"fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ ♪ >>steve: it started out as such a nice story. dennis rodman to the rescue. then you had to throw in the thing about the girlfriend. >>brian: you would think he's going to go over there and use his -- >>anna: basketball diplomacy. >>brian: he seems to look up to dennis rod man but he's not going to do that. he says i'm going over there to play basketball because we don't have enough hardwood here. >>steve: we don't? >>brian: we don't.
we're going to be telling you about that. also the latest on the syrian development. a lot happened yesterday. a lot will be happening today as we build up to stphepb 9 -- september 9. kwoeupl -- >>anna: a lightening storm in miami left two men injured. it is o it is not clear if they were directly struck by lightning or hit by a tractor-trailer. a plane forced to make an emergency landing. the plane was heading from north carolina. >> all of a sudden i heard a boom. i saw flashes out the window. people were saying it is a

she tried again in 2010, 2011 and 2012. dennis rodman landing in north korea for his second trip there this year. here's the new video of him in china on his way to north korea. rodman says it is just a friendly visit to see kim jong un and not an attempt to get the jailed american kenneth bay free. u.s. officials criticized the trip but rod man said basketball diplomacy could warm relations between kim jong un and president obama. those are your headlines. i don't think we're going to see president obama and kim jong un playing basketball. >>steve: fox news alert. key members of the senate are going to make their case to congress hoping to win support to take military action in syria. i should have said key members of the president's cabinet. this as we learn the president may be sending new arms to the rebels.
kelly wright is live with the latest from our nation's capital. >> president obama continues to push for getting support from members of congress to give authorization for u.s. military strike against syria. the president is relying on two leading republican senators: lindsey graham and john mccain to help him persuade other congressional members to approve his plan for a punitive strike. but the senators want president obama to knock down assad's airplanes and armed *f -- and arm syrian rebels with more weapons. fox news is learning there is no true definition of what the president's definition of advanced weaponry is. >> bringing the military capability of the opposition. you're upgrading their political cohesion and giving regional force behind the opposition. these three things together would work. if the goal of this is to put it in my happen, i
welcome a discussion about what we should do. giving arms and equipment to the resistance which has been shameful while huge amounts of arms have flown in from russia and iran and now thousands of hezbollah on the ground from lebanon. >> president obama is convinced the syrian regime is responsing out a chemical attack on its own people killing more than 1,400 people. the president who said last year a chemical attack would be a red line that would provoke america to intervene in the syrian crisis says he wants to take action but stunned the world when he said he would first seek authorization from congress. now he must convince even members of his own party to stand with him. but democrats so far are not entirely convinced. >> i don't think many of our constituents understand the full significance of
chemical and biological warfare. that's something that the president has got to spend some time explaining the significance of that. >> later today, as you mentioned, the senate foreign relations committee will be holding a public hearing onñi syria. secretary of state john kerry, defense secretary chuck hagel and joint chiefs chairman general martin dempsey will make the case for the obama administration for carrying out a punitive strike against syria. but senator mccain and senator graham, they're pushing for a plan that will lead to ending the assadñi regime. >>steve: if the president is goingçó to make a personal pitch, he's got to hurry because he's going to hop on board air force one later on today to go to sweden a%l then russia and the g-20. >>brian: among the people who say he's got to make açó personal push, not through secretary of state kerry, not through secretary of defense hagel, not through susan rice.
it's got to be himself. it's robert gibbs who said the president has got to make his case. the president has a way of making his case if you ask mitt romney that, if you ask john mccain that. he goes to syracuse and goes to buffalo. he says i've got a great idea how toçóçó redo theñiñi financing of college loans and college financing and keeping the cost of college under lock and key. he's persuasive when he does that. he takes his jacket off, puts it over his shoulder and tells everyone what to think. the question is, is he playing politics by going to congress? david axle rod says i'm telling you aoeupt toxd go but i'm -- i'm telling you i want to go but it's got to go to congress. it looks as if the president turned the tables on republicans. either you think it's a national security interest and our own interest to stop what's happening in syria and stop the useúo] chemical weapons or you don't. republicans should not óju into it especially
when you see how many democrats are not on board with this yet. >>anna: another big question is why is the president turning to congress now when it seemed like he was going to go ahead and do this himself. does he have a newfound respect for the constitution and federalist papers and all of that? >>steve: good one. >>anna: i think not. at least a lot of pundits says this is not the president opening up the history books. this is playing politics with it. >> respect for the separation of powers is rather minimum as he showed with suspension of provisions of health care, the creation of the dream act and won executive fiat by suspending half of the immigration laws. this isn't a sudden stroke of constitutionalism. this is simply expediency and delay. the problem is not that strategy. he doesn't have a strategy. and that's the reason everybody, left, right and center, has no idea what he's doing.
he's zigzagged left and right. he telegraphs he's going to strike. he does nothing. he calls in to congress. then he plays golf when the secretary of state had given a speech the day before with remarkable urgency and passion. >>steve: we hate to think that the president of the united states is making decision that will put americans in harm's wayq based onñi politics, but he has treated syria as a political problem all along. there are other development. the united states kicked britishñi intelligence out of the syriañr discussion because the english, the british are not going to be in on the deal. we've kicked them out when it comes to secret meetings. >>brian: we're concerned egy and#]&c@ incredible. just because parliament voted it down doesn't mean they'reñi not trustworthy. we're going to be in the same boat with france. david cameron went to parl lamont so !e said i'll go to my people too and play thisçó democracy thing. will franceçó be kicked out
of the coalition? depending on how our congress votes. >>brian: did you go to marines.com. >>anna: syrian rebels hacked into the marines website displaying a pro-assad message. this is a sign of the times that we're having to battle allñr this technology type of problems as well. they srg also claiming they were responsible for what happened with the "new york times"ñi websiteñai being hacked. >>brian:ñi a diplomat was asked by hillary clinton to broker things in syria when the civil war broke out. he saw what the president did, kicking it to congress and talk about the policy and limited response. he calls this the president's weekend strategy strategically appalling stpherpls his response. -- in terms of hisñi response. strategically appalling. >>steve: president assad thinks it is appalling that the united states would go after him. and in fact now he has
mocked our president when he refers to his historic american retreat with the president going to congress. now mr. assad warns of uncontrollable war if we dr something over there. also posturing is very expensive, the cost of the pentagon waiting is to the tune of millions and millions of dollars. money while, let's have açó little flashback here. want to take you back to 2009,q 2010, 2011. john kerry, who isçó currently the secretary ofñi mr. assad asñiçó hitler and saddamçó hussein. as it turnsçó out, just a couple of years ago they were dinner buddies. >>anna: wining and dining. we've got a photo of the two of them together. this is from 2009. apparently a few months later kerry wanted to go back and it was nixed by the obama administration and france saying it would
show some signñi of western weakness there as, you know, pre-iranian forcesñi are trying to gain -- >>steve: that particular picture is in añi restaurant heinzñr kerry, john kerry and mr. and mr. assad. >>brian: he says he is an agent for change. when nancy pelosi said no to president bush, when president bushbu(r" don't go there in 2007,ñi we've isolated syria, they do not deserve high level diplomatic relations she defied and said they are going to be an agent for peace. that was proifphetic. i don't thinkñi so. >>anna: that is why so many died. >>brian: ourñi coverage of the syria crisis continues. up next general jack keane on exactly how the president's delay will onlyñi

had expected. that the focus of it will be not just on deterring the use of chemical weapons but degrading assad's military capacity level. and i think many of us certainly have an advocacy for that. they will concentrate on chemical weapons delivery systems, rockets and artillery will be harder to get to because you can move those around and obviously he's doing that. airfields, airplanes and logistical infrastructure that supports air power will be much easier to get to. then the other thing, it's going to be complemented by an upgrade in support for the moderate opposition forces, training, assistance, funding and some arms.ñi yet undefined what they mean by arms. but i think overall that'sçó somewhat encouraging because that moves the momentum then towards the opposition forces. >>brian: you've done a lot of work, as much as anyone i know about who are these so-called rebels. what are txer factions andñr what numbers they are. z mójjt
bei they are screaming allah akbar. we've seen this movie before. we don't like the way it ends. >> it could end that way particularly if we do nothing. if we wring our hand and say oh my god, syria is going to become jihaddist or an islamist state. there are moderate opposition forces which is the largest group, opposition force in syria, they are spearheading the attack. the jihaddists are geographically separated from them. this moderate group received arms from saudi for six to eight months and none of those weapons have fallen into the hands of the jihaddists. the jihaddists are becoming quite territorial and not involved in the fighting as much and imposing talibanism on the syrian people who are resenting it very much, demonstrating against it. similar to what we saw in anbar province in iraq. >>brian: you were so concerned last week about
the fact that we're putting this off until september 9. do you believe that general dempsey was being sincere or political when he said our targets are not time sensitive, we can wait? >> i'm sure he's being sincere. i'm not going to question his veracity here. but the fact of the matter here is the great strategist said break your point's will. when you -- break your opponent's will. when you delay the attack for a week you've given a victory to assad. i think this attack should have been over a week ago. secondly, you obviously giveñi him an opportunity toñ protect his resources, particularly the thing heñ+w can move around, command and control facilities he can emptyçó out.ñi itt()qj it more -with it.g for us to deal >>brian: general, weçó appreciate the work you do. thanks soçó much. >> take care, brian. have a goodñr day.[0b&c @3 >>brian:aa>q' minutes

screaming. we've got an image of connor where it looks like he's almost happy. if you could explain this to us, ryan. he seemed to be excited that he was bit by a shark. >> yeah. it was a really interesting reaction that he had. the shark came up, it had bit him, then it swam pastñi him. i thought it was a relatively large shark. and i thought we've got to get him out of the water. we started to run in. when we got on the beach, he noticed he had been bit. he started yelling "i got bit by a shark." it was crazy. >>anna: and he's got battle wounds to prove it. today is your first day of school. what are you khaoeuted about showing -- excited about showing off to the classroom? >> well, justñi showing it to people. >>anna: you had to get nine stitches, i understand. are you going to be going swimming any time soon? >> yeah. >> he said he's only going to go swimming in a pool.
>>steve: i don't blame you. rwr', what would you say the moral of this story is now that you've had a couple of days to think about handing your son essentially bait for a shark? >> well, you know, when you're out cast netting, there's a lot of bait around. you probably don't want to hand the bait to your son. >>steve: although what a story he's got to tell today on his first dayçó of first grade. gentlemen, thank you very much and we're glad it all worked out so well. it could have been a lot worse. >>anna: have a great day. 27 minutes after the hour. coming up on "fox &çó friends," stocks are soaring on word of the president's delayed decision on syria. how long will it last? stuart varney is on deck. >>steve: kanye west just got a giant payday from a brutal dictator. we're talking about three million bucks. first happy birth to actor charlie sheen. he is 48. ♪ ♪

future. we are projecting an image of weakness and investors don't like that because it means uncertainty for the future. now we're looking at a gain of maybe 80 points for the dow jones industrial. and the price of oil which a lot of were expecting to come straight down with the news of the delay is not happening. we're down 60 cents a barrel at 107 dollars a barrel. >>anna: you mentioned the uncertainty is what's causing this. what happens once congress comes back, they debate and a decision is made? >> i really don't know. nobody knows. are we going to strike? yes or no? don't know. what kind of strike is it going to be? don't know. but this vacillation projects weakness and your enemies can be expected to exploit that weakness. that is what got the markets on edge this morning. >>steve: stuart, if we could put the map up it shows how oil gets to us from various places and you've got various
suppliers. apparently what the syrians revealed -- and it is in the "wall street journal" this morning -- is that as soon as we strike them, andñr 99% of the world thinks we're going to do that -- the first thing they're going to do is retaliate against war ships in the mediterranean and that could impact the flow of oil. >> so could retaliation against the pipelines which move that oil. pipelines are vulnerable. you attack a pipeline and you shut down a hundred thousand barrels of oil a day, maybe less. >>steve: you think the price of gas is high right now, wait until there's something going on over there. >> the price is $3.60 nationwide. if there was añr strike, you can expect the price to go up. at the moment the markets are very, very nervous because they don't know what's going to happen and they're worried about
america projecting weakness. >>brian: they are reassured to know varney and company will put it in perspective at 9:20. >> that's what we offer, brian. reassurance. hand holding nationwide is what we do. >>anna: stuart, thank you. 37 minutes after the hour. news headlines. a new report revealing hospital infections are onñiñi the rise and costing billions. that's according to a new study. it'sñr estimated one out of 20ñr patients will develop akiç' infection andñr researchers say the cost to treat them is nearly $10ñi billion a0@%yea. >>brian:#dm legendary actor cheated death two weeks ago when his car burst into flames on a los angeles freeway but that is not stopping dick vandyke from performing over the weekend. watch. ♪ ♪ñi >>brian: that is amazing.

for it and they went ahead with mammograms. with men when they said no p.s.a.'s, everybody said okay. sound good to me. it's important to remind men out there that this is a preventibleñi disease. 30,000 men die every year from this. absolutely not necessary. get tested. get screened. if there are issues, we're available to give a second or third opinion. >>brian: you don't have to separate between men's issues and women's issues, what's more important and more expensive. you're stating a fact. >> 70% of health care decisions are made by women. that is a compliment to them. they'reçó involved. they follow through, they do the research and want the best for their health. we want the same for men. that's the purpose of last week's segment. >>brian: how many surgeries today? >> today i'm seeing patients. tomorrow i have five. >>brian: what a schedule. 12 minutes before the top of the hour.

>> anna: if lawmakers vote against intervention in syria, does he have the authority to go forward alone? let's ask our fox news senior judicial analyst, judge andrew napolitano. great to be with you. >> good morning. >> anna: this actually is something that could happen for 90 days, you say? >> let's take a step back. it's a little mystifying legally why the president is asking congress for authority to do something that it has already given him authority to do. when the war powers act was enacted, a federal statute elected over president nixon's veto, it said the president can bring troops into any area that he wants, offensively or defensively, without the approval of congress for 89 days. he has to bring them back on the 90th day. the president has the authority to do this. is the war constitutional? if congress says we'll let the president declare mini war, he
can declare all the wars he wants and fight all the wars he wants, as long as they don't exceed 90 days, is that constitutional? >> anna: has it been used before? >> yes, by every president since richard nixon. nixon vetoed it because he thought it restrained his power. >> steve: obama has used it. >> they all used it. so again, mystifying as to why the president wants the approval of the congress. >> steve: oh, come on! it is not mystifying. it's not a legal question. it's political. he has treated syria as a political hot potato ever since he was running for president and now in case anything goes haywire, he wants to say look, congress said it's okay. >> he will have some problems in international law. >> steve: of course. >> but there is no international court before which to drag him for doing this. he will have a very difficult time making the case that in order to preserve the national security of the us us of america, he has to bomb syria
bus if that is the argument he's going to make, how can he be sitting on his hands? how can this be an issue of national security and he's doing nothing about it? >> steve: sure. if it's so bad y is he golfing? >> precisely. >> i don't think he wants to answer these questions, steve. >> anna: say he did go forward with p without the united nations, without great britain, parliament, without congress -- >> no, and he does it anyway. >> anna: so say that happens, then can a court step in in time to even do something before a missile ever goes? >> probably not. i'll tell you why. the courts just do not like to enjoin presidents when it comes to august the military. their view is this is a political question. this is a decision made by the other two branches of the government. congress said no, the president said yes. it's for the people to referee this. not for us. also as a practical matter, the president can have the triggers pulled a lot faster than justice can resolve these cases. >> steve: yeah. for folks watching right now, if
they're thinking, okay, president obama, who taught constitutional law is worried about the constitution. constitution may have been bent in such a fashion, he could legally go ahead alone? >> he can. i don't think he's concerned about the constitution. i think he's concerned about domestic politics at home. i'm repeating myself. >> steve: which would be shocking. >> no, it wouldn't at all. >> steve: i know. thank you very much. >> anna: 56 minutes after the hour. coming up, 40,000 workers cutting ties with the biggest union in the country. the reason why? because obamacare just isn't liberal enough? >> steve: they're members of a union of the and take a look at this beast, the gator was so heavy, it took nearly five hours to bring him in. oh, boy. that guy's got quite story to tell good job!

president obama. a massive catch in mississippi. a team of alligator hunters reeling in this 727-pound gator over the weekend. the hunters struggled with the record breaker for more than four hours before pulling him to a sandbar for help. hours earlier, another team caught a 723-pounder. it took five hours to grab that guy. and both broke records for the largest gators ever caught in the state. >> steve: tastes like chicken. rubbery chicken. >> brian: you take the first bite. all right. meanwhile, fox news alert. new video overnight showing syrian rebels reportedly shooting down a government jet. listen. (yelling). >> allah akbar! >> brian: great. fighting continuing to escalate on the ground in syria.
we haven't armed the rebels yet, but word is from a mccain-graham meeting, the president plans on boosting aid there rapidly. kelly wright has the developing details. the "wall street journal" writes even though the president pledged to do this earlier, he hasn't given them a gun yet, but that will change. >> brian, that's supposedly going to change, according to an agreement that the president has made with senators lindsey graham and john mccain. president obama continued to push for -- pushing rather, for getting support from members of congress to give authorization for a u.s. military strike against syria. that video that you were just showing, by the way, shows how the conflict on the ground continues, supposedly free syrian army fighters were celebrating, taking down a syrian air force jet on monday. that video, which has not been independent confirmed by fox news, was obtained apparently from a social media web site. meantime, getting back to the president, he is relying on the two leading republican senators, lindsey graham and john mccain, to help him persuade other
congressional members to approve his plan for a punitive strike against syria. but the senators want presidentt obama to knock down assad's airplanes and arm syrian rebels with more advanced weapons. >> the fact is that we have not given the arms and equipment to the resistance, which has been shameful, while huge amounts of arms have flown in from russia and iran and now thousands of hezbollah on the ground from lebanon. >> president obama is convinced syrian regime is responsible for carrying out a chemical attack on its own people, killing more than 1400 people. senator lindsey graham says arming the moderate syrian resistance forces will strengthen the president's plan. >> you're upgrading the military capability of the opposition. you're upgrading their political cohesion, and you're getting a regional force behind the opposition. these three things together
would work, but if the goal of this is to put it in my lap, i welcome a discussion about what we should do. >> senator lindsey graham there. later today, the senate foreign relations committee will hold a public hearing on syria. secretary of state john kerry, defense secretary chuck hagel and joint chiefs chairman general martin dempsey will make the case fort obama administration to carry out punitive strike. but senator mccain will be pushing for a plan that will lead to ending the assad regime. brian? >> brian: wow. so they're on somewhat a different page going in, but not going out. thanks so much. talking about the resolution in particular, it turns out senator leahy a democrat and two other democrats who don't buy into this so far. they want a more limited resolution if they're going to back it at all, which essentially ties the president's hands. you got 60 days to do it.
maybe 30 days if you want to finish off your mission, but that's it. you pull it back, the money stops. >> steve: let's talk about the developments. the united states has kicked british intelligence out of the syria discussions. if they're not going to be part of the attack, they're out of the room. also syrian rebels attacked the u.s. marine recruiting web site, displaying pro-assad messages. >> brian: telling the marines don't fight with the syrian army. don't fight with al-qaeda. >> steve: also after syria mocked the president's historic american retreat, saying he's going to go to congress, assad now warns of an uncontrollable war. speaking of war, at least prewar, the posturing is very expensive. the cost of waiting, as our ships steam around the mediterranean, the meter is running. costs a lot of money. >> brian: meanwhile, general jack keane weighed in on this earlier, says it's not easy keeping five warships offshore.
>> the fact of the matter is, we were taught the by the great strategist is break your opponent's will. when you delay an attack for three to four weeks, you've given a huge psychological victory to assad that was somewhat unnecessary. i think this attack should have been over a week ago. and secondly, you obviously give him an opportunity to protect his resources, particularly the things that he can move around and the command and control facilities he can empty. that makes it for challenging for us to deal with. >> steve: one other thing that's challenging for the president, he's going to the g-20 summit later today. if he's going to be making a direct appeal, he's got to do it today before he leaves tonight. also, putin thinks this is a great idea. couple of lawmakers in russia said, you know ha? if the united states congress is going to be deciding whether or not to get involved in syria, let's send a couple of russian
lawmakers over to capitol hill and they personally will lobby the americans not to do it. >> anna: do you think that's going to go over very well? >> steve: no. >> anna: yeah, like a lead balloon. >> brian: evidently putin's dislike for president obama, it's dislike for him personally and he's getting set for a direct confrontation at the g-20. i hope the president is ready. >> anna: the problem is our adversaries don't fear us anymore and the people that are normally on our side feel like they can't trust us. israel still has their iron dome missile defense system forward deployed. they've canceled military leave for some people. they called up military reserve. and meantime, some of the citizens are making sure they have their gas masks ready just in case things transpire. >> steve: here is the headline of the new york post today. fit to be tied, these are the two stars for "fifty shades of grey." it could be one of the biggest movies of all time. it was one of the biggest books of all time.
so get rid of those question marks. he will be played by charlie hunnam. and dakota johnson, the daughter of don johnson and melanie griffith will play anastasia. >> anna: some of the fans are going i'm shocked there isn't some huge name that would be casted. a lot of folks are going, who is that again? you know what? they are not going to be known about this big for long. they'll be huge stars, i imagine, from this. the movie is slated to go out in august of next year. >> brian: the sequel, best selling book of all sold 70 million copies of all time. they all go rocketing up the best seller list. >> steve: one movie goer put it this way, according to the "new york post." >> brian: one movie goer. >> steve: didn't even read "fifty shades of grey" and i'm disappointed in the cast.
[ laughter ] but if you think about it, if you cast somebody that everybody is familiar with, they go, i didn't really see brad pitt as grey. >> anna: i bet this movie will be so big, these people may end up being typecast forever. >> brian: henry winkler is always the fonz. >> steve: in the beginning of these franchises, the people were nobody. harrison ford, who heard of him? the list goes on. who would you like to see? pretend they didn't already cast these two as the stars in "fifty shades of grey." who would you like to see as the guy and the gal? e-mail us. >> brian: what was your favorite part? be specific, of the book. >> anna: that could get a little too kinky for tuesday morning. >> brian: i would like to know what people like about the book 'cause i have not read it. >> anna: you know what? guys love this book, even though it's more popular among the women. >> steve: the headlines should tell you. fit to be tied.
>> brian: so we'll go into overtime. >> anna: quote of the morning. oh, my gosh. 12 minutes after the hour now. still to come, the president only has a few days to change some minds in congress about syria. but can he do it? >> brian: right now our next guest says he's a no vote. republican congress mike turner here to explain. >> steve: then it was a slap heard around the world. now the race car driver speaking out about that surprise attack. >> brian: he said his jaw was broken. >> steve: with that little pat? >> brian: yeah. >> steve: it was a love pat. ♪ ho ho ho [ female announcer ] at 100 calories, not all food choices add up. some are giant. some not so giant. when managing your weight, bigger is always better. ♪ ho ho ho ♪ green giant

so is the u.s. even equipped to strike? joining us right now is the ohio congressman, mike turner, member of the house armed services committee. this is about money and it's about the president's lack of clear mission. am i correct, congressman? >> this is about leadership. the president has left sequestration in place. we have planes being grounded, pilots not receiving training, equipment not being maintained. yet he wants to go and spend money with the attack against syria. he has no strategy. we don't understand the risk. we don't understand who we're fighting for. and he has an unexplainable policy with his imaginary red line where 1,000 people have been killed and he acknowledged chemical weapons have likely been used, but yet now that it's been large scale, the president wants to take action to support his imaginary red line. i don't think there is an appetite in congress to bail the president out. >> brian: you think bail out or do you think the president deserves credit for going to you before going alone? >> i think the president rightly is coming to congress, but he's not done his homework.
he should have been coming to congress and the international community for months while this has been going on. to take it to this level where suddenly we have a crisis, where the president again has allowed sequestration to be impacting our men and women who are every day getting up for national security, for 12,000 people four lowed alone in my community. then to bring to us this crisis is completely irresponsible. >> brian: do you think it's irresponsible for us to allow assad to gas his own people, defy us and move forward? >> absolutely. that's why the president should have been doing his homework. this is not a crisis that just occurred. the white house has acknowledged the chemical weapons have been used in this conflict before, that the imaginary red line had already been crossed. but the president did nothing until as they're now saying, the large scale use of chemical weapons has occurred. this is a crisis where the president has allowed it to unfold and now wants to rush the united states to a conflict. >> brian: we watched senator graham and senator mccain, big
critics of president obama, meet with him yesterday for an hour and come out and say we got to back the president's decree and allow him the freedom to attack. is there a chance when you get your briefing that you'll change your mind? >> it's certainly possible. people are leaving the door open for the president to make the case. it's why i'm in washington today, to receive the classified briefing from the administration. but at tnot see congress having a change of heart. i think people are very reticent with a president that's not showing leadership in support of our military. certainly hasn't shown leadership in this conflict to suddenly vote to have the united states become engaged. >> brian: i notice this quote and part of a quote fromever dempsey earlier says our military force is so degraded and unready, it would be immoral to use force. he has changed his tune, but has welcomed a delay, at least until september 9 when you guys officially come back from vacation. thanks so much. >> thank you for having me. >> brian: coming up, 40,000 workers cutting ties with the biggest union in the country. the reason why?

>> 87.2 million made. "fast and furious 6" made. but for the worst movie of the summer, that title goes to "the lone ranger." over to you, steve. >> steve: 40,000 long shoremen are cutting ties with the afl-cio over obamacare and so-called cadillac tax. they claim the union's president, trumka, pictured there, played along to get along on the health care reform, but unions had a big say in crafting the law. so is obamacare simply not liberal enough for them? here to weigh in is news editor for town hall.com and fox news contributor, katy. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> steve: be careful what you wish for. these guys worked hard to get president obama elected on this
and now they hate it. >> they do hate it. there is nothing like a union scorned. now we have the long shoremen saying look, obamacare isn't liberal enough. look, they have a point. barak obama, before he ran for president, talked about a single payer system. you have harry reid most recently saying that obamacare is the first test of single payer. now this offshoot wrote a letter to richard trumka, the president of the afl-cio who has been going along to get along. he bragged about shoving obamacare down the throats of republicans. didn't really know what was in it because he enjoys going to the white house. he enjoys being an honored guest at president obama's state of the union addresses and this afl-cio is saying look, you let him tax our cadillac plan at 40%. we're not giving the unions what they need. in the end, if they don't really want a single payer system, they're not being realistic about the cost of that.
so if they're upset about a cadillac tax, they better start getting upset about the amount of taxes that are going to come out of the paychecks of workers once we get a single payer system, god forbid that ever happens. >> steve: you mentioned that the long shoremen wrote a letter to trumka. here is an excerpt of it. it says: we feel the federation has done a great disservice to the labor movement and all working people by going along to get along. president obama ran on a platform that he would not tax medical plans and since 2009 afl-cio convention, you stated that labor would not stand for a tax on the benefits. but that is exactly the direction they're headed with this thing. going forward, though, historically, unions have fallen on tough time when it comes to membership. okay. afl-cio just lost 40,000 more members. where is the incentive to join a union? >> well, we've seen there really isn't one on both sides.
they think it's too far left or not conservative enough. we've seen when people have a choice to join a labor union, they decide not to. so labor unions are getting it from all sides. president obama is getting it from all sides. let's not forget that a bunch of union leaders, from the teamsters and other big unions, wrote a letter to congress and president obama saying we voted for you to fix the problem. you're killing the 40-hour workweek, but you can't have it both ways. you either have to understand that government involved in health care costs more for workers, whether you're unionized or not, or you have to understand that you need to keep it privatized and find other ways to reform the health care system. you can't have it both ways. >> steve: that's right. one of the brilliant parts of obamacare was it would start to be enacted in total after the president was reelected. here we are. all right. >> delaying, delaying. >> steve: there you go. thank you very much for joining us on this tuesday. >> thank you. >> steve: what do you think about this? e-mail us, 'cause you're really heating up the e-mail about this

the mediterranean. but the united states denying that we have fired any missiles. conner powell live in jerusalem with the very latest. we were curious who shot those things off. now we know, conner. >> so were the russians and so was everybody in this region. the tension here certainly not fading away. earlier in the day, russia said it detected two ballistic missiles fired from the mediterranean somewhere. russia pointing the finger sort of at israel or the united states. israel saying a short while ago they were conducting a test to align their radar system that this was preplanned. officially, this has nothing to do with syria. however, the russians and other people in the region may think this was sort of a coded message about finger on the trigger and ready for any possible scenario here. meanwhile, russia says that they don't believe that the american evidence that's been put forward is proof of a chemical weapons attack in syria two weeks ago. russia calling on the white house to declassify all of its
intelligence that they have regarding this chemical weapons attack two weeks ago. russia's foreign minister saying that what he has seen so far is absolutely unconvincing, while president putin says the notion that syria forces would fire on their own people is, quote, utter nonsense. of course, president obama is heading to russia here later this week for the g-20 summit. no doubt syria and the chemical attack and the claims of the chemical attack will be a topic of conversation. here in the middle east, tensions are still very high. a lot of finger pointing about what's happening, who should do what here in this region. things here are always tense, but still wrapping up here, it is still really, really tense because right now nobody knows what washington is going to do. there are a lot of naval ships, both american and russian in the region. of course, syria, the fighting is ongoing. guys? >> steve: yeah. syria is the wild card. conner, thank you very much.
now other stories making headlines, was it an accidents or a murder? the family of a high school wrestler killed in january believes foul play is to blame. the 17-year-old georgia high school student was found dead rolled up in a wrestling mat. authorities believe he climbed on top of them to get his shoe, then fell. a second autopsy was just done and the family is expected to release the findings in the next few weeks. the first autopsy ruled his death, an accident. >> brian: new reason you may want to get a flu vaccine this year. for the first time ever, the vaccine will protect against four strains of the flu, including one where children are likely to catch. but there is one problem. there are 135 million flu vaccines this year. but only 30 million will offer this new protection. experts say parents should not wait to get the new version as there is no hard data that shows it's better. >> anna: talk about horsepower. 30 horses went wild in mexico city, galloping down a busy
roadway. they were scared by the sound of a car engine apparently as they were taken out of their trailers near the city's congress building. they were helping to control protesters, is their normal job. one person suffered minor injuries and 11 cars damaged during that stampede. >> steve: that's a lot of horsepower. it was a slap heard around the sports carl. driver taking a hard hit to the face from the girlfriends of another driver. this morning, pappas says he can't even eat a sandwich because he can't close his mouth. he also says his ears are still ringing. brian, it does not appear that it is that big a slap. >> brian: you remember the bolo shot hit in the front of his face. people are still saying how could you knock that huge man
down. maybe it caught him just right. there is some footage of that. his jaw was open. he was aghast that this woman was about to strike him of the then they strikes him -- >> anna: actually, it was pretty good. >> anna: zinging him on the ear is what really messes him up. i don't know about the broken jaw aspect of it. i took a defense course. they say zing them in the ear. you leave your arm lymph -- limp and go like that. >> brian: that's good to know. also, just don't hit him. women shouldn't be hittingn sho. does maria feel differently? >> it depends. do we know why she did that? >> steve: her boyfriend's car was bumped. >> oh, i think it was right. >> steve: really? >> i'm just kidding. terrible. now with cameras on your phones, now you got that on video on the
phone. and things end up on youtube. now let's look at the weather conditions. i want to look at the temperatures across the northeast, over the last several days we've been dealing with very muggy weather. that's all ahead of a cold front that's finally going to be clearing through the area as we head into later on this afternoon and in places like new york city, while today your high is going to be in the low 80s, over the next several days, you'll feel temperatures dropping a little bit and so will the humidity. the nice weather is around the corner across parts of the northeast. the parts of the plains are still experiencing very summerlike weather with temperatures well into the 90s. even triple digits for some of you across parts of texas. otherwise very quickly looking at the northeast, you can see those temperatures gradually dropping by thursday, only in the 70s in new york city. and out west, we're talking flooding concerns across parts of nevada, idaho, and even sections of oregon. a number of watches are in effect. now let's head over to steve, anna and brian. >> steve: thank you very much. >> anna: 38 minutes after the hour. a comeback story unlike any other.
high school football player lost his leg last fall after a severe break led to a life-threatening infection. doctors told him he would never play football again. >> brian: just ten months later, he joined his team for their opening game and left the field with no less than two touchdowns and one sack. >> steve: this incredible athlete joins us right now on the phone. good morning to you. >> good morning. how you guys doing? >> steve: we're doing okay. but you are doing even better. they said you would never play football again. but there you did. how did you do it? >> you know, it's been a long road. my first day out of the hospital, i mean, i made my coach open up the weight room for me just so i could maybe get something in. it's just been -- i've just been in there ever since. i force myself to wrestle a month after surgery to get out there and compete. six months out of surgery, i did track just to get on my blade
more, so i could get more used to running with that thing. >> steve: you've got a blade like oscar pistorius, right? >> yeah. >> anna: how long did it take you to even learn to walk again? they said it was going to take a whole lot longer than it actually took you before you ended up on the football field, you had to learn to walk. you played track, you wrestled. you're an amazing individual. what was rehab like? >> i tried to do rehab with the doctors. they sent me there. my mom made me go a couple of times, but i felt like they were holding me back. so i quit going to rehab with the doctors after my second time, i think. i just stuck with my coaches and the weight room and i felt like i was pushing myself harder than they ever could. i felt like they were holding me back course they didn't want me to do certain things and my prosthetic guy, he's understanding of where i wanted to be, you know, coming into the
summer i wanted to be playing in team camps with my team. i was getting fitted for my first leg three weeks after surgery, when i'm not even fully healed right now. these things take forever to heal up. i really pushed the healing process and pushed -- had to push through a lot of pain to be where i am right now. >> brian: i understand it's even painful during the game. as well as you've gone, you'll take a couple plays off because the pain gets so intense, right? >> yeah. just constantly beating on it like that, i don't mind -- i have a high pain tolerance, so i don't mind it. but just the feeling of being out there on the field again was way -- was overwhelming. it kind of blocked my mind of the pain. >> steve: it's overwhelming for us, too. and i understand you were recently offered a walk-on scholarship from your dream college, right? >> yeah. >> steve: where?

>> brian: now your fox news alert. republican senator lindsey graham sending a strong message to america on america's involvement in syria. listen. >> mr. president, clear the air. be decisive, be firm about why it matters to us as a nation to get syria right. >> brian: is the president ready to be decisive and firm or is there a lack of leadership from the white house? >> steve: joining us is author and conservative columnist ann coulter. good morning to you. by the way, her book just came out in paperback. >> thank you. >> steve: what do you think of the president now dealing in congress, hey, you guys decide? >> right. surprisingly enough, even the "new york times" headline on this was president drags congress into box of his own making. what republicans ought to be able to vote on in congress is whether they can invent a time machine, go back and not have obama issue an ultimatum on chemical weapons. i'm really enjoying seeing all these liberals, the utter, utter
blinding hypocrisy of them complain being this chemical weapons attack? saddam hussein killed ten times as many people with chemical weapons. 5,000 kurds, his own kurds, in a single day. and now suddenly oh, no, now we must be the country that stops these genocides. what about rwanda? is it better to see little kids have their limbs macheted. we ought -- what america should do should be in america's national security interest. i don't see any national security interest here. he doesn't either or he wouldn't be trying to drag congress into make this decision for him. >> brian: david axelrod made a political statement after. he said the president has turned the tables on republicans. the dog that caught the bus. it seems to be a telling slip. does that show that this is political when axelrod makes that statement? >> yeah! we're talking about our national security. him being the commander in chief. this is just a political game
for them. you can not trust democrats to be commander in chief. americans remember that when you vote for a president. they can not take national security seriously. we do not intervene in countries to make america safer. we're 20 reasons to take out saddam hussein and by the way, can you imagine if he were around now in the middle of this? literally thank god george bush took him out of the picture. >> steve: now it looks like congress is in -- he's boxed congress in. we saw john mccain yesterday after the meeting with the president say unless congress goes along with it, it could be catastrophic. >> as opposed to going along with it and then it will be smooth sailing. it's catastrophic to go in. if he hits the chemical weapons plant itself, he could be responsible for releasing things. what if syria retaliates? the entire world -- they used to say under bush, the world hates us, the world hates us. now the world is laughing at us. can you imagine what putin thinks of this guy?
>> brian: right. >> what will happen if he intervenes and there is an attack on israel or who knows where the attack could come? by the way, these chemical weapons came from iraq. >> brian: i wouldn't doubt that. i would be happy to see the top of the canisters to see the return address. senator kerry, speaker pelosi and you look at others, have all said positive things about assad. friendly, a reformer, agent for change. now he's enemy number one. >> right! the point i'd make is liberals are so unserious that i mean, obviously any country you're not at war with, you're going to have diplomatic relations with. they made such a big deal of donald rumsfeld meeting with saddam hussein 20 years earlier. we weren't writing puff pieces in vogue about saddam hussein asking about assad. >> steve: always a pleasure. check out "mugged" in paperback. ann coulter. >> brian: straight ahead. >> anna: something like this ever happen to you?

point, regardless of whether you like obama or not, and this has nothing to do with whether we like obama or not, this is a question of whether this is good for the united states of america. people talking about weapons of mass destruction is a horrible thing. we have a current weapon of mass destruction called unemployment in this country. this president's number one focus was going to be jobs. i think we can all conclude that whole thing is out the window. this whole jobs thing is is an afterthought. it's confused and muddled. the idea that the republicans and john mccain and lindsey graham march out of the white house yesterday and say, well, the president really screwed all this up, and we should have done a lot more and we should have armed these rebel, but we really have to move forward because our credibility is at stake. no, no, no. our credibility is not at stake. the president's credibility is at stake. >> anna: isn't that one and the same? >> no, it actually is not. what's good for our country and what's good for president obama politically are two separate things. i think he has made things very difficult for himself and our country, but it doesn't mean we make things worse by getting
involved in a conflict where apparently we're going to be arming people who are screaming allah akbar as they shoot down a jet or whatever it is they're doing over there. >> anna: normally the president doesn't seem to go to congress to consult with them. >> no! >> anna: the red line and if you cross it -- >> he had a bill buckner moment. >> anna: why is he going to congress now? >> i'm not going to say anything about buckie dunn. he's a bungled series of decisions that have been made. it's almost like it's been done between tee times. you can't figure out their approach here and kerry, the photo, the embarrassing photo from 2009, the dinner with -- >> brian: nancy pelosi. >> pass the sarin, please. what was happening at that table? he didn't say sarin, did he? i thought he said salt. >> steve: kerry was friends with assad before he was against him. >> it's a mess. >> steve: for people looking in right now, in your estimation,
there is absolutely no reason we should be involved in syria. >> our country is really hurting and i think our people are extremely skeptical for good reason. we were told that the engagement in afghanistan, we understood it was not going to be an unending war and ten years later, people thought we were still there. we lost a sergeant on august 31 on foot patrol. we have still people being killed there. again, for the neoconservatives to say, our credibility is at stake, i would submit to them that our credibility might be at stake because of very confused foreign policy over the last 12 years, let alone over the last 12 months. >> brian: which americans say it's the current administration is saying and form secretary of state, now the current one. here is congressman turner, one of the many republicans who will be asked to support the president when it goes up as early as september 9. this is what he said to us this morning. >> he has no strategy.
we don't understand the risks. we don't understand who we're fighting for. he has an unexplainable policy with his imaginary red line where over 1,000 people have been killed. now that it's been a large scale, the president wants to take action to support his imaginary red line. i don't think there is an appetite in congress to bail the president out for this. >> brian: that's basically your feeling. charlie rangel, among the democrats saying i'm not going to vote. >> this is a time to bring the country together. red state, blue state, purple territory, this is purple territory. the american people want a sober and i think judicious attack. >> brian: you know assad has blood on his hands. >> of course he does. who doesn't. >> brian: he's a vital ally to iran. >> of course he is. we made iran stronger sadly. i was one of the most vociferous
supporters of the iraq war. that strengthened iran's hand. in the last ten years, we got involved in two major military actions. our country is poorer. we have more unemployment. we have barak obama as president. we wouldn't have him as president, sadly, if we didn't go into iraq. yes, all of those things are true and it's true that we do not have a defined role. maybe somehow this will emerge in the next week. i doubt it. >> steve: chemical weapons are atrocious. there is no doubt about that. but aside from that, when it comes to the civil war, you got -- who we would consider bad guys killing each other. so why get involved in that? when you look at the people now saying that we've got to do something about assad, you look at the president. you look at john kerry, chuck hagel, joe biden, they all opposed george bush playing tough. >> what about sarin gas against the kurds? we would go around and around, christopher hitchens. he had this incredible video he would show me about what happened to the kurds. none of that mattered back then.
so what is the actual test for this president and today where we are with all the realities on the on the ground now? what is our test for foreign policy? what? for people to say you have to sport president. the constitution is very clear. there is not a blank check for any executive, republican or democrat, to bring the country into another ill-en conceived, undefined -- read your constitution. >> anna: even having the five military ships in the mediterranean sea ain't cheap. >> russia today is sending out these tweets saying, we detected this ballistic missile launch. nobody knew who launched it. russia, we're trying to figure out what is going on. things are very tense over in the middle east. >> brian: i have not said -- i don't believe necessarily that nonaction is the best action here. so i don't agree with you on that. although i agree with you that
this policy couldn't be more muddled or more unimpresssive. >> i said military action. there is a lot we can do geopolitically. number one, get our country stronger. >> brian: why assad legitly -- senator kerry, chairman of the foreign relations, sat down with him and called him a friend. the former speaker of the house, nancy pelosi, says he does not stand for president bush's policies are not my policies. hillary clinton said he's a reformer. he thought he had this administration in the palm of his hand. >> president bush, putin, i looked into his soul, his eyes. it was a moment. cue the lionel richie music. next we'll be dancing on the ceiling. you're making my point. no one understands what america's role is in the middle east today, given the promises that were made to the people who are funding this war going into debt over this war, dying, bleeding, getting wounded. we do all the wounded warrior stuff on fox. these men are so many -- so many

encouraged when the president commits to increasing our support for the free syrian army, providing them with weapons that they need to combat assad and to degrade the capabilities of the syrians to deliver these chemical weapons and other weapons. that cannot be anything but encouraging. but i've said i've got to see the details. i've got to see what happened and i will not sign on to a resolution that doesn't say that that's going to happen. i'm very worried about just one of these cosmetic kind of resolutions. so i just beg to differ. i'm sure that with her vast knowledge of military tactics and strategies, she knows better than me. >> steve: there is an item in the "wall street journal" today that talks a little about how even though the white house authorized arping some of the moderate fighters, they're still
waiting for a rifle. they're still waiting for bullets. >> brian: or mra. >> it's terrible. >> steve: it looked like the plan was -- let's look like we're doing something, but let's not do anything. let's see how this plays out. people are dying over there. >> absolutely. while we dither here and congress stays out of session, the massacre goes on. i've been so disappointed and angry because as you know, i've been in syria. i know the free syrian army. they're brave people and they're being massacred by arms that are flowing in by air from their sponsor, iran, and russia and it's an unfair fight. they're fighting tanks with ak 47s. so that's why i said, i'd like to see what that plan is and i'd like to see it done. you are right, not one single weapon supplied by the united states of america, has reached the hands of the free syrian army. by the way, we know who they are. they are the most effective fighting force and we can get
the weapons to the right people. i know that. >> brian: i know you met with the general, a defector from the syrian army who has come out. some say he does have tie to muslim extremists. i don't know. listen to this video, senator mccain, of a syrian -- looked like a fighter jet being shot out of the sky. listen to what they say afterwards. >> allah akbar! allah akbar! >> brian: i have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit. >> would you have a problem with american person saying thank god? thank god? that's what they're saying. come on. of course they're muslims, but they're moderates and i guarantee you they are moderates. i know them and i've been with them. for someone to say allah akbar is about as offensive as someone saying thank god. >> brian: general differently came out and said the time doesn't matter. we can wait a couple of weeks. it's not going to affect us
tactically. do you agree with that? >> that's crazy. he may be candid, but it's crazy. look at the israelis. do you think they'd give them a week or two warning? and by the way, i understand they struck again maybe today from a distance without endangering any of their people or their aircraft. of course, it's -- i hate to use the word disgraceful, but to tell the american people that it doesn't matter when we strike while assad is moving his military into civilian areas and vice-versa and implicating our challenge dramatically is just disgraceful. >> brian: so you don't support this tactic then? you don't support waiting on what president obama is doing? >> of course not. i didn't think the president needed to wait. ronald reagan invaded granada without congressional approval. the war powers don't say that. what i'm trying to do is to see if we can't give the resistance
>> brian: quick headlines. new overnight, off the air in egypt, egyptian court banning al-jazeera's local station and three others. why? they say for biased coverage in favor of muslim brotherhood protests. there is more great white sharks at beaches. they can swim 3,000 miles in three months and return to their favorite beaches every year. but scientists add the low number of shark attacks mean it's probably safe to go in the
water. circle the word "probably". >> anna: scientists shocked the world, releasing new findings that claim being fat might not be such a bad thing. the study coming to us from germany found that one in four overweight people also happened to be healthy. an attending physician of urology in new york. good morning to you. >> good morning. how are you? >> anna: fantastic. so we're thinking hey, i'm going to have sausage and bacon with my pancake this is morning when we hear this news. but you say that may not actually ring so true. >> this study was presented in the medical journal and it's fascinating because what they did, they presented data on what they call metabolically healthy or unhealthy obese patients. they separated them according to those patients with obesity alone and those patients who have obesity with the other risk
factors like high blood pressure, high lipid, high cholesterol levels, high sugar levels. what they showed in these observational studies is that patients who have these other risk factors have far worse outcomes than those that just have obesity alone. this is very, very interesting data. >> anna: how can you tell if you're someone who is overweight? we use bmi here in the states a lot, which has been in the cross hairs because it's pretty much your height and weight and if you have a lot of muscle mass, then you may appear to be obese even. but how do you tell? is it your heart rate? is it how quickly you can run a mile? what is it? >> bmi may be a crude way to assess obesity and the consequences to your health of being overweight. in these new studies, really what they're look at is do you have fat around your abdomen, what we call visceral fat is thought to be a much higher risk
factor. the other issue is do you have abnormal sugar levels? do you have insulin resistance, a condition called metabolic issues. there are a subset of patients overweight who do not have these risk factors. but there are many patients who also have diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure. this may be very interesting in the way we manage obesity. do these patients qualify as metabolically healthy, or are these patients better served by having gastric bypass? i think it will be very useful to use that intervention. >> anna: thank you so much for your time today. >> thank you very much. >> anna: she says the bottom line is he still can't be -- you still can't be obese over the long haul because that's not healthy. unfortunately we can't have the bacon and the sausage with our pancakes. next up, the stars of "fifty shades of grey" on the big

that's merrill edge and bank of america. >> brian: fox news alert. president obama just over an hour from meeting with ranking members of congress looking for syrian attack. molly henneberg is live at the white house. the president is on a quick offensive. then he's got to hit the road and go to the g-20 summit. >> good morning. yes, he will be leaving town tonight. there has been this debate and it's going on now not just about whether to get involved in syria, but debate over whether and how to arm the opposition in syria. republican senator john mccain, for example, has been pressing the obama administration to do more, to help those fighting syrian government. mccain now says the president has sort of changed the thinking on this and is now willing to, quote, upgrade the capabilities of the free syrian army. >> the fact is that we have not
given the arms and equipment to the assistance, which has been shameful, while huge amounts of arms have flown in from russia and iran and now thousands of hezbollah on the ground from lebanon. >> that may be changing, according to senator mccain. he, along with republican senator lindsey graham, met with the president on syria in the oval office yesterday. the white house says the u.s. started helping the anti-assad forces after the first chemical weapons attack earlier this year. here is the president axe spokesman from last week. >> let's be clear, that we have substantially stepped up our support for the opposition and we did so fairly recently in response to our assessment that the syrian regime had clearly used on a much smaller scale, but numerous incidents, chemical weapons. >> the white house won't confirm, though, if that kind of support included any kind of weapons or what kind of weaponry
the obama administration now may be considering sending over to syrian opposition as senator mccain wants and says the president may be agreeing with him on. as for the president's schedule today, he will leave tonight for sweden and then the g-20 summit in russia. but before he goes, he's going to be meeting here at the white house with top house and senator leaders, both republicans and democrats, on key national security committees to try to win their support for military action in syria. back to you all in new york. >> steve: thank you very much. molly doesn't know officially because the white house hasn't responded. john mccain just told us 15 minutes ago that so far, the support the white house has given them has not been in the form of any weaponry. >> brian: at all. yeah. now he convinced senator mccain to somewhat spar it, but he thinks it's been totally bungled to this point. >> steve: you just heard jay carney say yes, we've been very supportive. how? go get em, guys! >> brian: the president met with
the -- the senator just met with the president for an hour. if he was supporting him, it would have come out. >> anna: he doesn't have a lot of time to make his case. more headlines this morning. the san francisco bay bridge is back open after being shut down all week for repairs. the work finally being done 24 years after an earthquake damaged the eastern span of that bridge. the new span was built six years behind schedule and five times overbudget. design disputes and financial issues the reason for the delay. >> brian: long shoremen and warehouse union now cutting its ties with the afl-cio. that's not a okay because it's because of obamacare. not the reason you think. the union's 40,000 members are angry over the so-called cadillac tax and call union president richard trumka, they say he played along to get them on board with health care reform, something unions spent a lot of time promoting. remember? >> you either have to understand that government involved in
health care cost more for workers, whether you're unionized or not, or you have to understand that you need to keep it privatized and find other ways to reform the health care system. you can't have it both ways. >> brian: long shore had been affiliated with the afl-cio for 25 years. >> steve: meanwhile, you are paying $6,600 a month for this plane and it doesn't even fly. the plane was part of the united states' efforts to broadcast an american-run television station into cuba. the sequester eliminated funding for the fuel and the pilot. the lawmakers refused to kill funding for the actual plane, so now the plane is just collecting dust. it's not going anywhere. >> anna: kanye west cashing in on what some say is blood money. he pocketed some $3 million performing for a controversial dictator. the rapper flew all the way to kazakhstan to play at the president's grandson's wedding. during the leader's 23-year rule, he's been accused of stealing the country's oil for
himself and violating human rights, including murder. those are your news headlines. over to brian for sports. >> brian: tennis, early exit for a legend. u.s. open's roger federer gone. he was upset in the fourth round. the first time federer lost in the round of 16. he made had 3 unforced errors. he said it was frustrating. if he won, he would have faced nidal. police and school officials in alabama getting involved in this brawl. both coaches would hit each other and tumble to the turf as the cops, players and coaches rush to separate them. one of the coaches has been placed on administrative leave. i don't believe that's exemplary behavior. let's talk about professional football. this definitely is not the way to start a pro football career. this rookie, john boyett,
arrested for public intoxication after an altercation with the police in indianapolis. according to cops, he insisted they couldn't arrest him because he played for the colts. he was released on $150 bond. >> anna: you think we'll see him doing any reese witherspoon action where he apologizes? >> brian: no. it didn't work for reese and she was in "sweet home alabama." >> steve: that's right. what's coming up on the radio? >> brian: frank wolf has his proposal. get some experienced people, congressmen, around you, president obama, put together a council, jim baker and company, and then make a decision. bill cowan goes to iraq once a week. the latest on the pentagon. all on kilmeade and friends. >> steve: brand-new video into "fox & friends." more than 60 people rescued by boat. in rhode island, rising flood waters forced them out of their apartment complex.
quite a deluge yesterday. maria, can we expect more today? >> unfortunately, we can be seeing more rain along the east coast, at least for the first half of today. that's associated with a cold front. over the last several days, we've been ahead of that system. to the east of it. that's been the story across places like new york city, parts of rhode island, and even up into sections of boston. that storm system is finally going to be clearing out and behind it, we're going to be enjoying nice weather coming up very soon over the next several days in the northeast. first i want to take you to the plains. look at texas. still feeling like summer out there. upper 90s in dallas. triple digits for san antonio. the northeast, again that front will be clearing out later on today and temperatures will be dropping. so will the humidity. so get ready for some more fall-like weather across sections of the northeast. otherwise out west, we have showers and storms continuing across parts of nevada and expected up into parts of western montana. there is a flood threat. so we have a number of flash flood watches in effect out here, up to two inches is
possible. in this part of the country, we don't really need a lot of rain to see flooding. >> steve: that's right. easy runoff. thank you very much. meanwhile, let's talk a little bit about one of the biggest books of all time, "fifty shades of grey," it is going to be made -- >> brian: it was requesting a tale of two cities." >> steve: it will be made into a big movie and now we are able to -- we've got a couple of silhouettes with big question marks. we're able to finally reveal who the male and female leads will be and there they are. who are they? >> anna: a lot of people are asking that question this morning. some fans of the book are going, i would not have cast these characters. this is charlie hunnam and dakota johnson. charlie is 30 years old. >> steve: very good actor. >> anna: he apparently will be a good fit because of his age, being 33 and he's very muscular and all that. she apparently has this angelic, innocent look, which obviously
changes a whole lot throughout the book. >> steve: and she is actually the daughter of don johnson and melanie griffith. so she's hollywood royalty by extension. so she's going to be one of the two people who will be launched into superstar dom if this movie is half as big as the book was. >> brian: so we asked you, who would you cast? >> steve: a lot of people don't like those two choices. >> brian: right. a lot of people are focused on this book. so let's talk about this. for the men, ann summerholder. why not? collin examplelesfield. robert pattinson, always seems pouty. matt ballmer and ryan gosling. pretty solid choices. >> anna: ryan gosling, that would be a good one. for the ladies, emma watson, alexis slidel, vera sarmega. >> steve: a lot of those people are famous for other things.
if you're the producer, you would figure you would want somebody new so they don't come with any -- >> anna: so they're not typecast. so you're not the robert pattinson from twilight or daniel ratcliffe from harry potter. we asked everybody at home. jamie in ohio said are you crazy? i love charlie hunnam. you guys are out of the loop. >> steve: linda says i think they did a great job. baby boomers and everyone else needs to let go of wanting only the same old type stars cast. we need new hollywood stars. >> brian: all right. we'll see what happens. if it works, there is about two or three follow-ups and sequels. >> anna: i'm trying to figure out how it's going to end up in the real theater and not be x-rated. this is kinky stuff. >> brian: okay. our kids allowed to read this book? >> steve: you really shouldn't. >> brian: straight ahead, the phrase, one nation under god, may be a thing of the past. atheists waging an unprecedented
war against the pledge of allegiance. peter johnson, jr. pledges to talk about it. >> steve: the worst drivers in america come from, guess where. the answer after the break ♪ no two people have the same financial goals. pnc investments works with you to understand yours and helps plan for your retirement. talk to a pnc investments financial advisor today. ♪ [ female announcer ] at 100 calories, not all food choices add up. some are giant. some not so giant.

steve, over to you. >> steve: i would agree with that actually. meanwhile, it has been more than 40 years since the late comedian, red skeleton recited the pledge of allegiance on his television show and ended it like this. >> since i was a small boy, two states have been added to our country and two words have been added to the pledge of allegiance. "under god." wouldn't it be a pity if someone said that is a prayer and that would be eliminated from schools, too? >> steve: that was then and this is now. red skeleton's fear is now a strong possibility because in massachusetts court is set to hear a case that would banish the words "under god" from the pledge of allegiance. here to discuss the case, peter johnson, jr. >> hi, steve. red skeleton was not only a great comedian, but prophetic in that sense. that is exactly become the
issue. the new assault on the pledge of allegiance, one nation under god is somehow it defies equal protection laws under the state constitution of massachusetts. that will be dealt with tomorrow. in argument, this has gone up the court system. the school district, 20 miles near boston, prevailed and said no. this is not a mandatory recitation. the supreme court says it doesn't have to be. it shouldn't be mandatory. and this is based upon our cultural and historical roots in this country and the people should have known because they responded to the call of paul revere in the battle of concorde. >> steve: that's the key. it's historical. >> it's historical. and no court has really with a straight face said, well, this is a religious endorsement. this is a religious endorsement by the united states of america
and we're forcing this on the children as they stand up at school every day to say the pledge of allegiance. there is something wrong in our country when two things become a problem: pledging and allegiance to the republic that stands for liberty and justice. that goes forward in the pledge of allegiance that goes back to the 18 90s, reformed in 1954 based upon a lawyer from the sons of the american revolution and the knights of columbus proposed it, but it was based not upon the country adopting some religious belief, but based upon the fact that our founding fathers developed this country based on some understanding of natural rights, divine rights that any government can't pull away from us. >> steve: historical. real briefly, the exit question, this suit is being brought by an unnamed atheist couple. >> yeah. an atheist humanist couple and their children and they're
saying that somehow they're being denied equal protection under the law and they're singled out because they don't want to stand up -- >> steve: are they? >> i don't think so. but it's a big cultural problem. this a fight that will continue to go on and on. it's all the more galling every time we see a casket brought home to the united states when folks are going to say, i'm not going to pledge my allegiance to the united states of america, a nation under god. it's disturbing. >> steve: amen. all right, thank you. we'll keep you posted on that. meanwhile, she's cute, cuddly and as of today, a published author is taking the internet by storm and about to take over "fox & friends." first let's check in with martha mccallum for a preview of what happens in ten minute. >> busy morning coming up. good morning to you. the president now turns his attention to the house leaders today to win approval for a serious strike. this is no easy lift. what if the president loses that

start a blog, like this is something that happens on the internet. cat blog. i thought she was great and i'd like to share her. then after a few weeks even of just putting a few pictures on-line, we started getting messages, very touching messages. >> brian: like what? >> the very first one i got was someone who said thanks for posting pictures of my cat. she's the only thing getting me through grad school. >> anna: wow. >> it's like wow. she really has an effect on people beyond me. >> brian: some of the stories are in the book "the extraordinary life of the most amazing cat an the planet." we'll talk about that when we get back with mike and little bub [ female announcer ] a classic macaroni & cheese from stouffer's
