keeps the party going. but my airline miles take it worldwide. [ male announcer ] it shouldn't be this hard. with, it's easy to search hundreds of cards and apply online. ♪ neil: okay. here is why i make such a big deal of politicians to push for more dope. b : the total reserves, more than three and a trillion dollars. that is the third. and china ounces. which means china kind of loans us because that is a lot of chips. and for us, the latest proof
8:01 pm
that we are in deep, deep chip. a practice that a few times. welcome, everybody. i'm neil cavuto, and that is what happens. everything used to stand guard as right out the window, like respect. remember when least to be a beacon for investors in our unfettered markets and economy? tried 12 the latest global survey done countries like estonia, estonia. countries that learn from us arnel mopping the financial flow with us. and none more so than sign a, which has learned that the fastest way to rule the world is the first control the financial spigots of the world, and although they desperately need cash to pay their bills, by the way, that would be us, and that would be sad because the only thing worse than channeling a record amount of our debt is our doing nothing to rein in net debt. we make ourselves weaker in china stronger. amazing.
8:02 pm
without firing a shot we are already shot gun and does in this military guy no. he with me now, former deputy undersecretary of defense. my big concern is the more we know the worse it looks and for china the better it looks. what do you think? >> you're absolutely right. we have gone so far, just barely a year ago we had republin presidents to get it saying that the test for whether we should go ahead with the federal program is whether it is worth borrowing money from china to fund it. i just don't understand how the thinking goes here in washington any more. money, as you know far better than i, as a weapon. it is just like to shift, rifle, a tank. the basic point here is, when china decides, if they decide to take a hit on their own economy in order to sink hours, what is going to happen, we're going to be in, as you said to my very deep shade 56i can say that. you are far too respected to even try.
8:03 pm
>> i took your risk. neil: here is my worry the mother we are not worried. we just sort of have this smug attitude and say, well, you know, it should be told china needs as if not for as much as we need them. there might be some truth to that committee would be self-destructive for them to take punitive measures against this, that is a lot of money that they control, that is a lot of money we owe to them. is that a good position to be in. >> it is a terrible position to be in. and you're looking at what china is doing, building of the military, for heaven's sake a gun several years now testing entire satellite weapons. they can threaten our satellites who will be flying blind literally and figuratively. if you look at what is going on, they tested a hypersonic missile the other day. montand missile inside the atmosphere which is really hard to do fifth. they're saying is is for scientific purposes. well, really? we are really in a cold war with china right now.
8:04 pm
neil: here's the thing, this is linda on the moon. they're spending like drunken sailors year. so we think it is not just for, you know, a technological sort of discovery. >> no, when you looked at what is going on with the design of their armed services, design of their armed forces these days, it is intended to prevent us from intervening in their ambitions. they're coming up with weapons to prevent us from running an aircraft carrier in close, from doing anything from a satellite weapons, this whole variety of things they're doing, and they're doing it with us in mind. it is not an accident. there is a cold war going on. i wish someone had against talk about it other than you and me. neil: well, i am going to try to take -- think of words that rhyme with other famous curse words. in the meantime, secretary, is a pleasure. >> my pleasure. neil: by the way, don't even get this former ceo started on what
8:05 pm
a financial mess with light. former mcdonnell ceo says of the spending gluttony is eating a steadily financial grave, and yet we continue to practice pouring good money after bad and actually see politicians and the ones on this very show when i dare ask them about accounting for the moneys already spent. what do you think? >> i think your analysis and the secretaries analysis i just absolutely spot on. this is a national defence issue in some many ways. when i look at it we are importing, importing, importing. china is coming here and buying of food supply. they just bought smithfield foods, the largest producer. they understand exactly what is going on. i made it two week trip to china recently, the shanghai district. one of the party chairman said to me than the politicians in the united states have substituted fairness for good judgment. our culture is douses of years old, and we will win. boy, that is a pretty tough, to
8:06 pm
throw down in front of us. neil: there is another side to this that maybe we're making too big of a do over. china is not half what they're cracked up to be. they're falling on their own reputation that is not warranted , and there in deep trouble, so we should all come down. the flip side is that they are in deep trouble and all this debt. we could be in deep trouble. whether your boss? >> absolutely. if you go over their like a what is goiig on, they're building new highways, rail lines, airports, infrastructure. that is a society on the move. they're using our dollars to do it. you heard the secretary talk about what they're doing with their military. that is an employment per room for them. they're target is clearly the western united states in particular. that drain on our capital is causing small businesses to montagnards, people to give up. you cannot borrow money coming expansion of innovation

8:08 pm
neil: very young and very naive. i'm kidding. >> i feel it necessary to point out, another thing that china buying a car that does which keeps our interest-rate low. from a consumer standpoint there's a lot of fear that with the fed getting a of a stimulus and bond buying program who will see interest rates spiked. china is keeping our interest rates low. neil: i am arguing is a very, very dangerous prop. >> it is extremely dangerous, and the words -- the two words that stuck out to me, cold war, was thinking about that as i was coming to your show, we are in a cold war with china and it is having an effect on our market, creating a lot of uncertainty. neil: you didn't see it last year in the market. >> maybe the market would have been higher which is the point. if the market was up 30 percent with that china it may have been up 40%. no, i am not -- i don't really think so. i think there is tremendous
8:09 pm
uncertainty. ticket what is going on in nonmilitary. every time you turn on the cbc secretary kerrey talking about the middle east, the meantime, china has these islands with japan. we have a peace treaty with japan, and we cannot do a thing about it. that is a mess of uncertainty. neil: you don't think if things got ugly -- >> how can we without spending a tremendous amount of more money which is where the uncertainty. where will we get the money from? neil: we will print it. >> exactly right. that is why senate could if they want to put as out of business, but the other thing, let me just give you an example. if somebody found zero months of gold in your backyard and told you could money at $2,000 an ounce which you go near it? no. china is mining is much gold as they can add $2,000 an ounce.
8:10 pm
why? they want to completely control the market. they want to replace our dollart seeing right now essentially. violent -- we should be concerned. >> long-term china and japan, what is their priority and a daily basis, to continue to devalue there currencies because they are trade can export nations. how did they do that best combine our debt. >> they're revaluing their currency. the problem with china right now is they're probably one of the strongest currencies in the world. what they're trying to do, i'm sorry, is there trying to create consumer society. neil: bottom line, you are worried. buying a south. >> right. neil: you, senator, are saying that we are making much ado about nothing. >> and not saying that all. it is shocking and we can get ourselves out of this. neil: you will agree that we have to do something. >> everyone says there is the
8:11 pm
big threat that china could dump all of this debt and it would be -- they're not going to do it. it would hurt them more than us. >> that is not the problem of the issue. they have the threat to do it. that would hurt as much more than them. if we did something to try and protect japan china would say, go ahead, go for it. we're taking of as islands. that is uncertainty. neil:-year in crazy land. and i love you. neil: semi crazy? neil: and no one to argue. but it is out there, it is a worry, and we do of the chinese a lot of money. meanwhile, free weather quiz christie's presidential prospects have stalled. the traffic jam, the republicans apparently interested in going over the same race. next on the grand old party waits for 2016. not so much for who will be running, but you will be running. we keep going. ♪
