going to bring them into this country, i just said why. lou: kellyanne conway addressed one of those leaks concerning the call with australia prime minister, came from the state department. >> this is the practice for us, we are the ones not leaking, you saw with earlier reports, you see it here, you are a little bit hamstrung when you are upholding the law or frankly upholding a gentleman's agreement to not release. lou: white house press secretary sean spicer denied reports that treasury department is loosening u.s. sanctions against russia. sorry about that. we had a technical problem. we'll get that fixed. we'll have this for you in a matter of moments, secretary of state rex tillerson addressing the state department efficien for the
first time as its boss. saying must work together and warned of possible changes to come. >> each of us is entitled to the expression of our political beliefs but we have not let or personal convicts overwhelm our ability to work as one team, as secretary i will deploy talent and resourcing of state department in most efficient ways possible, it may entail making changes to how things are practicaly done in this -- traditionally done this department. change for the sake of change, is never productive, that will not be my approach. lou: met with foreign minister of germany. >> senate republicans considering employee so-called nuclear option as way to confirm president trump's supreme court nominee. but what would that entail? fox news chief washington correspondent james rosen
explains in this report. reporter: year was 2005, katrina rained down from the sky, and maria ruled airways that made george w. bush grew so frustrated over senate democrats blocking his nominee are in federal court ofs, that majority republicans weighed to weather to change voting protocol. needing a majority of 51 votes, senator trent lott dubbed this the nuclear option. because stripping the ability to filibuster, a tactic known as evokes closure was seen as blowing up the genius design of the framers. >> i pray god when democrats take back control we don't -- i urge all of us tong not just about winning every debate but
free and democratic debate. reporter: a compromised was reached. to 2013 when blurred lines of a hit and president obama of president, he was frustrated with minority blocking his. so they ended 225 years of present to allow lower court judges to advance with 51 votes. >> the circumstances have changed for the worst since 2005. >> far fast forward to wednesday. >> >> they hope they won't have to go nuclear. but threatening to change the way they did 4 years ago. >> if you don't have that atmosphere, and you break down that, then, you disintegrated
what we're as a senate. reporter: if democrats hold fire for a scotus nominee, then the republicans would likely hold off on thermonuclear conflict until the next showdown. >> thank you. >> uc berkeley campus cleaning up aft a vie been night of riots and chaos over a planned speech by breitbart editor milo yiannopoulos. prompting a strong warning from president trump. fox news correspondent claudia with our report. reporter: what started as a student protest against brigh breitbart editor milo yiannopoulos turned out to a full on battle about free speech on wednesday night. >> that is not us.

right as some of posters claim. reporter: milo yiannopoulos has been touring college campuses to highlight what he calls an epidemic of political correctness, and demonstrations have followed. forcing events to be canceled at uc davis and ucla. >> way that left operates they shout down anyone who disagrees with them, the campuses are little soft to -- totalitarian states where disagreement is actually harassy. >> there is a lot of soul searching going on. as officials work to fix the damage. lou: thank you claudia, we're coming right back there is a lot more to deal with here tonight. and all of it fascinating and
important, stay with us. we'll be right back. >> president trump administration appalled by leftist riots against free speech at uc berkeley. >> in the real world, when the kids go up and try to find jobs in the trump economy, life does not work that way, folks, you will work with people who disagree with you. y. lou: david horowitz, and charlie hurd join me next. >> and president trump's policies continue to resonate with countries at home and abroad. that much more ahead. stay with us, we'll be right back. my business was built with passion... but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on

lou: chief executive of uber today announced he is stepping down from president trump's economic advisory council. he wrote a memo to uber staff, saying joining the group was not meant to be an endorsement of the president or his agenda, but it has been interpreted to be that. joining us now, charlie herd,
david horowitz. good to have you. david, we start with you because, your organization, and milo yiannopoulos working it at uc berkeley, we understand they canceled his speech two hours before it was to take place, they did not have adequate police or they had leaders in police top officials, who refused to deploy police to stop estimated 150 anarchists who rioted and destroyed property and many cases injured people. is that a correct summation? >> yeah. this is launch of our antisanctuary campus campaign, the people responsible are janet napolitano, former head of homeland security, who made california campuses sanctuary
campuses, that de-- this is an opposition to patriot act, they encourage this. why were were people arrested? -- why weren't people arrested? this has been going on for decade. i can not go to a campus without bodyguards. they all need to be prosecuted. sure, defund them, make them pay. but one good thing that happened the election will trump. now we will have a attorney general rally who will investigate, these are fascists who they are, they commit violence, and have violent protests,y ther throw them in jail where they belong. lou: charlie we have this and demonstrations in washington
d.c., riots on inauguration day leaving aside the saturday protests, however you like to describe those. and arresting 216 people in washington d.c., i was shocked that the washington police actually responded. but in the case of berkeley, you are looking at a -- there was -- maybe an outdated noig notion that our colleges, our universities are institutions of academic freedom, pure freedom of speech, and assembly. this is beyond any expectation i think for anyone certainly who is a product of the '60s, and looks at what is happening now, this is the inverse. >> and supposed to be a place where kids learn discipline and kids are challenged,
intellectually, mentally and physiclike david i physically, david is right, this is astonishing they did not arrest them, they should have arrested every single one of them, put them in jail, to ni thme the most disgusting thing, they cancelled speech -- it does not matter what he is, provocative or mainstream, left -- whatever, he has a right to speak, and idea that university would back down. move tanking in to put this down so person that wants to speak gets a chance. lou: at last count they made one arrest, withdrew police, never put police up against the anarchists who did the property damage. and injuring people. we showed a young lady with a make america great hat, being
pepper sprayed for crying out loud. >> and lou, imagine. -- imagine lou if did you this 3 times i think that thugs would get a message, maybe they would quit, argument is they are not students of campus, these people travel, okay then arrest them. you will fix a lot of problems and a lot of different places, that would be terrific. lou: it would be that david horowitz, and milo yiannopoulos and organization, david, your organization, is working to at least bring attention to it, if not break the cycle of utter ignorance that has seized so many public campuses, public and private i should say, in california, and the country. i want to turn quickly to iran. and president trump saying nothing is off the table here. david after saying, very clearly, determining there would be put on notice, and general flynn, making that announcement yesterday, and
today, a missile launch i in defiance, your thoughts? >> well i hope they reinstitute sanctions and pulls the plug on this phony deal. lou: interestingly, that does not seem to be will thinking. it seems they would hold the deal. i find remarkable. >> well, you can also consider it step one. this is an administration under siege. we have ay i set -- democratic party that is destroying the america ewell, rallelectoral system as we speak, actressing calling for a mil military coop. >> and an nfl quarterback
inmate he wanted to see the president assassinated, and the secret service is not following up on any of those? >> that is a mystery to me. we have a state department leaking presidential conversations. lou: a mess, it is. i just call it subversion. we're close. your thoughts charlie? >> you know, you are right about iran sanctions, you know, i think some are better than no. but what it underscores is that just how pernicious the deal is to begin work the actual damage that president obama and john kerry did, by lifting all of the global sanctions that were on iran, it may be impossible to get all that t paste bacin the tube.
this is a reminder of just how damaging the last administration was. lou: indeed. thank you so much charlie, and thank you david. >> thank you. lou: vote -- our poll, should there be a pause on all activity at uc berkeley campus, hear me out,ing in w until we can figure out what has gone wrong with them? cast your vote, like he on facebook, followly. >> on wall street stocks closed mixed. volume on big board 3.7 billion shares. amazon shares plunging after amazon missed its revenue targets. you remember how holiday shopping season was supposed to be owned by amazon? apparently not.
>> and samsung weighing a factory in u.s. to manufacture appliances, president trump tweeting the u.s. would love to have the company, samsung has a 15% share of u.s. ablin appliance market right now. >> up next, white house crying foul on democratic b obstructionism. >> democrats are grasping as straws to block the confirmation of an unquestionably qualified nominee. this is not ever been a requirement. >> endangering the national security, the subject for my commentary coming up next, much more ahead, stay with us. a. show me the carfax? now the car you want and the history you need
are easy to find. show me used minivans with no reported accidents. boom. love it. [struggles] show me the carfax. start your used car search and get free carfax reports at the all-new carfax.com. is it keeps the food out. for me before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. just a few dabs is clinically proven to seal out more food particles. super poligrip is part of my life now. just like the people every business is different. but every one of those businesses will need legal help as they age and grow.
critical of the dems, but then how could i be. a few thoughts on the reckless disregard for our national security and public safety by the dems. delaying and boycotting mr. trump's cabinet nominations. he was sworn in not even two week ago. yet on six of his appointees have been confirmed. the fewest since 1933 at this juncture in his presidency. the democrats are boycotting another committee vote on president trump's epa nominee scott pruitt. but republicans on the senate environment committee did what their colleagues on the finance committee did. they suspended rules to advance pruitt to the full senate for an up and down vote. the dems attacking the president's nominees without basis whatsoever.
they are pledging to block who in my opinion is one of the most qualified nominees in supreme court history without even meeting the man. senators warren, biden and brown are behaving like an aists. they are an embarrassment to the senate. their leader senator chuck schumer delivered a defense of his destructive tactics. the senator claiming president trump hasn't put forth what he calls a normal cabinet. schumer is the head own that trump calls him. and few have a shred of respect remaining for him after his conduct the last few weeks. senator tim kaine even less rational, if it's even possible. ever bit as appalling, calling
on dem to the fight back against president trump in congress, in the courts, and in the streets. did you hear that? tim kaine, in the streets. here is counselor to the president kellyanne conway on the dems. >> the democratic party would ber we are seeing it unvalve and revealed in front of our eyes. they are hysterical about everything. there is no gradation of hysteria. everything makes them cry and scream. lou: the democrats have forefitted any play in politics. they merit on our contempt now. our question facing for the evening. the two most frightening words in washington are bipartisan consensus. bipartisan consensus, he said, is when my doctor and my lawyer
agree with my wife that i need help. we are coming right back. much more straight ahead, stay with us. the white house calling out the dems' efforts to block the president's supreme court nominee. >> the so-called 60-vote standard is simply not accurate. democrats are grasping at straws to block the confirmation of an exceptionally qualified nominee. lou: the american center for law and justice's chief counselor jay second slow joins us next. this high-speed bike race about to come to a harrowing end. we'll show you the video coming right up. stay with us. we'll be right back. ycheck... you've earned your medicare. it was a deal that was made long ago, and aarp believes it should be honored.
be overwhelming and complicated. that's why at cancer treatment centers of america, every patient gets their own care manager, to coordinate every aspect of their care. it's a long journey, its very complicated and we try to help them tough that. we are available 24/7. if a new symptom occurs in the middle of the night, we are there to help. the care manager coordinates all of the patient's appointments, scans, chemotherapy... the last thing any patient really needs to worry about is how am i going to get here, how is insurance going to handle this? one of the great things we do is help them manage their symptoms at home. we as care managers want to take as much stress off the patient as we can. meet the care managers at ctca.
my name is mena... collette jodi vincent stacy our nurse care managers are with you every step of the way so you can focus on your fight. learn more at cancercenter.com/caremanager appointments available now. lou: president trump told ridge leaders at today's prayer breakfast that america is back in the business of protecting its borders at all cost. >> we need security. there are those who would seek to enter our country for the purpose of spreading violence. oppressing other people based on their faith or their lifestyle. not right. lou: joining me, jay sekulow. the president laying out straightforwardly. he's going to protect americans.
he will assure our national security and he's going to secure our borders. let's start with the extreme vetting executive order. where does it stand in the law? >> clearly constitutional. the president has the authority both statutorily and constitutionally and recognized by supreme court precedent as well to do what he did. if people had actually read the executive order on immigration on the extreme vetting as it's called it's unremarkable. nothing different from what president obama. lou: a little long. >> they had to lay out the statutory basis upon this executive order was done. president trump would never do that. he -- president obama never did that. what president obama has done is baits on statutory law and the constitution. should we do serious vetting on
people coming in from these 7 countries which the previous administration said are countries of particular concern? the answer has to be yes. lou: even though five judges made their -- made an attempt -- a run at it, as you say, it's constitutional, these judges are making political judgments, not proper legal judgments. let me turn to judge gorsuch and the opposition that sprung up around him. i have never seen a supreme court nominee whose resume is more impressive, whose respect from all quarters of the legal profession, and politically is more universal or any deep. he's a remarkable candidate. what happens to him, will there be a nuclear option in your judgment, and should there be if he is to be opposed by dems for their own recklessness and
pettiness? >> in 8 or 9 weeks we'll be calling judge gorsuch justice gorsuch. i had a case in front of this judge. we took the case all the way to the supreme court. ni justiceended up agreeing with the position we advocated which is the position judge gorsuch did in a dissent and it became the law. will they try to mount opposition? sure, they will try. i don't think it's the senator themselves as the publicked a voa today i groups demanding something here. lou: can we not just say out of decency, to hell with them? we are talking about a legal profession that in nearly every law school in the country i think you would agree with me, they get less an education than
indoctrination and values liberal to left wing inculcated in their education as attorneys. >> there is no doubt that within the legal academy more for the most part, it's left of center. they don't spend time talking about the constitution. there are some universities that are exception. but they are rare exceptions. there are a couple others. but most academy in the legal community is not only tilted left. but drive the law through an ideological lens that is contrary to our history, our foundation and the constitution of which most of these law students never read. lou: should not the republican party be focusing on these issues and couple with kiewnlter veiling strategy as well as tactics to neutralize that kind
of -- again, indoctrination? shouldn't the justice department, the american bar association have some standards that are balanced and constitutional if you would say, constitutional foundation? >> a lot of these lawtudents studied law in havana. there are law schools that do not have required courses anymore. lou: we have schools that start teaching american history beginning 1887. >> these lawyers become judges and these judges become appellate judges and some of them ends up on the supreme court of the united states. lou: good to have you with us.
thanks so as much. we appreciate. roll the video. a california bike race turns nearly fatal. a bike pileup during the final sprint of the santa barbara road race causing one cyclist to crash. he actually rolled overred the guardrail on the other side. he's damaging over a 30-foot deep canyon. one of the bystanders rushed to him to get him back you have an was rechiefed as was his bike and he walked away have minor injuries. president trump promises he will repeal a law keeping churches out of the public square. >> among those freedom ofs is the right to worship according to our own beliefs. that's why i will get rid of and
totally december stroi the johnson amendment and allow our representatives of faith to speak freely and without fear of retribution. lou: pastor robert jeffress, one of trump's earliest supporters joins me next. stay with us. whether it's bringing cutting-edge wifi to 35,000 fans... or keeping a hotel's guests connected. businesses count on communication, and communication counts on centurylink.

lou: a new report shows the persecution of christians has increased and spread to nearly every continent in the world. 215 million christians are now facing degree of officers crucial. president trump took note of that and he vowed to crack down on that violence. >> we have seen unimaginable violence carried out in the name of religion. acts of wanton slaughter against religious minorities. morors on a scale that defy description. terrorism is a fundamental threat to religious freedom. it must be stopped and it will be stopped. lou: joining us pastor robert
jeffress from the first baptist church of dallas. ed the president serious as he can be about ending it. no equivocatn or qualification, binding it. your reaction. >> he and i talked about this a few weeks ago. he understands what a new report has said. christianity is the most percent cute religion in the world, 90,000 christians were slaughtered last year for their faith. what's interesting is 100 years ago the primary engine of persecution against christians was communism. day it's islam. nine of the ten top nations persecuting christians are muslim majority nations. which shows why president trump is correct in giving preference top christian refugees who are christians. syrian refugees who are christians. they can't go to other muslim countries, they face persecution
there and he's right to give preference to those refugees in our country. lou: the broad global persecution of christians eludes the national left-wing media and many of our citizens because we are myopic on the conflictsthin. even as we've ignore our borders, those are the conflicts we focus on. i want to turn to one of the conflicts if i may, between the law right now, churches and the faith community. the johnson amendment, the president vowed as he campaigned for the presidency, and he's swearing now as president, he's going to get that reversed. how critical is it in your judgment? >> it's very critical. he told me for the last year he's committed to getting rid of the johnson amendment. what it does win the's an i.r.s. provision that keeps churches from endorsing or opposing
political candidates. neither i or most pass towards i know want tone course political candidates from the pulpit. but liberal groups misuse the johnson amendment to prevent pastors from speaking out against any issue. pass towards are free to talk about anything they want to from the pull fit without fear of government reprisals. so the president is correct in this. lou: a year or two years after he go did you believe you have would be feeling as good as you must be about the direction of this country? >> i believe god intervened in this election. he has given us another chance as a country. i thought it was interesting to hear the president say how much it meant to him to hear the five words from people, i am praying for you. i think the president is being transparent. he feels the weight of this responsibility on his shoulders.
we need to pray for the president whether we voted for him or not. because if the president wins, all of america wins. 367. thanks so much. we appreciate it. up next, president trump offering up a poke and a prayer for arnold schwarzenegger and his so-called challenged ratings results on the "apprentice." >> the ratings went right down the tubes. it's been a total disaster, and mark will never bet against trump again. and i want to just pray for arnold if we can for those ratings. okay? lou: the president referring to mark burnett, the executive producer of the "apprentice" his old friend as well as business colleague. swoiarnold schwarzenegger took w shots his own because now he is talking about the president of the united states.
how did he do? gail trotter and mark simone join me next and we'll show you. stay with us. can i give it to you straight? that airline credit card you have... it could be better. it's time to shake things up. with the capital one venture card, you get double miles on everything you buy, not just airline purchases. seriously, think of all the things you buy. great...is this why you asked me to coffee? well yeah... but also to catch-up. what's in your wallet? this is one gorgeous truck. special edition. oh, did i say there's only one special edition? because, actually there's 5. aaaahh!! ooohh!! uh! holy mackerel. wow. nice. strength and style. which one's your favorite? come home with me! it's truck month! find your tag for an average total value over $11,000
why pause a spontaneous moment? cialis for daily use treats ed and the urinary symptoms of bph. tell your doctor about your medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, or adempas® for pulmonary hypertension, as this may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess. to avoid long-term injury, get medical help right away for an erection lasting more than four hours. if you have a sudden decrease or loss of hearing or vision, or an allergic reaction, stop taking cialis and get medical help right away. ask your doctor about cialis. just like the people every business is different. but every one of those businesses will need legal help as they age and grow. whether it be with customer contracts, agreements to lease a space or protecting your work. legalzoom's network of attorneys can help you, every step of the way. so you can focus on what you do and we'll handle the legal stuff

"i am going to protect and save your social security and your medicare. you made a deal a long time ago." now, it's congress' turn. tell them to protect medicare. lou: in our online poll we ask you, should senator mitch mcconnell go nuclear if the dems continue with their obstruction? only 94% of you said yes. we love that. we are building consensus here.
thank you for voting and please vote tonight as well. joining me, attorney, political analyst, gail trotter. radio talk show host mark simone. thank you for being here. let's start with milo yiannopoulos. u.c. berkeley, the great bastion of academic freedom that just ruled out the constitution. >> milo is such a brave, courageous young man. i had the opportunity to meet him at the republican convention in cleveland. he will not back down. he's a warrior for the first amendment. it's sad to see a public university not standing. you for if the freedom of speech and to see the violent protests erupt. lou: u.c. berkeley cancelled the speech two hours before anything happened. they didn't move police in to
stop the an aists. they said basically the hell with their responsibilities as a public institution. >> this is a university run by janet napolitano, the homeland security head who couldn't secure a campus for one night. the left, the democrats are digging their own grave. if this keeps going on, when you think democrat, you think of a limousine blowing up, you think of a rock being thrown through a window. you think of the democrats in the senate running from vote. blocking the confirmation of the president's nominees. >> he looked like sully sullenberger. he looked like a boy scout. i heard chuck schumer save he's far out of the mainstream. lou: schumer has lost his mind. you have known schumer for a long time.
the man is absolutely bereft of character and principle. he's operating as an opportunist. his actions are deplorable. he's loved by donors on both sides of the aisle. they love to say you can wake him up at 3:00 in the morning and he will do whatever you say. lou: donor service and head clown as president trump has branded him. let's turn to the confirmation process it looks like there is no way in the world the dems can do anything except bleat and pray like barnyard animals and accomplish nothing. these nominees are going through. >> president trump will have his cabinet. the democrats are echoing what they did in wisconsin when scott
walker was trying to get through legislation and they fled the state. i think democrats are trying to do the same thing in washington. yet president trump will have this cabinet and their efforts are creating a boil that president trump can say they are obstructionists, they are getting in the way of the people's business and they deserve to be punished in the mid-term elections in 2018. >> this is merely replacing scalia. they should have saved this for the next round that does change the balance. lou: there are others saying this was the perfect time for judge gorsuch to be -- his name to be put forward by the president. i tend to agree with you. if that was the game being played, the strategic game, i think he is definitely an ace. but appantly the heritage foundation and the federalist
society put together a list of 1 names that everyone is going to be thrilled with. >> everyone who loves the constitution will be thrilled with. lou: two things very quickly. serving notice on rwanda, missiles are launched. what do you think of the decision to put them on notice? what does it mean and will it be effective? >> you remember when president trump did this with syria and said he was drawing a red line. i think president trump is going to handle it a little different when he puts iran on notice. >> obama said the exact same words. nothing is off the table. it's the way obama hand it. lou: we'll see the consequences which is where the two men depart.
gail trotter, mark simone. we thank you for being with us. tonight i'm appearing with sean hannity on his show at 10:00 p.m. on the fox news channel. please join us. be back here tomorrow. we'll be be. good night from new york.
