9:03 am
the trumpets, it's friday, 2.21 is the national average for gasoline. gas buddy joins us and he's got a forecast. meanwhile, we're losing a penny a day per gallon. good stuff. all right, i just love this stuff, i really do. big name american tech companies are set to move higher, much higher this morning, look at this, start out with amazon. it shows a sizable profit. it usually plows the money back into the business, not so much this time. sales up as well. that stock will top $600 for the first time today. and google, big profits and a $5 billion stock buyback, announcing it now has six different products, each with more than a billion users. watch it go above $700. facebook, now it's been running close to 100 a share, today, it will cross it. there's a lot to talk about, a lot of people saying that facebook goes much higher than 100, we are into that. microsoft, i own some of that.
9:04 am
and the numbers, higher. ♪ >> and 52 bucks a share, maybe 53. that's the best level in 15 1/2 years. market watcher hillary kramer is here on a wonderful, wonderful day. and do you go with my premise that american leads the world in that sector. >> u.s. tech dominates the world and that's what we saw last night and what we'll see when we see earnings from apple next week. google amazon beat on the top and bottom and with google having nice revenue, what we saw was youtube, for example, which google owns, that was a really-- those are positive numbers that came out there. stuart: stay there, because at 9:30, i want you to help us cover the opening of the market. you've got news from the big investment firms that they're going higher still.
9:05 am
safe it, that's kind of a tease for 9:30. ashley: jeff bezos, the co-founder now the third richers man in america. gates, warren buffett and bezos? >> yes, amazon stock is up 80% this year. stuart: i've got to move on, regretfully, i've got to move onto politics and like that, too. the at des moines register has a new poll, it shows ben carson in the leads over donald trump, the second time in a couple of days that we've seen in iowa ben carson leading trump. 28 carson, 19 trump and then we have ted cruz, and then all the way down to carly fiorina at 4%. that brings us to hillary clinton. on the hill yesterday. testifying before the benghazi committee. watch this. >> tell your family it's a tres tres-- terrorist a tack and not the american people. and tell the president of libya it's a terrorist attack and not
9:06 am
the american people and you can tell the egyptian president it's a terrorist attack, but you can't tell your own people the truth. stuart: come on in, the author of "clinton, inc.", that would be dan halper. welcome to the program. we watched it gavel to gavel yesterday. it seems that the revelation, if there was one, it was that. it was that on the day of the attack, hillary clinton knew it was a terror attack, but said, pushed the way forward, it was the video. that to me was the big revelation, how about you? >> i agree completely. the committee was able to produce e-mails that they had obtained, of course, took them a long time we know that back story. they were able to produce these e-mails, one from hillary directly to chelsea clinton saying that an al qaeda-like group committed a terror attack, i'm at the office late. the other was some sort of transcript or close to a transcript ever a conversation that hillary clinton had with the egyptian prime minister and
9:07 am
so, she was able to prove that hillary on the back end was saying one thing, but in public, to the american people, she was saying something completely different, it was inspired by this internet video that went viral and that produced the death of these americans, so it showed a certain amount of due duplicit. stuart: it showed that hillary clinton was quite a political person, forgive me for being harsh, sacrificing the truth fo maybe i'm going too far. that's the way it struck me. you're a hillary clinton critic, how about you? >> there are three elements to the benghazi committee, before the attack, during the attack, after the attack. before the attack, they were able to prove that hillary clinton was engaged when the
9:08 am
u.s. was engaged militarily, but withdrew as the situation deteriorated leading to the deaths of these americans. during the attack, i didn't think the committee was able to prove much of what went on. i thought after the attack, these e-mails really are damning, really suggest there was an immediate spin, political motivation to disprove this was a terror attack, but i will say the obvious, which is that a lot of the media had their minds made up. they bought into the clinton spin, which is that, you know, this was a totally political handle that had no bearing on the fact and political so they're calling hillary clinton the winner, i don't think they're assessing the facts of the actual hearing, what she said, whether it's true, whether it has basis in the facts and i think therefore, they're willing to call her the winner immediately. stuart: you're right. if you scan the establishment media no question they're calling her the winner and she did stick it out for over 11 hours.
9:09 am
daniel, thank you for joining us on an important day, we appreciate it. thank you. >> thank you. stuart: i'm staying on the hillary clinton hearing. congressman elijah cummings right at the beginning of the show if i can call it that, he called out republican candidate carly fiorina. listen to this. >> carly fiorina, said that secretary clinton has blood on her hands. everyone on this panel knows these accusations are baseless. from our own investigation and all those before it. yet, republican members of this select committee remain silent. stuart: joining us now at the deputy campaign manager for carly fiorina, sarah floreflore would you respond? >> what we saw was a great
9:10 am
performance, perhaps, but how formidable she'll be in the election. and we need someone who will hold her accountable. i think that's carly fiorina. stuart: senator cummings went after carly fiorina. >> because she's gone to hillary clinton and landing punches. stuart: she said hillary clinton has blood on her hands. can you back that up? >> as your previous guest said before the attack she had completely disengaged from libya, they asked for security, weren't given security. the stack of e-mails from 2011 versus 2012 was telling and we know after the fact that she knowingly lied to the american people. of course, we also know that she's knowingly lied about her e-mail, her server, classified information on it. i think there's a pattern here and i think it's why the american people are sick of political insiders as much as she'd like to portray herself
9:11 am
as outsider. stuart: look at a new poll from the des moines register from iowa, ben carson leads trump, 28-19. about you look right there, carly fiorina is down there at 4% support. she is slipping. your reaction to that poll, please, sarah? >> you know, i think in d.c. and new york, perhaps, the horse race is really interesting, but if you back out a little when we started this race on may 4th, she was at 0%. we were in the undercard debate in august, had to fight our way to the main stage debate last month and now in the fourth podium next week at the cnbc debate. so, i think we really are pleased with our trajectory. we're looking forward to the debate. the more people hear from carly the polls also show the more they're interested. i'm not surprised that one debate wasn't enough to rocket us in front. we haven't been sticking in the headlines, but we have been doing town halls in iowa and new hampshire and south carolina and answering voters questions. stuart: okay.
9:12 am
>> we've got 100 days out and he think we're in a good spot. stuart: that's interesting spin. interesting spin. not being perjorative, but that was spin. sarah flores. thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having me. stuart: coming up we are going to be talking to the former education secretary bill bennett. he's calling for a return to conservative values. however, outsiders, that will be trump and carson, they lead the pack. do they measure up to bill bennett's conservative values? he's on the show next. but what if you could see more of what you wanted to know? with fidelity's new active trader pro investing platform,

>> well, take a look how this mark's going to open. why don't you? look at it, it's going to be up another triple digit. 300 points up yesterday and another 130 maybe at the open today. we're headed to 18,000-- we're very close. what's doing this?
9:16 am
big name tech company coming out with stellar earnings and china trying more financial stimulus. they love that on wall street. up she goes, another 130 points. a few minutes from now. got to get back to politics, my next guest is bill bennett, an author of a great new book, america the strong. all right, you want to return to core conservative values in this country. i got it. but the two leading republicans in the race at the moment, donald trump and ben carson, do they have the core conservative values? look, there's the poll. start with trump. does he have core conservative values? >> i don't know for sure, i have been looking at the record and it's not conservative-- >> and romney they said about that because he changed one major thing, abortion. with trump you're talking about half a dozen, a dozen things, everything from recently eminent domain, goodness gracious, created a stir. single payer, impeach bush, it
9:17 am
goes on and on, he is he got the takes of the public and somebody said it and i think they said it well, it seems like the only guy big enough to address the kind of worry that the american people have. stuart: list it for me, can you give me the top three conservative values, do it like that. >> in the book we have an acronym flint, like the flint rifle, freedom, liberty, international values-- >> who is going to argue with that. >> nobody running for president now. if you take a man as you should in the totality of his action, who is conservative and who is not. ben carson, i don't think this is' any request he that he's conservative and also has tremendous staying power because the more you see him, how can you not like this man and approve of this man, you want him to approve of you. stuart: that's true. i've known ben quite well on the program. >> you'd like to be thought of
9:18 am
well by ben carson, and smile. stuart: do you think he could win? >> yes, i think he could win, actually, i think he could win. i think he could draw a lot from the other side because he's again, very appealing, this guy. stuart: outside of trump and carson the frontrunners at the moment, the established politicians in the race, who is the conservative you would put your money on? >> i think several people. i'm surprised rubio hasn't risen more quickly, but he's not, again, i'm using the size thing. he doesn't seem big enough yet, large enough to fill the screen and frustration and anger is so deep that trump, you know, fills that. he satisfies people's longing for someone who will take them on because he takes them on. is he a great business man? you tell me, i've been talking to people in new york, is he really a great business man? very few people i've talked to said, yeah, he is. stuart: he's very entertaining. >> that's what i hear, very entertaining, but if he's a great businessman, that's an
9:19 am
important claim for what, given the country's problems. stuart: america the strong is the name of the book. you are the authority. >> yes, sir. stuart: on sale today. >> yes, sir. stuart: been out there a couple of weeks. >> out a couple of weeks, doing well. thank you, stuart, great to be back. stuart: coming up, we have' got a man sentenced to jail for using folk poker chips at atlantic city casino. you're not going to believe how he tried to hide the evidence. it's a big story and long story, but actually have got it next.
9:20 am

9:23 am
itch. stuart: why not take a look at how we're going to open. when you are going to open up triple digits, you look how we're going to open after a 300 point gain yesterday. stay tuned, we'll take you to the opening bell. here is life imitating art. carrie underwood made a hit in 2005 with when he cheats" and this is in the media. >> and the woman is beating up
9:24 am
the car when her husband she found out cheat. and this is her car, and she was upset that the husband sat in the car with the mistress so she's beating up that one. stuart: got to move on. a fine story there. now this, a north carolina man sentenced to five years in prison for bringing millions of dollars of counterfeit poker chips to atlantic city casinos. he's going to pay 1/2 million restitution and go to prison, but he has a plumbing bill and ashley will explain. >> love this story, talk about a royal flush. 42 christian of north carolina took all the chips, and he got about 800,000 of the chips in the system and suspected they're on to me. what am i going to do. tries to flush them down the toilet. it clogged up the toilet and water fell into the room
9:25 am
beneath and what they foun, the fake poker chips in the plumbing. stuart: he got caught because he flushed them. he didn't know if they did until they flushed. five years in prison. ashley: yeah, half a million in restitution to borgata. stuart: it's fake. ashley: he turned up with millions. stuart: and got it. now, moments away from the opening bell. why are we up so much? there's a china angle for that one, too, china is opening the door to more, what's the word, money printing. that works. we're going up. amazon, look at that, it will cross 600 a share in a couple of minutes. sketchers, you're about to see that stock lose about a quarter of its value and we'll tell you why in a moment.
9:26 am
♪ i built my business with passion. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy for my studio. ♪ and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... that's huge for my bottom line. what's in your wallet? i use what's already inside me to reach my goals. so i liked when my doctor told me i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me. with once-weekly trulicity. trulicity is not insulin. it helps activate my body to do what it's supposed to do

9:29 am
>> a lot of the media had their minds made up. they bought into the clinton spin, which is that, you know, this was a totally political panel that had no bearing on the fact this was all political so they're already calling hillary clinton the winner.
9:30 am
i don't think they're assessing the facts of the actual hearing, what she said, whether it's true. stuart: you look at the establishment media and they're all over hillary, she won, they say. let's get to the market, shall we? the opening bell is about to ring and we are going to go up big time again. we have china cutting rates. that is fueling the rally. and we've also-- we're up 59, 65, we're going up. this market is going up this morning in the next few minutes and we also had big name technology companies, american technology companies, which would go to the moon this morning and starting with amazon, would you look at that? that's up 9%, huge gain crossing 600. 614. i don't care, i'm calling it google, 750, 10% higher. how about facebook? i know that name. facebook is now hit 101 per share.
9:31 am
ashley: highest ever into the hundreds. stuart: first time ever. can we make time for microsoft? i own some of that. there you go, look at that. and i live in hope. ashley: you're smiling. stuart: 52.83 on microsoft, it's up 4 bucks, okay. joining us to dissemble all of this, ashley webster, liz, and scott shellady in chicago. hillary, are you buying amazon-- let me rephrase that. you've got an investment firm that says it's going higher than $6 a share. >> we've got an upside in amazon, all of this development, going web based. all of the consumer loyalty programs. stuart: who says another 20%? >> goldman sachs, goldman sachs says 20% and they have about 15 reasons why, but fundamental reason is that amazon has been able to capture the market.
9:32 am
all the market share, and they have better prices for consumers. stuart: i'll do the math 20% from here would be about $750. >> top line liz: the joke on wall street. they're the most profitable not for profit company. and amazon more than half of the operating profit comes from server, cloud computing. and that's half of the profit and that's firing up google as well and microsoft. stuart: they made amazon made money liz: yes, ding, ding, ding. stuart: plow it into the company liz: not from the retail, from cloud computing. stuart: google, up 60 bucks, 8, 9%, what does goldman sachs say about google? >> here, you have another 20% upside. you'll probably see $875 here, the important point is that
9:33 am
google, well, let's call it alphabet. it's turned youtube into a promising, growing revenue base. stuart: youtube stands out to you. >> you go through the numbers liz: they could be google movie and tv studio. >> this is what instagram is to facebook. stuart: my head is spinning here. scott shellady in chicago, now, are you going to-- all right, do we go to facebook here? we're at 101. ash, what are they saying about that? >> the earnings come out next week and they're picked up in the rising tide of the tech sector. and to hillary's points on instagram. they could hit 400 million monthly active users, it's a huge deal for them. >> the big red herring here is apple next week. that's the one tech we're waiting for, i'm very positive, i'm optimistic and that could really set us going strong for
9:34 am
the nasdaq to have an amazing finish to the year. stuart: scott shellady, come in, please, because my headline today was american technology companies rule and i think i'm right in saying that. but i'm putting this in the context of a sea of negatives about the global economy, and money printing here and money printing there. it's two stories, isn't it? america runs technology, the rest of the world is wallowing in printed money. what say you? >> i agree with you 100% and it's good that you're having the talks about single stocks because that's how you're going to be a little more careful going forward. i like the tech sector obviously in america, but i'm telling you right now, stuart, the signs of weakness are around us and you will get better prices for everything you just mentioned on the show. we've got china cutting rates again today. why are they cutting rates? because with the gdp of 6.9%? let me ask you that. there's only one answer and the answer is it's not 6.9%. the other issue we have is the reason we rallied yesterday in the stock market is because of
9:35 am
more weakness in europe. now, i can tell you, i'm here in chicago and the pit in europe is already trading at negative interest rates, stuart. so, all of this week that surrounds us, things are good and you'll get better prices. >> the s&p 500 index turned positive for the year. back to you, you think it's short-lived, it doesn't work in the long run? >> at some point in time, stuart, bad news is bad news, i'm sorry that i have a common-sensical background, but we're rallying on this. cutting interest rate, it might be a good thing? it might be in the short-term, but long-term it's not. >> the top line numbers on amazon and google, those are about businesses that are successful and they're yielding. stuart: the an argument will continue. i've got to turn away from the
9:36 am
winners and i've got a big time losers sketchers, what's up with sketchers? nicole: they came out with sales numbers that rose 27%, but they did not meet the street's estimates. the selloff is huge, 30%. they've seen, actually some sales number growing quarter over quarter, people are looking for more sporty footware. that's skechers is. they did miss the numbers, but the stock is a winner this year, it more than doubled since april. even with the move. stuart: another loser, pandora, that surprises me, that's a big loser, look at that, down 38. can you explain this one? what happened? >> so pandora came out and turned out they had to settle music from before 1972. sirius xm did this for over 200 million and now pandora settled
9:37 am
with the coalition, sony, columna, warner for the old time songs and cost them 90 million and that's why they're a big loser. below $12. stuart: a drop and a half. >> the bottom line with pandora, the competition is apple. apple has the radio streaming and-- >> i'm not letting any more time go by and we'll discuss apple. it's $53 a share. we've been waiting since 2000 for this. >> a long time. >> now, this is old tech, but it's making a comeback. >> yes. stuart: do you think it's-- is it a valid comeback? is it real? >> not only is it real, it's notable and commendable, this is company that was able to
9:38 am
morph from being a pc serving company, software, into an enterprise company and that's-- the cloud computing liz: amazon and google-- >> hillary, is that the whole story, it's a cloud computing company. >> yes, it's a server forum. stuart: i'm not going to be-- >> my company, we just went last month onto a microsoft-based exchange server. stuart: scott shellady, are you going to rain on my microsoft parade as well? i mean, you know, go on, do it. >> no, here is the deal. i like the companies that we're talking about and i like microsoft, i think we are going to be moving from the cloud to now big data as well and that will also be a good thing. but at the end of the day, when we have the flush, with i we will have at some point in time when bad news really comes out to be bad news, you'll get the companies at better prices. i'm not jumping on and chasing the rally. stuart: i hope you have a nice
9:39 am
weekend. [laughter] look at gnc, and vitamin chain, i guess you could call it that. boy, did they plummet yesterday. there was at that you can about products tainted. >> and some have said you've hidden speed in your products. stuart: speed as in amphetamines? liz: speed, super burn, weight loss, body building products, bad for gnc, touting them as natural and plant-based when they're not. they're pharmaceutical level drugs, these ingredients. that's kind of what the ingredients are called. stuart: those are allegations. >> those are allegations and gnc has taken a hit. stuart: how about twitter? that's an american tech company that's not enjoying anything of a rally. the new chief, jack dorsey, he's going to give some of his stock to employees, what do you think of that?
9:40 am
>> 1% of the overall stock out there. he was putting it into an equity pole for the employees and he's done that before with his company square, the digital payments company and he says, look, he had a quote. i'd rather have a smaller part of something big than a bigger part of something small. sharing the wealth. stuart: the stock is at 29, not sharing in the big rally. i've got another one for scott. the imf says, saudi arabia is blowing out-- blown away all of its cash because of low-- low oil prices, they're burning up the cash they've got. do you make anything of this and why i'm seeing oil at 44 today, scott? >> well, number one, it's that we don't have-- we've got quadruple the supply and double the demand. it's a supply and demand issue, number one, number two, yes, they're probably going to a deficit and yes, probably going to have to run their government like we run ours at some point in time so you see that stock
9:41 am
or oil price get back above 80 and i might be as olds t. boone pickens when it's above 80, but right now it's not going to go high anytime soon because we don't have economic engines driving it we still have supply and saudi arabia and opec looking for market share to put us out of business. stuart: spectacular coverage from scott shellady from chicago liz: not the rest of the team? >> the rest of the team was okay. he was good. [laughter]. all time high there, 101, a lot of-- am i hearing buzz, i am, that facebook's going to go a lot higher than $100 a share? >> facebook going higher. there are estimates up there 130, $135. stuart: is this from reputable big names? >> from the top business banks, they're looking at the numbers and they are seeing that it's possible, especially with facebook when they see
9:42 am
instagram and how instagram is on social media. they know how to monetize. it continues to gain-- >> we're waiting to see stuart on facebook. >> and i-- >> going to wait a long time. >> it's young and that matters, those demographics, a 10-year-old and 25-year-old. stuart: you're into this. i've never seen such enthusiasm by hillary kramer. i always called you hillary clinton, like i'm sure a lot of you do. hillary kramer. why don't we check the big board and get me out of this.

you know, the families of these victims, ambassador stephens and the others, they had a long couple of years waiting for the truth. she may have gotten applause this morning. it will be the american people that pass judgment on whether or not secretary clinton has been honest with the american people. i think that the evidence shows that she has not. >> reports outside of any factual revelation. that judgment is probably that she won. she came out of 11 hours of grilling and testimony unscathed. very important in presidential politics. you have to like and admire that person. >> there is no question about it. she has been doing this for a very, very long time.
10:48 am
i have questioned her myself in committee hearings. she was very poised. very calm. very self-assured. the american people are smart. the american people are a lot smarter than sometimes politicians like to give them credit for. they heard what was said yesterday. they now know that secretary clinton knew on the night of the attack that it had nothing to do with the video. she allowed that narrative to advance. still today has not been forthcoming to the families. >> do think that part of the fault was -- they covered it live on this program yesterday. all over the place. >> i do not sit on that committee, stuart.

. stuart: there was a
11:00 am
significant revelation that the benghazi hearings yesterday and it says a lot about what kind of president hillary clinton would make. she would be all politics all the time. just like president obama. just like bill and barack, the spin would never stop. on the night of september 11th, 2012, hillary clinton knew right from the get-go that the attack that killed our ambassador was an organized terror attack. she sent an e-mail to her daughter chelsea saying an al-qaeda-like group had done. and called egypt and said it was a planned attack, not a protest. that's not what she told the public. remember this was september 2012 just a few weeks before the presidential election. the white house team had been saying bin laden was dead and al-qaeda on the run. a terror attack on the anniversary of 9/11? that would have been politically inconvenient to say the least. so the spin began.
11:01 am
the state department under mrs. clinton started putting out a different line. it was the video that inspired the protest. that was picked up and amplified by susan rice in a now famous tv interviews. hillary clinton knew that was not true but she said nothing. the president also blamed the video but, again, hillary said nothing. this is a classic example of a politician sac sacrificing the truth, truth took a backseat to winning votes. it worked. president obama won. but now the truth is being revealed, and it was her own e-mails that did it. ambassador stevens was killed in a terror attack. hillary clinton knew it but never said it. instead she allowed a lie to percolate through the system, and she did it for political gain. that was the big revelation today, and that tells you a lot about what kind of president hillary clinton would make. ♪ ♪

11:03 am
amazon, google, facebook, microsoft. all of them big names in technology, all of them at new highs as of right now. i want to get back to hillary clinton, the presentations yesterday before the benghazi committee. her answers this is my opinion were telling. very telling about what kind of president she would be. i maintained in my take a moment ago that she would be very, very political. fox news digital politics editor chris is here. chris, i'm basing my opinion on that one revelation, which was that she knew it was a terror attack right from the get-go but put out publically that it was essentially the result of a video. i'm saying that she was playing politics for the sake of getting votes, and you say what? >> well, you could base it on that, or you could base it on anything in the last 40 years. you've got -- you have ample evidence about what -- how political hillary clinton is and has been and how divisive
11:04 am
of a figure she has been in american public life and all the way from her time when her husband was running for attorney general in arkansas up until this very day in her second run for the presidency of her own. so that's definitely been her mo. now, in this case she would say or she did say yesterday, well, look. al-qaeda claimed responsibility at the beginning and then that changed and. let's face it. the moment she was on stage with the caskets of the americans who were killed in a raid on a compound that was under her control that was under her dominion as secretary of state and she was talking about the video, and she was emphasizing those things, still looks terrible, and it looks like a cynical choice. stuart: do you think that revelation has legs going forward? are we going to hear anything more about this? >> we will but we will continue to hear the same response from the clinton
11:05 am
campaign and the obama white house. in this case united in common cause and they will say the same thing. the intelligence was shifting, we thought one thing at a certain minute and a different thing at a different time and the videos still mattered and go away because you're a cook and nut and you probably watch fox and are a bad person. that's what they'll say. stuart: i don't want to get off message but i want to look at that latest poll. ben carson now for the second day in a row ben carson leading trump. has trump stalled? >> well, he hasn't stalled. he's slipped. and what we see -- and these are the two best iowa polls really, the des moines register are really the two best polls out there and what you're seeing in the des moines register poll is that carson has always been the choice of the conservatives, number one with the conservatives in iowa. and now you're seeing some religious conservatives have questions about trump, the poll surveyed people do you think donald trump is sincere
11:06 am
in his christianity? is he asess? 47% weren't sure and then basically tied they thought he was lying and not telling the truth about his faith. stuart: chris on a friday morning. thanks so much for joining us, chris, we'll see you again real soon. >> you bet. stuart: i'm going to stay on the benghazi hearings and bring in tammy bruce. all right, tammy, the mainstream media is saying universally that hillary came out of this unscathed and that she flat out won. you say. >> i think it's obvious. the american people are going to make that decision and she reinforced the problem, which korissa luted to, is the issue of whether or not you can trust her. when people are asked why don't trust her, they don't have a specific thing, they just have a general sense. so the american people -- those who were interested and then they see the clips, and it's clear that once again she lied, it's also clear that she is. stuart: what did she that's a strong word. she lied.
11:07 am
that's a very strong word. >> that's how the american voter sees her. but the other shocking element was when it was clear in a e-mail that chris stevens was trying to buy british barricades to protect himself and his team, she laughed and said she applauded his entrepreneurial spirt, and that resonates with the american people. wow that's just wrong. and when it comes to the back and forth, they might not look at the details. the media in a way is protesting too much i think about how fabulous she was. i think that this is going to do some damage in the long ru. stuart: can you be objective? >> i worked on the clinton campaign in 92, i'm a former democrat, yeah. stuart: you're objective in this? >> i'm a feminist, and i want -- i would want everyone to do well. this is damaging for the process in general. it does not speak to that we've got the best people moving up in this country.
11:08 am
the republicans are of course doing better -- the latest news i think donald trump would be a better president than ben carson, i'm concerned about carson but i'm liking carly fiorina at the moment of course. but all of this is very interesting but the american people are thoughtful, and i think their opinion about hillary is correct, and it's going to stick. stuart: okay. we hear you and you'll stay for the hour i think. >> i'd love to. stuart: staying on the hillary question and the question of distrust does the public trust her, bring in democratic strategist alexis who is right here in new york with me. alexis, welcome to the program. >> thanks for having me, stuart,. stuart: now, i think she does have a problem with trust, that's what the polls show but we don't have a poll this morning about what people felt last night. do you think she turned the corner yesterday? >> i think hillary has had a fantastic couple of weeks. stuart: she has. that's true. >> until yesterday. stuart: i would agree with that, and i think i'm being objective. >> okay. i think that with the american -- what the polls will show tomorrow or whenever they are released after
11:09 am
yesterday's 11 hours of barging, $5 million of taxpayer dollars spent to basically uncover as we know gowdy offered virtually nothing new about the hearing . stuart: hold on a second. >> that she's going to be see. stuart: what did she not accurate. >> as a master of -- stuart: okay. >> understanding -- stuart: explain this to me. on the night of the attack, hillary clinton knew that it was an al-qaeda-like group that had done it, and she sent sought an e-mail to chelsea, her daughter, which said precisely that. the next day she called egypt's president and said it was not a protest, it was a terror attack in so many words. and yet publically she was saying it was the video. that is misleading in the extreme. some people are saying she flat out lied. i'm not going to go that far, but she was certainly misleading. how does she get over that? >> i think that all of the records that we've seen around the relationship between the protests and the video as well as the attack is that they
11:10 am
were mutually reinforcing. and -- stuart: she knew from day -- she knew in the first hour -- she said in the first hours it was a terror attack and then went out there and said it was the video. and she was still sticking with that when she met the families of the victims and still sticking to that with susan rice went out there on television and the president went on television. >> right. and my point, stuart, is that -- actually aquinn to what chris said because i do believe what the commentary on this is correct that things were unfolding, that's what we saw yesterday as she gave these detailed pieces in her incredibly impeccable memory around this was pretty insightful. i think if anything the trust deficit is lying with the gop leadership and the fact that they have had continued hearings on this for the last 18 months and nothing has been yielded. and so i -- you know, i don't know. i think the fact that she submitted to being governed is what the american people will respect about her and that's why she showed up so strongly yesterday. stuart: she got a great reception at her women's meeting this morning.
11:11 am
i'll tell you that. alexis, thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate it. >> thanks for having me. stuart: it has been a theme we've been on all day long. american technology leads the world, yes,ds. google, facebook, amazon, microsoft, the stocks reflect that worldwide leadership. and up next, another example of why american technology is the premier technological engine in the world. robots here on the set after ths so what about that stock? actually, knowing the kind of risk that you're comfortable with, i'd steer clear. straight talk. multiplied by 13,000 financial advisors it's how edward jones makes sense of investing.

stuart: hurricane patricia getting close to making landfall to mexico, this is the strongest storm they've ever seen. so joining me bjorn. everybody saying it's a huge storm, the result of climate change, global warming, what say you? >> well, i say we know that we are expecting fewer but stronger hurricanes toward the end of the century. so this could be a tiny part of that. but what we have to remember is if you actually want to do
11:23 am
something about hurricanes, the vast majority of what you can do is adaptation. remember if you live in rich florida, hurricanes hit regularly but you don't have much life loss. whereas if you live in a poor country like you have tens of thousands of people die from hurricanes, and you destroy the economy. this is all about being rich and robust. stuart: so to summarize here a tiny part of this monster storm is the result of what we now call climate change. okay. >> it could very well be, yes stuart: all right. we'll take that. now, i want to ask you about your article in the wall street journal. and you're writing immoral environmentalism. i think you say that poor nations don't need solar paneling, they need basic food and medicine. lay out your argument for me real fast. >> well, fundamentally we're spending more and more dollars on climate.
11:24 am
right now we estimate we spend one in four dollars on climate, and that's the last thing they want us to focus money on. so essentially you're giving people who are for a, they don't don't have education, who's lacking health care, you're giving them a solar panel. that's not very moral. the point here is to say we could help them much better if we focused on the very simple things like dealing with it. stuart: i think i can get your position saying that climate change is rule and the solutions we come up with it don't work. that's pretty much your position, isn't it? >> the solution we have right now work at very high cost. and at the same time we have less and less other problems we need to fix and the poor people in the world are telling us please help us fix those first. stuart: all right, bjorn, we did hear you, the phone connection wasn't great but we did hear you. and we take your point. >> great. stuart: that's the guy.
11:25 am
any comment there? >> maybe the phone line was getting warmer there for some reason. now, look, what they have with all due respect to the guests, he says probably guessing that that's the case. the fact of the matter is that the national oceanianic and atmospheric administration says there's a town ward trend in frequency in hurricanes normally global warming would cause the hurricanes because the difference in the weather and the notion. we know that. we also know there are has been a 17-year static framework when it comes to the temperature. that's not just a lull. that's a generation of no warming temperatures. so the science when we talk about science disputes the nature of this argument. hurricanes happen because it's called the weather. and planet earth. yeah. stuart: we hear you. >> shocker. stuart: you always surprise me on this kind of thing. >> i like facts as opposed to -- i like feelings too but when it comes to science, facts are very important. stuart: well, you know i'm a feelings kind of guy.

11:31 am
the arguments by the left for wanting regulation for the industry which is bad news. the fact of the matter the u.s. attorney is investigating him, a foreman company that he had founded and was fired from for some kind of thing, he denies wrongdoing. and there's also premise, i know ashley has this, they're offering the same drug in a compounded frame which he rates the price on for a dollar. >> $100 pill bottle, 99 cents each. what they use compounds approved by the fda and they can make generic versions of the pills out there, they can remake this, which is the one for $750 for 99 cents. stuart: that will put him out of business. >> and a decent price. stuart: and capitalism works. >> it does indeed. stuart: right there. i feel better now. all right. one more? ashley: i just want to say something very interesting,

stuart, regarding the jeb bush campaign. fox news that the bush campaign is making huge cuts including the removal of staff, canceling fundraisers, cutting 45% of its budget. just another indication of the struggling campaign of jeb bush across the board. stuart: that's huge. >> and fundraisers. stuart: i believe we have with us now steve, louisiana republican, and i know we were going to talk about yesterday's hillary hearing. congressman, forgive me for pivoting very quickly here. i don't know whether you heard that news but je jeb bush's campaign has just instigated gigantic cuts in staffing and expenditures almost across the board. can i have your reaction to that, sir? >> well, stuart, good to be with you. i just heard it but, you know, clearly you're going to see changes in the presidential field for the next weeks and months ahead until you get to february will you actually get real voting in iowa and then it moves very quickly affiliating.
11:33 am
so i'd expect more changes to where it's going to be but ultimately where premium going to vote. the most conservative candidate to win to be our presidential nominee and let's go win the white house. stuart: it is a setback, isn't it? for guys who made their names in politics. the frontrunners are guys who made their name in business and carly fiorina made a name in business and ben carson's a doctor. this is a blow to you guys, >> no. i think it's actually a good thing that voters want somebody whose got real world experience when you contrast it to a president who came in as a community organize we are be never had any legislative accomplishments and ultimately has been a disaster for our economy, for our country, for our national security around the world. so i think somebody with real-world experience is going to be very effective as president. i want to get a republican. again, the most conservative who can win and that's what this whole nominating process is about. let them go out there and inspire people and state their case. stuart: i'm sorry. i kind of aambushed you there with this news about jeb bush.
11:34 am
i'm sorry that we pivoted so quickly. but i needed to do that. i want to go back to the clinton hearings yesterday and, again, i'm going to sound like i'm ambushing you but it seems to me that the republicans really blew this one. the questioning was all over the place, it wasn't precise, it wasn't focused, it wasn't dynamic and, you know, hillary comes across as the winner. what say you? >> well, stuart, the whole purpose of this has always been about getting out the truth, and i think there was more truth that got out, more things that was not been told before, and i think we're going to continue to find more things as they get more documents, more e-mails, but i do think you saw some contradictions, even in secretary of state clinton's testimony yesterday. and this is going to continue on as we get all the facts, tray gowdy has done a great job of focusing on the facts, and it's not over. he's going to keep working until they find out everything that happened in relation to the four americans who were killed on that tragic day.
11:35 am
stuart: it was revealed yesterday, i think this was the big revelation that on the night of the attack, september 11th, 2012, hillary clinton knew that it was a terror attack. and made a call to the egyptian president the next day saying -- it was a terror attack. but at the same time. >> yeah. stuart: she was going out there saying and encouraging the rest of the administration to say it was the video that did it. now, i said that is putting politics ahead of the truth. the real question is does that have any legs? will this be revealed further? >> well, stuart, that was one of the many contradictions that has continued to be exposed from this investigation that clearly secretary of state clinton and so many others underneath are in the state department and in the white house we're trying to say this was about a video in the days after when, in fact, they knew. and of course it's been revealed now in the e-mails that secretary clinton herself knew that this was a terrorist attack and ambassador stevens had been asking through the proper channels to get more security for a long time and that request was denied.

. stuart: okay. >> by secretary clinton and everyone under her. so those questions will still be asked, and she ought to get all of the facts out. stuart: representative steve, again, i apologize for the ambush but you know what we're like. >> happy to be a part of whatever you want to talk about. but obviously today we're trying to get a really important reconciliation passed in the house to gut obamacare and defund planned parenthood and get that on the president's desk. stuart: yes, you will get that vote, and it will go to the president's desk and that's what i think you guys want. steve, thank you very much for being with us. >> always great to be with you, stuart,. stuart: another fact revealed during the benghazi hearing. over 600 requests for on additional security by ambassador stevens and state department staff, which went ignored. former i cia operations manager claire lopez is with us. ma'am, you were cia manager i believe. was that in the reagan years or the -- bush 41 years?
11:37 am
was that then? >> well, stuart, thanks for having me. i'm currently a member of the citizens commission on benghazi and also vice president for research and analysis at the center for security policy. and that is where my experience on the middle east comes from. not what i did in my prior professional career. stuart: okay. so what do you make of these -- and i'm told it was 600 requests for additional security prior to the attack. >> i think it's of a pattern with the administration's plans for what they intended to happen in north africa, particularly in libya. and this is something that's a little disappointing indeed in the way representatives gowdy and the committee went at it yesterday. in that they did not focus on that broader question. i think the more important issue for what were they doing there in the first place? and that was implementing, executing a policy of the clinton state department, the obama white house to install the muslim brotherhood in
11:38 am
power in libya and indeed elsewhere in north africa. stuart: hold on a second. hold on a second. claire, hold on a second. >> in the war -- stuart: i hope you can hear me. you've got to hold on a second. >> had to make everything more declined. stuart: you've got to elizabeth listen. i've got to get. >> that's why -- >> it's a filibuster. >> that he had to pretend that what they had done was okay. and it wasn't. . stuart: okay. look, i've got to back up here. you just implied what sounds to me like a conspiracy. a hidden conspiracy to make sure that the muslim brotherhood won in syria and egypt and this was a program under the clinton state department. is that what you're saying? oh, you know what? i'm sorry, claire. i know that our guest could not hear me. we couldn't have a conversation. that's why we're talking on
11:39 am
each other. >> that or her being the best filibuster i've heard in my life. i would want her on the senate there. stuart: that was quite a conversation as long as it lasted. >> i wish she could have heard your follow-up question because i really wanted to know. stuart: i think i heard her correctly saying that what was always intended was that the muslim brotherhood would take over in libya. ashley: right. stuart: and that was the underneath policy. ashley: it was going on behind the scenes. >> well, remember what preceded the benghazi attack, been elected but effectively installed. there was the protest outside the embassy just before the benghazi. ashley: that's right. >> attack. everyone found that to be a rather odd demonstration. remember our embassy put out a note saying we don't like anybody using religion and offending people. and we weral very surprised how that trajectory was and then the next thing we knew was the benghazi attack, which clearly was a very, very
11:40 am
different situation. stuart: i wish we could get that guest back because that was kite a revelation. we'll try. >> the relationship between the state department should be looked more into. stuart: we've been following the big market story all day, which is those wonderful tech stocks all of them moving straight up. apple is beginning to move up. it's been flat around 110, 112 for a long time. right now it is up $2. 118 on apple as we speak. and look at this. it's called bumble, a popular dating app but only women can reach out and contact a potential date. the ceo of bumble next
