clean extension of the patriot about. >> they want you to think that there's a government agent listening in every time you pick up the phone or skype with your grand kids. they want you to think our intelligence community are the bad guys. straight out of the born identity and they want you to think if we weakened our capabilities, the rest of the world would somehow love us more. all these fears are exaggerated and ridiculous. >> as for the trade bill in the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says they will stay in session as long as it takes to pass legislation. democratic senatrç elizabeth warren is not backing downwai from her battle over the transpacific partnership. she released a report yesterday attacking both parties on behalf of labor groups. and in less than 24 hours the

around hillary clinton. a dozen people full time at the state department. >> that's it? >> all they do is read her e-mails. wouldn't you like to see some of those. >> that's a boring job. >> i don't know. there might be juicy stuff. this is juicy. the governor of texas signed a bill banning fracking. they have the sole authority over it. they are saying studies prove it causes earthquakes. >> they have a pretty good point. first of all shouldn't the local community get the right to decide what happens inside its borderings. why should the idiots in the state capitol be deciding it. >> last time i was in texas i felt a tremor. i never felt one at all growing up. it was new to me. >> the oil industry gets what it
wants from the state house in texas, so it's going to be tough. >> we'll see this battle play out. thank you, ellis. what men do 23 times a day that makes them more vain than women. plus a concrete wall clamss onollapses on people. those details next. it comes... here you go. good catch. perfect! alright now for the best part. let's see your pour. ohhh...let's get those in the bowl. these are way too good to waste, right? oh, yea. let's go for it... around the bowl and...
