Good morning from Washington DC I'm Peter do you -- -- for -- Your buzz cuts -- the morning taken directly from Fox News first our new email newsletter.
Number one we've got the White House says ousting -- side.
It's not our -- the exact line from -- yesterday at the White House was the options we're considering.
Are not about regime change which is interesting because.
Almost exactly two years ago obviously -- and the president.
Said quote for the sake of the Syrian people the time has come for president decide to step aside.
The next buzz cut Obama marks Martin Luther King's Speech at fifty the White House passed along guidance.
That at quarter to three today the president's going to be on the mall delivering remarks at the let freedom ring ceremony commemorating the fiftieth anniversary.
Of the march on Washington for jobs and freedom next up buzz cut.
IRS pain pill obamacare feeds the IRS just came out the new rules yesterday.
They say basically you're going to be subject to penalty if you don't have insurance.
This worth that's gonna cost either 95.
A year or 1% of your income whichever is more to be a lot.
And that's eventually -- -- up to 695.
Dollars a person or two and a half percent.
-- your income again could be a lot of money unless.
You get your -- -- three union sponsored plan.
Or through a temp agency because then the IRS says you're not subject to penalty.
Next let's cut the GOP's high tech game plan this comes from a story in the Washington examiner.
That basically the Republicans think the president's reelection campaign did a much better job.
With their digital so.
The line from the examiner.
-- -- -- -- -- are collecting data from social networks.
About targeted demographic groups and allow a campaign.
To deliver customized digital ads.
To his view as a dozen or so voters -- the last buzz cut and this is really out of left field.
The title is working into Oxford but that.
Working -- in the dictionary now.
And instead of a picture of just Miley Cyrus which would probably.
-- -- the story there's an actual definition that I have right here.
-- to work is a verb.
And it is defined as -- dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner.
Involving the -- hit movements at a low squatting stance and now to show us.
The resting hit movements and -- flooding stands we have -- congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel and Bob -- managing editor has to fill.
Thank you guys for coming in now I -- my kind of all right just -- -- -- back.
Still everybody get viewers might be disappointed as.
We do -- -- off talking about Syria.
Today it sounds lake.
Many members of congress want the president to come and ask their permission.
Before he goes into.
Four is anything in Syria we have a sound bite from Bob corporate.
But I would hope they would also come back and seek an authorization the president does have -- ability as commander in chief to start activities like those that are being discussed.
But I think he's much better off if he gets approval from congress.
Aren't so how many members of congress is this like growing movement.
I've got I've got the letter that's got -- from Virginia has written to the president supposed to go out this afternoon.
And -- he says engaging our military in Syria window direct threat to the United States existing without prior congressional authorization.
Would violate the separation of powers that is clearly delineated in the constitution.
His letters picked up some steam is now up to I think 48 Republicans eight Democrats saying Mr.
President calls back for emergency session.
If you give -- 24 hours notice -- the -- for twelve hours you can have your authorization that.
How seriously do those but there's a few dozen out of a few hundred members how seriously do they really want to come back.
From their vacation.
I don't think they do -- but if they were called they what I think politically it might have any good news for Obama I think the moment -- asks where it is looking like imminent.
Action on Syria when we saw this debate on Libya to -- the same members basically work for calling for Obama.
To ask congress is permission.
And it might we got an email from our senior producer on the hill chat program that says speaker Boehner.
Still not briefed by anybody lighthouse of bell.
Whatever president's got -- him for Syria.
Nancy Pelosi the minority leader for the Democrats has been briefed by Susan Rice.
This act this escorted are they trying to cut.
Is it -- -- seems to be all over the map workers sounds like he's had who Republican senator from Tennessee has had several.
Conversation John Kerry.
But guess puzzling about the -- thing the other day his staff.
Said hey you got to consult with congress and they immediately got a phone call from a White House senior administration official not the president.
But then Boehner saying I've heard much from you guys and you want to do this so what's the deal and so.
It seems a little half -- some of the consultation with members of congress will and so I mean how -- -- bill.
Big we got this whole list from the White House all these different foreign leaders delighted that the administration is calling.
-- -- Call long distance somebody that they -- call downstream -- Republicans I think that's -- problem for the White House I mean obviously they're not going to congress ask permission if -- -- Republican Mike Walter Jones who.
Very critical of the -- or happy voted for he says it Lilly's President Bush came to congress stands for -- and on Libya now Syria.
This president is not so it's it is cousin -- that that they don't just talk to -- make some calls at least quiet down.
The members that especially the speaker of the house that is -- Wool and so far the polling.
Has suggested that a majority of Americans.
Not too excited about -- taking military action in Syria.
Does this help or hurt the president's case that he's not talking to congress.
It hurts a bit I think it hurts him really with his base I mean you have the NSA controversy and -- -- this is based doesn't like war that's for sure.
What -- and accomplished I think he's a very difficult questions and then there's no easy answers here arm but he he didn't box himself in with the with the Red Line.
On Egypt they're saying it wasn't too and everyone knows it's a -- so you know foreign policy is is proving to be very.
It's coming back to the forefront and I think you know this is gonna hurt him with his -- congress not so much maybe just because people don't think -- it kind of.
I talked to Loretta Sanchez democratic California last night who is on the armed services committee says she's very.
Familiar at all these issues and she says you know I have reservations about.
Military action -- people think -- and allowed some missiles into Syria and to be clean and neat no big deal.
And she wants to know you know what it did evolves into a wider conflict throughout the Middle East what you know Syria.
Can do some thing in response.
And what if we go into bigger Middle Eastern war and so there's somebody who's part of president's base who was supportive of the commander in chief.
But would like more consultation to say.
You know what's the game here what's the plan and what's the exit strategy and.
Yeah I think one of the key things here that everybody wants to know is does this make us safer I think most -- today it doesn't really matter does make it safer -- -- -- actually.
Make us it could be more dangerous for the United States I guess.
My question for both -- you might first.
If the president does not ask congress and he just sometimes say today or tomorrow.
Pushes the button and we start showing some sites and Syria.
Without congressional permission.
What's congress going to do that.
It seems to me that it -- up being even more bruising fall we're gonna have a lot of fights over fiscal matters but I think some of those folks who.
You know -- national security is their main portfolio.
Maybe a little agitated especially -- the speaker of the house feels like he has not been really consulted about what's going on -- you have.
The British parliament being called back in two.
To weigh in on this the French Parliament my understandings coming back as well -- so if the allies are saying hold off until we get our parliaments to weigh in.
Congress is saying hey what about us.
And quickly before we go to break I think it's a problem in the relationship between the present.
Boehner -- she is really to Syria don't last couple years this is not helping it get domestic and now for a policy issues it's it's going to be hectic -- All right.
Bob Cusack act like Emanuel but it's going to be back what's -- -- -- Might still be on the channel so you -- computer on for this in turn your TVC might get a little bit later we will be back after the break away if any leads senior advisor former senior advisor to senator Harry Reid and Daniel Garza from -- -- brave initiative state to thank you.
Behind him was his ministry.
His passion com.
His personal commitment to Christ and -- came.
Everything that he did it came out of it.
And you know.
And he he was a man but he was a man that had an extraordinary faith in god doesn't mean he wasn't a -- -- I'm in the sense that he didn't happen moments of weakness.
Himself to surrender.
To to that more.
That was Bernice King on a very important day here in Washington the fiftieth anniversary.
-- Martin Luther doctor Martin Luther King's I have a dream speech over in front of the Lincoln Memorial and we are very happy now to have Kelly right.
Not too far away from where that original speech was delivered and from where President Obama.
Will deliver remarks.
Here in about 3 hours Kelly good morning.
Good morning Peter -- and I'm fine thanks so guys that this stage -- is Powell Powell is the day unfolding so far.
A voting well let's turn over some rain and obviously the rain ties in with if you look at fifty years ago the symbolism of what took place then.
A clear day people walking -- yet.
They were doing with a lot of storm clouds.
Dumping on the black community in America at that time and they found a lot of sunlight.
And the dream of Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr.
The march for jobs and freedom which took place fifty years ago when these very steps.
Still echoes loud and clear throughout the hearts and minds of so many Americans because of what king was able to produce that day I dream that people embrace.
A dream that unfolded with the changing every releases in America as we know it.
And now fifty years later many people who were here at that time.
Still reflect on that day and say we've come a long way there are great strides that we must applaud.
Great gains that we must applaud and hold going to -- they're still a lot of work to be done.
And getting rid of all the impediments to fully realizing the dream that Doctor King -- for not only black Americans but all Americans.
And Kelly has said we've come a long way in fifty years how how different.
Is today's events and kind of themes and the speeches.
All the different people were -- -- today that was fifty years ago.
-- -- -- to be honest with you it is really is no different in the sense of what their message she is but it is different in the sense that they have.
A state of where -- -- knowing that people they have developed a great future for America.
By these steps made during the pioneering days of the civil rights struggle and era.
During the 1963 march on Washington and the subsequent events after that but today they're still talking about jobs.
When you look at 14% unemployment rate in the black community 25% unemployment for young African American males.
If you look at the state of illiteracy and the communities across America where every 26 seconds.
Some was dropping out of high school -- be a black Hispanic or Latino or white.
There's a problem in America with education you look at the poverty rate fifty 46 million people.
Living on the poverty line.
So many there were still talking about the same things that king was talking about a year fifty years ago and what -- -- -- to do after that which is a poor people's march trying to get people involved in dealing with.
They either rampant.
Insidious evil of poverty in America.
And and so many of them we'll talk about that today Bernice King spoke to me personally about it saying that she believes right now that are -- -- try to tell people.
Get out of your materialism get out of this selfish.
Some -- disk and really focus on what god has called all of us to be.
And that is our brother's keeper and our brother's killer.
All right Kelly right thank you very much for joining us this morning from the Lincoln Memorial.
-- joined here.
And Kelly has got an excellent piece on foxnews.com -- at the top there's an opinion -- It's it's.
More basically elaborating on what he said today and on its sit down with Bernice King.
It is very well written and I recommend that you open up a new tab right now.
If it doesn't freeze us.
And check that out foxnews.com.
And now on the same topic we're joined.
Here in studio three as a DC bureau we've got Daniel Garza from the -- great -- thank you and we have penny -- with a van.
Strategies formerly senior advisor to senator Reid thank you guys were both of them thinks it is you so Daniel first -- you.
How old how significant is today.
For all the people.
-- particularly who were there -- -- the ball.
Well I think obviously you can't underscore.
What was said at the time when it meant to hear those words that I think Dr.
Martin Luther King.
Had -- so eloquently.
I think today you know we we look back at that the -- there were that were said and maybe we pulled him up as a standard they're both conservatives and liberals like.
To say that you know don't judge a person by their color of the skin but the content of their character to a -- that means.
Look at that equals hard work self reliance that determination.
That is what's gonna get your -- in America and you'll be rewarded for your hard work for your determination yourself headlines say it it it echoes I think or at least at them.
It means a lot to to do I -- both ideological sides.
And -- having is today.
In the context of I mean.
Fifty years ago.
I would think that many people.
In the crowd many people speaking -- -- -- ever imagine that between thirteen and our president would be African American.
How how different is today that it was fifty years ago I mean where where is the -- Treatment in the country has evolved in the country has taken what was the inspiration that was given there on that speech in kind of the dream.
That Martin Luther King was giving out imprinted into practice into real practical means in -- -- -- people elected to congress been more engaged in public service.
Be more active in their own community.
Did you realize that they had a chance at an economic dream an educational -- Access to things that they really had had before so down the culmination fifteen years later and see that.
You know in body in having an app for the first African American elected president.
Really speaks volumes I think to get people distant you know like it wasn't just -- one speech what he did was the night and movement in what -- did was ignite the hopes and dreams of people going forward.
And what do you think the president should stay.
Today so that fifty years from now.
Were even further along but I think I heard you know various people kind of give him advice.
On -- television on the on the radio I think one of the best pieces of -- -- was.
Don't be Doctor King.
This list you know Doctor King was his own unique sound and was their party movement that -- the president -- state.
We hope -- -- that you would -- more JFK.
More LBJ out and take that power your office and -- -- your own words.
Rather than just trying to -- another southern preacher you know who happen to be Martin Luther King -- is very eloquent.
Just don't necessarily try to -- can't that be yourself and be the president of the United States.
And Daniel how how does President Obama move the ball with the speech -- I don't know if he moves the ball I think the idea of America has always been.
-- nothing can achieve anything in America in a relatively short amount of time.
That regardless of your religion regardless of the color your skin and that again you have that equal opportunity to achieve -- in America.
And so I think -- to speak to that did that injury idea.
That if you're free you can prosper in America and you can prosper for yourself as an individual and -- your family and you can contribute to your community.
Again regardless of your skin color I think those principles are eternally needs to do.
And this his fiftieth anniversary event today this celebration does come.
Only a few weeks after her the Zimmerman verdict which showed that you know even though we've come a long way.
Things are still really -- there's a lot of -- really are in fact there's some polling that suggests that.
Before the the Obama administration had initiated that I think the number was 74% of whites agreed that.
-- -- racial relations in America.
It's come down to about 52%.
That's how many points and -- for the black community has dropped that much more that there is more racial conflict.
-- mistrust now than there was witness from the first Obama term.
So obviously you I think you know individuals -- still try to reconcile.
You know that they're -- come to terms.
-- what they've seen.
As far as how you do it inequality has played out social justice is played out.
-- of course you know household median income has dipped especially for minority communities.
And they had the Hispanic community as well you know our unemployment rate has skyrocketed -- nine point 7% two points higher than.
The national average so I think you know people are.
Missed trusted -- trusting what what what is happening with the sort of big government policies that have been put into practice and I mean.
Based on what you just said.
T think -- an event like today is a way to make things any better to -- It's really it's -- -- -- to -- we are by no means that you're alluding to post racial.
Just because we have elected the first African American -- -- president of minority status.
Early post racial we still have a lot of heart conversations to be -- going forward and we still have a lot of policies to right.
-- -- -- was he the only one.
Abu we have elected in the next fifty years the first woman at first Hispanic if either party either if you -- first Asian Americans so.
I think that's kind -- date.
Challenge going forward is.
Making sure that this is not just don't want off time but that that we have -- so much as a community and as a nation.
That we are starting to see regardless of their race that we just with that we're electing our our finest or most -- leaders.
Until that optimism about future maybe unlike some other folks.
You know what I see as a Hispanic.
Governor send the ball in Nevada governor -- -- in New Mexico Marco Rubio Ted Cruz a Menendez in in New Jersey.
And -- that we have no a lot of young Hispanics who have graduated from universities and argued on the inside looking now you know in the halls of government.
At the local state and federal and and I think -- the folks that are coming up and -- -- so much potential so much talent.
I think we are close to achieving the dream of of equal opportunity and you and the good thing is that you've -- that now and are also government as well.
All right we got Daniel Garza and -- thank you both for joining us after the break.
More barbecues -- state to.
And we are back.
That video you see right now all money printing it's very appropriate because we found out yesterday.
How much it's gonna cost you would be an individual mandate part of obamacare if you -- get yourself health insurance -- start out.
Dollars per person per year as a all the fine.
Or 1% of your income whichever one is more.
By 2016 that's going to be 695.
Dollars per person per year as a penalty or two and a half percent.
Of your income and let's hear any union or at a temp agency.
Now the people are finding -- -- the dollars and cents in this.
How old is that good for president well.
On one hand he needs he needs to have young people sign up people in the late twenties that's they've got to get healthy people into the so called risk pool to the premiums stay low.
Armed so they need this enforcement trigger but at the same time when this story started to come out and then enforcing this and finding whether it's a hundred dollars or more and as we don't want.
I just think that's not going to be good press for the White House.
And -- the fact that the IRS.
Are basically the obamacare police just a few months after her the news first broke that they.
Are not always fair -- enforcement certain tax flaws that's another problem and I think this is gonna help Republicans in their effort.
Whether it's assessed successful and on and probably won't be but to just delay the individual part of it because they say -- a medium mutilated for employers.
So why not delayed for individuals and when individuals get hit by fines and they're gonna have to find these people because.
Member present moment and she didn't like this mandate it was Hillary Clinton's idea and then he came around on and so we need these helping people and so we need to have an enforcement trigger.
But Republicans -- say why treating big business and they have said.
Differently than just individual Americans -- how -- he thinks that.
I I think that's really difficult I think -- overall he's gonna.
Have to point to other successes of people who are uninsured people who saved from cancer because of health exchanges he's not gonna focus on the people that got penalized.
But even his base I mean his numbers have been eroding in the last few months are they gonna care you know -- stated that he gets around.
You know a lot of this stuff -- -- game January 1 he's got a state of the union a few weeks later he can maybe have somebody sitting next to his life in the gallery.
To tell their story but is that effective anymore.
I think they're gonna try and initially you know try these anecdotes -- main thing is to that when -- talking about.
At least in the first year a hundred dollars 1% of this I mean that's not a lot of money especially if premiums are let's say two to 500 dollars a month.
A lot of people -- -- will especially if you're young and healthy.
Why -- -- need to spend more money I'll have the federal government if they find me come after me for a hundred bucks and my last question since we have one minute left.
This these penalties are gonna start going into effect about eleven months before the mid term elections.
That's that's going to be trouble especially -- They're going to be IRS and there's a lot of virus personnel who are working on this because they are the agency to task of itself.
How this plays out I don't think -- -- a lot of press releases from the IRS saying yeah we went to sell its us out so we contacted silencer saying you need to sign up it just it's just not good politics for them.
-- -- and I think quietly try to do it Republicans are going to be especially in house would have.
Oversight authority can email us.
And I did see it during the video music awards they had like Katy Perry between modeling you know this is coming.
Does that matter because most of her followers you know the White House and in the White House we did back in her.
From the president's official account Rorer which is named for new song.
I mean does that matter most of her followers probably.
Are well 126.
They are gonna have to do a lot of -- -- -- -- -- -- -- the last next couple.
Months is that -- we've seen Obama's patient -- with the NBA the NFL trying to get.
Young men specifically they're trying to make -- -- -- -- say they said no NBA -- global more willing.
Does it matter maybe a little bit they're trying everything making -- they have to get these young people into the health costs.
This shows book ended with Bob Cusack thank you very much they -- and stuff about everything.
A very much for joining me today Peter DC -- DC and for Chris -- Walt.
Tomorrow Mike Emanuel will host and now a word.
No I think -- has to be a debate on whether this is in the strategic interest.
The United States it shouldn't be a -- spasm as the reaction to a chemical weapons attack.
That's not why you do you go to war you go to war if it will be important for our security ultimately neither religion or --
