Another -- special report online and -- every -- form right there I think you for joining us here in our new location on the fox news live paint.
And these guys over here.
Already riled up and misbehaving let's bring -- then CK senior writer for the weekly standard your some powers columnist for the Daily Beast.
And syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer who made some very interesting -- since during the break.
I can't -- does but what we have now here's the full statement from the White House today after an apparent military conclude that has taken leadership from president Mohamed Morsi.
No longer being referred to by leaders there this is the live look in Cairo where millions have been gathered in the streets for a few days now.
And now a lot of celebrations going on today as theory is a change apparent authority so.
I'm looking out the press release serve the statement released from the White House Charles you've read it your first reaction -- what we're hearing from our administration.
Years the second word of the communique.
As you would expect -- -- this administration.
His eyes so we're starting there.
What is -- disturbing as a second paragraph.
Where the president essentially says yes he expressed regret concern but -- the removal of that's perfectly okay.
But and then he says he calls on a return to democracy that's fine.
As soon as possible.
-- talks about avoiding arbitrary arrest of the president and his supporters.
Which immediately comedians -- lead the US is extending its protection over them.
Now look we heard you -- us a little earlier.
That two of the chief supporters of the Morrissey have been arrested.
If you having a coup and you got.
Millions of counter demonstrators supported her mom -- more seek out industry could declaring they're ready for martyrdom.
And they bring their shrouds with them that means they want to fight.
If you're gonna do -- didn't do a -- and make sure that you kids and control the situation.
If it requires arresting anybody for a day or two or three they're not going to be stuck in jail you know -- prisoners that way you know -- Mandela was.
They have to be temporary way to shut down the opposition prevent a civil war then I don't think it's our our called.
To go -- to protecting people who are now threatening the civil war and then second he said the president is saying I have.
Directed the relevant departments and agencies to review the implications.
Under US law offers citizens what he means is unless you do what I want to -- -- you act within the bounds I give you.
We could suspend -- should be a catastrophe.
For the new government.
Which already -- that Egypt is really.
Under very damaged at the brotherhood is done with a one year of governance where the economy is completely fallen apart.
Rather than supporting them them pumping in day.
And doing everything that we can to make the opposition succeed.
This is the president and extending the sort of a -- of protection over the very people.
That anyone who was -- -- Egypt who are deeply anti American and -- the overwhelming majority of egyptians want out.
Strong letter to follow.
This is only my initial read his -- and wait till I get ally -- -- be downright blistering and by the time we have a chance to fully digest.
-- -- -- -- But you know I think you -- a more generous and I would be in terms of what you -- what I.
-- -- -- I views on July 3 -- usein and it's OK for him to say that you know they are concerned and that about the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces remember president Marcy and spent.
Concerned they who's concerned that we should be happy and then this is an outrageous statement that even if he ever express this any.
The level of dissatisfaction.
With the authoritarian who was running this country to have all of these people out.
In the streets I mean.
In this is this is the opposite of what he should have -- by the way also it's -- amusing to see if they're gonna listen to him I think he's now set out.
A standard where he's probably going to be embarrassed the United States is almost -- going to be embarrassed because I highly doubt.
That the military's -- more like -- listen to this than that.
What we're seeing on the screen right now.
And see we just sat here during the cell and talked about what the US needed to do what the response he'd be from the White House.
-- lineup with what you thought that we would get.
I guess it wonderful what I thought it would get.
Had hoped that we would get something a little bit different the president didn't say that he was.
He says that we're -- its concern apparently I'm not watching special report as they were during the final week it's -- that they weren't listening to the three of us making their edits.
Every I think that's actually very interesting question -- -- Was there anything that happened under the Morsi tenure.
That it gave rise to the Obama administration in the form of a generic State Department statement a statement from the podium at the State Department or something we came out Jay Carney now.
Where they expressed quote deep concern.
About something happened there whether it was the NGOs I would imagine they they probably did I don't remember.
But that the other a number of things that that happened during that tenure.
We did not get any expression of deep concern.
At the very first in the very first moments of Mohamed -- tenure when he called in his inaugural press for the release of the blind Sheikh.
The Obama administration did not publicly denounce that comment that request that demand was Mormon demand.
He said nothing I think you know more she probably yeah.
Understood from the lack of response from the Obama administration that he had a pretty free hand to run here and it turns out that I think he did have a pretty.
Is similar clothing usually you just said this is a -- initiatives column where he talks about.
After the power grab these presidential decrees that -- unconstitutional presidential decrees.
I'm and that is that Ignatius writes the spokesman Victoria -- -- said we call for -- and encourage all parties to work together and call for all egyptians to resolve their differences.
Over these important issues peacefully and through democratic -- -- And Ignatius is not exactly a thundering denunciation.
This is what they say about his -- about his -- constitutional power grab into turning to do an autocrat.
And and nothing I mean.
-- level of concern -- -- top of the well and will they don't forget that when he when the comments surfaced today he had made about.
And about the Jewish people and it very derogatory comments that.
And I don't remember seeing outrage from our administration over that.
-- only -- I can remember initiation expressing deep concern over -- thing is over Jews settling in Jerusalem.
Member of the Biden.
Biden was in Jerusalem BP announced some settlements and you know it was sort of held for about a week.
So yes -- the Jews act badly in the eyes of Obama settling in their own.
Haitian capital which is under Jewish control and which has been open to all religions ever since Israel.
Came into possession of it in and it wasn't before -- -- deep concern look I'm willing to give them the word -- The reason -- -- because the guy was elected that's the only thing that would military begins.
What has just happened and because our policy.
Generally is a supporter of democracy around the world.
We have to say that we regret but we put the blame on Morrissey.
Because and democracy is not simply an election the best example is the brotherhood -- In Gaza the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Is Hamas he wins elections kicked in 2006.
We have not had -- election since we are never gonna have an election.
Because once it takes power that's the end of it if one man one vote one time.
And that's how would wouldn't be so broke through and had its way and if he didn't have all of those people industry.
Who want to read you a couple of comments because we mounted her folks weighing -- I'm -- -- -- please correct me if I'm.
Type in and tell me if I'm saying that wrong but it's an interesting spelling I think that's -- Says no more money for shabby allies we stood on her own feet as a young nation borrowing money from France we paid it back.
Let these fledgling nation CNN their own feet no more aid please.
The region we got the French -- at the time was not because the French love -- For American hot dogs it's consumed the French foreign.
Hundred years competition with the British.
In North America and in Europe and supported the American revolutionaries help them.
So we in the same way are giving our money to the military needs -- Thing in that it would help us in the long run and it just past.
OK a couple more comments Nancy Todd says since our ambassador messed up so badly -- safe they -- talking about in Paterson.
And the comments that she need.
The last year and it went ecstatic if he's right but essentially on -- that she had real doubts about.
The groups they -- -- allegations that were being made and things that are pending people please and I will find -- are so that we get it right.
She said some say that street action will produce better results than elections to be honest my government and I are deeply skeptical.
That would deeply again yeah that's right it didn't.
Pop up there I don't here's just a pattern and she's still there I mean yeah I mean I don't know -- about -- you know I think that.
There are there are some people that would argue there are sort of -- quads -- democratic coups and this would probably come the closest to that and and and the if you think about it when we question it if there was a bloody uprising if if these people in the street had just stormed the government.
-- overtook it now I think we would say that they were trying to get their government back.
So you could argue that.
If the military does what they say they're doing you know again we have to be skeptical about evidence that they don't want kids are saying that they're doing which is they're just.
Deposing him and then they're going to -- -- you know elections and a duly elected leader.
Then why what's the difference really at the end of the day you know -- it's that they're doing what would happen and it just normal.
Uprising right and -- less violence right exactly some.
-- on one and says Iran is going to take advantage of this situation Steve how worried are you that.
Outside powers we'll get involved here Iran or any others.
What's been interesting if you've been monitoring Twitter feed the supreme leader he's been increasingly.
Caustic and -- today.
And these so I guess.
-- this time when the United States mistakenly shot down and Iranian.
Airliner in 1988 I believe it was.
With me pictures of blood and he's very some odd behavior from.
-- -- Feed.
I think you're -- we'll certainly try to take advantage of any instability.
The interest in question we've heard during the show that nominal bar that was was playing a major role in at least.
He's preliminary transition talks.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We want in Iran and that's pretty good -- the end from my perspective.
Haven't -- of -- guy with a powerful position in Egypt would be -- -- Tremendous step backwards.
With respect to Iran with respect to region.
You know and Jennifer Griffin was saying any of the reputation as -- -- pro western.
And she's -- and I think she accurately characterize that reputation but it gives me no great comfort.
In part because he was somebody who I think wasn't -- -- Ukrainians and I think the origin of that abolition of the pro western -- -- he really enjoys.
The five star accommodations in hotels in -- you -- usually don't forget it.
He's live for the last fifteen years ago but -- -- it's very comforted because remember in Syria as we speak.
The brotherhood is supporting the Sunni side.
And Iran is supporting them the people who are slaughtering them so yeah there's really complicated relationship where.
Iran in the Muslim Brotherhood are essentially fighting each other proxy war in Syria and here you would think -- -- or rabbit coincidence.
-- Morrissey was the first I think who welcome.
What he went to Iran and was it the other way around yet but it looked like a rapprochement was the first since.
Yes 79 revolution remember it was -- had accepted the shop.
This was really origin of the animosity.
So I mean all these were relationship comedy and was -- -- say.
How the saudis were the first to sort of to welcome the -- And the deposing of the Muslim Brotherhood again it reflects the war in Syria as well and a sudden denounced.
Yeah I mean it's.
You you mean -- you need -- score card to play the players are aware of numbers I think or you know -- Shiite in between.
Media I think agencies who.
I am gonna we're gonna give it to the delay of volunteers employer mandate but we just got a statement from my company I know you are -- you're very wound up and excited that that's -- topic on which you if they wound up she was on my right I don't know I don't know what.
And -- just saying I'm a little concerned about what's happening.
-- -- -- Senator Bob -- the Republican and Tennessee who's the ranking member on the foreign relations committee says this.
We -- -- -- aspirations of the Egyptian people seeking a peaceful secure inclusive government.
He says in determining the future of US assistance the administrations and look at the regional picture with our vital national security interests in mind.
And so your points to about it -- good time to pull out we'll see with the administration ultimately decides.
-- let's talk about Obama care a key piece of -- the employer mandate and if you're fifty or more employees.
You're gonna have did you -- I guess it's not about stocking up 49 or employee -- I hate and safety are not known your weight under that no rational right now.
We don't want -- out here.
You know what you believe that -- -- like to be physically fit into the cause I don't remember.
You employ a fifty people from then on you're going to have to either provide -- insurance options or her.
Or you gonna pay fines.
And then you won't be able to afford -- -- fiftieth birthday party come.
But it's and that employer mandate was the -- January 1 it is now going to be delayed until 315.
There seems to be some agreement on this panel that there is a political calculations this -- here's.
Finish -- my agent.
Yeah tell people out of the last -- of people weighing in -- say.
-- -- trying to find the one to one woman said that that her husband is already had his our style back because you know if you're.
Thirty hours more than your considered full time which to -- is this point in history and don't think being -- former labor and employment lawyer.
That thirty hours of consider full time now and the fair labor standards act.
It's its own everything shows you have these.
Who probably haven't worked a day in their lives sitting in Washington draw -- plans and decide -- let's make -- thirty hours a week they take up.
Number out of a hat and then millions of people are affected in their lives in a deeply destructive way and they've done this.
Do you know over 2000 pages of this arbitrariness.
To -- to reorganize won six of the economy.
And they imagine that they somehow I've gotten it right it is a train wreck and they have just discovered that there's about a mile of track.
I -- that's missing.
Well I think what's interesting too is a lot of very specific about the timeline for when these things again and -- and you know this is a deadline it's written into the law.
And there's a lot of criticism that when something's not working for this administration and it just doesn't follow the law it either doesn't defended in court.
It changes its mind it issues an executive -- regulation and is in conflict with a law.
No question I mean there's very specifically says I think it was section 1513 if I'm not mistaken December does offer up in 2013.
I was convinced.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well I'll tell you.
Won't be the first time.
No I think I think you can actually make an argument.
At the risk of some hyperbole that.
Obamacare that that this Affordable Care Act will end up being the most anti democratic.
Law in the history of the recent history of the country when you look at the let the meetings that -- used to get past.
When you look at the wholesale re you re right of both that the tax penalty question by the Supreme Court and the Medicaid question by the Supreme Court and then you look now.
At the executive branch -- decision Willy -- decision to implement some of it not implement -- others about it.
Take what was written into the law and just disregarded because it's inconvenient.
I -- at a certain point we we our nation -- positive we have to actually.
Do these things the way that they're supposed to be before we start looking like Egypt and I think for that.
I don't do nasty case for debt free event returning in the jail free -- trying to help -- death thing and is trying to help you can't these kinds of generals to step forward.
In this country have something to read from poor populous.
I think I don't know if that's your real safe safer -- Does -- -- says large fortune 500 company Kroger which is an excellent pressure story that I discovered in college.
I had to company policy now to limit hours of part time workers specifically because of Obama care ramifications now this person's officially speaking on behalf of Kroger but.
You know on the bachelor were two years ago we had -- -- -- He already overweight or -- -- -- avatar.
Is they unicorn.
So how could I say now you know.
But I don't understand why they would Oregon be implementing something that hasn't been -- -- he doesn't have wanted to be.
There's an there's an actual reason yes.
Because that the act when the laws implemented -- when the law was to have been implemented.
After January 12014.
US government was -- -- look at compliance by.
Gauging how companies -- in the previous twelve months and then they bump that up and said after they got complaints they said okay we won't look at how you became the first twelve months.
We'll give you if the final six months of 2013 and that's how we're gonna judge your compliance if you wanted to get your employee employees down below the thirty hour threshold you had to have done that in advance in order to actually.
Qualify for that designation when the government came in and looked at how -- game.
It's priceless head of the me.
Part of my head and eat meat department and her husband hey look if if everybody agrees and I think -- -- does seem to agree that this is a bad.
Part of me alive now you guys that are really a whole lot stop -- everyone hang me that this is about I don't I don't -- argument.
Against delaying yet today -- -- 88 that I mean that does seem to be the solution the solution isn't -- -- let's let's.
Implement something that's going to be terrible it's gonna cost -- -- some.
The fact unemployment rate right.
And in the end the reason that they have to lose the in the mandate for the employer and the management -- Is because you can't have a much to being an expanded to thirty million people who don't have health care.
Somehow in the money has to come from somewhere it's gonna come from young -- things.
Who have no health insurance -- rational decision nor have only catastrophic and you make -- Purchasing Cadillac plan which nobody at the -- when he needs and then you force employers and -- also providing.
Even small businesses that traditionally.
Can afford it or they could go out of business or are starting out and so can afford.
So what you're doing here is sort of if you take away the mandate and then you tell -- individual mandate.
The whole thing is unworkable because you don't have the money for.
And that's why all of this was done it's arbitrary and affected you decide you know thirty -- here are so much there these numbers are -- -- of -- -- But the logic behind it is we have to force people.
Into giving or getting health insurance who don't wanted to or needed because it has to subsidize all the people who were going to include.
That's the way it works.
And you'll see additional complications I think now with respect the individual -- -- other things because one of the ways in which the government was going to determine eligibility.
To purchase on exchanges with subsidies was by looking at the reporting that was coming from employers and if the players were offering qualifying insurance.
Then these individuals would have been in a position to buy insurance on these exchanges with subsidies but if you don't have the reporting from the -- Lawyers.
How do you know who's -- who's eligible -- not so they're gonna have to address that they'll have to.
I don't know how -- well but they'll have to figure out a way to try to address that.
I wanna get a couple of comments in here discus since Steve's point as he's trying to bring -- background.
Sharon in Cordoba says not following a constitution a terrible economy ruling -- radically.
Sounds familiar doesn't night.
She took off re -- -- after Kennedy cannot clear that I don't actually I'm not an -- -- What is very good -- not comparing President Obama made about an hour -- here Canadian nationals couldn't know -- -- -- left -- Didn't take anything and I think we have that I -- -- -- be.
And yes well you can now 10367040.
-- -- -- -- -- 10367.
Says the individual mandate is going to be toxic what is going to happen when a large percentage choose the fine instead.
-- and -- I mean we do have everybody has self interest in having insurance I mean nobody wants it both -- about.
But if you're jets' 21 vendor.
You know invincible -- everywhere that H thinks.
Today is a more rational decision as to pay -- fine.
Because it's less than your paying -- mean that the insurance you'll get them through a government is imposing on you.
They so overpriced everybody understands the young are going to be subsidizing the old.
Because if you win by the actuarial rates -- will be paying a six.
But when his sixty year old patient premiums which is what it is today.
Good base on the cost of a sixty year old as opposed to a -- hero but the congress is decreed.
You pick another number out of it should be six it should only be.
We used to should be if there was just twice as much and the money is not gonna -- -- -- it's gonna go to -- so if you're a young person yourself pay -- fine.
I'll take my chances -- perhaps a by a catastrophic plan.
Down the road somewhere and I'll be -- rational economic too soon.
-- -- So just for piers pumping his earlier comments and I -- health care of their -- and lobby 2000 -- is the NSA will be calling.
Which gets us to the topic of the NSA.
Edwards hadn't Bolivia not on the plane.
And the US being blamed for that whole situation yesterday I thought it was interesting today that Oliver Stone on the big Hollywood guy said he would grants asylum to spend.
And what options as he has last.
However -- has granted this committee on the is fundamentally we don't know not really -- he bought it on the island he could probably and maybe that's where he and -- and I think.
I am getting at.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And members units -- Asian.
And he should be given asylum in -- -- -- -- not -- interfering -- a number -- the members of this administration have publicly said he's done huge damage lives are in danger -- -- -- himself is -- we now so there is no I don't think -- by their own admission -- eight and remember who was it was on Susan Rice has now taken on her new position last game as a -- by contrast those said that she didn't think that this whole -- leaking was hurting the presidency and that it wasn't damaging -- in the -- -- conflicting statements which -- sort -- proves my point within the -- administration right.
-- -- -- so let me ask you this is a question.
Do you think that al-Qaeda has not adjusted the way it operates I based -- -- was this every nation -- they've gone back here yet they're not doing their plant cut al-Qaeda FaceBook page anymore.
You know they were not easy -- -- not I highly doubt you I was all of the reports earlier this halted through Verizon in the United States I mean that everything and this is targeting arm over her son had a little article on how how -- not a popular anymore.
I am really getting alliance to grant losing everything if they're targeting with these programs are unite our companies in the United States -- I don't understand.
That's how -- -- -- technology -- do you think al-Qaeda is ever considered perhaps that they need to have communications are being routed through US companies demanded that just doesn't make any sense like I think that we that we that -- that this is somehow -- Saddam that we monitor phone call or anywhere people within the US where they are -- -- kind of candidate you -- SA is understands people orchestrated this -- Isn't used to this is news to all of -- Music Americans are being spied on not al-Qaeda is being spied on her that apparently inside and means that the actual details of.
These operations have not been publicly reported for a long time before why would al-Qaeda not change any -- breaking a law that has a brain.
Wouldn't it wouldn't consider that their calls are being trapped in other emails from being -- and just refused to see you -- to believe that that kind we've disrupted -- without terrorist events.
No -- that I says -- I can't refuse to believe that al-Qaeda has not and it did not already consider that their calls are being trapped in the UK we're still make tracks and -- they were still making -- they're making them through -- -- -- they're taking every effort they can to avoid that you know I'm I'm I'm saying like I don't think this information is suddenly where they're like oh my god the United States.
-- I think you're making my.
You're you're giving a lot of credit union.
-- -- al-Qaeda had.
Operatives union here in Yemen is doing -- don't know the details I think in college cell phone calls are routed through the United States chomping at.
You know this fight tumors are deprived of it's -- decision if we miss it feels a little better -- Have a lot of different -- that it.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- Regardless of whether it has in actuality -- the country.
Who that guy has been shot.
Do recharge under -- system for serious crimes and he's now a fugitive so under that basis alone you don't have to conclude.
He's guilty somebody you know if somebody is dead and associate him a suspect in the murder and charged and disappears into France let's say.
We would pursue that person and try to get them.
Extradited and if we could we would try to make sure they can get what is unjust -- But -- We'll have given him strength discussion as to whether he.
-- did the keys yeah.
Passionate about it he says there's more common knowledge and it's a crying now like I don't acknowledge that you do I mean it's not.
Forget about this case generally -- -- -- somebody with a crime.
You pursue them if they escaped to Canada you don't say oh they're gone we're not going to try to get them.
And that and that's how the secretary of state John Kerry as different as she says not diplomatic issue -- is the law enforcement issue I'm just talking.
About the -- on the basis you don't have to conclude that he's guilty.
And you don't have concluded is to just or unjust indictment because if you you -- make -- on that basis and then you've got to argue.
Then then how can you argue that he's innocent until proven you can judge whether -- Justice Department I have these conditions are correct controller charges.
I wish that there is an after special report online she's constantly keep continue to -- this -- but we are being given the rap I just -- to thanks to.
I know what -- excited they love hearing your very spirited discussions.
There was one last one that I wanted to read here and for some lose it but it basically and I will give you credit if I can find your name.
Basically said that they thought -- should be couch is here's that Charles can analyze all of us while we're having her dispute and he's out on the make up from that happened in the minutes.
From Alice in Indiana -- -- and on that.
So you know normally Obama doesn't want -- you know you don't learn there's no.
Isabel head of the meat department and -- -- they -- department for a couple of I fed reserve report online we'll see tomorrow having wonderful Independence Day.
