, and we'll begin with you, tavis, very specific questions. all right. we have stats that show that if you have a college degree in the united states, your unemployment rate is 4%. that's it. okay? but if you have a less than high school degree, if you drop out of high school, your unemployment rate is 12%. so the correlation between education and working and poverty, that's what it's all about. am i wrong? >> you are absolutely right. we're starting off on a note of harmony tonight. we don't disagree on that. number two, education is not the great equalizer that it once used to be. number three, there are so many millions of americans who are degreed out their ears, but they still can't find a job for one,
two, three, four years. >> bill: only 4%, though. that's not a lot. the median income for those people is very comfortable. you guys have asked the government for very specific things, doctor, like a higher minimum wage. how much do you want? what do you think the minimum wage should be? >> if in fact a minimum wage kept up with the changes over the last 40 years, it would be almost twice of what it is now. when we look at the profits -- >> bill: that's almost 20 bucks an hour that you're asking for. about 20 bucks an hour. >> say roughly. could be between 16 and 21. we're also talking about -- can you imagine if small businesses were sub disized the way wall street is subsidized. we're talking about private sector playing its role in relation to government. >> bill: okay. i have a small business. all right? i have a corporation and runs a
bunch of stuff. my lecture, my bookser the web site. so you want me to pay minimum wage 16 to 20 bucks. okay? all right. i don't really have a problem with that. what else do you want, doctor? what else should i be providing for people i hire? >> i'm not sure your business would be the sole model of what we're talking about. we're talking about poor children. we're talk being people in a variety of different context. we want a fundamental fairness in this society -- >> bill: i don't know what that means. educate me. hold it. let me set up the scenario so you can talk specifically. single mother, inner city, two children, two different fathers, they don't help. they're poor. that's the vast majority of poverty driven by single mom homes. okay? so you got the single mom. got the two kids. they don't have a lot of money. what should we do for them? >> let me back up 'cause i love the question, but i want to
tweak it just a bit because the people that we're talk being today, bill, were being hurt in this economy are not just single mothers -- >> bill: stay on that point. >> no, i don't have to stay on that point respectfully because you're missing the point. the point is millions of american, not just single moms. >> bill: but millions of single mothers and their children are in that category. why don't you want to answer that question? millions of poor people are in that circumstance. >> absolutely. and i said many times on this tour that the reason why so many women and children are falling fast noor poverty than anybody else is what we thought we were doing 15 years ago to reform welfare. it turns out to be a deform. we put up the social safety net examine these women and children are falling through and that's why 9 million kids? of you just took a minute of very valuable air time and told me nothing. what do you do? >> let me say it again. you put women and children first in your public policy. number one. >> bill: i don't know ha what
that means. >> you raise the minimum wage, number two. when you suggest that you own a small business and you want to pay $16, you ain't got a problem. what else do you want? stop. if we were to pay people -- if every business in the country felt like you felt and paid them $16 an hour, that would be a major, major start. let's start there inform all right. okay. do you have anything to add to the single mom scenario with two children in poverty, doctor? does society, the federal government, what else should they do -- >> job training, bill. >> bill: what if the mom says, i can't go to job training. i got two kids in the house. >> transportation. >> you know what i would do -- >> bill: you want the van to come, pick up the mom and the kids, and take them to job training. is that what you want? >> we would want quality education. we would want jobs of a living wage, child care for her children. and we want her to make sure they live in a neighborhood so they don't have drugs drugs andn
coming in and out. >> bill: do you want the national guard to come in? >> no, it would be a community that would have jobs with a living wage, with decent house examining quality of school system. you know what? you definitely believe that that sister that you're talking about or whatever color, she has the same value as a human being as donald trump. >> bill: absolutely i agree. and i'm looking for solutions to poverty. >> i know, but i would want our leaders, i would want our leaders to say that publicly and treat her with the same dignity that you treat donald trump or i treat donald trump. >> bill: i don't know if trump deserves that kind of dignity. [ laughter ] gentlemen, we'll continue the discussion and again, i aplaid you guys for trying to help. plenty more ahead. president obama campaigning on pop radio stations. we'll play you an amazing clip. then megyn ill kelly on requiring americans to show up at the polls.

at johndee.com/gator. >> bill: culture warrior segment of the as everybody know, president obama is out on the campaign trail and some of the places he's stopping are unusual. the other day he called into a miami radio station and talk with the d.a. whose nickname is, ready, the pimp with a limp. >> i am humbled right now, sir. >> i'm the one who should be humbled.
you're big time. >> i'm nobody. [ laughter ] >> you got pit bull and all these guys just, you know, beating a path to your door and so, you know, i'm hoping that i can get a little of that magic from you in this interview. >> bill: here to analyze, gretchen carlson in connecticut and jeanine pirro, author of "sly fox." so, now, all i want you to do, gut reaction. just gut reaction. president of the united states talking to the pimp with a limp. and you say? >> look, two people on a street corner, they look like they could vote, i jump out of the car and shake their hands. i don't care who they were, two legs, it doesn't matter. the pimp with a limp who has an interesting background. but you've got to reach out to everybody and not everybody lives -- isn't that what he's doing? >> bill: i don't know what he's doing. >> not everybody watches.
>> bill: so you say you're running for office. >> hit it. >> bill: you have to embrace everyone. >> and i say, oh, my gosh. i say this is total pandering to the youth vote, trying to reignite the magic of 2008. this is an avoidance of the real reporters by doing interviews with e.t., people magazine, and radio stations that ask him whether or not he likes green or red salsa better. just because he talks hip-hop and football, doesn't mean young people are going to suddenly get jobs and that's what this whole thing is all about. >> bill: can't do you both? can't you do the soft interviews and at the same time, do the sub tantive interviews? >> yeah, but he hasn't. >> bill: here is the strategy. and i want to be fair here. both of them are basically treading water until the debates. they don't want to raise any controversy. they don't want to talk to me or anybody else that they might get put on the spot. so we understand that. after the debates begin, we expect both the governor and the president to come on. >> i think there is a difference when you are currently the president of the united states.
>> bill: now that's a valid point because he is the president. >> there is no question. but what is implicit in that answer is a suggestion that someone is better than someone else. every vote is equal. and if you have to -- it's true. >> what do you think politician december? they pander. >> bill: hold it. they do. what about appropriate venues? >> he knows his likeability factor is 61% and the way to get people to vote for you is to like you. if you're talking pit bull that, segment will light up. >> you know what? >> bill: i got something i got to get to carlson. i want to put up the ten most influential marijuana users. according to this project that devotes its life to get stoned and ebriateb. barak obama, used marijuana, clarence thomas said he used it
once or twice. clinton didn't inhale. newt gingrich says he did. and on and on. so this is another effort, carlson, to convince americans that marijuana is just a good thing and all these prohibitions are terrible. let's get everybody high and we'd all be better off. you say? >> it's ridiculous, number one. you know how i feel about this because i believe that marijuana use leads to harder drug use. this whole lobby be effort is to try examine show the american people and the members of congress that, look, even if you smoke pot, you can become president of the united states. >> bill: you smoke it every day, you're not going to be able to do that. >> a big difference. >> the bottom line here is that they're talking about people who tried it and -- >> bill: some of them used it a lot. >> some used it regularly. if they did, their brains would be fried. we've been through this before. >> bill: do you really believe that?
>> because marijuana today is far more dangerous than it was 20, 30 years ago. >> bill: as a former prosecutor, you really believe that somebody who smokes marijuana on a daily basis is harming themselves? >> absolutely. >> bill: physically and emotionally? >> physically. think about lung cancer and cigarettes. seven times more carbon monoxide and there is another chemical and tar than regular cigarettes. three joints equal one pack of cigarettes. you hold that carbon monoxide and that tar in your lungs to get a benefit. then you're fried. >> bill: how did you morph into dr. manny? culture warriors. when we come back, megyn kelly on suppressing the vote this coming november. is that really happening? kelly is next ú0 bob...
oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good call on those mugs. can't let 'em see what you're drinking. you know, i'm glad we're both running a nice, clean race. no need to get nasty. here's your "honk if you had an affair with taylor" yard sign. looks good. [ male announcer ] fedex office. now save 50% on banners. >> bill: thanks for staying with us. i'll bill o'reilly. today the pennsylvania supreme
court began tributing over whether or not pennsylvanians should be required to show photo i.d. before they vote. 33 states have voter i.d. laws and the democratic party says those laws suppress turnout among the poor and minorities. here with the story, attorney and of course fox news anchor megyn kelly. first of all, i don't believe they suppress the vote. i think everybody should have an i.d we live in a time -- >> photo i.d. >> bill: lot of fraud around and i don't think it's a burden on anybody to get a photo i.d am i wrong? >> well, they stipulated in the pennsylvania case that they have no knowledge of any fraud, of any in person fraud whatsoever in pennsylvania or elsewhere and they wouldn't be offering a any evidence of that. >> bill: who is they? >> the state. the state concede there is no voter fraud. >> bill: they can't find one example of voter fraud? i find that hard to believe. >> that's what they stipulated. voter fraud is tough to prove. they feel like it's happening, but can't necessarily prove it
because if i show up and i have the i.d. of somebody else and no one challenges me on it and i get away -- >> bill: you vote and we've seen that in massachusetts examine illinois. >> they're not resting their hat on that in pennsylvania. >> bill: so they say we're not going to show any examples of voter fraud. >> they say we want to make thursday there is confidence in the elections. they long believe there has been ballot stuffing, ballot box stuff not guilty particular in philadelphia. so they believe there maybe be some funny business. >> bill: are they likely to win with that? >> they won in the lower court. the lower court judge said it's fine of the you got to show a photo i.d. to get aonian airplane and all these things. and the legislature has a legitimate interest in creating that sort of confidence in the process. but now the supreme court, which is made up of six justices because one justice is being investigated by, like -- >> bill: voter fraud, right? no. >> that justice is not going to help decide. so it's 3 republican, three democrats. >> bill: deadlocked, then what happens? >> then the lower court ruling
upholding the law will stand. >> bill: that's what will happen. >> that's what i thought before i saw how the arguments we want. it sounds like -- you never know u about it sounds like the state was given a tough time today by even some of the republican judges. so i don't know how it's going to commute. >> bill: the other states have it. >> that's right. but one of the things they were caught up in pennsylvania was why now? there is only 60 days 'til the election. why don't we give this case a chance to play out on the merits as a opposed to a preliminary injunction and not change everything right before the election. >> bill: all right. here in new york state they don't have jessica's law and we obviously covered that horrible sentence by a new york state judge of two years for a child rapist. now the feds stepped in examine the guy will probably get ten for crossing state lines. however, we criticized governor cuomo who doesn't seem to care much about jessica's law, but he did close a loophole in the child porn situation. >> we covered the case of this college professor who was arrested and convicted on several counts of child
pornography. including possession of child porn. and of two those many 100 plus counts were thrown out because they said well, he didn't technically possess the pornography because it was just in the cache of his computer memory. he wasn't holding it. he didn't affirmatively take steps to download it or save it. it's just he had gone to the page and the computer retained like a cookie in its memory and that doesn't qualify as possessing child porn. they said we don't like it either. but it's the new york state legislature's job to revise the statute to broaden the definition of suppose, which they did, and governor cuomo signed the law. it won't affect this college professor. now if they find it in your computer memory and they can prove you intentionally accessed the page. it's not like you're surfing along -- >> bill: you went there examine got it. >> if they can prove you accessed the page -- inform it's a felony? >> yeah. now four years in prison. >> bill: so they toughened that
