wars story has a different news hook with senator cruz reference to darting vader. >> luke, i am your father. >> delivers every time. thank you so much. namerica lives starts right now. >> and we begin with a fox news alert. dramatic tension diagramming to an end in the senate as the upper chamber prepares a procedural vote to defollow-upped obama care and fund the government. the senate vote on a motion to proceed and if they do expect it to happen. debate can begin on the bill itself. it follows a marathon floor speech from texas senator ted cruz who came to an end by noon. cruz railed against obama care that is a liberal train wreck and took shots at fellow
10:01 am
republicans and did his best da rth impression though i thought it sounded loy yoda. here's the latest. hello, mike. >> that procedural vote is under way to get the process moving forward to fund the government for a short period of time and defund obama care. senate democrats want to take out the defunding part and want the process to move. after 21 hours on the senate floor, ted cruz, the texas senator left the floor an hour ago and clearly tried to rally the american public and made a last a pole to the colleagues. >> if we listen to the constituents the answer is defund the bill that is not working and that is hurting people in part- time work and driving up health insurance premiums and causing millions to fear they will lose their health insurance! i will close at the
10:02 am
time is wrapping up. at noon we'll have a prayer and i think it is fitting that this debate conclude with a prayer. >> cruz had to stop and left the floor an hour ago for the senate to start a new legislative session. he tried to get washington to listen to the american people and frame the debate for the american public. after the marathon session. leading democrats suggested it was a waste of time. >> for lack of a better way of describing this. it is a big waste of time. the government is set to shut down in a matter of hours, just a few days. >> we need to create jobs and build a strong economy. this kind of desperation doomsday from tea party and septemberor cruz is going to hurt us. >> bottom line, all republicans want to te fund obama care. there was a difference of
10:03 am
opinion over tactics and some republicans want to get it passed to give the house led by john boehner time to respond with another bill. if they don't have much time they may be forceed to wallow what the senate democrats passed. >> the procedural vote is beginning in the senate. keep us updated. >> the cruz speeches is over and now the attention goes to democrats. they have to step up and vote for a increasingly unpopular health care law. all right. chris, next move in the chess match where are we? >> we have a irpt mediate move as mike pointed out. house republicans get a headache and try to figure out how to get through this. once they have threaded the needle on it in the senate you
10:04 am
will end up with a vote where harry reid needs to get 51 democrats in his conference on poored to say yes, we want not only do we like president obama's health care law but we will block efforts to defollow-upped it. that is not i good feeling if you are a democrat from alaska or arkansas or louisiana or north carolina places where the people have a republican lean and the law is more unpopular than it is in the rest of the country. >> republicans have named those septemberors and democrats in the red states but any chance any of them vote with republicans, in a way that is convoluted and side with the republicans in the fight over the funding issue. >> harry reid doesn't have an unlimited number of tickets.
10:05 am
he can let go some. but he needs 51. and that means, somebody is going to draw the short straw. there will be democrats, it is not inconcievable that there would be democrats that vote with the republicans on. this but harry reid can't have a stampede but he will allow a certain number. he has the opportunity to let a now people go, but how many will want to if you are a senator from las list? or mark pryor from arkansas and maryland rue and kay haggen in north carolina. you want to make sure you have your ticket and so you don't have to face the voters and who say you had a chance to stop and you wouldn't do it. >> we saw senate majority leader harry reid and said you wasted a lot of time and we need to get it back to the house.
10:06 am
it will ping-pong back and forth. we are final lowlands that is the body responsible for taking the heat if the government doesn't get funded. there are republicans that suggested what cruz did robbed them of the time and get something palatable out of the house. what happens in the house? what are republicans planning for as they may get a bite at the apple? >> i don't think that senator reid is agonizing over the difficulties of the republican house. the intention of the senate would give it to them with little time and the house couldn't monkey with it. and what we are getting close to speaker of the house will bring forth a short term and matter of days continuing resolution to cover the gap so that the government doesn't shut down and buy more time for the house to have more negotiations on what to put in. there we have two shut down clocks running in the same time.

state john kerry. it could have a chilling affect on our gun rights in our own country. >> supporters say the measure will stop the illegal tracking in weapons. critics call it global gun control and here in the united nations, secretary of state john kerry signed the united nations armed trades treaty. it is a controversial measure and the obama administration signed on to. aimed at trying to stop the small illegal weapons that flood hot spots in the globe spectacularly in africa and called for imposing controls on the trade of small arms and weapons and signing the treaty secretary of state kerry addressed american concerns that it would violate the second amendment and sovereigntyon grun rights. it would not affect u.s. law and
10:10 am
affect gun possession, but it imposed standards on the world to make it safer. >> this is about keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorist and rogue actors. this is about reducing the riffing of international transfers, of conventional arms and used to carry out the world's worst crimes. >> opponents blast and the nra said the obama administration is once again demonstrating its contemptor our right to keep and bear arms. it is an invasive registration scheme and others say it will not work. >> it will influence only the law- a boyding because only they will uphold the treaty. places like the united states will be affected far more by it than syria or iran.

>> president obama facing new
10:15 am
criticism over his tha w over iran. there is a lot of anticipation and build up from the white house a head of the un general assembly between a sideline meeting of the two leaders and president obama mentioned it yesterday saying he was opening the dorto new talks for the iranian program and iranian president rouhani said no thanks. they join us live. all right. what do you make of this? the white house sending out signals and maybe they will brush pass each other and handshake or same lunch. none of that happen. >> none of that happen. it is like a chick flicking he's not into you. that's what is happening. white house and president obama wants a deal. he's tried to play hard to get and accomdating and the iranians don't so many to be interested. what are they interested in, playing for time.
10:16 am
what everyone assumed the deal would be for iran. we would drop the safrngszs and their economy and welcomed in the world economy while they gave up nuclear weapons program in exchange. that's not going to happen. as they play for time, the only deal that is open to president obama 6 or 18 months from now, we'll give in on the sarngzs and they will pretend to get rid of nuclear weapons and we will pretend to believe them. nsanctions has been going on for years. and this is what the rue row had to say with an interpratter. >> the sanctions are violence pure and simple. whether call smart or otherwise. unlateral or multilateral. the sanctions violate inalienable human rights. the right to appease and
10:17 am
development and rights to health and education and right to life. >> there is a lot in there. but first of all, that's the answer to the president's speech let's let diplomacy work. that was the response from president rouhani. >> he wrote the speech before he saw president obama's remarks. didn't sound very friendly? >> no. why. i think the iranians have suffered under the sanctions. he is making it sound like it is hurting the woman and children and babies. they have a fund of international finances they could use. they are not dipping into. it what he wants to make is a case lift the sanctions and maybe we will talk. sanctions have hurt them but not enough. they think they are on the way to nuclear weapons and so close they will get them. how did reagan win the cold war
10:18 am
examinally. he didn't invade soviet union. but makes it so difficult that their own people said look. we have to have a change. >> two ways to look at this. potential snub. the administration said it was too complicated and there is a lost internal politics and tough for president rouhani and president obama to get together. should our leader look at this as a badge of honor. they don't want to talk or move a head. or does the world think that rue row have the other hand. >> iranians will come back and tease us again to hope for accomdaugz. what the united states needs to do is develop our own energy and use the united states economic prowess with investment and set ourselves up as competitor to those guys. iran is a gas station.
10:19 am
they don't refine their own oil. if they are economically on their knows now. imagine how much they would hurt in a good way from our perspective if we were self sufficient. then they would have to come around. >> you mentioned rushia. the president tock a jab at putin saying that america happens to be exceptional after putin said it is not good to epicourage people they are exceptional. where does that relationship stand? >> that editorial of putin was rich. he ran for reelection on the basis of russia being exceptional and for him to critize the united states. what happen in the middle east is stunningment 40 years american presidents have gotten the positioned and what obama did over syria begin that up. who is calling the shots in the
10:20 am
middle east and decide if syria gives up the chemical weapons is not obama or kerry. it will be putin. >> thank you for lending your expertise. >> and the president continues his speech. there is another one. there is concerns about former president clenton and the impact on hillary clinton if she decides to run for the white house. and a brand new debate over a historic city symbol. one group is taking issue for a field that is here well over a century. and does the local government have to alter the image. >> it is an intrusion of religion in the world of government and the world of government and religion should be separate as called for in the first amendment of the united states constitution.

>> less than a week to go before the next major milestone in obama care begins. and the white house is pushing hard to settle the law. and president obama using scare tactics and senior white house
10:31 am
affairs. hi, wend all. >> getting young healthy people to sign up for the exchanges is essential part of coping coasts down and the exchanges don't begin operating until the first of the year. and the new health and human services report. and the white house said most uninsured americans will pay less than a hundred a month. even if it is the last chance toun do the affordable care act. the president is show casing the benefits. >> because of how we are paying providers and health care costs have grown as you pointed out mr. president at the slowest rate in 50 years. we are bending the cost curve and getting at the problems that are creating the deficits that occur in medicare and medicaid. >> he made his own attempt to expand health care coverage in
10:32 am
the 1990s and failed and agreed with mr. obama that health care reform is an economic issue. president obama called mr. clinton the secretary of explaining stuff. and republicans say endorsing obama care, the former president and his wife hitched their wayingons to it. nhillary clinton decided to own obama care so in 2016 when it falls apart and the economy is in shambles because of obama care i will call it clinton care. if it is a success hillary clinton will win the president so and if it is a failure that i think it is going to be she needs to embrace the owning of the bill. >> president obama said the 2012 election was a reverundum on obama care. >> wendal, thank yo
10:33 am
cloture is invoked 100 to nothing. they needed 60 votes. it is a procedure technical thing to move toward to the next thing. and we'll keep you updated and the first hurdle passed without a single objection. >> monica is a syndicated radio talk she host and christen is a columnist for the daily beast. welcome to you both. >> how are you. >> i will start wu. it has worked well in the past when former bill clinton stepped to support some of this and gave a boost to the president. do you think it will work this time? >> it certainly can't hurt. it might be able to help. one of the problems in the polls is that people don't understand what is in the bill. what is in the law and they don't understand exactly how to
10:34 am
sign up for it and these types of things. the more you talk about it and bill clinton and not just democrats like these days and a popular figure can help obama care, you know, possibly improve what people think of. it >> monica he had 2 or 3 years to sell it and they are spending million on the effort. the more we poll this. nbs and wall street journal and the less popular it gets. the more people learn less they like it. >> now it is ramped up shannon and we are seeing real fallout from obama care in terms of higher premiums and taxes and worning workers losing work and hours and unemployment affected and people losing health insurance and overall security. you will see the numbers climb in terms of opposition. politically is it a smart move
10:35 am
to turn to the clinton. but they are a two piece step. she is playing coy but she is running for president in 2016 and the fallout assuming obama care falls apart as it is and likely to continue doing in really horrific economic ways, she is going to have to step up and spend most of her time defending obama care or talking about how she will fix it. it is not a position she will want, but a position she is ado adopted. it is what she wanted in 93 and 94. she was not able to get it done. she set the original blue print in place for obama care. she inherited this on so many levels and will be forced to defend it. >> a smart strat edgic move? it is the law of the land and
10:36 am
there could be bipartisan fixes along the way. and we have seen some. but it was a gamble by her. popularly it is not popular among the public. was it a gamble for hillary clinton to enforce it in 2016. >> it hasn't started yet. and i continually have to hear how it destroyed the economy and made taxes go up and all of these things. we have to wait and so what happens. and for some reason that obama care is a horrific failure that the republicans are claiming it is going to be. it think the more people have access to it they will probably like. it but if that happens, hillary clinton can say, we want to have health care for all people. this is a effort to do that and need to tweak it to make it better. i don't buy in the fundmental programis of it destroying the
10:37 am
economy. that doesn't seem true to me and that is not anything that suggests to happen. and the polls among the people who disapprove, a tiny minority want to throw out the law. they want to fix the law. but the view of throwing out the law is a fringe view. it is about 20 percent of the country. >> all right. evidence included. plenty of employers are saying they are cutting hours and laying people off and not hiring. monica that is not what hillary clinton will want to run on if that plays out in a macko way. >> that's right. we have a lot of major industries talking about how it has already wreaking ha voc on their health insurance and hours and health insurance and their ability to hire workers. they are afraid they will not be able to cover them. we have so many companies and
10:38 am
businesses and industries saying we'll take all of the workers and throw them in public exchanges and rather pay the fine. you have evidence already even though the law hasn't kicked in yet. and you have a fallout happening already. can you imagine when it is kicked in? and remember the irs. they will be enforcing obama care for regular americans. if regular americans are having daily run ins with the irs over health care, i am telling you, it is going to wreak ha voc on the democrat party. we talk about 2012 and barak obama got reelected and while that is true, go back to 2010 when the republicans and conservatives were running against obama care, they were able to turn over the house and make huge gains and again, that is long before obama care became a reality. once it is affecting businesses and individuals, it is not going to be a positive thing for the
10:39 am
economy and certainly not for the demdeps and particularly not for the mother of obama care, hillary clinton. >> we'll so. unless either one of you have a crystal ball we'll have to wait until 2014 to see how it pays out. >> a new legal battle brewing after one group tries to do away with a city symbol because of a cross. it is a image plastered all over the town. and a crew looking for buried treasure hitting pay dirt. one man's theory of a yellow brick road off of the coast of cape cod and the century's old treasure that is in the end.

10:45 am
complaint. >> i know everybody loves when we scream and disagree. it is to hard to do it on this one. it is ridiculous. as you said. it is one person in a little city and look at the cross. it is behind the heart. and you have a heart and it could stand for several things and been there forever and offended one person. this clogs up a legal system that prevents real justice from being done and it is ridiculous. >> one of the local historians said the two men who founded that and two founders. deland and stetson, they were dopely religious men and that was part of the founding of the city and 131 years old and to do away with it is to rewrite the history of the city. >> for that reason, if it made in a court of law, it would past the lemon test. it would be okay to keep the
10:46 am
symbol, why? listen tis a picture of a heart, cross and an anchor. it is not jesus, mary and joseph. and who is it offending? >> it has been around 131. and we still use the word god on our currency. you know what i think. the atheist get bored and they want to file lawsuits because they can. >> shannon, as you know being down in the supreme court all of the time, god is a part of our government. we can say separation of church and state, but the supreme court said it all of the time and founding fathers in the federalist papers and religion is a part. not supposed to interfere. but in god we trust. that is written right over the judge's head. no one said we have to be 100 percent devoid of and religious references in government stuff. >> we can't sanitize god out of everything we do.
10:47 am
thank god. >> on that note. this is what the group has to say. the seal symbolizes christian thelogical virtue and that means the government is endorsing religion. if they are trowely endorsing religion it is not okay. >> if the government is entangled in the religion it is notoc either. but this is just a simbomb been a round forever. it is not the government's way in deland, florida you have to be a christian and we'll only give money to christian schools. that's not what it is at all. it is historic more than religious and that's why the atheist lawsuit will fail. >> it will fail. it may have enough to get in a courtroom but the judge will use one person offended by this? >> i am offended, too. i don't own a boat and there is an anchor. >> do you have a heart? >> we are told that the city
10:48 am
hasn't specifically responded to the group as of the date of the article. but they are taking the group letter seriously. in this day and age, i would imagine city officials have to take these. this is one of many legal challenges like this. and this city may have to spend money to defend thissine if they will win. >> they will have to defend it and then it could be default if they don't. they have the lawyers on account. it would be tragic if a judge in my opinion mistakenly rowelled yes they win and take the cross off of everything. hundreds of thousands of dollars to take to change all of the seals all over the small town. >> donna what about the city saying go pound sand. i am not changing it. >> if i were running that town that's what i would say. it would cost way more to apiece them than to defend it and most
10:49 am
likely win. if the city weighs options they will defend. >> does this group think they have a chance to win or is it about making a statement. >> i am not sure it is a group. >> americans united for separation for church and state. >> it started with like one anonymous complaint. that is what the judge is going to look at in the first place. it ticked off one person and brought in a national group to use as a test case. and i don't think any judge regarding this lawsuit is going to be a poster judge so to speak for having any indication or symbols of god and banned from our society. >> both of you know. those judges are out. there we'll keep an eye on this particular legal issue and we'll update folks when we hear b more about it. >> thank you. >> exclusive new details, and the aftermath of the benghazi

confusion reigns even as the investigation begins into a violent four day siege into a shopping mall. now as investigators look into the smoulderring rubble there. they say they expect to find more bodies. kenya's president calling for three days of mourning as the reality of this carnage sinks in.
11:01 am
the attack including pregnant women and six members of the security forces. 175 wounded. >> we are certain that innocent people will be killed. in solidarity all of them lost their loved ones. >> hello conner. >> reporter: hello. you are right there is a lot of confusion on the ground there. the stand off is over. there were reports today of gunshots. rather attack tick being used by the security forces to clear rooms to make sure there was no lone gunman hiding in the rooms. clearly while they say it is
11:02 am
over. there is some concern that maybe somebody was lingering in the shopping mall. today investigators began combing through the debris in the wreckage there. their hope is to piece together who is behind this attack. security analysts say this was a well-planned attack. the weapons appear to be stock piled inside the mall before the tack. right now, authorities are saying that 61 people were killed including also six members of the security forces. five of the attackers are also believed to be dead at least five. 11 in custody, but according to the red cross, there is fear that as investigators get in there they will find more
11:03 am
bodies. more than 40 people still missing. they are trying to piece it together. it could take several days. thank you for keeping us updated. as connor was reporting, the kenyan government added to the confusion. here is the timeline. after the attack began on saturday, the national police announced the area was surrou surrounded. early tuesday morning the police sent a message on twitter reading quote, we have triumphed. late yesterday, the president announced that they were taken into custody. un weapons investigators

11:05 am
would make a dent in this civil war 100,000 lives estimated to be gone? >> i think it would be helpful. >> this is a campaign to wake people up to the dreadful consequences of use of chemical weapons. but we see their horrific potential in places like damascus where the americans allege 1400 people were killed and the un team is trying to check out 14 alleged instances of use of chemical agents and they are trying to put this together. but yes, it is very important that the world view be as outraged as president obama talk talked about being. >> general, what do you make of where we are in the midst of
11:06 am
this agreement? are they to be trust ed? do we trust that they will be fully destroyed? >> well, i think first of all, everybody is for getting rid of these chemical weapons. but the fact is we are dealing with assad and the russians. they are dealing with stableising syria and assad and maintaining their relationship. i think what is happening is assad is being legitimized by dealing with him for the next year or two over these chemical weapons. it is unlikely that he will give them all up. although his list was
11:07 am
comprehensive. it is likely that he will stay in power. that is the way that we are heading. that is tragic. it is a lost opportunity to change the balance in the region and shift it away from the iranians. this is &ker point for them. they will reap the benefit for them in the long-term. >> judy. have we missed an opportunity here? has the us missed an important window here with iran? >> no, i don't think we have. i think we are on the verge of getting rid of an entire class of weapons from the middle east? if the syrians continue under russian pressure to get rid of these weapons, obama will be able to claim victory no matter how sloppy the process was by which he got there.
11:08 am
there are a lot of ways that get rid of those chemical weapons. if we can do that, keeping assad around until those weapons are gone may be worth the trade off. >> there are plenty of sceptics who would be happy to be proven wrong. >> thank you. >> this is a fox news alert as we first showed you last hour. the fbi just releasing new video of the deadly shooting in the washington navy yard. the fbi showing the gunman as he carried out the attack. showing that he acted alone. jennifer griffen is live at the pentagon with more. >> there were chilling detailed presented by the fbi in what will be it's final press conference in the navy nard

11:10 am
weapon closed quote is believed to reference these electromagnetic waves. >> he thought he was being controlled by these magnetic waves and he etched these words into the barrel of the gun. and etched into the torment "not what you all say, better off this way, my elf weapon". >> it was a program for submarine communications. however, conspiracy theories exist which miss in interpret it's use of manipulation of unsuspecting citizens. >> it is clear that he was suffering from some sort of

on the state exchanges. >> let me ask you this, there has been talk about people who don't have great jobs and they are at the bottom of the rung. the concern is to make sure that they have options and get them covered. if you are saying that there are cutting edge and great hospitals that are saying we are not going to take part. people who can pay out of pocket to go to ucla are going to have different options than those who don't. you can have a plan, but your plan might not cover the mri that i say you need or the pet scan. that is one point. the other point is that 133 to 400% of the poverty line is going to qualify for medicaid. that is good. but who is taking medicaid? what if it isn't taken by the doctor that you want to see? >> thank you always and you have

new developments in an exclusive story that we broke here on fox news. we are learning what those dangerous people got their hands on. adam is live with more. we first were told there were dozens of weapons taken. first of all, this team went in after the benghazi attacks. they had been briefed before the dangerous situation. the special forces team would go and train libyans to fight terrorism and develop their own special forces force. in august, a few weeks ago. that team as they returned back to the villa with their own
11:33 am
kits, the place with the training camp was raided and taken were vehicles like these. gmv's 23 of these humv's that have a range of several hundred miles. those were taken as well as hundreds of weapons. including glock pistols are missing and what a lot of people were telling us. is that the night vision technology is what is the most disturbing. it is not easy to get but also another type of night vision. day and night which includes a target beam. all of these items gone and now in the hands of groups in libya. these groups in line with the brother hood.
11:34 am
these men were training forces to fight and now have the equipment. in the meantime, the same team that has been pulled were the guys that went out and got the information. as of this hour, no one has been arrested in this investigation. although, i was cautioned late last night. but as one diplomate said, it has taken a long time up to this point especially when the information about these suspects was given to the officials back in january. >> adam, thank you very much. very, very interesting information. a lot of questions til to be answered there. the united states signing onto a treaty that regulates global arms training. secretary of state john kerry calling it something to keep the world safe.
11:35 am
>> this treaty will not diminish anyone's freedom. in fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess and use arms for legitimate purposes. >> the national rifle association blasted the move claiming it would require information on buyers. this treaty threatens ownership with an invasive registration scheme. it would oppose ratification of the treaty. gentlemen welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> all right so the secretary, secretary kerry said that the u.s. is proud to have worked on this. it gets us closer to higher level of peace. what is wrong with that. it is bologna.
11:36 am
the treaty signs it into an agreement with other countries. it would have to be ratified by the senate. we would be giving up the sovereignty of the united states. the rules and regulations for how guns would be guided by the inn internation international body. i refusion to believe that allen would back the idea of giving up that. the second issue i own a sigsower pistol. it comes from germany. this would require that the u.s. maintain a registry of the end u user. i'm the end user. >> allen, i'm guessing any type of what the nra is calling a de
11:37 am
facto registry and what would be the practicalities, you know the senate is not going to go for that. second amendment? >> here is what i know. i'm almost the authority on what i know but not totally. in this treaty, it says it is pursuant to national law. any of this stuff that the nra is putting out. or the gun advocates is absolutely untrue. the treaty itself states that this is all pursuant to national law. the nra has no credibility. they have gone around for years claiming that the obama administration wants to confiscate people's guns that is not true. they are wrong about what they are saying about this. >> that is the strong happenend.
11:38 am
>> they are pay people to lobby on their be half and as far as the issue of fconfiscation we have seen that happen. >> no we have not. >> the gun laws have nothing to do with confication. that is untrue it is a lie. it is untrue. in your own state of new york they passed a law after the sandy hook shooting that passed a law that after a certain number of bullets in the magazine has to get rid of the gun. >> that is not confiscating guns. >> what is the difference in the government requiring you to down the gun or -- >> that is about going forward. that is about guns already in potion that is not accurate
11:39 am
number two it is about actually limiting the capacity of guns not confiscating them. >> shannon here is the difference. if you pass a treaty and you ratify it in the senate. when this international group says united states you are not keeping track of the guns in your country, that is the in tent of the att. if they tell the united states that you need additional laws that regulate where those guns are and keep track of them. the treaty can force the united states to do things that the representatives cannot do on their own. if we were dumb enough to sign onto this treaty and ratify it. >> it does not force the united states to do anything that the law does not already call for. yoo there has been obsessijectir
11:40 am
this. why would secretary kerry sign for this when there is a good chance that it is not going to get past the u.s. senate? >> it is bipartisan in that from rural areas and democrats who think that this inflicts gun rights. it gets guns out of the hands of rogue nations. the whole purpose of this treaty is to stop the sale of guns. it is being sab luteally 180% misrepresented. >> it does involve small arms and a level of tracking weapons. we have to leave it there. i know you can do a whole other hour on this. >> wonderful. >> good to see you both. >> see you later. >> thank you. >> they deliver your packages. but could your mail carrier save your life? >> we are going to tell you
