5:00 pm
follow me on twitter brand new handle @greta. see you tomorrow night right here at 7:00 p.m. eastern. good night from washington. profit o'reilly factor is on. tonight: >> i as an american feel it's very wrong to shoot unarmed teenagers six times once in the head. >> you feel like you have all the facts -- >> . no that's what i feel as an american. >> high profile liberal people continue to convict police officer darren wilson in the shooting death of michael brown. >> the grand jury's decision could come at any time. ahead, we'll tell you what's new in ferguson. tomorrow night i'm going to be announcing here from the white house some steps that i can take to start fixing our broken immigration system. >> and we will be here right after the president's announcement to analyze. but tonight: what the folks think about the immigration controversy. also dennis miller on global
5:01 pm
warming possibly causing war. and dick cabot. >> boom ba. >> on the funniest americans ever. >> describe the sound made when a sheep explodes. [ laughter ] >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly, thanks for watching us tonight. we have too many memos for you this evening. one on the racial situation in ferguson. the other on president obama's immigration order. the president set to speak to the president tomorrow on thursday 8:00 p.m. widely expected he will legalize about 5 million undocumented people many of whom have children who are american citizens. there will also be other immigration orders in his executive action. as everybody knows, this is extremely controversial. and a new nbc "wall street
5:02 pm
journal" poll out today breaks it down this way. do you approve or disapprove of the president taking executive action on immigration? 48% disapprove. 38% approve. 14% no opinion or unsure. putting emotion aside, the issue is not really about the a million undocumented human beings. it's about president obama challenging the constitution. talking points has said it before, the president should waited and give the new congress a chance to pass a fair immigration law. if congress doesn't do that, mr. obama's legal position would then be stronger, allowing him to take unilateral action. but the way things stand now, surely the president will lose in the courts. i believe mr. obama knows that and knows how divisive his actions will be. he doesn't seem to care. history will not look kindly on a sitting president causing a constitutional ruckus.
5:03 pm
trust me on that. that's the first memo. now for the top story tonight. in the wake of president's pending action, the question becomes a moral one, what's wrong with allowing foreign born parents of american children to work and stay in america? what's wrong with that joining us from boynton beach, greg abbot dealt with illegal immigration in the lone star state. we will get to the moral thing in a minute. you, i understand, are going to challenge president obama in the courts almost immediately after he signs executive order; is that correct? >> bill, we are prepared to assert a legal action against the president because we believe what the president is doing is completely unconstitutional. he has a legal obligation to enforce the laws, plus, immigration is a signed by the constitution to the united states congress to determine not the president. the president has no legal authority to grant legal
5:04 pm
status to people who are here in the united states illegally. >> so what are you guys in austin, texas, going to do? exactly what are you going to do and when are you going to do it? >> we will be doing it as soon as possible. after the president makes his announcement. of course, we want to see exactly what is in his announcement. but we are looking at two different types of legal actions. one is violation of article 2 section '3 of the violation take care clause requires the president to take care to execute the laws and clearly prevents this type of action the president is trying to undertake. the second is article 1, section 86 the constitution that gives to the the united states congress, not the president, the authority to enact immigration policy. >> so you are going to file on behalf of the state of texas in federal court? is that what you are going to do? >> that's correct. bill, because we have seen in texas the consequences and we have dealt with them from a cost perspective of
5:05 pm
the president's immigration policy. it was in the aftermath of the last dock can a action by the president that we had more than a thousand people coming across the texas border a day. >> the kids. do you expect other states to join you in this lawsuit? >> we will be reaching out to other states. but, bill, because texas was at the epicenter last time. because texas will be one of the leading states suffering the consequences of this action, we believe we have sufficient standing alone but, just like in let's say the obamacare laws where more than half of the states in the country joined. in we will open this up to other states to join with us. >> all right. now, let's put all the legalisms aside and get to the moral question. in texas, you have hundreds of thousands of children, border babies taken here illegally by their parents born here in the u.s. therefore they are u.s. citizens. their parents are. no their parents are illegal
5:06 pm
aliens. president obama says,look, for humane reasons, we're going to let them stay and work here. we're not going to give them citizenship. what's wrong with that? >> well, bill, there are two things wrong with that one is it really is just a hoax on the people he is offering that to because he doesn't have the legal authority to grant them any rights whatsoever to grant them rights. for people involved nothing more than a hoax. bigger inhumanity here. it was after the president did this last time, we saw all those children come to the border, understand this: many of those children never made it here because they were killed along the way. other children were tortured. others were raped. it is -- the united states and a the president would be an accomplice to the inhumane way that people would be treated who come here or try to come here because of the order. >> you say this will be a
5:07 pm
another magnet. more people will come. you are almost dodging my question, governor, that's not like you. the people here, already, all right, the parents foreign born parents of american citizen children, what's wrong with letting them stay, say you seal the border. say you knock it down so they couldn't come into texas. it's a pipe dream but let's be theoretical for a moment. morally, what's wrong with giving them a break and letting them work, not citizens, but letting them stay. it's a two year deal right now and they have to do a number of things. what's wrong with that? >> because, bill, the way the president is going about doing it, doesn't really achieve the goal of what you just are a kick could you lated. the president doesn't have the authority to give these parents any rights whatsoever. in fact, in his announcement, he will not be giving them any rights. in he were to do so, in a way that would be a valid legal process, then it would be subject to challenge and would be overturned in court. >> all right. so you don't want to really
5:08 pm
get into the morality of this thing, do you? >> well, listen, the morality, bill, look at the bigger question. and that is, any country that lived by dictator fiat methodology has wound up in chaos. look at the greater. >> i agree with that 100%. i think the president has said as i said in the tea points is causing constitutional ruckus reflect history poorly on him. i do feel sorry for some of these illegal alien people here and their children. i do. and as a human being i feel sorry for them. so it's very difficult. i think the president is going about it in the wrong way. quite clear. i think congress would absolutely pass something that's fair. i have faith they would. but he is not giving them a chance. governor, let us know what happens. we really appreciate your time tonight. >> thank you. >> next on the rundown, by do some liberal americans continue to convict police officer darren wilson in the shooting death of michael brown? why do they do that?
5:09 pm
we'll have the t points. later, miller on charles manson getting married in prison. the factor is coming right back. theraflu severe cold doesn't treat chest congestion. really? new alka-seltzer plus day powder rushes relief to your worst cold symptoms plus chest congestion. oh, what a relief it is. here we go! wow!

5:12 pm
impact segment tonight. my second talking points memo. authorities are in missouri are bracing for racial protests when the grand jury hands up its decision about whether or not to indict police officer darren wilson in the shooting death 18-year-old michael brown. that decision could come at any time. in the media and political world, some liberal people continue to officer wilson. last night bernie goldberg and i discussed civil rights icon congressman john lewis. is he comparing the case in ferguson, missouri, to selma, alabama. while lamenting police shooting young black men all over the country. the congressman is calling for justice. and i believe that's why federal, state, and local authorities are involved. and i believe that's why
5:13 pm
their findings have been put before a grand jury. so congressman let the system function. if the fix is in, and can you prove it, i will be right there with you. in the media, the michael brown investigation and subsequent leaks were up for discussion on "the view." >> what they're doing is baiting the people to react. that's what i'm. >> or they are saying a gross injustice is about to be ignored and people are get businessed. >> you can be pissed but not be violent. >> known is saying. >> what's the injustice, you are saying if he isn't indicted that's a gross injustice you? weren't in the grand jury >> perhaps i was not. i as an american, feel it's very wrong to shoot unarmed teenagers six times once in the head. >> again, no one knows exactly what happened so let's see what the grand jury says. joining us now from st. louis, the attorney for the family of michael brown benjamin crump. first of all, counselor, do you have any hint of when
5:14 pm
the grand jury's decision will be made? >> bill, we only know that they have got to the end of their work and we should be hearing something pretty soon and they are going to inform the family out of respect before they inform the public. >> okay. now, the grand jury sits tomorrow. all right, correct? they meet tomorrow. >> that's what we understand. >> you would assume that would happen tomorrow? >> again, they are going to give us notice. we don't know for certain. >> okay. i'm trying to figure out why people like rosie o'donnell. she is not alone, are so adamant about convicting this police officer. i'm not sure why they do it. do you know why, counselor? >> well, mr. o'reilly, i think they want to make sure
5:15 pm
there is a constitutional trial by jury that there would be due process for michael brown jr. as well as the police officer. the troubling thing is if there are no charges brought, then michael brown's family doesn't even get to have their day in court where it would be transparent and everybody will get to see the evidence and the witnesses. >> that's our system though. the grand jury would have to present, and so would the federal, state, and local authorities, all of them, it would have to present to the public to you, to the family, why there was no indictment, if indeed that happens. you would see how they came to that conclusion. the grand jury members then could give interviews, they could talk about it, whatever. our system is that the grand jury decides whether an indictment is handed down it doesn't go straight to trial. so are you saying you don't believe in the system, counselor? >> i'm saying the way this
5:16 pm
process was handled, we have objected from the beginning, mr. o'reilly, that they didn't need to have this matter to the grand jury. there was enough evidence there to have probable cause to charge the police officer. there was seven eyewitnesses, there was forensic evidence. remember, probable cause, mr. o'reilly, is just a tipping scale. it's not beyond a reasonable doubt. the police officer will still get his day in court. he will will have all his full constitutional rights of innocent until proven guilty. however, when you think about how this process is being done, it's different from any other grand jury process. the prosecutor has said we're not going to recommend any charges. we're just going to put all the evidence out there and let everybody -- all the jurors figure it out for themselves because we just want to be fair. well, the problem with that as it relates to equal justice so does that mean 28 years of him being the prosecutor when he presented things to grand juries he was being unfair to everybody else?
5:17 pm
don't change the rules wherein it's our children lying on the ground. we just want equal justice. if there is probable cause to charge, you charge. if there is not, you don't. but don't change the system. >> he didn't want to make that decision himself because it's such a volatile situation. look, i understand what you're saying. but i believe that the system the way the state of missouri has handled it. and this goes right up to the federal government as well. holder, eric holder, goes right in there will present the evidence one way or another so that fair-minded people will say, okay, but i could be wrong and counselor, if you think it's -- the fix is in or something like that, again, as i said, i will be there if i see the evidence. if not, then i will be -- we appreciate you coming on. when you get here tomorrow if it comes down we want to talk to you, because we respect your opinion and we want the family to have justice. go ahead, last word. >> thank you so much. >> okay. directly ahead, do black

we're for net neutrality protection. now, here's some news you may find even more surprising. we're comcast. the only isp legally bound by full net neutrality rules. continuing with the impact segment. tense racial times in missouri. country is divide on whether the issue of past crimes against african-americans should be considered in evaluating present situations. >> the rush to judgment by some in the african-american is, in fact, understandable because there is-driving while black in our country. there are racial disparities in terms of how people are treated. >> senator is saying many black americans have been treated badly by the authorities and do not have confidence in the system. joining us now from tampa, florida jessicaer lick and
5:22 pm
here in new york monica crowley. does senator mccass ski have a point. >> this is what the left often does. they appropriate a specific event say the michael brown shooting in order to try to serve some bigger racial or social justice agenda. what the american justice system is built on and justice in america is supposed to be blind to race and to everything else, bill. what it is built on is taking the specific case with a specific set of facts and then applying the law to that. and what the left often does is take these kind of things in order to serve a broader agenda. >> okay. but we are talking about the folks now. we are talking about the perception of the justice system. all right. not the actual justice system. the perception of it i think it's fair to say that most african-americans say, you know, this is stacked against us. they are after us. they pull us over. driving while black means you get pulled over much more than whites. you get stopped and frisked more. and whatever. so we, blacks, are never going to get a fair shake.
5:23 pm
that's what is driving this whole ferguson thing. do they have a legitimate point? >> well, i think there are a couple things here. there is some legitimacy to that the bigger question is why are they being pulled over more? why are they being scrutinized more. blacks and minorities commit the disproportionate crimes in this country we can talk about that. >> cause and effect situation. >> breakdown of family, drugs, dependency for many decades. >> you said justice is supposed to be blind even if it's disproportionate crimes in a precinct, the justice system has to be fair in the way. >> that doesn't mean equally scrutinize whites if they are not committing crimes in the same number that minorities are. >> let's jump in here. do you believe senator mccaskill, she is justifying the suspicion of the system in ferguson, missouri, saying, you know what? even if the verdict comes down in a fair way,
5:24 pm
african-americans are not going to believe it. >> well, i don't think she is justifying. i think she is empathizing with a problem that's recognized across the country. and certainly it is in missouri, particularly in ferguson, missouri, actually, the state legislature several years ago passed a law that has been looking into exactly what the numbers of people being pulled over are and by race. and there is a disproportionate number of them, specifically in ferguson, even when you compare the white to black citizen ratio in the town. i don't think this is a left and a right issue. we are looking at, you know, there are conservative blacks and liberal blacks in this country. and, you know, especially for me in my generation, i'm so sort of, you know, i'm angry just that we are still having this conversation because, really? i think as monica pointed out, this is particularly about dessegregation that still exists. the discrimination that still exists. that's what really -- we need a proactive plan. >> there is never going to be a perfect society. what senator mccaskill did
5:25 pm
in that sound bite was give legitimacy to people who say and i think counselor crump is in that area. we are not getting a fair shot. we will never get a fair shot. we won't get a fair shot because we're black and that's the way america is. we are going to go out and protest that we can't get a fair shot in this country. that's what the senator did was give license to that thought. >> i don't think that she is necessarily giving license to it. and people can go out and have peaceful protests. >> she is certainly condoning it. >> she went on to say in that interview, also, that she, you know, was very much against it she just former state prosecutor. she knows very well the situation that goes on in the court system. and sometimes, i mean, yes, justice is blind, sometimes it works. sometimes it doesn't. >> let me give monica the last word here. okay. this comes down -- there is going to be protests no matter what happens because you have the hard core anti-american people out there entrenched, not ferguson people just
5:26 pm
organized we hate america people. but i'm hoping that the folks, the regular folks, they won't do anything. >> well, ye, -- yeah, look, i think there has been a disservice ginning up a reaction. getting the momentum to go so that there is a reaction in place prompting protesters on how to protest or putting out bullet points how to protest and demonstrate. >> they did that at washington college in st. louis. >> exactly. >> we will get into that later on. >> ladies, thank you, plenty more aas the factor moves along this evening. dennis miller worried that global warming may cause a war. find out what that's about. dick cabot funniest americans ever. we hope you stay tuned to those reports.

5:31 pm
>> all right. that was about 14 months ago. do the people like it so far? >> well, when you look at the poll numbers, actually, the majority of people do not like obamacare or the oo. fordable care act. at least right now. 37% of americans approve of the law. a 6 disapprove. that's according to the latest gallup numbers. these numbers come out on monday. the information was gathered just after this most recent election earlier this month. >> why don't they like it? what's wrong with it? >> well, there are a couple of major factors. there is costs. one of the things costs continue to go up. >> 3,000 for the average american family, that's the last stat i heard. >> even more. more than 4,000. >> more than 4,000 now? >> there is 3% increase in the family run plans and the biggest thing we have talked about this before, deductibles have risk by about 47%. >> that's the hidden deal.detuct you have to pay before the insurance company reimburses you say it's up 47%. >> one of the major aspects here, one of the biggest

debts happened in november of 2013. that's when people were told they wouldn't be able to keep their policy. that's when a lot of folks found out if they liked their policies they thought they were going to keep them and that didn't happen so things. >> taking all of that i want to reemphasize. the reason most people don't like obamacare is that their deductibles are going up on average of 47%. that's enormous. and that was not the way it was sold. all right, i want you, sean, to listen to the second sound bite from senator harry reid. >> as we speak, there are 9 million people who have insurance who didn't have it before. there is about 2. a million who have gotten insurance on the web. we have -- including the 14 exvarious states, including nevada. we have 3 million people who are are on -- have insurance
5:33 pm
now because they are on their parent's insurance, can stay there until they are 26. >> after that the senator took a nap. he was exhausted by getting all that out. okay. so let's run down the stats. 9 million, what's that. >> no, no. he is wrong. at the time when he said that it was just over 8 million. he was close. >> he was a million light. >> 900,000, exactly. yes. now, i went on the obamacare web site today and it claims the number is 15 million. other experts say it's not that high. 13 million. >> people have insurance through the exchanges. >> people not insured before and are insured now. >> 15 million who didn't have any insurance. now are on some roles? >> that's what it claims. >> what's what the web site says. >> the actual number is even lower than that. 7.1 million. >> where does that come from? >> that's what the government says. >> i don't understand. if the obamacare web site is saying 15 have it that didn't have it before and the administration said 7.1 have it, who is right?
5:34 pm
what's going on? >> that's one of the issues, part of the problem here. the fact is the secretary of health and human services is seeing that they will be at 9.1 million. or maybe 9.9. >> obamacare web site is deceiving us? >> that says on the obama web site if you go to it, it says 15 million people who weren't covered before now have insurance. >> right. but the government says it's more like 7 million? >> 7.1. and they assume it will be over 9 million next year. >> all right. now, of the people who didn't have insurance, do we have any stats? let's say the stat is 7 million, all right? let's say it is. maybe it's 15 but i don't think so. how many of those getting free. >> well, the big problem with this is people aren't paying. the president in april said there were 8 million. they lost about a million because people didn't pay. >> they didn't pay the little they had to pay or whatever so they were booted? >> and you still have 41 million estimated americans without insurance and they apparently are worried they won't get it
5:35 pm
more people have insurance because of doss and other issues. >> okay. but we don't know how many of the ones the newly enrolled ones are being subsidized? we don't know that stat? >> no. i don't have that. >> okay. we have got to get that that's what it is all about. the people who are getting a free ride, they love it. but the people whose deductible goes up, they don't love it so much. truth serum, everybody, when we come right back, it will be miller time. charles manson getting married. global warming and war and corporate pot. they are all high. miller is next. patented sonic technology with
