9:03 am
of 50,000 surveyed more than half can't have a $400 emergency. they have to borrow from family, get a pay day or a pawn shop loan 47%, that's a shock to me. >> that's an incredible number and a frightening one. i'm a favor, i've been a saver all my life and i save money and i still do. that number nearly-- households don't have enough to meet a $400 obligation that tells me that we are still not a nation of savers, but tells me that the great recession that started in '07 and '08 had a profound impact where you have so much of the population that's not working full-time. people who want work cannot get it and dropped out of the labor force, they are he a down to itliterally literally. stuart: why save for a rainy
9:04 am
day if the government gives you everything from food to housing. and the survey said that one third of the people don't go to a doctor because they can't afford it. ashley: that's obamacare. what's more disturbing about this. the growing number of middle class and upper middle class people asking for help. which, of course is a dangerous sign for the economy overall. stuart: who. ashley: when upper middle class, the families and households looking for financial help. stuart: last word. >> i was in france a couple of weeks ago and i have a number of french tell me look after decades of socialism this is what happens, they take away the incentive to work hard the government safety net is there for them no matter what. people aren't starting businesses, they don't save money and this is the road we're going down here in the u.s. stuart: 9:04 eastern time. 6:04 in california. hope you're up and have got the coffee going. we usually don't show bid-ask boards, but t-mobile in talks
9:05 am
to merge with dish. both stocks are opening higher. ashley i think this is about moving television from a box. ashley: exactly right. stuart: in your living room to-- >> into your little-- how many people and i take the commuter train in in and out of new york city a lot of people watching tv and everything on the little screens, of course on tablets as well. it's all about mobile. it makes sense for them to get together. stuart: none of my kids or grandkids watch television on a set top box, a box, the traditional. and dish wants to put its content on t-mobile's phone system. that's-- >> it's the futures. subsequent generations to us are trained to watch pictures on the little screens. it makes us crazy, we like the big big screens. stuart: i used to think how can you watch a movie on a little screen like this? we can and we do. the dark web, we can't see it and we can't track it.
9:06 am
listen to this. >> well these companies build their business model around end to end encryption. there's no ability currently for us to see that. so if we intercept the communication all we see is encrypted communication. stuart: that's the fbi. we can't read what isis is putting around. isis is using it to people trying to increase acts of terror. >> i think that this makes the nsa issue moot. >> isis is doing what whatever enemy of the united states has done in the course of history, find ways around technology and destroy them before they can stroi us. they're in a long line of enemies that have done this. the whole debate of the nsa and wire tapping and it may be beside the point. i find a staggering our technology agencies haven't figured out a way to deencrypt.
9:07 am
in france i saw an emig na machine machine-- enigma enigma machine and how they broke the code. stuart: if you're in the intelligence agency we're-- you'd say we can't read that. >> leaves the enemy is working on another way to getting around it because they know we're on to them. stuart: we've got a lot of stories today. how about lauren with the headlines. some are fun. happy hour at taco bell. a restaurant in chicago will serve beer wine and mixed drinks, it will inside the restaurant and a new cup will distinguish between the alcohol and nonalcohol beverages. it's a cool open environment at the scores and why they have
9:08 am
the brick walls, the communal tables and basically the idea is to attract more millennials. stuart: that's a taco bell? >> it doesn't look like an a taco bell to me. >> it looks like a basement bar. ashley: it does. >> you're going to go there. so much for the trend toward healthy. 61% of the buy we buy from the food star is highly processed. that comes from the american jounl of nutrition. and the average americans serves more than a thousand calories each day. to be clear, items like pasturized yogurt and frozen vegetables are considered processed, but still. and then you have william shatner and new set of wheels. how cool are they? it's a three-wheeled silver studded bike called the rivet motorcycle and he's going to use it to go on a cross-country mission to raise awareness.

9:10 am
miami. the republican field getting real crowded. according to the fox news poll. florida governor jeb bush and scott walker have 12%. neuro surgeon ben carson 11% and rand paul 9%. there will be two dozen in the running. >> the field is a hot mess because there are so many running. i think more voices in there and you'll see them early on and a challenge for fox news and others who want to hold debates. we've set our goals the top ten will be on and other networks will have their own rules. and i think they'll all eventually washingout except for the top tier because of resources. it's all about raising money. and you didn't mention ted cru who raised 40 million between the super pacs and straight up donations and they'll be competitive through iowa
9:11 am
carolina. and will wash out. >> 9% for rand paul even with the splash he made-- >> a tea party favorite 22% like scott walker who hasn't announced yet. tea party loves scott walker 22% followed by cruz at 17%, carson at 12. . don't forget about marco rubio also in the top tier. stuart: thank you. president obama says america is the most respected nation and now he's hinting, we hear at statehood for palestine. ink mo what do you make of that? statehood for palestine. >> in israeli media he was talking and hunting, not a surprise. stuart: also coming up the future of entertainment stream being on demand binge watches. show time a la carte. we've got it all for you in a minute. ♪ upside down boy you turn me
9:12 am
inside out and round and round ♪
9:13 am
9:14 am
9:15 am
>> president obama raises the possibility ofd he.
9:16 am
he's holding it out as a threat over benjamin netanyahu's head. he was against statehood when he was running and reversed that position. i think that obama by putting the screws to him here and saying this kind of thing it will motivate netanyahu to go back to the table with the palestinians and it will have the opposite effect. and-- >> that's a significant development in american-israel relations and it just happened. >> not for the good. stuart: not for the good. okay. i want to change tact for a second and go to streaming. we think that that's where everything is going. you know streaming live events of various kinds, sport or music. look who is here he's back glutton for punishment keith is back. >> good morning to you. stuart: for everybody's benefit let's be clear here. you stream via cable, not necessarily via this thing. you stream live music events correct? >> correct, but we have concerts and things like that
9:17 am
also on the web as well. which is traditional streaming. stuart: streaming is your business? >> our business is producing content that's what this is about. stuart: your watch your content free you're not going to charge you? >> well the cable charges the same as you're watching here now. stuart: why did you go the streaming route? everybody else is doing this. yahoo! is streaming a nfl game and there's all kinds of examples where streaming is taking over. why did you choose this several years ago? >> well where we are right now, we want to provide access to young people. young people watch their content through devices or whatever is available to them. they're not afraid of the internet and a lot of times not going through the traditional cable medium. it's important to use the new things developed to reach them. stuart: can i watch your live streaming on a tv box as well as one of these? >> absolutely. stuart: i can? >> yeah. stuart: i can take my pick?
9:18 am
>> yeah. stuart: i can stream my live music. >> help me. >> concert. >> the difference between streaming and traditional cable is you're going mainly over the internet. ashley: aren't millennials cutting the cord now? is there a need for cable? isn't that going away? everyone wants internet access. >> i think there will always be a need for cable and cable companies are not luddites they're doing everything to get their internet packages solid so they're working on content. ashley: does that trend worry you cutting the cord? >> it's not cutting the cord. there are some young people that are not getting cable at all. they're using the over the top things, so cable companies intelligently have responded by coming up with skinny packages and come up with different ways to provide content. stuart: do you remember the big fight manny pacquiao remember that? periscope streamed that live.
9:19 am
>> yeah. stuart: periscope could stream a live music concert like you're streaming, they could compete with you. >> i think that's-- >> that's a grudging acceptance. >> no it's an acceptance of the advance of technology. you had great technologies coming along-- >> they're being sued for that didn't have the right to show the fight, it's a legal issue. stuart: do you have the exclusive rights to a particular music concert? >> depends on the artist. sometimes you have the rights to different piece. we did a concert with sean puff daddy combs and that was wonderful, but to be able to go ahead and get certain concerts you have to work with the providers. stuart: are you profitable? >> we're working on it.

where are we? we're a half hour into the trading session, this thursday lunchtime. we had been down more than that and along game the imf and the federal reserve should wait until next year to start raising interest rates and that puts some background backbone into the market and we're only down 47. interest rates started out at a high this morning, and then they started to come down. look where we are now. 2.31 is on the treasury the benchmark interest rates in america. t-mobile in talks to merge with dish network. both are moving higher and that represents a big change in the entertainment business putting more tv out of tv's and into your phone. we're on it. our big story this hour u.s. officials warning there is no way to monitor isis' on-line encrypted communication, this is new, they're using the dark web.

there is a movie called the deep web. alex explains it. >> an appears in a the private and anonymous area of the the dark net. it was created mostly by government agencies in order to have private and anonymous communications, used by dissidents and all kinds of people. it was primarily used for drug trance as. stuart: so the dark net, you can't look at it you can't follow it you can't read somebody else's dark net communications. congressman scott garrett joins us now. congressman all the uproar over the nsa keeping phone records and bulk data. that seems to be a moot point because the terrorists have leaped the phone record thing and gone sort of to this dark net thing. >> i heard your description of it being a moot point.
10:02 am
i believe it's apropos although someone here from the nsa would say true they're going to leapfrog in many cases, but in many other cases they're going to continue to use what is the easiest, which is the general internet and general telephones and that sort of thing, in a lot of cases, and that's why nsa made the case that using the technology like the collection system is important to them. we push back on that of course. >> true, look the fbi was in front of congress yesterday saying there is this thing called the dark net. we can't track it it's dark can't have a look at it. that seems to me to be a big concern. the terrorists have moved on to something as sophisticated as that, that's extraordinary. >> it is. i mean it's extraordinary, but maybe in this day of technology not unexpected. look, bad guys are always going to try to be operate in secret no matter whether it's in the
10:03 am
21st skenry or the 19th century. they'll try to find places to meet without the police. the question is what is the government's responsibility in response to this and i would suggest that it's not to say that we should require tech companies to have so-called back door avenues for our government to be able to peer into because you know the bad guys, again, are not going to use the legitimate companies that we have the back doors into. they're going to continue to use the dark avenues, dark venues, companies that do not have the back door. stuart: are you saying you're on the rand paul side of this argument? you don't want the government looking at us is that it? >> i've always been on the side of the citizens and our privacy rights to make sure that's 0 your constitution and fourth american rights are protected, that the government cannot reach in these areas.

when the government tries to overreach, who are they affecting the good guys you and i, not doing anything wrong and the bad guys are going to find other ways around it. >> it's a powerful argument. how do we know that our government isn't saying hey, look, we can't read this dark net. we can't follow it or track it? >> all the while they can. i mean there is that argument to be made. >> oh it is. i mean and that's why over the last weeks, months and years now, that so many of these venues our government engaged in that apparently congress hasn't been doing enough oversight on and the administration has not been forth coming and those from the intelligence community have in certain cases know the been forth coming enough when they are before congress has opened and shined the light of day on what our government is doing and just means, was it franklin who said that we require constant vigilance in protecting our liberties. stuart: yes, we do. you are my congressman and
10:05 am
you're going to keep me safe you know that? >> i'll do everything possible to make sure that you and my constituents and all of our americans our civil liberties are protected. stuart: thank you. i had to break away quickly because the dow jones average has turned positive. 20 odd minutes ago we were down 110. and then the imf said hey, federal reserve don't raise rates and bingo. at one point we were up 5 points. it's a see-saw market, but the fed is very much in the news. i hate to say, you know what i think. ashley: i know you do. stuart: the fed, there you have it. look at this the share price of under amour. the chief executive says his goal is to build a billion dollar basket brand and send it around and curry with the league. ashley: he's the league mvp and

10:09 am
free for everyone that people can access people don't necessarily need to go through the traditional route to be successful and build the network. stuart: ponder. that allows famous people to talk directly to their fans. i know i'm simplifying it, but that's basically what ponder is all about, right? >> right we haven't launched yet and staying kind of quiet with what we're doing, but what i can say we've built an amazing amazing team and-- >> wait a minute you're staying quiet about what you're doing, but you're telling a national tv audience what you're doing. so-- we're not rehesleaseing details. stuart: is it a specific new technology that you're using or is it an idea that you're using? >> we're trying to democratize social media so anyone no matter whether you're just some person in the middle of u.s. with no followers, or whether you're an excellent, that you

>> a judge in d.c. grants a retrial in the 2001 killing of chandra levy. that means a brand new trial with the man convicted and
10:16 am
they're saying a witness gave misleading information. chandra levy was a 24-year-old entern who disappeared while jogging in 2001. checking the big board, a tiny loss, imf says the fed should wait until next year to raise interest rates and that wiped out a 100 point selloff. we're down at 1174.80. and the pending obamacare ruling in the supreme court, if the ruling goes against obamacare costs will rise. she said a whole lot more than that. ashley: she did. sylvia mathews saying if the supreme court does overturn a provision of the affordable care act the number of uninsured would spike significantly affordability goes away she said and a death spiral would ensue. it should be pointed out though she talks about lower costs,
10:17 am
but the cost of insurance offered under the federal health law is going up in many places in 34 states by an average of 29% or more. stuart: already. ashley: all right. stuart: without any supreme court court-- i wonder what she's trying to do with that. she's laying out the case that it's a disaster liz: it's creating fear right? so she's saying 10 million have already paid obamacare premiums and 6 million up to 8 million would lose their premiums if-- >> can you imagine you're doing the show and the ruling for the supreme court goes in and goes one way against obamacare. ashley: right. stuart: can you imagine the story we'll have on our hands liz: turmoil. ashley: chaos. stuart: well said. the nsa data collection program that would end in six months. rand paul is pushing a lot of republicans away. how do we know that? look at the polls.

10:33 am
do you really think people willing to cut off the heads of ire adversaries would obey -- stuart: no, because the fbi wants the key to the encryption. >> yeah. stuart: the key belongs to monsters that are trying to kill us. how are they going to get the key . stuart: it doesn't belong to the apples of this world and to the google and facebooks of this world? >> you know, i don't know the answer to that. but think about it. if you were isis and you were trying to communicate with emhe isaries in the united states, would you trust google. stuart: more than 200 social media sites that use both encryption in and out. >> yeah. >> and that's what the terrorists are using this social. >> the terrorist operational. look we're dealing with religious nazis. >> yeah. >> they want to kill us on all, so why not wipe them out with any tool we can. >> now you're asking me a military question? >> i'm asking why doesn't the nsa break into these

10:35 am
to 51 countries. >> no. stuart: zero. >> yes. stuart: why. >> because the federal government has made it unlawful to be sued for that, but if visor had done it or jnj, they would be liable for all the reasonable -- even the type of fear that people have -- >> well, they use fedex to send them. >> yes. >> and could it be liable -- >> no, fedex is really not responsible for being the weird -- stuart: the contents. >> i mean there actually have been criminal cases where the government has attempted to prosecute fedex for transporting dangerous controlled substances. and the government said if you're going to impose on them the burdening of opening everything up -- >> well, it's the doj going after that case. >> yes. stuart: wouldn't the army lab have to claire what's in the fedex package before they put
10:36 am
it on the truck? >> they do. well, they have the military, so they don't feel they have to do that. this is not the law everywhere. the federal government cannot be sued, and states cannot be sued. but one state connecticut can absolutely be sued, they can be sued as a person, they've given themself that protection that the feds have . stuart: why don't you -- >> well, this is with why these issues happen because people know they won't be liable for a mistake like this. stuart: . stuart: i want your judgment on this one just for a second -- >> you're interested in my judgment for a change? [laughter] . stuart: a judge told a teenager that she had a choice go walk for 30 miles because you stiffed a cab driver or face 30 days in jail and your comment is. >> profoundly unconstitutional. only the legislature can prescribe punishments. j.j. can't do that.
10:37 am
if they can come up with punishments like that, then we've deferred the law for what the law is and what the role of the judiciary to violate guilt or innocence . stuart: unconstitutional. >> yes. because it invades the branch of government . stuart: so what do you think the young lady should do? sue. >> no. she should do whatever the punishment is for that crime. stiffing a cab is probably a form of theft. it was. less than $100, 30 days in jail for $100 is pretty hefty she probably has a prior conviction, so that's the reason for that penalty . stuart: we don't know that. >> no. we don't know. first time around, actuality absolutely not incarceration. you probably have to pay a a few hundred dollars on top of that . stuart: you're such a lenient judge. >> i'm telling you what the law is, you never give me the
10:38 am
authority to make the law. you want principle to explain . stuart: that's right. that's why you're here. >> what's up with this today? . stuart: i think they liked your performance today. i don't know why. >> i'm actually very gentle. they'rethey're admonishing me . stuart: what does ifb stand for? don't tell him? >> i've forgotten. i'm so old. . stuart: interrupt and feedback. these things we wear in our ear. >> interrupt and feedback. let me tell you. they love to do both. [laughter] . stuart: i'm going to digress for a moment, i used to have a director that would crack jokes in my ifb, this was not on this network,. >> wait a minute they didn't have these 30 years ago. . stuart: basketball. game one of the finals tonight, lebron james goes
10:39 am
against steve curry it's a match made for sponsors. look who is here. outside the nba store what have you got connell? >> i'm getting some interruption and feedback, sir. [laughter] i'm glad to be on your fine program today to talk about these two talented athletes. i've got to tell you all these other sports networks are certainly going to be talking about the game on the court tonight, and it should be great to get this series started for us at the fox business network it's all about the money and the game off the court. and as you say these two individuals -- what we like to call the battle of the mvps. lebron has won that award four times, curry one won it this year. look at it from a few different metrics. all-star game curry actually wins that one so he's very popular, facebook and twitter. that is still lebron's territory. so if you watch the game tonight, stuart, pay attention to these two guys. there's a lot of money on the line. and to make it even more
10:40 am
simple for a soccer guy like that you. watch their feet. because the companies on their feet are another big part of it. lebron is nike, the dominant shoe company in the country. 95% of the market, and curry is under armour. so keep an eye on all of this if you can . stuart: i promise i shall. thank you very much indeed for joining us. appreciate it. time for the sector report. look who is here. sherrill, what are you watching today? >> no one can interrupt me in the next 30 seconds because i have something very important to show all of you. let me give you a really quick check at media and of course at streaming companies in particular. really the two are go together. we've got a preview of show time offering $11 a month for show time, bring on homeland and all of your shows,ed married sector today, kind of a mixed bag. but look at internet. and what i've decided stuart,
10:41 am
we've got yahoo and we were talking about the super bowl yesterday, and amazon, and all the streaming, i think i'm going to have to take the sector of media and internet and just combine them, stuart, what douse? . stuart: i say "yes." get some numbers off of that screen. my head is totally spinning. one more time. that screen. up next. the confession that set social media ablaze. megan kelly on her exclusive interview. that's next. >> it was an important step for josh to confess to the police what he had done because he had broken the law. and we felt if we didn't do this, that this would be something hanging over hishier head the rest of hisit life it needs to be earned... every day... using wellness to keep away illness... and believing that a single life can be made better by millions of others. healthier takes somebody who can power modern health care... by connecting every single part of it. for as the world keeps on searching for healthier...we're here to make

stuart: the dougers, they sat down with megan kelly for a
10:46 am
exclusive interview on the megan file. >> so important for us as parents to talk to our girls and make sure that nothing else had happened. well, one by one as we talked with them, none of them were aware of josh's wrongdoings. >> so they learned about it from you. >> yeah. >> as people on the outside think, well, christians are supposed to be perfect. you're supposed to live this perfect life. no, all of us as christians, we struggle every day . stuart: megan kelly joins us now on the phone. megan, thank you very much. welcome to "varney & company." >> happy to be with you stuart. good morning . stuart: can you explain to me why the dougers are so fascinating to so many people in america? >> you know, i confess i never watched the show, and i didn't -- of course i knew who they were because i've seen them on television in other forms, like, fox news and today show and so on. but the more i, you know,
10:47 am
studied up on the family, i get it, i completely get especially having been down there and meet them all. they have 19 children. let's start with that. let's start with the house. they've got the pretty kitchen in the front with the enormous counter, and then the industrial kitchen in the back which looks like the kitchen you would say in a restaurant. each kid has a responsibility. the older kids help raise the younger kids. the way they approach living is just so interesting and you sort of expect disaster, maybe that's just my own bias because i have three children, and i can barrel get them -- i can't get them to do anything quite frankly. but these kids are well behaved, they listen to their parents, they listen to one another, is on and so fourth. that's one of the reasons, and i think that's one of the
10:48 am
questions why there was some sort of utopia going on in that family . stuart: yeah. now, the left generally is hostile to the duggars. i think it's probably worse than that. but intense host i let comes out in social media. why is that? is it because they're profound christians. is that it? >> well, i think it's two things. i think you can be a profound christian and hold your belief deeply, and you may or may not be a target from, you know, someone on the left. but the thing about the duggars as their vocal about it. and it's not just that they're out there saying this is what i believe, this is what i believe, but they have been pretty condemning in their language about certain people. gay people, lesbian people in particular, and not to mention transgender and so on . stuart: yeah. >> so i think shouldn't be totally surprised to receive judgment when something happens in their family . stuart: you do know that social media is all over your interview.
10:49 am
>> oh, yeah. stuart: you've seen it obviously. they're saying that maybe some of your questions were too softball. quickly your response, please. >> oh, no, i mean. there's a piece right now saying she may not be the best interview, but she was tough and fair and she asked the necessary responsible questions . stuart: well said. well said. >> and i think that was my goal. my goal was not to bring down the duggars my goal was to get the story and i did. stuart: yes, you did. thank you very much for joining us, megan. great to have you on the show. >> thank you . stuart: wait a moment. let me go to the big board. i want to see that. because we've been all over the place this morning. down 110 points. the ims says don't raise rates until next year. the market comes back at one point. we were up 5, 6 points. now we're down 60. not a lot of volatility, but something going on there. >> it's enough going on to move it up and down a bit .
10:50 am
stuart: all right. we'll talk tomorrow when we've got that jobs report. >> and grief. . stuart: the buzzer for that. but don't do it to me, please. this. a pill dubbed the female viagra it may get fda approval this week. it's been twice rejected before but it may get approval. ashley, tell me more about female viagra. >> we're all familiar with the men's version of viagra which deals with the ability to have sex, this drug deals with desire quarterback which is a whole different issue to tackle if you like in the form of a pill. low in women. it's been rejected twice before. there are side affects with this low blood pressure, fainting nausea, sleepiness, they're going to try for the third time to get this drug through. it's, you know -- sprout pharmaceuticals.
10:51 am
they're -- stuart: totally private; right? >> totally private they've put all this effort into this drug, which is being called the female viagra . stuart: so we assume if it's being approved by the fda, it goes on the market and sprout pharmaceuticals is worth a ton of money. >> yeah. stuart: but are there side effects, liz? >> yeah. stuart: do we know? >> yeah. it's pretty severe. sleepiness and nausea. but the fda in making the ruling is basically saying the benefits for it outweigh the risks. it's for premenopausal and menopausal women . stuart: okay. we'll find out at the end of the week. >> we'lled of out . stuart: check this out, please. you're going to watch a clip from the documentary journey through life. you'll never believe what it took to make this. i'm talking about talking to one of the producers in the next hour. watch this. >> it's the story the greatest of all adventures. the journey through life

stuart: could you raise $400 cash at short notice? nearly half the population cannot do that. to get the money, they have to sell something borrow from friends or relatives or hit the pawn shop. the fact that half the country is in that hand to mouth situation comes as a shock especially since we are six years into a recovery. clearly this is not a
11:00 am
prosperous society. oh, the elite are doing okay. but the country as a whole is not just where it could or should be. where is the dynamic growth? but there's somet going on. thrift. that is saving, is no longer considered a virtue, and there's a reason for that. why save for a rainy day, when the government will give you everything you need when the rainy day hits? that's another obama failure. the safety net does not encourage saving. it discourages saving. it encourages dependence. a few days ago the president claimed he saved the economy. that he said would be his legacy. but if half the people cannot lay their hands on $400 at short nose, that claim rings hollow. ♪ ♪ . stuart: i promise we will have more on that 47% of the people
11:01 am
who can't get together $400 fast. we'll have more on that because that's a bombshell. look at this. the dow industrial is beginning to fall more. we were down 110 about an hour ago, now we're down about 100 points. but we do have interest rates coming down a little from their highs earlier today. now we're at 2.31 on the ten-year treasury. a couple of stocks. t-mobile and dish networks. network i should say. they're talking about a merger. both stocks are up. this is about putting tv content on your phone. that's what that's all about. now, let's get back to that shocking number. nearly half of us don't have enough cash on hand to cover a $400 emergency. i just had a rant, but i want to repeat it if i may. i find that a shocking number. 47% of 50,000 polled by the federal reverse can't get $400
11:02 am
together. what does that tell you? >> it's a shocking number, it's a depressing number, it's a scary number. i think it tell us a few things. first people are over extended. they're spending more than they bring in. so they're spending more than they make. there's also a lack of financial literatey. the wage growth. we haven't see wage growth in this country in a meaningful way in a long time. not to mention there's a lot of people who are under employed. working part-time when they wish they were working full-time. they're not working full-time because their employer may not want to bring them on because they don't want to pay for health . stuart: when you spoke very important. under lying the whole thing is obama's economic policy. if we had growth instead of redistribution, i don't think you would have this situation today. >> we need growth for sure . stuart: yeah. >> and i think that we're seeing the stress on the middle class between the rich and the poor is only getting
11:03 am
greater because of these issues -- stuart: old ho a second. president obama comes on and says in particular inequality. i'm going to do something about it. i'm going to redistribute it from the top to the bottom. the exact opposite has happened the length between this group and this group is getting wider. >> a lot of people are having to take multiple jobs in order to make it work, they're in worse shape than they were several years ago. especially if you look at the millennials, you look at the younger generous, they're under a lot of stress because they've got the student loans. they're not making the wages that they should be graduating from school, especially if they studied something like, liberal arts. they're under a lot of pressure -- you look at the boomers -- wait a second. are you in a agreement with me that this is a policy problem? and if we have different policies lower taxes less regulation, we would not be in this mess today. would you agree with that?
11:04 am
>> i do agree with that . stuart: okay. >> and if you look regulation, that's a big deal. smaller businesses and larger businesses are afraid to hire because they don't understand the regulation, they're worried about tax policy, there's a lot of reluctance to hire still those high quality jobs because of some of the issues that are happening out of the government that individuals have a responsibility to . stuart: oh, absolutely they believe of. there's more to add to this. also within that survey, one third of those surveyed, one third don't go to a doctor because they can't afford it. now, i don't think that's because of the high cost of health care. i think that's because the huge deductibles that obamacare has introduced. >> they don't have the money to spend to go to the doctor. also people are putting that expense. which is only going to hurt them in the long run because you may have something seriously wrong with you but if you keep not going to the doctor those expenses in the long run could add up. so i think there's a lot of
11:05 am
issues at play. people are putting these things off, and it cooler come to haunt us in the long run . stuart: no, there's only one issue at play. socialism. [laughter] . stuart: i'm going to quote margaret fascia. i've got to get this right. they don't care if the poor gets poorer. as long as the rich get poorer too. and i think that's exactly what you've got. >> no. i think it's a sad state if that happens . stuart: you can come back. [laughter] good stuff. we appreciate you being with us. >> thank you . stuart: now this. an fbi official is calling for congress' help when it comes to fighting isis online. here counterterrorism director michael yesterday on capitol hill. >> some of these companies build their business model around end to end encryption. there's no ability currently for us to see that. so if we intercept the communication, all we see is encrypted communication.
11:06 am
. stuart: more on this threat intelligence at unity inc. i'm telling there's this dark net. it's over there. you can't read. it's encrypted. it's being used by terrorists. is that roughly accurate to what we've got going on here. >> sure. i think. the dark net that they're typically talking about is a network called poor. and it is encrypted and it is used by people with all sorts of motivations. you have people who are concerned about their privacy here in the united states, maybe they don't want their internet service provider to see what they're doing. and then you also have folks that have a more necessity fairious point to their network usage . stuart: is it -- >> pornography, that kind of thing . stuart: is it true that this dark net is encrypted in a way that nobody could break that encryption. is it true. >> it is true in a sense. the encryption there is very
11:07 am
good. now, would i stack that up against the organization who has the most computing power in the world like fort meade and nsa? i don't think i would feel entirely safe around that. but the phish has done this before. one time of things they did -- within the last few years they exploited end hosts. so like, they find that there was a child pornography rain that was identifying the dark net, and they used their ability to exploit those users' impurities to gain access to them and break up the child pornography rain . stuart: okay. >> so i don't know that encryption here is the issue. the fbi has other rules to bear on this problem . stuart: okay. now look. i'm not technologically savvy by any means what did you do about technical people on our staff said i could hook to the dark net in about five minutes. is that true? >> that is very true, yes. stuart: i could be working on the same network as a
11:08 am
terrorist is working because nobody could see what i am doing. >> that is and isn't true. the issue here is that the network traffic has to come out of somewhere. if you want to talk to another, like, if you want to talk to the regular internet. if you want to talk to, you know read your gmail for example. and what we've seen from u.s. intelligence services with both the foreign and domestic mandate is that meal monitor traffic on the so-called exit nodes. but, yes in principle we could hook you up in the dark net in a matter of minutes and then your traffic could be brushing past the traffic of, you know, some jihadi somewhere that is accurate. stuart: i'm not real happy about this. it seems to me that the nsa argument about phone logs and copying phone records that now seems to be mute. it looks like to me the terrorists have leapfrogged over the phone log problem and have gone straight to this
11:09 am
dark net and now they're operating with impugnity. i mean am i exaggerating this? >> i think perhaps a little bit. this isn't to is that we don't have tools against people using the so-called dark net. as i mentioned before. the fbi was able to get onto the actual computers of the folks who were involved in a child pornography ring who were using the dark net. there are computers bear for someone like the fbi and the nsa. so i don't know that the encryption aspect of it is -- you're stating everything absolutely factually but it's not to say we're entirely powerless here . stuart: okay. understood. but i'm saying i was saying it factually correct. george i'm totally at sea with technology, but he straightened it out. thank you. >> thank you . stuart: we've got a lot of news for you today. look who is here with the headlines. sherrill. >> hello stuart, we've got a lot of questions for you. should users of facebook,
11:10 am
twitter, instagram pay to use those sites? interesting question raised in the new york times this morning. in fact, they quote facebook ceo mark zuckerberg that he only makes 20 cents per user, and also the background information on their users facebook has 1.5 billion users adds have today. cailtyn jenner could be a $1.5 million woman on the cover. the former olympician now containment has earnings potential galore while living as bruce jenner she made around $100 million, but if the endorsement deals continue caitlyn could be worth more than chris jenner or any other kardashian. you go, caitlyn. and final subway jumping on the healthy eating bandwagon announcing they're going to be dropping artificial ingredients by 2017 and that

11:16 am
planned to unleash a, quote, unquote, a hurricane of evidence that's going to show how much bribery and corruption was going on in fifa. he's a kind of an interesting character. he's taken out a political ad in trinidad that says basically the gloves are off. i can't keep the secrets anymore. you are going to be stunned by what i have revealed that what's been going on at fifa . stuart: this is a whole new can of words. >> a whole new . stuart: that he's opening up. >> and the question is how far up does it go? do we get to set -- because we know the fbi said yesterday that they are, in fact, investigating him as well because he resigned on tuesday. stuart: okay. so set blat is the guy that was at the top. >> the very top . stuart: and second in command was the guy who organized it, jack warner. >> correct. stuart: jack warner now says i'm coming clean with everything. >> take the gloves off . stuart: spill the beans -- >> again, let's come back to

let me make sure i got this right. i get my app i call you up, you come to my house you pick up the stuff, you take it away you delivery the stuff the next day all dry cleaned launder, how much? >> just about the standard market rate, so just about as much you pay at your local dry cleaner . stuart: where do you make the profit? >> we make the profit by taking out some of the access expenses that are currently in the dry-cleaning industry. so most local dry cleaners are actually just agency model where they simply they have a retail location and they're out so far so we have the cost for the real estate and instead delivery the product directly to the consumer's doorstep . stuart: i see your point. we're fascinated by this kind of story. because it seems that the internet has opened up delivery services of all kinds. we had an alcohol delivery service on this show just the

11:20 am

11:27 am
can get a three bedroom there for $13,000, and the $167,000, you've got to do your research and there's a lot of americans are doing we talked about central mark and south america. but this is the story right now. and we haven't seen this since the early '90s when americans have had this type of dollar -- >> finally. >> you can get a smoking deal. >> yeah. >> i don't know what you all are thinking, but that was my dream when i was 22. . stuart: paris is expensive. >> yeah. like manhattan. naples florida. >> that's a dollar per dollar transaction, stuart, i have to disagree . stuart: precisely. you heard it first on fox business. the faa easing their hiring practices for air traffic controllers, it could be a deadly mistake.

one breaking news. without public notice the obama administration has expanded the nsa's warrantless buying programs. ashley: it has been expanded. this is in place to try to track down the origin of computer hacking linked to foreign governments. before, as they were looking for patterns and now they have expanded it to widen the neck to catch where these intrusions are coming from china russia and some one. stuart: nothing unconstitutional about trekking foreigners when a break in here. ashley: you can't do that. stuart: it is not unconstitutional to go after foreigners on their home turf. ashley: any one thing with warrantless in front of it he doesn't like. stuart: americans overseas. ashley: foreign governments is will we are talking about.

stuart: distinction lost on me. a recent investigation done by fox business shows the essay a going away from merit based hiring and moving to more women and step for airport control towers. this is what adam shapiro had to say recently. adam: remember what they did when they change their hiring processes is to qualify african-american, asian-american, and latino american candidates and through the mouth people who have already been approved to be on the waiting list the reserve list going to air traffic control. stuart: jason riley columnist for the wall street journal, welcome to the program. you don't like the whole idea of special programs to shoehorn women and people of color into top jobs. you don't like that. >> if they have the chance of compromising safety. i don't know about you but when my plane began the initial 30,000 ft decent i am not concerned about the race or
11:34 am
gender of the person on the ground who will help the plane lands safely. i am concerned about their competence. i wish this administration shared my priorities. stuart: don't you want to get rid of past discrimination by favoring people of color and women to get them into those jobs? >> absolutely not. i don't king reverse discrimination is the way to go. the e issue here is the extent to which this administration will compromise safety to up the numbers of blacks or hispanics or women in certain occupations. the has traditionally used as a means of recruiting these various programs with four and four year institutions around the country, you have to pass the test an aptitude test that measures your cognitive skills problem-solving abilities and so forth. those are important determining who is successfully going to get through air-traffic control training programs. this administration wants to use
11:35 am
a whole different set of criteria to determine who will get through there and they risk compromising safety and we have seen this in various other areas, race and gender tests firefighting, policing even in the military this is dangerous stuff. stuart: will we ever get away from it? >> not during this administration. this administration is obsessed with racial diversity. stuart: ready to say marriage only, we define merit this way and this is the way rules are going to be. >> that is the history of america and the effort to move away from that is where the problems particularly in america divers and pluralistic society. the racial spoils system mindsets is especially problematic here. they are disadvantaged and other groups are advantage. stuart: we won't change with this administration but the next one or the one after that, can
11:36 am
you see a time when we go straight on merit? >> i can see the supreme court shut the door on this behavior. they keep punching particularly on issues like a jew cajun race can be used as a factor but not the factor and leaving a lot -- equal protection of the law means equal protection of the law. stuart: is very difficult i want you you and you and that is it. >> you will treat people individuals we will not treat them as individuals. i think the only fair way to do things is to individuals. stuart: i really agree with you. >> when it comes to something like landing passenger planes, i would particularly like us to be using merit. >> admission to medical school admission of a broader scale look what is happening at the university in this country so the document 3d the emergency
11:37 am
room, are they there because they were best to be serving me in the er at the moment? maybe not. to your point of the supreme court that is where this is going to have to go on several levels. stuart: you wrote the book please stop helping us as in please stop helping people of color and women. you wrote that book. you must get a lot of hate mail. i am not joking. >> the type of help i think ultimately harms and that is what i want to stop happening. stuart: when you are treated as a special case, you are in need. >> you have to be careful how you help people and how the government has typically and traditionally gone about helping racial and ethnic minorities has not been very helpful in the long run. it created a lot of tension and in many cases created or retrogression in the case of black americans. stuart: if our government wanted to help black americans in particular isolate that group how would you do?
11:38 am
>> there are many things you could do. there are things you should stop doing. stop keeping poor kids trapped in failing schools, stock raising minimum wages the price less skilled and less experienced people out of work many of which happen to be black. there are things we should stop doing and that could help group's progress because it is really self development that will help people people have to help themselves and move forward. the government gets in the way of that self development doing more harm than good. stuart: jason riley of the man and institutes, one brave the i. you are, thanks very much. neil cavuto is back with us. let's see if he is ready to take another she shot at my accent. listen to this. in what way are you going to copy me again today? neil: today i am going to the british. stuart: are you there? neil: yes i am. stuart: for the next two hours
11:39 am
are you going to come up with another two hours of "varney and company"? neil: no. it will be interesting. i love that last guests sort of a counterintuitive way to look at things. following the same type of stuff counterweight way of going about business news. stuart: i want to ask about lincoln chafee who is running for president, he stood up and declared yesterday we are going to get america to the metric system. how does a fine american like you feel about converting to the european standards which i used to use? how do you feel about that? neil: what you use now? doing homework for these appearances i know you are fast for this. how do americans get around the notion of is it one gallon or 3.17 liters? i think all of a sudden 100 yard
11:40 am
football field is i guess that 91.44 ft football field. america ignored the rest of the world. we have been at super power we don't have to do what your ridiculous king did just to fit in. americans don't fit in. we have our archaic system with inches and feet and yards and it made us a super power so we don't need your mark and silly hats or metric system. stuart: the original mistake you made thirty-second the go before you went on this ranting shiel, you failed to mentioned there are three kinds of gallons in this world. there is the imperial gallon used by the british, there is the gallon used by the united states of america and one other which i can't think of. neil: thank you governor perry. i am just saying, i got to give this guy credit. if you are going to start a
11:41 am
crusade to challenge someone who is probably a 50-1 favorite to get the democratic nomination why not go along and just say it is going to be about going to the metric system? i can see that as a growling cried. i give him credit. there is a lot to be said. the whole world is on this. i point out and i know you still quietly and internally resent it, that we rebelled from your abrasive king them. so that we could have our rulers, our inches, our feet. stuart: are you done? 19 minutes from now you can get more of this if you are not bloody careful. thank you, neil cavuto. neil: you're quite welcome. stuart: king.5 minutes from now former governor doug wilder will be on with neil cavuto and 1:00 eastern. seinfeld star jason alexander
