confident we can elect the right person. just over two weeks away from the fox republican debate for thursday, january 14th in the fine city of charleston, south carolina. donald trump still leading the gop field in national polls. texas senator ted cruise coming in at number two. ben carson and marco rubio's not far behind. joining us now is political media strategist mindy said. kevin and scott are here as well. to us is to drop out? who also drop out before we get to the first caucus in the first primary in new hampshire? >> while we see as candidates who have been calling and the 12% of those single digits, those that have started to drop out are those running out of money. we saw bobby jindal, george pataki, lindsey graham, those who haven't been able to make it to the main stage. they've been relegated to the debate and not getting the primetime coverage.
the two left in the undercard by senator rick santorum and governor mike huckabee. interestingly enough, to gentlemen who won the iowa caucus in 2008 and 2012 have not gained traction this time. i think we could see it is time for them to drop out even though they've been successful in the past and they may have the money. we may see that soon. rand policy and of the many people expect it to do a lot better to draw some libertarians support in houston at this point. the three gentlemen that seem to have a path or donald trump, merck or rubio ted cruz. jeb bush has a lot of money and they tried in make a case that he is still polling in low single digits. unless something drastically changes i don't say much for him. all the others have to be thinking, doesn't make sense to do this? sometimes it does because they are vying for a vice presidential slot.
it's not just about winning the presidency. >> scott rowden here. does a great analysis and that we have also santorum. we have huckabee as you reference potentially trying to stay in. how do you think they will ultimately make the decision? i.e. wait until iowa and new hampshire or get out earlier and weight after the next debate. >> they don't have that much to lose at this point other than pride. i think most of the candidates will stay enter iowa and after iowa they are getting a seven, eight, nine, 10 place finish. particularly someone who won the caucus in the past. it would be hard to raise money and the repeat no point in staying in. we will see many drop out after iowa. >> a mindy, kevin kelley here. how big of a difference is the new state moving up their caucuses in march?
how big of a difference will that play in the election cycle? are we seeing reverberations have been now in the polls? >> there is a big difference. partially candidates having to spend their time before they campaign. a really good piece yesterday about the role tennessee is playing because it's become such an important republican party. the endorsement is incredibly important and a lot of electoral votes at stake. after iowa, after new hampshire and south carolina, the race may not be clear. there is a good chance after the early march states that will become quite clear in consolidated to three candidates and hopefully around one electable nominee. dagen: i want to get into this because you see the attacks. it's not just what i was going to donald trump. he went after ted cruz again
when he was in iowa talking about an evangelical from cuba. you've seen us that the good guy you see the establishment. marco rubio getting attacked by jeb bush and also governor crist christie. there is an ad in iowa by a super pac supporting jeb bush and also chris christie going after his record in the senate. it seems to me at offbeat enough base. who cares about his record in the senate. chris christie is now drawing attacks and how long he's been suspended in new jersey. it just seems every time they try to go after rubio for another candidate, the punches don't land. >> for a lot of these attacks come is able to turn the table on christie for the same issues. i don't think they are so affect it. what is also curious right now is that his donald trump versus the field.
as opposed to going after donald trump, a lot of guys try and for the second, third place position in the field. they are attacking each other but the results could be none of them are successful and donald trump continues to soar. if they don't want to see that happen, they are attacking the wrong people. isn't electoral strategy are about pride. the jeb bush attacks for example , the feelings in this race, you know, i like jeb bush but is not done well. he's not met expectations. they've been about jeb bush's performance as a candidate. you have to wonder sometimes is a good strategy are really just about pride and will they wake up at some point you realize can we consolidate what that means these days. in these big collegial. forgiving someone in a think would be effective in this top attacking each other and set
their sights on donald trump. >> it seems to be shaping up as well blended being a very nasty battle between hillary clinton and donald trump. donald trump saying raise the issue of sexism. i'll go right after your husband. i'll go right after them. when he was asked last night of his own past is fair game, he went yet. i can only imagine what we are going to hear in the coming months between those two. and if a defect is? certainly as for trump and the primary battle for the nomination because republicans don't like the clintons. >> yeah, these attacks popular clinton with the democratic race. they help donald trump at the republican base. i don't think they are ultimately the issues that will turn the election. donald trump has to defend himself. hillary clinton is more vulnerable because she has centered her campaign on being a
champion for women and really has this record of when her husband have pandas preyed on his underlings that she shamed them and ruined reputation. she is more vulnerable on the attack. dagen: the wall street journal editorial today, the war in women. hillary clinton placed the sexism card. thank you so much for being here this morning. be sure to tune into the next of public debate on thursday, january 14th )-right-paren the fox business network. you do not want to miss it. whether they're sending most of the country, causing travel delays have flooded the midwest. 18 million americans under flood warning that the governor of missouri, illinois and oklahoma all declared states of emergency. missouri dealing with the worst of it although the rain has stopped, the state must deal with flooding. k. tvi paul shankman is on the ground in missouri with more.
>> never seen anything like that before. >> it hasn't been this bad since 1982. eugene michelle was here in 1982 and says the worst of areas this time were not quite so built up last time. >> they shouldn't build a flood wave when they know it's going to fly. >> one business for a long time is there a ford did most of the dealership sits on a hill but their used car lot is down below at the waters edge. >> removed probably 100 but just to keep them out of harms way. the manager said there was about six of them about halfway up. >> for all the people directly affected, many more are being inconvenienced by it. highway 50 is how most people get to and from the interstate. like several important roads in town, highway 50 is closed. >> for i feel that way is take the bat goes to washington. there is no other way around.

an aircraft carrier. cheryl casone with that on the whole another story. >> u.s. military officials accusing iran of carrying a rocket test within close proximity of american warships and commercial traffic in the strait of hormuz. according to one military official of the revolutionary guard fired several unguided rockets within 1500 yards of the uss harry truman was very little warning. the test is described as highly provocative. two separate earthquakes in the west coast overnight of magnitude 4.4 quake reported just north of san bernardino, california with two smaller aftershocks. >> it was just a slight roll. i'm from california so i'm used to it. >> i was just keeping close to the hurricane. it was no big thing for me. i was just hanging out. cheryl: there were no immediate reports of any damages or injuries in the area.
finally million separate quake did strike near big tour of british columbia in canada. traverse office far far away as seattle overnight. finally, chalk up another w. for carl icahn. the auto parts supplier bridgestone says it will not counter the latest bid for pep boys. apparently bowing out of the war. the latest bit is $18.50 per share. just over a billion dollars. you go mandate, mullah jack peered up 20% since the bidding war begin. we see all these new car sales really taken off the last couple months. but then for parts suppliers to see the bidding war happened for them i thought was kind of fascinating. dagen: do you think is overpaid for this company? >> no, i don't. he even said he was very eloquent on this. this is an excellent synergistic
acquisition for me. it's a pretty cheap for them, not expensive for him to buy this. when he came in on the bidding war $16.50 was the initial bid for the company. i will bid up to 18 cents in about 10 cents the entire way. but bridgestone cavemen he said delegate the deathblow $18.50. dagen: new security procedures come into the 2016 las vegas electronics show. with the recent terror attacks in san bernardino, and tend his bags will be checked at entry into the world's largest trade show for the first time ever. no one bags or luggage will be permitted in conference areas. i went subject to metal detector screening the body pat downs. the electronic show will be from january 62 the ninth. i look at this and go why were they doing this before? why was anyone allowed -- i know
they are nerds and they have gadgets, but why -- >> there is a lot of proprietary proprietary -- why weren't they doing this before? jo: dagen: has sent the message we don't have the measures in place. >> you may go back to this iran missile fire. we're not talking 15 miles or five miles. we are talking 1500 yards. that is absolute provocation. i'm concerned about the lack of response by this administration on those facts i would consider an act of war or at least the threat of war. that is like right over there. one of our battleships. >> the iranians defended themselves say we told everybody to get out of the strait of hormuz order would be doing these exercises. at the same time i agree with you.
>> this is why the avandia will go down as one of the worst deals i believe in our country's history. you don't trust them and if you do anything you have to verify it and it's a real problem. cheryl: you know what the president says about iran. you act against iran and iraq against a rush to -- russia. >> this is a very important development in that relationship. >> it's a free-for-all in the middle east. we do about mine. everybody knows him can call our bluff. we have no strength of resolve. it is a free-for-all. they know there is no recourse for whatever they do. dagen: speaking of ironic, more iranian crews coming on the market in the months and years to come. is that one of the things sending crude oil prices sinking again. despite the 3% rally, what are investors talking about 2016? we will coach the floor of the cma next. take a look at this come even half as they now be safe.
another book that we really can't get enough of this because you see a big powerful boxer falling on his dust. you can't ride a hover board. i know that this is in his home and this is his daughter's hover board that she got over the holidays, but in general grown people should not be writing hoverboards. here is what i'm talking about. i have seen them here in new york city, even though they are banned on sidewalks. it is not attractive. >> that is not a hover board. it is a modified segue. dagen: thank you for giving us the back to the future three cap, kevin. we will be right back. and i quit smoking with chantix. i don't know that i can put into words
how happy i was when i quit. it's like losing some baggage, i don't have to carry it around with me anymore. chantix made it possible for me to quit smoking. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. man, i love being a non-smoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.

1.5 million, that is a huge differential. a lot of that in the quote coast of the united states. what really hits home about the over supply of oil is the lack of market response to this story in the strait of hormuz. back in the old days if we had any type of incident and a part of the world was so much of the global crude supply going through the very narrow strait, we listed the price of oil go up five or 10 bucks. new world. back to you. trend dagen: stay right there. but he make of this? >> we've seen over the last 18 months at a barrel of oil has removed the geopolitical risk. it is no longer embedded in oil. oil simply trading on supply and demand. especially when there's a glut in the market place. what is most interesting is how is this going to play out next year. investors talk about louisiana, alaska and oklahoma on the muni
bonds because of the lower price. that is the interesting part starting to be talked about going into next year. dagen: the pain and high yield already in potential in certain areas of municipal bond markets. >> correct. dagen: phil, in terms of additional supply coming out of iran, is that fully factored into the price of oil this morning? reporter: i think it is 60% there. it raises questions of whether we see the oil and the only way we wanted that the obama and assertion backs of coddling the regime. if they had provocative, we shouldn't allow them oil. dagen: see if that ever happens. still, we will see you later. features point is that the lower open on wall street. look at what the markets will have in the new year. the dow futures and it's been a bad month for controversial
in 4 maria bartiroma. it is wins the dec. 32. kevin kelly and former senator scott brown, gentlemen both. devastating and rare winter flooding hitting the midwest. missouri, illinois and oklahoma, state emergency issued in all three of those states with missouri facing the biggest so far, a dozen levees being monitored, hundreds of homes in illinois and missouri at is, 18 have been killed in those two states alone and results of the flooding. the latest developments and forecast coming up. the republican presidential field narrowing last night. >> tonight is the end of my journey for the white house as i suspend my campaign for president. i am confident we can elect the right person. dagen: former new york governor george pataki announcing he ending his presidential run. he struggled to gain support
throughout the campaign. the latest on the 2016 race straight ahead. turning to markets futures point to modest climb that the of and 33 point loss on the dow futures at the dow put up a triple digit game and the big move for once again, crude down 2.5%. new concerns over nsa spying could impact our relationship with israel. the wall street journal reporting the agency targeted israeli leaders even after president obama announced he would cut back on monitoring friendly heads of state. and picked up communications with lawmakers. philadelphia eagles have a new approach, chip kelly fired after three seasons, the team was 26, 21 under his leadership. to miss the playoffs for a second straight year. two full trading day left in 2015, the dow is set to end the
year in negative territory for the first time since 2008. what does this mean about the current state of economy and what does the road like ahead? hank smith, $8.2 billion, chief investment officer of haverford trust. and the nasdaq is easily in positive territory. it is back in positive territory, what is that signaling about the economy ahead for the next year? of the market is looking not bad. >> bent this is a unique period in the market, this is a market that is enjoying it little bit of a santa claus rally, thinly traded and yesterday we had a little bit of a retreat on wall oil and the markets rejoiced overseas as well. it seems to be pushing this
market around and the thing is when you look at the market itself is narrow. what we need to see is a market that spreads out broadly, more effective, more stocks. and that doesn't say good things about the economy. we need to see small and mid cap joining, they should be joining in january. if they don't that tells you investors think the economy is not going to gain that much. small and mid cap are beneficiaries. dagen: a story in the wall street journal, biotech has rallied back nicely from the lows in august of 18% as a group of stocks. that shows willingness. there are a few sell-offs the willingness to take risks. >> talking about biotech, the nasdaq, great stable and names, one of the top ten positions trading at eight times, hepatitis c, franchise side does very well, they have tons of
cash on the balance sheet, great dividend, biotech sometimes gets a bad name but the health care space especially biotech's strong. >> is it any surprise you have obamacare, each endeavour year, tax uncertainty, regulatory uncertainty, businesses don't know what is next, everyone is looking at the market, that is not the indicator, people hiring, growing pocketbooks, the answer is no. maria: people don't know what tomorrow will bring and businesses especially, small-businesses don't know they are regulated more than we have ever seen historically. the other part of the story is the fed is raising rates so that is another part. four rate hikes or one and done, no one knows. dagen: so much of market action this year is driven by what is going on outside the united states out of the control of
politicians whether the slowdown in china or collapsing commodity prices which is hurting emerging economies and you have the rest of the central banks around the world trying to ease rather than tying like the federal reserve. >> resulting in a strong dollar which has been a big head wind for corporate earnings along with weaker oil prices and you are right as you point out in the beginning of the market is an anticipatory deal and looking ahead there are no signs the u.s. economy is going to go into a recession, none of the warning flags are waving any concerns right now, whether it is employment trends, inflation trends, the yield curve, we don't have any of that so we think 2015 is the pause that refreshes. the seventh year of a bull market, don't expect outsize returns that the reason we can't
get high single digit to low double digit returns next year, with modest profits and not even looking at much in the way of the expansion either. so to the point scott brought up, that is a big reason fiscal policy oversregulation, for tax policy is a big reason we are stuck in this 2% recovery as opposed to 3.5% recovery, we get that right and monetary policy as we move gradually toward something called neutral. >> the thing that frustrates me to add to that is the administration will continue to pat itself on the back when we have anemic growth numbers, every time they put them up and adjust them, the american public, the images we were talking about, they say leave me
alone, stay out of my way. i will create jobs but that is not what is happening. they are adding more and more, like of regulatory and tax and the crushing the american dream for a entrepreneurs, putting us in a bad spot. >> we have growth. entrepreneurs willing to -- dagen: if you are looking to politicians as your savior, i don't think it crushed the american dream because that doesn't give people credit for the american spirit they're getting starting businesses that have been created in the last five years. look at the 2? -- uber, we are talking about d.c. this economy can't grow unless d.c. gets fixed, good luck with that. >> we worry about the slow market environment, we talk
about nasdaq 100, we have google, netflix, all these companies that using a lot of new technology, microsoft is doing well. one of those things people need to focus on. >> there are pockets of opportunities even if the economy didn't do well. you could actually eked out a nice pockets of opportunity the give you a return. this is where active investors and investors are going to shine in 2016. a good manager can give a nice return but it is not going to be clear sailing through the entire year. we will have ups and downs and other parts of the market leading. dagen: final birdie. >> one lesson for the bull market is not letting politics get in a way of investing. there are plenty of
opportunities in 2016, particularly on the dividend side, seven years, and a single recipe 500 sector. dividend yields exceed bond yields. that is a generational opportunity. dagen: i with keith mccullough was here. he sees the recession. we have to wait for keys. thank you. fresh off the firing of a controversial ceo, 1 to $2 million, shkreli, a different company's controversial decision to raise prices. this is touring pharmaceuticals's decision to raise prices of its aids drug. >> in danger of being
productive, such a small product, one of the small door of products in the drug business. and blockbuster drugs. and could turn a profit. to put it back into research for the disease. dagen: an interview taking place before shkreli was charged with securities fraud and related to drug pricing. kalobios is separate from tearing, another country, and currently fighting the nasdaq decision to delist its shares. what do you think? crazy story. shkreli's whole thought that is not be but what about kalobios, what position was it is? >> they were actually going bankrupt, steps in a month ago and is going to held this stock basically, they were about to trade at $1, actually prepackaging bankruptcy, it came
in and the stock ran up pretty significantly. it went from the one dollar to 26. that was within the last month. she was going to coming with an investor group, was going to raise drug prices, this isn't any news, not a lot of people playing with this specific stock because he owed the majority 70%, going to go bankrupt. it is an election year and this will be at the forefront, drug pricing is going to be a big overhang in the health care space. dagen: hillary clinton went after the decision to hike the drug but i think that it raises the issue of what happened was overall drug pricing is a problem and will be a problem. however this was such a one off, was asking for attention, almost like shkreli wanted the
attention. there two separate issues. when you talk about drug pricing problems a lot of that, cancer drugs coming out in six figures. and this was just -- he was playing games like some other company about going out jacking prices of its. >> he was talked about, dumpster diving, a drug that doesn't impact abroad amount of people. and what is great about this, the express scripts came out, and make a combination or sell it for a dollar. there are a lot of answers to some problems we're having in the health care spaces specially for people that are impacted, a
blew an amp.but good nights. sure,music's why we do this,but it's still our business. we spend days booking gigs, then we've gotta put in the miles to get there. but it's not without its perks. like seeing our album sales go through the roof enough to finally start paying meg's little brother- i mean,our new tour manager-with real,actual money. we run on quickbooks.that's how we own it.

old for this. dagen: you fall like that on a hardwood floor that is a couch. move to politics, busy day on the campaign trail from endorsements to new campaign videos we begin with a campaign that has now been suspended. former new york governor george pataki announcing to supporters in the early primary states that he will no longer be pursuing the presidency. he finished with less than 1%, national average, marco rubio on the other hand receiving a major endorsement, influential south carolina congressman frank goudy, chairman of the benghazi committee calling him his candidate. >> it is not my job to tell you who to vote for but i am going to tell you who i am going to vote for and i will tell you why. i'm going to vote for marco rubio. dagen: republican front runner donald trump went after it troy goudy, he liked him and then didn't like him. he unleashed a new campaign ad,
by president obama. >> isis claimed responsibility. >> ability to produce fraudulent passports, devices rigged to. >> i got to get star wars. dagen: he was referring to the head of members of the military, star wars, makes a good ad. let's bring in david, senior adviser andrew peak, i want to go to you first, george pataki drops out. i want to know and i want some names, who will drop out next and will that be before iowa and new hampshire? >> it will likely be someone before iowa but after that you will see guys like rick santorum, mike huckabee has already said he will drop out, those two right off the we could see action after iowa, we are so
close now unless somebody, flat broke which is george pataki's situation, there is no reason to drop out until you start seeing actual election results and the picture becomes clearer for folks who has a chance and to doesn't. dagen: before we move on to andrew, in terms of not being flat broke, he is actually going to start spending some money with donald trump getting ready to lunge at its, 2 million a week potentially up to it could run into the tens of millions of dollars, even more than that, he will be running ads. what does he need to do in your opinion to be affective with an ad campaign. >> the at he is running right now is quite frankly very smart. tapping into what is now according to the recent wall street journal poll number one issue among voters, national security. donald trump is talking about what is of concern to voters as they get ready to cast their
votes and he is talking what they care about which is the most effective ads. dagen: in terms of national security and candidate's policies we saw lindsey graham dropout, lindsey graham was the most specific in what he wanted to do in terms of fighting the islamic state. i you getting enough specifics? do we need them at this point? >> the most interesting part of the last republican presidential debate was the dust up between ted cruz, rand paul, and marco rubio, the inheritor of the lindsey graham intervention label. the other two have tried to go back to george h. w. bush's foreign policy of a more realistic, more restrained, morally hard edge approach to the world. >> we talk about from spending money in new hampshire in
particular, that, taking it and putting it on the ground, and rand paul buses, not to get his people but make sure others get their people there and making sure all the precinct captains and county captains and driving out the vote where there seems to be a question. what do you think on that? >> i think you are sought on. the early primary states and caucus states and daiwa situations are all about turning out your supporters and having any effective ground game because you know military balance in some states have started going down or will be going down, smart campaign is working on balance strategies as we are almost a month away from first votes being cast in new hampshire and it is why marco rubio's enforcements of tray goudy could be a big impact for him. if greg audi helped deliver south carolina for marco rubio
and get a win in one of the release states it could propel him to ultimately getting the nomination. >> i actually have him second or third, chris christie coming on strong, trump is going par un chris christie in new hampshire so it looks like trump, kristy, marco rubio, 1, 2, ted cruz, nipping at the heels but what folks don't recognize is what will separate one through 7 is a couple hundred votes. dagen: i want to turn to foreign policy really quickly. there are reports that an iranian rocket passed within 1500 yards of a snake wrapped -- navy aircraft carrier in the strait of hormuz and carl rains calling the move, quote, highly provocative. the wall street journal reporting of the nsa monitoring of is really prime minister
benjamin netanyahu and his aides inspired members of congress, the journal reporting the monitoring began late in obama's first term. to both of these stories, the nsa spying story, what do you make of that, in the presidential campaign the spying has been an issue to their benefit for rand paul or ted cruz to a lesser extent. >> for a spying on leaders of foreign governments, even anomaly allied governments, germany, france, israel, they spot on as i assume we spy on them. i have a serious problem and a lot of americans will win the administration says we are not going to spy on angela merkel and francois hollande in france but benjamin netanyahu is the target here. dagen: your reaction? >> there is no one this
administration won't snoop on whether it is conservative groups through the irs they don't like, whether it is congressman chavis, the secret service went to his back routes, and we find out this situation. it is why people don't trust this administration and we can say we are not spying on our allies in france and germany but when you come out and say we are not going to spy on our friends and you call israel friend and then it comes out you are spying on israel what message does that send to our other allies that you say you are not spying but you are? >> the wall street journal had a great piece on this well worth the read. in the last paragraph the most interesting, which is we learned no new information practically from this spying case. all the things being said publicly by israel and the congressional members being spied on, all the things they assaying publicly so we learned nothing new other than we create
mistress. >> one of the biggest issues going on in talking about privacy and security is spying on american citizens and james clapper came out and said dozens iron american citizens that it has been over a thousand days and we have been proven completely false without any recourse or repercussions especially for this administration and still has his post. my question is who is the candidate that can set themselves apart say it is unconstitutional and should be done? we tiptoed around rand paul and ted cruz and they set themselves apart on this. >> there is no one who will set themselves apart. this debate stopped at being a debate after the terrorist attacks. when the movement led by people like rep omash and ted cruz in the senate for more accountability, more transparency about nsa program
is the debate stopped once the threat of isis hit our own shores in san bernardino, paris, no votes to be run by being soft on surveillance. dagen: we will leave at that. that was terrific, thanks for being here. great to see you. we didn't even really talk much about donald trump. >> we will be getting a text any minute. >> and a angry phone call. dagen: it was great to see you, thanks very much. had been year to both of you. meantime the governor, a rough new year in missouri, illinois and oklahoma, the governor's declaring states of emergency and activated national guard to help evacuate residents as torrential rain and flooding continued to cripple parts of the midwest. accu-weather's lauren velez says has details. >> real issues from the rain,

race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or religious affiliation, age, disability or disease, twitter also says it is answering critics that explicitly shutting down users who are banned and create new accounts immediately which is calling out isis, the islamic state. the new policy explicitly forbids creating multiple accounts with overlapping uses. what you see is twitter under fire and a response from the company becoming months later, this has been a criticism for years. dagen: shutting down the islamic state account, they started going after it, be heading galore, all over the service a year-and-a-half ago. people being murdered, atrocities, they only started really targeting those accounts after they got called out by the media on it because facebook to some extent, facebook and other social media platform is doing a better job.

going to allow the first shipment of exports in january so the market is getting geared up, obama administration finally relented gave in to common sense said time to start exporting oil i think a major impact on globally supply, and the flow of supply the other thing too we are already seeing it have a market impact, the cost of west texas is getting in other in line with the global market, and even though that means prices are higher than they were, that is a good thing because it means lower you know product prices because we really were tied to the product the brent crude to products gasoline heating oil. >> thank you so much --. >> thank you phil. >> phil and i are good we are solid, expecting key housing numbers this morning as we get pending home seals 10 a.m. eastern time investors paying

minute sxherths iraway new hampshire south carolina used last spot to drop out, juror thank you so much, for that reporting, peter barnes in washington joining us now, former virginia rep senator governor george allen good to see you as always, and senator let's talk about donald trump, because, the gop in the state of virginia has well feeling his dislike, so trump has so-calleded scolded officials for call what you want to a statement of affiliation before they go to polls he took to twitter as he often does, to go after the republican party of virginia. calling it bad, saying state seven statewide losses seven times in a row i want to get your reaction to this. >> my reaction is i've been nominated by convention primary so forth when in a
primary race back in 2012 i said i didn't want any pledges in it. i think the republicans in virginia, and elsewhere in the country particularly battleground states virginia is one of them should be making it easier for people who want to be interested in our candidates listen to ideas, and their agenda, and they could easier rather that happen difficult to participate. i remember when barbara comstock had what was called a firehouse primary two years little less than two years ago. and if people had assigned pledges grousing complaining about having to sign pledge, my view, in my experience, i have felt like this is unnecessary. in virginia you don't register by party. and so independents democrats republicans to have somebody say who is independent there is a lot of independents mined people in virginia, as you
know dagen they don't like having to say this, so in my view, oi let people vote if registered voter, they want to participate, let them, welcome them we need to grow our party in virginia. >> trump is right you agree with him so why is there a republican party in virginia doing this then do they really not like donald trump and want to keep those independent voters? i know that this isn't legally binding nevertheless concern independents who like trump won't vote in the primary. >> i think there are certain candidates who have the way i look at it, that could certain that they get people, to join their campaign not necessarily ardent republicans marco rubio what those that capability donald trump ben carson some extent as well, so again, in virginia, there is more democrats than republicans no one really can win without the independents, but the republicans need to get more independents to prevail over
democrats particularly in a presidential year, so, i think they are worried democrats are going to come in vote and vote for the weaker, republican candidate and that is a concern, but you know that is only going to be a few thousandsand votes in my primary, in 2012 there were well over 200,000 people voting. so if you get a few hundred degreed 1,000 or so, voting like that is not going to change the difference, and they will get their e-mail and mailing lists because were those vote in the primary are on the list, so i think that our party ought to be welcoming rather than trying to be exclusive. >> governor scott brown, first of all, good to see you nice to see you he. what is what is the endgame what do you this i the turnout will be in virginia? is it going to be numbers you are talking about 200,000 plus or much higher interest in -- i am surprised i agree with donald trump as well, i am not sure why they are doing this will it in fact stand, will
the people you know tolerate it just say i am voting you can't stop me this isn't legally binding jump off clarify type of thing? >> yeah you are probably latter for some people again not binding. i think a minor irritant in the prolong run, people will say republicans want to be, just want republicans voting even though you don't register by party. i think the turnout will be if onlyly hi in virginia so a many running by the time we get to virginia will be after new hampshire south carolina, and iowa, in nevada, so i think it will be a highly contested race in virginia polls christopher newport university poll showed all -- key candidates the top five candidates i guess in virginia, would be rubio trump, carson, bush, and maybe somebody else will break,
cruz, accuse me ted feed have you endorsed anyone? >> no, i haven't -- i have not endorsed anyone i probably will make an endorsement sometime next month. i am looking at candidates as far as demeanor agenda what ideas are they advancing that will improve opportunities for all americans that is tax reform regulatory reform productive energy policy and recognizing we need a strong leader, because we've seen last seven years, when america has a weak president, it makes america less safe, so i am looking at the candidate who can win, who is conservative has ideas that will motivate aspire people. >> want to given initials. >> no, i would like to dagen but i think others are listening. >> okay. >> we are he mostly happy here about the redskins. making the playoffs. dagen: thank you.

only paying about 24 cents a liter, but a lot more than the 16 cents they were paying a little earlier, but downward pressure, concerns about inventory right now, that big build on the api report, and weighing on the market right now, if we see that in the eia a little later, we could see more downward pressure, back to you. dagen: thank you for that, phil flynn all over that. we're two weeks away from the debate here on the fox business network. the republican field getting a little smaller overnight as new york governor george pataki suspends his campaign and who is next and will they go before iowa and new hampshire. it's a money issue, often, but there are editorials will people who need to get out of the way. >> look, i don't see any of the important candidates getting
out of this race until after south carolina, so, remember, it goes iowa and then we go to new hampshire, and then south carolina. and those are obviously the big first three. i don't see any of the big names getting out. some of the very lesser candidates that are, you know, at 1 or 2% may drop out, but you know, it's interesting, i've been studying these political races for 30 years now, dagen. you know, iowa always surprises. it's amazing. i mean, if you look at the last two, you know, competitive iowa caucuses, it was mike huckabee and rick santorum that won. nobody saw that coming. what i'm saying to you, everybody is looking at the polls now, still what are we, about four weeks out and i'm going to tell you. i think we may be surprised to ends up winning iowa. dagen: is it going to be -- i think it would be a surprise if cruz didn't win it at this point or donald trump. >> exactly. dagen: do you think it's somebody not cruz or trump? >> i think it could be. that's what i'm telling you, i think somebody who-- look, i was just in iowa and
cedar rapids about two weeks ago and i talked to 2000 people and talked to a lot of people who came to this all over the state and said who are you for. i would say over half of those, i still haven't made up my mind. i think the polls are incredibly fluid. dagen: you mentioned santorum and huckabee, why do we care so much about iowa. >> that's a good question. dagen: i know it's the first one, if your campaign didn't go anywhere after that, should the-- listen, donald trump doesn't care about iowa. >> sure. dagen: it's clear, i don't think-- he never wants to lose, but he's not going to concede iowa even if it doesn't matter. he's intensified his campaign in that state. sure has. you asked a good question, why do we obsess so much about iowa? look, i don't remember the exact results, but iowa usually doesn't pick the winner. the eventually winner usually comes out of new hampshire or south carolina or the southern states. so, it's a good question why everyone obsesses in the media
who is ahead in iowa. i have to say having been there, ted cruz has an amazing ground game. he really has organized there. i haven't seen that so much for donald trump so we are going to see whether he can-- how many votes he can get in iowa without the kind of caucus organizing that's required to win that early primary. but this is an attempt going on and i think it would be incredibly consequential election as we look forward to 2016, about what happens with the stock market, what happens with jobs. because everybody is in this anticipatory mood about are we going to see hillary clinton get elected and really generally carry on with obama's policies? or are we going to see a change in direction? >> steve, scott brown. so what if trump does not win iowa, number one, and what if he barely squeaks by in new hampshire. what do you see-- how do you think things will play out thereafter? >> i think he's got to win one of the first two, scott.
if he wins one of the first two, then he, you know, carries on and goes to the south and you know, look, i think that super tuesday is everything in this year because you know, you've got the slew of southern states that are going to really, you know, narrow the field considerably, but i would say, yeah, he's got to win one of the two, iowa or new hampshire or else he's going to be-- he's going to be seen as a defective product. i mean, i think the big thing right now is where does, you know, look marco rubio is the other big character in this whole race. where does he pull out an inwith? it doesn't look like right now like he's going to win iowa or new hampshire, that means to me, scott, he's got to win south carolina. dagen: congressman trey gowdy's endorsement, does that matter? >> no. i think one of the most
overrated things are endorsements. i don't want to-- everybody is so anti-washington, anti-. i don't think that endorsements matter one iota. dagen: steve, good to see you. >> happy new year. dagen: there's always so much to talk about, we are going to have plenty of time in 2016. happy new year. >> i'll be at the debate in two weeks now in south carolina, can't wait. dagen: i know where you can get the best coconut cake in the planet. and i know, it was my wedding cake. thank you so much. steve moore for us, and don't forget mornings with maria starts every day at 6 a.m. eastern time here on the fox business network. here are some of the best moments you might have missed

instagram and spotify. and flipagram, with 30 million unique users, took facebook three years to reach that number. flipagram did it in one. the founder and ceo of flipagram, joining us from los angeles, california, so good for getting up so early. >> thank you so much. you get started early out there. dagen: yeah, we do. too early, but it's great to have you on. talk about how critical it is for you to sign on these verified artists, and sign on and have developed these partnerships with the music companies. >> yeah, well, we're a video story telling app, so, people use photos and videos to tell their story. music forms the sound track to those little movies that people are making and just like in a regular may have, the music
makes a difference in the mood and emotional content. having thousands of artists brought on to tell their stories with their own music and encouraging fans to use those, it's incredibly important. >> sir, is it just established artists or you're seeing independent and regular folks jamming in their garages? it's open to everybody? >> it's absolutely open to everybody, we try to-- we have tens of millions of tracks that are licensed through our partnerships with the entire music industry, so we have everyone, from emerging artists and all the way up to the, you know, the pharell and carly ray jepson. >> i went and got to see santa with my nephews, and we set the tone which was nice.

fast. as far as protecting yourself. instagram has a great moment focused on the moment and sharing highlights of the moment, but we're about the story and it's longer than that. so, you know, they have to change their network somewhat know ared-- in order to get on this. and people are flipping through quickly and we require a little more investment so you don't just turn your-- you just change your network, excuse me. >> how do you monetize it for you and your investors? >> these are-- 95% of these are under 60 seconds. they're video, photo video stories under 60 seconds and this is a democratization of telling one minute stories and they're all little commercials. right now for the underlying music that comes with them, there's a link to buy the tracks, in the future and people are using it to make a
little commercials, and we're not, of course, it's free right now to use for everybody, but you can imagine many, many use cases. dagen: real quick before we go, in terms of your vc's, what are you talking about next steps, going public, acquisitions, going it independently for as long as you can? >> yeah, we are-- you know, we're incredibly excited about the viral nature of our products and the fact that we're moving. we think more and more people being able to tell stories. that's what the focus is right now, grow the user base as much as we can. dagen: good luck hiring because i am you are. the flipagram founder and ceo, thank you for joining us from los angeles, california. we go from the beautiful state of california to the heart of new york city and foa swartz and toys "r" us. the end of an era for the

as for toys "r" us. they are talking about a 21 billion dollar a year toy industry. they won't be here anymore, starting tomorrow. where will they be? they say they want to stay in the neighborhood, right here in times square, but they haven't made any specific moves yet to get there. gap and old navy are the folks moving in. sometime reportedly in 2017. splitting the space and using both of their stores here. this is an interesting time, holiday season, lots of sales for the store shelves going empty here at toys "r" us, dagen. dagen: great seeing you all morning long, jo ling kent outside of toys "r" us in sometimes squa-- times square. we have yet to see what the future holds for the automated being. does that creep you out? why the military is holding off on its animal robotic program. this is a can't miss clip.
