tv Lou Dobbs Tonight FOX Business February 5, 2016 7:00pm-8:01pm EST
the day, the money that's being spent on these refugees really is about failure. the policy in syria has failed. iran and russia, they've done an interim -- charles: let's leave it there. really, really is a shame. the man himself, lou dobbs, is next. ♪ ♪ lou: good evening, everybody, i'm lou dobbs. four days until the new hampshire primary, and donald trump remains firmly in first place. the republican presidential front runner with an average 16-point lead in the polls in new hampshire. trump, because of the weather, had to cancel a campaign event there and instead flew to south carolina for a campaign rally. we'll bring you the latest from that rally this hour. also tonight bernie sanders surging into what is a virtual tie with hillary clinton. a new national poll by quinnipiac university shows clinton with a two-point lead over sanders, 44-42%. sanders has all but erased what
had been a 31-point deficit in december. sanders scoring big last night in the democratic debate. here's sanders hitting clinton over her unspeakable relationship with wall street. >> now, if all we're going to talk about is one part of our economy and, indeed, one street in our economy, we're missing the big oil companies, we're missing other big energy companies. we're missing the big picture. >> madam secretary, it is not one street. wall street is an entity of unbelievable economic and political power. that's the fact. lou: we'll have a full report, political analysis with the weekly standard's fred barnes, the washington examiner's sarah westwood. and tonight new warnings that the obama administration has been downplaying the threat posed to americans by zika virus and doing far too little to counter the public health threat. experts are pushing for tighter
screenings as zika spreads across the americas. here in this country 11 states and washington, d.c. have now reported cases of the mosquito-borne illness. we'll have details on that threaten tonight from fox news medical a-team member dr. marc siegel. and we'll take up concerns about food poisoning at some of the most popular restaurants from e. coli at chipotle to nor provirus at buffalo wild wickings. -- wings. as we head into super bowl sunday. talk about bad timing. our top story tonight, the fight for new hampshire. most of the republican field now stumping across the granite state except for front runner donald trump who's in south carolina. but that certainly hasn't stopped his opponents to -- from attacking him. fox news' chief political correspondent carl cameron with our report. >> reporter: a snowstorm and preparations for the final debate tomorrow night has slowed
the candidate on new hampshire's campaign trail today. occasional whiteout conditions lasted until early afternoon. marco rubio is gaining ground at 17% in a statistical tie with the iowa caucus winner, ted cruz, at 15%. john kasich is in fourth place at 10% in a dead heat with jeb bush who leads the single digits pack. because of the storm, trump missed a second day of campaigning here in new hampshire this week. yesterday some of his remarks needed to be bleeped, and trump dropped an f-bomb in portsmouth. >> we're going to bring businesses back. we're going to have businesses, we're going to have businesses that used to be in new hampshire that are now in mexico come back to new hampshire, and you can tell them go [bleep] themselves -- [cheers and applause] >> reporter: he got some applause, but a lot of criticism. >> i don't think a president would have shouted profanities
in a speech in front of thousands of people with kids in the crowd. >> who did that? >> your buddy. he does it all the time. i mean, that's different because our culture's different. that would have never been acceptable in the age of reagan or my dad. >> yes. i mean, unbelievable. >> the candidate tweeted a picture of mrs. bush shaking hands with a little girl. john kasich holds his 100th town hall tonight in new hampshire and disdained trump's outbursts. >> you don't want to just lose your temper. i mean, you're the president of the united states. you're the father of america. act like it. and so for me, you know, it's about, about staying cool. >> reporter: kasich and some reporters got ambushed by his staff with snowballs after the event. >> because they came in second and third in iowa you're going to let them come in second and third in new hampshire? >>chris christie warned them backing trump could cost them
their first in the nation status. >> if you reward people who don't spend time here, no one's going to spend time here. >> reporter: chris christie is using rick santorum who dropped out of the race and endorsed rubio but couldn't name any of the florida senator's achievements. that ad has been duplicated by jeb bush who uses the same santorum quotes and illustrates just how much momentum rubio may have and his now taking the status of the man to beat on the granite state campaign trail. lou? lou: carl cameron. i have to say, some of the expressions of those candidates and in the case, one case at least -- i mean, are priceless. these are candidates we could not unvent in any way -- invent in any way had they not arrived for all of our benefit. well, the democratic race is dramatically tightening. clinton's once-comfortable national lead over senator sanders is gone, and polls show she's likely to lose big in new hampshire.
fox news' chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> reporter: as bernie sanders pulled into a virtual tie with hillary clinton in a national poll, he packed the famed exeter town hall so tight the fire marshal shut it down, and a spillover to crowd waited to hear him urge voters to stand up loud and proud next tuesday. >> yes, we are going to move this country in a very new direction. thank you all very much. [cheers and applause] >> reporter: sanders leads hillary clinton here in new hampshire by double digits. in a new national poll by quinnipiac found she's only up two points after beating him by 31 points in the same poll back in december. sanders is fueled in particular by enthusiasm among young people that has befuddled clinton. >> i want to say a word to the extraordinary people, particularly young people who are supporting senator sanders. i know you may not be for me now, but i am for you. >> reporter: in last night's
debate, their first chance to go head to head without martin o'malley, was dominated by sanders' agenda, especially the influence of wall street, including campaign contributions and speaking fees clinton has taken from giants like goldman sachs which sparked a fiery response from her. >> so i think it's time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out -- >> oh. >> in recent weeks. >> reporter: today at a breakfast hosted by "the wall street journal," clinton's chief strategist goaded sanders for not launching those attacks directly to her face, though team clinton back pedaled into her promise to releasing the transcripts of her private talks with private firms. >> i don't think voters are interested in the transcripts of her speeches. >> reporter: both sides are using celebrities to get out the vote with sanders using the founders of ben and jerry's ice cream to clinton campaigning with several of her former senate colleaguings. colleagues.
>> i use the term called a rigged economy. people like elizabeth warren, and i use that term. >> reporter: clinton aides are discounting the credibility of that quinnipiac poll and say they're hopeful once this race gets beyond iowa and new hampshire, clinton is going to do a lot better especially in the south with african-american voters. lou? lou: ed, thank you very much. ed henry. critics were also blasting hillary over her attempt to deflect her e-mail scandal by saying she is not the only one who used personal e-mail accounts for official business. listen to mrs. clinton at last night's debate. >> now, we had a development in the e-mail matter told. when it came out that secretary powell and close aides to former secretary rice used private e-mail accounts. i am 100% confident this is a security review that was requested. it is being carried out, it will be resolved. but i have to add if there's
going to be a security review about me, there's going to have to be security reviews about a lot of other people including republican office holders. lou: this is where we say, ooh. the dozen e-mails reportedly connected to those cases, however, represent what is nothing more than a slight fraction of the more than 600 now-classified e-mails found on mrs. clinton's personal e-mail server. no other secretary of state ever set up a private home brew server for official business as did the former secretary, hillary clinton. in a troubling development concerning the zika virus, brazilian health officials have found live samples of that virus in urine and is saliva. as of right now it is unclear whether zika is transmissable through bodily fluids, but the prospect does raise the possibility the zika epidemic could spread far more rapidly than previous hi thought. some experts are, in fact,
warning federal officials respect taking the threat seriously enough. a doctor at baylor college of medicine telling fox news, quote: i think zika will come to america and, actually, i think it may be more important than the messaging we're getting out of washington and the centerses for disease control and prevention. we'll have much more on the zika threat here tonight, and we are coming right back with that and much, much more. stay with us. a lot of don't you dare at the democratic debate. hillary clinton lets loose on bernie sanders. >> i think it's time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out -- lou: things get more interesting as clinton's poll numbers slip. fred bars, sarah westwood with us next. and it's called "nitro circus." what could possibly go wrong when four people, three of them from the audience, get on a motorbike to try a back flip on

little less low energy. >> he's almost too polite. i don't advise him, but if i gave him advice, i would say why don't you interrupt like the other people do. >> really? >> yes, i would say that. >> i've gotten better at interrupting, mom, come on. >> you mean interrupt during the dedebate? >> yes. he's so polite. we brought him up that way. and he does not brag like some people we know. lou: and there you have it. joining us now, executive editor for the weekly standard, fred barnes, investigatorrive reporter for the washington examiner, sarah west woold. good to have you both here. obviously, jeb's mother very proud of him and not afraid still to counsel him. what do you think of her advice? it sounded a little trumpian, didn't it? [laughter] >> it did a little bit. and bringing barbara bush out on the trail, it's just the latest tactic for jeb bush to try anything that could possibly connect with voters. she's right that these debates have not been too great for jeb bush with the exception, possibly, of the last one where
he performed a little better. they just have showcased the fact that he's so out of place in this race. but bringing his mom out is a way to sort of humanize him a little more than we've seen. lou: fred, did it work? >> no, in a word. [laughter] look, i mean, excellent manners are not the problem that jeb bush has in this election. he's just been a bad candidate, a weak candidate and one without a compelling message. and unfortunately for him, i think he was a dazzlingly good governor of florida, but that was a decade ago, and people don't seem to care about that in this election. you know, there's nothing that his mother can do to change that. lou: and nothing his mother can do to help out donald trump either who had to cancel a campaign event in new hampshire because of the weather. he took advantage and went to south carolina. do you think this'll hurt him in the results in new hampshire, sarah? >> you know, it could. the recent polls between iowa
and new hampshire are showing that donald trump's lead is shrinking, and it's possible that his support is eroding too quickly for polls to even put their finger on. the only thing that's been consistent about the half dozen polls that have come out this week has been that rubio is gaining ground and donald trump is losing it. everyone else at bottom is sort of shuffling around. lou: i have to say ted cruz said that marco rubio is the anointed one by the national media and the national establishment, fred. and you can brush that aside until you look down at the copy. when trump had 38%, he was frozen at 38% according to the new hampshire media, and now that he's losing some, you know, a few points he's losing ground. you know, this would drive any candidate nuts, but in particular trump. what more do you think we will be witnessing here? >> well, look, i mean, trump needs to win in new hampshire. i think he will.
the bigger the margin, the better he is. he's ahead in all the polls in all the other states, he's ahead in south carolina, that comes next, and he needs to do well in new hampshire. his lead is so big that it's very hard, i think, for marco rubio or anybody else to cut in it in a way that really would jeopardize trump's chances of winning. but, look, trump has to be careful. i think he made a big mistake by using the f-word and things like that while campaigning and speaking in public. i mean, just because he's been able to do things that other candidates can't -- lou: it makes you think -- >> -- it doesn't mean he can do everything. lou: it makes you think maybe he's not as interested in the evangelical vote as we had all assumed. [laughter] >> yeah, exactly. i mean, he's not pitching that in new hampshire the way he was in iowa, so it's clear, you know, that might not be core part of his message. lou: the other part of this is, of course, as we look at what is happening with the other candidates, there is a race here
for second, third. i mean, marco rubio, for crying out loud, the way the media has reacted to the game of expectations and the massage of strategists is, i mean, you would think that, you would think that marco rubio had won iowa based on the, well, the copy that's to being turned out by various news organizations. and you would think that trump was in sixth place. fred, i don't get the sense that the american people are that tunnel. am i wrong? >> well, they are -- i think you've gotten a little overdramatic here. lou: you tell me the part where i'm overdramatic, and i'll taupe it down, i -- i'll tone it down. >> you can't make the case that trump has been undercoverred. i mean, look -- lou: oh, no, i'm not suggesting in any way that he's being under-covered. i'm saying that there is some considerable, it seems, weight of the facts in a direction that
becomes somewhat i would say a little vaporous in terms of -- >> and if you follow these early primaries and caucuses over the years as i have, this is normal. i mean, walter mondale back in 1984 beat gary hart by about 35 points, and coming out of there you'd have thought hart had won because, look, the media does want a race. and they'd love to have a, say, trump/rubio race. and maybe they'll get one. lou: yeah. i think they've got a trump/rubio/cruz race, and maybe more will be in the party coming out of new hampshire. that would be a delight for all of us. >> i doubt it. lou: well, that's why you're here. [laughter] who's going to come out of there the winner? >> well, bernie sanders on the democratic side, for sure. lou: all right. and on the republican? >> well, i think trump will win, rubio second and maybe little old john kasich third. he's spent a lot of time there. lou: all right. there we got it, and i hope we're saluting your
prognostication powers next week. sarah, your thoughts? who wins on the republican side and the democrat? >> i agree donald trump, he's going to pull it out. i don't think by as big a margin as everyone is predicting though, and bernie sanders, i think, is definitely going to win new hampshire. lou: all right, sarah, fred, thank you both for being here. be sure to vote in our poll or or -- poll tonight. do you believe that polls will this time accurately reflect the outcome of the new hampshire primary? there was a little problem in iowa. we'll see what happens. we want to hear from you about your thoughts. cast your vote on twitter @loudobbsnews. links to everything at loudobbs.com. breaking news now, the u.s. geological survey is reporting a powerful 6.4 magnitude earth quake has struck southern taiwan.

gap slightly with donald trump. senator ted cruz also in the granite state. he hasn't gotten much momentum carryover from his win in iowa. he had, has a much weaker ground game, the experts tell us, in new hampshire. and the fellow they're all trying to beat is donald trump. this is donald trump in florence, south carolina, tonight. these are live pictures. let's hear what he's saying right now and, hopefully, we won't need to bleep anything out. >> in case anybody doesn't know. so we go in, and i said, you know, somebody said, jeb bush said donald trump's tone is not nice. [laughter] my tone. they're chopping off -- he's low energy. [laughter] they're chopping off the heads of christians in the middle east, and many other people, and we're supposed to have a nice tone, okay? we're supposed to have a wonderful tone. well, ladies and gentlemen, is it nice that the world is an evil place? you have to understand the world is tough right now.
this is like medieval times. you know, when we read about medieval times they used to chop off heads, i never heard of chopping off heads until recently. james foley, remember james? the great, beautiful james foley. his parents are great people, but they started chopping off heads. where do we hear -- these are people that are animals, and we've got to end it. we've got to knock the hell out of them and fast. fast. [applause] lou: donald trump in a 10,000-capacity stadium. we cannot -- arena, i should say. we can't tell you how many people are there, but it is a lot. it may even be at capacity. which is what he's done in most of his venues. and, obviously, he has the audience, as he usually does, what is the expression, eating out of the palm of his happened. well, a few thoughts now, if i may, and we will be going back whenever developments and content warrant it. but i'd like to share a few thoughts with you on the president and his views on this economy.
the labor department today reported the unemployment rate has fallen to 4.9 percent. that's great, that's the lowest since 2008, and it was enough to rouse president obama and prompt him to tell the networks he had a few things to tell the american people about our improving economy. he's bestowed on america in his final year great progress, he says. president obama managing a somewhat forced victory lap and simultaneously an unconvincing swipe at republicans for what he sees as their gloomy outlook on his bright, shiny economy. >> the united states of america right now has the strongest, most durable economy in the world. i know that's still inconvenient for republican stump speeches as their doom and despair tour plays in new hampshire. lou: as if he is such an ebullient, effervescent fellow himself.
i mean, he was -- well, not rousing. and, obviously, he didn't mention he once slammed president bush on the campaign trail back in 2008 saying it was unpatriotic and irresponsible to add to the national debt, which is exactly what he has dope. we are -- he has done. we are here nearly eight years later, and mr. obama has added nearly $9 trillion to our $19 trillion national debt. certainly, it would be a departure for mr. obama to take responsibility for the historically low labor force participation rate. the record 94 million americans who aren't in the labor force and the pessimism that many americans feel about our economy. here's how he handled that issue today. >> there's still anxiety and concern about the general direction of the economy, and part of it is there's still a pretty big carryover from the devastation that took place in 2007-2008. lou: there's a big carryover? notice what he did there?
he didn't blame it all on george bush by name. no, he just took it back to 2007 and '8 as be nothing had happened in the two terms he served as president. mr. obama could have easily gone back to 2000 itself and mentioned the role of deregulation on wall street and the financial industry and, yes, the repeal of glass-steigel in the clinton administration. but then he would have been blaming president clinton, and that wouldn't do while mr. clinton's wife being criticized as far too close to wall street, would it? accountability can be so awkward for these politicians, and it was today for our president. our quotation of the evening, this one from, first, on president obama's penchant for blaming george bush. it has been noted by a keen observer of politics that, quote: george washington is the only president who didn't blame the previous administration for his troubles. and with the new hampshire primary all but upon us, it's
appropriate to recall mark twain's inspiring words. quote: if voting made any difference, they wouldn't let us do it! end quote. mark twain was quite the kidder, wasn't he in we're coming right back, stay with us. health officials making a shocking discovery about the zika virus, a discovery that raises the possibility the epidemic can spread quickly. dr. marc siegel is here next on what's being done and what you should be doing. and a rare moment and amazing imagery aboard this amazing imagery aboard this boeing 777 all caught on video. at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like social media equals anti-social. hey guys, i want you to meet my fiancée, denise. hey.

they will do -- putin, the russians, the iranians, back assad, will do anything it take to win. >> here is what they have done to this point. it appears they have stymied if not defeated the rebels in syria. that's a major development. we cannot corroborate it yet. that's how daughter circumstances are. and of course putin. secondarily the turks have backed off. you can describe it any way you want to. but after calling emergency meetings the curl tish government backed off significantly. and right now russia has air superiority if you will over the region between the border between turkey and syria. >> they have got air superiority over us because we won't fight. but, lou, right now, the
turks -- they obviously don't want a head-on collision with russia. but they know we won't back them up. meanwhile -- lou: that may be a healthy thing. it can be a disastrous for them if they presume that president obama were other than who he is. >> the other thing in syria right now. the rebels, the guys we back, had one big prize. they were clinging to part of the i of aleppo. everybody knows damascus. but aleppo was always the biggest city in the financial center. damascus is washington, aleppo was new york city. right now the assad regime backed by russia and iran is on the verge of taking it completely. that could be the death nell of the month rat resistance. meanwhile we are fighting isis
and keeping isis out of the picture. putin is brilliant. he has us doing part of the work for him while he destroys the insurgents we backed. >> japan put it forces on alert as has the united states preparing for what is -- appears to be the launch of a rocket to put a satellite in orbit. it's unclear what the point is. north korea to do that perhaps as early as monday. ways your expectation? >> there is only one key to north korea and that key is china. we are limited in what we can do short of war. they will continue to push the envelope until there is probably a clash with south korea before japan. you can't blame obama fully for this. the on way obama plays into this is if the north koreans know he isn't going to do anything.
lou: obamacareys sufficient burden of blame. but there are administration after administration on for so much that alls our foreign policy. always good to see you, thank you, sir. security cameras capturing a tornado's fewery. the ef-1 tornado hit a tennessee school. students were out of class for the day. tornado packed winds uo 95 miles per hour. this is a security camera at the school. it traveled 2 1/2 miles on the ground. significant damage to a number of homes. fortunately no fatalities reported. and powerful storm and a good day for school to be out. web bush slams -- jeb bush slams

drops the a mild expletive, how about when he told people, how about applauding now. lou: iowa, this attack from jeb bush from various folks on marco rubio, saying he's got a canned speech. he gives canned answers. be tough, national media. what do you make of such an attack? >> aren't they all canned? trump totally changed the game. i'm sure you have seen his notes. they are like five points. one of them is hillary clinton, disgusting. he's the one who goaftds out there and ad-libs. i think they all do it, right? >> i think it looks desperate on these guys. they are all in the same lane.
rubio is surging. i happen to think rubio is tremendous on his feet. the speech he gave made him look like he won iowa. lou: you mean the canned speech? >> it works, though. lou: that's the process. but i tell you, this far into this presidential campaign, it's bent best ever. these candidates are talking about issues they never wanted to talk about. they are being held accountable. there is an exception but i won't bring up her name. the reality is, this has been an amazing campaign. but even now i want to shout out to all of them. take a day off. reload. we want to hear some new stuff. we want new lines. we want to you look at new facts. freshen up your approach. get some new material.
>> and refocus who we are supposed to be going after at the end of the day, and that's hillary clinton. lou, i know you are feeling the bern. i know you bush bernie comes out on top. lou: i'm thrilled it's a tight race in the democratic party and thrilled that you have three or four contenders in the republican party. i don't want to see a coronation in either party. i want rough and tumble, maybe a bloody noles or a scratch here or there. what do you think? >> amen. >> just to get to pennsylvania. through, thanks for being with us. we appreciate it. 80% of you have said you believe donald trump is sufficiently committed to winning and he's going to spends big on grounds operations and the remaining primaries. we'll see how expectations hold up. we thank you for being with us.
