foxandfriends.com for after the show show. you saw clayton skittering around. >> no one is chasing you. >> i'm going into the basement. >> thanks for joining us. >> the after the show show. >> have a great day, everyone. enjoy your sunday. well, the great kate wait is on. the suspected due date, you know, of the royal heir, well, it's come and gone. despite a brief flurry of excitement yesterday thanks to those well-dressed imposters, this sunday morning there is still no sign the duchess of cam brid cambridge is any closer to giving birth. it's got to come sometime. good morning on sunday morning. welcome to america's news headquarters. i'm eric shawn. >> they have all the memorabilia
out and ready to be sold when the baby is born. i'm jamie colby. media and tourists alike are waiting outside at st. mary's hospital in london. it's nicknamed by some the limbo wing. we'll find out why. speculation now is turning to tuesday as a possibility after a report in the telegraph newspaper that kate middleton's mother told friends she thought her first grandchild would be a leo, the astrological side. martha mccallam joining us live. i assume the excitement is building at this point? >> reporter: it clearly is. a little of what's going on. the cover of "hello" magazine. royal birth details a to z. kate maternity fashions in full on that one. how about this one? this one has kate and william already planning their second baby if you can believe it. we'd like to get the first one born here behind me first if we could. this morning, meet the parents.
this one i love. this one, royal baby: the truth. the clean may not see the new arrival for up to two months. if the baby is not born before this coming friday the queen said she's out of here. she goes on her annual august vacation to scotland and she'd be happy to meet the baby when she gets back, jamie. >> a lot of speculation about how much kate and william will actually see the baby themselves. they say they want this baby to have a more normal life if that's possible. but there will be a whole staff of people that will be attending to this child. >> reporter: we'll see, jamie. they've done everything differently, pretty much. just think about the fact that kate and william have been spending time at her parents' house in buckleberry. after the baby's born, she's expected to go right back there probably for six weeks to have her mom help her with the baby. just like you or i would have done after we had our own children. i think they are clearly setting a very different tone. i think there will clearly be a
nanny on hand, especially when they're traveling. i think diana took it to sort of one point on the meter where she had a lot more face time and one on one time with her boys. and they loved adored her and spent a ton of time with her. i think you're going to see that go even more towards family time and hands-on time with this baby, jamie. >> is there a discussion there, martha, of diana and what she would be thinking or doing when this big day comes? >> reporter: you know, there's a lot on tv here about those years. about diana with her little boys. it does kind of break your heart when you see how much they adored her and how much she would have wanted to be part of this excitement and of her first grandchild being born. so there's a lot of discussion about it. but, you know, kate and diana are so different. diana was married when she was 19 years old. she had william when she was 20.
kate's going to be 31. by the time she will have her first baby, diana had an 11-year-old. she's such a more independent woman. she's college educated, kate middleton as she used to be called. she really is calling a lot of the shots here. william clearly backs her up on it in terms of her choices. i think diana is very much on people's minds. i look at william. they're glad to see him happy and starting his own family. i think there's a lot of joy over that after all the tragedy the family has gone through. clearly this is a very different generation, jamie. >> i remember we all stayed up all night long to watch the wedding of charles and diana. it was so exciting to see coverage, which you were part of when this couple got married. why do you think there's such a fascination outside of the uk about this baby being born? >> you know, i think it's a whole new moment for the royal family. you remember as well as i do, things were not looking good for
the royal family. their approval numbers were around 48% when princess diana was her royal highness. now they're closer to 70%. i think that kate has a lot to do with that. if william had chosen somebody that nobody liked, the chances that the interest would be a lot lower are huge. she's sort of a very quiet, steady, kind of character in the front of the royal family right now. i think they're very lucky to have her. i don't think we'd be looking at the covers of all these magazines if it weren't for her, frankly. her role is really not to be underestimated. i think as a royal couple they've gathered the attention and caught the hearts and minds of people all across the world. there is media here from all across the world, jamie. not only here outside the hospital, but they're also staked out all around buckingham palace as well right now just to see the easel go up that announces the sex and the weight of this child when it finally come. >> we'll be talking to you all day about what we can expect
when the big moment happens. i'm wearing pink because i'm voting girl. we'll see. keep us posted on any developments, martha. >> reporter: good for you. we'll see. >> be well. >> reporter: we sure will, jamie. bye-bye. coming up in our next hour we're going to actually chat as well hua roywith a royaler insi. a former chef joins us for what's being planned and what was done when william and his brother were born at the palace. >> want to find out more about that. great, jamie. see if the baby comes in the next couple hours. or not. >> fingers crossed. the wait for something else, though, appears finally to be over. the first direct talks between the israelis and the palestinians in three years. secretary of state john kerry announcing that a new round of mideast peace talks are expected to begin in washington this week. no direct talks have been held between the two parties since 2010. that, of course, left the prospects of middle east peace in limbo. the revelation comes after an
intense last minute round of negotiations over this weekend. mr. kerry met with palestinian president mahmoud abbas and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu over the past few days. he also talked to president obama on the phone. secretary kerry praising both abbas and netanyahu for making such talks possible despite some skepticism. >> we know the challenges require some very tough choices in the days ahead. today, however, i am hopeful. i'm hopeful because of the courageous leadership shown by president abbas and prime minister netanyahu. both of them have chosen to make difficult choices here. and both of them were instrumental in pushing in this direction. john balden is former u.s. ambassador to united nations, senior fellow at the american enterprise institute and fox news contributor who joins us every sunday at about this time. good morning, ambassador. >> good morning, eric. glad to be with you.
>> do you think this news of new talks starting perhaps tuesday or wednesday in washington is a major breakthrough or will likely lead to more disappointment? >> i think it's about like winning an intense game of cribbage. look, the prospects of any real progress between israeli and palestinian is effectively zero for a variety of political and strategic reasons we could spend a lot of time listing. nobody, i think, including secretary kerry is really optimistic about that. all he has succeeded in getting really, as we say in diplomacy, talks about talks. there comes with these talks a cost. there's a risk that further undermining the legitimacy, whatever little is left, of the palestinian authority. and there's an opportunity cost for the united states of spending as much time as the administration has this last six months on getting this meeting in washington to the detriment of everything else going on
around the world. particularly in the middle east. iran, syria, egypt, libya, you name it. the secretary of state's time is not unlimited. the president devotes precious little time to foreign policy as it is. so all the time spent in pursuing a matter that can come to no productive end is important time lost. >> well, if as you say it is potential window dressing, what happens after these talks when they come out with no announcement? >> well, that is one of the downsides. people say, what can you lose by talking? what's the harm? well, the harm is that if you invest a lot of the prestige and authority of the united states in getting something started, and then they break down after a few short meetings with no progress, that harm's the prestige of the united states. it reflects a lot of energy, a lot of time and effort that came to nothing. people say, well, if the united states can't accomplish something that it was prepared to devote that much energy to,
really has the united states begun to lose influence and power around the world? that's why i say it is not a cost free exercise to engage in a diplomatic path that is almost certain to lead to failure. >> there seems to be some confusion. because the reports say, of course, israelis have in the past not accepted the 67 lines. but apparently there was a letter that mr. kerry gave to mr. abbas saying that the israelis have agreed to talk about the 67 lines. where is the truth? how do they sort all this out? >> we obviously don't know all the behind the scenes conversations that secretary kerry had. people can often hear what they want to hear in such things. that illustrates another potential cost here of a loss of trust in the united states and its ability to be an honest broker between israel on the one hand and palestinians and arab states on the others. that's why i think before you get into a process like this with a minimal chance of success, losing sight of other
important threats in the region, all for the obsession that many people hold that the entire middle east would spring into sweetness and light if only you could solve the israel/palestinian problem, it's never been right. it's a fundamentally distorted view of what's gone wrong in the middle east. therefore even if you could fix it, it won't fundamentally change things throughout the region. >> prime minister netanyahu wants to make sure there is not a, quote, terrorist state on his borders. is that part of this equation and is that possible? >> i think it's central to the israeli view. the precise lines you draw on the map for what the palestinian state looks like if that's the eventual outcome are a lot less important than what's the nature of the state that lives behind those lines. i think netanyahu is playing a long game. i think he recognizes iran's nuclear weapons are the real threat to israel. he wants to say to president obama, look, i didn't think this would work but i did it for you. now if i need to take strong action, military action against
iran, please bear in mind that i was with you when you wanted help. >> as you say, iran is on the horizon. ambassador bolton, always good to see you. thank you for your analysis. see what comes this week and we'll probably be talking about it next sunday. thank you. >> thank you, eric. to politics now and obama care. after a vote this week showed that congressional democrats are not exactly in sync with the president right now, in fact, a number of democrats joined republicans in voting to delay two key components of the president's signature piece of legislation. bob cue sac is managing editor of "the hill." we always enjoy talking to you sunday mornings. thanks for being with us. >> good morning, jamie. >> let me start by asking you how close do president obama's original vision for obama care, both on the campaign trail and upon re-election, is obama care about these votes? >> well, as you know, jaime, the president made a lot of promises to try to get the votes in 2010.
this bill barely passed and the president said that you can keep your own doctor. he told union members they could keep their own plan. now those two things are very much in doubt. unions, even some unions are calling for at least a partial repeal of some of this law. democrats are clearly divided on those two votes. we talked to some democrats. a lot of democrats at no tididn to talk about why they voted with republicans. democrats on the hill are nervous about the imlemtation of obama care. one of the bills that was voted on, president obama has delayed the employer mandate. the bill that house republicans voted on delayed the employer mandate. the white house just said that was unnecessary. clearly democrats on capitol hill didn't agree with the president. they defected on that vote. >> it seems significant that the unions are calling for at least a partial repeal of obama care. they're a big voting block for the president and for democrats in general. what kind of impact will they
have on decision making both for the president to call for something else he wants or for congressional votes at this point? >> this is a problem for the white house. unions are upset because the administration as interpreted the law not to include collective bargaining, multiemployer benefits that unions already have. unions thought that when obama care passed, that there would be a different interpretation of that law. in politics, the party that is divided is losing on this issue. and a lot of these scandals, whether it's irs or the nsa, you know, obama care is likely going to be the number one issue if not number two maybe behind the economy in 2014 election. republicans think that obama care is going to help them in their quest to take back the senate. they need six seats to do it. it's probably a close call right now whether they get it. >> timing is interesting as well that it's been pushed off till after those elections. what do republicans want at this point now that these two provisions, at least, are in
flux or delayed? >> well, it's interesting that republicans who have traditionally been viewed as the pro-business party, they're going after the obama administration for bowing to special interests. that, okay, you've delayed the employer mandate. but the individual mandate is still going forward on january 1 of next year. so they're saying that's an uneven playing field and if you can delay it for businesses, why not delay it for individuals? remember, jamie, the agency that is enforcing an individual mandate is the irs. >> of course. in the meantime it does leave employers a little bit in flux of not knowing what these things will cost. we'll hope it won't affect the employment in this country. bob, great insight. thank you so much. have a great sunday. >> thanks, jamie. >> see you soon. eric? jamie, you don't have to tell you around the country man, oh, man, has it been hot. look at that. those red and oranges.
about to turn in some places a different color. hopefully the heat wave that's gripped the northeast especially for a week coming to an end. more on the forecast in the fox extreme weather center. rick, please say it's almost ending. >> it has. in fact, let's say it this way. the orange is not so bad. there's a lot of orange on the map. reds not as good. there's not as many reds on the map. that's the best way of saying it. currently temping looking better. 61 in minneapolis. you were so hot in minneapolis this week. same with chicago. now the cold front has moved through. take a look at what's going to happen throughout the day today. 10:00 right now. this is where we're sitting. we've had this front move through. this front becomes stationary. we still see impulses of energy move along that front and cause some showers from time to time. 10:00 here now. go through the afternoon. we'll warm it up here to the south of it. northern temperatures, everybody's still staying into the 80s. even 70s across far northern tiers. to the south of it a little more humid. we'll see a few of the thunderstorms pop up as the day
heats up. but in general this is certainly far improved from where we've been and we'll even drop things down temperaturewise a little bit more over the next couple of days. at least in the northern tier. here's the radar right now. biggest problem we have is here across southeastern areas of kansas in towards parts of oklahoma. very heavy rain has fallen. we're seeing a little bit of flooding. take a look at this, eric. this is really beneficial rain right now across areas of the southwest. arizona getting some good rain. a lot more moisture moving in where they've been fighting that big fire around the idyllwild area of california. certainly beneficial for the firefighters out there as well. >> that's good, rick. maybe to put it in perspective, even though it's hot, in 1896, 1,800 people died in a heat wave that went on for ten days. we're going to tell you about a potential medical breakthrough coming up that could mean the end of down's syndrome. the doctors are here to explain in "sunday house call" just ten
minutes away. a lot more medical information to help u.s. get a bit healthier. sad news. a tornado tore through a college campus causing serious damage. can you imagine what would happen if that hit your son or daughter's dorm? authorities are out there. we'll tell you about the very latest coming up. so then the little tiny chipmunks go all the way up... ♪ [ female announcer ] when your swapportunity comes, take it. ♪ what? what? what?

the reverend jesse jackson is lashing out at the florida response to the verdict of george zimmerman, not guilty verdict in the trayvon martin case. reverend jackson is calling for an economic boycott of florida until that stand your ground laws are repealed. today on fox news sunday rising conservative voice dr. ben carson, he thinks those kind of statements just don't help. >> we need to tone down this rhetoric. those of us in leadership positions need to be looking for things that we can take out of this situation that will be helpful. not things that inflame the situation. that doesn't mean that we shouldn't look carefully at all of our laws. we shouldn't look carefully at this verdict and at this outcome, make sure that everything has been done correctly, the is have been dotted, ts have been crossed. but let's tone down the rhetoric
and realize we the people are thot each other's enemies. >> joining us now anchor of fox news sunday, chris wallace. good morning, chris. >> good morning to you, eric. >> this opened up a national conversation. we saw president obama, his address in the most personal terms friday. people talking about racism, the issue of black on black crime, violence in chicago, of course, what happened here with the protests over the weekend. do you think there are efforts now to repeal stand your ground as jesse jackson is calling for? can that happen in states or potentially in congress? >> well, i don't think it can happen in congress because these are state laws. it's not a federal law. in the case of florida, i know that -- that governor rick scott met with protesters this weekend who were demanding that in tallahassee. he said no. he doesn't intend to do that. he's surgeonly n lcertainly notl a special session of the florida state legislature which is out of session right now to do it. he said this all came about
because of a special commission back in 2005 that examined stand your ground. it should also be pointed out in the case of stand your ground that while blacks represent only about 15%, 16% of the population in florida, they have filed fully one-third of the claims for stand your ground in murder cases that they were involved in. much more than their proportion of the population. this isn't something that's being used by whites to kill blacks. it's being used, in fact, more by -- more often by blacks than whites. >> carson who has been at john hopkins in baltimore, what is his sense of that and where this country is going on this topic? >> we talked to him and we also talked to donna edwards who's a democratic congresswoman from maryland. you know, look, they both think that there is an issue with profiling. congresswoman edwards talked about her son is in his 20s. all the stories that he told about the times that he's been followed down the street or heard the door of a car click
when he walks by and how much he felt empowered in a sense by the president giving voice to the concerns that he's felt as a black man. the one difference i would say is that when it comes to the civil rights leaders, while she wasn't signing on and certainly wasn't signing on, congresswoman edwards, to jesse jackson's call for an economic boycott. she said i've got to look at that. i'm not sure if i support that or not. dr. carson was much more critical with what he said of civil rights leaders throwing hand grenades and sewing division, playing on the divide amongst us rather than what we have in common. >> chris, timely and important conversation. we look forward to seeing both sides on fox news sunday later on today. for more of chris's exclusive interviews with both dr. ben carson and congresswoman donna edwards, member of congressional black caucus, tune into fox news sunday later. also discussing detroit's historic bankruptcy filing.
man, oh, man. what is going on in motor city? what is their future? the city's emergency manager, kevyn orr is a guest on fox news sunday, 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. here on the fox news channel and on your local fox station where you live. we're also pretty worried about the extreme heat of this summer. it can be uncomfortable, of course. it can also cause serious health problem. we want to give you some details on that. also how you can stay safe. "sunday house call" coming up straight ahead. as we mentioned, as you know, president obama made his feelings know about the george zimmerman verdict, the murder trial and his impassioned talk on friday. what did the president say? what does it mean and where do we go from here? we will have a fair and balanced debate from both sides, ahead. >> when trayvon martin was first shot, i said that this could have been my son. another way of saying that is, that trayvon martin could have
been me. 35 years ago. huh...anybody? julie! hey...guess what day it is?? ah come on, i know you can hear me. mike mike mike mike mike... what day is it mike? ha ha ha ha ha ha! leslie, guess what today is? it's hump day. whoot whoot! ronny, how happy are folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico? i'd say happier than a camel on wednesday. hump day!!! yay!! get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. it's delicious. so now we've turned her toffee into a business. my goal was to take an idea and make it happen. i'm janet long and i formed my toffee company through legalzoom. never really thought i would make money doing what i love.
