7:13 am
>> where are the jobs. we put the dogs on the money trail to find out. we went to aig with a stimulus that meant big bonuses for big executives, but no new jobs. and in wisconsin the stimulus paid for a bridge on rusty's back water saloon. they've got great burgers, but no new jobs. finally the job tracked down something in north carolina, they used stimulus money to hire one new state worker. his job, apply for more stimulus funds for taxpayers, the fact is stimulus isn't working and washington keeps spending your money, but jobs keep disappearing. >> maybe a little hokey, but the ad certainly is effective. it's from house minority leader john boehner, the question is, where did the stimulus money go in terms of helping small businesses? to answer that question we're
7:14 am
joined by fox business reporter robert gray. again, a bit after hokey ad. the question, why didn't the stimulus help small businesses? if the stimulus had been more directed towards small businesses, would it have been more effective? >> a great question we won't know for some time. in talkling to economists and small business owners had the money been directed to that 730 million out of 787 billion dollars, that's a pretty small number although in effect in teary it works its way down, trickles down, if you will, as they of course apply for government contracts, but as opposed to going straight to them. 737, 730 million dollars only. so the bottom line is, now, i was talking to peter morici, a professor at university of maryland. >> yes. >> basically let government agencies more stimulus to the people works better. what's the problem?
7:15 am
from what i understand, small businesses can't get loans, can't get into businessment isn't the heart of the problem here? >> that's the heart of the tactic the treasury tried to do working with the bank as oppose today stimulus, that's a separate issue, but also, what's a problem here, i was doing some research here and only about 10% of spending of the stimulus has gotten out so far, so one thing is that the obama administration was thinking that unemployment would peak at 8%, 9%, we're already there 9 1/2%, now talking 10%, worse more quickly than anticipated and seems like the money is getting out a little more slowly than anticipated. >> joe biden expected he'll say today on the sunday talk shows that they misgauged how bad the economy wasment you said less than 10%, 53 billion of that stimulus has been spent, but snl that part of the problem, they didn't get the money straight out there. >> yes. >> shovel ready projects, that's what we heard so much about. >> we heard a lot about that. in all fairness we did see 168
7:16 am
billion last year the bush stimulus went straight to the people. most wept straight to the bank, a lot of people didn't-- consumers did not spend which historically it hasn't helped as much, but getting it to the business owners may have been a different story. >> yeah, i mean, the numbers right now are scary. they promised to save or create 3 1/2 million jobs, we are now down 6 1/2 million jobs since the recession began. hopefully this thing turns around. robert gray from the fox business network, we appreciate it. hopefully it turns up for small business owners. coming up, tea parties, nothing could-- i don't know wh that is actually trying to say. tea parties around the country on the 4th of july from austin to houston down to south carolina and others. we'll hear from some of those who participated next. also, the current recession, the stock market, the crash of 1989, who predicted all of these things? the man with the crystal ball next.
7:17 am

trust me on this, the blow dryer, the curling iron,
7:20 am
and thflflat iron,ill you. cascade complete all-in-one actionpacs. for money-saving offers, visit >> food riots. tax protests, strikes, high unemployment. all will characterize our economic future according to our next guest. >> yes, the trends president research center, excuse me, gerald slenty, as accurately predict add whole host of issues, economic collapse, the '89 stock market crash, starbucks boom, object and on and on, your list of predictions has come truement now, you're predicting what you call obamageddonment take us through what does it mean. >> more than an economic collapse. a decline in the empire of america. in all fairness, i'm a political atheists, i don't bow to politicians or neil or
7:21 am
at the alltars. now it's accelerated with the programs of stimulus packages, bailouts, buyouts, government takeover. people calling it is it nationalism, socialism? the merger of state and local powers, according to mussolini who knew about it is called fascism. we're looking at the disintegration of the empire in terms of this used to be the entrepreneurial empire of the world and now it's become a place for the too big to fails. the policies put in place are not going to work. look at the unemployment number as your poll is looking at. the obama administration said before the stimulus package that we had a vote on this because if we didn't, we were going to see unemployment hit 8% in 2009. and then it was going to peak at 9% in 2010. well, voila. it's already at 9.5.
7:22 am
if i had a track record like that i'd be out of business. >> gerald, i just want to read to our audience some of the other things you're predicting for the year 2012. by the year 2012 you say we'll see tent cities, we'll see ghost malls, we'll see general strikes, widespread. we'll see boss napping, we'll see gang warfare, your predictions though you've been accurate in the past, as clayton has said, it prompted the new york times to say that your predictions are basically pessimism porn. why is your outlook so much bleaker than anyone else's? >> because they're selling optimism opium, confidence, hope, and that's what they're selling, they're not selling reality. you know, there's the media world, the political world and the real world. if you look what's going on in the real world out there. look at these tax protests and again, this is something that we forecast when bush was president, history is being
7:23 am
made. i'm a bronx boy by birth. my saying is when people lose everything and they have nothing left to lose, they lose it and people are starting to lose it. not only their jobs losing, losing their pensions, losing their future, you're going to see student protests and kids are going to college, graduate doing what? >> at trends research i can picture viewers saying what is he basing this on? you look at a host of numbers and economic indicators to make the research come to light. >> as well as global issues, current events form future trends. we're hearing india joined with russia and china in talking about a new reserve currency. they all want to bail out of dollars. you cannot print phantom moan out of thin air based on nothing and producing practically nothing without destroying the economy. >> so, gerald i would hate to leave people with the vision of the apock limbs. what's the answer, since you crunch at the numbers and look at the trend.
7:24 am
what's the answer to making the trend tick upward. >> the government has to stay out of the prief enterprise and stop taking equity position ins it. the mantra, too big to fail is baloney. when you see the money and where it went, too big a fail. unless you think their mother is better than ours, they shouldn't fail and yours should. this is a whole lie, but with the too big to fail, the monopolies are killing main street. >> last time we had you on the show, our viewers crashed your website, that's how popular, people can get more information from trends research for all that you do. thanks, gerald. >> thanks, gerald. >> this morning, tragedy at disney world after two mono rail trains collided. one driver is dead. we'll bring you the breaking news. >> sarah palin's online postings on her facebook, what governor palin may have planned for the future. first, rick, a kwek look at
7:25 am
the weather. >> troubles down to the south. some very heavy rain, severe weather and some areas are going to be seeing some flooding. we'll talk all about that coming up. ♪ .

7:28 am
>> welcome back. i beat you. >> jinx. you owe me a beer. >> welcome back to "fox & friends." >> owe me a coke. alisyn camerota and the breaks on your sunday morning. >> we need to talk about the bombshell news. political news from yesterday and that's the government, sarah palin of alaska is stepping down. not only is she not running for reelection, she's leaving office this month at the end of july. >> when the news broke, she was fairly cryptic in her speech about it.
7:29 am
>> met for cal. she used the metafor, what she was going on to do. well, she now has posted on her face book account and again, it's open to interpretation. she said that she has a higher calling. >> yeah. >> we're not sure if that means in politics or out of politics. >> yeah, here is take a look at it. fou i'm looking ahead and advance the country together with values of less government intervention, greater energy independence, strong are nam security and much needed fiscal restraint and goes on and on. >> and this goes on to say how sad that washington and the media will never understand, it's about country and though it's honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and that's the key there higher calling and without finding, finishing a terment of course we know now by now a different standard applies for decisions i made. the question is what is higher calling. so many of us interpret that had as 2012, running for president, could be running for senate.
7:30 am
you say could be something entirely different away from politics altogether? >> just that where she said, what clayton just read, let's all work to the for the values of less government intervention, energy independence, stronger national security, much needed fiscal restraint, that sounds like a stump speech to me. >> it does and someone who has been quiet about sarah palin since of course the election has been senator john mccain, and he issued a statement yesterday when asked about it and he said he envisioned her taking a leadership role. so john mccain coming out and saying a leadership role for the g.o.p. what does that mean now. and glean from the tea leaves what exactly that means. >> and to keep adding all the things, the governor's associated, the republican governor's association said that she want today campaign for other candidates, leading the door maybe head of rnc position. and we get a lot of e-mails, why doesn't everyone quit speculate about this? we have to speculate she
7:31 am
hasn't answered questions and it isn't that clear what she's going to do. there hasn't been a clear path spelled out just yet. >> interesting, the los angeles times has an interesting anolsy. 1962. reminded of richard nexten after he left office and he lost his-- he ran for governor of california and lost the election to jf kennedy and in 1962 lost the governorship in california and points out that in this speech, he says, he takes on the media in his resignation speech or in his, what am i trying to say here, concession peach speech. what i'm looking for. he attacks the media in the famous speech, your neat going kick me around and facebook page, look, the media has been attacking me. >> listen to this, some liberal bloggers in her state have suggested that she was leaving because of some sort of pending investigation or ethical snafu. well, her lawyer came out swinging yesterday and said
7:32 am
that these are secure lus attacks, to the extent that liberal blogger, shannon moore, now claiming as fact that governor palin resigned because she's under investigation for embezzlement or wrongdoing, we will be exploring legal option this is week to address such defamation, he went on to say that between blogger, media outlites, he named the new york times, if anybody says anything about these, that she will sue them for defamation. >> and that's exactly what i was just talking about, nixon analogy going after the media. she weaks police sit saying the attacks and "the washington post" saying she may have resigned from office because she want today shield her family from all of the attacks which have been unfair. >> she may have and the fbi in alaska confirming there is no investigation into this supposed embezzlement scandal, there's no indictment coming down the road and that's what this liberal blogger has
7:33 am
reported. >> all right. stay tuned, this obviously is a story that will continue on for many days and months to come. here are your headlines in the meantime, let me tell you what's happening at this hour, we have a fox news alert. a deadly monorail accident at disney world. two monorails collided at the ticket and transportation center. one driver was killed, the other was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. there were only a handful of tourists on board at the time. so far no reports of any injuries. we'll bring you more details as we get them. a huge shift may be underway in iran. in a direct challenge to the ayatollah, the most important group of senior religious lead certifies now calling the country's recent election a sham. the leaders blasted iran's council accusing it of insighting violence and fraud. and iran's president ahmadnejad,s says he wants to talk to president obama in front of the media not behind closed doors, he will invite president obama to
7:34 am
negotiations next month. people in a church in florida were struck by lightning while celebrating the 4th of july. >> all 100 of them. >> lightning strikes are rare, but occur and people die as a result. and in this particular instance they thought everything was found and it turned out swaent. >> one person was killed, 18 others rushed to the hospital. and none with life threatening injuries. >> that's very scary. >> all right, former president george bush, celebrated the 4th of july in oklahoma. more than 9,000 people turned out to hear mr. bush speak. joining us from washington now is caroline shively. he got quite the crowd and reception, huh, caroline? >> he sure did. he spoke in woodward, oklahoma, that's only 12,000 people, a pretty good turnout. >> america did nothing to seek or deserve this war, but if
7:35 am
we're patient and if we're strong, this generation will do its duty and we will prevail. >> mr. bush also told the crowd that patriotism comes in all different kinds of forms. he spoke about a 60-year-old man from nevada who got a waiver to enroll in the military after hess son was killed in iraq. the man is now serving as a navy medic in the war and a blind man who lost his home in hurricane katrina, but went on to graduate summa cum laude from the university of mississippi. and the president got in a few jokes. after he flew home to texas from d.c., he told the former first lady he was free at lastments she said, yeah, you are free to take out the garbage and free to mow the lawn. i said, wait a minute, money, -- honey, you're talking to the former president. consider that your domestic

7:37 am
fishing, got so sunburned the wife had to put on makeup. >> that's a good excuse. >> you use today fake up the cough and get phlegmy and call in and now kind of build it up, i'm theorizing on facebook or twitter, build up the status throughout the weekend, maybe on wednesday if you're a weekend guy, say you're not feeling well, thursday, you have to update your status, boy, a bit of a fever, up to a hundred. >> worse, steve, feeling bad. >> they check our facebook, because it's through work. by saturday they know they saw it coming. >> you seem to know a lot about it. >> it's interesting, i'm just saying. >> a good imagination, that's interesting. but they say that the social networking sites can out youment when you do call in sec, i'm not coming in tomorrow, i'm very, very sick. and pictures of you going to the baseball game or the party and happening as well. >> an a woman writes, kids are

can't pay attention to your job, so, the question is-- the big question is whether governor sanford is up to the job that he was elected to do and that's a decision he'll have to make. >> he'll have to make, but when you work in an administration like this and having to deal with the day-to-day operations of the state of south carolina, from a professional perspective. do you think it's appropriate that he resign? >> well, it's a question of public confidence, if the public has confidence in you and thinks you can do the job then you ought to proceed, but if it comes to a point and time is running pretty short and comes to a point where all public confidence is gone, anyone in elected office ought to move on. >> have you personally talked to the governor about this? >> i have. i've told him that we're praying for him and we want him to think seriously about this, that the time is running short in terms of public confidence. >> on monday of course, fox

8:01 am
since the revolution. so it had, it is brewing interest. i mean, this is a tinder box. are the clerics going to take control. is ahmadnejad, is mousavi? another interesting point, on mousavi's website, accuses of supporters of ahmadnejad of printing more than 20 million extra ballots before the vote, and handing out cash bonuses to voters. this is how they could say, look, we have the ballots. look, he won fair and square and look at the ahmadnejad battles, they handed them out. that's why it was rigged beforehand according to mousavi. >> and we talked to a colonel before this, and what it means for ahmadnejad and why he wants to sit down with president obama. i want to sit down and have a chat and do it in front of the cameras. >> this puts president obama in a difficult situation. if he'd won outright, the same place as we are now.
8:02 am
because it's disputed and ahmadnejad is asking obama to sit down and puts obama in a difficult situation. i don't think it does. i don't think there's any question he has to say no to this. all ahmadnejad wants is to stand up there on a stage as he said in front of international media, shake hands and legitimize a fraudulent election. >> not only that. the president has to say no to this. >> look at also the brutality used to stamp out the protesters. that's something that our president cannot condone. >> and that's what he would do having in front of the media. >> colonel hunt had a lot to say about this when we talked to him. >> the politics behind, obama's talking about talking with-- that's not going to happen at a press conference. there will be a lot of things happening with the state department before our president and ahmadnejad meet anywhere, but certainly, the first time out is not going to be in front of the world press. >> an interesting power struggle right now in that
8:03 am
country. there are some in the bbc analyzing this, saying look, this in fact could be the case that the supreme leader, not that supreme leader after all. in fact, it could be he's having to kowtow to a populous president in ahmadnejad. hopefully president obama does not agree to sit down with him. >> and ahmadnejad going on and on saying to the u.s., why did president obama interfere? why did he utter remarks irrespective of norms decorum from ahmadnejad, and bizarre stuff and rambling about him. how does the president sit down with him after he says these things. he can't. >> tell what the headlines are at this hour. u.s. marines are fighting a new enemy in afghanistan. the heat, 100 plus temperatures are creating rough conditions for marines as they launch a new offensive in the southern afghanistan desert and medics treating heat related injuries. >> after a while, your body shuts down and you can't do anymore and your body close itself off and core

militarily to north korea. we get e-mails responses twittering, why are we twiddling our thumbs? >> the answer is seoul, a city of millions and millions of people and there is no defense of what north crowe could to to south korea. no missile defense, nothing. the north korean have the largest standing military in the world. they blew up two last year and now these missiles which won't reach hawaii, but you can throw a nuclear weapon from north to south korea to seoul. so it's the city of seoul held hostage by north korea which eliminates almost any military action we could do and oh, by the way, we're fighting in afghanistan and iraq with our own war on terror. and that's a bridge too far quite frankly. >> yeah, it seems leak the vice-president kind of nailed

8:32 am
murder-suicide. steve mcnair, 36-year-old former mvp, three time pro bowler, was in the super bowl in 2000. >> and loved in nashville, obviously, for that of course the famous drive in the super bowl, coming up one yard short. >> of beating the ram. >> i remember the headlines i happened to be, near nashville, loved nashville the front page of the tennessean and reaching out, that one yard dive for the end zone came up a yard short. >> 3 is,000 yards, threw for 13 seasons with the titans, the oilers, the ravens, he will be missed and this investigation continues and they will come out after this after the autopsy they were performing today and hopefully shed a little more light on what happened. >> yeah, and the 20-year-old woman of course found with him and police say was someone suggested was his girlfriend. his wife is said to be distraught this morning as you can imagine. in the meantime, other headlines for you, what is happening at this hour.

8:42 am
since then because it was successful. >> i've got something that will help. >> thank you, guys. >> fair and balanced. >> okay, in the meantime we need to get to some news if you don't mind. we have a michael jackson update because the investigation into michael jackson's death is focusing in great measure on the singer's use of prescription drugs and extremely powerful set tiffs, diprivan was found in his rented mansion where he died along with several narcotics. how did he get such a dangerous drugs and what will happen to the doctor or doctors who supplied him. here are a former defense attorney and a former federal prosecutor. fred, any doctor that provided diprivan, used in the operating room for heart surgery. won't that doctor go to jail? >> he possibly could, alisynment when i prosecuted the case they're called diversions, they're writing prescriptions they're not suppose today be writing. this may be one of them. >> it is one of them. how else could he have gotten
8:43 am
it unless it stole it from a hospital. >> there's allegations that prescriptions written in false and fake names what. bothers me about the case, the doctors get close to the celebrities and put aside their objectivity, they put aside their hippocratic oath all to stay close to these celebrities, worrying if they don't give them what they ask for they're going to be thrown out and someone else will take their place. and mercedes, they do this for money? >> it's amazing they do. certainly, one of his doctors was on staff, essentially, he traveled with him. that's someone who is clearly in it for the money and cast a blind eye to all that was happening. at the time of michael's jackson's death. 112 pounds, nearly 6 feet tall. the sirens should have gone off in the doctor's head, something seriously wrong with this. >> the doctor with him when he collapsed ap apparently tried to administer cpr when the 911 call was made. is there anything that you see that if he wasn't prescribing
8:44 am
jackson the prescriptions, he's not necessarily in trouble? >> no, he wouldn't be necessarily, if he was not the one who was getting the scrips falsely or under fake pretences, but he was a guy who apparently had a lot of financial problems, he was picked by the promoter to take care of this guy, and he was put in a position he was supposed to be watching over jackson, and letting him have the drugs is like giving him a revolver with one bullet in the chamber and going click, click, click. >> i think there's going to an investigation, and there should be, maybe he didn't write the scrip, didn't write the death warrant, but he had a contributing factor and did he deviate from conventional medical practice and frankly, watching your patient waste away to nothing, be emaciated, virtually eat nothing, there was some rumors that michael jackson was anorexic, how could you continue to-- >> this is similar to anna nicole smith where we found out she had the dangerous prescription drugs combination
8:45 am
and what happened to her doctor? well, they've been prosecuted as part of a conspiracy, including the attorney, who was her boyfriend. they've all been prosecuted and should be. no doctor in good conscience could watch this guy take diprivan or demerol, oxycontin, the guy like a chemical waste dump and nobody stood up and said, i'm going to stop this and save this man's life and this is exactly what would happen. >> look at the video on the right-hand side of the screen, the last days of hess life. it's phenomenal he could function like this, still dancing and singing even though he's wasting away and alleged on all the drugs. if he were doctor shopping, if the doctors didn't know that there were so many drugs, could they still be in trouble? >> i think this is an excellent point, aly, where the difference is going to be, who how could we know that this is going on. he's doctor shopping, a through z we wouldn't necessarily know. there's a depository where the
8:46 am
doctors have to register some narcotic drugs and was it due diligence they looked into the registry to see whether he was, for many years they now, michael jackson is known for be-- if you're taking care of the patient should you look at the due diligence and see what he's been registered. >> the d.e.a., drug enforcement administration, has a division, diversion division, and look where the doctors are sending to narcotics and hopefully will be looking into this. >> tragic, so tragic, and see what the toxicology report says. thank you, we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> mark sanford, the governor of south carolina, his political career may be over, but can the cheating governor still salvage his marriage? sanford says he's trying to fall in love with his wife again. does that really work? can a person make themselves fall in love?

8:51 am
psychologist joins us now as well. thanks so much for being here. thank you. >> i want to start with you. >> my pleasure. >> he says he's trying to fall in love with his wife again. in your experience is it possible? >> no, it's not possible to fall in love. you can decide to work on your connection at home, you can decide to be in love in a way that will keep the family together, but to fall in love, no. >> so is that what's happening here dr. ablow, staying together for the children, more what's going to happen as they move forward? >> now, look, i think that's a pessimistic attitude. in my practice, again and again, i've had husbands and wives rediscover what brought them together. look, bottom line is it's very tough to maintain passion in the setting of familiar yart. when you're with someone ten, 20 years, it's hard to have that romantic flame, but it can be rekindled and people can rediscover their values, why they value one another
8:52 am
more than someone else whom they've met with whom they have a deep connection. look, i think the governor is giving america a lesson how you navigate very troubled waters in a marriage and he's doing it i think with raw honesty and i don't know how people know how to cope with it? >> he's giving us a lesson, a lesson in everything not to do. >> listen, i provoked this discussion intentionally. >> from a guy. >> there are millions, there are millions and millions of couples in america right now struggling with the same issue in their marriages, they don't know how to rekindle passion, they may have found someone else, this is an equal opportunity employer now between genders, because women are straying as much as men and let's be honest, we don't give journalists a litmus test and we rely on big name journalists to give us the truth, too. we don't go looking into their marriages, we should not be sniffing around in mark
8:53 am
sanford's marriage. i hope he stays on his-- i hope he repairs his marriage. >>, but hold on a second. we don't keep sniffing around, he keeps giving interviews to the ap and having made statements finding his soulmate in argentina. he says he found his soulmate and admitted that. in your experience and practice, isn't that too strong after tug away from your marriage? >> that's not a tug, that's-- there's not even a word for the verb, right, how he's getting pulled back to argentina and yes, you can rekindle a relationship as long as you have two willing partners. in this case, you have someone who is a top aide and now turned into sort of a wife policeman, and you have someone who is saying very straight forward way, my heart is in argentina and you don't have a willing partnership right now. they should-- >> come on. >> if i had them in front of me you're going to need to separate for a while or for long-term, co-parent well and
8:54 am
admit how you feel about each other. >> what's wrong with that, keith? >> i like the truth, alisyn. the bottom line it's the truth that men and women can have two thoughts at the same time. they can be willing to literally sacrifice both arms to save the single hand of their spouse and yet, be pulled in an incredibly powerful way toward their quote, soulmate. bottom line is reconciling those two realities is the work of marriage and mark sanford is a human being, he can lead through this and he can save his marriage and find out, now what, god forbid my wife were sick i'd still be driving her to the doctor every day so i'm not going back to ba, to buenos aires. >> let me ask you this, when mrs. sanford came out and was independent and did not stand by the governor's side and appeared to walk away from
8:55 am
this. so many women held her up, this is what the women should do when they're entangled in this type of scam. is she setting-- i'm putting it out there, i don't know, is she putting forth an example for other women. >> there's an intellectual and emotional decision. >> intellectual decision she's made is she's going to forgive him whether he's asking for forgiveness or not. emotionally i don't know if she's going to get to that point. we know that if we were in the house and god knows i wouldn't wouldn't to be there right now. she has stood by him in trying to set an example for the people of south carolina. i can stand by my man, can you stand by him, too? and it's because she wants to save his job. if anything she's thinking, he's-- >> i don't know about that. >> foolish and i really need to be the more thoughtful person who's got her head on straight as he's losing his mind a little bit. >> keith, what do you think about her? >> no, not at all.
8:56 am
listen, we would never advise someone we care about, hey you know the way you should select your mate, the person with whom you're most sexually attracted that's it, that's who you pick. bottom line, those people who walk away from marriages because there's an episode of inphi kelt. i question how deep their love and commitment was because these things can be healed. bottom line, there are big things in the world. do you know that this couple wouldn't pay a moment's attention to what has happened here if god forbid one of their kids were ill? this wouldn't be a footnote in the marriage. they'd both be attending to business and reminded of their love and how much their families mean. this is an opportunistic concern, it doesn't go to the roots of what bind them. >> all right. dr. keith ablow and we appreciate you both being here, an intriguing debate. >> a pleasure. >> thanks so much. let's go to clayton what's

9:08 am
apologize if you are eating your cereal now, meanwhile, we also need to talk about what is happening with sarah palin this morning, because, so many people are wondering what is next for the governor of alaska and she's leaving office the end of the month, is she leaving because it's the start of something and she's launching a possible presidential campaign for 2012 or is she leaving for some other less positive reason, as some bloggers in alaska have suggested? >> and she went on her facebook page and twittered, bouncing back and yesterday announced she was resigning and yesterday said this -- >> this that is her lawyer's statement. >> clayton: but she said yesterday she's moving towards and doing it for a higher calling and what in the world does that mean? does that mean, as you think, possibly a higher spiritual calling and wants to go forward with something else? "washington post" thinking maybe she'll move to higher office, a senate seat, perhaps the present
9:09 am
dance in 2012 and senator john mccain speaking out, saying that she will have a leadership role in the g.o.p. and that was a telling commented. >> dave: and e-mailers say maybe she's after michael steele's job, head of the r.n.c. and who knows and the statement we showed about the attorney, concerning the rumors and there is an embezzlement scandal that suggests an indictment is coming down. >> clayton: by a liberal blogger. >> her lawyer says, to the extent several web sites, most notably liberal alaska blogger shan anyone moore are now claiming as fact that governor paint resigned because she is under federal investigation, for embezzlement or other criminal wrongdoing, we'll be exploring legal option this week to address such defamation and the fbi confirmed there is no investigation into sarah palin in this exposed embezzlement scandal and no in diet on the way, either. >> alisyn: and as a result, now, his -- her lawyer, is saying
9:10 am
they will sue bloggers or media out let's, even big ones, "new york times," "washington post," if they say anything about these possible federal investigations that do not exist. >> clayton: what is this end game? we asked karl rove and thee thought it was a mistake coming out friday, before the 4th of july holiday and sounded odd and if she wants a national platform and status and -- in the long run it was a wrong move for her to come out and leave office, this early, and especially, if she will be running in 2012, that is a long time, and his argument was, if you have the governorship, you have a platform. you have influence and power then to do things, and get your message out there, in a way. so, is she -- >> alisyn: but she suggested all of the negative media attention, that has been focused on her, spotlight on her and her family is drawing away the good work she could be doing and said, i will not put the people of alaska through that and some people think she's falling on the sword and leaving office,

because, it -- too many distracting things and had such star power she has not been able to do the work. >> clayton: and this legal trouble, $500,000, of legal bills that she has, too, only makes $125,000 as governor and maybe leaving office early to pursue speaking engagements. going out and helping the g.o.p. campaign as karl rove said, perhaps to pay off legal debts as well. >> dave: so much to come... some even say the governor acted just like president reagan. -- acts just like president reagan and does she? we'll ask michael reagan, nationally send indicated talk show host, coming up next. >> clayton: and the big reveal coming up... what is under this sheet in you have surprised me, old on a second, there is something hid in and you will show me, i don't know what this is. >> alisyn: it will be your favorite surprise ever and he predicts things and normally predict great trends. >> i sent him outside to help me with the prediction and he predicts all this trends and
9:12 am
cannot speak, he's busy with his psychic powers trying to tell me what is under the sheet. gerald... >> alisyn: what are you picking up. >> clayton: tap in using the vulcan mind meld... >> dave: you could just lift the sheet!

9:15 am
>> alisyn: bombshell, political news, sarah palin has chosen to end her first term as alaska's governor rather abruptly and when looking for possible motivations, some are comparing her to former president ronald reagan. >> clayton: we are joined by radio talk show host and son of former president ronald reagan, michael reagan, thanks for joining us this morning. >> good morning! >> clayton: this inevitable distinction, comparison, being drawn between sarah palinic taking the time off and what your father, did taking time off in fact to go and listen to people and learn how to grab his speaking skills and come back with a great movement into the political arena. do you buy that? is that what she is doing here no well, if she is doing it for political reasons, it is not a smart move at all. i was with sarah palin a
9:16 am
month-and-a-half ago, and she asked me, do you know the good guys from the bad guys in politics and i said, yes, i do know the good guys and the bad guys and she said can i call you and we talked about the fact that i felt she was getting batted from whomever was in fact advising her and if she is leaving for personal reasons, because of the family, all right. but, if she is doing it for political reasons, i think she's making terribly this wrong move, ronald reagan finished out both terms and showed he could be reelected as governor of the state of california and then went onto run for the presidency, in 1976 and 1980 and i suggested to her lieutenant governor, the other day, if she wants to be serious, she should run for re-election, help build the republican party, and in the in 2016, won't have to in fact announce she's going to run, if she does her job as a party builder. and they will want her to run of the presidency of the u.s. >> dave: but to her credit she says she's concerned about the issues facing the country, not
9:17 am
simply those issues facing alaska. and so if she want to get out there, the president's message, raise money for the party, and wouldn't that do more help for the party than would being governor of alaska, as she calls it a lame duck governor? >> yeah, but what happens is, as soon as she steps down, as governor, she no longer has the star power, as being reelected governor of the state of alaska and doesn't have the power that she had as governor of the state. she's now just sarah palin, the governor who resigned, and didn't finish her job in alaska. and other people within the party will just eat her up and throw her away and may be good for short-term but the long term it will not work for her. >> alisyn: michael, interesting, that you said you spent time with her a couple of weeks ago, up in alaska. and you didn't think she was getting the best advice. who was advising her? it sounds as though, even though those closest to her didn't know she was going to do it and her brother said he didn't know she
9:18 am
was going to leave office. who is advising her. >> i tell you, i wish i knew. i talked to her brother the night i was there and i was in alaska giving a speech, to a thousand people and she introduced me at that event and we talked to her brother and to the people who speak for her up there and speak to sarah palin and to her husband. and i thought for a long time she was getting bad advice and going on television and talking about things she didn't need to talk about and should have gone back and been governor of the state. and i think in some ways, the star power from the presidency run or vice presidential run, has affected her. just because somebody sticks a microphone in your face doesn't always mean you have to answer the question. and i think she got to a point she was always answering the questions and staying in the news, i think she is better off backing away from news and being the governor of the state, and moving forward and decided not do that and i think it is a bad political move. >> "the new york times"'s cover story says there is a rift in
9:19 am
the republican party and we hear all over the place there is no rift but you look at the leaders that is where this rift. >> chris: you don't hear anything from president george w. bush on this or his father and now, finally heard something from john mccain on sarah palin, is there a rift, specifically over sarah palin? >> well, no, not really. what is ha happening now is they are looking for a leader, someone to lead the charge and here's the problem with conservatives. i am wouldn't. we're always looking for -- a am one and we're looking for the person to lead the parties and liberals have an ideology and that is what leads them and we are looking for the next ronald reagan and we need to look for the next leader and if we are looking for ronald reagan he passed away a few years ago and the reality of it is, it greats we had him as president of the united states of america but we need to remember what high did and move on and find somebody who will lead us into the future and now, i think probably the only leader the pare has is probably newt gingrich. >> dave: michael reagan, appreciate your thoughts, thank for being here.
9:20 am
>> alisyn: thanks, michael. >> clayton: coming up, all americans over the country are letsing off steam at tea parties like these. take a look. but these protests could be the tip of the iceberg, we'll explain why. >> alisyn: and winner of the hot dog eating contest just arrived. eating up all the food in the greenroom and gearing up for ore "fox & friends" wiener challenge! you heard me! >> hide the wieners! how 'bout a laundry day you can look forward to? trading up to appliances that work hard... and taking advantage of lowered prices that are loaded with freebies-- like free delivery and free haul away that are hassle-free. maybe all that will make those big purchases - feel less big. - ♪ oh yeah! more saving. more doing. - that's the power of the home depot. - ♪ oh oh oh yeah!

sid: [laugh] ha ha, no, stop, stop. >> clayton: welcome back to "fox & friends." look at your screen there, foot riot, tax protests, strikes and high unemployment across your screen, could characterize our economic future, according to our next guest. >> alisyn: the trend president obama is setting now, to fix the
9:24 am
economy will drive us in toy a diaper depression, so says joel pawlenty, the founder of trends research institute and calls it "obamageddon" and joins us now and let us fill the audience in on other things you are predicting homeless uprisings, tent cities, ghost malls. boss-nappings, gang warfare, why so apock limitedic. >> current events form future trends and look at the unemployment numbers, there is this effective unemployment rate and they give you the official unemployment rate and when you look at people who are no longer looking for work and people with part-time work and also people looking for work and cannot find any, the effective unemployment rate is 18.7%. >> alisyn: much higher than 9.5. >> and let's remember the obama administration said that unemployment would top out at 8%, in 2009. and, 9% in 2010.
9:25 am
and, the official unemployment rate is 9.5 and this is worse than people -- people know in their hearts, they are getting a fake message from the outside. >> clayton: you all it "obamageddon" which we could see by 201 and the rest of the world could call it the greatest depression, when we look at the great depression we know what happened and you think it was the -- it will be worse. why. >> the facts. most people didn't own homes during the great depression and were not $14 trillion in debt, they didn't have credit cards. the government had trade surpluses, we also had budget surpluses and weren't $11.5 trillion in debt. the government is obligated, catch this number, for each household according to a u.s.a. today study, $546,000 of government obligation per household with the debt and all the other -- >> clayton: we'll get into that.
9:26 am
>> alisyn: but, yet, the stock market is doing much better than it was, when it dipped below 8,000 a couple of months ago. why don't you see that as promising. >> it is so down from, what, 14,000. >> alisyn: but, seems you ignore anything promising and the job numbers are better than expected. is there no beacon of light anywhere? >> let's say it -- it doesn't equal more better. we cannot print our way out of the problem, we need to reduce the capacity and you cannot print money out of thin air backed by nothing and producing practically nothing and india is talk about, we wanted to reserve currency tying in with china and russia, bailing out our butts and know what is going on. >> clayton: this is where people have been e mailing and does gerald have a book, no, but has the trends research journal and you can go there, and sign up and get all of the information you guys are working on, gerald, thanks for joining us. >> alisyn: you scare me but we like having you on.

9:32 am
selected to attend what some are billing the event of a lifetime, of course, michael jackson's memorial service, for tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m. here in downtown l.a., at the staples center. but, of course, not everyone signed up to witness history. a handful of people had other things in mind, like, making a quick buck, already, people are trying to scalp their tickets on sites like ebay and craigslist, and some offers going for thousands of dollars. pretty wild when you consider these ticket are being given out for free and the event organizers say they cannot control how people manage their second tickets an wristbands, because, remember, everyone gets two. in the meantime, a logistical nightmare, starting to unfold in downtown l.a. look at this map, the area in red will be completely shut down on tuesday. streets closed, talking about main arteries, here, and an area with 25,000 parking spots, more than 27 acres, keep in mind, l.a. is the second largest city in the country.
9:33 am
a half a million people alone, work downtown. as you can imagine, an event of this magnitude, could cripple the downtown area much of the morning, especially when you consider more than 1.2 million registered for the tickets. that is the same number of people who attended the inauguration of president lyndon johnson back in 1965. a little interesting fact there for you. also, of course the other big news, happening downtown tomorrow, not far from where i am standing, the court hearing where a judge will decide who gets temporary control of michael jackson's estate. an estate estimated at a value of more than $500 million. the jackson family expected to be in that court hearing tomorrow, we, of course will be there as well. so, a lot of stuff going on today, tomorrow, and tuesday. for the event. we'll bring it here, and be here and bring it all to you, live, guys. >> clayton: casey, thanks for covering all of the angles for us.
9:34 am

9:36 am
when many others would not. >> reporter: this was this biggest audience he has spoken to since leaving audience and was held at a rodeo arena, and the mayor's count, half the number showed up to hear the speech and "the associated press" described the town of a middle of nowhere oil field town and mr. bush said, no wonder i feel so comfortable here, i was born in midland texas and talked about moving home from d.c. to texas and said to his wife, laura, he was free at last. >> she said, yeah, you are free to take out the garbage! and free to mow the lawn and i said, wait a minute, you are talking to the former president. and she said, well, consider that your new domestic policy agenda! >> reporter: he detailed what it is like to watch the national fireworks from the truman balcony of the white house, the majestic, beautiful sight and said i.t. being at a rodeo, though, in oklahoma is pretty darned good. >> alisyn: good stuff. thanks very much, those are your

information coming into the fox newsroom at least 16 people were injured in indiana, late last night, when a suspension bridge collapsed into a lake. spectators were leaving a 4th of july fireworks display at hidden lake park in merrillville, indiana at around 10:00 p.m. last night and the 90-foot-long
9:44 am
wooden bridge was jammed with people, before it fell and you can see the aftermath, here, this is the video just coming into our newsroom, witnesses report hearing two snaps, before everyone went into the water. people had to hang onto the bridge while dive teams helped pull people out of the water and happened about 45 miles southeast of chicago. no deaths have been reported. dozens, though, were injured, and they were taken to area hospitals, for treatment, we'll keep you posted on their condition. >> dave: thanks, americans hosted a second round of tea parties and the protest of massive government spending and who can forget janeanne garofalo calling the protesters a bunch of racist red necks. >> let's be honest about what it is about, not about bashing democrats and not about taxes, they have no idea what the boston tea party was about and it is about hating a black man in the white house and that is racism straight up and that is nothing but a bunch of [bleeped]
9:45 am
red necks. >> dave: despite these ignorant comments she was invited to a tea part in dallas and not surprisingly, did not show. and joining us from dallas, the organizer who invited her, katrina pearson, and good morning to you. i guess no surprise janeanne garofalo did not show up. >> no, dave, no surprise. >> dave: what was yesterday all about for you? and those who did gather for the tea party? >> i guess -- yesterday was about two things, celebrating our independence, and, kind of redeclaring it for ourselves during these times. >> dave: and i understand that you did not wanted to leth elected officials or governor rick perry there. why not? >> well, this is really a grassroots movement, and i think a lot of people are just tired of hearing politicians talk, because there is no action. we want to be represented as conservatives. and the point we find a conservative that will represent us, maybe one day we'll let them
9:46 am
speak and for now, the movement is for the people and by the people and this is it. >> dave: you have you are conservatives and i heard many other organizers of tea parties who say they do not wanted to be connected with -- wanted to be connected with either political party and are you saying you want it to be affiliated with the republican party as conservatives? >> oh, no. we are an all-party affiliation and by conservative, i mean fiscal responsibility and not conservative, i.e. republican pare, not at all. >> dave: tell me how the heat might have affected the party. it was north of 100 degrees. >> and it was and people came and went and it was very hot and we tried to get a good estimate at midnight and based on the number of cars, we had about 37,000, in attendance. >> dave: where do you go from here, what is next? >> well, moving forward, we are planning to hit this ground

9:48 am
. where did my goat go? well, it went to a family who really needed it. just like the heifer cow i used to have, and the water buffalo-- which was really too big for my place anyway. but why send livestock? why not...tractors? because giving an animal is like giving someone a small business-- all that wool, the milk, the eggs... turn into income ... for medicine, school, clothing, a better home, a sustainable livelihood. it even produces... fertilizer for crops. and of course, it makes more livestock ... 'cause animals make baby animals - that's what they do. next thing you know, the family you gave your gift to is "passing on the gift" of the animal's offspring to another family who does the same thing... and so on and so on until, pretty soon, you've helped lift an entire community out of poverty.
9:49 am
all with your gift to heifer international.
