you. i'm in for -- a terror plot already under way. what we know at this hour straight ahead. >> another fox news alert. why you were sleeping a deadly hit-and-run in the state of california. witnesses say the driver was out for blood when he plowed his car into a crowd of busy people on a boardwalk. >> thrill seekers rejoice. ultimate man versus beast battle coming to the united states.
the spain inspired bull run on its way to the state. not everybody is happy about this. it's "fox & friends" on sunday morning and it starts right now. hi, everybody. >> well, good morning. >> you look extra good today. >> we have four more hours of that. >> it's going to be a good show. we're going to start off this morning with a fox news alert. at this hour u.s. embassies around the world brace for a terror attack they say could happen any time. >> here is what's going on. intelligence officers official say a major plot is under way and terrorist are in place ready to strike. peter doocy is in washington with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that's right. the latest update we have,
terrorist are in place ready to carry out what is described as a major plot based on a new cbs news report describing the intelligence we have that prompted the united states to close 22 embassies and consulates around the world. this intelligence is reportedly very specific and relates to an al qaeda-related threat. >> it is more specific. we are taking it seriously, which i think you'd expect us to do. there is a significant threat stream and we're reacting to it. >> the specifics are a secret at this early hour. declined to give details other than to say western interests are in danger. based on the embassies and consulates now closed those western interests appear to be mostly in the middle east and north africa. that is why a worldwide travel warning is in place for all americans for the first time since september 2011, the ten-year anniversary of the attack that killed nearly 3,000
americans in new york, northern virginia and pennsylvania. president obama is celebrating his 52nd birthday at camp david. he played golf before he left and the white house said before departing this morning the president was updated on the potential threat occurring in or emanating from the arabian peninsula by assistant to the president for homeland security and counter-terrorism lisa monaco. we expect him to return to the white house later today. >> not just the united states, germany, france, united kingdom closing their embassy. >> yes. it's described as a specific threat. yet our response all the way from bangladesh to algeria, halfway around the globe practically, it's a kbenl response to what is characterized -- >> what do you think the terrorists are saying, look, we got it done. >> we won. that's what's so upsetting, even if there's no destruction or
blood shed, which of course everyone around the world is hoping there isn't, the jihadists are loving this because it's changing the way we're living our lives and doing business, because sunday is a day of business. >> terrorism is supposed to make you live in fear. >> at the very least they are sending a clear message, we still exist, contrary to what the president promised this country not too long ago. listen to this. >> i said we refocus on the people who actually attacked us on 9/11. today al qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. >> there are reports, too, the leader who replaced osama bin laden has given two speeches saying the muslim world needs to unite, said he disagrees with the u.s. policy going on in egypt as well. also, this is the 27th day of ramadan, also known as the night
of power, the time when moham d mohammed -- if you're a believer, when mohammed got the first versus for the koran. >> the massive prison brakes across the region. >> not everybody believes al qaeda is on the run. >> apparently al qaeda doesn't agree. they strung more than 1,000 people from prisons in various countries. >> last week. >> 1200 prisoners in a single break. >> benghazi. >> how do you do that? >> a massive one at abu ghraib prison in iraq, too. here is the general on the al qaeda threat that we face. >>. >> certainly after 9/11 we clearly had al qaeda on the run because we responded to quickly to that threat and intercepted a lot of other threats and killed a bunch of leaders in the
process. they have had time to regroup. they are clearly on the rise and emboldened by benghazi. that's the harsh truth of it. they did not expect to have the kind of success they had this night. straws extraordinary what they were able to achieve killing an ambassador and burning a consulate to the ground, killing three others and forcing the evacuation of a cia base. >> what's the reaction to this? clearly the message is we are afraid, we are running, we are weak. i don't think there's any doubt this is the way this is being read, closing embassies and consulates. >> he mentioned are they emboldened. did we allow that to happen? too many olive branches? >> from the very beginning the idea was as articulated by rudy
giuliani -- >> criticized for not having done enough in benghazi, we watched four innocent americans, at least we're doing something right now, even if it is obliqueness, hopefully, if possible, it will limit the loss of life we experience. >> you can't have it both ways. you talk about benghazi. maybe we should close that before the attack. what do we do? do you keep those 22 open? >> of course. you recognize there's always risks. there's tons of people who hate us in the world. we're the preeminent country in the world, that draws hatred and violence. you persevere. you don't cower. that invites more attacks. >> we'll be watching all morning and all day on the fox news channel but we need to get to news headlines this morning. a person of interest in a deadly hit-and-run at a famous california boardwalk. one person was killed and 11 others injured when a car sped through the packed venice beach boardwalk last night. witnesses claim the driver and
to hit the gas as he drove through the crowd sending people running for their lives. >> we thought it was a movie because they are constantly shooting movies out here. we thought it was a movie. the guy started barreling down, people started screaming. we parted like the red sea. everybody got out of the way. >> right now police will not say if the person being detained is the driver. one person is still in critical condition. rescue crews are waiting for daylight to really resume their search for a snowboarder possibly buried alive in oregon. the snowboarder was going through an ice tunnel on mount hood when it collapsed on top of him. he was with five other people who tried to dig him out but couldn't reap him. rescuers are using chainsaws in the slushy conditions, but it is hard for them. you don't mess with kid rock. michigan police say they arrested a 43-year-old man who tried to break in north of
detroit wednesday. these are surveillance pictures of the suspect taken from kid rock's house. the suspect clearly not going to let it stop minimum from getting inside. he used a white van. the rocker posted a description on the website and is offering a $5,000 reward. new information overnight. there was no winner in the $300 million jackpot. check your tickets. $400 million for wednesday's drawing. still well below the record $590 million jackpot won by a florida woman in may. the odds are matching all six numbers are 1 in 175.2 million. >> the only time i play is when it's up around like $300 mill n million. >> a good shot of winning. >> it's worse. >> what a rip off. all right. rick, he's right there. what's happening?
>> only when it gets up to $400 million. i'm glad nobody won the $300 million, now we can play and win. >> i'm glad nobody won, too. >> 40 degrees in minnesota. it is cold there. a big cool pocket of air, moving across the great lakes to the northeast. a very nice morning if you want to get outside and do some exercise this morning it's absolutely spectacular. warm across the south, 83 as you're waking up across parts of texas. a beautiful clear day across the east. this is a big problem. overnight five inches of rain in hutchison kansas. that's caused very significant flooding. all of that in two hours. you get that rainfall quickly and flooding. you can take a look, almost the entire state of kansas filled with rain, panhandle of texas and oklahoma where we need the rain. across the west, dry, more rain across parts of southeastern arizona. this is a look at this cool pocket of air. take a look where we generally should be, mostly into the 80s. chicago today only getting 74
degrees, cleveland 72, new york around 80. much cooler air moving in around northeastern great lakes again. guys? guys? >> why thank you, rick. >> thank you, rick. 11 minutes after the hour now. next on the rundown of "fox & friends," following breaking news, u.s. closing embassies in the middle east. are we folding in the face of terror. a fox news analyst is here to analyze. the running of the bulls could come to a city near you in america. we'll tell you where and why and why some are saying not so fast.
could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. yep, everybody knows that. well, did you know some owls aren't that wise? don't forget i'm having brunch with meghan tomorrow. who? meghan, my coworker. who? seriously? you've met her like three times. who?

so it was no surprise when he set out to give the world the hardest-working, best-smelling cleaners he could. like mr. clean with the scent of gain. that combines irresistible scent and powerful cleaning. and his lemon-scented anti-bacterial spray that kills 99.9% of bacteria. people sure loved having something that smelled as great as it cleaned. that's why when it comes to clean, there's only one mr. world as president obama
celebrates his 52nd birthday. today marks the final stretch of ramadan. what role does timing play in the terror threat. terror unless here, thanks for joining us. do you see any connection between the president's birthday and ramadan, is there a connection? >> those would know who read the e-mail. there's a small circle inside who read the e-mail, congress, we in the private sector can only speculate about the origin, width of this operation. to me when 22 embassies are shut down it means they either have very specific information about one or two embassies or they don't have specific information. what they know is there will be
an attack during that time. therefore timing is important. from the three you mentioned probably the end of ramadan would be the closest to consider. >> what message does the shuttering of those 22 consulates send to al qaeda? >> i don't have the information about that e-mail that tells us, i can only project the following. if you're shutting down 22 or so embassies because of an al qaeda possible attack, al qaeda would need 800 to 1200 operatives to attack all these embassies. do we really have specific information or only have a trend. i would answer the question by saying no matter the result not an overwhelming attack of the embassies, al qaeda will win the day. al qaeda by forcing us to shut down the embassies will consider it a win. their website will say just by giving that information to the
americans, they shut down all these embassies. >> one thing we can gather from the information, in a huge swath of the world, literally in the center of the earth, we are clearly despised by people who want to kill us. does that surprise you given the president's assurances that he had al qaeda on the run, his outreach to the islamic world was cooling tensions? >> well, look, the statement that we have al qaeda on the run basically is met with fact on the ground. al qaeda has never been that strong, that large in terms of it's operations. we were fighting al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan, now it's in yemen, somalia, four or five countries. it's now back into iraq and syria and lets not forget benghazi. al qaeda is much larger than before. i don't believe it's on the run. i believe one thing, the policy we have tried to implement in the middle east including
partnering with the islamist movement, including muslim brotherhood in cairo has back fired. what the people are doing now, they are bringing down the islamist regime. i don't think our policy that worked over the past three to four years. >> turns out it wasn't as simple as be nice and they will love us? >> no, it can't be that way. those who are attacking us, al qaeda and joddist are not going on the parameters of being nice or not being nice, they have an ideology. whoever is the president, members of congress, they will continue to attack the united states and our allies. more importantly people on the ground in the middle east. they will impose -- that's the program. nice or not, that would be the real goal at the end of the day. >> not surprising al qaeda has metastasized at the end of the ? >> not really. the recruitment process has been ongoing. what we have refused to do, the add metroplex is touch the ideology. the only place we should really
have attacked seriously idea logically we did not, therefore al qaeda is greater numbers than ever before. >> thank you very much. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> overnight a nascar driver injured in a serious crash and taken to the hospital. we have details coming up. the hottest app on the internet and more than a million people downloaded it so far, the bible app. can it replace the holy book? we've got that coming up. i'm checking out the jetta. 34 hwy mpg. check.

wald this morning. you're a pastor in oklahoma. >> that's correct. >> how do you think it's changed the way to read the bible. >> for years people suppressed a desire to read the bible but for decades they haven't been actually reading it. they might bring it to church but not throughout the week. our app is helping millions read the bible every day. we've made it easy to be part of their daily lives because it's on a device they have with them at all times. >> you can grab it. if you're struggling go to the word instead of waiting until night when you fall asleep with your head on the pillow. what special funs besides just having the versus. >> first of all the app is completely free. get it going to bible.com/app. it has the bible available in 600 versions, over 400 languages. allows you to compare versions, switch between them, highlight,
book mark, a lot of functions with the printed bible. one popular is to share versus of the bible on facebook and twitter. you see over 200,000 times a day people are sharing versus online. >> is there an easy way to look at topics. i remember in middle school when we were studying evolution, so-and-so begat so-and-so. for specific topics? >> hundreds of reading plans or daily devotion always. many are topical. if you're looking for something on depression, a particular issue you're going through, you can have a 14-day reading that deals with the one topic. that's very popular. we've had recently 10 million plans get completed by people interested in learning about a particular topic. >> pastor bobby, what do you think about it replacing the bible completely? isn't there something to be said about having pages and turning them. >> many people prefer to do both.
they use app, read in the printed form and like it digitally. i try to tell people it's not replacing the bible, it is the bible, just in a different format. >> any people criticizing it thinking technology doesn't have a place in church. >> any time something new comes, there's always people critical of it. for the most part we've seen pastors and the church as a whole embrace the app and take this generation into god's word. >> take a while for the congregation to realize they are not on facebook or twitter. >> it's very common. >> thank you so much. >> appreciate it. >> 26 minutes after the hour now. a real life hunger games? one summer camp turning the violent movie into a reality for teenagers. we'll explain. you work all year to plan and pay for that perfect vacation. you don't need to book anything before you hear the four golden rules of travel we have coming

and it's not good here in the united states either. >> back when i was younger, i thought about going over and doing this because i thought it looked fun. i've changed my mind. i would never do that. tucker, would you do that? >> that's the point. this is great news for animal rights people. this is the only animal sport where the animal has a shot. you go to a bullfight and some guy is killing it. people get killed. they have a fair shot. the bulls probably look forward to this all year long. >> fifteen people have been killed since '94. not a nice sport. people get injured. a little safer here in the united states, the officials are saying instead of narrow cobblestone streets there's going to be fencing, american way. >> come on. >> is that cheating? >> so it's the nurf version.

who shelled out big bucks for his jersey. he sent a tweet to his fans saying buy a new one on me. here we go again, the white house already has a laundry list of scandals on its hands but ready to tackle yet another. e-mails released last week indicate the federal election commission is involved in the irs tea party targeting fiasco. the will white house call this a phony scandal, too. the american center for law and justice, jordan, thanks a lot for joining us this morning. give us a quick overview of what we know happened with the conservative groups. >> sure. these e-mails were released last week just a few days ago by the house ways and means committee. what the e-mails show, used to be at the federal election commission, head of the enforcement tuition where she started those questions about the content of people's prayers
when she targeted the christian coalition and eventually the christian coalition was found not to have done anything wrong. it was multi-year and thousands of pages of deposition questions including those prayers questions. she goes to the irs. e-mails show as early as 2009, the e-mail references fec official saying several months ago we spoke about and a group of 501 t-4 asking information about whether they were granted status. we're not looking for confidential. if it wasn't confidential they wouldn't ask her, they would find that. they are not exempted, the specific provision. 26 usc 6103 which says you cannot as a federal official in the irs disclose taxpayer information unless. what do you find? no fec in the unless, no exemptions. >> of course not. no more sacred and guarded
information in domestic american life than our tax information. here is another example of it being misused for political reasons. by the way this took place, just to be totally clear, sounds like during the '08 presidential campaign. >> that's right. in fact, tucker, one of the groups, two targeted, one targeted because of an s.e.c. complaint filed by an obama campaign lawyer, literally involving the obama campaign saying we think this group did something wrong so filed the complain. the other complaint came in from the democratic party, farm labor party in minnesota. both have direct connections to actual -- not just progressive or liberal groups but the democratic party or the obama campaign. in these instances, just so everyone is clear, the s.e.c. attorney also looks like they were potentially violating their rules and the law because they are not allowed to launch an investigation until the commissioners have approved one. this was to get -- they were
trying to get more evidence. in fact, one of these groups they tried for over two years. then citizens united came. they tried again to get commissioners to authorize some kind of investigation and they were chastised by the s.e.c., the way the lawyers work. she's got the connection, the head of enforcement from '86 to 2001 and then she moved over to the irs. so these e-mails don't just say this was the only conversation. by the way, her response was in nine minutes to one of the e-mails that said how can we help here. it's not like she said, we can't help. she said how can we help. >> bottom line, then, in the last two presidential elections federal agencies have secretly put their thumb on the scale, in effect, on behalf of the obama campaign. terrifying. >> this is why loislerner took the fifth. she knows that. this is serious. she knows that as someone who spent her career in these
divisions. sharing taxpayer information, it's not just criminal but count eight in our 41 party lawsuit representing in the tea party about this information. this is for real, not phony. >> the most basic kind of violation. thanks a lot, jordan, we appreciate it. >> thanks, tucker. quarterback drew brees under fire on a tip he left for takeout order. you have to tip for take out? apparently. reading e-mails on that question. and used by u.s. military since 1775. that one city says this flag, the one you're looking at must come down because of its political message. the fight for common sense continues next. hi, i'm terry and i have diabetic nerve pain. it's hard to describe, because you have a numbness, but yet you have the pain like thousands of needles sticking in your foot.

welcome back, everybody. a while back we told you about the group of vets in new york fighting for the right to fly a flag back in april. the new rochelle city council deemed that flag, don't trade on me flag, too partisan and offensive to fly over city hall. the removal violates first amendment rights in this respect our nation's heroes. joining us nourks peter with the united veterans memorial and patriot association and their attorney who is with the thomas moore law center. peter, lets start with you. i call it -- i've always called it don't tread on me flag. remind me what it is. by the way thegts they got rid of the american flag because it got damaged in sandy so they have to replace it. why are they against this don't tread on me flag. >> this is gaston flag, the
first of the continental navy and continental marine corps. we did not replace the american flag with this flag. we brought this up the flagpole with a new stars and stripes of the reason why they are politicizing this issue, the mayor has shown his hatred for the military over the years because of the veterans of new rochelle have not agreed with him always. >> peter, you know what i think it is. i've seen that flag a lot at tea party events, they are relating that to the tea party? >> the american flag is at tea party events, too, as well as other flags. you cannot associate it with the tea party. it stands on the own as a flag of military history, armory in new rochelle is a marine corps and naval armory, one of the last in the country and this is a perfect fit for armory in new rochelle. >> what can they do about it? what kind of rights do they
have? >> we have filed a civil rights lawsuit to vindicate their loss of constitutional freedom, because the city has stripped away their ability to display the flag which has tremendous historical significance and great significance to the veterans. they have stripped away the right to have this ability to relay their speech. >> what do we do about it? >> what do we do about it? this is truly remarkable because first and foremost at ush in this lawsuit is the way these veterans are being treated. looking at the united veterans, these are individuals who had to leave their families, who went all around the world to protect our freedom, potentially dying for our freedom. the way the city of new rochelle is treating these individuals by not allowing them to display a historical flag is not only wrong but unconstitutional. we will vindicate this in court to our fullest ability.

[ morty ] i'm listening! i want you to know. from baghdad to bangladesh, closed in the middle east. is this crucial for national security or does it give the terrorists what they want? a fox news alert, overnight an l.a. boardwalk turns into a death trap as an l.a. driver plows his car into a crowd of people. this morning's report said he did it all on purpose. >> mike in for clayton. horror after an implosion goes horribly wrong.
what wasn't supposed to happen when the building came crashing down. "fox & friends" this sunday morning right now. get started with this fox news alert. u.s. embassies around the world on high alert waiting for a terrorist attack that could come at any moment. intelligence officials are reporting terrorists are already in the field waiting for their chance. >> live in washington with the very latest on this story, peter doocy. >> that's right. a plot is under way, which means the terrorists that are set to carry it out have been selected and put in place. now they are just waiting to strike. that's based on a new report by cbs news that expands on what we've been hearing for days that western interests around the
globe are in danger. 22 u.s. embassies and consulates are closed right now. this is why. there's a worldwide travel alert for american citizens in place. this is why. officials know the threat is connected to al qaeda but they don't know what the target is. >> it is more specific. we are taking it seriously, which i think you'd expect us to do. there is a significant threat stream and we're reacting to it. >> dempsey declined to give more details but said americans aren't the only ones in danger and intelligence suggests terrorist are are trying to attack western interests. president obama is celebrating his 52nd birthday at camp david. before he choppered over to the retreat, he played a round of golf. before that he received a full briefing about the latest intel the white house sent yesterday. before departing this morning the president was updated on the potential threat occurring in or emanating from the arabian
peninsula by assistant to the president for homeland security and counter-terrorism lisa monaco. he will continue to be updated through the weekend. we do expect president obama to return to the white house on schedule later today. back to you. >> peter doocy in washington. there you go. we're learning more about these threats. the question is are we learning too much and why are we learning what we're learning? does the white house have a leak problem. some in intel are saying that. a former navy s.e.a.l. we spoke to or "fox & friends" made an interesting point. here is what he said. >> quite frankly, this warning and shutting down all the embassies in all the 21 countries lets them know we're going to have this warning august 4th so why don't we plan it for next week. quite frankly if we're going to harden the embassies we should do that. we don't need to broadcast and maybe get host nations to get more support. all that stuff can be done without announcing it worldwide. >> why do we know all this,
citizens. >> it's showing we're weak. the other thing, how are they going to be the next time there's a tip we need. what if these people are communicating with western intelligence, ended up getting hunted down and killed by militants in that part of the world. >> here is what we can be certain, anything that is leaked from the white house helps the white house. this the lesson of the killing of osama bin laden. we learned details. the president acknowledging seal team six infuriating people in the middle of that. he did it because it's in the middle of a campaign. benghazi, people forced to sign nondisclosure and given polygraph. these guys leak when it suits them and cloaks information when it hurts them. entirely political. >> again, why do we know this information? if i was in the intel community i'd be upset. what do you think al qaeda is thinking about this right now? look what we did. even though we didn't blow up
anything, we've shut everything down over a huge swath of the world. isn't that a win. >> i hope viewers have a sense of how broad. western sierra to bangladesh. that isn't a region, multiple regions and multiple continents. >> this is a normal workday for them, too. it's disrupting business there. 22 consulates. >> over thousands of miles in a number of countries. white house saying this is a specific threat. this is a highly general response. basically what we're saying is we are terrified of some indistinct threat. >> that is the point of terrorism. >> exactly the point. >> to live in fear. >> that was a good interview you did about an hour ago. if you missed it, here is a little clip of it. he's basically saying, even though no explosions have happened in the last 24 hours, al qaeda has kind of won. >> if you are shutting down 22 or so embassies because of an al
qaeda possible attack, al qaeda would need 800 to 1200 operatives to attack all these embassies. so do we really have specific information or only have a trend? no matter what the result is, if it's not an overwhelming attack against all these embassies under way, then al qaeda will win the day. because al qaeda by forcing us to shut down these embassies basically will consider it a win. >> we're the united states of america. embassies are american soil. why are we doing this? >> at the same time, this is going to prevent the innocent lives lost, like we lost four in benghazi. is it worth it? >> should you shut them down. >> what should we do? i don't know. >> flip the question around. ask yourself, will shutting down 22 embassies and consulates convince al qaeda to stop their campaign against america and american citizens. >> what do you do specifically? >> probably not. >> if i told ann i was going to break into your house and she
told you, what would you do? >> i'd start crying and lock the door. >> of course. >> you wouldn't leave your house. >> no, i wouldn't. i'd get -- >> all right. we'll continue to follow this story. we're crossing our fingers it's just a threat and there aren't bombs to go off and we don't have blood shed. we want to get to a fox news alert. a boardwalk turned into a horror show after a deadly hit-and-run. police are questioning a person of interest. one person killed and 11 others injured when a car sped through the packed venice beach boardwalk last night. witnesses say the driver and to hit the gas as he drove toward the crowd sending people running for their lives. >> we thought it was a a movie because they are constantly shooting movies. we thought it was a movie and the guy started barreling down. people started screaming and we parted like the red sea. everybody got out of the way. >> right now police will not say the person being detained is the
driver. one person is still in critical condition. in just a few hours, rescue crews will resume their search for a snowboarder possibly buried in oregon alive. the snowboarder was going through an ice tunnel on mount hood when it collapsed on top of him. he was with five other people who really tried to dig him out but couldn't reach him. rescuers were using chainsaws to break through the packed ice but slushy conditions were making it difficult for them. aaron hernandez sending a newler. in it the former new england patriots said he is going nuts without the internet. >> everything happens for a reason. goes on to thank the pen pal for a website suggestion but says i can't check sites. there is no internet in jail. lol. earlier this week hernandez sent a letter proclaiming his innocence in the face of murder charges. drew brees coming under fire for what?
leaving a small tip. a takeout order, $77, $3 tip after the restaurant posted it online. the caption, the owner said this. drew brees must hate america like he hates writing zeros. >> hate america. >> the quarterback firing back on twitter saying, quote, in case anyone still cares about this report, i tipped $3 on a takeout order. if i sat down it would be 20%. brees willern $95 million this season. those are headlines. just because he has that money doesn't mean he has to spread the love for everybody for putting a couple of napkins in the bag for food. >> not for takeout. you should tip big, rich people should really tip big. >> i tip for takeout, not 20%. >> give them a couple bucks. >> they prep it and stick it in there and all that stuff. give some money to the person that put all the food together but delivery boys ought to be
tipped 40%. >> 40? >> i was one. >> 40%? i wish i had your paycheck. >> tough neighborhood. >> i'll deliver a pizza to you right now if you give me 40%. >> you've seen mike row on dirty jobs. i don't know him, apparently you do. i thought he seemed like a good guy. turns out he's not only a good guy but really smart. he made a terrific point on huckabee about our economy. basically had the point that the trades are dying. listen to him. >> we have to make a case for the trades. we have to start with an awareness campaign, a public relations campaign that challenges perceptions and stigmas. 3 million shovel ready jobs you remember from four or five years ago. a great idea. i had a dirty jobber tell me when that was announced, that's going to be a tough sell. you're talking to a country that
no longer has a relationship with the shovel. you have to start at the beginning. i would say lets maybe step back a little bit and have a broader conversation. i'd say $1 trillion in student loans is no joke. i would conclude by suggesting we are lending money we don't have to kids who can't pay it back to train them for jobs that no longer exist. >> that's why so many kids are living with their parents. did you see those parents? 36% of kids between 18 and 3 are living with their mom and dad. >> so depressing. i don't think a 31-year-old qualifies as a kid. >> no. >> when you live with your parents you qualify as a kid, no matter how old. >> so much for our economy doing fantastic. a lot of kids working part-time jobs, multiple part-time jobs or can't find work at all. some of this is cultural, too. the study mentioned kids aren't getting married as early so they don't necessary have roommates help them pay the rent bills. >> it's all cultural. there are jobs actually.
remember katrina devastated new orleans and the city was rebuilt. it was an impoverished city, people out of work. those aren't the people who rebuilt. they brought in immigrant labor. nobody in the city wanted to hang dry wall. >> like he said, we've lost our relationship with the shovel or hammer. a lot of these kids have all this debt, $100,000 debt after they get out of college but they have a degree that does them no good and now they don't have any skills, physical skills. >> if you're in college earning a sociology degree, let me warn you, in case you're incredibly lucky, hit the lotto lucky, you're not going to get a job. >> history degree. >> you can make a lot of money doing trade jobs. the other thing is you can end up saving money if you can fix your car, fix a leak, you don't have to pay somebody to do it. it's a lost art in my generation. fixing a car is a hot commodity.
>> we're sounding anti-college. i'll not anti-college but you better learn some skills. my dad knew how to put furniture together. where he learned that, i have no idea, but i have no skills. >> you can host the heck out of a morning show. >> i can do a food segment. >> eat all the food like you always do. >> coming up, ft. hood shooter nadal hasan finally going to trial for rampage. the sergeant shot six times will testify. he's here next with a message for the jury. >> shocking statistics with the 2 years old for smart phones. are they too young for technology? this is one we want you to weigh in on. back next. you know throughout history,

keep his radical views to himself. they were known to the government, weren't they? >> yes. even as far back as 2007, his peers and co-workers knew that he was radicalized and knew he had some pretty extreme views. obviously the fbi had intercepted e-mails between him and anwar al awlaki. >> and they did what about it? >> absolutely nothing. according to the report, they said it was politically sensitive and refused to interview him or tell the army about it, which hasan was a commissioned officer so he had security clearance. of course he has access to classified information. why they thought that was a good idea, i don't know. >> so when he was shooting at you that terrible day screaming al akbar, it must have been clear to you it was an act of
terror. >> clear. since the shooting happened, the more i learned about him, the more frustrated and angry i've become, how could this guy remain in the military. not only was he incompetent as a so this, he was an incompetent psychiatrist. the government thought it was okay for him to deploy with my unit to afghanistan. >> >> how do you feel when the government insisting this is merely an act of workplace violence. are you insulted by that? >> very insulted. undermines the sacrifice the victims that were killed that day went through. it's an act of terrorism, an act of war. these guys should be recognized for l sacrifice. >> staff sergeant manning a survivor of the attack. thanks. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> kids credited for saving their father's life.

literally. a new report shows tsa misconduct up 27% over the last two years. despite napping, allowing bags to pass by entirely, stealing from passengers and not showing for work at all. what's being done about these miss misbehavior. there are good employees. >> thousands. >> there are people manning these stations, you wonder if they could get a job outside of the u.s. government. what are the standards? >> tsa has turned into huge beaurocracy, 66,000 employees, probably 46, maybe 50,000 screeners. no one knows. some of these people, unfortunately they have hired in washington from ads on the top of pizza boxes, ads on the top of discount gas pumps. >> homeless shelters.
>> i don't know about that. again, they can't recruit. they can't train. they can't maintain a good workforce. we're the only country now, listen to this, romania, bulgaria and poland, the only three western countries that have an all federal screening force. >> the irony as travelers, we're asked to take security very seriously. we have to disrobe, put items in different boxes. >> it's really over the top. >> the burden is on us. yet you're saying the tsa doesn't take it very seriously. they are advertising on pizza boxes. >> the report, what prompted me to look at this, there have been so many meltdowns, honolulu, philadelphia, jfk, newark, down in florida at different airports you've seen the misconduct. gao, look at what's going on. they did. they confirmed our worst suspicions. as you said, there's a 27%
increase, some 9600 infractions, misconduct in the last three years. that's in spite of the testimony we had in our hearing and given from the report that tsa and homeland security put -- they created two offices three years ago to deal with misconduct and ethics and things of that sort. so it's gotten worse rather than better. >> this is a unionized workforce. >> it has turned union. but that's not really the problem. >> if you're really serious about something, delta force has been unionized, s.e.a.l. team 6 unionized, it's too important to unionize. if we were really serious about airport security, why would we have it unionized. >> what you need to do is get tsa into the security business, connecting the dots, getting the right intelligence and translating that into a work model for screeners. >> yes. >> instead, this is a huge human
resources operation, which they can't obviously control. they have spent billions training these people. actually they have trained even more people than they have employed. it's been a failure. we need to get them out of that business, get down to a lean, mean security operation and have got do what it does best and not again try to manage this huge workforce that's out of control. probably even pay them better. listen to this. we're paying a billion -- $1.2 billion for administrators and $1.8, $1.9 billion for screeners. >> unbelievable. you're shaking what little faith i had. congressman from florida, thank you very much. >> good to be with you, tucker. thank you. >> from ex-con to honorary cop, one man's inspirational journey to change his life and the mentor who h do it. plus thrill seekers enjoy the ultimate man versus beast

53 minutes after the hour. i'm anna coy man. he was one of the biggest jewel robbers in the country. after years in prison larry lawton made it his mission to teach youth about the realities of crime. he's being recognized for turning his life around, becoming an honorary member of the st. louis police department. larry joins us along with the lake st. louis police chief. good morning, thanks for xwg
with us here on fox and friends. >> thanks for having us. >> larry, sometimes criminals when they're locked up, they're ready to get out and start committing crimes again. over the 11 years that you're in a federal prison, what clicked with you and said, you know what? i'm going to make a difference in this world. >> in prison you see too many young people coming to prisons. the system doesn't help them. when you get out, you have to feel you can make a difference in this world. it's not about money in this world, it really isn't. i think the chief in his book bring that to light as well. >> i guess you have a lot of great stories to tell, $15 million. unbelievable. poli chief, larry is doing all kinds of bad things. now he's turned his life around. what do you think about all this and what type of message is he sending the the kids that you're so impressed with? >> well, you know, i think it's very important, anna, that we realize that everyone makes
mistakes. larry has done a great job of turning that around and really doing a complete 360, to go from make bad decisions to helping others make good decisions, that's really a message that we want to send to our youth and hopefully make a difference in their lives. >> it's called the reality check program. larry, tell me a little bit about what it is that you mention to the kids that is really clicking with them? >> it's really a credibility issue. the program is built into four parts, what prison is really like, my life, what you're going lose, your family, your kids, and how to avoid and dissolve bad associations. but the real partnership here with police chief mike force and lake st. louis is breaking down the us-against-them mentality a lot of society has with law enforcement. if an ex-con like myself, pretty bad guy can turn it around and be recognized -- not only be recognized, continue to help lake st. louis and police departments across the country to do the right thing, i think
that's important. >> chief force, how important is it to reach kids when they're young, before they start committing crimes. are you hoping maybe other ex-cons will do the same thing? >> well, far too often, anna. we see young people enter the criminal justice system and that churns away. they're in it, back out oift, in it, back out of it, if they can get that message early on and realize. and what mr. lawton brings to this is true credibility. i can sit and tell a kid how bad prison is going to be until i'm blue in the face. but when mr. lawton tells them, he's been there and knows that and brings credibility. >> in all the assemblies, it's great to see the two of you working together. michael and larry, thanks for your time today. >> thank you, anna. >> thanks for having us anna. >> larry will be honored on august 16. 56 minutes after the hour. next on the rundown,

would you do that? not everybody is happy about this. fox and friends on sunday morning continues right now. ♪ starting straight off with this fox news alert at this hour, united states embassies in the middle east are on high alert waiting for a terrorist attack that could come at any moment. intelligence officers are reporting a major plot is already under way. >> we have the latest on this breaking story with peter. >> terrorists affiliated with al qaeda are in place and ready to strike according to cbs news. right now we have no idea what their target is. that's why 22 u.s. embassies and consulates in the middle east and north africa are temporarily closed. that's why there's a worldwide travel alert in place for all americans. but general martin dempsey,
chairman of the joint chiefs of staff says americans aren't the only ones in danger. he told abc news that the threat right now is to western interests. >> it is more specific, and we are taking it seriously which i think you'd expect us to do, yeah. there is a significant threat stream and we're reacting to it. >> dempsey declined to share more details, but he did say that intelligence suggests al qaeda's intent is clear and officials obviously agree. the state department's worldwide travel alert for americans is the first of its kind since the ten-year anniversary of the september 11, 20001 terrorist attacks. meanwhile president obama is celebrating his 52nd birthday at camp david, but before choppering over to his retreat, he was brought up to speed on the latest intel reports. the white house sent this yesterday. quote, before departing this morning, the president was updated on the potential threat occurring in or emanating from the arabian peninsula by
assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism, lisa monaco. he will continue to be updated through the weekend. we expect the president to return to the white house later today. >> thank you, peter. >> i believe everything peter sayings, but it confuses me. the president assured us something very different. to remind any of you who may have forgotten, here is what the president said. >> i said we'd refocus on the people who actually attacked us. today al qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. >> some are concerned that this paints the united states in a way that we're actually weak and folding to the terrorists, that 22 embassies and consulates are closed today. it's a normal day of business there. take a look at this map. it's covered. >> a huge swath of the world right there. >> massive. >> you know, wally ferris was on
the show just after 6:00 and said maybe al qaeda is stronger than it's been in years and years. military people disagreeing with the president saying al qaeda is not on the run. listen to general jack heaton. >> certainly after 9/11 we clearly had al qaeda on the run because we responded to quickly to that threat and intercepted a lot of other threats and killed a bunch of their leaders in the process. they are clearly on the rise and echl boldened by benghazi. that's the harsh truth of it. they did not expect to have the kind of success they had that night. it was extraordinary what they were able to achieve in killing an ambassador, burning the consulate to the ground, killing three others and forcing the evacuation of a cia base. >> that yemen faction is very strong, too, one of the strongest al qaeda factions in the world. if you'll remember -- what's his name, am the leader has
apparently appoint add new person to take over the terrorist network there on the arabian peninsula there. >> certainly not on the run. think about the kind of person who would make a claim in the middle of a presidential campaign right into the camera, we have al qaeda on the run. that's the kind of person who believes his election is single-handedly going to change the balance of power in the world, that compares himself to abraham lincoln. no wise person would say that. >> you've been mentioning this morning that they're putting a feather in their cap, b osama bin laden is dead and we're doing these fantastic things and mentioning news when it is actually helping their reputation around the world and among voters and not mentioning any information when it's going to be harming them. but at the same time, if we had not -- if we didn't know about this travel alert that's going on worldwide, and if these embassies were not closed and
something hamd, then how would we feel? >> i think anyone who is involved in this recognizes the world is really, really dangerous. there are always going to be risks. some people probably are going to get killed. >> going forward. >> the fact is, closing the embassies is not going to close al qaeda. >> you would think, fortify the echl bass sees. first of all, we shouldn't know this in the first place. but fortify them, maybe not close them. >> this is america. we don't cower and run away. apparently we do. >> six minutes after the hour. more headlines to get to. police are questioning a person of interest in a hit-and-run at a famous california boardwalk. one person was killed and 11 others injured when the car you seen sped through the packed venice beach boardwalk yesterday evening. witnesses claim the driver appeared to hit the gas as he drove toward the crowds sending people running for their lives. >> we thought it was a movie, you know, because they're constantly shooting movies and stuff out here.
we thought it was a movie. then the guy just started barreling down. people started screaming and we just parted like the red sea. everybody just got out of the way. >> right now police are not say if the person being detained is the driver. this week the trial of nadal hasan gets under way after he released documents exclusively to fox news channel in which he renounced his u.s. citizenship and confirmed his ties to radical islam. victims say they're appalled that the government continues to characterize the massacre as workplace violence and not terrorism. >> i think it undermines the sacrifice that the victims and those killed that day went through. this was an act of terrorism and, in essence, an act of war. these guys should be recognized for their sacrifice. >> hasan's trial starts on tuesday. also this morning, rescue crews are waiting for daylight to resume their search for a snow border possibly buried
alive. he was with five other people on mount hood who tried to kig him out but couldn't reach him. rescuers were using chainsaws to break through the packed ice, but slushy conditions making did for them. major league baseball will reportedly suspend alex rodriguez the rest of see son and all of next season, this for his alleged connection to a miami clinic that sold performance-enhancing drugs. reports surfaced earlier in the week the two sides were working on a settlement deal. those talks now reportedly off the table. this as the defiant slugger a-rod proclaiming himself ready to rejoin the yankees on the road. >> i'm playing in chicago. i'm flying to chicago. can't wait to see my teammates. i feel like i have can hem us win and i haven't seen my brothers in a long time. >> mlb expected to announce rodriguez's punishment tomorrow. a-rod's attorneys have said he will appeal any suspension.
boy, is it a beautiful day in new york city. >> it is. >> temperate, too. >> here is rick. >> beautiful and temperattemper. heb how hot it was for that streech. >> it was awful. could barely breeze. >> i would take the three weeks of hot weather to have this nice stretch now. good trade. it's been spectacular across a lot of the great lakes and the northeast. temperatures well below averages. looks like the pattern will continue for a while. take a look at the werth maps and show you what is going on for your day today. across the east, another nice one. we'll see showers pop up across the southeast. the big problem with rain is across areas of kansas with with very heavy rain falling overnight. up to five inches in a couple hours. that's pulling to the east. they saw a lot of o rain yesterday. big problems there. down across the southwest where we've been seeing the monsoonal activity, take a look at this video out of arizona. this is on the arizona-utah
border at lake powell. there's a slot canyon canned antelope canyon, you get rain maybe 10, 15 miles away from the canyon and the water funnels into it. major flooding there. this is from friday. this sin credible. it's spectacular country but can be very dangerous when you get this kind of flash flooding going through. spectacular video, but very scary as well. looking at that water, you a con i don't know about 200 feet deep. that con i don't know completely filled with water. back to you. >> that is amazing. that is amazing. >> wild. >> you see the dry river beds all through out the west. you never imagine there's water in them. >> it does not go into the ground. it just runs off. >> exactly right. a little bit of europe coming to the united states. the running of the bulls. a century's long tradition of spain is coming to the united states. thousands are signing up. >> expected to start on august 24th in richmond, virginia and
go to several other states, georgia, texas, florida, california, minnesota, illinois and california. not everybody is happy about it. >> what you're telling me is this scene will be played out in the united states of america. i like tucker's take on this. wouldn't deer hunting be more interesting if the deers were armed. you're saying the bulls have been waiting for this for years to fight back. >> i'm saying peta and the rest of the animal rights world is totally off base. this is a bull-empowering experience. contrast this to a bull fight in which a short man from spain goes and tortures bulls with the help of his drunken buddies and calls himself the hero. the bull inevitably die. in this the people die. he's got horns. again and again and again people get gored. it's the fayest fight among the animal kingdom and i'm saying has strong support among bulls.
>> we put this on our e-mail account here. by the way, it's coming to texas. drew knows about it. if peta has any objections to an american version of the running of the bulls, all they need to do is form a line and give the cute bulls a lecture on empowerment and the refusal to be exploited for commercial gain. any survivors can tell us how it went. >> think about -- contrast this to what a bull normally does. he sits around in a pen waiting to be made into hamburger. >> but he's also 'em preg nating -- >> he is, that's right. >> the cows love it when you gore people. he grows back in the pasture after running with the humans, he's a hero. >> a little different in the united states than in spain. the bull is not going to die at the end. also, you saw the very narrow cobblestone streets there. not done that way. there's going to be fencing that blocks the area off and have
notches where people can escape. >> that's pathetic. we're better than that, america. if spain can have a risky bull-running sport, so can we. we don't have a nerf version. >> tucker, i think i know what you want. you want these bulls running down 6th avenue. >> i do. >> i know you do. i'm pro bull. >> mayor bloomberg. an al qaeda terror threat and u.s. embassies shut down around the world. fox news sunday's chris wallace weighs in on the foreign policy decision next. the man who tried to rob kid rock arrested. first kid has a message for the young guy. wait till you hear what the rocker had to say. that's next. ♪ [ male announcer ] a car that can actually see like a human

a fox news alert, 22 u.s. embassies shut down. come to think about it, we're in august now. this is about a year after the benghazi attack. >> well, this decision has subjected the obama administration to the wave of criticism it didn't do enough to protect the consulate and the people inside in benghazi. is the complete closure of 'em bass e zoos sending the wrong message. chris wallace joins us to help answer the question. the white house is assuring us that the threats it received are specific. these facilities go from asia to the western saha rah. how specific could the threats be if the response is so general? >> the intelligence i heard is that it's specific, an attack against western interests, but not the target. maybe in an abundance of caution they're closing them across, as you see, all of the middle east as well as north africa.
you know, there are two views of this. on the one hand, after benghazi and the criticism that the administration didn't do enough, you can understand that they would be very concerned and not want to expose u.s. diplomats less than a year later, as you point out. on the other hand, there is some criticism whether it's an overreaction, whether it, in a sense, shows the u.s. is in retreat in that part of the world. there have been other sips of that, of course, the fact we're not doing much in the civil war in syria, our declining influence in egypt. this just adds to that perception, that the u.s. has not planted the flag and has a strong presence in that part of the world. >> you can go halfway between the world and not telling everybody we're closing and just fortify them more, chris. >> yes. i would say a couple of things in that regard. you can't fortify them -- in the end our putting marines in these places, the point has never been
that that would keep it from some kind of a staged attack. the host country is responsible for protecting our facilities around the world. the marines are just there for kind of an immediate last wall of defense, but they're not there to, as i say, against a staged attack. again, i can see that the administration is trying to walk a kind of narrow line here on the one hand, they don't want a repeat of benghazi. as long as we're talking about retreat, the fact that the people who perpetrated benghazi, 11 months later and still not sage person has been brought to justice. they don't want another repeat of that. on the other hand, you're right. it does send a message of some weakness. >> chris, talk a little bit about that message. aren't the jihadists winning even if there is no destruction or bloodshed? look what's happening to our embassies in that part of the world. >> let's wait and see. they're closed for a day. let's see how long they're closed. i will say it's interesting that
other country, britain, for instance, have closed their diplomatic facility in yemen and there have been signs that, at least some indications that the real target is inside yemen. of course, the perpetrator is supposed to be al qaeda in yemen. again, you wonder why 22 embassies and consulates around the world. you have people in the white house saying we got criticized for not doing enough, now we're going to do too much. >> general to remind everybody, general michael hayden will be on chris's show, former director of the ci. and representative justin amash will be on there as well. by the way, charlize therrien is also going to be on there. wow, chris, home run there. 20 minutes after the hour. coming up on "fox and friends" another high dollar jewelry heist just say days after thieves made off with $200 million in the same place. we have details next. denzel washington and mark
time for your news weather numbers. first $53,000 in jewelry. that's how much thieves stole from a hotel in the french riviera. sound familiar? this is the third heist in a region. last week in cannes robbers got away with $136 million in jewelry, right in the middle of the day next 93%, that's the loss "new york times" took when it sold "the boston globe." remember "the times" bought "the

president obama laying out his jobs plan in chattanooga, tennessee last week. one columnist didn't think much of it. he wrote a headline called "take your jobs plan and shove it, mr. president, your hole sees have harmed chattanooga enough." the article of that article finds himself fired. drew johnson was fired due to a policy that he says didn't exist until after he wrote the policy. >> thanks for having me. >> you write this piece. you had been writing a column for some time, conservative in nature. you write this piece about obama directly and what happened? >> well, ultimately i was fired. the claim was that i changed the headline inappropriately, but i followed a very standard procedure. they changed the policy about
how our headlines were written after i wrote the piece. i was fired for violating the policy that wasn't if place. when it comes down to it, it was all really the content of the headline and the fact i wrote an anti-obama headline on the day the president was in town. >> so the editor who fired you, did you get any indication from this person of the response? did this person say we received complaints, i'm firing you? >> they said that they did receive complaints about the headline which was based on a johnny paycheck song that everybody certainly around here knows. if quoting johnny paycheck is wrong, i certainly don't want to be right. they got some pushback. the reason they hired me was to write these conservative, free-market, limited government editorials. oftentimes that will get phone calls. but in this case there's a double standard with obama where if people complain about obama, the media just over reacts. >> that's for sure. so what did you say when you got
fired? did you fight it? >> well, i did. i said the policy that you're claiming i violated wasn't in place until the day after i wrote the piece. it's impossible to violate a policy that's not in place. but they didn't seem very receptive to that. so now it's off to a job hunt i guess. >> so what do you think it is? what is it about obama that turns reporters and editors and basically all of journalism just weak-kneed? >> i've been through this before actually. i was the guy who exposed al gore's utility bills are 20 times higher than the average american. it's the same sort of thing where this person is like this cult, almost a prophet, almost a religious figure, and if you dare say anything against him, then the media way overreacts. i think with obama, he's got so many fans and fan ms. the media that the media does all they can
to make sure nobody embarrasses them. >> the irony is, of course, isn't the press supposed to be the watch dog keeping honest those in power? shouldn't they be the last people who are sucking up to people in authority like obama? >> and the thing about it is, tucker, i was hired as the editorial page editor of a conservative editorial page, a conservative opinion page. so certainly that was right in line with what i was hired to do. so even expressing the conservative values that are supposed to be on that page apparently aren't allowed anymore. >> what a shame. it's a good paper, too. i used to work for a sibling paper. drew, thanks for coming on. >> thanks for having me. kids credited for saving their father's life. >> i told mommy, mommy call 911, daddy is bleeding. it's not normal. >> the quick-thinking actions they took in the middle of a very scary situation. "time" magazine causing controversy with its latest
cover encouraging couples to go, quote, childfree." are they sending the right message or a selfish and stupid one? a debate coming up. where is flo? anybody know where flo is? are you flo? yes. is this the thing you gave my husband? well, yeah, yes. the "name your price" tool. you tell us the price you want to pay, and we give you a range of options to choose from. careful, though -- that kind of power can go to your head. that explains a lot. yo, buddy! i got this. gimme one, gimme one, gimme one! the power of the "name your price" tool. only from progressive.
so, i was over at the train station and saw this "time" magazine cover. we've got to talk about this. the latest cover of "time" magazine stirring up controversy with that headline, "the childfree life: when having it all means not having children." and the accompanying article suggests that a growing number of couples are choosing not to have kids in order to pursue their careers and hobbies, and
ultimately, lead a more fulfilling life. is that the right message? joining us now for a fair and balanced debate, the creator of mamasaid.net, jan singer. hi, jan. >> hi. >> and mother of five and author of "girl at the end of the world," elizabeth ester. elizabeth, let's start with you. what do you think when you saw the "time" magazine cover and then read the article? >> well, i thought it definitely signals a significant cultural shift in our society. there was a time when self-sacrifice used to be the preeminent virtue. apparently, now self-gratification and pursuing -- i'm curious what living a fulfilled life means when you're actively choosing not to have children, because my life is so fulfilled. my children are the most important part of my life, and i can't imagine -- i wouldn't be
the person i am today without them. >> yeah. >> i think if you're choosing not to have children in order to pursue something noble, to singlemindedly devote yourself to curing cancer or a religious vocation or praying around the clock, that is wonderful, but to have more child-free vacations on the beach, i think that's definitely sending the wrong message. >> jen, i've got to get your response. you have two teenagers, right? >> i have two teenage boys, and of course, they're the light of my life, and all of their friends come over and eat everything out of my pantry, but i don't think that pushing what works for me on other people is necessarily the way to go. i mean, not being a parent means not having to see "smurfs 2," to start with. >> okay, that's a blessing. but hold on a second, i mean, elizabeth, if i choose not to have kids, does that make me creepy or something? >> it doesn't make you creepy, and i don't think it makes you selfish. i think that your motives are important, and i think it's also sort of immature to sort of
expect that having it all means getting to sort of have a perpetual adolescence throughout your life and be a 40-year-old lounging on the beach. really, the only reason we can have this conversation is because our parents had children, and the only reason they can lounge around on the beach is because their parents had children. this is not a sustainable philosophy. >> well, jen, i will tell you, i'm glad i had my two daughters, because it changed my life, probably saved my life! who knows what i'd be doing if i didn't have any kids. i wouldn't have slowed down at all. so, why do you think this magazine article is written now? are we going through some kind of transition to leading childless marriages? >> certainly, there is a trend toward this, or it wouldn't be in the magazine article, but you know, the assumption that the only way you can affect a child's life is by giving birth to them is incorrect. you could be a soccer coach, you could be a teacher, you could be a great aunt or uncle. there are other ways to affect
children's lives than giving birth to them. >> elizabeth? >> well, i definitely agree with that, but i don't think that that is what the article and especially the cover, the message the cover is giving. the cover is giving a, you can have a self-indulgent life laying around on the white sand beaches with no one to take care of yourself, and thank god the people bringing you your mai ties, their parents had children, and the people cleaning the hotel you're staying in, their parents had children, but for you to be laying around on the beach, that's fine. >> you know, mother teresa didn't have any kids. i'll just leave it there. thank you both. a shocking misdiagnosis of als before one man realized what was really making him sick. it was chronic lyme disease. his wife is here to share their story and what you need to do to protect yourself and your kids. plus, time is running out on a-rod, apparently. the latest developments in the steroid scandal and when those suspensions will be handed down.

"fox & friends" on this sunday morning, our fourth hour starts right now. ♪ ♪ we do start with a fox news alert this sunday. at this hour, u.s. embassies in the middle east are on high alert, waiting for a terrorist attack that could come at any moment. intelligence officers reporting a major plot is already under way. >> our own peter doocy is live in washington with the very latest on this breaking story. peter? >> reporter: tucker, al qaeda has selected the team of terrorists they want to carry out an attack, and that team is
now in place ready to strike, according to cbs news, but we don't know what their target is. so, that's why 22 u.s. embassies and consulates are now temporarily shut down, and that's why there is a worldwide travel alert in place for all americans for the first time since the ten-year anniversary of the september 11th, 2001, terror attacks. we're hearing now from the chairman of the joint chiefs, general martin dempsey, that this threat is al qaeda affiliated. he also told abc news that al qaeda's intent seems clear. >> it is more specific, and we are taking it seriously, which i think you'd expect us to do. yeah, there is a significant threat stream, and we're reacting to it. >> reporter: dempsey didn't many more details, but the administration says the preeminent site of the attack is the middle east or africa and that americans aren't the only ones in danger. western interests in general should be on high alert.
meanwhile, president obama was briefed on the latest intel yesterday before he left for camp david to celebrate his 52nd birthday. the white house passed this along. "before departing this morning, the president was updated on the potential threat occurring in or emanating from the arabian peninsula by assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism lisa monaco. he will continue to be updated through the weekend." and we expect president obama to leave camp david and return to the white house later today. back to you. >> that's a lot of info. should we know all of that? thanks, peter. should we know all of that? >> good question. >> that's another thing we're talking about this morning, and reportedly, the intelligence community is upset about the administration leaking so much information. so, what could happen is, potentially, the sources that gave us that information might be hunted down and killed by militants and then it would be tough for us to get information about this the next time around. we've talked to a former navy s.e.a.l. yesterday on "fox & friends," and here's what he had to say. >> quite frankly, this warning,
shutting down all the embassies in all the 21 countries, it just lets them know, hey, we're going to have this warning on august 4th, so why don't we just plan it for next week, basically? but quite frankly, if we're going to harden the embassies, we should just do that. we don't have to broadcast it that we're going to be hardening the embassies and reinforcing them and maybe giving the host nations to give more support as well. all that can be done without announcing it worldwide. >> yeah, the white house releases information when it suits them politically. in the middle of the last presidential campaign, osama bin laden gets killed, they tell us more than has ever been told publicly about s.e.a.l. team 6, infuriating the people actually on the team that killed bin laden. when the benghazi tragedy occurs, they don't want the information to be disseminated, so they polygraph cia officers who were on the ground to keep that information locked down. so, anything they're releasing you know helps them with voters, they believe. >> and you know al qaeda members are watching broadcasts like this and seeing that map, saying look what we did. >> thinking they've won again. >> a whole swath of the world. so, how are they feeling? would it embolden them if we
shut down all of the embassies, 22? you know, we talked to wally ferris in our 6:00 hour and this is what he had to say. is it a win for al qaeda? >> if you are shutting down 22 or so embassies because of an al qaeda possible attack, al qaeda would need 1,200 operatives to shut down the embassies. so, do we have a threat or a trend? if it's not an overwhelming attack on all the embassies under way, then al qaeda will win the day, because al qaeda, by forcing us to shut down these embassies, basically-consider it as a win. >> and you know what, we're going to talk to somebody who's a defense expert in the next block, so ten minutes away, and i'm going to ask him what we could have done instead, because the obama administration really has been under fire about everything, the fallout, the cover-up following benghazi, or what appears to be a cover-up, but the events leading up to it
as well. so, you can see why they're issuing the world travel alert and closing the embassies, but what maybe could we have done instead to send a different message to the terrorists? >> think of how our lives have changed since 9/11, the things we've given up, the federal government looking at your e-mail, your phone calls, taking your clothes off at the airport, closing the embassies. we've made an awful lot of -- >> i've mumbled that about every two minutes. >> that's right. >> i understand why we have to do it, i guess, but what, 15,000 flights every day in the united states, and we're all going through those lines? and i just mumble to myself, did they win? >> well, it's true! it's true! that may sound slightrite, but actually true. >> it's true. >> every time you modify your life in a little way, every time you give up your civil liberties, they are winning. >> but this faction in yemen has been responsible for three thwarted bombings on airliners. so, you know what? if i have to take off my shoes
and my belt, i'm willing to do it. >> well, it's up to you, but still, it irks me. >> give us your thoughts on that. what do you think? we have more headlines. a fox news alert, california's famous boardwalk turns into a horror show after a deadly hit-and-run. police are questioning a person of interest. one person was killed and 11 injured when the car sped through the boardwalk last night. witnesses say the driver appeared to hit the gas driving towards the crowds, sending people running for their lives. >> we thought it was a movie, you know? because they're constantly shooting movies and stuff out here. we thought it was a movie. then the guy just started barreling down, people started screaming and we just parted like the red sea. everybody just got out of the way. >> right now police will not say if the person being detained is the driver. one person is still in critical condition. hassan rowhani was officially being sworn in as new

a-rod's attorneys have said he will appeal any suspension. >> boy, if they suspend him for all of this year and all of next year, he's 40 years old then, when he would come back. >> yeah. what would happen to him? >> i don't know. would he retire? he has the money to do it. speaking of having the money to retire, our own rick. >> i almost want to walk away like i have enough money to retire. i don't, so i'll stay, how about that? look at the weather maps, guys. we have a lo of rain this morning across areas of kansas, the same area that saw a lot of rain yesterday. and because of that, some big-time flooding concerns. take a look at this video out of emporia, kansas, kind of between kansas city and wichita, kind of right in between the two. the town of about 25,000 people and big-time flooding going through there. they've seen 4 to 5 inches of rain over the last couple of days. there's more rain there this morning, so this flooding is not going anywhere. they've just gotten pounded with rain over the last week. and unfortunately, got to tell
you, there's some more there today, and over the next couple of days. we have a front that's kind of stalled out across the area and we'll continue to see these impulses of energy move through, and each day these showers and some of them very heavy rain showers continue through the area. the good part is, i think today the severe weather for that area is gone. in fact, i don't think today we're looking at any kind of real severe weather threat anywhere, not any widespread threat, but we will see a little bit of severe weather. cooler temps around the great lakes. this front has moved through and dropped things down. chicago, today, enjoy it. a spectacular 74 degrees on the lake, a nice one. guys, back to you inside. >> you want to see some television magic right here? >> yeah. >> are you ready? you saw that emporia, kansas, flood footage there. i went to one year in college in emporia, kansas. i was going to be a teacher. thank goodness i didn't get that degree. >> but you were wiped out in a flood? >> no. >> oh. >> our next topic is about college education. see what i mean? i went from flood -- >> magic? abracadabra, let's work on
pulling the rabbit out of the hat. >> not everybody needs a college degree anymore, and i'm not anticollege, but not everybody needs a college degree. some of the kids have $100,000 in debt after they come out of college and have a degree they cannot use and don't have any physical skills, can't use their hands, no shovels, no hammers anymore. >> and worse, the respect for the labor, for the trades is declining. mike row, who hosts "dirty jobs" -- >> love it. >> i think many people do. very smart guy. on "huckabee" this weekend and had this observation. >> we have to make a case for the trades. we have to start with an awareness campaign, a public relations campaign that challenges perceptions and stigmas. 3 million shovel-ready jobs, you remember, from four, five years ago -- >> yeah, yeah. >> it's a great idea, but i had a "dirt jobber" tell me when that was announced, that's going to be a tough sell, because you're talking to a country that no longer has a relationship with the shovel. you've got to start at the beginning. and so, i would say, let's maybe step back a little bit and have
a broader conversation. i'd say $1 trillion in student loans is no joke. and i would conclude by suggesting that we are lending money we don't have to kids who can't pay it back, to train them for jobs that no longer exist. that's nuts. >> you know what, you can make a lot of money doing those trades jobs, and you learn to use both of your hands, which is a lost art for my generation, for sure, and you can save money, too, by fixing your own car and fixing your own leaky faucet or whatever, rather than calling someone to help you out and ladies think it's very attractive when guys know how to do that stuff. >> when's the last time you changed a flat tire. >> my father taught me at 16, and i never had to do it. call aaa. >> call aaa! >> yeah. >> but people won't take those jobs if they believe the jobs are beneath them. the ultimate example of this is katrina. so, the city is destroyed. it's an impoverished city, huge amount of unemployment there, and yet, the people who rebuilt the city were mostly from out of the country. >> that's true. >> they had to import labor to
rebuild new orleans while the population of new orleans remained jobless. >> and when you're in debt -- >> what is that telling you? >> -- when you come out of college and have a degree you can't use? you go back and live with mom and dad. 36% of people between the age of 18 and all the way up into the 30s are living back with their parents. >> yeah, so much for a recovery. a lot of these kids, whether they can't find work or possibly they have a part-time job or they're piecing part-time jobs to make it work, you know, that's one of the reasons. but the study is also saying it's also because kids are getting married later. >> yeah. >> so you know, it's a lot easier when you have two incomes to pay your rent. >> and the demographic trend in europe is coming true here. awful. scare on the slopes. the latest on a desperate search for a snowboarder buried alive by a school bus-size chunk of ice. plus, shocking, new statistics about the number of 2-year-olds with smartphones. are they too young for technology? we'll read some of your thoughts next. ♪ excuse me, sir

well, across the middle east today, 22 of our embassies and consulates are closed out of fear of a possible terror attack, but many are asking will this decision only make us look weak to our enemies? joining us now, lieutenant colonel schaffer from washington. colonel, thanks a lot for coming on. >> thanks. >> what is the message this decision sends? >> well, it's one that's not good. there are two things here. it's called asymmetric warfare. it appears to me that al qaeda has been able to essentially push our buttons in such a way to make us close, now, think about this, 21 embassies. we have not done this, carl, since right after the 9/11 attacks. now, i have a hard time believing that we are now facing a global threat to a level that we had to close 20 embassies. second point. when you do this sort of thing, it indicates to me that we are not outside the wire out there going into this.
and peter king said this is the most specific threat he's seen in a long time. we should be having people like me and dave hunt out going into these guys, preventing, derailing these acts ahead of time. and so, again, this is all the wrong signals at the very right time for al qaeda to appear to be, first off, bigger than it probably is, and frankly, it shows that we are hunkering down, not conducting offensive operations to get into their systems to prevent them from doing this sort of thing. >> but people keep saying it's a specific threat. >> right. >> if that is true -- >> exactly. >> -- we are closing facilities thousands of miles apart, you know, close to two dozen of them. that's not specific at all. >> that's my point. >> this is an incredibly generalized response. >> exactly. so, if it is specific, you weigh into it, you prevent it, you do everything you can to protect the life. and the other thing is that we have to actually work with the local countries. think about this, every country we're talking about here should have their counterterrorism forces out there with us trying
to prevent this. so, again, something is dreadfully wrong here that we're announcing this, somehow, al qaeda's ahead of us in 20 countries and we're unable to get ahead of them. it does not bode well for us this far into the war on terror. >> it doesn't, and it does suggest that the president's description of al qaeda being "on the run," wrong. >> absolutely. and when you look at al qaeda and the islamic maghreb and al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, they're coming back. it's not the same as 2000 and 2001, a centralized company, if you will. it's been franchised. many of the elements of al qaeda are seeking to destabilize the governments that support us in the middle east, which makes our job far more difficult, as reflected right now in this current threat warning. that said, we need to change our tactics to get inside of how they're planning to do things as quickly as possible, and we're not doing that. >> lieutenant colonel terry shaffer join us from washington, d.c., thank you. >> thank you. a shocking misdiagnosis of

[ female announcer ] if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. welcome back, everybody. listen closely to this. jim young was completely healthy and starting a wonderful family when he was given a devastating diagnosis of als, or lou gehrig's disease. it wasn't until about two years later that he realized that was a misdiagnosis.
what was really making him sick was actually chronic lyme disease, which he is still battling today. lyme disease is something a lot of people don't know much about, and it's the peak season for ticks. that's how you get it, from ticks. so, here to tell us what you need to know to protect your family is dr. erica cosell. she is jim's wife, as a matter of fact, and the author of "miracles for daddy" and an associate professor of biology. welcome. >> thank you so much. >> my goodness, how is your husband? >> he is hanging in there, but i'll have to tell you, he's really struggling. it's been a hard battle for us over the course of many years. >> how bad is it for him right now? >> right now he is unable to walk on his own. he's unable to breathe on his own. and most people just are flabbergasted when they realize this was all from a tick bite, or in his case, probably many tick bites. >> and lyme disease named after lyme, connecticut, as i remember -- >> that is correct. >> where they first diagnosed
this problem. i think people say, lyme disease, oh, you can get over that pretty easily. that is absolutely not right. what exactly is lyme disease? >> so, ticks will carry a bacteria, and the bacteria can be inserted into the body when the tick is feeding on the host. and that bacteria can be okay if you catch it early with two to four weeks of antibiotics, but if it goes undetected, that's when you have problems. so, the bacteria, of course, can under go binary fission, clone themselves, then they can hide in cysts. they can put biofoam over themselves so it fools your immune system, so your immune system doesn't realize that's a problem. >> horrible. a lot of people get it when camping. a tick will fall out of a tree into their hair. your husband got it -- he loves to play golf, right? >> that's right. >> got it on a golf course? >> many times comes back with tick bites from the golf course, even just in our backyard, and we live in a suburb of raleigh, north carolina. >> and not just in your hair. you can get them anywhere on
your body. >> no. actually, my mother-in-law was walking her dog and came back with one behind her knee from just walking the dog. >> we popped one on the screen there, and people say, it's easy to diagnose. well, look at this misdiagnosis here. that's a myth, isn't it? >> very much so. so, part of the problem is that there are, in the united states, over 100 strains of the lyme bacteria. worldwide, there's 300 strains. and you have a serological test that most physicians rely on that isn't very sensitive and it's for many strains. and the test most physicians will give folks is the eliza test, and it's not very sensitive. then there's other tests, the western blot is better, but most people don't get that. >> yeah, yeah. >> and even that has problems. >> well, you say jim has chronic lyme. i've heard people say there's no such thing. >> that's right. i could not disagree more. if you go into the scientific literature, you find since the
1980s good, documented research showing that there is such a thing as chronic lyme. so, for example, with the dog and the mouse model -- they have many studies showing that after three to six months of antibiotics, the lyme is still present in those animals. >> yeah. >> in humans, they have shown there was kind of a real well-known case in the scientific world from, i think it was 1994, maybe 1995, where there was about 165 lyme patients who after six months of oral antibiotics still had lyme conditions, and they relapsed into their problems. >> because it's named after lyme, connecticut, and i'm so happy you're here, because i always thought the ticks that carry it are mostly in the northeastern part of the united states, but you tell me there are cases of lyme disease in all 50 states? >> all 50 states. >> alaska, hawaii? what? >> well, the other thing that's amazing is that scientists are beginning to realize that the problem is so bad, four times as
likely or four times as prevalent, i should say, as hiv. and getting more and more difficult to diagnose. and with all of the sort of chunking of property and all these new little developments -- >> oh, yeah. >> -- it brings you closer with deer and mice. mice do really great in fragmented environments, and that's the problem. >> here's another one that's important, if you don't have a rash -- well, i don't have a rash, i don't have lyme disease -- that is a myth, too, so remember that. what can you do? give us a couple tips to keep ourselves safe. >> the first thing that's really important is any time you go outside, do a little tick check. it's just rub your hands through your hair, rub your hands over your body, just know your bodwell enough to realize, you know, that's not a freckle, because these ticks can be exceptionally small. >> but you're right, you have to look, because you could have a tick in your hair eating away at your scalp and you can't even feel it. >> that's right. again, behind your knees, usually places where you'd sweat a lot. so, where your socks meet your body, where your waistband meets
your body, behind your ears. >> like mosquitos. >> very much, yes. they tend to be attracted to folks who tend to be mosquito vectors or magnets will also be probably more prone to tick. >> i'm glad jim is married to a doctor. >> oh, thank you. >> please give our best to him, okay? >> thank you. i really appreciate that. >> thank you, doctor. good luck. >> thank you. ft. hood shooter nidal hasan finally going on trial tuesday. this week for the 2009 rampage. still labeled workplace violence? a sergeant shot six times that day will testify. his message to the jury, next. plus, check out this tricked-out "transformer" truck on the plaidsza. from the movie screen to 48th street in midtown manhattan. get this, a self-taught mechanic built that himself. you'll meet him and we'll get in the car. ♪

you've done something bad? that is the false gospel. it is not the gospel of jesus christ. the second reason is this. there are a lot of pastors out there, and i hope these guys aren't doing this, i don't know that it is, but there are guys out there who say if you send me your $30, god will bless you. now, maybe god will bless that person, but it will be in spite of that false gospel, not because of it. does that make sense? that is wrong to do. we don't know that god will definitely bless you, mike, if you give me $30, but if you want to give me -- no, just kidding. >> or even $50. >> but it seems like every me church has a message about tithing. >> absolutely. >> like give 10% and god will bless you 100 fold. i've heard that. is there a problem with that question, too? >> it's a fine line. it's a great question. i have no problem at all asking for money for good purposes, but i need to ask myself, am i benefiting from this? and am i using the word of god to get something that i want?

hi, katrina. >> hi. how are you? >> is now the time to buy? i call it -- it's not a boiling market. it's percolating a little bit. there's some positives. >> mm-hmm. there are. the real estate market is doing phenomenally well. there's certainly many reasons for that. one is we still have a huge lack of inventory. the reason for that is because a lot of builders have not been building for a very long time. a lot of homeowners have been under water on their homes. so they've been hesitant to put the home on the market. >> they're scared. >> but -- absolutely. but now, people are also concerned. they ask me, what about interest rates? interest rates are still relatively low compared to historical standards. we're at 4.31%. a lot of buyers are actually wanting to jump into the market because they're afraid they're going to continue to go up. but it really is a seller's market. a year ago i would have said if you were looking for a property, you could bid between $20,000 to
$30,000 under asking price. now what we're seeing, we're seeing bidding wars again. which quite honestly i did not expect. we're seeing them nationwide because of the lack of inventory and because of the buyers wanting to get into the market. >> also another thing -- >> i'm sorry. go ahead. >> you said they're holding on to homes for three years now, too. >> yes. that's another thing. before there was a lot of bottom feeding occurring from investors. they were buying the properties. they were flipping them. now it's the real home buyer. they're holding them for at least three years. >> i want to sell a condo that i have. i've been watching all these reality shows about real estate people like you. now you have one. i like it. it's called "hot listings miami." here's a taste. then i want to talk to you about it. >> when you're part of the campins team, everything needs to be topnotch. we can't afford to have any mistakes. the landscaping is -- >> i just noticed all those
