been there yood's 5-inch heel got caught on her flowy shirt. causing that fall at a concert in texas. she did not miss a beat. she later tweeted this picture of her foot in a big brace. it turns out she sprained her foot in that fall. >> mike: you have taken header lick that? >> alisyn: of course. probably in this studio. >> tucker: i bet your recovery was every bit of seemless? >> alisyn: i jumped pack up and started singing my country song. >> tucker: what's going on, brother? >> rick: i want to hear that country song. you can sing it for us? >> alisyn: not pause i care about ratings. >> mike: care about us. >> rick: here is your temps this morning. warm across plains. feeling very much like summer still but the northeast a cool one. going to continue to see these bouts of cool air move in from time to time. get stronger and stronger.
3:05 am
head into that season where gets cold. rain showers this morning. see that again later on today. most of the rain is out across the west. we continue to see this very good monsoon season especially for arizona. heavy rain will fall again today, tomorrow, actually the four to five days some spots will pick up over three inches of rain. that could mean some flooding there today, the heaviest rain is across areas of montana. one to two inches in some spots. some flooding there. also severe weather. i don't think tornado day today. hail and very strong winds. out just to the front of that in the towards the northern plains. take a look at temperatures. still summer very much. omaha next three days. you didn't have temperatures this summer. now you have got the 90's hanging on. today in minneapolis 92. back on monday 96 again. so the heat very much still in control. can use it to cool down a little bit. next three days looking very very warm. let's get back to top
3:06 am
story, of course, big weekend and syria is on the line with everyone particularly on capitol hill. syria charade some people are calling it administration is standing strong on its right to attack syria even if congress says no. so then why are -- is congress preparing for a vote as early as this week? we here in the senate and the president, tucker, is going to be making an address to the nation tuesday night. >> tucker: staring down the barrel of a major political defeat. throwing it back to congress. i don't want to deal with this. you make the decision. as of this morning the whip count suggests there is no way this is going to make it through the house of representatives. of course things change and it's possible the president will make a very compelling case. as of today it looks like he has lost the majority of republicans this the house of representatives and huge percentage of own democratic caucus. >> mike: last sunday it seemed like the other way around he was going to get the vote what has changed? >> tucker: republican leadership immediately came
3:07 am
out in favor of the president. >> alisyn: cantor still say they would support some type of strike. >> tucker: they are not being supported by their fellow republicans at all. >> mike: what if congress says no he could just go and do it anyway or do you have a way out there if congress says no as well, i believe i morally should go and attack syria but the people have spoken and they don't want me to do it. >> alisyn: spokesperson from the national security council gives, perhaps, a little insight into what the president is thinking. here is her quote: there is no change in our position as the president has said he has the authority to act. but his intention to do so with the approval of the congress. >> tucker: meanwhile, the president has been abroad at the g-20 summit and frankly hue mill qulatted i would say and i think a lot of democrats share this view. he was there with vladimir putin, of course, the leader for life of russia who was gathering to his side. all sorts of punitive allies of the united states who are saying we are now on russia's team. we are not for the united states plan in syria. and then the united states
3:08 am
losing apparently even the support of france. the president of france was of course on obama's side and now he is saying i'm not sure can i do it. i need the u.s. congress to act first. the wheels are coming off. >> alisyn: obviously the people who supported it whoss the party lines, oppose it is across party lines. you would not predict who would be for a party strike. dennis kucinich who is always antimilitary strike was for iraq as well. he has come out and he said that he believes that this could even be an impeachable offense for the president. listen to our fox news contributor. >> well, the constitution makes it very clear that the president has to come to congress to go it war. now he is doing that but we have seen some scuttlebutt that if congress defeats the president's intention to go to war that the white house might do it anyway. what i have said is that would be a very clear case for a violation of the constitution, which would
3:09 am
put this president in danger of impeachment. i don't think the country needs that or wants to go through that which is all the more reason why congress should vote against going to war and send a clear message to the president that they are listening to the american people overwhelmingly are rejecting going to war, entering into a civil war. creating the potential that this thing could spread throughout the region and engulf the region and bring in players from all over the world. >> i'm going to listen to congress i'm not going to do this and i was following the constitution. >> yeah. yeah. where are all of our friends in hollywood who, no matter what the crisis are always weighing in almost always on the left side. >> mike: crickets. >> tucker: overwhelming against the war in iraq and some against the war in afghanistan. we have heard virtually nothing on their views on syria. >> mike: heard from ed
3:10 am
asner. ed says it's because a lot of people don't want to -- well, be antiblack or anti-the president. and he says. >> alisyn: a lot of people don't want to feel antiblack by being opposed to obama. i voted for him, but i'm not proud. he hasn't thrown himself on the funeral pyre. i wanted him to sacrifice himself instead of is he a corporatist. as long as is he a corporatist he is not my president. a lot of people have lost hope with the nsa betrails, spying. who gives a blank is essentially the bottom line. >> mike: wow. >> tucker: people don't want to feel antiblack by being opposed to obama. he said it but we didn't. >> alisyn: what he is talking about. does he think that the syria vote people would vote for syria because they don't want to be antiblack. that is absurd link. >> tucker: they don't want to oppose bomb that because
3:11 am
they feel virtuous by supporting obama. by having african-american president a sign the country has evolved. opposing him is moving backward. >> mike: support a democrat. >> tucker: they didn't give clinton the pass they are giving obama at all. when clinton had his relationship with monica lewenski, half the democrats in the house and senate attacked him on moral grounds. you never heard anything like that about obama. >> alisyn: i don't think that you can say that any time somebody agrees with the president it's because he is black or they disagree with the president it's because they are racist. >> tucker: i agree. >> alisyn: i think that's absurd. >> tucker: totally absurd. but you can't tell me there is an awful lot of guilt in hollywood that motivates their politics. the whole thing is ridiculous. the president's race has nothing to do with anything. how i assess or other people assess him. hollywood think it's immoral to attack the guy.
3:12 am
>> alisyn: do you agree with ed asner on any topic really or do you think this has to do with race? you can find us on twitter. we would love to hear about you. make mike how about this as a topic. we have a lot to get to. coming coming up, brand new job numbers. unemployment rate dropped last month but why. turns out millions of americans have given up looking for work. we break down the numbers next. >> tucker: retailers ditching the boy and girl sections in the toy aisle to make all toys gender neutral. is this a good idea or so ridiculous it can't be true coming up. >> mike: ed asner, what do you think? ♪ ♪ at od, whatever business you're in, that's the business we're in

3:16 am
mr. obama's most effective job program is to convince adults that they don't need a job. >> tucker: unemployment number, like of the inflation number. i mean, these are rigged numbers. if you and i are creating them out of nothing. we would not use the metrics that they are using. it's not a straightforward measure of unemployment, is it? >> well, better measure would be the percentage of adults that have a job. and that's starting to decline. and, also, the percentage of adults that have full-time jobs. since the beginning of the year. over 800,000 americans report getting a part-time job on a net basis. only 30,000 on a net basis report getting a full-time job. this has become part-time america. everybody is working at either starbucks or mcdonald's. if it's college it's starbucks didn't go to starbucks it's mcdonalds. >> tucker: 6.4% participation rate. it hasn't been that low since 1978 which was a famously bad year for
3:17 am
america. what does poor tend? >> it portends an economy that it is very, very sick. people are so discouraged if they have a working spouse or a parent they have just given up. what it means is that optimism about finding a job is lower than a snake's belly. tuck it tuck so this may account that one sixth of all americans are now on food stamps. we are trying to figure out why that's happening. the obama administration is pushing food stamps aggressively trying to sign people up. that number inevitably grows when the unemployment rate remains stubbornly high, no? >> absolutely. folks go to food stamps when unemployment is high or when they're stuck in these part-time jobs. the income levels in part-time jobs are very, very low. even if you manage to put a couple of them together to you work 40 or 50 hours a week the rage rates are so low. it puts you into food stamps if you have got any kids. the states in rural areas are out recruiting people to be on food stamps to bring federal money into those rural areas. it's a remarkable effort at
3:18 am
an employment program. it also manufactures lots of democrats. ed asner should be cheering. >> tucker: america's job base is being hollowed out. the private sector is really really hurting. is the public sector seeing the same kind of contraction in how are government employees doing. >> government employment has been shrinking through recovery. this month there was a little bit of a lift. that's a good thing. it got bloated during the boom years because of rising property taxes and properties and local governments that didn't make adjustments. even now local governments continue to raise taxes to keep that from happening. there are just too many bureaucrats. try to build a deck on the back of your house. i did that two years ago and i did it 25 years ago. i was amazed how many people with clip boards came out with, you know, came out to inspect the deck from the city. it's amazing. so we need a lot more of state and local governments losing weight. it's not policemen. look at all the speed
3:19 am
traps. >> tucker: it's nobody business what kind of deck you build by the way. finally, can we just agree to ignore the unemployment number and go henceforth with the labor force participation number? i mean, it's a much more meaningful measure, is it not? >> i think we need to look at a variety of numbers. like your doctor when he checks your blood and looks at different numbers. the percentage of adults that have a job. from that a percentage of adults that have a full-time job. if we were grading this president on those numbers, why i hate to tell you, this but he would be out of the program in maryland. he would get an e and encouraged to go to the university in baltimore that trains pastry chefs. >> tucker: community college. peter morici thanks for joining us. >> take care. >> tucker: great video online but this one leaves you speechless. this man confesses to murder. >> my name is matthew cordle and on june 22nd, 2013, i hit and killed

arizona woman on death row for more than two decades is now a free woman. debra milky was convicted of having her 4-year-old son killed but the judge ruled there is no direct evidence limping her to that murder other than alleged confession to a detective whose honesty has been questioned. she will now get a new trial. a major oops at the columbus dispatch. a day after peyton manning's historic night against baltimore. the paper published this headline john elway throws seven touchdown passes. elway of course retired as the bronco's qb way back in 1998 that was 15 years ago. >> mike: it was peyton manning. the latest internet sensation is not so innocent and probably shouldn't be a sensation. more and more people are now confessing to crimes over social media take a look at this 22-year-old and what he is admitting. >> my name is matthew cordle. and on june 22nd, 2013, i hit and killed vincent
3:25 am
kenzani. this video will act as my confession. when i get charged, i will plead guilty to take full responsibility for everything i have done to vince and his family. >> alisyn: i invite everyone to watch that online. i will actually tweet out the address because it is very effecting. very deep. so how are these online confessions exacting the legal system in the cases? defense attorney ashley merchant joins us to weigh in. hi, ashley. >> hi, how are you? >> alisyn: doing well. this guy mount to you that cordle was a suspect in a drunk driving accident that killed a man. he was not charged yet but he decided to confess online. he says he knew by doing so he was basically handing the case over to prosecutors. he said he was willing to take what he deserved. it's really, really poignant, actually. but what does that mean for his case? i mean, will the judge look kindly on what he has done
3:26 am
here? >> i think the judge will look kindly on it i think the prosecution will look kindly on it. he is taking a huge risk because he has no garn tee as to what the the outcome of the case will be. normally when we would do something like this and go and throw ourselves at the mercy of the court. we would have borkd out parameters of a plea deal before you go in and throw yourself on the mercy of the court he is taking a huge jump and leap of faith by doing. this. >> mike: actually, is that admissible? would that be played in court? >> it is admissible. and the issue would be not whether or not actually admitted or the weight the judge or a jury gives it the issue here is him. can you see it not like an email where you don't actually see the person speaking or typing. this is a little bit different because it's actually him speaking so unless he comes mick mike what do you think of that. >> unless he comes in court and says he was coerced into making this video it's going to be admissible. because it actually can be confirmed that he made this video and he was the one
3:27 am
speaking. wherein in an email, for example, unless you actually saw the person making the email and sending the email it would be difficult to prove who actually sent that email. >> alisyn: to that point in that video confession there that we are playing you see him writing out i confess did i this. it seems as though he didn't want any lap holes. he wanted to take full responsibility. it's very refreshing to have somebody actually just say i messed up. i did it. because everybody, it seems like, when you get to court tries to game the system. tries to find a loophole. tries to find some way out of it. we are so used to that when somebody steps forward and says i take responsible, come what may. if i were the judge, that would really affect me. >> it's shocking because most of the time i have a lot of clients who actually go into court and say i want to take responsibility. until they learn what the punishment is. until they learn that oh, if i take responsibility that means i'm going to
3:28 am
prison or mandatory minimum or things like that. he may have decided he wanted to take responsibility but once he gets into court and he actually finds out what the penalty is, and that he is actuallying will at serious prison time, he may change his tune. i hope not but he might. >> mike: almost makes him kind of sympathetic. you kind of admire what he he did there alli, right? you don't want to turn the guy into a celebrity, ashley. >> no. he definite solid admirable. the good thing about this he tried to make it sort of a public service announcement and tried to tell people look, i made this mistake. don't make this mistake. i know what you going through. and so he really was trying to do good with it. i think that aspect of the shouldio is going to carry a -- video is going to carry more weight with a judge or prosecutor who is trying to decide his sentence. >> mike: the guy in florida killed his wife and posted it on facebook. >> alisyn: that was grizzly and gruesome in a way this one isn't. i will send out the address
3:29 am
for everybody so they can decide for themselves. ashley, thanks so much for legal analysis of this. >> mike: next on the rundown, the big announcement about the super bowl halftime show. don't want to miss this. >> alisyn: plus, it's all the trend right now, but what exactly is juicing? what are its benefits? is it better for you than just eating fruit and who says it can get rid of gray hair? >> mike: i'm juiced now. >> alisyn: you're always juiced. this was the hardest decision i've ever had to make.

4:03 am
seen six tropical storms. we have seen seven. that is more active. none of them legit storms. normally we would have seen three hurricanes by now and we're at zero. no hurricanes. i can tell you when you take a look at the satellite, tropical satellite right now across the area nothing of big concern. a tropical storm that formed earlier this week across the northern caribbean it dissipated very quickly. some activity that i think we could potentially see at least moisture across that east texas area across the gulf of mexico. but nothing at least in the next week that's going to develop here. if we get past september 12th or to september 129, it will be the latest we have ever gone without having a hurricane so far in the atlantic. it certainly looks like we're going to get and break that record. very odd because we expected a very active season this year. east coast today you are looking really pretty good. few showers this morning across parts of the great lakes this afternoon a few more showers across areas of south florida. all the action is really out across the west. a steady stream of moisture. another tropical system off

4:05 am
it to the senate and to congress. almost everybody i talked to work in philadelphia monday through friday, almost everybody on the street that i talk to about this they still don't quite understand what we're doing and they don't want to go, so the administration doesn't seem to be selling the fact. and they all say why would we get in the middle of a civil war when the point is to punish assad for using chemical weapons. >> tucker: they are absolutely confused about. this the president seemed to draw a red line. he suggested the other day he did no such thing. attack unilaterally and throw it back to congress. got a window into the administration the other day when the american ambassador to the united nations samantha powers, high level advisor to the president explained that she thinks if the u.n. were only to tell iran that syria had used chemical weapons, that iran would say are you kidding? that's appalling and would draw their support of syria and the regime. the administration thinks
4:06 am
iran has some moral problems with chemical weapons which by the way they used in the war with iraq in the 1980s. that's instain. >> mike: insame getting the chemical weapons. >> alisyn: actually does help advise the president on matters such as. this came out to try to clarify what the president's position is as it relates to congress. >> mike: because it seemed like there was a change. >> alisyn: here is what he they said yesterday: he doesn't need congress. he is going to congress to ask for their authorization as of yesterday, that was the last head count. he does not have anywhere close to the numbers he would need. >> mike: explain what you just said. [ laughter ] >> tucker: this is almost as confusing as the administration's position itself. he doesn't need the congress' go ahead. he wants it, but if he
4:07 am
doesn't receive it, he may go forward anyway. >> mike: why some different opinions? does he need it or not? >> alisyn: according to the war powers act of 1973, he does need it and there is going to be any sort of declaration or act of war he does need congress to authorize that, but presidents have circumvented that in the past. were. >> tucker: here is the thinking on the hill as you pointed out alli. many on the democratic left are against it eleanor holmes norton a delegate from d.c. which thank god is not a state yet. very loyal and ardent democrat said this about her feelings on it watch. if he gets at all it will be because of loyalty of democrats. they don't want to see him shamed or humiliated on the national scene. at the moment, that's the only reason i would vote for it if i could vote on it. >> tucker: that's amazing
4:08 am
send missiles in to kill people. >> mike: that she doesn't believe in. >> tucker: because she doesn't want to see obama shamed that's unbelievable she would say like that but perhaps that's the motivation of congress. >> mike: some people in this country do feel that way about the guy or the woman. you know i voted for that person. i want to continue to support them. >> tucker: sparing him shame is not a good reason to kill people. >> alisyn: again, the president is speaking tuesday night. there was some indication that the senate might be voting on this as early as this week. so, it's hard to know if the president between right now, this moment and tuesday night if he can sway people in congress and sway the american public or if people already have heard enough and made up their minds he gave a fascinating press conference in st. petersburg how it should compel us what syria has done to children and innocent people there
4:09 am
should compel us to action that the leap going into nations and launching missiles is a big leap for a lot of peoe mick mike why would we go in and retaliate and maybe even some of the people that got gassed hate the united states. you know what i mean? >> tucker: sounds like everyone hates the united states. lack, if we go in, it may be the right thing, may be the wrong thing. innocence will die because they always do in war. if you were one of the innocent to die in that attack. how would you know that you died to save the president's shame? that is not a legitimate justification for a military action. and i think eleanor holmes norton ought to be ashamed of something something like that in public. that's really an appalling thing to express. >> mike: let's talk about the economy then. >> alisyn: gentlemen, the new jobs numbers came out this week. they were not good. lower than people had expected. furthermore, july's job numbers were revised drastically downward. so, neither of those were
4:10 am
good signs. >> mike: people are giving up looking for work. that's one thing. >> august unemployment rate dropped to 7.3%. what exactly does that mean? is that good news? bad news? peter morici on this morning. he is an economics professor from the university of of maryland. he put it all in context for us. listen. the number of americans that are not seeking work, that don't have employment is up by half a million in one month alone. mr. obama's most effective job program is to convince itself that they don't need a job. it portends an economy that it is very, very sick. people are so discouraged that if they have a working spouse or a parent they have just given up. what it means is that optimism about finding a job is lower than a snake's belly. >> alisyn: here is a shocking number. the labor force participation rate. how many people are actually working. they want to be working is at 63.2%. just for some historical context for you. that is the lowest rate in
4:11 am
35 years. >> mike: there is a big brouhaha down in the casino area of atlantic city because they are firing a lot of full-time people and hiring a ton of part-time people. we see that in hospitals in philadelphia as well. >> tucker: obama care is driving. a lot of factors are are complex. the fact that the u.s. government is requiring employers to take on massive new costs for every full-time employee they have inevitably provides incentive for them to have fewer full-time employees. it's not complicated. >> alisyn: one bright spot in terms of economy. fertility rate is up. more people are having babies. people are going back to having babies. it had really dropped precipitously the last few years during the recession. in the past six months the birth rate is again going up to normal levels which shows optimism. >> it is. wouldn't that show optimism that things are getting better? >> i don't know if it shows optimism. >> boredom.
4:12 am

>> this is hard. and i was under no allusions when i embarked on this path. when you i think it's the right thing to do. i think it's good for our democracy. we will be more affected if we are unified going forward. part of what we knew it would be some politics interjecting. >> alisyn: well, that was president obama in russia at the at the g-20 summit. addressing congressional opposition to a strike on
4:16 am
syria. >> turns out some of his toughest opposition is coming from democrats. who is playing politics. if congress votes no. will the president still go ahead and strike. those are some the open questions facing us. randy forbes joins us. is he on the armed services committee. very relevant committee. congressman, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thanks for having us this morning. >> does the president have the votes and if he doesn't will he do it anyway? >> well, i can't answer the latter question because this president has ignored the law several times already. i don't know what he will do. he may totally bypass the war powers act. i can tell you that is he not just losing these votes. theying away from him i listened to you guys talking earlier. some of the person hermine were confused. i disagree with that i think the american people are not confused. what's common fusing here is the president's foreign policy. they might have been confused on obama care and the president's bailout bills. but they are not confused about. this they are pretty united that they don't believe that we should be going
4:17 am
into syria. i think you are going to see that reflected this the vote. especially in the house. >> alisyn: congressman, you are on record with saying that you will not vote for military action in syria. so, given that the assad regime appears, given the evidence that we have seen to have used chemical weapons, what should be done? >> well, i think the number one thing we should do is not take our eye off of the two major problems we have got with our national defense right now. and the first one is iran. and i think that unfortunately syria is causing us to take our eyes off the bat. but the second thing, alisyn, is to really recognize that, you know he, we have had a dismantling of our military right now. $587 billion of cuts to our national defense and sequestration. f-22s back to 3. >> alisyn: not capable of doing anything in terms it of a strike. >> we are capable. we have stretched our military way too far. we have had our pilot
4:18 am
sitting on the tarmacs and not allowing them to be training because why wouldn't give them the fuel. number one thing we need to do to send a message around the world is to change all the trection we are heading and these cuts and begin rebuilding our military. that will send a very strong message. >> congressman, you are against this. it seems like most republicans in the house are but your leaders are for it john boehner, eric cantor came out almost immediately to back the president's plan. why did they do that? >> i can't answer for them. i wish they had not done that because the speaker had mentioned that he thought the president should listen to members of congress. well, i would like to have seen the speaker and the majority leader both of whom i have a lot of respect for, but i would have liked to have seen them listen to members of congress when we get back before they made this decision. because i have talked to at love our members. i can tell you that the overwhelming majority of them are adamantly against this action in syria. and, as you mentioned, the democrats are equally opposed to it. >> congressman, you have made a compelling case for beefing up our military and the message that that would
4:19 am
send. back to the chemical weapons, it is an international red line there are international laws against using chemical weapons. are we supposed to just sit on our hands while syria does that? >> well, alisyn, i think one thing the president has waited so long. he has lost any advantage he would have in sending that message. the second thing is, you know, we don't send strikes across the bough. the president has not made a case yet for what his military objective is, the strategy of how we would accomplish that and then the exit strategy for doing it one of the things that many of us know who sit on the armed services committee is you don't get to pick the number of days you are going to be at war. when you launch a war and say we are only going to thereby 48 hours, nobody can guarantee he that i think the american people are not ready for this huge commitment right now in going to war with syria. >> tucker: congressman randy ford, member of of the house services committee. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> alisyn: disturbing new trend among teenagers. smoking egrets cigarettes.

4:47 am
homes owned by veterans don't nt have potable water even though they do have potable water. and this prevents those veterans from getting va loans or having va loans financed. is this right? >> tucker, slightly different interest from that there is something like 60,000 homes as i recall in the 2000 census in the big island catching systems, off the roof and filtration process. 60,000, a way of life as most people around the world know it's a way of life in many places. roughly i think about 16,000 veterans who live on the big islands of hawaii. and what the state did, not the federal government but the state bureaucrat under neil abercrombie placed on their web site a catching water is no longer acceptable for drinking. >> va you have to have drinkable water. so, this bureaucratic
4:48 am
blunder if you will sitting up there. the va saw it and said we can't make loans under those circumstances. and good friend of mine, representative bob mcdermott, also a former marine himself has been trying to talk to the governor to get the governor to merely act with one stroke of the pen and remove that ridiculous statement. even though the university of hawaii says potable water through cashment system -- catchment system is very real and could work. >> tucker: government could fix it hamstrung cut off from va loans because of this ruling. he could fix it with the stroke of the pen and he is choosing not to. why? >> i have no idea. the governor has a long history of being -- he was antiwar rad particular dal during the vietnam i -- -- radical during the vietnam war. he used to have long hair but he cut that off.
4:49 am
a lot of veterans would like to have a va financed home and is he blocking it. it wouldn't take a flick of a pen. it would nearly take him simply saying change this. and the va incidentally gave them the language continue to setter on their web site that would -- to insert on their web site to fix the problem. it's an example of inat the -- incompetence in bureaucracies out there and certainly incompetency in leadership. the governor like some politicians today know nothing about leadership. it's evident in this simple problem that he can't solve. >> tucker: he does know something about pressure though and hobbifully this will torque it up to the extent that he has to rectify. this an american hero joining us now from washington are appreciative of having you on this morning. thank you. >> good to he so you, tucker. >> tucker: have americans become too dependent on government? in order to live the american dream you need less government. joining us now to explain. then, she was on her way out of the world trade

cooler. boston you are only to 71. see some highs into 60's across much of new england. those 90's hold on right across areas of all the way towards bismarck, north dakota. send it back to you inside. >> rick: thank you, rick reichmuth. we appreciate it syria is still dominating the news. the question what exactly is the plan? the details the president's syria's strike plan seem to change daily. officials have been asked to revise plans 50 times sips the pentagon first began considering what they are calling limited action against that country. what is going on? thank heaven we have governor mike huckabee here to lay it out for us. governor, what is going on? do they have a plan? >> no they don't have a plan. the plan is to continue to change the plan to adapt to whatever the political winds are blowing. this is like watching a woody allen movie. there is so many different plots going on and neurosis of trying to figure out what we are going to do. it's a tragedy because we are talking about human lives. human lives on the american side that are going to be
5:07 am
called to even firing missiles at some point this is probably not going to be limited to just shooting off fireworks. >> mike: if a leader uses chemical weapons, what are we supposed to do. >> we have to condemn it. here is the point f we don't have an international outrage, which one of the times that if the united nations cannot unite around condemnation of use of chemical weapons andism pose some other economic or other sanctions on syria. then let's jack hammer the whole thing off, float it into the east river and be done with it. it's an absolute waste of effort. but we don't have that kind of outrage in part because the evidence is not absolutely 100% concrete at this point. >> alisyn: why not. >> i think because one thing the inspectors didn't get there that quickly. the russians have 100 page report that they say refutes the 9 page report that the jats dependent upon. >> mike: this t. sounds like iraq. >> it is. we don't know for certain. we have a criminal justice system that says you don't
5:08 am
carry out a sentence on somebody until you are found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. there is still some reasonable doubt here. taking military action without understanding what we know to be the facts is premature it. >> alisyn: governor, i need to clarify something. why can't we just launch tomahawk missiles. didn't this work in bosnia or kosovo. can't we just do a missile strike on the chemical weapons or the air, you know, artillery, stuff like that? why must it be boots on the ground? >> well, it doesn't have to be booze on the ground. -- boots on the ground. pentagon weapons and pentagon reports it's going to take 75,000 boots on the ground to get them. you can't take out the chemical weapons with tomahawk weapons. >> mike: they are moved around. >> plus, i used to live in a city that controlled all of america's nerve gas. pine bluff, arkansas. it's all been destroyed now. at the time, the problem was if you blew it up, you
5:09 am
have blown it up into the air. you have now killed a the lo of people. >> tucker: you destabilize the assad regime the chemical weapons end up in the hands of al qaeda. these are the questions being debated on the hill. the president at the latest whip count does not have the support of the president in the house. some democrats are on the fence. eleanor holmes nonvoting delegate from d.c. explain why if she could vote she would vote for obama. listen to her rationale. >> 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. >> eleanor holmes norton would vote to kill people if the president-is that sane rationale. >> it's insane rationale. what she sworn to as every member of congress uphold
5:10 am
the constitution. and to serve her constituents. those are the two basic responsibilities. neither of which she has seemingly an interest in. it's making sure to cover the president's rear end. that's not what she is -- >> tucker: people die so the president is not humiliated. >> just to clarify that absolutely. >> alisyn: lead up to iraq hollywood really was up in arms there were big protests, celebrities were coming on talk shows. so now there has been relative silence about the lead up to syria. ed asner, however, has come tout to talk about how conflicted basically hollywood is about this because they want to support the president. hear what his rationale and we look forward to you trying to pars this. a lot of people don't want to feel antiblack by being opposed to obama. i voted for him but i'm not proud. he sheant thrown himself on the funeral pyre. i wanted him to stack fight himself but he has proven himself to be a corporatist. and as long as is he a
5:11 am
corporatist he is not my president. a lot of people have. >> i always wondered what the word was the blank. >> that's a racist statement. let me tell you why. racism is when we show preference to a person because of race if i show preference to my own race, we would say that's racism. if i show preference to someone else's racenned i give them deferential treatment, it's still racism because i'm showing deference and preference of one race over the other. this is the worst example of the duplicity of people who think they are so open-minded but in fact are racist. this is racism in its rawest form. when you start treating people differently because of their race. whether you treat them worse or whether you treat them better. this is just -- there is a negative racism and a positive racism. this is what might be called positive racism. i treat you better because i don't want to offend you because of your color. >> mike: where is ed asner getting any proof that
5:12 am
anyone is doing this though not supporting or speaking out about the issue because they don't want to be -- >> mike: that's what he said. he said i don't want to be perceived as antiblack. i have heard other people make this kind of claim. i think it's ridiculous to say. >> tucker: constantly telling people if you oppose him you are racist. how many times you have heard that from congress. >> talk show hosts on other networks i won't e mention. if you oppose obama's policies you are a racist. no you are not a racist. you oppose his policies because you disagree with him. it has nothing to do with race, nothing. >> alisyn: interesting. governor, great to see you. >> thanks. >> alisyn: tell us about your show. >> deputy defense minister from israel will be one of our guests. i think a very fascinating discussion. what is his role in all of this? what is he thinking? he will answer a lot of the questions. we will talk about syria and i hope people will watch. >> mike: i bet they will. >> alisyn: thanks so much governor huckabee. data plans to the the phone

>> tucker: this is not a good sign for the american economy. job numbers have just been released. 300,000 people have stopped working or even looking for work just this month. that number is now at its highest since august of 1978 during the carter administration. so when it comes to getting a job and getting ahead in this country have americans just given up. me a love is the mayor of saratoga springs, utah a candidate for the united states congress and our guest this morning. mariss nice to see you this morning. >> nice to see you. >> tucker: is this a revision of the american dream? are we going to have to change our assumptions president possibilities of getting ahead in this country? >> i hope not. i mean, many people are concerned about, you know,
5:17 am
the country and where the country is headed. some people have given up. i'm telling as many people as possible not to give up. i believe that if we stay in this fight. our best days lie ahead of us. can you see a lot of people that are just discouraged with the way things are going but the last thing you should do is give up. as a matter of fact, i said that this country will be healed by people not as washington. if we give on people we will lose the american dream. >> tucker: the government has poured trillions into the economy trying to right it. and it seems like the more government interconvenience the more stagnant the economy becomes and the more sort of hopeless a the love americans become. why? >> same thing always happens. we have seen it over and over again. the more government involvement, the less -- the lower the quality, the higher the cost. i mean, if you think about it, and poverty programs, our country spends over a trillion dollars a year to
5:18 am
try and end poverty, except it keeps growing and growing and growing. it tells you it's not working. people are poorer. were people are discouraged. under this president's policies, it's actually hurt the most vulnerable and the poorest among us. >> tucker: these are not abstract issues for you. you have firsthand experience with this. tell us. >> my parents if you talk about the american dream. back in the 1970s my parents immigrated here with $10 in their pockets. they had no worldly possessions. they had had no home, no car, just the clothes on their backs. they were able to find work. work really hard. put they kids through school. do everything they can and realize the american dream. i remember when we moved into our first house that my parents bought. and it was a big deal for them. and, you know, looking back now, and seeing those sacrifices and what they have been able to accomplish in this country is incredibly encouraging. we is to go back there we have got to go back and rebuild that american

be attached to that. aly? >> alisyn: thanks, mike. are violent video games partly to blame for some of the mass shootings we have seen in the past two decades. new research into those games suggest there very well could be a close connection. phil is the author of inside the mind of a teen killer. and is he our guest this morning. hi, phil. >> hi, how are you? >> alisyn: we talked about allot about this connection between violent video games and actual violence around the time of the newtown massacre. there has long been antidotal evidence of a connection between the two. what is the latest research suggest? >> well, i have personally talked to 200 teen killers, studied 1,000 cases. pretty much any time we have a mass murder incident like newtown, it's pretty much a given that these kids are going to be involved and fascinated with violent video games. i have a top 10 list of causes of teen murder. and violent media, violent video games is number two.
5:25 am
it's a very big part of these cases. >> alisyn: not just new town. the columbine killers killers e big. the virginia tech killer was as well. jared laughner, gabriel giffords was. norway shooter. aurora movie theater culprit and of course then new town. it's just undeniable that there is a connection but, can we go so far as to say that violent video games make kids violent? >> i believe it's a multiple -- teen murder is a multiple cause crime. in my research it takes three to six causes to make a teen killer. violent video games or violent media is one of those. there are a lot of people who say you can't blame it on violent video games. you can can. it's not just one cause but if you have multiple causes. unstable home, bullying at school. drugs and alcohol. you throw he in violent video games it becomes very very dangerous. it is definitely part of teen murder i think we need
5:26 am
to take it more serious. >> alisyn: kids that have previous disposition to being unhinged. when you add the flammable factor of violent video game, it sort of pushes them over the edge. what we have heard before is that it's the constant repetition, the simulation of murder that gets them comfortable with it did you find that? >> absolutely. these games are really like training films. we're training to kill every day in america on average five teenagers commit murder. 9 kill themselves. this further fires these kids up. they will play these games for five or six hours a day. us as adults don't do anything five or six hours aday. these kids are engrained in it sometimes 8 hours a day. it's repetitious. >> alisyn: what is the answer? >> the answer is we need to take this more seriously. we need to look at the
5:27 am
research. the american medical association has done a lot of research and released some studies that there is a causal connection between the two. and i think we need to, instead of putting warning labels on these games. start enforcing them like alcohol, tobacco, poring. we don't -- pornography. we don't sell those to children because they are dangerous. we need to treat video games the same way. how many more now towns are we going to have. adam lanza was playing modern warfare live. is he playing a game. >> alisyn: be absolutely. excellent point. we appreciate you sharing it with us. the book inside the mind of a teen killer. thank you. meanwhile, while you were sleeping. we have tell you about this terrorists with ties to the taliban. we have details for you. he has won four nflers so does nfl hall of famer terry bradshaw have what it takes for this next challenge? cheering up grumpy cat.

today is saturday, september 7. thanks for joining us. president obama is standing his ground on plans to strike syria, but congress is still not on board. and why bother taking the vote? >> and are we becoming a european economy? government jobs up, those in the private sector down. we'll tell you what this means for the recovery and the future of this country. and retailers ditching the boys and girls sections of the toy store aisles to make all toys gender neutral. i can't wait to hear tucker's take on that. is that a good or bad idea? fox and friends continues now. you're watching "fox & friends," the news boss. >> buddy the cake boss is on the show in philly that i to.
6:01 am
yesterday. >> is that right? mike, always great to have you. very important news weekend here at "fox & friends" and of course around the world as everyone waits to see what the president will do and how congress will vote on syria. >> at this point, we have no idea what the president's plans are, but we are getting a sense of how they're being received in the congress. the president originally intended to strike syria unilaterally without the help of our allies and then he reversed and tloohrew to the doccongress. now there is no chanced it would pass if held today, but there is a speech in prime time tuesday. will that make a difference. >> if the vote doesn't pass as it would not today, so then what happens? does the president go forward with the military strike on syria or does he say i can't do it without the congress?
6:02 am
good y go >> you could go i won't do it even though i have the right, now i'll listen to the will of the people and we're not going to do it. >> former congressman dennis kucinich of ohio said he believes if the president were to act, that it would be an impeachable offense. >> well, the constitution makes it very clear that the president has to come to congress to get approval to go to war. he's doing that, but we've seen some scuttlebutt that if congress defeats the president's intention to go to war, that the white house might do it anyway and i've said that would be a very clear case for violation of the constitution which would put this president in danger of impeachment. >> he says a clear case. other people says not clear at all. >> i pulled up the war you powers resolution and there is room for interpretation. >> there is room for interpretation. and by the way the american people have been over the years remarkable tolerant of
6:03 am
presidents' decisions even when they disagree. this is why you hire a president, to act decisively in america's interests. but what the public wants more than anything is to believe that the president knows what he's doing. he's not making it up as he goes along, it's not ad hoc, that there is a plan. is there? we asked mike huckabee. here's what he said. >> no, they don't have a plan. the plan is to continue to change the plan to adapt to whatever the political winds are blowing. this is like watching a woody allen movie. there are so many different plots going on. and the neuro cease ces of tryi figure out what to do. human lives on the american side even firing missiles, at some point this is probably not going to be limited to just shooting off fire works. >> part of why the governor said that the president doesn't have a plan is because jennifer griffin, our stellar pentagon reporter, she found out an exclusive which is that pentagon planners have been given 52
6:04 am
different requests for action. 52 different options or scenarios. that was a stunning number to many people. obviously every war plan there isn't always just one, sometimes they're revised, but the fact that there were 52 sounds like many revisions. >> different scenarios. that's not being specific like the reason why we have to switch the strategies because assad may be moving weapons around. different theories on how to handle it. >> just what we were going to do. what the plan is. 52 different incarnations of that. >> really the curtain is pulled ba and you're getting a sense of how the white house makes decisions. really in the medal of the night, reversing itself, the president's aides said they were totally confused when he decided to throw the question back to the congress. now we learn that the president's u.n. ambassador, samantha powers, believed that if the u.n. ambassadors found use of chemical weapons in syria and prevented the evidence to iran which is the state that funds syria, then iran would be so horrified they would stop
6:05 am
funding syria. what world do you live in? >> when they actually used them in the war against iraq. >> if you actually believe iran is capable of moral outrage over chemical weapons, you're not living in this world. >> still many being the president should go through the u.n. even though they are toothless and do the not act at times like this and russia and china would veto, just to have them on the record. to go through the right protocol to have them on the record to have to take a stand whether or not it's okay to use chemical weapons. >> are you amazed to watch liberals making the case the u.n. doesn't matter? they're run by russia, who cares what they think. that's what conservatives have said for decades and now all of a sudden will i be of liberals are parroting it back. >> now there is a consensus that the u.n. is useless in matters tasked with -- >> what an amazing three or four days we have right in front of us. >> tuesday night when the president makes his case to the american people and then
6:06 am
possibly a vote in the senate this week right after that. >> it looks like the wheels are coming off. this seems like a defining moment in the obama administration. not about giving cell phones to the homeless. that's not how history will sum up the record of the administration. it's in cries ceases like this. >> meanwhile we have more news to tell you about. there was a scare in the student section at a high school football game in ohio. watch this. five people were hurt when those bleachers collapsed. we're told none of the injuries was serious. one of the victims said someone with a camera came over to the students' section to get video of them cheering and that's when every started pushing forward causing the rail to go collapse. and also while you were sleeping, nasa launched a moon shot. watch this. >> two, one, zero. ignition.
6:07 am
and liftoff. >> that launched late last night. its mission is to explore the moon's mysterious glow. it provided an incredible sight for millions along the east coast like this photo taken from new york city. the robotic explorer is expected to take a month to reach the moon. >> that shot all the way from virginia. remember when the irs was caught wasting thousands of dollars on training videos like this one? >> i'm afraid anarchy is spreading an crocross the plane. >> another new gem has come out. the house ways and means committee is investigating another irs training video this one spooking the apprentice. >> i make stars out of them, but in this case, you're fired. >> well, you might recognize the donald there. that is irs official farris
6:08 am
fink, i believe a stage name. he also played spock. and he testified before congress. which one of these three is the real farris fink? the video reportedly cost $10,000 to make. the committee says it was never even used because the conference where it was going to be the entertainment was canceled. you can tell us about the super bowl this year? >> i'm kind of excited about this. the headliner for the halftime show is -- ♪ when i see your face, there's not a thing that i would change cause you're amazing ♪ >> the reeal bruno mars will be there. he'll do the halftime show. and it will be right across the river from new york city in new jersey. in the first week of february. no confirmation from the nfl, but an official announcement could come maybe tomorrow during all the games tomorrow. i think it's a really good
6:09 am
choice. i've seen him in concert. >> you heard it here first on fox and friends oend sfriends. >> we beat them all. rick is outside to tell us what's going to happen me metrological metrologically. >> tucker, what do you think of bruno mars? >> i've never heard him. >> i assumed that. that's why i asked. >> he's calling you out. >> do you know who bruno mars is? >> yeah. >> at the super bowl, what do you think? >> i don't know who he is. >> there you go. there is a little bit of that with bruno mars. he's new and young. but he's good. there you go. what about the weather? take a look at your weather maps. today your temps across the central plains are very warm. a lot of areas about 15 degrees above average. most of the country is well above average right now. tomorrow, that heat hangs out right there across the high plains area from kansas up towards north dakota dealing with temps 15 degrees before average. we cool down a little bit towards the far northern tier later on in the week.
6:10 am
across the east today, a beautiful day. plenty of sunshine. there is a front moving in towards far northern area of new england. it will bring a little rain and a few showers. maybe especially a thunderstorm or two later on in the day. down towards the south, we'll see more rain in florida. but for the most part, it is just shot and still sticky. temps well into the upper 90s across much of texas and oklahoma. feeling solidly like summer, not feeling like pushing middle september. in towards the northern plains, same story. 96 in lincoln. ridiculous for right now. across areas of the west, plenty of rain again. arizona and utah, get ready this week. next four to five days, 3 to 4 inches of rainfall. back to you inside. i should have brought you flowers. >> what's happen something. >> that's a bruno mars song. >> my heart is singing. [ buzzer ] a european economy, is that where we're heading? all the signs point in that
6:11 am
direction. the number of government workers is up 324,000 in just one month. meanwhile in the private sector, the number of employed people down 278,000. >> you keep saying its he a impossible on get fired from a government job. >> as i say every week, you're more likely to die on the job than you are to be fired from the federal government. >> right. apparently it's easy to get hired, however. charles krauthammer sees this as a disturbing trend. >> this is what happens when you become a european-like country. europe has had exactly this kind of chronic unemployment for decades. and we haven't had it. it's now part of our lives and i think it's because we have this incredibly slow recovery with a government that overregular lates, it's been stifling the sort of natural energy of a free economy which is very strong in the u.s.. and what we're getting is stagnati stagnation. >> august unemployment rate did
6:12 am
dip to 7.3%. >> of course that just means that more people dropped out of looking for a job. >> because the government doesn't count people who aren't trying to find full-time appropriate. >> and then you have all the part-time employees, you're right. >> but that number we just put up is the most stunning, the labor participation force, how many people in america who can work, who are of working age, are in the workforce and that number right there that you see, 63%, is the lowest it has been in 35 years. >> since 1978. the jimmy carter administration. if you've seen this movie before, buckle your seatbelts. coming up, president obama promise to go push forward with a strike against syria, but congress seems to be backing down on this. can he proceed without its support? former senator evan bayh here next. and retailers ditching the boys and girls section in the toy aisle to make toys that are gender neutral. is that what kids need today? we'll debate. heart healthy, huh?!

6:17 am
will be helping him out on the other side of the aisle. most of the democrats when it comes right down to it won't want to neuter their president in a moment like this, such a high risk vote. so i think the senate unless there is a filibuster will be behind if. the real issue is in the house. if i had to guess, i think it would be a cliffhanger. i think he'll win by one, two stroet votes at the 11th hour. >> democrats in the house will have to swallow an awful lot of principle to vote for this after going acce7 years after preside bush. ironies abound. >> there are a lot of ironies here and i think the best appeal to the left is on the use of chemical weapons against a civilian population including apparently killing hundreds of children. this sort of thing hasn't been done against civilians since adolf hitler gassed millions of his civilians in the second
6:18 am
world war. so, yes, there is a pais an ele. but the gassing of children will resonate and will convince enough of them to stand with the president. but not the by a lot. >> so what if he doesn't get congressional approval, will he move forward? we're getting mixed signals. >> he can, but it's a real disaster because at that point, he'll have no international support or -- you talked about ironies. the one nation standing with us, the french. >> yes. >> some ironies there. but domestically, if he has no international support, if congress has voted no, he can go forward, but that makes it very hard and i think the likelihood is that he would not. and again this is such a high stakes roll of the dice, at the end of the day, i think a bare majority will decide not to neuter our president before the world and toy boehner, eric con
6:19 am
tore, they don't want to see a country weakened before the rest of the world. >>neutering the president, is that justification? >> no, but it's beyond the issue of president obama. from the city presidency is an institution and second point is the deterrence of other back actors. iranians are looking at this. if we allow assad to act with impunity, they will know that all of our statements about their nuclear program are meaningless. the north koreans will know that their nuclear program can go lady. hezbollah can act with greater impunity knowing we won't counter what they might do. so all of our enemies will be be emboldened to take steps against the national security interests in ways that will be very harmful in the long term. so it's not just about the prestige of this president. it's about the institution of the presidency and deterring bad

6:27 am
>> what foods would you take to lower cholesterol? >> oatmeal. it's really good. if you can get a raw oatmeal like raw oatmeal cookie, for example, one lucky duck has some on line, it absorbs. it won't do it overnight, it might take a month or two, but i did it for my mom. i said please start eating oatmeal. >> we had a subject on earlier about juicing. it's a trend. >> not steroids. actual juice. >> yes, real juice. >> and we are going to do a segment on juicing. because people think because the athletes are doing it that it's okay. yes, okay they got caught and it's not right because it enhances their performance, but it's not right for the body. look at what they were like before they juiced and look at them after. >> taking steroids. >> and you can take in a lot of calories juicing, too. >> the real screwsing. >> which one are where he talking about now? >> fruit juice. >> and do you like that? >> i like juice.

i don't like particularly just fruit because it's a lot of sugar. if you are taking something that is just a fruit juice, add some water to it. so the rule is 2/3 to 1/3 water. >> it's a pleasure meeting you. >> are we done already? >> we are. like that. >> today at 4:00. >> and tomorrow at 4:00. >> and tomorrow, too. thanks. you aren't so tongue tied after all. thank you guys for supporting me. >> you got it. up next on the rundown, retailers ditching the boys and girls sections of the toy aisles to make the aisles gender neutral. is this a good idea? and kids heading back to school. parents at work. what are the pets supposed to do when they're home alone? we have all the gadgets that will keep them occupied happy and out of trouble. my asthma's under control. i get out a lot... except when it's too cold. like the last three weekends. asthma doesn't affect my job...
