tv Americas News Headquarters FOX News July 23, 2011 10:00am-11:00am PDT
larry says, why is it so hard to cut spending in a climate where there's a national mandate to cut? why can't they just do it? okay. those are just some of the thoughts people have and that will do it for me. make it a great day everybody, have a good day. >> hello, i'm kelly wright. welcome to a brand new hour inside america's news headquarters. >> jamie: hi, i'm jamie colby. and topping the news this hour, increased death toll and horrifying new accounts emerging from the bombing attack on massacre in norway. and we're now getting more details about the alleged gunman who witnesses say hunted down victims at a youth summer camp. >> kelly: shocking news. troubled singer amy winehouse found dead. more on this news coming up. >> jamie: epic heatwave, roughly half of all americans
right now are under a heat advisory. details on those hardest hit and what we can expect later in the week. >> we begin with this fox news alert from washington. president obama holding an emergency meeting at the white house today one day after house speaker john boehner pulled out of the debt limit talks and now president and congressional leaders are racing to strike a deal as the default deadline looms. our wendell goler from the white house has more details. wendell. >> reporter: today's meeting ended without an agreement to hike the debt ceiling and lawmakers left the white house without commenting to reporters and no indication the president would make an appearance in the briefing room. he had told congressional leaders to come here with a plan to extend the debt ceiling through the end of next year. house speaker john boehner said he was coming with his standard demand, that the deficit be cut more than the debt ceiling is raised. now, the meetings here at the white house lasted a little
less than an hour so there wasn't much time for negotiations. and house democratic leader nancy pelosi says if they get something done by august 1st, have to in here words engineer backwards and make every minute count at congressional leaders say the staffs will work through the weekend. and unclear if there will be a meeting here tomorrow. there's concern here and capitol hill what the markets might do if there's no deal. markets had closed when speaker boehner walked out of the talks last night. the president did ask for tax ref few before boehner grew up. support for more tax revenue in the senate, but house was sticking to tea party demands and put the burden on ordinary americans and added they're mad at both parties over it. speaker boehner was just as frustrated, said negotiating with the white house was like negotiating with a bowl of jello. he had been pushing for a trigger that would force
democrats to deliver on spending cuts they negotiated and wanted the trigger to be the repeal of the most controversial element of the president's health care law. the requirement that everyone buy assurance that can afford it. that's the red line that the president would not cross. and the president and the republicans blamed each other for the impasse in the weekend internet addresses, kelly, jamie. >> thank you very much for the report. the heat is on in washington, literally, with the members of congress and president. jamie. >> thank you as well. the debt talks have been going on for months. yesterday's collapse may have swept any and all progress away. is it possible for washington to now pick up the pieces and avoid default. joining us now a strategist, alexis, gill johnson. and tony, thank you for being here. >> hey, jamie. >> jamie: alexis, you first, how do we get things on track? >> i've been thinking of something that ronald reagan
said a while ago, i mean, obviously, years ago. which was that, he would rather get 80% of what he wanted than to go off the cliff flying his flag and this is a man who raised the debt ceiling 17 times, who raised taxes eight times. and i think about that in the context of what, what speaker boehner and eric cantor of doing to this country and wondering, you know, i have a similar question, what are they going to do to help get this country back on track? i think it's the right question to be asking. >> jamie: tony, i've heard you comment on this before. democrats quoting ronald reagan. were times different then? what-- >> well, ronald reagan, jamie, cut top marginal tax rates and the largest peace team growth of our economy up until that point. under clinton the economy grew as well and reagan presided over a fast growing economy. 1.3% of economic growth? that's really miserable and at
this point what the president has to do is offer a real plan. what we've seen is two republican plans and we've talked about cut, cap and balance, jamie, passed the house last week and failed in the senate on a procedural vote and passed the ryan plan. remember the budget back in april that was rather controversial. so, i think the republicans have done their tear share to put forward their ideas and the president has yet to once submit his own plan and frankly rejected one of the better plans from his own debt commission that he appointed which was bipartisan. >> alexis, i want you to respond to something i heard the president say that struck me and many americans wonder what he meant and maybe each of you can respond. let's listen. the only bottom line i have is that we have to extend this debt ceiling through the next election. into 2013. and the reason for it is we've now seen how difficult it is to get any kind of deal done.
the economy has already weakened. >> so even if there's a shorter term deal, alexis, the president wants it done in time for his reelection. that's what it sounds like, does he mean something else? >> i think what he was saying, he needed to extend it until 2013, so we can use it next year to have this conversation, but that, the politics, that clearly have hampered the process, would not get involved in the larger conversation we need to have about whether or not we're going to, to raise the deficit and cut taxes on the backs of samaritans for ask wealthy americans to do their fair share. >> jamie: tony, was that a political or nonpolitical statement he was making? >> i think it's a political statement, but the american people are really engaged with the debt debate for really the first team in a long time have we seen people from every walk of life understand what it means to be in debt. and they're realizing that
their federal government can't sustain itself the way we've grown and spent and you can't tax your way out of debt. you've cut the spending, i want to go and address something, i think, alexis alluded to and policy has trumd policy in this conversation and that's the only reason you hear the call to release taxes on the rich and that's going to have the meaningless impact on erasing the debt. the way you change the tax structure in our country is reform the tax code, that's a separate conversation and one that republicans are willing to have. >> last comment if you don't mind. where do you think we'll be at the end of this weekend? is this more theater or is there actually deal making that may happen? >> i think more theater, but i think there is real concern about what the markets are going to do and how they're going to react and hopefully, they will come back with a short-term extension. i see the mcconnell reid plan the best one on the table. a thorment short-term
extension. >> my thanks to alexis and tony. >> thanks, jamie. >> kelly: major developments of the terror attacks in norway. the death toll claim climbing to 98 as we get reports that police are searching for a second suspect. a car bomb ripped through the heart of norway's capital city, the capital building and a horrific 90 minute shooting at a youth camp. >> a guy looked like a police officer, he had the clothes and yeah, the gun and everything. but like the police, normally they don't use guns. it was-- terrifying, we were like gathered in the beginning and he came and started to shoot and we all thought it was a joke. >> he said come and be together. so they ran out and then he just shoot them. so-- >> did you see that?
>> yeah. he was open, he just was like shooting everyone. >> kelly: such a terrifying ordeal for those who gathered at a summer youth camp. what's the atmosphere like there? >> well, kelly, it's just incredible. obviously the country is in shock. nothing like this ever seems to happen here, it is the worst thing in terms of casualties since world war ii, definitely, with the death toll now getting up close to 100. anybody with a friend or a relative is in absolutely grief. now, the real scene of the carnage outside of oslo. there were reports there could have been a second shooter. that's not clear. the main suspect, the man dressed as a police officer ap precisely because of that, was able to to go through that summer camp and knock off so many people. the bomb downtown went off after the very heart of the government, this is really the center of downtown and the government buildings, police
have confirmed it was in fact a car bomb and a very big one. that was the suspicion from the start. definitely. the amount of damage you see in those buildings and the amount of glass that came out. it's amazing not more people were injured on account of that. now, the suspect taken into custody, he is a nor region and reportedly great some 6 tons of fertilizer to be used in the bombs. we don't know if all of it was used, but a couple tons would be significant for a powerful explosion and they certainly did have that here and finally, kelly. i can tell you, i've been here once before. it is a very quiet place, always considered a very safe place and you get the idea that changed as someone told me yesterday, they said, you know, nothing ever happens in norway. well, that all changed. kelly. >> kelly: all right. we thank you for that report. we'll be discussing this later in our program. greg burke reporting from oslo, norway. >> jamie: to tell you a little bit more about norway. the population there is under
5 million people. close to colorado. more than half a million in the capital of oslo. roughly the same area as new mexico, it's a constitutional monarchy with seven main political parties and the prime minister is part of the labor party. could the attacks in norway have been the work of one man? if so, what could that influence and how could it influence the global trechl fight going forward? former counterterrorism advisor to the fbi, jovi browdy will join us straight ahead. >> kelly: fox extreme weather alert. no doubt about it. you've been outside and now that the national weather service warning of oppressive heat today. another summer scorcher or sizzler for americans, hot and sticky weather, stretching from the midwest to the east coast, there are brutal temperatures smashing records, reaching 100 degrees and higher in some spots and julie
banderas is live in new york city, baring it all under the pressure of the heat. >> 94 degrees and certainly improvement from yesterday, but right now, millions of people really being tormented by the excessive and oppressive heat across the country in the midwest and much of the northeast today. 94 as i said. an improvement, but yet, very, very hot for many people, causing deaths and power outages in the last few days and heat clearly not taking the weekend off. if you take a look now at other parts of the country, they are certainly bearing the worst conditions and the national weather service, with temps in the 90's, much of the west and northeast today. including oklahoma, indiana, new york, new jersey and connecticut. on friday, take a look at the temperatures. the mercury in newark, new jersey reached 108. that's the highest temperature ever recorded there. while in new york city, it reached 104.
philadelphia and boston both hit 103 and portland, maine 101 degrees and the heatwave is being blamed for more than a dozen deaths around the country and a 18-year-old landscaper who died thursday night in louisville, kentucky, had a temperature of 110. on friday the medical examiner's office in chicago listed heat stress or heat stroke as the cause of death for seven people here is one doctor warning of the dangers. >> it takes several hours to restore ones self after a day in the heat. drinking water, being in a cool environment. that is air conditioned for three hours a day, is very protective in terms of heat stroke or dying in your apartment. >> heat advisories also air quality warnings, because of the heat, obviously, the power plants have to work harder and the more the power plants work, then the, obvious air pollution goes into effect and that of course is still the case in the northeast and the midwest and temperatures supposed to be going a little
back to normal. by the normals, i mean 80's. it's summer after all. once we reach the 80's it will feel like fall considering the 104 degree temps that we experienced here in new york city yesterday. kelly. >> kelly: and 94 right now is not too bad, but bad enough for a lot of people throughout the country. julie banderas, thanks so much. stay cool. >> sure. >> jamie: as julie was telling us, temperatures soaring above the century mark. and some feels 110 to-120 degrees. is there any relief in sight from the dangerous temperatures? meteorologist maria molina in the fox extreme weather center, earning its name today. >> very extreme, jamie. depends where you are, as far as the relief in store for you, the upper portions of the midwest, northeast and mid atlantic and see some improvement as we head into tomorrow and also monday to kick off the work week and thanks will start to return back to normal, but areas like in the southern plains, state of texas, it's going to stay hot out there for days to
come. take a look at today's high temperatures. 100 in kansas city and we're looking at triple digit temperatures today. also, 97 will be the high, new york city, 99 in raleigh, north carolina, and 99 in dallas, texas because of the hot temperatures and also a lot of humidity in place with some heat in the valleys that could reach 120 degrees out there. there are a number of excessive heat warnings and areas shaded in red and you can see many years south of the great lakes, the plains and eastern seaboard and these warnings will remain in effect throughout the day today. take a look at some of the heat index values from friday, from yesterday. 124 degrees in wilmington, delaware, that's what it felt like when you headed outdoors in the afternoon hours and once we start seeing these temperatures that's when it starts to reach the dangerous levels. stay safe out there. and hydrated and indoors and triple digit heat in the valleys 103 in kansas city. 100 in dallas and that relief in store is a cold front
moving through today. and jamie across parts of the upper midwest and northeast, unfortunately it will not be moving through parts of the southern plains. >> maria, you will have a busy day today. thanks so much. >> kelly: there's breaking news from the music world, grammy award winning singer amy winehouse found dead in her home. >> jamie: congress with a-- a congressman is facing questions from a long time friend. >> kelly: disappearance of jackie waller, a mother of triplets in the middle of a doors, her husband says the police are unfairly targeting him. and joins us live in minutes. what do we have? all four of us, together? 24. he's low fat, too, and has 5 grams of sugars. i'll believe it when i--- [ both ] oooooh... what's shakin'?

>> fox news alert out of london. police are confirming grammy winning singer amy winehouse is dead. and officers say they found her body at home after someone there called for an ambulance. amy winehouse has known for hits like "rehab", but also her battle with drugs and alcohol and canceled a concert after she appeared drunk and forgot lyrics, 27 years old and much loved. >> kelly: with the clock ticking on a possible debt default and washington far apart on a deal, wall street now is about to close the books on its worst three months in a year. so if president obama and congressional leaders can't get it together, will we see even more market volatility and more importantly, what will all of this mean for your bottom line? joining me now, port manager for capitalist pig.com and a
regular on fox's cashin' in, jonathan hoenig. good to see you and you're here in the studios today. >> happy to be here, thank you. >> kelly: jonathan, the question, how would this prolong partisan budget brawl over solving the country's debt crisis affect the markets next week? what are your concerns about that? >> well, kelly it's already having an effect. markets aren't just dealing with the market realities, two years after the end of the recession are still keeping investors on the sidelines, but obviously, the situation in washington taking center stage for many investors, and they're beginning to weigh actual possibility of an american default. and it's got many, many traders nervous, not even so much the stock investors, but kelly, the bond investors, those who hold the debt that the government is trying to refinance, trying to sell. they've seen what happens in greece, they've seen the net results of big spending entitlement programs that aren't addressed and many in wall street are concerned it
might happen here. >> the president said yesterday he was concerned about wall street and interesting enough that the speaker of the house and the president came out with these statements about the breakdown and the impasse after the markets closed on friday. does that mean that they, as politicians, also have some bottom line concerns about how their statements and their actions in terms of the politics of this, would affect wall street? >> oh, i hope they're well aware, kelly, because certainly wall street has been keeping a close eye on washington. not just the last number of weeks, but for quite some time and why many in wall street, actually say, moving past moody's, s & p the opinion of the rating agencies and focusing on not so much the debt ceiling, but the debt itself and got many questioning, kelly, whether u.s. debt continues to be a good investment even if the compromise on the debt ceiling and potential default can be reached. i mean, many are saying, essentially, i want to be out of the u.s.
i want to buy gold, i want to buy foreign currency and foreign stocks that are going to hold up better in the event this impasse can't be resolved. >> kelly: jonathan, if the congressional acrimony continues, if we don't get a bottom line agreement or compromise on this, what does it mean for your 401(k) and what president obama calls the working stiff, the average american who continues to work every day and even for those unemployed? >> unfortunately, i think in my opinion, kelly it does them a great disservice, as the president talks about the corporate jet owners somehow harming wall street. keep in mind, excuse me, somehow hurting the average joe, those are very much the individuals who do the hiring, who do the expanding, who grow the economy. in my estimation by putting them in target, if you will, of washington, causes more uncertainty to create jobs and productivity in my estimation, the rich, poor, the washington, joe six-pack everyone wants the same thing. unfortunately many of those
who have that power, that control, aren't willing to take the risk in the environment that we have now, coming out of washington. >> kelly: bottom line, time to get something done. jonathan hoenig, thank you for bringing your fair assessment what's going on in washington, and how it's affecting the world. >> jamie: as police make arrest in the brutal beating of a man, his family has details of his condition. and death toll rising in norway, could this have been the work of one individual? we'll talk to a fbi advisor and terrorism expert next. in small continuous amounts. only one calcium supplement does that in one daily dose. new citracal slow release... continuously releases calcium plus d for the efficient absorption my body needs. citracal.
admitting to some of the crimes he's accused of. in the meantime, police are investigating reports that a second gunman was involved in the rampage. at least 98 people were killed in the attacks. is it possible one person could have pulled all this off alone? and how did this change the landscape of terror across the world? joining us now is joseph browly, a former counterterrorism for the fbi and "the honored dead", you're getting to the heart of this. this is carnage upon a peaceful, tranquil country, no one was expecting oslo, or norway to be the center of attack. could this have been home grown terrorism or the act of one man. >> what it's looking like is home grown terrorism and it's europe's timothy mcveigh moment. yesterday perhaps a rush to judgment and people looking
back on islamist group attacking european targets and thinking it would be another one. it looks likes it's the work of a right wing extremist motivated by anti-immigrant rhetoric so it's a different type of terrorism new to europe. >> kelly: so, joseph, how does this change the landscape of terror across the world? >> well, in first, it begins to affect the way security services in europe look at terrorism. they've been focused on islamist radical groups and continued to be concerned with them, but they're also going to be paying more attention to skinheads, fascist groups and the right. and i think it will also affect the rhetoric, rhetoric of some of the right wing parties in europe who have bordered on racist language in talking about the immigrant populations. >> yeah, keep in mind, this suspect, at least known on his facebook page, quote, unquote, christian fundamentalist, but that, that he perhaps was part
of some sort of group as you said, skin head or neo-nazi. what information are you gathering, could he have worked alone or had an accomplice. >> when you have two major attacks, a bombing and shooting spree happening in one day you'll look for signs of coordination with a group. as far as what he wrote on facebook and in other context, the ideological indication would certainly be that he is a right wing extremist, he used the word christian, but of course, it's a per version of christianity, the say with a that islamist terrorism is a distortion of islamic traditional values. >> kelly: i want to ask you. we noticed as i was coming to you, he had admitting to some of the crimes he's accused of and we now know that police are investigating the involvement of a second gunman in the rampage. it seems like one man pulling this off.
the explosion that took place in oslo, the attack, subsequent attack of people at a summer camp and shooting so many people there. could one man have actually done this and if not, does this mean that perhaps, that oslo and norway and other countries need to be more aware of their extremists in their country? >> well, the appearance again of the likelihood would be that there's coordination, and you have six tons of ammonium nitrate fertilizer being used in that bombing and apparently he had acquired it because he had a farm in eastern norway and a plausible way of getting all of that fertilizer and nobody was suspicious. this is, after all, peaceful norway. people will look at that closely. that's been used in bombing by the ira, baath separatists and in bombings in north africa. evidence points to coordination and there's a new concern about the availability
of these types of chemicals. >> kelly: and goes back to what you were saying earlier, they've experienced their worst tragedy in norway since world war ii and certainly is their oklahoma bombing disaster that has taken place there. we thank you for shedding light on this important story that we're following. >> thank you. >> kelly: obviously our prayers go out to the victims in norway. joseph browning, thank you, sir e major developments to tell you about in the case of a brutal beating that took place outside dodgers stadium back in march. police arresting two new suspects in connection with the near fatal attack. it was on a san francisco giants fan, his name is brian stowe. stowe's injuries were so extensive, doctors had to place him in a medically induced coma. casey stegall live from los angeles. what led police to find the new suspects? >> reporter: investigators are not saying and not telling us
what specific evidence they have to links these two men to this brutal attack. they are also not releasing their mug shots. all they will say are their names, 29-year-old luis sanchez and 30-year-old marvin norwood and they will both be arraigned in los angeles on monday. both are accused of carrying out that violent attack outside of dodgers stadium, in the parking lot on opening day. the victim was targeted, police have said all along, simply for being a giants fan. now, with news of these latest arrests, also comes word of a pretty big public relations mess for l.a.p.d. the department saying this man, giovanni ramirez, let's show you his mug shot now, the one who investigators arrested and touted as the primary suspects since may, turns out, is innocent. i want to tell the world that giovanni ramirez is no longer
a suspect in this case. the initial evidence and identifications, which led to his arrest, have been refuted by an investigation that has involved dozens of detectives. >> now, ramirez has been exonerated, but remains behind bars on a separate parole violation. it's been interesting to watch l.a.p.d. kind of back off of this, jamie, with the arrest and word of the latest release and arrest come just this week. >> casey, it's an interesting development and many people want to know how brian stowe is doing now. any developments there? >> yeah, of course, he remains in a san francisco hospital and just underwent surgery, earlier this week, to remove some fluid on the brain. however, some of his family members say he continues to make improvements. the father of two, reportedly had his eyes open and attempted to hold up thumb or two fingers and one of the care givers says he mouths
"stowe" when asked what his last name was. they say he was kicked ap punched in the head during the attack and doctors say he most likely suffered permanent brain damage as a result. >> jamie: so sad. thank you, casey. >> kelly: brand new controversy for oregon congressman david lou. the democrat is being accused of an unwanted sexual encounter with a teenage daughter of a close friend and donor. last year his questionable behavior plagued hem during his reelection. especially when costumed pictures of him, you're looking at it there, surfaced. peter doocy joins us live with more on david wu, peter. >> reporter: as you kind of just said, democratic congressman wu continues to attract attention to him. this time, a voice mail left on a young woman's phone.
an unwanted encounter with the seven term congressman. we've got a short statement from wu, this is serious and no desire to bring unwanted publicly and stress to a young woman and her family. the newspaper doesn't say how old she is, but graduated in 2010 and registered to vote last august. apparently the daughter of a long time friend and daughter to the congressman and police weren't involved right away when the incident took place in november. she felt it would be her word against his word and she didn't have a lot of evidence she did not involve the police. speaking of evidence. a lot of people thought this photo was proof he was mentally unstable. it was taken last october. sent the tiger read to pounce to some of his staff. and the recent campaign
focused mostly on advertising and not events with constituents or interviews and pushed him to go to a mental hospital. wu refused to go and chopped the weird stuff up to exhaustion, but half a dozen staffers quit by the time he gave the explanation and he'll have to explain these latest charges, not the first time he's been involved in something like this. 197 while a student at stanford he got in trouble with the school for trying to make one of his exgirlfriends have sex with him. >> kelly: peter doocy. >> jamie: on another topic, ford is introducing a more environmentally friendly engine for its pickup. gary gastelu takes the ford f-150 for a spin in this week's car report. >> we hear a lot about the car of the future these days, what about trucks? this ford f-150 may look like the half a million others that are sold each year, but under the hood is a high-tech twin
turbocharged echo boost engine and mark the light truck in the system since people used these as charges. >> it's power steering and six speed automatic transmission, whatever happened to three on the tree? you're probably asking your is he have. why would someone do these things to a perfectly good american pickup truck? well, in three words, better fuel economy. this engine gets one mile per gallon more than the five liter. and it may not sound like a lot, but more power. 365 horsepower to be exact and more importantly, 420, and means it can tow a lot more. of course you'll pay more for it, but just $750 and explain why it's the best selling engine in the lineup.
a twin turbo v-6. with that in mind. why would anybody bother with the v-8. that runs on e-85, which may not be important to you unless you live in the corn belt and also for all the power it puts out the eco boost doesn't sound like, it's quiet, muffled, actually pretty nice, but it's not going to impress anybody, as some of the finer establishments, you might stop by after work. that said, i can't think of one place where it might make an impression, do i have to say it again? twin turbos. the 2011 ford f-150 echo boost. gary gastelu, fox news. >> jamie: if you want to learn more about the 2011 ford f-150 echo boost, go to fox car report.com. >> kelly: the temperatures suffocating much of the country are taking a deadly toll. coming up how to keep your temperature down as the thermometer rises. and the husband of a missing
we're putting them to the test against the speed of a rescue unit. go ! they're downloading a music album. the first network to finish gets rescued. does your phone know that we're racing ? done ! verizon's done ! i've got seven left ! the fastest networin america. verizon. built so you can rule the air. now powering the lg revolution. the two trains and a bus rider. the "i'll sleep when it's done" academic. for 80 years, we've been inspired by you.
>> welcome back everybody. there are now questions arising now in the mystery of a missing mother from missouri. 39-year-old jackie waller is a mother of triplets. last seen at her husband's home on june 1st. the couple was in the midst of divorce. her husband, james clay waller is claiming he had absolutely nothing to do with his wife's disappearance and complaining now that police are focusing too much on him rather than other possible suspects. if you know anything, we want you to help. all you have to do is listen to her parents, jackie's
parents are here with us now, stan and ruby rossen. thanks to both of you for sharing your story today. we want to talk about it and do all that we can. >> thank you, jamie. >> jamie: stan, at this point have you lost hope that your daughter is alive? >> i'll never lose hope that she's alive. i know she's not alive. no doubt in my mind. i haven't lost hope of getting her back. >> jamie: why are you so convinced that your daughter's life was taken? >> she wouldn't stay away. she wouldn't just walk away. she has three beautiful children, that was her whole life. with the threats that she's been listening to for a year now, that i can kill you and i can get away with it, she -- we know that he did what he said he was going to do. he told her if she filed for divorce, it would be like signing her death warrant. so-- >> he said she had 30 days to live and that was about 30
days before she came up missing. >> jamie: stan, the day she went missing she had visited her attorneys, or was on her way to see them as part of this divorce, that she was having. have you had any contact with clay since then or maybe you could tell our viewers what he's been up to in terms of his behavior since then? >> no, i haven't had any real contact with him other than seeing him in child court one time. i didn't speak to him at all. he seems to spend his time driving around, doing silly things, like making fun of the searchers and flipping them off and doing things like that. i don't understand him and i think he's went around the bend. >> jamie: ruby, did he exhibit bizarre or violent behavior in the years he was married to your daughter? >> no, not that we were aware
of. that's the reason i was so shocked when she started telling me about six months ago about the threats he had made to her. i said jackie, i can't believe this is the same man that's been in our family for 17 years. she says, mom, he's a different person. she says, you don't know what he can do. >> and it was a long-term marriage with three beautiful children. how are the children doing? because i know that there was some court action where you got a protective order to protect them from their father. i don't believe he's had visitation since she disappeared. what is it that the judge saw in this case that led to the issuance of that protective order? >> well, naturally, i really can't read the judge's mind, but i can only surmise from what the squad said that they're worried about a hostage situation, mainly, and who knows what he's liable to
do. this guy is something else. the more we find out about him the more unstable he seems to be. >> he made threats to her, he made threats to her and she recorded them on her computer in a file when they recovered her computer from her car, there was threats in there that he would also kill the children and i think that's probably what prompted them to place the protective order. >> jamie: ruby, if clay sees this interview and you've been outspoken do the right thing and tell the police of anything that might happen. what's your message on behalf of the children and how important is it to them to get their mother back if she's alive or at least for you to be able to explain to them in an appropriate way, what might have happened? >> well, he just needs to know that these children are curting so bad. they've lost their mother. they haven't seen their father, they're just, they don't know what to think. aen we try to keep them
distracted. and all i could say is please, do the right thing. let us, you know, he was in our family for 17 years, he was a part of our family, and i still have some feelings for clay, some are not good and some are good. i remember the good times. >> jamie: i understand. >> and i can't believe that he would destroy our family this way. >> jamie: stan and ruby rossen. we have been praying for your family and those children, too. i appreciate it here. i want to put up the information, if anyone out there has any details, even if you think it's insignificant, anything may help bring this family the answers that they're looking for. thank you so much to all of you, good luck. >> thank you, jamie, we need your prayers. >> jamie: you have them, sir, take care. >> thank you. >> kelly: i will second that on the prayers as well. meantime, half of americans under an extreme heat advisory and it's more than just the miserable feeling. it's actually proven to be very dangerous out there and
flooding emergency rooms and even causing deaths. and the doctor up next with what you didn't know about trying to stay cool. but it's our job to make them say sothing interesting. so how about this weekend we learn some new tricks of the trade... then break out our doing clothes and get rolling. let's use some paint that helps us get the job done in record time and makes a statement when we're finished. we're lowering the cost of a new favorite color. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. glidden premium paint has been rated a best buy, and you can only get it at the home depot.
miserable conditions. >> kelly: the heatwave claeming more than 20 lives so far. the emergency rooms across the country are seeing a flood of heat related cases and what do you need to know to stay safe despite the temperatures. let's bring in dr. kumar, assistant professor of surgery at mount sinai. the heat is dangerous out there, just a report today, how a 18-year-old died while biking in chicago. 18 years of age. what happened there. >> everybody is susceptible to the heat and heat exhaustion and then of course, which leads to heat stroke and ultimately leads to death. people have to be very, very careful. children are susceptible, but elderly and medical conditions are very, very susceptible. so we have to be, very, very careful. one of the things you need to watch for or the signs of heat exhaustion, that will lead to heat stroke. sweating profusely, dizzy
nauseated and your body temperature at that point is starting to rise. and when your body temperature gets to about 103 or 104, that's when you're going to stop sweating and that's dangerous when you get so hot you stop sweating when your organs can begin to fail and lead to death. >> we hear about drinking water before you feel you need it, before you're overheated or really thirsty. what are some of the trips we wouldn't think of, things we can do to try to prevent that from happening? >> some of the things you need to watch for or foods that cause you to release water and drinks that cause you to release water, caffeine, coffee, sodas, caffeine is a diuretic. in addition, if you eat a high protein diet you have to hydrate a lot. that acts like a diuretic and causes you to release water. stick to eating light foods definitely drink a lot of waters. if you're sweating, a cool area and replace that sweat with electrolytes.
gatorade or the peeda lites. >> if you're outside and playing or working or drinking water and shouldn't you poor that water on yourself. >> you can cool yourself off like that, but be careful when you do things like that. although you're cooling yourself. it's going to be very, very temporary and then it can sort of mask some of the other side effects or signs you may be having leading to heat exhaustion. the key is in days like this, whether the temperatures are 100, 105. you need to number one, stay inside as much as you can. you definitely should not be doing activity outside, exercise in the hottest time of the day and afternoon and people of course have to work in the heat need to be especially careful and you have to sty hydrated and you can know the drink enough water during this time. >> jamie: can i tell you, doctor, how you describe the signs. you're suffering from heat, but when it crosses the line into something much more dangerous, short of taking
your temperature. >> right. >> what would you be feeling or experiencing or can we tell if someone we love is having a problem with the heat, that it's now become so dangerous, we have to go to the emergency room? >> when you get to the point of heat stroke, you may start to faint and people need to watch you and pull you inside, ice packs underneath your arms and cool down your body temperature and may start to become confused aen certainly a lot of palpitations and not sweating a sure sign you've gone into heat stroke and you may not recognize it it, if you see somebody like that get them to a cool environment, ice packs are good. a cool washcloth on the back of the neck. that can be good and calling 911 immediately e interesting, under the arms and back of the neck. thank you, dr. coo m. er. >> kelly: hopefully people can take that and run with it, not outside. >> right, not outside.
>> kelly: that will do it for us. i'm kelly wright. >> jamie: i'm jamie colby, stay cool and here on the fox news channel. journal editorial report is up next. have a great day. >> kelly: we'll see you. also get a free flight. you know that comes with a private island. really? no. it comes with a hat. you see, airline credit cards promise flights for 25,00miles, but...
