duck for cover. "cashin' in" starts now. hi, everyone. i'm eric bolling. the crew this week wayne rogers, jonathan hoenig, michelle fields and richard fowler. welcome, everybody. we have the lowdown on the "duck dynasty" dustup in a moment. but first, i know you are tired of hearing it but you have to hear it one more time. >> if you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan. >> period. >> call it the lie of the year. "washington post" giving it four big pinocchios. now we see the president taking three of the top ten spots on that pinocchio list. michelle, the media love affair is over. what do you think about that? good for taxpayers? >> really good for the taxpayers. now the big government plans that the democrats and obama administration want to push through are not going to get through because the democrats run away from obamacare, they know it's a liability. we have the mid-term elections
coming up. democrats won't get seats. they're vulnerable with the obamacare fiasco. >> john, plate effect started it off with the pants on fire. lie of the year. president obama earned four pinocchios, also the lie of the year. we have been talking about this for a long time. we predicted this, did we not? >> i don't think there has been any real major change. there are scrutiny on this or that issue, but there has been no disagreement from the press or the public on obama's basic fundamental principles. it's the self-sacrifice, deference to authority and the distrust of the individuallism. many on the right echo the statement. mike lee saying we're in this together. so until there is a real alternative to the collectivism, i don't see media or anyone standing in
the way. >> barbara walters said we thought he would be the messiah. we're so let down. but is the media, has the media turned its back on president obama now especially with what is going on with the obamacare failure we're in the midst of? >> i don't think the media was on the president's side to begin with. there is time the media supported him and times they didn't. right now, the fact that a lot of the mainstream media saying we disagree for the president, that's great for him coming to 2014. gives him a chance for restart, reset. push for the immigration reform. push for raising the minimum wage. all things that the americans want to get done. >> what about it, wayne? i am going to push back. i think the media -- it's not only leaning left. it's far left. especially though the approval rating continues to slide, they cut him a lot of passes. >> they did. i agree with jonathan. the terrible part of this, the fundamental part of this, this is not a law. they said it's a law. the house passed it, blessed by the supreme court.
they are making it up as they go along. this is outrageous. this is fascist government at its worst. we have a totalitarian president who is -- every now an then he makes up something differently. today he made up another, another part of this law. this is not law. >> fascist government, really? >> hold on, guys. let me do this. the press conference with jay carney, it was addressed. what about the lie of the year, jay? what did the president have to say about it? >> end of the year categorizations like that are always fun, even if they don't jive with the past categorizations of the same statement. we have own and acknowledged where that roll-out, this fall has not been to standards we expect and where there have been problems. >> michelle it's the commander-in-chief. they have him lying -- jay carney says those end of the year characterizations is fun. >> this issue doesn't just affect the left or the right. this affects everyone.
what is happening is really awful. i would like to push back on the idea that the media, never on the side of this administration. the media never, ever investigated this president like they should have. they acted like archaeologists digging up anything they could about obama opponents. now the media is angry because they see the cancellation of the health insurance and see what the president did this year. the administration spied on reporters. they spied on fox news james rosen. now they are upset because the press corps doesn't have access to white house. >> rich can respond. >> not angry enough. the media is not angry enough. they haven't picked up on it. >> that is not true. not at all. that is false. we have seen msnbc and other networks cover the faultiness in the affordable care act over and over and over. >> i will tell you there are
if you go to media research you find out what is covering obamacare is mostly fox. >> everyone knows that the president lies. the staff admits that. why isn't the right getting traction? they concede the premise we're our brother's keeper. that's another thing we hear the folks on the right say. so what if the president lied? he is doing what is right and moral. the government controlled healthcare. until they have a alternative, we're not our brother's keeper. >> we'll leave it there. coming up, the patriarch of "duck dynasty" getting support from sponsors following the comments. network suspending him. will the free market decide who is right and who is wrong? >> i'm not sure that a&e has to go so far to remove him from the show. they could have issued a statement of what they believe in, if they felt differently
than what he said. clients are always learning more to make their money do more. (ann) to help me plan my next move, i take scottrade's free, in-branch seminars... plus, their live webinars. i use daily market commentary to improve my strategy. and my local scottrade office guides my learning every step of the way. because they know i don't trade like everybody. i trade like me. i'm with scottrade.

[ both laugh ] [ male announcer ] introducing progresso's new creamy alfredo soup. inspired by perfection. new creamy alfredo soup. is a really big deal.u with aches, fever and chills- there's no such thing as a little flu. so why treat it like it's a little cold?
there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so call your doctor right away. tamiflu treats the flu in people 2 weeks and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. so don't wait. attack the flu virus at its source. ask your doctor about tamiflu, prescription for flu. but it doesn't usually work that way with health care. with unitedhealthcare, i get information on quality rated doctors, treatment options and cost estimates, so we can ke better health decisions.
why did you decide to stay with "duck dynasty"? >> well, that is easy to say why did you stay with "duck dynasty"? i have been with "duck dynasty" for several years now. they are faith-based solid people. so it was easy, an easy decision. >> well, defending the ducks on sponsors of the show "duck dynasty" stay they will stick with bill despite the controversial comments this week. the network suspended him and groups that are demanding a&e drops the show. jonathan you say let the free market handle this. go ahead. >> this is the free market at work. phil has every right to say what he said and every right to fire him and sponsors have a right to associate or not associate with him. there is no censorship here, as i believe i heard governor palin and cruz talk about this. it only comes from government.
not from private interaction. i think that phil will probably hurt phil. people will dissociate themselves with the remarks. to me, it feels like jimmy the greek part two. >> i'm not sure. there is a ground swell of support for phil robertson. the facebook page had more than the enrollees on obamacare put together. people say vote with your feet. do you think they will vote with your feet? what does it mean? does that mean the "duck dynasty," stuff they sell at wal-mart will go down or it will go up and they will vote with their feet by turning the channel to something else other than a&e? >> at the risk of supporting my friend, he is right. he has a right to make the remarks. he can say anything he wants to. martin bashear on nbc, they got rid of him and the actor.
>> alec baldwin. >> yes, thank you. if they don't like what you say, they every right to say hey, goodbye. owe you have every right to say this. this is a personal thing. if you have a personal interest in your morals, your politics, those are personal to you. >> i have a hunch that a&e will walk it back quickly. >> i don't think so. here is why. if you talk about capitalism and the brand. a&e's brand is a wholesome, family-friendly brand. comments like that don't air as family friendly. even the networks decide to stay, with "duck dynasty," you have to understand phil is to longer there. he is suspended indefinitely for the horrible comments he made. >> however, they have a few episodes with what they call in the can that means they will roll the next season.
he is on indeficit suspension. i may or may not change before the future episodes air, right? >> absolutely. >> they have all the episodes that are planned for the next week. they don't mind profiting off of it. they can decide what they want to do. the free market is responding now, like you mention the facebook page has over a million likes of people saying to boycott. so people are not happy with it. they will have to change course. >> all up the screen that shows under armour, a sponsor of the show. they will stick with phil and "duck dynasty." they say, "we have no plans to change the current relationship, we are only aware of the situation and his comments are not indicative the under armour view." the important point is this the free market.
they are distancing from the comments. not a bad idea. >> after the canned episodes phil is no longer there so they can make the profit and continue to the market without connecting themselves with the disparaging problems of phil. >> if you are an advertiser on "duck dynasty," do you stay with it or pull your ads? >> i think it's a choice as to how the company positioned themselves in the marketplace. if you'd yourself on moral issue, you can't support this. on the other hand, if you don't care and it doesn't have anything to do with it, yes, you could do that. i don't think this is one that should be like that. this is a purely personal choice. as a company you say we don't like it or on the other hand we are going to support it. >> the advertisers knew what
they were getting. it's not as if they woke up and realized that this was what the show was like. people love "duck dynasty" because of what they say. they say things off the cuff and crazy. >> off the cuff and offensive are two different things, michelle. you know it. >> so a&e makes a decision, right now they suspended phil. the six is made because they -- decision is made because they say we will get blow-back from the gay community so we'll do this. however, do you think they would have expected as much blow-back as they get from the "duck dynasty" fans? start with you, john. >> i don't know if it's about the blow-back, eric. for me, just like racism or any bigoted ignorance judging people based on nonessentials like who do they love is simply not only -- it's immoral and bad business. in the end i think you will see it reflected. great people are liking phil and supporting him and the advertisers as well. we'll have to see how it turns
out. right now a&e doesn't want to be associated with the messages and my sense is other big advertisers will follow suit. >> maybe i'm not as tuned in as everyone else. my understanding is phil, his life went in a slide and he found jesus and he was quoting bible verses. do i see this improperly? >> in that comment, yes, absolutely. he was inarticulate. but the comment about the african-american was offensive. very offensive to the african-american community. so they are right to want to distance themselveses from that. >> all right. richard? >> i disagree with the michelle. the comments made about the african-americans and lbgt folks. i's horrible. "duck dynasty" has been around for two or three years and a&e has been around for 20.
they can protect their brand. >> holiday cheer and leaving huge tips for jesus. how the random acts of kindness are proving a myth about the group of americans. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ tires screech ] chewley's finds itself in a sticky situation today after recalling its new gum.

[ laughter ]
>> private charity does a better job than anybody else. private people go around giving away things. this is a great time of the year when people are willing to do that. it's a wonderful thing. >> i won't let you get away with that. you begged us to wear the hat. i love this idea. this is fantastic. waiters, waitresses, bar tepiders are some of the hardest working people on the planet. leave a big tip. a couple were $5,000 tips. who cares? it's christmas be. happy. >> it's amazing. even if you have resources or just a it will to spread the holiday cheer. but this is rumored the anonymous person doing this is the former v.p. of paypal. it's just a rumor. but i don't know if you used paypal before. it's a terrible website. i don't know if he is spreading holiday cheer or asking god for forgiveness or making us use that terrible website. either way it's good thing.
>> my gosh. bury him on "cashin' in." >> richard? >> i love christmas miracles. the other one that comes to mind is west jet in canada which bought everybody on the plane the best christmas wish, which is amazing. i love this stuff. this is great for the holidays. hopefully, though they are generous they'll pay their fair share of taxes. >> get the taxes in there. >> my gosh. >> let's say you are, when you die, you get taxed around 35% of your estate. not a bad way to get rid of some of this before you go. >> yeah, i mean i hope whoever is giving the large sums of money is doing it for him or herself. however not for jesus. charity should be all about you. it should be selfish. you should do it with the knowledge you get something out of it. even the knowledge this person will be so shocked and delighted if they see $1,000 tip on the bill. charity is about self, supporting the organizations you want to support.
government has nothing to do with it. >> i seem to be supporting my bar tepidders in the area around 48th and 6th quite well. >> yeah. i think it doesn't have to be about self. i think it's great he is doing this for jesus. great thing. i don't see the problem with that. >> it doesn't matter why he is doing it. i disagree with jonathan. it is done out of an act of kindness that you care about the society in which you live and you say i want to promote those things, good for this society. ultimate result, that is good for all of us. >> you're not part of society? of course you're part of society. you want to promote things that are important to you. >> that's what i just said, jonathan. listen to what i said. i just said that. yes, it's good for society. therefore it's good for everyone. >> all right. we got to leave it there. couldn't end a show without wayne scolding jonathan. thanks to michelle and richard
all right. time for what do i need to know for next week. wayne, you're up first. >> i have been attracted to the biotech sector for some time. it's volatile. you can be right or wrong, a big number. i like enzy. take a look at that one. >> do they have a big product we know about? >> they don't have a product you know about. no. they do not have a product you know about. it's not a popular product. they are in a research part of biotech section. take a look at them. >> very good. now i understand. research biotech. >> i have a popular product, eric. coffee! coffee is popular. we need at least one cup every morning so i'm buying coffee futures, cafe. etn that tracks coffee prices. halved gold in 2013 but i -- i hated gold in 2013 but i'm
bullish on coffee. >> very good. thank you very much. that is it for the cost of freedom block. thank you for joining us. but before we go, the "duck dynasty" story is more than just a culture story. it's a test of america's resolve. our fiber, our commitment to the constitution. in fact, this issue is exactly what "cashin' in" represents. therefore i support phil robert's first amendment right to share his christian beliefs. our founding fathers james madison specifically made it the point, the first point in our bill of rights to protect free speech. that said, i also believe the market shall judge mr. robertson, not any activist group. that means a&e has the right to suspend the duck commander and the viewers have a right to demand the duck guy backed should. i have faith in the market and it will prevail. "duck dynasty" will fly again with commander phil if a&e is dumb enough to let them go, i'm sure a smart cable network
will take that opportunity. have a great week. ♪ ♪ at this hour, nasa astronauts venturing outside international space station, making urgent repairs in the first of at least two and possibly three spacewalks to fix a broken cooling system. take a look. these are live images from space where the repairs are now underway. this isn't without the risk. and for the two astronauts that effort is expected to last at least 6-1/2 hours today. hello; everybody. i'm uma pemmaraju. live in washington. let's get right to the story. making news right now. dominic di-natale has the latest on this important spacewalk. dominic? >> the crew certainly have their work cut out for them today. rick and michael
