squeezed through the iron bars along pennsylvania avenue. the secret service spokesman said we will wait until he learn to talk to him to question him. in lieu of that he got . neil: jets, yes, troops no, are we delays baghdad still falling? welcome, everybody, i'm neil cavuto. and u.s. f-18 jet fighters pounding on isis rebel positions in northern iraq today. they stopped a sunni advance in its tracks, but since the president's indicated we won't be doing this for long, how long before the sunni insurgents resume tracks? put another way, shaken but not stirred. all of this to what end? markets seem the air strikes represent progress, what do
they know? when is the last time you've been in a bunker with a broker? i prefer this guy, former army vice chief of staff retired four-star general jack kane, good to have you, that is the fear, i guess, after the air strike campaign, they're back to doing what they're doing because it's apparently a shelf life on it, what do you think? >> absolutely. first of all, the air strike campaign as you noted is so restricted, they can pretty much do what they want right now in northern iraq. the fact of the matter is the president said he only wants air strikes done on the conditions that isis is interfering with the airdrop, or that isis is threatening irbil where we have true presence. that means that isis has total freedom to do whatever want its right now in any part of kurdistan, in any part of northern iraq, which is quite extraordinary.
neil: where are we going here, general? i mentioned how the markets were moving up on this because it looks like -- there were a lot of factors, i hasten to add, this looks like it's going well. i think markets get caught up in the moment and it's guys like you have a sweeping sense of history know and the military matters who urge caution. so are they getting ahead of themselves? >> yeah, absolutely. what's happening here, isis is on the move. they intend to front the caliphate. they want to push back the peshmerga so they can control a political infrastructure in the northern tigris river valley. that's the mosul dam up to the northwest and the oil fields down the southeastern part of the river valley. that's what they're interested in. also out west in the euphrates river valley where fallujah and
ramada are they will toughen that up. they don't intend to control all of baghdad but want to threaten and intimidate it to the point where possibly may be able to topple the government and force the withdrawal of the united states. that is next phase but yet to come. neil: you know, the iraqi army doesn't inspire much confidence, and in a lot of the incidence where towns and cities have fallen, we've seen time and again that the army vastly outnumbers them in a number of the cases, up and run. what's to say after the air strikes are over, or whatever we do, are limited forces in there now, it's just delaying the inevitable? >> not really. it depends on the president of the united states and what kind of political moral he wants to exercise. neil: you indicated in prior
appearances on this and the fox news network, very limited appetite for the war in the first place. and i doubt, general, he would want to really get himself bogged down in something, just an air campaign for very long. >> well, if he had started the air campaign when mosul toppled in june, we would not be dealing with humanitarian relief and not dealing with isis at irbil. they would have been stopped. but this is what he'll be forced to do next. if isil or isis comes to baghdad as we suspect they will, we have a significant presence, we have a presence there with troops. he already indicated in last night's broadcast to the american people that he intends to defend u.s. presence in iraq have to deploy air strikes again in the defense of baghdad. those air strikes would be better coordinated because i assume by then we would have air ground controllers to facilitate the use of the air strikes and make them more
accurate. neil: you don't take it as a given that the country just dissolves and that baghdad quickly falls, we could prevent that. i guess what i'm asking, general, is that can we do that without boots on the ground? can we do that even with a sustained air campaign, for which many others see limited, you know, support? >> yes, neil, we can stop the seizure and control of baghdad with air strikes and air ground controllers facilitating that. we cannot defeat isis in my judgment, drive it back across the syrian border, without a significant air campaign in syria and northern iraq and also use of our classified special operation forces to target their leaders. they would be combat troops, operating probably out of irbil or clandestine location to facilitate. that i'm not an advocate of conventional combat troops,
young we should go back in and do that, the administration would never do that under any circumstances. we can stop the seizure and control of baghdad using coordinated air strikes. we can't drive isis back into syria without a much more significant commitment on the part of the united states. we need our strategy, our allies cooperating with us, and not just about the military. here's something you would appreciate. we know which banks they're using and we know the portfolio managers who are doing the transactions, they should be targeted, we should take that money. and as many of the nonmilitary things we can do that we've had great success with against al qaeda in the past. neil: depends whether we have the will to do that, and i appreciate the fact you're nerdy enough to know the financial connection, general. it's always a pleasure sir, thank you very much. >> good talking to you, neil. neil: general keane, he is right there are a lot of
financial underpinnings and where the money is cycled through. working on ways to make illegals come into the country. why a record number of people are leaving this country? what's going on? next. thank ythank you for defendiyour sacrifice. and thank you for your bravery. thank you colonel. thank you daddy. military families are uniquely thankful for many things, the legacy of usaa auto insurance can be one of them. if you're a current or former military member or their family, get an auto insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life.
. neil: never mind all the people trying to come in. you ever think about the people trying to get the heck out. new report shows a record number of americans are renouncing citizenship and heading overseas for the lower tax bills and overall lower angst. not because u.s. citizens, a lot of companies doing the same thing. all-stars, all here as well. what is going on. >> just look at what companies are saying, not just the irs, it's also the nlrb, also unjust regulations they feel from an irrational regulations chasing them. what strikes me as also that congress acts shocked that companies are moving overseas, given we know we're one of the only industrialized nations to
tax profits when. congress and guys should realize the tax writing committee members are working for the likes of ge or gm, i sat in irs meetings with companies who come into ask for tax breaks. there's no way that congress should act like this is a surprise to them. neil: i can understand the companies and we know the games go back and forth. but individuals, it takes a lot to get an individual to say i'm leaving, i don't know where they go. numbers are significant enough to say this is worrisome. >> and started about ten years ago, yes, you're absolutely right, there was a beginning burgeoning trend of individuals renouncing citizenship in the united states, because they saw that the only way they're going pay for that debt is go after individuals and companies. when you look at it, the president right now is saying listen, these guys are corporate deserters.
he's calling them fat cats. when three years ago it was all about jobs. neil: icalorcally challengeed. >> he is. it's such a false story that the companies are paying effective rate of 17. all in it's like 30, 40, 50% and much higher than the european counterparts, companies are trying to cut tax bills. >> one of the things i heard about the individuals that decided to up and leave it's not just always the taxes it's the regulations and the hassles and might be an even steven move to go to canada. because canada doesn't have the regulations, nova scotia has the big draw. what do you make of that? >> one thing we should note is this is not the norm. when we talk about individual growth in terms of americans loaving the country up over 200%, we're talking about a
couple of -- just a couple of thousands of americans. so less than 1/10 percent of the population. neil: why do they go? for the reasons that lizzie was stateing? >> of course. the government overreaching, big brother involved in every aspect of our life and business and the onerous tax and regulation policies that we have. where does it go? where is the better opportunity? certainly not in europe and asia, perhaps canada or australia, but the pickings are thin. neil: certainlyfrance. [ laughter ] >> what's going on, and how big a deal is it? >> we've seen this from the left all the time. they fight to have punitive taxation and decry those who avoid the taxation. edwardo saverin, the facebook co-founder made a good amount of money, left the country to flee 70 million in extra taxation, and the left decried him. they said it was like independence day when an alien
came in, invaded and left. neil: they loved him in pre-exodus tape. >> that's right. you can't put a ball and chain on individuals and try to keep them here. neil: something we should worry about, bernard? >> buy the tax cheats, tax avoiders, we don't need nor do we want them here. they are clearly leaving to avoid paying taxes. >> legal. >> it's perfectly legal, disgusting and morally reprehensible. >> change the law. >> no change the law. these people benefitted from an america that people have paid taxes to for over 200 years, they created opportunities based on the incredible society we have here. if they're not willing to contribute their fair share, good-bye. neil: they say they've given more than their fair share. >> good riddance, we don't need them. >> 40% is not enough? >> you know what i love about
the argument. here, neil, europe is going in the opposite direction of the u.s., the u.k. is a tax haven. you don't hear the people in government there saying we have given you so many benefits from government, you should stay and pay higher taxes. they're going the opposite direction and cutting rates down, that's what's happening in europe of all places. neil: i wish we had more time. we do not. a broadcast network interrupted kate upton for iraq? what boob made that decision! you come back. i had no idea i had shingles.
there was like an eruption on my skin and burning. i'd lift my arm and the pain back here was excruciating. when i went to the doctor his first question was "did you have chickenpox?" i thought it was something that, you know, old people got. yyyup. with xfinity internet soyour family can use all their devices at once. works anywhere in the house. even in the garage.

. neil: bumping kate upton for iraq? and air striking out. the details are coming up. you need help paying for kid's college, you might want to teach them how to play basketball. ncaa giving the power to give out bigger scholarships and play award stipends to players. many are saying this could be paving the way to pay college athletes period. to two former division 1 college basketball players on how this could be a real game-changer. ala brown. >> you got it right. neil: kyle harrington says it is a very big mistake. both former division 1 players themselves. and i'm sure they got money on the side, whatever they were doing those days. that was then, this is now. you look at this and hear what's happening, what do you think? >> well, here's the thing, i don't know about the pay to play situation because there's
a lot of different levels in the complications on how this works. what do you believe in, however, is that the ncaa should give athletes a stipend, something maybe once a week or once a month to give them extra cash so the athletes can pay for the basic necessities. as a former athlete, it's hard to get summer jobs when you're working all of these things, all of the practices you have, so the problem started many years ago when the booster programs were hiring these athletes and paying them an absurd amount of money and the ncaa went way too far the other way and as a result it's hard for athletes to make money. give them a stipend, that's what i think. neil: what do you think, kyle? >> listen, you can't give these athletes money in addition to scholarships, especially at certain schools, and not at other schools. so yes, i'm going pay my player, if he goes to the university of texas or alabama but not it is i -- sienna or
st. bonaventure. i did not get paid to play basketball at princeton, i wanted to and folks wanted to keep the focus on academics. neil: news flash, you were at princeton! [ laughter ]. >> many years ago, neil, but i think that we need to keep the focus on academics because -- neil: what i'm saying is your parents and you, that was -- you were already making an investment there that would pay off because that's obviously a pretty good school. taking nothing away from ayla. what kyle raised there, what you do for one, you better do for all. if you're only in the top conferences and the others don't, you talk about something that sounds unfair? >> yeah, no, it is unfair, that's why even some of the athletes need to come to the table and start the discussions
with the ncaa on a much deeper, deeper level. i think if we go too quickly into this, it's going create the haves versus the have nots. >> what did you get when you were playing? did you get a scholarship? i assume you did, right? >> di, yes, i got offered a scholarship at the age of 15 years old. neil: good, rub it in, that's fine, that's fine. you were good at. this all right, i wasn't. would a stipend have mattered to you? what if you don't need a stipend, right? >> it does matter when have you mandatory summer school and workouts twice a day and film, et cetera, some of the players don't come from families that have a lot of means. to go buy socks or new shoes, they don't have the money. with the extra stipend it would solve issues and allow athletes to go out to dinner not at the
dining facility once a week and be able to pay for stuff like that. i'm not talking a lot of money. neil: it could be a slippery slope, that's all i'm saying. >> it i think it could be a slippery slope. please don't mistake what i'm saying, the obligation of a division 1 player in any sport is tremendous in addition to school. i mean it is a full-time job, three, four hours a day to practice and traveling all the time, it becomes very, very difficult to get a part-time job. in my case, i delivered pizzas, neil, in addition to playing basketball, which was great. i would eat every other slice i delivered so i was eating and -- [ laughter ] >> and i was making money. but it is a very difficult transition. neil: guys, thank you very, very much. if everyone is paid you won't distinguish between professional athletes the way
the world is gone. i envy you, i was not one of the cool kids. why you should hear my issues now? say it ain't so, joe, joe piscopo watching what's going on and he's ready to let it rip. you won't believe what's got him upset? joe's kind of odd. when folks think about what they get from alaska, they think salmon and energy. but the energy bp produces up here creates something else as well: jobs all over america. engineering and innovation jobs. advanced safety systems & technology. shipping and manufacturing. across the united states, bp supports more than a quarter million jobs. when we set up operation in one part of the country, people in other parts go to work. that's not a coincidence. it's one more part of our commitment to america. [ male announcer ] it's one of the most amazing things we build and it doesn't even fly.
are in the food business, in the restaurant business, so any, i'm not against, it don't miss understand, neil, but we need a server, you need that experience, you need to have -- neil: depends on the server. i was a waiter. i thought a very good one. >> so was i. i thought you were a good one. neil: my point is it's not also the experience of people. get what they want. >> really good point, the difference is with good management and assiduous follow-up of the staff that distinguishes one restaurant company from another restaurant company. it's our obligation to not just hire anyone, anywhere, any time. neil: what do you think of competitors exploring this? >> exploring the tablets? applebee's is exploring the tablet. neil: is that a threat to the minimum wage if you do this? >> not at all. [ laughter ] >> look at me. >> i'm staring at you. i'm staring at you. neil: if they double minimum wage would do you this?
>> in new york state, we're an anomaly, it wouldn't impact us to the same degree that would. neil: if there is a tablet, would you look more seriously at that? >> in all fairness, i'm a great believer in the server experience. neil: you're also a great businessman, and you're going to get lost. >> that's where the rubber meets the road. neil: you're going to do it. >> no, no no. it would depend what do i lose, everything in life, neil, is a compromise, what do you lose against what do you gain? do you lose that long-term relationship between the guest and our servers to the sales. neil: what he's saying is this might happen as just a cost savings. we see it. we would never see the automation on the automobile contrary to what you might think.
there were automobiles. [ laughter ] >> all-always just people on the floor, now it's a lot of machines. we've seen that. it's not a stretch to think robots dominate a lot of this. >> i think back to milton friedman and said why are they all using shovels to build this canal instead of machines? they said we want to create jobs. why don't they use spoons instead of shovels, then? that's the devolving point that the president is trying to get to by saying we can't automade it because we want to create jobs. congress is good, that's the bottom line of all this. neil: we will force the issue? >> i think the issue should be forced but issue should be forced in the education realm. i'm a huge believer in technological innovation. we can stop, it it would be foolhardy and wrong. what we need to do is recognize this puts new challenges into education system and creates opportunities. as robotics explodes, the
marketplace to create and serve the robots is huge. neil: would you welcome tablets at restaurants because a lot of the guys who run them can't afford them? >> if i welcome them? neil: yes or no. >> i've had a number of delicious meals at your restaurants and the service is good. neil: absolutely. lindsey, that's the thing, to make a larger point here, i don't know, all of you are fit. if i go, there's a roy rogers on the turnpike in new jersey. whole thing is practically automated. you get your own drinks, burgers, you practically make them. and now they have automatic checkout at this one particular facility, and i'm telling i don't encounter one person along the whole process. that's ou as it is now, and nothing has been changed as far as the cost of the workers. what i'm saying we're getting there and we are pushing our way there whether people like
it or not. what say you? >> fine line, for the individual directly being replaced at that restaurant by a robot or tablet. this is a step in the right direction. longer term on aggregate as we develop more technology as we get more automated in everyday processes, this would increase production and capacity and lower costs for everyone putting more money back in consumer and investors' pockets to grow and develop other areas of stroh. longer term, this is a net benefit for the economy. we've had the argument for years now. look at toll system it went away from individual toll booth attendance to the automated system. neil: the individuals in toll booths were much more mres an where. do we go with this? >> can you drag your automated car through the automatic toll booth to the automatic roy rogers and you could go on automatic. neil: there you go, exactly. >> i think the space is
different. there's three spaces in the restaurant business. the fast food business lends itself for quick service, by definition, roy rogers is quick service. anything that enhances quicker service cost aside is important. we're not in quick service, we're in casual dining, no tablecloths, paper napkins but has to be interaction, can't be sanitized. automation sanitize itself. neil: balancing tool. >> it enhances experience. neil: understood, understood. in my business, never going to be max headroom because, a robot would read a prompter. [ laughter ] >> robot neil. neil: could you move up here. don't think we're losing hollywood? listen to james woods. the actors rant that might, might, might be giving the president a little bit of pause. joe piscopo says watch, listen and learn.
my mother made the best toffee in the world. it's delicious. so now we've turned her toffee into a business. my goal was to take an idea and make it happen. i'm janet long and i formed my toffee company through legalzoom. i never really thought i would make money doing what i love. we created legalzoom to help people start their business and launch their dreams. go to legalzoom.com today and make your business dream a reality.
. neil: say it ain't so, joe, actor, comedian, radio host joe piscopo. i hope you do this a lot more. i love this guy. hollywood bailing on the white house. james woods, the latest actor to go on a twitter rant tweeting this about the high-speed rail slow progress. another obama pipe dream up in smoke and 11 billion dollars of our money with it #obama fails again. this reduced us to say stuff, right? we've got woods, kelsey grammer, stacey dash, and many, many others who might not be forming a conga line but it's not your typical hollywood chorus line. >> you asked me about hollywood, what am i on the a-list or the b-list?
i'm on the wait list. neil: you mire closest link, my friend. >> are you kidding me? you had a lot of disgruntled former democrats that have become republicans and conservatives, and the arnolds led the way, ronald reagan and i love arnold by the way. big schwarzenegger fan. >> you know him personally. >> at least my baby-sitter was good looking. neil: stop, stop, stop, stop, back to the subject. more people in hollywood is it that monolith that it was? >> i think we're very disappointing, i sit before you as a registered democrat as most of hollywood is. neil: as i listen to you, i would never know that. >> on am 970 the answer i'm becoming an independent and disillusioned democrat. that's what's happening. neil: power ratings? >> no. i have to tell you, i can vent
for a second. >> go ahead. >> what is frustrating when you are a democrat and socially do i lean left a little bit, and have you in the white house for all intents and purposes a young black man. i help the boys and girls club of new jersey, not once has barack obama walked the streets of camden, new jersey or walked the streets, go to rahm emanuel's town, chicago, he could make such an impact. neil: the election did that? >> he never went out. neil: bloom is off the rose for. >> you it is. that's what's happening in hollywood as well. neil: enough? >> what? neil: are enough doing it, i see a few. >> no, you know what's telling are the big stars like the george clooneys you don't see coming out. i don't see oprah coming out anymore. so yeah, i think it's telling at this point. also they know obama in
hollywood, they know when it's over, it's done and they would be running for the hills. neil: they are a phony little lot. billionaire investor peter field says he refuses to invest in business guys who wear suits. i swear i've seen this guy wear suits. having said, that that's one of the things that led him to facebook and all that appeal is, i don't like them being corporate. >> he said he doesn't -- if someone comes to him without a suit oopen collar, even in a hoodie, he said, he would rather take a picture of a kid in the hoodie. i feel funny because i'm an old-fashioned guy, i'm a dinosaur, i always wear a suit. that is catching on. a lot of people are starting to wear hoodies in the business. neil: really? >> can you see as a matter of fact, there's like donald trump was in a hoodie. there you go right there. [ laughter ] >> i just think there are certain things that guys our age should not do.
we just don't get it. you know? >> i had to do that for you, sorry. neil: that's what i love about him, walking san clemente, wing tipped shoes, full suit. look at that. if you think about, it everyone whether it's apple or -- they're all walking, the dark sweater, no tie. >> all the big money guys are without the tires, they don't have to. >> what are we doing? neil: twitter erupting after this interruption, take a look. >> you literally walked out of my trailer with flip-flops and a robe and went to starbucks, and you are so nice and so real and i thank you for being here with me. >> i have a dress underneath. >> this is an abc news special report. crisis in iraq. neil: really? kate upton bumped for iraq?
get a load of this. viewers on twitter railing against the timing of all of this. and the boob of executive responsible no doubt out on his rumpus. what do you think of that? >> i don't think i'm going to go up against michael strahan, the all-time nfl sacks leader, i wouldn't cut him off for nothing. neil: he was not the issue. fox alert. >> you know what? it's inexcusable that people don't find it more interesting. it's embarrassing, the fact they got upset, they're going to bump kate upton in a daytime show when there is genocide happening. you got to weigh it out. kate upton, genocide. neil: we know it's on all the news channels, we know we can find it if we want to, we want kate. >> first time president obama does something, something in office, it should upstage upton in a second. it was the right thing to do.
neil: you would interrupt kate upton? >> no, i don't understand any of that. i'm so news oriented now, and we have to make all the social media has to be right in line with all the news that's happening now. so the young people, all the youngsters that want to see the kate upton stuff get more involved politically. neil: look what we're doing right now? >> with all the graphics, i love it. neil: can we superimpose kate upton over? >> no, you go to a rest stop. i heard you in the previous segment. neil: you know the roy rogers. >> yes. neil: yes. >> neil cavuto in a rest stop. neil: what is it? >> my only picture. that is my goal in life. i want a rest stop named after me. neil: and we don't just sell tripe, and we don't just debase ourselves by splitting the screen and showing kate upton.
>> the roy rogers is off the first exit. neil: thank you. joe, you are great. >> neil, always a pleasure. thanks for listening to the show. neil: that's why i think you push it for ratings. >> it's a very legitimate argument but you know what? i don't, i'm getting more conservative and upset in my old age. no one is in charge. i can talk to but israel. neil: please don't. >> save it for the show. exactly. neil: don't i know. don't i know. he is the best. meanwhile does the white house have an i.t. department? more e-mails are missing and this means obamacare answers could be lost forever. my goodness! i'm j-a-n-e and i have copd. i'm d-a-v-e and i have copd. i'm k-a-t-e and i have copd, but i don't want my breathing problems to get in the way

neil: all right, in tonight's biz blitz, more e-mails getting blitzed from the top health and human services administrator. they're saying the e-mails were deleted by accident. we've had a lot of the so-called accidents. >> between the irs and the hhs this seems to be mo coming from the top and trickling down. i agree with congressman issa that 20 individuals violated federal record keeping laws. neil: a lot of conservatives are there forever, right? >> they ought to be, honestly a complete joke. whoever is held responsible should be held responsible and disciplined and should be clear procedures this doesn't happen. neil: wait, wait, wait, you're offended by this? >> you know why? the truth is obamacare has been a huge success. 8 million people signed up, a million more than target. the cost cutting is starting to
be bent. neil: didn't have insurance before? >> 8 million people signed for obamacare. quality of care is going to be better. >> getting in the way of the message. neil: lizzie, what do you think of that? >> the question is where are the e-mails and comes down to accountability. we're responsible for ourselves and have the accountability in our daily lives, at home, at work, where is the government's accountability? whether it's lost e-mails, misappropriated funds or outright fraud, i want the government to say look this is what happened, this went wrong, we're going to ensure this doesn't happen again. but no instead it's a cover-up, lies, deceit. i want the government to have accountability for this. neil: a lot of people in government seem to lose e-mails. >> they do. neil: i know here they have original e-mails from the late 90s. >> and contrary to what bernard s rollout of obamacare
