issues inside of the cruz campaign? bret baier is standing by to weigh in on that one. david: then there is donald trump. he is on a roll aiming to keep his winning streak alive. outspoken conservative erick erickson will never vote for "the donald" even if he is the republican nominee. [closing bell rings] he is up against roger stone, big trump supporter. fireworks to come. big rally on wall street, if you're in stocks probably making money today. only if you have gold could you lose a little bit of money. all the indices up over a point and we're going to have a lot more to tell you what happened with oil, way up today. melissa: stocks surging, driven higher by a spike in oil. let's go to alan knuckman, trading advantage, watching all the action from the cme. alan, what is fueling the rally in oil today in your opinion? >> i think we're seeing a technical asset bottom.
it is not just oil but if you look at the correlation between the oil and the stock market they made the same bottom base in crude and stocks from the low we saw in february. we've seen a nice reversal. in the middle of a range for oil where we've been trading a move up to 36 could get shorts scrambling. we've seen a nice leg to the upside. we're now at the upper end of the range. we've been trading between 1950 and 1810 in the s&p. a break to the upside. you do the math, add 140 points on top, the target is 2100 on the s&p if the breakout follows through. melissa: yeah. how do you see this translating to the other refined products right now? >> well, crude oil obviously is benchmark, that is what people focus on. we're still in the winter season. here in chicago we'll be, refiners will be shifting production and doing their maintenance. so in the near term, that could be supportive of prices. but, you know overall if you
look at natural gas, if you look at gasoline they continue to drift lower and lower but i think we're in a similar psychological situation with crude oil we were in gold just a couple months ago where everybody was short. if you think about where the euro currency was in march of 2015, nobody could think of a good reason to buy the euro and that's typically when a bottom gets put in. melissa: absolutely good logic, alan. thank you very much. david. david: joining me with more on these crazy markets, paul christopher, head global market strategist at wells fargo investment institute. paul, first of all, how much longer do you think markets will be tracking oil? >> i think markets are going to be tracking oil until oil puts in not just a bottom but starts to show signs of a rally. stocks will stay connected to oil till then. all gets back to global growth concerns. david: talk about growth. because a lot of people are wondering whether this market bounce we've had over the past week is due to a stronger economy or at least a stronger economy in the u.s., maybe not
global. or is it that the market is just giving in to the fact that the fed has admitted it gives up, it will do what the market wants it to do? >> well i haven't seen the fed make such a willing statement yet but i do think that it is going to take a while before the global growth concerns are bonn. china is still out there as a worry for some people. really supply, oil supply, really hasn't come down yet to the point where we think there is new equalibrium. we think there will be period of volatility in commodities and in global growth concerns. you've got british exit possibility from the e.u. coming up in june. it will be a volatile year. not to mention the politics. david: paul, you don't think the fed has telegraphed the fact that they're not going to do anymore rate hikes this year? >> i think that remains to be convincing signal. david: huh. okay. there could be another rate hike. what about the fact that we've had three quarters in a row now of where the s&p companies
profits have been down? a lot of people are calling it a profits recession. doesn't that concern you? >> yes, that does concern us and we do continue to see modest growing in the u.s. economy. we're expecting modest growing into the end of the year. we think is a one of those periods where the economy wanes a little bit. it happened before. it happened in 2011. we think we'll get improvement in earnings as the year progresses and economy bounces back to stronger growth pace. david: it is an election year so anything could happen. paul christopher, great stuff. melissa. melissa: ted cruz asking his communications director to step down. peter barnes is the at cruz rally where news broke moments ago. peter i was watching you guys live and ted cruz said it. what was reaction like there? reporter: he hasn't brought it up here to this crowd of supporters. he was talking to reporters in a side room when he made those comments.
reacting to this controversy, accusations by senator marco rubio, campaign senior communications advisor rick tyler engaged in dirty tricks with the posting of a video from a student newspaper this past weekend and, that purported to show senator rubio dismissing the bible when he walked into a hotel room, hotel lobby rather in south carolina and saw cruz's father and a staffer reading the bible together. rubio's comments subtitled in this video said that rubio told cruz's father and the staffer, quote, got a good book there, not many answer in it. rubio campaigned immediately tweeted out correct comment from senator rubio in the video was quote, "got a good book there. all the answers are in it." rick tyler apologized last night on facebook for posting, tweet
out this video. said he had made a mistake. that the audio was not clear. then senator cruz today dogged by this controversy, announcing just in the last half hour he requested rick tyler's resignation. here is what he said. >> rick tyler is a good man. this was a grave error of judgment. it turned out the news story he sent around was false but i'll tell you even if it was true, we are not a campaign that is going to question the faith of another candidate. even if it was true, our campaign should not have sent it reporter: no word, whether rick tyler left the campaign. usually when the boss asks you to resign you do. but we are awaiting official confirm place of that. senator rubio said earlier today before all this that he accepted tyler's apology. cruz campaign's apology and donald trump tweeting about it just a few minutes ago saying quote, wow, ted cruz falsely suggested marco rubio mocked the
bible and was just forced to fire his communications director. more dirty tricks. melissa? melissa: peter, thank you so much. let's bring in bret baier. set anchor of "special report" on fox news. bret, this is quite a turn of events happening last 30 minutes. i was watching the press conference. i knew we were supposed to have rick tyler on. i heard him apologize earlier today. to hear ted cruz he asked for his resignation. do you think is was really about this tweet incident or had there problems been brewing and this was sort of the straw that broke the camel's back? >> melissa, good afternoon. this narrative that has stuck to ted cruz since iowa and the ben carson back and forth, that ben carson was going to get out of the race and his campaign apologizing for that. then there was couple other things. robocalls in south carolina. the photo of rubio shaking president obama's hand that was to the toe shopped and it wasn't him. so, they started getting
bombarded by this. every time something came out, it seemed like a dirty tricky about the campaign. so when this thing was retweeted by rick tyler, not having the right translation, and then he had to apologize, it was sort of the straw that broke the camel's back, and it fit that narrative. they had to do something and he chose to ask for the resignation of his communications director. melissa: do you think all of that could be blamed on rick tyler though? is all that workings of one man? >> no. it is not. he was the sacrificial lamb that had to be thrown under the because of this problem. i mean when ted cruz wins evangelical, or loses evangelicals in the up state of south carolina, this is a bad thing. i'm sure they looked at those exit polls and figured out that donald trump was winning based on telling and saying that ted cruz was a liar and dirty tricks
and tweeting out this, all this stuff. they're looking at nevada saying, we can't have that happen. but you know, this is this too little too late. melissa: you're somebody obviously all over this. you're following this every day. does it feel like this campaign is coming a bit unhinged? >> it does feel different than the campaign coming out of iowa. they had this steam, this moment where they seemed like they would be rolling along and south carolina was a state that lined up for them but to come in third in south carolina and to see donald trump beat ted cruz in those really, those areas that he should have won, that suggested something was wrong. this is a course correction. he is not likely to do great in nevada. we don't know but heading into the polls it didn't look he was lining up that well in nevada but he is spending some time out there this afternoon. melissa: let me make the comparison to marco rubio because obviously he had that stumble in new hampshire, had
same kind of feel afterwards where he made a big gaffe, where he lost a lot of momentum. he came out, you went, i don't know if he is going to make it. does it feel like he has recovered and could cruz do the same? >> there is time for cruz to bounce back but what is really crucial for the cruz campaign is to post very well in those sec primary states on march 1st. there are a series of them and he spent a lot of time at some of these states that will be voting that day. it does feel like you're right, the stumble that rubio took in that debate in new hampshire he did bounce back to second place in south carolina. and now, the expectations are that rubio is going to do better in nevada. the real story on the republican side is that the dominance of donald trump. melissa: yeah. >> the fact that, with these guys in here, you can't see a state where these other, these other men pull off an upset. melissa: bret, we drafted you at the last second to talk about this specifically. i hope you will stick around
because i want to ask you about the math involved going ahead because we've heard so much about hillary clinton having superdelegates locked up before she got out of the gate. you talked about the trump's lead. i hope we see you in the next block? >> you will. melissa: nothing like asking on television. david: segue into this tease, the case before trump and case against trump, republicans digging in on both sides. coming up, erick erickson, big in the conservative movement, why he will never ever vote for trump even if he is the party's nominee. we'll hear from him, roger stone, big trump supporter. fireworks to come. stay tuned. also 25-year-old yelp employee goes on a rant in open letter to the ceo. she says she can't afford to eat and pay the rent at same time on company's entry level salary. but, could this all be her fault? if you're running a business,

john kasich. from a math perspective can trump be overtaken at this point do you think. >> first of all in the polls in those states you just mentioned donald trump set look currently. melissa: yeah. >> you're right those home state governor and senator could make a comeback there. going in right now, donald trump is up double digits in florida and ohio. yes they could make a comeback. winner take all states are the ones to take but momentum has something to do with this. and, once you start looking at all of the proportional delegates, candidates will get some for posting up second, third, fourth in some of these states but overwhelming amount of delegates will go to the winner, which looks to be donald trump in some of these states where he has big leads. south carolina he won all 50 of the delegates because i got the, allotment for being the wimmer which was 26. the rest were done by congressional district and he won them all. melissa: i heard the narrative
all weekend long. folks talking about everybody has to get out. has to be anti-trump versus the trump and they can beat him. to me that sounded like a lot of wishful math t would have to happen very quickly and right candidate on the other side it seeps. let me ask you about the democrats because this one really bugs me. base early on, people were saying if you look at the superdelegates, before the thing even gets out of the gate hillary clinton has it locked up. she has enough superdelegates to go all the way to the convention. the whole thing, in many ways, democrats were not really getting a chance to vote. now people are saying it is close, it could happen. what is the truth about the math on the democrats side? >> superdelegate is a state party leader, bigwig, and in each state there are a few. hillary clinton has commitments from them. and the other delegates are determined by how the candidates finish in those states.
bernie sanders has an uphill pat he will, but -- uphill battle, he had momentum winning state after state, the superdelegates can switch. they're not locked in. even though they pledged to hillary clinton they could switch to the haven't all winner if bernie sanders was winning. momentum has something to do with it. with that big win over the weekend hillary clinton heads to south carolina where she is well-positioned with the african-american community and super tuesday with the biggest machine. her issue is money. that is why she is taking days off on the campaign trail to raise money. bernie sanders doesn't have the issue. so it is still a fight. melissa: interesting, bret baier, you are the smartest on these issues. thanks for sticking around on this, i appreciate it. >> have a good one. david: all the bernie supporters thought they would be voting for bernie in the primaries they're getting ticked off. melissa: i hope so. david: if hillary gets all the
superdelegates, she gets nomination, maybe a lot of those bernie supporters won't come to the general election? melissa: it is does not feel right. superdelegates get to do whatever they want. david: particularly if you're a bern i supporter they may have trouble corralling them. more news from the campaign trail, former homeland security director tom ridge is throwing his support behind another candidate now that jeb bush dropped out for president. ridge is endorsing ohio governor john kasich. will sign on as national co-chairman of the kasich campaign. supreme court is back in significance. what the death of justice scalia means for the pending cases at the nation's highest court. gop establishment is looking at marco rubio one candidate to take down donald trump. our panel weighing in on rubio's path to try to secure the nomination without having won a single state.

david: highest court in land is back in session. they are back to hearing oral arguments for first time since sudden death of justice scalia morners paying respects before he was laid to rest. seems like all of washington came out. president wasn't there. vp was though. fox news's shannon bream, joins us now with details. get right to the issue of what kind of cases might be decided by this 4-4 court? >> it is interesting because there are still so much work to be done this term. there are cases on abortion and president's use of executive power just days away for right now, the bench and seat where justice scalia sat there still draped in back. they will stay that way for 30 days. got back to work this morning. chief justice john roberts reading memorial tribute to his missing colleague. 292 majority opinions scalia authored during his years on
bench, he was also known on occasion to dissent. that provoke ad lot of laugher in the courtroom given biting colorful dissent scalia wrote when he was not happy with the majority opinion. president moving ahead spending weekend researching potential nominees. he expects the senate judiciary committee holding a hearing on the nominee. wants the full senate to vote. the expects that too. white house press secretary josh earnest said that the president talked with democrats and republicans on the hill including some on the critical senate judiciary committee about this situation. >> while there is plenty of time to do this work the president and his team are moving expeditiously to nominate someone and put someone forward so that congress can pull fill their responsibility. reporter: so the senate judiciary committee chair, chuck grassley, majority leader mitch mcconnell will meet with gop members of the committee tomorrow. they wrote a piece for "the washington post," opinion piece saying it is up to the american people rather than a
lame duck president who they say priority and policies they just rejected in the most recent national election who should be the ones afforded the opportunity to replace justice scalia. for now, david, at least unclear whether they will even let a committee hearing go forward. david: shannon, very quickly, as you mentioned he had eloquent dissenting opinions but also had eloquent majority opinions he made second amendment, heller case which assured that an individual, not just a militia had the right to carry arms, the second amendment. is that, in danger of being overturned? >> there are great concerns about that because there are other important second amendment cases bubbling up through the lower courts in the circuits. those have not been taken up by the court. almost certain now that those who would hope for positive effect on expanding more individual rights for the second amendment they have a right to worry without scalia on the bench now. david: shannon bream, we're glad you're there watching whole situation. thank you very much. melissa. melissa: donald trump riding a
wave of confidence to nevada but when it comes to the presidential tone the gop frontrunner says it will come, eventually. >> presidential at the appropriate time. right now i'm fighting for my life. i was fighting against a tremendous amount of very talented, very tough people and, i didn't really have time to think about it. i had to be tough and i had to be smart and be sharp. that's okay too. melissa: to support or not support. roger stone and erick erickson join us next to duke it out. david: one ivy league school has a homework dilemma. where some college students say activism is actually interfering with their studies. poor kids. melissa: ah.

the all-new glc. the suv the world has been waiting for. starting at $38,950. david: frontrunner donald trump taking a victory lap in atlanta after his first place finish in the palmetto state. take a look. >> we picked up every single vote. we picked up every single delegate. we walked away with 50. there are 50 and we picked up 50. tell you what, we're just going one after another. are we going to win georgia? [cheers and applause] david: but a number of anti-trump republicans say they could never vote for him including one of our next guests. erick erickson, editor of the resurgent, fox news contributor. in other corner we have roger stone, former senior advisor to trump, head of committee to
restore greatness a trump super-pac. erick, you had a piece saying i will not vote for donald trump ever suggesting that conservatives are being snooker ad bit by trump saying he is has become a conservative. but trump won south carolina with the support of people like jerry fallwell, jr. and others. why are they wrong? >> look at all of donald trump's statements, he is recent convert. i don't find a road to damascus conversion. sounds like the conversion when a guy wants to date at preacher's daughter. no guarranty he has the vote won't go back to the which he has been. he has been consistent proponent of planned parenthood and government-run health care. if he is republican nominee, the party doesn't reflect my values. david: why he is wrong? >> i won't say the is pure conservative you about the best conservative for 2016. four issues facing country,
fiscal policy, immigra he has ability and ability and gravitas and depth we need in american president. a purist, no. david: erick, you have to admit he is very good on the campaign trail. this guy is just wiping the floor with everybody else and when it comes down to, if it does, comes down to donald and hillary and donald focuses all of his fire towards hillary and last seven years of president obama's presidency, will you really just sit on the sidelines and clasp your hands and fold your hands and not endorse him? >> listen, i will vote for the liberal that supports universal and vote for hillary clinton i will vote for third party. david: there isn't a third party can it. >> there will be. david: who will it be?
will be mike bloomberg? >> certainly won't be. there will be republican candidate step forward to viable alternative to donald trump and hillary clinton. listen they don't reflect my values. i won't vote for a candidate that doesn't reflect my values. i don't care about their party. david: roger, is there any signh supported amnesty on immigration issue. what matters where you stand today. >> so did donald trump. >> today donald trump is the conservative standard-bearer and he is the most conservative candidate with crossover appeal. somebody that can appeal to blue-collar democrats. catholic democrats. african-americans. best last hope for this country. david: all right. gentlemen, we have to leave it at that.
please come back again. i would like you both to be on one more time. i don't think we finished with this subject. roger, air. >> eric: , appreciate it. melissa. melissa: marco rubio won second place in south carolina but the florida senator still hasn't won a single state. as gop narrows the pressure is on for rubio to start winning. here to weigh in, ashley pratt, evan siegfried, sum consulting president. thank you to both of you for joining us. how important is it that he gets out there and actually comes in first? because he has to start picking up some serious steam in terms of numbers and momentum? >> it is important but marco rubio is already getting the momentum. remember his particular lane, he has been going for more mainstream republican voters. that was very crowded with jeb bush, john kasich, chris christie. now that is starting to winnow out. you're seeing momentum shift towards marco rubio in this race to be the viable alternative to donald trump and republican party. food position to be in if you're marco rubio and ted cruz isn't
exactly in a great position. melissa: if you look what's left and who is still standing, ashley, all that would really help rubio seems like at this point if you went with evan's logic is if kasich gets out? >> right. we're seeing we'll see establishment coalesce behind marco rubio this is whole strategy that the establishment should unite behind one candidate. i don't know that it will help at this point. it might be too little too late situation in fact that donald trump really had commanding lead in new hampshire and now in south carolina. he did lose iowa. i don't see ted cruz being really viable at this point given fact he and trump will start splitting votes at one point and rubio will position himself as alternative to trump candidacy. i don't really know how things will shake out, it doesn't look all that good right now for the establishment to really get behind one candidate when they couldn't do it with jeb bush. melissa: right.
if you look at all numbers we showed you that went by, trying to focus on numbers as opposed to wishful thinking people want to happen -- >> that is the business person in you. melissa: there you go if ted cruz gets out, doesn't seem like he is going to, those votes certainly are not going to marco rubio. maybe some of them are but a lot of them will seem like they would be split. some would certainly go to donald trump because they were anger outsider candidates. you and evan talked about the lanes they were in. if all candidates came out and give all momentum to marco rubio that doesn't add up enough to beat donald trump. evan, i don't see how anyone but trump gets there at this point? >> right now you have to look who voters are. voters want to win in november and poll after poll shows that marco rubio has the best shot against hillary clinton. melissa: why isn't he winning right now? if that is the narrative, i hear what you're saying, makes a lost logical sense but that hasn't
worked so far that logic. >> you're basically arguing in order win a marathon you need to go out at sprinter's pace. marco rubio put out a food pace. he is -- good pace and he is in the lead pack and take over. >> pace is come in second in iowa, come in fifth in new hampshire, come in second. come on. melissa: got to start moving up at some point. if we're doing marathon analogy he is lagging, lagging, lagging. >> march 1st. >> i just think at this point he's shown he had momentum. then he lost it with a moment in new hampshire. then he comes back to south carolina and pulls off a second place finish but let's look what endorsements he had there. he should have easily won that state if he was strong enough to. he had nikki haley. he tim scott, he had trey gowdy. he had all the people come out in support of him week before the primary, yeah, it boosted him to second but not first. he needs a lot more momentum going forward. i will throw this out there, over $220 million have been
spent so far by the quote establishment to knock out donald trump and it hasn't worked yet. i don't really know what will end up happening but all i know it is not adding up. melissa: very interesting race and unlike anything we've seen in the recent past. thanks to both of you coming on. >> thank you. david: pacing yourself against donald trump doesn't seem to be winning strategy. melissa: no. david: just before north korea's latest nuclear bomb test the obama administration was engaged in secret talks they hoped would get the country to become more peaceful. clearly that plan backfired with the nuclear explosion after which u.s. tightened economic sanctions on the country so what went wrong. we turn to a former supreme allied commander at nato, author of "the accidental admiral." admiral sure looks like we got snookered again by north korea. what do you think? >> i think we look extremely flat-footed. let's face it north korea has been in this pattern a decade or
longer, which is bad behavior, drag the west in negotiating table, no improvement in behavior, get recessions, repeat cycle. we ought to stop falling for that again and again. david: does the administration have any idea of how to deal with a rogue nuclear nation, because to tell you the truth, there are a lot of parallels here with iran? >> well, as you look at what we've tried to do with north korea, obviously it is failing completely. nuclear detonation in january, long-range ballistic missile in february. david: right. >> when those two streams come together, north korea will be the most dangerous country in the world. so we need more robust and muscular plan using our allies in the region, japan, south korea, and all of our pacific partners to bring sanctions and we've got to drag china into this. road to pongyang runs through beijing.
david: quickly switching to iran, obviously iran is not nuclear yet. we made the deal with iran. they went ahead and tested those missiles anyway. they did stuff they said they weren't going to do. again this administration has a terrible track record in dealing with their enemies? >> i think the real problem with iran, as you know he, is as the sanctions come off, there is going to be a huge shower of money that is going to hit them, both from sanctions relief and from additional business. that money is going to be put to terrible purpose in the middle east in this emerging conflict between sunni and shia. david: they're even admitting that. iranians actually admit that. admiral, thank you very much for coming in. appreciate see you again. melissa. melissa: even the fbi director can't convince apple to unlock the san bernardino's killer's iphone. more on that coming up. the sky isn't the limit. record number of people are applying to space school. how many actually will come
melissa: pressure on apple is mounting. fbi director james comey says he owes it to the san bernanadino victims to get the company to unlock the shooter's iphone but tim cook says, quote, the data security of hundreds of millions of law-abiding people is at stake. joining us now for latest on all of this in this battle is our very own liz macdonald. liz, wow, this is never ending battle it seems now. >> let's go to the facts of what the fbi is asking for and what tim cook is saying. tim cookies saying that dragooning a private sector company doing private company's bidding, meaning creating brand new software to access encrypted phones would create a dangerous precedent. tim cook wants congress to act. he wants basically a commission, that is envisioned in a bill already in the homeland security
committee, that basically would have tech people, private sector people, privacy advocates coming up with some way, a narrow way to get at data that is encrypted in case of national security. that's one idea. watch what fbi director james comey is saying. he's saying, everybody take a deep breath. the world is not ending. we're not asking for a master key to unlock everybody's phone. in fact apple does not dispute the following, these are the facts. let's show it. apple doesn't dispute the fact that the software to break into the terrorist's iphone would remain in apple's custody. basically the fbi says they don't want software. don't want custody of it. they want to remotely access terrorist phone. shooter's employer owned the phone, county department in san bernardino that gave fbi and apple permission to go in.
apple let fbi access to shoot ear es icloud in prior cases. q&a came out, saying if we do write this software, basically there is relentless hacking and sigher attacks going on. there is a dininger that that software could be -- a danger that software could be hacked and released out into the will derers in. apple keeps access to the software that apple could get hillsborough countied. back to you, liz. melissa: they're denying backdoor doesn't already exist. a lot of cybersecurity experts don't buy that. they say it doesn't exist. >> they say they want access to one phone, that's it, the terrorist's. david: to your point the government claims they're not asking for apple to create a backdoor into their decryption process but experts like mcafee
don't buy it. >> it's a backdoor, whatever they want to call it. they can access any encrypted messages. david: that is scary. bill daly, we have head of security. is mcafee right? >> i think mcafee is absolutely right. the arguments come out in the last couple days from the government, they should be embarrassed. these are distinctions without a difference. if you write software that enables you to overcome auto erase feature, if you put in too many passwords gets to the same point as if you break the encryption of the government is trying to repackage an argument that doesn't work. david: hole on a second. let me give bill a chance. >> sure. david: isn't the fbi trying to make up for a huge technical failure here? this terrorist didn't own the phone of the phone was owned by the city of san bernanadino. their software they could have used to change the password. this was a failure of the fbi,
of law enforcement rather than apple, correct? >> well, there is some question as to what happened right after the phone was collected from farook or from the vehicle that farook owned, not sure exactly where it was, but i'll tell you, david, the issue is here, everyone is focused this being broad based issue of people trying to create a backdoor or deencrypting, that is not what it is. if you look at argument here, director comey stated here very clearly. it is narrow one. they want one phone, to have it is feature in order to, so many attempts -- hold on a second. david: well, i'm not so sure that's true. aren't they looking for more than getting into that one phone? don't they want apple to essentially create a new software? >> what they want -- david: hold on, this is for scott. go ahead, scott. >> listen, we should make no mistake about what is happening here. this is, it is just not fair to say that this is about one phone. that is what the government wants you to believe.
once you create that software, to overcome the auto erase feature by putting in too much passwords, regardless where the software is, it exists, it has been created. david: right. >> can be used in other instances. david: hold on a second, bill. this is what really scares apple. the fact that there are hundreds of prosecutors all over the united states who have an iphone, that might been used in commission of a crime. they want into that iphone. new york city police commissioner bill bratton was just on a talk show. new york city alone has 175 iphones that they couldn't unlock they want the to get into. bratton was asked, isn't that what you want for apple a general ability for law enforcement to get into all i phones they have right now, he said yes he. >> david, you're painting this case with one broad brush. david: i'm not doing it. that is brill bratton. he is the new york commissioner of police. >> i know bill. i have a great respect for bill.
