it. great book, very encouraging. pick up your copy of "settle for more" today. happy knew year. be safe and have fun. tell us what you think of the show. thanks for joining us. i'm sandra smith. welcome to "hannity." russian president vladimir putin is responding to the obama administration imposing sanctions on his country over allegations of hacking. i'm kimberly guilfoyle in tonight for sean. putin released a statement saying, although we have the right to retaliate we will not resort to irresponsible kitchen diplomacy but plan our further steps to restore russian relations based on the policies of the trump administration. and president-elect donald trump is reacting to putin's statement by tweeting, quote, great move on they by v. putin. i always knew he was very smart.
joining me now, fox news contributor john bolton. thanks for joining us tonight. lots of developments even since yesterday when we spoke on this show. let's get your thoughts. >> well, i think the putin decision not to expel american diplomats has several aspects to it. it shows utter contempt for barack obama. it says you're going to be history in three weeks and i'll reserve judgment on what i'm going to do until you're gone. he hasn't said that he's not going to expel american b diplomats. he's putting it off. this was staged. th so early in the day russian foreign minister sergey lavrov go public with a recommendation to expel 35 american diplomats. every western news source in mos kpou reports that they're going to be expelled and then vladimir
putin steps in saying, no, no, we won't expel the diplomats and i'm inviting the children of american diplomats to an eastern orthodox christmas party. what a sweetheart. he's trying to maneuver to russian's advantage. no mistake there b. but he's trying to build the two of them together to get what i think he really wants, the most important concession he wants is no retaliation for the cyberattack. the sanctions are meaningless. the expulsion of diplomatic personnel is a temporary problem. what he really worries about is america going on cyber offense in retaliation to what he apparently did during the election campaign. so this is, this is fill very
mu much in play. >> you bring up an important point. he doesn't want the focus to be on the cyberattacks. this is a way of side stepping it. this is a man who's obviously very bright, kgb, he knows what his mission objectives are, he's focused on the target and he'll do whatever it takes to achieve it. and that means if ult vating this relationship with donald trump, he's going to do that. and it's very much showing disrespect for president obama and his current administration in the last three week to say that was a joke. you thought you were going to poke the cage of russia, of moscow and it just didn't work. >> and i think it shows that they have thought through what's going on here in these last couple of months. they saw what obama did to iz z israel and the security council. they understand that obama is in this period of opportunity really for him between the election and the transition.
i'm not entirely sure that this is obama just trying to vent his spleen on the incoming trump administration. i have a feeling that a lot of these steps upcan't take in the middle of an election campaign. and our election campaigns take a whole year. he thought hillary was going to win. >> i think you're right. >> a lot of this was planned because he could do it, take the credit, take the heat. hillary was not going to reverse any of it when he took office so he could get his legacy in place and she would defend it. now he finds himself faced with donald trump being his success and and all of his plans are throw awry. >> he made a decision predicated on the election that they thought they had guaranteed, they grossly underestimated the movement of donald trump and the people that came out to support him. does this put president-elect donald trump in a bad position come january 20th?
what is your advice in terms of what he should do in how to handle rurk sha? >> yok i don't think it puts hi a bad position. in barack obama thinks he can box the new administration in, he's sadly mistaken. president-elect trump is going to meet next week with intelligence officials to talk about the facts on the allegation of russian efforts to meddle in the election and he'll make up his mind accordingly. this is a graceless way for obama to leave the white house and virtually everything he did, with the exception of the security council resolution, or other things he may try to do internationally can be reversed with the stroke of a pen or the action of congress. he may be active in the next three weeks but it's really not doing to have much impact. >> always a pleasure. thanks for being with us. here now with more reaction is the author of "defeating jihad" dr. sebastian gorka.
through the developments since we last spoke. unbelievable. what you make of this latest play by putin and russia. have they outmaneuvered obama again? >> i don't like to praise a former kgb colonel on the most popular cable channel in america but it was a master stroke. he played the game, as the ambassador said, very smoothly with lavrov and then with tweets coming out of the russian embassy in london with photographs of a duckling as a lame duck obama and we'll invite you to an orthodox christmas celebration. he's said to the world, president obama you are completely irrelevant. and the truth is, he is. this is a new age after november the 8th. the idea that he plays golf for eight years and now he decides to do something about russia, it's incredible. truly incredible.
why now after the invasion of the ukraine, this is when he waits to do something because of an alleged hack of the dnc? he's made a laughingstock out of the white house. >> let's talk about what president-elect donald trump should do now in the aftermath of this when he assumes office on the 20th. because still some decisions will have to be made, sanctions and further sanctions aren't off the table. that is something certainly that he could impose because we don't want russia making a fool of the united states or trying to interfere in our u.s. presidential elections. >> correct. absolutely. but we have to be very cautious. i think the approach president-elect trump has taken is the correct one. let me see all of the evidence and once i'm actually installed as the commander in chief, i can take measures. i've read the unclassified fbi -- there's a joint fbi-dhs report on the attack, the
cyberattack called "grisly step". there were two cyber hackers in spring of 2015 and summer of 2016 went into the dnc computer network. it's very specific. but what they did and what information was taken out is not revealed. let's wait and see. we've got 21 days left. then there will be some kind of measured response once the information is made available to the new president. >> yeah, i couldn't agree more. you have to put the case together with all of the facts, not speculation or hyperbole or innuendo and make these choices based on a fact presideattern tu feel confident with and leave the options on the table in terms of how you will in fact deal with it going forward. a lot of complexity in terms of what's happened over the last few weeks in terms of our international position, also, as you know, as it relates to
israel, another problematic area. >> absolutely. absolutely. i've been trying to find the explanation for why he's doing this incredibly dangerous things in the last three weeks and vi i have to say, i give the award to ambassador bolton. the answer is correct. the left thought they were going to win. they thought hillary was going to be the next president. they now realize this that the whole agenda, the next eight years of continuing to socially engineer america and undermine our relationship around the world, that's not going to happen. there's going to be a new sheriff in town called donald trump and as a result they've got three weeks left to cram it in, whether it's attacking ini israel or anything else. that's why we have to be vigilant. what else can we expect from the white house in the next 21 days. >> always a pleasure. thank you so much. also tonight, a republican congressman is making headlines
for his comments about russian hacking. take a look. >> i'm all for doing what's necessary to protect the election here. but there's no suggestion that russia hacked into our voting systems or anything like that. they, if anything, whatever they might have done, was to try to use information in a way that may have affected something that they believe was in their best interest. but the bottom line, if they succeeded in giving the american people information that us with accurate, then they did what the media should have done. >> joining us now is the lawmaker you just said, arizona congressman franks. some accusing you of siding with russia. you tell us what you meant. >> well, i mean, obviously if you could see the whole interview that would be somewhat
helpful. i would suggest to you that i made it clear in that interview that anything that russia did to compromise any of our systems should be met with the appropriate response. i even called mr. putin a kgb thug in the interview. so to suggest -- >> they didn't show that in the clips. exactly. >> that's all right. that happens a lot. but i appreciate the opportunity to come here. unfortunately you leave me with little to add from john bolton, who i consider to be one of the greatest foreign policy people in the world. i think he should have been secretary of state. sebastian gorka, i have to say something nice about him because he could sue me successfully for plagiarism anytime he wants to. but having said that, this situation is pretty straightforward. this president, when he came in, had the famous reset with
russia. i think he thought the entire cold war was just a giant misunderstanding and he stood by and let russia, as sebastian gorka mentioned, invade ukraine even though we had an agreement with ukraine to protect their territorial sovereignty. he stood by, in spite of his red line in syria, and let the russians barrel bomb aleppo, killing thousands of innocent women and children. and then all of the sudden he finds his tongue and does something he should have done early in his presidency and made it clear where we stand as a country that we will not stand by and let russian expansionism take over the world. but in the meantime, vladimir putin has mocked up the world with barack obama. it turns out he's not quite finished, it seems. >> you sear s're saying the mai media should have done their job, properly covered the election, properly covered the
toris about hillary clinton, her e-mails, her deleting e-mails, about her server. all of the above. that is certainly true. and as it relates to president obama, i think we find ourselves in this position because of his failed policy. there is no respect there between vladimir putin and barack obama. and now we find three weeks before we have a new president in office this attempt to certainly try to box president-elect trump in. but it seems that vladimir putin did not fall for the bait that president obama wished he did. >> well, again, i don't know how you could say that better than you just said. this administration has weakened america across the eight years of the administration's existence and we're going to be decades trying to clean up the mess. i hope that mr. trump is up to it. i believe he is. i believe we hav day in america and i just hope so desperately that we return to some of the great foundations
that made our country the greatest country in the history of humanity. if we do that, there's still time to make a great world. >> the united states should not take a knee and be ashamed of being a super power. russia certainly isn't. there are far reaching itch occasions as it relates to the middle east and russia's relationship with iran. this is all going to fall squarely with president-elect donald trump. what advice would you give him going forward for january 20th about dealing with russia? >> well, i think that he should do exactly what i believe he will do. he will look at the evidence and he will say simply to russia, listen, we as the united states of america are not out to dominate or hurt anyone in this world but we will always deal from a position of strength, acting in our best interest, our national security will be sure, or arsenal of freedom will prevail in any circumstance. so it's best to be our friend because to be our enemy is not a healthy position to be in.
>> absolutely. united states best friend, worst enemy. i can relate to that. >> yes, ma'am. >> thank you so much. and coming up, president obama's last-minute move before he eaves office appears to be putting president-elect trump in a tough spot. eric bolling next. and president obama sanctioning russia is a list of things that president-elect trump will have to deal with when he takes off. lieutenant colonel ralph peters will deal in, thweigh in, that much more on "hannity."
out power. tens of thousands in the dark tonight. some areas getting as much as 2 feet of snow. some areas were getting six cinches of snow an hour. united nations security council will vote tomorrow morning on a russian resolution to endorse the cease-fire agreement in syria. the cease-fire is still holding despite some minor violations. it was brokered by russia and turkey. star wars and cary fisher fans gathering friday. a mardi gras crew marched in her honor. fisher was a tough talking princess leia. i'm patricia stark, now back to "hannity." welcome back to "hannity." president-elect trump will be inaugurated in just 21 days. and a new report on the hill is claiming, quote, nearing exit obama seek to tie trump's hands. joining me now with reaction is my cohost of the five eric
bolling. a lot of diplomatic relations in question here, our relationship with russia, with just mere weeks until president-elect donald trump takes office. what is going on here with president obama and his administration. >> three weeks from today president-elect donald trump will raise his right hand and become president donald trump. and how many more initiatives will barack obama decide to throw out there. like you said earlier on "the five." he's done more in the last two or three weeks than he's done in the last eight years. backing off of the u.n. resolution, sticking it to israel and donald trump. the russian sanctions that you talked about right here. republicans jumped on board which means he's going to make it harder for donald trump to make the decision to pull the sanctions or if he goes guard wit he'll do it because there's evidence. and the domestic policy of the oil and gas, permanent ban of
oil and gas drilling in a alaska. it's insane what het's trying t do. the only thing that president obama should do for president-elect donald trump now for the next three weeks is make sure that the transition is smooth. >> what is this about? it seems like sour grapes. is president obama trying to capitulate to his constituency to appease people, the people who are upset that says he didn't do enough to deliver the oval to hillary clinton. if he had an idea that the russians were trying to interfere in the united states presidential election and he knew about it before, why didn't he do anything about it then. seems like some in his party and the clintons are upset with him so now he's trying to flex to russia. >> president obama came out saying if vote --
>> and so was was his wife. >> michelle was her most important surrogate. a vote for hillary clinton is a vote for my legacy. he's looking to blame anyone, blame the voting booths, blame the russians, blame the russians again and now think of what he gets to do with the u.n. resolution, he gets to take a shot at netanyahu and donald trump. and this one, blame vladimir putin, and also taking a shot at donald trump. another two birds with one stone. killing four birds with two stones. >> and the problem is like you talked about and kellyanne conway said this last night, is this a situation where they're trying to box in, and she was referencing the "the new york times" article saying this might be a little bit of political shenanigans on part of the president obama, like you mentioned, to try to force a play and some kind of showdown between putin and donald trump, making it very difficult for him
to make his own independent autonomous decision when he takes off. >> willed mere putin said i'm not biting on this. nice try, barack obama. we'll wait until you're gone. then donald trump says smart move. i knew you were smart. they'll work it out. if russia did tamper, they will be reprimanded and sanctioned severely but by donald trump, not by outgoing president barack obama. this is all politics. the three initiatives that we just talked about, none of them have any teeth. the sanction don't have any teeth, the u.n. resolution is just the u.n. resolution at the end of the day and the third one being the oil and gas initiative, the regulation that he put out. donald trump day one can repeal all three of those things immediately if he wanted to. so what barack obama is doing is he's throwing a bunch of stuff out there in the last few weeks. >> it looks like to me that impotent rage but it's not really something that is in fact accomplishing anything but it's
more kind of the bravado. and we both agree that in fact for sure russia should not be interfering in any way in u.s. presidential elections or any of our government affairs. that being said, there is no direct evidence of hacking at the polls or in terms of the voting machines and no russians voted illegally in the election. >> but for some reason liberals think wait and see, let donald trump make the decision, you're somehow on board with the russians. not at all. >> a lot of developments coming here at the end of the year. but it looks like vladimir putin is not taking the bait and he's going to deal directly with the new president-elect and it looks like he's done dealing with the current administration. you and i are not done dealing because we're going to be together again new year's eve. >> we are right here on times square. we had a great time last year. did very very well.
we loved it. we're on the roof top of the nicker bocker and we walk around the crowd, had so much energy. we said, why don't we do the show from the middle the crowd and we're setting up shop right in the middle of the crowd. you've got to watch it. we're going to have a blast. >> we'll be able to take the viewers right there. almost like a virtual reality. we'll bring it down to the streets. new year's eve in the center of times square to see the ball drop. we'll be down there with kennedy and jesse. >> something is going on in florida and you hope everything works out. it's always watchable. we have people spread out around the country but the real energy is going to be when we're walking around talking to people in the country. you'll have some escorts, the nypd. they're fantastic.
they care of kg when she's down there. >> it will be good. find someone for you to get cozy with at home, get sko cozy withc bolling and i, our all american new year's eve coverage. live in sometimes square, kennedy and jesse watters get the party started at 8:00 p.m. eastern. coming up next on "hannity." president obama sanctioning russia as the to foreign policy decisions president-elect trump will have to deal with. lieutenant colonel ralph peters is here next with reaction. stay with us. we live in a pick and choose world.

joining me now for reaction, lieutenant colonel ralph peters. thank you for joining us. unbelievable when you look back at the failed foreign policy of this administration certainly putting america in a week weaker national security position. >> well, kimberly without the least exaggeration, we can say that president obama has been the worst foreign policy president in our entire history, whether you look at the middle east, north africa, the south china sea, north korea, venezuela, history oomph in c-- triumph in cuba. we'll be paying for it for a long time. >> it's problematic because we have president-elect donald trump going to be in a position on january 20th where he's got to deal with russia. president obama appears to have tried to and failed to box him into a one on one with vladimir
putin. we have a mess that he's made that i think really is his he built it legacy in syria, one of the worst humanitarian crisis that we've seen in our lifetime. unbelievable inability to even react and make good decision and then has done everything but pretty much destroy our relationship with the key ally, a key democratic ally that we need to israel. >> well, indeed. and i think the litany of failures that you just went through goes back to a flaw in obama's character that's always been there. he can't make up his mind. we saw it in syria. he couldn't make up his mind in that first year when a small initiative on the part of the u.s. would have left us with a much better world. we wouldn't have half a million dead. you saw it with so many other
initiatives and now you saw it with his lame utterly ineffective sanctions on russia. i disagree with those who say that on the new sanctions he was trying to box in president trump. if he had been trying to box in president trump he would have done more, hitting the russian economy which is putin's weak point. but instead what he did do, what he always do. he goes for rhetorical flourishes and cosmetic gestures. these sanctions were minor tactical factors with no strategy whatsoever. on his way out the door obama is the 9 -pound weakli8. pound weakling. >> let's talk about how putin
responded, he said that's all you got and made a mockery, made it look like an irrelevant attempt on of president barack obama. >> indeed. ambassador bolton and we were talking about this in the green room. we both agree that the west underestimates vladimir putin and time and time again, since 1999 we've been underestimating putin. the guy is ruthless, vindictive, hates america, he's extremely capable. he'll do anything to get his way. he has a long term strategic vision. and what i worry about is that mr. trump is going to be so much on his plate that if he goes for a hasty deal with vladimir putin, it could turn into easily the equivalent of obama's iran deal. putin wants everything and he wants to give nothing. and putin is the ultimate master of the haart of the deal. the president-elect when he's inaugurated, he needs to be very
very very very careful with vladimir putin. we saw today, putin dangled a little bait with how he handle the sanctions issue and president-elect fell for it. tweeting again how great put,in is. he's our enemy because he hates us and everything we stand for and he wants revenge for the collapse of the salve yoviet un >> this is a problem. nobody should underestimate russia or vladimir putin. when you think about him, kgb, that's it. he does have strategic long term vision. he does want to kiss you on the mouth and knife you in the back. make no mistake about it. but i do believe that president-elect trump will deal with him in a very different way that president barack obama. this is going to be a completely different situation than what we've been seeing for the past eight years. and certainly no one wants
russia interfering in u.s. elections, presidential elections or any of that. but today we saw the reaction. president-elect trump said i know he's a smart guy. i don't think anybody is in dispute that vladimir putin is smart. >> when you deal with vladimir putin you must deal from a position of strength. if he wants something, we got to get something and he's got to pay first cash on the barrel head. otherwise he'll eat us alive. i want plump to be a great president because i want him to succeed because i want america to succeed. but i've been watching vladimir putin since the beginning and vladimir putin eats people. he's them alive. he's them before breakfast. he humiliated two u.s. presidents in a row, george w. bush and barack obama who thought they could deal with him. be very very careful. don't rush into a comprehensive new deal with russia, a fresh
start. we don't need a fresh start with russia. russia needs us. it needs a fresh start with us. putin wants us to look away from what he did in ukraine, the massacre in syria, his attacks on our election and they were -- all of this intelligence agencies agree they did it. and so he wants us to wipe that slate clean >> certainly, right. >> and all he's going to give us is a fresh start? no way. >> if you're keeping both eyes on russia, that's not good enough. i agree with you 100%. thank you for being with us tonight. >> happy new year. >> to you as well. and coming up, bill clinton suggested quote angry white men helped elect trump in november but fox news contributor roy murdoch is shooting down those claims. he's here next with doug schoen. and later -- >> we will build a great wall
and we'll stop illegal immigration for once and for call. . >> president-elect trump vowing to build a wall, this as the "the new york times" discovered that some department of homeland security employees and contract workers accepted millions of dollars in bribes to allow drugs and illegal immigrants to cross into the country. dr. sebastian gorka will be back with reaction. that and much more as "hannity" continues. liberty mutual stood with me when i was too busy with the kids to get a repair estimate. liberty did what? yeah, with liberty mutual all i needed to do to get an estimate was snap a photo of the damage and voila! voila! (sigh) i wish my insurance company had that...

there is nothing we cannot do. my message today is for all americans from all parties, all beliefs, all races, all walks of life, whether you're african-american, hispanic american, asian american, we're all american and we're all united by one shared destiny. >> and that was president-elect donald trump on his thank you tour promising to unite the country and serve all americans. but while the president-elect was touting a positive message, former president bill clinton was spewing the same old tied divisive rhetoric of the past telling a local newspaper that trump, quote, doesn't know much. one thing he does know is how to get angry white men to vote for him. well one of my next guest just challenged those comments from the former president in a
brilliant op ed titled beyond angry white men. trump won appealing to all races, genders and education levels. and he joins us now along with reverend darrell scott and fox news contributor doug schoen. this is what i call an a-team lineup. thanks for being here with me tonight. this is really unbelievable. the juxtaposition of the messaging of president-elect donald trump and now the reaction and the pettiness it seems of president bill clinton. >> absolutely. and i think the whole idea here is to delegitimize trump's victory, to paint it as the result of a white supremacist campaign and therefore let's shut down his agenda. he won 62% of white male votes. if those were the only people voting you could say it was a
white male victory. he did this by winning one out of three hispanic men, 8% of the black vote, 52% of white women. there were a lot more people involved in this trump victory than just white men which is what people like bill clinton would like for you to believe. >> reverend scott, what do you make of this. why is it this pigeon holing trying to paint this rhetoric and put this on president-elect donald trump? >> americans were angry but it wasn't just white americans. white, black, latino, asian, all americans were angry and that anger showed up at the polls because we were dissatisfied with the prior administration. i mean the executive vice president special council to
donald trump, michael coin and i formed a narnl diversity coalition and we have every ethic group that's a part of the coalition that are passionate in their support of donald trump. we all came together as americans. you know, other campaign is trying to once again divide us. but we came together as americans united with a common cause. let's get this candidate elected so we can make america great again. >> for all of the communities, rebuilding, infrastructure has been suffering under liberal reign, when you lock at places like chicago, et cetera, it was a compelling message when president-elect trump went out there saying what do you have to lose? and it seems that the communities did in fact respond. doug, great to see you. what are we going do about the clintons? when are they ever going to accept responsibility? >> look, i clearly -- kimberly, this was a mistake by president
clinton. and it's ironic. i was involved in 1986 and the sole purpose of the campaign were the angry white men that bill clinton saud were the core of donald trump's constituency. e bill and secretary clinton are recovering from a painful loss. i do join with the reverend to say we've got to unify this country. what donald trump said is right. he's got relatively low approval ratings now because of a divisive campaign. we've got to be together to be able to do what colonel peters said, which is to take on the russians and to fight the fight for america as a unified nation. >> you know, doug, what would you advice be to president-elect donald trump about how he can go about doing this and accomplishing this task of unifying the country? >> well, first he's got to
continue to talk the way he is. second, we need legislation like the initiative, the infrastructure which can bring in democratic votes. we need bipartisan tax reform, bipartisan regulation reduction. we need an inclusive president who helps the inner city, helping african-americans and hispanics. and if donald trump follows the good advice of the reverend, he'll be a long way to promoting a trudy verse constituency. >> coming up next right here on "hannity." we will build a great wall and we will stop illegal immigration for once and for all. >> president-elect trump is promising to strengthen our southern border. this as a stunning "the new york times" report reveals that some department of homeland security employees have taken millions of dollars in bribes to allow drugs
once. and for all. >> according to a bomb shell report the security of america's borders are being compromised by a serious threat from within. according to the report, quote, over 10 years, almost two hup employees have taken nearly $15 million in bribes being paid to enforce. and if trump cancelled an order from president barack obama that let them stay in the u.s.
joining us is doctor sebastian gorka. this is a very important issue and as a former prosecutor in a sanctuary city, boy, do i get it. borders are wide open. we have a huge problem and it seems like some of the corruption is coming from within. the fact we should expect this. national security was not the priority of this administration in power and the demoralation of our gustom -- customs shouldn't surprise anyone. this is why donald trump won the election. we do not have sovereignty of our own terror. and our borders are open and
there are people exploiting that possibility. this is going to change. why? because donald trump built his campaign on the wall and hau and order and will have to show serious advancement. this is something most americans can rest assured will be built with. there will be visible signs of it improving. >> and sheriff, i mean you're on the front lines of this immigration challenge of the open borders and what it does to the cities in the communities and united states. what is your opinion on that? >> it's music to my ears that
we're going to put america first. our community first. this is alarming. there has been officials in 10 years but i want to remind people that the overwhelming majority of the men and women are good, decent patriots. we have members actually of the cartel that infiltrated the ranks so we have to do a better job of vetting, and also, be proactive with internal investigati investigations and so 1 to 2
million are serious criminals, 74% of which have felony convictions. donald trump said they're going to be targeted and getting out of america for good. >> and what you're talking about is true. nobody is talking about breaking families. and it's got to stop. >> simply, kimberly, ask anybody. do you lock the door to your home or apartment when you go to sleep at night? right. >> who says come in, everybody. who leaves the front door open? saying come in, take my money
out of my pocketbook. that is outrageous. which country says that is a good idea? no country says that. because you don't have a country left if you allow that to happen long enough. if kept in the system, the country will crumble. >> you've been local on this issue. >> yes. >> president obama releasing tens and thousands of convicted criminals who aren't american citizens not back to their country of origin but into our
