anybody is saying at any point in time. >> anthony: it's probably going to go to an outsider. marco rubio or is it a bush and it looks like dr. carson is fading so it's going to be one of those guys possibly against donald trump. >> kevin: there's impressive candidates in top five, but when we were in top 30. come on, gets these guys off the stage. >> dagen: this is where some of the worry comes in from people who work within the party and other elected officials is that you have a woman running on the republican side, you have people of latin backgrounds, very diverse people, african american famous surgeon with no political experience and you have donald trump who is taking shots at all those groups of people.

running for republican nomination. woman, diverse backgrounds of these individuals but with trump and some of the things that he says, this is orgt to november abc poll, trump is viewed unfavorably of women and 74% of nonwhite voters. that's not the direction the republican needs to go in. he says what he wants to say and he spent an awful lot of time trying to justify the comments of thousands of thousands people celebrating. >> maria: he's still talking about it. >> dagen: he got in a twitter war. god bless the man, he's got energy. kevin cech probably closer 90% of people that don't like trump. this is people with money. they're not really his friends, maria, we all know that. i think that this is start to go

>> maria: yeah, that's true, dagen. yesterday there was news that the libya component is getting very much worse. >> dagen: nina, is there any reason to think that you have additional troops that have been announced, that the obama administration will ramp up the fight in a way that will try to contain isis within the next year before the next presidential election? >> well, i think what we've seen -- we have seen the house be reactive. this is white house leading from behind. they are feeling compelled to tip-toe essentially into the battle. if things get worse, we will see more. there's wiggle room by the white house, our arab allies, saudi arabia and jordan, which were in the isis fight have turned their attention to yemen and other places. you have to get them in the fight and on the ground out
there. >> anthony: do you think is what the pentagon would recommend to the president or the white house cut back the special force recommendation in the pentagon? >> i don't -- we obviously don't know that right now. we will see what comes of news reports come out of that. it's clear that as i said, the president's to be general, head of the joint chief of staff went farther than the white house is willing to say about our ability to contain in the past at least our ability to contain isis. the military guys are willing to go farther in saying that this is a problem that we haven't been able to stop. >> anthony: you're being very diplomatic, nina.

rhetoric is alienating everyone. he is speaking the truth, standing up for american citizens and legal residents in this country so the people that are, quote, being offended are not going to be nattering in the election. we have to put americans first, have to put security first, he is leading in jobs, economy and terrorism, all three will be huge factors in the election in november. maria: will he be able to be hillary clinton when it comes to the general election? >> i think so. everywhere we go so many people have come to donald trump supporting donald trump because he has policies. his name alone says prosperity. if donald trump put his name on something he will bring the best and brightest to make it happen. everyone knows this. as far as hillary clinton goes talk about her record. we haven't even started on her

winning but when it comes down to it we see they are not going to support their nominee. dagen: with donald trump in the lead and holding the lead in such an easy fashion, getting to these petty verbal jousting matches or even on twitter whether it is one of the other candidates, chris christie, washington post writer being called a dummy, that was one of his recent tweets, at which point is it just beneath him? he is ruling the roost, just ignore it? >> he probably should ignore it but donald trump is donald trump. he made a promise to the voters to say i will be who i am and that is what he does. if you go after him he goes after you, no secret. that is donald trump being donald trump. >> at some point the american presidency as an gravitons and a president tweeting people as president calling people

away from finding the raw product. it was a partial mistake on u.s. strategy. >> if you send a message to the establishment, what would it be? >> it is time for the establishment to embrace it base of voters and embrace donald trump. these are voters that a going to need to win in the general. maria: we will see you soon. shares of yahoo! surging following reports of major changes on the horizon, nicole petallides on that story this morning. nicole: good morning. according to the wall street journal yahoo!'s board is finding a series of meetings this week to discuss selling off its core internet business. also on the agenda how to make the most of ali baba which is currently worth more than $30 billion. directors will discuss whether to proceed with a plan to spin off its investment in the chinese ecommerce giant.

of republican primary voters, if you have 25% of them, 4% of america, it doesn't have as much significance as you might think in the quinnipiac people in a head to 5 matchup, clinton 47, donald trump 41. and marco rubio, the fox news channel poll, most of the leading contenders, all of them beach hillary clinton but marco rubio beat her by the biggest margin. >> in erica eventually the 3 change. of you haven't read the demographic history every 25 or 30 years people go for younger president, they did this with jfk, try with obama but it was a mistake there. people do get tired of the establishment, both parties look
like a broken branches of marco rubio if he can retain the brand of the republican party might be a big asset people looking forward to. >> quinnipiac poll shows hillary, the gatt has lessened or hillary is beating donald trump. dagen: hilary duff 5 to head matchup is 47% to 41%. >> marco rubio 50-42. marco rubio is the one they are afraid of. >> that is interesting. >> what worries me is this is a high school popularity contests, a hiring process, let's look at what jobs entail and requisite resumes and has the best experience, would lead to growth, security, and prosperity for future generations of america. if you look at everybody on the field, a hiring someone for that job you would be the one i would
hire given -- there should be 50,000 applicants, the magnitude of that job. >> what is the difference between marco rubio and bush? -- >> very talented guy. this is that freedom -- the 3d chess game that he is not ready for. i like him, nice person, jeb bush has the experience. >> would you say you and iron competent? >> i would not -- dagen: wouldn't vote for you -- dagen: that is the issue. i could run a business but i am not going to be -- maria: jeb bush has the experience running florida and the good job, created jobs, created economic growth or lending economic growth, that is where experience comes in. >> the bushes were present for
12 of the last 30 years, use the brand, you have -- some of the made mistakes, your dad or your brother make mistakes, you have presidential experience and we need experience. >> the against big turning points whether it is teddy roosevelt, jfk, obama, people vote for use and change and that is something to watch out for is what i am saying. maria: on to this top story, additional special operation forces being sent to battle isis in iraq. fox news setting a u.s. official who says approximately 200 new troops would be sent to the region in the next few weeks, and this is part of the, quote, specialized targeting force announced by defense secretary ash carter in testimony yesterday, for the house armed services committee. want to bring in senior correspondent geraldo rivera who is still in paris, france. i saw you yesterday in the
audience when president obama was speaking from paris. what is your take? are we getting close it to a real strategy to defeat isis in your opinion? >> whether the president of the united states likes it or not the united states is being dragged kicking and screaming into war. we are at war with isis. that is clear. i want to quickly reference your previous conversation about donald trump. it may just be a coincidence but at the same time donald trump was demanding we bomb isis, that is what he would do if president, that is when president obama gave the green light to finally bomb oil trucks and oil facilities in northwest ceo or rather northern syria and northwest iraq. i believe paris has changed everything. you were here. the savage attacks the gills so many, winded so many others, disrupted so many lives in >> reporter: europe, france is now at war with isis, germany
which has had a very pacifist country since world war ii for 70 years, they are sending over a thousand troops, sending a frigate to protect the french aircraft carrier. even as we speak the british parliament is voting to support a motion by david cameron allowing the british fighter-bombers to attack in syria. i think there is war against isis, civilization recognizes they are an existential threat and the united states and special forces unit you describe is now going to escalate, the president of the united states wants to to or not. maria: the reason obama is doing this is because donald trump brought it up first? >> i only point out the timing. i don't know what is motivating the president. i hope and expect coming here to paris and recognizing how the city suffered the worst violence since world war ii moved in to
understand that isis cannot be ignored. i think it is clear that his policy has been to on noaa rather than to destroy isis, that is changing before our eyes. >> what about the president's relationship with other allies we have in terms of his decision making in the current fight? >> president holland, let me start with the french president, has escalated the language to match but reality. president francois hollande being bloodied by this awful attack that attacked so many lives brought the spotlight to the weaknesses in europe where you can travel from one country to the other without a visa where many of these averages that killed these innocent civilians travel freely from syria through turkey, what an
ally turkey has been for isis records to go back and forth and allow oil to be sold in turkey. he has, president francois hollande has said listen, this is a fight, it is them or us, this is not something that can be treated, global warming is an issue that is for the generations. i don't in any way be little the conference that happened here, the largest gathering of world leaders in the history of the planet in the words of president obama. i don't be little that at all but it is clear europe and the united states are now recognizing that isis is a bleeding wound. it is even them or us. lynne attacks with machine guns. maria: is it enough? that is the debate. people are wondering, not having out and out new brown troops to back up what we have already in place is going to be enough?
>> we need a sunni army. john bolton is right, we need to create a country where sunnis can be safe, work and live and prosper and take care of their children and educate their children, there needs to the reconfiguration of the middle east, sunni armies for sure in this fight. i don't know which one will step up to the plate. i hear the king of jordan saying come on, britain, get in here. i don't see the jordanian legionnaires finding yet in syria or iraq. we need some sunni forces on the ground. what happens if they take ramadi? said baghdad iraqi government takes ramadi, a sudanese city, the sunnis are not going to appreciate the iraqi shiites who have been robbing them and discriminating against them ever since the united states pull out of iraq. you need some international monitor. don't for a second suggest this is going to be easy but there is no doubt that the united states
is now at war with isis. you hear about special forces group today and another unit next week and another in the month to come but the very territorial integrity of the islamic state i think is very fragile that they will fall. maria: be saved in paris. geraldo rivera still in paris. at yahoo! the company could be shaking up the core business. keep it here, back in a moment. can a business have a mind?
decades we have had this kind of agreement, this would renew the export import bank through september of 2019, separate the budget for amtrak's northeast corridor, and safety priorities, checking salad recall stemming from the e coli outbreak, cost cutting other major grocery, and this is happening in more than a dozen states. contaminated salary from california was found to be the source last week and the fda saying of the recall includes 150,000 products, and vegetable trays. >> these are major names. and finally, facebook's ceo, they will give away nearly all
of their wealth in today's dollars, $45 billion to help solve the world's problems. and we have pictures, they became parents, she was born last week, they posted the news on facebook, shock to anybody here, is going to do this eventually. he may not start selling stocks right now, but that is the eventual plan and he had lessons learned with regards to charitable giving. maria: in-line with bill gates, you have to believe this makes a big difference. >> he was up at columbia and said something i will never forget that rich people are either revered or reviled the. if you want to be reviewed you have to give your money away and bill gates was going through the joe klein antitrust stuff at the time, you got to start giving money away, it will change your
whole persona. >> when the warren buffett decide to give his money away? when he was 80? >> not when he was 30. >> his entire career -- >> he said he wouldn't give the money away, it was compound and at a rate faster, helping society with this largess. >> the point is that there is a generational difference between rich guys saying i got to give up whereas this millennial generation fundamentally believes in sharing. he represents that sharing and this is a big deal for 31-year-old, warren buffett didn't give it away. dagen: within the last ten years. dagen: the tv commentator i heard earlier not on the fox network saying this is so great to see because not enough wealthy people give money away to charity and i went shut up! shot up! >> america is the most
philanthropic country on the planet. little list of givers. it is long. dagen: the amount they give away as astonishing. >> in the earlier hour is coming from people to people, as opposed through the government. dagen: government or individual, private citizen. maria: coming up next, kobe bryant receiving a warm welcome from philadelphia. the winless 76 is not showing that brotherly love. that and sports headlines back in a minute.
maria: big night in sports has one in b 18 and one golf great had troubling news. jerrod max with all the details. >> good morning, and the philadelphia 76 is need a victory to avoid being the first team to start the team and kobe bryant was in town, final game against 76 years and the pregame introductions he received. >> five time nba champion, where he won that title in 1996. kobe bryant! >> but that was the longest
introduction out of philadelphia sports arena since apollo creed fox rocky balboa. he came out flying, in the first 90 seconds kobe bryant nailed not one, not two but a trio of three point shot. the night could not have begun in more magical fashion for the philadelphia native. he scored and dished out assists. what a start but then reality. this is why kobe is going to be retiring. kept trying to capture the magic but a few rabbits jumped out of his hat after the only going to, missed 13 of 14 shots from long range, kobe finished the game with 20 points, 26 shots and the philadelphia 76 is won again 103-91 says knapsack 28 game losing streak. dagen: worst in nba history.
>> worst in the history of the united states professional sports, 28 interrupts but no longer so, they finally get -- >> university football team. and five days in the last 19, i thought that was bad but they were 0-18. >> bolden state warriors get 20-0. >> somehow rate cut bill help. dagen: kobe is hung up on his legacy. he is down. and he is fixated on it. >> the other night when lakers fans showed up everybody received a black envelope with heroes and villains and this is kobe's brand to the end of his season.

moving through the house, now i chair a counterterrorism homeland security task force we put all the chairman from appropriate committees in we are looking at the visa waiver program you are never -- remember 38 countries, a lot of them european, and if there are in those countries they can come to america with no personal interview, and just stay here 90 days, you have more than 5,000 western pass sorts passport show willed toasters iraq and sire fought we have not been tracing them a lot of gaps in vulnerability we want to look at passports make sure everybody has biometrics make sure somebody traveled to iraq sir five years not coming through without a personal interview in the process make sure we takeaw takeaw takeaway you are vulnerabilitys. >> everybody weighing in heads of his foreign affairs armed servicess appropriations
judiciary homeland security intelligent committees but this seems obvious; right? how do you do it how do you track them, most effectively? is this a biotech biometric rather technology, within the pass portraits or how specific. >> there is certain things that you can do first of course you want every country if they have privilege to be in this program biometric, in passports we have chips in ours today, secondly, you want to make sure, everybody is interlinking especially in europe with interpol people go on line to be able to come through if that is not reported people don't know, then the most important thing, you've got to track the moment of of where people are going, when you look at it happen mastermind in paris, the thing that he bragged about ability to move freely throughout europe. they have the ability with waiver program to come to america, so we've got look at most of the time if going to
iraq or syria or being trained western passport holders. >> this visa waiver program was enacted in 186 brings almost 20 million people, to the united states, every year. we needed another terrorist attack to get you know, to scrutinize this program even closely? >> you know what? we had already been working on thes, candice miller passed a bill out of committee on this, we are looking at especially what happened with paris, are there addition we need to make we had a meeting yesterday with task force i think you will see tomorrow in avail of a bill just as our refugee bill, even went to the floor with the president didn't approve it, it had more than two-thirds support very bipartisan american people want protection of homeland you will see this bill move through a very strong bipartisan vote next week. >> a minute ago you said enabled folks to move throughout europe we now expect that mastermind behind paris attacks is back in syria
meaning he was in paris was able to just move throughout, and leave get back to brussels apparently, back to syria. >> exactly, and france is part of this bram belgium a part of this imagine we have got to make sure there are a lot of galdz and vulnerabilities we protect about if president disagrees i think you will still see this on his desk. >> what is answer to defeating isis congressman is congress getting more aggressive when it comes to fighting isis will we see any declaration of war each talking about we are at war with isis and yet are we stepping it up enough? >> well i know what? in congress we have passed many times, sent to president we don't want to contain isis we want to destroy isis, you look at chairman of joint chiefs, just yesterday, in a hearing, said we have not contained them, we with the president inside our defense bill we want a strategy, for defeating them president has authority to fight them when brought back to us, the
authorization it would actually tie our hands greater, to fight them that is not where this congress wants to go we want to make sure, that we protect america but also defeat isis. maria: i mean. >> i think we need clear strategy. >> is it a fair statement at this point congressman that isis has infiltrated syrian are refugee program. >> i think for sure, and one thing that you found when we did our refugee bill, remember, we looked we are the largest humanitarian country in the world, we want to continue to be that. but when you look at what is going on in iraq, syria, all we did is add the fbi to the verification before somebody comes an important element, why? because you know fbi director is not appointed politically he is 10-year term the intelligence that they are able to get inside fbi but also someone coming from syria, you can't get the data on intelligence from them why bring them in? then you can go to the wholly argument is that really best
thing to do with refugees, why wouldn't you create a safe zone, so they can stay with their family stay within region when that country comes back together, they can be there that is a better use of money. maria: the end of the day you need president obama's buy-in, right when you say use of money let's talk about allocatinging capital this is going to be a big fight, what will this mean in terms of practical spending for example the defense budget 600 billion dollars, how that is money going to spend going to be allocated are you expecting going to be cut? >> no, if you watch we just did at a budget agreement, now we're coming to next week, we will have our boum bill omni we increased defense spending because it is gone on a cut we now have the smallest navy smallest air force going back to world war ii or worl war inumbers in size of navy and army not protected us around the world we want to make
smart investments we have to reform the process i think the chairman of armed search and seizure is has done a tremendous job when he actually was forward looking how to deal with this we need a xhar commander in chief believes he has to create a strategy to defeat them if you look at acts calling them jv saying yemen is capital those are false failed prospects we need to change that direction. maria: do you agree with the president's plan now ash carter yesterday announcing that we're going to have more special operations teams in iraq? >> i think that is a start, but the first thing i would say, what is the clear strategy overall to twedefeat them you need ground to be able to target pinpoint we need a coalition but we need a strategy, that we win they lose, and no other option. >> quick, congressman what do you think about new quinnipiac pol donald trump still on top establishment continues to get crushed?
>> well the one thing you want to look at looking for somebody entrepreneur strong will changing washington you may -- trump has been in lead a while what i need is moment of of marco rubio big movement up i think you are going to see rubio cruz moving up stronger come january talking about different leaders inside the republican party going for president. >> always a pleasure to talk with you thanks so much. >> thanks for having me. >> see you soon congressman mccarthy. we'll be right back

blake burman in washington with details good morning. >> that is right good morning to you as well, no stopping donald trump, for the moment, according to the latest national quinnipiac university poll out this morning, trump he e-mails atop the rest of the republican field the support from 27%, of republican primarily voters as that as you can see 10 clear of the next group, marco rubio 17, dr. ben carson and ted cruz 16, now trump and carson battled for the top spot in the polls in october, trump topped every national poll in november, as we break occupant into the december now just 61 days to iowa, the "new york times" is reporting this morning that many leading republican officials strategies donors fear a trump nomination would lead to terminal electoralwipeout down ballot, refereed to take on businessman part of fear breaks through in quinnipiac poll shows if trump you were to take on hillary clinton in hypothetical general election
matchup he would lose by 6 points, if it were a clinton rubio matchup that gap closes to basically a tossup 1 point difference, the poll though also has clinton topping carson and cruz so good numbers for her there. the poll concludes with this i will quote he says, secretary clinton and bernie sanders have to be hoping trump is gop's guy bit of good and mixed there for trump. maria: that is a good point, and you know blake, it is not just beating trump robert is a clinton spore i retweed it your that i can new quinnipiac poll shows hillary clinton beats everybody in the gop field. >> have that is -- >> well, and i -- to blake's point there have been other polls have shown hillary clinton losses to -- last week, yeah so this is very fluid i wouldn't put money on any candidate anybody who tells me they know who
republican nominee is going to be is lying nobody knows we've not seen a dynamic like this before, ever, in fact trump still so dominate when he can literally a say anything, and getaway with it because his supporters are so tired of three things, weak politicians, political correctness that has been destructive, and a cup media trump hits all things with full passion, they are willing to basically forgive anything he says. >> what would richard nixon say? >> i think richard nixon obviously not here to comment-on this i think would be fascinated by don dew's candidacy never establishment politician richard nixon came from california republican establishment hated nixon sort of a trumpesque figure within republican party i think would be as if inmatesed. >> a discontentchy guy cheater a lot of there is a lot of things i can go off on back to point on placing your money, if somebody gave people a
market to bet against the spread of trump to the field here if you gave me that today i would take it all day long, a short seller of trump, the lead versus the field, to me the field is narrowing, anthony has different views on bush, i have some that are developing on rubio, but one of the comments made earlier is that rubio is quite surprising -- >> life support -- >> i am work that right is now. >> what do you think about rubio on spread trade if frul. >> rubio incredibly talented latino so much going for him, i think he has competition, i do think the final four if we can use that language, final four are going to be donald trump, ted cruz marco rubio, chris christie. >> jeb bush is done, out of this race i if i this room for establishment candidate it is going to be chris christie still has some life in him. >> ted cruz coming across very well moving up in polls as well. >> very very long. >> i want -- >> bush why do you think he
could not get into the final four. >> because i think we are dealing with a different kind of year, if this had been a normal political year yes jeb bush, about establishment figure successful governor of a big swing state a lot of money over 100 million dollars, in super pac so on, he would have been, it and a lot of people assume this would be a normal year this is not a normal year, 8 years of barack obama destructive policies people want a change, the conservative base does not trust establishment, they've been burned so many times they sent republicans to washington in wave elections nothing changed. >> that is yp trump resonates he is right likes energy he does he acts like -- personal opinion down the want to be there, he needs to show more are vim, vigor, something about hillary clinton, and donald trump, she beats him head-to-head matchup ip clinton's big problem arc plea
not trustworthy, 60% say clinton is not honest or trustworthy against 36% who say she is look at donald trump, donald trump, 59% voters nationwide say trump not honest or trustworthy, the difference. >> nobody cares about this numbers on trump because he is not a politician, mrs. clinton on national scene 25 years, and for the duration has been a cereal liar everybody knows this it is -- baked in -- >> -- all, why -- beating everybody how do you say that? >> go ahead. >> two reasons, number one, because the kreer yal liars about it will into cake with clinton's people already assume that, that is why the republicans if she is nominee -- >> i am a liar but effective. >> that is why the republicans -- should not -- not that is why republicans should not be raising that because people are -- they should be attacking her on competence not that the second reason why she is winning because left
has been very successful in changing the nature of the country, demographics, with illing he immigration, a built in advantage. >> why some republicans some conservatives get upset with donald trump, playing a little loose. whether you want to call it fibing a stretching the facts if you run against hill don't give you don't want to head-to-head, look -- almost as untrustworthy as she does according to poll looks almost as untrustworthy as she does. >> you might be right about that then you might be wrong, because -- [laughter] -- like. >> i don't know how voters are going to come down on this, you could be right you could be wrong he is a completely different personality noup politician people like willing to forgive him everything i
can do it when he says build a wall on southern border six months people believe it he can put a billed up in manhattan that amount of time. >> how significant do polls changing in new hampshire and iowa. >> i am not sure how to answer that, because voting is as much an emotional act as intellectual one people spend vote the way they spend money think about it want to feel good about it with trump right now the fact that this has gone from a summer, to an autumn winter roms telled me this is really real whether he with an translate enthusiasm to on the ground infrastructure, and get out the vote activity, that is still a bit unknown. >> more presidential before this is other. >> here is what i think, this whatsoever i think donald trump running a rope are a dope i think playing fast and loose to dagen's point about all this as we get cloture tore iowa new hampshire going to show up on debates and
flatten everybody with being completely on point. >> do you? >> wow. >> anymore your camp on that a smart guy you an entrepreneur adaptive prnersonality. >> i could be he totally wrong about this i think what you are watching is much more sophisticated and thought out operation than people assume. >> we have to wrap who is vice president. >>et if it is donald trump iet fiorina or martinez out of new mexico i think he needs a woman on ticket, i see a woman -- >> carly fiorina -- >> wow. >> all that? >> if you have. >> he is going to turn -- >> if you have if you have hillary top of the ticket the ticket possibly needs a woman. maria: we look to you next week. >> where he i is right now whether you like over time are or dislike him. >> let's see how he does binary option go for it. >> i want to hear what you write about this week back on that monica with us this
. maria: waiting on november adp number go by to be out 10 seconds right now estimate 190,000 jobs created, for the men and women of november, this is the adp report typically tells you what to expect for the jobs 217, 217,000 jobs created month novak better than expected on 217,000 jobs, created keith mccullough your analysis on this november adp number coming out right now. >> rates should go up on this, yesterday was a big down day for bond yields the market loved that because again, it backed off, the expectations that fed would raise rates into a o slowdown, so any bullish late cycle employment data if you don't know what late cycle is read up late cycle happened the end of the story employment happens the end, late cycle job gains, are what fed looking for to raise interest rates i read this up for interest rates probably flat to down for stock market
on that type of news the stock market everything is like bad news, yesterday ism report the worst number we've seen all yearlong the market removed it, so good news is probably bad to down for stock market today. maria: your thoughts 217,000 jobs. >> i agree with keith on rate increase you have to raise given magnitude on job front my wooirgz i was saying earlier on show about lack of ability to have he monetary stimulus when economy is skreenl going to need if it late cycle i agree with keith we probably are the fed usually needs to put 300 base points stimulus into our compromise i to keep us growing, can't do that -- the fiscal side not going to fixis congress and president can't get along going to run into a rough patch at some point 2016 early -- >> hike in cut basically you are saying hikes that you can cut you got to have snieblt that is the issue. >> and more bond behind --
gets bad enough strongest areas at least in terms of those of the consumer, you have the saving you are going there is concern out there savings rate at 3-year high, but you have auto sales whatever is reliant on cheap easier credit housing auto sales prominently hit. >> going into a presidential election cycle politics very interesting, couple weeks ago i said on this show that i didn't think the fed was going to raise rates through next november, right, because political pressure guess what a headlined this week that said democrats trying to perturb fed not to raise rates. >> whole point then going to start asking for a qe 4, entirely new to everybody else, of course, rubio running on antifederal reserve, he said he would remove janet yellen so again there is a and next series of debates had if indeed we are right economy continues to -- >> -- guantanamo bay will not remove janet yellen. >> you just let term expire.
maria: they want this they don't want to no more nato. >> herbert walker bush upset with alan greenspan in 1991 slowing down economy he he him and ross per ot. >> carter blamed volcker for raising rates said a main reason he didn't win people delusional. >> adp better than expected does that tell us jobs number better than expected,o ecb meeting, january jenn as well. >> a seasonal factor here that doesn't get readjusted in the november december period you have had last year two biggest job numbers of the year in november and december would i not be surprised if job number up to flat so area quote expectations most important point fed sees that will raise traits fed fund futures comply it opposite of that would shock the market. maria: does that mean if seeing the higher rates o going into slowdown we go into recession. >> first of all, the first
time any careers been 20 years federal reserve will raise rates into an ism below 50 or slowdown that has not happened, so prepare for that, you don't know what that looks like. >> only 25 basis points i think market of digest it the economy will digest it if telling me 150 base point move here next 12 to 18 months would i be superworried about where we are economic cycle wise. maria: short break, 00 u.s. special forces headed to iraq to couple capture 2350i9 kill isis fighters former nato commander will be with us to tell us if this pan would work, back in a minute.
here at td ameritrade, they love innovating. and apparently, they also love stickers. what's up with these things, victor? we decided to give ourselves stickers for each feature we release. we read about 10,000 suggestions a week to create features that as traders we'd want to use, like social signals,

cheryl: that is right incredible maria, approximately 300 american or u.s. based isis supporters identified as recruiters for the terror group researchers at george washington university saying recruiters primarily use twitter to encourage individuals to attractively to iraq or syria to join self-proclaimed isis caliphate or to plan attacks within united states staying approximately 250 americans, have traveled or have attempted to travel to iraq or syria, while 900 active investigations in progress against isis supporters get this maria all 50 states. incredible report from university, back to you. maria: really is, they are using online so effectively, additional operation forces to battle isis in iraq 200 troops sent to the region within few weeks director of emerging market strategy urasis group
thanks for joining us. >> what is your take in terms of of the whole russia component of this u.s. russia he relations in the face of basically putin pushing america out of the way in syria. >> i think of the many objectives and aims in sir nonmore consequential than difference of opinion russia and united states how to deal with isis both agree isis a threat should be dealt with disagree on strategy for doing that, americans say in order to deal with isis you have to remove the -- first, because brutality pushes people into armed of isis, russians say hold on secretary if you are go fog remove isis -- backing him. >> backing him -- i will get to in a second but their view is that in order to deal with isis you need strengthen assad if you remove isis from syrian territory who is going to rule that territory so rirnz are working hard, to back assad to present a fait accompli the
option for the west, assad run syria or isis, both sides are right the americans are right, but skuni isis preys on suni grievances, we have seen in iraq in syria we have seen in libya, libya we have seen in yemen, so that that kind of conflicting -- philosophical approach is may go out. >> what does it mean if they can't come together. dagen: what is the endgame? if you cut a keel with putin want to extract something from you probably going to cost a lot more down if road. >> i think irexactly propriety putin usual russia's role in syria to get something that is to weaken eu sanctions against russia, right russia economy going to cop attract close to 4% putin no idiot understands that from illegally to repair that with europe why he knows for europeans the refugee crisis is the single most important political challenge that is true eu level true at
country level, in europe, he knows the europeans need to deal on syria he is guy who can bring it home. >> vladimir putin has longer term goals reestablish longer strerm strategic presence in syria, thip away at nato what the whole conflict with inefficiencying is all aboib turkish all about to again control of global oil supply with pipelines being built through the regional vladimir putin wants a hand in that doesn't he -- >> i think he does but immediate end is really about repairing that economic relationship with europe, right? russia has interest having a seat at the table key region of the world it is a geo political feather in cap the real issue very clear he wants to u to use syria levin to prayer economic rip primary challenge for russia. >> sound we are backed those intentions why don't we let isis tiek assad or we take
thim out eviscerate isis. >> you need to commit large numbers of ground troops. >> exactly. >> that is something for which there is neither strong public sport or strong strategy, right. >> our troops can certainly take out isis the question is what next, right, u.s. very good at taking territory from people not so good at being occupying nation building force the legacy of the first iraq war. >> president does not want casualties, he wants to do air strikes, because he figures that is not -- comaktimpacting casualties. >> casualties on other side so-called congressionally damage helps recruitment. >> thanks so much alex joining us urasis group be right back. stay with us. the pursuit of healthier.

the networks experienced fighters that it possesses. it's going to continue to be a serious threat for some time to come, but i'm confident that we are on the winning side of this. maria: and that was president obama remaining confident with his strategy to defeat isis, this as secretary of defense, ash carter, announced yesterday on capitol hill that new special operations troops will be sent to fight radical jihadists in syria and iraq. joining us right now is retired navy admiral and nato supreme allied commander in europe, good to see you, sir, thank you for joining us. >> you bet, good to see you. maria: first, let me get your take from what you just heard from president obama. i want to incorporate, of course, what's going on with russia and how that complicates the relationship among nato countries, but first, what's your response to what the president said in terms of getting our arms around isis and defeating this group? >> i think this is a necessary first step.
it's certainly necessary, unfortunately, maria, it's not sufficient. but it is a good step because with these special forces groups can do are three things, they'll gather intel on the ground and they're effective at doing that, number two, they'll direct strikes so our air campaign will be more effective. number three, they can conduct raids and kill and capture leadership from the islamic state. that will be effective, but it will not be enough to take this threat away from us. maria: why do you think the president has stayed so adamant in terms of getting more aggressive against isis? you know, he continues to say he's worri but if you're at war, you're at war. >> that would be my view. and i think there's a lot of middle east fatigue in the white house, they have come out of wars, in their view, in iraq and afghanistan, unfortunately, neither of those stories are done. so, i think we're going to have to overcome our antipathy to
troops on the ground. that doesn't mean we need 150,000 troops like in iraq and afghanistan. what it means 15 to 20,000 ground troops, i think we are going to build to that number, this is a step. maria: it seems like ultimately he's got to go there and perhaps this is leading forward that. let me turn to the russia story and, of course, the downing of that russian aircraft by turkey. a lot of people mentioning article five of danato. and how this confuses the fight among nato countries. >> article five, of course, is the treaty line that says an attack on one nation will be regarded as an attack on all. the fact that turkey has downed the russian aircraft, puts russia if they retal yit in a military way and attack turkey, that brings nato into the fight in a serious way. that's why you're seeing russia amping down the rhetoric and
trying very hard not to turn this into a military confrontation so i don't think we'll go there. what is really interesting to look at, maria, is whether or not nato as an alliance will come into the fight against the islamic state. i hope they do because it brings terrific capability. it's 28 nations, 52% of the world's gdp and three million troops under arms and aircraft, we can use that in the fight against the islamic state. i think that once the climate summit is over, you'll see them turn to the islamic state and whether or not to bring nato in the fight, i hope they do. maria: it's interesting. isn't nato in this fight now, particularly after turkey downed that russian jet? >> nato nations are in this fight. so, you're seeing britain, france-- britain, in fact, today, is having a debate with parliament whether to increase the strikes in syria. you're seeing the united states, turkey is somewhat in it. but the entire alliance, 28
nations know they're not 100% into this so adding them as a collective block would be s salutory against tunited states. face it, this is what putin wanted. his economy is based on oil and he's trading conflict, to the russian people, he is looking like the protector, but he got them into the situation in the first place bayou crane. do you think this is all by design? >> i think that putin has a plan to keep assad in power and i think he'll probably be effective at doing that, on the other hand, he's got to respond to the russian people outraged by the shootdown of the jet. so he will use military power against the united states. he'll see this as two different problems and of course, the
uberchallenge for putin is the russian economy going down the next few years. he's got a complex fact pattern he's got to deal with. i think he'll continue to back assad and increase his force and try to negotiate his way to inks is as relief. that's his goal. maria: what should nato do in regard to the muscle that isis had. we know that isis is the most powerful terrorist group we've ever seen. they make much of their money by selling oil on the black market and a lot of people believe turkey is buying that oil on the black market. so, should nato countries be getting involved stopping this caliphate, isis, getting more powerful by selling this oili? >> absolutely. two ways to go after that, in the cyber world to go after their finances and moving money.
maria: why aren't they, why haven't they? >> they are, they are doing it and it is an area in way nations really are uncomfortable a lot of times sharing information across the alliance because cyber is so sensitive. but i think the cyber push is the next big infantry against the islamic state's finances and the second thing is to go after the oil, maria, the same way we go after interdicting heroin or cocaine. it's a commodity, you can go after the source, after the transit zone, after the supply side in turkey. so those are the two fronts going after the finances and you're right to put your finger on it as a key. maria: so you think that nato gets more involved after the climate summits in paris and america gets more aggressive. how many thousands of troops on the ground do you expect president obama to ultimately succumb to? >> well, i'll tell you how many troops i think we need. maria: all right. >> and i think that number is somewhere around 15,000.
right now we've got about 3500, maybe 4,000 with the recent additions so he we've got to add about 10,000 troops. again, that's not like trying to drink the whole sea. this is not 150,000 troops. so we need to get up to about 15,000. we need to push allies to put about 6 or 7:00 alongside us and then energize the peshmerga and the forces, those are the ground troops we need. we continue the bombing campaign, the special ops, i think we'll see at that isis is not ten feet tall. maria: by the way, we keep hearing from our guests we've got the smallest navy we've seen. you're a four-star navy admiral. what do you have to say about the state of our defenses today, the fact that we do have the smallest navy ever? >> well, the good news, it's a very capable navy in terms of its combat abilities, but maria, numbers have a quality all their own. in other words, no matter how
good a ship is, it can't be in two places at the same time. so i'm very concerned about the size of our fleet. we need at least 330 ships to really meet our global commitments. i don't see that as part of the current narrative coming out of the governmentment i think we need to increase it. the story is too much the same on the other side in the army and air force, we live in a very dangerous world. maria: we do. thank you, add mal. we appreciate your time this morning. >> narngs a lot, maria. maria: we'll see you soon, james stsvridis. before we take a break, some of the best moments you may have missed earlier in the program. >> down to an outsider, and an establishment person. you know, at the end. day, is that field narrows so the question would be, is it a marco rubio or is it a bush. >> yeah. >> it looks like dr. carson is fading and so it's going to be one of those guys.
>> it's not just about syria and iraq anymore, it's about libya, too. isis has taken over in libya where it's essentially a failed state under this administration. >> donald trump is not only on the top, but he actually went up, maria, and he's winning among women according to this poll which is another thing they said would never happen. so, now, i don't think his quote, unquote, is alienating anyone. he's speaking the truth. standing up for american citizens. >> i think we need a return to normalizati normalization. i think the economy yawns off the first increase. >> you think it happens next week. >> i think it does. >> some folks are getting glocks under the tree and it's continuing-- >> glocks? >> well, a ruger, you take your pick, have at it, baretta. maria: you know a lot of guns. >> i'm from the south. jeb bush: here's the truth you will not hear
from our president: we are at war with radical islamic terrorism. it is the struggle that will determine the fate of the free world. the united states should not delay in leading a global coalition to take out isis with
overwhelming force. their aim is our total destruction. we can't withdraw from this threat or negotiate with it.
>> welcome back, the house and senate reaching an agreement on a major transportation bill. cheryl casone on it now. >> you bet, maria, lawmakers agreeing on a measure to fund highways and mass transit projects for five years, that's the longest in nearly two decades and also included in this bill, reviving the import-export, they agreed, this is congress. this morning, guys, mcdonald'ses testing changes at
600 restaurants in california, launching a system where employees would serve customers at their tables. mcdonald's is testing a new menu at the same stores. beef patties and grilled cutlets with a variety of bun options and finally this for-- i'll have a holiday story as we get closer to christmas. fans of "the christmas store", bid for a chance to stay in the house where it was filmed. this is a 120-year-old house, maria and bidding goes until next week, it's on ebay and the bidder also gets to have a little fun toy tied to the movie. did you ever see the movie. maria: i have not. i've seen it years ago, but not like in a hundred years. dagen: and it's on looped.
maria: you know what i mean. i saw it years ago, i haven't seen it in a long time. >> one of the only things beating fox business in the ratings are the holiday shows general way. the hallmark channel doing just as well as fox. maria: thank you, cheryl. i didn't know you were going to answer that. and making waves, a possible shake-up. >> the road ahead is looking rocky for yahoo!. the company board is considering selling off the core businesses according to wall street journal. and they're declining to talk to fox business. the board will reconsider the future of the core business in upcoming meetings. yahoo! appears to be sticking to its plan to sell off the 15% stake in alibaba next year, even after the irs declined to approve the spin-off with that huge tax bill. 32 billion dollars, and marissa

she's got a great record and personable and i had dinner with her at the conference. maria: you would recommend her as a running mate? >> no, i didn't say that. i said she's terrific. a big problem with the running mates as the sarah palin, they've got to do a ton of opposition research to figure out. maria: i think a lot of people like nikki haley and talking about her in the chris christie campaign. >> she's up there. got to be in the top two or three candidates for vice-president. >> she's dynamite and fantastic and when you're doing a choice, you have to keep in mind whether or not they can visit their state. south carolina is going to go republican anyway, what can she bring to the table. and i would say the governor of a swing state, new mexico, that would be more critical to a calculation. >> a great public speaker and a good record. maria: a good point. >> she's got the latino connection. but everybody has to be vetted
and that's the big issue right now. maria: and the next president will have to deal with the threat of recession. keith mccollough. >> who is talking about that? the global warming guy of the economy because i follow the data. gdp has just, for those of you who haven't. dagen: global cooling because you throw cold water on it. >> you're not talking about a guy talking about raining when it's raining. maria: the gdp report, keith, the impact from the-- >> you're in this bizarro world, money managers who crushed it as opposed to those who have been crushed, those who haven't been positioned for growth slowing. and the reality is that wall street is trying to get to the compensation gig by the end of the year and more talk of that as opposed to what the market is actually going to do in the next three to six months and my point would be in line with the
atlanta fed. they cut to 1.4%, which is just inside of the number. dagen: a 9% cut. maria: isn't that a bizarro world in and of itself? federal reserve raises interest rates as they cut their gdp forecast, so, again, this is again, never happened before. i assume it's all going to end quite well. so, no worry about that. >> i'd short the market right here. hopefully you do, too, there was short selling and there was in july and here in the s&p 500. >> don't forget about the former president charles evans, federal reserve yesterday. basically saying, look, i'm afraid of the fed raising rates into a global slowdown. they're talking about it, some of the governors, talking about it being compelling. it's mixed up right now, but i think they have to raise rates. i think that keith and i would agree on that, they have to raise rates. if they don't do a 25 point basis move, it will shock the
market, oh, what do they know and what is going on? people are going to lose confidence. the economy is doing well enough right now to justify a 25 basis point rate increase, the first one in nine years. >> this is where we differ. i do agree with anthony if they don't raise rates this'll completely shock the market from expectations perspective. there's a thing called the fed funds futures curve which basically says you have to go because you said you're going to go. but if you raise into the slowdown, i disagree, the economy has been slower than many, many people have thought this year and at its slowest points here in the fourth quarter. you look at retail sales, it's not just amazon. yesterday's pmi number, had four handles and it's bad. maria: the consumer has not shown up yet. dagen: the consumer hasn't shown up-- >> going to have to get it up. dagen: the consumer discretionary stocks year to date, best performing sector in the s&p 500.
maria: what about actual spending, the consumers and the back drop for the consumers. dagen: lately it's been worrisome because like people are saving their money, they're not out there spending it. saving rates right at a three-year high. i think you are seeing some retailers do okay. some retailers do all right. but a lot of them are in the toilet frankly. i'm saying i've been off and you're right. >> i'll go all uni-bomber on dagen here. the reason that people say consumer discretionary is up, because discretionary has had a 10% weighting in amazon, 7% in disney, those are the two companies driving consumer discretionary. dagen: nike is here an all-time high. maria: by the way, i don't think you're going to see sales on athletic wear or ipads. there are certain things that people are going to buy this holiday, includes athletic wear and technology. >> all the companies that have done well, they don't go on sale. maria: right, exactly.
that's what i'm saying. >> donald trump pulled out, says loser, you're huge. maria: dagen mcdowell, keith mccollough, anthony, thank you for being here, everybody. that will do it for us, and "varney & company" starts now. take it away. stuart: i shall indeed. it's one of the big news days with news for donald trump, and isis, contained or not? and a $45 billion gift to charity. good wednesday. we'll start with trump. he he's first and marco rubio is second: isis is contained, no, it's not says his top general. 250 troops are on their way overthere. facebook guy mark zuckerberg
