tv MONEY With Melissa Francis FOX Business May 5, 2015 2:00pm-3:01pm EDT
melissa: that's right lori rothman, thanks so much. for the first time isis claiming responsibility for a strike here at home. the attack occurred at a muhammad cartoon event. now isis is threatening there is more to come. "clinton cash," the tell-all book raising concerns about donations to the clinton foundation while hillary was secretary of state. it hits the shelves today. her team is fighting back. panera's problem his of healthier options. 150 ingredients off the menu. good health or just good marketing is? secrets a business that boasts about helping married people cheat, has big plans to go public even when they say it's not, it is always about melissa: crude awakens. oil rising above $60 a barrel are to the first time this year, hitting a five-month high.
let's go to energy trader phil flynn at cme. he is also a fox business contributor. phil this is significant right? >> it is very significant. what it is sending a message to bearish traders that oil prices can go down and they can go up. people have to realize, we significant change in the fundamentals when prices crash. billions of dollars of capital spending cuts, rig count cuts. and now, u.s. production falling. and that is one of the reasons we're really seeing this market turn around. melissa: a lot has to do with libya as well? >> i think libya is definitely the factor propelling us higher but there are other factors behind it as well. that data we saw out of europe earlier this morning about how strong their economy is if you remember, melissa when oil prices were crashing one of the reasons was that european oil demand was nonexistent. that is really going to bounce back in a big way. that takes away one of the big bearish arguments we've seen. on top of that we do have an
increase with geopolitical risk. we got a report out of saudi arabia they're cutting prices for u.s. buyers excuse me, raising prices. that is the first time they have done that for a while. melissa: what does it mean for prices at pump? because that is what people care about this time of the year. >> the bad news that prices at pump will definitely go up a couple of pennies. the good news, the price sensitivity of gasoline to oil is at the lowest level in probably 10 years. in fact if you look at the month of april, crude oil prices were up 25%. generally with a move like that you would see gasoline go up 75% of that. they have only gone up four cents. even though they will go higher it will not go as high as the price of crude is going, phil flynn, thank you very much. the response to "clinton cash," the tell-all book is hitting stores and hillary clinton campaign is fighting back. fox business's blake best of your memory man has the latest. how are they fighting back now. >> they are indeed, melissa. hillary clinton's released a highly produced 2 1/2 minute
video before most bookstores even opened their doors this morning. that video directly addressed the book "clinton cash" and author peter schweizer who detailed inflow of money to bill clinton and clinton foundation while hillary clinton was secretary of state. the video was narrated by clinton's press secretary brian fallon, that the book has farfetched and crazy conspiracy theories and written by a friend of the koch brother. >> the book is being debunked far and wide, full of sloppy research and attacks pulled out of thin air with no actual evidence. it is missing the most important thing of all, facts. >> that is some of the video. clinton's website was ready for the release of "clinton cash." it had a full-page, 10-point fact check. now clinton has yet to personally address the allegations in the book. it is possible she could today at some point during a campaign stop in nevada. yesterday, bill clinton, defended the foundation telling nbc news it had done nothing, quote, knowingly inappropriate. there are also questions about
hillary clinton's potential testimony on capitol hill coming up involving benghazi and her private email server. her attorney wrote to congressman trey gowdy yesterday, head of house select committee on benghazi that clinton would be available to testify at length, but only would do so once, as early as may 18th. the committee has yet to respond. a gowdy spokesperson told us today there was no update as of that point. melissa. melissa: all right, the response video and background music, odd. blake, thank you so much. warren buffett is betting on hillary clinton. the oracle of omaha speaking out on the 2016 race to our very own liz claman? >> i think she is most likely person to be president of the united states, elected in 2016. and i'm going to vote for her. melissa: hmmm. former secretary of state taking a hit in the polls though. still holding an edge over her potential gop rivals. this is according to the "wall street journal" here now is tony sayegh from jamestown associates and fox news contributor. simon constable from the
"wall street journal." rich lowery from the "national review." he is also a fox news contributor. rich, let me start with you, why is warren buffett loving hillary clinton right now? >> basically a democrat. i hope that is not really his reason for voting for her. he thinks she is going to win. actually it has been looking, hasn't been looking so great lately for her. we've seen a big erosion in the polls. some of which is inevitable when she stopped as secretary of state but some which is clearly driven by this awful narrative on emails and cash. melissa: i want to challenge you on that. simon, i think it is because he thinks she is going to win. i'm not sure he is necessarily devout democrat as he wants to back the winner. >> i think he wants to back the winner. i'm not saying if this happens, if there will be a quid pro quo if she wins. melissa: like what? what does warren buffett need from anybody. >> he likes to make money. he likes to have businesses that have little competition, very secure market space. maybe he is railroads don't need competition from a pipeline for
example. melissa: tony, what you do think about that? also the fact that yesterday he is saying that he is finally admitting that he understands that raising the minimum wage is going to cost jobs. he said he will write something about that soon. that is change of tune from what he is saying in the public. >> can you file that warren buffett too rich to care. he doesn't care about higher taxes on businesses and average people. he doesn't have to pay them. knows how to avoid them. doesn't care about raising minimum wage. doesn't hurt his business. rich's point warren buffett benefited in outsized way from obama policies. see clinton as natural extension of policies. simon is right, keystone one of the things many people believe he got in return supporting president obama to support his railroad invests of the that being said look at this poll, melissa. this is super important. important for viewers to understand. you don't look head-to-head numbers about hillary against republicans early on. you look other indicators like her favorability which is going down. like the trustworthy and honesty
question which she is around 35%. is hillary clinton going to be able to win when american people don't trust her around don't like her? that is a big many pro, the fact she is not thought of honest and straightforward, nobody cares. we don't expect our politicians to be honest and straightforward. i take point on negative numbers have jumped. 42% from 30 sick. that was just last month. that is big problem for for people who hate her. >> the last seven weeks are really bad. numbers on independents. her favorables in the independents are among the 30s. that is not a place they want to be. they're rebutting book with website and video. i think it is too late. i think narrative is already set for most people this was gross money-grubbing conduct. melissa: simon, do you agree with that? the video was ridiculous. what was the background music? so hokey. didn't respond. have all-out assault on your credibility and honesty an money
you have this guy in the background? >> truly false, why didn't they sue. why don't they sue for liable? this is spin. if it was truly false they would sue. melissa: thanks guys. isis claiming responsibility for the attack outside of a texas art show. the tear griffith group is offering no proof but warns that future attacks on the u.s. will be worse. fox news's jonathan hunt is in garland texas with the latest. what do we know about the isis claim? >> melissa, that isis claim came via its radio station al-bayan. in the message on that station they said, that the attack was carried out by two, as they put it quote, soldiers of the caliphate. now officials are looking into that claim and basically there are two options here. one of course it is true, they did direct the two shooters, elton simpson and nadir sufi. the other may well be it is
opportunistic claim to take responsibility for something that happened which they had nothing to do. they hoped by claiming responsibility they strike further fear into the hearts of america. officials are pouring through the details of that message. they're already pouring over the social media accounts of the two shooters, simpson and sufi. they have, as you. the apartment they shared in phoenix, arizona. at the moment we're hearing via the white house it is too early to say whether isis was directly connected to this attack. mess lissa. melissa: we heard from simpson's family, right? what did they say? >> elton simpson's family through the put out a statement through their attorney. they expressed sympathy for victims of attack. the statement went on to say, i'm quoting here, we just sorry
lost where i was there. the statement said we are sure many people in this country are curious to know if we had any elton's plans. with that we say without question, we did not. the search of that mean nix apartment -- phoenix apartment went on 24 hours. a lost items seized from it and two vehicles there. the two suspects attended the same islamic community center and those who knew them there said they too were surprised at what took place here in garland, texas. listen here. >> shocking because he was he had a nice positive demeanor and he was very polite and always had a smile on his face. now, what took him from that person to what happened, i don't know. >> worth pointing out melissa, if isis is indeed claiming responsibility for this attack
they are claiming responsibility for an attack which was ultimately an almost complete failure. melissa? melissa: jonathan thanks so much. panera pats itself on the back for removing artificial ingredients but the move may be more about marketing than improving the food. plus new evidence of a gene linked to obesity. why you may have to work harder at the gym to see the same results. that's not fair! more "money" coming up. ♪

throwing everything out of the window. i understand looking at antibiotics in chicken and we're becoming immune to antibiotics that they're not working any longer. seedless watermelon. that is gmo. got rid of seeds. not spitting them out. chuck it all out. >> so inconvenient to spit out the seeds? melissa: yeah, i'm a lady. >> 150 of their ingredients out of 400, if they had been bad for you everyone was dropping dead as soon as they left the place. you're absolutely right, some of it dies, get rid of it. some has fancy and scary looking names. it is pr thing. gmo, chipolte has done completely bogus. no evidence of that is harmful to anyone. melissa: if they pay the price down the road if the cheese looks a little off, colors of things change because they don't have chemicals in there, it doesn't last as long lori, from a business perspective there could be a real cost to this down the road. >> absolutely. their overhead is going to get
higher pause the food will not last as long. that is the point of putting preservatives in food. melissa: yeah. >> they will probably have to go through more and more purchases of their inputs. >> if they don't want to impact taste, it will take time. took dunkin' donuts four years to make doughnuts without trans fats without negatively impacting consumer experience win is enjoying a sugary doughnut when you order it. it is not an overnight thing either. the market could like consumers did with mcdonald's negatively react. >> completely right. very easy for people to say on surveys we want healthy options but to actually order it and eat it. melissa: totally. thanks guys. a few stories on our radar. mike huckabee is running for president. the former governor launched the second bid for the white house from his hometown in arkansas. huckabee wants to fix the country's debt and restore it is leadership in the world. megyn kelly will have governor huckabee's first and only television interview today. tonight on fox news tonight at
