7:11 pm
7:12 pm
7:13 pm
7:14 pm
lou: turning to a new threat that has to be a joke onea high alert confirmed five more cases of middle eastfive respiratory syndrome. the coronavirus according to the wa joe the t2 like viruses a threat to the entire world. 27 cases have resulted in 49 deaths. joining us to give us aes perspective and understanding of the dead the virus we have dr. siegel. i have to say i have never heard of a virus that has been better if they and a 50% death rate. this is stunning. what is happening? >> let me walk you thru this
7:15 pm
we need to take thisinly seriously any time a new virus emerges in redondo would it will be. the initial virus does have a high def rate but here is the problem but margaret qian is not shy head of the who said it could kill up to 90 million and she says it every time there is any emerging market. she did it with sars but here's something interesting se in 2003 it affected 7,000 people and kill killed 700 when it first version was to present death rates and everybody panicked.e the city of toronto wasnto cordoned off and a just and $30 million keeping people from traveling and
7:16 pm
sequestering but that is the real story. it is the fear and the panicvery everybody says this could be ano another t2 but that was not as bad as people fought to.nt why do i talk about that? is the same kind of virus. a coronavirus. guess what else? the common cold. lou: when i look at the symptoms talking about of cold i think there would bemp hard to identify. the who is telling us there are 49 cases. we are planet of over 7 billion people we know how many died in this is the sound right to me. what is going on? >> exactly.
7:17 pm
it is too early to say what you say because we don't even know what the attack rate is. for every person that gets one, how many others? and until we see is spreading we cannot. of the new viruses are not as deadly as they spread because they don't affect a lot of people. but every year there is one in the virus is the year. i am not dismissing it. the we have the scientisteeds but we need a mixed message of information we're lookingess into it, a steadying itsigur brief even publish the dnad but it is not clear this will be a world wide support lou: with the etf panic with
7:18 pm
the world would do if it did panic but science is now allid identifying the virus. i am curious of the reporting at the abnormallyh high rate mutating to the point it is absolutely resistant to the anti-viral smith. put that in context. >> first of all, everybody loves the word mutated because it is a fear word the all viruses mutate but the problem is most mutate or a change in ways that c make them less harmful not more harmful.irus but now in terms of treatment the antiviral stuccowork. if they did we would have a cure for the common coldes.
7:19 pm
which is the coronavirus. the have no treatment but most of the time they don't spend -- spread like wildfire it is worth watching it in studying it. i don't see a vaccine coming because you don't have at it vaccine for the common cold. lou: that is a wonderful point.po we know your motivation which is true stand realitynd to share as best you can can, your knowledge.uldn wouldn't it be nice to bear that smart?t.'re [laughter] >> the nsa leaker. hero or trader? people are making up they're minds early and it depends mak on who you ask. some strange political bedfellows in the "chalk talk"
7:20 pm
7:21 pm
7:22 pm
♪ you know, we lou: we really don't know very much at all about 29 year-old that leaker edward snowden of the nsa. we have heard him described as a hero, a trader, a
7:23 pm
whistle-blower, public service, a fugitive, criminal even as some call him a bad boyfriend becker the you can tell where someone stands by the the letter following there name in washington d.c. but this is not been the case for snowden. the first calling him a traitor. first by the speaker of the house, boehner can now to a flat out he is a traitor for showing our enemies what our capabilities are in surveillance for cody is a republican but as senator feinstein she shares his view in says he committed ane act of treasonna.mitt the same goes for homeland security committee member and former chairman peter king who says snowden is a danger to the nation and president obama, here he is
7:24 pm
2013 he has now waited but the justice department is preparing criminal chargesiden and friday the president defended the nsa surveillance program to save and make a difference in preventing terrorist attacks in this country and america.d now the case to label snowden and his actions heroic, that has happened and we have clan back in michael more could not be more opposite its.eck but typically quebec said he has the earmarks of a real hero and more and call him the hero of the year. i have to sit here and watch the thank you again for leaving me my chalkboard. we want to thank you no matter your view.
7:25 pm
i want to say this again, as senators might leak and al franken, they have come together to say they are kind of behind this they have not attached to label but theyhe are backing legislation to require our government to be more transparent. think about they want to force theo justice department do declassify court opinions operating under the foreign intelligence surveillance ac at under the fisa court that will not pass but it is worse drafting to see the i'd pairing of senators frank in a and lee for the look of the difference between 2007 and president obama 2013 to think this job
7:26 pm
does not carry a little way to and the burden?ndid then candidates accuse the bush administration to put forward a false choice between national security and our civil liberties than he was very fired up about it but it is a safe bet that president obama would not make the same argument because he is as cautious as ar a very real choice between national security and civil liberties for right now is still very much a question mark. >> of a disgrace veterans forced to wait months ina years for their benefits.itler congressman miller joins us tonight with his solution. ...
7:27 pm
it appears our journey has come to a delightful end. then i better use the capital one purchase eraser to redeem my ventureiles for this trip. purchase eraser? it's the easy way to erase any recent travel expense. i just pick a charge, like my flight with a few taps, it's taken care of. impressive baldwin. do it work for hotels? absolutely thank goodness. mrs. villain and i are planning our... you scare me. and i like it. let's go what's in your wallet?

7:31 pm
we have to figure out what the problem is and i want to help i dylan to darr from the adversarial position but the numbers keep rising and veterans keep waiting and they keep dying before they get their benefits. lou: is simply an outrageous thank you for doing what youhi can i know ms. collins from new york, they won general shares shacky fired. >> he is an honorable thegent gentleman but the ice is i getting very sick and.ry, i have already called for the undersecretary of benefits to resign the secretary said he will not make that happen so we will work within the constructo that we have to make sure they have every dollar or personal technology available. it is not a matter to getat t what they ask for because for the last decade the
7:32 pm
department of veteranss affairs have got everything %-it is just as systematicy issue. lou: hundreds of files. >> all the office is to go to you will see stacks and stacks very little is digitized but when youav separatee from the department of defense to become a veteran they give you a paper trail you need apape health record that follows you. i have been told was the former secretary has suggested and i have not talked to jim about this, hs that he has an idea to give them a chance to get it out and figure it out later.
7:33 pm
>> i am great respect for secretary nicholson but thed virginia is to be terrible to go back to collect insurance payments for they have billions of dollarsut that are outstanding by to see a partial payment in advance of some type. that may be one of the only ways to get over the hill but thely problem with all ofthe this with the disabilityt backlog of the overtime if they don't fix the system it doesn't matter how manythe people they've flooded to make up the backlog the down in the left out the man that tha is responsible that is the president of the united states. here is one man who is not taken the lead and we

7:47 pm
spell prosperity for a longfor time for the bill of the country.t >> if the businesses that have been in the process of moving it will take longer but all people want is the opportunity to earn a better life. they want to chop why is it job creation a big deal? the half a million jobs have been created since the credit crisis. old school economic theory of they will lead thele economy for of the coast is not working anymore. lou: taxes are raising astronomically also looking at different chefs that will be important but you predict the smart money will be relocating. i think some interior states like illinois at guinness som
7:48 pm
mark many applause. >> they just raise taxes by two-thirds and nobody will go there it is difficult to get anything done and if you are smart you would understand the liabilities you take on as a taxpayer that means they will leave and you for more tax dollars if you move there is pretty threatening. not only do your taxes go up but when the state is in bad shape many for important things like education or roads where public safety goes the people pay more and get less and there is a money to train people so unemployment stays high. >> has become chronic and without question without policy response or aship leadership response. it is all talk and no action
7:49 pm
>> but there is not an as no discussion of prosperity that is not just isolated areas but when do we start to see the return? is a new leaders in business and washington? >> you already see it in the state's 2008 through 2011 the last data available texas grew over 8%. states like louisiana grew 16% and north dakota 26%. c california was at 3% florida , arizona even nevadaev were less than that so it is really happening. h the state setter not doing the right thing toe california, new jersey and illinois don't wake up and pay attention they will be rate -- we behind it is dangerous. sad is sad the state's then need

lincoln himself and they've been away and he said they should stick around to see the shooting. but teddy roosevelt helped to create the rifle that our trips -- troops are still easy for a version of today andto kennedy was involved to decipher the m-16 so it is a fascinating connection. lou: also the plan with the m14 and the rifle it is such a magnificent part and many are gun buffs.stor >> and the m-1 saved the world because my father and others had that by their size -- by their sides in world war ii it is better than the chinese and the

german shoulder rifle that counts for history and saving american lives but toes. move our history forward to put food on the tablerd. expanding the country and we know about the crime quite qui well but we forgot about the connection of the military history. >> we talk about the guns that won the west is a terrific idea of brilliantly executed you have another big winner and i am sure ano chris kyle will be thrilled. >> thank you. lou: the book is an american gun on sale now on bookstores everywhere go to
