tv Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo FOX News April 12, 2015 7:00am-8:01am PDT
thanks forewatching everyone. enjoy the masters this afternoon. >> bye! hillary clinton erases the question mark. hi, everybody good morning, i'm maria bartiromo. this is "sunday morning futures." will she or won't she? an official answer is due any time now. the former first lady, former senator, former secretary of state becoming a presidential candidate for the second time. we will get expert analysis this morning and you can bet our panel has plenty to say about it. foreign policy the next drive of the presidential campaign season as we head toward a final nuclear agreement with iran. senator jonny isakson is moments
away. and the price of gasoline the ceo of conoco phillips on that as we look ahead on "sunday morning futures." president obama's first secretary of state, hillary clinton planning to announce at any moment her 2016 run for the white house. this as tensions between our middle eastern allies, saudi arabia and iran, heat up over the growing conflict in yemen and the u.s. and five other world powers continue to hammer out a deal with iran headed toward a june 30th nuclear deadline. so how big a role will foreign policy and global security play into the next administration? jonny isakson, member of the senate foreign relations committee joins us now. senator, good to have you on the program. >> good to be with you, maria. >> do you think foreign affairs, foreign policy will be a driver in this election for voters and how would you assess the kind of secretary of state hillary clinton was? >> well, first of all, it will be a big issue. it will be a big issue with
women because women are afraid for their children and security because of isil and what is unknown about iran. hillary clinton secretary as state the one commercial she ran against barack obama when he ran for president who do you want in the white house at 3:00 a.m. her call came in at 3:00 a.m. from benghazi and they didn't answer, she has to respond to that. >> voter also care about that. let me ask you, you are on the subcommittee for international cyber security policy. did hillary clinton breach national security? did she put the country at risk by using her own personal e-mail as secretary of state? >> we need all the facts to determine whether she did or not but the reason they're supposed to turn those isn is to have the evidence at hand. unfortunately 30,000 were destroyed and that's wrong. >> do you think you'll ever get to see them because they're still on the server or are they absolutely gone? >> maria, i learned something as chairman of the ethics committee, there's no such thing as everything being gone in the
computer. forensic analyst could probably find it. we need to know the answer to those questions. >> how would you assess her job as secretary of state senator? >> she did a good job in africa with our relations there and in terms of traveling the world, but in terms of benghazi that's going to be the one question she's got to answer because we had four americans in the cop flikt who lost their lives because the united states didn't respond and we know the state department knew they were under attack. that's the $64,000 question. >> sure is. senator, stay with us. lot to talk about with you this morning senator isakson. we want to get a breakdown of specific foreign policy issues that the 2016 presidential candidate will face. eric joins us with that angle good morning to you. >> good morning to you and everyone. iran, putin, isis the challenges facing our nation across the globe will land on the next president's desk whoever that is. >> she was an outstanding secretary of state. she is my friend.
i think she would be an excellent president. >> hillary clinton's tenure as secretary of state could bring its own benefits and unwanted complications. while she supported arming the syrian rebels against the president's view there are those continuing questions the senator just pointed out about benghazi,'s sxshlly in light of those many unknown deleted e-mails. >> the fact is we had four dead americans because of a protest, or because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they had go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? >> and then there was that famous but misguided with russia that didn't work. it is said "with the rise of the islamic state and the united states once again engaged in military operations in iraq rivals are taking clinton to task for a decision to support the original war, the iranian nuclear deal is another issue that leaves clinton vulnerable to attack."
but the republicans have had their share of foreign policy stumblings. governor scott walker in london punting on evolution. rand paul unraveling his previous bedrock criticism of foreign aid. >> i envision an america with a national defense unparalleled undefeatable and unencumbered by overseas nation building. >> and jeb bush will no doubt be shadowed by the foreign affairs successes of his father as well as the decision to go to war in iraq by his brother. >> freedom is the bedrock principle of this great country of ours. i do think there's some differences of opinion on foreign policy but look we're just beginning this journey. >> and then tomorrow, senator marco rubio will throw his hat into the ring a cuban-american, he's pointedly outspoken about president obama's cuba opolicy. with the president sitting down with cuban president raul castro who lavishly praised mr. obama, it's already made this an
unpredictable race even before it's started. maria? >> eric shawn, thanks very much. more now senator johnny isaisakson. you said she will have to answer questions regarding benghazi. what exactly are you looking to learn? >> well why the state department didn't respond quickly as they should have, why these four individuals lost their life without any defense why the attack was blamed publicly on a video and not blamed on what exactly happened. there's a lot of uncertainty around benghazi and the people deserve the right answers they deserve the truth and the families of those who lost their lives deserve the peace to know so. >> we certainly have not heard much from hillary on this. why do you think it's such a soft announcement? everyone's expecting her to run for president. she's apparently going to be fweeting it from her campaign headquarters and then heading to iowa. what is your sense of this announcement we're waiting on? >> i'm got really a strategist so it's just a personal opinion. i would think when somebody has 100% name i.d. and probably 100%
feeling positive or negative about her she doesn't need a big splash. she's trying to lay back and keep herself less vulnerable as possible. >> the deal in terms of the framework with iran or what's happening around isis and the really unraveling of things in yemen? >> isis in yemen we have the iranians fighting with us on one side and fighting against us on the other side and i think netanyahu's statement of the enemy of your enemy is still your enemy is still true and we're negotiating a nuclear deal with the iranians. the two most prominent diplomatic relationships the state department issued over this administration in the last couple of years is cuba and iran. the rest of the world we let to the side, that's why foreign policy is a huge issue in the presidential campaign. >> i agree with you. so cuba let's talk about that for a moment. the president meeting with raul castro, a lot of expectation that they are going to be taking cuba off of the terrorist list.
what is your sense of the dealings with cuba, the meeting happening right now and should cuba be taken off the terrorist list? >> my opinion is that this administration seemed to be negotiating what the other side wants first and then waiting to see what we need. that's true with the iranians i think in the framework and i think it's true with the cubans, whether they should stay on the terrorist watch list or not depends on what activity we have in our nsa files in terms of activity they're doing in spying and terrorism and things of that nature. that's a decision made by the nsa and the administration. >> and do you think that the opening of cuba and the increased relations we're seeing in this conversation taking place today is appropriate. >> it's appropriate if the cubans are making amends for what they did in the past the repatriation of the properties taken away by the cubans who fled to miami and south florida, what they've done in terms of human rights, labor rights individual rights. cuba needs to right itself before we make it right by some
diplomatic move. >> senator, good to have you on the show. >> see you soon. hillary clinton set to announce today will it be a democratic coronation or will others come forward and challenge the first lady? follow me on twitter twitter @mariabartiromo. stay with us as we look ahead on "sunday morning futures."

states." at least two democrats, lincoln chafee and lauren o'malley and jim webb hinted they will run against her and let's not forget ls while at the state department have yet to be addressed. byron york is with me cor correspondent for "the washington examiner." how do you assess what we're about to hear? >> she's going to run for president and i think her platform is going to be a lot about economic inequality and equality of opportunity. she in ""the huffington post"" published a new enloeg to her book last year and it's clear she's going to make inequality a theme of her campaign. it's equally clear there are a significant number of democrats up comfortable with the idea of a coronation. they'd like actual primaries and actual contest. look at the polls, hillary clinton is at 60%. that's very imposing, but that's 40% of democrats who, even when
she has the field to herself would like somebody else. >> we were just talking about whether or not this is a foreign policy election or an economic policy election. let's talk economics for a moment. i read your recent article and you sort of looked through the economy where we stand right now and the fact is over the last five or six or seven years 20% of the country has done better, and their wages have gone up. 80% have seen their wages go down. >> 80% is a lot bigger than 20% if you're running for president. >> yes, let's talk about income inequality. >> we have heard recently with the rise of isis and troubles in russia and syria, this might be a foreign policy election. we just had new figures from the labor department showing that between 2012 2013, 2014, the average income of americans all 80%, lower 80% went down during that period and by the way the incomes of the top 20% didn't go up very, very much. so it's very hard to figure out how you can have a foreign
policy election when the incomes of 80% of americans are going down at a time when we're supposedly in a recovery. >> but that is what the campaign platform is about, prosperity for you know every family, every person. is this going to resonate? >> she'll have a hard time. obviously she was barack obama's secretary of state. she is a democrat in effect running for obama's third term, and we're in this situation after eight years of president obama, so how is she going to campaign? she cannot really cut herself off from barack obama. she's going to have to say remember how bad shape we were in 2008. we were so deep in the hole president obama has brought us a long way but we still have a long way to go and i think that's the way she's going to try to finesse her connection with the obama record. >> it's really funny to hear president obama say "my friend." isn't it it obama and valerie jarrett threw her under the bus the fact she's using her personal e-mail for secretary of
state. >> they're likeable enough, hillary "my friend." i think what's important you saw some polls from some key states including iowa, florida and others ohio i think and they showed hillary clinton's trust, the trust worthiness to be rather low and i think what you're seeing and going to see with the e-mail scandal is news of a scandal breaks. we all cover it for 48 hours. there's a poll taken 48 hours later, shows no change and everybody says gee it didn't affect her. well it does. it takes a long time to sync in and out of the country and i think the e-mail problem and the more we'll likely learn about the e-mail problem is going to cause her continuing trouble in the race. >> what about the continuing trouble around benghazi. we just heard from senator isakson who wants to know more about why those people died, our ambassador was killed. does benghazi matter? will it matter? >> it does. trey gowdy, head of the select
committee on benghazi in the house says he'll call hillary clinton twice. the first time to talk about the e-mail matter because you have to remember, she has destroyed e-mails, withheld e-mails from congress at a time they were actively under request from congress. that is a problem right there. then there's the substance of it, and i think the benghazi investigation is beginning to focus completely on preparation what did hillary clinton know about the state of the dangerous state that our diplomats in libya work in. did she receive some of the memos and cables in which the diplomats said we are in trouble we cannot withstand a concerted atack. what did she know about that and what did she do about it. >> why didn't she do more and quicker. >> exactly. >> they're pushing chelsea clinton out there as well. >> one thing that is amazing for students of optics is this is the weekend the clinton campaign is rolling out mrs. clinton's clearly making inequality one of her major themes and at the same time it, her daughter chelsea
who is a top official in the clinton foundation, is appearing in "elle" magazine wearing jewelry and clothes by gucci, cartier and all expensive high-end brands so it seems an amazing lapse in optics to talk about inequality on one side and on the other side appearing on the cor of a fashion mag wearing all this expenseive bling. >> byron, thanks for talking to me. we'll look for your writings. tensions between saudi arabia and iran intensify as the conflict yemen only gets worse. this is just one factor that could impact what you're paying at the gas pump. the ceo of conoco-phillips is with me next as we look ahead on "sunday morning futures." fastidious librarian emily skinner, each day was fueled by thorough preparation for events to come. well somewhere along the way emily went right on living.
new developments in yemen as well, talks continuing on identity ran negotiations as well. that has created volatility in the oil markets, with oil prices back up. joining me to talk more about the volatility and what he's expecting as a result of these geopolitical events chairman and ceo of conoco-phillips ryan lance. nice to have you on the program. >> nice to be here. >> we talk about the ongoing talks with iran now we've got the june 30th deadline to look forward to and of course these new developments coming out of yellen. let me ask you about production out of libya and what you're seeing from your standpoint in the middle east. >> yes, so we're seeing a lot of volatility today maria. it's a terrible situation in libya. producer in our oasis not producing much oil out of libya. they are managing to hold it together ramping up a little bit
but not clearly up to the levels that they had pre-conflict. >> you've taken people out of libya, right? >> we have. we're operating libya from a remote location. we still have national employees in there monitoring our operations, we told them to hunker down and be careful about what they're doing. >> what do you think the mentality of the whole theme of the saudis is. they've been very clear they are not going to give up any market share, and yet they're talking about higher prices in asia, they're talking about putting the shale companies out of business in america. i don't know if we could believe that but that's certainly the speculation. what is behind the saudi decision not to actually you know, give on market share? >> well i think it is it's probably multifaceted. i think they probably are upset in some of the non-opec production growth that we've seen in the oil shale you describe in north america is one piece of that probably russian production and certainly i think you're looking closely at the iranian sanctions if they get lifted. it is a multifaceted strategy
but i think underground in what they're saying is we're not going to be the only ones cutting back when we're oversupplied in the marketplace today. we'll protect our market share. >> i want to ask you your take in terms of the u.s. and its ability to export oil and gas production. >> we're on the cusp of a tremendous opportunity for our country, with the slight oil revolution, the economic benefits coming through the national security, the geopolitical benefits can be quite dramatic. the one policy that the u.s. has that gets in the way of that is oil exports and we were just talking about saudi arabia. their favorite oil policy is the lack of exports from the u.s. there's a reason why they're not selling their crude for market prices and willing to discount the crude and bring it in to the united states to try to keep that export ban in place. >> do you think that export ban will be lifted? this is the talk right now in washington. >> well, i think it has to be. i think there are some marginal approaches that are taken. i think the common state exports are helping the swap conversations with mexico and canada are helping. maybe a little bit of incremental.
ultimately we have to repeal this ban. >> is there a break point number for the shale producers? i mean oil prices having come down 50%, when we were below $50 in the '40s people wondered if we'd she bankruptcy on the shale space. >> in the core and heart of the field it's very prolific and got a low cost of supply. in other words it can withstand $40 and $50 wti prices. as you move out and start developing the opportunities it gets more expensive, the reservoirs get thinner, the productivity is a lot less so it takes a higher price to develop those. there is hee a range. it's hard to answer the one cost of supply because it varies for each company. below 40 $45 it does reduce the amount of growth and investment that will go into that. lot of these need $07 $75 to be economic prolific and to attract the capital investment that it's been attracting. >> are we just at the beginning of an industry-wide cutback because of what has happened?
>> i think you're seeing that, the service companies are the leading indicator because the effort has dropped off. you see the big service companies cutting back. we're having to make some personnel reductions around the world. you see other companies announcing that as well. so yes that's coming and we're all watching to see how long does $50 or $55 oil persist. >> which is why we saw a major deal announced this week, shell oil acquiring bg group for $70 billion in cash and stock, a monster deal by anybody's standards. were you surprised? >> not as surprised. the companies have mutually attractive interests in gas and lng so it's not so much a surprise those two particular companies got together. you get surprised at the magnitude of that and the question, that opens up the floodgates on additional m&a activity. >> scale is winning in this industry. do you need to do a deal? >> with your business is $1.5 million a day growing to 1.7 million a day. on top of the reserved space on top of that.
we have size scale and scope all right. "a" credit rating, a good strong balance sheet, we can weather the storms. we feel comfort obl on the size scale and scope of the company and we have exploitable inventory so we have a lot of opportunities to grow well into the next decade. so for us doing a deal it would have to make a whole lot of sense. >> we'll be watching your three-year operating plan. i know that investors were very optimistic about it when you released it. thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you maria, it's always good to be here. >> good to see you. back to the worst kept secret on the planet next, hillary clinton set to afouns her 2016 run for president. so much talk with our panel, we will start there and look ahead on "sunday morning futures." back in a moment.
from america's news headquarters i'm eric shawn. here are stories making head lines at this hour. pope francis 100 years since the armenian massacre calling it "the first genocide of the 20th century." the pontiff honoring the estimated 1.5 million armenians who were slaughtered at the hands of the ottoman empire. jerp know says the pope's comments have posed a "conflict
of trust." the pope said it was his duty to honor the innocent men women and children who were called. >> a toddler at the zoo in cleveland a toddler falling ten feet into a chee in a pit. the 2-year-old boy's mother was hang dangling him over the edge. by the time the paramedics approached the parents had pulled the boy out. the toddler was treated for minor bumps and bruises. officials say the mother faces charges of child endangerment. i'll be back for a full hour of news as we await the anticipated aness announcment by hillary. back to "sunday morning futures" and maria. >> thank you, eric. is the story of the day, hillary clinton getting set to announce her presidential bid any time now. we want to get ready with our
panel, judith miller, pulitzer prize winning author and journalist and fox news contributor. her brand new book is called "the story: a report's journey" about the myths and realities on the buildup to iraq war. gary casperoff writer and political activist, chairman of the human rights foundation and jim grant, financial author and analyst. good to see everybody. thank you so much for joining us. okay, so we're going to probably see the tweets going around the world from hillary. what is your sense of hillary announcing today? >> i think she's going to have a huge problem overcoming both the bubble factor, not the bubba factor but the bubble. she's been just coddled for so long by the media. she's been such a star. how to reconnect with voters, this is not an easy task. it's really not. as well-known as she is she seems removed. she seems to play by different
rules than everyone else as we saw from the e-mail scan dal. this is not what you want just going into a campaign. can she get out of this? she's a superb veteran. i bet she will, but it's going to be not a coronation at all. >> gary, what do you think? as a strategist. >> i think they decided that they would rather have four months sort of off of this grace period when she will be dominating the field before the full gop debate because then she'll disappear. they have to decide how to keep her in public space because she's not a sitting president and i guess the gop debate will overshadow her. next four months we'll field every tweet and book page. >> will this election, jim grant do you think be about economic policy, foreign policy or something else? >> first of all we have to know which electronic dwois hillary tweeted on. >> i guess so. >> i think with respect to economics, the telltale fact is that she has consulted with no
fewer than 200 authorities on her economic policy, and she has yet to reach a conclusion. now, there are 200 economic authorities you have 201 opinions but it falls to a leader to form his or her own opinion and i think it's it is very hillary that she has done all this talking, all this listening, and can't come up with an idea. we know she wants to be president. we have no idea on what set of beliefs or convictions she stands. >> the campaign has put out sort of a campaign promise today, about inequality. >> it's 29 words into this and there is a fib and the fib begins "this campaign is not about hillary clinton." this campaign is all about hillary clinton. this is the second sentence of the press release. cubs fan yankees fan, like that. >> it's not about hillary clinton, it's about the average guy. >> the bedrock of values but the
question remains what are the values. >> it's going to be economic populism and i really think she's going to just zero in on that, the inequality theme will play. it's eye lez beth warren's theme but she is a centrist arguing it. i think it's a shwud choice. >> she and bill are worth what $50 million? >> that's a problem. inequality is i think it's one of the many ironies of this young campaign season. >> it's irony, she talked about inequality about average american and economic hardship and launching the most presidential campaign. >> look the fatigue is the big problem. people think they know her, she's been around forever. they're tired of her and the campaign hasn't even begun. >> right. >> i think the whole e-mail scandal really speaks to what you're talking about. people are frustrated with the fact that there are different rules and i wonder if this is going to be a factor. i don't think it would be a factor with her core.
her core base is in place. >> it won't be a factor with her core but it is going to be a factor in the election. you could already see her slide vis-a-vis the republican contenders for the presidential nomination. >> and if you look at the economic side of the story i mean, jim yes, this might be about inequality but let's talk about that then because the last six yoerz most americans have seen their wages go down. >> inequality is a fact of wealth, of income, opportunity and reminded of india during india's long dwindle the story took root there is something called the hindu rate of growth. indians were too passive so the government to participate in a growing economy and then came better policies, now under there bodi things are rather booming. there's always a back story. now we hear secular stagnation, very fancy polysyllabic phrase for lousy policies. this economy to use the technical phrase does stink.
and the reason in part is because of the government is heavy-handedly fixing things that ought to be determined by markets. there is a government interest rate, there is a government-issued bank, jpmorgan chase is in effect a nationalized institution. i mean, you can't tell walking around who are the regulators and who are the employees. one outnumbers the other. >> we'll talk more about this and i want to get your sense garry, in terms of the iran talks going on right now. stay with us. first what's coming up top of the hour on "media buzz." howie kurtz is standing by. >> good morning maria. we'll be all over hillary clinton getting into the presidential race, looking at coverage that ranged from breathless to mocking based on last night's "saturday night live" and we'll examine rand paul getting into the dust-ups with anchors and how that is affecting his campaign and a special in-depth interview with mariel hemingway. >> thank you so much howard.

one way. the deal with iran, we hear two opposite stories and not just about little things here or there. the fundamental differences in most substantial points of the deal, and then shook hands with raul castro. it should be a trade. shaking hands with a dictator, the hand covered with blood, there's still hundreds and hundreds of political prisoners in cuba. it seems obama wants his pr opportunities and he's defending his rotten policy attacking the gop and offering an olive branch to all american enemies and those who were attacking the values of the free world around the globe. >> you think the president can be more dangerous in the next 20 months than he has been -- >> i'm afraid the damage the administration can inflict to the long-term interests of the united states and the free world, it's still hard to calculate.
>> i think most americans even hispanic americans support the outreach to cuba. it's interesting the president wasn't able to do what he wanted to. he wanted a kumbaya moment. he wanted the victory salute' enraul on the stage in the summit didn't happen and now he says there's still differences. this say harder act than i think he thought. >> there's freedom and there is oppression right and i think garry's well made america stands for liberty. that is the point of this country and we can't impose it nor should we impose it but we ought not to be a party to the support of coercion and stateism and worse around the world and by remaining silent and by being complicit with theatrical devices by those who would
oppress and tyrnnize, obama is diminishing an ideal of america. >> i was just in cuba and i can tell you most pro-american people on the planet are cubans. >> of course. they yearn for liberty. >> the people want liberty of course. >> absolutely. >> to support them, not to offer more political capital to keep oppressing them further. >> there are a million cuban-americans in florida throughout this country who are the lifeblood of that country. his bet is once we have normal, more normal relations and end this excuse of the embargo, this regime is going to get weaker. that's his bet. >> isolation did not work. >> the policy of so-called normalizations with tyrants around the world it never works. it helped them to stay in power longer. that's a history lesson. >> what about iran? will congress be able to see this framework of a deal before
it's actually signed? >> i think this deal is falling apart. i was very, very worried by the fact that two conditions imposed that were not part of the framework agreement came from the ayatollah, and that is he said one, sanctions have to be lifted as soon as the ink is dry on the agreement. >> even before. >> even before we know whether or not it's being implemented and two, that there will be no inspectors at any military facility, when that comes from him, this agreement is in trouble. >> the president gave a press conference, said that we're making progress. we have a framework. so it just dwunt'oesn't add up. >> if these people negotiating on behalf of americans deal with iran, if they were working on wall street we would know they weren't as successful because they would be broke. in politics it's less clear-cut but this is negotiation toward bankruptcy. >> obama's framework is poor or even worse it's like a can. worms. we have to know more about the deal and he denies us, the
public, forget senate and congress for a moment the public to learn more about the deal. >> there is no deal yet, a framework garry. we have to wait and see what the deal is. >> i know what a frame is. >> the framework is the deal. the outlines of the deal. >> these outlines have been agreed upon 18 months ago and since that moment iran made substantial progress towards nuclear bomb, now it's two or three months away from the bomb. >> we had an interim agreement in effect which actually reduced their ability to break out, even israelis acknowledge that the interim agreement had been god, a good thing. so the issue is now what are begoing to lock in? i'm not sure the president can get where he wants to go by june 30th but we'll see. >> iran doesn't want the u.n. inspectors in from. >> exactly. >> you wrote a book about the lead-up to the war in iraq. >> right and how much we all got wrong but especially the
intelligence community and support reporters reporting on the intelligence. committee findings. we're about to make a deal with iran. how much does our intelligence committee really know about iranian intentions and capabilities and facilities. everything depends on that call being correct, so i wanted to look at the lead-up to the iraq war and see what we all did wrong to make sure we don't repeat those mistakes that includes me. >> it is a fundamental difference. saddam was confined within his border. iran is on the rise. it already dominates four arab countries and, four capitals, damascus, beirut, baghdad, and now yemen, sanaa, and it doesn't hide its intention to be the most powerful sort of regional country and its anti-american
and publicly said the destruction of israel is not negotiable. >> they want them off the map. hold that thought. >> that's the framework. >> hold that thought, we want to talk about economic as well the minutes of the last federal reserve meeting are out. when are interest rates going to rise? we have tax day on tuesday. we'll talk a lot with our panel on economic policy next, what that means for your bottom line. we're looking ahead this morning on "sunday morning futures." let's take a look at your credit. >>i know i have a 786 fico score, thanks to all the tools and help on experian.com. so how are we going to sweeten this deal? floor mats... clear coats... >>you're getting warmer... leather seats... >>and this... my wife bought me that. get your credit swagger on.

in terms of economic policy, let's talk about that. >> let's talk about this in plain english. there is a lot of learned discourse about the federal reserve or monetary masters and about the likelihood or not in our now invisible interest rates set. so when will they raise rates, when will they thenot. the fact we should ponder is that there's a question. why is it that the prospect of a rise in money market interest rate of 0.25 of 1% sets finance on its ear. why are things 6 1/2 years after the big fall so precarious that we're talking about the consequences of a rise in 0.25 of 1%? to me it speaks to the failure of the massive intervention of the post-lehman era, the failure of federally manipulated prices and asset values.
what we're seeing is demonstration of the in-efficacy of price control. they don't call it price control, but the federal reserve is in the business of muscling around stock, real estate and bond prices. it is in the business of virtually fixing short data interest rates like the so-called federal funds rate. how that experiment with capitalism, 00i'd like to see 24this from the republican donecontenders, turnover the right to price discovery. so the administration of our prices from washington, d.c., to me is the issue in the background. certainly is not something republicans are not likely to embrace. >> which is why rand paul, part of his campaign is audit the fed. >> rand paul needs to stop shushing women. that's the first thing.
>> let's assess the fields. we'll hear from marco rubio and hillary clinton. >> and not convinced on rubio getting in to the race against jeb bush. i think they could be working quietly together. rubio knows he won't get the nomination this time, but he might look really good in the vice president even though he comes from florida. he can't run again for the senate under florida rules. so his future is very open. he's very talented. he can deliver a lot of hispanic support. evangelical support. i think that would be a nice presence to jeb bush. >> let's take a short break. when we come back, the one thing to watch.
back with the one big thing to watch for the upcoming week. >> the president's foreign policy might be differences. cuba and iran to see whether or not the corporate bill to give congress final say gathers and holds democratic votes. and whether or not cuba comes off the terrorist list. >> we're all watching that for sure. >> whether marco rubio whether get any publicity. it will probably tell us more about the ability of the gop to withstand the avalanche. >> oil is very important not merely because of what one pays at the gas pump, but because so much debt has been laid up against oil prices. there's a jump on markets, a trillion plus outstanding and a lot of that is in energy. >> and of course we've already seen real moves. probably more cut backs there.
i'm watching earnings. big week. probably see earnings down because of the strong dollar. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. i'll be back tomorrow morning on opening bell on fox business network. this is a fox news alert. this is "#mediabuzz". hillary clinton finally jumping into the presidential race today. and fox news chief white house correspondent he haded henry is live. >> reporter: remember after the e-mail trouble started she gave this speech in washington where she talked about new beginnings that she's a new grandma, she wanted a new relationship with the media. but i can tell you in the last couple days, it's been the same old clinton team as we've tried to define how this rollout will play out, every last detail treated like a state secret. we have gotten a couple
