>> occupy protesters saying no again to the the mayor of philadelphia. the video coming in now to fox from the plaza where they're staging a sit-in just past city hall and deadlines to leave that location, we're monitoring the situation, i'm harris falkner, we're live as fox reports. up for grabs, no more. newt gingrich snags a coveted endorsement and delivering a blow to another republican front runner and gingrich not the only presidential candidate finding fresh support. fox reports developments from the campaign trail. a deadline about to expire and still no sign of michelle parker.
now, police take a bold step. >> and and it's like coming up to them and, fire extinguishers. >> tonight, why investigators now think there's a possible link between this home and what happened to the missing mom. and also. >> and it was me and him. >> ultimate choice, when a life or death showdown unfolds inside this man's home. >> fox news is america's election headquarters and tonight, a huge boost for republican presidential candidate newt gingrich. in what could be a major blow for top contender mitt romney, who still leads in most polls in the state of new hampshire, romney, former governor of massachusetts has very strong ties to that state and has a home there and where he announced his candidacy in june. gingrich now receiving the endorsement of the manchester
union leader though, it is a highly influential conservative newspaper in new hampshire and of course, that's where the nation's first primary election will be just six weeks from now. the support from newt gingrich coming as reports indicate another g.o.p. candidate will win a high profile endorsements of his own. our steve centanni live in the d.c. bureau, steve? >> and a spokesman told me this afternoon, it came for a good time for them just as a lot of people are beginning to pay serious attention for the g.o.p. primary and the gingrich campaign has been working hard in new hampshire and opening up with staff, contacting about a thousand voters every day and the publisher of the union leader told fox news earlier today, gingrich is the best candidate out there right now. >> and he was by far handled himself the best and he is he certainly not without flaws we've disagreed with him on
issues, but, it's the whole package, he's a forward thinker. >> and another g.o.p. candidate, john huntsman appeared today on fox news sunday and explains what he thinks is happening with the g.o.p. race. >> a month ago, for newt gingrich, to have been in the running to capture the manchester union leader endorsement would have been unthinkable so i think it reflects more than anything else the fluidity, the unpredictability of the race right now. >> immigration is shaping up to be in this race and newt gingrich is proposing to let some undocumented stay in the u.s. and the candidate rick perry was criticized for allowing the the tuition illegally. this coming tuesday in new hampshire, perry will appear alongside joe arpaio, a staunch opponent of illegal immigration, and all amid arpaio will endorse the texas
governor at a time when his support generally slipping, harris. >> steve centanni, thank you very much. >> harris: let's turn now to pakistan where outrage is growing after that deadly air strike blamed on n.a.t.o. forces. demonstrators now gathering outside the u.s. consulate in karachi today shouting anti-american slogans and burning an effigy of president obama and holding a banner to protest what they say was an unprovoked air strike in pakistan. 24 soldiers killed in that and n.a.t.o. says it's investigating, likely coalition forces did cause those casualties. a lot of reaction coming now from washington. our peter doocy has more from our d.c. pure owe. >> the communication with pakistan are closed, which means we cannot get supplies into afghanistan at two important border crossings right now and if we cannot reestablish contact with pakistan soon, trucks might line up at the border making them easy targets for
insurgents and a general told this is the terrorist safe haven and terrorists shoot at pakistanis and coalition forces and this kind of communications breakdown hurts us and helps them. >> the vital areas and dangerous area and anything that leads to complications or lack of communication in this part of the world, certainly one side and-- >> in the wake of this incident, pakistan told us to get out of a base near the border that we've been using to watch drones against al-qaeda in the the region, and their overall reaction has some in congress wondering once again, if we should write islam abad such big checks. >> it's not the kind ever situation where you can just cut off all assistance. while for many people to say we throw the pakistanis over the side and stop giving thm aid and the rest of it, as long as that country has
nuclear weapons that could fall in the hands of radicals and be a threat worldwide they've got incredible leverage. in a joint statement last night, secretary of state hillary clinton and secretary of defense leon panetta offered condolences to the pakistanis killed, but things are tense between the two countries right now. >> harris: peter thank you. they are home, three american college students arrested during violent protesting in egypt. 19-year-old derrick sweeney returning to a very grateful family in missouri after a tearful reunion and he opened up about his detainment. >> that first evening was probably the most scary thing, it was the most frightening thing in my life and they said they're going to shoot us. so we moved and, and we spent about six hours that first night and nearly the fetal position sort of with our hands behind our back, it was dark and they were behind us and it was very scary.
>> harris: wow, could you see the mom's face as he was telling the story, it was amazing. the other student he was with, they arrived home. here is porter to philadelphia yesterday afternoon. remember on the fox report we showed you as he was arriving, all three arrested for allegedly throwing molotov cocktails at security forces during violent demonstrations two weeks ago, meanwhile, the nationwide elections at the heart of those protests going ahead as planned and military rulers urging people to the polls despite the chaos in the streets. our greg palkot with the latest. >> you've been in cairo since the beginning of the uprising some eight months ago and this is what he they went through a revolution for, the elections coming tomorrow. what are things looking like on this eve? >> well, exactly all comes down to this, harris, and behind me, in tahrir square, it's cold, it's wet, it's late
and people are still out there. they think that their revolution was started with the toppling of former egyptian president hosni mubarak and slowed by military officials and had the jobs of running the company tell rarely and despite the elections that are coming tomorrow. they're still demanding that these military officials go. here is a little bit of what they told me earlier today. >> and it's ten months didn't check, now. >> like we haven't done anything except only ahead of the regime. >> why, what do you want to happen? >> want (inaudible) >> despite all of this, a military officials are showing no signs of leaving and in contrast to what i saw, ten months ago, broad-based public support for these people is diminished and people are upset about the lengthy protests and upset about the
deadly violence that occurred here in the past week, harris. >> harris: so we're hearing from them on what they want. what can we expect from the vote tomorrow. >> well, what we can expect is a tense scene, fear of violence and acts at the polling station is a concern and security very high. army and police will be at the very polling stations and we can also, harris, expect a confusing scene, a lot of parties, a lot of candidates and incredibly complicated system that could take literally months for the voters to come up with a new parliament, a new government, a big to make a good gain in all of this, and the parties because they're well-organized, they can get out the vote. but in fact, support and turnout for the whole election could be high, despite the complications, despite the difficulties and despite the dangers which we have personally seen here on the ground, folks here think look
like they might want to try the democracy thing. back to you. >> harris: all right. greg palkot, thank you very much. reports after bombshell admission, and it comes with an elite college sports program still reeling from allegations of child sex abuse. another accuser coming forward in the scandal and police take drastic action in a desperate effort to find this missing mom. where they sent the s.w.a.t. teams and dogs in search for clues. will it bring her home? e wrapg a gift needs. wait a minute...i...

the news room. >> reporter: that's right, police aren't saying what led them to to search the home or if they're questioning anyone, but we just got video of the raid and apparently, it was taken on a cell phone, this is amateur video and shaky and unedited. according to neighbors who shot the video and saw it go down. dale, sr. was led out in handcuffs and 10 to 16 detectives showed up. knocked on the door and led dale, sr. out although was not arrested. police aren't commenting whether any clues were found inside that home. michelle parker's parents are offering a $50,000 reward for any information leading to their daughter. but in an unusual twist, the reward is good only until today so it will soon expire. her mother had want add tile limit on the reward money to encourage people with tips to come forward immediately since

. >> two deadly plane crashes this holiday weekend. a small plane going into the ground while trying to make an emergency landing in georgia near the alabama border a husband and wife in their 350's killed. 24-year-old son suffered serious burns on most ever his body. in another plane crash, four people were killed in northern illinois. the coroner's office does not expect to identify the bodies until tomorrow. and occupy wall street protesters told to go. and we're now a couple hours and 23 minutes beyond their deadline and as you can see they're not moving. this is the site in philadelphia, the city's mayor set a deadline of 5 p.m. eastern for them to take their tents down and all their camping gear home and some have done so and others promise to remain saying the importance of their message
outways plans to renovate the plaza where this is. about 50 protesters staging a sit in and police taking no action against them and just waving the situation though, saying for now, it's painful. and on the other side of the country, a question of will they stay or go? a deadline there only hours away for occupy wall street protesters to pick up tear camping stuff and leave city hall park in los angeles and we were watching this last night and remember, they had a deadline a couple of days ago. and it was set in california where the mayor is said to have all weekend to get out. deadline, midnight, monday. and for the park to be completely cleared out. today, most of the roughly 500 tents set up on the grass are still there and most people saying they will stay, sending a good part of the day learning how to stay safe in the face of rubber bullets, tear gas and pep spray and police say not said how they expect to meet with
resistance, but the chief saying they'll probably have to make arrests. and in washington state, occupy revenge. and the windows of the bank smashed in and revenge for occupy oakland spray painted on the building. the protests in the california port city got violent back in october and a lot of people arrested there and major damage was done to the building and police are not sure how this incident was actually revenge for what happened in oakland and the damage was about $10,000. the driving force behind the occupy wall street movement as you know, what they call corporate greed and economic inequality. and what will happen if the wealthiest americans were taxed more. remember the buffet rule, calling for a new minimum tax rate on millionaires, it's name a reference to billionaire warren buffett. in california a plan like the buffet rule is now in place. oh, from what we know, how
very well. william la jeunesse on the story for us in los angeles. tell us about it. >> reporter: harris, right now, 51% of u.s. households pay zero income tax compared to the top 1% which pays 40% of all federal income tax. and yet senate democrats want more and proposing taxing investment income, money made on stocks, the same as ordinary income, but california already has the so-called buffet rule and it's a bugetary nightmare. state revenues dramatically rising and falling with the markets. >> it is true that capital gains income is much more volatile, it goes up and down a lot faster than ordinary income. but it's not hard to forecast that, now where the markets are, you pretty much have a sense of realization. >> well, california more than any other state depends on the rich, those earnings 5 million dollars pay almost 10% of their income state taxes. 1 million, 8.4, versus those
making less and majority earnings under 50,000 pay nothing. as a result in 2007, 1% of the people paid almost 50% of allstate income taxes. and the top 10%, about 79%, the top 20% 90%, compared to 6 million californians who made nothing and another 4 million who paid less than 1%. so 143,000 super rich, less than 1/2 of 1% of the state population actually pays 42% of allstate income taxes, but when the market tanked, state income tax revenue fell by 25%. and tolt, that le-- volatility that left california broke. >> california illustrates what can go wrong. in california the tax rate on capital gains is the same as ordinary income tax rate and that's a very high rate and that means that the tax revenue of the state
government is highly sensitive to the amount of capital gains people have. >> and so the lesson here, founding, or, sounds good, but when the market dries up, so does the money leaving programs and officials, harris with painful cuts. >> perhaps, a constitutionry tail there, william la jeunesse thank you very much. and we start for decades as a police officer and when thieves broke into his home, he had no choice, but to take the law into his own hands and plus, the record breaking holiday shopping season bringing a new round of great deals. just hours from now, we'll tell you about it. and the right to bear arms, with santa. the perfect christmas cards face some second amendment supporters. that's coming up. so i was the guy who was never going to have the heart attack.

n.a.t.o. calling it a tragic, unintended incident and the troops killed in the air strike were buried today. we first told you on the fox report last night and now it's official, the arab league approving tough new sanctions against syria, to pressure president al-assad to end a bloody eight month crackdown on his own citizens. syria firing back quickly, calling the move a betrayal of arab solidarity. >> it's unlikely the sanctions are going to do much. in reality they're much more like a few stern words in the arab league rather than a slap on the wrist for a regime that killed more than 3500 of its own citizens sum mri for asking for democracy, but it's important to note that rather than the west imposing the sanctions, its members of the arab community. in response, to the merciless violence other arab nations
will no longer deal with syria's central banks and it turns off the flow of money from arab government to projects inside syria and the assad's government went on the offensive immediately criticizing the arab league and changing the track particulars, cities, mass roundup and torture and indiscriminate killing of civil yujs. the syrian protests began in march and the regime has been able to stay in power and it's increasingly isolated around the world. what started as massive street protests demanding the president's resignation morphed and while assad department enough control to prevent is civil war this weekend there's been horrific violence however the international community continues to treat syria with kid gloves, refusing to even
discuss the type of military response they used in libya. the u.s. and european union had issued tougher sanctions, but those are unlikely to tighten the noose on assad and plus, iran and russia are powerful syrian allies and makes it very difficult for any kind of meaningful sanctions or military action that could actually help those on the ground, demanding a better life. and leland vittert, fox news. >> and hours from now, cyber monday gets underway, it's the monday that follows thanksgiving and of course, black friday when a lot of discounts can be found online and anyone who missed out on a good deal on friday can try to snag one tomorrow on the web. so far if you may know the holiday shopping season is getting off to a record breaking start. people are spending their money. what are the numbers exactly and what can we expect to see. and host of bulls and bears has more.
>> the early bird this thanksgiving, and black friday, started on thursday was no turkey, that's for sure. and shopper lining up for deals, spent a total record of 52 billion bucks. the national retail federation survey out with the numbers today say that foot traffic and money spent online and in stores, hit historic highs and the record 226 million shoppers over the weekend. that's up from 212 million last year, and the average holiday shopper dug deep to spend more than last year, too. and 398 and change versus 365 and change. and deals online were up, too. and bargain buyers did all of this earlier than ever. and getting a head start on black friday, nearly a quarter of the stores by midnight, either waiting for stores to open or heading into those with doors already open and compare that to the 3% in 2009 who did so. and what's all this mean for tomorrow, cyber monday?
the big day for online holiday shopping, one clue, this is the first time the nrs survey asked shoppers if they used smart phones and tablets over the weekend, they certainly did. more than half said they had or will turn to their december toss help them find prices or buy things black friday weekend and that's some sign, cyber monday will be a big one or a sign that it could be a big bust. there is fear that all early black friday did was move a lot of buying earlier in the season, rather than signal a season during high unemployment and low confidence that will put the happy back in the holiday for retailers. we'll know a lot more when we get numbers for tomorrow. harris, back to you. >> harris: all right. brenda. in other words, tuesday the news is coming. thank you. a fiery crash, when a suspected drunk driver smashes his car into a home, landing in their living room. it is our top story as we go across america.
