morning. it's saturday the 21st of june, 2014. i'm anna kooiman. fireworks on capitol hill as congressman paul ryan rips into the irs chief over those lost emails. >> you asked taxpayers to hand us seven years of their personal tax information in case they are ever audited and you can't keep six m nts of employee emails. >> is the irs holding itself to a different standard than it does the american people? >> and the obama administration makes a shocking admission about the thousands of illegal immigrants flooding the border. president's policies are, in fact, to blame. how rumors about amnesty are creating the problem. we will have more on this
breaking story coming up. >> this it cardboard causing chaos on the commuter rail. shutting down service for hours and each alerting the bomb squad. the man behind this is actually a little boy. you know he what? mornings are better with friends, especially on saturday. ♪ ♪ >> hey, everybody, welcome in to "fox & friends." it is the first day of summer. so we're asking for your summertime anthem. so tough to pick '. peter johnson jr., what's your favorite. >> i don't know. summertime, summertime, summertime but that's banana ramah which i love as well. >> you love banana rama. >> we begin this morning with an admission from peter johnson jr.
>> striking. >> we will be sharing ours later. facebook or tweet us your favorite anthem. >> so happy to be with you guys and with you. >> on a day full of news there was drama on capitol hill yesterday. this irs story exploded in exchange between paul ryan, he was, of course, the vice presidential candidate last time and the irs commissioner. it was worth watching. here is an excerpt. >> you are the internal revenue service. can you reach into the lives of hard working taxpayers and with a phone call and email or a letter you can turn their lives upside down. you ask taxpayers to hand us seven years of their personal tax information in case they are ever audited and you can't keep six months worth of employee emails? and now that he we are seeing this investigation
you don't have the emails. hard drives crashed. you learned about this months ago, you just told us, and we had to ask you on monday. this is not being forthcoming. they're is being misleading again. this is a pattern of abuse, a pattern of behavior that is not giving us any confidence that says agency is being impartial. i don't believe you. this is incredible. >> i have a long career, that's the first time anybody has said they do not believe me. >> i do not believe you. >> several republicans really grilling him. basically saying the same thing, you know, it appears that you are lying, sir. six is months of emails kept on the server at a time they say this is because they recycle them every so often because it's an expensive thing to do to keep all of them. but, you know, these emails get sent to somebody, don't
they? >> absolutely. >> they aren't just one sided. how long will it take for us to find these emails, we are going to be asking kurt the cyber guy in the next hour. is this something for companies to do this and if it is how hard is it to get ahold of the emails? >> tucker, nobody understands washington better' than you do. they seem to be suitably outraged. sometimes it's effect and sometimes it's a fake but here they are saying you knew five months ago that you didn't have these emails and then you just told us 8 days ago that you didn't have them. and so, it's not full outrage. seemed to be real outrage here. >> i think it is outrage you are a famous lawyer, would that stand up in court. >> no. >> if i get hauled in for irs violation and i say you know what i don't have any records because honestly it's really hard to save
those records. >> no spoliation, means spoiling the evidence and the inference, the implication of that is that you did something wrong. and there appears to be, base on the facts here chairman camp of that committee requested information about audits of people who were donating to a tax deductible conservative organization. and that's when it began. and then shortly after, they lost the emails. >> yeah, they did. >> it crashed. >> by the way, keep in mind people forget. this the context here is a presidential campaign. this was a very hard fought re-election campaign and right in the middle of it, the administration hamstrung the president's political opponents. that's not a political move in the white house had no involvement in that at all? i don't believe it. >> here is another piece in. this not just lois lerner but half a dozen others. one of the seven who had lost these seven somehow made 35 visits to the white
house. and where is the white house on all of this? and is this head of the irs, the commissioner there, is he just a pawn in their game? listen. >> i think the administration came to you singularly as a person as a white knight, as someone, a sterling reputation, someone who has had experience turning around bad organizations. and i think the administration is trading on your reputation. so i think you have made a bad choice. >> in context is so important and i had forgotten this point. this is in the midst of a high stakes political campaign that this all happens. let's hear what jay christian adams has to say. remember him? he is the doj whistleblower. what does he have to say about the credibility of white house involvement or not on these emails? >> it is totally, completely incredible that the white
house was not involved in this. you have people at the white house being visited by irs people. you have academics who are speech regulators coming to the white house. you have all the groups who hate free speech lobbying the white house to do something. and then guess what happens, the irs starts targeting conservative groups. you don't need to be a rocket scientist to what they were up to. >> that's exactly right. keep in mind, again, this had an effect on the presidential election. this is not of academic concern. this had real life consequences. >> it seems to be the pattern. look at benghazi. >> i couldn't agree more. speaking of foreign policy. there is drama as you know on our southern borders as tens of thousands of illegal immigrants from central america pour into the united states. of the united states response so far only 10% of americans approve of this. most are horrified with the president's inability to secure our southern borders.
the response is to send a quarter of a billion dollars to the governments of three central americans company. south america, guatemala, and honduras. what a shake down operation. our government said to their governments maybe get a handle on your borders. we would like a quarter of a billion dollars please and we are sending it to them. >> instead of saying our policies that we put in place that caused all of this to happen were failed policies. listen to stephan camerota, director of research for the center of immigration studies. he basically says the white house is to blame for all of this. >> bottom line is this is caused by obama administration postal. nothing has fundamentally changed in central america. it was a poor chaotic place before and it is now. the word has gotten out. "the washington post" or a.p. hardly immigration enforcement publications. yeah, the word is out, you get permiso, permission to
come. if you cross the border we are not going to send you back. the word is out. >> the message that they sent was the wrong one and they are not really interested at this point in sending the right message. although the message appears to be let's give away a quarter of a billion dollars and some of that is going to solve this problem. >> these are democratic voters by the way. this is the way they look at it he they are enlarging the pie electorally for the democratic party. i mean study after study has shown first time immigrant voters overwhelmingly vote democrat. whether you have tens of thousands, in this case millions of people. half of them will be allowed to stay in this country. make no mistake. you are increasing the size of the democratic party. trust me, i live there that's the way these people think. >> a way of buying votes. >> over the long term it, you win with this strategy if you are the democrats. >> how much taxpayer money are we going to be spending on the increase of crime here? they are coming from central america. they are not used to seeing
the lifestyles that we have and desperation leads to crime. >> poverty does lead to crime. and if these folks don't have an ability to move into the american system in a legal, appropriate way, then it can, you are right. >> some other stories making headlines we want to tell you about on your saturday morning. fox news alert now. while you were sleeping terrorist militants killed 30 iraqi troops border crossing, the attack 200 miles west of baghdad near the town will callen, this is secretary of state john kerry heads to iraq this weekend. in the north government troops are surrounded and outnourished in a fierce battle for control of the country's biggest oil refinery. fires so big they can be seen from space. terrorist militants seizing control. they are keeping government forces isolated until they run out of food and ammo. the u.s. says there is almost nothing iraq can do to free the troops. now the country's highest religious authority is calling for a new government and iraq is staging a neighborhood military parade

well, good morning, finally the obama administration saying yesterday, it will act to address the growing humanitarian crisis on the border. as agents and aid workers struggle to it care for the thousands of immigrant children pouring in. >> with this influx of brand new worry this morning the possibility of outbreaks from any number of diseases including some we haven't seen in years. so should would he be concerned? dr. nina radcliff joins us now. good morning dr. radcliff how are you? >> great. >> good to he is he you. let's talk about some of the things we haven't been seeing in this country since ellis island and the earliest since the 20th century. what are some the diseases we are looking at at the border. do they pose a threat to all of us in the united states. >> people are calling this the healthcare crisis. this is something we should be very concerned about. until recently, we are not really talking about that that's what the problem is one of the things we worry
about is tuberculosis. the distance we are sitting right now, if i'm coughing i could be contagious to you if i have it it the strain we are seeing with these children is somebody called multidrug recess tant. meaning we will need several antibiotics to treat it. it has serious side effects. 6 to 9 months of medications and they are not 100% effective. i want to point out something shocking. most times it takes $2,000 to treat: $250,000 for treatment for just one person when it's multidrug resistant. >> airborne. >> airborne. our distance, if i'm coughing i can very well contaminate you, yes. >> and these immigrants coming through it are not advanced medical institutions how many could slip through the cracks. >> 80,000 children this year are anticipated. these are detainee camps. they do not have medical care there or nurses or
physicians. if they do not have symptoms. that's a huge problem. what kind of screening can you do if you don't have any symptoms? >> let's talk about some of the other diseases, scabies and lies, what is that? >> scabies is when a might burrows into your skin and causes intense itching and requires a cream. close your terse like this is contagious. it's not dangerous but a nuisance. feed off the blood in your scalp and itchy. >> dingy fever? >> i learned about it in the united states as an fyi. interesting to know about. dengue is a high fever, rash that looks like measles and joint pain. the interesting thing about dengue fever is there is no cure. measles and chicken pox, we know what that is. lep protests lep preas doesn't show up for decades?
i can pass it down to everybody no one would know i have it three to 2 ooyears of contamination. >> the last 15 seconds, as a prescription for involving, this what should this country be doing. >> this is something that's very concerning. we do not know. this is something where they are being sent to their families and sent back and passing to other children and border patrol agents. we do not have an easy solution to this that's why it's called a crisis. >> vigilance is important. >> absolutely. >> coming up on "fox & friends" weekend, a pilot blinded by a a laser pen while los angeles -- landing in los angeles. what happened next? >> do you want to go to space? >> sure. >> might be closer to reality than we think. rick reichmuth takes us out of this world next. he is our rocket man on "fox & friends" on this summer morning. >> you don't want to miss this.

brf paragraph space used to be considered the final frontier. turns out we are on the cusp of something big in exploration. rick is here to explain. >> i had the opportunity to go out and interview richard branson. he is the founder of virgin atlantic. i got a look at what they're doing space flight into the commercial world. take a look. >> and liftoff. >> three years ago nasa ended the space shuttle program and along with it an era of exploration. now private companies are picking up where the government left off in the race for space. >> he we want to try to
enable people who would never even dream, never have a chance of getting to space go into space. >> billionaire and entrepreneur sir richard branson has invented galactic. one day kids like these will be able to go to space. right now that ride of a lifetime has a $250,000 price tag. >> the people are actually putting their hands in their pockets and paying $250,000. you you know, they are enabling us to get the program up and running and they are the pioneers in the same way that in the 1920s aviation troubles began across the atlantic, people were paying similar amounts to go from new york to london. >> virgin galactic spaceship is modeled after, this spaceship one built by engineer burt rotan and housed at the air and space museum. >> the idea of going it to space as a civilian is audacious idea. >> this is the ship here
that made it possible. >> we built -- it will be the start of a whole newer wrath space trouble. >> we went to the space port where virgin galactic is working with the space company to design and build spaceship 2. >> you are making spaceships, spaceships. that's a pretty crazy sounding concept. >> it is. it has changed. there are opportunities ga lore. this is exciting time. >> this is it, what they're building, spaceship 2. the vehicle that will bring branson and nearly 800 ticket holders into space. dave is the chief pilot for virgin galactic. dave has been conducting many of the test flights and will be the pilot taking spaceship 22 on maiden voyage into space. a trip unlike any of the shuttle launches. >> first stage.
we start off with the spaceship mounted in the fuselage. we climb up to 46,000 feet. release the spaceship so it falls away. about three seconds after the motor is lit up and off we go. air launch spaceship that's a fundamentally safer concept. the other part of spaceship technology tail of the vehicle rotates upwards through 60 degrees to give this shuttle effect where no matter how it meets the atmosphere on reentry it will adjust itself to the optimum reentry position. >> as the vice president of operations, mike overseas the program for virgin galactic. >> you work for nasa for years. >> yes. >> in charge of the operations. >> 17 years i did the last 12 shuttle missions. that was great. >> when you found out that the shuttle program was
being tabled. what was that like. >> it was hard, it was heart breaking. it was disappointing? when virgin galactic came along, that wasn't too hard of a jump. >> talk to me about the importance of this for future education. >> i think by us flying regularly and doing it repeatedly and often, we are going to give that experience to more and more people where it's not so uncommon it know hey there is people going to space today. and just that alone is incentive to say if people are going to space today i can be one of those when i grow up. >> that is such an important idea for kids to be able to know that they could go it space. when the initial people went to the moon and there was this big generation of people who thought we are going to go to space and then everything went small and everything went to people's cell phone and went internal and hasn't been expanding anymore. this is a new generation of expansion. >> first in 50 years. air travel is basically the same as it was 50 years ago. same speed, same altitude.
>> kids growing up and saying i want to it be an astronaut not a rocket scientist. you have to make 2 auto thousand dollars to get there. >> you bring up a great point anybody like you and i can go. there are potentially physical limitations. tomorrow we will show you a piece did i that shows you that. how an average person can go and do this. that price tag some people are afraid of and think maybe this is just foley. they expect to see that price tag really come down. >> leonardo decaprio. >> you and i could save up money and maybe for the price of a care could have the trip of a lifetime that is 10 to 15 years. >> really? >> that was a great great piece of work but so inspiring and so aspirational and inspirational. we were all like wow. >> like a gold' retriever with my jaw open. >> you really made it clear i want to too it too. we will be collecting money later in the show. [ laughter ] >> hey, one last thing,

without prosecution. they now have 30 years of free eagle killing. joining us to tell us more is senior policy advisor for the organization. steve homer, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thanks for having me on today. >> very confusing this ruling, this exemption. why are wind energy companies allowed to kill bald eagles? >> well, the administration issued a rule last december that changed the five year eagle take permit to 30 years. would he believe this was part of their effort to build we niewble energy in this country, we feel like they have taken shortcuts and the result is not strong enough protection for eagles. we would like it them to go back and do it right this time. >> not just the eagles, high profile bird. all kinds of different birds and also bats which are in deep trouble in this country thanks to white nose disease. this these turbines kill an awful lot of flying animals is there any way to reduce the number they kill?
>> yes, there is we think the most important thing is where you put the wind farms. the sighting is very critically important. putting them near important bird habitats are not the right places and so far we have seen thousands of turbans built in the wrong places. so we do need a better system to try to steer these developments to areas that will have the minimal impact. >> it seems like a double standard. if i'm pheasant hunting or dove shooting and i shoot a bald eagle by accident, you know, i'm in deep trouble. i have committed a crime. i don't get an exemption, yet, if i have a wind farm and i am systematically slaughtering them, it's not a problem? how does that work? >> there is problems created by industry what they call incidental take. accidental killings as a result of this technology. this is an industry that's booming and growing very fast and we feel like the regulatory framework and the wildlife protections haven't simply caught up to that yet. >> wait a second that rule does not apply to me though, if i accidently shoot a bald
eagle, the fact it was an accident is not a defense, it's still a crime. why is it a defense for the wind companies and not for me? >> well, again, i think that they realize that there is some killing of the eagles that simply can't be avoided by the spinning turbans, and we do feel like the companies have a responsibility to mitigate those impacts perhaps by habitat in another location or changing the power lines so eagles don't get electrocuted. the goggle here is not to stop every single killing but to simply make sure the conservation of the species is maintained, that their numbers keep growing. >> yeah, except in my case the goal is to stop every single killing it sounds like politically connected people don't have to follow the laws which is a little bit disturbing. steve homer, thanks for joining us this morning. i appreciate it? >> thanks for having me on. >> a father locked in a custody battle ordered to appear in court. one problem, on submarine serving in the pacific. the judge cessna is no excuse remarkably. ladies, thank you you need a man to hang a picture

still this morning and it's cool across parts of the northeast. kind of the northern corners of the country are cool. few showers moving through the mid-atlantic today. some could be severe across parts of the carolinas. nothing that i'm too worried about. the bigger problem we have had all of the rain we have seen this week across areas of nebraska, iowa, into minnesota and more rain going on right now. we also are going to have more rain going on overnight again tonight. potential for continuing flooding across a lot of these areas. this is a future radar. you see what happens today. we clear out a little bit and throughout the afternoon. that eastern side of nebraska gets whacked again with rain. maybe another two it to three inches and that will cause additional flooding. unfortunately. this is where that severe weather is today. not looking at threat across the coastal. rough day across the beaches. in across the central plains. threat of severe weather. we can't rule out a tornado. mostly it's going to be some wind and some hail and a lot of lightning with some of these storms that form later

he believes to be the pattern it of deception that the irs has engaged in. watch this exchange with the irs chief with us. >> why at this point, why should anyone believe you? the irs denied for two years targeting of americans based on their political believes, that wasn't the truth. they said its with a few rogue agents in cincinnati. that wasn't the truth. you said you were targeting liberal organizations. that wasn't the truth. then you assured us you would provide us all the emails in may. and that wasn't the truth. and today you are telling us out of thousands of irs computers, the one that lost the emails was the person of interest in an ongoing congressional investigation? >> time has expired. >> and that is not the truth either. this is the most corrupt and deceitful irs in the history. >> to say that this is the most corrupt irs in history ignores a lot of history and
seems to me, again, is a classic overreaction to a serious problem which we are dealing with seriously. >> really? are you handling it that seriously when the server crashed, the hard drive crashes back in february it that contained lois lerner's emails about it and then back in may you said that we were going to get to see all these emails. when that, in fact, wars not going to be the case. and then on monday, congress had to ask questions about did anybody else's hard drives crash? are we going to have this problem anymore? aren't those follow-up questions that maybe a normal leader auto would come out and say this isn't going to smell right. it's going to seem fishy when it comes out and lay it all out therein 00 table rather than waiting on this to come out? it makes everybody seem guilty. >> it's ludicrous. >> people are guilty. that is the bottom line. this is a coverup. in any normal administration, and in any normal media environment, this would be a story that dominated news coverage. but it's basically being i
ignored by most news organizations which is tragic in my view because the irs corrupt? there is nothing scarier than that. >> the fireworks continued, friends, because the question becomes well, you any, have you done these things. you told us back in february that you are going to have these things. you told us in march, april, may. but you waited five months to tell the truth that you didn't have them. when you screw up, don't you usually say you're sorry? watch this. >> what i didn't hear in that was an apology to this committee. >> i don't think an apology is owed. there is not a single email has been lost since the start of this investigation. >> just the relevant emails. justth emails that matter. the last couple months no emails have been lost. justth only enails we need to find magically have disappeared. by the way, no email disappears because there is a recipient to every email, of course. the people who receive these
emails still have them. and the white house presumably could find these emails, at least the ones they received and turn them over, and they haven't? why is that? because they are covering it up. congress is bringing own experts to see he about this back up tape. loss, and hard drive crash. and repeated hard drive crashes that came after congress started to ask very tough questions. >> some say this may go downed in the history books right next to that 18 and a half minute gap in the watergate tapes. >> meanwhile, president obama spoke to the president of mexico the other day about the humanitarian crisis. tens of thousands of miners miners -- minors on their way, on the lure of a promise of the obama administration not to send them home. the president facing a lot of criticism. he calls the president of mexico to talk about it guess what he didn't mention the polite -- plight of andrew tahmooressi being
held in squaller possibly being tortured in a mexican prison. he didn't bring it up. >> sergeant andrew tahmooressi taking a wrong turn, trying to get to san diego. ends up in mexico. he is carrying legal guns in his car and somehow ends up in prison. at one point bound by four point constraints. you know his mother has been on our channel numerous times. greta van susteren been a huge champion of trying to get him freed and trying to get the president to simply address it trying to get the 100,000 signatures on the petition so he would address it. we reached that number a very long time ago. it's been a couple of weeks ago, peter. >> congressman ill anna ross leyton addressed this very issue on greta's show. >> it is inexcusable. it is inexplicable it is obscene, it is horrific. president of the united states spoke to the president of mexico pena
nieeto. didn't ask about this. demand that he be released immediately. >> so why didn't the president do that you? would think that would be -- look, protecting american citizens, looking out for americans is the president's number one job. every president's number one job. how you can overlook this man, this u.s. marine faultsly, unfairly. >> guarantee you if he had asked the guy would have been out of jail in 12 hours. >> the last place you want to be in is in a mexican jail. nobody even pretends. >> horror show. >> this issue with sergeant tahmooressi and the immigration issues is it time for us to boycott mexico? a lot of people are calling for that, too. >> 12 minutes after the hour. a lot more for you coming up on "fox & friends" weekend. a father locked in a custody battle ordered to appear in court. one problem, he is he serving on a navy submarine in the middle of the pacific, up next, the congressman who who has got his back. >> remember this photo inside the situation room during the bin laden raid.

might lose custody of his 6-year-old girl. when he doesn't show up. one congressman has been fighting rulings like this for years. working provision to protect our heroes and their children while they are district attorney employed overseas or anywhere. congressman mike turner joins us. hey, congressman, god morning. >> thank you peter for highlighting this issue. >> thank you so much. isn't this outrageous, first, that this poor fellow, petty officer heinz is going through this with this judge in the state of michigan? she is all wrong on the law, isn't she? >> absolutely. the judge needs to follow the law. in 2008 we amended this law so it would provide for 90-day stay in proceedings. obviously it's haley prejudicial if a service member is not able to be present for a custody battle. this issue is being fought in family law courts across the country where our service members are at a disadvantage and we need to change the law. >> you spearheaded that back in 2008 and all americans thank you for that now you have got a new child custody
protection clause that you proposed. and the senate won't act on it it let's take a look at it. if the court renders a temporary order for custodian responsibility, based solely on deployment, then the court shall require upon the return of the service member, the custody order that was in effect shall be reinstated. why is your proposal so important and essential, congressman? >> our service members should in the be peeblized for serving their country. unfortunately family law courts use the time away of deployment against our service members. when matthew heinz gets back, if the case then goes forward, he is present. he will be at a disadvantage because he served this country and that's not right. fletcher in kentucky fought. this she had her daughter taken away. she said it best. she said under the law when i return you have to give me my job back. i don't understand why you don't have to give me my child back. >> so there is a temporary stay or there should be a temporary stay if the judge is following the law.
you say we need more permanent protections for our service people who are serving in submarines, who are serving in aircraft carriers. who are everybody ising in the persian gulf. correct? >> imagine the stress on our service members. first off, you have a myriad of state laws across the country that don't match. they serve in the national military. there should be a national standard. when they are deployed they know and they have the confidence as to what the law will be and that when they return their custody arrange. s will be honored. unfortunately the uncertainty causes stress across all of our service members. even those not currently in a court case battling for custody they are fearful they could be and be at a disadvantage. >> what advice could you give the judge in weekend as she mulls over what to do in this case in terms of what the law really says about imposing a stay? >> well, she should follow the law. i mean, the judge incorrectly said that the service member should cause the child to be present. the law actually says if the service member can't be present, that they get a stay in the proceedings.
and that goes right to the heart of our ability to represent ourselves in court and to make certain that our case is heard. i spoke to the lawyer. she is cooking a great job in trying to advocate this. the judge needs to read the law and follow it? congressman mike turny. advocating for our service members. it's so important. we will stay in touch on this. let's see what happens. >> thank you so much. >> good to see you. the irs claims lois lerner's emails, they vanished. they have disappeared. are they really gone forever? kurt the cyber guy is here to show us that that can't possibly be true at all. and then, talk about a tough break. he borrowed of his boss' $138,000 maserati. and it wound up here. explain that one. that's trouble. coming back on "fox & friends."

people who would actually have the answers. >> that is such a good point. >> i think people in the it world if you are taking seriously and you are one of the people back up systems for big companies asking themselves a glad i'm not there. b, where is the guy like me that's job is to back up these emails that are now missing from 2009 to 2011? >> there are laws that pertain to the executive branch records these agencies have to keep the records by law. you would think they back up their systems, no? >> the question comes down to this. what you can do with a limited amount of budget. could be in the past no bright light ever shined in this arena. and so there really aren't the kind of systems that are well-funded to back up stuff. other question is all right, there is a claim right now, circulating. reports say they spent up wards of $18 million just to
track down this email for this particular case when, for the 90,000 employees for the irs it would cost about 10 million to be able to record every email ever forever. there is a question about are you spending your money the right way. and for an organization that is charged with collecting money and managing it well we should see some improvements in this. what we are going to get out of this is, a, there are more rocks to unturn. the email may be missing from the irs. where it was sent another copy. they found 24,000 so far. have reread all of them? not yet. >> my impression is that it a hard drive is possible to reconstruct except under
rare stickers. do you quote recycle. >> they cite government policy. when an instrument like this breaks and it's done and you say okay, we can't fix it anymore. we have tried to put it all back together again. we have sent it out as you have heard testimony from yesterday. we have sent it out who hp. we have called all the experts, it's can a put. what he they will do at this point is now recycle it and it goes into the waste for electronic. it's then parted out. people who like the copper parts end up with it. stainless steel goes another way. so it is gone there. you are not going to find it recycle bin. find electronic copies of email somewhere. >> of course. >> i just don't believe that we have heard the end of this. >> i hope not. i hope they get the it guy though. kurt, it's a great point. >> good to see you. >> good to see you. next on the rundown, remember this photo inside the situation room taken during the bin laden raid. hillary clinton said at the time she was covering her mouth for a cough. but she has changed her story. we will tell you what her new line is and a little boy

my name is jenny, and i quit smoking with chantix. before chantix, i tried to quit... probably about five times. it was different than the other times i tried to quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it's a non-nicotine pill. chantix reduced my urge to smoke. that helped me quit smoking. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble
sleeping and unusual dreams. my quit date was my son's birthday. and that was my gift for him and me. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. that's keeping you from the healthcare you deserve. at humana, we believe if healthcare changes, if it becomes simpler... if frustration and paperwork decrease... if grandparents get to live at home instead of in a home... the gap begins to close. so let's simplify things.

spilbore joins us now. is there anything pretty about this guy? >> i don't understand this at all. no. there is nothing pretty or nothing sexy about having a crypt tattoo, having a tear drop tattoo or having a rap sheet as long as my leg. >> what's a tear drop tattoo. >> supposed to signify somebody that you have killed. so, as many tear drop tattoos that you have or as many people that are no longer on this planet. that is not sexy. that is not funny. but this guy is getting comments like women want to marry him, post his bail and have him kidnap them because they think is he so good looking. gusting, guys. this is disgusting. >> we have heard this about peterson too, and about charles manson. >> charles manson is getting married to a 2 a-year-old. >> some of the facebook comments we heard this one came from a woman named jessica. he has that sexy bad boy look and i love it you could see it in his eyes. is he fearless. i would love to visit you one day. >> yuck. >> ewe. >> mash notes and proposals.

a report says consumers are wasting $4 billion a year drying their clothes with inefficient machines. >> is there anything can you do for big energy waisters like these besides replacing them? turns out the answer is yes. >> here yes simple fixes that can save you hundreds. consumer savings expert andrea. >> thank you for having me. >> the dryer seems like a big offender. >> yes. and according to the natural resources defense council they say inefficient electricity dryers use just as much energy as efficient refrigerator. dishwasher and clothes washer combined. save money when you dry your clothes. so you want to always make sure that the lint screen is not clogged when it's clogged. the dryer uses more energy, because it works harder. also, pick up a cheap clothing rack, can you dry your clothes, cut back on the amount of times you dry, when you do dry, try to dry one load right after the other it will lower the warm up time and also the amount of time you dry. >> air drying, that reminsz me of the subject, what
about the summertime heat, airconditioning. what are we going to do about that? i spend too much money on airconditioning. >> exactly the average american household spends $400 to cool their home between june and august. obviously some homes spending even more. so it's really important. you know, we might not be able to afford to do a complete overall of our airconditioning system. do a few small things to save money. make sure you clean your air filters regularly. seal off crawl ducts in attic and garage. >> thermostat. home depot you can buy them for as cheap as $22. go up to $250. what is nice is that you can program the temperature to drop after you -- or to go up after you leave during the day so you are not wasting money on cooling your home when you are not home and then it turns back on just before you arrive so you arrive at a cooler home saving you an average of $180 a year when you practice this. and they even have some out
now you can do remotely toonch the nest is a learning thermostat it actually learns your living patterns. and auto adjust the temperature based on when you are generally home during the day or away for a weekend. >> my living pattern is like a warm shower in the morning. that's going to cost me money though. >> water heaters definitely can cost anywhere from 100 to $400 a year on your electricity bill. manufacturers typically set the water heating temperature at 140 degrees fahrenheit. although most homes only require it to be 120 degrees fahrenheit. that doesn't seem like a big difference but for every 10 degrees that you you lower that therm stated on the water heater. you are going to save an average of 12 to $30 a year. when you go away for a three day weekend. make sure you turn it off to really maximize the savings. >> quicker shower. >> exactly. >> or otake a cold shower during the summer and then you you will save on that. >> just shower in hotels. >> there you go. big money saver. >> make sure you take the
travel bottles with you. >> go out and in terms of lights and cable boxes. >> lights represent the smallest portion of your electricity bill but it's also the easiest fix. swapping out five incon desisn't a light bulbs can save you $70 a year. find these energy efficient night bulbs for night flights and floodlights outside. >> they don't work very well but they do save you money. >> all right. thanks for coming on. coming up, there is immigration crisis at our borders. that's for sure. the white house is a quarter billion dollars sending to central america. governor mike huckabee fired up. he is with that next.

agency that operates out of the bounds of the normal constitutional process. they can investigate you, they can charge you, they can punish you all one stop shopping. there is no check and balance with the irs. no other federal agency can do that the fbi can investigate you. they can even file charges. but then you go to the judicial system. you are not going to be all in that one shop where everything happens from soup to nuts. and that's one reason that the power of the irs is out of control. one of the reasons i have been a strong fair tax proponent. get rid of the irs. it's got to go. this is an outrage to every american citizen. >> and congressman kevin brady at the hearing laid out this pattern of irs behavior. and what he really believes is deception, if not corruption. let's watch that and let's see what you have to say on that. >> i, at this point, why should anyone believe you? the irs denied for two years targeting of americans based on political beliefs, that
wasn't the truth they said it was few rogue agents in cincinnati. that wasn't the truth. you said you were targeting liberal organizations, that wasn't the truth. then you assured us you would provide us all the emails in may, and that end with a the truth. and today, you are telling us out of thousands of irs computers, the one that lost the emails was the person of interest in an ongoing congressional investigation: and that is not the truth either this is the most corrupt and deceitful irs in the history. >> to say that this the most corrupt irs in history ignores a the love history and seems to me, again, is a classic overreaction to a serious problem which we are dealing with seriously. >> i mean, something smells foul with this. you mentioned him being tone deaf with this. is he inept or covering something up? what do it you make of this. >> i can't speak what he was
defending beyond defense. there are a lot of decent employees that get up and go to work every day at the irs. i wish that those decent employees would en masse agree with the american people that what their enterprise is up to is fundamentally wrong. i also hope that there are some people who might have knowledge of the criminal activity that apparently has gone on the irs who will speak up, become whistleblowers and let's blow the lid off. this if 18 and a half minutes of rose mary wood tapes in the nixon white house was enough to bring the president down and several high ranking officials to prison. then we need to know what happened to years worth of emails at the irs. let me just mention this one other thing i thought kevin brady the congressman was beautiful. he laid out the pattern ongoing pattern. there is enough of a pattern here you could so address from it. you need to understand when
you have that much evidence there has not got to be something there go get it and for obama to say there is not a smidgen of corruption in the irs, destroys his credibility as well as the irs's credibility. >> before the investigation even started. >> he doesn't want it to start. >> the white house seems to be attacking, among other things, the english language. renaming everything. political correctness dominates their world's view. the latest illegal immigrant out on lawful migration. >> you know, once again you can call it anything you want to. this isn't alice in wonderland. this is the united states of america. people are so frustrated with president obama, his handling of the immigration issue is now at a whopping 31% who approve. i wonder who is the 31% who approves of the way he is handling this? our borders are being overrun. you have a humanitarian crisis going on with these children whom i feel very sorry for because they are
being used and exploited. this is absolutely just one of those moments in his presidency that make him look completely ill prepared and inseptember -- inept for the job. >> let's look at another issue that i think will become an absolute scandal. it sounds like a scandal on its face. the administration sending $255 million, quarter of a billion dollars to central american countries for some absolutely incredible things. specifically, for example, $40 million to improve security in guatemala. $25 million for youth in el salvador strowrnl organized crime pressure. almost $10 million to reintegrate people who were sent back to this country. so, we are funding youth programs and crime programs in countries like the honduras when the president doesn't even show up to meet with vice president biden to discuss this issue. that's going to solve our immigration problem?
solving gang violence in honduras. what's this about, governor. >> i would say what the president should be doing is the $250 million that we were going to send there, now we are going to use that $250 million to provide healthcare, food, and we're going to then pay for the gasoline to fill up some c-130s, c-as, load them up and bring them to your capital. we expect to you meet them there and we are going to bring them home so you can take care of them. every bit of it will be charged against the $250 million and, by the way. there won't be another dime coming to your country as long as you continue to exploit these children and push them over the border thinking that you are going to toss an anchor into the united states soil and somehow make it possible to send a whole family. >> wait a second. i mean, the presidents of honduras, guatemala and el salvador said they demanded the united states allow many of these immigrants to stay in this country.
what's their grounds for demanding anything and why do we take that? >> here is another option, tucker. load those planes up, if we are going to keep those kids, load them up with every inmate we have got in our prisons and say okay, fair trade. you take the kids, we will take the inmates. basically dump them out like astro did in 1980 o. which by the way cost bill clinton his governorship. a lot of governors watching this and saying mr. president, i don't want, you know, all of these illegals being brought it my state and warehoused here. i mean, this is just -- first of all, i think it is a horrible humanitarian outrage that these children are being exploited. are we going to take care of those kids and feed them? of course we are. we're the united states of america. we are not cruel. we ought not to be stupid and we are being stupid. >> speaking of kids, have you been looking after a cirksd a child in the state of massachusetts and you have been the leader on this story. tell us what's going on with regard to justina right now.
is she returning home? >> she is home. justina pal tier for 16 months was kidnapped by the people's republic of massachusetts. i know those are strong words. what else you can say when a outcome lady goes into a hospital emergency room and is taken from her parents because, after 30 minutes, a doctor decides that the two years worth of medical treatment she has had from tufts. which is a pretty impressive institution is somehow wrong and he decides that the parents have created a psycho somatic illness in the girl. they take the girl, kidnap her. won't let the parents see her. she doesn't get school. she doesn't get religious services for almost two years. she doesn't get to see her friends. finally, they have relented. she is back home with her family and a week from tonight will be the first television appearance that justina palatier will make on our show. she will let the world hear the story firsthand. >> hats off to you.
every weekend have you been sitting on our couch telling us that you are following that story. >> you know why? it's because i'm a father. >> this not about -- first off i was a governorrenned a i knew what was going on with this girl was outrageous and no state should have ever let it happen. the second thing, can you tell me any mother or father in this country that would let their daughter be kidnapped this way and not be furious. some say the family was angry. are you kidding? i would be going billie jack on your face if you came after one of my children. >> we will watch it tonight. >> thank heaven that you were following. this malg if you weren't. scary. see the mother of the young -- one of the young american teenagers who was kidnapped by hamas. >> see you next week. >> see you then. >> thanks. >> the president inviting the women of morning tv to the white house. guess who didn't get invited? a badge of honor. we will tell you coming up. en ps above the competition, but we're not in the business of naming names. the fact is, it comes standard with an engine

>> i don't think an apology is ood. not a single email has been lost since the start of this investigation. every email has been preserved that we have. >> that's irs boss john koskinen braisingly unapologetic yesterday on capitol hill. the irs continues to deny a coverup but the people are still trying to figure out what exactly happened to lois lerner's emails? will we ever really know the truth behind this scandal? joining us now is kevin, a founder of lynch pins of liberty. he says his group was targeted by the irs. kevin, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you, tucker, thanks for having me back you saw the irs commissioner not apologizing. looking squarely at his commissioners, deny iting
responsibility. unembarrassed. their story is the emails just vanished. is that plausible. >> nobody believes the irrelevancy lost emails. especially central into the investigation into the unlawful targeting of american citizens. when the united states government asks the american people to believe that the dog has eaten its homework, it sets a disturbing trend and a troubling trend more away from the rule of law and toward totalitarianism. >> i think it's a very good point and it kind of cut rate totality tarrenism. unprofessional at that we just interviewed someone who made i thought a very good point which is where is the head of it at the irs. where are the tech people? they haven't made an appearance. nobody has explained in precise technical terms what could have happened to these emails. >> well, exactly, tucker. the response that you got from mr. does koskinen was arrogance. you will continue to see this type of behavior. up to this point say for fox
news. no other television media will hold this administration accountable. until they do, we will see this behavior over and over again because it is most the nature of the habit of tire rants. >> so have you been on the receiving end of all of this. you were targeted, you say, by the irs. how would you have faired if you had adopted this posture, this kind of arrogant back off, i don't need to answer your questions, no, i don't have the records. they are gone. if you had acted that way to the irs, what would have been their response do you think? >> as you know, tucker, you set that up perfectly. every taxpayer knows if you are off on one penny on your estimated taxes, for example, or if you forget one little jot and t on your tax returns they will let you know. let you know with such aggressive form to let you know that you are a criminal and done something wrong. i think something more important here, too, tucker. we would not be in this position today if the speaker of the house, john boehner had adopted the moral courage to set up a
select committee at the time this irs scandal first broke a year ago so his continual refusal to do so has given both time and cover for the obama administration to continue to destroy and hide evidence which i think is what is happening. because he has done that tucker, he has add doe be a voyeur -- >> they don't follow the same rules they require us to follow thanks for coming on this morning. i appreciate it. >> thanks, tucker. i appreciate it. >> he tried to rob a convenience store. he found out othe hard way. special forces veteran. epic takedown. you have got to see this. if you are going to suffer from alzheimer's, would you want to know now? new test might give you an answer in just minutes. is it actually accurate? should you take it? dr. segal joins us next.

. well, 300 american advisors are headed to iraq this morning. they are hoping to clamp down on the militant group isis which is spreading its terror across that country and showing discord. just how dangerous is this group and is u.s. national security at risk? let's ask fox news military analyst general jack keane. good morning, general. >> good morning. >> what track are we on by sending 300 so-called advisors to iraq at this point? we read today in the
newspapers and i hear on fox news that we did have a plan to work with iraq but it seemed to fall are a parlt is this too little too late? >> i think it's a step in the right direction. it's not sufficient though to truly address the crisis that we're facing in iraq in terms of security crisis. and i don't think it's sufficient to really address the political investigation where we have to reach out it the sunnis and attempt to rec done sil some of them and put together a coalition government. 300 advisors, i don't think, will convince the parties at play here making a commitment and is serious. >> it's hard to imagine president obama making the commitment necessary to hold iraq together. let's say the current trend continue its and the country splits into three. into sunni, kurd, and shiite. what does that mean for the snus. >> well, i think it's something that we could not permit to stand to be quite frank about it. >> well, what we have to
understand is yes, isis is a terrorist organization. and they used to exclusively, tuck ir, do tafersz attacks. they have seized cities northbound they have a huge swath of land in iraq and also syria on otheir way to establishing a state. a radical islamic state. and that was the dream of the 9/11 al qaeda. they were never able to achieve that because they overreached an attack in the united states. but to be quite frank about it. this will become a breeding ground for a terrorist. this organization is now the face of al qaeda. it is now the most dominant radical islamic force that has ever been established in the region as it grows in size and scale it will threaten not only the region but obviously the neighboring countries to
iraq but also threaten the united states and our european allies. so it is a very serious threat. actually, president obama identified it as a serious threat national security of the united states in his speech. he just didn't talk about what the implications are, why we are so concerned and what are we going to do about it? >> general, the isis leader baghdadi allegedly said to the commander of the camp, when he was released, back in 2009 or so, see you in new york. that seemed to be a pretty explicit threat. will we see these folks in new york and what can we do to make sure we don't see them in new york or washington or los angeles in the near future? >> well, there is some national security experts that think the best thing to do is just leave this situation alone and protect the united states as best we can. i think that's a pretty flawed strategy. i think what has kept the terrorist at bay since 9/11
is the fact that we have been on offense against them. but we have lost sight of the bubble. because terrorist organizations have been growing throughout the middle east. and we haven't been doing much about it this thing began to grow two and a half years ago in syria. and we did not put anything in there to help free syrian army. the only people that fought terrorists before now and iraq is a free syrian army in syria. these terrorists came from iraq. and they found that vacuum in syria and they have exploited it. so what we have to do is stay on offense. we can manipulate here and there now with the iraqis to achieve a political end. but we are -- we will wind up dealing with this terrorist organization. we will eventually have to attack it. we will eventually have to kill it. there is no doubt about it and we will eventually have to wean the support it has right now from the sunni arabs. >> general jack keane thank you for joining us. >> always good talking with you guys.

the most dramatic landscapes in the world. i recommend mesa arch, green river, before heading on to our next stop grand canyon, of course. the south rim is more accessible by many of the inner states and more popular. for summer travelers, book your reservations at camp sites early so you don't miss a chance to get to the grand canyon. one of the most incredible things are the sunset and sunrise. just incredible at the grand canyon. >> that's got to be on your bucket list. then route 66, flagstaff. >> you can't have a road trip without hitting route 66. check out the historic downtown district, the railroad district. there are three great eats in flagstaff, too, salsa brava is one fantastic mexican joint and
tinder kitchen for american comfort food. >> santa fe, new mexico. >> 7,000 feet in elevation. pack lots of water for your road trip crew. the pueblo style architecture is beautiful. lots of great museums, as well. the georgia o'keefe museum and new mexico museum of history is also in santa fe. i recommend getting out exploring and taking in the natural beauty there. >> what is the best way if you're with your family and trying to be on a budget. what is the best thing to do? >> that's the beauty of a road trip. it's one of the most affordable ways to get around. average camp sites are between $5 or $20 a night. a little more if you want the full hook-up. pack healthy snacks. don't eat out a lot traveling and you can make it a reality this summer. >> thanks for bringing along your friend the gnome. back to you inside.

drones and dogs. we are talking to the california search office. do we have a spokesman on the phone? yes, we do. good morning, thanks for joining us. >> good morning. >> i wonder if you could tell us the latest in the search. we are hearing privately-owned drones delayed helicopter search. is that true, has that been fixed? what can you tell us? >> yes. yesterday we had a problem with a civilian up there operating a small unmanned aircraft and that hindered our search and we had to ground our helicopters while we searched for those people to get them out of there. we have a temporary flight restriction on this operation that allows only our helicopters and our unmanned aircraft to be operated in that area we have some safety concerns. we want to discourage people from coming up there, while their intentions are good and they are trying to help, we
prefer they stay away we have professionally trained rescuers up there searching. >> and mike herdman, a 34-year-old firefighter was with a friend of his and says he last saw mike running down the hill after his dog duke had gone into the creek. tell us what happened. you did find duke but only momentarily. where was that and what information has that led you to believe? >> they spotted duke on wednesday and thursday in the afternoon and tried to corral him, but weren't able to. duke was able to run away. so that indicates to us that he is at least healthy enough to run around up there in the mountains. yesterday animal services came from los angeles city. they are like an animal s.w.a.t. team. they go in there in these technical type situations and actually worked on trying to
coax the dog out and left a humane trap overnight trying to capture duke. we'll find out the results of that in a short while and hopefully have good news on that. we haven't seen any signs of mike. that is problematic. >> along with ventura county sheriffs, there are about half dozen agencies participating in the search, including homeland security rapid response team. how big is this area you are searching? and number two, what about the great shape this firefighter is in? does that auger well for him? he's been missing for about a week or so. >> yes. the area where these men disappeared, our search area alone is roughly 58 square miles. it's a big back country area. there is very difficult terrain back there. from our command post, it's literally two days on foot just to get to where he disappeared, where he was last seen. the issue with the firefighter, he was in excellent physical
condition. my understanding is he participated in triathlons, physically fit. he's been in the back country many times. he's been in this particular area at least four times previously that we know of. he's familiar with it. he's in shape. the weather has been favorable for survivorable conditions. there is water back there in the creek. still potential for survival. our concern is that we haven't seen him. we are operating on the assumption he may be down and incapable of -- he may be injured and inkaupable of getting to our rescuers or signals to us in some way. >> thank you, sergeant. we'll stay in close touch as this story continues. hope and prayers for his safe rescue. thanks for what you're doing. eric buschow, county sheriff's office. terrorist militants killed at least 30 iraqi troops in two

investigati investigation, you don't have the e-mails. hard drives crashed. you learned about this months ago. you just told us, and we had to ask you on monday. this is not being forth coming. this is being misleading again. this is a pattern of abuse, a pattern of behavior that is not giving us any confidence that this agency is being impartial. i don't believe you. this is incredible. >> i have a long career. that's the first time anybody said they do not believe me. >> i don't believe you. >> he hasn't heard governor mike huckabee who was on the show earlier who summarized the outrage over this situation by which thousands of e-mails, critical to this criminal investigation and the congressional investigation, have been lost and destroyed. governor huckabee earlier here on "fox and friends."
>> this is a criminal enterprise. let's be honest about it. what makes this so very, i think, disheartening to the american people, the irs is the only federal agency that operates out of the bounds of the normal constitutional process. they can investigate you, they can charge you, they can punish you, all one stop shopping. there's no check and balance with the irs. no other federal agency can do that. get rid of the irs. it's got to go. this is an outrage to every american citizen. >> the timing on all of this is so curious. we heard in may congress was reassured by the irs t able to the e-mails. poof, they're gone. the way they are explaining this away, is every six months they have to recycle what's on the server because of cost purposes. it also is very curious that it's not just lois lerner's e-mails that are gone. this hard drive crash happened to half a dozen others. one of those seven people on
that list happened to make 35 visits to the white house. a lot of fingers pointing at the white house. >> knew they were gone in february but didn't say until eight days ago. >> try when the irs asks you for your records during an audit. >> they disappeared somehow. >> meanwhile, the president spoke yesterday to the mexican president. obama called the mexican president about the humanitarian crisis, immigration crisis on our border, on our southern border. tens of thousands of immigrants from central america streaming from mexico to the united states. obama under a lot of pressure to respond to this. during their conversation, guess what the president never mentioned, not one time? the u.s. marine being held unfairly in a mexican jail in squalor tied down to his bed and the president never mentioned it with the president of mexico.
>> this is how greta vresponded. >> the united states spoke to the president of mexico. demand he be freed immediately. we are beyond the status quo of this marine. we are in demanding that he be released immediately. >> well, it's a new american public policy. i forgot, and i was surprised. forgot and surprised. the two new watch words of american government. >> how hard is this? you're on the phone with the president -- >> i forgot. >> you're the president of the united states. your only job is to watch over the citizens of your country. >> a former marine. truly. and there are no former marines. marines forever. didn't bring it up. he could have fixed it in a second. >> let's think about the way he's being treated there, bound to his bed, four point

quarter past the hour. you heard about the 300 american military advisors heading into iraq right now. what you may not know, none of them will be eligible for combat pay. >> this comes as the department of defense announces imminent danger pay cuts to 22 areas around the world. >> how does this move affect military members and their families? >> joining us is 2014 affirmed forces army spouse of the year rita hicks. her husband just returned from a ten-month tour from afghanistan. how are you? >> good morning, i'm great. thanks for having me. >> let's talk about the significance and hurt imposed by losing $7.50 a day in imminent hazard pay, including the people that are in the persian gulf now aboard ships and getting ready to fly jets towards iraq.
tell us the effect. >> i think you have two different kinds of effect. one is direct, obviously you are talking about $250 a month to families for whom that $250 a month really makes a huge difference. especially when talking about junior enlisted families who don't make a lot of money, talking about a car payment or groceries. more importantly, this is a huge morale issue. what we are telling our service members is that we are sending them to foreign countries away from their families, away from the safety of being within their own country's jurisdiction, and we are telling them the value of that sacrifice is less today than it was yesterday. >> that sacrifice you are talking about is potentially their life, right? your life is not worth today what it was yesterday. what are the long-term effects of this morale crisis there? >> well, i think there are a couple. one is we are an all-volunteer
force. if these benefits continue to be chipped away, what that looks like is we are a country that doesn't value the sacrifice of people who raise their hands and are willing to go. so i think that's going to result in a retention issue over the long term. the bigger issue is the fact this is one in a series of cuts we have seen over the course of the last year just chipping away at military families' benefits. again, they are all volunteers. they don't make a ton of money, particularly our junior enlisteds. they have families. they have to think about, is this right for my family long term? i love my country, but can i continue to sacrifice when this is the way i'm treated? especially because when you are talking about imminent danger pay in particular, $250 a month per soldier in terms of the defense budget is nothing. in terms of those families is significant. >> in terms of the defense budget, we know the u.s. pushed the folks there.
they will get hazard pay. the defense department is talking about $108 million. as a spouse, as someone part of the great american military family, do you believe that we are balancing our american budget on the backs of the people who we should be rewarding, who we should be compensating in a way that is commensurate with the risks they take? >> yes, i do. i think the course of discussion over the last year made it very clear that the place where defense is interested in cutting is its people. we are basically telling the people in the military to be willing to sacrifice when other portions of the budget aren't being touched or aren't being affected in the same way that individual people necessary to national security are being treated. absolutely that's true. that's why you see phenomenons where you have so many military families and veterans organizations coming to say
enough is enough. your greatest single asset is these people you are asking to sacrifice. >> thank you for your courage speaking out on this issue. we'll hear from you on other issues going forward. thank you and your family for your great service. >> thank you very much. the 2014 military spouse of the year she is. 20 minutes after the hour. texas is in a state of emergency trying to deal with the influx of illegals at our southern border. the attorney general of texas says we can't wait another minute for the federal government to act. greg abbott next with what he plans to do about it. smokers need not apply. the hospitals that won't hire you until you put out your butt. is this fair? and other car insurance companies?

over 47,000 children have been caught crossing into this country illegally since october last year. texas governor rick perry is taking matters into his own hands using texas funding to support border operations. joining us now is the man supporting governor perry's move, greg abbott. thanks for joining us this morning. >> my pleasure. great to be with you. >> thank you. what is texas doing that the federal government should be doing? >> well, we are doing the thing the federal government is supposed to do, and that is stepping in to secure our border. what's happening is the border patrol agents on the border here in the state of texas are overwhelmed by hundreds of people coming in every single day. these border patrol agents are
having to change diapers, herd children into these shelters. we are having cartel activity across the border importing horrendous crimes to the state of texas, so the state of texas is sending our department of public safety down to the border, conducting what we call a surge operation for the remainder of this calendar year to make sure that we can stop the crime at the border and not let it import into the state of texas. >> that is scary, not to mention the cost to your schools and hospitals and law enforcement. has the white house contacted you on this? >> first i reached out to the white house and tried to contact jay johnson, director or secretary of homeland security, trying to get them to pay for this surge and to get them to better secure our border. i know governor perry has been in contact directly inviting president obama to meet with him on the border next week. we are getting nothing but
silence from washington, d.c., and yet, yesterday the vice president was in central america working with the central american countries from which these children and families are coming, guatemala, el salvador, hon d honduras, offering them money, but not giving us money to secure our border. >> we are sending billions of dollars to central america to buy their cooperation but not sending the money to texas. what is the motivation here? the administration almost seems like it's in favor of illegal immigration. do you think they are, and if so, why? >> tucker, this is completely a human-made disaster. if you recall, the president two years ago stood in the rose garden and basically said there would be deferred action for children who were here in the you'd of america, deferring their deportation.
it has been since that two-year period, there's been this tremendous influx from central america. the word on the street, and we had people who cross the border and walk up to the border patrol agents and turn themselves. in the border patrol agents are asking why they are doing this? they said because they heard in honduras, in el salvador, in guatemala that they could come to america and their children would be able to stay here. so this has been an operation that occurred because the president basically swung open the doors and created a big invitation for these people to come here. so this is all caused by the presidential action. >> maybe the white house would like to see the population of texas change? if texas goes blue, becomes a democratic state republicans cannot do you think that might be a consideration here? >> it's beyond my comprehension about why the president would do this.
what i do know is that the president has failed his fundamental responsibility to ensure our sovereignty, to secure our borders, and that is precisely why texas is stepping up and doing what the president has failed to do. we are taking action to secure our border. >> texas attorney general greg abbott. we are grateful you joined us this morning. thanks a lot, mr. abbott. >> thank you, tucker. coming up, a father locked in a custody battle ordered to appear in court. one problem, he is serving in the navy beneath the pacific. he is on a submarine. the congressman fighting back on his bhachlt behalf. they want to fill the stands so they bury themselves. coach and owner of an amateur hockey team join us live. no combat troops to iraq, just security advisors. with gasoline, food and electricity prices soaring, is the president failing the american people? we debate at 11:30. don't touch that dial. for all the distinctions

winter eitem in popularity, and so as everybody is getting the steaks, there are two briskets every time there is a steak. so the briskets stack up and you get them at a great price for the barbeque. >> and what size brisket would that cost on the market? >> $4 to $5 a pound. >> well, that is not bad. >> and is that the same thing as london broil? >> well, that brisket would be different and i have the top round london broil which is one of the best roast beefs, because when you slice it on the slicer, it is tender. it is a dense piece with a lot of flavor. you need marinade and this is the cheapest cut all summer long. >> cheaper than the brisket? >> $2/pound. and one of the most expensive cuts in summer, what should you stay away from? >> the new york rib steaks and the rib steaks and the spare ribs. i have four country style rib ends, and that is the meatier
than the normal ribs. >> those are enormous and i don't see those in restaurants. >> well, you need to marinade them for the tenderness and marinade 24 to 48 hours. people think a couple of hours, but the dense pieces need a longer time and throw it in a zip lock bag and throw it in the refrigerator and then have it the next day. phenomenal. >> and what about these pattys? >> these are turkey burgers. >> yes. >> and they are very good and so are chick en and the thing is that you to freeze the turkey burgers. >> and you to mix it with half dark and white meat. >> yes, and i dice in some onions and peter luger steak sauce and it will stay on the grill and look like a burger and evoke the taste of a burger.
>> do we love this food? >> yes. >> we will share, we promise. >> we will have a lot more "fox and friends" coming up. >> stay tuned. >> don't go anywhere. good job! still runnng in the morning? yeah. getting your vegebles every day? when i can.
