tv   Your World With Neil Cavuto  FOX News  December 28, 2015 1:00pm-2:01pm PST

1:00 pm
years ago. took awhile to catch on. looking at the old leave it to beaver clips, they're washing dishes by hand. and now neil. >> thank you, greg. i am neil cavuto and you're watching "your world." this map you're looking at right now was showing all way above average temperatures last week at this time. now after all these tornadoes ts and blizzards and flooreds we're looking at a situation that imperiled seven states, claimed 43 victims and we ain't done yet. we have this box going for you. tornado threating developing in clarksdale, mississippi. red oak, texas, already substantial, a disaster area claimed there. we have blizzards in roswell, new mexico, and amarillo, texas, on the bottom left of your jean, and the far bottom right, birmingham, alabama, where
1:01 pm
flashflooding is now all the rage. will carr is in texas where they're trying to recover from the first belt of that. we have janice dean on these as well. trace gallagher is picking apart the fallout from this that has not really begun. first now to will. >> reporter: one family whose home was hit by the tornado let us inside to show you all the damage. i'm actually inside of one of their bedrooms. you can see just how much damage there is in here as you walk around. the tornado hit this home ripping off the majority of the roof. you can see beams coming down over here. you can see a television just barely hanging on. going out into the hallway here there's insulation down on the floor, and then we want to take you into this bathroom to show you -- i mentioned the tornado ripped part of the roof off. you can see directly into the sky. the homeowner just gave us a tour. listen to what he told us. >> a couple seconds, a couple
1:02 pm
minutes ago your home is perfect, and couple minutes later, just everything was messed up. >> the fan is there but you look up and completely gone. >> everything, yeah, everything is completely gone, and good thing the kids was not here. >> reporter: authorities tell us they now have deemed that 100 homes here in rowlet have been a total loss, neil. >> incredible. thank you, my friend. by the way, it's not over. janice dean was on top of this today, telling me that the threat in a number of state is only growing. janice, what's the latest? >> you and i were talking, a wet wednesday before christmas. that was the beginning of the system that produced tornadoes and it continues now into monday. and you were talking about the warm temperatures. that is what is fueling some of these storms. the main ingredient is the clash of the two air masses so ahead of this arctic cold front, very warm temperatures.
1:03 pm
so, that is why we could see the potential for more severe weather today. you pointed out the tornado watch box for the panhandle, alabama, and georgia. then we have the cold side of the storm, which we haven't touched upon, and the threat for a foot to maybe two feet of snow across the midwest, and new england. so here's our tornado risk. thankfully starting to diminish, and tomorrow we think that the severe threat will definitely be mostly gone, which is great news. we don't have any warnings to tell you about, but we still have the risk for the area where we have a tornado watch, meaning conditions are favorable for tornadoes in the afternoon and evening. now, the cold side of the storm, heavy snow, and the risk for freezing rain and/or sleet, staying on the roadways, on the power lines and on bridges, which is going to make travel impossible. so, north of the chicago area, heading in towards the great lake and the mode atlantic, that ping area is the area of concern
1:04 pm
on tuesday, the freezing rain and sleet and then north of that, we'll see the block butter snow totals in some cases the biggest snowfall they have seen all year in new england. so there's the snowfall, again, 12 to 18 inches in some areas and then up towards new england. so we're not done with this system just yet, and i mentioned the ice in some ice, some forecasters saying quarter to half inch of ice on the roads and power lines. this could be very dangerous heading into tomorrow. >> thank you very much. as janice point ode out, particularly in chicago, with all the pressure they're facing, a number of flights already delayed. thousands of flights cancelled over just the last couple of days. trace gallagher with the latest on even if you're not in these areas, you are going to feel if you're trying to fly anywhere. >> you have this domino effect in full swing, causings hundreds of flight delays and cancellations across the country. you have to remember that even though most of the significant weather problems root now are
1:05 pm
happening in the midwest, the big airlines only have about five or six hundred planes each and if they're sit only the ground at chicago, it's going to cause backups even in warm weather cities like miami or los angeles. even last night, my producer had trouble flying from kansas city back to los angeles. he got in late last night but his brother was delayed for more than 24 hours. looking at the total numbers, across the country, 2,000 flights have been cancelled. more than 3,000 flights delayed. the biggest die lays and cancellations are happening at chicago o'hare because the planes all have to be dei.c.eed but there d-door iced and also something i ale job almosts in dallas, houston, denver, detroit, cannings city, and oklahoma city. so if you're flying, call ahead. and because of the flier's bill of rights more often that nobody airlines will preemtestifily cancel flights rather than take the chance of having a plane sit
1:06 pm
on the tarmac for several hours at a time. >> thank you very much. several of thieves states were already declare -- of these states were already declaring emergencies. that brings in fema to help out. fema is always this distressed entity that gets funding on a per-case basis. the president in his latest budget approved a nine percent increase in double funding for fema, billion dollars, but even that might not be enough to cover what seems to be a broad swath of storms in the latest go-round. we have the former fema director with us, michael brown. not so happy new year for a lot of folks in harm's way but can fema just cover all of this? >> well, fema will cover all of it because congress always steps in and congress will do whatever it takes to make sure that fema has enough money to cover this. but the thing that really fascinated me as i watched all of these storms develop is, number one, it proves that bloods and tornadoes can happen anytime of the year. doesn't have to be spring or
1:07 pm
summer. and number two, the other thing that -- every death is tragic, but when you consider that we have had six tornadoes and there were only nine deaths, that means that building codes, that evacuation procedures, warning systems, all of those, are doing what they're supposed to do and saving lives. so, now the issue is, how does fema come in? right now all of these folks are going to descend on the areas and doing initial damage assessments and then they'll make a report to the governor, the governor will make a request to the white house, maybe or maybe not, depending on the numbers, and fema may or may not step in. i think the most important thing for people to remember is this. their lives have been uprooted. many case homes destroyed. fema will not be able to and cannot under the law make them whole. they'll have to look to insurance, look to other ways. all fema can do is provide
1:08 pm
temporary assistance. they can obviously rebuild public schools, public entities, but in terms of taking care of individuals, it's pretty limited what they can do. >> so a lot of folks who seemed to fall back on fema, i might not have the adequate insurance coverage but fema will by me backstop. they'll have a rude awakening. >> they're going to have a very rude awakening. fema is kind of the checkbook of last resort. you might get some temporary housing. you might get some temporary rental assistance, but bottom line is this. i'm trying to drive down the expectations a little bit. fema is not and cannot make you whole again. that's why we need to look to private sector. insurance, make sure you have -- even if you don't have a mortgage, you should have insurance to cover these kinds of incidents. janice talked about the floods through the midwest. most -- no insurance company carries flood insurance, only the national flood insurance through fema, and if you're now being flooded, it's too late to
1:09 pm
get flood insurance, you need that before the flood occurs. so i guess i'm just trying to dampen down the expectations a little bit. >> i think of that and what happened in prior storms where a lot of folks said, flood damage of my open but precipitated by a tornado. there's no fine line for that, right? if a tornado called it but the damage was the result of flooding, you're not covered if you don't have float insurance. right? -- flood insurance. >> that's right, and many cases that becomes a political issue. i can remember times when we had those very kinds of questions arise, and congress would step in and say, but we know the regulations say this, burt we have so many people that have been damaged, we're still going to make you change the regulations and cover everybody. well, what that does is that completely messes up all the actuarial numbers you have, and in that precip tates a rate increase in the following year to cover the losses that weren't anticipated in the previous year. so the other thing that happens
1:10 pm
is -- which -- i know it drives you crazy, drive mets crazy -- sometimes these things become very political, and again, don't look to the government to make you whole. it just cannot do that. >> you know, michael, you remind me of the past about storms and mother nature are very indiscriminate and know no class boundaries. areas hit, garland area, a very well to do area so people say, must have been the trailer homes that were destroyed. the fact of the matter is this was indiscriminate in that the wealthy communities, poor communities, those with well-built structures, not well-built structures, caught up in the same fury. we forget that, don't we? >> with absolutely do forget that. and it's still -- ten years since i left fema and it is still vesseled -- still vivid any in memory, one part of town,
1:11 pm
million dollar homes, completely destroyed, and then you go to a lower class neighborhood and exactly the same thing happened. mother nature doesn't care. they don't care what your financial statement is. all mother nature -- mother nature doesn't care. just knows i'm blowing through here and if your house or business is it in the way. >> goodbye. >> too bad. >> thank you, michael. so tragic here, and reminder to you folks at home, we think about the inconveniences of the holiday season, christmas season, whether you got what you wanted to get, whether you had to wait in line for the items you got, whether they were delivered to your house at all and think of these folks who don't have a house. many of them who lost loved ones. it does put this season in some perspective. these people lost everything. i think they would happily switch with you who somehow did not get your prime customer package through. more after this. ♪
1:12 pm
hi mom! hi! every mom is a coach... an artist... sometimes even a zoologist. every mom is a working mom... and it's working moms everywhere who inspired us to work harder. so we made our banquet meals even better. with mashed potatoes now made with real cream and chicken strips with 100% natural chicken breast. so now, there's more to love with banquet. now serving... a better banquet.

1:15 pm
we only have a couple of more days of trading left in this year and it's looking spooky for traders who want to see an up 'er on the day and s&p. both are in negative territory because when it comes to the dow we have not finished a year out in negative territory -- a loss for the year -- since 2008, as the meltdown was gripping america and the world. that was then. could this be the first down year since? we go to fox business network's gerri willis with a read from the pros. >> we were lead low, dow town 24
1:16 pm
opinions, crude posting the lowest level in 11 years, chevron and ex-on lead -- exxon leading the dow lower. can the dauphin issue, the dow finish positive? we're down 1 pointle% and why is that so important? the dow is on track for the first loss in a pre-election year in 76 years, not since 1939 has the dow been negative in a pre-election year. and let me tell you the trends are strong. typical trend in an election year, up 5.8%. post election, only up 2%. take a look at this. we're way, way off that 10.4% level. a lot of people will be watching this in the coming days but it's up likely the market could rebound to those levels because involve is really light on the exchanges. not a lot of people here. it's quiet. not a lot of people trading.
1:17 pm
but could be a trend that doesn't seem like a good one. it's been six years since we have had a negative year, and remember, 2013, we were up 26.5%. last year up 7.5. sounds so good today. back to you. >> thank you, gerri. for the dow that would be a 300-point advantage to escape that down year fear. but still a couple of days to do it. you heard of candidates being asked to take a purity test, loyal to their party or loyal to the republican party. very rarely do you hear voters having to sign on to the same pledge inch virginia it's the case and already riling a number of independent voters some unaffiliated voters who want the freedom to vote in virginia's primary because, well, they want. to they want the same rights they have in new hampshire, donald trump has already questioned the fairness of this
1:18 pm
and said whether it's men to be a veiled effort to then him or majorrallize him. jamie, exactly what is virginia doing here? >> well, virginia is kind of an open primary state generally. primarily because the don't require people registering to vote to register as a party or don't allow for it. what the state party in virginia is trying to do is to make you sign basically a pledge when you go to the ballot box to say you are republican before you vote, which in effect would create a closed primary just for republican voters, those who are honest and stay they're republican voters. >> could you lie about it? say, yeah, sure, i'm a result you know what i mean? >> it's not clear to me exactly what the penalty would be for lying or even how they would track it down, but let's say you're an honest person, coming to the ballot box. if you errants republican maybe you just would not vote if that is the requirement.
1:19 pm
>> we got a quote from the executive director of the republican party of virginia, and the jest the to committee set a reasonable threshold to participate in 2016 republican presidential primary, signing your name to a simple statement that reads: my signature below indicated i'm a republican. but donald trump might have a point, would he not to say, i've been trying to expand the party base. people they ever voted republican before or at all, i'm bringing them into the mix, and now you're throwing those people out of the mix. bad new, g.o.p. what do you think? >> i think it's fair for any party apparatus to decide who can vote in their primary. however, establishing this right now does seem like a clear shot at donald trump. the candidate who is most likely to draw in independents, and even maybe pop pop list democrats into the primary in virginia. this is attendant by the party to limit donald trump's effect
1:20 pm
in the state. >> i've not seen poll neglect state. i imagine similar to other states, very well, with the exception of iowa where it's neck and neck with senator ted cruz. who would be the beneficiary if he stumbles as a result of these new rules? >> well, i guess anybody who is the nondonald trump -- what some call the establishment, i think sometimes unfairly, candidate, i think going into virginia. but remember this. there's a theory out there that donald trump could be something like a jesse ventura was in the 1990s in honest, where he drawness voters who haven't voted before and independents and democrats to vote for him. i if you limit who can vote in the primary in virginia, just to republicans, that would hurt him trying to get that appeal to those voters. so it seems he would be most affected negatively by this rule. >> all right. jamie, thank you very much. the trump folks have caved it's not fair, not right and they plan to tackle this. we'll see where that goes. you have heard of the iraqi
1:21 pm
city of ramadi. when it fell the iraqi soldiers were left running, turning tail, on a force they vastly outnumbered, isis recruits and terrorists, you could imagine the sweet revenge today when they re-took ramadi. those iraqi soldiers with american guidance. now what? if isis is on the run, how are we going to run them out of every town? after this. ♪ (vo) some call it giving back. we call it share the love. during our share the love event, get a new subaru, and we'll donate $250 to those in need. bringing our total donations to over sixty-five million dollars. and bringing love where it's needed most. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru.
1:22 pm
but he's a chaos candidate. jeb bush: donald, you know, is great at the one-liners. and he'd be a chaos president. two months ago, donald trump said that isis was not our fight. donald trump: let syria and isis fight. why are we... why do we care? let isis and syria fight. jeb bush: he said that hillary clinton would be a great negotiator with iran. donald trump: hillary's always surrounded herself with very good people. i think hillary would do a good job. jeb bush: and he gets his foreign policy experience from the shows. chuck todd: who do you talk to for military advice right now? donald trump: well, i watch the shows. i mean, i really see a lot of great, you know, when you watch your show and all of the other shows... jeb bush: i don't know if that's saturday morning, or sunday morning. donald, you're not going to be able to insult your way to the presidency. that's not going to happen. if i'm president, i'll be a commander-in-chief, not an agitator-in-chief or a divider-in-chief... that i will lead this country in a way that will create greater security and greater safety. announcer: right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message.

1:24 pm saving humanity from high insurance rates. well, maybe those iraqi soldiers we have been just vilifying, saying they're not up to the task, run away from isis, the memorable scenes where they threw down thunder guns and didn't take on isis recruits. that was then, and ramadi. this is now. those same soldiers -- not the
1:25 pm
same ones who ran but iraqi elite soldiers, taking control of things in ramadi and winning back the city. u.s. defense secretary ash carter already congratulating the iraqi government's progress in retaking ramadi. albeit with a little american help. to general jack kean in washington. we'll get into different polls. a lot of americans are saying isis has the upper hand here, particularly when it comes to the administration's battle plan with taking on isis. what due you make of this ramadi victory today? >> well, first of all, it is a step in the right direction. no mistake. i understand the american people's concern because they're just looking at some facts now that they've been seeing for almost a couple of years, which is isis controls a large swath of territory, although they lost some today. they've expanded into seven other countries and the reality is they have a global strategy where they're using their followers to kill their fellow citizens in lebanon and turkey
1:26 pm
and france. russian airliner and now in the united states. so that's what has got the people concerned, that the problem doesn't seem to be going away, they seem to be expanding, and the american people have that right. what happened here in ramadi, neil good, step the right direction, clearly forces are trained, performed adequately. we gave them some equipment that was critical to them dealing with isis. that is antitank weapons. our air campaign was more effective. we can feel good about this but we're a long way, neil, from going to mosul, in the northern part of iraq, second largest city in iraq and we have no plans -- i say again -- no plans to security raqqa, syria, which is the capital of isis. >> so, isis is still on the run but they could be running and controlling these cities in mosul, 300 miles away from ramadi. so does come back to a question that has been asked a lot about isis and whether, like cockroaches they just move out
1:27 pm
to other regions. that might explain why it is such cynicism. a cnn poll shows that the majority of americans are not very confident the president's plan is working, six out of ten disapprove of it, and this only a day or two after fox poll that showed similar numbers showing that when it came to the president's strategy on isis, americans were not impressed. could this change things, though? could the president point to this and say, well, take a look at that. take a look at what happened in ramadi? >> certainly they will do that and have some justification. take some pride about what took place here. there was a humiliating, embarrassing defeet fear seven months ago where the iraqi arm and police rap from -- ran from isis. what is happening to the american people, it's occurring to them we have to have a sense of urgency to deal with this problem because they have followers around the world. so that's number one, and we
1:28 pm
don't seem to be demonstrating the-under general general si, number two, it's okuing to the american people we have a generational problem with radical islam and yet we have not organized an alliance to deal with that. so after you deal with al qaeda i can like in poise, and deal with isis, which we will deal with, we'll have another problem if we don't face the generational aspect of this ideology and get organized to deal with that in a strategic way. >> the stigma might have come off isis that they're so threatening and intimidating, given the success. we can rethink, hey, we needn't be terroristed by the terrorists. they can be beaten, right? >> absolutely. let's look at the facts. the kurds -- every battle they have fought with isis, supported by american air power, they have ron they reclaimed their northern territory in syria and in iraq. we have had in support of the iraqi army some shia militia and
1:29 pm
police paramilitary forces forcd taken an oil refinery and now ramadi. those are positive steps and shows you that isis is not ten foot tall. we can defeat these guys when we have people, one, willing to fight, as you suggest, got be willing to fight, have to have skill and some air power to support them. >> you're right on every count, general. thank you very much. happy new year to you. >> happy new year to you, neil. good talking to you. >> same here. a lot of people are looking at the emergence of donald trump atop the polls and saying republicans are in for a world of hurt, especially if it leads to a brokered convention. then i was thinking of historian doris goodwin to get a sense that isn't all disastrous, fellow named abraham lincoln survived that nicely. we go way back in time right after this. i accept i'm not 22.
1:30 pm
i accept i'm not the rower i used to be. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't accept is getting out there with less than my best. so if i can go for something better than warfarin, i will. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. that really mattered to me. 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.
1:31 pm
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. i accept i don't have to set records. but i'm still going for my personal best. and for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.

1:34 pm
not that we showcase ourselves here but you might have heard me mention once or twice that fox business network is hosting another presidential debate in south carolina in a couple of weeks, and i was thinking, knowing my special be would be doris-concern -- doris kerns goodwin, and now that was the same stay that was home to the 1860 republican convention. one that was a brokered convention, saved in the end by the third ballot this guy, abraham lincoln, won. could lightning strike twice for republicans who fear have too many in the race and no mathematical way for a guy or woman to get the delegates necessary to secure a first ballot nomination? what do you think?
1:35 pm
>> it's so interesting you go back to 1860. my first mine is to go back 1912 when two republicans ran against one democrat and the democrat one. but you're right in 1860, before the primary system, delegates win to the convention had their favorite guy, and lincoln wasn't the number one favorite guy, probably most of the delegates. stewart was, and he knew if it was stewart it would be chase, or bates, and then he so smartly told the delegates, if you can't have your first love, come to me as the second love. and he hadn't attacked any of the other three candidates so was the only one who hadn't hurt their man. and there's a lesson, and we get the greatest president of all time from that convention. >> one thing in the 1912 case, what emerged after that it was
1:36 pm
teddy roosevelt, and president taft, they divided the woodrow will son -- wilson to get in. bar that scenario, people look at the possibility of protecterred convention and i say they're always damaging. we know in the 1860 example, not always the case. so, do you thing that there is a likelihood we could be looking at that and then the fallout for republicans? >> i think everything is so topsy-turvy this year that it don't think we can simply say, no, no, if it's not one thereof those sanitized conventions where everybody loves one another, it's going to be terrible, because it also could create even more excitement. look how troubling in some ways the debates have been. the republican candidates have been against each other or a rule that ronald reagan said, never speak against your own republican party, and yet the interest in debate and? politics has grown, so i don't know whether it's just part of the culture right now, that
1:37 pm
desire to see people really fighting each other because there's anxiety out there, so it's conceivable, if it could work itself out, it would mean if somebody gets to a brokered convention that nobody got a majority through the primary system, and given the number of candidates, and maybe the number of viable candidates who can keep funding themselves between their own money and the super pacs, it may not be that iowa and new hampshire undo the deal as they always have in the past. >> i've looked at the math of this. i'm the resident nerd here at fox. just what i do. >> it's a good thing to be. >> i was crutching the numbers, and i cannot see a see narrow by which one -- scenario by which one candidate will rise in cleveland with the delegates necessary. they've might momentum but not enough to close the deal. our recent experience with such conventions, they're hellish on the party that has to endure them. we think of 1968 with the democrats, and we go back in time and think of raucous and how divisive it ills. a lot of it depends on people
1:38 pm
kissing and making up. if it's not a donald trump and a concept sunday candidate emerges, among the people still running or an establish. figure out there, do you envision everyone kumbiyaing after that and moving forward? >> it depends on whether or not there really is a consensus candidate. in the old days people who would broker the conventions would be the party bowlses because they had control over advertising and pamphlets and control over money. who are they now? that is the real problem. if you go into a situation and you simply have receive factions that are against each other and don't want the other person work is the magical character who brings them together? it's much harder to imagine but not impossible to assume it might happen somehow and then we have to figure out what would happen when that it happens. >> with always talk about passion. barack obama, passionate supporters, some who had not voted but were inclined to vote
1:39 pm
we learned the numbers didn't belie with youthful voters but did with minorities. the argument for trump, whatever he might risk losing with latino voters and women voters, they argue they're bringing in all these voters who never voted republican or voted at all. the flannel flyover country, that heretofore has not been engage it but will be this year. more than offsifting what me might lose in traditional row speak. what do you make of that? >> if he could bring together what might have been old democratic voters, some blue collar voters-independent voters work are feeling anxious about the economy, feeling they want somebody with optimism. one thing trump has had going for him is he is so positive about himself, that he almost projects that positivity on to the voters who want somebody who is going to be able to do something, and when he says,
1:40 pm
make america great again, it somehow if you look at the polling, it has established itself. i think the real question for trump will be, does he have the ground game and the organizational spirit out there to match his polls? if we had a national primary month the republican head would be the winner but our system doesn't work that way. i. when tip o'neill, there was a woman in his neighborhood who thought he was a friend and she said i didn't vote for you. he said why? she said you didn't ask me to vote for you. i'm wondering whether in iowa and new hampshire if that ground organization has not been created and he loses both of those states, then will that same optimism he feels about himself be continued? will he still be able to get up the with the body language that per said people he will deal with their problems, and i think that's the key for him, whether or not he has down enough work -- done enough work in those states. >> part of that person to person
1:41 pm
contact has been -- a whole knew style of politicking that succeeds but to hear chris christie say you got press the flesh, got to do that. i'm just wondering if it turns out that the donald trump can succeed not doing that, then it would change the rules for everything. right? >> i think it would. if he succeeds or if me mapping's to seed without winning iowa, or even without winning in a big way new hampshire, or even losing that, then everything is up-ended and is much more of a national situation going on. then you get the big states coming down and may mean that the power of those two first states will be reduced. but we're still a long way from when the person goes into a booth and take that lever rather than just answering a poll question. but there's no question i could not have predicted where we are now and i don't think any of us could. so i think it's easier for know look back to 1860 than to look
1:42 pm
ahead to 2016. >> i hear you there. doris, it's a real pleasure. hope you have a very safe and happy new year. >> thank you, same to you, neil. thank you. >> a lot could change in the information few weeks. i don't know if you have any holiday gifts because you weren't psyched over, didn't really -- you were rifling through the packages and didn't see one hickory farms basket and now you want to return stuff. easier said than done. we'll help you out after this. this is the one place we're not afraid to fail. some of these experiments may not work. but a few might shape the future. like turning algae into biofuel... technology for capturing co2 emissions... ...and cars twice as efficient as the average car today. ideas exxonmobil scientists are working on to make energy go further... matter how many tries it takes. energy lives here.

don'ts. a lot of folks are interesting in doing that, there are basic rules oses thumb? >> we're talking about $60 billion of merchandize to be returned over the next couple of weeks. you're right, a lot of merchandize that's going to be out there. so, i basically advise a lot of people to do the following, which is the first one is to check the return policies. when you're going into the stores, a lot of the return policies are different than before the holiday season. sometimes they are extended into january 31st and you have more time. sometimes they're not. so make sure you're checking that. also, in my house it's like a receipt storm that is happening. so i don't know about your house or other people's homes but i tell people to take pictures of their receipts. never know when you might lose that -- >> really? >> yes, and it's on your phone. so you take your gift back or the merchandize you don't want and you have it on your phone and can submit that as that
1:47 pm
receipt. also you want to make sure that you are looking at those restocking fees. that basically means if you're getting an electronic item, a lot of these stores, best bay, for example, charges you up to 20% to 30% in restocking fees. so that means -- >> 20% to 30%? >> that's a lot of money. >> that's highway robbery. what are they restocking? gold? >> they're restoking electronics and want to make sure they can sell that or resell it to a different retailer, and so what they'll do is charge you a percent. so make sure you're getting that value. and also i tell people to negotiate. we don't really dot that is in this country and it's tote low viable to go into a store, especially at this point when retailers are trying to get rid of merchandize to go in and negotiate and tell people i don't have my reef -- receipt, any way to get store credit for this or get the product at the
1:48 pm
same value, and i wanted to add, which isn't my list of things, but you should also go in and instead of -- a lot of times you go up to registers now and you have been seeing people swipe their card as opposed to dipping youch make sure you're dipping your card, because it has the chip card on there keeping yourself safe. so you to the that is my wheelhouse and into antiidentity theft and fraud and that's going to keep your card safe. i have been work with the american bankers association. so you want to -- >> be careful. my view on returns, if i can't eating it, i don't want it. so i got a lot of stuff i can't eat so i want to return it but don't want to go back to the store where a loved one bought it. just want to return it to another store and lie. can i do that? >> you, you absolutely can't do that. you have to go to the store if you want to make sure you get that full price on that, or you can always hit -- go to a site
1:49 pm
like ebay and resell it there or craigslist. >> but i'm losing money. >> you will. >> i want to argue i paid twice as much as i said. >> i'm sure you could get your assistant to return the items. >> really? let me see what she is up to. thank you very. those who got in the stuff, i still like it. lots. all right. when we come back, did you hear bit about peyton manning in caught up in a story that might have been a sham and now, now, he might be suing the news organization that put the story out. guess what was the news organization? al-jazeera but i just got on the tip of the football here. it gets better after this.

1:53 pm
it's completely fabricated, complete trash, garbage. there's more adjectives i would like to be able to use, but it really makes me sick. >> this bronco is charging, right now peyton manning, saying he could be pursuing a legal case against al jazeera, the network to show that he and other athletes were using athletic-performing drugs. al jazeera is kind of left holding the bag here and now peyton manning says he could be ready to sue. we're saying he does have a case, but lisa is saying not so sure. why not so sure? >> he has to prove malice. he's a public figure, and there has to be intent to harm manning.
1:54 pm
the intent wasn't to harm manning, it was to get al jazeera on the air and get them an audience. they did go on air and pulled the story, they did issue a retraction, so there aren't even any damages here. but i think he feels the need to say something, and everybody always screams lawsuit. >> well, emily, you feel a little bit different in this case because his name was dragged through the mud, and even though a lot of this is taken back, it's too late, right? >> lisa made some fair points, but there are things that apply dle directly to peyton's case. al jazeera is headquartered in new york, and in new york state, if you defame one another in terms of their profession, you don't have to pay damages. there have been numerous successful suits from public figures against publications
1:55 pm
including cameron diaz and keira knightly who won millions of dollars in retribution saying that these statements hurt their career. the same would apply for peyton manning. >> i don't see any damages, and i differ with the actual malice standard in new york. you have to prove actual malice or disregard. in this case they did have a source. they did, at the very least, have some information that the source was indeed licensed as a pharmaceutical cyst inte pharmacist intern, sigh studeo who was working -- >> they said they relied on a source. >> they did have a source. but respectfully, where they failed was the corroborative element. so if you pin your hat on one single source and fail to do the due diligence to ensure that that source is authentic and genuine in that report, then you failed as a news outlet. i understand about the malice,
1:56 pm
but the court does not automatically accept that. >> they knew that some of these guys were not guilty, but they rushed to get it out there. you know what i'm saying? you have to be careful. >> you got to watch your sources, and i think honestly, it wouldn't have made it to anywhere near fox news or that kind of a standard. you have to look where it's coming from. but in the eyes of the law, you still have to meet the standards. and the standard doesn't require that an organization do due diligence to get a story. the standard requires that they have a source, that they have an authority, that if they realize the information is false, it is not true, that they do a retraction. and that kind of protects al jazeera. could he go after the one who lied about him, the publication, the reporter? sure, but what does he get? he doesn't get damages. that guy will probably already
1:57 pm
lose his license. >> we'll see what happens. i want to thank you both for taking your time with this. we are watching the ice storm that's now gripping the same area that was hit by all those tornadoes. it goes from bad to worse. last week at this time, so warm. now this.

hello, everyone, i'm kimberly guilfoyle along with greg gutfeld, dana perino, juan williams and eric bol iling. and this is "the five." is bill clinton fair game in the white house? he's fighting back against the recent accusation of sexism with the reminder of her own husband's record with women. >> i think he is fair game because his presidency was really considered to be very troubled, to put it mildly, because of all the things that she's talking to me
