whatever this parliament decides, the e.u. has to agree with it and who knows what they're going to say but up until now they haven't been fort coming. back to you. >> we'll be watching developments. ashley webster great panel have a great day thanks for joining us right to stuart varney we go with "varney & company." perjury good morning everyone to. are you ready for this? this is going to be an extremely big week especially for your money there's something big down the pike every single day for example today monday, profit parade rolls on started already. results from caterpillar have already hit the market look at that down 6%. tuesday, a l reports probably the biggest financial news item of the week. wednesday, trade talks with senior china officials and microsoft test will and facebook all report are that day. thursday, the federal reserve issues a statement of interest rates are big deal for the market. friday, the jobs report, probably influenced by
9:01 am
government shutdown all week long a standoff probably all week long in venezuela had is really putin versus trump. what a week all right here's how it's starting let's go back to caterpillar they told investors this morning that is profit this is year would not be a strongest hoped earlier. global slowdown hurts, the stock is taking a big heat, and a big hit i should say, and because it's a dow stock caterpillar is hurt the industrials overall. the dow will be down almost what, 200 points. the s&p on downside, and the tech heavy nasdaq will also be down. reopening the government that's not helped. perhaps because another shutdown is still possible in just three weeks time. there's more -- here comes starbucks for the presidency, and here comes arctic cold to 100 million people. "varney & company" is about to begin.
9:02 am
we're living at a most fragile time not only that the president is not qualified to be the president but the fact that both parties are consistently not doing what's necessary on behalf of the american people. and are engaged every single day in revenge plucks. >> let's get clear here that is formerrer starbucks chief and he says yes he's seriously considering run for the white house. outside the major parties he's running as a sen centuries independent. well, just a few minutes ago, the president tweeted about that. here we go. howard shuttle doesn't have guts to run for president watched him on "60 minutes" last night and i agree with him that he's not the smart pest person besides america already has that. i only hope that starbucks is still paying me their rent in trump tower okay that's classic
9:03 am
mr. trump from the presidency first thing this morning. now emac is with me. back to mr. shuttle if he runs well funded independent campaign that's a big threat to the democrats isn't it? >> democrats are recognizing that julian castro saying he'll get trump reelected if you run at the center for american progress is saying that same. she also intimated she wants boycott of starbucks products. it's trump runs -- excuse me howard shuttle runs, and she says with with center for american progress. she's saying, do not give a penny to starbucks or to guy's campaign because he's basically going to get trump reelected. >> now i've heard it all. >> you have heard it all but you know, he came out kind common se saying medicare for all will bankrupt that's the country that's what he's talking about also saying that 21 and a half trillion debt is reckless and bad from both parties is running at inextent data showses that
9:04 am
the independent run will split the democrat vote. so that's an issue for them. >> interesting that starbucks stock on now is down about 1 and third percent i wonder if that's anything to do with howard shuttle i don't know. who knows these things let's check futures overall look at your money big week coming down at the open probably 200 on the dow. that's by the same percentage the nasdaq is beginning to be down 56 points. look at this, dow component kat fill particular, to say that their profit fell short is understatement but they warned about lower profit this year 2019 it is a dow stock, and look at it go down. 6% lower for premarket caterpillar a lot going on this week as we told you, big tech earnings, china talks, jobs on friday. not to mention the federal reserve. joining us now is market watcher rich with the investment firm conning unfortunate name for an investment firm what are you doing? >> we're looking for submarines -- [laughter]
9:05 am
you've heard this one before and what's the biggest deal this week to really move the market tech earnings china talks, fed, job haves numbers. >> biggest deal this week for the long run is a fed and china like for first place because i think they have the most carry any of the others affect market in the short run but fed policy or breakdown in the china agreement potential agreement with the federal reserve it is what they say at 2:00 on thursday afternoon. because the issue is statement about whether they're coming from. now you don't think they'll raise interest rates on this week, do you? >> so what you're saying about interest rates for the rest of the year? >> i think begin in the long run more important what they do than what they say because they've said things that set people in the past and what they do going forward will affect markets. i think they try to say they're not going to do anything bad and i believe that. >> okay so that will be a positive if they say that in the way that you've said it, that's a plus.
9:06 am
now, china trade -- we don't have long to go before the march first deadline you looking for anything positive? >> looking for anything positive that could come out of these talks that suggest that we're still engaged. if these talks break down, then there are number of things in any outlook that are pretty positive but probably won't happen. we want to see something coming out of these discussions visitors -- that china visiting here that suggest there's still things to talk about progress to be made. a lot of confessionings have been made already on china. i think you don't if you're mr. trump you don't take your foot off peddle until there's an agreement in place. : lest propose the federal reserve says we will do no harm or to that effect. actually near that effect and some kind of movement forward on china trade. does market go up significantly? >> all in your head about what is significant but significant
9:07 am
already. >> can we helicopter that small change for the tao can we challenge that if we with get decent news on china and the fed? >> remember are i'm a bond guy, and bond guys worry for a living so we're with always worried about these things being -- overdone. but you know since the end of december we have a great recovery we have to keep on that trend. these earnings data here that we've just seen probably stop us from really pushing highs right away. but i think we get on uptrend again. >> rich thank you. joining us sir. now the shutdown it is over. that's history. it is over. but now they're talking about the immigration a possible deal. now, i see three possible outcomes of the end of these immigration talks. everybody got three weeks to do this. either there's going to be an agreement number one, number two we'll shutdown the government all over again or president trump will declare a state is of emergency. i think those are the three options. tom is with us. favorite guest on the show. he's former republican senator from oklahoma.
9:08 am
you're looking at that for? [laughter] >> three possible outcomes. third one is one that will happen. you think so -- do you think -- congressional research is congress's own research arm has already said he has all a of the authority he needs to allow the army and to use other funds to do this wall. >> so -- how do you defend a position that's against what you rely on all of the time as far as law? which is the congressional research service in many so they know that at the white house. that's his ace carp i'm going to do this so you can make me do it. that's fine. but i've got the authority to do it and you can sue all you want you're not going to win because it's already been research ared or you can come to the table and let's do something. so he's not -- but i don't think we have another ship now. i think we come to an a agreement or he just does it. >> simple as that. empletion i i do now china theye
9:09 am
waving the president he's negotiating very closely with this government shutdown with immigration they're watching. they want pointers on how he negotiates on trade. he'll give a little bit to get something as long as he's got a backstop. >> do you think he caved on shutdown? >> no. because he he know he knows he n always ultimately win this issue and if you poll it but you can win it by doing it. but that remains to be seen everybody ignores the middle of the country who elected him? you know, the foam that were absolutely fed up with washington as usual. you think they're not fed up with with washington as usual? >> what are those middle americans hearing? they're hearing from the media. which detest donald trump and won't give him an out for credit for anything. >> stuart but same thing is before the election you couldn't hardly find a trump sign. except all of those yards that didn't have a trump sign went voted for him. they don't like the guy. they're m barszed by what some
9:10 am
of the things he does. but they know versus the other side, that's the best way to go. so you know,s it's a mixed bag. for those of us who want to see a working, functioning senate and not working with and not functioning and hasn't been for four or five years. let's get something done. and a so he's the kind of i buy that says okay you're not going we're going to do it i promise people to do it i have authority to do it. ly do it so here's what's coming you can spend time in court you want but i've already got this thing won or sit down to negotiate. and remember give up ka if they don't negotiate with him. >> count in 2020. probably would. i always have to ask you this question. you well? >> i'm well. >> you knew what the question was -- great to see you. great to see you. all of you much oblige to you. check futures where rewe going afraid we've taken a little bit a trip further south. now, if look like we're going to be down 230 points almost 1% and
9:11 am

9:14 am
9:15 am
all right here's why the nasdaq took another leg south on a big one. look at a stock that is down really big down what had 14% it is lowered its guidance and looked forward said not going to be great on revenue and gross profit margins. emac let me turn to you for a second it is a chip maker are ores -- >> semiconductor amd intel they're taking hits too. you know, the thing is -- it looks like it is mixing up its business model mix moving away from robot carses that gave a weak forecast so this stock is taking a walloping in trading right now. 14% down is huge. i just wonder when trading gets going today if other big name technology companies will be down a little bit in sympathy with what we've seen from video. >> earnings week so this is a big time. all right that down 22 bucks
9:16 am
that's 14%. that's a whopping great big drop. that will be a factor today. let's get to venezuela it has indeed backed down on demand that american diplomats leave the country e they say they are open to talks meanwhile maduro is demanding that the military be loyal to him because -- defected he turned around said i want a pledge of loyalty from you guys an about he got. joins us now wall street journalist mary o'grady on ton of this for many, many years actually. look, i think to some degree this is a stand-up between russia and america. the russians have got ten billion dollar it is invested in venezuela and some military assets too they don't want to lose that they're going to back maduro. >> i think you raise a good point but i think it is a little bit more complicated than that because don't forget china -- >> 65 billion there and they're owed repaid through the oil that is coming out of the ground which is -- you know, bringing less and less oil up. but i think what's going to
9:17 am
happen here -- and what we have to keep our eye on we're stuck in the fog of war right now. but we should pay attention to the fact that there's a lot of violence twoing that's not being reported. this violence is between the national guard and -- groups of people in slums and very poor neighborhoods who have traditionally for all of these years been supporters and later of this regime. these groups are clashing. why? because these or very poor people can't get food, can't get water, can't get electricity. can't get jobs, i mean they're literally desperate, and so they are fighting these armed forces. now, you know, i think that news that we saw over the weekend that russia is bringing paramilitary we don't know how many into the country as we've talked about before cuba has a lot of interest hanging on this piece of real estate so they're going to be there in big force. the question to me is -- will the fact that 30 million
9:18 am
venezuelans want this guy gone, want new elections, will that be enough to basically you know forestall any survival of maduro and i want to raise one other thing which i broke this news in my column this morning had is that the u.s. has officially said to why, though, the interim president you now control all of the assets at the new york federal reserve that belong to venezuela, and any of the assets in u.s. -- in u.s. banks that are guaranteed by the u.s. government. the bank of england on friday refused to maduro tried to draw on 1.2 billion of gold reserve, the bank of england said no. so -- the strategy, the strategy among the civilized countries is basically financial right now. pane i think that's good for now. because i worry about getting, you know, stuck into a wire there. rng there's no going back to it.
9:19 am
maduro will go back because you know they don't like maduro they haven't for a long time. chavez had had a halo. but he doesn't have that. >> just a question of how do you get this guy out? do you get hill out by denying any money at all? and diplomatic recognition or -- >> one of the things that we really need but i think we need to also prepared that it could get very ugly on the ground because i do think cuba and russia were used paramilitary and the national guard and anybody they have left to basically hand the hand combat. >> i'm sorry to rush you like this but i'm out of time. >> thank you you're right are on top it have. come become and see us. thank you. check futures please. where are we now? down -- 230 points for the dow. and a big drop are for the nasdaq following nasty stock decline. by the way, about about to get cold and, i mean, really cold we're talking temperatures as low as -- it say on my script minus 60 epg

9:32 am
i think the most important thing this week and the big focal point is going to be tech earnings because tech have driven a good percentage of the s&p in past two years i think it is an ugly week for tech earnings i think that's gong to take center stage. >> look at this nvidia that is a tech stock that has recently in a high flyer to chip maker it is down really big at lowered its guidance what's this all about? >> so they lowered their guidance dramatically to report earn ongs february 14th but to get ahead of that, to teacher market they've told they have charges in china so different from intel because it makes fast gaming graphics in chip also for cryptomoney to these are slowing down at this point. but you know, this is in line with other chip problems that we've seen intel recently lowering their guidance. and seeing china is not backing them. >> so this was a preannouncement

they don't report february the 14th but came out today and said hey watch out. >> taking the hit now. is this bad news for other tech stocks? >> it is and keep in mind apple had a preannouncement and now they're beginning to even have worse or in my opinion we're gong to have worse earnings than their preannouncement when you start to get that you get that trend of preannouncement and earnings that work. >> apple as i say guided lower there's like a 14% drop in iphone shipments and really get worse than that. isn't there mo, is usually the guy or for conservative number and they cool out way ahead of that. >> generally. but i think this is going to break that pattern i think we're going to see -- earnings that are had worse than people expect it. i think, i think apple warning was smart but i still think they're going to -- >> but the first that it doesn't break out unit sales so on the call you going to buy nintendo

the middle surely, that's a problem for democrats isn't it? >> i think it too early to tell when independent candidates. >> don't walk away from the question come on you have the democrats, march, marching to the left. and up pops a multibillionaire guy with a track record of oning a business. might run as an independent. you're not telling me that too early to tell whether the democrats take a hit. >> he's running as a centrist as he said in the 60 minute interview last night an issue he cares about is 21 trillion dollar national debt. it is unclear how either party deal requests any of the big chalgs facing the country when other half the of the country is absolutely opposed to what they do. he's running to give another option potentially, and when centrist inextents run for office in the past whether john anderson on in 1992, the exit poll show they draw equally from both sides question is can he draw enough votes to actually win and i think -- it's possible in our politics today. too article to tell you have to
9:47 am
mac a judgment. >> look, i think most likely that he'll pull from both parties because people in this country right now are dissatisfy with both. they don't feel well represented by either and rested for a viable alternative and what they're for a trump candidate city they have resources to get his name ballot but to present himself as a credible candidate. >> that's why i say scare the democrats to death. >> they are scared to death, and you know, for a party that cares a lot about voter suppression and then. who was it who said they're going boycott starbucks? >> she's a center for american progress. way with out there on the left. she wants to boycott starbucks because of this. >> i think it is reare dig louse they talk about voter suppression engaged in candidate suppression right now. it doesn't say a way to believe but limit choices that voters have instead what needs to be done is fix our electoral system if we have a system of rank trace voting to rank candidates instead of taking one better
9:48 am
reflect voter preference and do you think howard schultz can win he's a multibillionaire. he's from new york. and he's jewish, can he win? >> i think this election will come down to who has right vision and ideas for the country and end who can bring us back together. america is more divide than we've been since the civil war i think people want to leader who is able it unit us and not divide us. but that's the question -- he has to do twos to win in this considerate a lot of people don't like billionaires and there is to some degree some anti-semitic feeling in about this country hey that's the way it is. okay so do you think it can win with those two things against him? >> i don't think he could win if he didn't have resources as an independent without the party structure without being able to put money into the race are. but what he has to do to make leer is if he doesn't have a path to victory clear if he does win that will give people to support him leading up to election day. >> nick, thank you very much indeed for joining us we

companies moving families out it cost much more to rent -- a moving van to move out of california than to move in. but california is largely left now with middle class leaving small businesses, leaving and you're largely left with coastal liberal elite that can afford it and the inland working poor now remember california is also a sanctuary state. over a million illegal aliens living in los angeles alone. so you might have a lot of citizens middle class, leaving but still importing all of working pour and they're just not really contradicting much to california so now they're raising taxes on a lot of other issues that are concerning middle class families. >> paul did you see the report which we broadcast last week. it was a research or operation from wealth x. they pointed out that 5,700 millionaires had left new jersey, new york city, that area 5,700 million had had left in 2018. that's what you're talking about from california. isn't it? >> it is, and they're not just

9:59 am
10:00 am
stuart: you think the enat that immigration crisis is limited to our southern border? think again. look at the headline from "wall street journal." maine's largest city, strains under asylum seeker influx. that is portland, maine. close to our northern border. just as we were digesting that headline, we find that the caravan approaching our southern border is now over 12,000 strong and growing daily. the trump-pelosi standoff did not resolve this crisis. in fact by keeping it going, the failed attempt to get serious about border security probably made it worse. after you will, why not challenge america's border if america can't figure out how to secure it? and this crisis is not just
10:01 am
about security. it is also about the whole asylum system. the rule now is this, you get in, a lawyer tells you what to say at your asylum hearing. the judge tells you to come back months and months later, you don't come back, you meld into the shadows, sitting there waiting for some kind of amnesty. there are 800,000 people waiting for asylum hearings right now. that is why portland, maine, is so stressed. their shelters are full. 90% of their occupants are african asylum-seekers. president trump wants to reform the rules. senator schumer, speaker pelosi, are strongly resisting that. a seven teen member panel with democrats and republicans, senators and house members that is now meeting, trying to get some kind of deal before the next possible shutdown. good luck. it is very difficult to see immigration asylum, border security, anytime in the near
10:02 am
future. in other words, they will still be the big issues in 2020 in the election. by then countless more people will have crossed the border illegally. countless more people will be asylum hearing no-shows and countless local authorities will be financially strapped like portland, maine, we'll pay a price for a generation of immigration dithering. the second hour of "varney & company" is about to begin. ♪ stuart: not quite the low of the day but pretty close. we're down 355 points. that is the best part of 1 1/2%. lots of stuff going on this week and we started badly. check one dow component, that would be caterpillar, that is the biggest drag on the dow right now. they warned about lower profits later this year and the stock is taken to the cleaners down 8%.

here is another one that did the same thing, lowered its guidance for the future. that would be nvidia and that is now down 15 1/2%. that is a whopping drop. nearly $25 down. four big tech companies report this week apple tomorrow. facebook and microsoft wednesday, amazon on thursday. all of them down in advance of their official reports. keith fitz-gerald, money map press chief strategist. i read your stuff. you say get out there and buy microsoft and buy apple now before their earnings. as i said, that's bold. make your case. >> absolutely. i think microsoft may in fact be the best of the big tech right now. they have been moving from public cloud computing into a hybrid corporate version of it which means they have 60% margins, they have on-premise software. lots of things contributing to revenue, great stability and innovation.
10:04 am
apple the key here is still misunderstood. people will still looking to the iphone but the narrative is changing. it is all about the devices and services. that may take a hit later in the week, but again if you have the right perspective don't worry about buying. amazon, same, crowded trade but longer term that is a company you want to own. stuart: when you say longer term, apple and microsoft, you say longer term, what is longer term? is that two years down the road if you're investing two or three years, is that it? >> you know that varies obviously investor by investor. i am looking to stuff i want to own when i am 60, 70, 80 years of age. stuff i don't want to be without for lack of a better description. stuart: i'm 70, i got microsoft, you're telling me don't touch it? >> exactly. stuart: let me refer you to nvidia. now there is a tech stock. that is just being taken to the cleaners today. have you seen it? it is down 15%. $25 down. doesn't that indicate a few
10:05 am
problems for the apples and microsofts of this world? >> no. it indicates problems with nvidia. they have some supply chain issue. they may have oversupplied. they may have inventory. i missed this one. i thought nvidia would be rebounding by now and it has up until the last report. here too the world will not get any simpler. what they make is stuff we got to have. they make the best chips in the bests, best sets in the business, best software in the business. to me this is a buying opportunity. stuart: do you own it, by the way? >> i do not. full disclosure i do not own it at the present time. stuart: i will switch gears, you're saying, i read your stuff, millenials are going to kill harley-davidson. make your case on that one. >> absolutely. the only question is how fast. you have a generation of younger riders. harley is producing a bunch of new motorcycles are absolutely gorgeous but all at 25, $30,000 a pop. you have younger, hipper riders,

10:07 am
lawrence jones with us, fox news contributor. lawrence, i don't see any way around this. this is a crisis. i can't see it getting resolved. what say you? >> it won't get resolved until congress decides to do their job on this issue. a bottom line a lot of people going through the asylum process because they want to go around the current immigration process because it is broken. we can't have that. congress has to address this issue. come up with a comprehensive immigration package. i think the president is flexible on this issue. but there is one catch, stuart. there has to be some type of border security package before we start talking about fixing the broken immigration system. and because members of congress can't walk and chew gum at the same time, i don't see this being resolved anytime soon. stuart: i'm with you on that. i think it is an issue for 2020. case closed. no way around it, i don't think. >> yep. stuart: as you know, lawrence, senator kamala harris kicked off
10:08 am
her 2020 presidential bid. she mentioned dem care for all. the democrats are taking the party more to the left it seems to me. what do you say, lawrence? >> they want free stuff, stuart. whether you're talking about aoc who represents the bronx area or the kamala harris, i think that they feel like that's where the energy is leading. is at and they feel a need to run to the left to win the primary. the problem is going to come to play for all these presidential candidates when it comes to a general election and reasonable people don't believe in wealth redistribution that is only way they pay for this stuff, if they start taking money from people that earned this money and paying for these programs. i think that is going to be a tough sell come the general election of 2020. stuart: quick question, lawrence. in my opinion, of all the democrats who may or, will run for the presidency, 2020, joe biden seems to me the to have the best chance because he is slap-bang in the middle. >> is in the middle, stuart.
10:09 am
they're even pushing him to the left. he is a reasonable guy. he is an old school democrat that doesn't believe in overtaxing people, socialism program but he has to win that primary race. so they're going to push him, especially the younger crowd, will push him farther to the left. that will be make it harder for him to beat president trump. stuart: you got it right onstua. congressional budget office, cbo, releasing some numbers on the shutdown. liz: i don't have the numbers. stuart: you don't have the numbers yet? liz: not yet. we're waiting for them. stuart: stay tuned, everyone. we'll have the numbers. okay. the shutdown .4% away from our gdp, size of the economy in the first quarter. liz: then. the thinking is it will come back in the next quarter. stuart: i'm pretty sure it would but the initial impact is a minus .4% taken out of gdp this

10:16 am
square feet of space. once we signed the lease with moody's it wasn't difficult to lease the balance of the building. so we leased million 700,000 square feet pretty rapidly to private enterprise. good quality tenants, first class tenants who believed what we told them, that we would rebuild the world trade center t would be better, bigger, finer than ever. stuart: there was no serious worry on the part of moody's and others going back into the trade center buildings about security? >> none. none at all. stuart: they didn't voice -- >> they didn't voice it but didn't execute the way they signed leases for the entire building, long-term leases and it just gave us a very positive boost. stuart: is it now back? can you say downtown is back fully? >> downtown is back almost fully. the reason i say almost fully, two buildings are left in the trade center. there is performing arts center
10:17 am
that ronald perelman funded for us. that is 400 million-dollar project which by 202 will be operational and it will be a performing arts center with completely new venue for lower manhattan that part of the city, for any kind of performances that you can request. additionally the last office building to go up in the trade center will be 2 world trade center. as soon as we find occupants of that, we'll start that. i would say by 2022 we should be finished. stuart: you know you have a reputation, don't you? >> i hope a good one? stuart: you have a reputation for being one of the most ferocious negotiators. you never back off, you never back down, you always get what you want? >> well, that -- stuart: take that. >> that sounds like an underserved -- stuart: [laughter]. just, so i'm told, larry. that is what they tell me. >> oh, okay.

expecting this deceleration. over the past quarter we have seen markets are getting a reality check and we'll not keep that 3% growth rate going forward. stuart: suppose you're right, we get 2.25 growth in 2019, would we still be a standout economy? i think our growth rate would still be better than europe, japan, probably, right? >> yeah. it is a pretty strong growth rate. it is still above the u.s. potential growth rate. so if you think of a steady state, what would the normal growth rate be for the u.s. economy, a little bit lower than that, probably around 2%. and the important part of that, is when you're growing above that potential rate or above your normal growth rate if you will that tends to create more jobs and drive the unemployment rate down. it is still strength in the u.s. economy. it is still around the average we had over the course of this recovery and we'll continue to generate jobs. as you point out, still stronger than a lot of larger economies. stuart: when i was younger,
10:33 am
1980s, early 1990s the normal, acceptable, expected growth rate for america's economy was much more like 3%. now you're saying it is 2%. what changed? what's the problem? >> well the biggest drivers of long-term growth are the growth of your labor force and the growth of productivity for the workers in your economy. those two things determine your long term rate and one of the key things we had is a slowdown in population growth. by extension a slowdown in the growth of labor force. when you have retirement of the baby boomer generation. we recently had slower productivity that generates those lower numbers, but it doesn't mean it is an unhealthy economy. it means the structure is little different than it was in the 1980s. by the way, i was younger then too, stuart. stuart: weren't we all at one point? let's suppose we get some kind of settlement with china on the trade deal and let's suppose that the federal reserve keeps
10:34 am
interest rates pretty much where they are now, no serious rate increases, would that change your forecast for 2.25% growth for america? >> no, that is pretty much our baseline expectation for this year. we're perhaps expecting one or even a second-rate hike. and things along in the economy is still doing well. the first thing you asked about the trade deal is really the big wild card here. it is other expectation we'll emerge at some point with some kind of a trade deal that puts off, does not implement all the tariffs that have been threatened and promised, proposed, all the retaliation. if those come into force we would be revising down our expectations both for economy and our markets. baseline expectation we will emerge with some kind of a deal, but not without rockiness along the way. stuart: we'll leave it at that. 2.25% what you see. luke tilly everyone. >> thank you. stuart: switching gears to venezuela.

10:36 am
a civil war, do you think it will come to that? >> i certainly hope not but at this point you have got angry mobs in the streets. people are starving, they're hungry. they're lacking basic necessities of life. it only takes one small instance to turn to that i fear that is on the verge what we're going to see. stuart: you're a former military operative. i'm sure cia is active in venezuela. you can't confirm that but i'm sure they are. are they engaged in getting generals out, maduro out peacefully, getting them out of the country like we did with president marcos in the philippines? >> if you look at maduro. he is a very narcissistic human being, who believes he can take this back. he was trying to rally the troops trying to bring the army back to his side appearing in front of the prior leader of the country to rally his troops while it is slowing slipping through his hands.

asylum-seekers, isn't it? you have 800,000 in the country already. we don't know where they are. they are probably won't return for their asylum hearing. that is the crux of this problem, isn't it, asylum-seekers? >> well, that's correct. it is actually twofold. it is just as the president laid out this past saturday for the american people. not only do we have a national security crisis because 60% of the southwest border is wide open and the cartels are exploiting that gap every single day, what this caravan represents and what maine is experiencing is the second half of what the president laid out and that is we have a humanitarian crisis. in 2014 when we saw the onslaught of unaccompanied minors and children seeking asylum, then president obama called it a humanitarian crisis. in 2016, when i was chief, i called it a humanitarian crisis. and now, the numbers are increasing. it is not manufactured. it is real. we have a humanitarian crisis. stuart: now we've got a 17-member board, republicans and
10:46 am
democrats, senators and house members. they started to meet now, trying to get some kind of a resolution to the border crisis. in the next three weeks. i don't think they will get anything done in the next three weeks. frankly i don't see this crisis being resolved until we get the 2020 election. what say you? >> unfortunately i feel a little bit as you do. what i'm hoping that the president does is use everything that is afforded to him in the constitution of this great country so that they first addresses that national security crisis. as part of that multilayer strategy, infrastructure, technology, and personnel, i hope he gets the wall, i hope he adds technology and i hopes he adds personnel to at least close doesn't open border that we have to stop bad people and bad things coming in. once we do that, then maybe congress can get together to start working on the loopholes in asylum and rest of the immigration issues we have in this country.

stuart: to start the week on wall street down 300 points about one and a quarter%. a sea of red amongst the dow 30. pope francis slamming social media, warning that these types lead to spirals of hatred. joining us now is john mayer, partner that transparent ventures and he's our visionary guy who looks to the future about these things. give me your reaction to what the pope had to say about social media. >> the pope believe it or not is pretty in line with where my views are right now as far as social media goes. what is interesting is that it does go a bit about social media. this is a conversation that is really necessary around tech industry and the data of much of the tech industry has on you, which as they mention is how do we dominate by the social media
11:30 am
company. specifically dangerous in my opinion again the fact that in the u.s. we still don't have any ability as a citizen who owns your data on where you live, where you go to school, how many kids you have. we still don't have any ability to be in full control over that. one of the things i've had a lot of thoughts about recently is the need for the u.s. to pass legislation to specifically allow a citizen in the united states to go to a very simple website and control whether that is or take the personal data they have on you. the spirals of page read in all but the pope mentioned, much of it comes from completely fake and are manipulated content being targeted towards you and social media. stuart: it's highly unlikely that we get that kind of
11:31 am
legislation. >> i think i will definitely be very unlikely. stuart: adapted the a complete reversal of fakes books business model and google, too. >> exactly. as time goes by it becomes an even larger ratio because as time goes by the revenue and his companies like facebook continue to grow and so does their lobbying budget and after. at this point i think what we are seeing us are talking about this now, there is a larger conversation happening is continuing to grow amongst the american public and we don't really have an ability to remove our data from any of these companies servers if we like because it's wanting to believe that with so your birthday, your face but profile. but that doesn't take it off of their servers. facebook still has a complete history of every comment come everything you searched,
11:32 am
everyone you friended. stuart: it's frightening. it really is. facebook has been getting hit with a lot of bad publicity, bad headlines lately. but no one else i'm love instagram, which facebook owns. does that mean facebook stock is essentially immune from all the bad pr because millennial so stay with facebook. >> it's a funny point you bring up. very true. most millennial still not realized instagram is on by facebook. one of the interesting things that i was sort of puzzled by over the last few days is facebook has just announced the plans to be assigned infrastructure of instagram, what's up in facebook together said the same data is going to be used on these other wraps. so when that happens and they're estimating it will take at least
11:33 am
a year or two to combine these three major social media platforms when that does happen users will naturally begin to recognize the fact that all three services around by facebook. whatever reason they're going in this direction facebook is quite honestly running a bit of a lucky wave right now on the fact most instagram users don't realize yet just how in control facebook is of the same data as well. stuart: you are right. it's frightening to me they know absolutely everything about you. and i mean everything. just don't like that. sorry. just don't like it. john, thanks for joining us as always. we'll be back to you shortly. facebook stepping up in this information about upcoming elections. lauren simonetti is here. what are they doing?
11:34 am
>> three things. political ad transparency. who put out the advertisement, who did it target in a public database where you can search on this site. number two, fact checkers. they won't populate as high. 30,000 employees. that can monitor the safety and security analogy into the bottom line. can i quickly comment on something john just said. facebook owns instagram what stop messenger. if they put all of them on the same platform, that could be a way that regulators can say you're too big to break up or to fight off the regulators in a sense. what facebook is doing with this, protecting themselves or foreign interference as best they can, they send a message to regulators we are on it. leave us alone. stuart: i think that's a very good point to make. they feel the attacks coming out
11:35 am
to them. they will defend themselves any which way they can and that may well be a defensive measure. that's for sure. i want to talk to you about robot. kroger using robots to deliver groceries to your front door. what's this all about? >> that is they are won by a company called mero and they're doing that in one zip code in arizona, very friendly artificial intelligence. why would you want -- you have to pay for this. place your order at the grocery store and made slippery to you, but like a little robot doesn't come out and go to your doorstep. you have to get out of your house go to the robot, type in a code and you pay for that. so why is this such a big deal? because it's a much stronger vehicle and they built it to be safe so customers can say other
11:36 am
cars on the road don't have to be so scared. stuart: that's the reasoning. it seems to be prototypical. a prototype of what we see down the road when delivery really matures, robots really matured and we do indeed get everything delivered. >> because otherwise you can use a nap on a spurious for instance. why would you something smaller different like that. i will pay good money for that. thank you very much indeed. now this. a new poll shows 15% of california residents are seriously considering leaving the states. not happy with the way it's run, especially the high cost of living and high taxes. we'll cover that story for you and more in california. governor gavin newsom is now calling on largest silicon valley to get the state $500 million to help build
11:37 am
affordable housing. got it. former starbucks chief howard schultz says these seriously think about running for the presidency 2020. president trump treated about that. howard schultz doesn't have the guts to run for president. watched him on 60 minutes last night and i agree with him that he is not the smartest person besides america already has that. i only hope that starbucks is still paying me their rent in trump tower. check the stock, please. starbucks is virtually unchanged. down 1%. >> the president should be egging on howard schultz because the democrat and get him reelected. the chair of the democratic state party in washington state say no to you howard schultz, don't do it.
11:38 am
democrats running as an independent with a few billion dollars. liz: he was asked by scott pelley, would you spend 500 million. he's against medicare for all. he is saying country can afford it. talking about the debt. that could be appealing to 40% who are registered as independent. stuart: he's quite a threat to the democrats. my opinion that you share at least. some people have been receiving more of those annoying robocalls. it is because a national do-not-call registry website was shut down during the government closure. talking to the company that targets robocalls so you don't get them on the show today.
11:39 am
on the shutdown i say there are three options now. number one, shut down the government again. number two, reach some kind of deal. number three, trump declares an emergency. which one will it be? we are on it.
11:40 am
11:41 am
>> all right, we are back taking a look at two stocks. alphabet, google and amazon. some analysts are saying this are saying these companies will be the future of electricity, managing electricity in the home. do we call google in 2014. amazon of course has amazon home services. also a company called ringley $4 billion. one of the former ceos of energy and energy sane these companies are the future because they have the data. more in just two minutes. keep it right here on fox business.

stuart: the longest government shut down in history may be over but the president still wants funding for the border wall. republican from pennsylvania is with us now. i think there's three possible outcomes here for where we are now. one, reach a deal. two, shut a government down again. three, declared national
11:44 am
emergency. senator tom coburn on the show said he thinks it's going to be a national emergency declaration. which one do you think it will be? >> i think we are going one way or another to secure our borders. the president has relented very temporarily shared for the good of our country not to score some cheap short-term political point. he's been negotiating in good faith and frankly so has the republican leadership. tim mccarthy, liz cheney, steve scalise have all been working to secure our border and open our government. the people of my district, the ninth congressional are more than just frustrated. they realize here in pennsylvania that we've got to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time in congress. i come for the business world in this level focus on results, this lack of result is more than just frustrating and it's time
11:45 am
to get something done. the president and the republicans lost. back off and reopen the government. >> again, the president have to do what he had to do in the short-term. his focus is on securing our border. stuart: will he lose again if they go through all of this all over again and were shut down the government. does he lose all over again? >> no, he won't. other options at his disposal. speaker pelosi took a victory lap here. they made the situation worse. we have a real order crisis. 400,000 illegals coming across that were apprehended. another 400,000 that were apprehended. 17,000 apprehended a criminal record. 90% of heroin in the next congressional throughout the country. we have the worst drug epidemic
11:46 am
in the history of our country. get the democrat leadership continues to say this is fabricated and they will provide a border wall and meanwhile border security as well as dhs, and they tell us that's exactly what we need. we've got to stop the nonsense. republicans are together on this. >> at the president declared a national emergency as a way to stop this nonsense on the border, with the full republican party back in and let the people of america backend? >> i believe so. the next steps here did set up a conference with 17 conferees, some good people on there from the house. so they are going to do their best to counter resolution. i don't know how hopeful i am but it must get done. come february 15th we have not reached a resolution that includes the barrier, but
11:47 am
include some sort of a wall where the border security says we need it, then the president has the absolute authority to declare national urgency and provide the funding to build the necessary barrier. i was supportive. stuart: congressmen, clean-cut and we appreciate that. we'll see you again soon. quick story on apple. the patent for sensors that could detect the presence of horrible gases like carbon monoxide. they might include defenses on future iphone and apple watches. the new sensors which might be coming on your devices. rococo's say they will rollout premium subscriptions on the streaming channel. no word on the price. that is nearly 3%. we've got to check the big board because very close to the low of

the day. we were down 390. now we are down 380. >> i'm very optimistic. but then, we've traced 3 trillion market wealth since i fell out. stuart: the problem is it's the start of a very big week. we've got the federal reserve meeting tomorrow. consumer confidence number coming out tomorrow. but that about a quarter of the s&p 500. coming out of the s&p 500 up 15%. pretty decent. stuart: we just had a fresh low. good timing. liz: here's the thing, stuart. no recessions. there's no indication it's going to be a recession. don't see it. stuart: down 390. the company of which target pose

11:54 am
does that mean the robocalls will stop? >> no, the chaos ensues especially three weeks are now who knows what's going to happen. we definitely have a high likelihood of this problem getting worse and worse and we expect a record number this on the five-point 4 billion. stuart: this month in the united states of america there will be five-point 4 billion of robocalls? >> what could be. they annoy the devil out of me as better tell you. if i get your app on my phone, what is it to you when robocalls come in? >> you set it up. protected from over a million. your phone will ring. in the background were going to answer those calls with robots of our run to waste their time. helps to get a little revenge, but also serves an important purpose because the time were wasting his time they can't talk

to you or to someone's elderly grandmother. they can't steal their money or identity. stuart: can i still make a phone call or using a phone for all your app is doing with the robocall. >> 100%. we've had them on the phone with these guys for over an hour which are found not taking it. that's happening on the back and. stuart: but the caller will know there's a live person on my phone. bill novak. >> they think they're talking to a real human being. stuart: if i ever drop your app, those will kill me. in other words you got to keep it on the phone forever. >> even without us you need something to protect you. 4 billion this month. everybody has the potential to them and getting annoyed. you need to protect yourself, but everybody needs something to protect them selves. stuart: you are admitting i am in for life on time and.
