7:01 pm
>> rudy giuliani responds to the big apple's new mayor in his obsession with raising taxes on the so-called rich. more of my conservative solutions for america tonight, how shell oil can remedy our current economic crisis. >> we don't have to take the abuse. >> hannity starts right here, right now. >> welcome to hannity, we begin tonight with the big chill that is shattering records all across the country. thanks to the so-cold polar vortex, negative 24 in michigan and negative teens elsewhere in the country. keeping schools and businesses
7:02 pm
closed. earlier this morning, new york city broke a 118-year-old record with a low temperature of 4 degrees, minus 17 with the windchill. and standing by outside our studios in midtown manhattan to tell us how it feels. >> i was watching you on new year's eve. >> it is 9 degrees on my phone here, but if you look at that map you just showed, sean, negative six degrees with the wind. this is the sean hannity wet t-shirt contest, it's the conservative version. >> when did you do that? >> earlier. >> this bucket is full of water, we have our fox news t-shirt. it doesn't take long for the
7:03 pm
shirt to freeze. look at this, it's freezing already, can you tell. >> while that's getting frozen. >> we have a video of a man throwing water in the air, and it instantly is freezing. let's watch this. >> isn't that incredible? it's boiling water. >> and it becomes snow. >> right, and you know, we discovered this, it was a student, i was reading about this earlier, a student was making homemade ice cream and they realized the ice cream froze quickly when the milk was hot. >> i was watching you on new year's eve, i was wondering how at some point your mouth has to freeze and you can't speak. but that didn't happen. >> we toward the end of the segment were having a difficult time talking.
7:04 pm
>> it's close. temperatures continue to hit historic lows, it seems the freezing cold weather is getting some liberals, especially those on the peacock network. al sharpton got all dressed up to slam fox news. watch this. >> these right wingers are boiling over with denial. because it snows in winter doesn't mean the planet isn't getting warmer. >> it doesn't take much for the folks at fox to hit the melting point, the results of tonight's experiment to end. >> we reduce the right wing could use a new talking point. >> sharpton puts on his wife lab coat. his colleague is using the weather as a metaphor.
7:05 pm
>> not everyone can control their employment situation. not only can we stop the wind from blowing, we can't stop the republicans from being heartless and cruel. >> yeah, heartless and cruel. it didn't end there. the left wing lunatic goes on to blame the cold weather. cold weather on what? nothing else but global warming. >> what's your analysis of this cold snap? is it climate change? the aftermath of what we have seen happen in our environment? how do you call it? >> it could be just one of those years, we're cyclical sometimes. you go back in history, you think here, 15, 20 years ago, had a big cold snap, you look back in the records then again, 15, 20 years ago then. maybe longer than that, sometimes it's cyclical, but these cold snaps. >> here with reaction from the competitive enterprise institute. clean tech investor howard gould is with us. good to see you. >> 118 year record, and i think
7:06 pm
the one that got me the most, chicago is actually, it's colder there than at the south pole. now, how do you explain that, howard. >> you know, we've been talking about this polar vortex, the fact is, you have arctic air that is moving down over the -- over where we are currently, it should be over the arctic, but the arctic is heating. >> the reverse -- you think this is because of global warm something. >> yes, i do. >> all right. >> if you look at the -- i have seen this -- you go back to "time" magazine, they were proclaiming the next ice age is coming, now it's become global warming, now they seem to be backing off and talking about climate change in general, if it snows, global warming. it doesn't snow global warming, if it's cold, global warming, if
7:07 pm
it's hot it's global warming, if it rains it's global warming, if it doesn't rain, it's global warming. seems everything is global warming. >> it's better to remain silent. >> every time the jokes begin, you can tell by watching reverend sharpton. every time the jokes begin, particularly if it's precisely different, they can't resist and they begin this flailing insistence, particularly the opposite of what they said was going to occur, is proof of their faith, it only burns in the public's mind i think, that the lack of seriousness for the movement. global cooling caused a global vort vortex. that was a polar vortex in january. they see, and always when the
7:08 pm
jokes begin, major counter reality. it's just like, if you like your plan you can keep it, any fool could see you were going to lose it. they claimed the opposite, they're doing our work for us. >> i have to be honest, how do we believe the same people that were predicting a couple decades ago that the next ice age is coming. it seems they've lost correct. and we have scientists that were caught making up data? >> well, we can get to that in a second you're talking about an article that was written 40 years ago we're talking 1974. >> we know more about the at s atmosphere. >> what chris was saying, i think it's quite ironic, you guys don't have people on the
7:09 pm
show to talk about issues of climate change. all of a sudden it comes out, hey, it's cold out, they obviously. >> chris, as i look at it over the years, the patterns are very clear. the earth's temperature, it seems we just didn't -- there's a political agenda, am i wrong? >> climate change must be curbed, there will always be people who fail those lifestyles they don't like. for example, the witch next door caused the crops to fail and the babies to die, that was common during age. you do shows on global warming when they say there's proof of warming.
7:10 pm
>> they got stuck in the ice, and then the rescuers got stuck in the ice. we check back in with ainsley earhart. come on, no way. is that really -- that's the one? where's the other t-shirt? >> over here, can you pan over on this t-shirt, i'm trying not to slide, because it's -- we poured water on the ground. >> i know why you keep shaking it. >> i think i -- listen, it took a little longer, but we proved our point and we probably avoided a great segment on jon stewart. thank you. still ahead tonight, tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary on lbj's war on poverty, we have a heated debate on whether the government is the
7:11 pm
answer or the problem. >> we are called to put an end to economic and social inequalities that threaten to unravel the city we love. >> new york's new mayor bill de blasio raised a lot of eyebrows, someone referred to new york city as a plantation. we'll come back for the first time on tv. this is a hannity exclusive coming up straight ahead.
7:12 pm
7:13 pm
7:14 pm
put an end to economic and social inequality that threaten to unravel the city we love.
7:15 pm
and so today we commit to a new progressive direction in new york. we will ask the very wealthy to pay a little more in taxes so that we can offer full day universal prek for every child in this city. we will require developers to build more affordable housing. so new yorkers see our city not as the exclusive domain as the 1%, social and economic justice will start here and start now. >> to each, just a small glimpse of new york city mayor, bill de blasio in his widely controversial address. he took progressivism now to a whole new level. it's called action, it's raising a lot of eyebrows.
7:16 pm
here to discuss it with us is rudy julian nae. that little tax he's talking about is a thousand dollars. >> there are plenty of inaugurations, those are just awful. >> they were mean spirited. and the mayor is owed an apology. he worked tirelessly. >> he did a lot of good things. >> you left the city that's in good condition, and to be characterized as a plantation, that's outrageous, absolutely outrageous, i'm getting really annoyed at this concept of progressives, there's nothing progressive in this class warfare stuff. it's retro guessive, every policy that they're talking about is a policy that's famed several times historically, going back 130, 140 years.
7:17 pm
we're talking about marxist ideas. we saw them used in europe, asia. first thing i did was lower taxes, not raise taxes. the next thing i did was require people on welfare to work. if you want welfare, have you to work. >> how many people got off welfare? >> how about 500,000 to 600,000. >> this wasn't a spin-off of -- the person i boreried it from was the governor wisconsin. we called it workfare, the new york times viciously attacked me for doing this, what i can give you that will get you out of poverty is not redistribution to wealth. what i can give you -- i can
7:18 pm
give you a chance to keep the work ethic. >> we don't ask more of the wealthy to punish success. we do it to create more success sto stories. help people understand, we have federal taxes 39%? state taxes. state taxes in new york 9%? >> 12 to 13. >> so that would be -- that's 55 and a half%? >> if you consider you detukt your state and local taxes, your tax rate is 45, 46%. >> that doesn't include county taxes. >> oh, no, no, no, no, no. >> you are in new york you are the junior partner in your earnings, the governor is the senior partner. >> 60 cents of every dollar works out right? >> you are working for everybody
7:19 pm
else mostly. >> these are concepts? the point that i'm trying to make sean is, these are new ideas. these are all ideas that have failed. they were at the heart of why the city was a disaster in 1993, 1994, they were at the heart of why the city had 10 and a half unemployment, why the city had a deficit of 2 to 3 billion dollars, things i turned around and mayor bloomberg expanded on. we changed it by reducing tachs, we changed it by requiring accountability for people on welfare. nobody said that people on welfare are lazy, what happens when people are given things is, they can fall into a loss of the work ethic, that can happen. that's been demonstrated. that's why -- >> most people want to work, but they can lose that over a period of time. >> what you want to do, you want to fight to keep them in the workforce. if the mayor wants to do something good, how about setting up a work fair program and getting 30,000 to 40,000
7:20 pm
people. i had 40,000 people working for new york city that were on welfare, the unions don't like that. if you're owned by the unions you can't do that. if you're owned by the city of new york, you can do it. >> what do you think -- how long does it take before you think the negative impact of these policies -- because new yorkers -- you're right, this has all been tried before, it's been tried in new york. how long before -- >> it will take longer than you think, because mayor de blasio has taken over, despite all that rhetoric which was horrible, he's taken over a city that mayor bloomberg has left all the fundamentals -- it's taking over a business that's doing well. before you can deteriorate it, it's going to take a lot. i hope he changes his mind, i hope and pray, and i'm optimistic about the fact that he becomes practical. one of the things that can happen to you as a mayor, it can make you practical. ed koch was one of the most liberal members of the house of representatives when he became mayor, he became an
7:21 pm
extraordinarily practical and very conservative mayor. sometimes it happens, we had the example of president obama who probably has gone more to the left, so we're going to have to see what happens, but these ideas are not progressive ideas, these are retrogressive ideas, they're all ideas that have failed over and over and over again. >> what did mayor koch say? >> after six months of being in office, and complaining about how the city was falling about, he said the people have spoken and now they must be punished. >> great. we're going to be punished on a federal level, congressional level, now in the city. great to see you, appreciate it. still ahead right here on hannity. >> we need to go back to america, take the abuse. do you, sir. >> it only gets better, when we come back, our great american

7:26 pm
unfortunately many americans have no hope, some because of their poverty and some because of their color. all too many because of both. our task is to help replace their despair with opportunity. and this administration today here and now declares unconditional war on poverty in america. >> now, 50 years after that declaration of war, poverty continues to run rampant in america, it seems the only solutions the left has to this
7:27 pm
problem is to demonize the so-called rich and encourage more citizens to rely on the government. the senate advanced a $6 billion bill to extend unemployment insurance even though that's not paid for, the president was quick to applaud the vote. >> america's getting stronger and waif made progress. the economy is growing and we have to do more to make sure that all americans share in that growth. >> we should build on that progress. the first order of business is extending unemployment. voting against unemployment does not create jobs. congress should pass this participate plan right away, and i will sign it right away about. >> the president raising the minimum wage and taxing the rich, he always says that, he's admitting his economic strategy failed. here's brit hume.
7:28 pm
>> the administrations appeal for further extension of unemployment benefits may put republicans in a tight spot. it may be a shrewd political move. yet embedded in it is an extraordinary acknowledgement of failure by the president and his party, we are four and a half years into an economic recovery that democrats keep telling us is getting better all the time, yet the job market remains so weak, the jobless rate so high, that the president considers it an emergency. indeed that is the official name of these extended benefits, emergency unemployment compensation. >> here with reaction from the business network, tamara holder, i listen to this, we're entering the sixth year of obama's presidency. we've been through a stimulus, the summer of recovery, where 500,000 jobs were going to be created every month, and we have the lowest job participation rate in decades. is it unemployment the answer or
7:29 pm
the policy that will create jobs. >> what is your policy? >> my policy is to drill, economic insanity. drill, fracking, natural gas and coal. >> what about the poor, it seems like every time i've been on your show, you question where i get my sources, i went to jesus, i went to the holy bible, if i recall, in mark, jesus looking at him, he said you lack one thing, go sell all you have and give to the poor, you will have treasure in heaven, come follow me. >> it didn't say, the government take it, though, did it? render unto ceasar -- >> the poor will be with you always. is that not in that good book? >> absolutely, you don't think that there are people in america who need help who are not lazy. >> i do. the unemployment rate is 2.6%. in midland texas is 3.2%.
7:30 pm
how about a job for the 50 million americans on food sta stamps. >> this is the worst post recession we've everybody had. >> compared to what. >> post recession. all recessions. >> which ones. >> name another recession we've had. >> which all -- all. >> just make up all recessions? >> if you're going to throw out all recessions, what recessions are there? >> every recession we've had, this is the worst post recession recovery we've had. more importantly, i want too read off some bills to you, sean. we have the economic opportunity act. medicaid bill, elementary, secondary education, water quality, housing and urban development, immigration, medicare and clean water, except these are bills, these are actual acts, these are laws that were passed as part of lbj's society. these are supposed to save us today. >> how much do we spend? >> it's a gazillion more than we promised.
7:31 pm
>> it's a war. the thing is, sean, let's talk about the answers to this. the answers you got answers. >> the government declared war on poverty and poverty won. you know -- >> poverty won? >> you mean, poor people won? >> government helping people in the end helped them more than hurt them? >> how so? >> people who are getting help are lazy? >> because the people who are -- >> did i say that? >> no, because -- >> that's your argument. i put on my website today, we're dealing with this later in the program, conservative solutions. we have more natural gas, more energy, more shale oil than the middle east combined and yet we're too stupid to tap into that. those are job creations, let me put up on the screen some things -- >> talk about the middle class. >> those are -- >> they need to create the jobs, you want to talk about tax cuts so they can do that, fine. what about the man that watches -- >> the working man that now --
7:32 pm
why is the unemployment rate 2.6% in north dakota. >> why is the unemployment rate so high in mississippi -- >> because they're not drilling for oil in mississippi like they are in all these other states, that's my point. >> okay, but not the middle class -- >> yeah, the middle class person. >> that works for the oil. >> all right -- >> charles, the economic backdrop is such that did you look at prosperity in this country over the last 20 years, these are places that are very rich. millions of people have fled those areas, it's all about these high taxes, high regulations, in california, a million productive people left by low skilled immigrants and babies -- >> babies? babies are working now? >> no, the million people replaced with -- >> if you look at california's population, it's the same as it was, productive people leave these places. >> what is the annual income of someone in mississippi that
7:33 pm
makes minimum wage? $15,000. >> it's attributed to abraham lincoln, ronald reagan quoted lincoln, it's a minister by the name of john henry. 1916 this is wisdom throughout the ages, you can't bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. you can't help the poor by destroying the rich. >> and what you shall do -- >> the brotherhood of man by insighting class hatred. you can't keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn. and one last one, you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should be doing for themselves. >> and according to the holy bible you should open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor. >> by the way, tamara --
7:34 pm
>> by the way, by the way, you're not -- i don't know why you think helping someone -- people who were born and dying on food stamps, why you think that's admirable. i will answer the question you asked earlier, a lot of people are lazy, and we're not doing people a favor by letting the job skills erode. >> charles, one study. show me one study that people are becoming lazy. >> we doubled the number of people on food stamps, it's not good for them, it's not good for the country. since when, i thought liberals believe in church and state. you can't mention god in public school, here you are quoting it as an argument.
