3:05 pm
disagreement amoung political strategists about whether this kind of speech helps heal racial divisions or makes them more pronounced. >> i think it is a great opportunity to talk about race relations in this country. it is not that the president was making race an issue. race is an issue and he was using his own experiences to illustrate that and how we move america forward. >> the president should never have injected himself to begin with. this had nothing to do with race. the president knows there are demonstrations happening this weekend. and if anything the president incited -- incited any violence that takes place over this weekend by his comments that race was somehow involved. >> it is unclear what the obama administration will do now regarding the verdict, if anything. the president said yesterday that the jury had spoken and, quote, that's how our system works. juliette? >> molly, thank you. coming up later in this hour we will get historical context on president obama's comments. and we will look at how other
3:06 pm
leaders handled similar situations in the past and don't forget to tune into fox news sunday. tomorrow dr. ben carson and congresswoman donna edwards will join chris wallace for an exclusive interview about this case. that's tomorrow only on the fox newschannel. check your local listings for times. oh boy, some much needed relief coming to millions of people baking. when i say baking i mean baking in the northeast. after six straight days of temperatures soaring into the 90s, the mercury is dropping a few degrees today as a cold front slides through. >> really? >> and now the region is bracing for severe storms. we go live to the fox news weather center. first, i know the storms, that could be serious, but a cold front? is that stretching it? >> no, it is going to be a cold front. it is a serious one that will drop temperatures in some cases 20 degrees. that's the good news. the bad news is that we need
3:07 pm
to get through some severe weather as well. i just want to point out there is a severe thunderstorm watch. this is another batch of storms across the northern and central plains we will keep our eye on for the potential of large hail and damaging winds and even isolated tornadoes. and then there is the cold front that is marching across the ohio river valley and the northeast and mid-atlantic. ahead of that front that's where the cells are develop expght potential for hail and damaging winds. isolated tornadoes, not an outbreak here. but we could see some isolated tornadoes. we have all of that warm, unstable air ahead of this cold front. look at the current temperatures. this tells the story. 91 in new york. 193 in -- 78 in buffalo. that cold front is significant for the summertime. looking at your heat index. it is still warm across the i-95 corridor. feels like 95 in boston and close to 100 in dc. it is on the way. it will bring much relief to areas that have been sweltering over the last week.
3:08 pm
looking at the next 48 hours, watch this cold front on the move. 68 in detroit overnight tonight. 79 in new york. and then it continues to move southward. 82 in new york. 79 in pittsburgh. it will hang around across the mid-atlantic. you will see that cooler and dryer air mass for the northeast for much of the workweek. that is great news. ahead of the front, still heat advisories in affect. be careful if you are outside. lots of hydration of course. try to be indoors with the little ones and check on the elderly. we are calling this sweet heat relief across the mid-atlantic and northeast where the temperatures will be in the 80s and 70s for boston heading into sunday. this is great news fortunately. unfortunately we will deal with the severe threat throughout the afternoon and in the evening. again the potential for hail, damaging winds, isolated tornadoes as well. we will keep you posted, but of course, ladies, i am so happy to deliver some good news. it has been a long week.
3:09 pm
>> we appreciate that, i tell you what. what was that you said ago? the sweet heat relief? >> the sweet heat relief, girl friend. >> all right, i will do it too. >> all right. as we all know we have been following this story throughout the afternoon and helen thomas who is a trail blazing journalist and long-time white house reporter who has died at the age of 92. she covered 10 presidents over her career and left a major impact. president obama releasing a statement today saying helen was a true pioneer, opening doors and breaking down barriers for generations of women in journalism. she covered every white house since president kennedy's, and during that time she never failed to keep presidents, myself included, on their toes. absolutely no doubt about thomas speaking her mind at news conferences. take a look at this. >> people call for openness and transparency. >> let's have this discussion at the conclusion of the town hall meeting. how about that? >> no, no, no.
3:10 pm
we are having it now. >> why do we have to have it now? >> it is a way of controlling the press. >> helen, i find it unfortunate that you use your front row position bestowed upon you by your colleagues to make such statements. >> you are con testimony few us with instead of contemptible. you are familiar with that, helen. >> one of the press secretaries grilled by helen is on the phone. dana pa ri no is the co-host on "the five." sorry i couldn't be there, but i am honored to talk about my time . interesting the clip you played of me, juliette, that was the only day i ever actually lost my temper with helen. that was actually me losing my temper. >> from what you can hear from other white house correspondents, they covered it during helen thomas' time, you were patient with her. she was the type if she went after a president and press
3:11 pm
secretary, she really pushed and pushed until she got her answers. it was a love-hate relationship with her. is that the case? >> yes expirks enjoyed my time as press secretary for so many reasons. one was the chance to have the grace and dignity to handle questions like the ones she would throw at you. oftentimes she would [inaudible] real presidents and difficult for somebody to keep their cool. look at her entire life. her course of work is absolutely amazing. there were a lot of disagreements with her over the years. and especially as her opinions developed or she became more vocal in expressing her opinions , particularly on israel, a lot of people disagreed. i can't tell you what was in her heart, but i know what is in mine. i will tell you she was one of the first people to ever invite me to one of the big dinners when i was just a
3:12 pm
junior deputy press secretary. she gave me encouragement. she told me she thought i was trustworthy. and i worked hard not to lose that trust. she earned that seat in the briefing room. again, a lot of disagreements about some of the things she said, but over time, i think you look at the course of her life's work and she is an amazing person. i had just thought of her the other day and wondered how she was doing. my husband and i used to go to dinner with her at mama iesha's and she would charm us for hours. >> you talk about and everybody talks about how she is an iconic figure, especially for women in journalism. we have a few seconds. give us a little summary about what she means for women in journalism? what is her legacy? what is she going to be remembered for the most? >> well, most people are remembered for the newspaper they worked for. the new york times. she actually had -- she was the only woman -- the only person ever to get their own name on a seat in the briefing
3:13 pm
room. again, i think she earned that. when she retired it was the right time for her to do so. going back, she started a newspaper. she was making $6 a week. she worked her way up. i think she should all keep her life's work, the entirety, in mind. >> she said she was tired of covering the presidents' wives' hair do's and she changed that track for herself. helen thomas dies at the age of 92. dana, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> indeed. it was one year ago today a gunman carried out a horrific shooting rampage forever changing one community. today a somber ceremony remembering the victims who died at a colorado movie theater. >> and we will take a look at what other countries think of the rivalry between the u.s. and china. the surprising results from some brand-new polls just ahead. >> plus, the first child of prince william and the duchess of cambridge. >> when is it going to
3:14 pm
happen? >> expected to arrive any day now, any moment now. the continuing coverage of the royal baby watch. that's coming up next. ♪

3:19 pm
polls, 60% of those surveyed say america's global imagery mains more positive than china's. but only41% now say the u.s. is the world's leading economic power. that number fell 6% in just five years. 34% say china is the super power. joining us now, president of capital management for an in depth analysis. good to see you, gary. >> thanks for having me. >> i want to talk about this first. how did we get to this place? what has been happening? it is a longtime in the making. tell may what you think -- tell me what you think china has been doing in the last twenty years to get to this new standing? and what is it that the u.s. is not doing? >> i think a couple things. number one in 2008 our banks and the whole blowup here really affected things around the globe. when these polls come out people are thinking about that. china has been growing strong,
3:20 pm
but they are smaller than us. they have been growing 7% a year and that's a big number. you combine those two together -- and the polls kind of get together. >> what was the last thing you said? the what? >> the polls come together uh lo lot closer when you put those together. >> what do you think in general or maybe specifically, gary, the u.s. needs to do to strengthen our economy at home? >> well, first off i still think we are the greatest country in the world. we have more nobel prize winners than the countries around the globe. the entrepreneurialism. country is never going south. it will always go north. that's always going to be around. i think the biggest concern -- >> gary let me jump in before you get to your punch line. we are popping up here and showing -- you are mentioning nobel peace prize winners. since 1901, 125 total, the u.s. has 29 and where is china? and one. >> bingo.
3:21 pm
look, human rights, freedom, the lit knee of things why we have a much better country and growing forward. we have to realize that china, some of the numbers are a little screwy. they announce certain numbers. i am not so sure they are that big. 24r* are cities that have been built by the chinese government with no people in it. we are not talking buildings. it is cities. >> ghost towns. if you look at the pictures and the photos, they are beautiful communities, highrises and pristine. nobody is there. >> bingo. the big thing i am concerned about going forward, one number. 17 trillion. we have a massive amount of debt. if there is anything that has destroyed countries time and time again it is out of control debt, out of control yearly deficit. the good news is our deficits are starting to come down on a yearly basis. but we have to get better or else. what typically happens is interest rates will start sky
3:22 pm
rocketing and economies go south and then trouble lies ahead. >> gary, let me see if i can get you to clarify something. there is a perception that china owns so much of the u.s. debt that we have no more leverage over china. what is your take on that? >> well, as long as we are able to pay the interest on that debt we are in good shape. but i have to tell you right now the big buyer of our debt is our own federal reserve. they bought about 70% of our treasury bonds over the last year. that needs to change also. no doubt we are a little beholden to them, and that's why i don't think our government yelling and screaming about them of hacking our computers and things like that. hopefully that will change down the road. if our deficits come down, that will change. >> where does the responsibility lie on congress? all levels of the -- of our great system there in dc, they have to come together because at the end of the day this is where the gridlock and the
3:23 pm
infighting can hurt us as a country as we try to maintain our position as number one in the world in terms of economic power and just being great all across the board. >> well i have had one simple line. if they don't stop the markets are going to eventually stop them. back in 2008 the markets stopped and all of the banks and the brokerages from leveraging the mortgage security is 30-1. if we keep growing the debt eventually the market will yell and scream and fight back. we could have a 1987 again if they don't get their act together. even though we hear of washington not getting their act together. if deficits continue to come down and we get that in order we could be off to the races. the key about this country is the people. not necessarily the government. it is great people. they are creating new businesses on a daily basis. that's what drives this country. i think we will continue for a long time. >> that's a good -- we are the best. we will continue.
3:24 pm
definitely we have to not ignore some of these signs out there. gary, thank you very much for your perspective. >> my pleasure. thank you. >> arthel, i am obsessed with the baby countdown. >> who isn't? >> the guys are like, why do you care about this stuff? it is fascinating to me. the duchess of cambridge who has spent the last few weeks at her parents' estate is now back in london to be closer to the hospital where she and prince william will welcome their first child and future heir to the british thrown. throne. >> we are relieved by the reports that the duchess of cambridge is now back in london. she left her parents' home because the longer she spent out there, the greater was the likelihood she might end up having to activate a contingency plan to give birth in redding. it wouldn't be here at saint mary's hospital in london where we all very much want to greet her. the monotony experienced by the press whose patience needs
3:25 pm
to be said has gone past fullterm was broken briefly by the arrival of some cheeky imposters yesterday. they arrived at the evening hour pulled up with drivers and earpieces and hurried in like a harried couple and the cameras moved after them like a school of fish and turned around to reveal themselves as a publicity stunt. in the meantime people were certain that kate will make a great mother given the interest she has shown in children and vulnerable children. she has been known in the past couple years to pay personal attention to the sick children she has met and prince william has done the same. he, by the way, has been said to want to be in the delivery room when his wife goes through labor. prince charles was there when princess diana gave birth, but prince philip was famously playing squash when charles was born. and then the store goes that he famous lehigh taled it back -- famously high taled it back to get her flowers and champagne. it will be the queen and
3:26 pm
prince philip's third great grandchild and they will be expecting a fourth great grandchild in the new year. a bit of news that was lost in the shuffle. the famous equestrian talent who is princess anne's daughter announced she too is pregnant. >> babies everywhere. >> there is something in the water over there. >> amy kellogg, thank you very much. >> everyone loves kate. she is so beautiful and classy and classic. >> she is elegant, but she is the commoner. she is the ultimate fairy tale. she landed herself a prince. >> she surely did. coming up, a landmark piece of legislation turns three years old tomorrow as lawmakers look to bring so-called too big to fail financial institutions down to size. is this a good idea? our panel debates next. >> and firecrews going all out to gain ground on a raging wildfire in the mountains of southern california. will is there with a preview.
3:27 pm
will? >> hi, juliette. this fire has burned a number of homes and buildings just like this completely to the ground. we'll tell you why some residents say this could have been much worse. we'll have that story coming up after the break.
3:28 pm
3:29 pm
3:30 pm
3:31 pm
a fox news alert. firefighters gaining ground on a massive wildfire raging in the mountains near palm springs, california. thanks to a drop in temperatures , it is helping them overnight, but the threat of thunderstorms could be a big help or pose serious problems. will carr is in near hemet,
3:32 pm
california. will? >> right now firefighters are cautiously optimistic. i am standing near a maintenance shed where a local summer camp used to be. look at this tractor and you can see the fire ran through here and literally burned the tires off the tractor and pretty much destroyed the maintenance shed. if you come across, this is actually a street. there was another maintenance shed across the street and you can see the fire gutted that shed as well. there is a bunch of rubble and debris there. look into the distance. it is about 50 yards from us and it was a home untouched. we have seen a lot of this to the point that a lot of residents are telling us that it could have been much worse. a short time ago congressman raul ruiz actually toured this area. a half dozen homes have burned along with several structures, and congressman ruiz says the damage is bad, but without the firefighters putting their lives on the line more homes and more buildings could have been lost.
3:33 pm
>> we are in a state of emergency. it could have been much, much worse. there was a lot of devastation , but the work that they did on the ground prevented much more devastation from happening. >> right now firefighters tell us they are pretty confident with where things stand. they say palm springs is not in any danger. they have about 25% containment on this fire, and they tell us that no homes or communities are threatened which is good news for residents. evacuated residents are hoping to get back in here as soon as possible. the bad news is we just found out that the fire so far is coming with a $12 million price tag. that could go up in the coming days. the congressman tells us that right now state funds have been made available to help out with that. if things get any worse he will consider asking for federal funds.thel? >> will carr, thank you very much. 6:33 east coast time. tomorrow marks three years since the sweeping financial reform act that was among
3:34 pm
other things supposed to help put an end to too big to fail banks. but three years later the big banks are even bigger. one person says 30% perhaps. a handful of senators from both parties are looking for an alternative by bringing back regulations from the 1930s that were killed off during the clinton administration in 1999. here is democratic senator elizabeth warren from massachusetts. >> the big banks, the big four , are 30% bigger than they were in 2008. what this is about is to say, you know, we have to have that wall in place again. go take your risks. go and do what you want to do on the investment side. the banking side needs to stay boring. those insured deposits need to stay off limits for the risk takers. >> but this law, this fire wall she is talking about will likely be an uphill battle. a fox news contributor is joining us, the director of
3:35 pm
freedom works and author of "backlash." the former chief of staff to joe mansion from west virginia. thanks very much for joining us on a saturday. we appreciate it. >> hi, juliette. >> welcome. >> let's talk about this act. it was enacted in 1933 and it was repealed in 1999. what it essentially does is separates commercial banking from investment banking. in other words, just the regular checking and that type of stuff separated from all of the hedge fund-type activity. this was something that was repealed again in 1999. there were a lot of folks that say let's bring it back including senator john mccain, of course a republican, and elizabeth warren as you saw a democrat. it has bipartisan support. it has been introduced last week. what do you think about this? >> i think this is a no go. elizabeth warren and john mccain are just wrong. when you think about it, the 2008 banking crisis was a crisis that was created because of big government.
3:36 pm
in 1977 we had the community reinvestment act that mandated banks to provide mortgages to individuals who really could not afford these mortgages. then you had banks that were really gambling on the mortgages like beir stern and lehman who went under and they gambled and that was part of the mortgage crisis we experienced. >> i want to play you a sound byte. this is an excerpt of an interview that peter barnes from fox news channel did with elizabeth warren. it goes into what you were just talking about. let's play the sound byte. >> you are already hearing from critics who said had it been in place it would not have prevented the financial crisis. the companies that failed was fannie mae, freddy mac, lehman brothers, beir stern, countrywide. >> the companies we bailed out were citi bank, bank of america, wells fargo. they got the big tarp money.
3:37 pm
>> chris, i will bring you in in a moment. w45 is your reaction -- what is your reaction to the senator had to say? >> look at jp morgan chase. they were forced to take the money because the government said so. elizabeth warren and john mccain are wrong on this. >> chris, is it time to bring it back? >> it is definitely time to make sure we don't have another financial crisis. the reality of the situation was, yes, you had bad mortgages and bad loans, but you also have a banking system that is incredibly interdependent. when you have a liquidity crisis, it is not just affecting one institution. it affects all. then you add in this complex, derivative type of transaction that is very difficult to manage. you don't necessarily know what the risk is. when you have a situation as we do now where the banks are even bigger than they were,
3:38 pm
the question is what can you do to mitigate the risk? if you have another financial crisis here is the cruel reality, i'm not sure the federal government or anybody will be big enough to bail them out. the risk has to be mitigated. the question is what is the right approach? it may or not be reality. the reality is it is difficult to pass. >> we should not be bailing out banks. let the free market decide which banks stand and which fall down. continental international bank fell, it went down. glass steigle was in affect when it wept under. that is not an investment bank. it was a commercial bank. that was a bank that did not survive under glass steigle. >> the interesting thing for a lot of folks is when they hear this they think bipartisan. you have both sides agreeing on something. when does that ever happen? it seems like the biggest hurdle will be the banking lobbies themselves. to be yously bankers -- obviously the bankers say it
3:39 pm
is effective and it works. it gives consumers access. all of their banking is in one place. that's what the banking lobbies say. one banker says the bigger banks equal bigger competition. your final words on that? let's start with you. >> let the free market decide. if you look at dodd frank it is 30% of the rule that was in place. it is three years old now. 14,000 pages of rules. are you kidding me? 400 rules and 14,000 pages. think about the resources that have been involved in dodd frank. that's a failure as well. >> chris, this may be symbolic. this is what the conventional wisdom of those watching this unfold. it may be a symbolic effort to encourage or start up the i'm -- the i'm toc -- impetus of debate. thoughts? >> i think are you right. you will have an on going discussion about this because contrary to the mythology, if you don't have some type of role where the government is going in and making sure that
3:40 pm
these institutions are not being careless, you can't just sit there and let the free market decide. if we had let that happen the entire economic system were to collapse. >> the free market would decide. if you go back to -- >> let him finish. >> listen, it is a romantic notion that somehow the free market is going to decide. but if that would have happened, the entire u.s. economy would have collapsed. that is what i think good people on both the democrat and republican side are trying to figure out. whether this is the right approach, probably too early to tell. >> on that note we have to wrap it up. thank you for joining us on saturday. enjoy the rest of your day. >> thank you. >> juliette, president obama is offering deeply personal and dramatic comments about the george zimmerman trial yesterday. the growing debate regarding the president's remarks, we will discuss with susan estridge coming up.
3:41 pm
3:42 pm
... ... ... goodnight.

3:45 pm
president obama delivering dramatic remashes about the death of trayvon martin. in a stunning turn yesterday the president made a surprise appearance in the white house press briefing room. he delivered some lengthy and candid comments about the case in which he argues that 35 years ago he could have been trayvon. susan estridge, fox news contributor and a professor of law and science at the university of southern southern california joins us now. hi, susan. first of all tell me what about those remarks struck you most? >> i just thought it was a very important moment, art. we have an african-american president in this country. we have an african-american attorney general. i can't help but think back to 21 years ago here in los angeles when we had a very unpopular verdict and the city exploded. i think we are a different country now. i think president obama coming out and talking about his own experiences underscores the fact that we are a different country.
3:46 pm
>> do you feel that's what the president perhaps was trying to do? put a face on that and saying this could have been me. not necessarily to fan the flames of racism, but to say to the american people, look, this could have been me. i'm not sure what is it you think the president was saying, and how do you think the general american ear, if you will heard -- what do you think they heard the president say? >> well, i hope what they heard the president say is that he understands -- he understood the frustration and anger and maybe disbelief of many people, many in the african-american community that this young man could be killed with his skittles in his pocket. so while he on one hand connected with that and i think identified with that, at the same time he also said to the politicians basically, keep out of this. don't try to make hey here.
3:47 pm
i think he was talking to all-americans saying, look, this could have been me. this is a terrible tragedy. that doesn't mean there will be a civil rights case. i don't think there is. and it doesn't mean that we are a racist country. we have real issues to deal with here including the correlation between race and crime. >> one other thing the president touched on as well is the stand your ground laws. let's listen to that and talk about it on the other side. >> i know there has been commentary about the fact that the stand your ground laws in florida were not used as a defense in the case. on the other happened if we are sending a -- on the other hand if we are sending a message as a society to our communities that someone who is armed potentially has the right to use those firearms even if there is a way for them to exit from a situation, is that really going to be contributing to the kind of peace and security and order
3:48 pm
that we would like to see? >> so again, susan, the president is saying, listen, the stand your ground law was not part of the defense in trayvon martin -- in the george zimmerman case. what he did seem to do is let's use the spotlight that is on the laws and perhaps he is suggesting, i think, that perhaps there should be a different look at the laws. do you think there is a possibility that those laws will be reviewed and perhaps rewritten in the end? >> they may be. there is so much confusion, art. i am so glad you pointed out what the president did and did not say. his remarks lead to all of this confusion that somehow the president had, you know, gotten the case wrong or maybe this really was the stand your ground law case. i am no fan of stand your ground laws. i am one of those old-fashioned criminal law professor types who actually believe that short of being in your own home, if there is a way that you can not use deadly force and protect yourself and others, that's

always the best solution. but i would hope at least that what we really need to take a look at here is not to stand your ground -- not just stand your ground laws, but why it is so many people, as the president said, do click their doors when they see an african-american young man cross the street. i think the sad truth is the reason they do that, the reason they do lock their doors is because there is a very real correlation between youth and race and crime in this country. if we don't do something about that, we can all be pius as long as we want, but at the end of the day young black men will be treated differently and that's not fair and it is not right. >> susan, that, i think, is what the president is -- if i can kind of get into his head for a second and what i took from his remarks is he is hoping that this is not just a discussion that stops, and it has to be a discussion not just in the white community, if you will, not to break it down through color lines, but it has to be something the african-american community has to take a serious look at too

across the board in terms of why these young black men seem to be so disenfranchised. susan, i have to go. i wish i had more time. >> thank you, art. >> back in a moment.
