tv   Shepard Smith Reporting  FOX News  November 21, 2013 12:00pm-1:01pm PST

12:00 pm
the show. have a great day. and we'll be right back after this. >> there is breaking news now. oil shepard smith. we're monitoring a volatile situation at the time north carolina central university, a university in durham, north carolina, where the school's twitter site sent a message reading the nccu -- north cared central university campus is on lockdown. please stay away from all windows and doors. there's a possible active shooter on campus. there's been a lot of excitement on that campus over the last 24 hours. they had a huge win in basketball at nc state, cross-region rivals, and the campus was all abuzz. today there is the word of a possibility of a shooter on campus. it's frustrating not having anymore information. in
12:01 pm
in fact here is what we are getting on the twitter. they're been sending them out for the past 25 minutes should we get anything more on it i will bring you that information right away. >> first at 3:00, historic day on capitol hill. the u.s. senate voted to change the long-standing rule when it comes to presidential nominees. in essence, most democrats voted to stop republicans from block most of president obama's nominations with filibusters. here are the facts. the president's nominations for the judicial and executive branches now require just 51 votes, a simple majority, instead of 60. this does not change anything for supreme court name nations -- nominations. this also applies to future presidents, so if republicans get -- if democrats get it back they have to deal with this as well. president obama said the democrats had to make the change to get anything done in washington. >> today's pattern of
12:02 pm
obstruction just isn't normal. it's not what our founders envisioned. a deliberate and determined effort to obstruct everything no matter what the merits just too refight the results of an election is not normal. >> republicans say the vote was power grab. >> i would sum it up by saying it's a sad day in the history of the senate, after today, advise and consent means to then, 100% consent. >> one democratic senator said the level of gridlock today became a tipping point. mike emanuel is on capitol hill. sounds like democrats are frustrated and point to nomination of nomination where the qualifications are there and it's just a political up or down, and they got sick of it and changed the rules. >> they are hammering that something needed to be done to stop gridlock in washington, but
12:03 pm
senator harry reid acknowledged these rules will apply when republicans are in power, and a leading democrat fired back at republicans who suggested the move is all about trying to change the subject from obamacare. >> mitch m-connell says we have tried to change the subject? i beg to differ. he doesn't want to address the fill bester and the -- fill buster and the rules changes so three-quarters of his speech is dedicated to obamacare. we're not changing the subject today, he is. >> reporter: a lot of complaints about the idea of nominees for the bench being held up. a lot of republicans say that sometimes they're held up to get more information from the obama administration. that is very little power that the minority power has, but bottom line, the nuclear option wag invoked today. >> the nuclear option. in practical terms, you get nominations, you get people put into their jobs, but as far as the gridlock in washington goes, this isn't going to solve that. >> reporter: it's already been extremely difficult to get big
12:04 pm
things done here on capitol hill when you talk about the budget, the debt, and other major topics, and people are wondering what the impact will be as we deal with those topics in the coming months. the nuclear option is known for that because it essentially blows up the place as it is known to operate. this comes as the senate is working on the nomination of janet yellen to lead the feds. he nomination paced out so she is on the path to being confirmed by the overall senate. today a leading republican called the nuclear option both devastating and disturbing. >> in my view, this is the most important and most dangerous restructuring of senate rules since thomas jefferson wrote them at the beginning of our country. it's really not about the filibuster. >> so. >> reporter: bottom line, a lot of folks on capitol hill say the senate is supposed to be different than the house. the house is majority rule.
12:05 pm
the senate is more deliberative, debate, and then vote, but the rules changed today, shep. >> hadn't the customed changed over time? it wasn't always the case that everytime the president put somebody up for nomination, that everyone in the opposing party voted it down. that's a new thing, isn't it? >> reporter: there are numbers i can pull that will say the republicans have confirmed a lot of nominees for president obama, confirmed a tremendous number of judges. they say they've confirmed more judges president obama's term than president bush term, and the president came out and say the helping of the wait is extremely long for these judges. they're good people expo serve to serve on the bench. so you can break that either way you want to depending on your point of you. >> if you're flying this holiday season, your pilot might have
12:06 pm
forgotten how to try. that's the astounding finding of a study the feds are about to release. "the wall street journal" reviewed this in advance. cording to the journal's reporting, the study finds that technology and cockpits has got son good that a lot of pilots are having trouble flying airplanes by hand instead of relying on auto pilot. like folks who do their math with calculators and can't remember basic school arithmetic, or people do their driving using their iphones and can't figure out where streets are. the feds found two-thirds -- two-thirds -- made mistakes or had trouble flying planes manually. the study calls this the greatest risk to passengers worldwide and it's already been deadly. case in point, this past sunday in russia, when a plane plunged to the earth. the pilots were trying to gain speed but ended up in an unstoppable nose dive.
12:07 pm
investigators suspect pilot errors in this crash landing of a jumbo jet in san francisco, and in 2009, an air franceent went down. investigators say the pilots could not figure out what the plane's automated systems were telling them. all 228 people onboard died. let's take this to our aviation consultant, mike boyd, on what appears to be a snowy afternoon in denver. nice to see you. >> yes, sir. >> this idea that a lot of pilots have forgotten how to fly, that's disturbing. >> let's not overemphasize it. they're trained to fly the airplanes they have with the equipment on it in the process of that they don't get a lot of stick time, and that means when these system goes down or the systems don't do the right thing, the skills needed to be honed to understand that, and i think this report alone fixes half the problem. you're going to have the airline pilots association, they're
12:08 pm
going to be on this, and that situation is going to get fixed in the near term. doesn't mean we're unsafe. just means when certain things going on you're looking at a man saying, now what do i do? >> you spend to much time letting the machine do it. driving a car is muscle memory, but if you live in cruise control all the time you lose your edge. is that part of this? >> it is. i have old cars and learned very expensively that old cars don't shut the headlights off on their own, don't pop the brake off. expensive. in here, hand flying an airplane, stick time, is important, too, and every professional pilot in america is paying attention to this report. >> it's my understanding from a couple of pilot is know that from time to time they'll land the plane manually even though the auto pilot is working fine, just to get the reps in. >> absolutely.
12:09 pm
it's called stick time and being able to fly the airplane yourself. i think pilots like to do this. this report is going to be profitable for safety because the pilots will say, now we know what to do. so it's a positive thing this came out. >> should somebody getting on a plane going to granny's for the thanksgiving weekend be worried? no just be worried you'll be stuck in the middle seat. otherren that you'll be safe. >> or travel though northeast. we just got a gridlock warning for wednesday next week, the northeast corridor is a mess next week. on that front, are we in a situation where the air traffic control systems are outdated or a volume problem or what? >> there's less airplanes in the sky over the thanksgiving holiday and less people. there will be a crush on the freeways but know the skies. the reality is our air traffic control system -- you're just as
12:10 pm
likely to be delayed. any day vs. the holidays. we haven't fixed the system. >> i feel like part of the problem at holidays you have fliers that are not used to flying, people with kids who aren't in the airport every day. it's like tourists in new york city. all of a sudden the airport doesn't work. >> amateurs. >> good luck with the snow. thank you. black friday may still be more than a week away but that is not stop something shoppers from lining up early to get the best deals. take this best buy outside cleveland. looks like every other best buy. one guy says he started in the line at 5:00 on monday with his tent. >> it's cold, windy, and sometimes it rains and snows. so, got to be careful. make sure you stay warm. >> got a mike crow with -- mice there. all the comforts of home, a bed,
12:11 pm
microwave, tv, heaters. the guy says his family takes turn waiting in line. >> can't a stay out here 24/7 or you start to smell. >> what is worth all of this? he says he is getting a television and maybe an xbox. maybe he doesn't have a compute center you can just order it right there on the computer, show up there at your house. a miracle. fox news attained a copy of the proposal that could think thousands of u.s. troops in afghanistan way beyond next year. we're talking ten more years. but first, the afghan president, hamid karzai, is asking tribal elders to sign off on the deal. thousands of tribal elders are . that's coming up. and we're following the breaking news out of north carolina central university. we told you earlier the campus
12:12 pm
is on lockdown, it has sent out an alert by twitter and other means that people should stay away from windows and doors and shelter in place. their language has changed now. officials at north carolina university say there's an active shooter on campus. officials say there have been no injuries but the campus lockdown is still going on for at least the better part of the last 35 minutes. we'll get updates from the fox news deck on this thursday, shepard smith reporting. we know we're not the center of your life, but we'll do our best to help you connect to what is.
12:13 pm
12:14 pm
12:15 pm
breaking news and good news to report. our local fox station and our news share station in raleigh and durham are reporting the lockdown is over at north carolina central university. the local abc station there had its chopper and they have a picture of man being taken into custody. something might have gone down. we can't confirm that but that's been reported by the local abc station in addition there were no reports at all through any of this that anybody had ever been hurt, just there was an active shooter. if you believe the pictures from abc 11, it's possible they have a suspect. the lockdown is over, the kids are all and sew are the faculty, nobody hurt. that's out of north carolina university in durham. >> get mortgage details about the proposed deal to keep u.s.
12:16 pm
troops in afghanistan for a long time. we have gotten a copy of the agreement. now it's up to the afghan tribal elders and political leaders to sign off on the proposal. the teal would keep u.s. forces in afghan for what is called support, even after the official combat mission is over at the end of this year. as so many had predicted throughout the course of this forever war, over the next few days afghan delegates are set to debate the draft and decide whether they want the united states troops to stay. their digs not the final word but president hamid karzai says he will stand behind whatever they choose. jennifer griffin with more now from the pentagon. i have been hearing for years from every kind of military person known to man, forget it. we will never leave afghan. now they're talking about ten more years up there. >> ten more years and bills of -- billions of dollars.
12:17 pm
up to 10 then troops there conducting not just training but also small counterterrorism operations. there are some sticking points, and president hamid karzai threw his u.s. counterparts a loop when he said he did not plan to sign this crucial security agreement that would protect u.s. troops if they do stay past 2014, that he didn't plan to sign it until after the april presidential election, an election in which he has to step down according to the constitution. the white house has already pushed back saying they expect an agreement to be signed by the end of the year. they need mat much -- that much time in order to plan for withdrawal of troops still in afghan. the state department saying this is not acceptable, this bait and switch that karzai pulled, and then karzai, at the same moment he was supposed to sell this agreement to the 2500 elders at the tribal meeting in kabul, ya,
12:18 pm
he uses the opportunity to say he doesn't trust the americans. so an incredible show by president karzai in kabul. >> he has been a joyous partner for all involved. you mentioned a bait and switch. what compromises did the united states have to make and there is a sense for whatever those compromises are might affect troops remaining? >> after interesting sect kerry for details yesterday he would not answer reporters at the state department. today we had to go online to the afghan foreign ministry's web site to find a copy of the agreement. they posted it online. the only -- looks like a pretty standard status of forces agreement. it does not look like the u.s. has had to give up anything on immunity. looks like the u.s. will have control -- will have the ability to try u.s. forces if they get into trouble over there. that won't be handed over to the afghans. u.s. contractors will not be covered by the status of forces
12:19 pm
agreement but dod officials tell me that's standard. 0 it's a a standard agreement. the one sticking point are night raids, and right now that language is being worked out. >> night raids, meaning we can operate under the cover of darkness if we feel like? >> and whether u.s. troops can be into homes during the counterterrorism operations. >> good to see you, five kids trapped for five minutes after their car sank in a frigid pond. >> cops say three million were held as slaves in a home. they've just been rescued. after 30 years. in captivity. one of those victims is nearly 70 years old. it is an extraordinary account of three decades of slavery. and it's coming right up. life's an adventure when you're with her.

12:33 pm
amends after millions of people lost their healthcare plan. is the next shoe dropping? >> certainly a concern inside the white house that they're trying to sort of turn the page on all of the defense they've been playing on health care, and what you're starting to hear from republicans as they hear these anecdotes about people losing doctors as plans change, they're going back to what the president said in 2009 and 2010, selling this law, by saying if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period. that's what he said about the health plans as well. you can keep them. that didn't turn out to be true. now republicans like ted cruz say this may be next. >> texas oncology, one of the largest oncology center in texas, announce it it's not going to participate in in obamacare. i have good friends who are cancer survivors and now can't go to their cancer doctors. >> white house officials have pushed back by saying that these plans change, even before the
