3:09 pm
storm. seeing the mess that's going on in the democratic side. the fact that bernie sanders could possibly be the nominee of the democratic party. this is exactly what he's been waiting for all his life. >> if that's the case, bloomberg has been waiting 73 years. if he gets in, the former mayor would be older than everyone in the field exempt for bernie sanders. >> thank you. >> would you consider voting for michael bloomberg? let me know at or on twitter. you can use the #special report. a possible bloomberg independent campaign is the latest sign of a voter revolt against the traditional ways of doing things. friday night we'll have a bloomberg special. we'll talk to experts and real people. >> you typically vote republican? >> i don't vote at all. ever. i've never voted. >> not once. >> no.

scientists are comparing the announcement of the detection of gravitational waves to the first practical use of a telescope by galileo four centuries ago. in other words, a big deal. gravitational waves are ripples in the fabric of space time created by violent collisions such as the merging of black holes. scientists call the waves the sound track of the universe. they were first predicted by albert einstein in 1916. they were finally detected by a billion dollar device that bounces laser beams off mirrors along two giant perpendicular arms more than two miles long.
3:30 pm
eventually we'll explain that all better but we wanted to tell you about it. back here on earth, earlier the supreme court slammed the brakes on president obama's latest salvo in the war on coal. today, the president is calling the court's decision unusual and says, he is confident the administration is on strong legal footing. tonight, the correspondent tells us, much of the damage to the once vibrant industry has already been done and maybe irreversible. >> two-thirds of the revv lieu come from energy. with coal production at a 30-year low, the state's financial future is uncertain. >> no question it is a tough time. there is no way to page the picture so it looks good. >> the nation's second biggest producer joins four other companies which filed for bankruptcy. arch is the country's third large esst tax payer. >> natural gas prices are extremely low. and so that's why you see coal companies that have been tried
3:31 pm
and true and have been around a long time, declaring bankruptcy. >> it is having a ripple effect. layoffs in other areas. >> in our country about, 40% of the production of electricity was from coal. last year it fell to under 32%. >> energy analysts say there is more trouble ahead. >> for coal, natural gas has been the killer. but going forward, it is probably going to be regulation. >> it is last century's energy. it is not the century looking forward. that's wind and solar and renewables. >> pete applauds the obama administration's moratorium on new coal leases on federal lands. concern remains over the hundreds of millions of dollars in clean-up obligations held by bankrupt energy company. >> i would stress the pension cost. we can't leave the workers behind or the lands behind either. >> while the epa rules are
3:32 pm
fought in the courts, it isn't expected to be resolved until long after president obama leaves office. >> in denver, thank you. more uncertainty over the price and supply of oil sent markets actualbling by as much as 400 points again today. the dow finished down 255. the nasdaq fell 17. let's get some analysis now from fox business network maria bartiromo. >> good evening. a rough day today. the trigger for the meltdown was an increasing concern that the federal reserve and other banks around the world no longer have the ability to turn around this weakening global economy. last week, the bank of japan cut interest rates below 0. today subject of negative interest rates came up when the chairman of the federal reserve answer ad question. she did not rule it out.
3:33 pm
rates are so low already that investigators are would that figure there are any tools left in the tool block to turn things around. >> it seems like it is on pinellases and needles. any other big issues? their there are. soil another issue. it is down 50% from the highs. that's really a telltale sign of weak demand from large economies like china, europe. they need to import oil to keep their economies running. you would think that cheap gasoline would be good for consumers who would theoretically plow back the savings into the economy by buying things. but stocks are selling off because we are not seeing that happen. as the cost of people's health care has eaten up any savings they've gotten at the gather pump. there are expectations that things will get worse. there are koirs that it bleed over into the oil sector.
3:34 pm
so many company have made loans to shale companies during growth spurt. i think this will has but we feel like we're in the middle of the storm right now. >> as always, thank you. republicans hit the ground running in south carolina. the mad dash to get ready for the next primary. you can't predict the market. but through good times and bad... t. rowe price... ...we've helped our investors stay confident for over 75 years. call us or your advisor. t. rowe price. invest with confidence.

we ship everything you atcan imagine.n, and everything we ship has something in common. whether it's expedited overnight...
3:36 pm
...or shipped around the globe,'s handled by od employees who know that delivering freight... ...means delivering promises. od. helping the world keep promises. [martha and mildred are good to. go. here's your invoice, ladies. a few stops later, and it looks like big ollie is on the mend. it might not seem that glamorous having an old pickup truck for an office... or filling your days looking down the south end of a heifer, but...i wouldn't have it any other way. look at that, i had my best month ever. and earned a shiny new office upgrade. i run on quickbooks. that's how i own it.
3:37 pm
3:38 pm
the question is, there is a huge gap right now between congress and the american people. the presidential leadership is closing that gap. >> you don't think president obama has successfully closed that gap. >> i don't. i think he has made the effort. but i think what we need, when i talk about a political revolution, he is bringing millions and millions of people into the political process. in a way that does not exist right now. >> bernie sanders today will start with the democrats here.
3:39 pm
hillary clinton tweeting out soon after that. let's dispel with the fix that the president of the united states doesn't know what he's doing. he knows xagly what he's doing there by hitting bernie sanders and marco rubio as well. let's bring in our panel. charles lane, opinion writer for the "washington post," and singled indicated writer, charles, the all charles panel. the three cs, the chuck wagon. we didn't plan this. charlie, what about this? and bernie sanders's positioning ahead of this debate. >> clearly the full establishment is now coming out for hillary clinton. she needs it. we have the congressional black caucus today endorsing her. and i think that they're very much hoping that going into south carolina, going to nevada. that they're calling that their fire wall. they're hoping this is where they can staunch the bleeding. the problem in nevada is that
3:40 pm
the last, she was up in the last poll which was done back before christmas. she was up 22 points. endorsement was helping her. the thing didn't go that well last time. >> harry beis out. >> in a way, this is an extraordinary moment for bernie sanders and hillary clinton in which black voters have become the swing group. they have the potential to be the king maker in the democratic party. and will be trying to leverage that for commitments and power in the party going forward.
3:41 pm
it would be extremely interesting to watch whether this establish many of black politicians, the cbc, traditional vote getters like that, really have the sway that everybody has always thought they have and that they themselves believe they have. or whether new organizations like black lives matter, and the whole wave of activists who have grown up around the incidents in ferguson, the university of missouri and so forth, whether that's a whole new force of people. some of whom might want to go with bernie sanders. >> i'm not sure i would see the attraction. i can't see black lives matter being attracted to socialism and the abstract present by bernie sanders. they know what they have in clinton. they know what they've had innocent clintons over 30 years. which is very staunch support. and at the beginning of their careers, obviously, deeply
3:42 pm
sincere. i don't see a major defection even though it is the so-called establishment in the black community supporting her. i think it is her. the problem for her is her last fire wall. she lost men by 36 points in new hampshire. she lost women by 11. she lost the under 30s by 5-1 shelf lost the 30s and mid 40s by 2-1. there is not a lot left. i don't see it. the break happening in south carolina. if it does happen, it will be later on. where the african-american vote is not quite as pre dominant as it is in south carolina. or about half the democratic vote. >> our friend mark on another channel follows this closely. had some interesting things to say. >> right now, sanders has the momentum. he's got money and message. and everything that could go wrong or be in a bad place in a cleanse campaign is going wrong
3:43 pm
with her campaign right now. there is this trust between the candidate and a lot of the staff. questions about the balance between fundraising, positive message, negative message. the real battle will be in march where she will be almost certainly now at a financial deficit. she'll have to remind people why she was the favorite. and it is hard to do that when you're on your back feet trying to deal with all the complaints and criticism. >> that's not a pretty picture. >> no. if you look at where hillary was barely able to eek it out. that is a tough state that requires a lot of organization. what we saw in new hampshire, favorable to bernie, a disastrous blowout.
3:44 pm
because of super delegates in new hampshire and iowa, cleanse, the iowa total there, 29-21. it is more than the blue. 29-21. and new hampshire tied 15-15. pledged delegates and super delegates. what happened to the vote? >> she has the super delegates are there for her. one of the powers of the super delegates is they get to change. as happened with barack obama in 2008. >> next up, the republicans march on south carolina.
3:45 pm
tired of working for peanuts? well what if i told you that peanuts can work for you? that's right. i'm talking full time delivery of 7 grams of protein and 6 essential nutrients. ever see a peanut take a day off? i don't think so. harness the hardworking power of the peanut. two words: it heals.e different? how? with heat. unlike creams and rubs that mask the pain, thermacare has patented heat cells that penetrate deep to increase circulation and accelerate healing. let's review: heat, plus relief, plus healing, equals thermacare. the proof that it heals is you.
3:46 pm
3:47 pm
3:48 pm
is he worried about his legacy in everything is trashing people. even trump, i read today trump is like all this guy does is attack. >> donald trump has zero foreign policy experience. negotiating a hotel deal in another country is not foreign policy experience. jeb bush has no foreign
3:49 pm
policy experience, period. >> we're too politically correct. with that being said, as i goes closer and closer to the goal, it's going to get different. now we're down to not very many people. probably six in the end of the day, maybe even less than that, and once you get to a certain level, it changes, i will be changing very rapidly. i'm very capable of changing to anything i want to change to. >> well, that comment raised some eyebrows. donald trump on twitter today as he often is, talking, i guess, about the conservatives saying remember it was the republican party with the help of conservatives that made so many promises to their base but didn't keep them. also today, an endorsement from the co-founder of home depot, ken ling dgon. he is supporting john kasich. he was a supporter of chris christie who is now out of this race but now is supporting john kasich, the ohio governor. we're back with the panel. charles? >> that last switch of
3:50 pm
endorsement, if it sways 10 people i'll be surprised. >> sways money, perhaps. >> perhaps. >> his own. >> it's not going to make a lot of difference, i think, to anyone. but i do think ha last line you showed on the clip from trump, it is sort of a 30 second ad that writes itself you show that, trump saying i can be anything i want to be rapidly then you run the flip flops. you run him about what he believes about universal healthcare. what he he said about abortion, et cetera. it tells you that even he admits in the moment where he winks that a lot of this is just showmanship and play and then you have to ask yourself how much of it is real and what is he really going to be, assuming he wins it all? >> chuck. >> i was truck by the tweet, because there trump voiced what's on the mind of a lot of the mind of the republican base. we were promised so many
3:51 pm
results year in and year out. if you give us the congress, would will will do this. if you give us the senate we will do this. that is a powerful belief on the republican side. by the way it has an analog, if you like, on the democratic side. a lot of people there say i'm for sanders because he will finally deliver that progressive agenda that obama couldn't deliver it's interesting to see trump that was ted cruz's line. by voicing that in that tweet he is competing for ted cruz for that sentiment. >> that is what you hear a lot. you know, washington doesn't work. blow it up. not i'm 100 percent behind what trump says, but he definitely is going to stir things up. that's what you hear. >> i think that's also why people -- you can talk to people who are single issue voters, normally, and you can -- and you can point to evidence where donald trump has been completely against their issue, in the past or maybe even now on ethanol or
3:52 pm
something like that. and it doesn't matter. they don't care. he is not an issue candidate to them. he is an expression candidate. he is he a screw you washington candidate. and obviously it's been very successful. >> all right. meantime, ted cruz wasn't on the trail as of earlier. he has an event, i guess, tonight. he has an ad against marco rubio that has hit airwaves. >> does anyone else here struggled with being lied to? >> well, i voted for a guy who was a tea party hero in the campaign trail and then he went to d.c. and played patty cake with chuck shuman and cut a deal on amnesty. >> man you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time. >> that's one of the attack ads we are likely to see in south carolina. >> the seasonal of the savage attacks has begun. like you say, it began probably today. there is a good ad i think that cruz has on trump in which i shows him as a doll
3:53 pm
and he says is this the guy you really want? so i think it's going to start -- i think there is a little bit of exsal gear ration in the press blood spore, they are waiting, they can't wait for the blood to start to flow. it's going to be like any other state except for what happens when the field narrows you can actually hit a target and it might actually help you win know the field to 16. it is useless to have an attack ad because it does you no good. so we are approaching a season in which it will do them good. that's why we are going to see them. >> the interesting thing is it is start be to be written about that the establishment lane maybe isn't a lane and that ted cruz is trying to crime the mantel of the person who can take down donald trump and the only person who can do it. going into south carolina, is positioned in second in the early polls, one out today, but still far behind trump. >> well, ted cruz has a lot to work with in south carolina because there are a
3:54 pm
