tv The Story With Martha Mac Callum FOX News August 8, 2017 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT
fair, balanced, and unafraid. a lot to cover these days and we have you covered on "special report." "the story" with dana perino starts right now. >> dana: breaking tonight, president trump issuing an extraordinary, dyer, and perhaps unprecedented warning to north korea. >> north korea best not make any more threats to the united states. they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never seen. >> dana: just minutes ago, this breaking over the wires, north korea has said to be "carefully examining a plan to strike the u.s. pacific territory of guam." an alarming alert. fox news has now confirmed that
u.s. intel believes north korea has successfully made a nuclear warhead that can be carried by their in intercontinental ballistic missiles. our experts thought this was years away but is now at our doorstep. it was just last month that a north korean icbm test showed the regime is capable of striking american cities and with this new threshold, we must come to a decision sooner than we might have thought. we will be joined by dan sullivan, the citizens of alaska already within range of the striking weaponry. but but first, thank you so mucr being here. americans now are very concerned. how do you feel about the north korean situation, showing that 72% are uneasy about a conflict? 60% believe it's a threat that
can be contained. that was a poll taken days ago. i wonder what people would think now. what do you think? >> i think that guam, it should be taken with a grain of skepticism. south korean media told us that kim jong un's uncle was eaten by dogs and that was false. >> dana: because they want to try to provoke a reaction from president trump like the one they had? >> no, like the fake news here. you want to run with any crazy story. >> dana: this not coming from the government necessarily? >> exactly. when you hear that north korea is crazy and not rational, we have a lot of people who watch this show who strong supporters of the second amendment. if rex tillerson showed up and said give me your guns, they would be very skeptical. they are very rational in their behavior but also very evil, sinister people.
>> dana: i understand that the north koreans want to control their regime and survival. but using those nuclear weapons would ensure its demise. >> 100%. if you have one shot to take it, you are not going to be taking it at walmart. this is the reason they are in power. it at walmart. military first, the entire basis of their ideology is our military comes first and how do you convince the regime who operates under these assumptions and propaganda based on assumptions to de-escalate? it's almost impossible to figure out how to square this circle. >> dana: what are the dangers, you know this man better than anyone. how would this regime react to something that might be an accident? is there potential that things could ratchet up so much that
kim jong un overreacts to something and sparks an actual military conflict? >> anything is conceivable. they want to survive. they've been around for 70 years and they've outlasted everyone in the soviet bloc except for cuba. obviously they are doing something right in their holding power. when it kim jong un for his father, his campaign was did not expect any change for me. >> dana: how isolated do they feel after the vote on saturday? >> they call themselves a shrimp among whales. they revel in the fact that they are a small country. this is a source of pride that it's us against the world for them. it makes it even more difficult for them to engage with other countries. >> dana: as we look to china to try to help us, with the sanctions that were put in place, about a billion dollars but will it hurt enough what you think there needs to be more pressure brought to bear? >> they were more than happy to
allow 10% of their population starving me '90s. i don't know if the sanctions are going to work in that way. the good thing about the sanctions, the international community allied against them. instead of saying americans versus us, it's the whole world against them. >> dana: here now, a senator whose state is within range. it dan sullivan, alaskan senator. he served on the armed services committee. what you hear from citizens back in your state? you might be there now or maybe you are in d.c. i show that poll from cbs. people across america are concerned. what's the level of concern in alaska? >> there's concern like all americans but there's also pride. alaska is the cornerstone of our nations missile defense. i have a bill to bolster our own missile defense but right now,
there aren't alaskan's 24/7, our 49th missile defense battalion is literally protecting the country because they can shoot down any missile coming from kim jong un to america that the alaskan guard unit -- they call themselves the 300. protecting the 300 million. that's what they are doing. protecting us. >> dana: what would your legislation do and do you have bipartisan support? >> strong bipartisan support read 27 democrats and republican senators. it would increase the number of ground-based interceptors. our homeland missile defense, and it would encourage much more testing. we've seen some tests that we need to do more on missile defense. everything needs to be including more robust missile defense for the homeland. >> dana: all of that sounds well and good but how soon do you need to do that? congress will be back for a while. is this something that needs to
be on the fast track? >> i think so. this is already part of the national defense authorization act. i'm very confident that my bill will be passed when congress comes back in september. >> dana: are concerned that something good happen in the meantime? it seemed like the urgency has been ratcheted up. i wonder if the administration and white house could actually do anything without congressional support that would bolster these defenses? >> look, there's a lot they can do but the broader point is, i believe effective diplomacy requires military options. you are seeing effective diplomacy right now. i applaud rex tillerson and nikki haley for what they did in the u.n. this past weekend but if one of the military options that the administration is looking at is a preemptive war on the korean pill and saw pent would require the authorization
of congress. >> dana: i wanted to ask about that. i understand congress would say mr. president, you need to come to us first but if we are in a situation where we don't have time to have a debate at congress and for a bill to be signed and all the rest -- what are the options at that point? >> look, you guys were talking about a launch by north korea. you were talking about at the qualm. we have a missile defense unit at guam. the president can react to an attack on the country in a way that he has broad authority on that. i was mentioning the discussions of a preemptive war on the peninsula, that clearly goes in the realm of the authorization of congress. >> dana: is there any talk about having that discussion sooner than later on the hill? >> i've raised this with a number of administration officials. none of them have pushed back on
this. one of the things the president and his team have done very well in terms of their diplomacy up to this point, dana, they have included the congress. i think there's a lot of bipartisan support. for with the trump administration is doing, particularly on the sanctions both at the u.n. -- you may have seen that we passed sanctions just two weeks ago. very bipartisan. right now, the ministrations working closely with the congress. i think they need to continue to do that but we are supportive of their diplomatic efforts right now. >> dana: dan sullivan, thank you for being here tonight. it still ahead, an employee memo circulating internally at one of the biggest tech giants has sent off a firestorm. up next, we debate pc culture and programmers and whether this employees reported termination was fair. "new york times" under fire from the white house yet again. how a supposedly leaked climate change report set off the latest war of words.

at that part is irrelevant. that clip from hbo's "silicon valley" tackling gender issues in in the tech communit. an ideological echo chamber, the engineer argues the low number of women in the tech industry as a result of biology, not bias. trace gallagher has the fallout tonight, live from our west coast newsroom. trace. >> even after the ten page memo went viral -- part of building an open inclusive environment means fostering a culture in which those of alternate views including different political views feel safe sharing their opinions. then, google apparently had second thoughts, reportedly firing software engineer james damore, who is sharing his opinion because portions of his
memo "crossed the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace." that statement is in reference to mr. damore's comments about men being more capable of physically demanding jobs and women have higher anxiety, lower stress tolerance and little interest in people instead of things. the hope of having an honest discussion, about how google has an intolerance for ideologies that do not fit into liberal biases and how dissenters are shamed and silenced. commentators are all of her twitter after google, for what they call blatant hypocrisy. ben shapiro writes "diversity is our strength, this orwellian claptrap coming from people who can't handle a memo that says men and women are different. it's to google, men and women are different. you can promote true diversity
if you pretend differences don't exist. it's worth noting that google and other tech companies are also dealing with ongoing criticism that they have not done enough to promote women and minorities. software engineer james damore says he will likely pursue legal action against google. dana. >> dana: thank you, trace. here with more, political editor and co-author of "end of discussion." and julie, i want to start with you. you're going to get all of this commentary like they say they want to open inclusive talks but then they fire somebody who actually expresses their thoughts. this is getting to something underlying underneath. what lies beneath it? there must be a huge amount of tension about women not getting promoted or feeling that they are working in some sort of hostile place. what do you of that? >> there's a lot of tension in silicon valley and google has been subject to a lot of
criticism. they come up against sexual harassment cases, they've been accused of paying their female employees considerably less than their male employees. an official said google was systematically discriminating against female employees. in the tech world in general and google specifically, this is something that gets to the heart of the issue and this memo really touched on a lot of these points. i'm not denying that there are certain inherent biological differences between men and women. i do think this piece was improperly sourced. it really did not tell the whole story. that sort of on two fronts. yes, there are some inherent biological differences but so much of how women behave and are treated in the workplace is because of socialization and once they get into the workforce, women in tech are less likely to get promoted. they are more likely to be interrupted. they are paid less, more likely to be sexually harassed. a ton of tension and -- >> dana: there's possible
reasons for all of those things you just said. guy, let's talk about the fact that the west coast culture, police come after conservatives all the time and yet when this memo, which was internal, suggests that maybe we should just have an open dialogue about these things i think andy ends up getting fired. was that over the top? >> of course it was over the top. it's not a fireball offense to state his opinion in the way he did. you have sort of these police people from various sectors of society coming in and purging and punishing viewpoints that stray from the prevailing ideology or viewpoint in any given circumstance. what's been very troubling aside from the decision to fire the guy, people with alternative viewpoints are being stifled and
google said you are fired. beyond that, a lot of the reporting on this controversy -- it seems like even within google itself -- a lot of the folks spouting out about it haven't actually read the memo. it's ten pages long and has been described by many as this anti-diversity screed. it's nothing of the sort. >> dana: no, i've read it. i will ask you, julie. there were reports that some women at google were so upset about this that they can go to work today. do you know anything about that? >> i did hear some of that. my response is twofold. on one hand, of course is the proper response to necessarily say i'm going to stay home and hide from this. but i certainly understand where they are coming from. if you are in a workplace saying hey, you are too neurotic for this job, you have too many feelings and you are too emotional, i i can certainly understand where i wouldn't want to go to that place and spend my
day. it exacerbates them and confirms that that's a really significant line of thought that exists in the tech industry. >> dana: guy, dude think he will have a successful case to bring against google? as a private company. i'm not here to tell them what they can and can't do. what he think about the legal case? >> i'm not a lawyer. i agree with you, as a private company and as a conservative, they have the right to do what they did. that does not make it the right thing to do. i think it's exactly the wrong thing to do and here's the thing, if this guy puts out this opinion nsaids here are my thoughts -- here's how we are really struggling to talk about issues openly at google, here's where i'm coming from on some of these questions, the appropriate response in a truly thoughtful and responsive community is great, let's debate that. let's push back. hang on. >> he gave a lot of bad points
too. >> dana: you are both younger than me. i will ask you this. one of the problems here is that nobody is actually talking to each other anymore. this is -- a ten page memo. posted on a saturday on an internal board and there's no chance for any sort of dialogue before the mob comes after you. instead, if google think they have such a big problem, julie, maybe it would be better to bring people together to talk face-to-face and maybe nobody would have to get fired or have their feelings hurt. so much that they stay home from work. >> julie, you said that he made some bad points. that's fine. i don't agree with everything you said about memo -- let's talk about it. it's because there were some bad points. >> let's talk about it and not fire the guy. >> a lot of the points, i don't want to say this is necessarily a right/left if issue. i think it's gender inequality,
that's not something that one party has full reign over. when people say oh, he's just speaking his truth. it don't pick it apart and don't figure out where the holes are. he totally is ignoring the effects that decades of socialization have on the ways that women approach the workforce and decades of socialization have on the way that women are then treated in the workforce. which is an equally and with discrimination and with unequal treatment. and a disregard for or skill set. i would say let's have the conversation. >> dana: i don't know if google advanced anything for either cause. but we are talking about it like adults. tonight, top u.s. law professor says rod rosenstein better recuse himself from the russian probe. jonathan turley is here to tell us why. plus, president trump today acknowledging the source devouring american lives, the
opiate crisis. how do we make this better and can trump lead the charge? just guitar love and senator huckabee are talking about the epidemic thatu is killing countless americans a day. boost. it's about moving forward, not back. it's looking up, not down. it's being in motion. boost® high protein it's intelligent nutrition with 15 grams of protein and 26 vitamins and minerals. boost® the number one high protein complete nutritional drink.

>> dana: new details after "the new york times" publishes details of a government climate change report they say was leaked to them, noting in the headline that scientists fear trump will dismiss blunt climate reports but no details to claim this may have already been a public report and the administration is -- ed henry joins us live from washington. it's become remarkable. a screaming headline on page one of "the new york times" that does not appear to be that new. the white house insist they never even got a call seeking comment for this big story. if the times had spoken to officials, they may have found out their ominous sounding story about the planet may not actually be as scary or as new as a claims. they declared that... recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1500 years. according to a sweeping federal climate change report, which is not yet been made public. the times charged scientists saying that a bug report needed urgent attention.
it had already been made public. and is being reviewed by the trump administration, actually. "the new york times" clarified that this has been out there but it's still new. the version posted yesterday was the third draft, which was public in march. this is the fifth draft which is not the white house for review. sarah huckabee sanders quickly lashed out saying it's very disappointing but entirely predictable to use "the new york times" would write up this draft report. before any of the agencies directly involved -- drafts of this report have been published and made widely available on line months during the public commentary. the times claims they reached out to the white house and the epa for comment. administration officials note that they have ten days to meet the august 18th deadline. americans are seeing more heat waves and rainfall because of climate change.
despite any disputes about which version of the report, there is action that's going to have to be taken at some point. >> dana: joining me now, governor mike huckabee. and jessica tarlov, both are fox news contributors. i'm glad you are here. let's talk about climate. i've worked at the white house. i think you were governor at the time. there was always a push. i'm not gonna blame "the new york times" but from the left and the worry that climate change was going to take a backseat. climate change is taking a backseat. al gore's new movie came in 15th over the weekend, on its debut we can. >> the reason it's a flop is because the people on the left to rarely believe this is the problem we have, you first. al gore is living in a 20,000 square-foot home, flying around on private jets. when he gives up his air conditioning and lives a minimalist life and rides on public transportation, then
al gore can tell me how i need to change my life. you first. that ought to be the pushback to every person who's going how about we've got to change everything. >> i'm sitting to your left. >> dana: on the political left. i'm a subway gal. i grew up in a house that uses solar panels. rare for new york new york cit. i think leo dicaprio and al gore should get off their jets if they are going to preach this. the climate community, with scott pruitt and rick perry and the president himself running around -- in d.c. style running around, as legitimate. data in this report that talks about things with the european heat wave in 2003, australia in 2013, there they were more liko have extreme weather in texas. those are important findings. >> dana: were trying to suppress but the document is
online is online. >> we'll be highlighted? will they take action based on this? not a good sign for making sure we continue president obama's legacy. >> dana: president trump called the opiate addiction epidemic for which it is. everyday in america, nearly 4,000 people start abusing opiates and an average of 78 people died because of them. that shocking reality no doubt weighing on the president when he were addressed reporters juo hours ago. >> nobody escapes from this epidemic that threatens people young and old. urban and rural communities. everybody is threatened. a drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in the united states. and opioid overdose deaths have nearly quadrupled since 1999. it is a problem. at the likes of which we have not seen. >> dana: governor, i wanted to start with you. when you were governor if this
had been happening, what would you have one of the federal government to do? >> not try to over help us. there's one thing that i would hope it happens. that's that we don't try to incarcerate our way out of this problem. that is not going to be effective. it's a serious issue, a medical issue. treatment and prevention more than punishing people, who find themselves physically addicted to a very toxic drug. >> dana: this is certainly not a partisan issue. >> absolutely not. >> dana: it's affecting people of all stripes. what would be a good approach? to actually try to do something that would be meaningful for governors dealing with this all across the country? >> i agree completely with governor huckabee's points. a key component here, making sure whatever health care bill comes out of the republican party -- make sure they are not any cuts to drug programs. that was a big issue for
moderates with the current bill in its form, which president trump supported but back to the primaries, one of the most moving moments out of the republican primaries to be a discussion of this crisis, carly fiorito and ted cruz. >> dana: and chris christie. everyone that was running for president, when they went to new hampshire, the first question out of town hall was about this crisis. >> there is an epidemic in new hampshire. not just new hampshire but it's a huge problem that people are aware of. i want to go back to the point -- i think the federal government always tries to take a template and put it 50 50 st. we have the fifth amendment for a reason. we should let a lot of these really laboratories of democracy find the ones that work and duplicate them. >> dana: thank you both. a big city mayor taking a step many of his peers would not.
changing his sanctuary policies to comply with the doj. he will explain how his community is reaping the benefits. our next guest says rod rosenstein should recuse himself from the russia probe. jonathan turley is here next, driving a lot of debate tonight and karl rove joins us with a first-hand perspective about what it's like to be under the special counsel probe when he is here inside the white house. and everyone's kind of stressed out. thoughts of next. >> i understand the specific scope of the investigation. no, it is not a fishing expedition. ir day building on over a hundred years of heritage, craftsmanship and innovation. today we're bringing you america's number one shave at lower prices every day. putting money back in the pockets of millions of americans. as one of those workers, i'm proud to bring you gillette quality for less,
the unpredictability of a flaree may weigh on your mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go, and how to work around your uc. that's how i thought it had to be. but then i talked to my doctor about humira, and learned humira can help get and keep uc under control... when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations and ask your gastroenterologist
if humira may be right for you. with humira, control is possible. put under a microscope, we could see all the bacteria that still exists. polident's unique micro clean formula works in just 3 minutes, killing 99.99% of odor causing bacteria. for a cleaner, fresher, brighter denture every day. for a cleaner, fresher, twith choices like the classicr. crab lover's dream and new favorites like dueling crab legs with dungeness and snow crab. it's happening right now right here at crabfest. red lobster. now this is seafood. >> if he finds evidence of a crime, can he look at that? >> if he finds evidence of a crime that's within the scope is the appropriate scope, he can. if it's something outside that scope, he has to come to the acting attorney general. for permission to expand his investigation.
>> dana: that was rod rosenstein who has come under fire from critics questioning his involvement in the russian investigation. constitutional law attorney jonathan turley echoed the criticism, arguing that he should recuse himself. writing that he is not only the ultimate authority on the investigation, he's also clearly a witness. there are times in multitasking is a talent but this is not one of those times. he was also a george washington university law professor. those students are lucky to have you. why do you think rosenstein should recuse himself and do think that's actually in the cards? >> i think it would have to be weighing on his mind. he's made references to the possible need to recuse himself. it seems to be perfectly obvious that he should have done so a considerable time ago. about 90 days ago. if you think you are a material witness, it's demonstrably the case that he's a material
witness, he should have taken himself out of the mix at that time. it's clear now that mueller is investigating -- high-ranking fbi officials that expect to be called before the grand jury. rod rosenstein would have to be at the top of that list. to justify the termination of comey. he reportedly classed with the white house about his account related to data memo. he was there before and after the termination. all of that makes him a very important witness. >> dana: to think there would be concerned that he would incur the wrath of the president that so mad that jeff sessions recused himself as well? >> this is an ethical issue. that should not weigh in the decision. i think he has to remove himself. it's very odd to have mueller reporting to an individual who has not only evidence but a personal or at least a professional stake in this.
his actions and decisions are going to come under scrutiny before the grand jury. he should have the investigator on the scope of that investigation reporting to him. >> dana: if he refuses himself, then who would be in charge? >> it falls to the next person in the department of justice, third in command. there is not going to be anti-interruption. the special counsel investigation largely runs on its own. i should say this in his defense, it's relatively limited. but it's still a supervisory role. if he's delaying this antilles called before the grand jury, i find that deeply troubling. you don't wait to remove yourself for an actual call to the grand jury. every indication that he would have to be consulted. if they're going to do a full investigation. >> dana: currently there was some reporting that the president's lawyer may have reached out to bob mueller and
said hello, thank you for what you're doing. were you surprised by that? >> yes, it does come across as a certain kiss of death. good to see you. some people have even said it could constitute criminal intimidation. which is a rather odd idea. if that's criminal intimidation, then executors are serial killers. >> dana: thank you, jonathan turley. now for a unique perspective, a man who knows what it's like to be the subject of an investigation while working for the white house. karl rove, senior advisor to former president george w. bush. what is it like for the white house now? you had i worked together. it was no secret. i was a spokesperson for a time. we certainly know it could be's stressful. >> sure, better to deal with that press stress in private.
it dully or colleagues see you worry. don't have that worry and fear pushed off in a box. stay focused on your job. i knew i had done nothing wrong. and i had a fantastic attorney who i had every confidence in and at the end of the day, it worked out just like i expected it would. what was surprising was i didn't know who had leaked the name to a columnist and reporter robert novak until it was all over and it turned out it was nobody in the white house. it was under richard armitage but the justice department knew that. right at the beginning. and the day the special prosecutor walked in, he knew who had leaked the name and he knew there was no violation of law in the leaking of the name. >> dana: to think there is a concern for the trump white house might be going beyond his scope and looking into things that have nothing to
do with the original allegation? >> yeah, i'm sure there will be some things that were not publicly discussed but i have enormous respect for professor jonathan turley. he is a great professional scholar and his students are lucky to have him but i want to raise a cautionary note. in his piece in the hill, obstruction allegations against president trump, the link in the particular sentence, they have a link to his source, a "wall street journal" article that makes no mention of obstruction. he goes on to the next paragraph and quotes another report. at that fbi officials are going to be called before the grand jury. this is from a fellow name murray wasp. i knew him from my own experience. she continually -- >> dana: [laughs] i was going to say, this name rings a bell. >> he was continually writing the most ridiculous things, year
after year. even after patrick fitzgerald had told my attorney that there were no problems for karl rove, he's out. he continued to write as if i was going to be momentarily indicted. my confidence in murray as a source, he says to go senior law enforcement officials supposedly told him this. i went back and looked at some of his reporting, he was constantly quoting senior law enforcement guys. >> dana: i remember that guy giving me heart attacks. can i ask you about one other thing that happened today? senate majority leader mitch mcconnell was back in kentucky speaking to the rotary club and he was talking about some frustrations about getting things done and expressing this. take a look. >> our new president has of course not been in this line of work before. and i think had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen. in the democratic process. >> dana: he went on to say,
i'm not going to play it just for time, there's a reality of the complexity of legislating and basically it's better to under promise and over deliver. i do think that's been a problem and can they turn that around when they come back in the fall? >> this is interesting. i would not have expected the majority leader to make this kind of comment. it's absolutely true and he's right on target. i wrote about this in my "wall street journal" column last week. the administration needed to under promise and over deliver. they are saying things are going to happen quickly and things are going to be completely solved easily. frankly, the challenges the country face require difficult answers. they are not going to be solved easily and quickly and at lower expectations and people will be happily surprised when you exceed them. >> dana: karl rove, thank you so much. earlier this year, miami-dade agreed to cooperate with the feds on law enforcement -- that

am also nonpartisan. a lot of the party politics may be playing into this. they haven't reached out to me. i note the mayor -- the mayors from l.a., they haven't reached out to me. they have their thoughts on the matter and i think what we are doing in miami-dade county is the right thing to do. upholding the law. but also protecting our citizens. i don't think there too many people in america that would want some of these individuals that we have picked up, the charges they've been picked up on, to be part of our society. i think we are doing the right thing there. and for that, we will now be eligible to receive the federal funds that we've had in the past. >> dana: how important are those federal funds to your operation and making sure the police and law enforcement can do what they need to do? >> we get a recurring funds on a formula basis every year. we also apply for millions of dollars and grants.
we are the largest department in the united states to have body worn cameras. $1 million came from the department of justice for us to put body cameras on our police officers. we get technology from these grants. we get hardware from these grants. also personnel. we have police officers on the streets of miami-dade county right now that are paid through these department of justice grants. it's very important that we receive these funds in order to enhance the safety of our citizens here in miami-dade. >> dana: you have shown other mayors across the country how it could be done. hopefully they are watching tonight. nonpartisan, that's a good thing. tell it like it is. mayor carlos gimenez. thank you very much. we will be right back. ♪
