tv   Varney Company  FOX Business  November 28, 2016 9:00am-12:01pm EST

9:00 am
dagen: who is going to be secretary of state? >> dagen mcdowell. dagen: never in a million years will i ever work in government. that said, morgan, anthony, guess who is up? mr. stuart varney. stuart: that's an introduction and deeply appreciated. dagen: you're welcome. stuart: reversal, she was against it before she was for it. and black friday, bricks and mortar and the online. the castro saga out on the football field. the left is challenging the election trying to undermine trump presidency. hillary clinton will join the recount in three states, a complete reversal for her. trump is not happy, she conceded. nothing will change.
9:01 am
black friday a bust for the discounters, sales were huge, but down. in contrast, on-line sales hit a record. we're rapidly becoming amazon nation. then the death of fide darling of the left. wait until you hear the story of colin kaepernick, stackled by a castro-- >> and have we got a show for you, "varney & company" is about to begin. stuart: well, it will be a slightly lower open for the dow jones industrial average. it will stay right there and look at that. the russell 2000, that is up more than 12% since election day.
9:02 am
it's gone up in each of the last 15 trading sessions. this represents smaller companies who do their business largely in america. that, what you're looking at, is the trump rally. don't forget, oil, opec meets wednesday, the saudis backed out of a meeting with russia, one analyst said that oil could head to 30 bucks if a deal is not reached. it's up today, 46.93. and attention shoppers, today is cyber monday, i hate that expression bus we've got to use it. here is the stock price of amazon, it's going to be done despite vigorous on-line selling. about 70 or $80 away from the all-time high. fedex are going to be delivering a lot of this on-line bonanza, virtually unchanged at least at the open. ups, we have the ceo about 40 minutes from now, the heat is on them, they have to perform this christmas. the ceo at 9:45. all right, to the big story, please, hillary clinton's
9:03 am
campaign, now jumping on board with jill stein's recount effort in wisconsin, michigan, and pennsylvania. look who is with us on a monday morning to start the show. gentlem yes, the man himself, judge andrew napolitano. where do we start on this one? >> legally she can do it, but-- >> yes. >> it's going nowhere. >> so this is not a recount mandated by law because the difference between the votes is far greater than that minimal amount, which is one quarter of 1% in the case of wisconsin in which would be mandated by law and paid for by the statement any candidate on the ballot can ask for a recount if they can pay for it and jill stein is paying for it. mrs. clinton joining it is a head scratcher. who knows why she's doing that. there is a little bit of concern here, not that the gap could be narrow, there's 25,000 votes they'd have to find were made up for, or calculated erroneously.
9:04 am
here is the problem, if wisconsin does not complete its recount by december 13th, it may lose its right to cast 10 electoral votes. donald trump will still be elected president of the united states, but he will not have those ten votes. i don't know if there's a method to her madness. they don't go to hillary clinton they just aren't cast. stuart: look, i think it's designed to undermine the legitimacy of the trump presidency. >> didn't we hear a very articulate or ration from mrs. clinton herself about dangers of undermining the results of the election. if the third debate. what's wrong with you, why would you want to undermine the legitimacy or appears to. stuart: let's go back to jill stein, she's alleges that russians, a foreign intelligence service meddled
9:05 am
with the election and she has no proof, but that's a dynamite charge she's levelling. >> it is a dynamite charge. it may implicate the fbi, which as you may recall, did some investigation at the request of the president, and the justice department in late october and early november, we don't know what the results of that was. here is the law. the law does not guarantee perfect elections, guarantees basically fair elections, that the person declared the winner in fact won. whether he won by 21,000 votes or 25,000 votes or 19,000 votes, votes is of no moment to the law. stuart: i see it as mischief making by hillary clinton undermining the legitimacy of the presidency and jill stein raising money, getting 7 million and only needs 2 million. >> i think you're right and the president-elect said the staple thing.
9:06 am
and this is the green party on the ballot in most states. stuart: judge, we'll see you back in an hour and a half. thank you, judge. let me get to that sound bite from hillary clinton. what she said before the election about challenging election results. roll that tape. >> that's horrifying. you know, every time donald thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims everything is rigged. that's not the way the democracy works, we've been around 240 years, we've had free and fair elections. we've accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election. stuart: ooh, the value of videotape when you need it. she said you should accept the outcome before the election. now, president-elect incoming chief of staff responded on fox news sunday. watch this.
9:07 am
>> it was their team that cut a deal with our team when it said the ap called the race they would call it in 15 minutes and concede, which they did. it's a total and hypocritical joke that the group of people that thought they were nervous about president-elect trump not conceding are the people that are conducting recounts in states where we won by over 68,000 votes. stuart: i want to know what really is going on here with the clinton camp. i said that she's meddling with this undermining the legitimacy of the clinton-- presidency. >> she's placating the left. everybody knows an impossible dynamic. in pennsylvania itself 70,000 vote margin. with florida, bush and gore, 547, you'd want it recount. at this time it keeps herrell vapt. there's an election not for
9:08 am
2020, but for mayor of new york. stuart: whoa, whoa, you chucked that in the middle of the ring right there. you think she's angling to be the next mayor of new york city, is that your implication? >> she's not going quietly into this dark night. she likes influence. there's been a decline in donations to the foundation. this is a woman who thought she was entitled to this. she was strongest clearly in california and new york, if there's anyplace where she could go in and win a local or state-wide election, new york she feels would have more influence. keep in mind, this is not about changing the election. this is about what the democrats do. they manipulate people's emotions. they promise things that are impossible and then they steal your money. this is why they lost the election on november 8th and this is what this is all about, once again. stuart: i can't get past your speculation, i think that's what it is. >> we'll see. stuart: that she wants to run for mayor of new york city. now, look, do you have a source that says this or is this-- >> it was a discussion amongst people who would know or at least know that the democrats
9:09 am
and know her-- >> she was first lady, a senator from the great state of new york and she would become the mayor of new york city? >> look, she's never really won a hard fought election. her election to the senate was with rick lazio after mayor guiliani dropped out. this is a woman that's not been challenged directly. i think she wants to be able to do that. becoming mayor of new york could be a walk for her, i think. you've got a dynamic with hillary and democrats in general looking for relevancy. what could your leader of the party do to make them relevant again and remember, also, barack obama is the one who told her to concede and when they did concede, it was not hillary, according to reports that made that call. so, she has been resistent this entire time and this is what could-- but ultimately this is a scam. it's about money, it's about relevance and i agree with you,
9:10 am
to sew doubt into the election because that's a bonus for them. stuart: mayor of new york, scratching my head. >> god help new york. stuart: i'll tell you this, more violence in chicago, terrible story, several shooting deaths and dozens injured over the thanksgiving weekend. liz, give me the numbers. liz: 61 shot and nine fatally. the number of people shot triple last year. stuart: this is the whole thanksgiving weekend from wednesday night to sunday night. liz: that's correct. thank you, nine fatally shot. 61 is shootings triple the level last year, comeses a the mayor, rahm emanuel is saying chicago will always be a sanctuary city. let's stay on that for a second. we do not have any information about illegal immigrants committing the crimes there, we don't know it's about chaos in the city of chicago. stuart: nine dead, 61 shot? connell: yeah. stuart: in a weekend? >> in an american city. stuart: in an american city. that's extraordinary. >> a weekend for family. liz: it's like the murder
9:11 am
capital of the united states right now. it's fast bomb -- becoming that. >> if not the world. stuart: and down 50 points, but keep the dow well above 19,000. it's cyber day, looking at on-line shopping. we're looking at well over 3 billion in sales, what's predicted. we're going to take you to an amazon mega warehouse and talking to the ceo of ups later this hour. the heat is on them. the syrian army getting inside aleppo. they say they have captured a large area of the eastern part of the city. essentially, they split the rebel held country it would. russia and iran, they are backing syrian army's campaign. how about this? the failure of socialism in venezuela, rit large. good heavens. citizens escaping the country
9:12 am
to escape starvation. and inflation 700. and the currency is so devalued you need far more crash than you can stuff into a wallet to buy something. we're on it. speaking of socialism. colin kaepernick, a sporter of fidel castro gets booed and tackled by the son of a cuban immigrant. you can't make it up. we'll be back. my dad gave me those shares, you know. he ran that company. i get it. but you know i think you own too much. gotta manage your risk. an honest opinion is how edward jones makes sense of investing.
9:13 am
9:14 am
9:15 am
>> since the death of castro donald trump has been tweeting furiously and he's at it again. ashley what is the latest trump tweet. ashley: if cuba, says mr. trump, is unable to make a better deal for the cuban people, the cuban/american people as a whole i will terminate the deal. he's already laying down the gauntlet. stuart: dare i say that he watches "varney & company"? >> why not?
9:16 am
>> dare i say that. >> everybody does. stuart: oh, thank you. you're back tomorrow. now, i've got to move away from that for a second and talk about sunday afternoon, the 49ers, their quarterback colin kaepernick, outspoken supporter of cuban leader fidel castro. he was seriously booed. ashley: he was. this was in miami and of course, he was the starting quarterback, comes out and let's listen to the boos, if he can, as he was greeted by a lot of the cuban-americans, can you hear that. stuart: oh, yeah. ashley: that's very loud. look, capper neck has been, made statements supporting fidel castro saying he invested a lot in health care and in education while the united states seems to just invest in prison systems. and then look at that final tackle of the game by tito alonzo, the son of a cuban exile, a very, very outspoken
9:17 am
against what fidel castro has done to cuba. and he gets the last tackle on kaepernick, there was bad blood in me knowing what kaepernick had said and as life has it, gets the final take youn -- the final tackle. stuart: and they're not in the playoffs. ashley: and it's worst ever. >> health care is less expensive when you're dead. stuart: you're terrible. and "the washington post," cuben dictator, they used the world, a spiritual beacon. >> gosh. stuart: do they understand the world spiritual. and calling castro the cuban revolutionary who defied the united states. mercedes is with us, a strategist and i believe cuban-american. i want to start, mercedes. you have a personal story about your dad in cuba. tell us, please.
9:18 am
>> i do. my father lived, grew up in cuba, owned several businesses was very successful entrepreneur when fidel castro came into power in 1959 during the revolution. the military and the regime took over my father's businesses, his home. my stood up against the regime and he was thrown into jail for six years and a political prisoner for speaking up against the castro regime. he saw many of his friends die, executed by a firing squad and it was clear that fidel castro and his thugs were very much focused in getting rid of anyone who spoke against the communists and i think my father had a clear vision as to the fact that communism would destroy his homeland and one of the reasons when he did come to the united states, he will always say he is american now first and foremost because he loves this country for embracing him and allowing him to succeed and raise his family here and he's forever grateful
9:19 am
to america, but i have to say when i broke the news to my father on saturday, he did smile, he cried, and there was a sense of relief. there was a sense that someone who has done so much damage to this island, and to the people, is now gone. that doesn't mean it doesn't change things in cuba, still much work to be done obviously, but it is just the death of someone who has been so destructive. stuart: now, we brought the news a few moments ago, the latest trump tweet. he'll probably renegotiate the deal with cuba. i think i'm sure you're laughing at that one. romney, enormous opposition to many republicans putting him in as secretary of state. where do you stand on this? >> i have to say kelly anne conway is right, there has been a grass roots growth of individuals basically saying that they don't want romney in there and i think that after the absolutely critical and i would say mean comments that romney has made of donald
9:20 am
trump, i think it would be very difficult for trump to appoint romney as secretary of statement you need a loyalist in there. you need someone who understands, who stands close, hand in hand, with the president on pushing forward the foreign policy vision. and i just don't think that romney is the right pick for donald trump. stuart: well, i am not an english-american. you are not a cuban-american. we're both americans, i do declare and very happy to be that. >> that's right. stuart: mercedes, all american, thank you for joining us and we'll see you soon. >> thank you, yes. now, here is a story-- . [laughter] >> i don't know why i'm laughing. some hotels in italy have a unique plan to counter the country's extremely low birth rate. they're offering rooms to them if they conceive while guests. we will be back.
9:21 am
9:22 am
9:23 am
speed always wins. especially in my business. with slow internet from the phone company, you can't keep up. you're stuck, watching spinning wheels and progress bars until someone else scoops your story. switch to comcast business. with high-speed internet up to 10 gigabits per second. you wouldn't pick a slow race car. then why settle for slow internet? comcast business. built for speed. built for business.
9:24 am
i've spent my life planting a size-six, non-slip shoe into that door. on this side, i want my customers to relax and enjoy themselves. but these days it's phones before forks. they want wifi out here. but behind that door, i need a private connection for my business. wifi pro from comcast business. public wifi for your customers. private wifi for your business. strong and secure. good for a door. and a network. comcast business. built for security. built for business. >> i want to get back to this tweet we just received from donald trump. if cuba is unwilling to make a better deal for the cuban people, the cuban-american people and the u.s. as a whole, i will terminate deal. now, that's interesting because president obama worked out the deal with castro's cuba. we got nothing at all. we didn't get any american
9:25 am
companies allowed in to do basic business in cuba. trump's going to change that. >> look, we in a way don't want, especially with no deal for the cuban people themselves, there's no freedom of religion, there is no freedom of the press, they do not have access to the internet and to a free discussion. joanne, a convicted cop killer on the fbi's most wanted list lived openly and freely, she was not extradited. we want a better deal. but part of that is allowing the cuban people to live freely. we doesn't want to just make money and have them live under this extraordinary oppression. stuart: this is another part of the obama legacy which is going to fall by the wayside. liz: it was done by executive order so trump could rescind that. stuart: i don't know the formal terms under which he could rescind it, but the man could negotiate a much better deal. ashley: for the cuban people. >> and it will make the cuban people freer, not just a better
9:26 am
deal for them, but for everyone. stuart: fears of racial attacks under the trump presidency, a falling a surge for gun background checks. cyber monday, maybe 3, 3 1/2 billion in sales and amazon will get a chunk of that. the bricks and mortars can't keep up. the opening bell is next.
9:27 am
9:28 am
9:29 am
9:30 am
>> the opening bell will ring in five seconds. remember, please, it's less than three weeks since the election. we've seen a trump rally and let's see if it continues this monday morning. probably a small loss, yeah, down 27 in the very, very early going. i see a lot of red indicating overall stocks are moving down. sow about the s&p 500? it's also on the down side, not much, .16%, that's a fractional loss. how about the nasdaq? it's been doing well recently and it's down .2%. so, we're off and running on a monday morning. most stocks likely lower. the price of crude oil is close to $47 a barrel. it's up today. how about gold? where are we? lost about 100 bucks right after the election, and now
9:31 am
it's at 1189. it is up 8 bucks, but that puts it down about 110 since the election overall. ashley webster is with us, elizabeth mcdonald is with us, scott shellady, too, and keith fitz-gerald. today is cyber monday, yes it is. you have to go to the store to get on-line. around the block, my daughter bought a 44 inch, what's the name of it, tv set. ashley: 4-k, the newest one. stuart: it was a 44 inch screen, $150. ashley: how much? >> an extraordinary deal. can anybody beat that. how about you, scott, can you beat that? >> no, i can't beat that, but you know what they say, stuart, the average discount is around 40% if you're not at least getting 40% off it's not worth your cyber time. at the end of the day i think that black friday is now just a social event and obviously, the retailers on-line will take over. stuart: what do you say, keith,
9:32 am
about my daughter's bargain? [laughter] >> i think that's a great bargain. we got one look, interestingly enough at that nike retailer that got torn apart and we didn't want to park in the parking lot and went right back up the highway. stuart: there you go. that's cyber monday. what have you got, ash. ashley: i think it's interesting another phenomenon hurting sales. how many people went to the mall in the old days and buy something you wouldn't normally buy. all of those sales are gone because people are more specific on-line they click on something they want and they buy it. so sales of the stuff you don't really need goes away. liz: i'm impulsive on-line though. [laughter] >> and it was a sony kd will 40 inches, lcd for 149.99 at amazon at 4:00 this morning. i call it a bargain. liz: she got up at 4 a.m. to do that? >> it runs in the family. stuart: enough of this family stuff. look at the price of oil, where
9:33 am
are we? goldman sachs says the global economy would do much better if oil prices were higher. scott shellady, you say what? >> well, that's probably because they're looking at 2008, 2009 when they represented us out of our problem by the oil industry created all the jobs and now what, stuart, i have to say this, if oil is at $20 a barrel and you don't have a job it doesn't matter it's at $10 a barrel. you have to have a job to get benefit from the cheap oil. a little higher oil if it helps out the oil companies obviously would help out the equity markets and i think, yes, to some degree, telling a little bit of truth on this one. stuart: okay, we haven't talked about the italian banks not since the british exit actually. they're back in the news and one of them is down big time, almost down 100%. they're in trouble, what's the story? >> yeah, eight are on the
9:34 am
brink. 380 million in rotten loans, they're on the brink of clams. december 4th, constitutional reform vote coming in for italians to vote on. if the government doesn't get its way, we're looking at possible e uchueu at stake, ita wants to get out of the eu and they're right there, second in the lead in terms of popularity. this could set in motion italian exit by next summer. so the banking collapse is so severe right now. stuart: on sunday, if it goes the other way, they say no to constitutional reform. italians banks in trouble. european union in trouble. is it affecting us, do you think? >> yes. liz: it could. they would have to print their way out of crisis. stuart: we're what, five minutes into the trading day. >> that's a novel idea. stuart: what do you say? >> i say print yourself out of
9:35 am
the crisis is a novel idea. sounds new to me, i've never heard of that before. [laughter] >> yes, you have. sarcasm is a low form wit, and you know it. >> april fool's is a few months away. stuart: and down 34, 19,117. how about disney stock? mo moana, second best thanksgiving weekend behind frozen and tickets are now on sale for "star wars" movie "rogue one", disney is down a little. and the cuva, soaring after the death of fidel castro. barron's like the share price of resorts and casino operator mgm. nicole, come in, please, why do they like them and going up? nicole: they love it. they think of the stock and in
9:36 am
barron's if the stock could rise over 21 months and the idea behind it, las vegas is not just gambling and it's knots just elvis impersonators and celine dion. what it is, analysts are saying, it's a convention place for business. to tourism and seeing entertainment and sports there and even have a nhl hockey people they're going to have starting next year. the golden knights. and the number of people going to vegas gained about 2% year over year, so it was about 32 million, upwards of 32 million through september and it was up almost 2% year over year. the other piece here is the real estate investment trust that mgm owns about 76% of that and contrary to their competitor, wynn which has big exposure in asia and somehow gets its proceeds in a different way, you know, mgm is the beneficiary of this one
9:37 am
making cash in the states. stuart: the comeback is the story. i've got breaking news for you, pictures from trump tower, general david petraeus will meet with president-elect donald trump today. and who will be offered the secretary of state-- sorry, the secretary of defense, could be david petraeus. ashley: and secretary of state. stuart: and be there, too. who knows? about you the meetings continue at white house north. we don't often talk about the russell 2000, but we should, it's up 12% just since the election. keith, you're our market watcher here, this is the trump rally, isn't it? okay, it's down today, .2%. but this is the trump rally rit large. >> absolutely, stuart. because these small companies, many of which are in the russell index have the opportunity and they're going to gain from the tax reform an and they're the ones that have got the enthusiasm and innovation to come onto the scene. so it's logical we're seeing some sort of rotation into the
9:38 am
small cap stocks. stuart: they had a terrific run-up, 12% on this alone. >> i think some of those stocks are expensive. here is the key. if you a look for the companies that have a growth rate that's independent of the economic model and higher than economic, and doesn't have debt and put those things together and make the argument you buy even at the top. stuart: how about apple? you said $200 share on apple in two years, i don't think you look it now, do you? >> to be clear, i'm not saying sell ap apple, i'm saying holding onto apple. they' they're-- products margins and sales are not as deluxe as it was. i'm saying there are better opportunities for them, and amazon with the streaming intelligence, where you want to put money right now.
9:39 am
stuart: we've got pictures of a nike store trashed on black friday. i'm not sure where it was. ashley: washington state and keith referenced it. look at the karncarnage, unbelievable. people store through the store looking for black friday. and one employee described it as "jurassic park." you don't put the box back, apparently if you try shoes on. throw it to the floor and grab another one. >> i guess you do. that's black friday at nike, one store. we like to talk about tesla, consumer reports says the new model s is fast and flawed. what's that. liz: it's electrical problems, the rear doors don't close, they pause and stop. this is a car that costs $110,000. consumer reports also saying the second row seats can't be folded down. limited cargo capacity and even
9:40 am
though it can go to 60 miles per hour in less than five seconds, the ride is choppy, way too stiff and firm, not a pleasant ride for $110,000. ashley: that's not-- >> wow. stuart: keith was that you, saying whoa? >> everybody has to beat up on tesla pause -- because they're innovative. not different from any other company that brings out a new car. stuart: gun stocks, an interesting report here. gun sales spiked for minorities after the election, i'm not sure if it was gun sales or applications to are permits that spiked. it was amongst minorities. ashley: and the lbgt community saying they don't feel as safe since donald trump won the election. one gun store owner in texas said they have seen more black and minority customers and fbi background checks, with the latest phenomenon, november
9:41 am
could be higher. stuart: we don't know where black folks think the threat is coming from. ashley: well, there was one quote from a shop owner who said, racists feel like they can attack us just because the president is doing it. stuart: you could make the counter argument in some inner cities with strict gun control laws, blacks are not allowed to defend themselves against black criminals. ashley:. you could make the case. ashley: you could. stuart: gun stocks are down and they've been down pretty much since the trump election. and more from the minority and lbgt communities. 19,100, yes, it's cyber monday and amazon is gearing up for a very busy day. on your screen now, a live look at an amazon mega warehouse, huge place. i don't know how many football fields you can cram in there, but a lot.
9:42 am
that's in new jersey. we're going to take you there momentarily and again, i'm going to tell you about the story. some italian hotels offering free rooms if you conceive a child during your stay. it sounds like a funny headline, but there's a serious story behind it. it's all about demographics and the aging population in italy. serious problem for them. we'll be back. ♪ no matter how the markets change... at t. rowe price... our disciplined approach remains. global markets may be uncertain... but you can feel confident in our investment experience around the world. call us or your advisor... t. rowe price. invest with confidence. when a moment turns romantic, why pause to take a pill? or stop to find a bathroom? cialis for daily use is approved to treat both erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms of bph,

9:46 am
all right. the focus of holiday shopping turning to the internet, cyber monday, that should be huge for sampson. adam shapiro is with us at the amazon facility in robsensville, new jersey. the shot, the camera doesn't do it justice how big that place is. >> no, the pictures don't do it justice, stuart. 100 million square feet. 18 football fields. take a look how it actually works because you have several different stories of storage and when the orders come in, it's automated. they literally that have computers that pick products off and put them in yellow bins and go on the conveyor belts. they're throughout the entire facility and come over here, if we pan over this way, you can see some of the packing that takes place and remember, this is only about a quarter of the facility in your shot right
9:47 am
now. there are 4,000 people who work here part-time. so when you think about the size of this facility and they will shift just from this facility with 69 others nationwide. 629 parcels a second. that's what they did last year. they expect to beat that this year. as far as the size of this place, you could get a lot of chrysler minivans in here.

and communism it was not formed as you and i were in the western i call it the western civilized world where you learn it be different systems including communism. there you learn a form of education that fits what his world view is. it's very close to being a slave under kim jong-un in korea where you believe that that is your world. >> all right david you tell it how it is next one. hillary another story viewers just joining us. recount story is very important. hillary clinton is supporting the recount idea started bid green party jill stein is. however, please let's go back and remember with when hillary clinton said this. >> that is horrifying. you know every time donald think yourself not going in his direction he claims, whatever it is is rigged against him. >> he said something truly horrifying -- and that was that he wouldn't say he would accept the results

10:10 am
is now 100 boulevard to the u.s. nickel so what we're seeing is the trump administration could be inherenting on its back doorstep on our back doorstep a default meaning it is in collapse but it is going to default so what happens then? yeah, we're with also hearing reports that -- there's medical supplies coming into the country of venezuela but government is taking it at the same time the oil company, 11 billion dollars in theft out of pay went to -- went to the socialist who were running the oil company. it is so bad people are actually using scales to weigh the money. to ascertain how much they have. >> they need backpacks to walk away from this. >> i have israel third largest city, this is a -- that doesn't show what i want to show. wildfires you can see they've burned through. it's wildfire that is left 130 injured 700 homes destroyed.

10:16 am
you if attorney general and the congress find evidence that -- that would indicate that something needs to happen, and our attorney general jeff sessions that d.o.j. says something needs to happen i would suspect that president-elect trump is going to be open to listening to what that is. but ultimately the d.o.j.'s call. >> we have a poignant and special guest with us this morning. kathleen -- the mother of a navy sailor who is serving a one-year sentence for mishandlings classified picture was a nuclear submarine. welcome back kathleen. >> thank you stewart for giving me an opportunity to speak out again. >> your son did a lot less of what is accused hillary clinton is accused of doing, correct? >> absolutely correct. >> now, what do you make of this it is possible that attorney general under a trump administration would continue the investigation and maybe prosecute hillary clinton. it is possible she gets a pardon. what do you think about all of this? >> well, one of the things that i've had to pox on since the election is -- healing for myself and for my
10:17 am
family, and i also recognize we need to heal as a country. am i rei about that and feel it is a double standard absolutely. but there's another aspect that is bigger picture than moist an my son and others maybe held to a double standard is healing of our country and it needs to go through proper channels. i think he's not necessarily stating that he wouldn't do that. but that the proper channels would do that to criminal justice. >> as you say proper channels to be gone through. you're not necessarily plugging for a pardon which would include your son. you want justice to be done. >> i want justice to be done. i believe that she needs to be held to the same standard as all american patriots are held to. i, in fact, never thought about requesting a pardon until people such as mayor joule general knee came on. others came on talking about if you're gopg to pardon her you need to pardon him as well. >> would you support that? >> i would support that, in fact, there's a -- >> priority is you want him out. >> priority that my son can go
10:18 am
on with a life a mistake at 22 years old although it was wrong he shouldn't have to be paying for the rest of his life when people such as hillary clinton made the mistake many more times than six times. >> what about this donald trump has returned to trump tower and this morning we understand that david petraeus came to trump tower there's talk of him being the next secretary of defense. david petraeus there he is, david path petraeus was punished severely for handling mishandling classified information same as your son. what u do you make of petraeus? >> what i make of petraeus again is here's a higher level official, in a rank who didn't go to prison why as my son did go to prison. so i think there's a different standard there as well. as far as him being a fern qualified to the position, i don't know. but i would feel that he is because i think in that defining aspect it was incorrect of the crime.
10:19 am
>> maybe secretary of state as in maybe in line for that job. secretary of state but same argument hold os. he's a senior pcial official and if he gets in as secretary of state, you had want something done about your son. >> well, i feel strongly that we need to look at what's happened and level of punishment that my son has and what our family has gone through. we have a wonderful attorney who was a retired judge a retired chief of police of disabled veteran actually here in the green room today, an he has offered his service pro bono to fight for my son. he met chris last week for the first time and went to prison and met him and came out he called me crying and i started crying because he said, i feel i've met a true patriot and a hero in your son and i'm going to fight for him. >> what's the status now what is the chance do you think you've got sentenced to a year in jail -- >> correct. >> sentenced to a year you don't get out early for 2k3w50d behavior. >> not in federal prison so part of it isn't just this year. this year is important, obviously, because he's away
10:20 am
from his family and serving in a federal prison. the time is the rest of my son's life he's a young man with a young daughter, he's losing all of his benefits for the v.a. for his disability which he's service connected disabilities as well as a convicted felon so not just about one year that he's serving right now. so it's much more than that. >> kathleen we wish you well. we wish you well of your endeavor and wish you the very best of luck. >> thank you please pray for our family and facebook page american patriots against double starpdz where we speak about double standards in all aspects not just my son. >> thank you. god bless. >> god bless kathleen thank you very much. >> reports of an active shooter at ohio state university. an order of shelter in place is in effect right there. obviously we bring you more news on this. when it occurs thank you we'll

10:34 am
2020 election for democrats a black man from new jersey. kamala harris u new incoming senator in california another possible 2020 candidate she's black from california. this seems to to be. i don't know how to put it but advantagement within the party are all black. >> that would be fine if people were chosen on their merits and these candidates well may be. the issue is the thinking that defines whites as the problem. you cannot underestimate the extent to which the academy now dominates democratic thinking an we have seen this with black lives matter activist that have been conducting a race based war against police police officer. president obama has several times welcomed black lives matter activists into the white house. and we have this summer cops being assassinated deliberately trying to find white cops to kill.

11:04 am
times on your show. more businesses, more people working, that is one of the best ways getting tax revenues in the economy. it is simply economic truism. simple math, when the economy is growing at 1 1/2%, there is no way to bring down the deficit or debt. on spending, yes, of course with any president he has priorities areas he wants to spend in. one is infrastructure. the other you mentioned he wants to rebuild the depleted military. my goodness, there is 4 trillion dollars federal government, stuart. there are ways to save money. so many ways to see spending. stuart: we have heard that before. bloated government. plenty of waste, cut out. >> no doubt about it. stuart: cut the waste, okay. we heard it so many times before. we never see it. what you're looking at, surely, steve is a big run-up in the deficit next year and 2018. >> first of all, look, we had $10 trillion of new debt last eight years.
11:05 am
we could hardly have a worse record than barack obama has. if you get growth and you have a president who run a company, knows how to cut expenditures, how to make sure that your revenues are matching your expenditures, i think you are going to see some downsizing. i will give you an example. trump mentions many times this report about $150 billion of fraudulent payments from programs like medicare, social security, medicaid, food stamps. nobody in government has taken it seriously to get rid of the fraud. tell me, stuart, why is it visa and american express have fraud rates of maybe half a percentage point but these federal programs have fraud rates of 12, 13%? you tell me we can't do something about that? stuart: i'm looking at history, how many times i have seen politicians, leaders, say, there is a lot of waste, we'll go at it and cut it and drain the swamp. i haven't seen serious action on

11:07 am
will raise taxes on eight million families, included in that number, families with three or more children and majority of single parent households. do you accept that number? do you accept that critique? >> i don't accept the numbers. i think there are problems with the plan. some people who actually, because of ways we'll have to tweak the tax cut would actually have to pay possibly somewhat higher taxes but hear this, this is important. we're going to fix that i have talked to steve mnuchin. i have talked to the others in the incoming team. we made a priority if you're paying taxes, you can take this to the bank, if you have a tax burden undonald trump's plan your taxes will go down. it is not going up. if people fall through the cracks we'll fix that we'll fix it. stuart: steve moore, thank you very much, indeed. we'll see you again very soon. >> loved your commentary by the way. exactly right by identity politics.

11:09 am
that is why oil is up today. stuart: that is fascinating. opec must reach a production cutting agreement, therefore the price goes up. jeff flock, good explanation. thanks very much. serious story about a active shooter at ohio state university. there is something new, ash? ashley: we reconfirm what we have. columbus s.w.a.t. team, atf, fbi all on the scene at ohio state university where we believe an active shooter is still on the loose. we've heard nothing to suggest that person or persons are not. we do know that columbus fire, confirming, according to them, eight people have been injured an transported to local hospitals seven in stable condition. one in critical condition. this is very fluid situation. those numbers tend to change when you get different agencies giving different reports. to this point we know people have been injured. we don't know the nature of those injuries.
11:10 am
one person in critical condition. we do not know what is the situation with the shooter or shooters. based on what we're seeing and what we've heard so far, it appears the situation is ongoing. stuart: the authorities are telling students to run, hide, fight. ashley: fight. stuart: that's intesting, ashley, thank you. mark steyn, international best-selling author, syndicated columnist, clearly varney favorite, he will be with us this hour. his response to my take on the left's identity politics. fidel castro dice at age of 90. donald trump condemned him call him a brutal dictator but look at the headlines from the media. cuban leader a spirit all beacon to the political far left.

11:19 am
if shooting is ongoing it is dynamic entry and the usual slow, methodical search will be out the window. they will respond to the location of the shooter quickly as possible. stuart: david capps, thank you very much indeed for your expertise. we appreciate it. ongoing situation at ohio state university, reports of people injured and in the hospital. unconfirmed at this point by the official authorities but clearly this is an ongoing, dangerous, situation. all right. we're about ten minutes away from mark steyn. he is going to weigh in on the left's hypocrisy, challenging the election, trying to undermined trump's presidency. of course identity politics. mark steyn is with us shortly. hillary clinton will join the recount drive in three states. that is a complete reversal where she was before the election.

the active shooter situation at ohio state university. >> nothing there from authorities other than the fire department and columbus day in at least seven people are very unclear at this point been sent to the hospital. at least one in critical condition. we say there is an active shooter on the scene but we don't know those details. as you can see, there is a heavy police presence on ohio state university have nearly 60,000 students. we understand this happen in the area north end of the campus here in engineering building. that's all we know at this point. waiting to hear from officials. stuart: at the top of the hour, otherwise known all about identity politics. i am saying that something is going on in america these days
11:31 am
and one of the things going on is the decline, the demise of identity politics. i certainly hope so. joining us now is mark stein, author and syndicated columnist. democrats seem like he will continue with identity politics but this is one of the losing issues of the last election. >> i think you're right. trump one because people don't want to be treated on the asis on the caliber of their skin or preferences and want to be treated as citizens in a free society, coequal with their other citizens. the big campaign adviser joe said the other day don't made howard dean because they don't need another white man. day after that hillary supercar
11:32 am
con showed treated that bernie sanders is a white supremacists. these are the two coolest guys in the democrat party and they are just old white development white men. bernie sanders happened to be in new york jewish and rural vermont which in terms of being a minority is a bit like being a gay nightclub owner in riyadh. it's a small minority as you can get. the other way for democrats to get beyond this is due with elizabeth warren doesn't pretend to be 1302nd charity so you get the first woman of color when in fact she's the widest way since frosty the snowman felony that. people laugh at this insanity but democrats are doubling down. stuart: i forget to tell the audience you are a comedian. we love it.
11:33 am
give us your comments please. jill stein opening not the recount effort in three states and hillary clinton joining in. >> obviously it's crypto critical. you must get whiplash defending the democrats and the media because 20 minutes ago trump was delegitimizing the entire democratic process in the united states by hinting there could even be any funny business going on. now their son and dangerous than this. you risk signaling to the people by making it all about lawsuits or ration hacking or whatever. you risk telling the people that there is no way they can peacefully express a preference for a change of policy.
11:34 am
if jill stein were to win, which basically means finding some cockamamie judge and a capitalist state to state the official decision of that states about, if jill stein and hillary were to prevail, i think you're basically moving us into real banana republic territory where that people cannot express their preference at the ballot box because it will all be finagled with a lot of mumbo-jumbo afterwards and that's very dangerous. stuart: do you think there's something going on in america bubbling away under the surface came out in the election, some fundamental sea change in our culture? >> yeah, i think so. you see that in the united kingdom and i think you see it in france to a degree it will become clear in their presidential election.
11:35 am
i think that people love it because western society is have figured out the elites have a racket going that works pretty well for them but in fact doesn't do anything for the electorate and they're tired of being condescending to buy people. it's one thing that the people who are brilliant and clever and make sure decisions. but to be condescended to buy you leave to tell you the jobs have gone but there's nothing to look forward to accept an $8 an hour overnight shift until the day you drop dead intern in advanced western societies into cheap service economies, this is a big change and it's the end of the post second world war conventional wisdom on a lot of this stuff. that's a pretty big thing happening. >> host: what do you make of
11:36 am
nigel farage? he says he can't go anywhere for fear ofviolent attack, has to have security everywhere. >> nigel and i took part in a debate in toronto a few months ago appeared at the end of that we were standing on the sidewalk at midnight or whatever it was. nigel was actually relieved been in the city he didn't have to worry about someone coming up to him in a pub and slugging him or face. i guess to the succession with identity politics in both the united kingdom and united states is actually criminalizing policy differences. they say you don't just have a difference of opinion with me on climate change or the e.u. or immigration or transgendered bathrooms. you're actually advancing a position that is evil and you
11:37 am
shouldn't be advancing. if you do that often enough, people take a serious way and they do start getting violent over it. the list of what you can discuss keeps getting longer. as i said, the climate change in immigration and islam and it winds up with stuff like transgendered bathrooms. but the list of the staff that there's only one correct view on keeps getting longer. you shouldn't be surprised when a totalitarian mind that sets in as we say on a lot of college campuses these days were effectively they are one-party states and they want that one-party state academy donald was saying. they want the ideological one-party state imposed throughout the rest of the country, too. >> what is your take on fidel castro? >> i rejoice that he's dead and it is disgusting that the
11:38 am
president of the united states and the prime minister of canada and later the opposition in the u.k. and all kinds of other people are in fact choosing to mourn and to celebrate a mass murderer. shame on them for being unable to say honestly that this man was. he drove a stake of its population to flee the country. he killed thousands. he's an evil man who should be in a roasting that and how. for barack obama and justin trudeau and jeremy corbin in london to be able to distinguish between the freely elected leader in a mass murdering tater, and the totalitarianism is disgusting. stuart: you've got a new show, the mark sideshow. i think it will be popular. >> i've been practicing like the way you went into the last

11:45 am
welcome to the program. every year we go through these crazy list of spending and come back the next day and do it all over again. can you promise us that this kind of waste and not fence will be eradicated under president trump? >> i can't promise you anything will be eradicated because you deal with a federal budget. my main job is to provide the oversight to look and say how to get rid of this. we don't identify the resolve it. 25 years and a wrote with giving subsidies to help when power gets started. they don't need jumpstart funds. $6 billion subsidy to the ella to do that. we got that wound down last year. i was in my book from last year. we can take a piece at a time as we look at each year. >> are you going to go through
11:46 am
department by department saying how much are you going to cut here? end quote to every department. if adult works? >> asic oversight means two things. most of the issues are grand. $600 billion a year in grants. it's worse than even children sneezing. they were testing to see if children would eat food that someone needs down right in front of them. that was the big test they did, which by the way i can answer for free. no. children don't want food that's been nissan. all the grace to go out the door coming got to have a way to watch duplication and do with government duplication and agencies. you have to have a way to oversee regulators. once you get processes open in place then you've got to have real oversight. that's what the media does. >> you still got that situation where people want to bring home
11:47 am
the bacon of any form to their constituents. you will always have that pressure. given the money i want to spend it here. >> the pork measured in here are projects some identified and want to bring home. those are diminishing because the amount of media attention coming on them in with the ban on earmarks now in place we are getting less and less pork projects and more wasteful projects that need more oversight. now is the next step of how we deal with the oversight needed good stuart: would thank you for appearing on the program. we will have you back to see if you got rid of some of us. >> be glad to do that. thank you, sir. you've got more examples of government waste. medicaid payments people didn't deserve it.
