in the chair we learned from the ap who is reporting that chen is on a united airlines flight to newark liberty airport. is he expected to arrive sometime in the 4:00 p.m. hour this afternoon. that's a 12 hour and 24 minute flight. we know chen has been telling his friends that he is happy to leave china but is he a little bit reserved and worried about what is going to happen to the members of his family. he he broke his foot breaking out of his house arrest last month and he was taken directly to the airport in beijing by officials at the hospital where he was being treated. the last update that we got from the state department, they said his foot should not be an issue in his travel. listen. >> do you have any updated on his health status? could he, if he were given, a passport and then a visa, we
have been in contact with him a couple times yesterday and today my understanding is leg and foot are healing well. he is starting to move around in his cast. we don't have any reason to believe that there would be health restrictions in his travel. >> now, that was from thursday. and she turned out to be right because we do know he is, according to the a.p., on this flight and the american nonprofit china aid based out of texas says that we sank the chinese central government by fulfilling one of her commitments by facilitating chen's trip to the u.s. we have calls out to the state department right now. we're waiting for an official comment from them. we will keep you posted as the morning goes on. back to you. >> thank you, peter. appreciate it let's get to other stories making headlines right now. this is another fox news alert. the eurozone crisis and other economic issues set to take center stage at the g-8 summit today. the meeting bringing together. president obama hosting a

we're envy. it's job envy, it's wealth envy, that we don't dream. my mother believed and my father believed that if i wanted to be president of the united states, i could be. i could be v vice president. my mother and father believed that if my brother or sister wanted to be a millionaire, they could be a millionaire. my mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams! >> look, i stead yesterday and i will say it more calmly today.

at the end of this discussion, joe biden then comes out and attacks mitt romney for being wealthy, a rich guy. on the one hand saying this isn't class warfare we all interest v. big dreams but at the same time attacking the rich guy. >> it's the notion of they that i can't figure out they the rich guys think differently than us. the rich guys is the ones raising all the money for the democrats right now. george clooney raising millions of dollars. president obama is loaded worth in the neighborhood of $10 million. so, not exactly the average middle class family are the obamas. but mitt romney clearly making this about the economy, trying to shut out everything else. here is his message. >> he went out and borrowed $787 billion and said that if we were allowing -- congress allowed him to borrow that kind of money that he would hold unemployment below 8%. it hasn't been below 8% since. a lot of people said that is outrageous yeah but we put in
place a whole series of elements that are critical to the future of america. and you have got one behind us right there. that's what they're saying. [ applause ] this is the absolute bring to nowhere if there ever was one. that's your stimulus dollars at work. a bridge that goes nowhere. >> that's the sawyer bridge in new hampshire. you know, you see the obama campaign ads which are these attack ads and then you see things like this. and mitt romney has a new ad coming out. first add general election and basically about what i'm going to do on day one. keystone pipeline, that you will business. you know, is he talking about the future. >> obama care, tax cuts. >> when i hear attack ads at this point whether it's from the republicans or democrats you know what i hear wa, wa, wa. >> not really until august, the obama administration cease this as an opportunity for two months now to define mitt romney before mitt romney can define himself. his approval rates are going up. this is an opportunity right now given these economic numbers to try to frame mitt
romney in this way. under president obama 16 states have gained jobs. and look at this, 34 states have now lost a combined 1.4 million jobs. but, the white house now saying, look, 22 states have seen unemployment now drop below 7%. this is a good sign. so two thirds of all united states now have unemployment below 7%, which is a good sign for the white house. >> yeah. jobs numbers are offed in the eye of the beholder and how you spin them because, of course, opponents of that would say the number has come down because some people have left the workforce. i found it interesting they broke downstate by state and the states that are creating the most jobs are north dakota. >> texas. >> and texas. all about energy. not green energy, but, of course, oil and gas. >> and manufacturing. >> and manufacturing. so, it is interesting to look inside to see where this economy is headed. >> on that note, we have got to go. coming up the house approved a
multi-million-dollar defense budget even though the white house opposes it. what does that mean for our troops? we'll talk about that. >> this is what happens when you try to get jigy with it on will smith. the details on this reporter smack down coming up. there it is. love tap combines the comfort of aircool memory foam layered on top of beautyrest pocketed coils to promote proper sleeping posture all night long. the revolutionary recharge sleep system from beautyrest... it's you, fully charged.

greatest military. they are top leaders, succeeded in new areas that were restricted to them before and they offer some leadership tips that apply to everyone. >> apply to every executive woman trying to climb the ladder. great lesson a lot to be learned from. back to this spending issue. the house pushing through an increase over what the president wants. now, leon panetta our own defense secretary says that could happy hurt because the disagreement could prevent some of the cuts that need to be made is this the wrong time to be cutting our defense budget or is it is the perfect time. >> the coast where i live we are next to the air force base. when we hear the jets soaring above we call that the sound of freedom. my question would be what is the cost to defend and protect that freedom. in a time fiscal constraint what do our soldiers, airmen,
coast guard men and women need to effect a mission that they have been given with quality and top success. >> these are also missions that are so unlike what we were used to in the past. we are fighting against these enemies that live in caves that during urban warfare they grab women and children and put them in front of them. mix into this motley group. it's a totally different type of enemy there are families who are dealing with their husbands and wives and mothers and fathers going out there is this a message we are not 100% on board with you? what are you hearing from your friends. >> the best that one can do is to get to know a veteran and appreciate what their service involves, the dangerous environments that they serve. in the variety of missions. >> sacrifices. >> not only the soldier that goes to the front lines but the families that stay back at home and the military child. and do people in america really understand that because only 1% of our population serves in the military. >> and today it used to be
that everyone knew someone who served in the military. their neighbor, their cousin, their brother, their uncle today it's not the same is this something to you want to armed forces day. >> take a moment to reflect and pause and understand what our service members do to protected our freedoms and give us the opportunity like we have and the ability to have a voice, to live in a democratic society. i think a lot of that is due to the members of the military who protect and defend. >> all right. martha laguardiakotite, the book is "changing the rules of engagement." i think everybody should pick it up. learn what the women had to deal with the military. apply it to the work place or whatever you do. >> she has written a up can pell books actually. >> right. >> we need to get on it. billions of your tax dollars being used tore federal tax programs. one problem it doesn't seem it to it be -- tell you more about that. >> do you want a better flying

>> federal job programs cost $18 million don't seem to be jobs. $4.01 was spent on staff salaries. is there a way to stop all of this wasteful spending? joining us is small business owner amelia antoinettey. what is going on here? we have all of these different agencies, no more than 49 job training programs spread
across nine agencies, it all seems to be flushing money down the toilet. >> it's exactly what you are doing. you can't teach what you don't know. >> explain that you can't take a group of people who have never actually employed anybody and doesn't know the resources in order to employ them and have them go teach and create these new training programs. they don't know what they're teaching. they don't understand the content. a, they don't understand what small business people are actually looking forward in order to hire. we got the cart in front of the horse. they don't know how to move people through duplicatable system. >> they create this new agency. that's not working. instead of fixing that. i'm going to create and create another agency and another agency and another agency because nobody wants to start by fixing the problem. >> there is not really a profit and loss system here. >> um-huh. >> the private sector would operate, right? >> absolutely. you are not looking at these balance sheets the same way. it's simple for them to be training people at $4 loss for every $1 that goes into it. >> you have got it have you
nailed it. that's the problem with all of these government programs there isn't a profit and loss. there is no accountability system, right? in the private sector is you invest money and report to somebody who says i want' a return on thane vestment. well, you don't have that here. there is no return on investment. if anybody looked at this they would dismantle and shut this down faster than your head could spin. >> when you are in college, you go out to these internships and oh my god now i'm actually learning this. i'm in the field. i'm working with the companies that are doing. this i'm going to blow your mind amelia, what if we took this government money and funneled it to small businesses and set up programs where we were training individuals at small businesses so the small businesses are getting the money, they are the ones doing the training, they are teaching the people, not the federal government. does that blow your mind. >> no. exactly taking like an incubator model and supporting it with microlending. give you lending and resources inside of a an incubator. that would, would.
the problem is you are not going to get buy in because all of these people want to secure their job. securing their job far more important than training people and putting them in the marketplace. you have got two competing member ofs. this is the problem over and over again. i keep saying. figure out where the money is and the motivation is all to keep people's job security not put jobs out there on or give businesses what they want. small business is desperate for more resource and desperate for more help especially in they can actually now basic there is a one-on-one dollar. i invest a dollar and they invest a dollar. immediate return on investment. we just wasted $14 billion that we would have had higher percentage of return and lower percentage of risk if we would have had the right people allocating your funds which is your small business community. >> not paying attention. >> yea private sector, bad government. >> exactly. amila, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> are you tired of those

eat that type of food. >> basically if you eat organic food you, my friend are a jerk. that's not from me. that was based on a psychological study that broke down people that actually choose organic food over inorganic food. they found those people to be far more judgmental than those who did not choose organic food. >> it's the patting themselves on the back. >> it's a self-righteousness. >> right. that's the argument. when people can pat themselves on the back for the behavior that they feel, to your point is self-righteous, then they are more inclined to be jerky when they are looking at other people, perhaps, who didn't buy that type of food. >> it's lick when you go into these really expensive, exclusive clothing stores and the sales people are looking at you like you are a piece of, you know, you know what when you are walking. in sometimes when you go to these organic food stores they do the same thing. if you ask to have something, do you have fruit platters. if you want fruit platters go to safeway.
>> here is what the professor of psychology said who performed this study. there is something about being exposed to organic food that make them feel better about themselves and that made them kind of jerks a little bit, i guess. it's really about a lot of the organic foods are marketed with moral arguments. not just the health benefits but moral incentives. >> even the moral names like honest tea. which is an organic tea. so this idea that i'm being honest with myself when i'm eating and drinking organic tea. can i see people doing. this you sort of do this. >> you are kind of a jerk. >> absolutely i'm a jerk. >> snob. >> my wife and were at wal-mart the other day. wal-mart has done a lot of organic foods. they have great selections. we bought organic burgers no preserves. don't want chemicals and stuff like this. you are buying all this food lettuce and different things. looking behind you in the line like that person has tons of processed food. can you see yourself saying. >> you are making this moral

this week. we were curious as to what the campaign message would be. remember last week on the show because obviously the discussion over gay marriage how would the obama administration frame the argument going forward. now we have some- >> -- there has been a lot of distracting side issues up until the last couple of days. now the battle has been clearly framed. of course, by mitt romney and not necessarily by the president. but by his vice president, joe biden. some say a little too angry this week. but clearly he has a message. >> i resent the fact that they think we're talking about we're envy. it's job envy. it's wealth envy. that we don't dream. my mother believed and my father believed that if i wanted to be president of the united states, i could be. i could be vice president. my mother and father believed that if my. [cheers] >> my brother or sister wanted to be a millionaire, they could be a millionaire. my mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams! >> look, i said it yesterday
and i will say it more calmly today,.

course, is still in the fixed in this empty repair job. sort of emblematic. mitt romney is going around the country and stood in front of abandoned factories and yesterday standing in front of this decrepit bridge which was supposed to be part of the stimulus money to be fixed as president obama asked for some 700 and some billion dollars to improve infrafracture. all weationed on stimulus. this bridge behind me is a bridge to nowhere. listen. >> he went out and borrowed $787 billion and said that if we were allowing the -- as congress allowed him to borrow that kind of money he would hold unemployment below 8% it hasn't been below 8% since. a lot of people have said yes that's outrageous. we put in whole series of elements critical to the future of america. you have one behind us right there. that's what they're saying. this is the absolute bridge to nowhere if there ever was one. that's your stimulus dollars at work. a ridge that goes nowhere.
>> mitt romney there in new hampshire. it really does depend on where you are how to you tailor that economic message because we got new data last night about how the unemployment rate has gone up or down in 16 states it seems just 16 states have gained jobs in the obama administration. 34 states have lost a combined 1.4 million jobs. but there is, againsting on how you look good news as well. >> look the other way, the white house is doing just that hey, look, this is great. two out of every three states now, the unemployment rate has dropped below 7%. but then the other side is saying well, look, the areas in the states that those are dropped in are areas like texas, areas like indiana. areas like ohio. the worst state is california. has a massive budget punch. >> taxes where they continue to increase taxes specifically on the rich. people continue to leave and go to your point to texas also north dakota. >> kerry was crowing about
that when he was hoping to run for president. >> my congratulation there. >> and romney's favorability up to 40%,. >> that's a gun poll. >> g.o.p. is pushing really hard on attorney general eric holder in an effort to try to find out what that department at the department of justice knew about the fast and furious scandal and where does the accountability begin? where does it end? yesterday, speaker boehner says wants the department of justice held accountable and he wants all of the information on the table. take a listen. >> today, our leadership team sent a letter to attorney general holder asking him to comply with the subpoena and "for information. we are -- we want to hold
everyone at the department of justice and the administration accountability -- accountable for what happened and what didn't happen in fast and furious. all options are on the table. >> you are saying if the attorney general does not comply with your request, does not respond favorably to your letter you are going to put a contempt resolution on the floor. >> george, what i said are all options are on the table. >> all options on the table. so, there you go. and the latest on that, which is a 15-month investigation now as that continues. 15 months,. >> you want the bad news for the obama administration van jones, the former green jobs czar he was critical of the obama administration's handling of fast and furious this week. suggesting if it happened in canada it would receive a lot greater attention than it does because it happened in mexico. >> you know it's bad news for you when you have got. >> friendly fire from van jones. >> more on that coming up. >> let's get to some headlines though and another fox news alert. this eurozone crisis and other economic issues said to take
center stage at the g-8 summit today. the meeting bringing together the world's top leaders. president obama hosted them for a dinner at camp david last night. the main topic of conversation, diplomatic issues, especially concerning iran. among other things. they agreed the iranian government needs to disclose more. about its nuclear ambitions. same old story. president obama will hold a press conference from camp david later on this morning. so stay tuned. we will give you live coverage for that one. police meantime are calling him the highway killer. 28-year-old james wily, he is charged with murdering two drivers on the side of the road in mississippi this month. at first authorities thought the killer might have been posing as a police officer. and ambushing drivers late at night. now they say that wasn't the case exactly. they say wily robbed his victims to get money for drugs. if convicted. he could face the death penalty. a new report finds that nearly $800 million in federal grant money has gone unspent. republic senator tomko burn

are stunned when you first get into that mud and it's freezing cold muddy water. >> by the way it's not just mud, it's rocks. >> so i'm with kilmeade. i think that part. >> all right. let's talk quickly about the weather. we have severe storms today across the plains. showers across parts of the east coast. we have lighter winds in arizona and colorado which is good for those fires out there. also a big thing that a lot of people are excited for it's tomorrow first annular. ring of the sun. mostly the western part of the country that's going to see it we will see a partial eclipse anywhere you see that yellow. live in the strip from midland back over towards reno and northern california right around sun set you are going to see a complete annular eclipse. a very exciting event for those guys tomorrow. weather by the way looking good for everybody along that stripe. guys? >> glad have you warm weather today for your big adventure
it? >> should warm up by 9:30. that's what i'm happy about. mitt romney says the reverend wright ads are the wrong course for his campaign. will taking the high road help or hurt him? we debate that next. >> high speed chase caught on camera. a man so desperate to get away from the cops and he stops right here and, watch this. he just decides i'm not going to jump off the bridge that will get me away from those cops. did he get away? the details coming up. wake up!
listen. >> i resent the fact that they think we are talking about we're envy. it's job envy. it's wealth envy. that we don't dream. my mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams. they don't get us. they don't get who we are. >> but as word got out as a controversial ad blitz linking the president to reverend jeremiah wright. romney denounced the effort and immediately called to the end to the personal attack the. >> i want to make it very clear. i repudiate that effort. i think it's the wrong course for a pac or a campaign. i hope that our campaigns can respectively be about the future and about issues. and about a vision for america. i have been disappointed in the president's campaign to date, which is focused on character assassination. >> all right. so, what approach will win out against among voters nasty or nice? here with the fair and balanced debate. tony cats and fox news
contributor ellis henican both of whom plus i have agreed to give $100 to mr. scaredy cat clayton to do this mudder thing. so just leave that. see what clayton has to say. >> wounded warriors he doesn't even get it. >> bringing up reverend wright, good move or bad move mood. >> don't you love the holier than thou mitt romney after what he did to newt gingrich and -- the attack ads he killed them in the primaries. i think it's totally fine they should try to slime the president, throw all this stuff at him because we know from four years ago it simply did not work. you are not going to beat barack obama on the character issue. >> it's still 2008 that's the prism at which they look at president obama. as a question of straight-out strategy no i'm not super in favor of it. stick to economy economy economy, jobs jobs jobs.
you look at that ad which rom romney put out. day one keystone pipeline. obama is third on that ad which is kind of impressive. when vice president biden talks about being i resent being called a racist because i'm a member of the tea party. i don't want him talking about his scrappy scranton upbringing and recents the class and race warfare when they engage in class and race warfare. >> when i hear the attack stuff i start tuning it out. you expect to hear that from both sides. what i want to hear is what is going to be done to help this country get better. >> clearly, there are fundamental differences between the view of america that these two parties have. who it is ought to pay the freight. whether the people at the very top ought to take some of the responsibility. >> because they don't now. not at all. >> look how many taxes mitt romney pays if you want to get into the details of it. that's a great debate. it's going to be ugly because there is a lot of money out there. let's have that debate. >> there is a lot of money out there and what the progressives say is let's take that money and grab all of it
like the golden dawn party out there in greece where the leader of that party has stated that imrees is a rich country. they don't need the imf bailouts. greece is a rich country. it's not a rich country talking about taking from rich people. you cannot have a society that just takes. i think romney should not use -- in the campaign. >> clayton will hopefully take our money. 100 be out there doing the tough mudder competition for the wounded warriors, clayton. >> come on, clayton. come on. >> thank you, guys for jing us today. always good to see you. we used to work together years ago. >> we'll pay not to go. >> this is a serious one. we will talk about this in the break. he assaulted a federal agent and killed man. what's his punishment? he wrote a book report is this justice? fair and balanced debate still ahead. then your kids probably spend more time on facebook than they do talking to you. so should you be worried? should you take control over their cyber activity? we report, you decide. ♪

it's no different than maybe it was during the 80's when you see the 80's teen girl lay be on the bed talking four hours to her best friend. somehow it different today? >> it's a different kind of tool. first of all digital. if it's used wisely it can be a great tool by the way. if it's used improperly, it can have real social and emotional consequences for kids. it can be anonymous. not looking at someone in the face like i'm looking at you now. don't have an understanding of the emotion involved. it can change the dialogue. kids curate their photos all day every date. >> set time limits. that's a hard thing to do. tip one, how much time should a kid be allowed to be on facebook or social media. >> not so much. your kids younger and my kids teens you don't want them on there two or three times a day. fine for them to check where the latest event. too much time in front of a screen is in the healthy for kids and not healthy for the way they relate to other people oftentimes. >> choose age-appropriate material. there is a gray area.
how do you say you can't have access to that? >> you can go to a site like common sense.org and find out what is right for your kid. and every parent needs to think about that young people need to consider stuff because there is so much out there whether it's porn or inappropriate violence. stuff there is a loft steeler on the web that you can get to it through facebook and other platforms you have to be concerned about. >> go to common sense can you find out age appropriate applications for ipad and iphone and those things on there. you mentioned unplug. get the kids, we talked about this on the show last week try to get kids for the summer to unplug for just a small amount of time. >> that's a huge theme talking back to facebook. look, you and i both know the best relationships and experiences in life are not in front of the screen and not digital. they are with other people. they are outside in this incredible world we live in. you do need to unplug. for parents out there that is such an important message. >> i find this next point really fascinating. maybe you can take it through this a little bit here. learn their world. you and i use text messages to communicate hey i will be five
minutes late for lunch. they are using text messages in dialogue fashion much differently than we're. >> you know, clayton, that he very important. you have to do your homework. we did not grow up with this. when we were growing up there was no facebook or youtubes or ipads or iphones. it's different for parents. you have to embrace their world. the genie is out of the bottle. we just saw the facebook ipo, it's not going to go away. you have to use it and then you have to understand it and set some limits. because, common sense parenting really matters. >> one big common sense thing that people don't do is put a commuter in a common room of the house. they will put it up the kid's room. that's a huge mistake. put the computer in a main area, why? >> location location location. the classic real estate line is absolutely true for media. a tv set or computer should not be in the bedroom. the challenge comes when you give your kids phones or they have ipads because it's so easy to go in your room. the point of it being in a common room because you as a parent have access to it and you can set your limits and values. location does really matter with devices. at night, you know, phones
keep kids up. they actually interfere with sleep because of the constant stimulation from text messages. don't let your kid go to bed with your cell phone. a third of teens text messages are sent after lights are supposed to be out. so, remember that. >> take them out of the room put them in some common area. jim styer the book is called "talking back to facebook. great read. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you, clayton. >> talk about a graduation president. one girl getting a big surprise from her soldier brother as she grabs her diploma. awesome. more on that reunion still ahead. are you ready to get muddy, clayton who is still ignoring me. greg briggs, rick reichmuth are as well. >> are you? >> i have plans after the show if you would have asked me a little bit earlier of course i would have. all of that coming up.

>> new $70 bailout plan is on the table. help create jobs in our nation's public schools. a similar 10 billion-dollar plan passed didn't have much of an impact. do public schools have a funding problem or a spending problem? >> joining us now is kyle, the founder of eag news.com with more on this. kyle, nice to see you this morning. kyle? >> good morning. >> so tell us about this new edu jobs fund. is it going to do what the last one failed to do? >> well, it's hard to believe
that because there has been no analysis whether or not this additional spend something having any impact on student achievement. to me, that's what it should all be about is with r. we doing things are we spending dollars that will lead to student achievement? to date, the answer has been no. >> this is a plan pitched by u.s. rep joe crowley democrat here in new york. $70 billion bailout plan. take a look at some the things that we're talking about here. total funds awarded were $10 billion. total funds received $8 billion. number of funded jobs 95. why would he be pitching this if this looks like a failure? >> well, i think it's hard to judge his motives difficult to do that here we are in election year and continuing
to spend more money on government jobs i think unfortunately is the democrat's jobs plan. that really is kind of the limit of their imagination spurring jobs growth. spending money on public schools. continuing to increase that level of spending is not doing anything for student achievement. in fact, there was a stud i can't that was just put out from nevada which showed that in that particular state, and i think it's true across the country, spending continues to go up. but student achievement is flat or is declining. one of the from things. $10 billion broom have given the states. this money is simply a handout to the teachers unions. election year. almost election year. this money is being handed out to teachers unions what are you saying to that? political talk or truth to that? >> well, i think there is truth to that. teachers in unions pays duce
goes to political activity and pushing out the vote and those sorts of things. the calculations that we have done has showed that the national education association is which is the larmtest teacher's union. save or create $100 million in dues, and the aft. the american federation of teachers is about $35 million. so clearly there is a huge incentive for the unions to see this type of legislation pass. >> kyle olson, founder of eagle news.com. thank you very much for joining us. very quickly, you are now joining in the wounded warriors fund? >> that's right. >> to get me to do it for $2,000, we're up to $400. and kyle, you have something you want to say? >> sure, i had a couple friends do the tough mudder in vermont a couple weeks ago. and i saw doocy do it yesterday. so i want to give $500 if clayton will do that this morning. >> thank you very much, kyle. $900 now. see if the rest of our guests will be so generous.
>> or our viewers. >> only have an hour left. >> you are shaking in your shoes, aren't you? >> i am. >> coming up on the show, he has admitted to shooting a man to death. is he facing charges for assaulting a federal agent. what's his punishment? write a book report. sound like justice to you? we'll debate that coming up next. born to leap, born to stalk, and born to pounce. to understand why, we journeyed to africa, where their wild ancestor was born. there we discovered that cats, no matter where they are... are born toe cats. and shouldn't your cat be who he was born to be? discover your cat's true nature. purina one.
>> welcome back. ottis mobley jr. assaulted a federal agent. tried to bay grenade launcher and killed a man during a drug deal. what's his punishment? reading and writing book reports. joining us to weigh in on this is defense attorney arthur idol. arthur, you are taking the defense on this. you think it's okay for this guy to have to write a book
report? >> are we allowed to venture in the area of the truth here. >> why not? >> the truth is this is not his ultimate punishment. this is what has to happen while they are waiting for the case to go to trial. this is his bail package. so like everyone else, you go in front of a judge, whether in state without or federal court. you hear the charges, judge i'm afraid is he going to flee. the defense attorney says no, judge, is he not going anywhere. in this particular case the guy doesn't travel or have a passport. family was there and said they would watch him. they agreed for him to wear electronic bracelet. >> what's the problem here. >> the problem is whenever you are setting bail there is two things you have to worry about. whether the defendant is a flight risk, which he clearly is because if he is found guilty he is going to go away for a long time and whether is he a danger to the community. he killed a drug dealer, he beat up a federal agent and tried to buy a grenade launcher, this guy should be sitting in jail. here is my question to the judge. what kind of light reading is going to change this guy around? >> rehabilitation process. >> wait a minute. writing a book report, arthur?
you are laughing while you are saying t t. >> in federal court, versus state court. even though the sentence is appear more harsh, in federal court. the judges are very likely to allow people to flee -- to not flee to go out on bail. you know why? because the united states of america has the resources to find somebody like this. the first time they use a credit card an easy pass, anything that identifies them. they find them like this. the electronic bracelet program, and his family support, the judge says you are going to stay home. the government is not going to pay for you to sit in jail. >> you are making the argument he shouldn't even be sitting out any i. with a. he shouldn't be sitting there doing book reports because he killed someone he should be behind bars. >> he is not going to be tried for that in this case. he should be behind bars. [ applause ] >> get credit for telling the truth on tv. >> arthur i will bring you ankle monitor next time i see you. take you three seconds to get that baby off. yes, it is. >> the fbi, the cia secret
service. the resources of the united states of america to grab this guy. >> maybe get him for not returning a library book in this case. >> we already tried. we here at "fox & friends" have tried to put ankle bracelet on arthur. >> and also my ankles are fat. >> arthur has given a lot of money to the wounded warriors project. we have the tough mudder competition out on the plaza. jonah has mentioned to me we raised $900 to get me to go through this course. jonah is putting up $500 to the wounded warriors. >> raise 9. >> i will put up an even 6. we only need 500 more. >> 500 more for the wounded warriors project to get me to do it. >> help us out. everyone is getting involved here. the viewers are all over it. we are way past 2,000. >> oh, awesome. >> i want hard numbers. >> thanks, guys. coming up on the show the energy department's loan program back in the spotlight for giving green energy companies your tax dollars.

you a jerk? >> the buying it? >> buying it, eating it. >> or eating it. >> i think they go hand in hand perhaps. if you buy it? >> perhaps. >> a little distracted right now by this whole mudder thing. >> issue with the study is the idea you are buying this organic food to dave's point you take it home and eat it. buy it and standing in line judging people who aren't buying the organic food. >> you said did you that you go to the store and buy your child all the organic stuff which tends to be a little build more expensive. you big bucks here on the curvey couch. >> why skimp on things that are about your body's health, right? we are the only country in the world spend less on our take home pay on food than other countries do. get food not filled can chemicals. standing there at check out line and you want to eat healthy. dave disagrees with me. >> this was actually a study, people. they actually studied it. they broke down the psychology of people that choose organic foods. this is from a psychology
professor not from us. quote: there is something about being exposed to organic food that made these people feel better about themselves. and that made them kind of jerks. a little bit, i guess. what happened is the folks that chose the organic foods seemed to be more judgmental of people and their quality and what they are doing and why they do it because largely organic foods are sold with a moral argument. you know,. >> like the names of certain foods like honest tea is an organic tea but it makes you somehow feel like you are being more honest with yourself because you are drinking that tea with that name. >> i know a lot of immoral people that buy organic. >> you eat organic food, right? >> i don't go out of my way. >> you don't? >> whatever. >> you care about your health. but i mean i don't think we stand in judgment of other people because they are eating poor food for their health. >> do you judge people when they are in front of you and go through the supermarket line guy says paper or plastic and they say whatever or
plastic? >> no. i'm a whatever guy on that, too. but that's one of the things in the argument, also, that those people who are asked to bring their own bags are also in a judgment. >> i always laugh of people when i see them walking in with their own bags. >> i do that from time to time. >> my wife brings her own bags. don't laugh at her. >> really? >> twitter. help us donate to wounded warriors. all right? >> i wonder what it's up to now, clayton, i think you are going to be doing this course. >> keep it coming. next on the run down though, the government use your tax dollars to fund green energy companies. was it all for nothing? >> people who can't make their house payments, can't make their car payments. can't put food on the table. can't educate their kids we are find out that we're pouring money down an open hole and the chief executive officer is bailed out. >> that fired up lawmaker following the paper trail. congressman mike kelly here next. >> this is what happens' when you try to get jigy with will smith. details on this reporter

pope line is the hard working american taxpayers need to know and be told the truth about where their money is going. i keep hearing about we have got to make these risks and investments, quite frankly the money they are pouring the money into are venture capitalists. once they get that money they cut bait and run. a only people still left with money in the game is the american taxpayers. important for people to understand look there is great science out there. way ahead of the market. it's not affordable. the government has gamed it in a way that you have to buy 20%. a lot of these areas you have to buy 20% of your power fromee niewbles. they are forcing a market on the public. driving their energy costs up. we keep pouring billions of dollars in. we see nothing in a positive return on that investment for american taxpayers. that's where i think with our committee. we are saying please stop wasting taxpayer money at a time when we are borrowing 40 cents on every dollar we spent and pouring it down an open hole it doesn't make sense to me. >> so far congressman, $16 billion in loans have been guaranteed to 26 solar firms
that includes, of course, solyndra. is there something behind those loans in your opinion? is there a particular reason why these particular companies are chosen beyond being the best technology? >> well, i mean, technology, best technology for what. there is a lot of great technology out there. science is always -- innovation has always been the hallmark of american entrepreneurship. you go with technology available to the market today. not for this hope and dream that you have some time in the future quite frankly right now is not affordable. >> got politics at play. is that your suggestion? >> of course, there is always politics at play. when you look at the trail. the paper trail that leaves meetings up as far as the white house and the vice president, these folks going in talking to them and telling them how difficult it is for them and how much they need to support and the president says in the state of the union all the times listen we are going for all of the above and discounts all the below. the emphasis is on green technology, which is very expensive right now and away from fossils which are
affordable, accessible and abundant. why are we doing this to american taxpayers. these guys are great guys, venture capitalists. they invest and invest for one reason to make money. when they see they are not going to make money they bail out. look at some of the ceos they took $2 billion out and ran with it they took their money and ran and left the taxpayer money in. >> the ceo how are talking about from first solar actually was testifying there. weighs one of the individuals who actually sold stock options $400 million of his personal stock in recent years. the question is did he do that on the back of taxpayers? what do you say? what did he say in those hearings that made you -- way swayed you one way or the other. >> what he said is what i would expect any smart investor to say the market was tanking. i decided to get out. company stock trading at $303. when i looked the other day it was below $15 a share. the american taxpayers don't have that ability to cut and run. they are in it for the long run. whether this thing makes it or doesn't make it. they are still in it why are we taking money and risking
it? taxpayer money? this is not private individuals' money. they couldn't get funded in the open market. so what they do is go to the government. the government hangs out this carrot. they go after it. and then they bail. when they see the markets tanking. he did what any smart investor would do. we you are not able to do as taxpayers and not say hey, whoa, timeout. get me out of this market. i'm losing too much. that's what we have to do. >> thank you, it sounds like maybe some strings need to be attached to those government dollars. maybe you can't cash out your stock. congressman mike kelly thanks for being with us. we appreciate it? >> fellows, thanks a lot. nice to be with you. >> look at this man, he steal as car with a kid in the backseat. all caught on tape. you won't believe the great move that the boy made. details on that straight ahead. >> drop that candy bar. new study says sugar is making you stupid. really? that report and more from our medical a team next. does your phone share what you are seeing and hearing right now
>> red wine drinkers and people who like sugar. new studies show that these things may have some surprising health benefits. if you are into the sweets, we're going to start with that apparently you may be in trouble. sugar can make you stupid? is that what we are hearing about this? >> juliet, this is high fructose corn syrup that we have in a lot of our beverages and prepared foods. what they did is they took at ucla they took rats and taught them a maize and fed them this high fructose corn syrup six weeks later they didn't remember the maize unless they gave them fish oil. they suddenly remembered the maize.
talking rats, number one. i don't think finance f. it's going to work in humans. i want people out there to know that sugar is really important for the brain. that's how the brain works. but if you give the wrong kind of sugar. it signals insulin the wrong way and you may get foggy and lose your memory. i think there is something here. but we have got to test this in humans. >> a little more research. wine has the same advantages as yogurt. >> we are always trying to like wine. wine has polyfeign pole phenyls antioxidants. helps digestion. it lowered blood pressure and lowered cholesterol. if you are drinking a glass of wine there may be some real benefits here. i actually believe that it increased the good bacteria in the stomach when you have wine. >> here is the caveat here though. a glass of wine. we're not talking about the bottle of wine. we're talking about the glass of wine. >> because. >> big difference. >> exactly because the alcohol itself is bad for your
stomach. so the polyfeign nells that may be good for your stomach. looked at huge amount of people and found they lived a little bit longer if they were coffee drinksers. why that is important. we always think coffee is bad for you that it raises blood pressure. >> caffeine. >> raises cholesterol. we are starting to find out in more and more studies it has benefits. may decrease your risk of certain kinds of cancer. may have antioxidant properties as well. now we are finding that a huge group actually lived a little longer of the that's not proof that coffee will make you live longer but if you are a coffee drinker the way i am, the way you are. >> yeah. >> maybe we will live a little longer as long as we don't go on these obstacle courses. >> i'm double healthy, drinking coffee and having a lot of sugar in it.
>> that's bad. >> you said good for your brain. >> no sugar or cream in this coffee. >> just testing you. always good to see. >> you great to see you. if you go on the obstacle course i'm going to help you. >> i'm not going to gone 00 obstacle course. i have plans after the show. if they would have asked me yesterday. clayton will be doing it. i have a feeling. are you going to do it snonchts. >> man in smack. actor will smith laying the smackdown on a reporter. this guy from ukraine. he was very kissy. see what caused him to go off. haven't joe biden fueling the claims of class warfare. >> dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams. >> absolutely. they don't get us. >> people want to hear governor mike huckabee will weigh in on that. and the tough mudder coming
>> go ahead, juliet. i was going to say kyle olson who we saw earlier pledged $500 wounded warrior project to have you, -- there is anna getting ready some of kyle's friends on facebook paul and ryan are they are going to going to donate. i think you are pretty much going to be doing this? >> jumping around like a monkey. >> i don't know what. >> anna coyman is about to do the tough mudder competition. all benefits wounded warriors. >> she is doing call less citizen knicks. >> she needs to save herring energy.
>> cold water gets you. >> run marathons. >> anna clearly is the fitness one. you know, we all exercise. look. i'm seeing if for the first time. guy not get over the wall on the first effort. >> it's not a race. you guys did it as a team. that's what i like. we decided we would wait for each other after each of the obstacles so we could go through together. >> i like that. >> great guys buddy brian over here who did this so incredibly well. inspired me. take a look at your weather picture quickly. couple things going on. picture coming from florida very nice sunrise picture appreciate that coming in from ocklawala i think i'm saying that right. nice day in store today.
maybe a shower or two running across that area. right now weaker up about 66 degrees. put them on my facebook page. quickly take a look at forecast for the day. around the northeast spectacular day talking about temperatures in the 70s and 80's. and a ton of sunshine. so it's going to be a great one. down to the southeast, we'll see few of those showers around the carolinas, maybe in towards the florida area as well then we are going to see temps pretty nice, humid though feeling like summer. severe weather today might see a tornado or two especially around kansas and nebraska. rain showers in the dakotas. out to the west very nice. ton of sunshine from the pacific northwest down to the southwest. dave for you we are going to be looking at temps when you do the tough mudder into the 60's. nicer than the mid 50s when i did it. >> money is rolling in. >> speaking of the tough
mudder, rick, good news, if clayton goes we talked about raising $2,000 for wounded warriors. steve does is is pledging. >> tony put up $100. >> i matched 100. >> raise $2,000 for wounded warriors i will do the tough mudder competition. >> we have blown it out of the water by thousands. >> kyle on earlier they are all facebooking. >> just donated 2 grand. >> steve does it if you go. these are contingent upon you going. >> i'll do it. >> keep it coming. first the headlines. this is going to be fantastic. renewed vigor today. we begin with a fox news alert. we are getting brand new video. frightening story out of italy where a bomb exploded out of a high school this morning. it killed a girl farge and left several others fighting for their lives. investigators say no
coincidence the school is named after falcone, a prosecutor who worked to take down the mob there in italy before they killed him and his wife in a similar blast exactly 20 years ago this weekend. the confessed mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks and four alleged accomplices could be facing separate trials. a military judge said to be proposing to split up the defendants because of the difficulty in scheduling hearings for the five men and their lawyers. the judge also questioning if one trial would create issues with evidence. that could potentially hurt one defendant but then maybe help another. the next hearing is scheduled for june but attorneys for some of the defendants have asked for a postponement. surveillance video catches a thief in denver as he tried to steal this car from a liquor store parking lot. the only problem is there is a 10-year-old boy inside. the kid eventually jumps out and then he runs to tell mom. luckily he only suffered some bruises and cuts. >> don't get fresh with the fresh prince of blair. watch will smith slap down a
ukrainian reporter after the guy tries to plant a smooch on the star. >> what is your problem? >> come on, what the hell is your problem. >> understated. man. >> what is so bad about that. >> because he was trying to punk will smith. >> no he wasn't. >> it wasn't custom. >> how do you know that? maybe there is. >> if i tried to land one on you i would. >> smith obviously was caught off guard men in black three in moscow. >> reporter involved excuse me the tv personality and his schtick is kissing celebrities. >> he is not borat. >> is he not insulting celebrities. >> barron cohen. >> that's part of huck huckabee's new stick. >> you wouldn't be cool with that. >> if i kissed anybody on othe set it won't be either of you two guys, okay? >> i like you a lot but i'm
not going there. >> neither am i. >> let's talk some politics this week. there was an interesting story that broke late this week on the front page of the names as it related to a super pac ache ad crafted that might be used that polled president -- pulled president obama and reverend wright back into the fray like 2008 all over again. mitt romney told the super pac don't do it. we want to rise above this. don't do it. was that a mistake should he? >> it was the right thing for romney to do because is he able to take the high road and say religion is off the table that's good news for romney that way if somebody tries to bring up his faith and some might try to do that he will say, look, i thought religion was off the table. having said that let me tell you, romney can't control what a super pac does, can he ask them, tell them, demand and scream and yell and take the high road. i will promise you between now and november, you are going to see some stuff that romney won't approve. he won't be happy about with
you there is not a dog geologic thing. >> john mccain make made a major mistake keeping this off the table. if mitt romney were to do it now, could it possibly help him at all. the folks he needs are independents. they are not going to be moved by a reverend wright argue. are they. >> reverend wright is not that big of issue. the big issue really would be the words of obama himself in his book. those are far more incendiary toward obama gels the fact you have a four year record now as president. that's a lot more than something he might have heard and we know from the new book that's out he didn't go to church that much anyway. he could say hey i wasn't there. those 51 out of 52 sundays when he was staying that stuff. >> we have been talking about taking the temperature of both campaigns and seeing where they are in this process and how it's interesting to see sort of the dichotomy. you have mitt romney who releases first general election ad and day one what i would do if i were elected keystone pipeline and things like that.
moving forward. then you have, you know, conversely you have the obama campaign with the attack ads and going after vice president. which is going to resonate more with americans at this point. >> i thought the romney ad was brilliant for one particular phrase. they said on day one president romney. they kept repeating the phrase president romney. conditioning people to think huh, president romney keystone, getting rid of obama care. things that made sense it elevated to presidential level. i thought it was brilliant ad. >> obama campaign cease this as an opportunity for the next two months to basically frame mitt romney for the american people who don't know him yet. they are out there trying to frame who he is to the american people. here's vice president biden talking about the republic position will this wash. we will get the governor's take. >> i resent the fact that they think we're talking about we're envy it's job envy,
wealth envy. we don't dream. >> saying basically the romney camp is saying the middle class doesn't have dreams. do you buy that argument. >> that's pretty stupid. you don't know me, dude, i'm the first male in my entire family lineage that graduated from high school much less went to college. i'm one generation away dirt floors and no electricity in imponched south arkansas. he wants to tell me about coming out of nowhere. i would love to have joe biden on the stage. let me have about 15 minutes and let's talk about where we have come from. folks there are republicans all over america who have worked their tails off who get where they are. >> against joe biden vice presidential. >> that's not going to ham. i just thought it was a ridiculously stupid thing for the vice president to go out there and try to light up the democrats because i will tell you what he has done. he has lit up republics who
have worked hard to get where they are, small business owners who resent that kind of let i can that's being employed to make it like only democrats have dreams. >> all right, the governor not vice president yet sticking around. up next, a high school facing a $15,000 fine, why? because they sell soda. and junk food. we'll explain. >> plus, it's time to get muddy. you saw rick do it. now anna coyman is taking on the challenge. practicing. >> oh, boy. get off her back. yes, you can. >> she is just testing it out. look it. she is not being a wimp. >> she is just toying with that wall. u.s. bank let's get the wheels turning. use our strength & stability to open new opportunities.

global issues with the leaders of the other g8 nations, canada, france, germany, italy, japan and russia and the u.k. and now there's also talk about afghanistan's economy and the economies of the middle east and north africa before most of the leaders head out to chicago, for the n.a.t.o. summit this weekend. at a working dinner, everyone was dressed down. iran was the magic topic of conversation, ahead of a major summit in baghdad. a white house official tells us that quote, the g8 affirmed the importance of having a unified effort in approaching these baghdad talks next week and continued to underscore a commitment to a dual track process in which we seek a diplomatic resolution to the situation in iran. now, syria was discussed at the dinner last night and russia hasn't yet publicly placed any blame for the violence there on the syrian government which kind of flies in the face of what the white house has been saying for months which is that the syrian president assad should step down, but the white house
tells us that specific regime was not discussed last night, rather, j us a need for an overall transition and there were a few light moments, it wasn't all business, like when france's new president alan was the only one who showed up wearing a tie and the president sees him a little bit and they start talking about serious things, back to you. >> he said it's press, and nervous how his press would react, thank you, peter, appreciate it. >> that's right. >> interesting how it sets up at the g8. they want to push, instead of the awusterity measures, they want to push growth and stimulus, kind of like how obama versus romney in the campaign and maybe president obama sees more ally in the new french president alliance with president obama's belief system not just austerity how he won the election over there by the way. the vice-president's remarks catching a lot on fire,
talking about the rich and focusing this debate now between the rich and the middle class. and the have's and the have notes. mitt romney maybe not getting in the mud so to speak, and went in front of a bridge yesterday. which was empty, abandoned. falling apart. which was supposed to be a symbol of the stimulus money well spent by the obama administration, so it's still sitting in the ruins, listen to mitt romney. >> borrowed 787 billion dollars and said if we were allowing-- as congress allowed him to borrow that kind of money that he would hold unemployment below 8% and hasn't been below 8% since. that's just outrageous yeah, but we put in place a full series of elements that are critical to the future of america, and you've got one behind us right there. that's what they're saying, this is the bridge to nowhere if there was one. that's his stimulus dollars at work. the bridge that goes nowhere.
>> the sawyer bridge. the white house arguing look, we didn't give enough in stimulus money, there wasn't enough on the projects and therefore some of the money wasn't doled out properly and have infrastructure projects that need repair. >> that's a problem. whether or not there was money and he say, well, it wasn't doled out. still, that's a problem. >> clayton: jobs at the heart of this. how does that create jobs fixing one bridge. is that a government job that goes away, a shovel-ready prnlg that never was, these are the arguments. >> dave: and the main guy behind the stimulus, trying to sell it on the stump was of course joe biden. he's not talking stimulus, perhaps that didn't work well. and now he's turned to that battle against the rich. listen. >> i recent the fact that they think we're talking about envy, it's job envy, it's wealth envy, that we don't dream. my mother believed and my father believed that if i wanted to be president of the
united states, i could be, i could be vice-president. my mother and father believed that if my brother or sister wanted to be a millionaire, they could be a millionaire. my mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams. >> look, i said yesterday and i'll say it more calmly today, i don't think these guys understands us, and i'm included us because we come from the same kind of background, and we weren't poor, i wasn't joe biden come out of the mines in scranton with a lunch bucket in my hand, just a normal middle class kid with a father with a middle class education and worked like hell. >> and then you have mitt romney releases his first general election ad, called day one, and you know, pretty much everybody you talk to says it's a fairly effective ad, and listen.
the first day after being elected when he finally takes office. >> this is what governor huckabee was saying, the pipeline. >> saying that president romney over and over and over again sets the tone for what framing mitt romney as the president, so it's effective ad. >> dave: we want to mention we're awaiting the president' remarks in camp david at g8 summit and take it in his entirety, and hoping that the measures that he's taking here in the united states have worked and this is why you should take them abroad and they would say that the stimulus did work, just look at our unemployment rate and it depends upon how you see this recent jobs data. because on one hand, only 16 states have now gained jobs under the obama administration. and so, it appears that some of these stimulus activities may have not worked, again, depending how you see it, clayton. >> right, and then the unemployment in other states going down in 22 states, dropping below 7%, so, by all

lot of money from bain capital. almost mitt romney since 2007. is that something they should be doing all the while talking bad about his time there? >> look, i mean, i think it's unavoidable that they're going to make bain capital into an issue, right? the obama people are trying to do the same thing to romney that the bush people tried to do to kerry, take what the kerry people thought was the strongest issue and turn it into a weakness. trying to take romney's strongest issue in the private sector and turn it into a weakness, what bothers me the incredible double standard. i understand why romney doesn't want to be aassociated with the attacks jeremiah wright and this biblical piece, and buzzy nugget in it how mitt romney may have bullied some kid, 52 years ago. and yet, everyone says that
jeremiah wright not vetted not discussed by a vast swath of the news stream media, would be outrageous and disgusting to make him part of a campaign issue, i find that bizarre. >> clayton: you almost sound surprised by this. you've been around long enough to know. the swift boat attack ads and the swift boat ads and trying to dig through that. and the whole rickets ad and brought to being to the floor. why don't we see it on the other side? . well, at the end of the day, he think there are a lot of motives, some people are decent and honest and shouldn't be too broad a brush. there is a he a deep nagging insecurity in the mainstream media how they're such cheerleaders for obama in 2008 that they really don't like the idea of opening up the pandora's box and reminding people how much they were in
the tank in 2008. the stuck with obama's literary agent being a birther, and saying that obama was born in kenya. i'm not a birther, i think that obama was born in hawaii, but goes to show how the press sort of ignored that stuff and ignored jeremiah wright, ignored obama's own biography. and i think that in some ways, what they're trying to say we did nothing wrong, nothing to see here, let's put all of our attention on romney how mean he was 52 years ago in high school. >> should be interesting given that narrative how mitt romney plays it whether he shows some passion and anger. jonah goldberg from the national review, thanks for being here. >> good to be here. >> clayton: coming up 0en the show, parents, take a look at the video screen. what's happening could be the key to autism. ground breaking now, what you could do to see the first
>> 24 minutes past the hour now, we have a fox news alert. what you're watching is a historic meeting, the president, president obama about to give opening remarks at camp david on the g8 summit. >> you're welcome as long as you don't break anything. >> this is by the way, the largest gathering whatever of international leaders at camp david and i'm glad that we could have arranged for good weather. last night, we had a chance to discuss some court issues that
affect our common security and i want to say that we are unified when it comes to our an i proech with-- approach with iran. i think we all agree iran has the right to peaceful nuclear pow power, but international rules and norms and its inability thus far to convince the world community it's not pursuing the weaponization of nuclear power is something of grave concern to all of us. we are hopeful about the discussions that will be taking in baghdad, but all of us are committed to firmly continuing with the approach of sanctions and pressure in combination with diplomatic discussions and our hope is that we can resolve this issue
in a peaceful fashion that respects iran's sovereignty and its rights in the international community, but also recognizes its responsibilities. we had a discussion about syria and we all believe that a peaceful resolution and political transition in syria is preferable. we are all deeply concerned about the violence that's taken place there and the loss of life. we are supportive of the annan plan, but we agreed and expect this will be reflected in our communique that the annan plan has to be fully implemented and that a political process has to move forward in a more timely fashion to resolve that issue. we also have a chance to discuss the situation north korea. all of us agree that north korea's violating its
international obligations and that there is a path for them to rejoin the international community, but that path is not going to be -- or that objective will not be achieved if they continue with the provocative actions that they have shown over the last several months. and on a brighter note, we had the opportunity to discuss burma and all of us are hopeful that the political process and transition, transformation that is beginning to take place there takes root. many of us have i can at thatten action to open up, trade and investment with burma for the first time in many years and we've had discussions with the leadership there. our hope is that this process will continue and we're going to do everything we can to encourage that process.
finally, we had a brief discussion around the issue of women's empowerment where we've agreed that both when it comes to economic development and when it comes to peace and security issues, empowering women to have a seat at the table and go et more engaged and involved in these processes can be extraordinarily fruitful and this is something that we will also be introducing during the g-20. so, i want to thank the leaders, despite the fact that those coming from across the atlantic ended up staying up i guess until six in the morning their time, the discussions were very fruitful this morning, we're going to be spending a lot of time on economic issues. obviously, the euro zone will be one topic and all of us are absolutely committed to making sure that both growth and stability and fiscal c
consolidation are part of a package in order for prosperity that we're all looking for. we're also talking about uncertainty in the energy markets and how we can help to resolve some of those issues and we'll be spending time talking about the development, the middle east, north africa and our capacity to sustain economic development in afghanistan, obviously, in chicago during the n.a.t.o. meeting we'll spend more time talking about security, security matters, but here we want to make sure that we recognize the need for afghanistan to be able to sustain a development agenda moving forward as we begin the transition out of war. so, again, i want it thank all the leaders for being here and so far, this has been a frank and useful conversation and it gives me great optimism about our ability to meet the challenges in the future, all right?
thank you very much, everybody. >> thank you. >> that of course is president obama at the meeting of the g8 at camp david. much more casual than the typical affair when you have people of this caliber. and the president there. coming up we're going back to the mud and mud competition not just david, it's david and clayton, clayton was forced by you, by us, for the benefit of the wounded warriors, going to take on the tough mudder challenge coming up next. stay tuned.

solyndra. what's more worrisome, the obama administration is imposing the green energy plan on the military and forcing them to spend 4 billion dollars of its budget on energy research, for instance-- . than what. >> but, i'm sorry? >> and explain a little more about what they're asking the defense department to do? >> with he will, they're asking them to look into alternative energy fuel and alternative energy and so, the secretary of defense says that this is absolutely necessary because, the cost of fuel is so expensive. so there's no other choice, but to look into doing energy research, but that's not necessarily true, because, there is the keystone pipeline, which the obama administration refuses to approve, which would bring in 700,000 barrels of oil per day into the united states. so, it's not the only option that, that this administration has. >> i mean, what, what information? what valuable information have we gleaned from this research? >> well, look, we don't know. they're basically just
