6:03 am
hope you guys had a great week. former congressman of fox news contributor, lieutenant colonel allen west. trump great america pac cochaired reagan campaign manager. one of my favorite people on the planet, ed rollins. he's joined by another chairperson of mine, fox news senior judicial analyst judge andrew napolitano. former michigan congressman and the house intelligence committee, pete hoekstra. conservative review editor and host of michelle malkin investigates on crt v. investigates, michelle malkin. you don't want to miss any of these fabulous people. senate judiciary committee expected to vote on supreme court nominee judge neil gorsuch today setting up a political showdown before a final vote on friday. many democrats plan to try and filibuster the nomination, many republicans will need 60 votes to break the procedural hurdle. senator joe donnelly becoming the third democrat to break ranks and publicly support judge
6:04 am
gorsuch, joining senator heidi had camp and joe manchin from west virginia who back the nominee last week. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell and senate minority leader chuck schumer waving yesterday. >> judge gorsuch is going to be confirmed. the way in which that occurs is in the hands of the democratic authority. during the course of the week, we'll find out exactly how this will end. but it will end with his confirmation. >> it looks like gorsuch will not reach the 60-vote margin. instead of changing the rules, which is a too much mcconnell in the republican majority, why does the president trump, democrats and republicans in the senate sit down and try to come up with the mainstream nominee? dagen: joining us in former whitewater independent counsel, federal prosecutor and partner for thompson and night, robert ray. robert, senator schumer wrongly called the new clear option enables change.
6:05 am
it is actually changing senate precedent. i wanted to make that clear because the senate has 44 was sending it to seven votes to change those rules. it would be seven more votes necessary to invoke cloture and stop debate on gorsuch nomination. i want to make that clear. and senator schumer said came to change the nominee, that is foolhardy. the mac it is mass. that is completely ridiculous. and also, you know, who are we replacing here? we are replacing justice scalia. justice scalia. and certain chuck schumer would consider justice scalia outside the mainstream and we are replacing at least according to his tests, one outside the mainstream justice with another outside the mainstream justice. it doesn't make any sense. president trump is right that's what we had an election about. i disagree with the premise first of all that judge gorsuch is outside the mainstream and even if you accept senator
6:06 am
schumer's president doesn't go anywhere because that's what we had an election to decide and we are replacing justice scalia but just as gorsuch. dagen: to paraphrase "the wall street journal," schumer is only going to be happy with anyone less of ruth bader ginsburg first and foremost. and they are so chapped a few well about merit garland. but that doesn't mean that judge gorsuch is unqualified. in fact, he's incredibly qualified them and they try to attack him and his decision in many instances where he's fooled again business interests. >> it's easy to cherry pick decisions. the judge has been a judge for quite some time. if you want one or two decision something that establishes a problem in part this, that argument really doesn't work and second, more importantly, if chuck schumer thinks he's accomplishing anything here, he's mistaken. if the senate changes the
6:07 am
practice as is going to happen if the democrats have the votes at least to deal with the question of cloture. this isn't going to go anywhere either. all this is going to do is essentially mean that you are never going to have the mainstream nominee. each party is going to be able to confirm by simple majority. he's not even accomplishing what he thinks he is trying to accomplish. >> they are saying is that activities voted against republicans have the time when they won unanimous consent at all so they couldn't find one thing it does to them. i haven't heard one argument he voted this way are this way. he seems like you pass the test. didn't think there. what is this mainstream russian markup can he be more mainstream? what is the main argument other than garland. we don't know if hillary clinton would've kept merrick garland. >> they seem to have made the attempt to argue he's interested
6:08 am
in trying to attack the administrative state which obviously is something president trump has discussed. that is a question about whether or not chevron come the supreme court decision should be overruled a lot of mainstream people have real problems with that decision. >> but also keeps trump's administration and check which is good for democrats. >> a lot of people appointed chevron was decided during the reagan era. it is kind of a nonsensical argument. democrats believe fully in the administrators day. the question is that depends on which aspect of the administrative state the favor. dagen: robert commented republicans have to resort to changing senate precedent? by the way, we must always remind people, harry reid at this. they did this not for supreme court nominees, but for lower court judicial nominees and cabinet appointments in 2013.
6:09 am
democrats might be jawboning about it now if there's a precedent change, but it has been under harry reid and he's the one that opened the door. >> a lot of democrats are worried about reaching that result. time will tell. five days of politics is a long time. i'll be curious to see what the democrats ultimately decide to do. a lot of people at will be implied about what will happen. i don't know whether the votes are there for the votes are not there. it's too early to tell it surprising that the little too early to tell an amended before a friday though. dagen: we did hear from claire mccaskill from the state of missouri last week issues that reelection in 2018. that is a trump state, red state and she's going to vote no. >> republicans are surprised at that. they thought she might go the other way. that's not happening. not everybody is talking an still not there to meet even at this late in the game whether this will happen are not going to happen. lauren: when a pitcher i.d.
6:10 am
assigned the city in massachusetts that will decide whether to call for an impeachment investigation for president donald trump. a city council vote waited for it today. there is actually a similar vote in the city of her plea, california which by the way i'm surprised it's even part of the united states anymore. it is just idiocy. >> lots of cities in the united states. dagen: that they are coming -- how is that the interests of the people who live in the cities they vote on impeaching the president? >> airplane to the cheap seats i suppose. look, it is a big country. they are a divided country i guess. there are lots of cities in this country and lots of people who i think refuse even now more than 70 days later to accept the results of the election and they are thinking about any number of ways to try to see how they can damage this president be.
6:11 am
it is still very early in the notion people are talking about impeachment is ridiculous. >> they are wasting government is. >> i was going to say, what the vote they should say to you know what impeachment means here? i think there's a misconception. dagen: there should be a quiz before and >> a frivolous post to muscle have one more. >> people don't understand how hard impeachment is. it requires both parties to be on board to impeach a president. that's not going to happen except in extremely unusual circumstances. dagen: somebody actually has to not last week. somebody who owns a business in new york city sort of landover and asked me what it would take to impeach the president. i went are you drunk? it's early in the morning to say that. >> really is a the signaling.
6:12 am
liberal groups are missed more liberal cities in the thinking going on with these groups pressuring not to vote for judge gorsuch it is hard left liberal, they try to say we want to does this man at any cost. it's really another symptom of the same issue. >> their sanctuary cities already. in more ways than one. dagen: robert, thank you for being here. come back later in the week. president trump needs a daddy needs a debian, england. >> i think i have this as i said one way or another. dagen: robert gray, thank you so much. severe weather same in the south louisiana on high alert after a tornado kills a mother and her small child. for issuing a recall of one of its most popular pickups. what you need to know next. why a spontaneous moment?

6:35 am
dagen, one of the first things that i would correct is i would not be meeting with the chinese president xi jinping at mar-a-lago i think you lose a sense of power base should it happen in washington, d.c., at the white house or should happen after camp david should not happen at president trump's resort the other thing you have to be able to show china, that you are willing to take actions before xi jinping gets here as a matter of fact a couple weeks ago navy was qualifying increase of what is called frame navigation probations in south china sea, the short term for it we know about the expansion of china and south china sea building of man-made islands now landing military aircraft a great way to send a message to zoo xi before he comes here we're not going to tolerate that as far as president trump what he has to do is sit down make sure, that -- is on the same sheet of music with allies in the region such as south korea also japan, because right now when you
6:36 am
make this type of assertion you know the xi jinping is going to come here say, you know i am from missouri you got to show me. >> well colonel west there has been a lot of talk about u.s. trade relationship with china recently, president trump signed two ideas to that send do you think good levin there is a possibility united states could with economic activity, kind of push china into a roll where it has to negotiate with us, better, on foreign policy do you think that really has any leverage at all that that is a hopeful situation. >> no -- you are absolutely right one of the things that they teach you at military senior college is that there are four elements of a nation powers democratic informational military economics called dime theory very portray diplomatic aspect working with al looigs in the region the economic aspect, the further point of that economic aspect, is what are we going to do with a tax
6:37 am
reform so we can get our economy booming here, in the united states of america, increase our gdp growth, but that trade aspect dealing with china is another important thing that we need to put pressure on china dagen: i want to point out trump administration, and peter navarro on this program denied that it was that those executive orders were directly rioted to china did a address every country we trade with. >> main question can we see sanctions come out against chinese to use as leverage one of the things we have not done is actually gone up their banking republicans with north korea, "the wall street journal" has covered this they call it north korea sanctions net an article last week about it how they north korea is not sanctioned as hard as burma can we exhaust rurs you have seen it in media over the weekend, that you know everything is on the table.
6:38 am

to sit down negotiate this was a bill that was not obviously with any popular appeal 17% approval rating, and -- a lot of a lot of factors in that bill that would not have been successful in the senate i think a long ways to go, a lot of issues on the horizon. this president probably worse week of any of his presidency not worst pique in presidency but certainly of his presidency this weekend busiest week he has not just china visit he has president egypt today the king of jordan tomorrow, next day, that -- foreign policy visit like that normally takes a week or two to get prepared, you know, let alone china visit you've got three stacked up i would shoot scheduleder if in white house. >> you mentioned a major week for diplomacy as ed pointing out president trump is meeting with the leaders of egypt and jordan then will host later in the week chinese president xi jinping, at mar-a-lago on friday. the meeting comes days after

prices. this is important, tee everybody holding oil holding steady this morning after logging their strongest week of the year on increasing optimism that major producers will keep output capped in second half of the year, joining us now to weigh in on what we can expect, chief oil analyst at oil price information service tom, knows more about oil and gasoline than anybody walking on -- well in the u.s., what can you expect from oil prices, in the next three months, in second quarter? is in a it will be nothing like the previous three months, this is the quarter where they get juiced up take off unbe known ased to mot people rallied 13 -- in last 10 days a quarter traditional brings increases 15, 20, 25 cents a gallon for gasoline, i think you are going to see it in april, you will probably see it in may. then go out to june at this
7:25 am
point. but you will see prices go to the highest numbers you have seen since probably august 2015. it is not apocalyptic you can afford it but everybody will be talking about the highest price -- remember when i could get 10 gallons for 20 dollars, will seem ancient history. >> main question we have seen oil really stabilize around 50 dollar level can we ever see the 60, 70 dollar level given you are seeing majors try to do horizon fracking deepwater trying to become more efficient, people in permian basin but will out oil 29 $ range can we see oil rebound to two levels above 60 bother 70? >> i think above 07 is tough. -- 70 is tough home run totals in major league baseball. that is about as much as we've
7:26 am
got to get to in terms of crude oil prices, so if you have everything come together for the right year you can see some prices in the 60s but you are right. in that -- the break evens have come down for the shale producers in particular there is shale producers that are making a lot of money at 30 dollars. and 35 bars a barrel the middle east oil, when has been sort of restrained in the last 100 days or so there is a lot of that that can be brought to the surface for less than 10 dollars a barrel. but i think that this is a sweet spot the sweet spot is around 55, 57 or so. and we were too low when we dropped into the 40s we can drop into 40s again into 30s again if we have a recession, but instead of of that you have got more people driving than ever you've got brisk far sales you've got people opting for suvs, as opposed to the real you know the preuses, so

7:35 am
napolitano. not clear mccaskill who is up for reelection. she is not going to vote for him. do you think that gorsuch is up used -- approved with those 60 votes. >> i do believe he will be on the supreme court of the nine states a week from today. there are democrats that are up for reelection in states that president trump carried very comfortably like the three whose names you just mentioned you probably will be moved by the fact that they don't want this to be an election issue against them in the state where the president campaigned and said you can have a vastly different supreme court with me then you well with hillary clinton an argument cane made that that is the reason for which a lot people voted for him. at the number three will increase weather gets to eight or not i don't know. the role in the senate and i will correct myself is not a rule it's a tradition in the
7:36 am
filibuster tradition in the senate can be broken with a simple 51 vote majority it takes 67 votes to change at the role. as a hard and fast rule. it's a tradition, courtesy that they will show to one. like jimmy stewart in the movie who well just keep talking and talking. when hillary clinton joins a senate i didn't want to have to send for 18 hours filibustering they change the role. you don't have to talk you just had to say i'm invoking the filibuster tradition. dagen: are you appalled by the pushback from the senator chuck schumer were it's not chine -- time to change the rule it's time to change the nominee? >> i think as smart as politician as he is he is wasting political capital on this. this is not changing the
7:37 am
liberal justice seat to a conservative justice seat this is change it to people who think very similar really just a scalia who is no longer with us and judge gorsuch. you know i played a small role in the president's decision to choose gorsuch. it compared to the ids in the ideology in the themes into the wording of justice scalia and they found a remarkable similarity between the two. so this is not a change in ideology. i will type what is maddening the democrats they think it's a stolen seat. they think this should have gone to whoever president obama chose to replace justice scalia and they can't take it out of their system. dagen: the republicans and i can go back and no one is
7:38 am
going to nominate mayor garland that's in the past. i think that far too mainstream middle-of-the-road they knew this that they have to win at the election to nominate a new supreme court. they ran on this time and time again. when we look at neil gorsuch he passes the two test. competency and character and as all that should really matter given the fact that you're talking about he is just like justice scalia who got past 98 to zero. >> when the democrats succeeded from preventing him from getting on the bench by demonstrating whether accurately or not to do his thinking was outside the mainstream of legal thinking the senate judiciary committee role was limited to is this person qualified, it was not
7:39 am
do we do agree with his person ideologically. the trump card no pun intended goes to the president. a liberal president gets to choose a liberal supreme court justice. conservative justice is to choose a conservative person. dagen: they drew a few no votes but there was no filibuster threat against these individuals which is why i'm scratching my have a little bit to try to figure out where chuck schumer is going. he will spend and waste a tremendous amount of political capital when and if that filibuster fails. he sits in the corner and its no, no, no. on everything a federal judge is allowing a lawsuit claiming that president trump incited violence during his campaign rally this judge is allowing the church to move forward.
7:40 am
they said it's plausible that he incited a rally last year what is your take on this. >> we have some people that are injured at a trump rally. they expressed the disenchantment with him. we all heard him say that. unfortunately in this case to get him out of them resulted in these people being pummeled and injured they are suing the campaign in the present. the law is that all innocuous speech is protected and all speech is innocuous when there is time for more speech to rebut it. so if trump said get him out of here and there's time for someone to say, down there just exercising their freedom of speech. if he says get them out there. and there's no space time to respond to his words then it's
7:41 am
a jury question to whether or not he incited this violence. i'm sorry to see this type of litigation going forward it's probably the correct ruling. dagen: are they can have to change the precedent. my gut tells me they are not to reach the 60. they have never ever required 60 for a supreme court justice in the past. this is the first time in the minority in the senate has insisted this person can't get on with fewer than 60 votes. we have almost four years. dagen: thank you so much. baseball for babies. how the honest company is hoping to hit a homerun with

8:08 am
think, most right now looking at economic sanctions, economic pressure, and he's -- kind of laying it out there for china saying, we need you onboard now you haven't been onboard you have not help us so i think you know, everyone is always said leverage point is china. now the president is calling on china to use its leverage, otherwise, say we've got to do something else. >> congressman i feel like on this issue we are in this vicious cycle you played you know service to that. for decades with north korea acts like a petulant child sanctions enacted china steps in everyone backs off everything goes north korea does it again how do we get how does trump get xi to see about cycle needs to be broken one way or the other what is beginning argument given in could be turmoil you can't make omelet without breaking
8:09 am
with eggs eggs need to go broken how does trump get anxiety to see that. >> lay out facts it has been cycle one thing consistent throughout that cycle, as the outside players have been trying to influence china, excuse me as they have been trying to influence north korea, is that north korea continues to develop its capabilities, not like, it has been stuck in neutral for the last 15 years, it has continued to move forward, it capabilities are you know significantly greater today than what they were 10 years ago that is what donald trump needs to lay out to the chinese this week and say you know "they are c close to being a threat to you know heat wee or the mainland united states, we are not going to allow that to happen we've let them become a articulate to south korea japan, but it has to stop". >> middle east source telling fox news president trump's son-in-law does work in white house as well jared kushner on

things to take away too is seems like the states in municipalities are implementing policies attracting businesses as well as more affordable what policies are you seeing that deploying that separating them from liberal counterparts? >> well i think, first of all, there is plenty growth cities outside of particular list that we're talking about. for example dallas, texas job leader in the country, atlanta los angeles, new york, there is broad growth across the country, these pillar examples of growth in 2017 have to do with private/public partnership that is occurred in many of the instances, but, more importantly, besides this really focusing on specific companies, we are beginning to see the innovation and rerejuvenate nation of older industries take shape for example what happened in detroit, auto longer term look what a happened in philadelphia, economdiversifica.
