3:02 am
discuss the craziness that happened at the conclusion of brian'sç birthday. it's been written on the blogs. this fine young lady went crazy yesterday. it was a birthday celebration no one will ever forget and we'll tell you all about it. >> i have two things to show, something the crew gave me and something you gave me, which we have to review. the look in your eye at the end of your show is something i still can't get over. i called keith ablow. i said try to make sense of this keith. >> wait until you hear about it. this is really something. we've with been telling you about this terrorist group called boko haram out in afrhsa, how they killed an entire village. in the last couple of weeks they have kidnapped 300 young girls. they're going to sell them into slavery. they burned a bunch of boys. they burned down a village. it's all bad. and now word is because we did not place them on the terror list of officially
3:03 am
known terrorist groups, it is going to be harder to go after them. and who exactly made sure that they were not placed on the terror list? hillary clinton. >> she has enough going on. this can't be added to the list. question as well, can she cover this on twitter? she tweeted this week with the hash tag bring our girls back. >> that brought a lot of attention to this. everyone is lauding her saying isn'tpá great. >> and the rights of women and young girls, those are pillars of what she wanted to accomplish in her time at the state department. but right here what she didn't actually tweet, and perhaps because it was over 140 characters, was the fact that her own state department did not place boko haram on the list of terrorist organizations which would have forbidden authority to increase security to them, increase assistance to nigerian security forces in nigeria and perhaps could have
3:04 am
saved these girls earlier. >> here's the statement. it says there was a concern. and the reason why the state department did not do it, there was a concern thatç putting boko haram on the foreign terrorist list would be in fact, raise its profile, give it greater publicity, help with its recruitment and drive more assistance in its direction. there's all types of theories about how to deal with islamic extremists, which this group is, and they are listed as an al qaeda affiliate. so i don't think giving them additional publicity and credibility might be the number h-p one priority on the surface, especially the f.b.i. called me, the c.i.a. is on my voice mail, all these people are doing it. if you do it and you're in the state department, i feel pretty good i have good backing in washington. >> she did not take that advice. >> mr. carson's explanation on how it would raise their profile notç only with all of us but the bad guys as
3:05 am
well, that is crazy. it is audacious for hillary clinton -- keep in mind, and there are some of the people from that boko haram organization. for hillary clinton now to over the last couple of days to talk about how bad they are, given the fact that she could have done something a couple of years ago and did not and the fact that her big initiative last week was to help women and girls, there is a little hypocrisy going on. >> what is the theory if you continue to say it does not exist it won't be there? this once again proves that is not the case. >>ç we're sending people over there now. it is going to be a lot harder. even china has responded. >> we're sending 20 people over and it sounds like without guns. >> if anyone can, we can. but this is, again, something that was a spark early become full flames now. >> she's got a lot of on
3:06 am
her plate. yesterday she was here in new york city and sat down with robin roberts of abc news, and she was at the ford foundation, and she was asked about that pesky benghazi thing. you know those darned republicans, they keep bringing it up. here's what she had to say about answering all the questions regarding benghazi. listen. >> of course there are a lot ofç reasons why despite all of the hearings, all of the information that's been provided, some choose not to be satisfied and choose to continue to move forward. that's their choice. and i do not believe there is any reason for it to continue in this way, but they get to call the shots in the congress. >> darned republicans. >> so as lindsey graham says if she doesn't want to come and answer the questions, then she shouldn't run for president because there's going to be a lot of people asking the same questions in small towns in new hampshire and
3:07 am
big towns in florida. >> whenç asked why, and provide the explanation for the deaths of, vicious murders of four americans there in benghazi, she didn't want to be there. susan rice was sent with talking points, with a narrativ. that's where you get that quote of saying if she can't handle that, if she can't handle looking at the american people and telling the truth, how dare she consider herself qualified? >> trey gowdy is going to head up the benghazi select committee. he says he is going to call her. he has been receiving death threats as well. he said as long as they're not for my wife, i can handle them, as a former prosecutor. we want to know regarding benghazi, when will you be satisfied? what is it you want to get out of it? is it just for it to be over? is it to finally know about the security lapses or the connection with the whiteç house and it looks like a conspiracy coverup? e-mail us. facebook us. tweet us. >> or is it just that you
3:08 am
want these guys killed or captured. >> the families lost their loved ones that day, at least for them the truth shouldn't be so hard to get. >> heather nauert will be delivering the news. >> i've got a horrible fire to tell you about that police believe was intentionally set. there are new developments on this story. was someone trying to kill a famous tennis player? investigators trying to figure out who set the fire to james blake's house in tampa that left four people dead? and did theyç know that he was not home at the time? that he was renting out his mansion? dramatic 911 calls were released. listen. >> i was walking my dog and the house exploded. oh my god! >> calm down and take a deep breath. >> it is just so horrible. >> police say there were four victims in the house, two parents and their two teenage children. they were brutalized before the fire was set.

3:11 am
about 26 minutes if we walked into the e.r. it's two times longer than that if you are a veteran of service and waiting in a v.a. hospital. >> right. startling information, an accusation that 40 veterans died as a result of waiting in the hospitals. the v.a. department didn't get to them. and those lists thatç were destroyed providing the path to death when it comes to those that have given their life so bravely for this nation. so why is this the case? really it's about a promise that's made. >> 23 veterans throughout the country they say at least have lost their lives waiting for medical care. >> the government is not being forthcoming with statistics on this so "the washington times" took a look. they reviewed eight veterans affairs inspector general reports. it shows the average wait at v.a. e.r.'s can be ten hours. ten hours for the vets to
3:12 am
wait. jim nickolson who used to run veterans affairs says this is awful. >> the real serious term is young americans who we depend on to enlist, men and women who come into our armed services, we have a compact with them that we're going to take care of them if they're hurt while serving urbgs and that's the -- serving us and that's the v.a.'s job, if they become cynical about that they are not going to show up for the rigor we put them through to show up in uniform. >> by the way, the guy who runs it, shinseki, even though the american legion is calling for him to go, also a number of republicans are saying he's got to resign, he says i'm not goingç anywhere. and the white house says we're standing behind him. he's doing a great job. >> jeff miller, who chairs the committee on house affairs says this proves

then is i met with the principal monday, this pastç monday, and i asked him about somebody reading the passage so we all know what we're talking about at the school board meeting that was scheduled for this past monday evening. and he didn't want to read it. he said it had to be put in context and all the nuances have to be communicated. i said put it in context, talk about the themes and then read it. finally he, the president at gill ford high school told me in private, he said i don't feel comfortable reading it. my retort was if you don't feel comfortable reading it, why are you requiring my 14-year-old daughter to read it. it is pageç 313 of the book 19 minutes. from my perspective it should not be in the hands of a 14-year-old. if other parents want them to read it, i don't have a problem with this. at the same time i don't need this to be thrust upon my family.
3:48 am
i feel like they violated my family and it continues. >> your daughter is 14 years old. the egg was already out of the shell. it is not as though there was a permission slip that went home. i would have read the material. most parents have a right to do that. i actually couldn't sit here on this program and read it verbatim because it is so explicit, definitely not fit for children, uncomfortable and graphic to say the very least. >> elisabeth, i was going to say that the editor ofç the local paper basically said -- and he's also the mayor of the town, ed engle said in quotation in the lincolnia sun, pretty much no paper in the country could print something like this. the idea that this is not fit to print in a daily paper, but the school board thinks it is appropriate to have this required reading.
3:49 am
even if it were required reading, if that is what the community determined, that's okay. but give us notice. real notice, realç consent. the school, the principal admitted that, he said there was notice in the past and now i find out there was no notice in the past. they said there was notice in 2007 when it was issued and i would like to see that notice because it was probably kind of no-notice notice. >> we hear so much about the need for fathers to step in and what happens when they don't. bill o'reilly has been greatly vocal about the effects of when a dad is not in the picture, how it can lead to devastating results, particularly young women. you as a father step in, you want to say my kid should have the right about reading this. do you feel your first amendment rights were null and void there, completely erase stph-d >> i totally think there is a first amendment isqu and my legal team will be
3:50 am
looking into this. i'm an attorney as well. i was licensed in new jersey for 20 years. there are serious issues here. there is no question this was the quintessential public forum, a school board. and they -- every indication is that two-minute rule was implemented just they don't answer any questions. they refuse to answer questions. there is no accountability. if you meet withç somebody, it is in private. no cameras, no people, no accountability. there's no question there is a first amendment violation here. they compounded it by arresting me for pointing out that it was a first amendment violation. now i'm being prosecuted by the state. i mean, there's violation after violation. rape.
3:51 am
this violation by the state, as far as i'm concerned -- >> i did read that, sir. we're going to stay on this. please let us know what's to come. we wish your daughter well. she's 14. stay with us here. thanks. >> thank you very much. i do a lot oresearch on angie's list before i do any projects on my home. i love my contractor, and i am so thankful to angie's list for bringing us together. find out why more than two million members count on angie's list. angie's list -- reviews you can trust.

president obama is sending a small team of u.s. military and law enforcement to nigeria to help recover almost 300 kidnapped school girls. the president says it's an opportunity for the world to bring down a terror organization. but judge napolitano says what about that? he joins us live right now. do you thi'k it's a good idea we get involved there? >> i don't think it's good idea that we get involved in nigeria. i don't think it's in our national security interest.
3:55 am
i think it establishes a terrible precedents. i say this with my heart bleeding, figuratively, over what's happened to these young women. now, i don't know if the government of nigeria is behind this, is afraid of these people, or is protecting them. but if we enter nigeria absent an invitation from the government, it's the legal equivalent of an invasion, whether we send the nypd, special ops. the president knows that. i honestly think, one of the rare times i'm going to say, this the president's heart is in the right place, but he has to think twice before he uses american power to solve what is basically a domestic police issue in that country. >> i saw on television yesterday, there are a number of democrat congressmen who are calling for the president to go and doñi whatever it takes, drones, whatever. where does that come from? >> i think it comes from their heart's aching over this situation where these young
3:56 am
women, god only knows what's happened to them, absolutely no equity, no benefit, no argument on the side of the bad guys and alt equity, all the sympathy is on the side of the women. but you have to think of the legal and geopolitical consequences of entering another country without a treaty justifying it, without the law justifying it and against the wishes of the authorities there. it's going to have unintended consequences we don't want to live with. >> it was big news yesterday. lois lerner was found in contempt of congress. we want to talk to you a little bit about the ramification of that. can you stick around? >> of course. >> more with judge napolitano coming up. also straight ahead, we're going to be talking about that and you saw brian's big birthday bash on the show yesterday. there it is right there. so what happened after the show and that cake? oh, my goodness. okay. that's not the crazy part. the crazy part comes later. stick around

good morning. today is thursday, may 8. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. they are vicious criminals accused of killing off entire villages and the white house wanted them designated as terrorists. but hillary clinton said don't use the t word. now the fallout of that decision ahead. and remember when president obama said this about the irs. >> no mass corruption? >> not even mass corruption. not even a smidgen of corruption. >> tell that to congress, the house. now charging lois lerner with contempt. is jail the next stop for her? and if you think things got heated on our set, wait until you see this. that's why we don't have a desk. what led to the table flipping fight seen around the world on
4:01 am
that tv show. this tv show has a motto and the motto is mornings are better with friends. >> this is bob eubanks from the newlywed game. you're watching fox "friends." whoopie. it's my favorite word. >> that is a good word. whoopie. >> you know what? i don't think lois lerner was saying whoopie yesterday. it was bad news for the administration. bipartisan households her in contempt of congress and they have, in a separate resolution, urged the department of justice to appoint a special prosecutor. republicans are hoping this would be a way for her to finally answer their questions about the targeting of conservatives. there were a number of democrats who voted against their own party. so this was bipartisan. >> one of the biggest things to happen is the judge is refusing tother sit-in. >> the judge here to help us with the legal agele and whether
4:02 am
she'll turn up in jail. what also is significant is some democrats say i have a probable with her taking the fifth and not transparent with the irs. >> politically it's significant that the democrats did this. so it doesn't look like it's one party ganging up on her because in reality, what she is accused of doing, accused of doing is abusing authority and tampering with the first amendment. that cuts both ways. nobody can favor that, republican or democrat. it's very complicated where she is legally right now. the house cannot prosecute her. the house can only ask the united states attorney for the district of columbia, a federal appointee, an obama appointee who works for attorney general holder, to prosecute her. >> the irony is that holder is quite familiar with being held in contempt. >> he was held in contempt by the house for the earn ma in which he subpoenaeded to subpoenas over fast and furious. this same u.s. attorney said i'm not going to prosecute my boss, not 'cause he's my boss, but because he has a claim of executive privilege.
4:03 am
he discussed these documents with the president. lois lerner does not have that claim. if she makes it, if she says i discussed that with the president, whole new ball game because you saw what he told bill o'reilly. not a smidge or smidgen. i'm not sure what he used -- of corruption. >> you're saying it would imply there was -- >> coordination between the irs and the president of the united states. her only defense is her statement, i didn't break the law. i followed irs regulation, is not a waiver, a giving up of her right to remain silent. candidly, case law goes both ways. some case law says you invoke your right to remain silence, you can't say anything else. if you say anything else, you've given up the right to remain silence. in other cases, a general denial is a general denial. >> if she didn't break the law, republicans say, she should have testified in fronts of them. what's extraordinary is it all started with an apology. out of nowhere she planted a
4:04 am
question and said i'm sorry about this. >> it's an effort to make herself look good. remember the movies where the mobsters used to read a statement, i'm not going to testify 'cause my lawyer told me i have a right to remain silent? that's what you have to do. you have to be sigh lentz persistently. if you say anything above that, you get yourself in trouble, like she did. i don't know where it's going to go, but my guess is that the u.s. attorney who refused to prosecute his boss will refuse to prosecute her. >> you know with a? darrell issa, who heads up the oversight committee on the house, a republican from california, he tweeted this out yesterday: unless president asserts executive privilege, there is no precedent for the u.s. attorney for dc to do anything but pursue this criminal case. #irstargetsing. >> that's a correct statement of the law. but we're dealing with a very, very, very political department of justice that will find some way to protect its own.
4:05 am
if they prosecute this lady, the statement that the president made to bill o'reilly will be germane to that prosecution. >> this is something that she does, cross party lines. everybody should be concerned about get to get bottom of the truth and admitting, at least giving some information out there. and nancy pelosi missed the boat. she was at a fund-raiser, but there were six democrats who voted for this, voted to hold lois lerner in contempt. >> you have a lot of purple and you have a lot of red states. >> keeping with the colors there. blue dog democrats there basically moderate, centrist democrats who have difficult reelections and don't wants to be perceived as sticking with the party line come november. i don't blame them. part of this is congress' fault. they give the irs a little bit too much leeway to invade
4:06 am
people's lives and scrutinize what they say. >> between benghazi and now the irs, it looks like the white house is on defense. >> i think so. and i don't know that the president can stick with that statement he made to bill. >> all right. judge napolitano, thank you very much. >> pleasure. >> if not, we'll call bill back in and change it. what i meant. >> pleasure. >> look who is over there with the headlines today. hello, mrs. nauert. >> hi, mr. judge. great to see you. i have some news to bring you. some disturbing news. coming out of the state of florida this morning, here is the question that investigatessors are asking: why would someone want to kill a mother, a father and two teenage children in their rented mansion in a ritzy part of tampa, florida? the home was owned by former tennis star james blake, but he wasn't there at the time. he had been renting it out. investigators say there was a fire that was intentionally set and that some sort of accelerant, possibly fireworks, were used. this is the 911 call that's been
4:07 am
released. take a listen. >> i was walking my dog and there was a house exploded. oh, my god! >> take a deep breath. okay? >> it's horrible! >> the four victims tentatively identified as 49-year-old darren campbell, his wife, kim, and their two teenage children, collin and meghan. they were in high school together. police say the victims were brutalized before that fire was set and that home in an exclusive area known for heavy security. we'll keep you posted on developments. the islamic terror group that has been terrorizing nigeria kills once again and this time possibly as many as 300 people in a nigerian village. this as we learn former secretary of state hillary clinton fought to keep the al-qaeda-linked terror group off the state department list of official terror organizations. under clinton, the state department repeatedly refused to go after the group now responsible for kidnapping hundreds of girls.
4:08 am
we've been telling you a lot about that story. that refusal was despite the urging from the f.b.i., c.i.a., and more than a dozen senators and congressmen. new overnight, the country of uruguay is offering to take some prisoners at gitmo. he says he will take them if washington agrees to let them live free. no response from the white house on this yet. the president of that country is set to meet with our president on monday. what do you think of that? no, this is not an episode of jerry springer. it's just an average day in the life of jordannian television. take a look at this. yeah. that fight was over freedom of the press. the guests traded insults and then started tearing apart that table. the host then had to end the
4:09 am
program. keep it going. those are your headlines. >> felt like that. >> that's unbelievable. >> you know what? actually there was some tension on the set yesterday. it was -- >> on the veranda. >> it was in the after the show show. we had guy fieri on from "diners, drive-ins and dives" and he was presenting brian with a birthday cake. i don't know if you heard about it. out of nowhere, elisabeth decided in the after the show show, you were going to take that cake and destroy it -- >> i don't recall any of that. >> i don't know who was in her ear or what took over her body. >> steve doocy. >> but this woman called in her survivor training and went after me like there was no tomorrow. >> my aim was a little off. >> then as weird as that got with her running down 48th street with this cake, out of nowhere came a stranger and it just got weirder. watch. >> it does have a scent of
4:10 am
licorice. it has a -- >> i can't believe it! look out, people! there's a crazy lady in high heels! look out! >> who is hiding brian? >> oh, my gosh! what happened? >> rock'n'roll! >> so what happened? so elisabeth is running by and that guy just grabs the cake out of her hands and smashes it into his face. >> it wasn't his birthday. >> no, it wasn't. and then he gave you a high five, which could have broken your wrist. >> it was behind the bush. i didn't know what else to do but hi five. when in doubt, give a high five. cake everywhere. >> i went over to the guy afterwards and i said, why did
4:11 am
you do that? he said nobody else had. as it turns out, this guy is a prankster from the opie and anthony show. that is an image off of their instagram where he went on in the studio to describe how he screwed up your birthday. >> right. >> he took your cake. >> right. i didn't even know what was happening. i'm on radio and i see this thing pop up on tv news and all of a sudden chaos broke loose. but the look in your eye, i don't know if someone said if you don't throw this cake at him you're going to be fired. so the speed you have is incredible. >> you gave a push and a jab there and a duck. you got out of it. >> elisabeth is unbelievablably creative. she made me this for my p birthday. the whole family. what's behind? >> this is, because of your 50th birthday, we took page 50 from your book and put the
4:12 am
secret 6 in many places to form a 6. kilmeade goes, why a 6? because the book is number one. it should have been a one. >> yesterday during the show, i get a card from the crew. look at this. this is from the crew who i never met in person. brian, in honor of your birthday, i want to show you a side you don't often see. >> of the crew. >> they showed me the back of their heads. >> our generous side. >> this will be great. i get to hang out with the crew. good job. thanks a lot. i appreciate it. that was creative. >> what a crazy party you had yesterday. >> right. as usual the party gets better when i leave. >> i tried to find you. steve made me do it. >> i did not make you do it. she did look crazy. >> team work here. >> coming up straight ahead. this french economist getting rock star status for preaching about income inequality.

it's beautiful. fox business senior correspondent, charles gas free know took a look at it. he says what about this book? >> it ain't beautiful. the last thing you want to say about this book is that it's beautiful. it's 700 pages. it's probable low the most 700 legubruius pages i ever read. karl marx in every other line. basically the world is rigged against the little guy. that income inequality is against the little guy and the only solution is socialist policy. i don't know who will be the irs here or collect the taxes. maybe the u.n. but he wants a global tax on anybody that makes more than $500,000 a year. you get taxed at 80%. >> with that global tax on people making more than half a million dollars, the juicy part
4:18 am
is that he would have the united nations running things. they would be the world cop. >> who would be the irs? it would have to be the united nations. so america, would have to give up its sovereignty to the united nations under this plan. >> government should adopt a global tax on wealth, progressive global tax on capital around 2%, punitive 80% on incomes above half a million dollars. also what's interesting is his call for that 80% tax rate is not to generate tax revenue. it's to level the playing field. are successful are closer, beat down to people at the othernd of the food chain. >> what his general thesis is there is no way for the poor and working class to move up because the rich have the game rigged. all they have to do is not invest in companies. they have to just invest in the
4:19 am
stock market and sort of make money out of the games of the stock market rather than investing in businesses to help grow, because market returns will always outpace the returns of gdp, thus the game is rigged against the people that have to live on the gains and gdp. >> all we have to do is look in our rearview mirror during the eisenhower years and jfk's administration. taxes were around, what, 85, 90% back then. it was jfk himself who said this is crazy. i got to cut them. >> right. >> and did he a little bit. reagan did a much bigger job. >> i'm not for income inequality. but let's be honest here, what he forgets and misses is that people go out and earn their money. bill gates, i don't like his politics, but he created microsoft. warren buffet created berkshire hathaway. the author makes it sound like these rich guys just happened to land -- millions of dollars happened outland in their laps. >> he's a french economist in

such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need, ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans. we got a fair,. my feeling is and you're like. iyou know, the salesman icomes over..., there's no buyer's remorse, you know. i'm happy with my purchase. it's the truth. when you're ready to buy a car, save time, save money, and never overpay. visit

4:46 am
committee for admissions at ucla. during that year, there was a significant drop in african-american admissions, like 20%. ucla implemented a new system which is called the wholistic system. then after implementing that system, african-americans admissions skyrocketed. almost doubled that year. and meanwhile, at the same time, they were touting the system, the reason it would increase african-american admissions, because it takes account of their socioeconomic disadvantages. but the strange thing i noticed, i was getting data 'cause i was on the committee, was that the other socioeconomically disadvantaged groups like latinos and vietnamese, which may be more socioeconomically disadvantaged among the applicants at ucla, their admission rates dropped. so something weird was going on. i asked for data from the admissions staff. they refused and in 2008, i resigned in protest from that
4:47 am
committee. >> so it was a denial of those in your findings that you thought was completely wrong. so you actually say here that the controversy surrounds this idea, that approximately 20% of the african-americans that ucla admitted would not have been admitted if it weren't for the racial differences? >> that's right. >> how can you prove that? >> well, one, when i resigned, ucla decided oh, we need to deflect attention from this professor resigning. so they did the equivalent of a blue ribbon commission. they hired a sociology professor at ucla and four years later, they released his study and this person did an honest job. if you look at the statistical analysis in his study, it shows that. now, he concludes that about 33% of the african-americans admitted would not have been admitted if it weren't for the racial preferences.
4:48 am
he also finds that asian americans were discriminated against. that if it weren't for the discrimination, 9% would -- their numbers would have been 9% higher. >> where is the pressure coming from, if this is indeed the case? >> you know, a lot of it is interest groups. just before the wholistic system was implemented, there was a big protest there, 2 to 300 students occupied the hallway outside the chancellor's office. i think it's also coming from the legislature. i hear rumors about that, we're going to decrease the uc budget if you don't increase diversity. the regents of the university, i have a quote in my book from the provost from the second command of the entire system said that yes, lots of regents are saying they're going to fire chancellors if they don't increase diversity. >> wow. we do have a quote from the ucla chancellor from a faculty meeting. several constituents cities of -- constituencies are
4:49 am
distressed. there is pressure on the numbers of underrepresented minors on campus are too small. so that was from 2008. highlighting their -- >> that was 2006. just before we implemented the wholistic system, chancellor abrams came to my committee and i don't know if you call it pressuring, but definitely lobbied our committee to change the system to a wholistic system. i might say after i resigned, the head lawyer for ucla denied what i said. i said that ucla implemented the wholistic system to increase the numbers of underrepresented minorities. everyone at that meeting was agreeing with that, including the chancellor. then after i said it in public, the head lawyer denied that. one thing i found with this, it's something like the little boy who says the king has no clothes. everyone knows the truth, but no one will say it.
4:50 am

5:10 am
do we make it that easy. the editor is like okay done. i can take lunch now. i was focusing on the waste. not on the pig. by the way, was cross eyed for some reason. when you have a mascot, at least make him look straight ahead. am i correct? >> didn't notice. >> the pig reps are calling in. let's move on from that to this. when you go to the emergency room, you need to see a doctor fast. people go to the emergency room because it's an emergency. as it turns out -- remember over the last couple weeks we've been telling you thousand looks like, according to an investigation, at least 40 veterans died waiting for care at that hospital, the v.a. hospital in phoenix. now according to research, it looks like the average vet waits twice as long than a civilian at a v.a. hospital to get emergency care. also according to the washington times, what they've done is they have looked at some of the inspector general reports for
5:11 am
the v.a. and it shows the average wait times at v.a. e.r.s can be up to ten hours. keep in mind, it's an emergency and they've got to wait ten hours. >> really just to think about why those in an instant would defend the lives of others can't have their lives protected medically whether they return here. when you hear what the former secretary of veteran affairs said about the long scope here what, this means in termination of the promise that we make to our military men and women, it will just get in your heart. >> real serious repercussion of that i think long-term is that the young americans who we deny depend on to -- pen on to enlist, we have a compact with them that we're going to take care of them if they're hurt while serving us. that's the v.a.'s job. if they become cynical about that, we're not going to have people show up and volunteer for the kind of rigor that we put

>> with the perfect movie season right around the corner, how do you make sure you're getsing the best deal for your money? joining me is fox news legal analyst and real estate guru, bob massi. good morning, bob. >> that's an ad that says purchase right there, isn't it? >> that will make us all feel better about the rest. when you're buying a home for the very first time or not, what should be on your brain right there? >> i have to tell you that this is not easy for any of us to do because you're caught up in the emotion of buying, but you literally have to switch your hat as to prospective seller saying the home that i'm buying, as much as i love it, what is the potential resystem value do you know the -- resale value down the road? when you're buying the home, you're excitessed, particularly first-time buyer, it fits everything. but you say to yourself, if you can, okay. i'm going to live here x amount of years, i hope. is it in the right place? will it have good resell value?
5:18 am
will it appreciate? the second thing that happens when you buy home, no matter what anybody owns a home we know, you're never done with the home, ever. >> no. >> are you making modifications that takes away the value of a resale? for example, someone may take their garage and convert it to a workout room. somebody may take part of an attic and put a closet in because their kids are growing up and they don't have enough space. those things that you do to your home when you're in it could take away the marketability of selling a home down the road. just keep that in mind. >> okay. so the mindset of being a seller when you're the buyer is probably really important. so look down the road. what about if the home needs repairs? how do you make sure that you're getsing the money back in the transaction, not left with a bunch of bills once you close? >> this is where a competent real estate broker or real estate attorney, if they're involved in the transaction, because you build contingencies into that offer that you make on that home. for example, if you do your walk-through and you find that
5:19 am
there is this wrong, this wrong, that wrong, this wrong, what do you is you put contingencies saying to the seller, listen, we want these things repaired before the close of escrow. but if they don't get repaired, we will retain a certain amounts of money after the close of escrow and you have 30 days to get it repaired, for example. if you don't repair it, we get to keep that money to fix those things. you got to make sure you get an estimate as to what needs to be fixed as a result of the walk-through so that you find out exactly what your damage could be. writing up this deal, you must think through the deal. you've got to think on the other side of the deal in order to protect yourself. that's why you need proper real estate broker agent that's competent in the area of buying a home. >> okay. then deal chasing, we want to address that briefly before we go 'cause it's important. >> well, i have a saying, a pig swallows and a hog chokes. the bottom line is, i cannot
5:20 am
tell you how many times i've seen good deals go by because people are so greedy, they want o grind everybody down so much that they literally blow the deal. let the next person make a little bit of money on your deal. buy it if you like it, if it's in the right place. don't worry that somebody in four, five, six years may make money. that's okay, too. >> you are the guru there. great advice. you want everybody to write in. we'll see you soon. >> thank you. coming up, mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the least transparent of them all? wait until you hear who is the best at misleading you. then, are washington politics really as cut throat as "house of cards"? could they be based on true stories? kevin mccarthy put that question straight to kevin spacey and his answer just might surprise you. ♪ ♪

5:41 am
plains. still early in the morning and dallas and kansas city, you're in the 70. in chicago, this is your current temperature as we head out the door, 68 degrees. very mild out there. that's a bad sign because that means that as the storm system heads into this area, it will have the fuel to fire up showers and thunderstorms. we do have the potential for severe weather coming up later today across parts of texas, up into wisconsin and minnesota. that area shaded in red right there across iowa, southern parts of minnesota, that's the greatest risk area for potentially violent weather. we could see long-track tornadoes today as the storms fire thumb afternoon and evening and eventually by friday, the storm continues moving eastward and anywhere from arkansas up into indiana, you could be looking at some severe weather. we'll keep track of it. let's head over to you, brian. >> all right. another case of thunder causing a blackout. russell westbrook and kevin durant playing lights out basketball. the pair combining for 63 points in game 1 against the clippers.
