use their facilities for boys and girls sleepover camps in 2008 and 2009. it's unknown if the former assistant coach attended those camps. sandusky was given an unenforceable ban from campus in 2002 and banned from the charity in 2008. sandusky has held sleep over camps through other penn state campuses through his own foundation. could have been a marriage security breach involving president obama. you may have remember the president visited the country last week. now australian journalist claiming he found a white house document filled with classified information in the middle of the street. >> i was wondering where that was. the booklet contained the president's itinerary. list of cell phone numbers belonging to top u.s. and australian officials. all right whose back fact did that fall out of it.
>> this happens. you put your stuff on the top of the car then you get in the car and drive off. >> they put their coffee on the top of the car and drive off. >> oh my goodness. >> check in with rick reichmuth who has done that plenty of times. >> super big gulp. >> more interested in the slurpee. >> take a look at the maps right now. big headlines going on. everybody getting ready for the thanksgiving week. severe storms moving into the south again. kind of a repeat of what we saw last week. unfortunately we will see more in tornadoes. very cold weather across the far northern plains. california today. rain and snow storm in california means big troubles this week in everybody traveling. kinks because of that temperature map you can see the cold air solidly in place as cro the plains. contrast between kansas city and dallas. that's where the cold front is set up. it will stall out right there. along with that means a threat of severe weather along that boundary. scattered showers across parts
of the east. not going to be a big deal. when you head towards places like padduca and memphis that's where heavy rain is and throughout the afternoon places like texas and arkansas are going to be seeing some severe weather fire and that's going it be the case over the next couple of days. all of that is going to get moved across parts of southern california. that will bring in rain toward los angeles and as that ejects a very, very slowly ought across the four corners that will set the stage for severe weather this week. down across the south still cool across the far northern plains. start to see a slight warm upper across the eastern cities by the time we get to tomorrow. just a slight warm up. back to you. >> thanks so much, rick. talk about the super committee because at this hour, who, it is unraveling. i mean, and a lot of people think it could be dead in the water. senator kyl says this super committee is likely to fail. listen to his ominous words. >> i think that's pretty
doubtful at this point. but obviously nobody wants to quit until the stroke of midnight as you can see here by my presence. no matter what happens, congress has to reduce spending by $1.2 trillion one way or another. it would be better if we could reach an agreement on how to do it but if we don't then there is the sequester. >> that could have been sunday bite from last summer. a mini me of what happened over the summer. >> absolutely. so this wednesday is the deadline. however, really tell is the deadline. because they had to get the details to the cbo to score it and it doesn't look like it's going to happen. senator jon kyl says i think we are going to be left with a goose gleg i don't know if they are in the same room or not. >> they are not really talking. some of them having coffee and discussions. no hard core discussions in the past day or so. take a look at this deadline ali was referring to. it needs to be done today. they have to get it to the cbo and 48 mandatory review
period. they have to read the bill before they vote on it on the 23rd. it would be a 1.2 trillion-dollar trigger option goes into effect if they don't pass this thing. that would mean 492 billion in defense cuts. 123 in entitlements. by the way, not mentioned in any of that is the bush tax cuts. because the bush tax cuts would expire. >> that's right. we need to start calling them the bush obama tax cuts. >> because he extended them. >> he exextended them as well. >> after all these months when they were negotiating, and the people who were hand picked because they knew their way around capitol hill. they were considered good negative yearlts. they were going to go across the aisle and get something done. we are at that point they are at an elm pass and basically admitted failure today. >> already rationalizing failures. democrats go okay we protected the poor. we had to cut spending there a little bit. the defense budget. but we protected the poor. and on the other side the republicans will say see, we didn't have any tax increases.
>> right. no tax increases. what happens if this doesn't unfold. no plan to extend the tax cuts and the jobless benefit. if the automatic cuts is altered fear of another credit downgrade. we talked about that last summer. we talked about the debt ceiling debate. moody's of course downgraded us. >> so s&p s&p downgraded us, right? >> moody's. >> moody's. that's right. >> there is discussion that other downgrades could be coming down the pike because the super committee fails. i must admit i'm confused this morning. >> you should be. this is a mess. here is why. i thought that the sequestration the trigger effect was put in there to avoid a downgrade. we have plan. beings n. case we can't come to an agreement we have plan. >> the downgrade, the ratings agency says we don't want the trying tore go into effect because that then proves the
solvenciy of the united states. if the super committee can't find where to cut money and put triggers in -- >> who called the super committee the dumbest thing? >> newt gingrich. >> it was newt. maybe that's why he is going up in the polls. >> speaking of that the candidates out there in iowa last night. iowa voters, politico giving newt gingrich a lease on life back when they met with him in february of last year weren't terribly impressed with him. weren't sure why he is running. they is gotten fired up about and it excited about it. >> frank luntz was moderating. they asked the candidates about how they feel basically about war. here is where you can see a real disparity in some of their philosophies. so let's watch this montage. >> as commander and chief, i will not send our young men and women into war unless it is clear why the mission and the definition of victory.
and, thirdly, i would not send them into war unless i would send my own son and daughter. >> i think it is an utter tragedy of what is happening, bad economics and war is two most destructive things to the family. >> send those young men and women with the equipment to win. don't let some congressman sitting in an air conditioned office in washington, d.c. deciding what the rules of engagement are. [ applause ] >> let those war fighters win the war. >> you come into our country and you kill 3100 people, and we will do whatever it takes to eliminate your capacity to threaten us ever again. and i would be tougher and more decisive. >> i think you could have predicted those answers, wouldn't you? >> yeah. >> certainly ron paul. he wants to bring all the troops home now. >> interesting to hear them all clustered together. there were many emotional moments i would say here at this family forum.
particularly when frank luntz who was moderating asked all the candidates to share a personal story about their own challenge. let's listen. >> walking out of that surgeons office, after she had just told us stage 4 -- >> take your time. >> i said i wasn't going to do this. [ laughter ] >> it's as bad as it gets. i will never forget before my wife and i were about to get in the car, i said i can do this. she said we can do this. amen. [ applause ] >> i decided that the best thing i could do was to treat her differently and not love
her like i did because it wouldn't hurt as much if i lost her. >> sea very close friend. he spent six years with a shouldn't in the back of his head. he has a good heart, a good brain. is good at baseball and football. you look at that and you say to yourself all right. do i want some bureaucracy deciding that on a percentage basis this is not worth the investment or i do want a country that cares about every life at that depth? that is what next year is all about. [ applause ] >> i feel like dr. phil. [ laughter ] >> frank, dr. phil. >> man, that was intense. >> i don't know that i have ever seen anything like that. >> i haven't either. >> not in one setting around
one table with politicians. i'm a choir -- cryer myself. if you start asking me about my children i will start crying myself. >> were they are fine. >> one of the early moments that had a lot of people talking on twitter and firing up. michele bachmann decided to get up and serve all of the other men there water. she said i served a lot of water in my life. got up and poured their glasses. >> that was nice. >> what was going on? >> much more on that. couple of other big highlights including that and some minor questions and some gaffes there from last night. >> we'll play those. check in on occupy wall street and the occupy movement all around the country. kind of a rough night in oakland, california also in washington, d.c. things got a little rowdy. so some more arrests. and then newt gingrich was asked about this. you know, it's ows occupy wall street. he said it should be owe. it seems like most of them feel like they are owed for
everything. >> interesting. >> they bring in food. they don't pay for their sleeping. et cetera. >> he made a point about history. is he a historian. he talked about back in the day in 1607 captain john smith. he went back to. >> wow. >> he made appointment jamestown. you had to fight for yourself go. out and work every day. otherwise, your little family wasn't going to eat unless you went to work. is he making the point that he feels the occupy wall street folks are owed things. and that people should be doing that for them. take a listen. >> all the occupy movement starts with a premise that we all owe them everything. they take over a public park they didn't pay for to go nearby to use bathrooms they didn't pay for, to beg from food to places they don't want to pay for, to obstruct those to go to work to pay the taxes to sustain the bathrooms and to sustain the park so they can self-righteously explain
that they're the paragons of virtue to which we owe everything. now, that is a pretty good symptom of how much the left has collapsed as a moral system in this country and why you need to reassert something as simple as saying to them go get a job right after you take a bath. [ applause ] >> i must say that that logic also confuses me, which is go get a job. the unemployment rate is extremely high right now. historically high. if it were that easy, millions of people would have a job. i mean, are we suggesting that everybody there can just go get a job? i hear a lot of people say that that suggests that people who don't have jobs are lazy? that's not where we are in this country right now. it's hard for people who have just graduated if that's who they are, if these are young kids to find work. so i'm looking forward to talking to our next guest about this. >> not just as cut and dried about jobs. of course talking about the snawttle and income inequality
in this country. seeing violence protests. 300 different incidents. blood pouring down his face after getting in a tussle with police. >> over 1200 arrests right now. >> occupy receipt had said previously they didn't want to be narrowly defined by their tactics. >> we don't understand their message it isn't necessarily coherent. >> that is the biggest problem. going to school, et cetera, et cetera. what is the message. what is the definitive message? bring in radio host, conservative columnist as well tony cats. tone, if i ask you what is the point of occupy, what do you think it is. >> oh, good lord. there is no point to occupy wall street except let's figure out what to do with more bodily fluids today. there quite literally isn't no point to occupy wall street. maybe in the beginning you could say they were having a conversation about the relationship between wall street and government and that government is picking winners and losers. that would have been legitimate. that ended on day four when
that whole movement got co-opted by the columnists of the world and big government people of the world who wanted to use this as a way of pushing their agenda. there is no point to occupy wall street. except rhetoric. >> there is the i do dialogue of a 99%ers vs. the 1%. >> i don't accept the premise of that conversation either. newt gingrich is absolutely right. you can't get a job if you spend your day and night sleeping in a park. if they moved occupy wall street to the front of a home depot, they would have more chances to get employment than in zuccotti park. >> that's the part i do want to ask you about. the idea just go get a job, that would be easy in a climate that isn't where we are right now with 9% unemployment. it's not just that easy to go out and get a job, is it? >> it's a two fold conversation. it's never necessarily easy. but it's impossible if you don't look. and, secondly, part of this conversation is that we dr. have created as newt was
alluding to this fantasy world where kids go to college, everything is paid for, it's unbelievably beautiful scene and they expect everything to be handed to them when they leave college because they have professors who teach them that everything should be handed to you when it's not handed to them, they get upset and they engage in this ridiculous conversation of income inequality. there is no such thing as income inequality. the stockbroker makes more than the school teacher. the school teacher exists off the excesses of the stockbroker and capitalists and people who pay into the system to allow the educator to exist. that's the reality. they are not engaged in reality. they are engaged in fantasy and enimanged in violent rhetoric and activity. >> these folks are getting arrested. do you think they see it as fantasy and they see this income inequality in this country and they say the system isn't fair. you are paying more in taxes, you are paying less in taxes. there is disparity they are seeing. they are getting arrested for it do you think it's complete
fantasy. >> we can engage in reality. if you don't go to work or try to go to work or if you don't try to create a company which america allows you to be the entrepreneur you want to be, you have no shot. but if you haven't seen this, john nolte over at big hollywood has put together the rap sheet, it is 302 different incidents that have taken place at occupy movement events across america. whether it's blood and urine being thrown on food carts when those food carts wouldn't feed the people for free anymore or stabbings or how many right there in new york where you had people going after school kids, threatening and bullying school kids. here is the real conversation. where is president obama? where are the leadership to talk about how this isn't a way to act and treat people in america? the president and the first lady are all about anti-bullying but they are okay with grown men and women yelling at school children on their way to school? i want someone to ask and i will be the first right here, where is the president?
mr. president, why do you condone these activities? why do you believe that these people have a message that is worthwhile when they are involved in rape and sexual assault. >> tony, have you made many great points. nice to see you this morning. thanks for coming on and being so fired up for this. >> it's hard to get coffee out of your system at that hour. >> he he managed. he made some great points. you can like the message as much as well as you understand the message and the points that the conversation. >> i get it. >> but the tactics seem to have changed since they began. >> the broader question though, there has been arguments that the left has co-opted occupy wall street. but also there is the criticism you heard from tony which is where is the president and democrats on it? so it seems a bit -- >> -- does any politician want to be associated with it. >> that's the question. one hand co-opt and other hand distancing themselves? i don't know that they understand the nuances of the debate to thrust themselves into it. >> a lot of people don't understand at all if there is anything to understand. >> a lot of viewers are going to have a lot to say on this.
find us on twitter. terrorist suspect linked to the deaths of five u.s. servicemen in iraq. now he may go free because of a legal loophole. can we work with the iraqi government or is it too late? >> and third day, thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. my daughters are coming in to visit and i'm in charge. i want to do something totally different. this is a turkey dinner with a southern flair. we have deep fried mac and cheese. deep frying a turkey. i will show you how to do that in a second. >> john is out there with buffalo sauce and turkey. >> remember this request from one marine? >> i just want to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the marine corps ball. >> the actress rsvp yes but thought a scheduling conflict would get in the way. did she go? >> we have the pictures. congratulations.

he answered the call or who was on othe other line. all right. those seem like important details. investigators are still trying to figure out why a u-haul truck suddenly sped up in front of a bunch of tailgaters killing a 31-year-old woman. this all happened before harvard yale football game in connecticut. the driver was carrying kegs of beer in the truck and in police custody. not clear if alcohol was a factor. two others were hurt in this crash. one is in critical condition this morning. the other is doing okay. students and faculty members at uc davis is calling for the school's chancellor to step down.

let me get back to you on that. listen up to this story, everyone. imagine never being able to smile. these three boys were born with facial paralysis and smiling was impossible. speech and eating were very difficult. but after life changing surgeries, all that has changed and now their mom has teamed up with operation smile for a very special project that will give other children their smiles too. joining us this morning, lisa lori and her boys, zachery, luke and griffin. welcome to all of you. >> hi. >> hi. >> great to he so you guys. so, lisa, all three of your children were born with facial paralysis. >> what does that mean for their child hoods? what could they and couldn't they do. >> it meant they couldn't close their mouth. it meant that speak was difficult. eating was difficult. and, of course, they obviously couldn't smile and almost had a total lack of facial expression. >> zach, i see you smiling now. and it's so great to see that. but tell me before the surgery, what your life was like. what was it like to not be
able to smile? >> i don't know. smiling, it helps me feel emotions. and like people can understand me better. >> yes. people can understand you better. can i understand that that makes perfect sense. >> so, lisa, you learned of a surgeon, and in toronto, i believe. that was world renowned. one of the only in the world who could do this. tell us about the surgeries that your sons have had. >> they had something called a muscle transplant. which means they had a muscle taken from the inside of heir leg and transplanted to their face. enabling them to connect the nerves and blood vostles, he is. that's enables them to smile. >> zach, do you remember the first time that you smiled after the surgery? >> um-huh. >> what was that like? >> it was great. >> was great? >> i felt really excited. >> you felt really excited.
i bet you did. and, luke, do you remember the first time that you were able to smile? >> no. >> no? >> how does it feel now? >> it feels better, much better. now can can i smile. >> i can see him smiling and hear him saying he feels much better to be able to smile. >> yes, yes. >> and you and your husband matt were so grateful after this surgeryhat you wanted to give back to the surgeon and you found out he was involved in operation smile. what did you decide to do? >> i teamed up with best girlfriend of mine from childhood her name is cathy van zealand she is handbag designer. we decided to create these

importance of detaining that individual but others as well that we're concerned about. >> do you agree with me that if he is tried in iraqi court it's not -- justice is not going to be delivered? he should come to the united states and be tried in the military commission? >> i think he would certainly find better justice here. >> and as the deadline for withdrawing troops from iraq grosecloseer the challenges get more complicated. security policy. nice to see you this morning, frank, welcome. >> good morning, what do you make of this as we approach this deadline here, we look back on this. let's be clear this agreement with the iraqis. this happened under george w. bush's watch. but then we have had a number of years since then and we still haven't managed to get this guy bring him back to the united states does this speak to the fact that both of these administrations have had a difficult time trying to work with the iraqi government?
>> no question. particularly as we have seen the obama administration making clear it's withdrawing from iraq. i think our leverage on them has really gone to practically zero. your clip has leon panetta saying is he likely to get more justice here or better justice here. that's a really under stated way of saying he is not going to get any justice at all in iraq if we leave him there. the problem here this is as you indicated a man who has american blood on his hands. he is a top hezbollah operative. hezbollah is, of course, not only a designated terrorist, according to the united states government, it's really the foreign legion of iran. it has the blood of many americans on its hands going back to 1979. and this idea that we will -- as things stand now, leave him behind in iraq because we can't, under the present administration's policy, bring him to guantanamo bay, or
resist the temptation they would have, i would think, to put him into civilian courts in this country is, really a microcosm of the very much larger problem this administration has compounding, i think you are right, some of the errors of the previous administration. taking them into a totally new and much more dangerous direction livening us at realistic are. >> talk about the risk we had up on the screen here this legal loophole. is it in the way we define these individuals that's getting us into trouble? you say it's crazy that we're calling these folks, quote, al qaeda and its affiliates. it's a broader terrorism swath? is that the issue here? >> right. well, the authorization for the use of military force, which was adopted by the congress overwhelmingly, immediately after 9/11, talks about those individuals, organizations, and nations that afflicted us with those attacks. there is now, in federal
court, very compelling evidence that iran is one of those nations, that it enabled and otherwise facilitated the attacks of 9/11. this isn't something that has generally been discussed. but there is affidavits and other compelling evidence that from iranian films indicating that's what happened. >> does that -- that's a huge moment? that means that we have the authorization, congress has already authorized the president to attack iran? >> well, i think you can certainly interpret it that way. it's a better interpretation for sure than saying the only people that we have the authority to go after are al qaeda. and, you know, we do a book about a year ago talking about what makes these guys particular, whether -- these guys tick. hezbollah, there that what they call cherie a barbaric,
totalitarian islamic doctrine that says we must be destroyed. so to parse this so finely that guys that have american -- not that they were just trying to kill americans. this guy actually did kidnap and kill five americans. he is going to walk when he adheres to sharia and he is going to return to the battlefield, it is insane and irresponsible on our part and we must not let this happen where do you draw the line. people speak against america. or hate america. where do you draw the line and say these are the individuals we can arrest on a battlefield? where is that legal limit? >> they call it capturing people on the battlefield. not arresting them. that's one of the important points i would say a distinction between george bush generally fought the war and how barack obama is prosecuting it these people are being turned into defendants military has to
treat them forensic on the battlefield make sure they are properly tried with civilian courts and american's constitutional rights at their disposal. that's nuts these are enemy terrorists. this guy should be put in guantanamo bay or at least untiles who tilts is over. to answer your question, we have to define this thing properly. broadly we are up against cherie and a everybody who adheres to it. by violence like it or not. >> sadly out of time. >> frank gaffney great to see you. >> appreciate the opportunity. >> coming up, more "fox & friends" in two minutes. is to keep it whole for better nutrition. and that's what they do with great grains cereal. see the seam on the wheat grain? same as on the flake. because great grains steams and bakes the actual whole grain. now check out the other guy's flake. hello, no seam.

"fox & friends" hour two starts right now. captions by closed captioning services >> thanks for joining mike jared in for dave briggs. >> up late because you went to the big twilight premier. >> you know, i saw a review of that. a couple of my friends saw it was fantastic. they said breaking yawn. >> you have seen it? >> the kids love it. >> if you saw the box office numbers through the roof. it's going to win the weekend. >> philadelphia, i work in philadelphia. at the fox station there i do a morning show. thanks for watching. >> get to the point. >> philadelphia marathon is today. a bunch of my friends are getting up right now. they have loaded up on pass attachment good luck to awful you running the philadelphia marathon. 30,000 people are going to show. >> you can actually run?
>> a lot of people have been running from me for years. >> let's talk about the news this morning. that is not good news. the super committee basically had until today, sure the official deadline was this coming wednesday. but they had to have something done by today so they could hand it over to the congressional budget office for scoring. this morning there is no good news that they have reached any sort of agreement. >> yeah. no news is good good news with gary ganuws. senator jon kyl came out. he was fired up about this. saying look there is no hope for success. take a listen. >> i think that's pretty doubtful at this point. obviously nobody wants to quit until the stroke of midnight as you can see here by my presence no matter what happens, congress has to reduce spending by $1.2 trillion. one way or another. it would be better if we could reach an agreement on how to do it. but, if we don't. then there is the sequester.
>> this is just like the debt ceiling. this is the mini me of the debt ceiling. >> i thought the new style n washington, d.c. take it to the 11th hour. make everybody sweat it out. take it to the 11th hour. take it to chicken and come together at the last minute and do something. that's not what is happening. >> now it's going to the eighth hour. >> going backwards. >> the deadline is off a little bit. let's just cash in our chips now. we got to get home to the kids, babysitter is coming. >> just like the debt ceiling. they started out big. that t. was going to go big, big like a 5 trillion-dollar cut idea. last friday. we were down to 700 billion. >> the speaker's office the idea of not tackling medicare, medicaid and no new tax increases. $693 billion. so what all happens if this doesn't happen? >> downgrade. >> take a look at this. put this up on the screen possibly but that's one of the issues here. this trigger will go into effect.
$1.2 trillion option would go in effect. what does it mean? $492 billion in defense cuts would happen. $123 billion in entitlements would be cut. there would be no plan to extend those tax cuts and the jobless aid. so the bush era tax cuts wouldn't be extended there as well under this plan. >> there is, as you were just alluding to, a fear that there could be another downgrade of our credit because this just shows we are unable to work out any agreement whatsoever when it comes to money and entitlements and taxes in this country. but, there is another cynical argument that i think we should introduce at the moment. far be it for me to be a cynic there winners here. it depends on how you spin it if the republicans or democrats win. some people, because of the trigger effect that goes, in some people get what they wanted. some people, in other words, not extending the tax cuts. some cuts in entitlements. some cuts in defense. maybe this is, by them doing nothing, maybe they can claim that they won or they took the high road.
>> by doing nothing -- >> this is what paul krugman argued this week in his column. the best thing to do is not have a super committee succeed. let it go. because all these cuts go into effect. others argue like the rating agencies who said if the super committee couldn't come to an agreement, another downgrade. more on that coming up, what this means for the country and your wallet a little bit later. >> last night in iowa they had something called a family forum in the state of iowa. very important state. first one to have the big election. many of the candidates got around the table and talked about many different things. it got emotional at one point. he we will show you that in a second. the topic of war was brought up. what would you do if war was staring you in the faces a a president? >> as commander and chief, i will not send our youngs men and women into war unless it is why the mission and the defense of victory. thirdly, i would not send them
into war unless i would send my own son and daughter. >> >> i think it is an utter tragedy of what is happening, bad economics and war is two most destructive things to the family. >> send those young men and women with the equipment to win. don't let some congressman sitting in an air conditioned office in washington, d.c. deciding what the rules of engagement are. [ applause ] >> let those war fighters win the war. >> you come into our country and you kill 3100 people, and we will do whatever it takes to eliminate your capacity to threaten us ever again. and i would be tougher and more decisive. >> a lot of things were discussed at that forum in iowa moderated by frank luntz. one of the things that came up was occupy wall street movement. rough night. simultaneously what was happening in other parts of the country in oakland and washington, d.c. there was a number of arrests.
number of violence outbreaks and arrests there were all sorts of problems last night. if you add it up. 300 i want different incidents of violence over the course of some of these occupy movements. >> yeah. so things seem to be reaching more of a boiling point. ever since they were thrown out of zuccotti park here in new york, they have been on the streets. there has been more disruptions. even as we reported this week kids trying to get to school were disrupted. this one we are looking at, oakland, you can see that there is more destruction there. newt gingrich, at the family forum, talked about his solution to these occupy movements. >> all the occupy movement starts with the premise that we all owe them everything. they take over a public park they didn't pay for. to go nearby to use bathrooms they didn't pay for. to beg for food from places that don't want to pay for. to obstruct those that are going to work to pay the taxes to sustain the bathrooms and to sustain the park so they can self-righteously explain
that they are the paragons of virtue to which we owe everything. now, that is a pretty good symptom of how much the left has collapsed as a moral system in this country and why you need to reassert something as simple as saying to them go get a job right after you take a bath. [ applause ] our last guest made a point about that i said if it's so easy to get a job. why is there so much unemployment. he made a compelling case at least look for a job. >> not going to find one down there in zuccotti park. at least spend your time looking for a job. doing something productive or creating a company or building something. >> getting a skill set. this is one thing a viewer wrote in after we were talking about this last hour. people are missing the point on this. i'm an employer and i can't find qualified employees right now. go out and get a new skill. go down to the library or doing something else to get that computer skill you need. doing other things to bolster your resume to get the job
that that employer would want. novel idea. >> constructive and destructive people have made that point before. constructive is what the country needs right now. >> furthermore, didn't we just have last weekend the story about all the companies having a difficult time finding the dirty jobs that americans don't want and all those jobs up in north dakota that they are hiring like crazy right now. >> i had some dirty jobs. >> [ laughter ] >> by that mean i hot fudge at friendly's. that's what i meant. okay. meanwhile, let's get to your headlines. because we have to tell threw is breaking news. tahrir square is swarming with protesters one day after government forces kicked them out. several hundred people reportedly spent the night there despite police attempts to drive them away. this comes after a second day of clashes that ended with 200 people reportedly hurt. the military clashed with thousands of protesters, rocks were hurled at police in riot gear who responded with tear gas. witnesses say several protesters were beaten. well, someone has got a lot of explaining to do this morning.
the australian government is looking into a major security mistake involving president obama. the president visited the country just last week and now an australian journalist is claiming that he found a white house document filled with classified information in the middle of the street. the booklet reportedly contained the president's itinerary, details of his security convoy, and even a list of cell phone numbers belonging to top u.s. and australian officials. all right. a homecoming fit for a hero in tampa, florida this weekend.

grateful. >> first of all, i would like to thank god for this opportunity because i'm alive and able to walk around and enjoy my family and my friends. a lot of people here have come to support -- a lot of people i don't even know. >> my josh, what a ---my gosh. what a story of attitude. is he inspirational. those are your headlines. >> check in with rick now for a look at the forecast today. hey, rick. >> everybody is starting to think about travel. lots of travel going on starting today through the next couple of days. here is what is going on today there are going to be some delays, especially out across a lot of california. big storm there is going to make for some delays in san francisco and lang. dallas and memphis, you are both going to have spotty thunderstorms. when they start to pile up they could be worse than that move forward to tuesday. kind of that first get away day. we are going to be looking at some delays from texas through the ohio valley as that system kind of really begins to
develop there and going to bring a lot of rain and we're going to be looking at that threat for severe weather. tuesday night it kind of moves in towards the northeast. by wednesday, take a look at this. all of this rain that we're going to be dealing with in the east coast, not good news across that east coast. it's going to be meaning delays from new england to the atlanta area that busy hub, of course. we have got that rain. behind that for thursday we will clear out quite a bit. much colder in across much of that area. today looking pretty good out across the east. out across the west. that's where we have got this big storm big weather maker for us all week long. back to you. >> the super committee is on the verge of becoming a super failure. promise to go big by reaching a deal. mark says maybe they should go small. he will explain that. >> a personal side of the g.o.p. candidates. they got a little emotional, maybe a lot emotional at a family forum in iowa last night. what's got the waterworks going? we will play this for you after the break

>> there they are. the super 12. the super committee. once again at the 11th hour for the super committee. still seems unlikely they are going to strike a deal. listen. >> i think that's pretty doubtful at this point. but obviously nobody wants to quit until the stroke of midnight as you can see here by my presence. >> we're still working. i hope we can get there. but i don't know at this point in time. >> so does the dead lock mean the committee can't agree on any spending cuts whatsoever? joining us is mark, a former speech writer for george w. bush. nice to see you this morning,
>> mark. >> good. >> go home or go small. >> he he turned blue for a second, mark. >> "avatar." >> super committee might be behind it you are saying go small? why? >> look, the bottom line is the super committee is super pathetic, okay? we have got -- they were urged. >> don't mince words. not only are they going to meet their mandate they are going to come up with zero in cuts. that is quite simply pathetic. the fact is that even if you can't agree on entitlements and taxes, there is still hundreds of billions of dollars of spending that we could agree on on cuts. and they are not even going to do that the republicans put forward a plan on friday, a plan b, $648 billion in cuts. about half the mandate. and the democrats rejected it. and the reason they said was they there are not enough -- there interest no tax increases in this plan.
there is no tax increases in the sequester either. if they can't do 648 billion? how about 300 billion? how about 200 billion? how about 1 billion? something. >> what a fool i am on friday. the 700 billion no entitlement cuts, that seemed like it might work for them. no taxes. why did this one fail? i honestly think. the fight over who is to blame on this is going to start up pretty soon starting tomorrow and tuesday. pretty clear to me the democrats are belgt on failure here. the fact is the republicans have put forward two concrete serious proposals. first was the toomey plan which met the mandate and included a big concession, $300 billion in new taxes for the republicans. the democrats dismissed it and they never put on a counter proposal. and now they have put forward this 648 billion-dollar plan and the democrats dismissed it again. it's hard to escape the thought that maybe the democrats don't want this thing to succeed at all.
>> paul krugman argued that this week in the "new york times." hey, democrats, let this thing go. let it fail. at the end of the day that trigger is there. does that make democrats happy? that tryinger is there $1.2 trillion in cuts to defense and other programs. >> no, but it's going to be across the board cuts. at least we could do targeted cuts and choose what these cuts are going to be as opposed to cutting programs across the board including the programs the democrats care about. the reason they are sticking to their guns on this to win in november they are in a very bad position in this election. the only way they win in november is if they can't paint the republicans as intransigent and go negative on them. if we come up with a big deal that includes tax increases that's narrative. they are rooting for failure. >> thank you very much. have a good sunday. >> have a good thanksgiving by the way. >> ladies get out of survival mode by getting wicked. i'm talking in a boston sense. wicked good. >> i like this.

economic climate. that's no excuse. you can still have a lot of success. let's go through them because they are pretty fascinating. the first is commit to having a passionate work or a passionate life or both. what is that to you? >> well, passion is everything. that's how i built my business into a 16-million-dollar company. that's how i survived the recession. women probably spend more time at work than with their family. so, life is too short not to be passionate about work. >> meaning if you feel like you are just punching the clock, go and do something that you have a passion for? what if you love cooking but you should really start a cooking business? >> well, for some women it might be starting a cooking business. for another woman it might be trying to be passionate at the job she has to be in that moment. if you are passionate, you are more enthusiastic, you are going to attract people and attract that next big thing for yourself. >> less of a chore, obviously. i love this one. you say go for it or reject
it. and this is about the dreams that we all harbor for years. you say it's time to sort of put the pedal to the metal. >> the challenge for moms are moms are the chief everything officer. so, they are not only the ceo of their career but also housekeeping, transportation, child care, education, all of the above. and so, what they have to to do is rally the family behind their dream just like they rally behind everyone else's dream. >> start enacting your dream. take one action step per day towards your dream. that's a good one because some of us procrastinate. >> this is the buck up promise. when i started my business, i just had to buck up. i had a full-time job. i still had to go home every night and do something on my business. and so for many women, this is going to be the biggest challenge. you have to, again, get your family involved. it's okay for your husband and your kids to help with the
housework. it's not going to kill them. >> what a novel concept. i like that. number 4. i commit to being a success student for life. and you say that part of this is carving out time for yourself. when can you do that? >> wake up for yourself in the morning not for your kids. not for your man. and not for those time sucking distractions like farmville. get up 30 minutes early. put those 30 minutes to work for your personal and professional development. >> i'm going to start getting up at 2:30 a.m. meanwhile, you say -- believe that as a woman you really can do everything. this is your own sort of personal pep talk. >> this is huge for me. when i first walked into an attorney's office for the very first time, i'm facing this texas good old boy. i'm shaking. i don't know how i'm going to get out of the interview. then i thought i'm reajsterred nurse. if you were in the hospital with your hospital gown on and your back side showing, i would have no problem talking to you, sticking with you a needle or worse.

obviously still there on the surface and how intense the struggle was. i had never heard rick santorum talk about his daughter born with a disease. very interesting. >> michele bachmann did not cry. but, remember when hillary clinton cried and there was all that curflufol in the press. no one talking about the men crying it's cute. >> >> it's endearing. >> new age. everybody can cry now. we have made progress. >> that was real. >> yeah, it was. let's get to your headlines. we have to tell what you is happening in the news because libya's interim prime minister saying the captured son of muammar qaddafi will get a fair trial. saef al islam was found near the border. they want him tried to libya. no word when he will be transferred to the government. they are concerned he won't get a fair trial. they want to charge him with crimes against humanity. another bizarre twist in the case of missing baby lisa

. >> sounds like science fiction stuff in my wheel house. tested a scientific weapon not fake. look at that thing. school hit anywhere on earth in under an hour. what does this mean for the military. senior associate of the nuclear policy program at the carnegie. nice to see you this morning, james. >> good morning, clayton, how are you? >> i'm doing very well. sounds like science fiction what i said there in the intro. is it real and is it workable. >> well, this is the first successful test of one of these types of weapons. and this isn't a weapon that could hit anywhere in the world within an hour. but it is longer term development program. the goal of that program is indeed to come up with a system that can hit anywhere in the world within an hour. and that's going to be a tremendous technical challenge. >> let's talk about the technical side of this. this is the third test, only the first two weren't terribly successful. we heard about one of them breaking up over the ocean. didn't really work. this is the third one that finally was successful.
what exactly does it do? it's not taking off as i understand it like a typical rocket, right? >> this is actually the third test. but the first two tests were something slightly different. the air force is developing the ferrari of these systems, if you like. the army, which was the system tested recently is going for something a lit less ambitious. this is like the bmw of these systems. what this bmw missile does is it's launched by conventional rocket. but it doesn't go into space. it stays in the atmosphere and then it glides at very high altitude. very quickly. without being powered. it's t. really is a super glider. >> wow. interesting. i'm thinking of this and i was talking with the producer early this morning about this. thinking about the cuban missile crisis, for instance, just a short time ago in american history when our concern was having missiles in the western hemisphere that could hit us and because at that time they couldn't really hit us from another
continents. now we are talking about hitting any target on earth within an hour? >> you know, clayton, there a number of countries, five at the moment that already have intercontinental ballistic missiles. the u.s. homeland has been vulnerable for some time. i think the big question these system raise is what are they going to be used for? at the moment, the technological development of these systems is proceeding faster than the doctrinal development. >> that's interesting. it makes an interesting point and how precise will the targeting be? can we sit there with someone in albuquerque decides they want to hit a target in afghanistan. will they be able to do it with pinpoint accuracy? after all it's gliding down. >> that's the big question. in order to fulfill any of the missions that this system might try to be used for, you need extraordinary accuracy. within a few meters. and that is going to be one of the key challenges in this development pathway is will
these systems be accurate enough to do the missions, to which they might be assigned. >> james acheton, senior carnegie endowment. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much. >> coming up on the show, tearing down signs and fences. occupy movement turning violent overnight. why is the government still supporting them. >> one retired nypd officer being told to take down his 9/11 flag or pay a price for his patriotism. he joins us next to talk about it. regions quick deposit lets you deposit checks right from your office. so sitting at your desk is just like going to the bank. see? i'm at the bank. now i'm in the office. at the bank.

white stripes. in the stripes are embroidered the names of every single person who perished on the morning of september 11th, 2001. >> here is what the management company says called benchmark only flag allowside american flag. the problem is he is flying two flags. until someone changes that, there is a problem. you received a letter, richard, saying that you have until tomorrow to take down the 9/11 commemorative flag or face a fine. what will you do tomorrow? >> that flag will still be flying very proudly at my house. >> it's always difficult because our job is to take both sides. so i'm going to attempt this because i agree with you. rules are rules. when somebody says to you, you know, this is one of the rules, you agreed to it by moving into this community you have got to follow the rules. >> yes. i do agree with that i do agree with the fact that we need to follow rules. we need to follow laws. if you think about it, every day laws are broken. laws are bent.
when a law enforcement officer stops a person for a traffic offense, he is allowed and he has the discretion whether to write that summons or not. let's face it everybody has been stopped once by law enforcement officer. they always ask for a break. >> it's one of those situations i just don't understand it who is going to complain? come on. keep us updated sir, will you, please? >> i certainly, will thank you. >> richard, thanks, good luck tomorrow. let us know what happens. >> thank you very much. >> coming up, ali, her fiance gave her the ultimate sacrifice and for our country as well. now she has decided to put a uniform on herself to honor him. he lost his life overseas. now she is going to go herself. >> and babies to the back of the plane. that's the new rule some airlines are setting for traveling parents. those parents are now fired up. we're going to have a fair and balanced baby debate still ahead.

super committee talk because it looks like tick to come particular tock. we're heading for a super failure. we thought the news might be better this morning. they might pull one of those 11th hour saviors all come to the table and make a final good faith compromise. no, it sounds as though they may be left with, as senator kyl of arizona said a big goose egg. listen to him. >> i think that's pretty doubtful at this point. but obviously nobody wants to quit until the stroke of midnight as you can see here by my presence. no matter what happens, congress has to reduce spending by $1.2 trillion one way or another. it would be better if we could reach an agreement on how to do it but if we don't then there is the sequester. >> they are going to have to do that today, right? the vote would be by midnight wednesday. that's the vote but the cbo has got to look at all the material. they have got to have it by tomorrow morning. >> have to have it by today and midnight monday night was
the super cut off. let's be honest. they have that 48 hour window where they have to review the bill. all members of congress look at it and review it before they can actually put it to a vote. that deadline is wednesday for that vote. >> what happens if nothing happens today? if they can't reach a compromise as senator jon kyl was just talking about? well, $1.2 trillion is triggered. the trigger option known as the sequestration goes into effect. that means that $492 billion will be cut out of the defense budget and 123 billion from entitlements. it also means there would be no plan to extend the tax cuts, the bush era tax cuts or the unemployment. >> right, the weeks. that would expire as well. >> of course, there is also the big worry about a credit downgrade which we saw earlier this summer as the -- as the debt ceiling debate unfolded and there was little confidence that we could get anything done in washington. almost no confidence votes. wasn't really about substance.
they were just saying looks like washington can't get anything done. i think as evidenced by the super committee one viewer wrote this morning can we stop calling them the super committee because they are no so super. >> lame committee. >> here is like the debt ceiling i'm not surprised that they can't come to a decision because it's just like last summer in the debt ceiling debate, right? that's why newt gingrich said this super committee is one of the dumbest ideas he has ever heard of. work will fill the time allotted and the time is out later today probably. >> let's talk about the occupy wall street protests that are still going on in so many pockets of the country. last night in oakland, things got a little hairy. they started a peaceful protests and there were thousands that had congregated. then, what happened is ended up causing destruction. aerial view here of oakland. they pushed over a chain link fence and they declared this, this i guess what we're looking at this parking lot was their new encampment. he they needed new area, new sort of base of operations. they called for more tents to
be brought. in you will remember that the tents were confiscated kicked out of wherever they were yet. they are trying to set up in new park. >> it was like an area to set up because we think this is symbolic of what they are trying to do with big business and developers which are coming in here. if we set up here, we're going to make a statement about it last night at this iowa forum that was moderated by frank luntz out there with the six of the candidates on hand to discuss some policies and different issues out there. occupy wall street came up and newt has a plan, take a listen. >> all the occupy movement starts with a premise that we all owe them everything. they take over a public park they didn't pay for to go nearby to use bathrooms they didn't pay for, to beg from food to places they don't want to pay for, to obstruct those to go to work to pay the taxes to sustain the bathrooms and to sustain the park so they can self-righteously explain that they're the paragons of virtue to which we owe everything.
now, that is a pretty good symptom of how much the left has collapsed as a moral system in this country and why you need to reassert something as simple as saying to them go get a job right after you take a bath. [ applause ] >> speaking of taking baths, i know a great place to take a bath the w hotel. if you don't know the w hotel around the country we have quite a few in new york city lavish establishments. >> front page of the most. occupy wall suite. w hotel suite where it turns out one of the leaders of the occupy wreath movement down there and other leaders of the occupy wreath movement staying in $700 a night suite at the w hotel getting nice showers. >> who can blame them? would you rather stay at the w hotel or it a tent with no running water? the point is, i think, there real solid a cross section of people who are involved in this movement. he is one of the guys who
manages the money, interestingly. so they have gotten $500,000 worth of donations. he manages the money. there is no suggestion that is he misusing the funds. he says he is paying for this himself. the point is that some people are wealthy who are involved in the protest. >> no question. >> some people are wildly wealthy like nancy pelosi who support the protesters. it's a cross section. >> i love the pictures of them. jump online to the post. because it shows this gentleman leaving the hotel with a mug of coffee with the logo on the side of it. >> peter dutro the one that organized the finance committee. wall street, the one in new york here, is fairly well organized, better organized than the other occupies around the country. >> on the night they cleaned out the park. this guy says i'm not going to my apartment in brooklyn i'm going to w. this guy is 24 years old. brad spitzer in new york city on a business trip. he works for deloit they made $30 billion last year.
>> yeah i'm in finance but i still support their causes. >> interesting. interesting to see all the different people who on some level support them and believe in them though, again, not the tactics because he didn't want to sleep the in tents and stay on the city streets. >> can i give you an example how expensive it is to stay at w hotel. a bottle of glen levit scotch is $55. >> a bottle of it. >> this big. >> same bottle at the w is $375. that's a steal. >> you sound like you are experienced. you made that mistake in room service. >> mike made the mistake on a bill one night. did i just order that? more on that coming up and mike's dinner bill. >> let's get to your evidence lines and tell you what you are about to see. look at live pictures of tahrir square in cairo, egypt where demonstrators has been protesting for two days now. they returned to the square
last night just one day after government forces kicked them out. several hundred people reportedly spent the night there despite police attempts to drive them out. this comes after a second day of clashes that ended with 200 people reportedly hurt. the military clashed with thousands of protesters. rocks were hurled at police in riot gear who responded with tear gas. witnesses say several protesters were beaten. crews in reno nevada working to extinguish devastated wildfire. forced 10,000 people to seek refuge at local shelters. the fire being blamed for the death of a 74-year-old man. right now crews are reporting about 80% containment. they hope to have the fire completely put out, they say, by the middle of the week. call at it the kramer effect. the simple act of walking into a room can make you forget what you were doing.

>> >> "fox news sunday" we are talking about really really good. >> of course it is. >> once again the 11th hour for the super committee. still seems unlikely they are close to striking a deal. >> chris wallace joins us live now. hi chris. >> hey, guys. >> what are the chances that they are going to reach a deal today? >> well, it doesn't look good. but we're going to talk to two of the key members of the committee, the republic co-chair, jebb hensarling of texas and one of the democratic members javier be sara. they have not had a formal meeting of this committee and i just read this, since november 1st. so if you are not talking. now, you could have serious talks behind the scenes. it just seems like the basic division that we saw last
summer with the debt ceiling debate, you know, the republics want it to be overwhelmingly spending cuts. and don't want to see a sizeable increase in taxes on the wealthy. and the democrats are resistant to serious entitlement reform. that division still is there and it looks like the super committee is going to not be so gliewrp what do you make about the argument we had march tease on the show a little while ago he says he believes it's hard for him not to believe that the democrats would want had this to fail. heard that argument from paul krugman this week this would be the best thing for democrats to have this fail. what do you make of that. >> i don't agree with that. let's take president obama. i think for president obama it would have been a tremendous plus. i think actually for everybody it would have been a tremendous plus for this thing to succeed. i know the narrative is well, obama is campaigning against a do-nothing congress. let's say they had made a deal. let's say they made a big deal, $4 trillion.
sizeable tax increases but really significant entitlement reform, basically what the president walked away from with the deficit commission back last december. the bowls simpson commission i think that would have been a huge financial plus, an economic plus. i think the markets would have soared. i think the approval rating would have gone way up for both congress and the white house, which are in the tank right now. >> i agree. >> i think that a success would have been a success for everybody. >> hey, chris. mike jarrett here. i know we have talked many times. we are emotional guys we cry a lot about our football teams and stuff like that. did you happen to see what happened in iowa last night at family forum? three of the candidates got so checked up they started talking about their personal lives a little bit. herman cain about his battle with cancer and the support of his wife. rick santorum about his daughter and health issues and then also newt with a friend who had health issues. did you see it? >> i did not see it. but i read about it.
and, you know, i'm not surprised. you know, it's good that there are different kinds of forums sms we have these fox debates where we are asking them what your presidency is on such and such an issue. this was obviously an opportunity for them to open up about more personal issues. it was a faith and family forum and they obviously are trying to appeal to those evangelize voters who make up a very large proportion of the republic voters in the g.o.p. caucus in iowa. interesting thing, mitt romney, the frontrunner in the overall race didn't show up. he has shown some concern. i think two things. first of all some concern about iowa because he spent $10 million there four years ago and finished second. and also i think he thinks i'm just not going to win the evangelical voters. others are. and it would have been a waste of time. it's interesting. he and jon huntsman were the only two candidates not to season show up. >> chris, is he getting a big endorsement though in new
hampshire, romney is, tell us about that and why is that important? >> kelly aot the new senator there it's important because she is one of the real bright lights in new hampshire. she hadn't endorsed anybody. she came out now. and it comes at an interesting time because according to the most recent poll, new hampshire let me just back up for a second. romney has a kind of strange position versus iowa. on the one hand i think he he is nervous about it on the other hand, i think he knows if i could go in there and i win and i won in new hampshire this race might be over in mid january. he has got to win new hampshire. that's always been his strong hold. of course he was the governor of four years in neighboring massachusetts. that's got to be the place where he does win and the latest poll shows him only 2 points ahead of newt gingrich. so obviously getting this particular endorsement at this moment is important for romney as he tries to shore up his support in new hampshire. >> chris, you are going to be talking about the super committee. you have two key lawmakers on
with you this morning. we will be watching "fox news sunday." check your local listings. great to see you. >> buy, guys. >> airlines now taking lines into their own hands and pushing the babies to the back of the plane. is this fair? we have that baby debate next. >> he has had it, huh?

>> welcome back, babies sit in the back of the plane. new rules airlines are implementing with parents traveling with small children. makes the fly experience better for everyone. some parents say it's not fair or even safe. joining us from a fair and balanced debate on this is mcdermott the founder of the web site has baby will fly.com. and blogger amman delker. ben, correct lie last name pronunciation. >> you got it just right on
the last try right there. >> fifth time is a charm. >> mandealter. >> you big airplane flying with a baby next to you. take a second look at this piece of video here. caused quite a bit of an uproar. you are recording this video for a nonstop flight baby crying next to you. a lot of people suffering from this. you put this up on your web site up on your blog and you got a lot of traffic. what were people saying to you? >> you know, it was mixed. i got a lot of people were in support of me who felt my frustration. i got a lot of people who felt like i was being unsympathetic and lacking compassion for a child uncomfortable. what people don't seem to realize it's not really about the baby or the toddler. they can't help it sometimes. it's real buy about the parents that do nothing about it on that flight the father spent four and a half hours
reading a book and the mom was doing a cross word puzzle. it was driving me absolutely crazy. >> corrine sometimes it's difficult to get a baby to stop crying. especially dealing with ear issues. they don't know that they can swallow and release so. pressure in their ears. very difficult in some pass cities. do you agree or disagree with the idea of putting the kids on the back of the plane. >> i mean it's one thing to say we're going to have a family friendly section of an aircraft where there is going to be special entertainment for children and there is going to be great snacks. but that's not what they're saying. essentially they are saying we want to lump all the families together for whatever reason and i think you just simply wouldn't say that about anyone other than children these days. you would never say we are going to lump all the arm rest hogs in one section of a. everyone has a story about a baby crying. everyone has a story about arm rest hog. a drunk obnoxious person on plane. let's lump them into one
section of the plane. >> make a good point here, age discrimination what is the difference between this or perhaps an elderly passenger that needs extra care and concern and may take a long time as other passengers are waiting to board the plane or the drunk passenger or somebody else? >> well, look, if you have got like an unruly drunk passenger, there are repercussions to that. they don't always get off scot-free. sometimes they are kicked off the plane. i'm not saying kick off the babies. but, you know, i think this is ultimately about respect and courtesy. fly something a stressful experience. people are on edge. and if you could create an environment where they are, perhaps, some baby free zones. areas where some of the passengers where babies are and people can have some peace and quiet. i think that would be better for the flight as a whole. >> ben as my co-host alisyn had pointed out doesn't matter where you are on the plane you still hear the crying babies. >> i don't know if that's necessarily as true. i mean, there is a lot of
actually white noise that happens. you would be amazed if a baby is separated by five or six or seven isles, it actually can make a huge difference. >> you have studied. this corrine, i will give you the final word on this. maybe creating a safe zone or area where the families can go and be away from everyone else. >> well, one of the reasons i created have baby will travel.com inspire and motivate and help people travel with babies toddlers and young children. some of that is being prepared. gone are the days of traveling light. getting there is no longer half the fun. traveling with children is, would. if you are prepared, you know you have everything on the ready for your child, for your baby, something to suck, something to eat, something to keep them busy, then everyone is going to be happy. i don't think the onus is on parents to be responsible for everyone's comfort and safety on an aircraft. my responsibility as a traveling parent is to my child. a great side effect of my child being happy and comfortable is that they are
quiet and engaged. that makes everybody happy on the plane. >> being prepared. i definitely agree with that. check out have baby will fly.com. >> will travel. >> also b side blog.com. the other side of the debate. the debate will continue online i'm sure. >> find me at clayton morris on twitter. continue that debate there plus, coming up, honoring her fallen fiance. one woman now completing his unfinished mission. we're going to share this incredible story. plus, harmless kids' television? >> have fun. >> hi, kids.

>> could children's tv shows be destroying your child's religion? our next guest says most kid's tv is like an atheist babysitter. the creator of veggie tales and new series buck denver he asks what's in the bible. hi, phil. >> hey, thanks for having me. >> our pleasure. so, listen, you say that kids tv is like having an atheist babysitter. is it really television's responsibility to teach our kids about religion? >> absolutely not. no. but if you go back 40 years or
so, there were only a couple of kids shows on in any given day. kids weren't watching that much tv. kidd kid's tv was like a friendly uncle telling you a story and leaving. now so much kids tv and watching so much that tv has moved. in it's like a thane. it's an atheist nanny and kids are spending so much time watching that parents, especially the 8 a% of americans that say they are christian and want to pass on christian faith to their kids need to be aware how much time kids are spending looking at a picture of the world that has no god, no church, no one ever prays. and they begin to believe that's the real world. >> sesame street would say it's not their goal to teach kids that religion. rather, they are trying to teach kids their abcs and how to counted from 1 to 10. >> absolutely. i'm not saying they need to start teaching religion. what i'm trying to say is parents need to be aware how little their kids will experience a view of the world with god in it by watching kids' television. they need to look for
alternatives. not necessarily sesame street's job but a parent's job to be aware that god has gone missing from their kid's tv diet. >> maybe the shows aren't focused on religion but a lot of kids' shows do talk about values. i think of the shows that my kids watch. kayu and the bernstein bears and always sort of a mortal tale nice to your neighbors and not bully other kids. isn't that good enough for what kids are watching? >> that helps. some kids it comes very naturally for them to be good kids. religious instruction is really what helps kids shape their character though. it's okay -- most kids in christian families they go to church on sunday morning and they will get an hour of a view of the world with requested to in it. the average 11-year-old in america is consuming eight hours a day of electronic media. they get an hour of church on sunday morning and then they get 56 hours of a view of the world.
350,000 churches in america. not one church on the disney channel. not one church on nickelodeon. getting a view of the world on tv that really isn't the real world. >> interesting. phil vischer you are the founder of veggie tallies. thanks for pointing that out to me. >> my pleasure. thanks for having me. >> sitting in confinement while mexican drug smuggler granted immunity. now want to know why he was imprisoned while doing his job. diaz's wife is going to join us next. plus, you may have to spend 2,000 extra dollars when you buy a car. that is the reported plan under president obama's new fuel efficiency program. is he fueling up an auto firestorm? ♪

working somewhere. the only ones that have seen him are my 2-year-old daughter and my 8 month old daughter. >> here is where i see maybe a problem. it seems to me he is in prison simply for doing his job. the trouble is when he he comes out he will be a convicted felon. you are border agent. you have a gun in the home. you have to use it for your job. how is that going to work because he can't be around guns? >> i don't know how we are going to do that because like you said i do have to have a weapon. and if he is ever in the vicinity of a weapon and we get pulled over or something happens, he will go back to prison. so we haven't gonna far as to what we are going to do. >> what you could do is get a presidential pardon. is that a possibility? >> that's what we need pretty much to be able to begin to fix what has happened to my family. i don't know if it's possible, but i would pray to god that it is. >> so, you have filled out and started that pardon process? i know you have to fill out
forms. you have started that? >> no. because the appeal is still going through. he has to complete at least 8 a% of his prison time. >> okay. i know a lot of congress people are trying to help you out here. including duncan hunter. has he been a big help for you? >> he has been god-sent. he is pretty much the voice for my husband right now. >> okay. and, by the way, some republic lawmakers wrote this letter to the white house, to the president. border patrol agents must be able to appropriately and effectively protect our nation's border without the threat of federal prosecution, hanging over their head. would you agree with that? of course you do, right? >> oh, he yes. definitely. >> okay. so how optimistic are you that things can be resolved and how can we help? >> i think just getting the word out to everyone about what has happened is a big help. as you can see. just by me being on tv a couple of times, congress has stepped up and i wish more
would step up to the plate. because it effects everyone it effects the people who are doing the job right now and those who have gone before my husband because there have been others. david science. there has been too many in the western district of texas. >> why do you think this is happening? real quickly, what happened to the drug smuggler. >> he got to go home that same day. he went home with the mexican consulate. he never saw five minutes in jail. >> my goodness. all right. we will keep track of this. keep us up to date, okay? thank you for joining us. >> i will. thank you. >> coming up on our program here the g.o.p. candidates tackle war and families last night and their answers may surprise you. especially when it comes to war. and first it was called t bowing. now fans are putting the name jesus on the back of their jersey. is that okay? father jonathan is here with his take on that. tebowing, after the break.

towards the ohio valley, and kind of a rough travel day and it is rain, not snow and that is good news and the rain moves towards the northeast, by tuesday night and into the day on wednesday, by 9:00, 10:00 a.m., and everybody across the east coast, dealing with rain and we'll talk about that, places like atlanta, the busiest hub in the world, delays and washington, d.c. and towards the new york city airport and, unfortunately, there is going to be troubles and by thursday it is gone and there will be cooler air behind it and if you are driving, to get to your family on thursday, you'll be looking a little better and today, a threat for severe weather, where you see green, maybe a few thunderstorms and the yellow area stretching into arkansas and parts of texas could be dealing with a tornado or two and hail and damaging winds. today, the highs: warm into texas, and that cold front right there will stall out and will be the firing line for storms, for around the next three days. all right, guys. >> alisyn: thanks, rick, all right, those of you waking up optimistic this morning, hoping that we'd be delivering some
news... >> clayton: alisyn is about to dash your hopes. >> alisyn: the super committee, coming to a grand compromise, we are sorry to dash your hopes. it doesn't look good. >> work will fill the time allotted, maybe not this time. >> clayton: and, they didn't -- learning from chris wallace, a short time ago, the super committee actually last met face-to-face, november 1st. >> sending e-mails back and forth. >> clayton: you get a lot of work done by e-mail but i don't think you can solve the nation's problems by e-mail and now, we know the deadline is quickly approaching on the 23rd and, most people say monday night was -- midnight was really the dead lined and looks like all signs pointing to a failure. here is senator jon kyl from committee. listen: >> it is pretty doubtful at this point, but, obviously, nobody wants to quit, until the stroke of midnight, as you can see by my presence. no matter what happens, congress has to reduce spending by $1.2 trillion, one way or another. it would be better if we could
reach an agreement on how to do it but, if we don't there is the sequester. >> remember the good old days you didn't have to read bills before signed them into law? now there is a law you have to. and, they need to get it done. >> clayton: and the law isn't even you have to read it. they have to have 48 hours in case want to read it. >> alisyn: right. and usually is a good idea, i think to read it. but here's what happens, if the super committee fails in their objectives to reach a compromise, the 1.2 trillion trigger, that you heard, john talk about the sequestration option, goes into effect and that means, that $492 billion are cut from the defense department and $123 billion, are cut out of entitlements. >> clayton: and here's more of what will happen, too, extension of the bush era tax cuts would not happen, those will expire. and those are set to expire anyway and they thought within the committee something might be addressed and, jobless, 99 weeks of jobless benefits would dry up and the credit downgrade,
another downgrade could come from the ratings agencies which threatened to do so, if the committee doesn't act. >> alisyn: basically, they think that we are incapable of solving problems, and reaching any compromise and reaching across the aisle, then they could downgrade, and they thought that the first time around. >> clayton: a lot of people say we could look like greece in four or five years as a result of this. >> no question, that is our future, folks. europe is the way they are dealing with things now, and the look of europe is us, in three or four years. >> clayton: it will be interesting to see, a little later now, asia future markets, to see how the market opens monday as a result of this. >> we have mitt romney in new hampshire, and john haunn hunts across the street on "saturday night live" last night and the candidates were around the roundtable in iowa, something called the family forum and were asked all sorts of question, health care to the personal issues, and, emotional moment and one topic they touched on was war. as the president, you are the
commander-in-chief in charge of the took place, and if you have to send our men and women overseas to a war, what is the barometer for you, basically is what the question was. >> as commander-in-chief, i will not send our young men and women into war unless it is clear why, the mission, and the definition of victory, and, thirdly, i would not send them into war, unless i would send my own son and daughter. >> i think it is a -- an utter tragedy of what is happening. bad economics and war is the two most destructive things to the family. >> send those young men and women with the equipment to win. don't let some congressman sitting in an air conditional office in washington, d.c. deciding what the rules of engagement are. let those war-fighters win the war.

night. no suggestion that he is using some of the money they've raised. they have raised $500,000 and he's head of finance but no suggestion he is misusing funds, he put it on his own credit card and some of the people there, obviously, are not just poor, sort of brifters, as they are sometimes depicted. he had money, and, he says he believes in their principles though he is in finance. but, wanted to stay at the "w" hotel. >> you can have a lot of money and be a believer in their cause. >> alisyn: look at nancy pelosi. >> michael moore. >> alisyn: some of the millionaires, who are believers in their cause and wouldn't you rather stay at the "w" hotel. >> clayton: the pictures are fun and he's walking out of the hoe kel and brad spitzer with a nice cup of fresh, hot coffee. drop the banner. here's the hotel coffee. it is a paradox, right? the idea of the 99 cents versus the 1%, staying at a $700 room, let us know what you think,

right now, 67,000 pages, all new, all new regulations, add costs the way we live every day and makes no sense, upside-down thinking and it is difficult and the 2,000 per car is this minimum and it will knock a lot of people off the bottom that would have bought a new car and will not be able to do it. >> i'll try and take the other side here. i want a car that gets twice as good gas mileage, congressman. >> sure. >> i want that. >> and you can buy that. and that is the beauty of the free market. we allow you to buy whatever you want. and, back in the old days, you can't regulate obesity by telling tailors they can only make small clothes and the same is true in the automobile business and some people need and want a bigger family, with big families and feel safer and smaller cars are find and for those who want to drive a smaller car, have at it. that is not the problem. the problem is, you have an administration that keeps telling us how to heat or homes and light or lights and what kind of cars we're going to drive and food we'll eat and this is not the way america

on these customized jerseys and there's a lot of names, and in fact don't like jesus christ. but, this is obviously a loophole the fans found, they don't want usama bin laden... >> usama bin laden on the back, jesus christ and don't want things that make football controversial. but, this is just people recognizing this is a man of deep faith, we love him, he works unbelievable miracles, so to speak on the field. and we like this guy. so i'm glad they are letting it. >> if there is seems to be a backlash, some people don't like him because he shows his faith so much. what is that about? i don't like you because you like jesus too much? night is true, he does it in a way that makes some people feel uncomfortable. so what? you know, so what? you know? and, everybody has different ways of expressing their faith and the guy is a great football player and might not be able to throw a pass... but... >> clayton: he manages to win,

that night. the late actress's sister, lana wood, spoke to fox news about the captain's claims. >> for him to have told me the things he did, put him in a horrible position, makes him look like a weakling, makes him look like a coward. and a lot of other things as well. why would someone purposely want to do that? >> alisyn: susan estrich, professor of law and political science and fox news contributor joins us now. good morning, susan. >> good morning. >> alisyn: natalie's sister, lana, was referring to there, she said the captain told her that robert wagner basically allowed natalie wood to drown. that he didn't want any help given to her, once she was in the water. and, also heard a very violent fight, can robert wagner be charged with something 30 years later, based just on this captain's new recollection? >> the short answer is no. i mean, it is very rare to ever
get a criminal charge 30 years after the fact. if you have body parts in the basement and dna evidence, you might stand a chance. but, this is sort of inexplicable logically. i mean, you have this captain, who a year ago now says i didn't tell the full story and i underwent hypnosis and now i have additional information. you know, it is hard not to believe that the sheriffs office is responding to the pub publicity and complaints that are going to come around the 30th anniversary and trying to show the public actually we did a good job but that is not really a reason to spend money on a new criminal investigation. >> clayton: right, i mean, resources going after this, now, some would argue, never has been solved and they should, others criticizing the sheriffs office for even reopening this thing, and, after all, you brought up the hypnosis therapy and this guy, the captain who was apparently drunk on the night, anyway, of her drowning, goes --
undergoes hypnosis therapy, and, suddenly recalls all of this information, do you think it was all a publicity stunt for a book? >> i don't know if it was a publicity stunt. i don't want to question his motives. people do far worse to sell books but the hard one to understand is why the sheriffs office which i have to say just last week lindsay lohan was sentenced to 30 days in jail, on her 6th jail term, and she was out in four-and-a-half hours and the same sheriffs office said, well, we can't do anything, we don't have money, the jails are crowded. now, if the jails are that crowded that you can't punish lindsay lohan for more than four-and-a-half hours, what are you doing, spending money, reopening an investigation which any criminal defense lawyer -- and i'm one -- could eat the guy for lunch on the stand. >> alisyn: good context, susan estrich, thanks for joining us. >> my pleasure, have a great day. >> clayton: coming up, her fiance gave the ultimate sacrifice for the country and she's honoring him, following in
