tv   The Intelligence Report With Trish Regan  FOX Business  January 10, 2017 2:00pm-3:01pm EST

2:00 pm
as connell mcshane reminded us, that was not the subject of which they're both in agreement that if the president-elect and robert f. kennedy jr., there is good reason for skepticism there. all right, trish regan, take it. trish: thank you very much, neil cavuto. breaking today, donald trump's pick for attorney general jeff sessions targeted by the left on capitol hill. protesters aiming to derail the confirmation hearings over and over and over again. watch. [inaudible] . trish: okay, events today on
2:01 pm
capitol hill, welcome everyone to "the intelligence report," i'm trish regan. senator jeff sessions kicking off a contentious week of president-elect trump's nominees, today senator sessions a strong supporter of tough immigration policies making it clear he will not compromise the safety of americans. that's why like president-elect donald trump he is in favor of extreme vetting. there is nuance to it. watch? >> many people do have religious views that are inimitable to the united states, i did not want a resolution that would be a factor in the vetting process before someone is admitted. i have no belief and do not support the idea that muslims as a religious group should be denied admission to the united states. trish: okay, it's a rather nuanced position, right? but the left is desperately trying to paint him as a racist
2:02 pm
and xenophobe. are they going to sink him? joining me mercedes schlapp and caprice kafaro. all allegations continue to surface from the left about racism. allegations he has denied and, of course, they're trying to paint him into a corner trying to show him as a xenophobe as opposed to trying to protect the borders of this country. what do you suppose is going to come out of all this? is this noise or are they going to get anywhere? >> i expect senator sessions will be the next attorney general of the united states. he has the republican votes on his side. what the democrats are doing are obviously buying time by allowing the 30 hours of debate or so that they're allowed to do through procedural mechanisms but what we have here is the fact that the democrats and more so not all
2:03 pm
of them because you have senator joe manchin from west virginia who came out in favor of jeff sessions, susan collins came out in favor of jeff sessions, liberal groups are trying to ping him as a racist. i think they are going to be unsuccessful. he's made it clear in his positions he's had several civil rights and african-american leaders coming out talking about jeff sessions's character, he's well liked in the senate, part of the senate family. i don't expect him to have a problem despite the distractions coming from the liberal organizations trying to push him or state a position he's not a racist. trish: liberal senators as well. cory booker from new jersey, let's listen to him. he's going to be testifying tomorrow against sessions. watch cory booker. >> i'm breaking a pretty long senate tradition by actually being a sitting senator testifying tomorrow against another sitting senator, so please understand i think these
2:04 pm
are extraordinary times and call for extraordinary measures. trish: okay, so capri, in all fairness, everybody is entitled to voice their own view in all of this. at what point is it a tipping point where it's a smear campaign, bringing up allegations he's over and over again denied. >> let's talk first of all about my stanford colleague, senator cory booker who is a stanford alum. i have great respect for him. but at the same time, i think we need to remember he is breaking with precedent to be a sitting senator to testify against a nominee. the advise and consent process is incredibly important. one that united states senators need to take seriously and one they have an obligation to fulfill. at the same time, you know, we're really at a point where there is, i think, a point where individuals, as they're trying to go through the
2:05 pm
vetting process, we need to stick to facts rather than theatrics. trish: and do you think that corey book ser more on the theatrical side because it serves political purpose right now? >> yes, yes, absolutely. what cory booker is trying to do here is set himself up for 2020. that is a little too much. there are significant, stark contrasts between senator jeff sessions and his voting record and at the same time, you know, there is an obligation for these united states senators to engage and to bring these issues out and to address what the department of justice has jurisdiction over. but when you testify, that is a little too much, in my opinion. trish: he's got cory booker against him, and the liberals can point to booker as their hero. a lot of liberals aren't expected to vote against him. in fact, as i look at something that democratic senator chris
2:06 pm
kuhn -- we have more protests, multiple protests going on today. looks like a few more. let's listen in and watch what's going on. . trish: you can see they're holding a sign sessions is wrong for america. looks like three of them got escorted out there. mercedes, part of this, let's not forget is designed for the media. they know we're covering these hearings right now and they want the attention, you've got a lot of liberal groups that don't feel they're getting the support they want and need from democratic members of the senate right now. the expectation is as you said he will be the attorney general of the united states. they got make some noise? >> absolutely. we talk about the theatrics in
2:07 pm
the case of the corey booker, he actually in a recent event basically praised jeff sessions and now he's coming out and speaking against him. on another note. the fact that jeff sessions has bipartisan accomplishments. he's worked closely with the late senator ted kennedy, with senator dick durbin. these are democrats. and he's worked on issues like criminal justice reform, and you can just tell with senator sessions, he's well prepared, he is aggressively prepared and ready to address the different issues that he's going to face as attorney general at the department of justice. trish: never a dull moment. thank you so much. good to see both of you. another big story we're following right now. speaker paul ryan met with top trump advisers to address tax reform, a major priority for the president-elect and the new congress. mr. trump wants to reduce the number of tax brackets from 7 to 3. the highest bracket would be
2:08 pm
33% which is below the current nearly 40% right now. also discussed at the meeting, taxing imports. something we heard trump hit hard on the past few weeks on, he's threatening upwards of 35% tariff potentially on goods that are made overseas coming into the united states of america and that makes a lost folks nervous. how exactly would this work? joining me fox news contributor steve moore. steve, you've been involved in these meetings, you've been advising him on tax policy. i know you're all for a lower individual and a lower corporate tax. tell me a little bitbo this potential for riffs. >> by the way, i was not in the meeting last night, to set the record straight, i was involved in the very early stages of helping put together the trump tax plan. and as you know, the heart of it is to get the rates down
2:09 pm
lower. this is this issue called border adjustability, trish, bubbles for two or three months and now simmering. you had argument last night between some of the trump representatives and chairman brady wanted to do and paul ryan. just to make this clear to people. so right now in my opinion, we have the dumbest way we tax. we tax what we produce and export but don't tax what is imported. most countries do the opposite. the issue of border adjustability is it would change the way we tax, when we produce something in the united states and send it abroad it would not be taxed but when something is brought into the united states and consumed here it would be taxed. trish: what's wrong with that, right? if everybody else around the world is taxing our goods as they come in, doesn't seem we
2:10 pm
have a level or fair playing field? >> well said, this is exactly the way i feel. i'm not talking for the incoming trump administration, i'm talking as a private economist. i believe the right way to do it is to tax what we're importing, not what we're producing here and exporting. you said it well, trish, this is what every other country says. trish: import, export, reminds me of the "seinfeld," it can get complicated. if china is makin something overseas and want to send it here to the united states of america. >> we do not tax it. trish: we don't tax it right now. by the way, they tax us if we send something over there. the thinking is we'd be looking at a tax on that import coming into the united states of america from china, but if we made something here, we wouldn't tax it, we wouldn't tax that corporation for the goods and the profits they made
2:11 pm
here, just so i understand you. >> well, exactly, if it's -- well, if it's consumed here, in other words, what we're doing is moving more towards a policy where we're taxing what things are consumed rather than where they're produced. you can see the difference. what happens is and donald trump has a very solid point here. we have all the free trade deals, we won't tax your imports if you don't tax our imports and so on, but what happens is those countries slap our exports with what's called a value added tax, trish, that's like a tax that they charge at the border. trish: i know, i know. >> we're the only country in the world that doesn't do it, and trump is right, the rest of the world is laughing behind our backs. trish: can i? the school of free trade and globalization and let's grow the economy and the pie for everyone would say let's get rid of all taxes, that's not
2:12 pm
going to work. >> of course. trish: because china is not going to do that and play that game. in other words, you're trying to give us a little more edge, little more advantage in economy that is becoming increasingly global. how do you at the same time, devil's advocate, make sure you don't slow down trade. >> that's a great point. trish: what you don't hurt what we're doing? >> great point, trish, some of the people oppose the tax policy which is in the ways and means committee house bill. what they say is look, there's going to be retaliation, if we impose the goods that are imported in the united states, they import the taxous. they already do. they already do. trish: you are right. >> some people say well, this is violating the trade deal, the world trade -- trish: wto. >> there is some controversy
2:13 pm
whether it does or doesn't. trish: as a wanna-be economist, i love your enthusiasm for it, it's fascinating to see all the changes that could potentially happen that will have real consequences, hopefully good ones for the united states economy. thank you so much, steve moore. >> thank you so much, hope it brought light. trish: president obama to say good-bye to the nation in adopted hometown of chicago, he's expected to tout accomplishments, economic record and make the case to keep obamacare, his big legacy. made no secret of the fact he doesn't like donald trump. is he going to fire warning shots to the president-elect who has vowed to undo much of president obama's agenda? we're on it. see you back here right after this. why pause a spontaneous moment? cialis for daily use treats ed and the urinary symptoms of bph.

2:17 pm
. trish: all right, welcome back, everyone. president obama bidding the american people farewell tonight, making his final presidential speech in the city where he got it all started, chicago. he's likely going to devote some time to attacking his successor, we think he will. president-elect donald trump, who has vowed to overturn much of president obama's agenda. everything he put into place including obamacare. we have complete coverage of that speech tonight beginning at 9:00 p.m. out to adam shapiro at the white house with a preview for us. adam, the big question, is he going to go after the man trying to undo his legacy? >> reporter: great question to ask. all indications there are four drafts that the president will deliver this evening. and all indications, the white house is saying, president obama will look forward and not necessarily go on the attack
2:18 pm
against donald trump, and is still committed to a peaceful, friendly transition, but in regards to obamacare and whether the president will make the case as to why that should be left alone and why he would disagree with what republicans in the incoming administration plan, no word as to whether he's going to make the case to defend his legacy legislation. here's what josh earnest had to say about everything we can expect tonight? >> the president's committed to delivering a forward-looking speech that will examine briefly the significant progress that our country has made in the last eight years, but it will take a closer look and spend more time talking about what the president believes is necessary for us to confront the challenges that lie ahead. >> reporter: so the president will be heading to chicago in just a few hours, the people attending this speech at
2:19 pm
mccormick place line up for the speech at 8:00 p.m. and expected to take about 30 minutes, that's what the white house is saying, probably 40, 45 minutes if history is any indicator. he has chosen, chicago, as you said, because it's where his political career began. and for him this is a kind of going home. his last trip on air force one to chicago and back today. trish: thank you very much, adam shapiro. all right, another question for you. how do you think his legacy will fare? how will obamanomics will be remembered? he's got some things he can point to, and i know you're going to tell me about them. i'll get them out there. the stock market, for example, the stock market succeeded and you're going to tell me he's created a lot of jobs. i want to hear why or whether you think he's been a real economic success? >> it's 11 million jobs to be precise, trish, you are right,
2:20 pm
the stock market is close to 20,000 if it hasn't hit it already, that has everything to do with the president rebuilding america. when the president got the key to this economy, it was a hot pile of garbage, it was a mess, utter chaos. foreclosures on houses, the banking industry was running rampant, bear stearns collapsed and lehman brothers and this president steadied the court, i'm not saying the economy is booming and everyone at home is feeling the amazing benefits. i'm surprised they didn't step in and start getting things done. that's the facts. >> could have been a whole lot worse. i look at the 11 million jobs and appreciate we're creating jobs. i look at them, richard, and say wages have gone nowhere and i don't blame the president entirely for that. that shared among multiple administrations, wages have gone nowhere and a lot of the jobs are part-time jobs. >> you are absolutely right,
2:21 pm
trish, and here's the thing, we're living in -- i think you're living in a utopia if you believe that whe donald trump or hillary clinton or ted cruz or whoever won the election that we're going to create millions of manufacturing jobs. truth is manufacturing can no longer be where america is because of the globalization, because you can get cheaper labor. trish: yeah, i'm not a complete pessimist like you on that. >> we've got invest in technology, and the green economy. trish: i'm going to back up for a second, there's a few more things i want to poke a couple holes. in you talk about president obama and you say that he should be credited for this rise in the stock market, see, i would differ with that, richard, say i'm crediting janet yellen, and those at the fed for all that they have done in terms of fueling a cheap money environment. i look at what president obama has done. he's impeded the process, he's
2:22 pm
hurt confidence. he has made it difficult for business owners to succeed in this economic environment. the reason why you have all the upside in the stock market, actually isn't based on real economic fundamentals, it's based on fed policy, it's based on mergers and acquisitions and all that that brings with it, unfortunately, often fewer jobs. >> i think that's unfair, that's an unfair sort of set of ideals to make. a lot of people thank bill clinton for the economic boom of the 90s when part of that was due to the incubation of the technology industry and blame george bush for the decline because of things that have to do with 9/11 and deregulation of banks. you can't say bill clinton did a great job and george bush didn't. you have to thank the alternate person when hef the president of the united states, and thus, as history proves --
2:23 pm
trish: fundamental economics here, 1.8% annual growth is nothing to write home about in eight years. >> but that is living on -- understanding the facts that when he took over we were almost at negative 4% gdp growth. trish: stop there you, i am a student of economics and i can tell you in any other economic point in history, when you have a bad, bad recessionary environment, guess what, you look that much better on the other side. we never looked that much better on the other side, we're still waiting for it. >> but, i'm sorry, i'm sorry, if you ask any economist, and trish, come on, 4% growth is amazing, 4% growth. trish: i'll believe it if it stays there. we have been at 1.8% annually over eight years. >> very true, very true. trish: and could be better if we had a pro business environment. >> before the recession it was
2:24 pm
negative 4%. i'm not saying it's perfect, but it turned the tide. trish: do you think donald trump is doing a little something to create a more confident environment that is going to get people excited about investing in america? >> where president obama failed is not selling victories. what donald trump is doing he is a marketer in chief is every time he's created a job, he's going to tweet about it. that's good pr. i do pr for a living, that's good pr. trish: we're going to end it on that because we agree on that. i wished earlier on obama had been a little more positive. >> i think he could have been a better advertiser. we could have had a better advertiser. trish: we don't always agree but always good to talk to you. fox business is going to have special coverage of president obama's final address tonight. tune in at 11:00 a.m. eastern,
2:25 pm
it's going to be his first news conference since he was elected. he'll be talking about a lot of things pertaining to the economy, pertaining to cabinet picks. a lot more "intel" coming up. i'll see you after this.
2:26 pm
. .
2:27 pm
2:28 pm
liz: did you ever wonder if dinosaurs can sing or gingerbread house could survive earthquake or how long a fish can rudd on a treadmill, right? members about congress did. they used your money to figure out the answer the arizona senator jeff flake released his annual "wastebook" report, highlighting $5 billion of outrageous government spending all paid for with your hard-earned dollars. national debt about to reach 20 trillion, isn't it time we think about cuttings down on some of this waste? americans for tax reform president grover norquist who
2:29 pm
says yeah, it is about time, because you don't really care whether or not fish can run on a treadmill, right, grover? >> i'm fascinated whether fish can run on a treadmill. i think anyone who wants to put the time and effort -- liz: in case you're wondering, really quick we have video. >> okay. liz: there you go, fish running on a treadmill. finish your thought, grover. >> if somebody want to look into it with their own money, fascinating. if they want to take anybody else's money, a felony. liz: this cracks me up. out in denver, colorado, using taxpayer dollars, federal dollars to have this warning against marijuana. they don't want people to smoke marijuana, or ingest it in any way, wind up on the road. so they created this giant sign, this marijuana cigarette, joint, to try to dizzy wade people.
2:30 pm
this is denver, colorado. with a giant joint on the side of a building. what is that about, grover? is that marketing or trying to dissuade people. >> if you have too much of other people's money you eventually run out of reasonable ways to spend it. this is about $5 billion worth of different waste that senator flake arizona put forward. it is important not only to point out each of these sort of ridiculous projects but also, this is wasted money somebody spent a lot of time earning. they worked hours and hours this money was taken away by the government, promises they would spend it wisely. we're sometimes told the real spending problem in washington are entitlements and unfunded liabilities. and it is true toes are very large and need to be repealed but that does not justify wastings small amounts like $5 billion.
2:31 pm
of money that people earn. defeating earmarks this, is in the context of i think of a life and death fight going on in washington. some people want to bring back the corrupt earmarks, give money to a congressman, he or she would stick a spending bill in, that is how some people end up in prison. how more people should end up in prison. when congress, republicans led the way to kill earmarks that was great. there is a move afoot to try to bring them back. i think this is a good vaccine. trish: good reminder for everybody, to your point earlier what happens when you have too much of other people's money to spend. in other words, no sense of responsibility, no sense of really where the money should be going. this is why a market-based system generally works really well because there are incentives. you align those incentives properly to make the most in terms of profitability and make the most out of invest, right, grover?
2:32 pm
>> absolutely. look this is somebody else's money. if you don't waste it today, what good is it. trish: grover? >> yes. trish: i will play this. want to get your reaction. i want to know whether this scares you? we don't have it? do we have it. >> and devour anything. ♪ trish: all right. just the "jaws" theme song, all right? it is kind of scary. you know what? you don't need to spend taxpayer dollars to figure out whether "jaws" music is scary. that is one more thing they did. i have to squeeze it in. >> got it. trish: grover, good to see you you. >> thank you. trish: democratic lawmakers rehanging a controversial painting on capitol hill that depicts police as pigs. this painting, enraging law enforcement and one congressman so much he actually took the
2:33 pm
painting himself down last week. so, why are there all these democrats right now just obsessed with rehanging this very offense seven painting? we're on that next.
2:34 pm
2:35 pm
2:36 pm
trish: this morning missouri congressman william clay rehung a controversial painting on capitol hill for the second time today. take a look at this thing. this is so-called artwork clearly offends many, many
2:37 pm
people, because it's depicting a pig in a police uniform aiming a gun at a black protester. days ago it was taken down by california congressman duncan hunter, and then it was rehung by clay this morning. it was immediately taken down again by congressman from colorado, doug lamborn. fox news reporting that painting is somehow back up yet again. joining me fox business contributor deroy murdoch and former nypd detective bo dietl. look, i think a lot of people, especially those that are in the police department, would be very, very, very offended by that picture. >> i'm very offended. trish: why not keep it down? >> we had new york city, what do you want dead cops, when do you want them, now? pigs in a blanket. fry them like pigs in a blanket. look what happened. they put in a environment, big
2:38 pm
bird de blasio, put environment, shut down brooklyn bridge, shut down roadways. this creep from baltimore came in and assassinated new york city cops. tell it to the families of five officers in dallas that were gunned down. you want to betray cops like this? this is horrible and wrong. trish: this is not portraying. not like off in some art gallery. this is on public property in capitol hill. >> kids are coming up there to visit the capitol. they have got to see this. in their mind, it is in the capitol, that it's right. just imagine if they had an image of muhammad there in a bad way or something like that. i'm outraged as former detective in new york city and police officer that is in the capitol like that. that is wrong. trish: got these lawmakers continue putting it up. it gets taken down but they keep putting it up. >> this is not racially inflammatory and divisive painting which is bad enough, advances the whole idea, if you're black it is open season and copses are gunning down
2:39 pm
blacks all over the place. look at chicago, the nation's murder capital. 780 homicides. 620 were black people. how many were killed by cops? the 10. the balance killed by mainly other black folks. maybe you have a 2% problem where cops shoot people, but many cases justified, assume they're unjustified, we never talk about the 98% of the black folks killed in chicago by other black people. everybody focus on that. that is where "black lives matter," political outrage is and nothing about the other 98% of blacks. they're oust raged like that. >> when they see the painting there, officers on the street trying to get some sort of a calm and quiet something down, they have this negative attitude because of this. portray cops as pigs killing people. trish: how does that make you feel, if you're trying to do your job? >> tell that police officer's family, african-american died in orlando. she was gunned down protecting
2:40 pm
somebody, you tell her family that they should look at this photograph. she gave her life for people that she was protecting, cops are out there every day. trish: getting at bigger issue though, of right, cops not feeling like they have the support of the people that need to support them. >> what happens. i can't blame them, they stay in their squad cars and in their precincts. afraid, if they're lucky get harassed or sued. if they're not lucky they get assassinated. they see something and drive on by. black folks get murdered by other black people. black lives mat managed to do is get more black people killed that is the one accomplishment. >> in new york city, we have probably the greatest police department in the world but we have a mayor trying to take credit. if anything he gave them 1% raise over four years. they're making $41 a year with a college degree. -- $41,000 a year. we give credit to the crime reduction in the new york? men and women of new york city police department out there working under this stress.
2:41 pm
they have five different monitors. ccrb, special monitor here, this one, that one, he have this to work under them. doing a damn good job. then you get mayor de blasio, mayor emanuel there in chicago, 762 dead. where is the outrage? we have got president obama going to chicago. where is the outrage for all these years thousands of young men and women being killed? 5-year-old shot on the porch. hit in the head going to school. stop the nonsense. >> more kids killed -- trish: you expect that stuff in banana republic. maybe in medellin, colombia. the murder rate in chicago. >> obama a man eight years from man of chicago, what are you doing, this is awful. this has to stop. no more leadership. >> surprised at this congressman. i have a lot of respect for government officials, but if you know you're offending somebody, why offend? the young man won the prize for the best painting whatever it was, if you know you're
2:42 pm
offending someone, son, we had it up for a while. >> put another painting up. trish: this, that has become such a political issue. unfortunately common decency is getting lost in all of this. good to see both of you guys. bo, clean this city up. >> when you have 320 hemless in penn station last friday and people walking around with their kids trying to go to one place or the other, we got a real problem. that will only turn into violence because they're afraid of this, afraid of that we've got to deal with problems when they're small so it doesn't become big. trish: bo, running for mayor of new york city. >> yes. trish: widow after new york man killed in brussels terror attack, is suing twitter for being a tool and weapon of terrorism. she says twitter is a weapon of terrorism. she is accusing the company aiding and abetting isis acting as their communication and

2:46 pm
trish: we've of a new york man who was killed in isis's terrorist attack in brussels is suing twitter for knowingly providing material support and resources to the jihadist group. she is not alone. families are coming out in droves to claim that social media sites like twitter and facebook are actually tools for terrorism. my next guest is an attorney who represents the families of four terror victims and he too is suing twitter. joining me attorney keith altman. keith, thanks for being here. tell me a little bit about the families you're representing and
2:47 pm
the angle you're going after the likes of twitter with. >> thanks for having me on. my firm, 1-8-hundred-law firm. we have been researching this issue a very long time. it comes down to the fact that the companies believe they have no obligation to prevent terrorists using their sites as instruments to conduct terrorist operation. google as well, via youtube. these are the sites of tool of choice. terrorist groups use them to radicalize, raise money and conduct operations. it simply has to stop. trish: twitter would say we're doing what we can. we're trying to stop it. every time we find out there is isis-linked account they're shutting it down. what do you say? >> they're not doing what they can do. if you look at our complaint in the orlando shooting, what you find, an individual, they took his account down 145 times. every time he comes up and recycles and increments the number.
2:48 pm
