incident. >> and we don't know what people will hear from president obama. he gave us one sound bite from his business trip in malaysia, where he said we're monitoring the situation. we'll see if the president addresses the american people in the face of all of this fear. good to see you both. "varney & company" starts right now. over to you. >> thank you very much. remember that question, when can we go in and wipe these bastards out? you might want to ask that question again because we with a woke up again to another terror outrage. good morning, america. in mali, gunman storm a luxury hotel, 124 hostages including foreign nationals and some were released if they could cite verses from the koran. others have been killed. and nowhere is it immune from islamic terror. and president obama has been
9:01 am
criticized from his response to paris and the refugees. he said we're monitoring the situation. investors from all over the world are pouring money into america, this is the safe haven, the dow up 487 points since paris and it will open up again today after this latest outrage. the money is coming here. and the terror plague rolls on over there. "varney & company" is about to begin. all right, let's bring you up-to-date, exactly where we are now. 124 guests, 13 staff held hostage in the radisson hotel. and they include, turks, indians, french nationals, chinese nationals and it's confirmed, americans are in the hotel, we do not know if they are hostages. malian forces clearing floor by floor and terrorists reportedly are on the 7th floor. one of the escaped hostages said they heard terrorists
9:02 am
speaking in english and southing allah akbar. come on in, christian whiten, the former state department official. if there was any doubt-- there is no doubt this is a global war and terror right at the center globally, right? >> right. and it takes it look very quaint, the administration's bragging about al qaeda and bin laden. it's a larger movement, it's not just isis and the iranian regime and tentacles. >> it's in place all around the world and we see it in france-- in mali, as they've been yelling allah akbar, and there was an attempt to put down partly with weapons from the syrian war. >> it seems like the threat is worldwide. certainly, the anxiety is worldwide and simply, again, it seems to be picking up the pace. paris last friday.
9:03 am
bamico today, and before that, other terrorist incidents tightly compressed in a time frame. and it seems like go en, straighten me out here, it seems like we're working toward some kind of crescendo of terror, are we? >> yeah, i think so, this has been a theory that some of us have warned, you cannot ignore problems that have origin in the middle east. as much as we'd like to turn our back on the region and done with the wars there, the problems have a tendency to spread. not that these are specifically arabs in the middle east doing this. but you have an ideology, again as adverse as hamas, boca haram. animally is next door to algeria, this is the experience france had with ties to islamism and you have france learned the hard way, you have to learn what they're bringing
9:04 am
in. stuart: there was intense pressure on president obama primarily especially in light of this latest incident. he has appeared at a press conference in kuala lumpur, he said we're monitoring the situation. >> the president went on his trip and included the philippines right after france was attacked and become so clear that his policy is failing, it's not just republicans like myself who believe this, you even have senators, dianne feinstein from here in california, democrats who are upset about the president's comments that isis is contained and the strategy is working and i think what you'll see from this administration in the final year for an attempt to move this out of the inbox, to seem to be reacting. we have some presence in mali and questions whether those in the hotel might be part of
9:05 am
detached troops there. but we don't have the will to do much coming from our president. stuart: earlier this morning, jeb bush was on the fox business network and he said we need to declare war on islamic terrorism. roll at that tape. >> that's the problem here, this is a threat to western civilization, islamic terrorism is -- has co-opted a religion and we need to take it out. stuart: christian, what do you think. >> it's a -- what it is is a war on -- back to his brother's administration, a war on terror, why don't we name what it is, it's not taken over religion, it's islamism, unifying mosque and state and
9:06 am
theocrat theocrat theocrat theocrati theocratic tyranny. it's a lack of clarity. >> what you're seeing on the left-hand side of your screen is the latest available video coming to us from bamako, the capitol of mali in west africa. there's a terror outrage in progress in bamako. over a hundred people held in that country. that would be bamako, the radisson blu hotel. we're one week from the paris terror attack from last friday. an update before those attacks. france had 500 people per day, this is before the paris attack. 500 people per day, we are-- were looking to sign up for the french army.
9:07 am
after the attacks, surged to 1,500 per day, there's a rush to sign up and fight terror. liz macdonald is with me, i'm not going to say it's war-like attitude in france, but hardening toward terror liz: the french president is expected to call on president obama to do more in the fight against isis. what's happening right now. french troops have been battling al qaeda in the west african nation, now we see al qaeda still active there. stuart: what we've got is 50 french elite police officers making their way to mali as of now. 50 armed, heavily armed french police officers. >> here is what's key. when raqqa, when the highway that provided supplies to isis was bombed, you saw the paris attacks, you saw the same with london and madrid. that was at the height of the afghan and iraqi war. as the pressure steps up in the middle east to attack isis you may see more of these actions. >> let's bring in tammy bruce for the political angle here, president obama, he's in a
9:08 am
corner here and he's not addressing this directly. he's saying we're monitoring the situation. this man is in a political corner right now. >> yes, and look, unfortunately, right now, the political angle, of course, now is extension, and it's remarkable to have a president who has no comment. in addition to john kerry noted about daesh as he calls it, insulting name for isis, that we're going to neutralize them as quickly and effectively ago we've neutralized al qaeda. the fact is, the group in mali is associated with al qaeda. al qaeda's footprint expanded quietly in the middle east through syria and yemen. the first thing president obama needs to do is to get out of a fantasy world and to face the reality of what we're dealing with here and clearly, he and his secretary of state, apparently are having difficulty doing.
9:09 am
stuart: yesterday, it passed the house of representative r by a wide margin, put a pause, 47 democrats said put a pause on it, restrict the inflow, and the president says he's going to veto that. does he have to rethink that? >> he does. in 2011 he himself put a pause on the iraqi refugee program for six months specifically because of terrorists that had been getting through within that program. chersharyl attkisson is reporti this is an interesting dynamic. his own actions show he's capable of doing this and he should. stuart: how is is this market going to open in light of the latest terror outrage in west africa, look at it, it's going up. the dow jones industrial average set to open 70, 80 points higher. there's another factor involved here, it's not just safe haven investing. mario draghi, the european
9:10 am
central bank, i don't know that he said print more money, but accommodate this with worldwide terrorism. how about the price of oil. a moment ago touched just below $40 a barrel. it's right at $40 a barrel now, we could break below it again today. another important indicator. >> breaking news, u.s. defense official confirming u.s. military personnel are assisting the civilians to secure locations in bamako. stuart: they're assisting liz: there are 25 military personnel there. stuart: this is a special, and gunmen taking over a hotel. fox confirms that americans are in the hotel, we don't know if they're hostages. the latest, more on it next.

>> the syrian refugee situation is closely linked to the worldwide terror war. yesterday in the house of representatives, a bill to hold up, to pause the inflow of syrian refugees into america, that bill passed overwhelmingly. in fact, 47 democrats said yes, put a pause on the inflow of syrian refugees. congressman seth molten joins us now, he's a democrat from massachusetts and served in iraq and he had opened his home to an iraqi refugee. and brought him to america. >> he came to america. stuart: the issue right now is, should we put a pause on the continuing inflow of syrian migrants coming into america? >> no, we should not. the vetting process is strict as any traveler in the united states. works well. 18 to 24 months to come here. the idea is that isis is going to get someone in syria today and send them here tomorrow is completely wrong. even more, secondly, passing
9:15 am
this bill is playing right into isis' hands. you are making it easier for isis to recruit people here at home and that's how they work. it's different than al qaeda. stuart: if we suggest that we don't want syrian refugees coming here at this time, we're encouraging recruitment for isis over there? >> that's right. no, no, not over there. what worried about is an attack here. stuart: and the domestic population, we take the risk on your behalf? >> no, no, we're not taking it on our behalf. we're trying to make america safer. hard for isis to recruit people here. 'cause that's what they did. they didn't refugees in paris for the attack they had people-- >> and a domestic muslim population, some of whom become terrorists, it's happened in america, and happened in europe and people are dying and you want to expand the domestic muslim population and says that that keeps us safer, does it? >> no, you've got to wrong.
9:16 am
because what's happening is they' they're radicalizing the domestic population, you hit it on the head. stuart: and radicalizing them, that's-- >> it's saying that the words on the base of the statue of liberty does not apply to syrians or muslims. exactly what isis wants and needs and the propaganda to-- >> the bill supported by 47 democrats in the house simply to pause not eradicate the inflow of refugees, pause it so they can be properly vetted. >> they're properly vetted. stuart: you're sure of that? >> yes, i am. stuart: wait a second, wait a second. if one of those people comes into america that you want to bring in here and one of them kills an american, will you take responsibility for that? >> what happens-- >> will you? >> what happens if isis use this is bill to radicalize.
9:17 am
stuart: did you answer the question? will you answer the question? >> that's what they're doing. you said they're radicalizing muslims here at home. stuart: will you answer the question? >> that's what they're doing. and your bill is playing in their hands >> will you answer the question. >> you're making it easier for isis to recruit people who are already here. stuart: you won't answer the question, congressman. i'm ask it again. i'll ask it again. we bring in these syrian refugees and one of them, just one of them kills an american, will you take responsibility? >> i take responsibility for my vote and i'm proud of it because i know it's in the national security interest of the united states. stuart: you will take responsibility? >> i have fought these guys overseas, i get-- >> for your service, i want to know if you take responsibility. >> i'm not willing to vote for something that plays into the hands of isis. will you take responsibility ises someone who supports this bill if they use it as a
9:18 am
propaganda tool to recruit muslims at home to attack americans. it's interesting, thises-- >> they will use this for propaganda at any point in any way. >> this is how they're different than al qaeda, this is important for americans to understand. what al qaeda has done, is they have recruited people over in places like saudi arabia and sent them over here, long established. sleeper cells, remember the 9/11 hijackers were here for a long time, right. but isis is different, they're not just training people in syria and sending them overseas, they're recruiting them here at home with the internet and with social media and that is the most important threat that we need to address and that's why the director of the fbi, the director of the fbi is opposed to this bill. stuart: clearly, we have a disagreement. i do not believe that you radicalize people in america if you put a pause on muslim refugees coming here. >> oh, they will use this, they will use every advantage they can and we cannot do that. stuart: is there anything-- if we let them in they'll use it.
9:19 am
>> american values are timeless. we don't have caveats in the americans values not in the 1930's. stuart: and we don't have caveats on american security, sir. we don't have caveats on american security and my wife and children we don't have caveats. >> after four tours in iraq, i understand that. stuart: i understand what's going on. >> i believe in america values-- >> you should take responsibility for what you're saying. >> i also believe in our national security. stuart: so do i. >> and i will not play in the hand of the isis to recruit terrorists at home and abroad. stuart: we appreciate you being here. >> thank you very much. stuart: thank you. coming up, the fight against islamic terror rolls on in france, apparently not here. a surge of army recruits in paris. we're live from there next.

stuart: president obama is in malaysia, he has been asked questions about this attack in bamako and said we are monitoring the situation. my question is is the president in such a difficult political corner that he has to shift its policy and may be agreed to a temporary pause in the influx of syrian refugees? what do you think the president is going to do? >> i don't know. i have a feeling he will double down. he is embarrassed that he -- a week ago he said they were contained. she continues to refuse to call them out as radical islamic terrorists. this is a president who has doubled down more than once, pandering to the far left as well as hillary clinton and andrew cuomo, our governor. it should not be partisan politics. this is about the safety of americans and taking a pause. fbi director stated very clearly

they do not have the ability to properly that and guarantee these refugees will not pose terrorist risk in the united states when the director of the fbi, makes an affirmative statement that it is time to pause and fortunately we had 22% of democrats yesterday in congress agree that safety and security of americans comes before partisan politics but we did have 78% of the democrats' fault in line behind obama, nancy pelosi and hillary clinton and trying to turn this into partisan politics which is not. stuart: congressman chris collins from new york, thank you for joining us. what do you have on the paris raids? >> these are important numbers that tell you the difference whether something is neutralize or contained, french police in the past week have done 793 grades, 182 last night alone. 90 people have been detained, 174 weapons have been seized,
9:50 am
164 people are now under house arrest. this is clearly massive but clearly nothing is under control when you are able to do 793 grades in the general region area of the suburbs. stuart: what stuck out to me is 174 weapons, this is france, this is europe, they don't have weapons in europe. >> we don't have details, they are going to be in one case in belgium they found chemicals for automatic weapons and handguns, looking at combination of explosives and firearms. >> after 9/11 the 9/11 commission said this is about a failure of imagination, we need more imagination and expectation that isis is on the march, senator dianne feinstein said. stuart: on the dow jones industrial average we are up 152 points.
9:51 am
i understand mario draghi in europe suggested accommodate the ongoing war on terror that is happening around world. maybe that means he will print more money. maybe that is helping the market but also america as safe haven, we are up 153 points, as yet another terror outrage around the world. more on the breaking situation in mali, americans and the hotel, they are there, we don't know whether they are hostages, live report from africa in one minute. you both have a

9:55 am
stuart: more on the situation developing in mali. joining us from johannesburg is paul kill lee. ilee. ilee. itlee. lee. iillee. slee. i have seen the mall attack, explosions in nigeria and now i am seeing bamako, a hostage situation, islamic terrorists are in charge. africa is now the new front on no war on global terror? >> you're quite right to suggest that. in the latest global terrorism index which was only published two days ago it was said four of the top ten countries for being the most deadly in terms of terror in the world are africa and nigeria has overtaken isis
9:56 am
in terms of now the most deadly terror group in the world. b this isn't necessarily boca h a har haram, but if it is linked to isis it is even more likely it is linked to al qaeda. let me give you some figures about american citizens as well. we learned the u.s. military has confirmed six americans were among the numbers of people who were released who have been freed from being hostages, state department says other americans may be inside the hotel as hostages and indeed the pentagon has confirmed to as that u.s. special forces are involved in trying to help special forces in trying to resolve the situation. stuart: thank you, i want to add our argument in america this morning is about the influx of syrian refugees coming in to
9:57 am
america. you have figures from germany. how many refugees have entered germany this year? liz: more than 900,000 according to the interior minister. stuart: 900,000 in germany so far this year. liz: that is the news breaking. stuart: we are arguing whether we should hold up in coming syrian refugees coming here. liz: that would not defund refugee intake which it would say pause, common sense. stuart: not saying no you can never come in but hold on a second, wait until we can that you properly. that is the argument of the moment. i wonder where president obama will come down on this one. >> obama's policies have affected the displacement of millions of people. why not bring in 10,000 to show how good you are. this is the problem we have with this administration. stuart: coming up much more on this terrorist outrage in mali. americans are in the hotel that
9:58 am
is under siege and we have congressman peter king, a member of the house tell lay security committee here at 10:45, the second hour of "varney and company" is two minutes away.
9:59 am
10:00 am
stuart: 10:00 eastern time the big story, america wakes up to a deadly terror attack this time at a luxury hotel in mali, west africa, gunmen stormed the radisson. hotel in mali's capital bamako. reports that three people have been killed in that attack. 124 guests, 13 hotel employees still held hostage. we believe on the seventh floor of that hotel. foreign nationals are among the hostages including french, indians and chinese nationalists and fox news confirms there are some americans in that hotel. 80 hostages have been released, some of them were released
10:01 am
because they could recite versus from the koran. 25 members of the american military are in mali and they did help first responders. french special forces are on site at that hotel and that is what you are looking at, the hotel in bamako, a capital of mali, west africa. senior naval analyst of the study of war, you say there is power shift within the jihadi movement. tell me. >> there is a struggle going on between al qaeda and isis for leadership of the global sunni jihadists movement. for good point and al qaeda was dominant in the struggle. only last two years has isis grown up, taken over territory in eastern syria and western iraq and established a caliphate and because they have such over the top radical brand of terrorism be hitting people on tv and conducting spectacular terrorist attacks in france where they are targeting individual journalists with the charlie hebdo attack etc. isis
10:02 am
is taking over from al qaeda for leadership of the global sunni jihadists movement. you can say this attack in mali was an isis inspired or isis directed attack but has all the hallmarks, right now you see a lot of these jihadis and pledged allegiance to archive are shifting their allegiance to isis. is bad news for us in terms of our security situation moving forward. bernard: when it occurs to me the tactic is very similar in nairobi, kenya, a mall was attacked, a small number of gunman firing indiscriminately going for the maximum body count. very similar attack in paris where people were executed in the concert hall, may be the same thing in bamako, there is heavy gunfire heard in the hotel, that is the latest we have from their. the tactic seems to be the same the world over. at small number of heavily armed people, don't care if they live
10:03 am
or die, preferred to die, get the maximum body count, maxxam outrage and an close down a city or institution for a day. very effective tactic. >> absolutely. historical analogy as u.s. navy pilot or retired navy pilot about what happened during the pacific war against japan in world war ii, for the end japan lost the ability to conduct the mechanized warfare they unleash their kamikaze attacks, very small cadre of highly trained dedicated personnel who were willing to kill themselves to inflict damage on the enemy. we see a similar tactic now from these radical sunni jihadists. a small group of highly trained men that are willing to die can inflicted tremendous amount of damage and we are not talking about people who are killed and wounded and that is the primary subject but the terror spread through the rest of society. stuart: you are a military guy, use of the war and military tactics. i am told that if we, america, wanted to get rid of isis,
10:04 am
eradicated completely on its home turf in that caliphate, if we wanted to do it we could do it. is that true? >> absolutely. we have done it before. al qaeda and iraq 2006-2008 we defeated and, general david petraeus put forth a plan known as the surge, intelligence sells, technical intelligence, significant number of aircraft to strike what we call time sensitive targets, just look at the flow rate as a financial guy is an analytical, you can appreciate this, we are only flying ten sorties the day against the islamic state. the totality of the time we are finally ten sorties that day, actually put forward targets, that is just a miniscule amount as compared to the targets that exist, we recently, america hit over the last 96 hours, over 100 oil tanker trucks from isis. my question is why did it take us this long to do this. that is how isis finance
10:05 am
themselves, let it these guys. stuart: a valid question and we appreciate it. liz macdonald with me, you have got numbers on russia's attacks today. how big? liz: the team cruise missiles off of russian navy hits 6 hitting 7 targets in -- one of the targets, 600 rebels killed according to russian top officials. russia has killed 1300 terrorists and al qaeda since september 30th, two thirds of those are considered terrorist combatants. number of civilians have been killed as well, nearly 500 civilians including women and children. stuart: all right, you have one more number and i want to hear it again. germany has admitted how many refugees from north africa this year? liz: more than 900,000. is nearing the 1 million mark by the end of the year according to estimates. stuart: that is the argument.
10:06 am
do we less in the north african migrants? do we met syrian refugees in right now? do we do that? the president says yes. many in congress, a majority in congress said no we don't. here we have germany admitting 900,000. that is a political risk for angela merkel. liz: both sides of the political aisle want to accept immigrants, they have an open stance, republicans and democrats. what is being asked here is common sense and vetting whoever is coming in to this country. stuart: as all of this is going on in europe, the middle east, and in africa, look at the dow jones industrial average. this is called safe-haven investing, there's a lot more than just that. bottom here, you have safe-haven investing. bring your money here, it is safe, the dow it jones, 144
10:07 am
points. and it is down 5, almost 600 points up since paris last week. stocks up, oil down, $40.24 per barrel, often in the recent past we have seen stocks go down when oil is down, not today. safe haven investing seems to cancel at out. oil at 40. market watcher is with me now, what do you say? am i out on a limb with the safe haven investing? do i have a point? tell me. >> i think you have a really good point and even a bigger umbrella over why the safe-haven investing is working and that is the resilience of the cumin spirit and resilience of a free world and the resilience of capitalism. since 1992 we have had 19 different terrorist attacks, now 20 county what is going on in mali, that is new since i did my
10:08 am
research and 14 of those 19 occasions within two days the markets around the world were back higher than they were before the attack. terrorists are trying to attack global economy and it is not working. stuart: if you are a foreigner and -- i used to be a foreigner and you are looking at the united states and think that is a safe-haven, i will put my money there, where do i put my money? seems to me it has been flowing into the amazon, microsoft, apples of the world, defense stocks, even gunstocks. if that is where the money is flowing? >> it is. first of all congratulations again on being a fellow american. i think defense stocks are great place right now, you mentioned those so-called -- facebook,
10:09 am
amazon, netflix, google that are doing well, continue to make new highs, money flowing where it is treated well or making new highs those defense starts are interesting place to be if you have new money to put to work because if the market has a hiccup down the road defense stocks traditionally don't fall as far as the broader market and where we have a heck up and i like lockheed martin in that space because you are doing a lot more than the fed. you are one of the top cybercrime-fighter's out there and there ago to co. when big corporations need to do that kind of bring in specialist consultants. it is a good place to be. stuart: we thank you for being with us, thanks very much. look at those defense stocks. all of them are up again today. they had some very solid gains all week. yesterday house lawmakers voted to slow the stream of syrian refugees entering america. all of this, the president up
10:10 am
until now i believe is saying i will veto that. we are not going to pause the influx of syrians coming here, we are opening -- liz: senator harry reid's office saying we will muster the 46 democrat votes to basically block the house bill. whether it gets to the president's desk remains to be seen. paul ryan is saying he doesn't understand the administration's stands, the fbi and law enforcement says we need to that the syrian refugees. stuart: more numbers to our viewers, we had these earlier today, the rage that have taken place in france. there are now 793 raids have taken place in france, 793 raids, 90 people have been detained, 164 people are under house arrest. this is most important, police have seized 174 weapons. this is europe. they don't have weapons in europe but apparently some do
10:11 am
and they seized them. remarkable story. later this hour congressman peter king, republican from new york is a member of the house homeland security committee, he is on this program at 10:45, good man to have at this time and donald trump is taking heat for comments about fighting terror. he says we need a database to track muslims in the u.s.. we will deal with that after the break.

10:13 am
10:14 am
stuart: look at it now. dow jones industrial average is up 170 points, they want safety, you want safety for your money america seems to provide it. the price of oil touched a low below $40 a barrel earlier this week, right now holding at $40 a barrel. then we have hillary clinton laying out her plans to take out islamic terror. liz, you have been looking through this carefully. did she say yesterday she shifted a little more?
10:15 am
liz: i read the speech, it is a sweeping hawkish foreign policy speech, here is the quote, the u.s. is conducting this fight for more than a year, time to begin a new phase and intensify and broaden our efforts, for u.s. soldiers to be embedded with troops on the ground, call for more strikes and also calling out turkey and gulf states to do more to defeat isis. stuart: you are looking at scenes from outside the hotel in bamako, mali where islamic gunman have seized what we believe to be 124 hostages, 13 hotels staff members. those hostages come from a variety of nations, france, india, china, the state department says or is trying to confirm that americans are in the hotel, whether they are hostages or not is another story entirely. some hostages were released if they could recite versus from the koran. we understand three have been
10:16 am
killed. in what circumstances we do not know but there are three dead in this hostage situation as we speak. now this, donald trump says as president, he would increase surveillance of muslims in this country suggesting they be registered in the database. "national review" editor richard lowry joins me now. rich, that is probably not going to happen but it is a muscular response and that is what people want to hear. >> trump has been a nationalist and hard-liner and immigration but we can agree databases on u.s. citizens for no reason other than their religion. that is unconstitutional, counterproductive and it is never going to happen. stuart: how about the argument we are in now about the influx of syrian refugees? the house of representatives by
10:17 am
an overwhelming margins as hold on, pause, wait until we can that some properly, the president says he will veto that. he wants those scenery and refugees to come in as schedule. do you think the president in light of what is happening today might have to back off that a little? >> he has really dug in. i think it is a shame. if he were to come out five minutes from now and say i hear about these concerns about syrian refugees, understand them, here is my $2 billion plan to actually help many more syrian refugees in the front-line states like jordan and lebanon and turkey are not taking 10,000 syrian refugees, taking millions of syrian refugees to held long the ground, that would pass immediately and instead we have is poisonous and mostly symbolic argument over these refugees. stuart: and yet the argument is bigger than that.
10:18 am
it is about do we wish to expand the domestic muslim populations of europe and america? putting it in rather crude terms we have numbers this morning from germany, they have admitted 900,000 north african refugees in this calendar year. the real question is does europe wish to expand its domestic muslim population and does america, maybe i am treading on the third rail of ethics but it is a question that has to be asked. >> germany's policy is ridiculous and angela merkel's -- bears some responsibility for what is happening because when you say we're going to take anyone who comes, everyone on the offense considering whether to come or not is going to come and these people are not going directly from aleppo to munich. that is not possible. they're going to other places that are much safer, turkey for instant and then deciding to go on to europe.
10:19 am
the obvious solution, help those front line states developed a places for these people to stay safely, then settled less syrian conflict and have them go back to syria. stuart: jeb bush on the fox business network with maria bartiroma said we need. on the ground in the middle east and we need now. that was a very strong response to what is going on in bamako this morning. what do you say? >> anyone had said that two years ago they would be laughed out of the room and it would be an absolute political killer. that is not true anymore. public sentiment has shifted on this issue especially in the republican party and if we're going to take isis on it will require more u.s. troops. that is the fact. we can do more from the air but the problem cannot be solved from the air. stuart: thank you for joining us. if you didn't watch "varney and company" at the top of the hour
10:20 am
you missed a heated discussion between myself and a democrat congressman. we bring you the highlights in a moment. i know how it is. you're all set to book a flight using your airline credit card miles. and surprise! those seats sometimes cost a ridiculous number of miles, making it really hard to book the flight you want. luckily, there's a better way... with the capital one venture card. with venture, you'll earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, every day. and when you're ready to travel, just book the flight you want, on any airline, then use your miles to cover the cost. now you're getting somewhere. what's in your wallet?
10:21 am
10:22 am
10:23 am
stuart: i hesitate to call this the terror rally. we better call it a safe haven investing in america rally because we are up 170 points, not far away from 18,000. a quick look at united health may need does obamacare exchanges according to ceo, they're losing money, can't do that, signing up, bouncing back today, back up 3%. and now this. if you miss the 9:00 a.m. hour of "varney and company," you miss this interview, he wants to let syrian refugees get in.
10:24 am
>> the bill supported by 47 democrats in the house, to pause, not eradicate the refugees but to pause it and that them properly. >> they already are properly vented. stuart: you sure of that? >> yes i am. stuart: if one of those people comes into america's that you want to bring in and one of them killed an american will you take responsibility for that? >> what happens if isis uses this bill to radicalize -- radicalize people at home. because that is what they were doing. there radicalizing muslims here at home. that is what they are doing. your bill is playing into their hands. stuart: answer the question. >> easier for isis to recruit people who are already here. stuart: answer the question and i will ask it again. i will ask it again.
10:25 am
we bring in these syrian refugees and one of them, just one of them killed an american, will you take responsibility? >> i take responsibility for my vote and i am proud of it because i know it is a national security interests of the united states. stuart: i thought we would run a little bit more of that. you were sitting there as i interviewed the congressman, i know you wanted to jump in, your point of view? liz: demonstrably wrong when he was saying the bill has no religious test, it doesn't defund the refugee program. it says pause it, take time to that them. the fbi director basically -- not say whether he supports or is against the bill. he is saying in law enforcement, there are gaps in the refugee program, finding out who these people are. that is a serious issue. the fbi repeatedly said sleeper's cells are not triggered by legislation. they sit and are activated by
10:26 am
the warlords overseas, they are dormant for years. we have 70 charge in the united states, immigrants have been charged with terrorist activities. stuart: have been charged. >> 40 been intensely monitored by the fbi. whether they are home grown or radicalized or came in from overseas that is what is going on, those of the fact. stuart: i was looking for a statement of responsibility, you let them in, they killed one american, the you take responsibility, that is my question and i did not get an answer. up next, more on the mali situation, terrorists holding a one hundred people hostage in a hotel in bamako, the capital of mali. a big blow to obamacare, the nation's largest insurer offering plans through those exchanges, we are dealing with that with an expert after diss.
10:27 am
10:28 am
10:29 am
10:30 am
i've said it before safe haven investing in merck. 179 for the dow up 161 with terror going on around the world. proos of oil an important indicator until today often when oil goes down, stocks go down. not today. ole down at 40 dollars barrel but stocks going straight . i want to get bock to that being story capitol in mali stormed that radisson hotel earlier today they took 170 hostages total that included many foreign nationals. some have been wees leased if they could recite from the qur'an. reports that three other three to be precise have been killed from the heritage foundation dakota wood is with me right now. it o considers to me there are many, many soft targets that's exactly where these jihadis go.
10:31 am
>> absolutely why would you want to go into the teept of an armed guard or marl compound if you can hit a kids' football game. shopping mall, restaurant. a point of an open society ands that's what they're targeting. >> that makes us all vulnerable every country, city has many, many soft targets. >> absolutely, and yeah, this is the fear of in response to that of opposing a marlized surveillance state which is a path we absolutely do not want to go down, and yet maintaining these civil liberties that we all really cherish so how do we strike that balance between bias towards civil will be thes yet enabling our law enforcement and intelligence communities to provide protections against these attackers that's the nature of the debate today. >> it is on a program earlier morning i had a democrat congressman who said that if we pause on the influx of sure i
10:32 am
can refugees coming from america if we have a pause on it, then we radicalize more muslims already living here. that was his lodge egg for allowing more in. what do you make of that? >> well i think it's completely redc louse. these folks are animated noser for or their hatred against the u.s. and what it represents. not that you need to give them cause in terms of foreign fighters or sympathize rs but they're attacking anyway. so i think we have no only gags to inflict upon ourself it is cultural suicide, by opening up our arms to anybody who wants to come here. we need an aggressive filtering process and if folks living in the united states are good americans, they're going to support that approach, i believe. >> at this point could i say that this waver of terror has been success in the sense that the body count is huge. there's throughout the world and anxiety throughout the world and
10:33 am
that is the intention of the terrorists at this point. would i be going too far out of lean to say they're anding? >> yeah, i think so. l i think that this is a man pes taigs of a violent strain of evil. people are necessarily worried about it. in appears you've seen a solidarity that has come together to not let these jihadis deter us from conducting our leaves so rational actors among the people in particular. i think it is rational to be concerned and one to be more protect of. but i don't see us going overboard in that. i don't to accord, you know, these terror element its that ty are vaccine tore use in a larger sense. it will tack time and figure out best methods to do that. >> to heritage thank you for oning us we appreciate that. here's an interesting development. lee carter is we many she's with
10:34 am
with partners, and she has a clip, of president obama after the paris attacks where you put them to a focus group. >> yeah. >> you ran cleps of what president obama was saying. >> a focus group was watching, and they can respond with those dials so when they approve line goes up and disapprove goes down. a clip where president obama was saying this was a setback to tack in appears was a setback. roll that tip and let's hear how they responded. >> l this would be a long-term campaign. there will be setbacks and there will be successes. the terrible events in paris were, obviously, a terrible and seckening setback. even as we grieve with our french friends, however, we can't lose sight that there has been progress -- >> i saw a dip at the end what he was referring to our frerchg friends and a blip up when he
10:35 am
was referring to a setback. how -- what is your interpretation of this? >> when we were talking about how they were reacting they told us they're waiting for him to say something strong. something being, this is a big time. people are afraid they want leadership. they want us to acknowledge it. so when they're watching setbacks they go okay. about to say something, and then he department. he said nothing and they dip down. people want leadership. people are afraid. people are terrified people are angry, all sorts of things if you about this a leader should behave saying we're going to be okay. do everything to stand by these people. you don't have to choir. that's not what they heard. >> the audience that was controlling the diet giving their response, a cross section of people. republican, independents and democrats you didn't self-select an audience which you knew which the result was going to be.
10:36 am
>> republican and in democrats o interesting this doesn't happen or very often is they reacted it in a different way. republican more negative but thought independent would act the way republicans. but the support for obama and democratic loam right now is softening. >> next up, here is a radio clip, a recent radio ad twal that is from donald trump. you put the tile on people again. roll that tape please. >> no strategy to defeat isis and now preparing to let hundreds of thousands of refugees from syria into the united states. i will stop illegal immigration. build a wall on southern border a and yes also we cannily and decisively bomb the hell out of isis. >> now what's your interpretation of the response. i don't know how to read lines, what was the response so i'm gong to bomb the hell out of i.c.e. seis? >> some are look let's do that. people are not may behaving rationally.
10:37 am
but people said he's strong. he's had threetion a plan. whether or not you agree with a plan people were on it. but thing i found really, really interesting is in the gng he blames obama. doesn't have a plan. people are saying enough, this is not tomb for us to be going after each other want to hear what are you going to do to make it better. >> that's the focus group you ran? >> yeah. >> thank youen deed. fascinating. >> i love to have some doils on people reacting to this program. [laughter] >> any time. >> unfortunately. >> i think maybe we have a bombshell for obama carr that is united health maid leave the obamacare exchanges. that's according to their ceo, he had a statement he said look we're losing money on this obamacare accident chanks not enough healthy, young people are incooing up.
