> >> good evening, everybody, it will soon be the democratic party's turn to renominate president obama at the democratic national convention in charlotte. unlike four years ago this event is expected to be a much more toned down affair. in 2008, hundreds of thousands tuned in to watch then senator obama accept his party's presidential nomination, enormous greek columns flanked the stage of hollywood. but democratic voters not as
10:01 am
fired up this time around. a gallup poll 79% of democrats more enthusiastic of voting compared to 51% of republicans who say they are. that's not the only problem plaguing the dnc convention, high pro vile democrats actively encouraging members of congress to skip the three-day convention to stay home and campaign in their districts and the question whether former president clinton will upstage president obama. clinton, getting up prime time speaking slot wednesday, taking the stage one night before president obama. but having the former president there could back fire. by reminding voters of the sharp contrast between the two presidents. clinton oversaw a boom economy in the 1990's. this president has overseen 42 straight months of unemployment above 8%. the worst economic recovery since the great depression. as a result, president obama's
10:02 am
in a dead heat with governor romney with just over two months before election day. our if he cans guest says democrats have long had an edge on the issue of medicare and the republicans have cowered in fear, but he says it's different this year. joining us is karl rove, senior advisor to president george w. bush, and carl, great to have you. i'm going to turn to this press conference, a pop in, impromptu press conference, is this the president just acknowledging the reality the fact that he was getting hammered, skinny, but tough, but not tough enough to take on the press corps. >> it's a check the box, i've been criticized for not showing up. i'll show up take four questions, 22 minutes and blow out of there and look, the white house press corps seems
10:03 am
to be suffered from stockholm syndrome, and would you like to announce the republican in candidate from missouri for being extremist and use that to tarnish your opponent, how is that for an opening question, mr. president. how many months did he fail to answer the questions to the white house press corps? and you know, the cbs reporter, i have to admit, tough. nobody followed up. the president says we've never falled mitt romney a felon. and not only stephanie was noted in the package. but bob power, former obama campaign repeated the charges less than five weeks ago does the president have a short memory. who are you going to believe me or your lying ears, the president was saying today. >> the preamble to the first question was also, i thought, i enjoyed tremendously, thank you for being here, mr. president.
10:04 am
turning to this race, again, we're looking at two points in whatever poll you look at. this thing is as tight as it can be. are we seeing a significant shift in momentum, much ballyhoo over paul ryan, is there a clear path to the white house for governor romney? >> that's my view. the republicans engaged on the issues of medicare early rather than late. normally what happens in the closing moments democrats send mailers to seniors and scaring them over medicare and now we're having an honest debate about it and american people understand that programs like social security and medicare are going bankrupt and we need something to do to save them and the republicans are laying out a concrete plan and removing this as an element the democrats can use at the end. the republicans have been
10:05 am
gaining a better path in a tough election to victory than the democrats. president obama's problems are, people don't believe that what he's done, you know, is helping the economy. a recent poll said 46% said his policies will never improve the economy, that's pretty harsh when nearly one out of two say he will never i am perfect the policy. two-thirds have said to date either not helped or have actually hurt the economy. that's pretty tough if you're the incumbent to be dealing with the numbers, when romney's problems are, people don't know as much about them as they know about the president. >> you are the sage, so i would love to hear your explanation, why it is, the president's approval numbers, his head to head numbers here with governor romney don't seem to budge that much as you say calamitous numbers in the context. remember two things, first of all remember the first the
10:06 am
middle of august 1980 jimmy carter was ahead of ronald reagan and remember the process. people have basically chose and side who are willing to choose a side today. everyone else is sort of floating out there. 8, 10, 12% of the vote are undecided or up for grabs weakly linked to the candidate they've chosen. what they're doing, absorbing information and at some point i need to make a decision and i'm ready. maybe at the convention, after the debates, but at some point they'll make the decision and fall into the camp. and there's a number that's astonishing, the number you referred to earlier. republicans announced last week, 186 million dollars cash on hand at the end of the july. the democrats waited until today the legal deadline to announce that they had 124 million dollars cash on hand between the dnc and obama. that means the republicans have a 62 million dollar cash on hand advantage. remember this, at theened of the april, the democrats were
10:07 am
up by 95 million. at theened of may up by 61 million the end of june 23 million. obama won in 2008 in large measure he spent far more money than john mccain did. they hoped to take the spending advantage and turn it to their advantage in the fall this time around again, but they have spent too much and raised too little despite 205 presidential fundraisers, at the end of july full decisively behind to the romney-ryan tkt in raising money. >> fascinating numbers, we appreciate it indeed. carl ref, thank you. our next guest says the president wants a smaller merc in the name of global fairness, joining us now is new york tooms best selling author, whose brand new book released "obama's america, unmaking the american dream" released
10:08 am
yesterday is already on the amazon top 10 best seller's list. he's been busy and producer, co-writer of the new movie "2016 obama's america" and basically i understand it's on the top 10. >> it's a documentary film and new information who obama is and there's a hunger out there. >> lou: conveniently in your new book, you review what reelected president obama would do and what america would look like. you talk about the founding fathers, talking about the haar hard law professor huberto unger. explain his influence, and the likely impact? >> well, obama was obsessed with his father, barack obama, sr., but barack obama, sr. was an absentee father so throughout hits life obama
10:09 am
looking for other guys, i call them surrogate or founding fathers and he learned chapter and verse what he took to be his father's ideology from those guys. we know there was the communist frank marshal davis in hawaii, if, jeremiah wright and phil ayers, and a guy who has written that he would like to see brazil, china, india and russia gang up on the united states. he says it's a bad idea for america to be number one, he calls that america and germany, he wants to end it, he wants two, three, four, and five to come together and pull america down. >> lou: and why is such a man tolerated? what is the point? what does he bring to the students of harvard university? what kind of madness, like the fools who thought that the euro would replace the dollar and
10:10 am
wonderfully sophisticated trans atlantic geniuses thought the dollar's days are done. haven't we had enough of that nonsense. >> this guy is not only tolerated, but separated and of course, obama took his courses and retained a close relationship and when the 2008 election, he skipped town, i'm a leftist and revolutionary, if anybody connects me with obama, it's going to hurt obama. he's a cocoon that protect the sillness and represent some insight into the future, and-- you're right the problem is when it's taken by a guy in the oval office to endorse pablam, and encores in the united
10:11 am
states. >> and tell when what it means when there are chilling words expressed. >> there are three important countries in the middle east. three significant countries, egypt, iran, saudi arabia, since 1979, iran has been in the hand of the radical muslims. egypt is now on the way to the radical orbit with the brotherhood coming to power. and what's next? saud raeb, can you imagine if in the second term that he insisted that saudi arabia put itself up for elections who would win? the muslim brotherhood. and this then you have the important tripod in hands of the radical muslims, that's the dream, they wanted the middle east in a single orbit and one guy calls in the united states of islam. >> and a-- >> they had he have to work it
10:12 am
out. here in the united states we have a civil war and we have to fight our way through it, but to create islam as a global power, that's a big dream. >> and it's a big book and we're delighted that you've written it, as i've said, already, the top, the top at the point on amazon on its way surely to the very top of the new york times best seller. the book is "obama's america", and be sure to check out 2016 as well. thank you very much. defer deportation, up to two million young illegal immigrants looking to avod void deportation, he has a few void deportation, he has a few obje hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios

10:15 am
>> the u.s. commission on civil rights held its first hearing on alabama's law targeting illegal immigration. our next guest appeared before the panel that met today in birmingham and argued that the state's law is not discriminatory and pointed out helped reduce crime and unemployment in the state. and joining us the kansas secretary of state. numerous state laws including alabama. great to have you here, chris. how would you characterize the
10:16 am
both the accomplishment the conclusion of today's meeting? >> there were a lot of facts put on the table and pretty dramatic and positive outlook for the state of alabama. for example in the nine months ter the law was signed into-- the bill was signed into law, unemployment went dropping almost two full points. the whole u.s. economy, the nation as a whole 0.7% and alabama is now one of the states that has lower than average unemployment and people credit it to the legal. the law encouraged illegal aliens to leave the states and roughly 42,000 alabamans came off the unemployment rolls and crime in certain categories is down and it's been a real success story. interestingly some of the opponents tried to protest and didn't want the facts on the table. >> lou: what do you mean protest? who you could they--
10:17 am
how could they probably change the testimony before the commission? >> well, they were trying to shout down some of the speakers. >> oh. >> and interrupt the proceedings. >> lou: that's a part of modern life in america, isn't it? especially when you deal with issues as controversial as illegal immigration. and let's turn to a couple of things. have we also seen a commensurate decline in welfare rolls at the state level, the federal level, jobless chams? what has been the impact there? >> we have seen the decline in jobless claims in states like arizona and alabama and other states that have very vigorously tried to reinforce the rule of law. in terms of other welfare programs, we should be seeing that because part of these laws, both in arizona and alabama and actually about a dozen states is a provision saying no more taxpayer benefits, public benefits to illegal aliens, so it's a
10:18 am
little harder to measure those decreases and figure out how much of the decrease in welfare outflow is due to fewer illegal aliens in the state. the justice department making clear to the state of alabama that it was concerned about illegal immigrants. the children of illegal immigrants in public schools there, what has been the impact there as well. >> well, contrary to the claims of some of the people in the open borders crowd that somehow this would shut down the school system or be denying people a right to an education or hasn't. alabama has been simply collecting statistics and a better graph on how much of taxpayer dollars are going to financele legal immigration. >> and you also appeared before the court of appeals on hazelton, trying to resurrect the hazelton, 2000, 2006 laws. when will we have a ruling, do you expect, on that? >> it's hard to predict when a
10:19 am
court of appeals is going to issue a ruling. maybe 10 to 15 months-- >> did i ask you a question? can i ask you a question, chris? you're an attorney, a student of the law as well as practitioner and office holder. why in the hell should american citizens put up with courts taking that long to rule on anything, short of, let's say, you know, you know as larry gatlin would say, rocket surgery? i mean, this is nuts. >> well, i have to be careful since i'm an attorney who argues before the courts-- >> you've got to be honest here. you know what? it's about time the legal profession get honest. you know. >> well. >> it's disgusting what we're watching and i'm not saying this in particular, but many' talking whether it's a criminal trial, civil trial and this country is walking along with a nation of sheep. no problem for a civil trial to last five years, the criminal
10:20 am
trial two to three years. business, our society it's destructive and no one has the guts in your profession to talk about it? >> well, i think some do. to be fair, some of our courts are really overloaded and-- >> i don't want to be fair, i want to be right and i'd like to know where the efficient court is because i want to hold it up for the country because frankly, chris, i couldn't point it out. >> there are a few circuits like the 4th circuit. >> we're going to take the 4th circuit, your model and follow it, but sounds to me you must do a lot of practice in the 4th circuit. >> thank you. their nickname is the rocket docket if that gives you any impression. >> lou: it gives me an impression of hyperbole. up next, union workers and bosses living high on money,
10:21 am
and i'm sure the administration wants to do something about it and next, the
10:22 am
10:23 am
10:24 am
>> well, a new book has shot to the top of the best seller list on its way and just come out. union boss, and democratic party aren't too thrilled about the new book because there are 8.3 million government workers in the country. 8.3 million of them. and that's a lot of folks and they make more money and work less than private sector workers, plain staement of tactffac tactf tactful-- staement of fact and you and i
10:25 am
ar taxpayers are paying for the time, we're paying for the time spent working on union related matters and that's called in union speak, release time. release time. it amounts to amazingly, 23 million man hours and it's effectively a taxpayer subsidy of unions to the tune of 1 billion dollars a year. release, release the taxpayer money. it's incredible. this will please you, too. nearly half a million, half a million federal employees, that's one in five, were also
10:26 am
compensated -- let's make that one in five federal workers. let's call them employees. and that half a million, folks, make in excess of $100,000 each year, each year. and they received up to 2 1/2 months, 2 1/2 months time off each year, but being a public employee, union boss is really, well, it really the pinnacle of it all. the union bosses make on average, ten times, ten x, what their members make. the president of the american
10:27 am
federation of state, county, municipal employees, by the way, the union makes just 5 555,000 dollars a year. $555,000. the president of the national education association, the nea, the federation, the american federation of teachers, we'll call it that, they're in for 400 grand a year. and teachers unions, by the way, this is where it really gets good. teachers unions overall collect more than 2, 2 i'm just going to use this, teachers unions collect 2 billion dollars in
10:28 am
dues each year. think about that. 2 billion dollars in dues. now, that money is going to liberal politicians, for example, president obama, his signature health care law designed to unionize, does this new book, 21 million health care workers. 21 million health care workers. is this starting to come together for everybody? we're starting to see this web of interest and direction? and why? because for every million of these workers unionized in the 27 nonright to work states, unions stand to earn a billion dollars in dues. do you get the feeling that
10:29 am
there's a little at stake here when we talk about obama care, health care workers, unionizing as many as 21 million health care workers? well, if you're trying to catch your breath after taking a look at these numbers, get ready to meet the offer of the new book, shadow bosses, mallory factor is the author, but first we want to explain the numbers at the bottom of the chalkboard real quickly, if i may. this 28, that's the percent of latinos, 28% of latinos who say they have back governor romney in the new wall street journal poll. 28%, the republicans by the way are looking for 38%. this zero, it is the amount of support that governor romney receives from black voters. are liberal teachers unions
10:30 am
indoctrinating our youth? guess who really runs our public schools? >> we'll be talking about public employee union power people with a machine. what ? customers didn't like it. so why do banks do it ? hello ? hello ?! if youbank doesn't let you talk to a real perso24/7, you need an ally. hello ? ally bank. no nonsense. just people sense. but they have to use special care in keeping the denture clean. dentures are very different to real teeth. they're about 10 times softer and may have surface pores where bacteria can multiply. polident is designed to clean dentures daily. its unique micro-clean formula

10:32 am
from maine to maui, thousands of high school students across the country are getting in on the action by volunteering in their community. it's great, helping others, and it feels good, too. are you in? whoa! anyone can do it. all it takes is a little time. are you in? chris young: action teams of high school students are joining volunteers of america and major league baseball players to help train and inspire the next generation of volunteers. it's easy to start an action team at your school so you, too, can get in on the action.
10:33 am
>> well, in tonight's chalk talk, we've laid out how america's taxpayers are financing the unions and how the president's health care law is in the judgment of our next guest, an effort to unionize 21 million health care workers. mallory factor, will all of these and many more stunning pacts of information together, and has written a brilliant new book "shadow bosses" government union control america and rob taxpayers blind. great to have you with us. >> great to be here. what a chalk talk interesting.
10:34 am
>> lou: i've got a lot more for you to cover and we're going to turn first to the very idea that this is a significant part of the true obama agenda. >> this is the real agenda, the real agenda by these unions, the government employee unions was to unionize health care. they only have about a million and a half health care workers unionized. but as government starts paying more and more to our health care services, they're going to start unionizing them. already ten states have unionized these independent contractors. . you'll see nurses, doctors, as you so wellpointed out, every million members is a billion dollars in dues. that's a stunning number. >> stunning. >> lou: and what union principally tends to benefit from this effort, this initiative of the-- >> the sciu, the president was
10:35 am
a part of, organizers, ask me-- by the way, president obama is our first union labor party president. and not to impinge only the food stamp president, but he's a historic figure in many ways, but interestingly there's a lot of history coming into collision now. one of those is the right to work and the unions, the power. and at times when most people think of unions as being something of, if you will, almost a relegated to the dust bin of history, well, under 7%, union organized labor in the private sector, my gosh, as you point out in the book, 37% of public employees are organizationed. >> they sure are. and 41% even more under union control because of forced
10:36 am
collective union bang. what happened is the democrat union party figured out if they give money back to the politicians, the politicians would give back it them in a never ending cycle of corruption and greed. >> this goes back to the 50's and mayor wagner. >> sure does. >> lou: it all began. right to work states. we don't have any right to work states-- >> we have 23. >> lou: 23. and as you point out that's not whole story what's going on here? >> no, it isn't. it's a good part. in right to work states you don't have anywhere near the unionism as the forced union states. there's only seven states where you're not forced in collective bargaining and 16 of those right to work states, when there's a union they can't force you to pay them, but they
10:37 am
are your sole representatives and 60% more people do pay them then e so your rights are overwelcomed by the presence of the union then in the workplace. and do you think that's going to change? how strong is the right to work movement and how is this confrontation between what, as you point out, is rising union power and riches to move ahead in the private sector as well as the public. >> the union has 14 billion dollars a year that we can find that they spend to push politicians to feather to nests and what happens is that the members have no idea who they're actually -- the politicians they're supporting and what they do with their money. it is just shocking. >> lou: very quickly, how much of a role do you think unions are going to play in this presidential election? >> you wouldn't have the democrat party that we have
10:38 am
today if government employees unions didn't have the treasure troves of money. they're the piggy bank and the engine of socialism in our country. the money that they supply to our politicians is the gasoline for that engine. >> we're going to see what the conclusions are in the weeks ahead. much luck with the book. congratulations.

10:42 am
china. good to have you back. >> delighted. >> lou: the economy, 7.6% sounds awfully robust and here, it's disappointing to the chinese on some level, but i would have to think that even they are happy about that right now. if indeed if that's the number. >> there are the statistics in china, but we think confident it's between 7 and 8%. i think that this obviously does represent a little bit more of a slowdown than previously anticipated, but very robust. and the idea that china is now, i mean, well documented and broadly reported attacks against the united states, the secretary of state clinton or her comments in africa, which is a continent of which bothnations are contesting for valuable natural resources, seem to be a very strong response on the part of the
10:43 am
chinese. was it an overreaction or should we expect more of the same? >> well, i think, best of all, this is the most important bilateral relationship in the world and i have said previously. there's going to be inevitably sniping that occurs periodically from one group or another in china, vis-a-vis the u.s., remember, we're in a leadership transition here in china as we are in the u.s. and enhe havebly the rhetoric is raised on both sides. but the one they think i with point out is over the last several years, the level and frequency of contact between u.s. government and chinese government officials has never been higher. and at every-- and have there ever been quite this many stresses? the chinese are feeling their oats from various quarters, not necessarily from the -- directly from the leadership. but they've been rather strong? their statements, but the fact of the matter is, it's getting
10:44 am
to be a little bit of an edge there. and to write it off as to a transition to new leadership this fall, you're satisfied that's all it is. >> i think inevitably, there is an edge to it. you know, on the one hand you have chinese companies now going out of china. attempting to acquire states or outright ownership of companies in the u.s. and for that matter, in europe. >> and in canada. >> canada as well. >> a 15 billion dollar deal, seeing one of the chinese owned oil companies, buying, trying to buy it outright. do you think it will go through? do you think it's very smart of the united states not to counter in-- against that takeover of resources in canada, because that's what it amounts to. >> yeah, i personally think it will go through and i think it's a mistake to counter it. there are obviously certain cases, well-documented, where
10:45 am
chinese companies attempt to acquire american firms and there are national security issues that are raised through the process. this is not at that level and he think that you have to remember, lou, that-- >> why would it not be? why would it not be? >> i think from a national security point of view we're simply concerned with the transfer of technology that we have developed that is highly sensitive from a security point of view, natural resources. >> lou: and told me point blank first, that the chinese were most interested in u.s. technology above all other assets and possibilities. at the same time, their interest in natural resources is manifest and it seems in congress that we would not object and would not insist on some adjustment and response on their part.
10:46 am
they would never permit the united states or canada to buy a chinese company whatsoever period and for us to continue the sort of patronizing attitude that we adopt toward what is after all our greatest creditor is sublimely ignorant on our part and an attitude and a position that can't sustain itself, right? >> well, let me say two or three things, federal, there are many u.s. companies that have acquired and do acquire or take significant joint venture partnerships, stakes in chinese companies. >> i'm sorry did i say a joint venture, i meant they were buying is outright. >> don't respond with a joint venture. >> lou: when i'm talking about, taking ownership of the question. can they or can't they in china? because it sounds like you're
10:47 am
questioning my statement. >> yum! brands and pepsi-- >> don't talk about yum! brands. an incorrect assertion, if you're telling me a united states company can go into china and buy a company outright say so. >> no. >> lou: we agree on that. >> we agree on that. >> then police go ahead. >> china has probably 30 to 40% of the foreign direct investment capacity available over the next three to four years for investment worldwide. now, we can take the attitude that we are strong enough to deny these investments, but as china is the largest, the largest potential growth export market for u.s. companies, i do not think that's wise to make strong statements that are not going to allow chinese companies. >> lou: i didn't say going to
10:48 am
allow. that isn't my purview, but i do think that it's really important for us to understand that we are not operating with parity, with equity in the relationship, when we permit them to hold our dollars and our reserves to run over our interests. and-- >> i've got to take a hard break here. >> all right, fine. >> lou: thanks so much, john. always a pleasure, lou. >> lou: we'll continue the conversation. >> dependency nation, americans more dependent than ever on their government. how can this country return to prosperity. and best selling author, george gelder, here to talk about his all energy development comes with some risk, but proven technologies allow natural gas producers to supply affordable, cleaner energy, while protecting our environment. across america, these technologies protect air - by monitoring air quality and reducing emissions... ...protect water - through conservation and self-contained recycling systems... ... and protect land - by reducing our footprint

certainly in the last 50 years, 60 years and i think it's terrific that you've brought the book back to reintroduce to folks and congressman ryan studied at your knee metaphorically this book. it's exciting to have romney embrace ryan. i think this represents a turning point for american policy and that we can't depend on spurring demands to impel growth. that growth is a product of entrepreneurial activity and any policies that don't foster creativity destroy demand. >> lou: and a lot of people are probably surprised to hear you talking like that because there's this idea that this is a world of spurious resources, that they're all finite, everything about us is predictive and should be predictable and there are
10:54 am
those, as you know, by the legions and many believe the leader of that legion is a guy by the name of president obama. >> and john holdren, the famine sweeping the world by the year 2000. >> and thumb suckers, he mention their names, thomas friedman over the new york time, compartmentize we should prepare is your selves for the disappointments of the future rather than embrace it, and to insure that many americans and destiny and potential. >> well, it's really amazing how government props up the past in the name of progress and that's what friedman wants. he wants a land of windmills and solar cells occupying huge
10:55 am
amounts of land and delivering no significant energy and no benefit to the environment. that is the key theme of thomas friedman's current posture, and it's ridiculous, but it's also captivated the obama administration with this cast of green goo and so it really is corrupting american enterprise. >> lou: your book, your thoughts, your perspectives in this book, your philosophy is so compelling because you don't defend capitalism, you don't defend free enterprise, you advocate it, you embrace it, you create great enthusiasm about the ideas that have made this country so wealthy and people forget, created so much wealth for entire world. >> that is right.
10:56 am
>> and the book, how important is it, do you believe that everybody read this book? >> well, i think there's a whole new generation out there who really don't grasp the essential principles of supply side economics, that galvanized all the wealth that they currently enjoy. it really all began with that turning point, when ronald reagan assumed as following the carter administration and launched 20, 30 years, really, of expanding growth. and now, we're all encrusted with regulation and litigation and we're even trying to suppress co 2, i mean, we're in a -- look, we're the life force and it's crucial that we open the horizons of the economy. and you don't do that by putting a cap on the economy. by taxing the rich.
10:57 am
the rich are businesses that have succeeded. >> george gilder is the wonderful book "in poverty, opening the who are-- horizons of your mind", embrace who we are and capitalism for all it's worth. >> up next, we'll check i'm so glad you called. thank you. we're not in london, are we? no. why? apparently my debit card is. what? i know. don't worry, we have cancelled your old card. great. thank you. in addition to us monitoring your accounts for unusual activity, you could also set up free account alerts. okay.

[♪...] >> ...my muscle aches, my backaches really started to decrease significantly in one week. >> the first night that i actually used the nutribullet, i actually slept really well. that was exciting. that was phenomenal. >> the bad cholesterol, which was 290, went down to 190. >> the changes that i saw in myself and my family were just amazing. >> announcer: join these people and thousands just like them and discover a machine that finally has the power to take years off the way you look and feel.
11:01 am
learn from nutrition expert and bestselling author david wolfe, who speaks to sold-out audiences around the world, why he calls this the most significant discovery of his lifetime. introducing the nutribullet, the superfood nutrition extractor. the nutribullet is not a blender, it's not a juicer. it's a breakthrough in nutritional science that can change your life. the nutribullet's high-powered motor with bullet-exclusive cyclonic action breaks down and pulverizes food on a cellular level, opening up their hidden nutritional value that can reverse the effects of aging and inhepa >> positively the most depressing talk and never heardi surely there must be some brighi light. the irs, proposed remedy, the irs, i understand, has juston crackdown on conservative organizations to try to compel into doubles there. >> of course.tem, lwe >> well, look, as i said this before, the left which includes liberals, progressive,tribt, t
11:02 am
communists commerical,itiotrac mission to change the worldev. s not small changes we're today we're gonna talk talking about. they're on a mission to create the kingdom of heaven on earth, to create a classless, restless, society where there is no more and no poverty and so forth. so for them everything is political, and they don't expect anything. when democrats are in the white house, conservative foundations have to worryy,ex to bring you a machine that's going to change your life the way it changed my life. this is the nutribullet, the world's first nutrition extractor. a nutrition extractor is not a blender, it's not a juicer. it's completely different from anything else out there. this machine is designed to break down the cell walls of your food, releasing, unleashing the nutrients inside,
11:03 am
transforming ordinary fresh foods into superfoods. now i'm gonna show you the difference between smoothies from a traditional blender and what we can create with my nutribullet. let me show you what i'm talking about. o.k., we're gonna put kale in for chlorophyll and fiber. we're gonna take some pineapple for the vitamin c and a little bit of flavor. we're gonna put in some cucumbers, great for hydration, great for the kidneys, put in some cashews for the creaminess and the protein. and of course we're gonna add some flax seeds in to get the omega-3 fatty acids. and then we're gonna add spring water. let's get the lid on there. put on the extractor blades onto our nutribullet. are you ready? >> audience: ready! >> look, this blender is just mixing stuff around-- it's not breaking anything down. but the nutribullet with its
11:04 am
600 watts of compact power and bullet-exclusive cyclonic action combined with the specially designed extractor blades turning at an amazing 10,000 r.p.m.s pulverizing the cell walls, unlocking all that hidden nutrition so your body can actually absorb it and use it. now, i've got a strainer here, we're gonna pour our blended smoothie through and see what is left over. what's gonna make it through? we've got unbroken flax seeds, lots of fiber... here, let me show you this. this, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call a smoothie. [audience exclaims] now let's see what happened with the nutribullet.
11:05 am
i take off the extractor blades, looks like we've got quite a beverage in here. let's bring it out and pour it through the strainer. it's completely liquefied. all that nutrition has been turned inside out. everything's been completely broken down. and when we pour it, we can see just how glowing it is, beautiful. the real test is always the flavor. let's give it a try. that, ladies and gentlemen, is what i call a nutriblast. we've taken all of those cells, pulverized them, flipped them inside out, got all of that juice, all the nutrients-- the vitamins, the minerals, the enzymes, the essential fatty acids, the protein-- and now we can actually assimilate and utilize those nutrients. we've turned this into a superfood. listen, juicers makes juice and blenders make smoothies,
11:06 am
but the nutribullet makes nutrient-packed nutriblasts. all i'm asking you to do is have one nutriblast a day and that will transform your life. >> about five years ago the doctor told me after taking my cholesterol numbers that i was gonna have to be on cholesterol medication and most likely for the rest of my life. we tried to address it with diet, we tried to address it with exercise and neither of them seemed to work. there is a history of heart disease in my family. there's a history of high cholesterol in my family, so i felt this was the natural progression of things and it was out of my control, that there was nothing that i could do, until i went onto this nutribullet system, and that's when things really started to change dramatically. when i make my nutriblasts incorporating the nutribullet, it emulsifies fruits and vegetables so well that i feel them go right into my system, i feel those ingredients immediately, and i started to see results actually within three or four days. six weeks ago when i started this program, i weighed 182
11:07 am
pounds, and after six weeks on the nutribullet program, i believe i weighed in at 160. so this weight loss over six weeks is just a byproduct. the reason that i involved myself in the nutribullet program was for cholesterol purposes, to reduce my cholesterol, to regain control of my life and to get rid of the acid reflux. my starting cholesterol was 263 and now i'm at 208 and within a normal range. and my triglycerides are almost cut in half. look at my results over six weeks. if i can enjoy these results, i have to think that everybody can. >> when we think of hormone imbalance, we think that's only something that happens to older people... and that's nonsense. this can affect any of us at any age-- in our teens, in our 20s, in our 70s-- and hormone imbalance leads to mood swings, infertility, acne, fatigue, low sex drive, and those things can affect any of us. the emphasis here is on hormones. and both men and women
11:08 am
are affected by this. we're not built the same, so the approach has to be a little bit different, so what we've done here is we've created a nutriblast for the guys and a nutriblast for the gals. >> great. >> wonderful. >> there are so many amazing hormone-building foods. foods like beets, grapes, blueberries, pumpkin seeds, broccoli to support the prostate, olive oil, which helps keep good hormones from becoming bad hormones. we need good hormones to keep us young. we've got to put in spring water. let's put on the extractor blades. we're set. over here we have a female nutriblast, and this contains some key different ingredients. we've put in arugula, sometimes called rocket, we've added
11:09 am
raspberries for their volatile oils, which help to support female reproductive health, we've added avocado and goji berries, one of the best antioxidants on the planet. are we ready to blast off? >> audience: we're ready. >> look at the power! look at the bullet-exclusive cyclonic action. the nutribullet is pulverizing these ingredients. all right... let's see what we got. >> woman: mmm, love the colors. >> remove the extractor blades. here it is, coming down the counter. for the ladies, let's give that a try. >> yeah. >> if you have a nutriblast every day, you're gonna look better, you're gonna feel better, you can live longer and you will love longer. >> my hot flashes started when i was 35 years old, and through the years they have just progressively
11:10 am
gotten worse, where there's times in the middle of the night you just feel like you're being microwaved. but after doing some nutriblasts for the first week, i slept better, i felt more rested, i didn't have a hot flash. i am thrilled to death by the change in my health and how i feel. it's the combination of the fruits, the vegetables and all the vitamins that are all being emulsified together... it works. >> the anti-depressants, the sleeping pills and the blood pressure medication did help in the beginning. but as in long-term, it wasn't helping. well, within a week of drinking nutriblast i saw incredible changes. right now i'm sleeping a solid eight hours, i am no longer taking my sleeping pills, and nutribullet has everything to do with that. >> i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. it's extremely painful. you're in pain a lot of the time. when i started using the
11:11 am
nutribullet, i was pleasantly surprised because the first night that i actually used the nutribullet, i actually slept really well. that was exciting. that was phenomenal. it's almost unbelievable, quite frankly, that just by using the nutribullet and just properly nourishing your body that i got immediate results and a result that i was looking for. if i had to pick one kitchen appliance that i absolutely had to have, it would be the nutribullet. it is the only appliance out there that can give me exactly what my body needs in order to feel good, um, have the health and proper nutrition that is so important in order for us to be able to just live life. [emotionally] if the people were here that made the nutribullet, what i would say to them is thank you for giving me my life back, thank you for allowing me to enjoy my family more... thanks for taking away the pain. where have you been all my life? [laughs] >> we all know how important the immune system is. it is the key. your immune system determines
11:12 am
what belongs and what doesn't. when it finds something bad, it releases white blood cells, and white blood cells detoxify our body. they also help us fight illness, pain, even disease. our ability to create and release white blood cells is affected by a lot of things. it's affected by a lack of sleep, stress, it's especially affected by a lack of nutrition. if we can increase our absorption from our food and nourish our immune system directly, then our bodies can handle practically anything. the nutribullet is designed to help us do just that. >> for the past two years, i haven't been very healthy. unfortunately i was diagnosed with cancer. so, for the past two years, i haven't been very healthy and i've been feeling overall pretty crummy. lost every ounce of my hair-- i lost every hair on my head and then i just covered my head up with wigs, but, you know,
11:13 am
at the end of the day when you're taking your wig off and you have to see the result of the chemotherapy, it's really hard, you know, on your psyche. i was amazed at how quickly i saw results from the nutribullet. i was so excited, because to feel it after the second nutriblast was a miracle to me. i was so excited. one of the best things about the nutribullet is that it's not a blender. it's something that pulverizes everything that you put in it and you're extracting the nutrients out of these whole foods, so you're getting the maximum benefit by everything that you're putting in there. and probably about three weeks into the program, my hair just went through this growth spurt, and people were asking me, you know, what happened, because i didn't have a whole lot of hair before i started. i was just telling somebody, i started this year off fighting for my life... i'm ending the year feeling better than i've felt in years. totally given me hope, you know, and i didn't have that and i just feel wonderful... [emotionally] and i am so
11:14 am
grateful for everything you've done-- thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. you guys are awesome and i hope that this can help other people. >> one of the greatest keys to bolstering your immune system is hidden inside the foods that we buy every day. what we have to do is unlock those valuable nutrients so that we can actually absorb them. this can help change your life. in fact, it could actually help save your life. >> announcer: over the last 30 years, we have become the most overfed yet undernourished nation on the planet, leading to a modern-day epidemic of obesity, high blood pressure, stress, depression and more. we're not getting healthier, we're getting sicker, and it comes down to one simple need: nutrient absorption. we need to increase the nutritional power of the foods we eat every day to dramatically change the way we look and feel... and the great news is now we can! from the makers of the original magic bullet, introducing the nutribullet, the superfood nutrition extractor.
11:15 am
with the nutribullet, you can turn ordinary food into superfood that now absorbs easily into your body's system so you can live a longer, healthier, more active life. all this food is loaded with essential nutrition, and the only way to get all of it is to break down, pulverize and open up the food's hidden nutrition on a cellular level. this process is called nutrition extraction. look: even expensive blenders just mix things around, they don't break things down, and with juicing, most of the valuable nutrition and fiber is just thrown away. but the nutribullet is different-- watch. start with some spinach for fiber, banana for potassium, add some berries for essential antioxidants, then almonds and flax seeds for omega-3 oils, add a little water, and watch how the power of the nutribullet completely breaks everything down, extracting all the essential nutrition. look, even the almonds and flax seeds have been broken down to fit through this strainer, unlike traditional blenders that leave everything behind. the secret of the nutribullet is its powerful 600-watt motor, combined with bullet-exclusive
11:16 am
cyclonic action that forces everything through the turbo extractor blades turning at an incredible 10,000 r.p.m. to break down and pulverize the stems, seeds, and skins, where most of the essential nutrition lies, taking ordinary fresh foods and turning them into superfoods to give you the strength, energy and vitality for a full active life, whatever your age. juicers make juice, blenders make smoothies, but the nutribullet makes supercharged, superfood nutriblasts, and by drinking just one nutriblast a day, you can supercharge your body, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and superboost your energy levels to feel better than you have in years, without taking prescription pills, without any side effects. just one a day can change your life. we've all bought expensive blenders and juicers and we all know the problem: they're just too much trouble to put together, and clean them once and you'll never want to clean them again, but the nutribullet takes seconds to use and seconds to clean. watch: just load your ingredients into the cup, twist on the extractor blade, pop it onto the power base, and watch
11:17 am
how the nutribullet blasts ordinary foods into superfoods in an instant, then just separate, throw in the dishwasher or give it a quick rinse and you're ready to go again in seconds. how easy is that? and with nearly twice the power of these other machines, the nutribullet is less than half the size. there's no other machine like it. the nutribullet comes with a supersized 24-ounce pitcher, with the same size and capacity of this full-size blender, to make supercharged nutriblasts the whole family can share to kick-start their day. it also comes with two single-serve 18-ounce mugs, so everyone gets to enjoy their own personal favorite nutriblasts. just twist on the customized handled lip ring and your nutriblast is ready to go when you are. you also get the superfood milling blade that instantly grinds and pulverizes nuts, seeds, grains, raw chocolate and more for super-nutritious, super-delicious energy bars. you also get the superfood recipe book, packed full of delicious recipe combinations the whole family will love. you could spend up to a thousand dollars on these big, bulky

the vitamin c brothers-- lemon and lime-- the anti-inflammatory enzyme bromelain, found in grapefruit and pineapple, apples with their malic acid, which cuts right into arthritis, the anti-inflammatory omega-3 inside the flax seeds, and my personal favorite, turmeric. turmeric is probably the most powerful anti-inflammatory food you can find in your local grocery store. you ready to try this? >> woman: yes. >> you just make and you drink. so easy. so let's give it a try. >> woman: o.k. >> wow, that's powerful. i don't know if you guys know this, but both my parents are medical doctors. my mom told me that health is our greatest asset. >> woman: absolutely. >> so, let's toast to the best health ever-- cheers. >> bravo. >> cheers. >> i've had migraines most of my life where, um, there's times where just keeping my eyes open
11:22 am
is, is very painful. um, basically, being put in a dark room, laying in a bed with your eyes closed would be the only relief i would get from a migraine. once a week i would suffer from a migraine. since incorporating the nutriblast i haven't had one headache, not one migraine. the nutribullet is different because it extracts all the nutrients from the fruits and vegetables and nuts, and i think everybody should do it because you just feel great. i've never felt this good in my life, never. never. >> ladies and gentlemen, we all know that what we eat is important, but how we eat it may even be more important. if you're eating healthy, good-for-you salads, you might only be absorbing a fraction of the available nutrition. by making the amazing nutrition contained at the cellular level of these foods available to you, you'll absorb them, and then you'll feel a huge difference in how you look and

[cc] [♪...] >> announcer: introducing a powerful new tool. wood. metal. tile. any material, any time. introducing the new bladerunner from rockwell, making your jobs faster, easier and safer. >> hi, i'm dean johnson. >> and i'm miriam johnson. >> for the past several years, we've used hundreds of tools on our home improvement television series hometime.
11:31 am
>> today, we're gonna take some time away from the set to show you an exciting new tool that we've discovered. >> this is called the bladerunner and it's made by rockwell, a company known for solid, reliable tools. >> how many times have you needed to make just a real simple cut? >> and how do you go about making that simple cut? well, typically you set up the sawhorses, get an extension cord, find the circular saw. you do it all out there so you don't make a mess, because once you make a cut, you have to clean everything back up again. we've done it many times. it can be a bit of a hassle. >> yes, and it can be just as hard with a jigsaw or a table saw. but today, we're going to show you how the rockwell bladerunner solves all of that. [whoosh] >> announcer: the rockwell bladerunner is one of the safest, most versatile tools you can own. in the past, you've had to have separate saws for wood, metal and tile. with the bladerunner, you can cut all three by simply changing the blades. changing blades takes less than three seconds. you can go from wood to metal or from metal to tile in one simple motion. other tools are limited to straight cuts only. with the bladerunner, you have
11:32 am
no limitations. you can make straight cuts, curved cuts or any other kind of cut in nearly all types of materials. and even better, the vacuum hose attachment allows you to hook up any shop vacuum directly to the bladerunner, eliminating all the mess. there's no cleanup necessary. every project has a few difficult cuts that can slow you down. the versatility of the bladerunner allows you to solve these problems quickly and easily. [whoosh] the rockwell bderunner is one of the most versatile saws you can own. the feature-packed rockwell bladerunner comes with a stainless steel work surface, an adjustable safety guard that covers the blade, a blade storage drawer, a combination miter gauge for angled cuts and rip fence for long straight cuts, variable speed for controlled cuts, and inside is rockwell's highest-quality, contractor-grade motor. with the bladerunner, you won't need a workbench. with the optional wall mount, the bladerunner mounts directly to your wall. it's convenient and it saves garage space.
11:33 am
the bladerunner is also portable. it can be removed from the wall in one simple motion and can easily be transported to the job site. [whoosh] not only is the bladerunner more versatile than your other tools, but it's also more safe. holding material with one hand and handling a saw with the other can be dangerous. with the bladerunner, you can keep both hands on your work. it's safer and your cuts are more accurate. the bladerunner is definitely a tool you'll want to have in your shop or garage. [whoosh] >> we're here in our garage setting to show you some of the exciting things the bladerunner can do. but first, we got to get rid of this guy. >> o.k. >> off we go. >> oh, would you look at that? >> the rockwell bladerunner can be mounted to the wall; you don't need a workbench underneath it. >> that's going to free up a lot of workspace. >> and it's very handy. it's right here, it's plugged in and it's always ready to go whenever you need it. >> there's no setup time; you just walk right up to the machine, flip it on and make the cut. [whirring]
11:34 am
>> now realize, this is 5/8 inch material. show them what it does with 2x material. >> piece of cake. [whirring] >> all right, nice job on the thick, straight cuts, but bladerunner can also do some very fancy scrollwork. let me show you what i'm talking about. [whirring] just watch this guy as it goes anywhere on this board it really feels like going. [whirring] look at the nice clean work that gives you. it's just great to have that type of ability sitting around the garage. >> the bderunner can solve several problems for homeowners. the first thing is, one tool does the work of three or four, so you're no longer looking for storage space in your garage. the second thing is the unique wall mount system that allows it to be off of your workbench and out of the way. and the third thing, and probably the most important, is you now have two hands free to hold onto your workpiece as opposed to holding with one hand and cutting with another saw. >> the bladerunner allows you to take the piece and concentrate
11:35 am
on the cut, where you control the workpiece instead of having to control the saw. >> we have a professional custom woodcraft business. we use the bladerunner for cutting out intricate shapes, scroll cutting, like flowers, leaves, animals, custom signs. it's a very versatile tool. it'll scroll, it'll rip, it'll crosscut. it will do all those wonderful things. [whoosh] >> not only does bladerunner cut through wood, but it can also cut through metal. so the first thing we'll have to do is change our blade. it's very easily done. before we do that, we pull out our safety key, lift up our arm and simply pop this guy. that's all that's involved. now we slide in our metal blade. there's a handy little blade storage area right down here. pull this back, lock it in, we are ready to go. >> this is a 16-gauge steel plate. we'll make a nice curved cut here. [whirring, ♪...] check that out. >> now, you have to ask yourself
11:36 am
the question: do you have all the tools in your garage to handle all those different functions? i mean, we're talking about cutting through wood, scrolling through wood, scrolling through metal, but it will also cut through tile. >> hey, not any tile. this is stone tile. this is travertine tile and of course, the very first thing i need to do is-- thank you-- change out my blade. go from our metal blade to our ceramic. thank you. very simple, just pops right out and pops back in. and we're good to go. [whirring, ♪...] beautiful. now, how many tools do you have that can do all that? >> oftentimes, people will buy a tool that they'll use only once or twice. that's not going to happen with the bladerunner. it cuts such a wide varity of materials with different blades that you're always going to find a project in your garage that you can use this tool. >> we like using the bladerunner because when we use our jigsaw, we can't keep a straight cut.
11:37 am
but with the bladerunner, it's got a nice, big, flat table that's easy to make great precise cuts when you push it with both hands. [whoosh] >> the bladerunner's perfect for all kinds of projects. this complex garage organizer was made entirely with the bladerunner. >> a little project to do in the garage here. i was pretty impressed with the fact that i got to use the bladerunner here. some of the angled cuts that i was able to get very easily was the notched-out cuts on my shelves, the small, little cleats, the 45s that you can see helping to hold up my shelves. i was also able to do a 20-degree cut for this bracket to hold up the shelf. i was pretty impressed. but i also got to do a 3/4-inch radius cut with this same saw along with a seven-inch radius cut with some of the attachments that it has. you can hook up a vacuum, which keeps the dust out of your way as you're cutting. pretty impressed. good little tool.

11:42 am
to use. it's always set up and it's always ready to go. [whoosh] >> if you've ever installed wall tile, you know you're going to have to cut around a receptacle or a light switch. and you know it's probably going to be a difficult cut. >> especially when the receptacle lands right in the middle of the stone tile. i've made a couple of pilot holes in the corner where the receptacle will go. now, one thing you'll notice, i've hooked up a vacuum to our bladerunner here. we'll show you in just a couple of seconds how nicely that works. so the bladerunner allows you to slide your piece of work right over the top of the blade like this and then we'll lock everything into position. we can go ahead and fire up the saw. [whirring] now one thing you'll notice is how well that vacuum works; it just sucks up everything that's being cut. without that vacuum, a big pile of dust from the tile would be building up right on top of the line that i need to see to make the cut. o.k., with two sides cut, we turn off the saw and reposition everything. just slide it up like so. and using our second pilot hole, put that right over the top of our blade again and lock
11:43 am
everything down in position once again. [whirring] another thing too is by vacuuming all that dust away, it really makes our cleanup once we're done with the job very minimal. [whirring] o.k., there we go. now we'll raise our arm again and take a look to see what we've got. now the tricky part about this operation is this is a very thin piece of stone. with stone being as brittle as it is, that's very easy to break but easy to do with the bladerunner. let's see how it looks. there we have it, a perfect fit. we put our faceplate over the top of it; a thing of beauty. now, how many tools in your garage can do that? [whoosh] >> so i'm working on a home improvement project where i'm going to put an extension on my windowsill so that i can put some potted plants here, 'cause they get really great light through this window. not only am i going to need to cut my wood and notch it to fit up here, but i'm also going to need to do some scrollwork to get around the preexisting molding. the bladerunner ended up being a perfect tool to use. it was just really simple, really fast and i think it looks beautiful. >> so i wanted to build this dog house for my dog toby and it was
11:44 am
really great to use the bladerunner because it enabled me to cut all sorts of angles when i cut these slats and they fit just perfectly in the base of this dog house. the bladerunner was the perfect tool for the job. >> the rockwell bladerunner is the ultimate project saw. >> but it's not just for do-it-yourselfers that love the bladerunner; working professionals are making good use of it too. [whoosh] >> today we're going to be using the bladerunner to build some shelving. one thing i might want to add: we are inside the house. thanks to this vacuum attachment, there is very little sawdust. this miter gauge that i'm using is what i'm using to push through and that gets you your square cuts. set it on zero, you get your square cut. you set it on 60, you get your 60-degree angle. this is giving me clean, square cuts every time. [♪...] this saw with this miter gauge cuts a very clean, straight, square cut. as you've noticed, this is my tool bench. this table here is big enough so that when you are making some cuts like this, this is great to support your work. there are a lot of professionals
11:45 am
out there, there are a lot of tools that we use and this is one tool that i must say makes things a little easier. it's kind of compact, works well in small areas. for instance, we're in a kitchen. it's not like a table saw, a big bulky machine that you literally have to drag around. it's not like a band saw, which, quite frankly, is a little bit more dangerous than this. it's just phenomenal how this thing is set up. all right, that'd be about it. all these precise cuts-- square cuts-- done with the bladerunner.

[whoosh] >> now here's something else we really like about bladerunner. with bladerunner, you can make your own high-quality picture frames. this picture frame was made with the bladerunner. >> now, as a parent myself, i love to frame pictures of my family and with the bladerunner, i can do that for a fraction of the cost. >> you use the optional bladerunner picture frame cutter to cut the perfect angles for your frame.

[whirring] >> now we're showing you how to make a picture frame,
11:51 am
but obviously what we're doing is basically miter cuts. and there's probably a lot of other areas in your house where you can use miter cuts. for instance, if you're doing any door or window casing, it's perfect for that. if you're putting up any cabinets, there's all kinds of miter cuts for the trim. and if you're doing any type of wainscoting, any panel treatment, again, a lot of miter cuts. >> right. so i have two pieces cut here, and as you can see... >> that is a nice-looking fit. now, one thing to consider: many times, frames cost over a hundred dollars. using material, it probably runs $10 to $15 at your local retailer. you do a couple of frames like that and you've paid for your bladerunner. >> my name is terry, i'm a wood flooring contractor and i just used the bladerunner to make some 45-degree miter cuts and i think it did a great job.
