tv WSJ at Large With Gerry Baker FOX Business December 28, 2019 12:30am-1:00am EST
speed of sound and it's operational, ready for combat. the russians claim it can be launched from a ballistic missile it can also make maneuvers after separation, making it much harder to intercept. china claims it's developing a similar system. russia, china and iran have started a joint naval exercise in the gulf oman. the drills last until monday. joining me to talk about it, colonel douglas mcgregor. how concerned should the u.s. be about these exercises teaming up russia, china and iran. >> i don't think we need to be concerned have much. the russians and the chinese are concerned by the high probability the iranian
government could suddenly implode. the government is very weak as a result of the uprisings in november and december. they want to stiffen the resolve of the iranian government. they don't want to see chaos break out in the region. gregg: the u.s. embargo of weapons sales to iran is set to end. they are making noise about how they are going to sell weaponry to iran. >> the russians don't have anything to offer anyone in the world other than weapons which are cheaper than what we would offer. if the government falls apart. the economy implodes and you have widespread chaos, they won't have anybody to sell anything to. gregg: president trump issued a stern warning to russia and iran
against the killing or murder of innocent civilians in syria. we know that more than 200,000 have fled their homes. what can the u.s. do? what should it do, if anything? >> i think your point at the end is correct, if anything. your viewers may or may not know that idlib has been a sanctuary for the sunni terrorists, including thousands of uighurs from china. turks, not just arabs. they have been seeking sanctuary in idlib. i would not rescue them. the civilian population is being supportive of these people. so frankly i would stay out. gregg: i mentioned at the top that russia claims they have
operational hypersonic icbm 27 times the speed of sound. do you believe that? they made false claims before about weaponry. do you believe that? what should our reaction be, develop our own hypersonic? it's in development. what about interceptors in space? >> you hit the nail on the head. this time last year mr. you continue and his defense minister announced a nuclear powered icbm. it vanished from sight, and it, too, was going to enter the russian arsenal. moving a missile that fast, we can do that now. but guiding it to the target, maneuvering it at these high speeds, particularly at high altitude. these things are extremely difficult. the russians cannot do that.
i would this aside and keep tonight mind. but we also are pressing ahead, and i think we'll get there ahead of them. whether we decide to use these things is another matter. let's be sceptical of the russians on this one. gregg: colonel mcgregor, thanks for being with us. coming up next. could president trump have the articles of impeachment dismissed? we'll talk about that when we come back. i've always loved seeing what's next. and i'm still going for my best, even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin, i'll go for that. eliquis. eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin.
eliquis is fda-approved and has both. what's next? sharing my roots. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis, the number one cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner. ask your doctor if eliquis is what's next for you.
[♪] gregg: welcome back. i'm gregg jarrett sitting in for the vacationing lou dobbs. we are covering impeachment hypocrisy. president trump pointing out nancy pelosi's demand for a fair trial after holding partisan hearings in the house. john durham's investigation reportedly having a heavy focus on the cia former director, john brennan. haspel now has to decide whether to cooperate with durham. the focus on jeffrey epstein's co-conspirators. including british socialite jill
lane social dghislaine maxwell. journalist peter baker point out senate democrats kooshed night with the white house in key issues behind the scene. democratic leadership used secret signals with the white house counsel to rebut house managers. joining me, jenna ellis, constitutional law attorney. tom daschle admits when he was democrat minority leader he was coordinating closely with the white house in the bill clinton impeachment. now democrats are apoplectic along with the complicit media. this is wrong, this is unfair for mitch mcconnell to coordinate with the white house. another example of rank
hypocrisy? >> nancy pelosi doesn't want a fair trial. she is scared a fair trial would show what a complete sham this is. there is nothing whatsoever to compare this impeachment and this whole process with bill clinton in the 90s. he was actually charged with a crime. there was bipartisan support for impeachment. and the senate agreed unanimously on the rules for procedure. nancy pelosi is forgetting the constitution. the separation of powers fully we can see that the house then when they put forward an impeachment that is so rankly unconstitutional. then the senate can in its discretion and with looking at the baseless accusations dismiss it outright and say this has been a political impeachment, this is something the founders never intended.
is there not evidence to support this. so mitch mcconnell would be within his constitutional prerogative for the members of the senate to say we are done here. gregg: americans are pretty smart. they know what's going on here. this thing is a sham and a farce. even the virulently trump-hating michael moore the filmmaker admits it. take a listen to this. >> if the vote were today i believe he would win the electoral states he would need. leg out there, i will tell you, his level of support has not gone down one inch. in fact i would say it's even more rabid than it was before. gregg: trump's poll numbers have gone up and his fundraising is through the roof all during this impeachment thing. which invites the question, has the trump-russia hoax and witch hunt now coupled together with
the impeachment farce only help the president politically? >> absolutely. you know, these are the democrats crying wolf. they are saying there is russia collusion. there is impeachment has some legitimate basis. they are showing all they are trying to do over the past three years, 19 minutes after president trump was inaugurated they started their impeachment drive. the american people are recognizing this is not constitutional. this is not what we elected the men and women in the house to do. disagree with his policy, but actually do your job. this has been the party of obstruction from day one. president trump in the midst of all these attacks, his poll numbers are going through the roof. the republican fundraising is so much higher. when the dems, the dnc is practically going bankrupt.
elizabeth warren is announcing she is not having that much fundraising. so the democrats are failing on every single turn. that's because president trump in the middle of this sham impeachment, the americans see through that. he is supporting constitutional conservative positions. he's work on behalf of the american people. the economy is the strongest it's ever been. and unemployment is the lowest in history. he's work on behalf of the american people. and that's what matters at the end of the day. they are not concerned about partisan politics that nancy pelosi wants them to be concerned about. they are concerned about themselves and their families. and what president trump is doing to support america. that's what america first means. gregg: jenna ellis, thanks for being with us. president trump can celebrate another achievement this year. his remain in mexico policy is starting to so results -- to
show results at the southern border. >> the on place i want to be is the united states. i never thought i would be returned here to juarez. reporter: thousands of mexican returned to mexico to await asylum. >> i came for opportunity in the united states, but the reality is different. reporter: since the trump administration unveiled its remain in mexico program, 65,000 migrants are forced to wait in mexico for a u.s. judge to hear their claim. the program according to a new study is doing exactly what the president intended. reducing the caseload and deterring others from making the trip. of 24,000 cases, judges denied 15,000 claims or 63%.
117 migrants actually received asylum. a rate of less than 1%. others were dismissed on procedural grounds. >> it's not just for people seeking asylum. it's for people who cross the border illegally. they are essentially on a detained docket. they are not going to be released until their case is heard. >> my dream is to be in the united states with my husband. but i wasn't allowed to cross. i was returned to mexico. reporter: this asylum seeker lacks shelter southern money, vulnerable to crime and extortion. >> they have to live in other camps on the other side of the border. for the first time in america we don't allow people to make their case in america. the number of migrants claiming asylum continues to fall.

[♪] greg center evangelical leaders pushing back on christianity today's push to remove president trump from office. in a letter they write we are not far-right evangelicals as character iized by the author. we are patriotic americans who are grateful the president sought our advice. his administration has advanced policies that protect the unborn and protect religious freedom. robert jeffress, author of the faith initiative. host of foxnation's pathway to victory. it's so great to see you. thank you for being with us, pastor. what's your reaction to the op-ed in christianity today? >> it was idiotic coming from a dying magazine that doesn't
represent evangelicals at all. the left understands how important the president's evangelical support was to our election in 2016, and how crucial it was to his reelection in 2020. that's why they are salivating for any report that his support is diminishing. it's not diminishing. there is a small but noisy evangelicals, about 19%, represented by christianity today that are whining and complaining about the president's temperament. but the vast majority understand this is the most pro-life, pro ridge liberty, pro d pro religious liberty. i believe he will win the evangelical vote in 2020 but an
even larger margin than which he won in 2016. gregg: 81% supporting president trump in the 2016 election. now, you are going to be at the upcoming evangelicals for trump rally. right? >> next friday in miami there is going to be a massive evangelical for trump rally and the whole nation will get to witness the great support evangelical christians who believe the bible and love this president. people voted for president trump not because we thought he was a saint. we knew he was a strong leader, and that's what we need in the president. we have never had a more pro-faith president in history than in donald j. trump.
gregg: the politics editor for the christian "post" has resigned because the group aligned itself with president trump. your reaction to that? >> this "christian post" had been anti-trump in many ways. i knew the editor there, he's a nice guy, but he was one of the never trumpers. i thinked magazine had internal discussions and decided that's not where they wanted to be. they wanted to be on the right side of history and he tendered his resignation. but these are non-stories. the real story is the continued overwhelming support of evangelicals for this president. gregg: i want to bring up a brightening story. the new york police department is investigating the 6th anti-semitic attack in the last four days. that by itself is appalling.
unless you consider the nationwide number of anti-semitic attacks. 1, 879. these are attacks involving harassment, vandalism or physical assault. i know the president signed an executive order to do what he can to fight anti-semitism on college campuses. if there is rhetoric or activities there, they lose their federal fund. what more needs to be done, pastor? >> we need to continue to speak out against it and recognize it's not only wrong, it's evil. the bible says the jewish people are the apple of god's eye. when you attack a jewish person, you are attacking the god of israel. there is a stiff penalty to be paid for doing that. i was honored to stand next to the president when he signed that executive order on
anti-semitism. before he signed it he asked me to speak to the group and say a word. i said thank god we have a president when it comes to israel and the jewish people is not on on the right side of history, he's on the right side of god. the jewish people, the nation of israel never had a better friend than they have in president donald trump. gregg: great to see you. happy holidays and thanks for being with us. imagine traveling hassle-free with your golf clubs. now you can, with shipsticks.com! no more lugging your clubs through the airport or risk having your clubs lost or damaged by the airlines. sending your own clubs ahead with shipsticks.com makes it fast & easy to get to your golf destination. with just a few clicks or a phone call, we'll pick up and deliver your clubs on-time, guaranteed, for as low as $39.99. shipsticks.com saves you time and money.

[♪] gregg: nancy pelosi continuing to hold on to a pair of partisan impeachment articles. no sign of changing course. white house press secretary stephanie grisham telling us president trump is unfazed by the democrats' impeachment farce. >> outside of washington, d.c., people are so tired of impeachment. poll numbers are showing that. people care about their paychecks, their families, their healthcare. that's what people care about and the democrats don't seem to care about that. our president will continue on. going into 2020 we are very strong and republicans are united. he will continue fighting for this country doing great things. gregg: my new book, "witch hunt"
is out now in bookstores everywhere. or you can bite online, amazon.com or barnes & noble.com. thanks for joining us, have a great weekend, everyone. [♪] reporter: democrats taking it to the extreme warning of tyranny if president trump is not removed from office. i'm ashley webster in for trish regan. i want you to take a listen to some of the fear mongering right here. >> i think the only thing more outrageous these days in washington than president trump and his fearful tweets are those republicans who enabled him to do this and take a little more freedom and a little more freedom until we have a tyranny here if he's not restrained. ashley: that's right, tyranny. if house democrats were so serious about r
