83% of those surveyed gave congress thumbs down in the "wall street journal" poll. >> thanks for joining us. "fox & friends" starts now. have a wonderful day. ♪ >> we made it to the middle of the week. it is wednesday, july 24. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing part of your day with us. this morning evidence that could have blown the lid off the i.r.s. scandal. vanishes into thin air? what happened to the records that showed initials snooped on christine o'donnell's records. officials say we lost them. will americans buy that excuse? >>steve: busted sending smut again. busted lying again. now he -- the guy with no shirt on -- wants your forgiveness again. can voters ever believe anything anthony weiner has to say? >>brian: is this a repeat from last year?
3:01 am
>>steve: i wish it were but it's not. >>brian: excuse me, gretchen. >>gretchen: that guy's head was in his mouth. sorry. >>brian: when crocks attack, gretchen screamed about it -- a crocodile bites down on a trainer's head in front of a horrified tourist. queue him. action. >> by proclamation of the royal family, "fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ "fox & friends" >>steve: how great is that? from 48th and 6th avenue. we saw the town crier announcing the birth of the little baby over in london and we said that town crier was great. we've got to get us one. there's ours. good morning, sir. >>gretchen: i have a
3:02 am
sneaking suspicion that our town crier was george washington a few weeks ago. he's cracking up. >>brian: how big is that page for just one line? that's a huge -- anything else on there? >>steve: it's the first time we've ever had the cold open on a scroll. >>gretchen: we all started in the news business; we were using scrolls. at least i was using a type writer for the first year. here we are. we're pretending like we've got the royal family. >>steve: we have our own town crier because today is a big day. there's the baby, the prince of wales. >>brian: he has something else to say. >>steve: okay. >>steve: o yea! a proclamation on the 27th of july in the year of our lord 2013, we welcome a future king, the
3:03 am
first-born of their royal high necessaries, the -- royal highness, the dutschke and duchess of cambridge, may he be happy and glorious one day to reign over us. god save the queen! >>gretchen: a prognosticator too. >>brian: you put the camera on him long enough, he'll read something. >>steve: i like the fact that the people of new york city walking by are like i see that all the time. we've got our own town crier today. >>gretchen: we'll tell you the name prediction. we'll tell you what people are saying about the name because that's still the unknown in that whole equation. we have to do some headlines. while you were sleeping a fire breaks out in the gulf of mexico off the coast of l.a. the coast -- coast of louisiana. coast guard having trouble putting out the fire.
3:04 am
it comes after workers had to be evacuated because a well blew up. today aaron hernandez will be back in courts. prosecutors reportedly presenting evidence to a grand jury for a 2012 double homicide. police believe hernandez was with the victims the night of the murders at a club. an saoefrb -- s.u.v. connected to the case was taken from the home of hernandez' uncle. today's hearing is a probable cause hearing in the case of odin lloyd. also happening today, the house is going to vote on defunding the n.s.a. to stop its spying on americans. the amendments are part of a defense spending bill. the effort to halt the spying bringing together democrats and republicans. >> the debate really comes down to whether we want to allow the n.s.a. to collect these records or whether we want to deny them the funding to do so. >> this means the
3:05 am
government's authority to collect information on law-abiding americans is essentially limitless. >>gretchen: overnight we learned edward snowden, the man who leaked how widespread the spying is could be granted temporary asylum today in russia, according to his lawyers this. prince william and kate middleton revealing their baby boy to the world. the future king of england managing his first royal wave. right on queue he waved. the proud parents say they still haven't settled on that name. >> he's a big boy, a little heavy. but we're still working on a name. we'll have that as soon as we can. >> i think any parent knows what this feeling is like. >>gretchen: the duchess paid special tribute to the late princess diana.
3:06 am
i didn't realize this when i saw the first photo but look closely. she had on a pollka dot similar to the one diana wore when she walked out of the same hospital wing 31 years ago. >>steve: they took the baby after the photo op and put it in the ranger and drove off to the castle. meanwhile, president obama is set to deliver a major speech on the economy today as he lays out his vision for the middle class. there are also reports that the white house is trying to figure out how to lend some assistance to the broke city of detroit. we're live in washington, d.c. where down there they were talking bailout, weren't they elizabeth? >> yes. in several pending speeches this week the president wants to remind americans he's focused on the economy. the white house is exploring on how to lend assistance to the now bankrupt city of detroit. the administration's latest
3:07 am
initiative kick off today as president obama travels to illinois and missouri where he will be pushing new policy proposals in a series of follow-up speeches planned through september, most of which will target issues such as housing, retirement, security and of course the younger generation. the president will make an argument that the economy is on the right track but the government still has a lot of work to do. >> and in order to do that, we need to make wise investments in education and innovation and infrastructure. and not cut those programs and decimate those programs so that we can protect special interests. >> so far there has been no indication of a bailout for detroit, and the idea has very little to no public support. the administration may have to provide assistance, though, to union supporters who are in fear of losing pensions to the city's chapter 9 filing. of course a bailout is something the white house has not completely ruled out. >> no plans to provide the
3:08 am
kind of assistance you're talking about. the city has to, and the state have to work that out with the city's creditors. >> conservative critics argue nationwide taxpayers should not be responsible for backing cities that have failed, especially since there are about 100 other cities around the nation reporting to be in some serious distress from debt. gretchen, steve, brian, back to you. >>steve: thank you very much. >>brian: we write that check, we're going to be writing checks into oblivion. can't do it. >>gretchen: later on we'll tell you they're not going to call it a bailout. they're going to massage the wording of it so it doesn't sound as bad. bailout with most americans doesn't rate very well. >>brian: free money had a we don't have -- free money that we don't have. >>gretchen: let's talk about delaware. state officials -- remember christine o'donnell, she ran for senate three years ago -- i think so. there was a big story that came out as she was launching her campaign that
3:09 am
she had a lien on a piece of property. it turns out now that the i.r.s. apparently investigated her without her knowing that and it was completely probably illegal to do that. >>brian: not only that, it was wrong. they put out a missive that said she owed money, a lien on a house, property she didn't have. she tried to tell people that, but instead the narrative became christine o'donnell, the woman who wants to reform the economy and rein in debt but can't get her personal checkbook in line. >>steve: she was told in january by a department of treasury official that her tax records were tapped by somebody in the state of delaware, the same day she announces she's running. a little fishy. here she is on our program explaining it. >> someone working for the delaware government illegally accessed my tax records. now coincidently on that same day the i.r.s. fired -- filed an erroneous tax lien with new castle county.
3:10 am
they later dismissed it as a computer error, but that tax lien followed my campaign. if someone is abusing their power at the i.r.s. and inappropriately accessing the records, the private personal record of political candidates and then using it to damage them, we need answers. i am completely dumbfounded as to why the criminal investigators have not only closed my case but why eric holder says there is no reason to look any further. >>brian: no problem. all tough do is go to the records and look it up and find out who opened the case and where the taxes are -- >>steve: i've got bad news. apparently chuck grassley, the senator from the great state of iowa, he's investigating. he's been told by investigators in delaware that they only keep computerized data for three months. it's gone. now they've got to truf the people who actually -- they've got to trust the
3:11 am
people who allegedly tapped into the tax records that they did it for legitimate reasons. >>gretchen: they would be able to get in e-mails from three years ago. it would take a little bit longer to figure out what the communication was. apparently it happened on a saturday which wasn't necessarily normal for people to be discussing business on a saturday and looking into people's records. it might take longer to get to the bottom of it, but they probably will. >>brian: i was watching old footage of anthony weiner's conference when he admits to sexing. >>gretchen: hard to believe anthony weiner would be talking about another sex scandal. this is months later after
3:12 am
-- >>steve: he quit the u.s. congress two years ago. then last year, last summer he started a relationship with a 22-year-old girl, progressive activist from the state of indiana. >>brian: called buxom -- >>steve: the relationship apparently -- the relationship apparently ran through november. at one point, according to the website, the dirty, weiner said to her you've got to delete all that stuff, those messages i sent you. by the way, i'm going to get you a condo and a job in chicago. >>brian: wait a second. he went to rehab, he went out of sight, lost his seat. he runs for mayor. for some reason he's winning in the recent polls. then it turns out as late as april 13 of this year he's still sexting with a 22-year-old who finds his
3:13 am
sex talk crazy and his wife is still there. >>steve: the good news is he's not dropping in. staying in to win. good luck. >>gretchen: ray kelly is coming on the show. he is chief of police but there are rumors he may be running for mayor. we'll ask him his thoughts as well. coming up, it's been nearly a year and four americans are dead. will we ever find out what happened in benghazi? lawmakers are using a new tactic to get to the bottom of it. >>brian: allen west here to explain is that. >>steve: a crocodile bites down on a trainer's head in front of horrified tourists. what happens next? >>gretchen: i thought that image was you. i thought that was you putting your head -- ♪ putting your head -- ♪ ♪ ♪ [ female announcer ] when your swapportunity comes,

3:17 am
>>gretchen: 17 minutes after the top of the hour. it's already been ten months since the benghazi attack. new exclusive information this morning. fox news located one of the security agents gravely injured in that act. his name is david offen, credited from saving a body that night. he is now recovering at walter reed medical center. a group of lawmakers using a tactic called a distinguished discharge petition. the 60 foot long scroll was rolled out yesterday with signatures of 1,000 special operation vets but it needs 218 house signatures. former congressman colonel allen west has signed it and he joins me now. good morning. >> good morning. how are you doing, gretchen? >> very well. what does this petition say? >> first of all, the petition that was signed by special operation speaks is
3:18 am
directing a lot of unanswered questions we have with reference to the benghazi incident. you have the basic question what was ambassador stevens doing on september 11? who were the individuals who ordered the stand-down. we know forces could have been there perhaps not in time to save the ambassador but definitely in time to save the two former navy seals. but the most important thing is you have house resolution 36 which is really asking for a select committee to be appointed. right now the investigation is spread out over four different committees. we want to see a unit of command, unit of effort. the discharge petition is trying to get to our 19 house member signatures so we can get house resolution 36 up for a vote which for some odd reason seems to be blocked in getting to the house floor. >>gretchen: many americans are watching this morning and they're saying ten months have gone by. at least for the families of these four americans killed, why have we had no arrests? there are five suspects
3:19 am
supposedly. why have there been no arrests? and why are people not on capitol hill demanding that something happen? >> that's the real question, you know. without a doubt, there has to be seen as a coverup and everyone that is complicit in this to include the media and those not willing to sign the discharge petition or h. res. 36. most importantly, this is not about arresting people. this was an attack on sovereign u.s. soil. we cannot see the loss of an ambassador being the new normal. and we also cannot, you know -- we have this mantra of leave no man behind. we turned our backs on men who were defending american soil, who were under attack. and that is reprehensible. that is not speaking to the better angels of our nature. for all the men and women in uniform, all those state department employees working in consolates and embassies, they need to know the people in washington, d.c. have their back. >>gretchen: so many
3:20 am
unanswered questions. keep us posted as to how many signatures this petition gets. it made its mark yesterday by rolling out had a scroll. >> can i say one thing? i have a dear friend, howard "mad max" mullen being inducted into the ranger hall of fame. i want to send him a special shoutout for his induction. >>gretchen: have a great weekend. you've seen them in action. swat teams, sometimes they hit the wrong house even used for pranks. should our police be acting like the military? a fair and balanced debate next. we'll show you what happens when sleeping passengers on an airplane attack. does he not know that person? oh my gosh!

>>brian: just days after a woman fell 75 feet on her -- to her death on a roller coaster, six flags is shutting down a second similar roller coaster. inspectors won't say what they found on the iron rattler at a six flags in san antonio. it is also made of wood and steel. >> when it comes to city versus countries, it turns out country living is more dangerous. a study finds the risk of death is 22% higher in the country. researchers say it is because people are more likely to die from an unexpected reason like a car crash. the good news is no subway accidents. steve? >>steve: we have seen them in action. swat teams with military grade weapons like soldiers on a battle field in our own neighborhoods. they are here to protect us, but sometimes mistakes are made. like this week when a police swat team in florida
3:25 am
busted into a woman's home working on a tip. a suspect was inside at the time. >> out of my peripheral vision i see movement. i look up. there is a "rambo" kind of guy with a vest and a gun pointing at me with a white light. i think it's a home invasion. i thought there were bad guys after me. >>steve: police eventually arrested the man they were looking for in another apartment complex. so is it time to end the militarizeation of our police force? here is radley balko, author of the rise of the warrior cop. joe mathews, retired detective sergeant. he joins us from florida. gentlemen, thanks for joining us. detective sergeant, let's start wufplt why do we need swat teams? >> i think things would be so much worse if we didn't have it. it's just like the space shuttle. we've obtained so much
3:26 am
information, it wasn't just landing on the moon but it was all the technology that we acquired as a result of that. yet, in normal law enforcement, they have learned so much from swat techniques. >>steve: i understand that. radley, the bad guys have really, really big guns these days. what's your problem with swat teams? >> my problem with swat teams, i'm not opposed to them in principle. i think there are occasions where they're justified, where that sort of force is justified. my problem is the overwhelming majority of swat raids today are breaking into people's homes to serve warrants for basically drug crimes. the appropriate use for a swat team is when you're using violence to defuse an already violent situation. an active shooter or bank robbery, hostage taking that sort of thing. when using them to serve drug warrants you're creating confrontation where there was none before. that is my objection.
3:27 am
>>steve: joe, what do you have to say? >> the drug war in south florida is the most dangerous warrant that you have to, you know, serve. they are all carrying guns and they all are career criminals. it would be the recommendation of most police departments that swat is involved in all search warrants. >>steve: we've got a graphic that shows, radley, how many swat teams we started. back in the 1970's, the first one was in l.a. to essentially combat after the watts riots. now there are over 5,000 swat -- 50,000 swat team raids each and every year. you say one of the problems sofpb times innocent -- is oftentimes innocent people are killed. >> innocent people are killed, innocent people are raided. we're seeing mission creep with swat teams. i've reported on cases where swat teams have been sent into bars where they suspected there was underage drinking going on. swat raids on neighborhood
3:28 am
poker games. in orlando they were doing swat regulation inspections on barber shops to see if they were licensed to cut hair. it's a case of you have this hammer and now all of a sudden every problem starts to look like a nail. >>steve: sure. joe, what do you say to that? there are a lot of instances, it sounds like, where perhaps you don't need all that fire power to go out and grab somebody. >> you know, it's remarkable how when we do a search, we don't know what to expect. there's swat teams at every police department throughout the united states. if they don't have their own swat team, they have access to one. and the amount of times that there are incidents where someone gets hurt or a wrong house is searched, those are so few compared to the overall amount of work they do. and the amount of police homicides -- in 2012, 1,600 police officers were killed in the line of duty, over
3:29 am
500 were shot. 70-something were swat officers. can you imagine how many more officers would have been killed if they didn't use the swat techniques. >>steve: you make a good point. radley, real quick. >> those numbers, there was nowhere near 1,600 police officers killed last year. it is not even anywhere close to that. 2012 was the safest year for police officers since the early 1960's. >>steve: radley and joe, we're going to have to end it. gentlemen, thank you very much. next up, the pwoepld -- the obama administration wants to map out american neighborhoods by race so it is fair. should the government be social engineering with your money. stuart varney on deck with his thoughts. then a croc attack. you have to see it to believe it. open wide. oh no. ♪ ♪ ♪e dla

3:34 am
inclination of who the baby will be named after, what the baby will be called. >>gretchen: lear are the real odds -- here are the real odds. you have the name george at two to one. james at four to one. listen to that music. alexander seven to one. louise and henry 12 to one. here's why it won't be james, i think. because james hewitt. remember james hewitt? i think varney just passed out. >>steve: here's why it won't be george. george castanza. >>gretchen: here are our picks for what we think the name will be. >>steve: i think the child could be named chutney because i've been to england a number of times and the people there love chutney. >>gretchen: frances alexander. frances because that's

3:36 am
collapsed up and into the jet's fuselage. the plane's data and voice recorders are at the ntsb labs in washington and hopes to provide clues as to what caused the nose gear to break. >>steve: you're supposed to have your phone off when you land. looks like somebody had their phone on. the boston cops released photos of the accused boston bomberer's surrender was stripped of his badge. he is not being fired but is on desk duty while police do a full investigation. murphy was not authorized to release the photos but did he did it in response to the rolling stone cover featuring tsarnaev. his son calls his dad a hero. >> throughout this process he's shown the characteristics i hope to someday model myself after. if i could be one-fourth of the man he is now, i'll be more than happy in my life. >>steve: murphy getting

3:40 am
denied federal funding. stuart varney is here to weigh in on this program. what do you make of it? >> it is a huge social engineering project using your tax money to influence where people live. let me repeat this. the government is creating these maps of every neighborhood in america, and they will identify residents by race. if you don't have the right racial mix in your neighborhood as determined by the government, then they will take corrective action, namely, withholding federal funds to your area, your state, your town, your neighborhood. that is social engineering. it was announced on july 16. sean donovan, secretary for housing and urban development, said we've got these new regulations using this massive data base to add, quote, protected classes to predominantly white neighborhood. >>steve: who at the federal level is going to be the ones saying you need this ratio of -- >> that's the important question. i don't know what the correct demographic spread is supposed to be.
3:41 am
it will be defined by the government. and i don't know what it's going to be. >>gretchen: what kind of dollars are we talking about? >> billions of dollars. i can't give you a precise number but it is all those dollars, federal dollars which flow to localities to provide housing or to support housing or development of some kind. you don't get them if you don't have the right racial mix. >>brian: i would not be surprised if you follow this story at 9:20 on the fox business network. >> a very big story. >>brian: we'll watch you fill in for neil cavuto at 4:00. >>gretchen: what are your picks for baby names? >> i think the middle name would be spencer, lady diana's family name. i reject utterly the idea that he would be called louie. we will not have a king louie in britain. period. do i make myself clear? >>gretchen: that's what i like about you.

life forever. after a grueling 14 rounds, ray mancini landed a knockout blow in the 15th that would put out his point and would put his opponent into a coma. >> i fought to fight for the honor of my father. after that fight it took the love away from me, took the honor away from me. there was nothing righteous about it. >>brian: the good son is a documentary focusing on the first time ray mancini meets the son of the man he killed in the ring 30 years earlier. ray "boom boom" mancini joins us live. it is so much more, about your family, where you came from and what you accomplished which is unbelievable. that moment when you were sitting on the stoop and up comes the boy who never met his father who died in the ring fighting you, that was a real moment. >> we were -- first, they told me that his son wanted to meet me, i said
3:47 am
absolutely. i thought it was important for me to meet him and him to meet him, to have closure for him and maybe myself. i always wondered about him and his mother. they said he wanted to meet me. i said great. he comes in. they're saying they're on their way, be there in ten minutes and this and that. finally i said to my director, i said jesse, you've got one shot to get this. i can't do this. you've got one shot so you better get everything you want now. there was a free camera shot. when he got there, he pulled up the car, he came out. i hug and kiss everybody. i didn't want to cross that line because of the asian culture, i know they're very conservative. i look a bit awkward obviously when i hugged them but it was nice. we embraced. we introduced his mother. she was loving, wonderful and gracious. finally we went in the house and ient dued my children -- i introduced my children and went in the
3:48 am
house. finally the guards started coming down on everybody and we went to dinner that night and it was great. >> he said i hated you for awhile. he found out what happened in the ring but then he watched the fight and understood the torture you went there and he said don't feel bad about it. the story of the good son written by mark kriegel is the story about a father who goes to world war ii, he gets blown up. you said i'm going to become the lightweight champion you couldn't do. what was it like accomplishing that and to be able to give your dad that belt? >> a great feeling. other than seeing my children born, there will be nothing in that life to give me that same euphoric type of feeling. it was an unbelievable feeling. even to this day i could feel it, i can remember it. i got it. just, it was the greatest feeling ever, the greatest moment of my life.
3:49 am
we shared it. it was just -- i love it. when i see it, i relive it again. the greatest feeling. >>brian: for a period, ray, sinatra was ringside. stallone was calling you. the documentary is awesome. go to i-tunes, download it or wait for theatrical release, august 9. still can't take you in a fight. >> i don't mess with heavyweights. >>brian: i'm not a heavyweights. doocy is the guy with the hands. better watch out for him. steve, stay back. he's our guest. ray mancini, congratulations on your career and where you are right now. thank you for coming in. 11 minutes before the top of the hour. states fighting back against the n.s.a. what texas is doing to keep its residents safe from spies. are you ready for the ultimate workout? anna kooiman crossfit

interrupts a lot? write us. because right now our favorite interrupter is -- >> steve: out on the streets. >> gretchen: a fire off the coast of louisiana. coast guard has been out overnight trying to put out the flames. having trouble trying to contain this fire. comes hours after nearly 50 employees had to be evacuated because the well blew out. no injuries reported. happening today, aaron hernandez back in court. even more trouble looming for him. prosecutors are reportedly presenting evidence to a grand jury for a 2012 double homicide as well, also in boston. police believe hernandez was with the victims the night of the murders at a club. an suv connected to the case was recently taken from the home of hernandez' uncle. the hearing is a probable cause hearing in the murder of odin lloyd. there is usually a probable cause ruling before the grand jury issues an indictment. that sums up to a lot of trouble for that young man.
4:04 am
more shame this morning for anthony wiener. this morning there is growing call for the disgraced democrat to drop out of the new york city mayoral race. he was forced to admit that he exchanged explicit photos and messages on-line with another woman under the alias, carlos danger. this happened a year after he resigned from congress, but he can't say that he win. >> i can't say exactly. sometime last summer, i think. in the early days of the campaign, people were pressing me for is there more out there and i said yes. i said that there was and so to some degree, this was something that we had in front of us. it's something we knew might come up. >> gretchen: his poor wife standing by him there, says she forgives hip. she took to the podium. it was amazing. she said she forgives him, she
4:05 am
loves him and they have a child together. tough spot for her. beyonce attacked by a fan at her concert in montreal, but it's not what you think. take a look. ♪ >> gretchen: the singer's hair got caught in one of the large electric fans on stage during her song. but beyonce kept belting it out as she and a couple stage hands worked to yank her strands out. the 31-year-old suffered no injuries and even joked about the incident later on instagram. those are your headlines. that's what happens when you have that long beautiful hair. >> brian: that's why i don't sing. >> steve: that's what happens when you're that close to a fan. let's tell but this, we had christine o'donnel on the show last week talk being how she discovered from a department of treasury official, she was told her tax records had been tapped by the state of delaware, the same day she essentially went
4:06 am
out and decided she was going to run for joe biden's open senate seat. here is the update. according to chuck grassley of iowa, the senator who is looking into this particular scandal, apparently there are no records that currently exist because apparently they only keep the computerized data for three months, then it's either erased or recycled. doesn't exist. so you got to trust them. >> brian: yeah. unbelievable. state officials told congress they likely were destroyed, destroyed the computer records that would show us exactly how they accessed christine o'donnel's personal tax records and they do admit the only justification for looking into them and for snooping into her background was a newspaper article. >> gretchen: can anyone actually believe that the irs only keeps documents for three months? >> brian: file it under naivete. >> gretchen: no way. there is a way to get these
4:07 am
records somewhere on some server with some subpoena, somebody can figure out where they are. >> brian: was there a sound bite that lasts 44 seconds that would encaps slate how she feels about this probe? >> steve: in a word? yes. >> someone working for the delaware government illegally accessed my tax records. now, coins dents leal on that same day, the irs filed an erroneous tax lien with new castle county. they later dismissed it as a computer error, but that tax lien followed my campaign. if someone is abusing their power at the irs and inappropriately accessing the records, the private personal records of political candidates and then using it to damage them, we need answers. i am completely dumb founded as to why the criminal investigators have not only closed my case, but why eric holder says there is no reason to look any further. >> steve: does look like she was
4:08 am
talking -- keep in mind, somebody at the state level e-mailed their supervisor on a saturday, hey, i just read about this lien in the paper. we should tap into her records. apparently they said yeah, go ahead and do it. the state says we didn't do anything wrong. you got to trust them. >> brian: they got the wrong house. >> gretchen: yeah. and you can never get back how that affected her candidacy. you just can't because that put doubt in voters' minds that she couldn't pay her rent and that there was this lien against the property that turns out she didn't even own. so what kind of case does she have? that's what i want to know. >> brian: bill maher killed her with that witch comment taken out of context. >> steve: did. continuing with the tax lien, let's talk about the irs. we have told you on a number of occasions how the irs inex olympicably, it seemed, was targeting conservative and tea party groups. as it turns out, now initially it was rogue agents in cincinnati. now it goes all the way up to a
4:09 am
presidential appointee by the name of william wilkins. he is in the office of chief counsel. he and lois lerner apparently were forwarded the applications by tea party organizations from carter hull who testified last week. yeah, wasn't just me. i wanted to approve them, but i had to send them up to washington. that's mr. hull who fingered mr. wilkins. now, what exactly was mr. wilkins doing at the white house just before the guidelines on how to target organizations came out? >> brian: how this? on april 24, doug shulman goes to the white house, meets with the chief of staff, who by the way, the former chief of staff, jeff sites, who is still in south africa on vacation. he would have a lot to say. they meet for 8 1/2 hours. the next day, april 25 and after that they give out guidelines for analyzing and green lighting or red lighting or putting into the delay of game category all those 501 c 3 organizations that might have tea party
4:10 am
affiliations. the next day in comes william will conditions convince who -- wilkins who met with the president and put additional comments on the draft for guidance. it all goes into play the 24 and 25th of april where these two head, showman and wilkins go into the white house. >> gretchen: yet the white house is telling reporters asking questions that those two gentlemen were there not to discuss the targeting of tea party. >> brian: they were there for the easter egg roll. >> gretchen: you remember that answer from doug shulman. he had been to the white house for countless times and he said to go to the easter egg roll no inn a snide way. if you're at the white house for eight hours and then the next day these guidelines come out, are you really talking about the easter egg roll or obamacare? >> brian: we can go to the former office of management and budget director and find out what they talked about. but we can't find him. >> steve: he's still on vacation. meanwhile, later today, it looks like the house of representatives could vote on an
4:11 am
amendment that would essentially limit surveillance of all the phone records here in the united states of america. today the amendment on a defense department bill would defund the nsa's bulk collection on people's meta data. keep in mind, these are people who are not under investigation. if you go out and get a warrant, people don't have a problem with that. but it's just the bulk wholesale spying on everybody in the united states that has a lot of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle worried. so they're going to try to defund that. >> gretchen: some states are taking it in their own control to do just that. so montana and texas now banning spying by local and state authorities. so unless you are suspected of a crime, they apparently now cannot look into your phone data or any kind of electronic device. so it's already happening in states, regardless of what the federal government is going to do. >> brian: this is a republican congressman who pushed this. he put it out there and general
4:12 am
alexander, who is running nsa, scrambled to capitol hill and said, guy, you got to rethink this because the mega data storage, we're not going to touch it unless you blow something else, we can find out who you've been calling, they want to explain this further, the technology without exposing the entire program. so those who know and are involved in intelligence are really worried about this. but this is republicans and some republicans and some democrats. this is relatively bipartisan. not all, but some. >> steve: so that's what's going on at the national level. the states of montana and texas actually came up with these new rules cracking down on spying before the nsa stuff hit the fan. good for them. >> gretchen: coming up, the president says no bailout for detroit. but we just learned about secret talks that say something else. and could it be to keep the unions happy? >> brian: plus we all went crazy over their tree climbing skills, me especially. it turns out goats know how to slide, too.
4:13 am
what can't they do? parasail? >> steve: look at that billy goat inining au natural. with new all natural lean cuisine honestly good. it's frozen like you've never seen. they've stripped down to only natural ingredients. why? what were you thinking? new lean cuisine honestly good. in the natural frozen meals section. i hate getting up in the morning. i love cheese. i love bread. i'm human! and the weight watchers 360 program lets me be. the reason i'm still in this body feelin' so good isn't because i never go out and enjoy the extra large, extra cheese world we live in.

4:17 am
had to be right now. but you look at the financial situation, i don't know that they had any choice. >> brian: here are some the facts. unemployment rate triple since 2000. lost half its population, and named one of the most dangerous cities in america. you need an ambulance, you got to wait almost an hour to get it. how did this happen? who do you blame? >> well, america always likes to point a finger and say this guy is to blame. it's not one person. it's not one thing. it's 60 years of mismanagement, of a manufacturing city, place where people work with their hands entering an era where people don't do that anymore. and once in 1950, we had 2 million people living here. now we have 700,000. we're still built for the 2 million, but we only have the 700,000. so you're delivering electricity and water sometimes out to a single house on a block of abandoned houses. so we need it to shrink and unfortunately the industry that supports us, the auto constantlg
4:18 am
since 1950 with ups and downs. >> brian: where do you put the blame on unions in all this? did they have too much power over a city and not acknowledge the diminishing manufacturing base that supported the city? >> well, everybody has to take a little bit of blame. unions, too. but we're a town that's very proud of its hard work and we're a town that's mentality is if you put in 30 years of work and they promise you a pension, that's the reason you put in the 30 years of hard work and then you expect that pension to be paid. now what people are being told here is that the retirement money that they worked all those years for is going to have to go and their 70s and 80s aren't going to be funded like they were promised. i don't think that's the unions' fault. i think that's bad forecasting and bad management all around on both sides. >> brian: in the big picture, i guess no one had the foresight maybe pittsburgh or san francisco or other communities were able to see where they made
4:19 am
the pivot, made the adjustment with the changing global economy. >> well, that's probably true in hindsight. but neither one of those cities are dependents on a single industry as much as detroit is on the auto industry. and they've been able -- san francisco has got a lot of other things. pittsburgh is a different story, it's a smaller city. so detroit is somewhat unique, but we're not that unique. the thing i try to get across to people is we're a really good hard working people. we've been looked down at and spat at and made fun of and jokes on talk shows at night constantly over the years. three years ago everybody had us buried with the auto industry and the people here are still resilient, hard working and detroit's not going to go away. its people aren't. they may have to change its management and financial structure burks the people, like myself and others, still believe in this city and we're not running.

4:26 am
we traveled to the mountains of west virginia to experience it firsthand. in the deep woods of west virginia, a group of senior executives had been getting the experience of a lifetime. they're training with navy seals. >> what we wanted to do when the ceo approached me was take these five individuals and take them to a point that military veteran s, seals, go to in their minds, where they have to take everything that's important to them in life, set it to the side and only concentrate on the here and now and the man that's next to them. >> for the first time, they weren't as serious about it, smoking cigar, now we're a few days into it, what kinds of change have you seen? >> one of the biggest changes is they understand and appreciate the guy next to them. they knew the guy next to them. now they understand him. >> you were the boss. is it hard for these guys to see you broken down? >> yeah. it's hard to fail.
4:27 am
we failed here. make no mistake about it. each one of us failed at a lot of things and we paid the physical price for it and your team members see you fail but that's important because people fail in the business world, too. we had 24 hours of misery and these guys really took us to our mental end and today it's about can we take everything we absorbed in the last 24 hours and learn and apply it? >> executives will be teaming up with the navy seals to perform their final mission. they will be rescuing a hostage and that happens to be me. but before i am captured, i'm taught basic survival skills. i would just think once i'm duct tape, there is no getting out. >> we're going to show you how it get out. let's take you up. >> the thing to remember when you're bound with duct tape is keep tension between your arms. >> one big movement hard like this. >> oh, yeah. if the bad guy uses chains instead, the either period of times say stay calm and create a lot of space between your arms. >> what you want to do is play

4:48 am
our son is also in private school and that costs $580 a month. we've been talking for years about getting out of debt, but haven't managed to do it yet. where do you recommend we start? >> well, what's interesting is any of us can achieve almost anything if we have a big enough reason. the problem with this situation is they're stuck like a rat in a wheel. they're just run, run, run, go, go, go and getting nowhere. they've got no traction. so you've got to get on the dreaded b word, the budget, and write it out, but you have to have a real reason to do that. the problem is sometimes okay is the enemy of the best. so this is simple overspending. >> gretchen: so that's a money mistake all in their head. here is aaron in texas. let's see what the issue is. my 21-year-old daughter is a single mom. she owes me $2,300. am i wrong for expecting her to pay me back? all right, dave. what do you say about this issue? >> yes. i would probably forgive that debt and then i would stop
4:49 am
loaning her money. you're enabling her -- this is a classic enabler, co-dependent situation is what a psychologist would call it. but you've got to really step in and teach her to stand on her own because there is going to be a day when you're not there. and loaning your kids money is a really bad idea 'cause it changes the relationship. it makes thanksgiving dinner taste differently. >> gretchen: let's not go there. lot of things can happen on thanksgiving dinner. here is mandy from south carolina. my husband and i are living paycheck to paycheck. we tried to pay off debt burks end up in a bad place. what should we do? >> this really ends up being a sense of denial and you've got to step in and really attack it. once again, we've got to lay out a game plan and we've to have something where we're aiming at a 5 or ten or 20 year goal. not just friday. oh, god it's monday. >> gretchen: thanks for being so concise and helping people out and hopefully they can get past those thing in their head. have a great weekend. we'll see you next week.

estate planning. she thinks she's going to live forever. i'm not after her money. i just don't want the state to get it if it's not allocated properly. is she being nuts? >> listen, it's normal to fear death. so many of us do. but it's nuts to pay the estate tax when you don't have to. here is an unfair tax that can deplete your family's resources and if you fear something so much that you can't take normal action, we're going to call that nuts. >> steve: okay. two nuts in a row. finally, my brother refuses to grow up. he's never held a real job and every time my parents help him out, they say it's the last time! are they nuts to keep rewarding bad behavior? that's certainly how it feels to me. >> well, they should stop saying it's the last time, 'cause it isn't. but they're not nuts. i'm going to call it normal because here is what we don't know. we don't know whether their son or the sibling of the person asking the question here is capable of doing better than he's doing and so you want to

hit that fine line where you're encouraging someone every bit you can, but if they're incompetent, whether by personality or mood disorder, whatever it is, of sustaining themselves, what do you do for your kid? you keep a roof over your kid's head. >> steve: sure. all right. dr. keith ablow, if folks have questions, you can e-mail him. we'll pass it along to the doctor up in bean town. keith, thank you very much. >> all right. take care. >> steve: it is now a little before the top of the hour. breaking news out of russia. nsa leaker ed snowden may be on the move. details in moments. and the president said he'd like him as homeland security secretary. but will new york top cop take the job? ray kelly here to set the record straight as "fox & friends" rolls on live from new york city the great outdoors...

[ laughter ] >> steve: good job. you know why they always go hear ye? it's hard to hear ye. >> brian: hear ye or her or anybody. >> gretchen: we have a fox news alert. moments ago we learned nsa leaker edward snowden has been given approval to enter russia even though he's been there for how long now? like a month? that means he can actually leave the airport in moscow. i'd hate to know where he's been for that period of time. anyway, he applied for political asylum in russia last week. it can take one to three months for a decision. his lawyer says he will deliver the documents to him today. he's been holed up at the airport, but we don't know where, since fleeing hong kong

store policy and need to vent? one woman caught on camera expressing her frustration at the apple store. >> i can walk in the store and get it! >> gretchen: the town cryer. the woman apparently annoyed she couldn't buy a part and install it herself. they said she needed a genius bar appointment. yes, yes, yes. her tantrum now going viral on-line. and those are your headlines. >> steve: they want you to schedule things on-line. make it easier. >> brian: let's talk about christine o'donnel. she was the republican nominee for the senate, a seat that many republicans thought was going to be theirs. it was a failed candidacy. she won the primary, but did not win the senate seat. as you know, because she never got out of the box. just as she announced and emerged, it turns out there was an irs investigation and they revealed all of a sudden that there was a lien on her house and all her credibility as somebody who is supposed to
5:06 am
reform things and get our fiscal house in order, well, it just -- she had no credibility on the issue. the problem is, she did not have a lien on her house. they had the wrong house. who did the irs investigation? now we find out that we're never going to find out because after three months in delaware, they destroy the records. >> gretchen: i think we're still going to find out. >> brian: you do? >> gretchen: yeah. because i don't believe for a second they destroy records after only three months. that's what their claim is. that's the convenient claim. come on, we have servers and subpoenas. someone is going to be able to subpoena to get those records off some server. they're not gone after three months. >> steve: chuck grassley, i think he's pretty much furious because he's trying to piece together who -- it looks like a hit job on her, where somebody in government at the state level in delaware the day she declares she wants to go ahead and fill joe biden's empty senate seat, it is revealed that she's got this problem and that a treasury
5:07 am
department official told her that her federal tax records were tapped by somebody at the state level. and now the state says we don't have those any more. we only keep them three months. she was with us on friday. she detailed what happened. she's furious, too. >> someone working for the delaware government illegally accessed my tax records. now, coincidentally on that same day, the irs filed an erroneous tax lien with new castle county. they later dismissed it as a computer error, but that tax lien followed my campaign. if someone is abusing their power at the irs and inappropriately accessing the records, the private personal records of political detainees and then using it to damage them, we need answers. i am completely dumb founded as to why the criminal investigators have not only closed my case, but why eric holder says there is no reason to look any further.
5:08 am
>> brian: we'll follow it. i can't believe this, anthony wiener in a sex scandal. the congressman who left in shame a couple of years ago now wants to be mayor. winning in some polls. now we find out even after the debauchle that destroyed his career, that carlos danger, aka anthony wiener was out there sexting various people, including a 22-year-old brunette. >> steve: that's the latest instance. yesterday wiener essentially said look, look, if there is no news in this press conference because i told you there could be more women out there, more texts out there, and there were. but just the time line you need to remember, two years ago he resigned his seat in congress and then last year, right up through november, he was involved in a dirty relationship, a dirty on-line relationship. >> brian: found on >> steve: exactly. with a woman from indiana who apparently things started to
5:09 am
fizzle out in november and he demanded that she delete those e-mail. earlier he had promised her a condo in chicago and a job. which kind of sounds like a bribe, doesn't it? he would be perfect as mayor of new york city. >> gretchen: don't you remember when the did the people magazine sort of coming back out article where it was beautiful pictures of anthony wiener and his wife and their baby. well, if you go back and look at the time line, this was just starting now with this new woman when that article was coming out. how does he come up with the name carlos danger? you find out what your name would be by doing your first pet's name and the street you grew up on. fleetwood river. >> brian: and i am not sydney letters. that's her name. that is her name. so this is amazing. let's watch this press conference. here is what's different about it. his wife is not only standing by him after the first scandal, and
5:10 am
after the second scandal, she actually looks happy. listen. >> i'm glad these things are behind us. i know that this was a very public thing that we had happen to us, but by no means does it change the fundamentals of my feelings here and that is that i want to bring my vision to the people of the city of new york. i hope they're willing to still continue to give me a second chance. i hope they realize that in many ways what happened today was something that frankly had happened before, but it doesn't represent all that much that is new. >> what i want to say is i love him. i have forgiven him. i believe in him. and we have said from the beginning we are moving forward. >> steve: what is she doing? why is she there? >> gretchen: i think this all comes down to having a child. and we don't know exactly, but i
5:11 am
think it would have been a lot easier to just dump him if she wasn't pregnant when the first thing came out. >> steve: we're up to the second thing. >> gretchen: i know. i'm speaking from being a parent that it's -- i'm not defending what she did. i'm saying as a parent and you have a baby at home, then it makes it more complicated. >> steve: i just know that if i were that guy standing there yesterday, my wife would not be in the same time zone with me. >> gretchen: yeah. i know. i'm just saying i'm thinking about the child. >> steve: the guy is a dog. >> brian: how could you possibly trust him as mayor? >> steve: you can't! >> brian: people are giving this guy high marks! up until this moment. >> steve: if you can't trust him as mayor, can you trust him as a husband? apparently she does. we asked you about -- we have some tweet. interestingly enough, that was kind of an emergency press conference yesterday. this is a tweet from bill west at bill west. the guy behind the cubicle at this press conference is cracking me up for some reason. he's wilson from home
5:12 am
improvement. >> gretchen: this was the only thing funny about the whole press conference yesterday was can we show the video where we can see cubicle guy there? he got like his own twitter handle. here is cubicle guy. i laughed out loud 'cause i didn't pay attention to this when i was actually -- there he is. cubicle guy. >> brian: like why step around? i can watch from here. >> gretchen: here is a tweet from josh robin. wiener and houma behind us, unfortunately is this guy over the cubicle. you can laugh about it. >> steve: another one, the cubicle behind wiener, henceforth be known as the carlos d. oh, boy. prairie dog style. >> brian: is that his head or are you calling hq? >> steve: no, it's not. he was apparently appearing at that location to do something a little later on. it is apparently the gay man's health crisis being. so it was just an impromptu news
5:13 am
conference. >> brian: right. >> gretchen: okay. there used to be more than 1,000 murders in new york city each year. now that he's in office, it's less than 200. but critics say commissioner ray kelly's tactics target people by race. it's talk, stop and frisk. >> brian: then when crocks attack, you have to see it to believe it. a crocodile bites down on a trainer's head in front of horrified tourists. after all, the trainer did put his head in his mouth what makes your family smile? backflips and cartwheels. love, warmth. here, try this. backflips and camm, ok!s. ching! i like the fact that there's lots of different tastes going on. mmmm! breakfast i'm very impressed. this is a great cereal! honey bunches of oats. i hear you crunching. apply cold therapy in the first 24 hours.

5:16 am
>> steve: many people in the united states are outraged by the big stories in new york city like soda bans and salt intake. but 20 years ago, the biggest problems were muggings and murders.
5:17 am
that changed largely thanks to our next guest, police commissioner ray kelly with his tactics that some view as controversial. >> gretchen: so one of those tactics, the successful stop and frisk program, let's police officers search potential suspects based on their appearance. but critics say it's promoting racial profiling. >> brian: commissioner ray kelly is here. first off, the whole stop and frisk with the george zimmerman, what are we doing to stop crime in different areas? first up, how would you define stop and frisk? >> well, it is a practice by police officers who are out in america that allows them if they see someone, they have reasonable suspicion that someone is about to, is or has committed a crime, to stop them, to ask questions, and to do a limited pat-down if they themselves can articulate a perception of danger. this is, as i say, a practice of
5:18 am
law enforcement. it's fundamental to law enforcement because you have to have the ability to inquire, to ask questions. that's what you pay the police officers to do. >> steve: sure. the other thing is, it works. you wrote an op ed in the "wall street journal" yesterday where you talked about essentially that in the last 11 years, 7363 lives have been saved in some measure by stop and frisk. >> well, again, i think it's overblown. it's part of the practices and strategies that we use to keep the city safe. but what we tried to show in that article was the dramatic reduction in murders. 11 years before mayor bloomberg took office. and also that those lives saved are largely young men of color. that seems to be lost in the debate. no one seems -- >> brian: because 90% of the murders that you found out, i read in the article, they were
5:19 am
black and hispanic. >> and 96% of the shooting victims are black and hispanic. that is the reality. that's the harsh reality on the streets of this city and other major cities. >> gretchen: so the fear is that a democrat will be elected mayor, because they've already come out to try and stop the stop and frisk program. and that the fear is 20 years of hard work and reducing crime and murders will be thrown out the window. >> well, it's not clear what they have in mind. people want to amend it, change it, but they're not specific. and i think -- as a matter of fact, there was an article written today in the "new york post" that says precisely that. what are your proposals to control crime in the city? and clearly public safety is the foundation to everything positive that's happened in this city. the rents are skyrocketing and not great news for everybody, but the economy here relative of the city is booming and the mayor has said, and i certainly
5:20 am
agree, that the foundation, so much of this is rock solid public safety. >> steve: you mentioned the mayor. there are a lot of people in this town who would love to see you go ahead and run for mayor. we got an election coming up. >> no. that's not for me. but thank you. >> steve: you know a lot of people want that. >> well, you have to talk to some people in my family. [ laughter ] >> brian: right. if asked, would you stay on as police commissioner? >> i really haven't made a decision in that regard. i'm focusing on the job right now. >> gretchen: what about the department of homeland security secretary? [ laughter ] i hate to keep saying that -- >> gretchen: i know, i have to toss it out there. >> i'm certainly flattered by what the president said. it's an important job, but let's see what happens. >> steve: okay. what about if we have an opening for a town cryer. you interested? >> hey, absolutely. >> brian: but he's a red development he's the enemy. >> i can't understand what he said, though. he looked good. >> gretchen: thanks very much. >> thank you. >> gretchen: you thought it was bad when irs workers were
5:21 am
dancing on your dime. well, this controversy just got worse. brand-new abuse from the agency to the tune of a million bucks. >> steve: then sunken treasure to longer just a legend: a group of guys from tampa strike it rich. wait 'til you find out what ther found out at the bottom ttrade'si can quickly understand my charts, and spend more time trading. their quick trade bar lets my account follow me online so i can react in real-time. plus, my local scottrade office is there to help. because they know i don't trade like everybody. i trade like me. i'm with scottrade.

[ mike ] when i was taking the chantix, it reduced the urge to smoke. [ malennouncer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if y have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery.
5:23 am
common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. it feels wonderful. i don't smoke. i don't smoke. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
5:24 am
>> brian: days after a woman fell 75 feet to her death on a six flags roller coaster in texas, the park is shutting down a second very similar ride. inspectors won't say what they found on the iron rattler in san antonio, but you can imagine. and it's the craziest video you'll see all day. a crocodile snapping its jaws shut while the trainer put his head in its mouth. some would say why did he do that? the for highing stunt -- horrifying stunts happened in front of tourists. he escaped with some bite wounds
5:25 am
on his face and neck. but his mouth is okay. >> gretchen: you got to love this next story about perseverance. a group of treasure hunts from tampa rain not guilty millions after discovering 60-tons of silver at the bottom of the sea. it was loss on a british cargo ship off the coast of ireland in the 19 40s believed to be worth tens of millions of dollars today. mark gordon is the president of that lucky group, odyssey marine exploration and he's my guest this morning. good morning. >> good morning. great to be here. >> gretchen: as just a token of, i don't know, being a nice guy, you brought me one? >> yeah. absolutely. >> gretchen: this is 80 pounds of silver. how many of these did you find in this latest treasure? >> well, nearly 3,000 in total. we picked up about 1574 this year. and last year 1218 of these bars. >> gretchen: so tell me how it works. this is a fascinating way in which you go and look for these treasures.
5:26 am
who had the rights to that sunken ship and what do they get? >> the process starts with us doing historical research. we have a team great historians. in this case, the british government had actually paid the war risk insurance. this ship was sunk by a you boat in world war ii. so we went to the british government. we made a commercial salvage deal, a standard agreement and odyssey will ends up with 80% of the haul and the british government will end up with 20%. it's a great model because governments need their coffers filled and we have a way to do that now. >> gretchen: wow. you do all the work and they still get part of the profit. you say they're 8500 ship wrecks across the world. of those, how many more treasures could we find? >> we have 8500 just in our proprietary database. united nations estimates 3 million ship wrecks in the ocean. of our 8500, we think at least 100 will be worth 50 million or more. >> gretchen: so you specifically target these ships, then, based
5:27 am
on the manifests from long ago. what kind of information do you see in them? n it's unbelievable. in the case where this bar came from, we had the detailed records that the government had issued when they issued the insurance for this. we had each bar's serial number, weight and purity, so we were able to match it up very specifically. >> gretchen: if you get 80% of the dough from this, 61-tons, okay, do the math for me. >> it's about $35 million this year and we had about $41 million worth of silver last year at current silver prices. >> gretchen: the people who do the dive, do they work on commission? >> every one of our teammates has a piece of the action in the form of equity. we're a publicly traded company. we're all owners of the company. and the other distinction is no one goes down. i worked my way through college as a dive, but now we do it with unmanned robotic submarines. >> gretchen: so the row gots get -- robots get to cash in. fascinating story. it shows perseverance pays off. >> that's right.
5:28 am
a tremendous accomplishment for our team. a lot of perseverance and a lot of creativity to make this happen. >> gretchen: great american story. thanks so much. >> thank you for having me. >> gretchen: coming up, our own ainsley earhart abducted by terrorists. oh, oh >> oh, my gosh! where are you taking me! don't take me! i'm an american citizen. >> gretchen: more americans wanting to learn how it escape situations like this. so she found out how from the navy seals. plus, has this ever happened to you on a airplane? the woman is in his lap! is she drooling in his lap, too? what happens when sleeping passengers -- oh, my goodness. put up the barrier [ brent ] now steve's looking pretty good so far.

[ laughter ] >> gretchen: how about god save "fox & friends." >> yes, god save "fox & friends." >> gretchen: oh, yes, we need that. >> steve: by the way, there is a story out. did you realize the reason we have a town cryer today is because a couple of days ago, the day the baby was born, that town cryer was not actually invited by the royal family. that town cryer in london crashed the party. >> gretchen: what? >> brian: get out of here. >> steve: guy's name is -- he's 76. tony appleton. he has been the royal town cryer in the past. but apparently he worked with a reporter to come up with what should i say. he thought i'd stand on the
5:34 am
steps 'cause he didn't think he'd get any further and he read it and his picture all around the world. people think, yeah, he was invited by the royal family. nope. he crashed the party. >> brian: by the way, we never booked our town cryer. >> gretchen: no. >> brian: he just showed up and he was wearing that. we keep going to him. what are the odds? >> gretchen: all right. so the queen visited the baby apparently this morning over in london. >> brian: why? >> gretchen: because she's the great grandmother. >> brian: oh,. >> gretchen: i think it was in our news by the numbers that the first time that a great grandmother in royalty has visited the heir in 120 years. >> brian: so let's talk about the odds of what the baby is going to be named because no one can come up with anything. evidently the parents are at at loss. george, two to one. henry 12 to one. arthur is 12 to one and albert is 14 to one. so if they're watching now, will and kate, here are our choice. steve? >> steve: well, i suggested earlier that because the people of england love chutney, chutney would be a good name. >> brian: all right.
5:35 am
>> gretchen: that's very kardashian of you. i thought we were giving serious names. so i realized frances for a boy was is, but frances was diana's middle name. so i thought that would be a nice tribute to her and better than spencer 'cause i'm not sure that the queen would like the name spencer. i'm going frances alex handser. >> brian: randy jackson is my choice because he is royalty to us as the long-time serving judge on "american idol." >> steve: sure. also an idle to us is stuart varney, punishes -- once upon a time a british subject. here he is today. >> i think the middle name may be spencer, which would be diana 's family name. but i reject utterly the idea that he will be called louis. we will not have a king louis in britain, period. >> gretchen: right. >> steve: hear ye. thank you, oh, business cryer, stuart varney. >> gretchen: now for the official name, louis.
5:36 am
no, just kidding. we don't know yet. we don't know when we'll know. but it will probably be quicker than will. >> brian: mark says prince hagry or albus harry. >> steve: no, it's all together. >> brian: how would you have a name that long? >> gretchen: 'cause they get like four names. >> steve: if the kid loves quidditch, that would be an appropriate name. >> brian: i told you my confirmation name, i wanted, mohammed. my family gently talked me out of it. i said what about cassius? they didn't want that either. >> gretchen: can i call your mom to make sure it's a true story. >> brian: oh, it's a true story. >> gretchen: at that point the priest passed out? >> brian: the priest called my house and then didn't ask to speak to me. he asked to speak to my mom. >> steve: mohammed i believe is the most common name in the world. >> brian: michael. >> gretchen: why couldn't you
5:37 am

5:38 am
on desk duty while police do a full investigation. >> steve: he's a state trooper. >> brian: right. murphy released the photos in response to the rolling stone cover featuring dzhokhar tsarnaev. he's already served a one-day unpaid suspension. his son calls his dad a hero. >> thought this process he's shown the characteristics that i hope to one day model myself after. if i could be one fourth of the man he is now, i'll be more than happy with my life. couldn't be prouder. >> brian: murphy also getting support from victims of the bombing. this weekend he met with jeff bowman who lost both his legs in the blast. >> gretchen: if you thought the irs learning how to line dance on your dime was bad, well, more bad news. the waste is even worse. a new report from the inspector general reveals the scandal-plagued agency spent $4.7 million on executive travel in the 2011-12 fiscal year. 15 executives alone accounted for more than $1 million in travel expenses and a dozen were
5:39 am

[ laughter ] the woman is out cold. he's not sure how to handle it. so he taped it but tries close to a dozen times to lift her up. eventually he does luck out. he gets the tired travel tore sit up in her seat. he's relieved. but it wasn't long before the woman found somebody else to lean on. this guy seems he doesn't care. >> gretchen: we were just wondering if there was drool. did you just see? did you just see? >> steve: i don't know. >> gretchen: look! she wipes her mouth. stay on the video for a minute. here it is right here. >> brian: oh, i don't need to see that. >> gretchen: yuck. >> steve: we asked you, because that's a clear shot of the woman, if you had any idea who that woman was, and i did get an e-mail. i think from tom in ohio, he knew who she was. her name, eileen.
5:40 am
