12:01 pm
big labor gets tough with president obama. the traditional allies are now at odds. unions are ready to put on the break. i'm uma pemmaraju. america's news headquarters live from the nation's capital starts now. we begin with a fox news alert on devastating floods that swept through colorado. rescue workers wage a fight against the clock to reach people living in remote communities. cut off by the worst flooding to hit the state in texas. domenica davis itexas -- dominic di-natale is standing by. >> reporter: they are saying they are making swift progress in rescuing the people who are stranded in the isolated places. they are still having to rely on the air support to rescue people. they can't put a number on how
12:02 pm
many more people need rescuin rescuing. if one case, there was a pregnant woman, her water broke and she started to give birth. who knows how she would have coped if she was stranded in the home in boulder county. we speak also to rocky mountain team a short while ago. they were described when the people get rescued, you have no idea how much of a relief it is to the people. take a listen. >> extremely challenging. emotionally. physically for the folks. a lot of folks don't have any kind of information about what is going on. they don't have the phone or tv or power. they have been in the dark about what is happening. >> a lot of people in state of shock when someone comes to
12:03 pm
rescue them. authorities say look, we have to assume because we can't account for anybody there is a fatality and we hear from the injuries are coming in, are not many in numbers but they are there. the medical team focus on who they can rescue. and who is in the serious condition. not allowing media on any of the helicopter flights. there are operation in the air and on the ground continue today because we expect showers in the evening. they will complicate the effort. let me show you what is happening here. on the bolder creek behind me. fast-moving water. 12,000 cubic feet per minute. that is less than yesterday. this is indicktive of how far it's blowing. the water is coming in from the mountains. the south plat river is the major concern with the rivers busting the bank today.
12:04 pm
we think it should bust the bank down. we think also a little further down the river. we see it cresting tomorrow. we don't know how bad it will be. but the authorities are bracing themselves for that. we hear 50 people don't want to rescue the authority. they think the things could be complicated tomorrow. >> back to you. >> thank you. after days of heavy rains, is that water going to finally catch a break? meteorologist janice dean will join us later in the show with the weather forecast in the next few days in colorado. >> we have agreed to destroy the chemical whens, including removing them outside of syria. >> an agreement reached this morning to rid syria of the chemical whens. the latest fox news comes after the several days of high
12:05 pm
profile negotiation between secretary of state john kerry and russia foreign minister. under the new deal syria has a week to declare the size and the location of the chemical weapons stock pile. james rose season joining us now live from geneva where the stocks are taking place. james? >> good afternoon from geneva. ambitious, daunting doable is how the senior state department officials describe the four-page agreement hammered out by the secretary of state kerry and labrov in three day of around-the-clock negotiations between them and the respective teams of the technical advisors. still, sharp differencepse remain. they reach a shared assessment on the size and scope of assad's chemical whens stock pile. roughly 1,000 metric tons of the warfare agent. but the russians do not agree with the estimate there are 45 sites where the whens are produced, mix and stored.
12:06 pm
nor do all the sites are in the regime controlled areas that the u.s. maintains. the u.s. and russian negotiator agreed any failure to comply in terms of the deal. with the stock pile by friday. followed by the immediate and unfettered access for inspectors thereafter will result in referral to security council for punishment. the two sides had different takes on that. >> what remedy is chosen is subject to the debate within the council, which is always true. there is a commitment to impose measures. that is the language. will impose measures commensurate with whatever is needed for accountability. >> of course, does not mean that every violation that is reported to the security council will be taken --
12:07 pm
[ inaudible ] but we'll investigate every case. because there is a lot of false information. we should be cautious about that. >> while the russians don't agree that is the syrian regime that carried out the chemical whens attack of august 21, today's agreement upon framework aims to destroy the stockpile of the poison gases, nerve agents, munitions, by july 2014. now u.s. officials set the first litmus test in living up to the agreement that the russians negotiate on, will come friday whether his declaration of the stock pile is candid and complete. if not, he faces referral to the security council. >> uma: thank you for the update. john kerry says the world will accept the assad regime to live up to it.
12:08 pm
but can they be trusted to get rid of the stock pile when it's in the midst of a civil war? joining us with the stock on the new deal, the retired air force colonel. this is a land plan set in motion. under normal circumstances it would be difficult to carry out. and even more challenging, though, isn't it? in the midst of a civil war? >> absolutely. look, i think we have been snookered. i give the secretary of state great credit. and the foreign minister for coming up with the plan, the framework plan if they can do it. the next friday we will have an inventory of whe weapons. november we have inspectors on the ground. july of 2014, all whens will be destroyed or removed. if in fact, they can do that. i am doubtful. but the thing that concerns me the most is the russians now still become the dominant factor, the leader in syria and the area.
12:09 pm
followed by iran. that shiite crescent that all the nations over there are worried about, the saudi arabia, all the countries egypt, is now still going to be there. frankly, two weeks ago it looked like it would be gone, and that you would have had a new center of gravity there, which would have been favorable to the united states. so that is what is disturbing. we now have the u.n. security council, which is protecting bashar assad, and legitimizing him as the leader of syria. frankly he was going to be gone in a couple of months. >> talk about the chemical whens. at the moment, he has moved them around the country how difficult is it for to us be to verify where those are, and how to get them out? >> i think it's extremely difficult. that's why this inventory next friday is going to be important. we have certain assets like global hog unmanned aerial
12:10 pm
vehicle that has six sensor mode that can see where they are moving these things. so we'll compare where we think they went. and where the assad regime tells us. so we can tell if there are differences. that is not a perfect science. but it will at least give us an indication. that is what is going to be crucial in this upcoming period. do we know, are we watching close enough to where they are moving the assets? >> i know you will watching closely. thank you so much for joining us with the insight. we appreciate it. >> thank you, uma. >> uma: joining us now with reaction to the latest news about the new syria whens deal and the showdown, labor unions are having with the white house over obama care. set to roll out in two weeks. thank you for being here today. juan, let me begin with you. it looks like we have a deal on chemical whens but does this come at a political price for the white house? had to acquiesce to a face
12:11 pm
saving negotiation at a time when putin is relishing his role as so-called diplomatic leader though he is supplying huge amount of weaponry for the syria civil war? >> it starts with the politics. i wouldn't point to russia first. point here at ohm and globally in fact to say that the whole world, especially americans, american voters did not want u.s. intervention in syria. i think it was very important for to us send a signal to the world we don't tolerate chemical weapons but i don't think there is a question that president obama and his team saw it as a way to get off the hook in terms of the likely defeat in the congress. i don't know about the senate but in the house for the military intervention. the fact they now have a deal, that is great news to so many people. with regard to putin, putin has a stronger hand to play, to pick up on what general mcanerney was saying but i don't think it's the case that russia is now the dominant power in the region.
12:12 pm
i don't think they are close to that. >> uma: monica, what is your take? >> i think listening to general mcanerney there, he raises a good point. the international inspection used as delaying tactic to continue, could continue their weapons buildup and now buildup the arsenal. we saw with saddam hussein. this is a cat and mouse game. we are seeing it with the iranians with the u.n. weapons program. we know they, that their nuclear weapon program continues to pace. this is just another opportunity for syria. terrorist regime. backed by another terrorist regime, iran, just to simply buy some time. what we do know is that russia, the soviet union have been shut out of the greater middle east, since the early 1970s, thanks to president nixson. now thanks to president obama the russians are a dominant player in the middle east. they re-established a
12:13 pm
foothold. this is bad for the united states and las vegas. >> the stakes are high. i want to turn to news at home over the showdown between big labor unions and the white house over obama care. union leaders push hard for the obama care are leading a battle cry against it unless they get the special government subsidiaries or waivers. doesn't it hurt the overall sales pitch for obamacare, juan? >> it does. >> clearly, the union major democrats constituency, uma, previously were supporters without a doubt. they were promoters of the healthcare reform. now it's not the case that seau repeal it. which is what you hear from many republicans. they say let's fix it. the fix they were asking for is one that would have allowed the unionized workers who have employer provide healthcare plans. to take advantage of subsidies that are going to people who don't have health insurance or impoverished. now the unions say wait, you gave certa waivers to employers, why not to
12:14 pm
employees? that would put the obama administration in a hypocritical position. because i think they would be undermining the central play of obamacare, spreading insurance coverage, especially to the poor and those without insurance. >> monica, what is the fall-out that the white house gives in the waivers? what is the message to the average american who won't get special treatment like the union, corporations and members of congress? >> of late yesterday, uma, the white house indicated it was not going to go forward with the exceptions and the subsidiaries for the labor unions. we'll see how long that lasts. remember the labor unions were very supportive in terms of money and resources for the democrats. if particular for the president. i'm not buying that this will last that long. the problem is that the union leaders and the union members are now seeing the very predictable fallout of obamacare. socialized medicine. they are losing their security
12:15 pm
and they don't like it one bit. this is what we worry about when it's passed. what they are saying now, look, we will go hat in hand to the white house. for whom we have done so much. beg for the exemptions. the problem here is that most americans hate this saying. they want to repeal entirely or in part. they are seeing crony socialism. this is crony socialism. we have politically connected ally of the president and the democrats asking for all kind of waivers and exemptions. i want to know where mine is or juan's is. >> this is what the unions have done. i think they opened the door to this socialized medicine to all of this complaining, especially from the strong conservatives from monica. nobody's job, the unions aren't saying anybody's job at risk. what they are saying is that in fact in the midst of the recession, they have seen they benefit and especially their healthcare packages diminish.
12:16 pm
they want the government to offer them some of the subsidies that are going to the poor. they don't want to repeal. they want a fix. they want a benefit to go to them as a political ally. it's not -- >> actually, the laborer's international union said if it can't be fixed, it should be repealed. >> i have to leave it there. obviously, the two of you and great to see you, both of you for the insight. appreciate it. >> you're welcome. >> thank you, uma. >> uma: turning now to developing story out of ohio, greyhound bus accident that left the highway, flipped, hit a tree and fence and then landed in a cornfield injuring one of 30 people. the officials, some of the injured had to be air lifted from the scene, 25 miles north of cincinnati. the investigators are still at the scene trying to determine how this happened. now that the u.s. and russia have a deal to eliminate surviveddia's chemical weapons arsenal and the u.s. and syria, the hold
12:17 pm
up their end of the deal, ahead, you will hear from one of the congress' leading skeptics of any u.s. military intervention in syria. saturdasenator rand paul. and devastation along new jersey famed boardwalk. fire damage to businesses that only recently recovered from superstorm sandy. we the latest on the tough situation. news of another arrest in a long running fast and furious scandal. we have details right after the break. stay with us. um... where's mrs. davis? she took an early spring break thanks to her double miles from the capital one venture card. now what was mrs. davis teaching? spelling. that's not a subject, right? i mean, spell check. that's a program. algebra. okay. persons a and b are flying to the bahamas. how fast will they get there? don't you need distance, rate and... no, all it takes is double miles. [ all ] whoa. yeah. [ male announcer ] get away fast with unlimited double miles from the capital one venture card. you're the world's best teacher.
12:18 pm
this is so unexpected. what's in your wallet? this is so unexpected. if you've got it, you know how hard it can be to breathe and man, you know how that feels. copd includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. spiriva is a once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that helps open my obstructed airways for a full 24 hours. you know, spiriva helps me breathe easier. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. does breathing with copd weigh you down?
12:19 pm
don't wait to ask your doctor about spiriva.
12:20 pm
12:21 pm
>> uma: welcome back, everybody. take a look. stunning images of the boardwalk were smolders from the fire. the cause is under investigation. we understand that governor chris christie will meet with the business owners whose properties were destroyed later today. brian has the latest. >> reporter: governor christie is meeting with the local businesses along the shore after thursday night flame damaged 50 businesses. private meeting will rally together a community that finished rebuilding itself a year after superstorm sandy hit. governor christie vowing to rebuild the blocks danieled touring the boardwalk
12:22 pm
yesterday. saying the government grants or loans could be made available to cover damages not covered by insurance. listen to david, the owner of jimmy's breakfast. his business is across the street from where the fire hit. >> it's the worst feeling, because we are standing here with my friends watching the buildings destroyed. and we all pulled through with sandy. we got it up and got it done. hopeing for a good future. to sit back like this is heartbreaking. >> less than 48 hours after the blaze, investigators say it's still too soon to know what started the devastating fire. overnight, the firefighters were still dousing minor hot spots. >> the folks on the ground are working side-by-side with the fire investigation team. to ensure that evidence is preserved. to that point i know there are a lot of questions about how the fire started. we done know yet. it would be irresponsible for us of us to speculate.
12:23 pm
>> the fire thought to have started at a frozen custard shop along the boardwalk, 25, 30-mile-per-hour winds fueling it north. the fire stopping after the firefighters dug a trench along thewoodwalk. >> uma: thank you for the update. as we have been reporting there is a deal now on syria's chemicachemical weapons stockpi. can we trust the deal to be upheld? >> you know i'm hoping that the russians and the syrians are insere. >> uma: my one-on-one with kentucky senator rand paul after the break. stay with us. of getting something "new." and now, there's a plan that lets you experience that "new" phone thrill again and again.

>> uma: welcome back. take a quick look now at stories making headlines.
12:28 pm
convoy of the national guard trucks are ferrying stranded residents in floodwaters of colorado. thousands of people have been evacuated. so far, four people are known dead. more than 200 others are missing. secretary of state john kerry and russian foreign minister labrov say they have a deal to store chemical weapons. leaders say it's a blow to the effort and isn't tough enough on bashar assad. researchers say they created a vaccine that can wipe out hiv. that news will analyze study in "nature." it was tested on monkeys. not clear when it will be tested on humans. california governor jerry brown says he will sign a bill for the state to provide driver's license to illegal immigrants. that is a quick look at stories making news right now.
12:29 pm
after diplomats on both sides look to the night, u.s. and russia have a deal on what will be done to rid sire of the chemical weapons. syria has a week to declare the site and location of the stockpile. the deal plans to impose the u.n. penalties if assad's regime fails to comply. earlier i had a chance to talk to senator rand paul and ask him if he thinks the u.s. is conceding superpower status to russia. >> it's not like we're in seventh grade, they're winning, we're losing. what is important is we get the result we want and the result is that if chemical weapons are taken out of syrian hands and put in international hands. if we get that, i'm not one saying i did this and the president didn't do this. the president can take all the credit he wants. you know, i don't think it's about sorting out and giving
12:30 pm
credit to one side or the other. >> uma: do you think, though, we have a pause in military action against syria, because russia and syria were concerned about the military strike power in the sense that they were concerned something would iminnocently going to happen? or did this happen due to incompetence by the white house? >> this is a little hard to tell whether it was on purpose or inadvertent. i would say you can make a couple of arguments. make an argument only with the threat of force they would have done this. you can make an argument that i have made that people like me who have slowed the process down and said military force is not a good idea. that if we bombed them three weeks ago we would have had no chance for a diplomatic solution. so by deliberating. coming to congress, which is what the constitution dictates, maybe we will get to a diplomatic solution. i say maybe, i don't know yet. >> that leads me to the next question how far can we trust putin or assad for that
12:31 pm
matter? >> that is a good question. diplomacy starts out with some trust. some distrust. great deal of watchfulness. so when reagan went to the diplomatic negotiations with the russians he said trust but verify. that admonition still holds true. >> much is being said of president putin's on-ed piece in the "new york times." what is your reaction to the way putin lectured the united statessying america is no longer the model of democracy today? >> there is irony there. it doesn't behoove russian to tweak us and lecture us if they want a diplomatic solution. if you and i want to make an agreement and we're on opposite sides of the fence. if i call you a name and say in the past you behave this way, i don't think that is a good way to have diplomacy. i don't think it has helped move the ball along for him to have behaved this way in the
12:32 pm
editorial. >> uma: do you think, though, if putin emerges strong throughout the process it could embolden him to have a major influence in the region; particularly, when it comes to helping iran with the nuclear ambitions down the road? >> i don't think it's a game for the schoolyard. we're not competing to say who looks or acts the strongest. america is the sole remaining superpower. probably every imaginable way. i think that we are also a superpower in the sense we reserve that power for only to use it reluctantly. no, i don't fear russia. i don't fear russia having undue influence in the middle east. i think really the -- we need to work together all of us to figure out a way out of a lot of problems in the middle east. i don't think we should discount trying to get russia to understand that it's in her self-interest to, you know, try to get civil war to end.
12:33 pm
try to get the chemical whens out of syria. try to talk iran down from developing nuclear weapon. all of those things are not only in our interest but we need to convince russia they are in their interest as well. >> uma: what do you hear of the opposition forces, rebels on the ground asking for the u.s. support. they want more weapons from the united states. there are many people in congress pushing for this. do you think it should happen? >> i'm hesitant to give whens to al-qaeda or rebels. that shot and killed previouses, kidnapped bishops, they have beheaded people on video and they have eaten the organs, there discrepancy if it's heart or liver but there
12:34 pm
are atrocity osen both sides and no clear-cut guaranteed american ally in the war. >> quickly, what do you look for in the days ahead if terms of progress? >> i am hoping that the russians and the syrians are sincere. i can't guarantee that. i hope for a diplomatic solution. i don't think a military solution will work. i think it will make the situation worse. i just can't see my son or your son or your daughter fighting in the war with no clear-cut american interest. >> uma: senator paul, thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> uma: former south african president nelson mandela is at home and he is continuing to confront life-threatening lung infection. he remains in critical condition. kelly wright spoke with mandela's daughter and granddaughters in a erecent trip to the u.s.

. well, it's an unbelievable outer space milestone. after 36 years, nasa's famed voyager 1 has become the first to leave for space. it far exceeded expectations. joining us now, dr. edward stone. so great to have you here. i'm so excited to talk to you about this. i know when this space probe was first launched, few could ever fantasize that it would ever take on this type of a voyage. >> that's right, and when voyager was launched, we were on a four-year mission just to fly

by jupiter and saturn. and everything that's happened since has been a bonus, if you like. >> you must be very excited knowing that this is a little spacecraft that could because it's quite simplistic compared to what we have now. >> that's right. the computers, of course, were designed in the early '70s. they have very little memory. i think a smartphone today has 247,000 times more memory than the voyagers of spacecraft have. but they can really do the job because they're so reliable. >> what messages have you been receiving over the past few years that really has captured your imagination? >> we hoped we would reach interstellar space, the space between the stars. for the first 35 years, we were inside a bubble created by our sun. and now a year ago, we now know that in fact we left that bubble and entered the space between the stars.
12:57 pm
>> it's really amazing, and i know that there is a disk on board the spacecraft just in case there might be intelligent life out there that encounter voyager 1. tell us about that. >> this was a phonograph record, actually, a long-playing phonograph with grooves, and it does have various greetings from earth in different languages, music from earth in different cultures. it has sounds of earth, both natural and human made sounds, and has a little over 100 images of earth of this place that sent this ambassador to the milky way galaxy. >> it's an amazing ambassador, indeed. what has allowed it to remain intact all these many years? >> fortunately, we have a very robust power supply. it's the natural radioactive decay of plutonium 238 and that supplies heat, which is
12:58 pm
converted to electricity. we will have enough power to keep communicating back to earth until about 2025 when we'll have to turn off our last science instrument. >> now, i know that you're very excited about what lies ahead. what are your expectations as it moves forward in space? >> outside, where we are now, there is a wind that has come from the explosion of other stars 5 or 10 million years ago, and we'll see how that material from those stars is piling up in front of the bubble the sun creates around itself. the bubble is sort of like a rock in a stream, and the water in the stream piles up as it turns around the rock. that's happening to the material that has come from these other stars. >> well, it's quite an accomplishment, and something that we never thought was going to happen. but we finally have a spacecraft that has left our solar system bound for parts unknown. thank you so much for joining us, we really appreciate it.
