"varney & company" begins now, stuart, have a great show. stuart: thanks indeed, maria. that 60 minutes interview with president obama now we know, american leads on climate change. good morning, everyone. steve croft did the interview and he challenged the president and it became rather testy at times especially when putin's leadership in the mideast came up. that's where president obama made that climate change comment. you'll be hearing a lot of that today. as that interview ran, iran tested long range guided missile. that may be against the deal. and a washington post reporter convicted of espionage. lanny davis, breaks news of his own, he's a democratic attack
9:01 am
dog and calls joe bide and buffoon and hillary clinton is scar afraid of carly fiorina. and a slide into second, you see, i do know something about baseball. "varney & company" is about to begin. match out. watch out. ♪ >> all right, take a look at the dow futures, we're going to be up ever so-- i'm going to call that pretty much flat this monday morning, remember, we're coming off a terrific week, what was it 600, 700 points up last week alone. best for the s&p 500 something like that, a great week. now, this is the largest tech deal ever. dell is buying enc for, wait for it, $67 billion in cash and stock. emc's a data storage company.
9:02 am
it shows you how valuable data storage is these days. how about the price of oil sitting just below $50 a barrel and the price of gasoline, well, it took a minor league down turn, 2.31, got it. let's get to politics, shall we? the bread and butter of this program i tell you that. trump, carson, cruz, fiorina, they're all anti-establishment candidates and combined put them altogether, they've got 63% of the vote. i'll break the numbers down for you, 63% going to outsiders. first the cbs poll, donald trump 27%, carson 21, cruz 9, rubio 8, jeb bush, carly fiorina, 6 of percentage points apiece and reuters has the poll for the democrats. listen to this, october 4th to october 9th what's that less than a week, hillary clinton's lead over bernie sanders falls 10 points all the way down to
9:03 am
41, well, her support is 41%. sanders 28, joe biden, who has not yet declared that he's running, and i don't know whether he will, 20%. not bad. coming up at 9:45, we'll have presidential candidate mike huckabee with us. he says he's going to go rogue in the next debate. you know i will ask him what that means. [laughter] serious stuff now to iran where that reporter for "the washington post" has been convicted. let me get this right, jason rison has been in prison more than a year on espionage charges. they'll appeal and they all it an outrageous conviction, in my opinion he is a hostage. now, that news comes just hours after iran tested a surface to surface guided missile with an 800 mile range. iran conducting that test on
9:04 am
the same day that its approved its side of the nuke deal. let's bring in fox fuse terrorism analyst walid phares. in my opinion, america has been humiliated and they're laughing at us. >> no, the regime is fooling the administration and congress and the debate and trying to fool the public. 800 mile range pretty much covering saudi arabia to the emirates, egypt, israel, obviously, turkey and even parts of russia, but they're friends, yes, indeed, while we were focusing on the issue of the nukes, they're developing what i call the dome, being able to protect what they will consider in the future, the nuclear missile. stuart: is it a vast expansion-- throw the russians into the scenario, is this a vast expansion of the iranian-russian military power in the middle east?
9:05 am
>> we will see it soon, but not just the development of missiles, but what will protect them. the russians after the signing of the nuclear deal with iran months ago declared they will be willing now, especially the eiranians are going to get a lot of cash, ready to sell them the anti-aircraft missile which means the iranians will have a missile and a dome protected by the russians missiles. stuart: i want you to listen to what president obama said on 60 minutes when he was asked about our failures in syria, roll that tape, please. >> i know you don't want to talk about this. >> talk about it-- >> i want to talk about this program because it would seem to show, i mean, if you expect 5,000 and you get 5, it shows that somebody someplace along the line made some sort of a serious miscalculation. >> you know, steve, let me just say this. >> it's an embarrassment. >> look, there's no doubt that it did not work. stuart: it seemed from that
9:06 am
interview, that the president's heart was just not into the syrian mission. >> well, of course, if you're negotiating again with iran, you cannot put too much pressure on iran's ally in syria, it's mathematical. for all of these years and months, we were in the serious in syria. and in addition we were not vetting well the individuals, we would train them and some would give them to isis, so the project was not very in the beginning. stuart: we're short of time and thank you for your appearance on our program. thank you, sir. >> thank you. stuart: i've got another sound bite from that 60 minutes interview. listen to what the president says about leadership. roll that tape. >> mr. putin seems to be challenging that leadership. >> in what way? let's think about this. >> he's moved troops into syria. he's challenging your
9:07 am
leadership, mr. president, he's challenging your leadership. >> steve, i got to tell you, if you think that running your economy into the ground and having to send troops in in order to prop up your only ally is leadership, then, we've got a different definition of leadership, my definition of leadership would be leading on climate change and international accord the potential we'll get in paris. stuart: okay, mary kissel is here on the last bit first, climate change? >> it's extraordinary. if you look at the threats that festered in the middle east today not just against our allies, but the united states. the creation of a terrorist caliphate that's growing every day, it's an immediate threat, a threat to europe. look at the refugee cries cities that europe is dealing with today. the president wants to focus on a maybe threat that many scientists contest that may
9:08 am
happen 100 years from now. it's extraordinary. we have a president-- i saw that interview i thought we have a president who has fallen down a rabbit hole, every loss is somehow a victory for this guy. he says he's helpless in syria, he's not helpless. i tell you one thing, putin changed the facts on the ground. the president says he failed. well, he didn't want to try. he could have enforced the red line, we could have done a no-fly zone. putin has been a leader and this president is a wimp and our policy is a failure and it's very dangerous to us and to our allies. ashley: that interview highlighted everything you just said his reaction to steve croft who thankfully pushed him. that was interesting. stuart: and that's interesting that steve croft, establishment media actually pushed him. >> the extraordinary thing he talked about putin and syria as if it's a contained problem. it's not a contained problem. we have to be involved otherwise it will come here. stuart: mary, stay with us.
9:09 am
more for you in a moment. i'm going to touch on the markets in a tangential sort of way. the minneapolis fed president says-- [buzzer] >> i didn't say federal reserve or fed, i've got to be able to say it, please. the president of the minneapolis branch of the central bank, how is that? [laughter] >> he says we should interest negative interest rates to give the economy a boost. that means you put money in the bank, they don't give back to you all of it. they don't give you in i interest, in fact, they take at that piece, that's a negative interest rate. here is kevin kelly, okay? now, the guy pushing this is mr. coacha lakota, the president of the minneapolis-- you know what i'm talking about. and i think this would be a way of getting a lot of money into the economy, do you agree with na? >> i completely agree and it's nice that central bankers are thinking about policies like this especially to get wage inflation going. we saw from the minute we hit the job numbers that we want
9:10 am
today, but wages have been stagnant. another central banker bill dudley said we'll focus on that, china, stronger dollars. what it will do, it will push the banks to put money into the system. stuart: if it happened. odds are-- >> they've done this in europe, it didn't work. stuart: that was to defend the currency, the swiss franc. ashley: but the game was to-- >> this is a terrible idea. wages aren't rising because you don't have enough monetary stimulus, they're not rising because there's no central growth. you don't want them to distort the economy any more than they have. stuart: stop the banks holding the money. >> banks will lend when you lift of regulations and allow them to lend. you can't have the central bank somehow manipulate the economy, manipulate credit. it's part of the reason we're not growing. >> it's a communication thing, it's the fed letting people know they're addressing everything they can do.
9:11 am
>> and want to turn us into japan? this will turn us into japan. has japan's monetary policy worked for 20 years? no, they haven't. stuart: i've got the buzzer and we've got to go. kevin, stay there, much more in a moment. how about this, a controversial play on saturday night making headlines. major league baseball suspends the dodgers chase utley for two games because of his slide into second that broke the leg of the mets infielder ruben tejada. utley is appealing the decision. ashley, i want to advance this story. ashley: yeah. stuart: if you change-- somebody wants to change the rules about sliding into decked -- second base and no contact. that would change that. ashley: it's a critical inning by the way, where the dodgers scored the winning run. and it goes to the commissioner
9:12 am
or joe torre who says no, that's a violation of a rule. what will happen as an outcropping, i think we'll see a rule change. stuart: where the detroit police is a certainty. you break up double play-- >> none of you thought i knew what i was talking about. >> did you study, stuart. stuart: i was told what to say. this is bad for a lot of people. a computer glitch, headaches caused for people flying southwest. jo ling kent, give me the story in case everybody missed it. >> an update on the southwest airlines continuing to warn about major delays this morning. the company says that technology issues are causing massive lines across the country. a spokman now says they have, quote, stabilized these issues. southwest is asking passengers to arrive at least two hours earlier and print the boarding pass before you get to the airport which you should do anyway and no word when they'll be fully back on track.
9:13 am
apple reportedly disengaged the news app in china. it's only currently available in the u.s. a, but when they try to use it when travelling to china, it doesn't work. and the king had a new recording "if i could dream", and michael buble and priscilla presley are behind this. are you going to buy it? >> no, i'm too young. i'm not the elvis generation. thank you very much.

9:17 am
>> attack dog lanny davis engaging in a free-flowing conversation on his way to this program. guy benson was nearby and heard every word and joins us now. i want to go through candidate by candidate what lanny davis has to say. first of all, joe biden. >> okay, first of all, this all happened on friday. i was on the train, and on fox news. i guess he was on the way to see you he had a few colleagues with him. this was not me eavesdropping,s they were having a loud conversation on the amtrak, another reporter heard it as well. the first name that came up and came up frequently, joe biden widely rumored to be getting in the race and davis was teeing off on joe, called him a buffoon and said all the goodwill and excitement about joe biden is partially due to
9:18 am
media bias in favor of joe against hillary in lanny dave's mind and because people have short memories, he said and a lot of americans view joe biden as a buffoon and it might come to the fore. there was another reporter, woodruff from the daily beast and she reported more details on this and contacted lanny for comment and he apologized to bernie sanders, not to joe biden. stuart: what did he say about carly fiorina? >> with carly. she was the only republican mentioned in this little rant. aside from donald trump who was sort of dismissed and chuckled about him briefly. lanny davis seemed pretty upset the way that carly fiorina has been criticizing and attacking hillary clinton and that's been, i think, one of the key elements of carly's campaign is being a relentless on-message biting critic of the former
9:19 am
secretary of state. lanny davis referred to these attacks as nasty, very nasty, he was upset about that. stuart: how about what he said about bernie sanders? >> he was very apoll jettic, what he said recording bernie sanders, called him a socialist and that he cannot get the nomination and basically calling him unelectable. stuart: why would he apologize for calling bernie sanders a socialist when he's a democrat ic socialist? >> he said a difference between a bernie sanders socialist or an other socialist. stuart: maybe he wants to work for-- >> i didn't get that. and it's unethical to listen to a private conversation and report it, what do you say to that? >> it was a public conversation, it was in ear shot of not one, but two
9:20 am
reporters in a public place, i i was not straining or leaning in, it's very, very easy to hear. if you're a confident and a long time advisor and a high profile one to a presidential candidate, a very prominent politician, you have to be circumspect and there have been a lot of reports about things said on the acela. loose lips sinks ships. stuart: that was our slogan in world war i. >> debby wasserman schultz saying the g.o.p. has a right wing agenda against women. >> 15 republican candidates left all of whom are trying to outtrump donald trump saying, yeah, let's kick women--
9:21 am
9:22 am
9:23 am
i just had a horrible nightmare. my company's entire network went down, and i was home in bed, unaware. but that would never happen. comcast business monitors my company's network 24 hours a day and calls and e-mails me if something, like this scary storm, takes it offline. so i can rest easy. what. you don't have a desk bed? don't be left in the dark. get proactive alerts 24/7. comcast business. built for business.
9:24 am
>> democrat national committee chair debby wasserman schultz teed off on republican. please roll the tape. >> 15 candidates who are left trying to outtrump donald trump let's kick immigrants out of this country and take health care from women. ashley: whale? >> you've got 60 seconds. >> it's the politics of fear
9:25 am
and smear. when your economic policies haven't worked you have to resort to try to scare the public. if democrat wanted to help women, they'd cut taxes and shrink the government. that's the best way to help women. we have a tax penalties on women, regulations that hurt business, job creation. why isn't she talking about that. ashley: good points all of those. schultz saying that the republicans are trying to out-right wing each other, they're trying to out-socialist. stuart: we're watching southwest, a glitch causing problems. and paying 18 billion to the customers of detective cars if i can call them that. and "varney & company" continues with the open bell in a moment. equals pretending to know wine. pinot noir, which means peanut of the night.

9:30 am
monday morning. remember, the dow closed friday at 17,084. it was up about roughly 600 points on the week. what a week it was. now, we're going to open this morning looking at the futures, indicating a virtually dead flat, ever so slightly higher opening. let's see how we go. the first trade is in, ever so slightly lower. down 2 points, down 4 points. let's see we go from here, not a huge move either way, at least not in the first few minutes. to analyze we have ashley webster, mary kissel, kevin, and shot shellady. kevin, you're on first. will we continue to move higher the rest of the year? >> we'll see what happens this week, especially with earnings, the banks were been coming out with earnings, a league guardment down 6 of% and the s&p is done 2 1/2%. they're indicative of what the earnings season is going to be
9:31 am
they're cutting costs and revenues aren't grown in the revenue environment where they're competing with each other. stuart: it's monday morning, don't slow me down. 18,000 by the end of the year, yes or no? >> i say yes. stuart: got it out of you. and look at the price of oil, it's sitting just under $50 per barrel. iran has test fired a long range guided missile and putin and his iranian allies seem to be taking control of the oil patch in the middle east. scott shellady, come on in, please, will when mideast developments start affecting the price of oil. i don't think we've seen it yet. >> well, i kind of think we have already seen it a little bit, stuart. we've got two things going on. number one we're bouncing off the lows and a sharp break that we've had of late. number two, i see a little bit of fear factor sneak back in the price. we could see it go up, 50-55. one thing, you have to remember
9:32 am
we haven't seen the growth, to drive thoo price. look around you, everybody you speak with all the big banks are downgrading our gdp and i think so are going to get worse from here. i don't think that we see 18,000 by the end of the year. stuart: what we're seeing in the markets, the price of gold reaching a three-month high. scott, to you again, it does imply some impact from developments in the middle east, correct? >> yeah, i think there's-- two reasons you don't want to-- reasons you want to own gold, if you see inflation, or number two, if you're worried about armageddon. but once that's true the system, i think that gold will come back its normal levels. i say this, and gold has been a tough one as of late and i say 1,000 before 1300. stuart: okay. kevin, come back in on the same subject, on gold. a lot of people ask me, shouldn't i put my money in the
9:33 am
turbulent times into gold. >> it doesn't produce cash flow, it's a stone and someone else is saying i'll pay you this amount in the future on it. stuart: you wouldn't touch it. >> no, it's not an investable asset. it's not a product-- >> it has no yield. eli lilly. nicole: not a good day, to treat cholesterol, they were in phase three and 12,000 plus patients, they're going to have a pull it. they're not getting a sufficient fine for it and charge of 90 million, an a result the stock is the number one loser in the s&p 500 and merck, another drug name, go the a downgrade from one of the analysts and that's a big loser
9:34 am
on the dow jones industrial average. that was cut over at jeffreys. >> they're being attacked by hillary clinton as well. >> nicole, thank you, indeed. and look at twitter, their ceo, jack dorsey, he's cutting jobs. that's the first thing he's done as the ceo. ashley: he said from the beginning, twitter needs to be more focus, which we take we need to call some workers. as of the last quarter, we've got double since the second quarter of 2013. he's said engineering team is too bloated. they say it's going to affect all departments within twitter, but he's trying to streamline it for more focus. >> incredible, a global company with 4100 employees. then we have apple, it's blocking its news app from everyone in china. mary, this seems to me like
9:35 am
apple is doing the censoring on behalf of the chinese government. am i too harsh? >> no, you're right. it's like cisco selling routers that china uses for the great fire wall. if apple is going to do this, they should do when google was in china. google told users you're not seeing the bull google. it's unfortunate that apple can't be as straight with consumers. stuart: i'm surprised that apple is sitting there. >> are you really? a lot of revenues come from china. stuart: i don't think there's impact from the china news. >> this stock which was all over the place, way up, way down, stuck in a tiny range there at 112. stuart: quickly, you buy it at 112? >> yeah, you buy it at 112 here. it's yielding basically more than 10-year treasury, faster than the u.s. government. let's put it that way. stuart: look at southwest airlines, please. they've got a computer glitch that's causing nationwide
9:36 am
delays, real problem, the stock is up, i don't know why. ashley, what's the latest on the delay? >>. ashley: well, they're working through it. lets me see, about 450 flights out of 3600 were delayed over the weekend. that's a domino effect. what they're saying, they're working through it and please give yourself at least two hours to get to-- before to get to the airport before your flight takes off, but following some of this on social media and some of the people trapped, a guy in vegas, on instagram, southwest airlines lining thousands of us outside, no water, no food, no sunscreen, pure hell. stuart: the worst pr. ashley: the stock is up. stuart: volkswagen stock, please. last week it was well under $30 a share and now it's at 30. it's actually up 6% today. the news back drop here is that senator schumer says the epa should slap them with the maximum fine. that's $18 billion for lying to consumers. the impact on the stock is not
9:37 am
negative, it looks like it's a plus. charles schumer goes after you and you go up 6%. not bad. anheuser-busch, inbev. they're raising to just over 108 billion dollars. >> this is the fourth attempt, by the way by ab inbev. and if it's not enough, every year one in three beers will be made by the company and more than 50% of the entire industry's profits. stuart: one in three beers sold worldwide. ashley: is made by the combination of these companies. stuart: that's an anti-trust. >> come on, the government will make up any excuse for companies consolidating in the face of competition. why are they consolidating? there are more--
9:38 am
there are craft beers and-- >> have you ever been as feisty as this. >> on columbus day, too. stuart: we value youren about. no cost of living adjustment for social security next year. cheap gas, that's the reason because cheap gas means no inflation so no cost of living adjustment. scott shellady come on into this one know the because you're a social security recipient, but because there isn't inflation. >> here is the deal, stuart. until we get our heads around this and, you know, we can mention it later, but there are a lot of strategies undergoing in the short-term industry that are mrapg on paying negative rates or negative rate pays. we're in a deflationary time and it does not surprise me that they're not going to get an inflation increase. anybody out there going on strining for an increase in your pay, that's crazy. that's not the environment we're in, look at the rest of the world. stuart: quickly the minneapolis
9:39 am
fed president says we should consider negative interest rates. this is for you, scott, negative interest rates, you put money into the bank and they don't give it back to you and pay no interest. what do you make of that? >> well, you know what is this i think it's kind of behind the curve here. for the last two weeks, both in europe and in the u.s., the amount of interest rate plays, we've traded hundreds and thousands of contracts here in chicago and in london, betting on negative interest rights in both euro dollars and-- that's where this is coming from, that's what we've seen happen here and i'd say he's two weeks late coming to the table with it. stuart: hear, you think it's a terrible idea. >> you cannot rely on nt central bank. it hasn't work everywhere in the world it's tried. you have to cut taxes, shrink government and get the regulatory agencies out of the business. the fed should stand up, you know what, guys, it's not our problem. it's your problem, mr. president, it's your problem congress. stuart: the problem with the
9:40 am
federal reserve, it's financed the policies of-- >> it allows them to borrow at nothing. >> one of the reasons, the fed staffers don't see 2% inflation by 2018. >> look at the inflation that we have, these policies are distorting price of money and how people allocate capital and they're harmful. >> and got it. scott, i want to bring you back in again. negative interest rates, you put money in the bank and they don't give it back to you. >> it's a horrible idea. i agree with miss kissel, we need the central banks out of this and have a fiscal stimulus like tax cuts or billions that corporations are making overseas. it's going that we'll talk about, remember the rally that we had last week was not on the back of strength.
9:41 am
we had a bad jobs number and we rallied on that. central banks, let's get rid of them >> last month first time ever, three-month treasuries went down to zero rate. stuart: you give them $100, and they give you $100 back. >> that's the first time it happened in history. i thought i was out on a limb talking to negative interest rates. >> no, no. stuart: that's right. great stuff, everybody, look at the big board, we are 11 minutes into the session this monday morning, columbus day, we're down 4 points, i'm going to call that dead flat. coming up, a water spout in florida causing chaos on the highway where it slammed into a mail truck. look at the maim. a contentious interview with president obama, his leadership
9:42 am
called into question. presidential candidate mike huckabee will gin us in -- join us in a moment with that. technology empowers us to achieve more. it pushes us to go further. special olympics has almost five million athletes in 170 countries. the microsoft cloud allows us to immediately be able to access information, wherever we are. information for an athlete's medical care, or information to track their personal best. with microsoft cloud, we save millions of man hours, and that's time that we can invest in our athletes and changing the world.

9:47 am
more of an outsider, i've never been in washington, never had a paycheck there. stuart: you've held an elective office. >> right, but this is somewhat confusing i think to voters when they ask do you really want someone to walk into the oval office who has never ever held elective office and maybe people do, but i want to make them think about that. would you let a doctor operate on you who had never been in an operating room? would you let a pilot fly you who had never been in an airplane? i understand people are disgusted with washington, i'm disgusted with washington. >> are you going to go rogue. >> being president is not an entry level job, stuart. stuart: i've heard you said you're going to go rogue in the next republican debate. what do you mean by that? >> well, i didn't say i was going to go rogue. that was the headline. what i said it's very apparent that in these debates you have to be assertive, you know, i like to play by the rules. i know that sounds crazy to

9:49 am
having to send troops in in order to prop up your only ally is leadership, then we've got a different definition of leadership. my definition of leadership would be leading on climate change and international accord, the potential that we'll get in paris. stuart: climate change, governor? >> you know, i've said many times, stuart, this president is obsessed with climate change while the rest of the world understands the real danger of islamic fanaticism. i think that he thinks a sunburn is worse than a beheading and most of us think it's nan sense. this president talked about a terrible economy. he's helped to lead us to a $20 trillion debt, totally flat in wages and i heard what you were talking about before and you can loan the government money and they won't give it back. what kind of economy has he led? and there's an old saying, stuart, it says this, that you may think you're a leader, but if you look around and nobody's following you, you're not a leader, you're just out for a walk.
9:50 am
this president is pretty much out for a walk. stuart: okay. governor, we eagerly await your performance in the next republican debate. you may not be going rogue, but you're going to stand out and we look forward to seeing it. governor mike huckabee, appreciate it. >> thank you, stuart. stuart: look at this, coming up, redskins now banned in california schools can no longer use the redskins team name and mascot. the play that has people talking, a hard slide and here is the question, should we ban the slide into second base.

9:56 am
torre steps in yesterday, no, this was an illegal slide and there's the injury so they suspend him for two games. >> had the umpire got it right, the mets could have won the game. >> if the umpire got it right, it would have been an interpeerns ca interpeerns-- interference and got the double play and-- >> if you change the rule sliding into second, you make the double play that much more likely to happen, don't you? . . >> yes, yes. what's interesting, my friend kevin burkhart from fox sport et tweeted out. to recap, a catcher with gear on cannot block the plate on a close play, but a middle fielder could get destroyed. stuart: so, you don't allow the midfielder on second base to stand in front of the base and
9:57 am
block the base, if he does-- ments you shouldn't be able to block it and there should be ramification of going on. i have the feeling what will come from this just like in football you have the tom brady puck rule or the buster posey rule. i think that the chase utley ru rule. ashley: if it wasn't in new york, but-- you take it out of new york, the nypd, the new york police department is watching social media and twitter to get a heads up what could place. i'll put even money on that mets pitcher harvey throws at one of the dodgers tonight. stuart: thank you, sir. up next with more on the contentious interview with president obama, maybe the media's love affair with the left is breaking down a little, maybe. and a nightmare for southwest travelers, we'll tell you what's behind massive lines because they're still there.

10:04 am
should be such an important issue compared to all that's going on elsewhere? >> well, first good job to 60 minutes for asking him tough questions. am i surprised by it? no, because this is a president completely obsessed with climate change above all issues, and i would make the argument the neglect to other issues. to think that climate change is more important than the debt situation, $18 trillion in debt, the fact that we have high unemployment in the united states and around the world and that there's a lot of worry of a second double-dip recession happenin. stuart: yeah. >> to think this is a bigger issue than terrorism is a bit delusional and frightening. by the way, sir, one other quick thing on this. if you ask the american people what are your major concerns and you look at maybe the top 20 issues that come up in those polls, climate change is usually around 19th or 20th,
10:05 am
so the american people do not agree with barack obama that this is a concern. stuart: is this a concern on our economic performance? put in various rules through the epa, about to go on later this year to paris where he will give away some money, and he'll commit us to another line of climate change policies. is this a plus or a minus for america's economy in the next year? >> well, this is economic -- committing here. this is unilateral economic did i say government. we've seen this routine for five or six years where the president goes to these international accords, he hears what he wants to hear in china, india, they say, yeah, we'll reduce our emissions, they're not doing this, stuart. we've talked about this many times. china and india are building ten new -- you know, electric plants for every one that we shut down. so even if we shut down a coal plant in america, which is something that barack obama
10:06 am
would like to do, it's not going to make a dent in the slight carbons in the atmosphere because china and mexico and europe are moving back towards coal. so this is a way of injuring the american economy without having any impact whatsoever. stuart: i want you to listen to what barack obama said about donald trump. listen to what the president said flights on 60 minutes. >> trying to get attention. he's the classic reality tv character, and this early stages it's not surprising that he's getting a lot of attention. >> do you think he's running out of steam? do you think he's going to disappear? >> i'll leave it up to them to make the decision. i don't think it's going to be the president of the united states. stuart: i don't think donald be. what do you think about that? >> well, when he calls him a reality tv character, it takes one to know one; right? the same thing could have been said eight years ago, a first term senator who has never
10:07 am
done anything with his life is going to be a president? that's a laughable proposition. i'm not a donald trump fan, but i would say he's more qualified to be president -- certainly more qualified than barack obama wn he entered office. so i think it's a little unfair to say he wouldn't know what he's doing -- he's the guy who has createdly this and created things, so i thought that was a little bit below the belt. by the way, i've said this before, and i'll say it again. imagine this. if donald trump was elected president in 2016, the two people with the biggest egos in america would be successfully the president of the united states. stuart: we hear you, steve, thank you very much. cost-of-living increases for social security recipients will not happen next year. no cost of living adjustment. our next guest says the economy has been propped up by consumers. joining us now karen. all right. if this is -- if you're right that the economy is basically being propelled and kept up by consumers, i

take it that no cost-of-living increase for tens of millions of social security recipients next year, that will be a negative for the economy. i'm not trying to put words in your mouth, or trying to get this into the conversation here, what do you say? >> well, yeah, inflation is an important part of the puzzle of the economy and the fact that we don't have inflation is concerning. it's concerning because it indicates the lack of growth. now, the consumer has been the bright spot in the economy, there's 70% of u.s. gdp, and they've been spending. and the reason they've been spending is the jobs market is good, the best jobs narcotic 15 years. stuart: whoa whoa whoa. wait a minute. what is it? 93million americans not working. the unemployment rate is down but waging are stagnant, middle america is losing ground. >> and wage growth. stuart: you can't say the job situation is good. you can't say that. >> well, it's better than. stuart: has been that's not good. >> rate we've seen in seven years.

stuart: that's not good. it's not a good recovery. >> no. it has not been a good recovery. but throughout this whole recovery, the consumer has been the game changer, and they have been holding it together. and that's why we have seen the latest gdp of 3.9%. but there are a lot of yellow flags out there. inflation being one of them. the lack of inflation indicates that there's not a lot of growth. and if there's not a lot of growth, we're going to see that spill over into the consumer segment eventually. stuart: okay. >> consumers like lots of inflation, they like the low gas prices but take a look at the latest jobs number. it was not a good jobs number. it was lousy. and august down as well. and we also see most importantly corporate profits really facing headwinds. negative growth in the second quarter and negative sales growth, and we anticipate third quarter is going to be negative as well. stuart: this is not good, karen. >> it is not good and what

the next republican primary. i think i am a one issue voter. who can win. you look at these outsider candidates. putting them up against national polls. putting them up against hillary clinton or bernie sanders. they do not do as well. jeb bush or marco rubio. that is a problem. we will not win these elections if we are an anti-woman, anti-immigrant party. sometimes you get comments like that. >> i think that mister trump would make a much better president than mr. obama. sometimes he says things that concern me. not for winning the nomination, but for winning the presidency. we have to win the presidency. this is about to who the next president of the united states is. they just do not do as well in those polls up against democratic components. stuart: can you say for sure that those bikini-clad women

>> initially, the dietary guidelines came out and they said they wanted to consider sustainability issues. it also oiled down to greenhouse gas emissions. it involves a lot of different issues. when you read that report, one of the things they focus on was resource use. i think about allocating, you know, allocated resources, one of the most efficient ways to do that is the price mechanism to tell us what things are more expensive. what resources we need to cut back on. reporting a top-down suggestion on how we spend resources. stuart: what would you do? if you are in charge of, i don't know, what kind of policy, let's say you are in charge of climate change policy. do this, do that, don't do this, don't do that. what would you do?
10:48 am
>> let that price mechanism do it. it is more expensive. that is telling us that it is using a lot. now, one figure may want to think about is sometimes prices do not reflect all the costs involved. maybe they don't reflect the cost of carbon or water use. resources are properly price. maybe even sometimes that we think about creative ways of making sure that these so-called externalities get pressed priced into the market. generally, let people make their own decision. stuart: does the government have a role in play this, this element should be concluded in the real place price of this? >> property rights well defined. that's a good example like water.
10:49 am
it does not properly include the price of water. water is not very well traded. people are not given rights over what they owned and given ways to trade. i think one of the things you can do is make sure that ownership rights are well defined. property rights are well-defined. we have a legal system that can sort out those challenges. there is a proper role for government to tell us what science has to say on such issues. providing information is a legitimate role for the government. stuart: you want on cow flatulence. well done, young man. thank you very much for joining us. we appreciate it. farm prices way down. record harvest. we have a live report from a farm in illinois. check this out. she said the most intricate ever made. here is a question for you.

stuart: climate change? the president had just been pressed on vladimir putin's challenge through his leadership on the middle east and he responds with climate change? in this new era of political plane speaking, let's speak plainly. putin has humiliated america, has the war in syria, allied with iran and advanced missiles. winning hands down. and president obama in retreat on the weekend the interview aired iran tested long-range guided missiles. are they breaking the nuke deal already? america admitted our effort to train syrians was an expensive failure and today we find iran has convicted washington post reporter, basically a hostage, of espionage and our president responds, well, we're leading on climate change. that interview will be watched over and over and over again in moscow, riyadh, baghdad,

11:03 am
basically. well, stuart, do you remember what he said at the time he announced the strategy. this is the strategy. it will work, it will gradually reduce the capabilities of isis and eventually lead to its destruction. now its, well, just giving it a try and never really believed in it the first place. you've got to think that people notice this. stuart: it's notice all around the planet and also what happened just very, very recently, over the weekend. iran is test firing an 800-mile range guided missile and today we hear that they've convicted a washington post reporter of espionage? i think they're laughing at us. i think they're just laughing in our face having just concluded a nuclear deal. am i going too strong on this? >> well, i don't think so. i mean it's possible that, you know, sentencing they'll see time served and send him home i suppose. but one would suspect the release of this man, and he is
11:04 am
a hostage, he's not legitimate accused, that would have been easy for iran to do at the time of this signal that we're entering into a new phase of relations. but everything that has come out of the iran in tyrone has said that they're not looking for a new era of the united states, they're looking to make t easier for themselves to do the mischief that they do in the world, and there's a lot of it. and they said repeatedly that they're going to keep doing what they're doing and now they're going to have all of this money that will flow to them because of this deal to do it with. so anybody think so that that is some kind of triumph i think is not looking at the same world that you and i are looking at. stuart: do you think foreign policy will be a significant element in the fourth coming presidential election? >> well, one would hope so, stuart, because so much in the world is troubling and worrisome and there's been such a record of weakness and failure on the part of this administration that you have to hope that people will look at that and say we don't want
11:05 am
this. elections tend to be about the home front and the economy and conditions as people feel them every day in their daily lives and a lot of what happens in the world is not by felt by people in their daily lives and sometimes people notice that if there's weakness, they'll vote for a strong foreign policy. stuart: but the thing is the opposite of retreat is not war and that's the argument that we keep coming up with is that the president keeps coming up with. last 20 seconds to you, sir. >> well, i would say we're strong in the world militarily, we are less likely to have to eventually use that military. it's when we look weak that we get these destabilizing atmosphere when people like putin and tyrone feel free to act. stuart: speak solve and carry a big stick. i believe that was truman. >> no. it was roosevelt. teddy. stuart: i was there for truman.

baseball. another store suspended chase after he did that big slide into second base. now, let me ask you this. leapt to change the rules about sliding into second base. i maintain that if you make it a no contact second-base slides, then you've changed the rules in a very significant way and basically make a double play a sure thing; right? >> well, you know, they've done it at home plate, stuart, they used to run over people, the catcher can get run over so they have to sit there and take it and these guys getting hurt, and i was for that and i have to be for this. i was at this point now, you don't go to baseball because there could potentially be about collision. you could say that about auto racing. but nears baseball, i think there has to be some honor among they've seen where you go i'm going to break his leg in order to avoid a double play even if the playoff is at
11:21 am
stake. i'm a mets fan, but if that was a met, i would say you've got to be kidding me. that's totally unnecessary and it changed the whole game. thrown out,. stuart: 30 seconds. it's possible that he will play tonight because of the timing of the appeal on the decision to spend him. you've got 20 seconds left. what happens if utley does play tonight in new york? >> it will be insane when he gets up and he's not going to start. they're going to knock it down to one game, that's the best case scenario, they're going to hear it today. they're trying to protect utley by trying to get him through the new york series, although they do have video tape to back up others and not face suspension. stuart: good stuff. and i'm going to review your new book too all right? >> thank you very much. stuart: brian kilmeade, everybody. on saturday night live. i believe mat, all of our stage managers has something to add at all of this. that's the man in the middle. >> i have one word for the

east. come on in, john hofmeister. i want your comments on this. i can see, john, down the road with putin in such a strong position allied with iran right in the middle of the oil patch. i can see real problems with the world supply of oil at some point in the future. can you? >> absolutely. now, we all know that russia needs much higher priced oil if their economy is going to get any kind of lift. stuart: yeah. >> as does iran. so you have this iranian, russian and then they could collectively control the quantity of oil that goes into the market and the work by the saudis to try to keep the oil price low could come to nothing because of the collaboration of the russians and the iranians. stuart: meanwhile we in america in large parts of america not allowed to frack for our own oil supply. and if we did at this point we're not allowed to export it to help our european friends. it seems like
11:28 am
president obama's got the wrong side of two -- two -- the same issue on both counts. >> well, he does, in fact. but you're not going to change his mind. congress is but an anthill to the president. he could care less what congress says because he could use his executive authorities through the commerce department to make it very difficult for any legislation to move forward and veto the threat, which he's done so citizens suffer from higher prices, the industry suffers 200,000 laid off workers in the industry suffers but that's not obama's concern. his concern is his legacy. and i would predict here, stuart, that his legacy when it comes to energy will turn into irrelevance about the time he leaves office. stuart: but his legacy also includes climate change. so he can say i favored climate change, i worked for policies that mitigate climate change, that's my legacy. not fossil fuels.
11:29 am
that's what he'll say. >> he can say that, but he's done nothing legislatively and if you don't legislate the kind of big rules, the kind of laws like the clean air act, the clean water act, which richard nixon engineered through congress, then his legacy will be for not because a future president will simply by executive fiat remove his regulations and substitute future regulations. so obama's failure to work with congress will turn him into a mostly irrelevant president. stuart: all right, john hofmeister, those are your last words today, but you will be back later. thanks i just don't joining us, john. thank you. meanwhile president obama says he's leading on climate change as iran fires off long-range ballistic missiles. what does the former director of the cia have to say about iran, climate change missiles?
