2:01 pm
entitlements in his state of the union address including community college, health care, retirement benefits. all part of a sales pitch for so-called middle class economics, which includes a testy push for raising the minimum wage. >> everyone in this congress who still refuses to raise the minimum wage i say this. if you truly believe you can work full-time and support a family on less than $15,000 a year, try it. if not, vote to give millions of hardest working people in america a raise! melissa: that was one amazing. grab bag of new giveaways, any mention of reducing the 18 trillion-dollar national debt nowhere in sight. here to discuss all of that, tom sullivan james freeman from the "wall street journal." noelle nick pour. columnist for the "fort lauderdale sun-sentinel." what hit me, you also can't
2:02 pm
support a family on 17,000. you can't be head of household on 20. we're talking about a nation aspiring to have heads of households working at mcdonald's that is not america. >> irony of it is, the majority, biggest group of people on minimum wage are teenagers from affluent homes. they're not supporting anything but their weekend gas money. that is what they're sporting. yes, there are people on minimum wage -- melissa: the answer isn't to raise the minimum wage. the answer to get them into real jobs as a career. >> absolutely. melissa: noelle. >> he has myopic view of the economy and how it works and middle class. that is not middle class. that is poverty level. melissa: that's right. >> what he is not doing talking about creating more jobs? what did he do, shovel-ready jobs? they didn't work. what will you do increase minimum wage? more community college is free when they're overloaded. >> stopped keystone with thousands of jobs. melissa: we'll fact check a lot
2:03 pm
of things he said and a lot of numbers. it doesn't come out well for the president later in the show. stay tuned for that. james, meantime what is your take? >> this idea, that people on the other side of the argument says you can raise a family on minimum wage. no one sy is aing that. literally no one. no one ever has. he invented an idea basically that it is mcdonald's job to give everyone a very high salary. this idea someone works for years full-time dedicated employee and says at minimum wage that person doesn't exist in this economy. it is hard to have a debate about economics when there isn't agreement on basic economics. melissa: literally no one ever said you could raise a family on $15,000. >> no one said that. >> how i repeat i'm for the middle class i want you to know that. >> takes a platform to leave it to the republicans to say we'll not increase that minimum wage therefore we don't like poor people. trying to set the gop up.
2:04 pm
>> where do you find really good wages now? in the oil field? building pipelines? a lot of sectors he will not allow to grow but took credit for last night. melissa: that's amazing. world's top ceos sounding down right gloomy about the global economy. 17% believe growth will decline or subdued. that is a huge jump, james freeman. why is there that big jump? >> this is disturbing. these people obviously have good information, who can see businesses can get a read on global demand before we can before it is disclosed to the public. i think it is a big reason for concern and it is kind of a counterpoint to last night in way. we got a very rosy picture of a booming economy and i think ceo's are saying, how much of this is money-printing from central banks around the world? how much of this is real? that says they don't think it is real. melissa: this is the second element. we have falling price of crude
2:05 pm
oil as canary in the coal mine. ceo's are saying it will be worse next year. seems like starting to line up. >> you can call me a doom-and-gloomer, if you look at it only reason our economy is doing anything because it is artificially manipulated primarily by the federal reserve. melissa: yeah. >> as long as that continues we're still the place to be but that is, when you have a artificial economy the rug can be pulled out from underneath you quickly. >> as far as oil, he did not give any credit to fracking and what that has done. >> right. >> number one. and number two, the ceo, 17%, probably more if you interviewed more of them. they know what is going on. they see things from the global prespective. i would trust their point of view on the economy than our president. melissa: definitely. walmart announces service that you pick up tax refund from the store. it is not as easy of grabbing paper towels from aisle six but it is pretty damn close of the you get taxes done by one of
2:06 pm
walmart's outside partners. you wait for confirmation code and lets you get the refund without a check which is positive for people without bank accounts. james freeman, i was trying to sort through this one and it seems like they're trying to target people without bank accounts. that is really whole idea. how do people without bank accounts are getting tax refunds? >> remember we've got a lot of refundable tax credit now you don't have to be earning a taxable living to get the money back. there is a lot of fraud in that area. melissa: right. that's what i was going to say. that is just where we're going. >> there is a lot of people in the system. it could be big business. i think it is also potentially an avenue into people that do have bank accounts. walmart has, banks are terrified of you will wal-mart getting into banking. melissa: right. >> this is one reason why i like lower regulation is walmart upstarts, you like more people competing with the traditional financial products. melissa: why would somebody with a bank account would do this? why would it be advantageous.
2:07 pm
>> i don't mean this particular offer, but if walmart becomes your bank or financial services -- already got all the locations. melissa: yeah. >> for unbanked and that is millions of people in this economy, this may be a good deal. >> i think this is brilliant for walmart. i'm from arkansas bent tonville where walmart was founded. this is brilliant. if you receive the cash you are in walmart and probably going to spend that money. melissa: that is what they're banking on. i'm wondering it sound a little shady this idea who is getting a big refund? >> those are the people they want to open their bank accounts at the new walmart bank. that is what they're trying to get them to become bank customers. melissa: interesting. so just in case you were feeling secure in your relationship we have really horrifying news for you. according to a recent survey this blows my mind one in five americans has hidden a spending free of $500 or more from their
2:08 pm
significant other and the fun doesn't stop there. an estimated 7.2 million people have a secret bank account or credit card. james freeman do you have a secret bank account? or credit card that mrs. freeman doesn't know about. don't worry she is not watching and i won't tell her. james freeman, secret bank account, yes or no. >> i'm not going to comment on that. melissa: oh, no. wait a second. wait a second! stop the show. james freeman, we got you this time. do you have a secret bank account your wife doesn't know about? >> no secret accounts. melissa: your -- >> one of many reasons i love mrs. freeman we are very open about it when the news is very bad. melissa: do you hide $500 or more spending spruce? >> there are no secrets. melissa: care to get in on this? >> no. i love mrs. sullivan because of
2:09 pm
the same reason. i don't have a secret account. i would i know she doesn't. melissa: how do you know that? do you have a right investigator checking her out? >> no. i have enormous -- melissa: feeling in your heart the other 7.2 million people also feel in their heart that there are no secrets. >> i have worked with guys. i have worked with guys -- melissa: your drinking buddies. >> they sit around and they complain, they complain about this. melissa: they know about this bank account your wife has. >> you know i just found this $800 dress receipt and she denied that -- melissa: what is she pay in cash? how do you hide -- for the record i do not have a secret bank account. >> sure. melissa: i wouldn't dot segment. if i would do the things i'm toll telling my producers we're not going anywhere near this. i will not ask you because you're a lady. do you have a hidden cell phone or say a hidden family?
2:10 pm
where does this stop? >> when it comes to material things, a lot of guys say i want a new golf clubs, want to go drinking with the guys. my wife i shouldn't tell her. women say, i have an event and need a new dress. i'm single. i have tons of accounts nobody knows about. >> don't you think if you have a secret bank account there is something deeply wrong with your relationship? >> i do. although we were divided on our staff. i have got to say. they say it is folks 18 to 29, it was our younger staff did not think this was a huge deal. say you decide, this is one of the excuse my spouse is less responsible with money, not great with money, so we keep our stuff separate. that means that person will go off to do crazy things. you're on the hook for it. you will fight about later. that is the upside. the downside they're spending money and cheatings on you. do you want to justify the secret accounts i know that you
2:11 pm
have? >> no. obviously it's a little different, someone saving money on their own to use for the family later than -- melissa: than a secret. yeah. hmmm. no. all bad news. >> i'm going to come out against secret accounts. melissa: you will go out on a limb. >> you're sweating through your clothes. are you going to be okay? we'll let it go. that was a lot of fun. losing focus terror seemingly low on the president's list of priorities. some think it's a dangerous oversight. from the class clown to the teacher's pet. last night's address reminded us of listening to high school and we decided to hand out some awards. more "money" and lots of awards coming up. ♪

2:15 pm
melissa: the united states carefully watching an attack in yemen. rebels there storming the presidential palace in the country's capital late last night. the government calling the attack, the completion of a coup. officials there the rebels are believed to be backed by iran are now holding the president captive. the u.s. embassy in yemen is still open but navy ships are now at the ready to evacuate all americans if the situation worsens. yemen has been a key ally in our airstrike campaign against al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula. believed to be theorg saying's deadliest branch. we'll keep an eye on the situation and bring you any developments. meantime as all that is going on, it took more than 20 minutes but the president eventually did get around to discussing foreign policy last night. he reiterated the usual rhetoric about our broad coalition exists and we have a long-term
2:16 pm
strategic. what didn't mention the words al cade, not even once not with the situation going on in yemen. no reason. lt. colonel oliver north is the host of "war stories" and joins me now. we looked back minute by minute what was mentioned. he spent 2 minutes and 5seconds on terror in afghanistan and iraq colonel. does that make sense? is that a level of priority it deserves? >> no. of course what you were commenting on just demonstrates how surreal last night's state of the union address really was. it raises concern, melissa, that the president of the united states is delusional by claiming things like the crisis is over and we're turning the page, but he never mentions our enemy, radical islamic terror. that radical islam is larger and more dangerous than ever. the only line about the military that made sense is the call for employers to hire vets but
2:17 pm
offered no incentives for businesses to do so. melissa: for therfirst time since 2001 a u.s. president gave a state of the union address and did not mention al qaeda. it seems like he wants to stick to the notion al qaeda is on the run. even though as you look what is going on in yemen at the very second he is talking, it's for sure not the case. is think any justification? is he in denial or is it that the more attention we give them the more it seems like they're winning? i don't know, is there some justification in there? >> well, it doesn't fit his narrative. the narrative has been ever since bin laden was killed that al qaeda is on the run. he is not just underplaying radical islamic terror he clearly doesn't understand the reality of the threat posed by it. i think he is naive to believe jihad is over just because we bring our troops home or we close gitmo. last night's address emboldens our enemies and making our allies wonder if we're serious,
2:18 pm
melissa, he is out giving the state of the union and talking to folks out there what matters to them. maybe on the side he is taking care of what is going on with our national security. he spent 20 minutes talking about taxes, the economy job, wages, six leave infrastructure investment trade and education. all long before he, you know, spent the two minutes talking about foreign policy. but a recent pew poll shows 76% of the americans think that terrorism should be one of our top priorities. so americans out there are scared i think that he is not taking more control. >> sure. well he is totally wrong. last night he talked about rash decision criticizing his predecessor and reacting to headlines, not using our heads and by getting drawn into unnecessary conflicts. the use of military force always ought to be a last resort but the failure to use it in response to an attack emboldens our adversaries. when he speaks of drawn into unnecessary conflicts and neglect for broader strategy one might ask is he referring to
2:19 pm
his own unilateral decision to use air power to unseat assad. and those are kinds of things foreign leaders look at. the fact that we invited to the house of representatives, bebe netanyahu, next prime minister and current one to come before a joint session of congress. that shows that congress reflects the views of american people, and white house doesn't. melissa: "war stories" with lieutenant colonel oliver north, sunday at 8:00 p.m. on the fox business network. don't want to miss that. the 20-year-old christopher cornell tweet sympathizing with islamic terrorists let to an under cover fbi operation and threat to blow up the u.s. capitol. according to the plot, cornell
