tv Lou Dobbs Tonight FOX Business October 12, 2016 11:00pm-12:01am EDT
i promise. join us tomorrow. we hope you will join us. charles: i want to find out what your ultimate goal is, but we are out of time. i appreciate you coming on the show. lou: good evening. the clinton campaign is reeling from more controversy tonight. critics calling for the resignation of communications director jennifer palmieri. the issue, a leaked email exchange from 2011 when center for american progress senior fellow john halpin mocked media moguls for raising their children catholic. he wrote it's an amazing bastardization of the faith.
palmieri was asked about the controversy, but she tried to claim her own catholicism while shifting the blame to russia. >> i'm a catholic. i don't recognize that email that we saw. we are not going to fact check the emails that were stolen. hacked by russia in an effort -- lou: the clinton campaign has no evidence russia is behind the hack of podesta's emails. but they will try anything to change the direction of what is media focus now slowly becoming media focus. on this broadcast we won't
permit that. peter schweizer, and ed rollins. there is a lot to discuss, including donald trump denouncing house speaker paul ryan for betraying the party's voters and the not knee himself. trump says there is something sinister about it all. >> wouldn't you think that paul ryan would say, good going? in front of just about the largest audience for a second night debate in the history of the country. you think they would say great going, don, let's go, let's beat this crook. let's beat her. we have got to stop her. no, he doesn't do that. there is a whole deal going on. we are going to figure it out. i always figure things out. but there is a whole sinister deal going on. lou: sinister.
and some of our favorite political analysts join us. tony sayegh and mercedes schlapp. our top story, 1,200 more wikileaks emails. many of them revealing hillary clinton's collusion with the mainstream media, the "new york times" and permitting the clinton campaign to pick and choose what parts of an interview with clinton would be used in an article. reporter mark liebowit scrks emailed trying to lobby for a batch of quotes. these exchanges were prit interesting. would love the option to wrote. a "washington post" reporter giving john podesta advance that she was withholding information
about his links to the mega donor. top clinton aide huma abedin revealing clinton's press strategy writing in an email to podesta and general palmieri. can we survive not answering questions at these events? the democratic party essentially admits clinton's voters are ignorant. i quote, she doesn't want the people knowing about her relationships on wall street. she wants to achieve consistency, and the best way to
do that is to keep the people ignorant. i believe for 270 days she was imminently successful. 270 days without a press conference. the mainstream liberal media has ignored our next guest who has detailed the corruption of the peter schweizer, executive producer of the "clinton cash" film bailtsd on his best-selling book. i'll bet never in your wildest dreams did you expect three document leaks from wikileaks in a five-day period. >> you are right. no, it's very surreal. because of course when clinton cash came out as a book there
will be was a media cam paint clintons embraced. we had sense of what was going on. but now with the podesta emails we know what that strategy was. you talk about the collaborative efforts with the media. the emails reveal it was clear. they said we have to find a sympathetic host, that would be george receive open louse. be -- george stephanopoulos. there was an email where they say we got him to do our bidding. and that's i think what's so trouble being these media emails. some of the names you kinds of expected. you know which reporters seem to be on the side. lou: nbc news, et cetera. >> but some are pretty surprising that you didn't anticipate to have this cozy relationship. we are not talking about just sort of being collegial. we are talking about sharing information.
lou: what surprised you most? >> i think number one, we are going to dean interview but we'll let you decide what's going to happen. number two, the bureau chief of the "washington post" say we are running this story on lobbying but we won't caulk about this case involving you. there is only a single line where we are discussing you. come on, you are supposed to speak truth to power. that's bowing before the throne. lou: it is so many things. peter, this is -- you wrote extensively about haiti in the most recent dumps we learn from the days following the earthquake in haiti that killed 200,000. requests from individuals identified as friends of bill's were given priority and shuttled off to the mainstream bureaucracy and they were given primacy amongst those dealing
with the aftermath through the clinton foundation. and the state department run by mrs. clinton. >> you are right. think about it. if you think there its anything that's not going to be political or crony, you would think it would be reconstruction after an earthquake. but the emails show sentencively. abc news did a three-part investigation on this. showed email exchanges, contractors getting access in haiti. being able to do projects. the emails were. this person being an f.o.b., as in friends of bill's. you got access and contracts. if you were not, you did not. the second biggest revelation, cheryl mills, the chief of staff clinton confident got $400,000 in taxpayer money to build a
factory in haiti for a south korean factory. chief executive of that company turns around and invests in a private company she is building called black ivy. lou: there is corruption documented by yourself and others now. and wikileaks is providing -- and i would like to hear your judgment on this -- wikileaks seems to be the most energized and effective and responsible agency and outlet that is respecting the traditional american right to know. frustrate bid this administration, the clinton cartel, whatever you want to call it. the mainstream media that will not maintain anything resembling an adversarial relationship with power. to me at this very moment it looks to me like the public's
right to know has been utterly crushed. >> look, here is the way i view it. i think you are exactly right. are we concerned about hacking? absolutely. and law enforcement needs to do their job. lou: i am no longer one of those concerned about hacking. i want the american people to no everything they can about any candidate running for president. i want to know what was going on. >> i agree completely. but the point i was making, that's a concern much law enforcement. the news media has never been concerned about how they received information. they always said the information there is, we'll let the american people know. a lot of them now are suddenly concerned, we are not sure this information was obtained in the proper way. that has never been their concern in the past and that's not their role. lou: how political is it for the
clinton campaign to say we think may have been involved with wicky leaks in this hack. they don't not, but they claim that is truth an and it's absolutely not. no intelligence figure or leader that ileader -- that i know of y they know for sure. to say that the information that we are all looking at that's being provided to the american public right now in the midst of this election is somehow less important than the fact of who may have assisted in this acquisition. >> this has been the standard approach of the clintons for 20 years. you can't deal with the message and the truth, you attack the messenger. the messenger is wikileaks so they will attack messenger. they did the same thing with me. they didn't want to engage in the details.
john podesta is getting emails from people saying these are legitimate issues and concerns. their standard approach is to attack the messenger and ignore the message and they are trying to do it with wikileaks. lou: donald trump talking border security at a rally in florida. he blasted mexican drug cartels that have been allowed to operate with impunity because of shared open border policies. >> we'll stop the drugs from pouring into our country. think of your kid and grandkids. we are going to stop it. and moment of it's coming pack the southern border. but i have a message for the drug dealers, the gang members and the criminal cartels. your days are numbered. lou: think about that. when have you ever heard those word from an american president.
from an american attorney general. you have not heard this to words because they haven't had the guts to say it. donald trump just did. by the way, about 1.6 million of pound of drugs are seized on our border were mexico each year. the majority of methamphetamines, marijuana, cocaine and heroin that comes into this country crosses that border and somehow makes it in without being in any way impede. mexican and central american gangs have also found operating -- have been found operating in 200 of our cities and are contributing mightily to the rising murder rate in this country. extraordinary. the courage of donald trump in uttering those word has not been matched. think of this, by a single president in the course of the last half century. we are coming right back. much more, stay with us.
to me this presidential election looks like it could be a darwinian moment in our political history. trump says there couldn't and clearer choice for president. >> this election will determine whether we remain a free country or a corrupt banana republic. lou: how will voters vote? will they accept four more years of the bungling barack obama and clinton cartel. the shackles are off. it's trump's people to shine with or without cowardly gop elites. we'll talk about trump's battle against the establishment, the mainstream media and of course hillary clinton. a lot more coming up next. ststststst what is success? is it a professor who never stops being a student? is it a caregiver determined to take care of her own?
overwhelming and complicated. that's why at cancer treatment centers of america every patient gets their own care manager to coordinate every aspect of their care. the care manager is making sure everything is flowing well so the patient can continue to get their treatment. we are the link between the patient and the doctor. the care manager coordinates all of the patient's appointments, scans, chemotherapy... we can do paperwork or contact their employers or set them up with home health. that's what brings most people into nursing; you get to connect with people. that's what i love about being a care manager. meet the care managers at ctca. my name is collette... lindsey jodi stacy our nurse care managers are with you every step of the way so
registered to vote between 2008 and 2012. also in virginia the f.b.i. looking into 20 cases of voter applications using the names of dead people. that's right. dead people registering in virginia, and the number is likely much higher than that in the neighborhood of 100 or so. illegal voters also uncovered in philadelphia. 400 illegal immigrants voting in elections. and voter fraud in colorado concerning a dead voter. there have been 7 cases involving dead voters. dead voters are causing trouble in colorado between 2009 and 2015. joining us now, former reagan white house political director, republican strategist, fox news contributor. ed rollins. the supreme court said there is not a problem here. there just hasn't been enough
voter fraud to have integrity in our registration. >> the interesting thing as you put those states up there. when indiana first came up, you think indiana is not a place -- indiana is a close race that basically six or seven years ago voted the other way and switched back. it will probably be close again. philadelphia has a big impact on pennsylvania. colorado is a swing state. what i'm impressed by is that they have a big master plan where they need to add a few thousand votes and this -- lou: do republicans have a master plan of what to do about it? donald trump has been saying to the so-called professional politicians, the rnc, this deal is rigged. >> the bottom line is there is a lot of truth to that. at the end of the day, i said on this show, i talked about it's times, we can't run campaigns from washington, d.c.
we have to run campaigns where the people are. if anybody wants to be an operative in politics, you go to d.c. and work for the rnc and the congressional committees, so you don't know what's going on out there. lou: do the states know what's going on? the governor pence is talking about this investigation. we are closing with under four weeks to a presidential election. and people are talking about -- >> we don't know what voter fraud is. you will see it when it comes close. and in this election i think there will and lot of it. lou: what is the republican party doing by the? can the republican party be more screwed up than it is. >> i don't think so. they have had a troubled year and they will have a troubled election. lou: they blew 2008 and 2012.
they have gone the into a jamestown ritual where they want to commit the party to political suicide. this is madness what paul ryan and rnc chairman reince priebus is letting him do. he's saying we are going to destroy this candidate and give this election to one of the most -- to me, incredible candidates i have seen in hillary clinton, and the devil be damned. because he wants to have a political opportunity. >> what he wants is 218-plus republicans so he can control that level of the government. i have been with the white house and the congressional committee. the republicans in the coverage -- >> the fact of the matter is we have a bunch of fools putting up with the biggest fool i have ever seen in the speaker's chair and that's quite saying something. >> to those members out there, they are all running their own
thing. they lived for 8 years with obama. but first and foremost it's taking care of them. lou: donald trump just said to the cartel, their days are numbered. we haven't had a president or attorney general with that kind of guts. we are putting up with rank public corruption on the part of the democratic nominee. >> it's more than rank. if you look at these wikileaks, they have a established political system that works 24 hours a dane side government. they had a master plan to protect the mother ship which is hillary and you see it day in and day out. lou: the national media is compliant and complicit. >> we want to be in your good grailss. so clear the the quotes. lou: the american people should tell the bunch to go to hell. they have the opportunity.
we'll see what kind of muster they have got. ed rollins, thank you for being here. be sure to vote in our poll tonight. what matters more. who leaked the clinton emails and what's in them. or who won, who helped them get there. which is more important to you. cast your vote on twitter at lou dobbs and follow me on twitter. follow me on instagram on "lou dobbs tonight." the dow up 16 points, the nasdaq down 18 points. light trading. wells fargo chairman-ce sorks john stumpf stepping down. he's under fire for a scandal in which bank employees opened 2 million fraudulent customer accounts without customer knowledge. 5,000 employees were fired. a reminder to listen to my reports three times a day coast
to coast on the sail tell radio network. first it was hillary clinton calling trump supporters a basket of deplorables. bill clinton calling the base rednecks. >> donald trump's base is what i grew up in. i'm basically your standard redneck. lou: just how far does the clinton's disdain for americans go? i will have a few thoughts straight ahead. impressive linda. it seems age isn't slowing you down. but your immune system weakens as you get older increasing the risk for me, the shingles virus.
i've been lurking inside you since you had chickenpox. i could surface anytime as a painful, blistering rash. one in three people get me in their lifetime, linda. will it be you? and that's why linda got me zostavax, a single shot vaccine. i'm working to boost linda's immune system to help protect her against you, shingles. zostavax is a vaccine used to prevent shingles in adults fifty years of age and older. zostavax does not protect everyone and cannot be used to treat shingles or the nerve pain that may follow it. you should not get zostavax if you are allergic to gelatin or neomycin, have a weakened immune system or take high doses of steroids are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. the most common side effects include redness, pain, itching, swelling, hard lump warmth or bruising at the injection site and headache. it's important to talk to your doctor about what situations you may need to avoid since zostavax contains a weakened chickenpox virus. remember one in three people get shingles in their lifetime, will it be you? talk you to your doctor or pharmacist about me,
every on-time arrival is backed by thousands of od employees, ...who make sure the millions of products we ship arrive without damages. because od employees treat customer service... ...like our most important delivery. od. helping the world keep promises. lou: a few thoughts on hillary's campaign of hypocrisy. wikileaks revealing she told bankers she was far removed from the problems of the middle class and she of course is right. but the children tons are
removed from the middle class and all americans. the wikileaks emails makes it clear she views them all with disdane. her campaign mocked conservative catholics and evangelicals. the religious bigotry prompted protests and trump's demands she hold her staff accountable. bill clinton said trump's base is made up of quote what i grew up in, your standard redneck. so far no word of apology or passing regret by the president. it was only last month mrs. clinton said you could put half of trump supporters into a basket of deplorables. an audio recording of the democratic nominee revealed she referred to bernie sanders support percent as basement
dwellers. bernie didn't mind, it seemed. he went to his lake house, thought about it and immediately started campaigning for hillary. that's the democratic way, right? donald trump responded to the clinton campaigns assault on just about everyone but the elites of the clinton cartel and her donors. >> these emails are just the latest evidence of the hatred that the clinton campaign has for everyday faithful americans. crooked hillary thinks that you, all of you, are deplorable and totally irredeemable. i call you hard working american patriots, and together we are going to save this country. lou: save the country, make america great again, put america first. donald trump arrived at his time in history.
as for our country's sake, not at moment too soon. our quotation of the evening, all of you expecting a home run here, and wondering about the timing and when the opportunity will present itself. yogi berra had this to say about timing. you don't have to swing hard to hit a home run. if you have got the timing, it will go. we'll be looking closely for the right time in that home run. we are coming right back. trump slams come and the f.b.i. for their failure to prosecute hillary and the rest of the clinton cartel. >> there has never been a time like this in our country. i'm so disappointed in congress, to allow a thing like this to go. this is crime at the highest level. >> how much longer can clinton rationalize her lies and cheating and crooked ways?

mercedes, i know you were on the call this morning, you and matt both. i would like to show you what your husband and our audience, what he had written as chairman of the american conservative union. he said this. hillary clinton tells us she likes to go high, but she and her campaign are as low as a snake's belly. if mrs. clinton does not fire these advisers immediately she'll have no moral authority on the issue of prejudice in our society. i just want to compliment matt for using a little of the language i'm comfortable with. a snake's belly. when you can work that if you are doing good. we are not doing good while holding her accountable.
the campaign is basically hunkering down. >> it's amazing. when i read these wikileaks emails, i was personally offend as a conservative catholic that they would call my belief backward and talk about the bastardization of our faith. you have the catholic alliance for the common good, a soros-funded group that their goal is to go into the church and steer catholics away from their faith. lou: is there anything george soros isn't trying to tear to pieces? >> you have hillary clinton standing up there saying we are stronger together. i'm so tolerant of all americans. all i'm reading is that when it's off the camera and her main staff -- her calm directors and high-powered individuals are
pushing this leftist agenda, if catholics and christians do not wake up, they will dominate and tell us what we can do in our catholic and christian schools. when there is a supreme court liberal pick, i don't want to hear it from catholics and christians who didn't vote for donald trump that our hands are tied. >> mercedes is right it's a clarion call for catholics all over this country, having seen the emails that shoat disdain the liberal left, the elite, the political class has for organized religion, but particularly those who have deep-held belief and faith like conservative catholics and evangelicals. hillary clinton was invited to the most important catholic dinner in the country. if she doesn't fire jen palmieri, i think they should rescind that invitation.
lou: good for both of you. let's come to reality here. debbie wasserman-schultz was fired from the dnc because she was in collusion and defrauded a candidate for president by the name of senator bernie sanders and betrayed all of his followers, and what happened? she was fired. and what campaign does she chair now? she'she's chairing the campaignr hillary. >> what upsets me is the fact that the democrats stick together. bernie sanders has been betrayed by the hillary campaign. republicans, we eat each other alive. lou: you guys have a fiction that you carry around that some of you are conservatives. the fact of the matter is there is a small group of real conservatives in this gop. and the rest are like paul ryan.
he wants to be a democrat because he doesn't have the guts. you guys put up with people like paul ryan and mitch mcconnell. if you guys don't started express something concern about the supporters, the voters who support donald trump, you guys have turned your party has turned on the nominee, millions of people have awe supported him, and what we are watching is an orgy of immense proportions celebrating the death of any kind of democratic process in the republican party. in point of fact, in the nation. because you reduced this two-party system to one. the republicans are a bunch of chumps it seems to me. >> there are high-level defections, paul ryan being so outspoke this past weekend was not helpful. but you see some of that coming
back. senator fischer from nebraska is endorsing him again. senator thune is now back supporting donald trump. lou: john mccain who asked donald trump for his endorsement and he gives the. at the first sign of gunfire mccain -- these are not principled people. >> the populist movement started by donald trump, if you believe it's true, and i believe it is true. that's what's going to get donald trump elected president. >> but you need the unity of the party to help propel donald trump. i finds that the fact that these considerations between the republican leadership and donald trump should have been held in private. lou: i have got to ask to you wrap up because we are way over. >> all i'm saying is it's unfortunate.
i'm very disappointed in the gop not rallying around donald trump. you make me very depressed, lou. you are making me depressed. lou: you shouldn't be depressed by truth. reality is the supports and voters watching and listening to you guys tonight are the ones who will decide who is going to become president. despite the madness of the silly party on the -- >> 28 days for the rnc to do the right thing. take care. >> roll 9 video. a new way to explore a shipwreck. watch a daredevil punch 50 feet towards a beached ship. this is not a good idea. this is a thrill seeker. this is a crazy person. maneuvers and lands on target
just to the side of the wreck. do you suppose he's a republican? just curious. safe landing. happy ending. the clinton campaign embroiled in scandal but the national media doesn't seem to care. the clintons are trying to shift the focus to russia. no proof, but no problem. no proof, but no problem. kt mcfarland joins me next.
lou: joining me, former national security an list, kt mcfarland. lementsd start with vladimir putin who says he in no way is interests nearing any way with this election. do you believe him for a moment? >> no, i don't believe him and i don't believe there is any reason to believe him. but what bothers me weather administration, the u.s. administration is when hillary clinton says there is nothing to see here, move along. the problem is vladimir putin. what are they going to do about it.
if putin is as the administration and hillary clinton says, what are we going to do about the fact that he's hacking into the american political environment. the russians or the military hack into the voting system. lou: they didn't have the guts to say who hacked into the office of personnel management. present and past employees of the government. they didn't have the guts to respond when china comes in and walks through like it's a vineyard picking grapes. this is a passive administration. the democrat kick party is obviously corrupt. they are colluding in a presidential campaign among the white house, the justice department and the campaign itself. my god, and we are supposed to worry about russia helping wikileaks which seems to be the only agency committed to the
american public's right to know, right? >> yeah. international relations is a shark tank. >> you mean they don't just kiss each other on the cheeks? >> they are sharks. they smell blood in the water. they smell a passive lame duck president, no drama obama. they know they can do whatever they want the next couple months and face no consequence whatsoever. lou: i'm reminded about the old song about poker. if you look around the table and you don't see the chump, youg better get up because you are it. i'm at a loss to understand what this administration is doing, three our ships dispatched because of rockets fired against our ship. missiles fired by houthi rebels
in yemen. the president said we'll decide on an appropriate response. good lord, what are we doing here? >> president obama, secretary clinton and second kerry bet the ranch. they gave iran everything they wanted. they gave them sanctions relief and money and a path to nuclear weapons. in exchange they thought they were buying iran's friendship. what have they got snn they have iran that takes american sailors prisoner and american citizens hostage. now iranians proxies which are in effect an act of war against the united states. they have fired on i.s. warships. we -- on u.s. -- warships. lou: kt, we thank you so as
much. let's pray that is doesn't. donald trump vows to rebuild our military to take care of our veterans. >> we are going to take care of our great veterans. our veterans have been horribly treated. when it comes to keeping america safe, i believe in three very important words, peace through strength. lou: the widow of american sniper chris kyle weighs in on who would be the next commander-in-chief. commander-in-chief. stay with us.

lou: in our online poll last night we asked if you believe the american voters have the energy to throw the bums out and elect donald trump. 83% of you say yes. if we get close to that number in reality we'll have a trump administration. joining us tonight, widow of american sniper chris kyle. it's great to have you with us. let's start with his collision between the clinton administration, the clinton
campaign, our cartel, whatever want to call it, that's been revealed by wikileaks and the trump organization, and donald trump. who do you think is winning in the hearts and minds of the american people? >> it's a difficult one. it depends on if you trust the polls or not. lou: i don't, by the way. >> it's difficult. there is so much slinging of mud right now that people want to defend -- this not have much trust, so they can say that's not true. i talk to friend of mine that are left leaning and right leaning, they say that wasn't true, that's exaggerated. we have that luxury to say we don't believe it. but hearts and minds, they are doing a good job of making trump look like a clown internationally and here. but there are people who want to dig deep and say you are not going to tell me what to think. lou: how do you think he did in
the debate? >> he did fine. lou: i thought he won it. and did so by a considerable margin. now we are looking at a contest that is day by day paul ryan, speaker of the house wants to destroy this candidates i. this -- destroy his candidacy. and the congress -- he told them to do their thing. do what's best for them. this is a leader? the corruption, the public corruption of the clinton cartel and campaign. and frankly the republican party that's at war with itself. >> this is where i have a problem. because the democrats i think it's disingenuous for them to get up and support hillary clinton. i don't buy it. they didn't support her then so
i think it's all an act. i get that it's good for the party to come together. but at the same time i think we need to allow people to stick by their principles and say i decided this is not a man of character that it want in the party. i know it hurts the party. i get that. lou: who are you going to vote for? >> i can't vote for hillary. i either don't vote or i vote my ideology of lower taxes that donald supports. lou: good to have you here. come back soon. a quick apology to my friend byron york whom i misheard. he commented it didn't seem to be a good idea for trump to attack republican leadership. i thought he said it was unfair. i was mistaken and i apologize to byron and you. i will never make another mistake.
i promise. join us tomorrow. we hope you will join us. good night from new york. kennedy: tonight donald trump is taking the political world by the horns. but will the battle with his own party help or hurt his chances with the white house. gary johnson is oh so close to vaulting libertarians. all he needs is to win 5% of the electorate. but is that a good thing for the party's future? culinary king guy fieri is here and he's bringing bottles of his new wine. grab a glass and cut loose.
