6:00 am
to those in this nation is remarkable. thank you for being here, to all those who served. >> and thank you so much for watching. hemmer and mccallum are next and don't forget, the after the show show coming your way. bill: thank you, guys, good morning. a whole new week. stunning news out of southeast asia. 10,000 fear dead, entire towns washed away. one of the most powerful storms to hit land destroys parts of the philippines. look at new pictures and devastation from the air. u.s. marines are now on the ground. they're getting supplies, the survivors can be nearly impossible. too many images to go through today. good morning, i'm bill hemmer on a monday as we start a new week. welcome to "america's newsroom." martha: unbelievable images. good morning, everybody, i'm martha maccallum. a marine commander said, every house he saw was destroyed and quote, bodies everywhere. bill: the typhoon hit with wind
6:01 am
reaching nearly 200 miles an hour bringing a 20-foot storm surge strong enough to put this massive tanker onshore on top of homes. >> incredible. survivors are picking through what is left. you can see there is not much. many appear to be in shock and wander the streets and beg for help. bill: mike, from manila, what is the latest there? >> reporter: what they're saying now, bill and martha, they have basically, are saying that america has returned. this is the spot where douglas mcarthur made his famous statement i shall return. america has returned and america returned to help and that is what the people in the city right now are saying. two u.s. marine c-130s filled with relief goods have been doing non-stop flights into the city doing what they can to help. obviously the philippine government has been there since
6:02 am
day one. they have been doing all they can but they don't have planes that can fly at night and into such terrible situations and this is where the marine and aviators really needed to bring the aid to these people. it is, they have materials. they have the food. they have the water and what not to bring to these places but they just don't have the means. that is where the united states military is now really impacting in these areas and will be for the next few days until the situation improves, bill and martha? bill: mike there, was a report 10,000 could be dead as we just mentioned. there is another report suggesting only one thousand confirmed fatalities s there a way to square this discrepancy in the number? >> reporter: the philippine government has a very different statistic with what the philippine national red cross has and the reason for that is the philippines will not declare someone dead unless they have identified them. so the 1200, i think it is 31,
6:03 am
these are the body that is have been gathered. their names have been identified. if they're basically john does they list them as missing until they actually physically record ad body, they don't release that figure until they have actually identified where this person is from. that is the reason, that is part of the reason for that discrepancy. bill: mike, you're in the capital city of manila but the center of the storm was well south of you. how wide an area was impacted in the philippines? >> reporter: we felt it up here where i am in manila. it was no joke. you're talking about a storm that was, you know, probably worst storm in history is what everybody's, everybody's referring to it as and you're talking about a storm that was huge in terms of its impact. you know, think of, an f5 tornado that was 300 miles wide. that is pretty much the picture what it was. bill: thank you, mike allen, reporter in manila.
6:04 am
we'll be in contact with you throughout the morning. martha has more. martha: terrible images coming out of there the geography of company is part of the reason the devastation is so massive. "time" magazine said the philippines may be the most vulnerable country on the planet to tropical storms. it is literally all islands, swept through these warm waters covering 116,000 square miles. give you context that is about the size of arizona. it is spread out in more than 7,000 islands in that space, with estimated population of 100 million people. it is nearly impossible to evacuate those island when this kind of weather headed their way to get to people on higher ground. bill: mike cohen, said help is on the way from the u.s. military. some of it is already there. defense secretary chuck hagel has asked to deploy ships to the area. since 1990, 23 years ago, the
6:05 am
u.s. government has responded to more than 40 disasters in the philippines alone at the request of that country's government. for many people the u.s. marines is all they have now. martha: if you want to help, i know so many people do want to help, you can log on to our website. go to, there is a link in red on the front page a number of reputable organizations listed there that are providing aid and provide a way to help out. you feel so helpless when you look at the devastation and think back to this time here last year and hurricane sandy, anybody who has been through a small amount of devastation they're experiencing there can relate to the feeling being without a home and having lost loved ones. some of these families had 11 family members lost in the one day. it is awful and we need to do what we can to help. bill: as mike was pointing out some of the areas are very difficult to get to. the images will get unfortunately more graphic.
6:06 am
let's hope the number doesn't go higher than we have right now. five minutes after. martha: it's a new day and there is a new plan that is being floated to fix the problems with obamacare. this one could cost you even more because there are report that is the white house is looking to change the law again, how can they do that, is one very valid question here, to give subsidies to millions of people who are losing their health insurance under these new regulations. joining me is stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. stu, tell us about the so-called fix the white house is now reportedly considering. >> right, to fix the first broken promise will cost taxpayers and arm and a leg and may lead to a second broken promise this fix, very much a trial balloon, just a suggestion at this point, this fix would literally subsidize millions more people, to cushion the blow of having them thrown off their policy and forced to take a more expensive policy. people earning up to $50,000 a year, individuals, would get a
6:07 am
subsidy, five times the poverty rate. the government's own bean counters say this would cost $1.2 trillion between 2014 and 2019. that is money we don't have. if you have to borrow that money for the first fix, you end up breaking a second problem my which was, the obamacare will not add a dime to the deficit. the president is in a real bind here. this proposed possible fix costs you and i a fortune and could lead to a second broken promise, martha. martha: really strikes me, when all of this was first floated there were states that got out of the deal or got subsidies or ways to help them cushion the blow. the cornhusker deal comes to mind. there were all kinds of things given out to senators and congressman across the country to get them on board, to get them to vote. you have all these different stages of relief. you have our friend who has been on a couple of the times, i'm in the middle. i don't get a subsidy.
6:08 am
i can't afford the plan. reminds me of paul ryan's suggestion, during the election, give everybody a check ever $5,000 toward their health care plan. would that be a better way to solve the problem rather than messings up people who have a plan they already like. >> obamacare was to insure 30 million uninsured people. martha: right. >> it is turning out to be incredibly expense system. what if we offered catastrophic insurance to those 30 million people, $5,000 a head, that is a lot cheaper than chaos of obamacare than the rising cost that goes on and on and on. martha: really makes you think. stuart, thank you very much. you will do a lot more on this on fox business network coming up. >> thanks, martha. bill: after decisively winning re-election for a second election term, he did all the
6:09 am
sunday talk shows and letting loose on the debacle that has become the obamacare website. >> the president's biggest problem right now he has got to tell the truth and we have seen this in new jersey. i told lots of hard truths in new jersey didn't necessarily agree with but they give you credit looking them in the eye and telling them the truth. let peace get to that point. own up. tell the truth what is going on. then they worry about whether he can fix the problems f you're working out of a fantasy that these are not major problems that need to be fixed, and need to be addressed, this is what lots of us have been saying all along about the fact that this was just too big for the government to handle. martha: that's not all. governor christie also offered up advice for the gop as focus turns to the midterm and way out toward the presidential election as well starting to come into view. should the republican party listen to what governor christie had to say over the weekend? brit hume will weigh in with his thoughts on the full ginsberg, done all five shows.
6:10 am
and squeezed in a visit to jimmy fallon a big victory lap. bill: he tweeted everyone of them, right. martha: right. bill: "fox news sunday" was hot. looking forward to hearing from brit on a monday here. jam-packed show. latest breaking details from the philippines. some details are horrific. >> >> white house says the top tech guy is too darbiessy to talk to congress. congress is forcing its hand. congressman trey gowdy on the oversight committee what they want to hear this week. he is live next. martha: a birthday party over the weekend ended in complete chaos and tragedy. 20 people were shot and two teenagers lost their lives at a birthday party. we'll tell you the details. bill: richie incognito, he is talking in an exclusion tiff interview with fox sports. he says the world has him all wrong. >> i can just sit here and be accountable for my actions and my actions were coming from a place of love. no matter how bad and how vulgar
6:11 am
it sound, that is how we communicate. that is how our friendship was.
6:12 am
6:13 am
6:14 am
martha: well two teenagers are dead after a house party in houston went horribly wrong. police say it started as an birthday party for an 18-year-old girl but quickly erupted into chaos as after two people opened fire in the house. people say the situations at very least was unnerving. listen to this. >> i heard between five and 10 gunshots. and scared as you little bit. had the kids go upstairs with the wife and came out to the front window to see what the commotion was. martha: the birthday girl says her family did hire security guards for the event but that some people refused to be searched and snuck in through the back. police are still looking for two shooting suspects. bill: how about the shooting in new york over the weekend at the
6:15 am
ice rink outdoors? down over the weekend, shocker. wants to talk to the top white house technology official, a man by the name of todd park. they want to do that this week. congressman trey gowdy is on the oversight committee. he will be part of the hearing later on. good morning, sir, spartanburg, south carolina. a little bit of a delay for viewers at home. what do you need to know from todd park? >> initially i wanted to know why we were promise ad state-of-the-art website and we got a abacus and sundial. if this thing could be fixed for two months why didn't you have it up and running three years prior to october the 1st? i want to know what we got for our money. if this guy is the smartest guy in the class. we are told he is, a savant of sorts why is he just getting involved? where has he been for the last
6:16 am
three years. bill: the white house says, can't this wait? meaning to you and darrell issa. he has plenty to do right now and his hands are full. what would you say? >> bill, if the president has time to play golf, which he does and if kathleen sebelius has time to go to cocktail parties which she does, then todd park ought to have cometime to come to tell people he works for why they got such a poor product after spending half a billion dollars and three years. bill: do you expect that money to go higher? how much more do they need to spend to get it right? >> if they want the product to work they will have to spend. the first half a billion dollars didn't get the job done. to say it's a train wreck is an insult to train wrecks. it is doing very, very poorly. yes, it needs to be fixed. how much more money? who knows. that is one of the things hopefully someone will ask mr. park this week. bill: enrollment numbers are expected this week. i don't know if it is midweek or end of this week but what is your expectations when it comes to the enrollment numbers?
6:17 am
>> well, bill, if the enrollment numbers were good we would already have them. you and i both know that they are going to be dismal. the last estimate i saw was 1100 a people a day. i was not good in math but at 313 million people in the country, 1100 a day means we will get it done in about 800 years. which is a little later than i think people have a right to expect. >> jeffrey zeints, he drop ad bomb on friday afternoon when he came out and pretty much, he is the guy that the administration brought in from the outside from bain capital to go fix the problems, he was quoted as saying that is a long way from where it needs to be. perhaps an understatement but what is your sense about how much further and how much work and time is required now? >> well, as you noted in your opening it was down again this weekend t makes you wonder, bill, whether they tested this product at all which is where
6:18 am
i'm going to go with my questioning. when you have three years and a half a billion dollars it is not unreasonable to ask, when is the last time you tested this product end to end and what were the results because we have been led to believe that the results were abysmal. so why didn't they ask for a delay? we don't know how much more money is going to be involved. i know this. we haven't even gotten into the security. we haven't even gotten into whether or not your personal information is going to be protected. we're just trying to get on the website at this point. now what happens once you get on the website is not going to be pretty either. but after three years and a half a billion dollars and all the promise that is we were made, i think people have a right to ask this smartest kid in the class, what went wrong? bill: the hearing on wednesday. todd park will be the featured guest. trey gowdy from spartanburg. thank you for your time on this monday. >> yes, sir. >> martha. martha: so here's a question for this morning. is the health care debacle a golden opportunity for
6:19 am
republicans? some of them believe it could be. is it a rallying call for 2014 and beyond and what would republicans have to come up with an an alternative to be convincing? bill: also the miami dolphins are on the field on "monday night football." richie incognito on why he is not to blame the nfl might be. >> you've become the face of bullying in america. someone thinks of bullying they think of richie incognito. >> this isn't an issue of bullying but mine and john's relationship where i have taken stuff too far and i didn't know it was hurting him. to come. ♪ ♪
6:20 am
6:21 am
6:22 am
bill: break news. second gun man in last month's maul massacre in kenya has been
6:23 am
identified. the associated press reporting this. that man said to have lived in a somali refugee camp in kenya, home to 54,000 somalis in that camp alone. at least 67 were killed in that attack and al qaeda linked militant group based in somalia claimed responsibility for that. martha: richie incognito breaking his silence on the bullying scandal that has been rocking the nfl and has everybody talking. in an exclusive interview with fox sports incognito says he is not a racist and the whole thing is one big misunderstanding and part of quote, locker room culture. listen. >> there is one thing of saying that. another thing with a white man using the "n" word. >> that's -- >> how do you, how do you tell america, how do you expect anybody in america to believe you're not a racist? >> right, i'm not a racist and to judge me but that one word is
6:24 am
wrong. in no way, shape, or form is it ever acceptable for me to use that word even if it's a friend to friend on a voice mail. martha: so where does that leave him? steve harrigan is live in tampa with more. steve, a lot of debate over these comments. was it threatening or was it just locker room talk. what did richie incognito accomplish with this interview over the weekend you think? >> reporter: martha, richie incognito is trying to make the case that these racist messages were taken out of the context of the locker room. he said he himself received a message from martin which martin threatened to kill incognito's entire family. >> jonathan martin texted me on my phone. i will murder your hole f-ing family. now, do i think jonathan martin would murder my family? not one better. >> left that text for you? >> he texted me that. i didn't think he would kill my family. i knew it was coming from a
6:25 am
brother, coming from a friend, from a teammate that puts in context how we communicate with one another. >> reporter: incognito said that the two players. >> changed more than 1,000 texts back and forth in just the past year, martha. martha: wow. it is very interesting how this whole thing has developed. so tonight the dolphins will step on the field. they will take on the buccaneers in "monday night football." probably not the game the nfl was hoping to showcase tonight, right? >> reporter: that's right. they will be in the stadium right behind me in tampa. it will be the worst team in the league, the 0-8 buccaneers, against a team with having more problems, the miami dolphins, with a bullying scandal, a scandal that looks like it can drag on for weeks. martin has not made no public comment to the incognito interview but he is expected to meet with nfl investigators in california later this week. martha? martha: wow, steve, thank you very much. bill: so we've been batting this
6:26 am
around for a week now. martha: very interesting, with every new development and that interview. clearly the way that these guys talk to each other is not something most people can relate to in any way, shape or form. does he have a point? bill: is our question, is this just part of the game? is just the way the nfl is? @marthamaccallum, @billhemmer. what do you think? what do you think? martha: oh, i don't know. i think i wouldn't want my son to play nfl football. i governor the game and love to watch but if this is really the way they're communicating with each other i'm not -- bill: if your son could run a 4.540, make $20 million a year, you might come around. martha: i don't know, we'll see. >> fire away. lines are open. nuclear talks with iran, they're falling apart and congress wants more sanctions. did the administration get suckered by tehran? martha: we were getting on warpings all weekend that a giant satellite could crash anywhere, duck, it is coming at
6:27 am
you? didn't happen. burned up in the atmosphere. what is the deal with all this space junk and is it really anything to worry about? >> explore hears been hit. >> ah. >> astronaut is, she is off the structure. hey, we got our cards, honey! great.

6:31 am
be dead although the official death counts at the moment is right around a thousand. some of these aerial pictures we're getting in again today. we'll continue to stream this in and pass it to our viewers. the u.s. marines are on the ground to do whatever they can to access the hard-hit areas. place that is don't have communication and access and don't have food and clean water. so we're watching this today, when that typhoon, it was truly as advertised. just ripped across that southeastern asian nation. back there in a moment in the philippines. >> more on that coming up. and through the the day. back here at home meanwhile republicans may actually end up liking obamacare for the role that it could play in the midterms. that is what a lot of folks are talk about now and possibly the 2016 presidential election. gop candidates up for re-election seized on the president's broken promises and half apology as they put it. here is texas governor rick
6:32 am
perry. watch. >> the president said he is sorry for misleading some of those americans who thought they could keep their insurance plans. do you think that's enough? >> i don't think it is even close to enough. he need to stand up in front of the american people asay, you know what? i perpetrate ad fraud on you. martha: hmmm, we don't know about anything like that. brad blakeman joins us a former deputy assistant to george w. bush. kirsten powers, columnist for "the daily beast" and fox news contributor. good morning to you both. let's talk about the pure politics about this for the moment and how it plays out in the midterm elections. kirsten, what do you think? >> i think it is too early to tell exactly how it will play out. you have to remember the government shutdown and that did have an impact on the republican party. the question whether or not the shutdown and obamacare will end up being a wash or will obamacare sort of overtake the shutdown and really become more of a focus. since the shutdown is in the rear view mirror i think it is more likely as obamacare probably continues to be
6:33 am
problematic, it is going to be more and more of a problem for democrats unless somehow they can solve the problems that have been playing this rollout. martha: i mean look what happened in virginia, with the governor's race there and clearly, it appears that the issue helped ken cuccinelli quite a bit, brad. not enough to put him over the top but certainly a much different outcome anybody thought it would be before all of this started. feels like health care is something that stays with everybody a lot longer, is that true, brad? >> it is, because it touches every american. the fact is that obamacare has yet to be settled. the website is just the tip of the iceberg. fox is reporting today that the administration is considering giving a stipend to those who have their policies canceled. that could add $1.2 trillion to the deficit over the next 10 years. remember what the president said. another lie. he said that it would have no effect, obamacare on the deaf the sit, not one penny, period. these are the same type of
6:34 am
promises where the president is being called on and the american people are going to remember not one republican voted for this and senator enzi and others spoke on the floor while the bill was being argued and debated exactly what the flaws of this bill were and they're coming to reality. martha: goes back, i think, kirsten to the whole big government, small government issue and whether or not americans on the whole and these individual states as they go to the polls come 2014 and beyond, what their assessment what each person's individual assessment is, whether or not this whole system is working for them, because if it is looks like they're losing health insurance, it really comes down to how many people are helped by it and how many people are hurt in the end, does it not. >> it does. the thing you have to remember we are hearing a lot of stories about the people whose premiums have gone up but there are a lot of people whose premiums have gone down. so i think it does matter in the long run whether this is sort of a minority people it does seem right now it is a minority of people or if it end up being
6:35 am
more of a majority then i think it will play bigger now. it certainly hurts president obama in terms of, you know, coming out saying if you like your plan and can keep it, that clearly not being the case so i wouldn't minimize that but as a political issue we have to see, also look, if the administration is somehow able to fix this problem, that commit gait it as well. martha: i don't think, let's play debbie wasserman-schultz from overthe weekend. i want to get your thoughts on this sound bite. let's play night the peace of mind, those americans are going to have knowing they could never be dropped, denied coverage for the preexisting condition, preventative care without co-pay or deductible those are benefits americans are feeling and will increasingly feel as obamacare is fully implemented. i think, candy, democratic candidates will be able to run on obamacare as an advantage, leading into the 2014 election. martha: that is interesting. i mean how many democrats do you think at this point, brad, i want to get kirsten's reaction,
6:36 am
will run on success and peace of mind is not a phrase i heard associated with this so far yet. she is saying that is what will happen down the road. brad? >> look what you've seen this past week. 15 senators march into the oval office, democrats, senators at risk for their own re-election, forcing president to take that bogus interview for chuck todd of the nbc to give a halfhearted apology. this will be about shelves vision for house members up and third of senate will run away from the president like mary landrieu arrived with the president on air force one but nowhere to be seen at her own fund-raiser this is the kind of distance you will see. martha: republicans will have to offer someone. what will they say in the races? we told tu would stink and it does? that will not be enough for them. >> you're right. it is not enough to say i told you so. republicans in the spring have to offer alternative for obamacare realizing the which
6:37 am
still have the president for three years. getting rid of obamacare not an option but working with it and amending it an option. martha: will democrats stand by night hard to imagine very many people will have this as part of their platform. maybe if you're an extremely liberal districts, even then you have stories coming out of nancy pelosi's district of obamacare supporters who are enraged by seeing their premiums increase. so i think that's a bit of spin from debbie wasserman-schultz. martha: the big picture, i want to go back for a moment here, brad, this is a large philosophical question that comes up here because obamacare was put out there to be the most wonderful health care program that anybody could ever have, right? that you are going going to cover all the people who don't have coverage, 30 million people. looks like you could have given them each 5,000-dollars which of was paul ryan's plan, everyone was appalled by, give them a waiver program and thrown back in his face.
6:38 am
i wonder how people would feel about that program when they look back at it, facing kind of addition to the debt we may be facing to patch up this thing. >> look, again, republicans warned the american people that it was unsustainable as it presently existed. nancy pelosi passing the bill only to understand what is in it after it was passed. unions now asking for a carveout. the american people are coming to realize that what the republicans said was true but that is not enough. republicans have to offer an alternative. paul ryan is budget expert. they scoffed at him. he was right. if they took his deal, 5,000 it wouldn't be a trillion dollars. it would be a couple hundred billion dollars. martha: $150 billion a year to cover 30 million uninsured under that particular proposal which was basically as you say, scoffed at. kirsten what can president obama, democrats do to save this thing? anything do you think? >> first of all they have to be able to get the website work. i don't think we can really see how this works until the website
6:39 am
is working. it is very hard for people to know what kind of insurance they're going to have. i think he needs to do something about the people who are seeing their premiums double for not better insurance. for actually often times less good insurance. and he should keep the promise that he made which is if you have the plan you like you should be able to keep it. i think they need to figure out a way to fix that. martha: pretty expensive it look like. we'll see. skiers ten, brad, great to see you as always. see you next time. bill: one thing that is clear. this will be with us for years. martha: yes. bill: as long as you are are sitting here. martha: as long as we hang in there we'll be talking about. bill: unbelievable for a generation. new push for tighter sanctions on iran after talks hit a brick wall. france, france says forget it, no deal! kt mack far lan and what the obama team does next. martha: irs yet in the middle of another scandal. have you heard about this? this one is costing you a
6:40 am
bundle. is it time to demolish the irs and start over. that question has been raised but maybe today you think it might not be a bad idea. we'll be right back. >> i've would like to answer the committee's questions today, i've been advised by my counsel to certify nye constitutional right not to answer questions related to the subject matter of this hearing.

administration's approach to the middle east than i am now. we seem to want deals worst than anybody else in the region. thank god for france and thank god for pushback. bill: wow, that is senator lindsey graham over the weekend after negotiations to reach a deal with iran on its nuclear program have fallen apart. france apparently not okay with all the concessions given to tehran and refusing to go along with that. senator graham is pushing for a new round of sanctions against iran and congress. kt mcfarland is our fox news national security analyst. what do you think about where this goes now? why was not go good knew for france but good enough for the administration? >> look, you know, bill, the iranians are really good at negotiating. they will negotiate with us the same way they negotiated with reagan's national security advisor and bush's national security advisor. what they do is bait the hook. we bite and then they start reeling it in. that is exactly what they have done with this they have come to the table, promising a deal.

the deal that the united states and iran apparently agreed to was that iran would pause, part of its tew nuclear program, in exchange we would drop a significant part of the sanctions that wasn't even good enough. the french said look, pause, forget it. we want to halt the entire program and roll back part of it. that is not what the united states is going to agree to. so as a result iran will get what it wants. almost a nuclear power which in the middle east parlance is to be a defacto nuclear power. so they will all react as if iran is a nuclear power. by negotiating you stayed israel's hand. they can't blow up the negotiations with any kind of a military strike. then finally, we lifted the sanctions. that is our only leverage. you lift the sanctions, iran's economy recovers. then you have no way of forcing any kind of an agreement. bill: based on everything we heard the sanctions are working. it is really struggilng the -- strangling the government. pushing a lot of pressure on the government on behalf of its
6:46 am
people. senator mccain said this on twitter yesterday. france had the courage to prevent a bad nuclear agreement with iran. viva la france. the end part is certainly sarcasm. is this deal dead? did iran simply in the end just buy time? >> yeah. iran is definitely buying time because in that time they're doing two things. one israel can't really do anything to attack using military option because if israel blows up the negotiations, there is an attack. iran cancels negotiations. who is obama going to blame? he will not blame iran. he will blame israel. secondly iran continues to build its nuclear program while these negotiations go on. so if they're this close now they're getting this much closer as we negotiate. and even if they stop right here, it doesn't matter because the whole point of this agreement was to get the other countries in the region to not build nuclear stockpiles of their own. they are not buying that. the saudis already said, in fact
6:47 am
obama's former proliferations expert said the saudis have nuclear weapons on order from pakistan. so the whole point of this deal is to stop a nuclear arms race in the middle east and it is just going to do the opposite. bill: let me get to netanyahu in a moment. what do you think about when senator graham says this administration seems to want a deal more than anyone. why do you think of that? >> in fact every administration i've been a part of that, every administration, gets to the final year looking for his legacy. obamacare was supposed to be president obama's legacy. that is disaster. as you pointed out we'll live with that for generation. what does this president do, he does what nixon did, what clinton did, looks abroad for victory and success. they tried syria, that didn't work very well. libyan war was disaster, israeli-palestinian talks, they're a nonstarter so iran it is. any deal is better than no deal. that's why you have kerry rushing to geneva to sign a deal that wasn't there. bill: netanyahu from sunday.
6:48 am
listen here. quick reaction from the other side. >> iran gives practically nothing and it get as hello of a lot. that is not a good deal. i hope, i can only express my wish, the p5-plus-one use the time to get a good deal that takes away iran's nuclear military capability. bill: so that is what he wants. he believes the only way you get there is get tougher sanctions perhaps in congress. is that what's coming next? >> there will be a proposal, senator graham will propose tougher sanctions. even if they pass tougher sanctions and it wouldn't take effect for several months the administration we now see from press reports is already lessening the sanctions in anticipation as sort after goodwill gesture. you know what happens with the goodwill gestures with iran and russia, they pocket the goodwill gestures and move on from there and i'm afraid that already has started to happen. bill: k. mcfarland out of west babylon,
6:49 am
new york. thankthank you, kt. martha: now for something completely different. what miley did this time. oh, boy, here we go. everybody talking about this morning, bill. so we'll talk about. just a little bit. bill: had to go to amsterdam to do it. too many of the unknowns. arlington national cemetery, what a gorgeous day for that. president will participate in a wreath-laying ceremony there about an hour from now as we honor those who have served and have served on this 11/11, veterans day. >> forward march. the pain started up the back of my head

6:53 am
bill: some new video in from manila. video of evacuations still taking place three days afterwards. that looks like a church or an area for thousands to gather now. authorities say at least two million in 41 provinces have been affected by the typhoon. authorities evacuated 800,000 ahead of it. many evacuation centers like schools, churches, government buildings you see now, could notwithstand the wind and water surges. even where they went to take cover and refuge, even those places were, well they were under fire from the storm that we seldom if ever see in world history. watching this now out of the philippines. more when we get it here out of "america's newsroom." ♪

martha: we honor all those who served today on this veterans day. these are live pictures from arlington national cemetery, where later this morning the president will take part in a veterans day wreath-laying ceremony n florida a special milestone this veterans day. operation shoe box will pack its one millionth care packages. that is a lot of care packages. that happens at florida headquarters. the non-profit organization reaches out to soldiers all over the world and to retreats and personal care items and thank you notes for their service. janice dean is live from operation shoe box headquarters in bellview, florida, this morning. janice, good morning, tell us what is going on there. >> martha, we have hundreds of volunteers here at the villages in florida, who are packing so many packages, care packages. we'll get to the millionth, the millionth care package. look at all the wonderful
6:55 am
volunteers. here are some things they put in the care packages. very simple items you would get at a hotel. samples of shampoos and soap. you've also got kleenex, things that we take for granted. these things are worth gold for our troops in afghanistan, iraq. anywhere we have troops operation shoe box serves them. so razors, q tips, if they're in the mountains of afghanistan or iraq these items are worth gold to them and operation shoe box knows how important that is. so they get all of these volunteers every monday to come out and pack these items for boxes that go out to all of our troops and we are going to have the one millionth package today, martha. so exciting. i will be packing later on. we'll have a big fanfare. we'll have congressman here. we're going to have veterans that have seen what operation shoe box does for our troops. it is just a momentous occasion.
6:56 am
hard not to have tears in your eyes for what these people do, these volunteers. i want to introduce march re harper, the founder of operation shoe box who started this 10 years ago today. what happened? how did you come up with this brilliant idea. >> i had some of my own kids over there and i was getting feedback about all the stuff they need and it blossomed into this with sandy who is our director here in the villages. all the wonderful volunteers. we could not do it without them. but most importantly we need the support of the people out there to help us get these over there we have stockings that will be packed but we need money to get it over there. that's the bottom line so. >> it is not just about the materialistic, about get your name called, the importance of knowing that somebody is thinking about you. >> that is absolutely true. a lost soldiers over there don't get care packages from home. so it is important. >> okay. martha, bill, we've got to go. we'll be here all day today. thank you for supporting this. >> thank you for making the day for all those soldiers out there

actually progresso's soup has pretty bold flavor. i love bold flavors! i'd love it if you'd open the chute! [ male announcer ] progresso. surprisingly bold flavor for a heart healthy soup. martha: fox news alert on this monday, november 11th. americans help on the ground in the philippines. u.s. marines have arrived with vital food, water and generators as we see new images of pure destruction and heartache after one of the strongest storms ever pummeled that island nation. good morning once again, everybody, here in "america's newsroom," i'm martha maccallum. bill: i'm bill hemmer. good morning. a contingent of marines arriving in the philippines, a city of 200,000 flattened by the typhoon. the first outside help to arrive what is shaping up to be a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. the confirmed death toll nearing a thousand but some 10,000 are
7:01 am
feared dead. thousands upon tens of thousands survivors, packing what is left at the airport now. hours now turning into day, waiting for a way to get out. martha: awful situation for people on the ground. we have complete fox team coverage. claudia cowan on the massive relief effort underway in the united states. but first we go to david piper in bangkok. good morning, david. >> hi, martha, yes, the u.s. military is making good president obama's pledge that america will come to the aid of the philippines at this difficult time. as you said a detachment of marines arrived in tacloban, the city devastated by the typhoon. we understand a lost u.s. military planes and ships are used in a massive relief operation. the at same time vietnam would be hit by the typhoon. a massive evacuation of the close line was launched.
7:02 am
it seemed to miss the worst of it and the typhoon made landfall in southern china and been downgraded to a tropical storm. it is quickly turning into a humanitarian disaster in the philippines. hundred of thousands of people are in desperate need of food and medical supplies. typhoon highian struck the central philippines on friday packing winds of 200 miles an hour. leaving a trail of death and destruction in its wake. philippine officials fear tens of thousands of people may have died this one city, that of tacloban. houses were demolish and the local airport was wrecked. 2,000 are reported missing on the island of sama. philippines government is warning the scale of the disaster is overwhelming. an estimated 4 million people have been affected by the typhoon. hundreds of thousands of people are desperately in need of food and water. that desperation turned into some looting in some areas.
7:03 am
back to you, martha. martha: unbelievable, david, your heart breaks for people on the ground there. this typhoon is one for the history books. if the estimates of 10,000 dead are confirmed it, would be the deadliest storm in philippines history. it ranks as the 8th deadliest on the island nation's history. on landfall it sustained winds clocked at 195 miles per hour. wind gusts hit 235 miles an hour. the equivalent of a category 5 hurricane. bill: these relief efforts now starting to pour in. survivors are pleading for food, water and medicine. this is a massive undertaking made all the more difficult bit total devastation on the ground. many roads needed for distribution are blocked or washed away. claudia cowan is live at the filipino community center in san francisco where a relief effort is now underway there. claudia? >> reporter: bill, there are 640,000 filipinos who live in the bay area. this is a very tight-knit
7:04 am
community and one that is really stepping up to help, donating food, water, medical supplies and toiletries but organizer say what is really needed right now is money to get to supplies to relief workers on the ground. some turned this donation effort into a teachable moment. >> i've got my 11-year-old son with me here today. i'm trying to teach him the importance when someone needs help we help them. definitely they need help. >> reporter: a number of fund-raisers are being held as well. spirits were high in los angeles after 300 people took part in a fund-raising walk to raise money for the cause there were collections taken up at church services as well, amid reminders that a dollar in the philippines, bill, one dollar can feed a person 10 meals. monly obviously quite critical. bill: i imagine a lot of people want to make contact with their loved ones. they're still looking for their loved ones. can can you tell them or learning about that, claudia?
7:05 am
>> you're right, bill. obviously the storm knocked out communications lines. in fact one local church member who was visiting the philippines still has not been heard from. he is the monsignor actually of a local church with about 50 filipino members. they have been trying to contact him through emails and social media but without any luck. many people haven't been able to track down their friends and their relatives because the typhoon knocked out all communication networks. one church member described how the storm ravaged her sister's home. >> their roof was snapped bock. so it is like flapping in, it scared them. yesterday i get a reply, just a short message saying that they're okay but the house is gone. the good thing is that, just thankful they're alive. >> reporter: others are relying on the red cross volunteering in
7:06 am
the philippines to locate their loved ones. that effort along with the collection of more relief supplies will continue today the filipino community center in san francisco. bill? >> bill: claudia, thanks. many ways to help. among them unicef, supporting relief efforts by helping displaced families find access to shelter, clean water, food, vaccinations that group is airlifting more than a million dollars worth of additional supplies from its warehouse in copenhagen. you can donate online with the or call with the number on your screen. text to 864233. you can make donations online or call the numbers you see on your screen from either inside the u.s. or outside. you can also log on to for more ways to help in addition to what we are just reporting there. the way americans turn out for tragedies like these always give you a good feeling where we are.
7:07 am
so our best to the people. >> time to do it again. bill: yeah. martha: so they fought for implementation of obamacare every step of the way but now a bit of a shift from focus for the republican party from funding to fixing. house republicans set to vote on a bill that will allow americans to keep their health plans after millions resheaved cancellation notices. jonah goldberg, editor-at-large, and fox news contributor. >> good morning, martha. martha: we heard a couple of plans that could be fixed in this program. first of all, is that the way to go? >> this is really a serious disagreement and debate on the right. one of the first rules of politics when your opponent is whack themself in the face with semifrozen flounder let them do it for as long as possible. and what the, trouble the democrats are in is all of their own making. republicans have been warning about this for years and idea that the republicans should now
7:08 am
come in and swoop to the rescue and fix obamacare seems to a lot of people pretty ill-advised both politically and on the merits. i'm sympathetic to that. i don't know the effort in the senate and the house, which is ron johnson in the senate and fred upton in the house is a fix as so much of a partial repeal of obamacare. if you grand father all the people in to that #r their existing health care plans you're essentially destroying the exchanges because at the end of the day one of the reasons why the president was lying when he said that you could keep your plan is that the whole system was designed to make sure that you couldn't keep your plan. the system won't work if everyone is allowed to keep their plan. martha: think back to the cornhusker deal and all the things given out so the thing could pass in the first place. you have a list, 20 to 30 items long of people who get exemptions and fixes. you say to yourself at some point, the boat sinks when you try to put caulk in all the
7:09 am
different holes. risch limbaugh spoke about this the other day and here is what he had to say. >> it would be a gross error to delay the individual mandate. i think, i think what the republican party said, don't do anything, ted. leave it alone. it is going to implode. fine, do not let them delay this mandate. do not go along with that. you make everybody live with this debacle. martha: what do you think, jonah? >> as a political matter, at the national level i'm very sympathetic to that. it is very difficult to ask a lot of congressman and senators who doesn't vote for this bill to tell their constituents you have to suck it up. this is overturning your life. it is costing you enormous amount of money. sending your family into chaos. you will not have health insurance and we republicans need to teach the american people how bad obama is so we'll not do anything. that is hard political message for republicans to sell.
7:10 am
i do think, but it is funny, shows you how much sides get switched in all of this ted cruz said during the shutdown he thought it would be immoral and outrageous to punish the american people to show how bad obamacare is. now essentially that issue is, we have to punish the american people to show them how bad obamacare is. it's a tough strategic problem. i think people are too hard on the upton-johnson approach. what they're doing in fact the something the democrats will never allow to happen. but will put them on record once again voting for obamacare, defending the system. defending what's broken. i think that is probably good strategy for the republicans. >> we'll see. jonah, thank you very much. >> great to be here. thank you. martha: we'll see you next time. what do you think about this? goodness gracious. do we try to fix it? do we get back in there -- or go back to the original method of trying to derail it which they tried 38 times which didn't happen? send us a tweet @marthamaccallum and @billhemmer.

7:16 am
martha: easily won his race in new jersey. he took 60% of the vote on tuesday. he says it is result of him in large part creating 140,000 new private sector jobs in the state of new jersey and slowing the growth rate of property taxes were going to the moon in new jersey before he took office. brit hume, senior political analyst. >> good morning, martha. martha: interesting, did a big victory lap over the course of weekend. did jimmy fallon and sunday talk shows and our own chris wallace. what do you think he did. >> very interesting. i think he did fine. much more mellow in his interview with chris than perhaps we're accustomed to seeing him. to a lot of people that was attractive. his results in new jersey are quite striking because it is such a blue state but if he wants to be a national candidate he has got some work to do to carry this personality of his which is, at once potentially
7:17 am
very compelling. you can't take your eyes off him. he is just interesting. martha: indeed. >> potentially off-putting in some respects. that is sort of can-do belligerence he displays i think it reflects his aggressive approach and believes things that can get done and may welcome to lot of people but turn certain people off as well. martha: we get a mixed bag of responses in our tweets when asked how folks thought he did over the weekend with these things. look at rick perry, it is suggested that he may consider another crack at running president. here is what he had to say with chris at this interviews. >> he was a successful governor in new jersey. does that transcend into the country? we'll see in later years and months to come. >> is that code for he is a moderate? >> no. it is code for the truth of the matter is, we're all different states. as a conservative in new jersey a conservative in the rest of the country? martha: you know all of those notions, brit, are kind of tossed up in the air because
7:18 am
republicans have had a hard time winning at presidential level. looks at numbers chris christie brought forward in new jersey. he won with hispanics. he won with women and black voters and much bigger margins than the first time around. more they got to know him the more they liked him. does it translate nationally is the big question? >> here's the problem with that and republican strategist and you were king and might tap him, look at this guy's universal appeal. he can win for us let's have him but in party primaries in the republican party especially, the argument of electability has never been that powerful. people are looking in the primary season for somebody who thinks the way they do and who agrees with them on key issues and in some respects chris christie is indeed a moderate. so he has that to be concerned about. you look at somebody like rick perry raising in subtle way doubts about him, that would be kind of message from somebody who expects to run against
7:19 am
chris christie's right. rick perry is acting for all the world like exactly what he plans to do, he may not do it but certainly doing all the things you were doing if you were going to. you see the dilemma. you have a group inside the republican party, the tea party element, which the republican party badly, badly needs to keep in its coalition and to tap its energy for election day and whole season. and whoever, they need a candidate who can unite the wings of the party. and the tea party people are not persuaded by electability arguments and they don't like anybody who they think may turn out to be a moderate. they're absolutely convinced, against much historical evidence, i might add, you can't win a moderate. every time you nominate a moderate, mccain, romney, you lose. that is the problem, that is the hill christie has to climb. martha: but when you look at the origins of the tea party, brit, taxed enough already. it was about lowering taxs. >> it was, and spending tea
7:20 am
party has become to encompass a lot of things for a lot of people. social conservatives grouped into that as well. chris christie has a good record on lowering taxes in new jersey, on that front you would think they would connect quite nicely. >> you would although there were people who would argue, that the property taxes slowed their growth but property taxes continue to go up and tax burden remains heavy. despite 140,000 some jobs created the unemployment rate in new jersey still above the national average considerably. so, you know, you can argue that christie, economic and fiscal record flat or argue it round. i think we're going to hear both. martha: no doubt. we'll pick every piece of it apart before we're done i'm sure, especially if he decides to run. brit, thank you so much. see you soon. >> you bet. bill: interesting time. first we have the midterms though. martha: yeah. bill: they will be interesting too. two students facing expulsion from a university because they defended their

jim is here and hello to you, this was the interview everyone was waiting to hear. we found out more about their relationship and contact. what did he learn? >> we learned what went on. incognito released text messages and a lot of this is normal. and incognito is going to pay a price for using the racial slur. where is the code of conduct and standards? this is probably going on in other places so it will change things going forward. >> you said that last week. how so? how could this change the league? >> well, there are a lot of teams are hazing is not allowed and that hasn't been had the
7:34 am
case here. so a lot of things will not allow to lead like it is now. we will see a bounty gate where the commissioner is going to come down hard. things that were allowed in the past will not be. >> how would you police that? how will you keep on eye on that? >> well this is professionally handled and the code of conduct has to be different. i think most of the guys know right from wrong and know when they are doing things they should not be doing. some think they are above the law and above what is normal social behavior and that will

not be tolerated. you will have all of the coaches. these jobs are rare and difficult to keep and obtain and have. they are going to step in and stop the nonsense. >> 142,000 text messages. what is up? the world has gone crazy. i am good. it is insane, bro, but i don't blame you. it is the culture around the football and the locker room got to me. i guess that is part of his defense saying martin was having issues with the team and the two of them are okay with the relationship. >> it says i don't blame you or the team for what is going on. it looks like martin was a high
7:36 am
draft pick. he was loosing his job. the team had a four-game loosing streak and he couldn't handle what was going on. that is not to defend ritchie incognito for using racial slurs. he was thrown out of nebraska, oregon and rams and is on his way out. there is a harassment case. this isn't to say he knows right from wrong. but martin in this instance went to the principal for issues and we don't know the other half of the story. we don't know the dolphins or martin's story. >> the dolphins day mroont tonight for the first time since

it broke. >> a 2,000 pound satellite crashed into earth and went up in flames before it could do any damage on earth despite the fact people were running around saying the sky is falling. there was a lot of discussion about look out and duck and this is going to be coming at you and it appears that is not the case, right? >> whenever you have a satellite that is falling out oof space and no one knows where it will land people will talk about it. the european space agency said we were out of gas, we will fall and let you know how it is going. and every step of the way, it kept getting lower and lower they were posting updates. we can hear it. it is getting hotter. then it was gone. >> it does seem the more we put
7:38 am
up, everything goes up must come down. we have a picture of the space junk surrounding the earth and it is getting crowded. does something fall through eventually? >> there are no reports of damage from space junk >> unless you have seen gravity. >> there have been instances of the junk smashing each other in space and destroying satellite. in 1979 sky lab fell down and big pieces of debris in australia. in the last few years, this was small, one ton in terms of the size. we saw a larger one fall down. >> this is just a little vw bug dpa

7:43 am
show rolled into that place also, right? >> she is having a great time. i will tell you that. she is going around the world, getting attention and selling a lot of music. and how it ends i am not so sure. >> i don't know. so what about this? the irs in the middle of yet another scandal this morning. listen to this. they sent $4 billion in tax refunds to identity thieves at the same time they were targeting the tea party. is it time to scrap the irs and start over? leslie and here and rocon is the host of ro-and roper.
7:44 am
you know, this strikes me as very interesting. the government is very good at some things and very bad at others. they are skillful at targeting the tea party. but when it comes to sending thieves your money they can not seem to figure that out, leslie. >> listen, i said this morning before i sent my talking points, you guys want me to defend the irs? i think that is the only entity every political side agrees on we hate them. i would like them to go away, but we will not throw the baby out with the bath water. the irs is too large. too big some might say. this isn't just a reflection of
7:45 am
obama, this is a reflection of an agency that is rife with fraud for decades. my refund is being applied to next year and people in china are getting money back. >> of course it is going to tick you off. but what drives me crazy and we are told we cannot find anywhere to cut the spending. but $4 billion in china for bad tax refund seems like a good place to start. >> this is going do sound ironic but the nation needs to invest in computer systems and be more efficient digitally. three credit agencies are able to figure out a fraud three seconds online. and the new commerce secretary
7:46 am
owned trans-union, the credit reporting giant. >> why do these keep happening in a country that masters so much? >> i think the question is why are we surprised this is happening? food stamps, uninsured program and we know there is tens of thousands of fraud. there is all of this money and man power chasing down the tea party groups when they should be up rooting the fraud. but your question about whether it is time to scrap the irs, i have devoted by whole life to this. for 30 years i have said this tax system doesn't work. it is making payments to people
7:47 am
who shouldn't. why not go to a national sales tax or flat tax. you could get rid of half of the irs agents and it would do a lot for the economy. >> you have done lot of work on this. and leslie, why do you think that the american people are so tolerant it would appear of this stuff? why doesn't it come up? why don't people say you know what? get a handle on this? it is a mess. >> it is interesting because left or right when you talk about spending you don't see irs on there. i liken the irs to the police. they pull up behind you and you know you did nothing wrong but your heart skips a beat when you get the letter. if an individual files for bankruptcy everything is wiped
7:48 am
off except for the irs. what the irs needs is to have an audit of its self. i am offended that the irs comes back at people like myself and my husband to get more money when millions of people are not paying. >> leslie, the irs isn't just a tax collection agency. that is the whole point. 1/3rd of the people are getting checks back from the government. it is dispenser of cash. it a welfare program right now. >> thank you, guys. we will do it again. i promise. >> honoring our heroes on this veteran day. people are gathering at the tomb of the unknown soldier and the president will lay the wreath. supporting the wounded warriors
