show, those 16 giant character balloons. the question will continue to be will the winds stay low enough to let these things launch? 20 mile an hour consistent winds, gusts up to 34 miles an hour is the threshold. higher than that and they cannot go. look at those winds across the northeast and we are getting up in that range, new york city, central park, we saw consistent winds gusting into the upper 20s and that is getting closer to that threshold. look at the next graphic and that will be the forecast across the entire country. it is just about that wind. if you're in the west, still big heavy snow will linger through your thursday forecast. the middle of the country a dry, sunny, not too bad and in new york city temperatures are going to be a lot of sunshine along the parade route today so i think the forecast is going to look pretty good. it will all come down to these winds, something we will watch

meadows tells jillian turner republicans intend to call for the resignation of adam schiff. they think the evidence in the report is so damning it makes clear adam schiff is failing in his oversight duties of the intelligence agencies, that could be a tough argument to make because republicans, not adam schiff or democrats were in the majority at the time of the alleged offenses, suggesting republicans will try to argue he had insight into how the fisa application process was being managed by officials and the obama administration. shannon: big news even when washington is home for the holidays. a fox news alert, north korea firing at least one identified projectile overnight. the south korean. announcing the launch but not confirming what kind of projector was fired or where it landed. it comes is the us and north

>> [speaking spanish] >> we are talking the top political turkeys of 2019, beto makes the list but who else? >> you have been sharing with us what you are thankful for. raymond says he's thankful for his family and friends. >> patrick is grateful to serve his south carolina state guard unit and for his wife. keep sending your pictures, we will be sharing them all morning long. ♪ i've got plenty to be thankful for]
>> michael bloomberg slamming donald trump for his immigration policies. the former new york city mayor calling for increased immigration. >> i the president's border promises a major reason he was elected. >> the other how do i text thee, kristin tate, good morning, thank you for joining us on a holiday. let's get straight to it, how do you feel about what michael bloomberg had to say about immigration? >> americans on both sides of the aisle tend to be compassionate reasonable people who think immigration makes this country a better place but there are many who are concerned that our compassion has been taken advantage of and we have been stripped of the right to decide who can and cannot come into the country. the conservatives i talk to and i know are not necessarily against more immigration as a general principle but they are concerned the country can't afford to absorb millions more people for net consumers of taxpayer-funded services.
in 2017 the group fair found illegal immigrants cost taxpayers $116 billion just that year alone. if you taxpayers are on the hook to provide services like medical, justice, education and all these services for illegal immigrants in the country and millions of children. there are real concerns here and a lot of democrats including michael bloomberg just refuse to acknowledge them. >> isn't this just another example of a politician conflating purposefully illegal immigration with immigration when we are a nation of immigrants, we were founded by immigrants and illegal immigration is much different than regular through the proper means immigration? >> exactly right. most americans agree with these principles, this is easy stuff to get your flight around. we are a nation of laws. we want more people to come to this country to contribute to america, that is what makes this place so great but you need to
do it the right way and follow the law and the rules on the books. >> from michael bloomberg to elizabeth warren we go and some polls including recent quinnipiac poll shows that her campaign is in a freefall down 14 points over the past month and she responded to that. take a listen. >> the same answer it has always been. i don't do polls. i'm out here fighting every day on behalf of working families. i'm talking about what is broken in this country and how to fix it and building a grassroots movement. >> elizabeth warren so she doesn't do polls. should she be worried? >> she should be worried. people are starting to wake up to the fact that elizabeth warren has been lying about how she's going to pay for her big government programs like
medicare for all. it is laughable to suggest you're going to put these trillion dollar big government programs in place and not raise taxes on the middle class. even bernie sanders has been telling supporters that he put in place medicare for all, for everyone making $30,000 a year and elizabeth warren so she can do this with a wealth tax. that would bring in $2.75 trillion according to her own advisers. that wouldn't even cover three years of current deficits let alone free college or medicare for all. people are starting to wake up to this and realize problems. >> could be aside for biden and buttigieg. could be moving a little more to the center. thanks for getting up with us on turkey morning. carley: thanksgiving is a day set aside for showing gratitude but how do you remain grateful all year long? pastor robert jeffers with a message all-americans need to hear next.

shannon: good morning and welcome back on turkey day, thanksgiving is a day for showing gratitude to those who mean the most in their life much of the act of giving thanks only be reserved for once a year? >> joining us to explain how showing appreciation every day can better our lives, senior pastor at the first baptist church robert jeffers. happy thanksgiving. >> happy thanks giving to you all.
>> what is your thanksgiving message this year? >> thanksgiving doesn't have to be reserved for one day a year celebration in which we gorge ourselves on turkey and football. it out to be aware life. there all kind of studies that show that people who express gratitude regularly have a 35% decrease in depressive symptoms, they enjoy a 25% increase in quality of their sleep, they even tend to exercise more than 40 minutes more a week than others which is important especially after today and to make gratitude a regular part of your life there are three things you can do. first of all before you drift off to sleep at night just meditate on two positive thing god did for you during the day,
there was a great study that showed people who focus on positive things rather than negative before they drift off to sleep have better quality-of-life. secondly, send a note or a text every day to somebody who has done something good for you just to express gratitude. finally i would say today after the food and the relatives are gone just sit down by yourself for ten minutes and make a list of everything in your life to be grateful for and that gratitude list can be something you go back to regularly throughout the year. chesterton said life is easier when you take your life with gratitude instead of taking life for granted. >> what most americans are thankful for, 88% said family, 77% said health, personal freedom and friends. what would you say to somebody watching at home that is thinking about this and is going through a rough time thinking i can't think of anything i'm particularly grateful for? >> a lot of people say what am i
supposed to do today if i don't feel grateful? i always tell people right feelings, follow right actions. it is a lot easier to act yourself into a feeling then feel yourself into an action. the fact is if you start to act grateful you will feel grateful. there is a reason we call today thanksgiving rather than thanks feeling. >> we believe it there but first let's take a look at some members of your family. what do we have here? i see three little ones. >> our three triplets grandchildren, they are truly a miracle from god and we are going to celebrate their second birthday next week and i'm truly grateful to them. >> that is the cutest thing that you will see. you have such a beautiful family. good for you. thanks for coming on early with us, we really appreciate it.
happy thanksgiving. >> 25 after the are. america's economy booming under donald trump and today stores are open for business but should they be? the hot debate next. >> we have this notion that somehow if you are poor you cannot do it. poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids. >> we are breaking down the top political turkeys of 2019, joe biden made the list, who else? >> here is our production assistant anthony thankful for his job here. and the support of family. >> connie is thankful that he is not dinner. i'm sure he is. keep them coming.

right there on the 5 yard line. >> the patriots on defense against the cowboys on sunday. you can see the marker lines up evenly with the white and yellow lines but this shot shows where the first down marker actually wound up. the fan claims an official moved it further away making it more difficult for the cowboys to get a first down. yahoo sports point out the issue seems to be a mistake with the original placement of the ball which means they did not sheet. >> your tape review, you're into it. >> i got a head set on and talk to tom brady about it later. >> home for the holidays, not everyone. a handful of stores will open their doors on thanksgiving. >> with a booming economy heading into the holiday season more people are expected to shop till they drop this year. >> is this person one of them?
