9:00 am
because you want it so much. maria: because you love what you do. tony, congratulationson the book. tony robbins, out today. and kevin and dagen, thank you. that's it for us, i'll see you tomorrow. "varney & company" starts now, stuart, over to you. stuart: thank you very much. what an outrage, christians targeted and slaughtered during easter. good morning, everyone. it happened in pakistan. islamic terror strikes a park crowded with children. the islamists say they deliberate deliberately targeted christians. in response, president obama administration doesn't makes any mention. and secretary kerry says it's the republican that are an embarrassment. a small gain on the opening bell. the dow is not that short of 18,000 and today you'll see some big name stocks hit record highs. wait for it.
9:01 am
look at that bernie surge. in the three caucuses over the weekend, seven out of ten democrats voted for a socialist, but he's still not likely to be the nominee. here we go, it's a big new week, never a small week, is it? "varney & company" is about to begin. ♪ i wish we didn't have to start with this, but we're going to. terror, a taliban group carried out a suicide attack in the northeastern part of pakistan, killing more than 70 people, injuring 300 more. officials say the attack targeted christians celebrating easter. ash, the latest. ashley: at least 70 dead, over 300 injured. and as you said at the top of the show, this was deliberately picking on a park popular with christians during the easester celebration ironically, and i say ironically, most killed
9:02 am
were muslims and 14 christians. and the splinter group who pledged support, says we want after as many christians as we could. stuart: it was a deliberate targeting of christians. ashley: without doubt. stuart: by the way, no mention of targeting christians or islamic terror from the obama administration. former presidential candidate mike huckabee is now, mike, governor, if you were the president, what would your reaction have been? >> outrage, anger, frustration. and also, we would be very clear that you can't deny that there is a targeted attack against christians and by the way, a targeted attack against moderate muslims. one of the things that's going on in pakistan right now is part of the uprising that we're seeing in the streets not only in lahore, but also in is isl
9:03 am
islamabad. there w there was riots in the streets and the result is that this is unacceptable to the radicals. they want absolute strict adherence. what do they do? they blow up a bunch of innocent group in a park they're not good at it. their target was christians, but most the people they killed were muslims. stuart: the president appeared to double down on his stance on immigration, roll that tape. >> as we move forward this this fight, we have to wield another weapon alongside our air strikes, our military and our counterterrorism work and our diplomacy and that's the power of our example. our openness to refugees fleeing ice sill's violence our determination to win the balances against a distorted view of young muslims to their
9:04 am
cost-- >> governor, he almost spelled it out and he wants to admit more refugees. >> that worked brilliantly in europe. this is a president that wants us to look more like europe, more bombings, more suicide attacks. do we not learn anything from brussels and paris? for god's sake, the fact that europe is overrun by muslim refugees and the result is disastrous not only attacks on women-- >> what you've just side qualifies you as a bigot. if you place-- ments you know what i'd rather be a live-- >> i'm sorry, but you are a bigot. i mean, you will be labeled a bigot for saying what you just said. >> yeah, you know, maybe so, stuart, but better a live bigot than a dead idiot who doesn't understand and continually naively says that oh, we can just open these borders and if we're so nice, they'll be nice to us.
9:05 am
stuart, this is the reason this president is lost and continuing to lose the battle against radical islam because he thinks if we're nice, and that if we let them in, and more of them and show a wonderful example, and maybe put a chocolate on their pillows, maybe they'll be nice to us. they're not going to be nice to us. they want to kill us and he still doesn't understand that and i'm just utterly frustrated that he wants to go the way of europe. what a disaster. stuart: i just wish we did not have to start easter monday's program on two issues like this, but those are the issues and governor, we thank you for being with us. governor huckabee, thank you. >> thanks, stuart. stuart: donald trump's response to the president as message on migrants, trump says the president is-- it's disgraceful, that's what he said, he said that early this morning, we'll play you the full sound bite about a half hour from now. i want to get to the latest on
9:06 am
brussels. another subject i wish we didn't have to cover. belgium authorities releasing moving images. you saw the still shot and now the moving image, man in the hat. more than a dozen raids, and what are the suspects? >> some have been taken in and released, but this terror network clearly is much wider and deeper than first thought. that, by the way, that man is identified by local media as fais faisal, a free-lance video, doing free-lance report and a migrant rights campaigner and here we see him casually, what strikes me how casually they're strolling. stuart: he is the handler. >> and they had five suitcases and could only get three in the car and upset they had to leave two behind and those we know
9:07 am
now were filled from explosives. stuart: still on the subject we wish we didn't have to cover. secretary john kerry defending the president's response to the brussels attacks and calling the republican's response embarrassing. roll the tape. >> every leader i meet, they ask about what is happening in america, they cannot believe it. i think it is fair to say that they're shocked, they don't know where it's taking the united states of america. it upsets people's sense of equilibrium about our steadiness and reliability and to some degree, some of the questions they're posed to me, it's clear to me what's happening is an embarrassment to our country. stuart: mary kissel is here. calm me down, mary. >> it's incredible, isn't it? so, for secretary john kerry, nothing that the obama administration did in the last seven years, our withdrawal from the world in the global
9:08 am
disorder that has ensued is his responsibilitior this president's responsibility. that's an outrageous statement by the secretary of state. the same secretary of state that backed the iran deal, gave 150 billion to the sponsor of terror. backed putin into a chemical weapons deal and didn't get the all of the chemical weapons out. talking about the palestinian conflict while isis was in iraq. he's trying to distract attention from the obama presidency and withdrawal from the world has meant for our security and the security of our allies. ashley: he did take james taylor to the charlie hebdo attack and you've got a friend. >> and he thinks about climate change. stuart: you didn't quite calm me down. i'm going to be calm now because many' going to get to the markets coming off the
9:09 am
first losing week in six weeks. that was last week. we're going to open a little higher this week, not much, but a little higher. we're 500 points away from 18k. how about that? too early to say we're on 18k watch, but we are. oil is just uppnder $40 a barre. donald trump says we should not be buying saudi oil until they begin to fight isis. the price of average 2.03 nationwide and listen to this, ash, i'm weeping. ashley: i know you are. stuart: it jumped 29 cents in the last month. how about that? >> 17 to 19 cents. stuart: i'm trying to get in a good mood and-- and cheapest state in the land is new jersey, a buck 80.
9:10 am
game stop is opening lower, lower sales for game consoles, not good for their business. and the ceo of game stop on this program about a half hour from now and now this, bernie sanders is sweeping the west, won alaska, washington state, hawaii, please roll the tape. >> i will not deny for one second that we still remain the underdogs, but we have come a long, long way. you will have to concede, in the last ten months. we do have a path toward victory. stuart: that would be true, america has come a long, long way. art laffer is with us. did you ever think we'd come as far as this? you ever thought you'd see the day when seven out of ten democrats in those states over the weekend voted for an acclaimed socialist? did you ever see that? >> these were caucuses, at least two were caucuses. we've seen that, eugene, and
9:11 am
gus hall, ralph nader, and upton sinclair, whenever you get a rotten economy like we've had, you've had splinter groups. stuart: with a it a minute, art. come op, i know you're trying to put hee in a good mood. it's not working, telling you now. >> lets me try harder. bernie sanders is no splinter group. >> yes, he is. stuart: no, he's not. he's not a splinter group. >> he's not going to be the nominee and, yes, he is really is splinter group. there's a group that really appeals for radical change when we have an economy as bad as we've had for ten years, 15 years, and it's just going to continue until we get a new president in, better economics, good prosperity, and then we're going to see it. stuart: put me in a good mood. we had a socialist professor of economics late last week, he said if bernie sanders is the president and he puts in place
9:12 am
his massive spending plan, we'll have growth m america's economy of 5% and you say? >> i say this is nonsense, but let me just say that we had a professor at stanford who was one of my favorite professors, paul boren who wrote a book, an american marxist, in fact, i know the model pretty well and the guy is just plain wrong. a poor country can't spend itself into wealth and it doesn't happen and they're following john lennon's song mantel, imagine , imagine people sharing the world. bernie sanders you've got to think of as a splinter. >> you were wonderful until the
9:13 am
last center. bernie sanders is attracting students and young people and crystal said it takes a ph.d. to not understand the obvious. and the socialist professor is proof. stuart: thank you, art laffer, everybody. he's back in our good books. [laughter] next, still on awful subject, christianity under attack. and ralph peters outraged that the white house is not taking a stand. ralph peters is next. and right wing protesters water con noned by police. europe in my opinion, very close to communal fighting. more varney in a moment.
9:14 am
at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like grandkids equals free tech support. oh, look at you, so great to see you! none of this works. come on in. you can't breathed. through your nose. suddenly, you're a mouthbreather. well, just put on a breathe right strip which instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than cold medicine alone. shut your mouth and say goodnight mouthbreathers. breathe right
9:15 am
9:16 am
>> oh, look at this, new images from brussels showing right wing protesters, they were carrying anti-isis and
9:17 am
anti-terror signs, but they were at the memorial in brussels where the attack happened. they were met by riot police, water canons. joining us now, ralph peters. there's something going on in europe and i want to get a grip on it. i think that communal fighting is very close. an example of it, it almost broke out right there. >> if you're talking about widespread communal fighting? no, absolutely not. i disagree with you. if you're talking about repeated incidents like we saw in brussels, yes, because the bureaucrats and the politicians in europe are not responding to the legitimate concerns of the people and therefore, you get the extremists exploiting that. this is push level stuff, early brown shirts. i don't worry about the near term, mid terms, you may be right. stuart: i would suggest maybe belgium is breaking up, split between the flems and the
9:18 am
walloons and population relatively hostile to the country. i would say belgium is on the verge of breaking up. >> the flemings and the wall loons, they throw mayonnaise at each other, they are certainly deep splits. the problem in europe, i worry less about those black shirt thugs in brussels, the football hooligans can tell you about them. stuart: i can. >> i worry much more about the german elections and coming wave of elections because the inactivity and unwillingness of europe's leaders to recognize the extent and daily impact of the problem is driving the growth of the far right. stuart: and then you've got president obama suggesting that we can lead by example and let more muslim refugees into the
9:19 am
country. again, it seems to me that the elites leadership is just not responding to the valid concerns of the people. >> well, what outrages me is he's anxious to let in muslim refugees, we do have many alternatives, many muslim countries could take them in, but he will not do anything about the christian refugees. we just saw the horrible bombing in lahore. even on easter, he could not bring himself to say the word christian and the christian refugees don't have other places to go, even in europe if there are going to be asylum centers, they're attacked by the violent muslims and harassed. my god, this administration was bullied and utterly forced into admitting that christians suffered genocide and diluted it and everyone is suffering. the christians are the persecuted party. stuart: appreciate it. >> thank you, lou. stuart: he called me lou, made

9:25 am
well. >> unbelievable. stuart: that's interesting denial, isn't it? mary kissel might i put it to you the winners here are the democrats? >> you're absolutely right. that's the big take away from the story and it could help ted cruz. we've seen a lot of late deciders in recent elections going to cruz. wisconsin is an important state and also early polls out of california. as for donald trump, he wants this kind of exchange because it takes attention away from his policies. and what his policies would mean for our economy and for security. stuart: he became a grandfather. ashley: number eight. stuart: number eight and it's a little boy. i've got nine. look at this, the dow jones average is getting close to 18,000 again. our question, will it happen this week or next week? there's a loaded question. i'm told we've got fancy graphics if we hit 18,000. facebook's virtual reality

oculus hits the market today. it promises to change how we see things on the internet. facebook stock close to an all-time high. we'll be back. 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.

shape. maybe it does pose howard kurtz is here. this is a speech which the president is going to make this evening as an award ceremony i believe. he's going to call it the media saying it is this partisanship in your smiling. >> president has been in the sun for a long time. there is more partisanship. there are more people who seek out websites, for example that agree with their point of view. but where he kind of misses the point is he has the biggest megaphone in the world and his sometimes into fault into blaming the media, sometimes he specifically named fox news race had trouble getting things done. stuart: i would say the vast majority of the media, the majority of the media sees his point of view, support the president, is mildly left of center. where my going on?
10:05 am
elect barack obama hasn't gotten much done more particularly he seems to be completely failing when it comes to terrorism and isis. it doesn't matter. a president has to lead and he can't plan cheerleaders to get it done cares if living on the international page. now we've been talking about some people following the twitter line. twitter is a place where lots of opinions explode and that's the nice thing about it. >> it seems to be partially negative opinion. secretary of state john kerry is defending the president's response to the belgian terror attacks and he is calling the republicans embarrassing. i just want to roll that tape. >> every leader amy come as they ask about what is happening. they cannot leave it. i think it is fair to say that they are shocked.
10:06 am
they don't know where it's taking united states of america has said that says people sense of equilibrium some about her steadiness and reliability and to some degree i must say to you, and some of the questions the way they opposed it clear what is happening is an embarrassment to our country. stuart: an embarrassment to our country. >> john kerry, the 2004 candidate is taking a whack at donald trump's. that's what happens in the election season and a half since two echo hillary clinton has talked about for some world leaders have expressed concerns to her about the campaign and about trump. unless there is a diplomat, a little more as a democrat. stuart: synonym for president obama. in for hillary clinton who helps to succeed. stuart: while you're in york, you grazed the show from d.c., but now you're in the big apple sitting next to me. >> i couldn't resist the chance
10:07 am
to sit next to you. also i'm not number later. >> number one media guide. i call that show ambush being [laughter] see later, howard. thank you to bernie sanders sleep in the west over the weekend. he has one leg in alaska, washington state and hawaii. polls show hillary clinton is the candidate who could eat trump. how about that. what he think of this? first of all, deal with bernie sanders. now it's a search and a half. seven out of 10 democrats voted in those three states wanted a socialist. but that all about? >> it's a big deal. it's a really big deal. but it's estimated loudly as various energy elsewhere besides hillary clinton. it's really important.
10:08 am
hillary clinton is going to be the candidate. there's no question about that. what i'm seeing right now it's hillary clinton can't draw momentum. she can't get energy behind her. she's a candidate whose messaging as we can afford to let this happen. it's a very negative term. she sang at donald trump is the candidate finger in her messaging is not positive. whether we like it or not, donald trump is trying to country and hope out of paper lava had hosted a long time. people are misunderstanding what people hear from donald trump and bernie sanders as well. stuart: trounces the guy who's bringing people to the republican party on that side of the ledger. hillary clinton is not bringing in new people to the democratic at all. and yet she is supposedly the one who could eat trump. >> writenow if you look at the polls that's correct. anyone who dismisses trump against hillary clinton does so at their own peril, very much like when donald trump entered
10:09 am
the polls back in june, everybody dismissed them out of pocket. he entered the polls, low digits. once he started from the jeb bush was like but dismisses guide and look what happened to jeb bush. as soon as donald trump has the other candidate, low-energy chat, little marco, mining tab. and then he gets his supporters energized and whether it are mentioned above come out. where there's energy that dates. and there is energy behind donald trump any people don't understand. what kinds of things like john kerry talking about this is a disgrace, people are embarrassed. don't be embarrassed if the american people. understand that the behind it. hillary clinton does understand that. she's discussed by this people. these are the american people that she should be trying to win over. stuart: it seems that the democrats nominate hillary and
10:10 am
odds are are that they will, they elect a candidate who's not inspired to come out in any great number to go. that is a problem that democrats i would've thought. that is to the thing is if you look at her story, there's two messages appeared fighting for you and i'm with her. when i talk to supporters i said in these families are, what does that mean? stuart: fair question. i'm not sure. >> people don't know what it is. tree into a much move on briefly. a personal item about donald trump yet he's got a new family matter. his daughter i thought ashley: number three for her. his eighth-grade chance. theodore james. there is a picture there. maybe a future president. teddy james. liz: how do you break like it? stuart: i'm not a brick.

10:17 am
>> you may be going too far, but chaos is what is happening. other causes from russia and ukraine to the wave of over a million refugees from syria because of ice is in the syrian government. what is happening in their own streets and chris like brussels and paris is really cooking europeans. some go to the ripe ncc. that puts pressure on governments. that antagonize not minorities, most of them are not violent and lead to a downward spiral. we are very worried. stuart: would he make a president obama in his radio address on saturday morning just to be complete by example, but more into the united state. but that a reasonably good government policy. but he make of this pavement? >> first of all, that's not politically doable right now so it's dead on arrival. secondly, where he has a point as america has a different way of integrating people from the islamic world of africa or asia
10:18 am
or anyplace else. i've lived in europe for nine years. their entire culture and societies not set up to assimilate other people. we have seen that time and time again and that's one of the problems. this is not something a news conference by obama is going to change. stuart: you're very familiar with the situation. i wonder if you could answer a question often asked in may. that is why do we care if europe is breaking up and is in chaos, what does it mean to us in america? please answer that question? >> certainly 100 years of his reign two world wars and tens of thousands of nuclear weapons around the world indicate the rest of the world. in europe we have in the e.u., in nato and other places like switzerland is total of 600 million people twice their population with a gdp, gross national economic addict of about the same size and an equal sized military force without

10:33 am
people is to go into the convention. a lot of money is being put in. including in the state of wisconsin right now. stuart: the latest polls that i have seen show that trump is still in the lead in wisconsin. >> the one that i have seen, again, a lot of money coming in telling people to vote for cruz. to be able to stop trump. very close between trump and cruz. very much of a split in wisconsin. a very strong republican suburban area. very negative towards trial. wirral areas. they tend to be more supportive of cruz. stuart: do you think the

campus. some students said the message made them scared. caused them pain. all right. your group held a rally in support of free speech over the weekend. i want to know. how many students were prepared to turn out. >> we had roughly 200 students show up over the course of the day & our petition. being very ambiguous about the policies. considered harassment. we've think that the policy is absolutely crazy. people are over react into this. stuart: well said. the function of the university is for intelligent people to rub up against each other and exchange ideas and opinions. what emery is trying to do the
10:37 am
exact opposite. >> that is absolutely right. it needs to be a debate ground. conflict bad ideas. people who are protesting tromping thing we cannot have this because it is too offensive or objectionable is not the way to go for it. if you want to talk about hard ideas, and, trump is a hard idea to talk about. should not be getting university funding to celebrate the conclusion in spite of the fact that there are high day ideas in front of us. >> those youngsters, they do not encounter other people's opinions. i do not think that those people are ready for university. that would be my opinion.

. give them that consistency and love. that they have not had in the past. stuart: would you comment on the same thing? your feelings for the child. >> a need a family. it is basically very simple. our role is to love that child. to be her daddy. to be her mommy. to not have any other distractions that would prohibit it from now. she needs to be cared for and loved. that is exactly what we did. >> some negative american blood in her family tree and this
11:20 am
could cause a problem later. >> we knew that. i think what to remember is, you know, the same answer to why we do foster care as well. these children do not know that they have native american blood did they do not know that they are foster child. they need love in they need consistency. stuart: suddenly, out of the blue, someone said, look, the parents, the biological parents want that child back and it will happen. was this a sudden revelation for you? >> there are no biological parents involved here. the biological parents are both out of the picture. for many years now. lexi was new to a second cousin in utah.

11:33 am
thriving nation today rather than pathetic basket cases. even obama has to bail out. train to great effect in. you are an economist at his position is that spend a lot of government money that's just as good as spending a lot of private sector money. what is the fault in the argument? >> the money that shows the growth is learning. it is something real. it is not something that can be achieved by a close look economy of government power. this is what -- this is the big problem of our economy today that the money has been divorced from any stable source of value. it is defined by currency trading which is now 73 times
11:34 am
bigger than all the trading of goods and services in the world put together. it has created this close look economy where main street is shoved aside where they have 62% of all the new money created by the fed going to washington, going back to the government already. most of the other money -- two thirds of the rest of the money goes to a few smart -- a few large corporations that use it not to invest in new products and goods and services and innovation, but to buy in their own shares. stuart: the federal reserve a lot of the money goes to the government. 60% goes to the government. the rest of it goes largely to large corporations which don't
11:35 am
use it to actually grow the economy or grow their business. they buy back their own stock. when we do about it? >> i believe the new economy is emerging on the internet beginning with the big coin bought chain and ingenious ways to use gold to reestablish a currency that is a global currency that can actually initiate a new boom and capitalism rather than this horrible infatuation with socialism on american campuses. stuart: music to our ears that horrible infatuation with socialism on our campus is. >> if the disease. they are all strictly overt by a pale cast of green to. stuart: pretty good one-liners. you got any more?

program. you can come back, okay? stay there for now. serious subject. i'm going to move on to the attack on christians in hand. within 70 people dead after an easter bombing and a part. robert jeffers is at best, the pastor of first baptist church, the mega-church in dallas, texas. the obama administration has yet to even talk about christians or muslims. they've not excepted it was the targeting of christian. look, i'm getting frustrated by this because i wanted more must go response to this worldwide attack on christians and i'm not getting it from the administration. >> you are not going to get it from this administration and here is why comes to her. for the acknowledgment to radical islamic about to make that admission.
11:38 am
i don't care whether we're talking about paris or brussels or pakistan or san bernardino. all of these attacks are one common denominator and that if they were not committed by jewish or hindus or episcopalians. they were committed by radical islamic terrorist. it time for us to acknowledge that we are never going to defeat an enemy we are unwilling to acknowledge. stuart: it seems like at the president believes he names islamic terror comment if he goes out there and says it is islam doing this, most responsible for this terror common thing he enhances the idea that it's a religious war. is that true? >> well, that's what he says. it seems like every time we have one of these attacks, the president sends his favorite role of defender in chief of islam. look, we know most muslims are not radical terrorists. their 1.5 million muslims in the
11:39 am
world. most conservative estimate a 5% are radicalized. the steward, that a 75 million radical islamic terrorists in the world. that is why we need to be on guard against this. i don't think it's any accident that the two top contenders for the gop candidacy, donald trump and ted cruz are the ones who have proposed the most radical means that dealing with and protecting our country from radical islamic terrorists. whether it turned proposing a temporary ban on muslim immigrants for ted cruz: for extra scrutiny of muslims. you know, the moderates and liberals in the gop are howling in protest against his proposals, but the majority of republicans are embracing them because they want to keep the nation safe. stuart: russia committed christians in the united states do? we can save up for ted cruz or donald trump but outside the political arena as christian,
11:40 am
what should we do? >> verse about we should be praying. we should pray for brothers and sisters in christ around the world who are being attacked. i don't believe it's isolated. i believe these attacks are coming to america as well. i can't divorce god has given us the privilege of choosing our leaders and i believe we have the obligation to choose those who will carry out the biblical mandate of government and that is to protect the innocent. stuart: robert jeffreys commit thank you for joining us and we are obliged. before a marathon -- >> this is why it's important to call this genocide. if the u.n. does decide to ride, christians being flattered or victims in the family could get refugees that is and come here to the united states. stuart: the secretary of state

was dragged kicking and screaming. but now he's saying the republicans are an embarrassment to america. it's a contradiction i would've thought. record voter turnout for republicans. and some democrats do not want to vote for hillary instead of casting about for the gop. a guest who can tell us why after this.

11:46 am
did, and then. direct care at franklin and marshall. you have numbers on how many democrats which side to vote specifically for donald trump. i think you've got the numbers from pennsylvania. what's the numbers? >> let's start with the aggregate for us. hundred 25,000 registered voters centers date that have gone from third-party democrat to republican. 70,000 now have gone the other way meeting republican to democrat, whether independent or third-party. that's a huge number. 170,000 people have done that. comment voter registration makes it easy. he cannot break this, sit in your living room, living room, get in line and change are voting. here is what we have found out. this is mostly from reporting from reporters in the field.
11:47 am
a substantial number of democrats have switched their party to do what we call strategic voting. that's a nice word for saying they will vote for donald trump because they think it would be easier for hillary clinton to feed him a november rate. we have another group of people switching to support a variety of candidates on the republican party. remember, this started i was 17 candidates down to three. people are switching to go i'm a democrat but i want to vote for cruz. i'm an independent one above for rubio. the largest -- stuart: i'm trying to cut through the clutter. one of the big stories we've been following as the number of democrats who switched parties because they want to vote for donald trump. that accounts for the search and trump voters. you are saying it is not quite
11:48 am
as big a number switching is typically to donald trump. they might also be switching to other candidates who's since been not doubt where they could be switching to vote for trump because hillary could be trumped easily. it's not a big switch as we thought. >> yeah, that day. there's another angle if you look at different counties, all the reporting that came out i was sick. this he's winning white blue-collar workers incomes 45, 30,000 or less. high school educations. if you look at counties in pennsylvania with a fair number of voters they seem to be proportionately high. translation, they are switching to vote for trump in my humble judgment. stuart: i'm sorry. did you see something similar in massachusetts? switching to the republicans to vote for trial.
11:49 am
>> i didn't actually look at that. i read the general reports about 20,000 people searching at one point in the names. the other point i would make and harris were as likely to go for sabotage voting. philadelphia suburbs, allentown and bethlehem, that is where the moderate republicans are who been voting democratic in lots of big elections like president, governor, u.s. senate. those changes are likely to beat hillary or bernie sanders away from the republican party. that is another trend. this is much more complicated and diverse than i think most of the reporting we're getting would indicate. stuart: terry, that is a fair point to make you i am just trying to get rid of the clutter. a lot of people think trump is attracting a lot of voters in the democrat side of the aisle. that's not necessarily to be taken at face value.
11:50 am
last word to you, sir. a good many of them are. the problem is it's hard to tell unless you somehow getting into these individual interviews. looking at the geography of it by demographics meaning where they live and where the preponderance of the demographics are, you can make generalizations that are largely true. stuart: you can come again and tell us what you are finding this individual interviews. thanks very much. appreciate it. cap, a concealable gun looks just like a smartphone and it folds up, put it in your pocket. you'll be alerted by this thing later on this year. a man who is behind shall we say, concealable gun, in a moment.

i had gotten my concealed carry permit and was carrying my pistol with the requisite jacket over the top and somehow or another got caught on the pistol and a young boy saw me in the middle of a restaurant and shouted out or if i'd really been excited laid-back guy has a god and the whole restaurant of course looked at me. there's got to be some other way to do this and that's how it came about. stuart: how many bullets doesn't fire? >> this unit is a double is a double-barreled with two shelves be at some point in the future we hope to develop a semi automatic but that's a little ways off. stuart: what is the caliber of the bullet that fires? >> this one is a 380. we've had requests for the calibers, but we want to see how it performed before we deal with those weird stuart: that will stop you. that is a large bullet. i've got a say. >> yes, i believe so as well. stuart: how much are you going to charge for this? >> retail will be $395.
