want its picture taken? >> the winner is the giraffe with over 57% of the vote. the horses second and the slap third. >> thank you all for responding and have a great weekend, folks. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. bye-bye. >> good morning everybody. actually the teleprompter says thursday but i have a sneaking suspicion that it's tgif! all right. fantastic. i haven't been here for a lot of fridays. i hope you have a great friday. charlie daniels is here. he's going to be here talking to us, i don't know if he'll be fiddling. support fading fast for the president's man to strike in syria. in fact, even the press starting to push back. a tense briefing at the state department as the president promises to continue to move forward. >>steve: new backlash against senator mccain voters explode at a town
hall in phoenix as he argues for larger military intervention in syria. it's something he was not expecting to hear. but he got an ear full. >>brian: is this the scariest job interview of all time? intersrupted -- interrupted by armageddon? "fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ ♪ >>brian: who scheduled the g-20 summit now? >>steve: during armageddon? that story is hilarious because it shows you how technology has changed so that television -- that guy who is going through a job interview actually thinks that is just a window outside but it is a brand-new lg tv with fantastic reception. >>gretchen: it is like a trend to try to scare
people during commercials. the japanese, remember they had the dinosaur chasing after that guy? remember in the video. that same dinosaur has been right here on "fox & friends." >>steve: it has been. >>gretchen: it scared the jeebers out of maria. >>steve: she saw the dinosaur put its head on. >>brian: the first time you see mickey mouse take its head off. >>gretchen: you can't say that. they don't allow that. let's do your headlines. all eyes will be on former new england patriot aaron hernandez when he's arraigned at 2 p.m. in massachusetts. hernandez charged with first-degree murder and firearms charges. he has been held in jail without bail.
a brooklyn man died when a remote controlled helicopter sliced him in the head. friend say he had a lot of experience with the model, the model he was flying had blade speeds up to 250 miles per hour. new court documents revealing more incriminating evidence against the two teens accused of beating a world war ii vet to death in washington state. police say the suspects' fingerprints were found inside the victim's car where he was killed. the teens will be arraigned next week. they face murder charges. >> shocking sight for people at an airport in houston. they watched a southwest jet take off with its cargo door wide open several minutes into the flight. the indicator light came on then. the pilot decided that was the time to turn around. no one was hurt. no word on why the door
wasn't closed before takeoff and why it was allowed to take off when the door was open. remember the good old days when you would hop in the back and sit backwards. >>brian: right. then they did this thing called a safety test. that might as well be a catapult for children to launch out of the car. we have a fox news alert. a senior pentagon official telling fox news the situation in syria is so fluid military officials revised their battle plans 50 times. >>steve: joining us from washington with the latest is elizabeth prahn. >> as the plans shift the department of defense is remaining adamant there will be no boots on the ground in syria and we will work with allies despite reports of a possible planning plan of the syrian opposition in jordan. >> we have conducted planning on this issue, chemical weapons used in syria with allies for some time, to include turkey,
israel, the jordanians and others and not prepared to discuss the specifics of what they may or may not do in the context of prospective military operations against the assad regime, but wet closely with them. >> one senior u.s. defense official says the possibility of also using air assets is also part of the range of options presented to the president. that could include b-52 and b-2 bombers. basically that means it's a longer and larger strike than earlier anticipated. it could last for days. this while the president attend the g-20 summit in russia. there is also activity here on the hill as to future congressional involvement. the senate foreign relations committee did pass a resolution on wednesday but other lawmakers in the house say they still don't think that proposal is the right answer. >> it's completely against this resolution. it always has been against this resolution. now the media is starting to report that. people here listen to their
constituents. first of all, public opinion is entirely against it. secondly, public opinion is vehemently against it. >> we do have new information for you. the "wall street journal" is citing intercepted iranian communications threatening a retaliation attack against the u.s. interests in baghdad should the u.s. carry out any military strikes in syria. obviously a lot more to come on this story. >>brian: you thought there might have been disarray in the battle plan. then it turns out the president is personally changing it. >>steve: 50 times. >>brian: he having to revitalize the battle plan. the syrians also moved their stuff around into malls and civilian areas. >>gretchen: we speculated they would do that when someone was releasing the details of what the plan might be. that is what they are going to do is move their stuff around. one of the reasons they might be changing this 50
times is not just because the president appears to be dithering with his decision but who the heck are these syrian rebels? now reports are coming out that they're talking about using chemical weapons if in fact they get into power and that they are not so nice and to be trusted as john mccain has said now that we should trust them. could that be why we're changing the game plan so many times? >>steve: there is video floating around that shows the rebels talk about how they have used chemical weapons in the past. and that comes on the heels of the fact that the "new york times" ran this story yesterday showing these rebels who we're going to help supposedly assassinating a number of government soldiers. john kerry went to capitol hill and said the extremists are why we must strike syria now because if we don't there will be more extremists. so you've got to vote no. so he's admitting they are extremists. and they have estimated, the administration, between 15% and 25% of them are
extremists, the rebels. the worry is do we, the united states, want to be al qaeda's air force? >>brian: that is what dennis cues -- dennis kucinich said. dianne feinstein said we know assad's forces have struck between 11 and 15 times. they were doing little attacks to see the wherein world's reaction. we have done nothing. so they go for the big attack and are waiting to see if we do anything. if you count hand or noses, as they say, in the house, they're not close to having enough votes to pass. you talk about humiliating, the obama administration's hope of doing anything for the next three years fail if they fail. >>gretchen: the important point on that whole thing is it is not just republicans. there are plenty of democrats who are also not in favor. there are mostly democrats. so that's an important
point to point out is that it's not just falling on party lines. keep in mind, a lot of these senators and whomever are up for reelection. they are going home and having town hall meetings and by four to one, five to one, six to one, their constituents are saying they don't want to do that. they are in a bind. >>steve: we're going to talk to people who were at a e'twaun meeting who surprised john mccain. there are members of the mainstream media, a reporter at the state department yesterday essentially asked a tough question for a change. the question was this: why is john kerry going around saying that the president was courageous in asking congress to authorize the strike on syria? courageous? kwraeupblgs? -- courageous? >> a spine removal op procedure at the white house over the weekend?
i don't understand. how is this courageous? >> matt, obviously the president has the authority to act without the cooperation of congress, but the president and the secretary strongly agreed that when the administration and the people's representatives stand together that strengthens our case. >>steve: she didn't answer the case. >>brian: this is what is happening. the senate, if they are not going to get 60 votes if they pass it. in the house it is not close. nancy pelosi, leader of the democrats in the house, says i'll vote for it i think, but i wish the case was stronger. and i refuse to put any pressure on fellow democrats. so if this thing falls, does the president go forward and attack any way? then this whole thing has been a charade we've been covering for the last ten days, a debate that might as well have been spitting into the wind which is not a good thing if you're a young child. it goes back in your face. here's the thing.
>>gretchen: you need goggles? >>brian: the other thing is too john mccain, who has been a huge supporter of the rebels because he's been there action like so many others -- been there like so many others haven't, he says i'm going to have a town hall and i think he got a bit of a surprise in tucson. >> i just said at the beginning of my remarks that we will respect everyone's view. and if you wait -- >> you don't respect our view. >> why are we not taking care of our own people? 85% of u.s. citizens do not want this third war. >> i cannot fix their home. >> you cannot come into my house and fix my home unless i fix it myself. how can america go into someone else's home to fix it? >> when we ignore events around the world that take place, they sooner or later come home to the doorstep of america. >>steve: and it went on
like that for awhile. peggy noonan has a great editorial in the pages of the "wall street journal." >>brian: because she's from massapequa. >>steve: the item is why america is saying no to syria and obama. wrong time, wrong place, wrong plan, wrong man. >>gretchen: coming up, for on syrian i can't with dennis kucinich. >>brian: there is a lot to worry about on a job interview like what to say and what to wear. but how about how to act when the world seems to be coming to an end? ♪ ♪ ♪ before mike could see his banking and investing accounts on one page...

>> there are about 70,000 to 100,000 oppositionists, about somewhere maybe 15% to 25% might be in one group or another who are what we would deem to be bad guys. there is a real moderate opposition that exists. >>brian: secretary of state john kerry under fire from lawmakers concerned a strike in syria would be the same as aiding al qaeda. our next guest says that's exactly what we would be doing and what u.s. action could spark, world war 3 if we do it. joining us former presidential candidate dennis kucinich. democrats are leaving the president''s side it seems in the house. he's not going to have 60 votes to get a majority. if you were there, how would you vote? >> i would be leading the charge against this war. look at where we are.
we're approaching commemoration of 9/11 which drew us into a war against al qaeda, and we're about to help al qaeda take over syria and create more regional problems and problems for the whole world? right now al qaeda is attacking christian villages. there were some things on fox yesterday about that. they're executing people who are captives. this is a moment which calls for clear thinking on the part of congress. but the american people are already clearly understanding what's going on. we're being rushed into war without sufficient proof, and it's not in the national interest. you're going to put another war on a credit card. we're already in debt. we've got budget problems. what is this all about? that is the question people are asking everywhere. >>brian: assad has been an enemy of the u.s. for decades now. they have american blood on their hands with the iraqi insurgency.
you know if it wasn't for syria hezbollah would not be thriving, perhaps wouldn't have blown up our marines in 1983. regardless, syria has it coming to them. however, to your point there is a percentage of the rebels that are al qaeda and chemical weapons have been used against whoever the rebels are. do we just allow people to use chemical weapons and say we're tired of war? >> wait a minute. we don't want -- there's already reports out there that the rebels have used chemical weapons. let me just back up a minute. if anyone says syria has it coming to them and that's like one of the arguments that's coming out of washington, the syrian people have already been involved in a civil war at the loss of life. we're going to compound that, we would be injecting ourselves into a civil war with the leading edge of the civil war being al qaeda and we would be helping al qaeda knock over a country which, by the
way, for all the faults of that government -- and there are many -- it's a secular government. they have found a way to have different and diverse religious groups exist without killing each other. >>brian: that's true. in 30 years, as you know, the father of assad killed people when they decided to rise up. that is one way to keep them in line. >> i'm not for killing anybody. >>brian: you can't cloud syria's background. they hardly were a smooth-running machine before. >> you're looking at the guy who led the effort to try to stop us from going into war in iraq because they didn't make the case; okay? they haven't made the case to the american people. >>brian: that is true. >> this is about america. this is about us first. it's not about all the bad guys around the world. there are plenty of bad guys around the world. we can spend the rest of the american budget fighting bad guys around
the world. we've got to stand up for america and do what's right for america. >>brian: the president is getting urged by everybody to make a prime time address and explain it all. you have a lot of people on your side finally. if the president does not get the votes in the congress and bombs any way, where are we as a country? >> first of all, we don't need a speech. we need the truth. this manner of selling a war is unfortunate. and if the president, despite congress's disapproval and the american people certainly don't want this war, if the congress votes against it and the president goes forward with a war any way, we're looking at a constitutional crisis, the likes of which we have not seen in the united states and where a president would act in defiance of the congress as direct representatives of the people. i don't know if we're going to get to that. but i will tell you this, the effort to try to sell this war is in and of itself worthy of
inspection. the american people know when something stinks, and this stinks. >>brian: congressman, thank you for your opinion. we'll find out how this plays out. straight ahead, wonder what your kids are learning in college ivy league schools? college credit? we'll tell you what it at 100 calories, not all food choices add up. some are giant. some not so giant. when managing your weight, bigger is always better. ♪ ho ho ho ♪ green giant humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems.

>>steve: wonder what our kids are learning in college? 15 universities including some ivy league schools, are offering college credit to students who will inject feminist thinking into the popular website wikipedia. we have a reporter for campusreform.org with more on the storming with wikipedia project. whose idea is this? >> an organization of feminist scholars set this up to have students be actually assigned to inject bias of feminism into wikipedia articles about technology. what that would look like, i don't really know. in 1870's alexander graham bell invented the telephone. a woman would have done it first but she was stuck in the kitchen. >>steve: you're being funny but they are serious?
>> they are serious. we're always reporting on liberal bias on college campuses. usually it is more than a course to actually inject liberal bias in what are supposed to be articles. >>steve: you talk about how they're injecting their personal bias into these articles which are, you know, i hate to say it, but wikipedia is widely quoted because a lot of people are lazy. as we demonstrated yesterday on this show, we said go on wikipedia and change our posts. people did, completely made up. and so the worry is that stuff in wikipedia is not accurate. >> they're more concerned about making it politically correct than factually correct. this is what our students at ivy league universities are learning to do. this is the opposite of what they should be taught. >>steve: why do you think universities -- and we're talking about some big schools: yale, penn state, places like that. why would they be involved in a program like this?
>> incredibly popular. feminism is incredibly popular. i would say if they were approached about it and said no they would be seen as sexist. to teach students just because something is done by males that automatically means it is sexist, that is an unfound argument. >>steve: if people tried to put feminist thinking into an article and it is accurate, you're okay with that, aren't you? >> i guess but it's factual technical articles about technology. i don't understand how exactly you could enter feminism and social justice into these factual articles. >>steve: good point. if this was -- if any other subject aside from feminism was -- do you think there would be outrage? >> there would be outrage. imagine if a conservative group was saying they were going to do this. there would be absolute outrage. especially on our college campuses there is so much liberal bias and it is
being taught as a fact. we have professors making students feel uncomfortable for being conservative. this is a new low. >>steve: they are not only teaching it, now you can get credit for it. catherine thank you very much. from campusreform.org. what do you think? e-mail us. coming up, there is a lot of crazy video on-line but this one is going to leave you speechless. a man confesses to killing another man with a soundtrack behind him. here's what not to do on live television: give out your personal cell phone did it. hoda did it. wait till you see how much people called her up. too late, kathie lee. ♪ ♪ mine was earned in djibouti, africa. 2004.

own surgical equipment. they don't rent it. you do not see it very often. the issue here with this kind of disease, even if you sterilize the surgical equipment you don't necessarily get rid of it. that is the concern. it is something called the pryon disease. we all have them in our brain. they can mutate and they can become something that is contagious. most of the time that change occurs spontaneously, like a mutation, 85% of the time. 15% of the time it is inherited. it is rare to get it from surgical equipment like this. >>steve: usually what they do is they realize somebody has that disease, they throw all the stuff away? >> absolutely. there is 300 cases a year of this. rarely does it spread like this. you're operating on the brain. it is something called spongeform which means under a microscope it looks like a sponge. i don't want to go into too

class. this is the way he started off the day? >> yeah, pretty much, just about ten, 15 minutes. really they're supposed to go over a brief overview of the class and let us out. but then he just started going off. >> gretchen: this is an eight-minute rant, william penn, a highly touted professor there. why did you decide to start recording it? >> i really couldn't believe it was happening at first. i knew i couldn't -- this kind of hate speech was -- i couldn't allow this to go on, especially when students are paying thousands of dollars to learn about literature, they shouldn't have to sit through a political rant day in and day out, no matter ha their political beliefs are. >> gretchen: to me, it went farther than just a political rant. he attacked mitt romney and ann romney and the gop in general. he said they were racist. he talked about racism and how republicans don't like black people. did he also attack christians and athletes? >> not to my knowledge, no.
>> gretchen: because there is another account of a young woman who was sitting in the front row and apparently she frowned during his rant and then he started talking about her and saying that if she want add better grade in the class, she should stop frowning. did you hear that? >> not that -- if she wanted a better grade, no, i didn't. >> gretchen: you have gone on record as saying that you actually have written some of your papers with a more liberal slant because you believe you'll get a better grade? >> yes. that's true. just one or two. i've only -- this is start of my sophomore year. so i haven't been writing papers in college for too long. >> gretchen: but evan, isn't that dispinting in your own heart if you don't believe that? >> it's a sign of the times, i suppose. i shouldn't have to, but that's where we're at. >> gretchen: so this professor has now been taken away from his teaching duties. there's a statement, his student
teaching duties have been taken away. he's still being paid. do you think that's appropriate? >> i'm glad the university has decided to take action on this, although i certainly don't think -- this this is all there is, i don't think this is enough action. i think they need to take firmer action because it's really -- if this is all there is, this is the easiest punishment for somebody, for what they said, this is the easiest punishment i think anybody ever received. >> gretchen: you got to wonder how much else this is going on at universities, if this is just one slice of the pie. evan, thanks for bringing it to our attention. all the best in the coming year at school. >> thank you. >> gretchen: wow. what do you think about that story? do you have other examples of that? let us know. coming up, the president's biggest problem on syria, has fellow democrats. but you may not be hearing about that. we'll tell you why. plus, need a date? go to this guy. but would you respond to a

"fox & friends" hour two for friday starts right now. >> gretchen: good morning, everybody. are people deatherring -- >> steve: they're changing all of our wickipedia pages. i would like to apologize for that string of cattle rustling i was part of. according to somebody else, we're running for president. i'm going to run for president. you will be my running mate in 2016. doesn't say what party. i would imagine tupperware. >> brian: absolutely. that's the only way you can get tupperware is to have a party. >> gretchen: is that still the case? >> brian: right. my mom had such a successful party, two lawn chairs. we used them for 20 years. >> steve: fantastic. still have them?
>> brian: well, she had to get rid of them because in the middle -- >> gretchen: what story is this? this is what i'm going to miss most are the brian stories. >> brian: all true. what happened is it's impossible to clean the middle. there were little strings that went around and after a while, it's like -- >> gretchen: i thought you were talking about tupperware. >> brian: we still have that. >> steve: he's talking about the premiums his mother got for selling so much. >> brian: it's a family victory. >> steve: your mom is watching right now? >> brian: wherever she works all her leftovers are fresh. >> steve: thanks to tupperware. just burp it out. >> brian: exactly. >> gretchen: let's get right to your headlines because all eyes now are going to be on former new england patriot aaron hernandez today as he's arraigned on murder and gun charges. this will happen at 2:00 p.m. eastern. it will be in fall river superior court in massachusetts. hernandez charged with first-degree murder, firearms charges stemming from the shooting of odin lloyd. that was his friend.
horrible story, a brooklyn teen has died. he was killed when his remote control helicopter struck him in the head. a witness says 19-year-old roman lost control of the chopper and then he was sliced by the blades of it. friends say he had a lot of experience with this model. he even had a youtube channel dedicated to his flights. the model he was flying had blade speeds up to 250 miles per hour. new court documents revealing more incriminating evidence against two teens accused of beating the world war ii veteran to death. the suspects' fingerprints were found inside and outside the man's car where he was killed. the two 16-year-olds will be arraigned next week. they face murder charges. they are going to be tried as adults. look at the shocking sight. imagine you're watching the airport in houston. people there watched a southwest jet take off with its cargo door wide open. several minutes into the flight, the indicator light came on just then. the pilot turned around. no one was hurt and no word on why the door wasn't closed.
forget the internet. one man using chicago's busiest interstate to find a little smooch. businessman gordon angle dropped $5,000 on this massive billboard that says, i'm gordon. let's have dinner. he bought it after getting frustrated with on-line dating. so far he's had 20 solid applications. can we get a tight shot of that? i guess not. what else does it say? does it say to go to a web site and not his phone number? >> steve: if he wants to attract professional truckers, stuff like that, gordon has found his market. good luck, gordon. >> brian: for us, let's think of bigger things. a news alert. the he pentagon official telling fox news the situation in syria is so fluid, military officials have revised their plans 50 times on behest of the president and his staff. joining us from washington, elizabeth prann. hey, elizabeth. >> good morning. the more we learn about a possible strike, the more we
learn of shifting scenarios. reportedly up to 50 times. one defense official says they're now looking into using air assets that could include b-52 and b 2 bombers. that mean it could be a longer strike than earlier anticipated. as the plans do shift, the department of defense remains adamant there will be no boots on the ground. >> i'm not getting into specific planning. we're not contemplating boots on the ground in syria. i will say to this section of the audience, there are no plans for boots on the ground when it comes to military operations that we're contemplating right now. there are no boots on the ground plans right now. >> this along the same time we're hearing reports of a possible training plan for syrian opposition in jordan. the pentagon says the training of the rebels is not part of any limited air strikes being
considered. but how much is this all going to cost? defense secretary hagel said this week the cost could be in the tens of millions of dollars. but the chief of naval operations, whose ships would be called to carry out limited strikes, is advertising a different price tag. >> a carrier strike group operating out there will cost you in extended operations, i'm talking about a lot of flying going on as opposed to routine flying. will cost you about $40 million a week. if it isn't flying that much, routine, it's about $25 million a week. >> officials are wary of any consequences. the "wall street journal" is citing iranian communications threatening retaliation attacks against any u.s. interest in baghdad should the u.s. carry out any military strikes in syria. gretchen, steve, brian, back to you. >> steve: thank you. pay back. one of the president's other problems is with his own party.
there are many, i would say a majority of democrats in the u.s. house that simply do not want to go along with what the president is suggesting. alan grayson, who was relie detectorred to congress from florida, not long ago, says that the intel that the administration is presenting has been manipulated so that we will go to war. so i guess he wants the syrian resolution to die quickly. also code pink is lining up against the president. move on.org is lining up against the president. vote vets.org lining up against the president. they don't want what the president wants this time. >> gretchen: the interesting analysis is that maybe the president's plan during the midterm elections to get people elected that were not blue dog democrats, the more conservative democrats. he wanted them more to the left democrats. maybe that's going to bite him in the butt now because it's the people who are more far to the left who don't want to go to war at all and have been following the lead from behind foreign policy. so now you have people like
grayson and others. then you have more moderates in the senate, like senator joe manchin and another from north dakota, they don't want to do it either. he has a huge problem. >> brian: let's add in chris murphy and tom udall. do you know what they have in common? they're democrats. why aren't people coming out and saying his president is having problems with his own party? why is that so hard for people to understand? the people pushing hardest for it is john mccain and senator lindsey graham. what party are they from? they're republicans! the president jammed health care down everybody's throats. he jammed regulation down everybody's throats and the stimulus and he got blow back in the midterm elections and he could possibly lose the senate. what will be left of his presidency should he lose this vote and bomb anyway? what will be left if he loses both and sits there and says, well, i can't get congressional support, so i won't do anything?
>> dennis kucinich, who i believe is a democrat, is a fox news contributor. we debated the whole syrian issue. >> i'm not for killing anybody. i'm sure not -- >> brian: but you can't cloud syria's background. they were hardly smooth running machine before. >> you're look at the guy who led the effort to try to stop us from going into war in iraq because they didn't make the case. okay? they haven't made the case to the american people. >> brian: that's true. >> this is about america. this is about us first. it's not about all the bad guys around the world. if the congress votes against it and the president goes forward with the war anyway, we're look at a constitutional crisis the likes of which we have not seen in the united states and where a president would act in defiance of the congress as direct representatives of the people. >> steve: a lot of people are wake up this morning saying, that's what dennis kucinich thinks? i feel the same way. there are a lot of republicans who say that it would be a
really dumb idea to go ahead with it. >> brian: do you know why republicans are more upset? the ones normally for this are not convinced the president has the right plan text cute it. >> steve: he's had 50 plans! there is no clear strategy. plus, if they're going to -- if they're just trying to teach him a lesson, okay, we send over 165 tomahawk, what do we do the next day? there is no follow-up? you do a pin prick, it doesn't make sense. things are so dire right now at the white house, joe biden has been called in to the rescue. the white house itself -- >> brian: you could just stop there. >> gretchen: i wasn't quite sure if he was serious or not. i'm waiting to hear what the next line is. >> absolutely. >> steve: joe biden called in a number of democrats into the situation room yesterday, including joe kennedy and al franken, tried to convince them, this is the right thing to do. the white house has also called up at least 125 members of congress, at least 60 u.s.
senators. here is a member of congress, congresswoman eleanor holmes norton. she admitted on the bill press radio show, she's going to vote for this even though she probably doesn't think it's the right thing to do. listen. >> i think it will be because of loyalty of democrats. they just don't want to see him shamed and humiliated on the national scene. >> yeah, right. >> at the moment, that's the only reason i would vote for it if i could vote on it. >> gretchen: i hate to say it, but that's politics and i totally disagree it and i think that's why congress has a dismal approval rating. 10%, 11%, it's for that reason, because people don't feel like they can trust their politicians to act on their behalf. correct? that's proof of it. but it would happen on the other side, too. i hate to say it. >> steve: just remember, brian, you brought up the health care debate where a lot of democrats went along with the president. they weren't sure it would work out and boy, were they right about that. in the implementation and what
happened in the 2010 mid terms? landslide. they had followed the president and he got what he wanted, but a lot of them lost their jobs. what are they going to do this time? right now, i would have to say it looks like it's not going to pass. >> brian: he's going to make a major speech within a couple of days, i think. >> steve: we've heard a loft speeches. >> brian: can the arab league, who was pushing us to do this, can they at least write the checks? can they at least -- >> steve: they've offered. >> brian: can they say, listen, we will pay for you to use your military hardware. if they would do that, that would help the president's case. right now -- >> steve: john kerry made that point. >> gretchen: you got to try and pass it with the american people. one of the things that the president did not do up until this point was just that, trying to tell the american people what his strategy was and why it was so important to do this move. i think many americans are still waiting to hear that. >> steve: plus the world community, united nations should be on board.
they're not. we're in big trouble. kenneth cole, is he in trouble? famous footwear maker, he had this tweet. boots on the ground or not, let's not forget about sandal, pumps and loafers. in other words, he tries to joke about civilian slaughter to sell shoes. >> gretchen: this is not the first time he's done this. if you drive up and down the west side highway here in manhattan, he has billboards all over the place that are very crossing over the line, some would think. they're always political one way or another. >> brian: can you weigh in right now? tweet us. tell us if you think it's inappropriate or is that the ultimate american spirit. take a situation and try to make money off of it. >> gretchen: coming up on our show, big news expected on the jobs front this morning. stuart varney says better expect some presidential spin to make the economy seem stronger. plus -- >> brian: robin thicke blurred lines back in the headlines. it's not for twerking.
>> gretchen: thank goodness before mike could see his banking and investing accounts on one page... before he could easily transfer funds between the two in real time... before he could even think about planning for his daughters' future... mike opened a merrill edge investment account and linked it to his bank of america bank account to help free up plenty of time for the here and now. that's the wonder of streamlined connections. that's merrill edge and bank of america. ♪ [ male announcer ] bob's heart attack didn't come with a warning. today his doctor has him on a bayer aspirin regimen to help reduce the risk of another one. if you've had a heart attack, be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.

part-time work and more than half of these new jobs are in low paid positions. retailing, bartending, hotels, that kind of thing. it's not a positive employment picture we've got now. we've got the numbers that are going to show precisely that in just over an hour's time. >> gretchen: here is what many people believe. i'm wondering if you agree, that we'll only see an increase in this time of part-time employment because many people under obamacare, employers, don't want to face the realities of putting people under health care. >> absolutely right. if you look down the road a ways, you see obamacare coming right at you. if you're an employer, here it comes. you know that if you have a full time worker, you've got to provide health care insurance for that worker. if, however, you have a part-timer, less than 30 hours a week, you don't have to provide health care. that's a big chunk of your cost taken out. so employers are moving rapidly towards employing part-timers,
not full timers. bad news. >> gretchen: is there a silver lining at all in the fact that the weekly numbers have been going down, yesterday it was 123,000? >> that's a positive, no question. 323,000 new jobless claims a week is a pretty good number. that's down trend, consistent down trend that. is, may be, something of a silver lining. but that refers to the layoff rate. that's the number of people who are losing their jobs and claiming benefits. the other side of the coin is what new jobs are being created? there is the bad news and we're going to get more of that today, i suspect. >> gretchen: seems like we're sort of in this holding pattern. you know when you want to land in your airplane? it seems like the economy is in this holding pattern. >> it's not good enough. >> gretchen: we'll be talking to you about it. thanks. have a great show today. catch him 9:20 a.m. on the "fox business" network. did disturbing trend growing among american teens. what they're smoking now and it's totally legal. then she tried everything to

>> i have so much information in my head and i really needed a place -- a show to bring it all out. the problem is that i'm the other end of the baby boomers and i see all my friends, they're getting older. they're having health issues and they're asking simple questions that i can't believe they don't know the answers to. but then i realize the reason i know is because i've been studying this and i love it. so i came to fox and i said i would love to have a show to help women stay healthy, stay relevant, stay sexy. >> gretchen: on that note? >> brian: starting september 7 at 4:00 o'clock. that's tomorrow. >> he tried to ignore me there. >> brian: so many people call me sexy. >> gretchen: he was blushing. maybe that was one of the e-mail questions you get. here is one of the e-mail questions that people want to know the answer to. when is fasting okay and how long should someone do it for? >> the thing is the way you fast
is very important. you need to wean off of food first so you first cut out meat for a at this and then the next day you cut out dairy products and then you are just eating salad and then you start fasting. >> gretchen: extend the torture? >> right. and don't do something that's just sugar. then the torture. gretchen, you almost got that past me. >> gretchen: it sounds like torture. >> it's not really. what happens after the first couple days, you actually start feeling a little more energetic. the first couple days you're lethargic and hungry. by the third day, you're kind of -- i don't suggest doing it longer than five days because -- you don't want to shock the body. >> brian: unless you're at gitmo. then we're not really following up. >> steve: they got great food there. >> brian: here is another e-mail. >> steve: what is the best advice you could offer for pose menopausal women trying to lose weight? >> you know i am a raw foodist and that's the only way i know
to stay slender and energetic and antiages you. that's the side effect. >> steve: raw food. >> it's the easiest way. now it's everywhere. gretchen, you were telling me about a place in connecticut that's become successful. >> gretchen: it has. >> tasty, wonderful food. brian can tell you. >> brian: very true. oliver north wrote this, how can i get rid of that stubborn belly fat. >> gretchen: he did not write that! >> only eat olives. no. the same thing, i think it's all diet. and by the way, they just found out if you exercise five minutes at a time, very intensely, you lose more weight than if you exercise in 45 minutes in a row doing mediocre less intense exercise. >> steve: how much do you exercise in the course of a day? >> you got charlie daniels next. i work out every morning, or three times a week to "devil went down to georgia." >> brian: do you? every morning? >> yeah. i'm a southern rock girl. >> steve: quite an endorsement.

[ laughter ] >> steve: they do. they know a lot. we saw it, gretchen and i saw it
shortly after the after the show show where they did shake hands and it was that grip and grin, for 17 long seconds. >> brian: yeah. they talked about the weather or something, or how nice the palace looked. >> steve: yeah. >> gretchen: maybe the president was trying out a little russian. >> brian: right. the whole syria thing has overwhelmed the whole g-20. they talk about the economy, but they keep debating this. i think putin has more people on his side. >> gretchen: one of the big things, of course, in the last week was whether or not the president would consult with congress about syria and whether or not congress would agree with his policy, whatever that is because it changes from day-to-day. just being honest about that. it changed 50 times with the pentagon in the last couple of weeks. so was going to congress the good thing, the bad thing or was it courageous? that's what secretary of state john kerry has been using that terminology, that it was courageous. yesterday a reporter with the a.p. had a problem with that terminology and he tried to get an answer to his question.
>> is there some kind of spine removal procedure at the white house over the weekend? i don't understand. how is this courageous? >> well, matt, obviously the president has the authority to act without the cooperation of congress, but the president and the secretary strongly agreed that when the administration and the people's representatives stand together, that that strengthens our case. >> steve: it wasn't courageious. it was cya. >> brian: whoever gave him this advice, i think is in a lot of trouble. >> gretchen: wait a minute. people in congress said -- members of congress said, i hope he comes to us to ask us. you can't have it both ways. >> brian: you can't tell congress, i want to vote for it, and then leave them on vacation to barbecue for two weeks. either there is an urgency, get back here and give me a vote, or i'm going overseas and i'm to golf and go to sweden. but when you come back, when you have time, get around to
debating it. meanwhile, they're packing things into people's garages that we would be targeting. alan grayson, there is no reason to go through any procedure. the whip counts are overwhelmingly against. this is from a libertarian who says if you're a goper, hawk, voting yes on military action, you might as well start cleaning out your office. politico says if the vote was today, the president would lose big. if he loses big, no matter what he does, he loses big. >> gretchen: he does. >> brian: not only in syria, everything else. >> gretchen: yeah. we were saying last week the president is in a pickle. this week he's still in a pickle. no matter what -- if congress votes with him, then maybe not so much. but if congress doesn't, what the president will do, may be the biggest so far in the last five years. >> steve: what if congress says no and he doesn't it anyway? >> brian: that's what i'm saying, who ever gave him this advice has a lot of explaining to do.
>> gretchen: aaron hernandez is expected to appear in court and expected to make a new bail request. the first step in an intense legal battle. wfxt reporter is live for us in massachusetts with much more on this story. good morning. >> good morning to you. the arraignment for aaron hernandez is scheduled for 2:00 o'clock this afternoon. this is kind of an important date. this is really kicking off whole trial process. to run through the time line of what's happened so far, june 17 is when odin lloyd's body was found. june 26, when aaron hernandez was arrested. august 23, he was indicted. hernandez was in court exactly a week ago but for a brief hearing. today he will be back here in this courthouse in fall river for his arraignment. a couple of things that could happen today. first of all, the judge may set a tentative date for the trial. we don't know if that will happen are not. it's not required burks it's a possibility. something else that could happen is that there may be another argument made for bail. it's likely any such request would be denied. the argument being, of course,
that hernandez would have the means to be a flight risk. of course, that's just another possibility for what we might expect this afternoon. the courthouse here, they are expecting a large media presence for this arraignment. because of that, they have some very strict guidelines in place. 24 members of the media will be allowed in the actual courtroom. we'll be given wristbands, nontransferable to other members of the media. there will be an overflow courtroom as well. really a lot of attention expected on this arraignment this afternoon, which is once again scheduled for 2:00 o'clock. of course, there will be updates coming from the courthouse at that time. for now live in fall river, massachusetts, back to you guys. >> gretchen: thanks very much. >> brian: we'll see if all this has been a distraction to the patriots as they play football this weekend. the rest of your headlines. we've seen a lot of stuff on-line. the man driving drunk and killing a 61-year-old veteran. watch. >> my name is matthew portal. on june 22, 2013, i hit and
killed vincent kinzani. >> brian: the 22-year-old was considered a suspect in the crash, but had not been charged. he says he made the video because he's ready to take full responsibility for his actions. >> gretchen: there has been a outbreak being linked to a popular bar. 21 people who got the virus either visited or worked at d.j.'s bar and grill in new jersey. they spread through sneezing, coughing or sharing the same cup. >> steve: one man's mission to get his wife a new kidney has finally paid off. 78-year-old larry swimming walked hundreds of miles with a sign saying, need kidney for wife. his wife was born with only one kidney and it recently started to fail. just in time, a virginia woman who saw larry walking with that sign figured out that she would be a match. >> every person that has called,
i appreciate them and more than i can ever tell them. >> i knew it was going to happen 'cause i know him. he wouldn't have stopped 'til he got me one. >> steve: what a husband. if all goes well, the operation will take place next week. good luck. >> brian: i thought i was a big man. i got my wife's car washed before she woke up on saturday. i thought -- i was high fiving everybody. billboards official song of the summer is? ♪ >> brian: robin thicke's "blurred lines." "get lucky," the list cracks the most popular songs based on the weekly hot 100 chart. >> gretchen: those are the three songs my eight-year-old son asked me to download for him.

[ laughter ] >> great job today. happy friday, everyone. let's take a look at the weather conditions across the country because if you live in the northeast, as you head out early this morning, you'll notice something and that is that a cold front moved through, leaving behind much cooler temperatures across the region. lower humidity. it's feeling a little more like october than the month of september. even some freeze warnings in effect and frost advisories across interior sections of the northeast. some of you have temperatures
this morning in the 30s. a little unusual, a little early in the season. otherwise across the corridor, highs in the 70s. farther west, we have a large area of high pressure. this system is producing some very hot temperatures. take a look at some of these highs. in rapid city, you're expecting a high temperature at 98 degrees. 99 over in the city of dallas. farther west in phoenix, also a hot day. triple digit heat. in la, 91 for your high temperature. southern california, also on the hot side. across the pacific northwest, we have a number of advisories out because we're talking flooding and possible severe weather. let's head back inside. >> steve: they'll be lucky when it stops doing that. u.s. they have. >> brian: coming up straight ahead, forget the golf cart. look at this. the future of getting around the green. not as social as a cart. >> gretchen: we're flipping over these dogs. the winners of "america's got talent" and they're performing live on the plaza. >> steve: first the aflac question of the day. bornen this day in 1929, this

shooting of odin lloyd. new overnight, a representative for ariel castro's family claiming his body two days after he hung himself with a sheet in his prison cell. he was sentenced last month to life in prison, plus 1,000 years for holding three women captive in his home for a decade. a brooklyn teen has been killed when his remote control helicopter struck him in the head. a witness says 19-year-old roman lost control of the chopper. he was sliced by the blade. friends say he had a lot of experience with the models. he even had a youtube channel dedicated to the flights. the model has blade speeds up to 250 miles per hour. historic night kicks off the nfl season. peyton manning and the denver broncos hosting the baltimore ravens. but the ravens defense forgot to show up. manning somehow -- he did something that hasn't been done since 1969. threw seven touchdown passes, the sixth player to ever do it. they blow out the ravens.
>> brian: i thought he had at least two touchdown catches. he looked awesome. they both look like they're 25 years old. 5' 9, 180 pounds, i think. >> why did the patriots let him go? n they couldn't afford him. there might have been some bad blood with belichick. we'll have to see. thank you for joining us, geraldo. >> steve: sit down. >> gretchen: your car is outside. >> steve: we've got a fox news alert. u.s. orders diplomats to leave lebanon as congress debates syrian military strikes. we also learned this morning that apparently the president of the united states considered 50 revisions since he announced that there could be a limited strike on syria involving b-2s and perhaps b-52s flown from the united states. also there would be tomahawks launched from the warships in the eastern mediterranean. i was listening to geraldo's
radio show yesterday and you said you had a big announcement. i was listening and it sounded like it troubled you, but you do not agree with the president of the united states on action in syria. >> i absolutely do not. i think that this is fraught with peril for the united states. we are picking sides in a civil war where we have no strategic interest in one side or the other prevailing. the rebels are as rife with monsters as the bad guys. they are al-qaeda fighting hezbollah. why are we picking a side? we're going to commit the united states military? and you hear this mission creep, you hear first it was going to be the tomahawk missile, now they're talking b-2s and stealth bombers and b-52s and american g.i.s will be into iing those aircraft. this is committing to us a civil war where we don't want either side to win. >> brian: the other side is very different people. general keane says the rebels
are mostly rebels that we can get behind. you have senator mccain yelling at us on monday and you also have secretary of state kerry saying that we know who they are and they deserve our support. >> you see that video yesterday of the rebels, the so-called rebels lining up the syrian soldiers they had captured. >> brian: shot them in the head. >> torturing them and then executing them on camera, bald face invoking religious justification for that murder, that assassination? those are the good guys? those are the people we are risking our g.i.'s to help? when they take over, do you think that those seven syrian soldiers are where their butchery will end? there will be a blood bath. this is prolonging this conflict. >> steve: also the rebels have admitted on video that they have used chemical weapons in the past. and there are a lot of people, including putin, who worries
that essentially al-qaeda is getting us to take out assad. al-qaeda is framing assad so we'll be their air force. >> we will be, as ted cruz says, we can not. i don't agree with senator ted cruz on many things, most of them, immigration leading the way. but when he says, when he couches it that way, do we really want to be the air force for al-qaeda, it is very difficult to deny the accuracy of that statement. >> brian: you're not an assad fan, right? >> assad is a murdering pig. he's a person who uses poison gas. >> brian: who fueled the war in iraq. >> you see these children dying from poison gas. it gagged me! it makes my skin crawl. >> gretchen: would you have been in favor of any kind of military action if the mission was to get rid of assad, because some people i think are troubled by the fact that it's a political cover situation because obama said the line last year about the crossing the red line?
>> you know, gretch, there was a moment in time, about two weeks ago, when we first saw that video, when we first discovered what he had done to those children, the moment was then. we had sufficient strength in the mediterranean that we could have gotten maybe only one or it destroyers in place in time, or maybe it could have been a b-2 or b-52. it should have been a short, sharp surgical strike showing our displeasure. >> gretchen: why didn't obama do that? because the mission is creeping. >> gretchen: why didn't he do it? he's done the drones in pakistan and afghanistan. >> because he lost his nerve. he became indecisive. the military said to him, we're not ready yet. let us get this asset, this asset. so hot blood cools. now it is in the sober reflection of the next week or the second week. now you talk to your advisors. well, let's see. we could hit bridge number two. no, hit bridge number three. why don't we hit the airfields?
no, the russians will come and bring in their tractors. now i just ask you one thing, picture this, assad gets hit massively by us. shock and awe. remember that? but we're not going to take him out. we've announced that. so the next day they line up, the syrian, government of assad, they line up 1,000 civilian corpses, killed by the united states air strikes. there is a baby and there is a mother and there is a neighbor and there is this person and that person. and how will we feel then? what have we done -- >> brian: here is the thing, here is the problem with your argument. if you don't want us to attack, that's fine. but you're saying it's okay to have attacked two weeks ago. >> in the moment, in the passion of the moment, it was appropriate. you go like this, i go like that back. you cross that line, okay, there. now it's over. >> brian: do you know what senator feinstein said? they have proof they've used gas 12 to 14 times already.
this was just the most massive display and there is a sense that maybe 70% of the rebels are good and the 25% are on the front of the "new york times." >> when you have a situation where you have 25% who are dedicated, who are trained, who are hardened in war in chechnya and libya and in afghanistan and they are the fighters. we have seen article after article, they will displace those who are less ruthless than themselves. they, as they have in the middle east, will displace those less fanatically islamists, less fanatically anti-western. they will displace those who have the -- talking about the sunni shop keepers and the college educated and the so-called secular elite, those people will fall by the wayside as they always do in the face of the aggression of the real radicals. >> gretchen: i believe that this could be the president's most important decision of his entire presidency. you now have congress that may
vote against this. what will the president of the united states do? >> i am praying, gretchen, that he heeds, he has chosen to go to the congress of the united states. he has put the fate of this mission in the hands of the congress of the united states? le he punted. >> for him, characterize it any way -- let's take him for his word. let's give him all benefit of the doubt and say this was a sincere constitutional move to check -- >> brian: even though he says he doesn't have to. >> having once taken that step and ask congress for authorization to be denied authorization and to go ahead anyway, i think is -- i don't want to overstate it and say it's a constitutional crisis. it will definitely be a historic slight to the constitution of the united states to having gone to -- >> gretchen: i don't think -- >> brian: he doesn't have a tomorrow. he's not going to get immigration. he'll alienate everybody because he's got democrats who don't
want any part of this. if not more by republicans. he can't govern if he goes against the rule. >> i urge the president -- i don't want to be naive. i know the united nations is a dysfunctional body. but this crime was committed against humanity. this was a crime against the world. this was a crime against civilization. we have a united nations to protect civilization against savagery. let's go to the united nations. maybe china will veto. maybe russia will. but at least let us make the case, let's do our due diligence before we take a step that there is no such thing as a sure, sharp hit anymore. >> steve: referred to it as a pin prick. that's crazy. why, though, do you think that in this particular case chemical weapons is suddenly a red line, whereas so many people have been killed by so many other
different methods of warfare? >> you have to draw the line someplace, steve. since world war 1 -- >> steve: the president did not draw the red line. >> yeah, well, he drew the red line. i agree with the red line. i think that society cannot allow -- >> brian: how can you not enforce -- >> it's not our job to be the sole enforcer. the red line is the world's red line. >> brian: we're the only sober people in the world, sadly. >> this is not between us and syria. how did it become us and syria? >> brian: because we sold them all those f-16s. turkey, one -- >> a nato power, turkey borders in this? -- turkey in this? where is jordan? >> gretchen: those are all great points. but what about the people who say, if you let syria get away with this, just playing devil's
advocate -- if you let them get away with this, then that sends a message to north korea and iraq. >> you don't let syria and assad get away from it. you declare him an international fugitive. everyone in his hierarchy is an international war criminal. every member of his family is now an international war criminal. every bank account he has and every bank in this world is now seized by us. we ask his ambassador, we demand his ambassador, get the hell out of this country. you make of them a pariah. you can do it if the world cares so deeply about this, then let the world -- even without committing their military, punish him in a way that -- our military is exhausted. i'm exhausted from covering it. 12 times in iraq. 12 times in afghanistan. i'm done with it now! these soldiers, our marines, airmen, our coast guard and sailors, exhausted! >> steve: we hear you loud and clear. don't do it. give the poor man -- he'll be on
>> brian: with president obama prodding lawmakers to approve a military strike against syria, peter johnson, jr. wonders, do we really know what we're fighting for? the price we could ultimately pay? peter? >> thanks, brian. should you support a president no matter the cost to our country? ask a parent of young american in basic training or service academy whether the code of duty, honor and country requires the spilling of real red blood of their son or daughter for a president's blurry red line. in the blink of a caucus, the shot across the bow strategy a week ago has morphed into syrian regime change by every other name. the holdup of congress will
become closer to a trading has become bizarre. the trading boats for bomb has become divisible. the president who can't stomach america as traffic agents sees america as the globe's robo cops. the attack will be even bigger than first planned. today world leaders, not one of them who will join him in his mission, he looks not in the mirror, but points back to congress that only their credibility is on the line. perhaps hoping the world will forget that when he had the chance to act on his claimed constitutional authority to attack and the moral authority to be outraged, he chose indecision rather than leadership. one congressional representative said yesterday that loyal democrats would only vote for military strike on syria to save their standard bearer shame and humiliation on the national stage. all of us want our country to be seen as strong and restoring the
rights of those who can't help themselves. if pushed hard to the wall, and we will, probably swallow rationality and focus on the vile chemical massacre of innocence as reason enough for action. if we do that, then the shame and humiliation of a president and his personal political disaster will be erased for the moment. unfortunately, every border in the middle east is a red line ready to burst. our red line resolve is not to sacrifice israel for arab support. now the president has called out conduct for which he threatened a response. the truth is that some americans quietly pray that he will choose to offer up his own shame and humiliation in place of america's. in the end americans will stand for america, whatever decision is made. the errors of iraq prove that. but we can only hope that a president who knows americans will sacrifice their lives to
preserve his reputation decides to sacrifice just a little bit of his reputation to preserve the lives of americans to fight another day. if necessary, avenge the real red lines of a perilous middle east. let's think hard whether the president's first mistake will be solved by the president's second and who will pay most dearly for it. brian? >> brian: thanks. well done, peter. ten minutes before the bottom of the hour. senator mccain facing serious backlash about his stance on syria. >> i just said at the beginning of my remarks, sir, that we will respect everyone's view. >> brian: wow. we'll bring you inside his firey town hall in arizona. he has never told anyone before, if you promise to keep it a secret, we will tell you our secret. i told you the promise.

chemical weapons with some saying only the u.n. security council can do that and the russians insisting that syrian rebels are behind the attack. syrian civil war isn't even officially on the agenda here. but president obama has been working the leaders one on one and the side lines of the summit and the talks of the civil war pushed last night's dinner late into the night. so far none of the leaders volunteered support for the president's plan to punish syria, though he says the japanese prime minister supports it. mr. obama is meeting shortly with french president. there is a photo op afterwards that. will give him a chance to vocally support the president's plan. it's said he told president obama, a political solution is the only right way out. russian president putin scheduled to hold a news conference within the next few minutes. he says there is no doubt there was a chemical weapons attack, but he blames syrian rebels and he has sent the u.n. a 100-page
report which he says documents the fact that rebels were behind the attack. russia has vetoed an effort to sanction the attack president obama wants in the u.n. security council. samantha powers says that shows that the security council, there is no viable path forward in the security council. she accuses putin of holding it hostage. back to you. >> steve: thank you very much. live from russia. >> brian: no typical g. 20. this is intense. >> gretchen: the other stories making headlines. senator john mccain facing serious backlash about his stance on syria at a town hall meeting in his home state of arizona. >> you know, i just said at the beginning of my remarks, sir, that we will respect everyone's view and if you wait -- >> you don't respect -- >> gretchen: mccain is part of the senate foreign relations committee that voted in favor of military action against syria earlier this week. he wants more than cruise

part, for 30 years i used my platform in provocative ways to encourage a healthy dialogue about issues. i'm well aware of the risk that come with this approach. if this encourages further awareness and discussion about critical issues, then all the better. by the way, buy my stuff. >> steve: that's right. >> gretchen: there is a lot to worry about in a job interview, what to say, what to wear. but how about the world ending right in front of you in a firey blast?

let's see what you think on twitter. let's take a look at the weather conditions across the country. today is actual lea a beautiful day across the northeast. it is a little bit on the chilly side. feels a little more like winter for some of you, especially across interior sections of the northeast where we do have freeze warnings in effect, or had them early this morning. people waking up to temperatures only in the 30s. along i-95 corridor, not as chilly. we woke up to temperatures in the 50s. by this afternoon, we will be climbing into the low 70s for new york city and also the city of boston. as we head farther west, completely different story across the center of the country and even across parts of the southwestern u.s. where we have a large ridge of high pressure producing a lot of hot temperatures. 98 for your high in rapid city. upper 90s from parts of south dakota all the way down to texas and then low 90s as far west as southern california. a very large area experiencing temperatures in the 90s. not for us in the northeast. a little bit more on the chilly side. let's head back inside. >> steve: thank you very much. >> brian: now let's go to the
stock exchange for more on the fox business alert we told you about. to be specific, steve did. the new monthly unemployment rate for august is 7.3%. you don't believe me, do you? ask nicole petallides. she know what is it means for americans and she knows that number is correct or not, right, nicole? >> right. i'm going to go ahead and say ding, ding, ding, you totally got it right. we know you only tell the truth pertaining to the numbers. we've been seeing the jobless numbers, or in this case, jobs added. fewer than expected. ultimately the jobs picture has been not a great one. it's been improving over the years, but the truth is, you are seeing people hired back at jobs that are at a lower wage and in many case, part-time jobs because companies are deliberate and not hiring full time workers because of the administration's health care program. that's the truth. >> steve: one of the troubling details, when you get past the
numbers, 7.3, people will see that and go, it's a really good thing. also it says the participation rate, the proportion of people who are working is now at the lowest rate it has been in 35 years. some of those are baby boomers retiring. but others simply have given up. >> steve, you're so right. that labor force participation rate is at 63.2%. 35 year mark. it basically says people are dropping out of the work force totally and that's why we see that unemployment rate drop down to 7.3%. it doesn't mean that people are cheering and got so many great jobs. on the contrary. you had stuart varney, he told you. we're 2 million short number of jobs of where we were prior to the recession in the bush era years and people are getting lower paying jobs. >> brian: if you missed stuart varney's appearance, we have a home copy. we'll mail a dvd to your house. fantasy football, big night if you had peyton manning. the broncos win and gets revenge

the kitchen. hardwood floors, crown molding, a coffered ceiling in the bedroom. >> steve: it sounds like you want to buy it n let's all move there. it's great. this is going to cost you about $1,100 a month. >> steve: okay. next up, let's go down to austin, texas, one of the most wonderful cities in america. nice house can cost you $210,000. tell us about this one. >> this one, they are also the unemployment rate is down to 5.6. this is another really good house. this is only 210. it's three bedrooms, three baths, about 1700 square feet. it's got a big open floor plan, full remodeled kitchen, really huge backyard, mature trees, wrap around porch. again, great curb appeal. going to cost $1,100 a month. >> steve: all right. and finally, perhaps the greatest investor of all time is warren buffet, he lives in omaha, nebraska. with deals like this, you can

brown: on my third day as principal, i met with the state. students had fallen behind, and morale was low. my first job was getting everyone to believe... that we could turn this around. i needed my staff to see what was possible. turning around a school, is not some, mystical, magical thing. it does take hard, dedicated work each day. i was a chemistry major in college, and then... i joined teach for america. that's the reason i'm here.

blog. >> gretchen: so you wrote about the fact that he got an unsportsman like penalty late in the fourth quarter. you felt he was taunting the rice players. you say it's broader and the real message you're trying to convey is it puts new a difficult position because your son is look up to him and it's hard for you to express to your child this type of behavior. >> right. and we teach our children to look for great role models in the world and when i have a son who is a die hard a & m fan and loves johnny manziel, it does put me in an awkward position when i have to explain things and he has questions about behavior or things he has seen or heard about in social media. >> gretchen: i'm sure every parent has been in that situation. i know i have with tough questions. but there are many famous people and sports people who become famous who say, beth, i don't want kids to look up to me as a role model. i'm simply a ball player. don't look to me to be perfect.
and how would you respond to that? >> you know, my response to that is when you choose to go into those areas, you are in a spotlight and you may not want to be a role model, but by being in the spotlight, people look up to you and people watch you. just across the board, if you are in a spotlight, whether it's in front of a nation or in front of just one or two people, that you are being watched and little eyes watch and it makes an impact on the people who look up to you and kind of think, i'd love to be johnny manziel at texas a & m one day or whoever the person is. >> gretchen: i get it. i know you never thought your blog would catch on as much fire as it did as well. >> no. >> gretchen: beth, have a great weekend and we look forward to hearing more from your blog. thanks so much. >> thank you very much. >> gretchen: more "fox & friends" three minutes away cui.
