9:03 am
reach out from both sides? i know you're in the cruz camp. this is an attempt to get something going. >> it is. if is. it's a reach at effort to try and come closer. i had everybody check. i didn't get that call. i'm not sure who is mending fences with. i've talked to trump a couple of times. anyway, he's amazing guy. he said cancer endorsement? he said due at the soonest you can. stuart: if ted cruz is not the guy, which you, louis komar komar, your senior republicans, a very well-known guy. would you get behind trump? >> well, my plan was if he's the nominee come absolutely. he keeps: the most honest guy in the race a liar. he keeps calling the honest, honorable ted cruz a liar.
9:04 am
it is going to be tough. if he wants to mend fences and are glad he does it is a deal maker. that is going to have to stop using the word liar because it is a combination more of the speaker of the word liar than it is at the honorable ted cruz. he's got to stop that. that's just outrageous. stuart: are you with us for the whole hour? >> until your folks threw me off. i know this guy is ready to brown may ride out of here. stuart: they move quickly. thank you very much. the anti-draft protests over the weekend got ugly in arizona. demonstrators blocked traffic with their cars at the heart of thousands of people denying free speech basically for trump supporters. in new york city, every far left group on the planet turned out a couple hundred people who marched on trump tower. that was the weekend. kind of a great staff. what is on?
9:05 am
>> like a daily occurrence. today speaking to the public affairs committee for a packet they like to call it. we are to understand protests from jewish groups as well. some are going to boycott. others are going to get up and walk at the moment is introduced. the protests are focused on comments about women, immigrants, muslims, disabled and so on. trump calls themselves the most pro-israel candidate of all of them in the gop primary. he says all sorts of things to also speaking today. bernie sanders said no i'm not going to be. he's on the west coast fund-raising. >> donald trump would walk out. ashley: who will protest outside. you can see all of that. the paris terrorist arrested in belgium on friday. he had planned other attacks.
9:06 am
authorities found a large number of weapons. the colossus did this monday morning. colonel ralph peters. good to see you. this is europe's nightmare. this is a large terrorist cell embedded in europe and the muslim community. this is a real problem. >> the real problem is i've been there. it still is there. it will be there. the muslim community is not interested in coming forward. >> this paris terrorist was sheltered by his family and friends and eluded capture for four months despite an intense manhunt. >> you watch past a police station. >> he was given cover by vocals. extremely bad manners. >> it is. and they met with days, the fbi and others have gotten cooperation from life abiding -- law-abiding muslims. europe's are grave. it is a pernicious -- indeed it
9:07 am
is a cancer in the european societies where political correctness has come back to bite them like a crocodile. all the intelligence, all the myths about all human beings want the same thing. you know, not everybody wants to beat their daughter forgot. not all of them being spun the same thing. not all cultures are equal. we are finding although the europeans credit them with goodwill, and middle eastern islam is currently cracked this is simply not compatible with western civilization. stuart: hold on a second. turkey has done a deal. the deal is about migrants and letting them back to turkey or over europe. at the heart of the deal is living 78 alien turkish muslims be set free access to western europe 78 million by june of this year. that is a total dealbreaker.
9:08 am
>> the european union made a deal with to keep out of this. i want to stress i have great affection or turkey. not for president or to one who has got more journalists per capita in prison in china does who is rolling back the constitution. with a mean guy guy with an islamist agenda. my wife and i even took our honeymoon there. i've been there many times for more than 30 years. the tragedy here is it's the wrong place at the wrong time. everyone agenda is not a european agenda. his values are not compatible. even as somebody who loves turkey, turkey is not your. stuart: what is angela merkel going to do? will they too want a super activist or the quick arrival of tens of millions of turks and to western europe? i say it's a nonstarter.
9:09 am
>> the problem is turkey's economy which had been booming is now slipping towards recession. the tourist industry of course has been all but destroyed by the terrorist bombings. you've got internal chaos for his own political advantage for igniting the word occurs. absolutely brutal. he's also attacking our kurdish allies in syria. this guy is bad medicine. again can the europeans made a deal with the devil. stuart: you got it there. i know you're with us for a few more minutes. president obama as you well know is in cuba. take a look at this. hours before he arrived, protesters called the ladies in white were arrested. they march every single sunday. they were arrested and detained at usual. some thought cuban authorities would back off and respect president obama's visit. that did not happen. ralph, we got nothing from this deal. president obama may be building
9:10 am
his legacy, are we the people got nothing. >> you know, stuart, there's a point at which i just had to go to christian charity. i felt so sorry for obama. his presidency is so comprehensively failed that were it not for the abuse of dissidents i would give him this one. but his view of cuba is in real estate. he thought in the 1960s liberation. when he got off the plane i don't think he expected rowell castro. >> you should've been there. this is the president of the united states of america making the first visited and 80 odd years in their president doesn't show up. what kind of snob is bad? that is a snap and a half years the mac of course it is. consistent with this president, if you are an evil nation to be the leader for doing evil in the
9:11 am
world, this administration wants to be our friend. we are going to get your money. we are going to help you. we want more trade with you. stuart, you travel around the world and our friend have run out moderate muslim leaders. why are you helping the muslim brotherhood? they've been at with you for years. this is consistent with this administration. it is different for this administration if you do evil, this administration wants to be your friend. stuart: can we show that the ladies in white. they are being dragged away. they are surrounded by this. one of those protesters, a black lady was dragged away, taken to prison. she was told to strip that she didn't do it. this strip turn the presence of man and dragged her into a cell. that happened as the president was there. moving on. paul kogan awarded $150 million after the website posted video

9:17 am
judgment will withstand appellate review in that mac too. it is likely that hogan would get something. stuart: in principle he wins. >> as a practical matter it comes from a consortium of insurance carriers. he will get a lot of money. the issue is not is he a public figure is the tape a matter of public interest and it is not a matter of public interest unless he makes it a matter of public interest. so if someone says as part of their public persona i am celibate and never had sex with my next-door neighbors house and that person is a public figure, then the existence of the tape would be in the public interest and it would be protected. so by putting this into the public domain on their own,

where he didn't put it in the public domain, they have put in what the law caused a false light. the behavior occurred but they have no interest shining lie. stuart: the jury gave him $15 million more and he was asking for. the jury came down hard. >> the jury is not told what he's asking for. that might imply his lawyers did not ask for and not. it begins what is known as camille like their british backed down, the penalty phase. today the issue is what is gawker worth? the jury didn't have any information. how much of an additional punitive judgment will it take to punish for what it did? stuart: could've put them out of business? >> i doubt it will put them out of the -- stuart: they will be very >> all of them. all media will be careful about

islam as currently practiced is simply not compatible with western civilization. stuart: that was ralph peters talking about the migrant crisis in europe. remember, we start at 9 a.m. sharp every weekday morning. you can hear it, the bell is ringing, three seconds from now, the stock market will open, it's monday morning, we're ever so slightly lower probably at 12 points down, 16 points down, not a huge loss. at least not at the opening bell. joining us this morning, of course, ashley webster, liz macdonald and special guest congressman louie gohmert, and keith fitz from seattle, it's not raining at the moment. the dow is pretty close to its all-time high, 700 points away. keith, start with you, are we going to hit 18,000 this week or next week on the dow? >> i think it's going to be next week, stuart. we've got a little bit of adjustment to go and that gives me pause.
9:31 am
let volatility go, but next week i think we'll be there. stuart: why don't i bring in republican congressman louie gohmert who i'm sure is a bear on the stock market? >> not necessarily, but it goes up generally, but we're creating so much money. i was meeting with the fed some years back, how much money are we printing than we've printed, but there's so much more money in the system, oh, verbatim, we couldn't possibly print all the money we're creating. and where is that money going? it's going to the market. so, generally the market has always gone up, has big falls and then comes back eventually, but they-- they've been-- >> you're bearish. >> overall i'm bullish, but the bear is coming. stuart: you can't have it both ways. yes, i can. in the end, it will go up, but there's a bear between here and the bulls. stuart: listen to this one, china overnight, just had a new
9:32 am
move, making it easier for investors to borrow money so that they can buy stocks. keith fitz you know about this, what is that, good news or bad news for them or us? >> well, you've got to tread very carefully here, it's good news because debt unfortunately is how the world goes around these days to the congressman's point. we've created too much of it and that's got to bleed out of the system. in the interim. traders are going to love it and portfolios are going to love it and there's opportunities there. stuart: the big tech, what are they doing this year. facebook, by the way, that stock is up and up again today, 112 on facebook this morning. netflix down 11% this year, to virtually unchanged at the moment. 101 on netflix now, how about amazon, huge loss this year, this calendar year, 18% down off a buck 75 this morning, 550 on amazon. apple, a big event today. we're expecting them to

announce smaller and probably cheaper iphones, what's the story. ashley: a four inch screen and fast processor and better phone. the bottom line, what they're trying to do get into the mid tier market and appeal to those people in china, stu and those in india, the emerging markets where they believe there's a lot of potential and trying to turn around a decline in worldwide sales. instead of a brand new product, they're going cheaper. stuart: as i understand the average price for a smart phone worldwide is about $250. ashley: yeah. stuart: the average price for an iphone is $500 plus. ashley: a range of many in most countries ime countries. stuart: we want to find the price point of the iphone to find people with a cheaper model. ashley: it's interesting because you're cutting your margins and your profits aren't as good, that's a gamble. stuart: what do they want. and then there's twitter. did you know that it's ten
9:34 am
years old as of today? barron's magazine says its best days are behind it. ashley: yeah, basically because they say, unlike facebook, it just hasn't become mainstream. they understand it, they've got 320 million users, that's nothing to sniff at. celebrities love it, and in the news business they love it, but for the mainstream public not so much. stuart: i wonder if louie gohmert likes twitter. >> i have all kinds of great ideas, and i send them to my staff and they go, there's a double antoentendre and that's cute, but the triple is not. stuart: keith fitz, what do you make of this? barron's says that twitter's best days are behind it and the
9:35 am
stock is depressed. >> i've felt that way for a long time. more than a billion people tried twitter and left. that tells you something about the service. stuart: i think it does. how about fedex, barron's had a word to say about that one. it said that fedex stock could go up 15 to 20%. a 7 or 8% gain. >> a 12% pop on thursday, what they're saying is, the moment is over for fedex, the worry was that amazon was going to have its own delivery system. it turns out that amazon is possibly leasing 20 jets to move goods between the distribution centers not to customers so fedex dominates there and so does ups. >> that was true, everybody thought that fedex would introduce its own door-to-door. >> amazon. >> amazon would do their door-to-door. >> not yet. >> the key is if they'll send it to homeland security, the department of homeland security sends it wherever it wants to go, it's what they do.

9:37 am
there yet. stuart: you're like a guerilla. >> i'm sorry. stuart gorilla, but on the program-- >> an announcement, bill ackman will take a seat on its board of directors. the stock will pop. >> it didn't hit a new low, but then pop. wait a second, now up 3.7%, a moment ago, it was up 7%. this is the most volatile stock for this drug maker. you know they've had to obviously restate the numbers and interim chief executive. they're looking for a chief executive to succeed on the board now. the stock is down 55% this month and over the last 52 weeks, it's down 87. stuart: i'm going to call that a rolling crash, if i may. nicole, we'll take it, thank you indeed. president obama grabbing
9:38 am
headlines for going to cuba. let's not forget, the cubans owe americans $6 billion, for the stuff they stole in 1959. we never got repaid the money, i don't think we get much out of this visit to cuba at all and you say? >> obama, again, if you do evil, you ought to be excited when you're in the white house because he's going to try to help you. and so, yes, cuba's been doing evil and the point you made about this poor woman being dragged off, they're brutal, they're evil and we've got to help them. the people became free and get rid of this regime and what does obama want to do? he wants to give them guantanamo, not only not get paid back, he wants to violate the law, he doesn't have the power to do that. stuart: i think this solidifies the communist government. >> it does. stuart: i've got starwood and air bnb opening up in cuba liz: starwood is going to open
9:39 am
up three motels we haven't seen this since the cuban revolution in 60 years. the problem with doing business there, the laws change daily and no atm's and u.s. credit cards there yet. stuart: an american company can't just walk into cuba and set up a company and do business liz: right. it can only be a minority partner with the government. >> the military runs the hotels and car operators there. it's tough if the cuban government won't-- >> what's it going to do to starwood's stock. >> up 3%. >> short-term. >> and china buying starwood, they could have a foot hold. stuart: i head you in the background, what did you say? >> economic imperialism and they're going to make a move and no different than china, cuba will try to get the intellectual property and we'll pay for the redevelopment just
9:40 am
like we've paid for others. stuart: how about this one. a man in florida razed a car dealership after trying to buy a bmw withstood stamps. keith, this is for you. >> i am so stunned by this, stuart, on one hand we've got a political system where this is okay somehow. it's this poor individual going to buy a luxury individual living off the largess supposed to buy food and-- >> said on fox before, pointed out there was a guy in the grocery store line that was buying crab legs with food stamps. and the left wing nuts said this is ridiculous, you can't-- we've had flown up picture and there was a sign that says,
9:41 am
crab legs place, we take food stamps, this is the national extensienational-- natural extension. if you've been able to buy things, luxuries for lot of us, the bmw is the next extension. this goy thinks surely this is going to-- >> we have been open for 11 minutes and the dow jones industrial average this monday morning is down just 5 points. not a bad opening for the market, if you ask me after five weeks. and unexpected move from donald trump. he's meeting with top republican leaders in washington. trump reaching out to the g.o.p. establishment. how about that? and you don't see this every day. a mall-- frankly, i think this is really liz: awful. stuart: an easter bunny involved in a fist fight. i find it appalling. i don't know why we brought this to you, but we did liz: it's what happened when we take christ out of easter.
9:42 am
>> and now the bunny will have to crawl into the hole where he came from. stuart: disgraceful. back in a moment. audi pilotless vehicles have conquered highways, mountains, and racetracks. and now much of that same advanced technology is found in the new audi a4. with one notable difference... the all-new audi a4, with available traffic jam assist.

9:46 am
and dirty, his family, you should not do that. still on politics and donald trump. he's reportedly going to meet with two dozen center g.o.p. people. the strategist mercedes joins us this morning. is this what i think this might be, an attempt to get together with the establishment, a truce? am i-- i should get the buzzer for that. [buzzer] >> am i reading too much into this this? >> they don't use those type of words in texas, come on, so, i don't think you're reading too much. this is a smart move by donald trump and other candidates like senator ted cruz and governor governor john kasich. it's important to have because trump doesn't necessarily, although he is one of the outsiders, i call ted cruz the original outsider, but he is one of the outsiders. it's important for him, he
9:47 am
never really had said that he's going to separate himself totally from the establishment. he recognizes that the establishment have an incredibly important roll in this process, especially when you're coming down to the convention that could be contested. for donald trump, it's a matter of saying, look, i'm in the race and i'm the front runner and part of it is having to build the relationships, which he's going to need if in fact he's able to win the nomination and win the presidency. >> it's important primacies coming up tomorrow and next tuesday as well. and that's an important move. i should tell you also, mercedes that "the washington post" says that hillary is planning to go after donald trump. she's working out what her strategy is going to be. the quote from the post, they are now focused intently, this is the hillary people, they're focused intently on researching trump's business records and dissecting his economic policies, and compiling a long history of controversial pronouncements. mercedes, okay, they're doing
9:48 am
that, but they know surely that trump will come right back and hit them hard. >> that's right. well, i mean, they obviously-- the hillary camp obviously knows that, the fact that trump is going to hit them harder, but she's got to be on the offense and she's got to be ready to attack early on, you know, this is going to be a very different race if donald trump becomes the nominee because in fact, when you're entering into the general election, here job to expand that base and coalition into the minority community and what they're going to do, they're going to-- hope that their negative ad works, what they haven't worked in the primary going after donald trump, they've spent millions trying to derail his candidacy. that hasn't worked and i think that hillary is betting with negative ads go early on and own the narrative about donald trump and his business record, influence independent voters. stuart: i'm going to ask you
9:49 am
the same question and louie as well. as this monday morning as we start out a new week with primaries tomorrow and the following week, is donald trump on upswing after a weekend of violence and what say you first? >> i feel that he will win arizona. i think that cruz is utah country. and the caucus and endorsement of mike lee and romney came out and strong relationships there in utah so i think it's going to be a battle. it's critical for cruz to win at least utah so he can continue justifying the fact that-- >> how on earth am i going to keep louie gohmert to ten seconds. >> trump is where he is, but the mainstream media is sitting on massive opposition research that they will not use until he wins the nomination, and then it comes out. stuart: thank you for coming on the show. >> thank you. stuart: how about this, a new

>> a new religious liberty bill is being considered in the state of georgia and it might cost that state the super bowl. explain it, ash. ashley: the religious exemptions there was passed in the georgia legislature and awaiting the governor's signature, but basically protects opponents of same-sex marriage. the owner of the falcons, arthur blank, is now opposing the bill. why? because he's concerned that the nfl will not be picking atlanta to host the super bowl because they believe this bill is not inclusive of everyone in the community. in other words, if it's anti-gay, anti-lesbian, anti-transgender and that's why the owner of the atlanta falcons is saying, no, i don't support this bill. he's trying to protect himself so the city can get the super bowl. stuart: i got it. all right, a somewhat related, somewhat similar story corpus

christi texas over a giant cross they want to erect. they want to erect it on their property and it's paid for by them, the church. and welcome again, the final five minutes to the program. this is in texas. >> but it's very similar to the story in georgia. it goes back, jesus says you will suffer for my sake. for whatever reason, christians in america have lived in a bubble where we were not persecuted and we didn't suffer for jesus' sake, but it gives credibility to what jesus said, this hatred, this unexplainable bigotry against christians is really coming to the forefront in america now and it's raised its ugly head. that cross paid for with donations on private property and what the christian bigots are saying, we hate christianity so much, so offended by christianity that we don't believe any elected official should be able to be a christian and let anybody know
9:56 am
that they think it's a nice thing. stuart: they simply object to a large cross. >> not disabled, but you do, you represent these people so of course you go to the event. there is he nothing wrong with that, it's a good thing. stuart: the law may say, i don't know how it turns out. >> i'm sorry i used that word. stuart: you could say you are being insensitive to the atheists, reduce the size of the cross. >> no, no, sensitivity is on the part of the atheists, their hatred for christians overcomes any fairness, any sense of really equality, they hate them so bad they want-- they're prejudice against elected officials, religious beliefs and they don't believe elected officials should have it. it's getting back to what jesus said, it's finally getting back to america. stuart: you're a favorite guest. >> i love it, you talk so
9:57 am
pretty. it's amazing. stuart: i wish they could have your accents. i think that hillary clinton is about to come out before she makes her remarks at the jewish group. have we got the video? can we see her. maria: she's about to approach the podium, i believe she's going to attack donald trump. i think that's what she's going to do as she approaches and addresses the american israel committee. she is expected to attack donald trump. there she's entering the room, meeting and greeting, so to speak, walking towards the podium. >> she's going to say watch what i say, forget about what i do. don't think about what we're doing to you. stuart: she's getting a very warm reception, walking straight down there. >> of course, of course. stuart: we're going to be monitoring this, of course and listening exactly what she has to say and you'll be following this along with us. the dow has turned positive,
9:58 am
and we'll take it, 17-6 for the dow industrials as hillary takes the podium. the second hour of "varney & company" is about to be-- bet you can't wait for this.
9:59 am
10:00 am
>> you're looking live, washington d.c., hillary clinton addressing the american israel public affairs committee. listen in briefly, please. >> i've worked with and learned from some of israel's great leaders. although i don't think that yitzhak rabin forgave me for banishing him to the white house balcony when he wanted to smoke. now i'm here as a presidential candidate and i know-- >> okay, that's hillary clinton aipac. she's just begun her remarks and we'll see what happens with
10:01 am
hillary and aipac. existing home sales. ashley: annualized 5.08 million, stu, not a great number. down 7%. stuart: okay. jason meister is with us, a go-to guy on the numbers. 5.08 million existing home sales, annualized basis. doesn't look good good to me. >> i would caution us not to put too much credibility to one month's number, but there's been a development boom based on free money and in cities like new york city, miami, san francisco, we've had significant development and there's inventory that's going to be climbing and we're going to have a lot of that inventory. in new york city, we have 15,000 units that are going to be coming on-line to the market between now and 2017. at today's pace, about $5,000
10:02 am
units will be sold. that means we'll have five years of inventory to burn off. stuart: whoa, that's a lot. okay. jason, i'm going to end it there. not real big on this number, 5.08 million, existing homes sold on annualized basis, not a great number. jason, thank you very much. i want to go back to hillary clinton addressing the aipa krchc conference. >> abandon our responsibilities or cede the mantle of leadership for global peace and security to anyone else. as we gather here three evolving threats, iran continues aggression, a rising tide of extremism across a wide arc of instability, and the growing effort to delegitimate israel on the world stage are
10:03 am
converging to make the u.s.-israel alliance more indispensible than ever. [applause] we have to combat all of these trends with even more intense security and diplomatic cooperation. the united states and israel must be closer than ever, stronger than ever and more determined than ever to prevail against our common adversary and to advance our shared values. values. [applaus [applause]. this is especially true at a time when israel faces brutal terrorist stabbings, shootings, and vehicle attacks at home. parents worry about letting their children walk down the street. many fa li-- families livein
10:04 am
fear. a few weeks ago, a young american veteran and west point graduate taylor force was murdered by a palestinian terrorist near the port. these attacks must end immediately and-- palestinian leaders need to stop inciting violence, stop celebrating terrorists and martyrs and stop paying rewards to their families. [applaus [applause] >> because we understand the threats israel faces.
10:05 am
we know we can never take for granted the strength of our alliance or the success of our efforts. today americans and israelis face momentous choices that will shape the future of our relationship and of both our nations. the first choice is this: are we prepared to take the u.s.-israel alliance to the next level? this relationship has always been stronger and deeper than the headlines might lead you to believe. our work together to develop the iron dome saved many israelis lives when hamas rockets began to fly. [applause] i saw its effectiveness firsthand in 2012 when i worked with prime
10:06 am
minister netanyahu to negotiate a cease-fire in gaza and if i'm fortunate enough to be elected president, the united states will reaffirm, we have a strong and enduring national interest in israel's security. [applause] and we will never allow israel's adversaries to think a wedge can be driven between us. [applaus [applause] >> and we have differences, at any friends do, we will work to resolve them quickly and respectfully. we will also be clear that the united states-- >> hillary clinton addressing aipac in washington d.c. you saw briefly the beginning of her remarks, we will go on to criticize, we understand,
10:07 am
sharply donald trump. once she does that, we'll take you back to hillary clinton in d.c. i should tell you that donald trump is meeting today in washington with nearly two dozen senior republicans. ashley, i don't know who these republicans are, but it looks to me like an attempt to mend fences between the establishment and trump? >> this is interesting, could they be farther apart right now? all we're told the establishment is doing everything it can to stop trump and everything they tried up to this point hasn't worked although we're seeing the chaos surrounding him seems to grow with the protest. but can the establishment get behind trump? we've been told up to this point, no. stuart: it seems like a move in the right direction from trump's point of view. ashley: the g.o.p. has been worried about losing the both the house and the senate control, there's concern about that. stuart: i'm sure there is. our next guest is actually, i didn't know this, but he's a registered democrat. however, in a recent article
10:08 am
says through the process of elimination, he will now support donald trump for president. michael goodwin is with us. a, i didn't know you were a democrat. >> i don't talk about it until i-- . [laughter] >> no, you don't. and b, you now can see supporting trump because all of the other republican candidates and the two democrats, you just doesn't find them palatable for the presidency, is that your story? >> absolutely, it's a process of elimination, it's close to choosing time. i haven't committed to trump. what i'm saying in the column is i'm getting more comfortable and here is why. because of the 7 1/2 million people who voted for him are the people who feel left out and they feel abandoned by both parties and trump is speaking to them. these are the people, who fought the wars, who worked in the factories, who teach school and coach little league. they've built a middle class culture, they've been abandoned by the democrats and by the republicans.
10:09 am
trump who on paper is the least likely to speak for them clearly does and the response i got to the column, stuart, from these people. it's overwhelming how they are praying, they say trump is our last hope to save america. stuart: these are democrats? >> they're not ideological. they don't really identify. they may register in one party or another. fundamentally they're independent of the ideologies of the parties, they simply feel that the democrats cater only to the left, the republicans cater only to big business, and nobody cares about the working and middle class. stuart: i take your point. are you in any way put off by trump's tone, some of the things he said about women, minorities, the way he approaches public speaking, and approaches his audience. does that put you off at-- what i'm trying to get at is this, when you vote for the president of the united states of america, you'll see him the
10:10 am
next four years every single day. it's a personal vote. are you comfortable voting personally for donald trump? >> not completely. that's why i'm not all the way. as i say in the column, he's weird and erattic and his attacks on megyn kelly among others are reprehensible and diminish him. his lack of policy and specificity. the complexities of the issues he hasn't touched, all of these are troublesome. on the other hand when you look the at things are how things are going in this country, who does have an answer? hillary clinton i think is the most dishonest person in public life. i think the republican voters the only one still standing is cruz among the republican candidates, a field of 17, it's cruz and trump and kasich by a little. and so i think the choices now are few so you've got to, i think, figure out who can represent what i think is the most important segment of the country that's been abandoned. stuart: michael goodwin, registered democrat thinking
10:11 am
about going for trump. there's a headline. michael, thanks for joining us. president obama is in cuba today. i think he is legacy building basically. his trip so far marked by violent protests, including demonstrations by these women we're about to show you. this is a group known as the ladies in white. they march every sunday to demand improved human rights. if you look at this closely, you'll see the people dressed in white, they're being surrounded in a very hostile fashion. it's palm sunday, they're carrying palms. one of the women, i don't know if you can see the video of her in particular, but one of the women was arrested and taken off to prison, stripped in the presence of men, dragged naked into a cell, that's reported by the wall street journal this morning. the wall street journal's mary kissel is joining us. what do you make of this. >> when you thought the obama administration couldn't go any lower or the president himself
10:12 am
couldn't go any lower, then we have the trip to cuba. stuart, this trip validates and empowers the regime that has effectively enslaved its people, denied them their freedoms, religious freedom, freedom of the press, freedom of speech. stuart: in what way does it empower and keep-- >> because it validates, not only does it validate the regime by giving them the face of the president physically going to cuba, but we're also opening the doors for u.s. businesses to do business with the regime. stuart, let's not forget, cuba does business with north korea, it harbors u.s. fugitives, it enslaves its people. the people that president obama boasted were going to be released because of this great deal, more than half of them, rearrested and most tellingly, arrivals in the united states of cubaen refugees have gone through the roof. 80% up last year. if this was such a great deal
10:13 am
and great place to live, why are these people doing whatever they can to get out. stuart: did we get anything? >> no. stuart: did we get anything that america got-- . the only thing that we got were crony deals between u.s. businesses some on television today talking about their investment with the regime, and this president got pr for his leftist base. that's all we got and the cuban people are the ones who are going to suffer the most. stuart: mary, thank you very much indeed, put it nicely. we've got the dow industrials down 36 points, okay? we opened a little bit lower, we moved to the positive side and now down 36 points, 17-5 on the dow industrials. anti-trump protests over the weekend and dozens of rabbis planning to protest trump's speech to one of the largest groups. we'll talk to one of those rabbis next. don't let dust and allergies get between you
10:14 am
and life's beautiful moments. with flonase allergy relief, they wont. most allergy pills only control one inflammatory substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. flonase changes everything.

10:16 am
they say you shouldn't spoil your kids. but your grandkids? how about front row seats to the best show in town? and that is why you invest. the best returns aren't just measured in dollars. td ameritrade®. >> all right. look at this, it's the poor numbers on the housing market
10:17 am
that did this. we're down 37, 38 points. we had been on the upside. annual rate selling existing homes, about 5 million a year, down from the last set of numbers. the market took that badly, down a few points on that housing news. valeant pharmaceuticals, a winner, announcing big ackman will take a seat on its board. this is a stock down 86% since last march, down 86% in a year and bouncing back nearly 12% today because ackman is going to be on the board. hillary clinton is now addressing the americanen israel public affairs committee and just went after donald trump and said that israel's security is not negotiatable. that's an indirect reference to donald trump. our next guest is one of dozens of rabbis planning to boycott the trump speech which comes later. this is the aipac people, the
10:18 am
nation's largest pro israel group. welcome to the program. >> thanks for having me. stuart: are you going to walk out when he starts his speech or you're just not going to go in there in the first place? >> i think we're going to see a little bit of both. we have some rabbis, canters, jewish community leaders and members of aipac who are going to absent his talk. and some once he starts will silently get up and walk out. all of us will study outside the antidote to what mr. trump has been, we're going to look at common decency. stuart: what is it you don't like, temporary ban of muslims, statements on women or tone? this is a jewish group, is there something that donald trump said about jewish people tore israel that you don't like? >> well, aipac is not so much a
10:19 am
jewish group as a pro israel lobby. as a jew myself, someone doesn't have to say disparaging things about jews for me to be offended. mr. trump has made as a cornerstone of his campaign, us versus them. he believes in order to win we have to defeat them, whoever is other than us. as a person of faith, i don't accept that, i believe that god created everybody in god's image and that we have responsible to show respect and dignity to all people so just because he may or may not have said something offensive to me specifically as a jew doesn't mean i don't take issue with his campaign. stuart: am i an islamaphobe if i don't want muslims to come to america that would kill us.
10:20 am
>> if you say all muslims want to kill us, if you say all mexicans are rapists or murderers, which he did not say, but if you say those things, when you make sweeping generallizatio generallizations, yes, you're an islamphobe. >> to say that there are muslims to threaten our safety, but he's making large statements about muslims, women, the press, as a cornerstone of his campaign and that's not going that we need to accept. stuart: thank you, rabbi, we appreciate you being with us. >> thank you. stuart: sir, pope francis, you could say he's bringing politics in his palm sunday homily, comparing indifference to the migrant crisis to the betrayal and crucifixion of jesus. more varney after this. you both have a

10:25 am
the quote, jesus also suffered on his own skin difference because no one wanted to take on the responsibility for his destiny. he adds this, i'm thinking of so many other people, so many marginized people, so many asylum seekers, so many refugees, so many don't want to take on their destiny. father jonathan morrison, europe, many say, is being invaded by muslims from north africa. and the pope's response is we should take responsible for them, take them in and house them. is that what he's saying? >> you know, he has chosen to basically speak about the urging crisis of those trying to get in. you know? and just imagine for a second jesus looking at these people, you know, if they're in desperation. not all of them, but those who are in desperation, those who are on the boats and falling off, who are dying on their way. the pope is saying, when there was a crisis right there, you
10:26 am
can't get into policy issues of how many, what percentage we can take in, how many-- you have to take care of the urgency. it doesn't mean, in my opinion, that all governments should just open their borders and say anybody can get in. the pope is saying there's an urgent refugee crisis and jesus would take in the urgent, the desperate. stuart: father, i think you're right. we often hear the question, what would jesus do? what would jesus say and i can't imagine jesus seeing the migrant boats arriving and i can't imagine he would say send them back. i can't imagine that, but at the same time-- >> at the same time, exactly. i think that pope francis would agree with so many other popes and catholic leaders saying a sovereign state, however, has not only the right, but an obligation to regulate immigration levels at sustainable levels and secondly
10:27 am
to protect, maybe first to protect its citizens against those trying to do harm. so there's got to be a balance. the pope is always going to leave that to other people to figure it out, name politicians and say there's an urgent crisis. stuart: the european union has just done a deal with turkey. the deal is about my grants and would allow 78 million turkish muslims to go to europe without a visa, just show up and you're in. now you're starting to talk a numbers game. this is by june. these people would have access by june, visa free. it's a numbers game, it's an invasion, it's a massive number of people, and muslims, not the faith of western europe, they would come to europe. that's a threat. that's a direct threat. >> as you know well, stuart, in the european union, people can go freely between countries,
10:28 am
you can walk from one country to the other without passing security. if turkey is part of that, of course, i don't think we should say just because they're muslims, they can't get in. and that's what is the danger, what is the danger. stuart: that's what everybody is saying. >> in turkey the violence is up. stuart: you can't avoid this, you can't say they're just migrants and-- they're not, they're largely muslims coming to an already divided society, divided between christians, judeo-christian ethics and morals and-- >> that's why we need not only prudent politicians, wise politicians to be able to balance human rights issues, they're not going to stop you because you're this color skin or that color skin or this or that religion. at the same time why is it prudent to say we're going to make decisions for our country. stuart: welcome, it's not easter monday, it's holy week and-- next monday would be--
10:29 am
yesterday was palm sunday. stuart: i know that, i went to church. are we done. >> we're done. stuart: thank you, father. we'll be back shortly. here's the plan. you want a family and a career, but most of the time you feel like you're trying to wrangle a hurricane. the rest of the time, they're asleep. then one day, hr schedules a meeting with you out of the blue. and it's the worst 19 minutes of your career. but you don't sweat it because you and your advisor have prepared for this. and when the best offer means you're moving to the middle of nowhere, the boys say they hate the idea. but you pretend it's not so bad. and years later at thanksgiving, when one of them says what he's thankful for most, is this house, you realize you didn't plan for any of this you wouldn't have done it any other way. with the right financial partner, progress is possible. you're an at&t small business expert? sure am. my staff could use your help staying in touch with customers. at&t can help you stay connected. ....

speech to tolerate clinton, as of now, just finished her remarks. she just went after donald trump saying israel's security is not negotiable. you have to stand up to a bully when you see one. hillary clinton just left the podium in washington, d.c. now, this. the economist says a donald trump presidency is a major threat to the global economy.
10:33 am
a trump presidency ranks number six in terms of global threats. our next guest helped put this assessment together. the risk manager. robert powell is his name. what are you laughing at? >> he ranks right up in the top 10. you think that donald trump will be a terrible threat. really? >> it is about impact on the global economy. the identity of the president. a spillover effect for the rest of the world. you have a gentleman talking about trade wars. building a wall with mexico. right down. that will have a spillover
10:34 am
effect. stuart: so bad that it ranks right up in the top 10 threats of the global economy. >> it is sad. it does occur at the moment. you would need it on multiple attacks in multiple countries. >> cold on a second. you mean to tell me that the threat to the global economy, it is no greater, no greater than donald trump who may or may not start friction with china and mexico. >> what is the global threat of them launching multiple threats? disrupting the global economy geared we have not had anything on that scale since 9/11. >> after all, he is way ahead in the republican primary.
10:35 am
[laughter] >> there is a no other site to this. we will put in place some significant tax cuts for corporations and individuals. i think that that would galvanize american private enterprise. leaving the rest of the world out of this global economic mess >> i do not think that mister trump is alone in this. you can talk about saving. the health budget. >> the economist -- the economist magazine no longer believes that tax cut, corporate and individual would stimulate corporate enterprise. >> will leave me, going back to 1843.

pushing for free trade. it was the foundation of the organization. a currency manipulator is, in our opinion, a threat. >> 2012. i canceled it because you actually endorsed barack obama for another term in office. >> you work for the of common myth magazine. what were you thinking? endorsing barack obama for a second term. he has nothing to do with private enterprise. >> i cannot give the opinion of the economist magazine.

[laughter] let's move along. meanwhile, chelsea clinton. she now says that her mom hillary wants to cover millions of illegals under obamacare. this is what she said at a campaign event. so important to extend the affordable care act to people living and working here regardless of immigration status. regardless of citizen status.
10:38 am
>> already the people pay taxes in this country and they are so under duress. the factor into obamacare. potentially 70% of u.s. households get more in the way of benefits then they pay into the system. that is upside down. it has been upside down for a very long time. that is why these guys feel safe. d.c. spending like vegas drunks. [laughter] >> the last one was the catchphrase right now. >> how about that. look at who else is here, ladies and gentlemen. former miss america. [laughter] in 1994, hillary clinton explicitly said, no, we will not cover illegals.
10:39 am
now, according to chelsea, hillary wants to cover them with obamacare. you say what. >> this shows how far bernie sanders has pushed her to the left. you know, chelsea clinton, she was the one that came out and mischaracterized bernie sanders planned. this is the second time. hillary has yet to hear from her. you ask what kind of behavior are we in fantasizing. come here and you will be able to get free healthcare. we want to draw people here because it is a line of opportunity. you want to come here and see the benefits. not just, get free healthcare. you have to pay into the system. $50 billion per year. that is what this position would cost.
10:40 am
>> federal subsidies. >> right. they would have to buy a plant just like everyone else. they would be in the lower income brackets where you would be getting the lower subsidies. >> not yet taken off his microphone. you would just love to give free healthcare to everybody. >> it is a uk system after all. i cannot particularly common on this. >> a threat to the global economy. >> isis. trump. >> it is the quality of health care that you get geared i have a foundation that raises money to help people.
10:41 am
we get so many applications from the uk and canada. the lines for this kind of treatment is just so long. it is not just mental healthcare. it is all kinds of surgeries. >> i would like to give this maximum publicity. obama benefits. anybody, one and all. i think that that should be a political issue in this election. >> worse than isis or trump. i am kidding. [laughter] they aren't not doing well. >> s-uppercase-letter. >> all right, everybody. down fraction that leave.
10:42 am
no big impact on what chelsea had to say about obamacare. it is monday morning. we are not really going out far thus far this monday morning. free speech under attack. protesters blocked the highway leading to the rally. i want to know what happened to those. back in a moment. >> i think that it is very unfair that he's really, in many cases, professionally and six road testers can put cars on a road blocking thousands of great americans from coming to a speech. nobody says anything about that. ♪

hi...i'm pamela yellen. you may have read my bestselling book l years, .. -kept secrets to help you plan for your retirement is the home equity conversion mortgage. it's a line of credit for homeowners age 62 or older. and it's offered by a company you can trust- one reverse mortgage, call one reverse mortgage now to get the details. their licensed experts will tell you if you're eligible, show you the line of credit amount you qualify for, and will send you a free information kit. the home equity conversion mortgage line of credit is even better than a traditional line of credit...
11:29 am
because you can make payments if you'd like, but no monthly mortgage payments are required; this program is government insured; and the money available to you increases every year. for example, if your 100,000 dollar line of credit remains untouched, it could increase to 300,000 or more, years later. so the sooner you start your line of credit, the more money you could have access to in the future. i've educated thousands of financial planners -- many are including the home equity conversion line of credit in their client's retirement plans. while this product is good if you need financial help now, it's even better if you want to strengthen your retirement plan for later. it offers a wide range of flexibility for every homeowner age 62 or older. i believe this is a smart financial tool and i recommend that every homeowner who qualifies consider getting one now. call one reverse mortgage

11:31 am
are now telling people on the outside this is what is happening. they are making no secret that james comey is coming -- that's the fbi chief -- coming under tremendous pressure not to recommend charges. and this is what they're telling people. and i'll tell you, stuart, this is a cover-up that's pretty amazing, when the staff is out there. and it's not just that, you know -- by the way, the story is not hard to get, i'm just going to tell you. if you know anybody be remotely associated with the fbi, if you know any fbi agent anywhere, they will tell you the staff right now, the staffers, the career guys, the guys that do the leg work, believe that there is sufficient evidence that hillary clinton in the handling of her e-mails and the use of the private server to obtain and send what's known as classified stuff even if it's not marked -- stuart: illegal. >> they don't believe her story. remember, her story centers around the fact that there was no headings on it. but everybody in government
11:32 am
knows not every classified e-mail has a heading on it. stuart: but you could understand the political pressure on james comey not to recommend prosecution because you would be trying to prosecute the standing democrat candidate for the president of the united states. i can understand the pressure. but if he doesn't and the staff have made out a good case that it is illegal, there'll be, excuse my language, hell to pay within the fbi. >> and by the way, this may hurt coemy's career going -- comey's career going forward. >> what if he quits? >> that is what the staff is saying. they believe there's a good chance if they put too much pressure on him, he's going to quit. read my column in the post today, because it kind of lays it out. if you look at comey's record in the bush administration, look at the cases he brought against wall street, and you will see the obstruction cases that he
11:33 am
brought had a far less level of factual intent than this. look at what he brought against martha stewart, look what he brought against frank quatrone. that case was overturned. the bar was so much less, that's just another piece of evidence -- stuart: one last thing. do you have a time frame on this? some idea whether he prosecutes or not? >> no. no one knows. here's the thing, the evidence is all pointing it's heating up. remember, he put this guy that was handling her e-mail server, pagliano, whatever his name is, that kid now -- stuart: he's got immunity. >> the signs are that it's heating up rather than slowing down. stuart: charlie gasparino, everyone, thank you very much, indeed. quickly, look at the big board, we're up 21 points. this is a go-nowhere market thus far today. now, our next guest says he will never be able to support donald trump. former congressman ron paul is with us, a favorite guest. ron, welcome back to the program.
11:34 am
the audience loves you. you know that, don't you? >> stuart, nice to be with you again. [laughter] stuart: now, i introduced you by saying you're the guy that can never support donald trump, no matter what. but i put it to you, you're an outsider, donald trump is very much an outsider. can't you get together with your fellow outsider, donald trump, on anything? >> see, i don't believe trump is that much of an outsider, you know? personality wise and everything he says, he wants to be an outsider because he's shrewd and he's smart, he knows how to appeal to the people who are unhappy. but when it comes to, say, troops in the middle east, he's not an outsider, he's more hawker than the -- hawkish than the insiders. he wants 30,000 troops over there. he's not ready to close down the fed and these sorts of things that many of the libertarians are in favor of and the outsiders really want. so i would say he's done a very good job in fooling a lot of people that he's completely on the outside.
11:35 am
but he's been able to take two positions on every issue. i think he's going to have a meeting today, and a speech. stuart: yep, he is. >> and most of the time when he does that, he takes two positions. maybe today he won't. but if you look back, i bet he'll say something today that contradicts something he said a week or two ago. stuart: is ted cruz your guy? >> no. no, i think, matter of fact, he's more honest with his militarism. trump is a militaristic person, but he's a little more cautious. he appeals, he's able to appeal to the peace segment as well as the warmongering section. but cruz is strictly send in the troops and carpet bomb anybody who sneezes at us. no, he's, he's easy to figure out, and he's up front about his militarism. stuart: but someone who feels like you feel has only a libertarian candidate to back, no republican candidate to support, and i'm sure you've obviously herald this before --
11:36 am
heard this before, but a libertarian candidate is not going to win. it's a protest vote. and in voting for a libertarian, essentially, you're giving a vote to hillary clinton. you've heard this before. [laughter] >> but if we have either one of, you know, republican or democratic, the people lose. nobody wins on this because they continue the same process of big government and spending and militarism and lack of privacy. it's just different flavors of it, different management style. so we always win if we present our case and we invite people in to start thinking about what true liberty is all about. we're in for the long term, and we also realize that elections aren't all that important, you know? it takes a long time -- stuart: but, ron, look, if hillary clinton wins, i'm going to be paying more tax, you're going to be paying more tax, there's going to be much more government, there's going to be much more giveaways. that's not a win for the people, that's a flat out loss. >> no, but it's a loss if that
11:37 am
happens, but, you know, republicans and democrats -- republicans are in charge of the senate and the house, and you automatically say, oh, they're worthless, they won't do anything. how can she raise taxes without the republicans in the house and the senate? so it takes more than hillary. every time she says something doesn't mean that it's going to happen. and i think that she's, she is, she has very, you know, a whole lot of bad ideas, but i think she's really very inept. i think republicans in the house and senate will curtail her. i don't think there will be any curtailing of donald trump as president because, you know, hee controls the media, he controls everybody, and so i think he's going to be the one that will resort to using executive orders much more so than obama ever used them. stuart: okay, that's interesting. ron, you're always interesting. no matter what, you are interesting. [laughter] that's why the audience loves you, i know they do. ron paul, everyone. thanks so much. >> thank you, stuart. stuart: last week on this show
11:38 am
we spoke with the mayor of miami beach. he's a hillary clinton supporter, his name is phillip levine. he made a statement suggesting trump is not a billionaire. listen. >> the one thing we all know is donald's not a billionaire. so let's see it at last. stuart: wait a minute, wait a minute. one thing we all know -- >> well, on. we all know -- come on. we all know in financial services whether it's the vodka company, the airline -- stuart: show me the proof. >> stuart, i think what happens is -- stuart: excuse me! excuse me! you are doing a harry reid, and you have no right to do that. >> dad's money -- stuart: show me records. >> put him over the edge. [laughter] stuart: sorry. lost my temper. [laughter] now, levine did the same thing that senator harry reid did to mitt romney while romney was running for the presidency in 2012. he made a statement about money without being able to back it up with real proof. deliberately.
11:39 am
come on in, penny lee, who was an adviser to senator lee -- sorry, to senator back in the day. all right, penny, you and i always smile about this, but i think you'll agree with me, phillip levine was doing exactly what your old boss, harry reid, did. that is, saying something about a presidential candidate, saying something negative about them, about their money, not being able to back it up, just throwing it out there. deliberately lying. that's what happened, isn't it? >> well, i think, stuart, even you have to admit the irony is very rich. i mean, we're talking about this, about donald trump. i mean, donald trump was the epitome of someone who threw a false allegation out against then-senator obama about the fact that he was born in kenya, was not born in the united states. i mean, the irony is incredibly rich. stuart: so you will agree with me then that phillip levine had absolutely no proof whatsoever? >> we don't know.
11:40 am
we don't know, stuart. stuart: he won't tell us. >> and you know what? there is an easy solution. all donald has to do is release his tax returns. that is a simple, easy way to resolve all these issues. stuart: you shouldn't in a presidential election, any election, you shouldn't lie about your opponent. you really shouldn't -- >> maybe he knows information that you and i don't know. stuart: so what is -- reveal it. >> yes. absolutely phillip should come forward and reveal what his source is. but donald has an easy solution to put this in the background, release your taxes. stuart: mr. levine will not do that. >> don't you have to wonder why donald trump won't release his own tax returns? >> stuart: no, it's the oh way around. -- other way around. >> he wants everybody to know all about him. stuart: i don't think you should be doing it. your old boss, senator reid, i don't think he should have stood on the floor of the u.s. senate and lied. i don't think he should have done that. [laughter] >> stewart, you and i know, we've been around that -- stuart: and phillip levine is wrong to do what he is doing
11:41 am
now. you know, i want a democrat to have some honesty here and say, you know, we really shouldn't be doing this stuff. >> i think false allegations are wrong, and people should not put them forward, but there's an easy way for donald trump to resolve it once and for all. simply release his taxes. and then if people do throw this out there, we have the evidence full and simple of why it was false. stuart: i'd like to see mr. levine's evidence. he made the statement, he should come up with it just like senator reid should have done it too. you know, penny, we enjoy this. i know you do. a little sparring on monday morning, what's wrong with that? [laughter] penny lee, everyone, thanks for being with us. >> thanks, stuart. stuart: trump protesters block a highway in arizona. question for judge napolitano, can those people be charged with a felony? i appreciate you coming by. absolutely. the market's been pretty volatile lately. there is a lot at stake here, you know? look jim, we've been planning

stuart: protesters in arizona this weekend, you can see 'em, stopped traffic on a major
11:46 am
highway to protest donald trump. the backup went for miles and miles and miles, thousands of people could not get to the trump rally. judge napolitano is here. legally, what can happen to those people who deliberately blocked traffic and interfered with an election campaign and interfered with freedom of speech? >> it is not protected speech, and it's not protected expressive behavior. so if they stood there with placards and tried to slow traffic down, dump trump, that's probably protected. but putting vehicles in the middle of the roadway, you just showed that piece, absolutely preventing movement, it's a crime of some sort. i don't know what the terminology would be in arizona. yes, it's absolutely a crime. if the traffic backed up to another state, then you have a bridgegate thing like in new jersey. when you block the movement of commerce from one state to another, it is a federal crime, the minimum penalty of which is five years. clearly a felony.
11:47 am
if they charge them with disorderly conduct, it's probably 30 days in jail. if you have no prior, they'll give you a deferred prosecution, you walk away scot-free. i don't know what's going to happen with these folks. i think the local law enforcement officer is sheriff joe arpaio. i'm sure he's going to push for as aggressive a prosecution as possible. stuart: but he's not the prosecutor, he's just a sheriff. >> correct. look, here's the idea, all speech is protected, but this is not speech. this is, this is stopping the lawful movement of vehicles. what about people who weren't going to trump, who were going to a hospital or some other event which they had a right to go to on a public roadway? stuart: well said. all right, what about the freedom of speech when donald trump at a rally says -- i'm not sure the exact words -- beat the crap out of him when they're referring to a demonstrator who's disrupting his rally? what can he say that is protected? >> here's the rule. all innocuous speech is absolutely protected, and all speech is innocuous when there
11:48 am
is time for more speech to neutralize it. so if he says beat the crap out of him and somebody beats him immediately, he can be prosecuted. stuart: okay. >> if he says beat the crap out of him and somebody beats him 15, 20 minutes later, his speech is protected. [laughter] well, here's the thing -- stuart: i'm not sure how to take that. >> i'll tell you why, because the measurement here is time. is there time for more speech? because the theory the remty for bad -- remedy for bad speech is not prosecution, it's more speech. stuart: but politically, it is okay for the left to say, look at him, he's encouraging violence. he says beat the crap out of a demonstrator. this is hate speech. >> it is legally acceptable for the left to say that just as it's legally acceptable for him to say they're fanatics, they're trying to drown me out, they're criminals. all of that is protected speech. the first amendment tolerates the fact that people will hate what they hear and express their hatred. and and so it is the job of the
11:49 am
police to protect the right of the speaker to speak, the right of the audience to hear and the right of the protester to protest because protest speech is itself protected speech. not blocking traffic, but shouting at him. stuart: you know what i'm going to say -- >> what are your going to say?

smaller and cheaper smartphone. jo ling kent live in cupertino. what do we know so far, jo ling kent? >> reporter: stuart, we know that ceo tim cook will be taking the stage in about an hour and ten minutes right behind me, and it's during the middle of this ongoing fbi battle. we expect two new products to come out of this, analysts expect a new iphone 6se, perhaps, which would actually be a smaller iphone who are looking to refresh who haven't upgraded yet to the iphone 6 or 6s. of course, those sales very important, as you know, because we may have the first year-over-year decline in sales this quarter. we also expect to get a new ipad pro, a new, refreshed version of the tablet that is struggling, but all of this happens as tim cook prepares for a hearing tomorrow in riverside, california, about the san bernardino iphone 5c that was used before the killing of 14 people and injuring 22. i want to show you a quick poll

stuart: atheists in corpus christi, texas, filing a lawsuit against a church because it put up a giant cross. on the church's own property. paid for by the church. pastor jeffers is with us. pastor, it's great to have you back. i'm exploding on this one because, to me, this is all about the power of the atheists using the legal system to beat up christians. what say you? >> exactly, stuart. this is a bigotry toward christianity that's being bolstered by a perversion of the first amendment of the constitution. look, the first amendment simply says congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of a religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. our framers said congress can't establish a state church and
11:56 am
force people to worship in it. it has nothing to say about ten commandment displays or prayers at high school graduations or giant crosses on church property. look, stuart, the first amendment is about the freedom of religious expression -- stuart: yes, of course. >> -- it's not about the freedom from the ree liberties expression of other people. stuart: i believe the atheists are arguing because it's such a huge cross, they're being influenced by it, everybody will be influenced by it, and they are so sensitive to this that they want -- i think they want it taken down or not erected at all. would they compromise with a smaller cross which fewer people could see? [laughter] i'm not making a joke here, i'm just worried these people might win. >> well, look, you're asking the wrong person because we have a 95-foot church at -- cross at our church right in the heart of dallas. so i'm not for lowering the cross at all. people always say what about atheists who are offended by a cross or what about the muslim
11:57 am
who's offended by a display of the star of david? as somebody well said, the framers of the constitution could not have cared less about the hurt feelings of other people. they wanted to guarantee the freedom of religion, and that's what the first amendment is all about. stuart: i have the feeling that america has had enough of this and really wants to see a more muscular christianity and its approach to those who challenge it. last 20 seconds to you, robert. >> i do. and, look, justice antonin scalia six weeks before he died said there is nothing in the constitution that demands that a court choose non-religion over religion. america has been blessed because we've honored god, and if we want god's continued blessing upon america, we need to continue to honor god. stuart: you know why you're a popular guest on this program? because you can say it all in a couple of sentences and go right to the heart of the matter, and you do it so well, sir. [laughter] we appreciate it. robert jeffers, thanks, sir. >> thanks. thank you, stewart. stuart: more "varney" after this.
