trump has had a backlash for his campaign but yesterday he promised to stop swearing. if it's at bit off, they kill me. so i won't do it. i'll never do it again, actually. >> never do it again, actually. lasted less than ten minutes when he did it again. >> romney lost. i said, damnity, the next time i'm just going to do it myself right? 'd cal islamic terrorism. we got a problem. >> we've got to problem and we damn well petitioner figure out what the problem is. they take these ads and they say anything. they say anything. just hospital you don't believe the crap because it's all crap. >> two damns and two craps, the 'latest ad from club for growth. >> there's nothing consecutive about four bankruptcies. nothing conservative about giving money to the clintons. there's nothing conservative about donald trump. >> in a world. ted cruz has pulled his latest ad. hear about that?
turns out one of the actresses who portrayed hillary clinton was once a porn star. >> maybe just vote for more than just a pretty face next time. >> cruz staffers say that woman, amy lindsey, showed up to open casting call and claim they did not know she had standard in movies including erotic confessions, carnal wishes and insatiable desire. and jeb bush's such pac has spent close do $12 million on political ads in south carolina alone. as much as all the other g.o.p. candidates combined. is it paying off this time? campaign staffers say they've had to movie vents to larger venues because more people are turning out. how big with were the previous ? smaller. jeb bush appearing at a faith and family leadership forum in south carolina. fox coverage. mike emanuel is in milwaukee, and first john roberts at the forum in greenville, south
carolina. hello, john. >> reporter: good afternoon. four republican candidates going after the all-important evangelical vote here at bob jones university. evangelicals make up 60% of voters here in south carolina. that's why jeb bush, who was on the stage a short time ago, took the opportunity, speaking to all of the christian conservatives, to call out donald trump for the language that he has been using on the stump, saying, just doesn't seem very presidential. here's bush. >> is anybody here worried about the front-running candidate shotting out obscenities in front of children? i can't imagine my dad -- just -- it's just like -- not going to do it. or my brother, who always wore a suit into the oval office because he walked in there, he thought, this is hallowed ground. >> marco rubio making a point of bush's language, saying after he what he said on the stump the
other day. a word used to describe a small cat he can explained what trump was getting out. >> wow, jeb bush stepped up his attacks on the other candidates. >> he has. hevççç is trike to frick kacy mo rubio and taking on john kashich, calling kashich for medicaid in the state of iowa and for when he was in congress, proposing cuts to the the pentagon. case sick, who said he will hit back if he is hit, did just that yesterday. >> you said you're not going to be a pin cushion but he is whacking you and -- >> oh, that's what -- look, how has he been doing whacking everybody? he spent more money than anybody -- i think everybody combined and is not even close to winning. so, i'm not going to get hung up on that. not going down the rabbit hole. >> the back and forth leading up to the big debate tomorrow night
in greenville, south carolina. people hoping for the newt gingrich moment, two days 0 before the primary his poll numbers were going down, in the space of two minutes, answering one question, re rocketed into first place and won the primary here. >> democrats now fresh off last night's debate, hillary clinton is apparently trying to -- tying herself to president obama when it comes to lots of;bgée"7hings, including gun laws. >> hillary
is committed to making sure that the guns don't get into the wrong hands. and standing with the president to get stronger gun laws. so, no family ever has to go through anything like this again. >> the ad is set to begin airing in south carolina this weekend. it features the reverend anthony thompson. his wife died in the charleston church massacre last year. last night hillary clinton criticized sanders saying that
afternoon. after competing in mostly anglo states in new hampshire and iowa, we're now seeing the democratic candidates heading for the south, to more diverse states where it will be much more diverse communities they need to reach out to. >> so secretary clinton talks about making history as the first woman president, if it all works out her way. how did sanders respond to that last night? >> a fascinating moment when you had bernie sanders saying, as a jewish democratic socialist from vermont, that essentially if he were elected, he would make history, too. >> from an historical point of view, somebody with my background, somebody with my c(ñr has spt his entire life taking on the
map -- the primary map favors her a good deal more than him because a lot more minorities 55% in 2008, 55% of democratic voters were african-american. obviously the clintons' close ties to the african-american community. sanders has to prove he can break through with that group, but he is impressive, and smart. crafty, his aides call him on the stump, and in the debate stage it will be a thing to see what he has to say on sunday. >> he sat next to al sharpton, so everything must change now. >> well, she's also sitting next to al sharpton, says something about the country, that if you're going to appeal to the african-american community, you have to good kiss the ring of -- go kiss the ring of the godfather, al sharpton, curious development. >> i don't think it says a dang thing about the country and says everything about the out of touch people who are running polling ticks. anybody who thinks the way you
need to appeal to african-american millenials or anybody else, you have to -- the way to get there is by the chair next to al sharpton, that's just dumb, dumb, that's stupid. i know that barack obama sat there eight years ago, same chair, same restaurant and all that. it's supposed to appeal, but i don't know. seems stupid, doesn't it? >> well, i mean -- >> i'm asking you. >> we report, they decide. >> but you get -- i asked you a question. if we can deal with pleasant tries here, what do you think? is that a helpful thing? >> i think we'll have an interesting interview. also marco rubio really stepped in it in the last debate and is going to have a debate tomorrow% night, and then we'll talk to him on sunday morning and see whether he has been able to right the ship. before themzç debate a 0 lot of people thought he would fin asia strong second and might even beat trump in new hampshire, and all of that went into sharp
reverse after he sort of kept parroting those lines over and over again four times. he has to do better in this debate. he knows he has to do better and the fact he is coming out, already booked to talk to us on sunday, indicates he thinks he will have something to say on sunday morning. >> he changed the way he rolls because he is out there giving longer news conferences, talking to people for longer time, seems more like the guy that we might sigh when we're hanging out in the row done to and walks -- rotunda, and similar to hillary clinton how she is in normal life, everybody who has known her said chev is engaging and shoulders back and interesting and compelling, and yet they stand up there so robotic, all of them, and robots trailing around marco rubio now. you wonder if that wouldn't be an easy thing if you're a human being of substance. >> yeah. you mean to -- i will tell you, though -- i think it's hard when you have to give the same speech overu>
if you have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis like me, and you're talking to your rheumatologist about a biologic... this is humira. this is humira helping to relieve my pain and protect my joints from further damage. this is humira giving me new perspective. doctors have been prescribing humira for ten years.

four people were hurt but expected to be okay. cops shot and killed the actor when he came at them with the machete and a knife. what else could we know, matt? >> reporter: police are identifying the suspect as8ñw3 >> a man came in and started beating up on the man, and i5rys thought it was personal thing, and then he just started down something. i don't know. it was -- people were bleeding.
>> reporter: after the attack, berry tack -- took off in his car. the police unsuccess any used a stun on him, and that's when police say the lunged over the car with a ha machete and knife and they shot and killed him. they're trying to determine if he had friends in the area or held a job. >> why the cops say they don't think this is random? >> they say it immediately raised red flags he walked into the restaurant by started attacking people he did not know. the owner of the nazareth cafe said that berry came into the restaurant before hand, asked the owner what his origin was and what type of food he served, left and came back a short while later to donxdi,mtñ the attack. the restaurant owner feels he was targeted because of his israeli descent. >> do i feel it? yes, i hope it's not the case, and if it is, i hope it's a one-time thing. >> reporter: the police say this man does not have a criminal
past. >> okay, matt, thanks. is lil' kim going too far? executed some of his top military leaders but executing your enemies tends to create more enemies. a fascinating look inside north korea and while lil' kim may need to watch his back. >> after so many days of the dow is up. why is the dow up today? well, besides the fact it's not down, something crazy has happened with oil. details on that after this. at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like bill splitting equals nitpicking. but i only had a salad. it was a buffalo chicken salad. salad.
looking at things. checking out machines, looking at classrooms, farms. want to start looking behind him if he keeps executing his military officers. anallies say sooner or later the officers may get tired of wondering whether that are the next to go and do something to prevent it. yesterday we reported the dictator executed his chief military guy in charge of things for including corruption, and that general's corpse is the latest in a long line of bodies punctuating lil' kim's regime. in fact our next guest wrote an article that reads in part: many korea watchers consider the killings and others to be proof that kim jong-un is in command rid of anyone. in reality it's proof the situation at the top of the regime is fluid. after all if kim were truly in control there would be no need for continual blood-letting. it's not like ilkim has a ton of
friends. today u.s. hawse how likers approved a bill that would slap penalties for failing to stop it nuclear weapons program. the bill now heading to president obama. previous measures have worked brilliantly. gordon chang is a foreign affairs journalist and author of "nuclear showdown, north korea takes over the world." supposedly killed 80 people so far? >> core korea's national security has scaled 49 -- 94 officials. plus with those sent to the camp that's closefs70n' to 400 or 50o we're talking bat big death toll. >> he does this so show everybody i'm the big dog. >> he came into power in december 2011 unexpectedly. his father, kim jong-il, didn't have time to prepare the ground, and kim jong-un didn't have the
ability to put his people in place before he took over. so he is trying to exert control but this is out of control because this killing has a dynamic all of its own. you create enemies and those enemies then have to be killed, and so, therefore, we see a lot of blood on the floor right now. >> of course, you feed them well, if you feed them well, in a place where food is the big thing, then usually they're okay. >> yes, but one thing that kim jong-un has done with the military, he's taken away their export privileges which means he has taken away money and given it to the korean workers party, competitor to the mayory -- army and that's a problem. it's a question of prestige and also a question of welfare. that's why he is push thing military at a point where it very well may be one step too far. >> they have nukes. who is taking care of that and should we be concern about that
part of all this? >> well, the guys who are getting demoted, the generals and the admirals, are the ones in control of chemical and biological weapons and the nukes and long-ring missiles. this regime has three competing groups, military being one of them. the military knows if it's being demoted the one thing it can do to rescue its position is create a crisis in a crisis the military ills is needed. the guys with the guns are also the ones who now have an incentive to use them. >> we're all worried about iran. >> well, ya, and he should be worried about iran but we should also be worried about the connections that iran has with north korea, because that nuclear weapon that was detonated in january, and that long-range missile fired off last week, those are really developed with iran's money, which means once these things are proven to work, they're going to end up in iran's
inventory. >> enjoy it all today. may be gone tomorrow. >> absolutely. >> gordon chang, mighty good at this stuff. appreciate your insight. hate, the cease-fire plan for syria, cessation of hostilities. fantastic idea but can anybody tell the islamic state? also, insider attacks on airlines. two jetliners now targeted. now there are questions whether the terrorists are getting in cozy relationship with the airport staffers to slip through the security. the intel is ahead as we approach the bottom of the hour and the top of the news. i think we should've taken a left at the river. tarzan know where tarzan go! tarzan does not know where tarzan go. hey, excuse me, do you know where the waterfall is? waterfall? no, me tarzan, king of jungle. why don't you want to just ask somebody? if you're a couple, you fight over directions.

secretary of state john kerry said diplomats agreed to a cessation of hostilities set to begin next week. secretary kerry admitted any cease-fire would not clue all of the other groups in control of isis. would not include isis ands a quite terrorists and russians say they'll key going forwards with their campaign, who is ceasing? despite the peace talks during or proxy war in syria, assad said he plans to retake the entire country. in an interview with the french news agency, the dictator aid mit, quote, it could take a long time. five years of war in syria killed some 470,000 people according to activists with the syrian center. i'd love to get on the map again. that map sort of told the whole story. didn't know you were watching
it. see this? this is the insanity that is syria. just part of it. the regime, the regular government, the assad regime, they control all this stuff here. see this stuff? this color right here, this orangey, ready color that's correct what the government of the whole country controls. isis controls all the dark blue back. looks like amoebas. al qaeda controls the little brown speckness the northwest. the kurds control that stuff up there in the north. the kurds on both side of the turkish border and isis and the rebels have control of the parted that look like an old new york city cab. that's why it's so confusing and difficult. andrew is with us, fellow at the d.c. think tank where he focuses on syria. he has made bash shall al-assad and author of "in the lion's' den. "the this battle appears not to
be going well and isn't our >> certainly is. russia's intervention starting on september 30th has been a game-changer in many ways and allowed the assad regime, which has very limited manpower and was losing the war, to go on the offensive and take large swaths parts of southern syria and turn the tables, at least for now, on the opposition. >> what do you make hoff the cessation of fighting, eight alerts on my phone last night. wonder if isis got the alert. >> well, it was never against isis or al qaeda affiliates but thursdays the two groups the u.s. and russia do not agree on which groups are terrorists and which are not. the russians see most of the rebels as, quote, terrorists because they're fighting the assad government. we don't, and the united states backs a number of those groups covertly with weapons systems. so, the other part of this that doesn't make sense to me, but
probably will make sense relatively soon, is the cessation of hostilities doesn't occur for another week. while aid is dropped into various part nets country. very interesting in the geneva -- sorry -- the message that came out of munich yesterdayit's the regime's areas that are going receive a lot of the aid first and then the other opposition areas. so, very mixed picture. >> people ask do you meet people on the street and they recognize you and ask you interesting questions. nobody has ever said to me, what's up with syria? no one ever. why can't we get people to care about this and how big a problem could this become? >> it's a good question. i think first of all syria is complicated. more people know about syria, whether it's because of isis or because it's the center of the homeland episode this year, but i think americans, though you're right are focused on domestic affairs. why this matters is that what happens in syria doesn't stay in
syria. this is not like vegas. the event wes see in northern syria are sending millions of people northword as a result of the worry, airstrikes could cause a lot of right-wing governments to come to power in europe. therefore loosening up u.s. alliances with western europe and central european countries and nat would water downmñ1nmw sanctions on russia and that is exactly what they want. >> that is goal number one. it's great to talk to you, andrew, wish we had more time. i hope you'll come back again. >> anytime. thank you for having me. >> andrew tablier, appreciate it. new concerns that terroritters now focusing on making connections with airport workers who exploit security loopholes and carry out attacks on planes. an cysts say two recent terror attacks on planes may canada the terrorists are fork cussing on carrying out inside jobs. investigators say an airport worker may have played a roll in the bombing of the plane in somalia where only the suspect
is believed to have died. they say the isis bombing of a have been an inside job. 224 people died in the attack in october. catherine herridge is live in washington. >> when you look at the last two plots the device was smugglinged threw airport security using an airport insider. down by been isis bomb in egypt used an improvised device with a two-hour timer and this week an airport mechanic was arrested. in somali it was allegedly an airport insider that passed the laptop commuter to the suicide bomber who used a wheelchair to further disgoes his intention. the home happen security department has made changes. >> we are focused and we're considering more that we should be doing with respect to overseas airports. we have the ability through
airlines, through relationship with other countries to put out guidelines that influence the behavior of airport authorities and airport security at overseas airports. >> on their fails these attacks -- on their nice these attack seem to be organized by isis in egypt and al qaeda affiliate in somalia, so shows some level of premeditation to infiltrate the system and get around intense screening of passengers and go after the baggage handers or the katrinaing crews. sect johnson was speaking in code when he said the u.s. has some kind of leverage with the airlines overseas. $ml3 is that if the foreign airports are not meeting the standards they're able to talk off but can not get landing permission at american airports. that's the leverage we have. >> catherine, thank you. >> you're welcome. >> computer hacking chased since the days matthew broderick sat in front of a computer and tried
to avow thermonuclear war. but turns out teenagers can take on some pretty big targets. for instance, cops just busted a officials. we're talking the cia director, head of homeland security and the list goes on. that kid's parents would probably ground him for this but the feds may have other punishment in mind. that and why the governor of louisiana just told lsu to go to hell.
go to hell, lsu, go to hell. straight from the governor's mansion in louisiana because the louisiana governor edwards says his state's budget problem is so bad it could mean the end of lsu football as we know it. governor john bell edwards says louisiana is facing a def said of $940 million. governor john bell edwards says that by law the state has to
balance the budget by the end of each fiscal year but the governor says if the state legislators do not agree to raise tacks some campuses may go bankrupt. the for says students attending state universities, including lsu, might not be able to get their grades or even graduate if the money runs out. ineligible to play in his words, and i quote, that means you can say farewell to college football next fall. death in death valley? critics say the governor is trying to put in place the largest tax hike the history of the state of louisiana. hacking the private e-mail accounts of a top u.s. government official is in custody. law enforcement force tells fox news the fbi helped british police arrest the 16-year-old. over the last few months the group called,sd hmm, cracers wih attitude. has been releasing private info
from the officials, including the cia director john brenneman, the national intelligence director james clapper, and the homeland security secretary jeh johnson. the fed says the leaks did not include any sensitive information. remy spencer is here, criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor. hackers, 16-year-old. >> it's unbelievable, the amounñ of information a teenager can obtain, and the danger of what they're doing is unprecedented. it's like they have a key to national security and privacy information. what is interesting here and probably most people don't know is that our federal government and pretty much every state in the country has laws that will criminal -- criminal laws which allow for the prosecution of so, just breaking in to a
government computer system or to some sort of national secure computer will in fact get you prosecuted. the penalties, they range from anything as minor as a fine to anything as serious as 20 years in federal prison. so, the hacking in and of itself is a crime. what makes this situation unique is that they didn't just hack the computer system. they rewrote the code for the encryption, and -- >> wow. >> the encryption makes these things private which makes it difficult or impossible for someone like me to access this afghanistan. so they're not just getting information bus they're changing the -- but they're changing the system and that's what is so dangerous about the case. it's hard to imagine a 16-year-old would have some malice that hey would want to do something with thus but it's certainly possible. >> or boredom. >> yes. >> how do you convince kids in advance you shouldn't do this, something big and bad might
happen to you. kids don't get the big picture. >> i don't think a teenager's brain is fully form at 16 and can't even contemplate the consequences of their actions, but the fact they can do it is what makes it so dangerous, because in the hands of someone else, who does want to harm this country, those kinds of national vña5juatñç be deadly.information you. >> thank you. >> a court ruling today could be bad news for facebook, setting a dangerous precedent. france has now ruled that a father of three has the right to sue the facebook after it shut down his account five years ago. the man says he posted a 19th his profile picture that happened to contain nudity. his he says that affect suspended his count without warning. he is now seeking $22,000 in damages and claims it's a case of free speech and censorship of a social network.
the court agreed. no word from facebook. it's been a thousand years since the catholic and russian orthodox churches split and they've been at odds but today leaders of the two churches held an historic meeting. when the alert came on the phone, it showed up on the phone and it said, the pope and this guy speak for the first time in a thousand years, i thought they buried the headline. the pope is not 1,000. rude on ap's fall. and how fun to say "go to hell lsu." ah!

a judge has to approve the deal but the "washington post" estimates even passenger will get a whopping 82-cents. one of the suits claimed uber charged a free of more than two bucks a check for background checks on the drivers but the company did not do the background checks. uber will stop using safety-related advertising language and will rename it safe ride fee to a booking fee. the settlement covers 25 million riders from january of this year. >> on this day in 1908, six cars lined up in man hoot tan to kick off a wild race around the world. went down in the dead of winter, across three continents. drivers facing blizzards, freezing temperatures,. miles of thick mud. some areas didn't have roads. after months without heat or even a windshield, the american car was first to cross the finish line in paris. experts say the race helped con rinse people cars were reliable
and raised awareness for a better highway system in the united states, the great race, 108 years ago%$ today. this very day, oil up 12%, the most in seven years. look at that. >> eight days to the south carolina primary and a battle for the south is on. six g.o.p. candidates crisscrossing the state as they continue to duke it out. john roberts is in greenville, south carolina, with the latest on the southern brawl. >> reporter: charles, good afternoon here. here on the campaign trail, the man to beat, donald trump, still not in south carolina. he is in florida today and continues to bound the competition from outside the state. last night at a big rally in baton rouge, louisiana, trump took aim at jeb bush and president bush who is coming here on monday to campaign for his brother, saying the iraq war was a disaster, and continued
