"talking points" will lay it out. >> they are not properly vetted, you have extreme bedding proposal. as a result, the implementation, we have seen some problems. problems. >> bill: even some republicans are critical of mr. trump for not explaining the anti-terror problem clearly. >> bill o'reilly wants to know how you think this country is doing right now. >> also, ahead, we are in california this evening, where jesse watters is causing some
trouble. >> is bill o'reilly fair and balanced? >> i'm going to stay out of the fight with bill. i wish you nothing but the best. >> bill: caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. from california, "the factor" begins right now. ♪ >> bill: hi, i am bill o'reilly, reporting from los angeles. thanks for watching us tonight. extreme venting, that is a subject as of this evening's "talking points." president trump's executive order stopping the flow of your refugees into the usa until a new system of evaluations can bt into place is causing major dissent. let's examine this situation in a fair way. last year, about 85,000 refugees were admitted to the country, nearly half of them muslim. that does not count tens of thousands of people who claim refugee status crossing the southern border.
about 19,000 syrian refugees were admitted during the past few years. trump administration believes it is too easy for refugees from tarot areas to come here. stopping citizens from syria, iran, iraq, libya, sudan, somalia, being processed for at least 90 days. it cites the refugee chaos in europe and the violence that it has caused as evidence more vetting is needed in america. indeed, liberal countries like sweden have cracked on hard on migrants entering, a myriad of problems. it is worth stating for the record that the flow of mostly muslim refugees would not be happening had president obama and the west not retreated from the middle east and north africa, allowing isis and the syrian dictator assad to murder at will. that is what this is all about. also, i bet you didn't know this, president obama stopped most refugees from iraq from coming to america in 2011.
>> barack obama put a pause for six months on refugees coming from iraq back in 2011. i don't remember protesters and i i don't remember lawsuits. so, i think the bigger question, if this is a temporary pause, which is designed for us to improve and look at our vetting processes and temporary, i don't think that is an outrageous idea. >> bill: here in the usa, we have had our share of migrant terror. all 19 muslim colors on 9/11 walked on in here, so, to the boston marathon murderers, muslims from central asia. one of the san bernardino colors was from pakistan. the orlando mass murderer came from a muslim immigrant family, as are the terrorist to attach the mall in minnesota. it is certainly responsible and logical for a new president to institute updated protections for this country by ordering specific, temporary immigration actions. is it not? however, it is also responsible
for a federal judge to order that foreigners with the repot for credentials already issued not be punished. there should be room for a case-by-case decision making. as republican senators mccain and graham have requested. if muslims from tarot areas have helped the usa, they should obviously be given waivers. in addition, it would be wise for the trump administration to develop a strong outreach to the muslim world. we need their support to defeat the. in the past, "talking points" has proposed that nato troops set up safe zones for innocent people threatened in places like syria. right now, turkey, turkey, is overseeing many of the refugee camps. led by america, nato should assist turkey, georgia, rat, anr countries, willing to protect innocent people at risk. coming up, president trump is being responsible, setting up a new refugee standards. as long as they are fully explained, and expedited in a timely manner.
we don't want to tarnish the message the statue of liberty sends. also, the administration must be willing to grant exceptions and above all, should help refugees that survived in the terror zones abroad. we should do that. protecting americans is obviously priority number one but the nobility of our nation demands we help suffering, helpless people, if we can. and that is "the memo." now, for the top story reaction, joining us from washington, charles krauthammer. the big picture is what i want to talk to you about. the vetting itself, the extreme bedding as mr. trump calls it, that is not a bad thing, is that? >> no. but what you have to have is a policy that you bet before you loosen on the world and the most amateurish botched way. i mean, it is utterly ridiculou ridiculous, first of all, to give no guidance, as to what you do with someone holding a green card.
then, you change the gardens. you should have stated from the beginning, if you have a green card, you are not going to be stopped. they were stopped. that should never have happened. >> bill: so, -- >> it is not only that they rush it, they did it in a terrible way. in theory, of course, you want to have a strengthened vetting process, a new administration should have a chance to review procedures. but you don't announce that you are going to all of a sudden have a new process and to stop everybody who is already flying already in the air with a valid visa and stop them when they land. what you do is you say -- >> bill: that was a mistake. but i think 24 hours later, that mistake was largely corrected. so, we don't have that now. there are new guidelines now. right? >> right. but i am saying, what about people who worked for us during the war in afghanistan and iraq,
as interpreters -- >> bill: they are going to be light in. >> why wasn't that announced from the beginning? >> bill: it was rush. they did it too fast. >> what is the rush? are we getting a huge influx of somali terrorists? tell me. where is the issue? >> bill: here is what the rush is? >> in the 16 years since 9/11, we haven't had a single attack where an american has been killed on american soil by anybody coming from these lands. the seven countries. so, what is the rush? >> bill: you see what is happening in your outcome like that with the justification. look, i wouldn't have rush it. i am just telling you that the initial mistakes seems to have been corrected within the 24 hours. the bigger picture is this. president trump believes that his base is fine with all of this and that the people who are
demonstrating at the airport, the people who hate him, no matter what he does, all right, are actually helping him build political power, because most americans in the middle are saying, you know what, this is an overreaction, this is kind of insane. let trump come at least give them a chance to institute these things. i agree with you, he could have done it more methodically. but i think the bigger picture is that the president believes he is building a stronger political base by fulfilling campaign promises. >> i don't think that is going to succeed. look, he was elected by 46% of the population. that is not a terrible thing. lincoln got less. but nonetheless, it is not a majority. and do you want to build out from that majority. what he is doing is antagonizin antagonizing, not just the haters, who would never support her no matter what, , the hollywood left, we are not appealing there. we are talking about ordinary
folks who support the idea, for example, of the vetting process. >> bill: do you believe that this order, i think i depart from you on this, but i could be wrong -- you believe that this order has alienated more people then would cheer him for it? i think that most americans are saying, okay, we understand it wasn't done in the best way, but we supports -- >> why shouldn't you do something in the best way? >> bill: you should but nobody is perfect. >> the idea that nobody can do a headcount on this -- you are saying, the way to govern is to antagonize people, to botch your policies, to rub people's noses in it? >> bill: i would have announced a big muslim outreach along with a policy on this, as a clearly stated in the "talking points." >> it was very amateurish. the point is, this is not how you gain support, by botching
the announcement and the implementation. >> bill: i am not so sure about that. i think -- i know that trump supporters are applauding him, and i think that the people in the middle are saying, we are getting a little fed up with these demonstrations. last word. >> i think what they are saying is, you know, we are america, we do welcome refugees, we have liberated more suffering people in wars for the last hundred years than any country in history. we are proud of that. why should we act contrary to that for no particular reason? we are not safer today than we were a week ago. and that is the point. >> bill: all right. charles, good debate, as always. next on "the rundown," more terrorists in canada. also, president trump is said to name his supreme court tomorrow night during the factor. brit hume on that as we continue from los angeles, california, . runs on intel?
♪ >> bill: continuing out the lead story, extreme vetting to prevent terrorism in the usa. as you know may know, six people are dead and 17 others hurt after a college student allegedly shot up a mosque in quebec, canada. justin trudeau calling it a terror attack on muslims. there is no question that the spectrum of terrorism worldwide. joining us as mary anne marsh and katie pavlich. the key to this executive order on certain geographical areas to the usa, katie, as mr. trump's opinion of europe, and what has happened in europe, with the flood of refugees, many from syria, and to those countries, and all of the social problems that have developed, quickly developed, he is basically
saying that it is not going to happen on my watch and i'm going to shut those things down before it even starts to happen. that is what i think is behind it. what say you? >> that is what sean spicer argued at the white house briefing today, as well. donald trump wants to be on offense when it comes to dealing with these threats, not always on defense after these things happen. you had stephen miller this morning on "fox & friends" citing the attacks in europe that we have seen with the trucks running people over in the streets. yes, i think it comes from that. i think it also needs to be reiterated that the trumpet penetration could be seven countries from the obama administration that identified these countries as hot spots of terror. could there be more countries on the list? sure. turkey has ices running around all over the place, pakistan is where the sand burn problem came from. there are some things that can be changed. i think he is seeing what happened in europe, the challenges that angela merkel has been having in germany, the race epidemic in sweden, saying, let's prevent that from happening here.
i think taking isis at its word rent saying that they are hiding fighters in the refugees stream, whether it is greece into europe or through the system we have here in the united states. >> bill: marry anne, i don't think the donald trump cares about the demonstrations, and i think he believes it actually helps him because people are going to get fed up with it, everything he does, and here we come out to the streets again. that will draw may be nonpolitical people or middle people over to his camp. i think that is what he is thinking. >> you are probably right. but that is pretty shortsighted. too political. i think that is the problem. he is more interested in keeping a campaign promise that he has protect national security. in the haste from a poorly conceived, poorly executed plan, that did not have to be done this weekend. you combine it with this campaign rhetoric on race and especially, religion, specifically, the muslims, that is why everybody believes this ban is not temporary. they think it will be much longer if not permanent.
they don't believe it is not targeted at muslims, based on this program. what he said during the campaign. that has undercut everything. when you go back to your "talking points," bill, he didn't do one thing -- >> bill: mary anne. putting aside the intelligentsia and the people you hang with in cambridge, massachusetts, how meant -- >> i don't hang in cambridge. [laughs] >> bill: working class people. really, going home going, gee, those poor muslims in iraq and iran, they should be able to come here. come on, mary anne. it's not a major topic. security is but it is not a major topic among the working class people in america. it's not. >> most working-class people in america aren't that far removed from being immigrants themselves. the mayor of boston, for example, is the son of an immigrant. >> bill: there is a mass uprising about putting restrictions temporarily on muslims. >> here is what most people in this country care about, that we are a good country, we have let
everybody in here. we are founded by people fleeing religious persecution and when they see the chaos that happened because of this plan and frankl frankly, the half truth about all of this, about obama, that the corrections, and the fact that james kelly -- bill, talking about this, tells you everything. >> bill: katie. >> can i just respond to a couple of points that have been made. to argue that this was donald trump making sure that national security is at risk as a result of keeping a campaign promise is a little bit laughable considering the entire reason we have ices in the first place is because barack obama wanted to keep a campaign promise, a political process to leave iraq too early. that's the first print. a second point is, we have to clear up, this is not a muslim ban. there are christians in iraq, syria, libya, a number of these countries that are on the list, that the state department, under barack obama, declared her under genocide from ices.
guess what? as christian refugees or refugees, they were turned away last week. this is a blank into band. it's not a muslim ban. >> bill: katie, perception is reality, unfortunately, and our society. >> that is why we are here to talk about the facts. those are our facts. >> bill: that is why we are on the air and we get in norma's ratings. a lot of people are buying into that. i got to go. >> that's not true. >> last one, bill. if this was really about national security, kelly would have been briefed on it and he was not. >> bill: all right. the muslim outreach is what the trump administration needs to do right now. directly ahead, tomorrow night, during "the factor" hour, president trump is said to say the supreme court nominee. we think you know who it is. and later, watters causing trouble in california. coming right back. after expanding our fiber network coast to coast.
>> bill: "watters' world" segment tonight. president trump's pick for the supreme court. apparently, he will announce it tomorrow and the "the factor" hour. 49-year-old neil gorsuch, currently sitting in colorado. two other judges are currently under consideration, william pryor from alabama, thomas hardiman, who works in pennsylvania. it is george neil gorsuch who seems to have the inside track. joining us now from florida, brit hume. first of all, can the democrats block president trump's choice? >> yeah, they can, bill. if they filibuster it, the republicans don't have 60 votes, which is what you need to shut on a filibuster. they only have 53. if a filibuster were mounted, it wouldn't halt the consideration of the nomination until it ended. it could be ended if the republicans were able to round
up seven democrats to vote with them. they could shut it down. only once before in history has a supreme court nomination ever been filibustered and that was the nomination, the last republican supreme court nomination, out of samuel alito, that filibuster failed. he was confirmed. >> bill: it looks to me that it will be very hard for the trumpet administration to get seven democratic senators, two or three, i can see, seven, the it will be tremendous pressure on those people to stay within the party. >> there will be pressure to stay with him the party, you are right, bill. on the other hand, there is 25 democratic senators that are up for reelection in 2018 and many other prime states that obama -- excuse me, mr. trump carried. they will be under some pressure not to buck him on this. we will have to see. a lot will depend on who the nominee has, on how the hearing goes, and all the rest of it.
i expect it will be an all out attack. it will be hard for them to get seven nominees. the other option, of course, would be for the republicans to follow through on what the democrats already started when the democrats basically blew up the filibuster for nominees below the level of the supreme court. if that were to happen, that could be done with just 51 votes, then, the filibuster would be out the window and the nominee would be approved. >> bill: that gets a little complicated. but there are rules that they might be able to get around the filibuster. handicapping, say, it is judge gorsuch, who is not a real controversial judge like william pryor is, that is why i don't think he will be nominated. to say gorsuch gets the call, what are the odds that he will be on the supreme court in your opinion? >> i would say they are better than 50-50. certainly better than 50-50. most supreme court nominations are confirmed, only once before has a filibuster been used to block one. however, the democrats will
likely argue that because the republicans refused to take up the nomination made by obama at the end of his term, and left that nomination untouched and therefore, not approved, what they are within their rights to block this nominee and do whater means are necessary to do that. i think that is how the equities would fall there. i think that is with the argument will be. it will be brutal. the other thing is, you can't rule out the possibility that the judge goes before the senate judiciary committee and he will be peppered with hostile questions that he handles himself well, so deftly, that the case against him falls apart. that will be something you would have to see. that was the problem with robert bork. he didn't handle the politics of his hearing very well, it made him more vulnerable. he was eventually defeated. the other possibility, of course, that the nominee does so badly, the republicans back away from him and they no longer have the votes to confirm.
but i think that is less likely in this case. to be one that is remote. okay. real quick, i thought there was a lot of media hysteria over the trumpet executive order on the refugees. >> i don't want to be hysterical. but this literally could be a matter of life and death. >> we chose to punish ordinary men, women, and children, who are fleeing terrorism and violence, these people are the roadkill of trumps posturing. >> bill: okay, so come on and on and on and on. did you see it that way, that it is a little hysterical in the media? >> i thought it was quite hysterical. when you boil it down, as it turned out yesterday, it seems, and los angeles in particular, where the demonstration against what trump had done clogged to the streets and roads so badly that i think more people were inconvenienced by the demonstrations then were inconvenienced by his order.
it is manifestly true, as you and charles discussed, that this thing was executed and rolled out very clumsily and it caused some needless delays and headaches. but the underlying policy is not unreasonable. even if you disagree with that, it is a temporary measure designed and the presidents mind to present an opportunity to strengthen the betting that goes on. then, it is supposedly going to be lifted. people say, it won't be, to be seen. in the near term, lot is what about this, what these two sound bites adjust from a bicycle come hysterical. >> bill: it is. brit hume, everybody. thank you. plenty ahead as a "the factor" moves ahead tonight from southern california, will americans turn away from hollywood entertainment because of the anti-term sentiment out here? later, watters annoying many californians. >> >> is bill o'reilly fair and balanced? >> what do you have to do with
bill o'reilly? >> he is my boss. >> bill: we hope you stay tuned for those reports. ♪ well, a 103 yeah, 103. well, let me ask you guys. how long did it take you two to save that? a long time. then it's a fortune. well, i'm sure you talk to people all the time who think $100k is just pocket change. right now we're just talking to you. i told you we had a fortune. yes, you did. getting closer to your investment goals starts with a conversation. schedule a complimentary goal planning session today. tawell, the only place youn, need go...oll? london's got the best of everything. cornwall's got the best of everything. sport sport nightlife

members and everyone at home, and everyone and airports that belong in my america. ed [applauding] you are the parts of the fabric of who we are and we love you and we welcome you. >> bill: thought last night on the heels of president trump's refugee order. with us now, the copresident of the hollywood reporter, janice min. so, i think, and i'm in the movie business, as you know, now, i am kind of a mini mogul, all right, i can make my books into movies. i think critical mass has been reached. i think the trump supporters, all right, 46% of the electorate that voted for him, had it with hollywood. they've had enough. and that will show up in economics cap, they are not going to see some of the movies, they are not going to watch them with the tvs. am i wrong? >> i think you have a point to some degree. these awards shows, you have been to them, i go to them. the room, you are speaking, preaching to the choir when you
give one of those speeches. to get very caught up in the moment. there is also this huge pressure, to have social moments. these kinds of speeches that you saw last night at the s.a.g. awards that you will see at the oscars, they traveled. people talk about them online. i think there are producers in town, i know the oscar producers don't agree with this, but there are wardrobes producers in town who feel that lots of people watch television and award shows are on the basis of ratings and people, it does not just people in los angeles and friend hassan who watch these shows. their people in texas and florida and ohio. >> bill: the s.a.g. awards last night were down big time from the last two episodes. so, i think a lot of people just started to hear this stuff and turned it off. >> people come to these shows for escape. they want entertainment. >> bill: they don't want politics. >> if you are too new to the news all weekend, it was protests, stuff about trump and steve bannon. you couldn't escape it. so, there is a mindset among some people that you want to turn on the tv on sunday night
and have your release from all of this. >> bill: it is more than that, though. ashley judd giving that speech. i think she ruined her career. i do. as a leading woman. she can still act and get roles. but as somebody who can open a movie or they will feature, it is over. >> i think what we have learned from this past election, the right is as mobilized as the left is. all you have to do is do one search of "boycott liberal celebrities" -- >> bill: a lot of danger for the celebrities who depend on the public to by their product. a lot of danger. now, reverse mccarthyism. if there had been -- i am a member of the screen actors guild, i'm a member of the union -- say i had been giving out an award last night. [laughter] she is laughing. she's laughing. "that would never happen out here." although, i did give a kennedy center's award out. if i had come i would've said, you know what, we should all come down because the actual order isn't that bad. the execution may not have been
good but the order, you know, it makes little sense. they would have booted me. i would have -- right. the band would have started to play if there was a band. i mean, people would have had heart attacks. then, i would have never been invited anywhere again. isn't that reverse mccarthyism? >> this is a town with almost a singular mindset. is it reverse mccarthyism? >> bill: yap, because you are banished. say you are an actor, not a brilliant journalist, all right? say, i depended on produce is hiring me. and i said something like that at the s.a.g. awards. i wouldn't work! >> i think there are actors of high caliber, and i would put you among them, not as an actor but as a figure in hollywood, jon voight, for example, gary debussy, they can work, they can be outspoken, they have a platform. but if you are the struggling up-and-comer, i think that there are going to be people who will -- >> bill: that's an excellent point.
there are outspoken conservatives who still work. last question. mel gibson. does that surprise you? getting nominated for best director and best picture? >> hollywood knobs narratives, right? people get built up, they get turned down, built up come again. >> bill: have they forgiven him? >> they have forgiven him. i think people like this, they have forgiven them. let's rumor who is in a in the academy. elderly people, a lot of women. they forgave him. these are the people that he largely offended. remember, we have one agency who fired him, refused to work for him, now, he signs with a rifle across the street. >> bill: i was surprised. most of the people i know, most of the people i knew were surprised. it was a good movie. >> it was a great movie. >> bill: janice, it is always a pleasure to talk to you. when we come back, karl rove on how president trump should handle all of the controversies coming his way. then, watters doing what watters does in california. moments away.

controversy with his executive orders. he knows this. but politically, is that a good or bad thing? turning is not from austin, texas, karl rove. okay, so, i could be wrong, but i don't think i'm wrong, because i know mr. trump very well. he believes that all of this controversy, including the refugee stuff, all right, even though they are walking it back now, in the sense that they are allowing people with green cards in, and all of that, helps him. it fires his base up and the people in the middle are getting fed up with the anti-trump people. am i wrong? >> well, there is some truth in there. i agree with some of it and i disagree with some of it. look, every action may have the tendency to strengthen the enthusiasm of your supporters. but in this instance, i think that the controversy is hurting him more than the controversy is helping him. and i think he could have gotten a lot of the good out of this by being a little bit more
deliberate and not looking like this was being hastily thrown together. if you want to get something to drive it home, don't do it at 5:30 on friday night. that is when washington tries to bury news. don't do it by issuing a piece of paper and not being able to brief reporters for two hours on what is going on or hound out a piece of paper. sunday morning, i am still trying to get a copy of the executive order off the white house web site. i have to get enough of "the new york times" web site for fox news sunday. so, get your act together. imagine what would've happened, if rather than doing it on friday night, he had had a big thing on monday or better yet, the day after his secretary of state is confirmed, and he is standing there, surrounded by the secretary of state, and the homeland security secretary, and he says, i am declaring today, and immediate suspension of the issuances of visas to the seven countries, here's where why, we are going to take 90 days to come up with extreme vetting. in the meantime, nobody from these countries is going to at a visa. if you got a piece already from
these countries, and you have come to the united states, you are going to be subject to rigorous monitoring because there is a relatively moderate number of the people who are going to be coming here who have those kind of visas. incidentally, this is not going to apply to people with a green card. people who are permanent, legal residents of the united states. he would have gotten all of the advantage of, i am tough on potential sources of terrorism, i got a program that i am putting in place for extreme vetting, i am decisive and i am taking action. i got two guy standing next to me who can help explain this to the american people. i am expanding it to you. and guess what, if you are the person with a green card, the woman from north carolina, who has been here for almost a decade, who is got a life in a family here, who went home to visit her family and he ran for one last time, and got caught up in this, do you think it helps that the first person off the airplane at jfk was a guy in iraq who spent ten years
