tv   The O Reilly Factor  FOX News  May 1, 2014 8:00pm-9:01pm PDT

8:00 pm
before we go we hope you'll record "hannity" the series. start your day with ainsley and fox and friends team 6:00 to 9:00. thanks for joining us we'll see you back here tomorrow night. the o'reilly factor is on. tonight. >> the point is we should have tried. that's another saying goes, always move to the sound of the guns. >> but the u.s. military did not try to save the american ambassador to libya. today, a congressional company tries to find out why. we will tell you what happens. >> clarence thomas saying weighs an uncle tom, what did you mean by that? that certainly wouldn't be, you know, appropriate if it was coming from somebody who was white. >> but i'm black. >> a congressman from mississippi called supreme court justice clarence thomas an uncle tom. where is the media outrage? maybe the guy should own a basketball team. laura ingraham is on it. >> had you a guy who repeatedly raped a 14-year-old girl.
8:01 pm
and you gave him just 30 days in jail. can you explain that please? >> also ahead, the supreme court of montana overturns outrageous sentence for a child rapist embarrassing the judge who gave it we will update you on that. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the benghazi story keeps getting bigger. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. today, retired brigadier general robert lovell testified before the house oversight committee about why the u.s. military did not respond at all to the terror attack in benghazi that killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya. general lovell was in germany awaiting orders to strike at the terrorists, orders that never came. >> what we did know quite early on is that this was a hostile action.
8:02 pm
this was no demonstration gone terribly awry. to the point of what happened, the facts led to the conclusion of a terrorist attack. the afri-con j 2 was focused on attribution. the attacks became attributable very soon after the event. >> so that means the u.s. military, the cia on the ground in libya, and pretty much everyone else directly involved with the benghazi attack knew it was not a spontaneous demonstration within hours. yet, as we proved yesterday, the obama administration created a fiction that the attack was a reaction to an anti-muslim videotape. the cover was blown off that deception this week when a memo by white house advisor ben rhodes was released through the freedom of information act. the memo clearly says that ambassador susan rice was prepped to tell the world on
8:03 pm
television that a videotape incited the murders in benghazi. incredibly, incredibly, even after the memo became public, white house spokesman jay carney denied it was even about benghazi. >> why did it take a court case for you to release this? >> john. i can say again and again and i know you can keep asking again and again, this document was not about benghazi. >> but that's not true. the freedom of information filing, which produced the memo finally, specifically cited correspondence about benghazi. the "wall street journal" editorialized today, quote: mr. carney still insisted ms. rice had relied on points about the benghazi attack that were produced by the cia. he must think the press core is stupid.
8:04 pm
yarn may think the press corps is stupid. he knows the press corps doesn't care and that's why he says these outrageous things. he knows the coverage will be minimal, except on fox news. last night, cbs evening news didn't cover benghazi. nbc did a 30 second reader. abc did a report with jonathan karl, the man you saw there who gave carney a hard time, that was 10 minutes into the broadcast. abc should have led with it most newspapers ignored or manipulate mizeed the story, -- minimized same thing as yesterday. let me break it down again. the u.s. military made no attempt to defend the americans under siege because they were not asked to do so. >> what specifically did the state department, what have they done or what prevented you from doing that. >> well, it's not what they did in that particular situation, it's what they didn't do. they didn't come forward
8:05 pm
with stronger requests for action. >> that means then secretary of state hillary clinton has some splaining to do. but so does president obama. remember, he is the commander and chief. the military cannot move without his order. and he obviously didn't give it. why? the general is as confused as i am. >> we didn't know how long this would last when we became aware of the distress nor did we completely understand what we had in front of us. >> so that means that the attack could have been larger. the military didn't know. and forces didn't mobilize to save the people under siege? that's shocking. see, that's what this story is all about. the failure of the u.s. government to protect americans under fire in benghazi. and then after the fact trying to say oh the killers weren't organized terrorists. are we all getting this. but, again, the national media won't cover it.
8:06 pm
does it get any worse than that in our democracy? talking points is angry. the obama administration was completely derelict in the benghazi terror attack and was dishonest in the aftermath. and the national press doesn't give a damn? disgraceful. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction. joining us from boston colonel david hunt and from washington lt. ralph peters analyst. the chairman of the house armed services committee, all right? buck mcken none, is he a republican, all right? republican congressman from california. he says that lovell, the man you just heard, the general over in europe in charge of the afri-con situation. didn't have reliable insight into operational options available during the benghazi attacks. plk ken none basically saying ignore this guy. what do you say colonel peters. >> i don't reads it that wait a minute general
8:07 pm
lovell, who is a j 2, central intelligence in afri-con never claimed. i heard in his testimony. he said he did not know exactly what options were available militarily. but what he did know, what every man and woman in uniform, what every man and woman who ever wore a u.s. military uniform knew is you do all you can to rescue americans under fire. and, you know, you just can't blame this on the military, bill. as you know, our military cannot act independently against a sovereign state. >> i was going to ask you that the military in europe where the forces would have to come from, colonel hunt, they couldn't mobilize or do anything without orders from washington, correct? >> yeah, only the president of the united states could have given the order. we had our special forces unit in crow eight shah: the president never gave the order. don't know why yet. but, clearly the secretary of state is responsible up to this thing the fire fight
8:08 pm
starts. then the president has to give the order. he doesn't. we have the best military in the world. been in comment combat for 11 years. never told people died because of it. >> defense secretary is panetta. he has been hiding from. this he has got to be held accountable too, colonel peter, right? >> well, you know, i think leon panetta was not -- he is probably ashamed of where he stood in all of this. >> that's why he is hiding because is he ashamed? >> well, i suspect so. let's ask pa leon panetta. >> you can't ask him because is he hiding. >> he is hiding, got it there is a bigger issue here. in that this administration despises the military. i can tell you from personal experience, bill, that at state there is a hard core lefty cadre who look thes at our military as bunch of a blue collar and dumbies. >> come on, bill, give me 15 seconds. >>, will are the, go.
8:09 pm
>> our state department prior to this had actually pushed u.s. marines and soldiers out of libya. preferring to trust the security of our personnel on the ground to local libyan militias. rather than to our troops. >> okay. and on top of that. on september 11th. september 11th of all all's of the year. there is no heightened security. blame this on state and obama. but don't blame our military. >> it's even worse than that even if what you say is true, colonel and i think most people believe what you tell them. even if that's true. when the shooting starts and the brigadier general in germany says we don't know how bad this could get. i mean, then you have to mobilize right then and there. colonel hunt. correct? >> yes. what i'm telling you is we had forces close enough to effect the battle. first of all -- i'm sure if
8:10 pm
panetta can be called back to testament the other person testifying is the martin dempsey who also is covering this up by using -- the point is the military is capable of doing this. they weren't ordered to do it. now playing catch up time and people still continue to lie about this. >> let's just go over the key questions now. the key questions is. i didn't believe they are anybody, from the evidence we have seen, said don't do anything. but there wasn't anybody who said do something. that had to come from president obama through leon panetta. you know, the chain of command is very small. president, panetta, to the guys in europe. it didn't happen. >> bill, in a case like this. the white house -- the military would have wanted to go. the white house would have said stand down. >> now that would be huge. >> that will still come out the rule is this, bill. even if you do not think there is chance in hell you
8:11 pm
can rescue those americans you try. you go after it. >> that's what the brigadier general. >> was put on a short leash. >> absolutely. so everybody is clear. i want everybody to be clear about this. you have to pull in dempsey and panetta and if someone tells you not to get a rescue mission up and running this is a simple question he that these two men have to answer. is that correct? is that where we are? >> that's exactly where we are. the president allegedly-yeah, that's exactly where we are. >> i want everybody to be clear we take it step-by-step. gentlemen, thank you. next on the rundown, white house correspondent ed henry confronts jay carney today. we will show you what happened after these messages. t!

story. growing benghazi scandal. chief white house correspondent ed henry had this to say jay carney smoking gun memo. >> not about benghazi, why turn it over in a benghazi suit? >> you would have to ask state department about their process for responding to foia requests. again, -- you you can just read it and then decide for yourself as many people have now said and written like this is a conspiracy theory -- >> group comes in and says we want benghazi documents. the administration says this is not a benghazi document so we are not turning it over. >> i don't know. like this is a state department foia requests. >> on 9/12 you were asked about benghazi and whether it's premeditated you said it's quote too early for us to make that judgment. i know this is being investigated. we are working with the libyan government to investigate the incident. you were being cautious, investigation here. that's 9/12. enwoo why then on 9/14 is ben rhodes writing email that is making judgments this was inspired by a video
8:16 pm
why is it that we just don't know we. >> do you need a copy of the cia talking points? read them out. >> only thing that refers to benghazi is the cut and paste from the talking points which much to your disappointment and your boss' disappointment turned out to be produced by the cia. joining us from washington is ed henry. the white house is trying to say the memo does not directly pertain to benghazi and still falling back on the cia told us it might have been a spontaneous demonstration. they are going to stick to that story no matter what, right? >> right. >> meanwhile you heard in jay carney's own answer he said the part of the email that does mention benghazi says. this it does mention benghazi. maybe the vast majority is not about benghazi but part of this email was about benghazi and it was turned over by the state department which jay carney sort of sloughed off and said i don't know the state department procedure. the state department is part of this president's administration. they are not going to move forward without some sort of agreement on that.
8:17 pm
so they are not some rogue agency and so for them to respond to a lawsuit on benghazi by releasing this eye mail suggests that this is the president's own state department. not some republican thought this was about benghazi, so bottom line is they are pushing back on this but it raises sharp questions why there was a congressional subpoena out there for many many months about benghazi documents and the president, secretary of state kerry and others osaid we have turned over all the documents, maybe they didn't. >> they didn't obviously because judicial watch had to get this one when you you guys are having lunch in the white house little commissary or whatever you do. is it a topic of discussion how many in the national press simply don't want to cover this story? >> it comes up. and other reporters will, you know, kind of tease me about the idea that this is a fox story and what about benghazi that we're going to just shout that at the president randomly, it becomes a back and forth.
8:18 pm
>> do they really believe it though? do they believe it's a fox story? >> there are many people in the press corps who believe it is a fox story. >> really? >> it's not important that the u.s. military didn't mobilize to save an american ambassador that it's it not important that the obama administration mislead the world and they still haven't said that we made a mistake? >> people are going to have to defend their own questions or lack of questions in the briefing room, but i would note the last two days, john karl of abc news, major garrett of cbs news. jim accosta asking similar questions to the ones you just plays that i asked. what did jay carney do. he went after me and fox and said you and your bosses haven't been able to prove a conspiracy theory as if i'm personally pushing this which i take offense at because i'm not. you are saying that has traction inside. >> that is my point if you are attacking one of the folks and saying this is some crazy conspiracy
8:19 pm
theory. >> are they that dumb? are your colleagues at the white house that stupid. >> check your transcripts and see how many people follow up. i know there were folks in the front row pushing on this. there are others who haven't asked the question at all. has been it's not going to go anywhere. i don't know where this story leads. and i certainly don't believe in conspiracy theories. >> you mentioned major garrett. former fox news correspondent. >> now at cbs. >> cbs news didn't do anything last night on signature broadcast they didn't mention it? >> interesting. he asked about it at the briefing today. >> he didn't get on. and that coupled with sharyl attkisson saying hey, i investigated. i had stuff they wouldn't put it on. >> i don't run cbs news. >> neither do i. isn't it curious? isn't it curious? >> it's interesting but, you know what? i'm focused on my job and i'm going to keep answering the questions. >> who is running cbs news. >> jeff fakinger and david rhodes. >> who is david rhodes. >> used to work at fox news,
8:20 pm
he is related to ben rhodes. >> is he a brother. >> they are both honorable people we should note. >> i'm not casting aspersions and certainly mr. fager is stop of the line. >> um-huh. >> something is going on. all right, ed. directly ahead. should all americans be required to have ids or is that violation of privacy and even worse a voter suppression move? and then later u.s. and then later u.s. congressman calls .yea dulcolax tablets can cause cramps but not phillips. it has magnesium and works more naturally than stimulant laxatives. for gentle cramp free relief of occasional constipation that works! mmm mmm live the regular life.

8:24 pm
vote? >> left says there is no voter fraud. >> voter i.d. fraud does not take place in the voting booth it happens when you register to vote. >> much more likely to be killed by a hippopotamus than you are to see in person voter fraud. this is nonsense. >> voter fraud is a red herring. >> there is not a crisis in voter fraud. >> well, that's interesting because according to a new report from the virginia voters alliance at least 164 people voted in two states, maryland and virginia on presidential election day 2012. and there are scores of other voter fraud cases being investigated all across the country right now. yet, the "new york times" says, get: such voter fraud is basically nonexistent. the real point is to deter from the polls significant numbers of democratic voters, particularly minorities and the poor unquote. so the "new york times"-poses i.d. card to vote. but the paper supports a new york city photo i.d. card
8:25 pm
that would give illegal aliens quasilegal status. benefits for card holders are obvious. i.d. would make it vastly easier to navigate through life. unquote. so we are all clear, the "new york times" doesn't want voter ids but does want i.d. cards for illegal aliens so their lives will be easier. with us now andrea tantaros doe host of the five. and james carville. do you see a contradiction in the "new york times" stance. >> i'm not defending "new york times." voter fraud is a problem that barely exists. and the head of the pennsylvania republican party, majority leader pennsylvania house said the reason that they passed this was so romney could win the state. everybody knows what this is. >> i don't know what it is. i mean, i know i'm not as smart as you are. i think it's just a logical request is says who are you? hi, who are you?
8:26 pm
>> >> there is not a voter problem. >> i just gave you the stats, okay, man? >> the stats are are the bush justice department. they investigated with the fbi and everybody between 2002 and 2005. out of 197 million votes cast, they were able to secure 2 convictions. that's .0000123. it is an inif as at -- ticimal problem it's not objective outfit. >> sure it is. they produced today back it up. the national i.d. card is not -- >> -- you are saying this is not a partisan group in virginia? >> i'm saying that their data has not been questioned by anyone. >> bush justice department 197,000,026. >> i heard it now, an i.d. card to vote also can be used in employment. >> that's right?
8:27 pm
social security fraud. all of the other things. and it will come and have to come because of the massive amount of fraud and entitlements. but let's get back to the "new york times" question that carville dodged, all right? they want the voter i.d. for the illegal aliens. >> that's right. >> they don't want the voter i.d. for the polling place. >> it doesn't make any sense. yeah. they want a municipal i.d. they don't want people to have to be able to use it in any other polling place? it doesn't make any sense. the stats that you quoted, bill, let's take them on their face. let's say it's this minimal problem. there have been 83 murders in new york city out of 8 million. are the liberals going to argue that murder is not a problem. i think this points to a bigger issue that james and his buddies are nervous that they have to gin up a base about voter fraud and oppression saying it doesn't exist when we know james we know it is this. running into the mid terms defending fraud. you are defending fraud.
8:28 pm
>> let's be fair to carville he is not defending. >> he doesn't want to prevent the crime. >> why the leader of the house republicans in pennsylvania said we did this because romney can now. >> i don't know who that is carville. >> you can point to crazy people anywhere. it's massive amount of entitlement fraud every citizen should have i.d. card. and that would cut down on fraud and a lot of different areas. and it will happen. >> it is barely existent problem. >> sad is he defending it. really sad the left is defending this issue. doing it to get votes. municipal cards so illegal immigrants can can get healthcare and social satisfied this isthese other the difference between the left and the right. we do not make excuses for crimes and fraud. we try to fix it. >> thank you. plenty more ahead as the factor moves along this

language, that certainly wouldn't be appropriate if it was coming from somebody who was white. >> but i'm black. >> so it makes it okay? >> well, i mean, you are asking me the question. and i'm giving you the response. >> joining us now from washington radio talk show host laura ingraham. obviously what the man said is terrible. it didn't receive nearly the attention that donald sterling got for his comments. why do you think that is? >> well, bill, i think in part number one the media as you pointed out in regards to the benghazi case last night. look, the media, they have a world view and the world view is that there is a lot of grievances out there that minorities have, the system is rigged against them. so they have to advocate on behalf of causes and stories that i think shed light on their more compassionate world view on the issue of racial harmony and justice. so for a conservative, someone who is an originalist and is understanding of the constitution like justice
8:43 pm
thomas for whom i clerked, he doesn't make sense to them and so rather than take him on on the issues and i would submit, bill, they don't really know much about justice thomas' jurisprudence. they don't know how he was ruled on sixth amendment confrontation. liberal justices they don't know what he thinks about the fourth amendment or had very positive reviews from unlikely liberal sources. so they don't know that but, they do know that the man himself represents a rejection of much of what they believe and they don't want to debate him. they can't debate him because his life stands in contrast to many of the things that they espouse. i would say the fact that he doesn't think you should use racial preferences in hiring or education, that's an anathema to them. if someone is going to attack them like tom did. worse than uncle tom. doesn't like black people or doesn't like blacks. horrible thing to say.
8:44 pm
it was demeaning and should be censored for what he said frankly. >> another situation in montana 14-year-old girl raped by 49-year-old man. the judge bagh gave the rapist 30 days in jail. just to make it even worse. the victim killed herself. so we sent watters out there. roll the tape. >> you had a guy who repeatedly raped a 14-year-old girl. and you gave him just 30 days in jail? can you explain that, please? >> 15 years suspended. >> but 30 days in jail. you think that's an appropriate sentence, judge? what if that had been your daughter? >> well, now, the montana supreme court has overturned that sentence saying that bagh is a complete idiot. did wrong on every single legal level. and now there is going to it be a new judge and a new sentence. this is one of the biggest repudiations of a sitting judge i have ever seen, laura.
8:45 pm
>> yeah, i think you are right, bill. the supreme court sending it back to a totally different judge for new sentencing, clearly we are going to see something done here in the sentencing that fits the crime. i mean he wasn't legally authorized to allow so much in the way of time served. that was completely counter to the way the sentencing law runs in montana. i think the supreme court was also obviously under a lot of pressure from a variety of victims' groups, women's groups. and i think particularly disgusting about this is when the -- lower court judge said something like well, the girl she wasn't totally cull panel but she had some level of understanding of what was going on. >> this judge was just despicable and we are glad we could expose him. we are glad we did it. he could get this rapist could get 100 years. >> 100. a similar case where the judges need to be judged and monitored is happening down in texas it where another judge just today the story
8:46 pm
just percolating out there sentenced a rapist to some time served and then community service, which includes community service at a rape crisis center. so people down in texas are going nuts about the rape crisis center. >> we will get into that next week. >> unbelievable. >> somebody has got to watch these people. it's outrageous. once again, the little girl who was raped by this guy committed suicide. >> she is dead. >> it's sick. i'm glad you were on this case from the beginning. thank you. >> you are welcome, laura. thank you. up next bill o' poll question about sterling. what would you do to him? force him to sell the team. fine him? suspend him from the nba but let him back? we will give you the results tomorrow. on deck, did you see that off the clippers story harry reid attacking the washington redskins football team. right back with it. guy: hey captain obvious, watch this!
8:47 pm
captain: when i'm looking for a hotel with a wet pool, i go to you can get up to 50% off with their private sales. that man's privates are no longer private.
8:48 pm
trwith secure wifie for your business. it also comes with public wifi for your customers. not so with internet from the phone company. i would email the phone company to inquire as to why they have shortchanged these customers. but that would require wifi. switch to comcast business internet and get two wifi networks included. comcast business built for business.
8:49 pm
8:50 pm
back of the book segment tonight, did you see that. we begin with senator harry reid controversy around donald sterling as we know sterling is finished and re person how the leadership of the national football league, the nfl, that money making machine, wonder if they have taken notice of the nba's dee action, how longer will it do nothing as the team inflicts so much pain. >> here to help us out, you know, what, this is so absurd, it's almost impossible to believe that the senate majority leader. >> yeah. >> the washington redskins, now, i understand some people may be offended.
8:51 pm
i understand that i'm a bar -- barbarion for not being offended. >> i find it bizarre he's taking this much time and energy with the gdp number. nonetheless, this is what harry reid decided he wants to focus on now. the united nations, 1,000 americans in upstate new york are upset. there are a number of native american groups don't have a problem. it was named in 1933 for a coach who was native american and was proud. >> do you know what the red skin's theme song is? >> no. >> hail to the redskins. >> it's secelebrating. >> anyway. >> yeah, i don't what to belabor it. >> we have a brawl between chris
8:52 pm
christie and the governor of colorado. >> see if you want to live in a major city in colorado where there are head shops popping up in every corner and people playing into the airport just to come and get high. you know, to me it's just not the quality of life we want to have in new jersey and there is no tax revenue worth that. >> i love new jersey. my wife came from new jersey, true american but they have their own challenges. colorado 300 days of sunshine, four of the ten startup cities in the country. >> any fallout from the little -- >> i mean, there could be if chris christie decides to run for a national office, the folks in colorado will have that replayed, no doubt. >> that's true. >> the colorado governor said he'll bring in tax revenue but
8:53 pm
will spend $99 million in substance abuse -- >> you're not even going to clear that because there will be so many social problems to drain it. he was opposed to legalize marijuana, i want to point that out. he didn't want it at all. the second thing is, you're going to have to spend some money watching the fourth graders selling pot because -- >> instances of fourth graders bringing pot and guess who they got it from? >> grandma and grandpa. >> i get letters from the stoners, dude -- you're not getting this, even little children know marijuana is socially acceptable. >> and it's worth something at school. you can trade it for a candy bar. >> and grammy and pappi get stoned and leave it on the couch and the little kid comes in and gets it. there is a reason why we're posing this insanity here. i'm never going to get through
8:54 pm
to the crew. it's not worth the money and i think colorado and washington state will eventually see that. stone cold sober when she's on the factor. >> when i'm here. >> yes, she is. factor tip of the day, putting beyonce against me. the tip moments away.

8:57 pm
george, you nailed the coverup to the wall. i believe the national media is in it. after yesterday's benghazi press blackout, no honest person can say the media is not a problem. o'reilly, the efforts by you and karl rove were clearly driven by political motives, not concern for the four murdered americans. ron parker, seattle. if you think you can raise animosity toward president obama and hillary clinton you're wrong. you're right bill, saying americans don't care about benghazi is insulting. hey, buddy, take a breath, you're going to have a heart attack on tv. your quest to force your opinion down everyone's throat is nuts. first of all, i'm glad i'm your buddy, judy.
8:58 pm
i stated my case with passion, no passive aggressive stuff here. paul, new york city on the director of media relations at the associated press, must defend our reporter matt lee, the story he was referring to about a possible advance warning on benghazi was wrong. sorry if i promoted it in the wrong way but as you know, my remarks were brief and none specific. mr. o'reilly, here say fun idea, bring the bolder-fresher tour in england. i would love to do a show for you guys. in the meantime join miller and me in honolulu. you have to fly from monochester to honolulu on may 10th. wouldn't that be fun? rapid city july 25th, fargo july 26th. tickets make great mother's day, father's day gifts. robert little, bill, i gave my 11-year-old son the last days of jesus. he read it in one day.

good for him. the adult book still doing great, we thank you-all. finally tonight, the factor tip of the day. as you know, i cite sized beyonce for putting out stuff that may harm unsupervised children, especially young girls. many slashed me for saying that but it's true. today this happened. >> real quickly, we have a poll where people agreed with bill o'reilly or beyonce. they chose overwhelmingly bill o'reilly. >> we should say when we put the poll up, we included the music video. if you look at the images -- >> it's hard to argue it's not really, really hyper sexual -- >> that's what it is about. cheers to the tmz crew. appreciate the honesty. that is it for us tonight. please check out the fox news factor website, different from spout out about the factor o'reilly at, o'reilly at
