with -- the pegasis. the seven-foot spacecraft will orbit earth and study a small but mysterious region of the sun. [hums twilight zone] >>steve: this brand-new photo of aaron hernandez has surface. here he is posing with a fan. it is believed to have been taken hours after the murder of odin lloyd. the jailed nfl star is being investigated this morning for two more potential murders. >> good morning. it seems to be getting more and more wild by the day. late last night police returning to the home of former new england patriot aaron hernandez. they are look at a possible connection between the 23-year-old and a drive-by shooting that killed two young men last year in boston. the startling twist in the case coming as hernandez's second bid for bail was
3:05 am
rejected. detectives are investigating whether hernandez killed odin lloyd because he may have had information about his role in these unsolved murders. the two men were killed after reportedly getting into an argument at a nightclub with a group that included hernandez. family members of the victims are now speaking out. >> it feels fresh to us. every time we get out, we remember him crying. but we miss him. >> meantime this morning, police issuing an alert for a third suspect wanted in connection with the murder of odin lloyd. his name is earnest wallace and he's considered armed and dangerous. they believe he was one of the two men in the car with hernandez the night lloyd was shot and killed. the other person in the carlos ortiz was arrested yesterday. let's talk about the news of the day, where edward snowden is.
3:06 am
he applied for asylum in ecuador. ecuador is basically laughing in the u.s.'s face over this saying we don't care whatever pressure you want to exert on us. we have our own process and we're not going to listen to you big bullies. >> the raw contempt from the president of ecuador for the united states is striking. wasn't president obama supposed to make the rest of the world like us and respect us. >>steve: the president of the ecuador, we heard people go ecuador gets a lot of u.s. aid. the president of ecuador said we don't need your stinkin' money. you can't tell us what to do. you're not the boss of me, and things to that effect. he later backed off. it goes to show how the mighty have fallen. yesterday the president was in africa and he did do that joint press availability where he was asked about the snowden case and snowden is still
3:07 am
holed up at the airport in moscow. the president seemed to many to be like wait a minute, they changed their narrative again. now they're backing off. rather than talking about how he's an n.s.a. guy or a government employee, instead he's boiled down to simply a 29-year-old hacker. here's the president. listen. >> i have not called president xi personally or president putin personally, and the reason is because, number one, i shouldn't have to. this is something that routinely is dealt with between law enforcement officials and various countries. and this is not exceptional from a legal perspective. no, i'm not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker. >>steve: some have suggested the reason he refers to him as a hacker rather than as an n.s.a.
3:08 am
employee or anything else like that would be to distance him from the government. >>tucker: he didn't hack into government computer systems to get this information. he was employed by intelligence agencies and had legal access to this information. that is the most arrogant display i've seen from this president. >>alisyn: he's trying not to elevate edward snowden. >>steve: they already did that. they elevated him earlier and now they are backing off from it. >>alisyn: it is hard to know how important edward snowden is. is he the most wanted man or if he is a 29-year-old with some sort of beef. you hear what the president is doing. he's saying this is a kid who is a hacker. the president isn't going to engage on that level. but it's tough when all these other countries are basically flouting u.s. law. >>steve: it's also tough for the president of the united states to say this guy who is regarded by many as perhaps the most significant leaker or whistle-blower in history, i'm not going to pick up the phone and talk to other
3:09 am
people about it. but when you look at some of the other people the president has called not relateed to this case, but you saw a couple of days ago, he called someone in california about the same-sex marriage, sandra fluke, michael vick. the president has time to call all those people but he can't pick up the phone to try to get his hands -- >>tucker: so michael vick, who is famous because he tortured dogs to death, gets rehired after he gets out of jail and the president thinks it is so exciting that he calls the owner. that is repulsive. >>alisyn: it is not that he doesn't have time. what he's saying is there are international protocols in place and the president shouldn't have to cajole and beg other countries to give us back a suspected
3:10 am
criminals. that is not how it works. >>tucker: they should be so impressed it is barack obama, president of the united states, do his will. >>alisyn: he has his process. there is a process and the other leaders should respect the process. >>steve: the problem is remember when the president went over to europe to make sure he brought home the olympics for chicago and that blew up in his face and he didn't do that. >>tucker: this is the one thing we were going to get, this and improved race relations. the world will respect us. people will do our bidding because he is the president. >>alisyn: and the most transparent president. >>tucker: sorry. >>alisyn: campaign promises don't work outs. >>steve: if he asks putin for something -- it is a power struggle. putin would love the opportunity to stick his finger in the president's eye and he is doing it with this. if the president is not
3:11 am
successful in getting snowden back, it shows the limitation of our president's international influence. it is waning. >>alisyn: let's talk about what was going on on capitol hill this week where they were trying to get answers about why the i.r.s. targeted conservative and tea party groups. so the acting i.r.s. head here -- and acting is the operative word -- was not answering any of members of congress's questions. watch this exchange. >> you're not conducting interviews. you don't know answers to the key questions. yet in your report, you declare there is no evidence of intentional wrongdoing or misconduct on the part of i.r.s. personnel. no evidence of intentional wrongdoing. mr. werfel, this report is a sham. this is junk. this has no meaning. >> it might be junk, but it might be sensitive taxpayer information. >> it's not. we know it's not. you're hiding behind it. i'm telling you, i'm
3:12 am
putting you on notice, this committee intends to uphold the 1998 act and follow through on it to make sure the i.r.s. is forth coming and not creating a bunch of nonsense hiding behind bureaucratic double-talk. >>steve: mr. werfel was there because it was 30 days later and they were supposed to report back, give us the names of the people who did the targeting and whose idea it was. he didn't have any names. what's interesting though is the real headline is from a couple of days ago, a bunch of democrats said look at this, according to the treasury department apparently they targeted progressive groups. and jay russell george, the i.r.s. i.g., said that they did put 6 progressive groups on a list versus the 292 tea party groups. 100% of them were targeted for extra scrutiny. and those six progressive groups were simply put on a list. >>tucker: for more than
3:13 am
two years not a single tea party group received tax exempt status. >>steve: one other thing. mr. werfel had the audacity to ask the committee for an extra $1 billion. by the way, the i.r.s. needs $1 billion more to run things. and dave camp says not until you can prove that you know how to manage your money. >>alisyn: you've got to know your audience. coming up slower growth and fewer jobs. why is wall street happen about that? up next. >>tucker: one wild ride for this jockey after he's thrown for tpr* his horse. that's just the start. the horse keeps right on the horse keeps right on going with him. hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios

3:18 am
with a growth rate that's low? >> here's basically the deal. the fed put the stimulus in place. they have not necessarily indicated when it will be over. it indicates government confidence in the economy, or at least it's there to be of support. investors feel like that's a good thing. if you look over the last two weeks, what's really interesting is the fed last week or the week before said we may taper and roll back the stimulus and you saw the markets tank for a couple of days. now over the past three days we've had three-day consistent rises over 100 points and the dow rising, right, because traders are less scared, investors are less scared the fed is going to roll back the stimulus because this hasn't been as much talk about it lately. if you take a look at this chart, we have something to show you here. it is the fed balance sheet and the dow and they rise in lock step over the past couple of years since the stimulus has been in place. you can see that it basically is a support system. some people will say it's a punch bowl. it allows the dow to continue rising.
3:19 am
>>alisyn: as soon as there's talk the fed may be rolled back, investors get scared? >>steve: the dow goes off something like 500 points. the conventional wisdom now is they wouldn't dare taper it off at this point and that is why things are okay? >> they know they will eventually taper. more talk the fed chief says he's going to do that. >>alisyn: is that all the market is based on? not housing, not jobs? >> there is a lot of mixed numbers. we had good economic data yesterday. it certainly does have an impact. consumer confidence, housing, unemployment rate and things like that. so long the stimulus is there from the fed, the stock market is feeling pretty good about it. >>tucker: it sound like the cheap money the fed is printing is better for bankers than the rest of the country? >> it is good if you're investing in the stock market right now. it is something to think
3:20 am
about because the data is something to argue with if you watch that lock step. they're in sync right now. you want the fed to roll back the stimulus, right, because you want the economy to be healthy. but if they roll it back and stocks go sliding, it could be ao short-term challenge for a lot of investors. it could hurt 401(k)s. >>steve: next up on the rundown, where did more than 1,000 guns go? it's a good question and you know what? police have no clue. russia snubbing the united states on more than just the n.s.a. leaker. putin about to ruin one of putin about to ruin one of obama's biggest dreams. look what mommy is having.

3:25 am
also about building a mid-range missile, all this while president obama is calling for nuclear arms reduction. what happened to that pledge to reset relations with russia? bill joins us from washington, d.c. thanks for joining us. it sound like russia hasn't gotten the word that there's been a reset in this relationship and they are supposed to be obeying the rules. what's going on? >> this is a major story. it's been percolating on capitol hill for the past nine months. it has to do with a major violation of the i. ph-fpl f. treat -- with the i.m.f. treaty, it has to do with the russians testing a new missile that would violate the treaty. it is clear the russians are building up their nuclear forces. this is bad news for the obama administration arms control-centered agenda. >>tucker: the white house -- you would have no
3:26 am
sense of this from listening to the white house or the president himself talk about our new relationship with russia. are they aware of this? >> well, they are trying to cover it up. there is a report due to capitol hill. it was due april 15. it hasn't been produced yet. the chairman of the house armed services and intelligence committee wants that report and they want it to reflect what they have called a major violation of a treaty that affects u.s. national security. >>tucker: the president seems incredibly naive in light of this. there is word in your story that the russians are seeking to develop sophisticated space-based weapons. >> this was announced by vladimir putin, the russian president, that at a time when the u.s. is trying to ban space weapons and the chinese are building space weapons, now we have the russians also following suit. of course this is a key strategic vulnerability for the u.s. because so much of what we do is based on
3:27 am
satellites, communications, command and control of military forces. >>tucker: you really get the sense the president is caught in a 1983 time warp, you know, that mutually assured destruction and all the sort of language of arms control in the 1980's. he seems caught in that era. >> talk about a cold war mentality, most of the president's national security advisors come from this pro-arms control school of thought. and they basically think that the best way to ensure security is through arms control agreements. the problem with that is, and history has shown the u.s. usually ends up abiding by these accords but the russians and others do not. >>tucker: always a point to remember, we're the only ones playing by the rules. bill, thank you for joining us. a woman gives her kidney for saving her boss's life and then gets fired? what happened there?

antidepressants and all those sort of things. >>steve: you saw best doctors in this country but it wasn't until you went where? >> to belgium. they figured they would do an old-fashioned test to diagnose lyme. it takes six weeks. they called me back and said the doctors in america didn't chronic you with chronic tick system but you have chronic lyme disease. >> chronic lyme disease is when the disease has been with you for a long period of time. if you get bitten by a tick today and go on antibiotics, quite often you can nip it in the bud. >>steve: you don't remember seeing a tick on you? you didn't have the bull's eye? >> no. i'm kind of a tom boy and live in the barn most of the time, i could have been stung and not know it.
3:49 am
>> is there anything we can do to protect ourselves? >> when you go outside, check yourself, check your children. if you see a tick on you, go straight to the doctor, a doctor that understands lyme disease because a lot of doctors don't understand lyme disease. and just be cautious. >>steve: i think you warned a lot of people be careful when you're out there. yolanda foster from "real housewives of beverly hills" thank you for joining us. >>alisyn: remember how fired up senator joe manchin was earlier this week about the president's climate change plan? >> i should not have to be sitting here as a u.s. senator fighting my own president and my own government. that's ridiculous. >>alisyn: democratic congresswoman debby wasserman schultz will be here to respond. >> sick of sitting in the waiting room waiting for a doctor. do they keep you there on

am. >> alisyn: we can all agree nothing is worse than your doctor keeping you waiting when you're sick. is your doctor really that busy or what is he doing that's making him late? is he really out on the golf course? joining us to separate fact from fiction is dr. mark siegle. hi. >> great to see you. >> alisyn: why are doctors always late? if you have a 2:00 p.m. appointment, why does it never happen then? >> the answer is paperwork. it's a myth that they're out on the golf course. we used to be out on the golf course, but now we're under
3:54 am
piles and piles of it. 50% or more of our time is spent on paperwork. half of that on nonclinical stuff. but for those that are on the golf course, 87% are being asked medical questions. so we can't escape it. >> alisyn: you never get away. in other words, doctors now adays are not playing golf? >> definitely not. they don't want you waiting. 'cause when you wait, more pressure on the doctor. >> alisyn: the next question is, are doctors deliberately keeping patients waiting? you're not doing that to gin up interest? >> that's definitely a myth. that varies on why in the country you are. in denver, it's short. about 15 minutes. mississippi, 25 minutes. the difference has to do with probably the paperwork and the culture of the area. but it's very variable. even 15 minutes is too long to be waiting and people are nervous when they're not feeling well. i'm sympathetic, but i also have the paperwork. >> alisyn: do doctors like it when patients ask questions or
3:55 am
is that just more time consuming? >> patients think we don't like it. good doctors like it 'cause when you ask a question, it tells me something about you. it tells me what you're worried about and i can filter it. i can say, well, that's something you should worry about or shouldn't. stuff from the internet that comes in, i'm used to and i know how to handle it. >> alisyn: here is a common conception. that is that doctors order a lot of tests, we're being overtested because doctors are afraid of being sued. >> i think overall that's a myth. most of the time doctors are ordering a lot of tests 'cause we have a lot we can be looking for. we'd rather not miss something even if it's only there 2 or 3% of the time. you don't want me to miss something. rather that i test and find something rare than miss it entirely and something bad happens later on of the it's in order to get it early. >> alisyn: let's talk about your salary. [ laughter ] there is a conception that doctors are loaded, that doctors make a lot of money. are they being paid as much as we think? >> i don't want people out there
3:56 am
to be feeling sorry for doctors. but the truth is, doctors are making less than you think they're making. they're making less and less all the time and being asked to do more and more. more regulation under obamacare. nobody is going to cry for this. the average income of a doctor is somewhere around 150 to 200,000. that's a lot. but there is a lot for that and a lot of training. >> alisyn: it's less than we think that is. >> that's right. >> alisyn: always great to talk to you. >> great to see you. >> alisyn: president obama says he should not have to deal with national threats like nsa leaker edward snowden. but courage ollie north says that's just dangerous. >> this president in his description of a, quote, 29-year-old hacker has set a new standard for imcompetence. >> alisyn: we have more from the colonel at the top of the hour. and you love the music. we're bringing it to you. the doobie brothers are live and rocking on our plaza. ♪

4:03 am
judge has denied him bail yet again. authorities believe odin lloyd, the man hernandez is accused of killing, had information that linked hernandez to that drive-by shooting. earlier this morning, italian police arrested a bishop and two other men in the most high profile money laundering bust at the vatican. the bishop is accused of trying to smuggle $26 million into italy on a government plane and that plane never did get off the ground. the arrest coming two days after pope francis chris ordered a massive investigation into the vatican's bank. we have brand-new information about that contractor paid to screen people for top secrete clearance, including edward snowden. they apparently only did half the job. they're supposed to conduct two reviews of every candidate. but from 2008 to 2011, they skipped the second review 50% of the time. the allegations are so serious, the fed will recommend the
4:04 am
government cut ties all together with that agency. alec baldwin issue ago profane twitter rant after he said baldwin's wife tweeted during james gandolfini's funeral. during the service, tweets were sent from her account, asking followers for wedding anniversary ideas. oh, my gosh. alec denied the allegation, saying they were sent from someone else. shortly after his account was taken down. the first thing he tweeted is this: i'm gonna find you, george sar, you little toxic blank and i'm going to blank you up. i can't imagine what that said. >> tucker: completely out of control. >> alisyn: he shouldn't operate any social media. >> tucker: kind of hilarious. >> steve: meanwhile, it appears it's out of our hands to get our hands on edward snowden. once again necessary a moscow airport and the stalemate continues. what's interesting is we heard
4:05 am
that wikileaks had apparently obtained a temporary safe conduct pass for him to go down there, but apparently there is a -- there is trouble with that and maybe authorized by someone who was not authorized. the united states is putting back door pressure on ecuador, reminding them, you get some financial aid from us. you better not take us. the president from ecuador said you're not going to tell us what to do, united states of america. there is the president of ecuador. he said we don't need your money and turn down trade benefits we give them to the tune of $23 million, although he kind of backed off that a little bit, even though that particular program was about to expire next month. good politics for him. >> tucker: it is one of the great unwritten stories of the past five years that latin america, under this president's watch, has become more disorganized, way more anti-america, a lot of leaders out there, with the exception of maybe colombia and more violent,
4:06 am
crazier, disorganized. it's really kind of collapsing. what is our plan for latin america? >> steve: we don't have a plan. >> alisyn: the "washington post" pointed out the irony or at least the contradiction that ecuador, while they're saying yes, we can grant political asylum, we don't need the united states. you can come here, edward snowden, at the same time, the government is pressing down on press freedom. the very story that we have all been privy to courtesy of this leak, they would not broadcast or print in ecuador. >> steve: wait until edward snowden finds out there is no wi-fi in quito. the president of the united states yesterday was meeting the press briefly. he was along with the president of one of the african countries he was visiting. he said he would not scramble the jets to go get edward snowden and then essentially, well, why don't you call putin? why don't you call the presidents of these other countries and put pressure on them? and then the president extraordinarily said this.
4:07 am
>> i have not called president shaif personally or president putin personally and the reason is because number one, i shouldn't have to. >> alisyn: what he means by that is that there are international protocols in place for when you have a suspected criminal that you want back from other countries. normally the presidents don't have to pick up the phone. but you have these treaties in place. you are supposed to respect the extradition treaty and the fact they're throughouting it and not doing so, they are making more of an international incident of it than it should be. >> steve: a couple of days ago, the administration was making a really big deal out of it. we really got to get this guy. john kerry on tuesday warned there would be consequences if they don't hand him over and the next day said, we're not look for confrontation. this administration has said because of the secrets this guy released, people will die. but now the president, i'm too
4:08 am
busy to pick up the phone. what he's saying is -- be a leader! pick up the phone. >> tucker: the 2008 campaign, his whole pitch was, remember in the debates, look, i'm not too busy or arrogant to call our enemies. personal diplomacy works. this president has been very quick to make tons of calls when he's actually interested in something. he called the plaintiffs in prop 8, as you remember in california. sandra fluke when rush limbaugh said something mean about her. collins when he came out as gay. i'm not clear why. he called the owner of the philadelphia eagles after michael vick got rehired after spending time in prison for torturing dogs to death. the president was so excited that he called the owner of the philadelphia eagles. but he won't call on this? >> alisyn: i think the problem is, and you can like this or not, is that what if he calls and then they won't turn him
4:09 am
over? there are these protocols and then if the president does make the call to these presidents and then they thumb their nose, then what? >> steve: it's smart politics for putin 'cause putin would love to say no. but at the same time, snowden is a distraction. the real issue to a lot of people is we have just discovered, thanks to mr. snowden, that our government is spying on us in a very large and profound way. >> tucker: thank you for saying that. that is the story. >> steve: that absolutely is the story. he's eventually going to be brought to justice, or wind up in a country. but now we all know what's going on with our national spying apparatus. meanwhile, back to snowden and the president not going after him in a more aggressive way, ollie north weighed in on "america live" yesterday and said this. >> this president and his description of a, quote, 29-year-old hacker, has set a new standard for imcompetence,
4:10 am
misfeesan, mal feesance that, is now at the level of an art form. it's obviously beneath him to engage in the tough work of diplomacy and things like that. that's clearly the message you got from both his body language today and the statement that he made. this is not a hacker. this is a person who has been at least in the extradition paperwork that we've all seen, he's been indicted or going to be indicted if they get their hands on him, for the crim espionage. that's not hacking. that's not break into somebody's bank account or using a false social security number. this is a person who could well have put the country at great risk by virtue of the information he's taken, stolen, by the way, and revealed to others. >> alisyn: we would love to hear from you, what you think the u.s. or the president should be doing now about edward snowden. >> steve: and to your point, absolutely, there are rules in place. we don't have an extradition thing with russia. but then again, the other countries don't always do the right thing. meanwhile, is the irs doing the right thing?
4:11 am
are they really trying to figure out the core of the scandal where that agency targeted conservatives? yesterday danny werfel, the acting commissioner, we want before the congress -- went before the congress yesterday and said so far, they have not found anybody responsible and nobody at the irs, to the best of his knowledge, has done anything wrong. >> alisyn: from there it turned moo an investigation. a very thorough investigation. >> tucker: kevin brady is a legislator from texas and went on this rant with werfel and said, quote, mr. werfel, this report is a sham! i would call it a white wash, but it's too thin and unsubstantial even to meet that definition! it's so bad, i won't even call it a white wash. >> alisyn: charles krauthammer had a great line that we're about to play and he used one of my favorite expressions. word salad. >> steve: delicious. >> this is stonewalling 101.
4:12 am
every tactic in the book is now being rolled out. look, the irs was caught red handed. scrutinizing, harassing, delaying, clearly one kind of group based on ideology. there is no way to explain it away. what do you do? werfel up there who speaks in word salad. i mean, the guy is a master. if he showed up in the e.r., he'd be considered either psychotic or disturbed. he speaks, but there is not any ounce of meaning coming out of it. but he's excellent in doing that. he's practiced. >> steve: which is curious because dr. charles krauthammer is a psychiatrist. he knows word salad when he sees it. >> alisyn: we're not getting a lot of answers right now from the irs. but we do have a few more hints as to exactly how they went about targeting applications for tax exempt status. basically all sorts of applications came in and we now know that they did give extra
4:13 am
scrutiny to all of the applications that had the word tea party in them. 100%. that equaled 292. they gave a little bit of extra scrutiny to some that had the word progressive. 30% of those, which equaled six. >> tucker: the democrats are looking at this saying, it really was a bipartisan thing. everybody kind much got knocked around. really? that's not true. for over two years action not a single tea party group got tax exempt status. not one. >> steve: we'll keep you posted. remember how fired up senator joe manchin was earlier this week about the president's climate change plan? >> i should not have to be sitting here as a u.s. senator fighting my own president and fighting my own government. that's ridiculous. >> steve: democratic congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz here to respond coming up next. >> alisyn: then who wears it better in a bikini? cindy crawford nearing 50 or kate upton in her 20s? how can you decide between these
4:14 am
two? i think -- >> tucker: we're going to help. >> alisyn: we have the stunning results. >> tucker: we do. look what mommy is having. mommy's having a french fry. yes she is, yes she is.

4:19 am
drive-by shooting that killed two men and they are now wond -- there was this past year and they're wondering if hernandez was somehow connected to it, and in fact, if that's the motive for odin lloyd, maybe he had some information about it. >> tucker: police knew that hernandez was in a bar with these two men when an argument broke out later that night they were both killed in -- at a red light. killed by someone in a car with massachusetts plates. late last night police returned back to the home of aaron hernandez. the former new england patriot. they're look at a possible connection between him and that drive-by shooting we just told but last year in boston. >> alisyn: it's a startling twist in the case because it's shocking enough that he is now the prime suspect and charged with odin lloyd's murder, but this one is just -- had would show an incredible history of violence. we do know odin lloyd murder was premeditated. the prosecutors say he actually got other guys from connecticut
4:20 am
to drive up and assist. at least that's the case they're building against him. >> tucker: it's sad, the details. lloyd apparently was shot first through his forearms. he was killed by five shots from a .45, big rounds shot in the chest on both sides. executed in a pretty awful way. >> steve: and hernandez apparently asked for bail again yesterday. he was denied. this morning police issuing an alert for a third suspect wanted in connection with the murder of odin lloyd. his name is earnest wallace and he's considered armed and dangerous. they believe he was one of the two men in the car with hernandez the night that mr. lloyd was shot and killed. the other person in the car, carlos ortiz, was arrested yesterday. >> alisyn: call your local authorities at 911 if you have any information on where he is. >> steve: coming up, it's a controversial story. human babies being created with dna from three people. that story straight ahead. >> alisyn: remember how fired up senator joe manchin was earlier this week about the president's climate change plan?

>> i should not have to be sitting here as a u.s. senator fighting my own president and fighting my own government. that's ridiculous. >> alisyn: up next, republican congresswoman and democratic congresswoman is here [ female announcer ] caltrate's doneven more to move us. because vitamin d3 helps bones absorb calcium, caltrate has the highest level of vitamin d3. more than any other brand, to help maximize calcium absorption. so caltrate women can move the world. when you experience something great, you want to share it.

4:25 am
west virginia and democratic congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz of florida. thank you for joining us. congresswoman wasserman schultz, you just saw senator manchin, it seems like he fits into the category that the president described as the flat earth society. is he a flat earther by the president's definition? >> no. i think that senator manchin perhaps hasn't had enough opportunity to talk to president obama and the senior members of the administration about the importance of focusing on his all of the above energy strategy. we certainly need to recognize that we have fossil fuels. we need to make sure that we are striking the right balance between the fossil fuels that we have, making sure that they aren't adding to our carbon foot print, making sure they're not continuing to harm sea level rise. tucker, we've had nine inches of sea level rise since the 1920s.
4:26 am
what that means is that communities like mine in south florida and coastal communities all across the country are facing dangerous sea level rise which ultimately will cause homes to be under water in a few short years. he's got to strike a balance between investing in renewable alternative energy, as well as our fossil fuels. >> tucker: so congresswoman capito, what kind of effect on your state, on west virginia, would this plan have if enacted? >> this would deal an unrecoverable blow to the state of west virginia. the president's picking winners and losers here. and i've implored the administration to look at what the intent of his administration is on the jobs and the economy region. west virginia would lose significantly here and he says all of the above, but then he goes out on tuesday and puts forth a policy that basically disenfranchises my entire state and i'm very concerned about this and i think that we're going to fight to keep these
4:27 am
west virginia jobs, keep the economy of west virginia, not even to mention the rise in power prices for our most vulnerable populations, our elderly and others who are going to bear the brunt of this expensive and really wrong-headed policy. >> tucker: congresswoman becauserman schultz, there is no scientific consensus on the fact that the president's plan would halt global warming. why -- there is no consensus on that. why is the president pretending otherwise? >> what the president is doing is saying one, that we need to recognize that fossil fuels are a finite source and shally moore capito and i have a special relationship at the risk of harming her by saying that and i have a lot of respect for her. but we have to recognize, there are -- we've heard for years that coal community representatives talk about the importance of clean coal technology and that that is possible and that we need to make those investments. you can't on the one hand say
4:28 am
that we can have clean coal, yet on the other hand, when we're trying to make sure we can get to that point that it's going to devastate the industry and eliminate jobs. and will create millions of jobs with the president's investment in alternative renewable energy, while also recognizing that we have to reduce the carbon foot print that is harming our environment and quite frankly, not just threatening jobs, but threatening entire communities. i will eventually represent orlando. if we don't do something about making sure we can reduce global warming and climate change, we have had the ten warmest years in human since 1998. that's causing things like super storm sandy, coastal flooding, heat waves, and those are very serious issues that need to be addressed. >> tucker: the question is whether we know what we can do about it and the answer is, of course -- >> we certainly do know. >> tucker: congresswoman capito, most coal in the world is burned
4:29 am
by the developing world, by china and india. is it unilateral disarmament to end it here. >> the exports are up. we have exported not only to china and india, we're export to go europe now. germany is buying west virginia coal. i think the problem here is coal provides over 30% of the base energy load in this country. renewables cannot get us there. so further investigation and research into clean coal and a better way to burn it, absolutely we need to go this direction. but i would invite my friend, debbie, to come to west virginia and have her learn about the economic effects of this policy to communities all across the state of west virginia. this is not just a -- we're going to harm a few people. this is an entire region of our country. we have 94% of power generation in our state is through coal. >> tucker: as vehemently as you
4:30 am
disagree on this subject, you are united in softball. tell us about your efforts to increase breast cancer awareness through softball. >> debbie is a breast cancer survivor and she started this five years ago and this is where we get together as republicans and democrats, members of congress, women members, and we try to beat the press, the common enemy, and so i'll let debbie talk about her dedication. that was me at third base right there and debbie played second. we had a great game wednesday night. >> shelly is my co- captain. we call her rocket arm because she's a phenomenal athlete and also an incredible teammate. but what we do is focus on raising awareness and raising funds for the young survival coalition. i was diagnosed with breast cancer when i was 41 and fortunately, caught my breast cancer early. but too many young women don't realize that they can and do get breast cancer and too many health care providers don't realize it and dismiss young women when they come in with a

with something called stucknet. our plan to disable centrifuges in iran. it was leaked to the "new york times" and then subject of a book by david sanger. and so there has been a lot of okays by republicans and others in the congress saying where is this all coming from? so now we see this allegation that general cartwright is being investigated. there is no proof of guilt. all we have is this bare allegation and story at this point. but the larger issue becomes if in fact it's true, why is he doing it? who is he doing it for? is there someone in the white house that had directed him to do this for the white house's own purpose? >> steve: at this point we don't know? >> yeah, because a lot of people said this makes the white house looks like it's strong. it looks like it's engaging in a foreign policy way, that it's standing up for america's rights. the problem is that the leak outed israeli intelligence officials who apparently went crazy about it, pushed back on

5:05 am
league. he was the future of the franchise. ironically, a college classmate at the university florida was tim tebow. ironic. why? because tim tebow the most religious straight shooting ball player in the league and aaron hernandez an ex hoodlum, you can take the kid out of the hood. you can't take the hood out of the kid. he was a bristol blood. he was a gang banger, pictures of himself holding a gun and so forth. he just never walked away from a beef. he's the kind of guy, not only is he charged with this brutal assassination of odin lloyd. why did he kill the 27-year-old allegedly because they had a nightclub beef. odin lloyd, a friend of aaron hernandez, was talking to some guys in the club that disrespected aaron hernandez previously. so for that reason, they think aaron hernandez with this bizarre gang ethos went and had odin lloyd kill him. now comes word that one of the
5:06 am
reasons lloyd perhaps was killed is he knew a lot about aaron hernandez' past, which included apparently or allegedly this drive-by shooting a year ago in boston that's still unsolved and the shooting in february down in florida where he shot a guy in the face and took out his eyeball. so aaron hernandez, all in all a kid, his dad died when he was 16. >> steve: he had a $40 million contract. >> $40 million, lived in a mansion h. a great fiance, a child. actually his fiance was the sister of odin lloyd's girlfriend. so they were all incestous. he's got the gang tattoos all over him. the bitter irony now, the patriots lose aaron hernandez, their future in many ways. now aaron hernandez could well be, as the "new york post" suggests, the first serial killer from the nfl. >> alisyn: not really a serial killer. a mass murderer of the he's not
5:07 am
ritualistic. >> steve: maybe. >> not particularly ritualistic. look at his motives, though. that's the thing. it wasn't like he was robbing. it wasn't even in the heat of passion. it wasn't a beef over a girlfriend. what it was is you have offended my macho pride. now i'm going to, you know, do this kind of jungle otho is -- ethos. how dare you disrespect me? so many youngsters from the inner city, from the ghetto go down that road where meaningless deaths just pile up like in chicago. this whole gang thing. i don't know why the league that recruits these kids from the inner city, how they don't have minders, how the agents who are collecting 10% of $40 million, where are they in all this? why aren't they mentoring these young men who are fatherless men, many of them. ray lewis and all the rest. michael vick. you can count them.

5:09 am
you put yourself -- i said this, here. let me full stuff. this is the opposite of the o. j. simpson case. in the o. j. simpson case, you had a black accused of killing two whites before an all black jury and it divided the nation racially. this is different. here you have a white, or hispanic, white in the minds of many, a white accused of killing a black with an all white essentially, all white jury. and i think -- i can't imagine how the five white ladies on that six-lady jury can look at rachel and identify with her in the way that i believe a lot of the supporters of trayvon martin are relating to her. her testimony was rambling in some ways, defiant and defensive. it was in some cases incoherent, but in other ways, it was sincere. it was earthy. there was credibility to a certain extent despite the fact that she's distorted and told
5:10 am
little lies along the way. how the bottom line impact of don west came off as a grumpy old man and annoying nag when he was cross-examining her, i think he went too far. but i still believe that how you see this case and how this case is developing depends on whether you're white or black. i hate to say that. but i think this case will be decided, as i said, the racial rorschach test, people will look at this. what would those five white ladies on the jury have done if they saw trayvon trayvon with the hoody on that rainy night, a dark stranger, never -- george zimmerman had never seen him in the hood before. the hood had been burglarized by similar teen-agers, similarly dressed from the neighboring community. you know, i just think that this will be -- will result in a very unsatisfactory decision regardless of where you stand and i believe george zimmerman will be acquitted. >> steve: and i believe you will be talking about both cases this weekend on your program. >> i certainly shall. >> steve: thank you very much.

prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives,

5:16 am
correspondent for the "new york times," david sanger, of about a year ago in the "new york times" where sanger disclosed that cartwright conceived and implemented a secret covert operation to introduce a computer virus into the computers that iran was using to run its nuclear centrifuges. this was successful in 2010 in disrupting the operations of about 1,000 of iran's centrifuges. but this was classified information apparently and the reporting by the "new york times" in identifying cartwright has made him the center of another leak investigation by the obama administration, which has already prosecuted or charged eight individuals in those kinds of investigations. more than all of the president's predecessors combined. >> steve: i notice you just mentioned another leak investigation, another near and dear to you, not only today are you on the news, but you're in the news because eric holder is going up to capitol hill. has eric holder, have you been in contact with him? have you talked to him about

[ laughter ] >> in a word, not to put too fine a point on it, no. >> steve: all right, fine. >> alisyn: maybe we'll have more information after he meets with lawmakers on capitol hill today. though it's behind closed doors. >> steve: not only are you a great reporter, but you've got some breaking news, fox news special coming up tonight, benghazi, the truth behind the smoke screen. right? >> yeah. this is going to be great and for all of our viewers who have been very concerned with benghazi and i hear about it every day on my twitter feed, you must watch this program tonight. we bring you up to date on the benghazi investigation. it's been months since we last gave you a comprehensive look. this last week, four more subpoenas were thrown against officials in the state department. may 8, we had a blockbuster hearing where whistle blowers smoke in dramatic terms about what actually happened on the night of the benghazi attacks. we have heard from whistle
5:18 am
blowers who told us about the so-called stand down orders that were supposedly issued by the military. and also for this special, we have the first ever interview with the film maker who made that anti-muslim film that was wrongly placed at the heart of the benghazi narrative by the obama administration and who himself was then placed at the heart of a jail cell in connection with the making of that film. so there is a lot of information here. new updates and i think everyone who is concerned with benghazi should see it. our own fox polling shows a majority of republicans, democrats and independents all believe that president obama should have done more by way of a military operation on the night of benghazi. this issue isn't going away. this special is important to watch. >> steve: the special, you can watch it tonight at 10:00 o'clock eastern time. james rosen, chief washington correspondent, thank you very much. >> alisyn: sounds great. we'll be watching. thank you. >> tucker: here is a question, where did more than 1,000 guns go? turns out the park police that had custody of those guns don't

quick friday morning headlines. new this morning, rescuers believe an american schooner that went missing in the waters between new zealand and australia sunk. but they haven't given up hope in finding survivors. six americans and a british man were onst known contact with the ship was june 4 during rough weather. and this woman donates a kidney to save the life of her boss. you know what? then she got fired. she says she got sick after the donation and her boss fired her for missing too many sick days. she's suing the old boss and the company she worked for. that's a quick look at the news. >> alisyn: let's talk about the other news this morning and that is where edward snowden is. you may know he's attempting to achieve political asylum in ecuador and ecuador's president this morning has weighed in and basically thumbed his nose at
5:24 am
the united states, saying that we have no clout over what his decision will be. >> tucker: as was pointed out to him, ecuador could lose the benefits of a free trade agreement. we don't care, said the newly installed left wing president of ecuador who by the way, like all leaders in latin america outside of almost colombia, very anti-american. they've become much more anti-american since president obama took over and kind of gone without much notice here in the united states. but it's a big deal. >> steve: it takes a backbone for the president of ecuador to say that because there are millions of dollars worth of american aid. he says, you know, you're not going to tell me what to do. he has back pedaled a little bit, but he looks strong and some have said our president doesn't look so strong because, as we heard the president say yesterday, you know, why isn't he calling putin, asking him for him back? the president has a really good reason. he shouldn't have to. here he is. >> i have not called president

right now. >> tucker: when he says, i'm not going to scramble jets for a 29-year-old hacker. two things, this kid was not a 29-year-old hacker. he was an employee of the u.s. government with a high level security clearance. he took it because he was entitled to it. second, it suggests the president just can't be bothered with small things like that. i want to remind you, he called sandra fluke after rush limbaugh. >> steve: we have a whole list. >> tucker: he called the owner of the philadelphia eagles after michael vick got out of prison for torturing dogs. what a creep. the president thought that was significant enough to call him. he called jason collins after he announced he was gay, like that was earth shattering news somehow. >> alisyn: he's trying not to turn this, or to down play it from being an international incident. it pretty much is an international incident, but he's trying to say, this is a law enforcement incident. let's handle it the way we do often when we have law enforcement incidents. he's trying to deescalate it. i don't know that it's successful, but that's what he's trying to do. >> steve: they've clearly

after about 12 beers, the cape is a good idea. >> alisyn: this guy -- >> steve: that was beautiful. congratulations to the big winner. >> alisyn: good. let's get to your headlines. very disturbing discovery. the u.s. park police have no idea where thousands of weapons are this morning. a report by the u.s. inspector general says the police lost track of 1400 hand guns, rifles and machine guns. they were supposed to be melted down. investigators found some of the missing weapons, so they are concerned some may end up in the wrong hands. similar problems were discovered in 2008 and 2009 and were never fixed. >> steve: meanwhile, he's accused of murdering his own girlfriend, but that's not stopping oscar pistorius from returning to the track. his family announcing the blade runner plans to hit the track for a few hours a week as a way to destress. but they insist he has no plans to compete in any sort of race.

[ cheering ] >> we were expecting some rain, but thankfully it's not raining. it's staying dry in new york city. mostly cloudy skies, we are expecting a shower or maybe a thorpe, especially as we head into this afternoon. that is the story pretty much for everyone along the east coast. as we head westbound, you mentioned the heat, that dog, basically trying to get into that little tiny bucket and we're looking at extreme heat out there with probably more dogs that will try to get water. you can see the high temperatures across parts of arizona and phoenix. 119 degrees.

5:37 am
neighborhood on the rise, you want to look for two key factors. one is new businesses coming in and crime going down. believe me, when a starbucks is coming into a neighborhood, it's a very good sign. they do a lot of research. they spend a lot of money deciding where to go, where the trends are going. piggy back right there on their research. then check the crime statistics. go to something like's crime watch and look and see downward trends for crime. you put the two of them together, a great cup of coffee and lower crime, you got a good neighborhood and a great place to shop for deals. >> alisyn: that is great advice because you always hear that you want to buy in an up and coming neighborhood, but you could never really tell what's an up and coming neighborhood. but you say those are the tell tale signs. let's talk about some of the houses that you fond. the first one in jackson, mississippi. >> yes. absolutely. this is one that's in club park. again, this is a neighborhood where we see a great starbucks

your mortgage payment on this, including your interest your insurance would be about 552 a month. >> alisyn: okay. meanwhile, tell us about charlotte, north carolina. >> another great neighborhood on the rise. this one is -- it's called eastfield. this price on this, 199. it's four bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths. it's a two story home. again, great curb appeal. updated kitchen. granite counter tops. beautiful bathrooms, center island fireplace. new paint with lighting, carpet. all brand-new. lots of built ins. this one will cost you 866 a month, plus a homeowners association fee, about 176. so all of it around 1,000 bucks a month. a great deal in a great neighborhood on the rise. >> alisyn: excellent. thanks so much. and for awful you who like more information on these homes, go to, click on the link for michael's blog.

my all american flag ad would simply require the u.s. government to purchase all flags with 100% american made materials and manufactured here in the united states. many of those flags drape the caskets of our veterans when we send them home. it's important to me and many of my colleagues that those flags be truly representative of america by being made in america. >> tucker: is there any reason that you're aware that the u.s. government would be buying american flags from china? >> the only reason is that the current law only requires 50% of the materials in flags purchased by the u.s. government to be made here in the united states. so i'm sure that that's one of the reasons why chinese flags are being purchased is because it's possible. my bill, which is a bipartisan bill that's already passed once in the house, once in the senate, but not in the same congress, and co-sponsored by congressman peter king of new
5:47 am
york would require 100% of those materials to be here in the united states. >> tucker: who is against this? >> i can't imagine anyone who would be against it. for me, it's a very personal issue. my father was an 18-year-old marine when he landed on iwo jima. the morning the flags were raised. and last year when i made a trip to iwo jima with 12 world war ii veterans who served there with my dad, i carried the flag that draped his casket up to the top and i know that the flag that he was buried in was made in the united states. i think other veterans want to make sure that that flag is a representative of our country and made by american workers. >> tucker: interesting. it's interesting you said this has already come up twice in two separate congresses, passed, but not yet law. of course, we're rooting for it and it looks like with no opposition, it will be. thank you for joining us this morning. i appreciate it. >> thanks for having me on the show.
